Read the article.
Jul 5th 2009 7:01PM I like the idea of new 'starting' areas. Maybe allow the option. Start at 1 or start at 65. If you have an 80. With the next expansion the amount of levels one has to slog through as an alt will be all the more incredible.
Jun 10th 2009 9:23PM I'm so shocked. I always wished they'd move things down lower, especially flying, but I never dreamt they'd really do it. And FIVE GOLD total for a 60% riding/mount?!!
Jun 2nd 2009 11:34PM Awesome article, well stated and well thought out, and your last paragraph is killer. XD Please Blizz give us a glyph to be a killer whale or penguin or anything!
Jun 2nd 2009 2:25PM Definitely agree.
To those annoyed at the request for more less male forms, just make it a mountain lion, or any other cat where it is not distinctly male to have a mane. I do not play feral on my tauren druid specifically because of the male look. You can be ass kicking feral cat without being specifically male.
However, definitely a big improvement on the old model. Still will be a lazerturkey, however.
May 3rd 2009 11:32PM I believe Blizzard took the appropriate actions. If Karatechop and everyone else in the guild (that went on the runs) truly thought it was a 'thank you' or 'I'm sorry' item sent to the hacked account from Blizzard on purpose, then they wouldn't have any issues opening a GM ticket, telling them they have the item, and waiting for the 'oh yes we meant to send that' reply.
No, instead they took it out for a spin, and not just on small stuff. They knew what they were doing. They knew it was wrong.
Say your friend gives you a set of keys, thinking it's your set, but as you walk outside you see it's for their new Porsche. Do you think 'Hey they must want me to take it for a spin!' No. You KNOW they didn't mean to give you those keys. And that's where your own personal ethics come in. Do you take the car out anyway and play dumb when you return? Or do you go back inside and switch back the keys?
I'm frightened by the number of people who would take the car out for a spin.
