Dec 1st 2009 7:20PM I tried to subscribe to this magazine three times, and all three times received errors. When I contacted their customer service they sent me an email saying they would get back to me, and never did. Now I'm glad the transactions didn't do through, honestly. Looks like it would have been a waste of cash.

Jul 4th 2009 7:59PM I prefer the good ol' sparklers you can light in front of your house. Mostly because I'm lazy and don't want to have to drive to the country to see fireworks.

Mar 23rd 2009 4:03PM I agree with you. I was never a fan of tier 3. Of course, I am a mage, and all our tier sets are hideous. But tier 1 recolored could be a huge improvement.
Mar 23rd 2009 4:02PM I definitely prefer the newer system where you don't have to have tier gear for it to match. I looked like a freaking hobo back in BC, but leveling in Northrend I could look at my character without feeling deep shame. In fact, I can't wait to get all of my alts through Outland and into Northrend so they can actually look like the handsome adventurers they are rather than clowns or mismatched freaks. Sure, the gear starts to look the same, but it looks good. If I showed some pictures I took of my mage at level 69 in her quest gear it would be obvious as to why they made this change.
I do agree that a better answer to the problem would be to use different armor models but make the colors uniform or allow us to dye them, but I still feel that this current approach is an improvement, albeit lazy. Hopefully all the time they're not spending making new gear models is going into new druid forms or something extra cool.
Mar 17th 2009 5:38PM While I do believe that Achievements are option, I find it to be really low when Blizzard sets up achievements that take a year of dedication and work to complete like the holiday ones, and then ONE achievement is so difficult that it throws all of that work down the drain for most people and Blizzard's response is, "well they're optional!!!" Yes, but the point of achievements is to be fun, and going through a year of work only to be stopped by one bogus achievement is not fun, it's lame and a waste of our time.
I'm not a hardcore raider, but I'm a pretty hardcore achiever. I try to get all the achievements I can and am closing in on 5000 achievement points. Some are hard, and some are easy. However, in terms of the holiday achievements, I think it's ridiculous to have a year of easy achievements followed by one that stops everyone in their tracks, forcing them to wait ANOTHER year. It's one thing if you can go out and try it again and again, but only having a short window to complete something really difficult or you have to wait an entire year seems to be over the top to me.
I love the achievements system, but in the end I think the rewards should match the work put into it.
