Raid composition and the role gap {WoW}

Feb 17th 2011 4:14PM I completely agree.. Our raids are suffering right now because of that :P

Drama Mamas: Raiding while female {WoW}

Oct 22nd 2010 3:16PM I have to agree with Robin.
I had this discussion on a podcast from our server of Antonidas, and I talk about not only being a female player, but being a female GM.
Also explaining "Girls don't play wow" Which is the title of the podcast.
Find it on Itunes: Stopcast Topic "Girls don't play wow"

Being a female wow player doesn't make you special. You are one of the guys anyways :P

Official forum changes, real life names to be displayed {WoW}

Jul 6th 2010 1:14PM @ Dreamstorm

Has happened without RealID. Yes.. a wow player showing up on a guildies doorstep.. with much surprises..

At any rate. I think its a good idea. Although I'm not thrilled with everyone knowing my name.. there are options to hide it. For example: Don't post on the forums. Another, Change your privacy settings on your facebook and myspace accounts. I mean, you already blab your personal info all over twitter and what not.. why is doing it on wow any different?

Cataclysm Press Event: Guild talents and currency scrapped {WoW}

Jun 15th 2010 3:34PM How about overhauling the Tabard creation option?

They are so ugly. And there is no creativity in it. WTB BETTER GUILD TABARDS!

Breakfast Topic: Dealing with unpleasant players {WoW}

Jun 8th 2010 1:12PM I agree Grovin..

Why would anyone want to play a game where they constantly get e-bullied?
Especially since e-bullying is becoming one of the newest problems of today :P

Breakfast Topic: Dealing with unpleasant players {WoW}

Jun 8th 2010 12:33PM Thats why I keep my tank and healer friends really close.. especially when it comes to the queue.
But on the occasion I do a random, and someone is being a complete asshat.. I simply tell them,

"You can leave.."

In the random dungeon queue, anyone is replaceable. Enjoy your 30 minute debuff, and don't let the mobs hit you in the ass on your way out. If its a trollfest, I'd rather enjoy my 30 minute debuff and work on something else. Random queues should be quick and to the point, not where angsty teenagers and bad eggs roam!

The baddies don't solely tread in random queues.. I know particularly on my server (where epeens stand fully erect in dal at all times), if you don't keep them in check when you're pugging for the random, or voa.. then a few rage quits might ensue..

I generally take the reigns, and once i get my 25 voa together, here is my dialogue:

"This is how I run my raids, There is no epeen or bashing other players. Recount will NOT be linked, or you will be removed. Ranged will kill all of the frozen orbs. If you are ranged, and do not do your job, then you should have rolled a ret paladin! Lets not make loot a scene, and be loot whores, and get this done. If anyone has a problem with this, then leave now! Thank you!"

And I generally never hit a snag in my 25 voas ;). Get your frosties. Get your loot. And be on your way.

My way to ward off the trolls, is to take inititive, Kill them with kindness, and tell it how it is without being a jerk.

Usually the jerks are actually really bad players.. Hit em where it hurts!

Poll: Selling the Celestial Steed is... {WoW}

Apr 15th 2010 3:48PM I think it would be okay if it were going for a cause.. The donation to the make a wish foundation from the sales of the monk and lil' kt, I think was awesome!

But a mount for pure profit??

I know times are hard... but are they for Blizzard?
