Breakfast Topic: Will Raid Finder popularity be sustainable? {WoW}

Dec 6th 2011 9:33AM That is my only issue with tank queues: it's hard to get a fresh run. It took me 5 days of trying to finally see the first boss on my blood dk... I'm ok with the long queues and I understand why they are there, that's fine, but I hate waiting 30 minutes to then be told "oh, 3/8 bosses dead".

Breakfast Topic: Will Raid Finder popularity be sustainable? {WoW}

Dec 6th 2011 8:06AM Queueing on Monday evening was a little bit like what you're predicting, since most people had already done it and only late-comers or people who freshly hit the ilvl requirement were in. Queues that were two or three times as long as they had been all week, dps that didn't top 20k on any fight... meh. I don't know if you're correct but I'm worried...

Tips for great success in the Raid Finder {WoW}

Dec 1st 2011 10:38AM Yeah, I meant for the LFR specifically. I've been running pretty much addon-less (except omen and recount to gauge my performance) and I've not seen any ability that "surprised' me or that I could have benefited from knowing earlier that it was coming. Bosses pull you in to signal an ability is coming, the whole landscape changes colors to signal other abilities, or default blizzard raid warnings indicate what adds have come out and which to kill first.

I was very pessimistic about LFR before I tried it out, and now all that's left of my pessimism is the wait for the masses to gear up enough to start hitting it up.

Drama Mamas: Love and marriage and WoW {WoW}

Nov 28th 2011 3:10PM It would definitely be interesting to hear about this episode from the husband's perspective.

Drama Mamas: Love and marriage and WoW {WoW}

Nov 28th 2011 2:33PM @Shotie (i fail at comments and this is a duplicate)

Yeah, I can see it from that point of view and I'm desperately trying to see it from "his" point of view (not that it's easy or sensible, but just for fun because I'm on the interwebs). If he thought they were just playing together for fun - leveling to 85 in 6 months isn't really a hardcore style of play - and suddenly it turned out that his wife is applying to his guild, trying to get him to raid with her on alts, I'm guessing there is a possibility that he feels overwhelmed with this and feels that she's trying to take "his" hobby away from him and make it theirs.

In no way do I think it justifies him, I'm just trying to see if there's a way to explain this in a bit better manner than "he needs help" or whatever the easy conclusion could be.
