Aug 19th 2011 2:26PM Looks kinda like paintball to me. granted a few more tricks but about the same.

WoW Archivist: The Gates of Ahn'Qiraj {WoW}

Apr 19th 2011 1:58PM Ah yes remember this event, was there when they opened the gates for the very first time in the game. So many lvl one naked alts from other servers. Probably would have been faster to ride my mount from Auburdine to Silithus at the time too. Took 3 hrs to fly due to it being reset over and over again.

The Queue: Trollface.jpg {WoW}

Mar 4th 2011 11:46AM It used to be that the relic we carried would substitute for needing the 4 totems in our bags. Through me for a loop first time I saw it too.

Breakfast Topic: Real ID or Real bad IDea? {WoW}

Jul 7th 2010 6:22PM Here is an interesting thing. If you use a game card to create your account you can use any name you want. This means that if you want to troll you don't have to use your real name and so don't have to worry about repercussions for your actions.

Addon devs respond to Blizzard UI policy changes {WoW}

Mar 23rd 2009 7:01PM for me personally I have a problem with what blizzard is doing. In a sense they are not taking advantage of what free enterprise is all about. They have created a great game that many people enjoy playing and they continue to gather in their $15 a month from each of those people who have come into the game. If a person is able to come up with something that they believe will enhance the game for others I personally see no reason for them not to ask a fee. It then becomes the users decision whether that fee will be paid and thus if the developer has come up with something that is worth paying. Personally if carbonite had made it a free2play with adds which from what I hear they have I would have dropped that addon faster than a hot brick. I don't need it that badly and don't feel the need to pay for it. If others want to pay for it then the developers need to decide if they are making enough off of what they are developing and go from there.

The addons that are asking for money but not supplying what they want to be paid for will fall by the wayside. Only analogy that I could come up with is Person has a pool installed into their backyard, now there comes along a kid that is willing to clean that pool. If the kid decides he wants to be paid to clean the pool it is the owners decision to pay the kid to clean it or clean it himself or find someone else that will clean it for free. Should we get mad at the kid for asking to be paid for cleaning the pool? No, he sees a market and decides he wants to use that market. If he gets no money from people for cleaning then he won't clean anymore or he will go back to cleaning for free.

It is supply and demand. As long as there are people who are interested in paying for the items I see no reason for the things to be available. Its not like it actually dips into Blizzards pockets if people are paying for these services. To be honest it is almost like Bliz being mad about me using Ventrillo or forums for raids. They are there to enhance the game even though they aren't through Blizzard itself.
