Jul 13th 2010 12:05PM So nice to have some fresh non-rap/pop style music machinima.
Jul 8th 2010 10:02PM 5g says this becomes "this video has been removed due to a complaint by Blizzard" by Monday morning.
Jul 8th 2010 9:55PM Aye and you should go read 1984 by George Orwell. (no reason not to listen to paranoid, Sabbath are damned good)
Seriously though, I see no reason why they couldn't just give the option of only using first names, people wouldn't be quite so against them if blizz gave us the choice, forcing it on us if we wish to continue playing/posting just seems to be the exact kind of thing that people would naturally balk at. The fact that it seems at the moment the blizz team can't program their way out of a wet paper bag is a whole different topic,
The whole "your email is your username" idea is flawed, and as an officer of a large guild hacks because of this have more than doubled since it happened I have even had gm's say that they noticed the number of hacks rise significantly while retrieving stolen guild bank stuff back, real ID just seems like a bad idea extrapolated and built upon, although I can see fan based real ID-free forums getting a massive boost out of this.
Jul 8th 2010 8:15PM See, I was quite worried about these new changes, but after a few minutes thought, and reading this article I am starting to warm to it. One of the things that made me feel better about these changes is this:
I recently decided to level a warlock up to be my 3rd 80. Now while levelling, there was a talent which (affliction spec) gave my warlock an overall 5% boost to shadow damage now, that is 5 points gone to max out those talents, that was a small unnoticeable change when levelling, 1% per level, but in cataclysm I see putting one point in and getting the same change, a more noticeable, immediate 5% boost to damage.
This is just an example I came up with, but if this is the route they are going, and it sounds like they are, then I am happy with this change.
Jun 24th 2010 8:24PM Willing to bet "level 80" is in top 10, nothing quite like that feeling when you first ding the level cap on your first character ; even afterwards on your alts it's still a memorable moment each and every time. ^_^
Jun 24th 2010 9:30AM Any idea when it's gonna drop for EU servers, I haven't gotten any new shiny awesomeness yet =(
May 24th 2010 7:32PM I love my hunter, he was a lvl 19 pvp demi-twink (not best in slot for everything, but good enough to survive against real twinks) that I loved playing BGs on, sadly I kinda lost interest when they made twinking non-viable (three hour wait times for a BG? No thanks).
I went back to him the other day just because I was tempted to level him next, I got into a RFC pug, we wiped three mobs in because the healer and tank were just ******* useless, the group fell apart and I was stuck there in RFC... So I solod it. At level 19. And my love for hunters was rekindled. I am very determined to get into extreme soloing asap, it's a lot of fun. (I also love boosting my friends and guildies level 8s through RFC to their amazement)
May 17th 2010 10:14AM My vote would have to be for hunters to be honest, I mean in wow it takes dozens of arrows, some magically enhanced, some poisoned, some exploding, not to mention all the traps instantly turning your feet into ice blocks, then torching you. Not to mention the massive vicious animal disembowelling you just as gruesomely as any feral druid.
In pvp I hate it most when you get spider webbed and know there is nothing you can do for the next 3 seconds or so to los away from the dozens of sharp pointy arrows that are trying to thud into your skull at over 90 mph.
Apr 6th 2010 12:47AM I definitely agree with what you say, I do tend to be quite formal when addressing personal issues in a guild, and also had this in mind more as a mail than a /w.
I like to keep messages that deal with this type of thing (guild telling offs and warnings etc, not romance) more formalized and in the shape of mails because you can take time to think out what you want to say, it looks marginally more official (like sending letters to large companies instead of emails often gets a better response) & it lets them take longer to think about it and reply in their own time, which I find often elicits a better thought out and more reasonable response.
What you suggest would 100% work better as a quick /w to each of the people involved.
But that's just my leadership style and what I have learnt from trial and error in the guilds I have been in.
