I like this change, physics-wise, and as a RPG'er (I know, D&D nerd... *sigh*), I find it fun justifying these things so.

i c wut u did thar.
Mar 16th 2010 6:37PM I almost squealed with delight uppon reading the Advent Children line. Like, honestly, nearly *squealed*. Which I think would raise questions in my office, I'm a grown man. Well, 21, and I still get asked for ID at movies (15+ movies even *sigh*), but nevertheless, you jeapordized my dignity!
Mar 16th 2010 5:57PM ^ This. So much this.
This is the first time I've ever added to my Favorites folder an individual article. I've Facebooked some of your former articles to certain gold-buyers I know, but this is a first for Favorites. Jolly good show.

My mage objects to that as speculative.
My Priest raises a motion of "Unless it's an overgeared Warlock who not only rips aggro off the tank, but also fails at managing his mana, and repeatedly funnels his health into mana to compensate." In which case, not only do I need to heal his stupid ass through his squishy aggro, but I also need to compensate for his mana inefficiency while keeping the rest of the group (namely; the tank) safely bubbled and Mended (PoM ftw).
Also, the next time a DPS DK death-grips a mob the tank already has aggro on, and, realising his folly, proceeds to run AWAY FROM THE TANK, imma recind his bubble/flash heal privlidgez.

Mar 11th 2010 12:47AM In these cases (which I see all the time), my guess is that your DPS(s) and sometimes a healer, have been sitting in a queue for 5-20 minutes (usually 10min at 80 on pure DPS on my server), and have, in that time:
a) Alt-Tabbed to Facebbok
b) Went afk to make coffee/food/love
c) Went afk to attend to spousal (or parental) aggro
d) Went afk to attend to crying child
e) Went afk to do homework (hah!)
f) Alt+Tabbed to play a different game
g) Alt+Tabbed to troll the Blizzard Forums, WoW.com or MMO-Champion
i) Is busy having a /dance off in Goldshire or Brill.
Either way, these people are idiots, and I can say that because my main is a Mage who geared to a 5300+ Gearscore purely through the RDF tool and never missed a port-in. Why? Because I won't queue if I'm going to get up, and I'll de-queue if I have to get the door or something, also, when I do alt-tab, I keep the WoW sound set to play in the background so I hear the whopping great fanfare when the group forms.
The sad thing is that we never know the names of these afk-ers, so we can't report their careless wasting of our collective time. I've wanted to rant about this. For a long time.
Mar 11th 2010 12:36AM Wow. I honestly never thought of that. Can I marry you? Judging by your tag, I'm guessing you're male, which could be a problem in my jurisdiction (and religion...), but I'll make this exception. Seriously though, brilliant, sorry to Nexus and HoS, I won't be seeing you guys around much anymore. (CoS I don't mind so much, or Oculus, at least they give seven and eight badges each respectively)
