These are some of the most beautifully written and well crafted articles I have ever read on this site. They have fantastic scope, give a hell of a lot of information, and are really nicely balanced.
I'm looking forward to more Politics articles.
Feb 5th 2010 10:10AM My advice to you is to head over to your new realm/faction. This way you can begin raiding and seeing some endgame content prior to the new expansion coming out. Raiding will not take up all of your time of course. So stick an alt in the guild you have made with your friends.
Level a new character in this guild to enable you to continue interacting with your real life friends as you level and they pug/run instances/delete their toons. That way its the best of both worlds. You will begin to raid and you will still maintain contact with your mates.
The only thing I would suggest with this course of action however is this; don't only log into yoour new guild to raid, its just as important to get to know your new guild members than it is to stay in touch with your friends. The last thing you want is for your raiding guild to think you are only interested in gearing up from them.
Hope this helps, best of luck mate.
Feb 5th 2010 12:11AM Michael / All at WoW.com,
I've been an avid reader of this site for some time now. I trust it, and value it as a viable and knowledgeable source concerning the game I love. When I get to work in the morning its first up in my browser and it is refreshed throughout the day.
The lucid and fluid style of your writers makes articles on aspects of WoW I usually have no interest in really engaging and interesting. It is with genuine regret therefore, that I read posts such as this one.
Perhaps due to my age (I’m a little older than a lot of players I guess) I consider wow.com a news site, as oppose to a blog. (Is there a difference? Thats another discussion I guess). As such I expect a level of journalistic integrity from your writers. Impartiality, the ability to report objectively... all those things that make the idea of free media so strong.
I am really saddened to find wow.com descending into such tabloid reporting. "Dubious means," "Legitimate World First." Come on guys, you are better than this.
The entire WoW community has some sort of opinion on the Ensidia incident. They (at least I hope,) rely on you for honest and fair reporting. I have no opinion either way, but I do know that Ensidia have put forth their case publicly, and put it forward very well in some cases, and not as well in others. Blizzard are yet to make any sort of statement (not that they need to of course, but one would imagine a company who allege to put as much stock in its community as they do would make some sort of comment...)
Anyway, I have digressed. I just wanted to say that this post is a massive let down, and I really hope that with recent staffing changes it is not a sign of things to come.
Feb 1st 2010 8:30PM I really would love one of those Saurfang & Putricide... shirts
Oct 22nd 2009 9:32PM Im in the UK and I was alright... no latency or anything... it was a bit of a shock when I got the announcement saying the servers were going down... But at least it gave me a chance to watch Question Time.
Aug 17th 2009 3:29AM My condolances for your loss man. I usually refrain from comments on threads such as this... I mean, you dont know me from Adam, but I was compelled to bring to your attention the depth of perception you seem to have, coupled with your eloquent writing style, and your ability to contextualise concepts such as this; they are massive strong points that I have no doubt will really assist you in finding sense through all this.
Im always on the lookout for WoW players who have an understanding of just how much this game can have an effect on people, I feel a little less alone after reading this for sure.
My hat is off to you man. A really very moving article.
Jul 23rd 2009 10:33AM By Tim Burton I of course meant Danny Elfman.
Jul 23rd 2009 10:27AM A bit off-the-wall but Nick Cave and Warren ellis's Soundtrack to The Assassination Of Jesse James was absolutely stunning. Haunting and urgent and memorable. I would love to see Raimi take a different approach to the music than the normal fantasy epics. Even though the Harry Potter scores, the LOTR scores were all stunning, I would love to see something a little more minimal, something that supports the mood rather than drowns it. I cant see it happening, but I would be over the moon if it did.
As for Tim Burton, his Spidey score was real nice. I love his style and have collected his soundtracks for a long time, but I cant see it fitting in WoW. If they chose him however I wouldnt be annoyed, I would look forward to it as I ususally do.
