Oct 1st 2011 6:34PM The issue isn't that it's an openly "progressive" (/Inigo Montoya mode on - I do not think that word means what you think it means - /Inigo Montoya mode off) guild. The issue is that the article is entirely too full of political jabs at one side by the other side.
Unless WoW insider wants to morph into a political site, they need to keep political stuff to a minimum, unless they really don't mind pissing off the majority of their audience. The upcoming political season here in the US is going to be obnoxious enough without it following us into our gaming.
Nov 1st 2009 9:08PM A little griefing is good for the game????? Only if you're the one doing the griefing and you're immature enough to need that sort of validation of your epeen.
PvP is fine, when both sides have a reasonable chance. This event unfortunately seems to have encouraged the opposite, empowering the jerks of WoW and forcing the rest of us to let them have their fun at our expense.
Given how abruptly things ended, it appears that there might actually be an adult somewhere in Blizzard's management chain. Now if we could just get that person to look into some of the more ridiculous class imbalance issues.....
Apr 14th 2009 1:31PM The easy way, oh clueless one, would be if the crew at Curse and Wowinterface tried to partner with Wowmatrix as their download client. Instead they've tried multiple times to roll their own, and failed pretty miserably at it, while spewing out FUD and threats faster than even MS ever managed to.
One good thing came out of this. I finally got motivated and enabled adblock so now there won't be any ad revenue generated from me. I wonder when they'll try and block people with adblock from their sites. They'll have to try if the reason for them doing this is the real reason.
Apr 14th 2009 1:13PM There is zero help here for addon developers. If you use Wowmatrix, it would show you a link to the addon's page where you could donate if you so choose. The new curse client does the same thing. Net effect zero. The Wowinterface client is so borked that I couldn't get it to work at all, so that crew is pretty worthless.
This is about control and future revenue for the 2 aggregator sites. Any bets on when it'll become a requirement to fork over $$$ to them for the use of their client? I'd make it a very very longshot bet that any of those $$$ would ever trickle down to addon developers.
