The Queue: Blame Alex {WoW}

Feb 29th 2012 2:31PM So it has come to this...

I recall a few weeks ago noticing that MLP hadn't permeated into WoW Insider. With it's prevalence online and general awesomeness, I figured it'd only be a matter of time. I'm glad I was correct.


Heart of the Aspects video and giveaway {WoW}

Feb 15th 2012 1:32PM me please. thank you.

The Queue: I write about elves on Usenet, Mom {WoW}

Feb 14th 2012 11:32AM That is "aresome."

I'm really not trying to be critical of typos. I really think that should be a word. I'm going to work it into my daily conversation.

Officers' Quarters: A gkicked player takes revenge {WoW}

Feb 7th 2012 10:02AM The difference is that when you are "meta-gaming" your still doing it to advance yourself in game. Your EVE example of infiltration and robbery is still for the purpose of bettering or positioning themselves better in game. While you can argue that sending items C.O.D has in game motives, it is clear that his overall intention is to make all guild member's lives as difficult as possible. He's not trying to break apart a guild as part of some in-game strategy. He's harassing individuals and making their lives a living hell.

The Queue: I fail at chess {WoW}

Jan 10th 2012 12:51PM I know it's just my crackpot opinion, but I always felt like "soulbound" should be equivalent to Bind on Account. I view it as, I, the player, acts as the "soul" of a character. I mean, my characters can't play at the same time (on one account) and they are lifeless until I choose to play them. Thus, they share the same soul and you might as well have the items available to all of them. Of course, this opinion of soul probably makes rp-ers cry role playing tears.

Drama Mamas: The etiquette of AFKing in a group or raid {WoW}

Jan 9th 2012 6:24PM Yeah, you're right. It does mention those things, and I wholly agree with the preventative measures. I think I was expecting to see answers about reacting to the situations as they arose, and in particular, how best to convey them to the group. Obviously, if you're leaving on Deathwing to go chow on a pizza, you deserve a kick, regardless of what you say. I guess I'm just curious what to tell these people you're letting down, even if you already know the outcome.

And just out of unmerited curiosity, I would like to know what's best to say in emergency situations. I like to think a simple "brb, desk on fire" would suffice, but I'm open to more polite and/or hilarious responses.

Drama Mamas: The etiquette of AFKing in a group or raid {WoW}

Jan 9th 2012 4:45PM It's obvious that running instances is a commitment. It is absolutely your responsibility to only commit when you can give it your full attention, without interruptions. However, I feel like the question posed by the OP was more-or-less unanswered. He wanted to know what you do when the unexpected happens. If the doorbell rings or the kids wake up, do you ignore it and fight until the boss is down? Do you bolt like hell to the door, jumping furniture as if it were hurdles just to get to the door fast enough? Do you tell the shady high school student that the key is under the doormat and they can come in, take money out of your wallet and pay themselves for the pizza delivery? I could be wrong, but I get the impression he was wondering what is best etiquette in those situations when they happen, even if they took every precaution to prevent them.
