Jun 5th 2010 5:43PM sad to see that "best itemization" is barely winning out over "bunny ears"
Jun 5th 2010 2:32PM no lists yet but i'm about to start writing down the names of severely underperforming/afking/loot whoring pugs so we never take them again. and yes, i know there's an ignore list. and no, it's not big enough. there are too many people out there who just want an upgrade cause it will up their GS and they have absolutely no idea about itemization values or how much they're wasting in stats. like the spriest with 611 hit. yeah. 611. not a typo. maybe blizzard should disable the functionality of the GS mod so people can stop stroking their e-peens to it.
Jun 2nd 2010 7:13PM this is one of those films that you see and are inexplicably touched by it. it's difficult to explain, difficult to put a finger on, but it's there. i think part of it is that the film really captures the essence of a long-time wow player. on one hand, you have the defensive answer that most players have found themselves giving at some point about their gaming hobby, which is that playing a game is as legitimate a release as reading a book, watching tv, going out on the town, etc. on the other hand, the tone and soundtrack of the film echoes the almost plaintive cry of a player who is... well... not trapped, but bound to their character in a sense. your reputation, your ability and the recognition you receive in wow is much more visible, more tangible than it usually is in real life. when paired with the relationships you build and the time you invest, it can make it difficult to just walk away from what is supposed to be a game. in some ways i think that one of the best days of my life will be when blizzard stops releasing content for wow.
May 27th 2010 7:24PM be glad they are giving us another raid before cataclysm when they pretty much implied they wouldn't be releasing more raid content for WotLK once they did ICC?
yes i know, they said "no new tier." but the only new raids we got with this xpac came with new tier, so it seemed like an implied statement... at least to me.
May 27th 2010 7:21PM eagerly awaiting ranked BG's.
i remember the pvp changeover right before TBC. i remember thinking how stupid people were for complaining that, at 2 days, it was taking them too long to grind out the honor for the HWL weps... and i remember thinking all those people were incredibly stupid to complain about something taking a few days that, until recently, could've taken up to about half a year or so to achieve. no sense of appreciation.
May 24th 2010 5:56PM i'm gonna go with "no-fly-zones" for the cities. keep in mind shattrah and dalaran are both neutral cities, hubs of their respective continents. cities like Org and SW are not neutral and allowing flying over them would create a myriad of issues. if flying is enabled over cities, be ready for an excessive amount of flying guards to prevent ppl from attacking from above. also, how would you fly in IF?
May 24th 2010 9:30AM i think that voice chat over a game is pretty much the ideal solution. whether it be vent, TS or even chatting on Xbox live, voice communication provides the perfect balance. you can communicate back and forth effectively without any unnecessary filler. i don't need to see the people i'm talking to in a 10 or 25 man raid, just hear them. voice chats take no extra screen space to use and produce minimal lag.
