Patch 4.2.0 hotfixes for Aug. 10, 2011 {WoW}

Aug 12th 2011 4:00AM vote kicking fixed the wrong way, need to make lead a voteable thing or something Imagine kicking a geed healer when the DPS and tank dies, to find your tank was in PVP GEAR for example.. imagein your lead and you and your friend, are doing perfict, and the 3 other people are from the same guild and loot drops, your buddy gets it yea, friend get vote kicked by mad guildees from other group. you cant invite them back, ...I've seen people need an item they already have for a extra chance and go over and hand it to thier guildee in the gruop when the win it....I've seen people kicked so they can bring in a guildee..

also, IMO There need to be a way to report and a severe penalty for abuseing the votekicking system..

The Daily Quest: Gearscore {WoW}

Jun 16th 2010 8:25PM My 2 cents.. To All you nay Sayers it’s a necessary evil.

Gear score looks only at ilvl it’s a quick reference if u want wow heroes everyone u invite then enjoy as people leave because it taking way too long to get formed and get going. U look at gear score get them in there and if they don’t perform u replace. If they’re in pvp gear etc again you know right way when you see their performance…

1) Remember the progression of gear 200 heroics, 213-226 naxx, 226-232 uldar, 232 toc 10 and new 5mans, 245-258 toc25 . There is no reason anyone who is serious about running ICC 10 or 25 from having at bare minim all 232 or higher gear winch by the add-on would give u a 5k gear score. Less than that your being carried by others period. With the exception of healers in icc10 can get away with a bit less. If your in 219 gear average your really for 226, not say 245 (toc25). It that simple

What your really reference is average ilvl for example someone in ilvl 200 heroic gear is not ready for say uldar /toc 10/25 etc no matter if they are the leetest player who ever lived. Nor would it be fair to “carry them” then gave them equal chance at the gear when they didn’t put the work in that everyone else did to get there and get it done..

Last toon I rolled was a hunter when I got to 80 took me about 2 weeks to get to 5k gs. If u doesn’t want to take the time to get the gear you should have to be able run something then you sure should not be reaping the rewards of said instance. During that time you’d be getting grouping experience and learning some basic skills and learning your toon better. with a 5.1k gear score on that toon I out dps many people with 5.6k+ gear score but they don’t have to work nearly as hard to get the same dps due to better gear…

The only thing that threw a monkey wrench in “gear score = skill” is blizzards down ranking higher raid marks to heroic dungeon marks. Making it easy as heck to get to at least 5k… otherwise gear score was far harder to argue with..

Most people being whiny are those with low gear wanting higher instances. It’s one thing for say your guild to chooses “to carry you” threw a run for faster gearing that they don’t really need gear from it’s totally another to expect the same of any pug..

Ready Check: AVR is dead -- what did we learn? {WoW}

May 29th 2010 6:07PM I’m almost certain this also breaks both the mods: VAMP and VampArrow which use AVR to draw circles lines etc so this should disable at least part of that mod as well. Yet no one seems to mention that....

Cataclysm badge and PvP point changes {WoW}

Apr 27th 2010 11:48AM Capping Seems to pander to the “casual players” who don’t put nearly the time or effort into their toon on a level field with hardcore players who plays many hours each day. Sounds fair (Insert sarcasm here) I’m shocked to look like the minority with most of the changes to lockouts and badges unwelcome…

Debunking another hacked authenticator story {WoW}

Feb 9th 2010 3:26PM If memory serves an artical last year on here had a interview with a account thief who stated they can get into your account at least one time even if your account has an authenticator and clean u out, your guild bank, what ever.. change your password etc
they just can't come back in. makes the authenticator nothing more then a placebo


There is a "serial number" associated with your Battle.net Mobile Authenticator program
i assume if that "serial number" where known by the hacker. (hacked cell phones are not that uncommon) the person would have all thier personal info, and a working Authenticator. maybe even acess to thier email, account etc... they could then put it on a new authenticator or what ever they want.

Not to say any of these stories are or are not legit. It is "possable" and thats what
should be of consern.
