Apr 26th 2010 4:22PM True... I too am a hulu watcher. That's a big issue, many of the "geeks" that shows like this appeal to, do watch on the 'net instead of TV. Same for Chuck, Caprica, SGU... be nice when the people that make this stuff catch up to the new paradigm.
Oct 10th 2009 1:02PM I'd like to see instances that require cooperation cross-faction. An instance that temporarily allows you to communicate, and requires that half the members be from Horde, the other half Alliance to defeat a common enemy. Arthas would have been a good choice, so might Deathwing. Queue your group like for a BG from each side, perhaps two NPCs like Thrall and Jaina as the moderators, quest givers. Design it so the group makeup has to be a standard PvE makeup, say an entry boss for each side to defeat to enter the cooperative section. After the last boss in the cooperative instance flag everyone for PvP, but leave communication possible... spoils can either be divided or fought over.
Oct 9th 2009 2:21PM Heh. Wish I could say it's just an issue with alts. First thing I do after the jousting phase in ToC, off my horse and ready to take on the faction champs on the ground is hit "4" in an attempt to refresh my imaginary jousting shield. Good thing it's not bound to anything Leeroy Jenkinsy on any of my toons...
Oct 8th 2009 2:39PM Anyone else ever notice that these names are very similar to the Biblical story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and the fiery furnace in the Book of Daniel?
Therefore, the Tribunal hands down. C'mon. Divine intervention FTW.
Sep 27th 2009 1:02AM How can you possibly infer from my post that I don't like the game? I'm very happy with it. It just doesn't matter to me if GC posts or not, as I think it's a silly way to try and get information out, and in the end, not very responsive.
Sep 27th 2009 12:55AM Actually, I'm very happy with the game, and have no problem with how they design or the changes they make. I rarely visit the forums, and when I do it's to learn from other users, not to QQ or find out what the blues have posted. As I said, I think it's a very poor way to disseminate information. If they want to educate the user base, be responsive to their clients, then there are better ways to do it.
I'm pleased that GC will continue to READ the forums, that's all he (or someone... A good CM with an in to the Devs is good enough for me) needs to do. Responsiveness doesn't mean playing with the clients, it means finding out what their concerns are and attempting to address them. Openness and clarity goes a long way to making people feel that this is done.
And yes, I do think subscribing implies that a company tries to address the needs of the client base. I find my ISP to be very responsive and helpful when I have an issue. They keep me well informed of any planned outages or upgrades and the reason for them beforehand. When one writes a letter to a magazine or newspaper pointing out an error, one doesn't need a reply, a correction to the error is all that's required.
Perhaps my letter was a bit "snarky"... so guess I'll go off somewhere to lick my wounds... too.... lol
Sep 16th 2009 4:18PM One please. Regular. My children might respect me if I have uber headphones. Even if not, I want. Thank you.
Sep 14th 2009 1:24PM I love(d) the whole warlock dreadsteed questline, culminating in the awesome battle in Dire Maul, spent running around trying to keep plates spinning on top of poles (something along those lines, at least). Negotiating with the uber-scary Lord Banehollow for some stardust... Good times. I feel sorry for new 'locks that they don't need to do this chain anymore. Pity.
Sep 14th 2009 1:15PM Welcome Dominic... Wall of text, but guess that couldn't be helped, given the long hiatus. Good luck in your new role. Everything I know about QQ I learned in the 'lock forums... reading mage posts.
