The Queue: Attack of the Killer Tomatoes {WoW}

Apr 4th 2012 11:35AM Sadly, Blizz sees Gnomes as little more than joke-fodder. So while seeing a Gnomish Monk in the cinematic would be awesome, I don't see it happening. But I would love to see them decide it's time to change their ways, and prove me wrong!

Breakfast Topic: Do you like PvP? {WoW}

Apr 3rd 2012 10:46AM I really dislike PvP. There's just too big of a gearing curve before you can be competitive. Not to mention that in World PvP and BG's, the beginner PvP'er is likely going up against people he has no chance against.

It's just not fun, and there's no incentive for me to go through the painful process of being one- or two- shotted over and over and over again, to get geared up so I have a decent chance.

And, TBH, the people I'm likely to go against all seem to be asshats looking to stroke their e-peens, rather than people who want to encourage more folks to participate in an activity that they enjoy. I'm talking about bad behavior in BG's, people trying to trick lower-level players into flagging so they can one-shot them, and max-level characters lurking in Hellfire Penninsula and other PvP objectives so they can, once again, one-shot level-appropriate characters.

Those folks may be in the minority of PvP'ers for all I know. Doesn't change the fact that it's really off-putting.

So, in the end, I just avoid PvP because it's just not fun or interesting for me.

Around Azeroth: Bring me a shrubbery! {WoW}

Apr 3rd 2012 10:33AM "Or a liberal application of pesticides" I think you meant "herbicides".

This looks like the "Clever Plant Disguise Kit" (http://www.wowhead.com/item=60502) from the "Axis of Awful" quest in Loch Modan. Although, there may be other times where this effect is used.

This is the most bizarre and entertaining Dave Kosak interview ever {WoW}

Apr 1st 2012 9:37PM Loved it! Would've loved it more if the music didn't cover up what the interviewer was saying at times. There's a couple of questions I still haven't been able to decipher.

Know Your Lore: The curious dissonance of Alliance leveling {WoW}

Apr 1st 2012 8:42PM clundgren, I don't intend to pick your post apart. However, I think you're way off in your summarization. Let me just focus on one small issue to illustrate what I mean:

"Swamp of sorrows is firmly under Allance control now."

Huh? What are you talking about? Alliance "wins" in the battle of Stonard-- and then withdraws and allows the Horde to regroup and basically take the place back. And that's from the _Alliance_ perspective. I believe from the Horde perspective, they didn't even lose the battle, nor miss a beat in continuing 'business as usual' there.

It's true that there is more of an Alliance presence in what has always been a contested zone-- but that's because we had no real presence at all there, before. We now have a base there, but the zone is in no way "under Alliance control".

The Queue: Suffer for fashion {WoW}

Mar 31st 2012 6:24PM It probably really is for Ratings reasons, rather than the fact that some parents might be bothered by it.

That said, If the theme of the tree is "Drunken Boxing"-type Martial Arts, then the new spell names fit it fine. Drunken Boxing's about emulating the unpredictable and unorthodox movements of a drunken person, to make it hard to hit you-- it's not about actually being drunk.

Personally, I'm not going to let the name of a couple of spells upset me.

Mists of Pandaria Beta: Male pandaren hairstyles gallery {WoW}

Mar 30th 2012 11:49PM I see a fair number of different colors, but only about 5 different hairstyles. I wonder if the have more in the pipeline?
