All they're asking for is your blood. {WoW}

Mar 20th 2007 7:38AM its as simple as this.
there is a major blood shortage over there.

this is just a publicity stunt to get more saturation for the blood drive.

I think its a good idea in that it gets more people to donate blood, but a bad idea in that its reward is to reinstate banned players.
If they were banned, there should have been a good reason.

A blood drive with a different MMORPG reward, say like a epic combat pet or Epic flying mount for the reward.

This would target the entire population of a game, rather than just the people who had been banned (i would assume a signifigantly smaller population)

Pet Care for Shamans (a.k.a "Mike Told You So") {WoW}

Aug 31st 2006 9:47PM um, am i the only one thinking of the MAJOR flaw here?

totems usually only have 5 HP (unless specified as something else)
and with talens, have a maximum range of 40 yards

so these spells are 100% useless for pvp, as any player only has to kill the totem with a single hit for it to waste a big chunk of mana, and 20mins of cooldown.
sure, they *may* have some use in PvE, but come on, compared to the spells pally's have gotten, this is a joke.....
i am one majorly unimpressed shammy

The Plight of Australian Players {WoW}

Aug 29th 2006 6:57PM as an aussie player, i do have to admit, life kinda sux....
server shutdown (when there is no extended maintance) is 10pm tuesday night... not fun!
average ping is ~300ms and if u get under 250ms your considered a god.
major lag spikes occur frequently, and have lasted up to 37mins in which NOTHING is possible.
on the plus side tho, none of the oceanic servers seem to have to undergo the hardware retrofitting upgrades that cause major problems for some of the US servers.
and the main problem with pings is not actually blizzards fault (for us)
between australia and the western coast of the US exists the PacificFibreLink (terminating in sydney, where i reside), a fire optic link with bandwith and ping times that would be more than suited for blizzards need.
the problem? Australian IP's and most importantly, Telstra (owner of the Link) (also known to many as Hellstra) if you think blizzard server managment is bad, youd commit suicide if you ever saw the managment of the telstra servers....
and as there is only a single link between US and Aus, ALL the data from around australia has to bounce to sydney before finally being sent back to the US.
If you live in perth (and alot of my guildies do) this can make the problem much worse...

Patch Day Excitement {WoW}

Aug 23rd 2006 7:29AM well ive been playin 1.12 for few hours now, and part from the now rolling restarts, there isnt a single aspect of the the Blizzard's new UI that doesnt in some way clash with 3rd party ones.
essentially, you have to turn off manually all of blizzards "fancy new autocasting" features in order to cast any friendly spells (heal, buff, etc on party or non-party friendly)
i could try and list all the glitches ive discovered with 1.12 and cosmos, but id be here all day......

the BG's are good tho, i counted 16 simultanous BG's running :)
