LOL gay! {WoW}

May 28th 2007 1:00PM I agree with you on all points. That kind of language is immature and homophobic. It seems to me that certain kinds of language seem to be indicative of a player that isn't a lot of fun to be around or group with. If I hear someone says 'that's so gay' I just won't group with them.

I was in a guild that was amazingly obnoxious on vent. They wouldn't stop calling each other gay, or some item was gay... well pretty much what you said. I talked to the guild leader, he didn't have a problem with all the homophobia, so I left. It's been about two years, and I have to be honest, I haven't run into that problem within a guild since.

Breakfast Topic: What's your realm's motto? {WoW}

Forum post of the day: Are the Naaru evil? {WoW}

Apr 30th 2007 7:12PM I'm into 'bland and stable' being the new 'edgy and unpredictable' because, frankly, it keeps us on our toes. If a great good is always too good and therefore evil, like the Scarlet Monestary to draw a WoW example, then that defiance of a stereotype becomes in and of itself a stereotype. Therefore, in order to defy it and to be edgy or unpredictable, the writers decided to make the Naaru good and purely good.

Why are they good? What do they stand to gain? They stand to gain a world without the Burning Legion where they could live in relative peace. That sounds like motivation enough.

Fed up with ingame gold whispers {WoW}

Apr 12th 2007 11:19AM I'm unclear as to what happens when a character is 'banned' or suspended from the game. Is it just that specific character, or all the players characters? If it's not the latter, it should be.

I also think that harsher penalties should be applied in cases like this, if they aren't already. Accounts should be banned permanently, not just for that little slap on the wrist three-day nonsense. Spamming gold and power-leveling sites should be a perma-ban.

I do agree that Blizzard should put some kind of clear anti-spam warning in the TOS that under no certain terms are you to advertise for gold selling sites, but I'm not sure if they are within their rights to sue. If they put it in the terms of service, they may be able to. Either way, it would deter a certain amount of this spam.

Nihilum recruiting: females need not apply [Updated] {WoW}

Mar 20th 2007 6:01PM Women on vent distract you and cause a wipe? That is the single stupidest thing I've ever heard. Because you can't seem to concentrate when a woman is talking, you wipe, and blame it on her. That is so idiotic, it boggles my mind.

I'm not going to say that I've never had an issue with a woman that I've grouped with or played with, but I've also had problems with dudes. In the end the issue of maturity or talent or 'drama' has NOTHING to do with gender and everything to do with the person in question.

People are a problem, not women or men. And frankly, Nilwhatever are a problem too.

I must agree that it seems like they're taking a very gay friendly stance towards their guild. Everybody on their server should take time out and thank them for making it okay to be a gay male playing Warcraft. Everybody should go do that now, and be creative about the wording.

Blue Notes: Alchemy is random, the Consortium are swindlers {WoW}

Mar 8th 2007 7:48PM My GF discovered the Flask of Relentless Assault. She was 66 at the time and a 350'ish alchemist. Like me, she's a casual player and not in a raiding guild and as far as we can tell she's the only person on our server who can make them.

The system may be a little too rare, but that's what makes it special. I would love it if they had something like this for tailoring/enchanting. Bonus systems like this are kind of like easter eggs. They make the game interesting. It's equivalent to getting an epic drop while killing things, you can't grind for it, but it may happen one day!

WoW Moviewatch: Rioting across the realms {WoW}

Feb 26th 2007 6:07PM There really is no statement in this 'riot' video. Most of the participants were people who rolled level 1 priests so they could have an excuse to run around Ironforge and yell a lot. It would be slightly more meaningful if there were actual high level priests and other high level characters participating. It's not civil disobedience or rioting if you have nothing to lose.

Running around screaming in Ironforge only disrupts other players who had nothing to do with the nerfs. "Stab our backs when you trash our halls, trash a bank if you've got real balls." --Dead Kennedys

All in all, a pointless video.

Breakfast Topic: Favorite off-spec {WoW}

Feb 17th 2007 10:52AM "Slack-ass specs"? You sound like the guy who was bashing my tank-friend for using a shield to quest. I'll never understand the amount of hatred spewed over watching somebody play a video game differently. Everytime a raider opens his or her mouth, it makes me happier that I'm not a raider.

I'm a frost spec mage, and I play mostly with a resto druid and a prot warrior. I always love when a shadow priest joins the group vs. a rogue or hunter. They're usually very adept at their class and, yes, their damage output is simply amazing. Same with Ret. pallies. I can't think of a more useful group member than either of those classes.

My favorite to play is a shadow-priest, hands-down. Anyone who slags them off should roll one and see what all the fuss is about.

Breakfast Topic: I can't believe we survived that... {WoW}

Feb 6th 2007 11:52AM Last summer, my guild ran ZG for the first time and we had a lot of people heading in there who had never done it before. We started on the bat boss, wiped three times, and decided to give it one more go. Keep in mind we only had 15 people (only two tanks, and at least five pallies) who were poorly geared.

We got her down to next to nothing but everyone was dead. It was down to a mage (me), another mage and a druid. We thought we were toast since we were all completely out of mana, but we noticed that she was out as well. We had a shadow priest working her over with mana burn, and I guess it paid off. We finished her off with some of the weakest melee shots you've ever seen. It was very very cool.

How to fix the old instances {WoW}

Jan 23rd 2007 12:13PM I still get a ton of invites on my lowbies for ZF and Mara. Also, I get a surprising amount of tells from people wanting to quest in Scholo and Strat on my higher levels. I think that the five man instances will always get a lot of foot traffic considering the amount of quests for each.

The 40 man raid instances are dead in the water as far as I can tell, and I couldn't care less. Why would you want to group with 40 people when you can 10 man Karazhan with some close guildies for some awesome loot?

Going back to the old instances can be a blast though. The new specs make them a hell of a lot easier, even without hitting level 70. I three-manned strat with two other Tier 0/ZG geared 60's and we had a damn good time. It's possible that the old 40 man raids could be 20 or even 10-manned.

I do agree with the idea of having the outland quests tie in with the old instances. That would be a lot of fun.
