New tax set to raise costs of digital downloads {WoW}

Feb 27th 2009 11:53AM That's what people do on their blogs....post their opinions.

WoW Patch 3.1 PTR Warlock changes {WoW}

Feb 24th 2009 10:26AM Cakey...you're what gives the Lock community a bad name. You are the kind of person who cries because they are no longer able to hit one button for 4 hours a night and top the Recount meters. Who instead of adapting to change and trying new things would rather just throw their hands up and claim Bliz hates us.

I, along with many others, still do amazing damage with my Lock and have a good time doing it. So maybe in your case it's the the Warlock class that is broken, but the Lock itself?

I for one enjoy Zach's optimistic take on the changes and share his enthusiasm. Are they perfect? No, but patch notes ever are?

Maybe you should go roll another class...we have a enough crybabies holding us back already.

Blizzard: We're working on the Comcast problem {WoW}

Dec 22nd 2008 12:29PM Hi,

I am a Comcast employee. Please stop being mean to the company that puts a roof over my head and food in fridge. Just pay your overpriced bill for lackluster performance/mediocre customer service and keep your comments to yourself.

Love,
Kaphik

Death Knight's Death Grip as crowd control {WoW}

Dec 17th 2008 1:43PM Sadly for every 1 DK that knows how to properly use death grip....there are 50 that don't.

Blizzard's version of RMT {WoW}

Dec 12th 2008 4:58PM Wow...you sure do make a lot of assumptions.

First off, I only said it once....ask WI why it got posted twice.

Secondly, how do you know how much I play? Where did you read that I called anyone "no-lifers" or made mention of an "epeen"? If anything your argument goes the complete other direction and acts as though in game items are some sort of status symbol and the players that wear them should be honored because of the amount of time they have available to sit in front of the computer...excuse me while I laugh.

The point is, this is a game. Nothing more, nothing less. People like you need to stop taking it so seriously and act as though raiders need to be put on a pedestal simply because they have opportunities open to them that some do not. Why does it bother you that someone can go and buy gear? How does it impact the way you play the game? What does it matter if someone buys all the best gear and then doesn't play? Is that some sort of sin the raiders bible?

Here is a simply solution. But an asterisk (*) next to any item that a player purchases outside of the game. That way if they are inspected or looked up on the Armory it is obvious that they didn't get the gear through raid runs. That way the casual players can still get the good gear if they see it fit to spend real life money (which I don't a lot will do anyway) and raiders can have the pride of getting them the old fashion way.

Just to put a little cherry on top of your idiot sundae...I raid regularly and don't consider myself "casual" at all.

Video game...look it up.



Blizzard's version of RMT {WoW}

Dec 12th 2008 3:38PM Agreed. There is nothing more valuable than time. I don't really see the big deal with letting people who have the financial means purchase items they may not have the the free time acquire otherwise.

Lets say a person only has an hour to play a day because they are so busy with work/family/obligations, but they happen to make enough to spend extra on their hobby as they see fit. Why should they be shut out of the upper tier stuff simply because their real life schedule does not allow the time to spend hours on end in front of the computer? They enjoy the game for all the same reason "hardcore" people do, why can't they have the same rewards?

Lets say Blizzard offered a full tier set for $200. Seems like a lot on the front end but take a closer look. Lets say it took someone 8 weeks of raiding 3 nights a week, 4 hours a time (pretty modest) to get the same set.

3 nights x 4 hours = 12 hours a week
12 hours a week x 8 weeks = 96 hours
$200/96 hours = $2.08 dollars an hour

Now I don't know about you, but my time is worth more than $2 per hour. That doesn't even include farming time and other activities involved with raiding.

I say if someone can afford the cash, but not the time...let them pay.
