Blood Pact: A look at the Q&A {WoW}

Jul 13th 2009 8:32PM I've seen Warlocks and Hunters as being two sides of a somewhat maligned coin for quite some time now. The Devs seem to have lost sight, a bit, of the defining flavors of these classes. They spend an awful lot of time thinking up enough new content, but man oh man, nothing would revitalize the game for me like having the classes I love get some much needed updates, both functional and cosmetic.

Blood Pact: Of spells and bad metaphors {WoW}

Jun 20th 2009 5:33PM Wow, people seem to be completely unaware of the fact that, and let me be clear, WRITING IS SUBJECTIVE! Wow.com, and blogs in general, have common over-arching styles to them just as the AP and Ganette have for their newspapers. Internet blogs are commonly more conversational in nature and have a tendency to ramble. They ALL do that. Are you guys going to start bashing on Penny Arcade now as well?

Do blogs often break the traditional rules of proper writing taught to us in high school? Yes. Does it matter? No. Should you really, honestly, publicly criticize the writing style of the author in the forums? Not unless he's gone completely 'round the bend as has written "I am a fish" 72 times on quick succession and left the article at that.

Pretending to grade the author's writing style is rude, and really only serves as an artificial assertion of superiority on your part. If it bugs you that much, send him an e-mail.

May 19th 2009 7:41PM I tried not to respond, I really did, but I hate seeing posts like this because people seem to have some psychotic need to cling to incorrectness.

Malkovonos - "I love how you guys are still referencing World of Fight like it's some new ripoff and not just Warhammer Online."

Warhammer came first. Done. Granted the computer game (the mmo, anyway) came into being after WoW, but the license for Warhammer predates Blizzard's existence by about 20 years, at least. In all honesty, Blizzard wouldn't even exist were it not for Warhammer. They petitioned Games Workshop years and years ago because they wanted to make a Warhammer RTS. At the time, someone else held the license, and Games Workshop told Blizzard it wasn't negotiable at that time. Blizzard, being the enterprising people they are, went off and made their RTS anyway, using the same races as those in Warhammer, but changed the names and a few basic components around in order to make Warhammer.
So, in all honesty, World of Fight is to WoW, what WoW is to Warhammer. A simple, semi-knockoff with enough things changed so as to avoid a lawsuit.

So please, Warhammer is not a rip-off of WoW. The game and its lore has existed since before the average WoW player was even born.
