Jul 4th 2009 2:17PM I have no idea what they're called but we called them "palm trees" because they launch with a streak of light, go dark for a second, then burst into what looks like the leaves of a palm tree. I also like the ones that scream on the way up :-)
Jun 9th 2009 3:34PM They're in-game already. If you go to the Game Fuel site, you will see a button to claim yours, but you will need a Battle.net account.
Jun 2nd 2009 1:59PM Ditto.
So, I've been participating in the Mountain Dew promotion, but haven't attached my WoW account to a Battle.net one - do I have to now, if I want my pet? I almost remember reading that eventually we'll all be forced over to that system, is that true?

Yes, I agree, but my question is, when does a newb become a noob? And how can anyone tell that the person asking a dumb question on a lvl 8 is truly on their first character, or just someone on a alt who doesn't bother to Google things once-in-a-while?
There's too much grey area; who's the newb, the person with the 1-yr old character but only 9 days of play time, or the person who has burned through 70 levels within a month of buying the game? And does the person, with two other lvl 80 characters, starting a new class or profession qualify as a newb (for beginning something they are unfamiliar with) or a noob (as they should know by now where to find that information on the internet)?
Most people automatically assume a player is a noob, and offer rude, sometimes even cruel, responses to what may potentially be an innocent question (one of the points of this article), showing that while this distinction between newbs and noobs may exist, other players choose not to or cannot acknowledge it. However, it is virtually impossible to tell the difference between the two in-game, creating a situation where each person must base their conclusion of newb or noob on their own standards. Standards that are subjective and based on that person's own game experience.
So while we may like to believe these differences between newb and noob exist, in-game these classifications are useless, because how someone is treated is entirely dependent on the experiences and personalities of the people responding to their questions, and not on the newb/noob's actual situation.
May 27th 2009 11:51PM But what's the cut-off between a Noob and Newb? Is it Level? Played time? Or time since starting the game?
May 26th 2009 11:38AM I like the human dance, if only because it reminds me of the "Make Love, Not Warcraft" episode of South Park, and how the baddie does the pelvic thrust move right before he kills Kenny!
May 20th 2009 8:56PM The seal face looks like someone cut the head off of a Beanie Baby to make that... :-(
