Breakfast Topic: Has Cataclysm let you down? {WoW}

Jan 11th 2011 8:07AM Azshara's Veil can also be found in Tol Barad...

Cata just delivers on what it promised, an update to a six year old game that we all love. Minor bugs or small balance issues aside, no one does it like Blizzard

The Light and How to Swing It: New paladin heals in Cataclysm {WoW}

Sep 26th 2010 2:26PM I don't know if those are your videos, but could you perhaps load up ones that actually show healing numbers for Holy Radiance? as well as a better view of Light of Dawn?

Blizzard helps authorities track fugitive {WoW}

Jan 5th 2010 8:23AM Two things just need to be said about this.

1. Blizzard did the right thing in THIS case. He breaks the law, fairly severely with a warrant out for his arrest. The police would have gotten this information one way or another and, as a good reputable company they should and did apply. This does only apply to cases like this, and it is a very slippery slope they put themselves on here.
I think it is their job to keep our information, that we give them, private to most everyone. In this case yes it was the police, and not some random guy going in asking for credit card numbers. Still this was a clear case in that yes they should, but what stops someone from now saying, "oh this guy has unpaid tickets and plays wow, lets go ask blizzard". which could very easily get out of hand, not only for blizz, but for other supposedly "private" information we give up to people.
Do i think they will start giving up addresses and card numbers next week? or ever for that matter? no, i dont, but it just does open the door a bit as to what information they keep private, and to what extent.

2. Everyone also has to remember, Blizzard is a privatly owned company, and they are under no obligation to the Players in regards to the information we give them. Their Terms of Service are slightly ambiguous in the area of what info of yours is released, and This is exactly why.
Everyone has to remember once and for all that we pay them for the ability to use their Game, Servers and Forums, and they dont owe us a thing when it comes down to it. Amendments and Civil Rights always apply for the US, but in a privately owned setting, Blizzard could ban anyone they want for any reason they want, just like they CAN give up any information you give them to anyone they want.
They don't do this cause, to be quite frank, they are not a dumb company, and no one should be afraid to play their games knowing the cops are manhunting people through open information.

In Summary, Blizz did good, and if something like this happens again they just need to use the same judgment every time.
They can do pretty much what they want when they want cause its their information we give them willingly, but they are a smart company who doesn't make a habit of ticking off their customers on purpose

(Notice i say ON PURPOSE, just to stop the next poster who of course is going to say "Oh yah sur3 Blizzz nevar ticks peepz off!"... im just prefacing here)

Totem Talk: Patch 3.3 and shamans, part 1 {WoW}

Dec 13th 2009 7:04PM Yeah this would be a lot easier, hopefully he can place it somewhere in the article next time, but who knows. Anyway I am the OP of this thread, Xodarap, and i really want to encourage everyone to take a look at it and make a vote/point from where we are now.

http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=21723846695&sid=1

We have really kept a mature discussion going about what we can do to fix it, and were going to get a real vote and ideas forum going until we come to something really reasonable, Please go check it out and place your own ideas and votes down.

I only request that you read the comments already made so you don't end up fighting a point we have passed up already, unless you can make a new valid point about it

VIVA LA ELEMENTAL!!!

Totem Talk: Patch 3.3 and shamans, part 1 {WoW}

Dec 13th 2009 6:23PM How would i go about sending an Email to Mathew Rossi?

We have an awesome shaman thread going on the forums right now and would really like some input and attention to what I think is some great mature Shaman discussion about some very interesting changes that could be implemented
