Mar 29th 2006 3:38PM Uh...okay? Doesn't make a whole lot of sense but it's a nice gesture I suppose. I feel REALLY bad for Blizzard sometimes. They have an obligation to provide a game and a certain level of service because everyone is paying them $15 a month to deliver that. Unfortunately, a lot of people feel like that gives them the right to piss and moan and complain all the time. And I guess that's the real kicker here. Does the fact that you're paying for a service give you the right to complain and complain and complain some more? It's an odd dilemma because it puts Blizzard in the awkward position of having to just suck it up. They're not really in the business of just banning people for constant bickering, so what's a company to do. I don't have any solid answers. I'm just trying to start a discussion on the topic. Anyway, nuff said. Talk amongst yourselves.
Mar 26th 2006 12:24AM I use BibMod and I just started playing around with TitanPanel and I like what I see. I just like being able to tweak the interface, move things around, resize things, etc. Having coordinates is definitely a plus in my book. I can't believe WoW doesn't make this a standard feature in the game. It's crucial to being able to move around in a world as diverse as Azeroth.
Mar 18th 2006 11:16AM That was pretty impressive. Good use of a song and game visuals. Two thumbs up! I love how they worked in the area around the Gnomish airport, too.
Mar 15th 2006 8:27PM If anyone can make a great MMORPG, I believe it's Turbine. They may never have the same numbers WoW has but I have my doubts as to whether any game will be able to recreate Blizzard's success. That's not the point though. I think Turbine knows what they're doing and as long as they have enough people to support the game, more power to them. Personally, I'm waiting for Middle-Earth Online. That may just pull me away from WoW. We'll wait and see though. Right now I have no intentions of playing D&D Online. My friend's review pretty much put summed up why I won't be in the game: http://joeferg.blogspot.com/2006/03/dungeons-dragons-online-review.html
No crafting...no soloing...No thanks!
Mar 15th 2006 11:56AM That's a pretty good guess with the trolls. What we have to realize is that the new race can't change the fundamentals of how the game is played or how it functions. It will have to be a bipedal humanoid so the Naga, the Centaurs, and the Dryads are out. I don't see Blizzard redoing all of the equipment just to fit a race with less than or more than two feet. Murlocs could work although I don't know how helms would work with them. If it were Goblins, I imagine they would have to redo the way Gadgetzan, Booty Bay, and Ratchet function. They would no longer be neutral areas, right?
Mar 15th 2006 11:46AM Well said Anthony. People piss and moan about farmers but yet there are people out there who are willing to partake of their services. Cigarettes are a great analogy. Those Truth ads love to beat up on Big Tobacco but it doesn't change the fact that there are still people out there wanting the goods.
After watching that, I feel nothing but sympathy for those people. In my opinion, that's a horrible way to live. I've seen nicer meth labs than that first gaming workshop. Even that God-awful house in Fight club beats what those guys are dealing with. I can't help but feel depressed about the whole thing. I wonder if we can adopt one of them for the price of a cup of coffee.
Mar 15th 2006 11:18AM I've never raided another faction's city so I wouldn't know...Ok that's not entirely true. I did manage to solo my way through Thunder Bluff long enough to get a coin of ancestry. I only had to die like 7 times too.
Anyway, I didn't realize that civilians would start fighting. I assumed they were passive and wouldn't attack unless provoked. That's the way it should be. So even if you're fighting guards, they should just cower and whimper for mercy. They're civilians...that's what civilians do. The baker shouldn't pick up a loaf of bread and go after you.
Mar 13th 2006 10:21AM As long as I can still solo my way through everything, then I'm cool. Although I am concerned about this:
"A hunter's attacker no longer looses target when the hunter feigns death"
What does that mean exactly? The forum is down right now.
