Mar 31st 2010 9:36PM I am a longtime listener to On Point and I was super excited when I saw they did a show on WoW. But like Rhabella, I was disappointed at the show as a whole. One of the things that makes Tom Ashbrook such a great host is that he invests a lot of time in becoming knowledgeable about the show's topic beforehand- often reading the guests' books, etc. I wish he would have played at least a few hours of WoW beforehand so that he would have had at least a basic understanding of what the game was. Also, the main guest (the sociologist, or whatever) seemed really out of touch with the game and its players as a whole. I am so glad you were there, Elizabeth, to inject a little bit of common sense and "real" knowledge into the conversation... I only wish they let you talk a little more! There are so many better "WoW scholars" out there such as Jane McGonigal with much more interesting thoughts on WoW, MMOs, and gaming; it's a shame On Point didn't invite one of them, instead of Bainbridge.
Mar 2nd 2010 10:12PM Why does Primordial Saronite cost 23 Emblems of Frost? It seems like such an arbitrary number? Why not 20 or 25? It makes me wonder if Blizz has got some strange equation to determine how much time/effort it should take to acquire one and that is simply the number that came out.

Jun 20th 2009 12:18AM One thing I've always wondered about Phat Loot Phriday- why do you include the "Getting Rid of It" section? Generally if an item is good enough to make it on this list getting rid of it is your last concern. Who is going through the work to obtain these items and then selling them to a vendor?

May 23rd 2009 1:25AM Here's a question for ya, The Queue-
The site www.wowprogress.com used to do a really great job at tracking detailed guild info such as when a player left/joined, when epic loot was won, and when bosses were downed, but it seems like since 3.1 it has lost a lot of its ability to do so. Is there any other website that tracks guilds' changes and progress with that much detail?
Apr 14th 2009 7:27PM Note that Blizz deleted the comment stating that everything will be playable by 5PM PDT. Now they say they will update us at that time... looking like my previous comment is going to come true.
Apr 14th 2009 7:15PM Part of me wishes all the realms will still be down come 5PM PDT. At least then this day will officially have been a complete and utter embarrassment for Blizz and they'll realize they need to handle these things better.
Apr 14th 2009 4:27PM Jeeze, you would think as long as Blizz has been doing this that they would figure out how to properly drop a patch... guess not.
