The Queue: Orange Coke is totally Warcraft-related {WoW}

May 18th 2011 12:03PM I liked Pepsi Clear too. Everyone I know thinks I'm crazy for liking it, but they're wrong, it was good.

Breakfast Topic: How do you cope with broken addons? {WoW}

May 11th 2011 9:18AM I hate when addons break, drives me crazy, but I deal with it, somehow. It'd be nice if there were a better indication of which addons would be broken in every new patch so you could disable them before going into the game, so you don't get massive lag, frame rate problems, or game crashes as soon as you log in. Recount caused me to go to less than 1FPS for example.

Breakfast Topic: How do you cope with broken addons? {WoW}

May 11th 2011 9:15AM I was stuck without it for a bit too, but then I found out they had a beta posted on their site and installed that. It's worked fine ever since.

Breakfast Topic: The curious phenomenon of "reverse burnout" {WoW}

May 10th 2011 9:27AM I dealt with a similar situation, where I was unable to raid anymore on my old server with my old guild (this was 2-3 years ago) and this went on for several months and I found myself getting bored of the game very quickly when I was told I wasn't geared enough to raid or they already had their spots filled or whatever lame excuse they came up (they wouldn't even help gear up people to help fill in if regulars couldn't make it). One day I get fed up with all of their BS and rolled a brand new toon on a new server (a DK, but still), where I knew no one (the previous guild on the previous server had some people who at one point I considered real life friends, but their behavior in-game caused me to re-evaluate that). When I transferred, I leveled my DK and a Paladin and eventually joined a low end guild due to lack of guilds advertising at that time. That guild died within a month or 2 and then I was guildless for a little while before I found a new guild, and became one of their main raiders and the off-tank for most fights and occasional main tank. That guild managed to down LK on 10 man normal after wiping for months on end the night before Cata came out. They were starting Cata raid content around the end of December when my subscription ran out. I took a break from the game and came back 3 months later and the guild was essentially dead. All the main group either took a break, went to Rift, or just disappeared. So after a month or so of that, myself and a couple of others who were part of the main group started raiding with another guild and some of their friends from other guilds. A month or so of that and we all joined that guild and now regularly raid 3+ nights per week. We've cleared every boss on 10 man normal except Cho'gall/Nef/Al'Akir, with Cho'gall we got him down to 90K and wiped, which sucked. But we're making progress there and eventually we'll get into 10 man heroics.

TLDR: If you're not happy with your current in-game situation, either take a break as some have suggested, find a new guild that you've researched and has proven to be actively raiding (Armory is useful for that), or roll a new toon on a new server.

Officers' Quarters: When raiders hold your guild hostage {WoW}

May 9th 2011 3:32PM I can kinda understand where the people being subbed out are coming from, seeing as how I used to be in a guild where I was someone who was a substitute raider a lot of the time. I used to be in the main group but during one of my breaks they decided to replace me permanently with someone else, which I guess is fine and all, but I should've had the opportunity to earn my spot back, IMO, but I was never given said opportunity. That being said, it sounds like these players were aware of the situation before joining the raid/guild, which if that is indeed the case, then they really have no one to blame but themselves. If they didn't want to be substitutes, then they shouldn't have joined and found a raid/guild that needed more regulars. That is what I did, when I rolled a toon on a new server. I was sick of being left out of raids since we didn't have enough regulars for a 25 man group nor for two 10 man groups, and I was sick of them not helping gear anyone up except the main group either.

The Queue: The cool guys {WoW}

May 8th 2011 3:16PM We need either a mute addon for the IKD or another pet/toy that can kill her, similar to the train destroyer. Someone in my raid group will invariably have it out during the entire raid and she will not shut the hell up. Or they could make her player targetable so we can kill her ourselves.

Breakfast Topic: Behavior unbecoming a player {WoW}

Apr 29th 2011 3:33PM I've done this as well. I'm usually the off-tank for my raid group, but on some fights I'm the main tank (for example Chimaeron). I have to switch specs & gear fairly frequently and there's been more than one occasion where I've forgotten to switch one or the other, so the other tank will usually now ask before any pull where I have to switch to another spec if I have switched or not. I also sometimes forgot to put a presence back up after the spec switch (which you should be automatically put into the spec's presence when you switch to it IMO).

The Queue: Enjoy some Diablo lore {WoW}

Apr 21st 2011 6:00PM Another thing re: hero classes. They also seem to me to be derived from WC3. Death Knights were one of many different classes that hero characters were able to be (Arthas being the best example of that). And I personally believe that if we get another expansion, that there will be a new class (hero or otherwise) with it (BC = 2 new races, WOTLK = 1 new class, Cata = 2 new races, ? = 1 new class?).

Ask the Devs round 5 achievement questions answered {WoW}

Apr 13th 2011 3:33PM 2 things:

1) Does anyone really give a crap about RBGs? They're practically not possible to do unless you're a in PVP-focused guild and that limits the exposure of the content to only a small portion of the player base. I was really looking forward to this feature until I found it you had to be in a group of 10 to participate. Why can't it just have a team rating for pre-mades and an individual rating for non-pre-mades? That would make more sense to me.

2) What's the point of having achievement points even exist if they will never be used for anything? WoW isn't a 1970s-1980s arcade game, it's an MMORPG. Points for the sake of points are well, pointless.
