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

May 4th 2009 5:31PM Sure you trust them, but it's not good business practice is it?

How do we know their client code isn't a modified version of their source code if we can't read the source code from the clients?

May 2nd 2009 5:59PM PvP'ers != Gankers

I'm in a raiding guild, and I absolutely love PvE (It's mostly the social aspect of it first -vent etc.-), but PvP has it's rewards too... Working together as a team to win battlegrounds and a sense of accomplishment from when you say an extremely well played out BG. And what's more... You expect to kill or be killed, so it's nothing like ganking whatsoever.

This achievement encouraged BG participation, and I've never seen so many players in AB before, but it's not exactly encouraging them to do the right thing. I'll get the achievement done eventually, but it still won't be a very well thought out achievement.

A closer look at the School of Hard Knocks {WoW}

May 1st 2009 8:00PM I think Blizzard's had enough of removing 'hard' stuff from metas, so I doubt that's actually going to happen this time. The only people who are QQing about it are the people who haven't tried it yet.

I haven't finished this achievement yet, but I'm hoping perseverance will get me there eventually. And if it doesn't, well, I'll just pretend the drake was ugly and 30% wasn't much anyway :P

Since most people are split between 'It's easy' and 'It should be removed', it's not likely that they'll be removing this... They've removed too much already, and this is actually doable (You do have to be a jerk though)

An opportunity to change Retribution {WoW}

Apr 28th 2009 8:00PM I raid on my mutilate rogue, and I'll agree it was a little hard to get my dps going when I began playing, but pretty soon everything becomes routine. Nothing is too hard if it's part of your 'rotation' eventually is it? I can pretty much play with my eyes closed and fingers on WASD and my keybinds.

There are prerequisites (bleeds needed) for certain buffs (Hunger for Blood), but that's about the extent of it. I think the difficult bit while raiding with a melee class is actually movement, positioning (read not standing in green/blue/yellow/red crap) and sometimes judgement.

That being said, I'm not going to pretend I know (insert melee class here)'s rotation (But if it's a rotation, it's routine, and eventually, easy... right?)

Apr 28th 2009 10:18AM Sort of like the Undead 'forgot' Common :(

I've heard they used to be able to speak it though.

Still, I think not being able to converse has its advantages. Like when I get ganked, I don't want the PC going 'LULZ L2P TARD' or whatever they say these days (and I've heard that stuff in trade chat, and not in a sarcastic way either).

There's always a sense of... danger.. when you can't converse.

Apr 28th 2009 10:05AM I'd rather not have this. I certainly don't want Dalaran/Orgrimmar/Your favorite city to become ghost towns because everybody is sitting at 'home'. Look at what happened to Shatt when Dalaran became available.

If they do implement it, I hope it costs like 20k or something.

Apr 28th 2009 9:59AM It doesn't actually port you to the next flight path, but dismounts you off the taxi there.

For example, if I were taking a bat from Undercity to Hillsbrad (Tarren Mill), before reaching the Sepulcher flightpath in the middle, I can simply logout, and log back in. I log in on the bat, but instead of continuing my journey, it'll simply dismount me at The Sepulcher.

This is useful if you're going from, say Feralas to Tanaris (across the continent), and want to get off in the middle for whatever reason.
