Aug 1st 2009 2:01PM lol that's a very cute story.
Aug 1st 2009 1:57PM As I grew with age my use of the term 'gay' lessened to the point where I rarely use it anymore, but I know that when I was using it, I wasn't saying it to decry gays or be derogatory to them in any way.
The person you were speaking to wasn't necessarily a child, his witty (and funny) response could have alerted you to that, haha. I don't know what my point is here, but I get the sense that you may be older and not understand the useage of 'gay' as a synonym for 'bad' or 'annoying', and not 'homosexual', and for most kids those two meanings have ZERO relationship.
May 7th 2009 4:12PM I'm a big fan of the mounted combat, and got the Valiant achievement, but after doing that and realizing I had to continue doing dailies, (some of them the same even) for days on end for crap rewards, I gave up because it simply stopped being fun. The Black Knight stuff was cool until they made the big reveal, and then it was boring - as inane as that sentence was worded, it sums up my feelings about the Tourney in general. Once I figured out what the rewards were - mounts, pets, and crappy weapons - nothing to replace my Titansteel Destroyer? Anyone could farm the mats/money for one of those in a quarter of the time or less it takes for you to get the crappy, if not beautiful 2h sword.
Quel'danas kicked this thing's butt, for a number of reasons, but if only seriously for the fact that the you felt like you were contributing to an on-going effort. Being labelled a 'champion' of your faction shouldn't occur until you are in the actual stadium, which IMO is the only thing the tourney has going for it in any real sense. It feels half-assed and everyone knows it, most especially Blizz. It'd be like if the AFC/NFC playoffs took place at your local HS football field.
That aside, Ulduar is too tough for my guild, mainly bc its not willing to put the time in necessary. I honestly don't care though, and the OP was totally right about why I don't care - it's because the World of Warcraft doesn't seem to care.
I've come to a broader realization however, and that is - wtf are we going to kill after the Lich King? Sargeras and the remaining two Old Gods? Meh.
