Feb 17th 2010 5:15PM Probably a dumb question, but is there any way outside of the game to see the ammounts of hours logged into the acount? to give an overall picture of how much time is being spent in the game?
Hopefully this will be answered in the comments section and never make it to the column.
Feb 15th 2010 10:11AM maybe there should be a trial aacount version of the LFG system which would only group a player with other trial account players or full players who have purposly flagged themselves as willing to be a mentor (and their gear would be reduced in stats to the appropriate level for the purposes of said groups)
Feb 10th 2010 7:12PM have looked through a fair few of the modles on WMV and didn't notice any of them TBH but will have another look.
Feb 10th 2010 5:29PM QUESTION: Will we ever see larger people in WoW.. Who's town doesnt hve the Jolly Fat Butcher or the police officer who has had one too many donuts?
The Clergy tend to be rotund aswell but WoW doesn't reflect this... EVERYONE goes to the gym it seems.
Kinda blows a bit for when you want to make movies.
Feb 9th 2010 6:53AM I know what you meant, but the whole micro-economy thing starts moving things into a very grey area.
Feb 9th 2010 5:15AM Quote: "but the TOS clearly states that we don't actually own anything we have on our character. Even though we spend hours and hours acquiring really cool stuff, we don't have the same rights to it as something we go into a physical store and buy. "
Does that include such things as the Panderan Monk which REAL money is paid for?
Feb 5th 2010 9:56PM like I say. my knowledge is limited. but they got the "straight out of the box" version and worked with what they were given, warts and all.
If they werent meant to use it then blizz shoudl ahev amde a better job of making sure they couldnt.
Feb 5th 2010 9:46PM The way I see it, they walked into an instance blind and were presented with tools to do the job which they were required to discover along the way.
to use a really cheezy analogy, it is like the old episodes of the A-Team. They get locked in a barn which just so happens to have all of the things they will need to use to escape and foil the bad guy. Now unlike the rest of us who get the benefit of strategy guides, videos and what not. the people who do world first have no such luxutry and therefore have to use whatever they find. and if they find an I win button then hooray for them! it's blizz's fault for leaving it there. and ot my mind if they had the intellegnce to use it to their advantage then Kudos to them and shame on Blizz. that is the right and the wrong of it.
Blizz presented an instance with an I win button and then proceed to QQ when someone uses it? that isnt right TBH and the ban was unjustified in my opinion aswell as the removal of titles and loot. If anything Blizz (and the rest of us) should be thanking guys like Ensidia for bringing attention to such MASSIVE problems in the game, not punishing them for doing BLIZZ'S JOB FOR THEM.
In all hoesty I had never heard of Ensidia before this whole thing hit the fan. I don't know anything about them nor do I really care... my own guild and my own realm are all I can really be bothered with keeping track of so I'm not speaking as someone who is in their pockets, merely someone who has limited information about top end raiding looking in from the outside but blizz cannot present something that is broken (badly in this case by the sound of it) and honestly expect people not to use whatever tools are at their disposal.. It is known as initiative and as far as I have always been aware, is actually ENCOURAGED in just about every aspect of work, life and the universe in general.
Shame on you Blizz.
Feb 5th 2010 5:26AM Another issue that needs to be dealt with is that if you are running a dungeon for he first time on a character and others share quests with you, once the dungeon is completed you have no way of turning those quests in to the quest giver who is just outside the door (thinking UK and Auchindon instances here) and are then left trying to find where the quest came from to begin with and how you are supposed to get there. Perhapse a messenger service in capital cities could fix that (i.e. a mob who would happily deliver completed quests for a small price)
Feb 3rd 2010 9:38AM how can you call it abusing the system?
if it were abusing the system it would be against TOS. all it equates to is using a claculator to balance your checkbook instead of a pencil and paper.
