Well maybe, but then the next time he tried it, he might figure out how to do it better. Remember we were all what you call 'noobs' at some point, but we learned how to play better, largely by doing encounters that challenged us in some way. But you seem to have decided that people who play 5-person instances somehow don't deserve to experience anything challenging.
Jun 22nd 2009 12:01PM I'm aware that this forum is kind of a strange place to be discussing this matter in depth, but just to point out, that poll has been criticised on a number of levels, including the fact that when it came out, its producers actually used it to predict that noone would win in the first round. There was a very high level of 'refuse to say who I'm voting for' or 'don't know', which would be understandable in a country where people might be reluctant to criticise the government over the phone to a total stranger. Also, my understanding is that Iran would be allowed to have nuclear power by the international community, just not nuclear weapons.

You could say the same about (say) an amateur football team, but those guys still train to be the best they can. Why shouldn't WoW be the same?
Jun 19th 2009 4:52AM Am I the only player who's really underwhelmed by drakes as rewards for raiding achievements anyway? It just seems a bit unimaginative on Blizzard's part, instead of some new really great gear, they just stick in a different-coloured lizard. It does seem to motivate some people, quite a few in my guild are working towards the iron one by doing all those contrived Ulduar achievements. But to me, I feel that the different drakes aren't distinctive enough to be really worth busting your guts for. There are a couple of Twilight Drakes in my guild, but anyone who recognises them and is impressed is gonna be impressed by your 'Twilight Vanquisher' title anyway (or would have been in the time when that was an impressive title). The only really distinctive mounts I can think of in the game are the Ashes of Alar one (still only 2 on my server as far as I know), the flying carpet, the Setthek Halls one, the turtle from fishing, and I guess the Stratholme one although loads of people seem to have that these days. Anyway, screed over.

Dude, not only do I admit that, I've never claimed anything else. I guess the point is that some of us average WoW players like a challenge; others don't.
