Dec 13th 2009 11:52AM Recount being messed up depends on which version you are running and your settings. This has been extensively documented via the o boards.
The problem exists with ranged vs. melee. Melee dps wont' show up on ranged and vice versa. If you have the proper settings or the latest beta, your recount works fine.
Dec 13th 2009 11:47AM Only scrubs think occ is bad. It's not hard in any way.
The hardest part about OCC is getting 4 other people that aren't total scrubs that drop group because they lack the comprehension to operate a drake that has a total 3 buttons. But this difficulty applies to instances, except they have to figure out how to use more than buttons. Then again maybe they just hit one button the whole.
Man up people, it's a quick and painless if you aren't a loser.
OCC != Hard
Dec 13th 2009 11:38AM How in the world of warcraft could you tell people that they're supposed to need on frozen orbs?
Seriously WTF WOW Insider!?! Why encourage people to do what's wrong? Just because everyone's jumping off a bridge doesn't mean you should too - so why did you tell people exactly that?
Dec 13th 2009 3:53AM They created the cracks in the game when TBC was released, and they stressed those cracks with the patches throughout TBC (i'm looking at you 2.4), and they might as well have dismantled the game altogether with 3.0. Today we're left with a broken memory of what was, what could have been, and what will never be. At the same time they've made huge improvements to the game (I'm looking at you the new lfg - best thing to happen in wow since the battlegrounds).
Wow is awesome, blizzard is awesome, but this game has been going in the wrong direction for a long time. It's not blizzard's fault, it's not GC's fault; it's the way of the world. Blizzard is a corporation in a capitalist economy, their duty is to create profit, not make serious gamers happy.
Blizzard's goal is not to make an extremely awesome MMO (but it was the goal with the original wow), but instead blizzard's goal is to make as much money as possible. That is the point of all corporations.
Blizzard exists to make money. They do not exist to please serious gamers, they exist to please the masses. Don't hate on blizzard for what has happened to game you have known for years now, hate on society, or capitalism, your parents, your boss or whatever. It's not blizzard's fault, it's just the way of the world.
Don't worry too much about it, you will either keep playing, stop playing or find something else to play. Either way it will be okay.
Peace out everyone.
Dec 12th 2009 6:05AM someone has actually been in the same guild since 1.5?
Dec 10th 2009 12:53PM I don't get what's wrong with the trade channel. Trade has basically been the same thing for 4 years now? Trade has never ever been strictly a trade channel. Maybe I'm old school and you're new school? I don't know.
So what do you expect to have happen in trade channel? If you made it strictly trade, no one will pay attention. I might be sitting in trade lf a ony pug, and you say you need enchants - while in it's current system I can help you get your enchants.
If you put moderators on it and got rid of everything else, me and many other people will ignore the channel - I don't care about wtb/wts and most people don't. So by making trade strictly trade you'd be making trade channel worse than it is. You said this exact thing.
If you think trade being empty is better than it is now I can make it happen for you! Next time you login type "/leave 2". Trade channel will cease to exist for you.
Why does everyone care so much that there's non trade activity happening on the trade channel? It's the most global channel there is, so someone that wants to reach a largest audience to find a tank or healer it would only make sense to use trade. You have total control of your chat windows. You can leave trade, or make it own window. I have general(everything except trade)/trade/group/guild/private.
Maybe I'm alone here, but complaining about how people talk on global channels in world of warcraft is kind of silly. You are playing wow - if you want something more serious maybe you should go play eve or spend your off time working.
The only reason I would use the lfg channel would be if i wanted to farm a regular instance.
Please read the patch notes at least the part about the new lfg or lfr. I've had people who thought if they clicked DE (on the roll) the enchanter got the mats. I had another person convinced that DE beat out greed rolls. Quite a few people convinced that if they run something using random it doesn't save them to that instance.
Dec 10th 2009 11:40AM I think this channel would implode on itself should it actually exist somehow, and then it would turn into a black hole and take all the world of warcraft with.

Blindlinus, "if theyare going to try to force us to suffer through playing with idiots via this debuff..." -- So Blizzard is forcing you to use this new lfg system how? I mean if you and your 6k gs buddies are so awesome at this game, why in the world would you if need to use the random dungeon finder?
So blindlinus, you are either seriously confused about how this system works or everyone on your server hates you as much I do and no one will pug with you.
So which is it? You either don't know how to form a pug on your own, or everyone hates you?
You can still form pugs the old fashion way, this way you and your friends can kick anyone out of heroic uk that has less than 5k gs. No one is forcing you to use the new lfg. Your welcome for the heads up on this tasty bit of info.
Gareth: someone really thought 29khp wasn't enough to tank ok? 29k hp is enough to tank all of naxx25.
And I hate gearscore. I hate it. Worst addon ever made.
