Officers' Quarters: Be kind to your tanks and healers {WoW}

Jan 11th 2011 1:58AM Although this article seems to be more about treating your guild tanks/healers nicely, I highly agree with you. There has not been ONE TIME in Cata that I have queued alone, around 60% of my runs at 5-man guild runs and 30% 4-man guild runs, with the other 10% at 3-1.

Blizzard, please just close the area until it is REALLY fixed. Stop letting one side get all the advantage on a server. Give some unique ways to the shunned faction to catch up. Stop fishing for transfer money.

Blizzard responds to common Real ID concerns {WoW}

Jul 16th 2010 6:35PM I am lucky enough to live in a small town where WoW is quite popular, and I STILL don't want everyone i've ever known to know where my character is.

Not everyone gets along with everyone else y'know.

Official: Dalaran Children's Week quests not repeatable this year {WoW}

May 5th 2010 4:17AM Yes, because having freaking hildrens week which not everyone participates in working perfectly would be so worth SC2 and cata being buggy pieces of crap.




...Since it's the internet and it's hard to tell i'm going to throw you a bone and tell you I was being sarcastic.

Spiritual Guidance: The GearScore is a lie, Page 2 {WoW}

Apr 30th 2010 1:06AM Agreed.

"what is your gs"
"higher than what the gearscore addon recommends for this raid"

Scattered Shots: Gearing up without raids {WoW}

Apr 6th 2010 1:53PM sorry, but pet heals are the last heals in priority.
good tank > myself > crap tank > good dps > crap dps > pets

Ready Check: How to fill out raiding applications {WoW}

Apr 3rd 2010 8:17AM Oh, and while i'm at it, don't bother with the "you've never been in a raiding guild you don't know what it's like!!" or "you're too bad to get into a raiding guild!!". Actually, don't bother with the (wrong) assumptions at all.

Ready Check: How to fill out raiding applications {WoW}

Apr 3rd 2010 8:15AM As someone who is applying for jobs in real life right now I see a very big connection between the two. I also see a big difference: One is to get me money in real life so I can stay alive, the other for a freaking video game.

Degrading and humiliating are two words that are good to use to describe the guild application process. Let's see how "hardcore" guilds deal in cata, where if trends continue content will become even more puggable.

Breakfast Topic: Stop and smell the flowers before they're gone! {WoW}

Mar 26th 2010 7:31AM I'm actually taking a WoW-vacation now. I was ridiculously burned out on this game, every single damned second I spent on it felt like a chore, and I couldn't even bare to login if my friends weren't online and talking because I didn't feel like the gameplay alone was holding up for me.

I mean, I did my dailies which are basically a second job, then did my random heroic which have grown very, very old since the start of WotLK, then i'd do any solo content I had off cooldown (i'm a mount collector) which also felt like a chore/job, then i'd look for raid groups which usually ended up in me being frustrated and very pissed off because i'm a PuG player now (I used to be a guild player but.. now I just couldn't get myself into it again, too much responsibility for a freaking video game). Part of that is that i'm a tank now, and there just doesn't seem to be any acceptance for new tanks this late in the expansion (or at least on my server? dunno).

3.3.3 wasn't really any help for me, and it's a shame because I was hoping it'd regain my interest. A few attempts using the random battleground feature made me remember why I stopped doing PvP in the first place, and most of the other changes are so small they're barely noticeable.

Time off is CRUCIAL in world of warcraft, it becomes very grindy, repetitive and well.. depressing to keep playing on while you're not enjoying it. My friends tried to keep me playing but.. they can't just magically make the game fun for me. I'll surely be back again within a month or two, but for now I need time off. Nothing can make the game fun now, and for some reason some people can't understand that (mainly the ones that are still finding the things i find boring fun). Heroics and dailies and questing and achievements are fun for a little while, but this game just doesn't hold up when you play it alot for a long time.

Sorry for the rant, figured I needed to let that out somewhere.

Breakfast Topic: Reading rainbow {WoW}

Mar 6th 2010 5:26PM Uhm, I live in a rural, country town in VIC and I order my books straight from the WoW store, they arrive in two weeks.

Shipping isn't the cheapest, but i'm practically guaranteed quality and efficiency going through their online store.
