Feb 28th 2010 11:13PM The 'time until healed' thing is pretty smart, but the rest of the post... well it's good, but I find it hard to think that people don't know about their resist auras. Maybe not exactly when to use which, but still.
Worst thing ever was when my guild was trying Mimiron for the first time, and we wiped 3 times at 3%, 5%, and 0% (OMG SO LAME). Wasn't really a healing thing but you're always left wondering if you could have done something to prevent it.
Jan 25th 2010 7:13PM I never actually thought about it until you mentioned it, but yeah ret paladins are really the only exception to that rule. I mean I've gone oom before as ret but never like actually, straight-up 0.
Not enough to cast a consecration or HL maybe, but even that only happened when I wasn't paying attention or was the healer gnat (sometimes, when my 5v5 team goes up against big health opponents, I'll just go force the other team's healer to make a mistake. don't know if that's a typical strategy but it helps us win).
Something to chew on, definitely.
Dec 9th 2009 5:10PM Completely agree. It's also this idea that "Alliance will fail, always."
The amount of people who go to WG as Alliance and complain "Way to go Alliance!" if we lose is ridiculous. Uh, hey buddy... you ARE Alliance. Shut up, stop assuming you're going to lose, and give a legitimate effort.
On top of that there is one lore figure that messes proper faction pride up: Thrall. No one can hate him. Plus, the Horde had him from the start, and Alliance JUST got Wrynn. Who people hate, for some reason.
Frankly, I'll yell "Glory to the Alliance!" till I'm blue in the face (heh). Don't like the Horde. The end. I have my reasons.
Dec 1st 2009 6:18PM Exactly. When a guy is sexist it's sexist, but when a girl is sexist it's "oh, girl power!" or whatever.
I'm in a very similar situation as Gridpoet; my GM is a mother, who plays with her husband, and is fairly raunchy. That being said, guildies are expected to be respectful and responsible in vent and guild chat. "Rape" is a big dirty word, discrimination of any kind is not tolerated. If someone isn't okay with a comment, it's brought up, apologized for and we all try to not let it happen again.
I know that dudes can be pretty crude sometimes, but saying they're the cause of all your problems is, well... sexist. I'm sure they're good people, but they're exhibiting the same kind of discriminatory attitude they said they started the guild for.
Food for thought, I guess.
Jan 6th 2009 7:25PM Yes, WoW isn't going to be "killed" this year. Frankly, WoW probably will never BE killed, when EverQuest 2 still has something of a following. There are a few on the horizon, however, that may very well make Blizz sweat a little.
Most notable is Champions Online. Not only does it have a sizable fan base from the pen and paper game (much like WoW's following from the RTS games), but it's also in the hands of a capable developer in Cryptic that has experience from City of Heroes/Villains. On top of that, being on the Xbox 360 would give them a much larger install base immediately- like how WoW gives Mac users (like myself) a viable game choice. If Microsoft cuts a deal so Xbox Live subscribers don't have to pay an extra fee to play, then the buzz would probably lead most (if not all) 360 owners to at least give it a try.
If it turns out to be good- which I think it will be- then WoW may very well have a problem.
