Breakfast Topic: Are players becoming too entitled? {WoW}

Nov 17th 2011 2:07PM Hi,

Some of the things I always complain about have much to do with wanting to save time. Cataclysm slowed up the game for all but the newest areas of the game. New flightpaths meant that journeys take longer and the removal of portals meant using slower methods of transport to other continents.

At the moment I am levelling a dk tank. When I am in Org it can take 10-15 mins simply to get to where I am questing in Northrend. I don't think that's really acceptable as time is very precious to me.

I work in London. It takes 90 minutes to get to work via the bus and tube. I am paid for 8 hours but I am often expected to do more. It then takes 90 minutes to get home. Once I have made food and done chores I have very little time left in my day. I am sure that there are many working people in a similar position and I am not complaining, there are many in the UK without a job, but it puts a real strain on my leisure time.

So when it can take such a long-time to wait for dungeons, travel to places like Northrend and Outland, it can have a real impact on my playing time and experience. In the daily 2 hours I have available for wow only half of that is used in productive play. I often wait until the weekend if I have quests to complete in dungeons because of the time it takes for them to form, even when I am tanking.

I question whether that is really the type of experience Blizzard wants for its players.

Guild Realm Transfer, Faction Change and other services now available {WoW}

Oct 26th 2011 7:22AM Having been a GM and having moved to a new realm with my guild, I like this option overall as it will save a lot of time messing about.

However, I do have one reservation. A good GM already does an awful lot for the game and I am worried that this service could add extra pressure on them if the guild decided, for whatever reason, to move realm, as it would require them to not only give of their time but pay for the transfer themselves, rather than sharing the cost among members.

I think for some GM's this would be a problem that may force them to either pass over responsibilities to someone who could afford to pay or to pay when they could not really afford it.

Saying that, having a service that gives more flexibility, is overall a good thing.

WoW Insider's BlizzCon 2011 coverage schedule: Day two {WoW}

Oct 22nd 2011 1:04PM One question I want answered at Blizzcon is whether they plan to update Outland and Northrend.

The weakness of questing there is quite considerable when compared to the 1-60 revised content in cataclysm.

The Queue: I have a WoW question for you, readers {WoW}

Jul 28th 2011 8:39PM Australian guilds:

But from that I could only see one site currently working

Sorry I couldn't be more help.

Know Your Lore: Update on current Horde politics {WoW}

Apr 17th 2011 6:53PM Maybe all these changes opens up the possibility for a third faction to emerge. That would be fun

Breakfast Topic: Where in Azeroth would you make your imaginary home? {WoW}

Mar 29th 2011 10:35AM There are two places for me, Nagrand is my favourite zone bar none, somewhere on the floating islands are where my cottage would be. But I also like hanging out just before the entrance to Magister's Terrace, looking out on the sea.

Breakfast Topic: How hard are you working on guild achievements? {WoW}

Mar 10th 2011 10:08AM For the guild i am in some of the guild achievements are simply unrealistic (e.g certain professions achs) and we are very unlikely to achieve them anytime soon, if at all. Therefore, the only ones we are actually trying to get are related to making raiding a bit easier, so achievements that offer food and cauldron recipes are our main targets. The rest are nice to get but completely superfluous (and that is coming from a player who loves achievements).

To my mind, although when i first heard about guild achievements i was excited, the reality of them has left me a bit disappointed. I wish some of the achievements could be scaled dependent on the size of the guild, meaning the difficulty is the same for every player, but I guess that is somewhat hard for Blizz developers and would give the forums a lot to talk/flame/rant/discuss about. I suppose that method could also be open to abuse from unscrupulous guild masters.

Overall, I like the idea of achievements for guilds but like many school reports state, 'they could do better'.

The trouble with tabards {WoW}

Jan 27th 2011 7:00AM In my opinion tabards ought to be treated in the same way as companions or mounts and given their own tab. People can then choose which they want to wear at any given time. There is no reason why we should have to store them in any type of bag.

Ask Creative Development Round II {WoW}

Jan 26th 2011 12:35PM Seems a bit long-winded simply to make a few suggestions.

Ask Creative Development Round II {WoW}

Jan 25th 2011 10:21PM Is there an equivalent thread for non-american users of WoW to leave questions?
