Bolfang and the future of the Horde and the Alliance {WoW}

May 23rd 2009 7:54PM But if I remember correctly, he only wanted his 'comrade' sewn back together as a means to an end. He said something along the lines of, do this and the Argent Crusade will not tarry any longer. I may be wrong, but I remember something along the lines of this.

Breakfast Topic: How is vehicle combat treating you? {WoW}

May 18th 2009 8:13AM I don't know if many people know this, but the targeting system is REALLY easy after the first time you discover it. This is especially if you use keybindings and you mouse turn while playing your character.

All you do to move your targeting reticule around is use the right mouse button. If you're driving the vehicle, you can still use WASD, using (again), the mouse to turn. I don't feel it's clunky at all, and in fact, quite the opposite.

If you haven't been using the RMB, I'd suggest you get some practice with it at the argent tournament dailies.

The rise and fall of class popularity {WoW}

May 13th 2009 11:17AM For a small amount of time, from 3.0 till 3.1, rogues stopped topping the meters and stopped getting invited to raids. The few numbers you see up there are probably the ones who weathered the storm... It wasn't all that bad really, it was just perceived to be that terrible.

Now we've been fixed, and I'm glad I stuck to my guns with keeping my rogue as my main =)

Updated World of Warcraft Patch 3.1.2 PTR Patch Notes {WoW}

May 12th 2009 8:45AM Am I the only one that cares about Scopes now binding the gun that they're used on?! =(

Or has everyone dropped Engineering but me?

Lichborne: Leveling through Outland (Levels 58-68) {WoW}

May 11th 2009 9:25AM I haven't levelled my DK yet (and I don't think I plan to for some time), but I did level my pally, and went straight from Hellfire, to Nagrand (with a few dungeons along the way), and was 68 in no time.

I made it a point to go to Nagrand because I never did on my rogue, and missed out on a sizeable chunk of reputation that I wanted later anyway.

Theming the login page {WoW}

May 8th 2009 6:03PM I miss the music from the BC login screen... The one where it used to rise to a crescendo of sorts if you didn't login immediately and waited a bit...

Whenever I hear that in some random video, it just makes me wish I had a way to put that back. I sure as hell don't like that wing flap, landing and roar.

PopCap's addons are obfuscated, Blizzard is OK with that {WoW}

May 4th 2009 7:50PM Andrew: I suppose MD5s would require a lot more manpower to verify and release (and we know we'd rather have this manpower elsewhere), especially since there's a new addon release for every patch that Blizzard does, and sometimes patches to improve code anyway.

Obviously my argument holds no water with a company/mini game like this (And I'm not really that suspicious of everything). It's just that if anyone else wanted to do this (and this could be anybody really), they could make an intellectual property argument and get their code 'okayed' by Blizzard. That's the problem with making exceptions, in my opinion.

And that'd be going against the Addon policy anyway wouldn't it? Again, I'm only arguing against the solution.

May 4th 2009 7:36PM Quite possibly! And if Blizzard is willing to give them the benefit of the doubt, then I have no problem with it.

I'm just saying that making an exception is... inconsistent. That being said, I guess I can't really think up a better solution.
