Gold Capped: Buying with Auctioneer's snatch list {WoW}

Mar 13th 2010 1:43PM The Grammar Hammer doesn't fail, it is merely reinforced and redirected by application of knowledge.

My bad, good call on the noun/adjective thing. I had been clinging to an archaic belief.

Gold Capped: Buying with Auctioneer's snatch list {WoW}

Mar 13th 2010 1:11PM Grammar Hammer STRIKES!

The correct use of the word "myriad" does not require "of", so you would just say that "Auctioneer has a myriad uses."

^_^ But seriously. Good article. You're making me rich, man.

WoW Rookie: What's "move out of the fire" in your language? {WoW}

Mar 11th 2010 11:29PM Would you be so kind as to move out of the fire, please?

Beweg dein beschissenen Arsch aus dem verdammten Feuer, du blödsack!

Upcoming Adjustments announced for Old Kingdom, Nexus, Culling of Stratholme {WoW}

Jan 12th 2010 2:46PM This has been mentioned before in other threads, but maintains a special relevance when it comes to Old Kingdom - tanks are becoming huge jerks.

Often, my lfg groups cycle through four or five tanks before we find one who'll stay (I heal). The ones who do stay stand a good chance of being schmucks - i.e. skipping bosses.

Now, if the whole group is all for skipping the optional bosses in old kingdom, hey - that's fine. But when all three dps and the healer beg, plead, and grovel at the feet of the tank for heaven's sake to stop pulling and go the other way, and he just plays the jock and keeps merrily trucking his way onward, there's a problem.

I, as the healer, will oftentimes offer to stop healing the tank and let him just die, but the dps are so afraid of him they'll never go along with the planned reprimand. "He'll just leave and go find another group - heal him, or we'll kick you!" No matter how disappointed a group is with their tank, they are held in such cowed terror that they won't ever go against his jerkface demands. They don't understand that yes, he may just drop, and find another group of pussy dungeoneers who'll let him do whatever he wants, but not to make sure he understands that his exclusivity does not make him a god would be wildly irresponsible.

You sometimes need to lose a battle to win the war.

We need a system that labels conceited tanks (and players in general) as such that they might live with their shame and understand their role as one of many.

"Pwntank the Self-Important Asshat" might have trouble finding groups, and rethink his former asshattery. Although, some of the players I've met recently through LFG might wear such a title proudly.

Breakfast Topic: The Happy Accidents {WoW}

Dec 19th 2009 11:16AM I have a lot of issues with tanks, and their inflated self-importance since the latest patch, but one particular gnome warrior on rampage, we'll call him "D", keeps my faith in tanks afloat.

He ends runs with "Keep smoking weed!" as his farewell line. Could you ask for a better, more relaxed, tank? With the skills to back up that chill attitude, D has soothed many a nerdrage.

Thanks, little buddy.

Yes, we know some stores have Cataclysm release dates {WoW}

Dec 12th 2009 1:12AM You miss the point. they win, but -you. don't. lose.-

You're still being provided a service, basically for free (far as you're concerned) and they make some money on the side, but it's not out of your pocket, unless you were gonna put that 5 bucks in the bank because you wanted the interest which I highly doubt.

you win, they win. even the greenest BA students know what that's called - damn good business strategy.

And I get my cataclysm when I want it, not after the restock a week later (people are stoked enough about this that somebody who didn't preorder stands a good chance of getting shafted and waiting a week for their copy). I don't see a downside here.
