There isn't anything wrong with Varian. He's full of anger and sadness over everything he's been through. He doesn't shove all of it down like Jaina does. However, there's a difference between respecting and deeply caring for someone and actually loving them in a companionship kind of way. I see their relationship as more of a sibling kind of caring. We know that he's capable of compassion, it showed in ICC. However, the situation was a father taking care of his fallen son. Anduin means the world to Varian. Any parent who truly loves their child(ren) can relate to that. However, all that being said, I don't think Varian needs or wants a companion. I also don't think he could ever get over the death of his wife.
Then, there's Jaina. She may want a companion. Most people do. I just think it would take a lot for her to get past what happened to Arthas. She really loved him and sometimes you never fully get over what could have been. I don't see her loathing in self pity because of what happened to him. I just think she knows deep down, that there was nothing anyone could do or say to prevent it.
While they may be "perfect" for each other and they made need each other. I don't think the need is companionship. It's a "I know what you've been through" shoulder, much like how siblings take care of each other.

I totally agree. However, I do find it understandable when you're really angry about something in a few choice words.
There maybe a difference to you. However, to people that have gotten over needing to use certain words as adjectives and the like, there isn't. I convey my disdain towards something quite tastefully without needing to use them at all. To me an educated person isn't going to spout their ignorance by spewing forth fowl words and actually use the vocabulary they were taught in school.

10 pm bedtime on a weekend for a 12 y/o? I'd agree if the child was a few years younger, but even at 10 my parents let me stay up until 11 on the weekends.
However, I do agree with you on the fact that the child is playing a game that is rated above his age group. A good gaming parent would either not allow them to play or monitor their playing more closely. When playing any games, my parents always had a certain hour that they were to be turned off by.
If anything, Enraged Mom probably scarred the child herself by going off in chat like that. Parents are far more embarrassing and scarring than anything that I've ever see roll across my chat log. That poor kid is probably never going to play again for something he may have not even been paying attention to, because he's far too embarrassed to play the toons that that guild knows about.
I have one question for Enraged Mom (being a mother myself,) Are you more upset that this happened or that you were basically caught not monitoring your child's online habits?
Nov 16th 2010 8:14AM I love people that think calling someone a kid while saying something very childish. Super counterproductive and only makes themselves look bad.
You're entitled to your opinion. However, stating your opinion in a way that makes you look like you're 7 and mommy is trying to get you eat your veggies is very unappealing and setting yourself up for attack. Then you come back with "If I wanted your opinion" and calling someone a kid isn't going to make you look much like an adult yourself. If you don't want someone's opinion, don't give your own.
Nov 16th 2010 8:07AM This is just a data patch. The only thing you'd notice is bug fixes and a few new tools.
Nov 16th 2010 8:06AM As someone that has played for 6 years, I'm excited about the changes. I love the game as is and I love to level toons. However, they're giving a whole new flow to the zones, new quests, better quest rewards, and a whole new story. Don't think of change as a bad thing, think of it as exciting, like zomg new toys exciting!

Mar 31st 2010 11:45AM Being ignorant and being an idiot are two separate things. Don't call a child an idiot just because they don't know any better. I'd honestly blame Person A in your scenario. Seasoned/older player is more likely not to fall the scam, new/older player might not know about the scams and proceed to give out the information. If Person A doesn't inform Person B about the things to look for, who's really to blame? Especially if Person B only plays maybe once a month or so.
Mar 31st 2010 11:30AM I disagree. I've had a few friends get hacked. Sometimes you do stuff without thinking about it until later. My one friend fell for an email because it looked pretty genuine, she'd been cramming for finals as well as working a full time job, so she was pretty exhausted and wasn't thinking clearly. It's not always about stupity.
