Mar 24th 2010 1:30AM I disagree. I just recently started gearing up my DK, and just last week was looking for an article just like this.

Jan 9th 2010 5:43PM I was hacked 2 days ago, had my characters deleted, and an authenticator added to my account so I couldn't even regain control. I used the webform to contact account admin. Yesterday I was notified my account was banned permanently for gold selling, but I figured that was automatic and just patentially waited to see what would happen. I logged on this morning to find my account completely restored, with my characters back, and all the stuff the hackers took from me in my mailbox waiting for me. I didn't have to do anything past sending that initial email.
Needless to say, I've got an authenticator coming in the mail. But, I'm happy with the way Blizzard handled it, other than the 2 days I couldn't play, I didn't lose anything, and it was very low hassle. I never got any offers for a care package, they just fixed the problem painlessly for me.
Sep 4th 2009 5:28AM Wow, that's quite the manifesto there on "real" WoW players vs. the wannabes.
First you tell us how much people will miss out on by changing factions, and then go on to say it is unfair because they're missing out on it... unfair to whom, exactly? If they are missing out, that implies that they have less than those who didn't miss out. By your logic, we can conclude that they’re paying to be unfair to themselves. And that bothers you, why, exactly?
"Just because you are all sheep, doesnt mean you have to be ignorant with me."
Oh, I'm sure plenty of the “sheep” don't want to be ignorant with you. You seem to be doing a fine job of that all on your own.
Question for you: What about people who have leveled both sides, smelling the roses along the way, and just want to change sides to play with a friend or family member? Shall I start yet another alt, and do the same content for the 10th time?
That doesn’t fit into your condescending generalization, but by all means, don't let that stop you from ranting about something that impacts your enjoyment playing the game not in the slightest bit. Preach on, brother, from up high on your mountain, where only the l33t few, like you, of course, belong.
By the way, it's "anyone" not "any1". If you're going to be a condescending *$&, criticizing other people's choices, you might as well make sure your own house is in order first.
Feb 5th 2009 3:31PM How much intelligence does it take to go to a website, enter your credit card number, download the bot and use it?
If people were required to write their own software, then maybe you could make an argument that the game would be AI vs AI, but downloading someone elses work doesn't really make you intelligent.
Jan 8th 2009 2:57AM The new guys on the team have to be given something to do that they can't really mess up with to learn..
This is it!
Dec 6th 2008 2:55AM Unconstitutional? The next "prez"? Hmm, let's go look at some history...
"Passed on October 12, 1998 by a unanimous vote in the U.S. Senate and signed into law by President Bill Clinton on October 28, 1998, the DMCA..."
So, it was signed by the last Democratic President. It was also passed by a unanimous vote in the Senate. Then we have:
"A federal judge ruled on Wednesday that the copyright infringement case against the Russian software company Elcomsoft can go on, dismissing the defense's claim that key provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act are unconstitutional."
So, there is judicial precedent that key provisions of the law are constitutional.
Last time I checked, congress has partial power to modify the constitution (amendment process), while the courts have the power to interpret it.
So, based on all of that, I'd say that it's unreasonable to expect that Obama will somehow declare the DMCA unconstitutional (not that he could anyhow, but you brought it up as if it matters...)
It's really sad how limited some people's knowledge is of how their government works.
