Upcoming mount changes {WoW}

Jun 11th 2009 12:05AM Do you realize something can't be even better than perfect?

If things are perfect as they stand now with mounts at 30, by definition the state of play was worse when mounts were obtainable at 40.

If you're going to make a comment, please try to make it be one that makes some sort of rational sense.

WoW, Casually: What is casual? {WoW}

Jun 10th 2009 3:53AM I have to disagree with the idea that you cannot rate one casual as any better or worse than another. While this works for ultra casuals that play the game in a primarily solo situation and seldom if ever instance, it breaks down when it comes to raids/heroics. There are plenty of self described casual players (myself included) that instance and while we are all having fun (hopefully) the skill varies greatly.

In any random 10 man pug you're likely to have a smattering of over geared/hardcore players who will standout both on the charts and by their demeanor, however the majority of a pug will likely consist of people who would call themselves casual. These groups live and die by whether or not this casual base is mostly folks who:

A) Know the fights already or are good enough listeners to pick things up quickly.
B) Know their specific role well. While someone might not have ideal rotations they do bring enough to fit the needs of whatever content they are attempting.

Just by being casual doesn't mean that the ability to meet these two critieria isn't discernable. Having pugged quite a bit, you start to recognize some of the same faces and tell who is better or worse at the things that make groups work.

Please don't take me to mean that I think any less of people who don't do these things or that they can't enjoy the game in whatever manner they chose. I will say that when someone's personal choices impact how other players enjoy the game, then they really should take the time develope what is really a rather meager skill set to accomplish the goal effectively.

The Queue: The roof, the roof {WoW}

Jun 10th 2009 2:18AM I've seen alot of posts about people starting DK alts on their friends' servers to get a leg up on cash. What I don't get is if you're trying to hang with your friends, you can't find one of them that will spot you the 30-50g to make up for the time you spend?

Seems to me if you're server jumping to hang, then its the time that's important. In addition, it's not as though we're talking about a life altering amount of cash. Personally anyone I know well enough to server hop to hang out with me I know well enough to hook up with 3-4 frostweave bags and 50-100g.
