Drama Mamas: The case of the underage scammer {WoW}

Feb 26th 2011 11:13AM Sticks and Stones. Remember the saying? A good butt chewing is not going to hurt anyone. Using a little of the AltFu to demonstrates you are one of the "big kids" on this playground made an impression. The fact you haven't done so shows you ARE behaving like an adult- you did what you had to do to makle an impression but didn't go for punishment/retribution.

As far as guilting on yourself, don't. Harsh words are a part of the language for a reason- they are far better than harsh fists to teach the same lesson. The kid may as well learn the lesson and sense of right/wrong now rather than end up somewhere far worse........

I assume that anyone playing is at least a teenager and responsible for their actions, anything less is probably a violation of the TOS/ Ratings right? No, I feel no obligation to be nice to a kid who may be in WoW on his big brother's account where he should not be. A rough virtual skinning of the knees from a fall is far better than what could happen in reality if he tries to scam a bigger kid IRL...........if he learns a bit of a harsh leson then welcome to life where that happens.

Breakfast Topic: What class puts you at ease? {WoW}

Feb 26th 2011 10:19AM I do not necessarily look at classes. I usually DPS, so I need a good Tank and Healer. A good player in either role is what makes me happy. A tank that can hold aggro on his own (without me doing a ToTT to staple it to him), and a healer that throws a HoT at me once in a while (so I can use the CP for damage instead of Regen)are very appreciated.

I do not run heroics and PUGs are really problematic, but when I get there I do try and do my role as best as possible. Some groups want me to head hunt the healer and burn him down on my own. Others want me to DPS whatever the tank is working on. (sometimes after CC'ing the healer....).

The main thing I am looking for is a player who knows enough about his role and toon to say. "Hey I am not geared to heal thru damage on the tank while the mob is being healed" or "I am am still building my set, I will need help burning down the MOB since I am low on hit"........... Heck a tank with an obvious Tell macro: "Hunter DPS burn down the heal clothie, Sap the star, evryone else do the skull" is good enough as far as I am concerned.

Breakfast Topic: Do character naming schemes help you or confuse you? {WoW}

Feb 19th 2011 11:01AM Voted up for being a distant cousin. I had a bad random, altered it without paying attention and ended up with Porn for a start. Most of my toon names have a theme now, but they require thought to pick it up. That way I am relatively PG, if you are old enough to get it, you are old enough......... (Psylislicer......etc.)

Drama Mamas: Love is all around {WoW}

Feb 16th 2011 8:27AM Its Complicated....... Time to meet in real life and see if the chemistry is there. A lot of times it isn't, sometimes it is and you only find out if you change the setting. It is the same as meeting someone at the bookstore you both go to, in the bookstore setting everything is cool. Once you try and change the setting you find that you love Chinese Food, she is allergic to it..........

Such is life, go ahead and live it, misadventures are as important as adventures since they keep life interesting, that's why Its Complicated........

I am sure there are a bunch of noobs out there that want to get up to speed, but get tired of being "Bleeping Noob" 'ed to death..............

Breakfast Topic: What's been your best moment of cool? {WoW}

Feb 4th 2011 5:35AM Outstanding! The only downside is the loss of kill XP, but you can get that back on your way out with a bit of farming............

Breakfast Topic: What caused your first Cataclysm death? {WoW}

Feb 1st 2011 10:40AM I am an alliance nightelf. I got caught fishing in ogrimar, it took them 4 hours, but there it is.

The Lawbringer: A primer on private servers {WoW}

Jan 29th 2011 8:16AM The lawsuits are actually about 2 things. The first is keeping the weeds out of the garden, yes you are allways going to have weeds, but you keep them small and few, or they overwhem you veggies. Private servers are always going to be there, just keep them small and few and in subprime markets. The second is if they did not pursue their copyright claims- their work will end up being accepted as "public domain" like the smiley face. If you do not weed the garden, the weeds take over and you have to start from scratch.

Breakfast Topic: What do other players do that really annoys you? {WoW}

Jan 26th 2011 9:57AM I try and thank for buffs whenever I can, but if I do not see who did it- I usually do not- I can't thank them now can I? I do not have my combat log up, I shut it down for resource reasons, so I do not see who cast a spell on me.......

I will sometimes look around for a caster that is coming out of cast animation and /Wave if I spot them, otherwise........

Breakfast Topic: What do other players do that really annoys you? {WoW}

Jan 26th 2011 9:28AM I have frequently killed and left mobs lying for me to loot and skin after I got all the ones within easy missile reach. I recently had a noob taping all the mobs within my reach and moving on to steal the skinning and loot........

There is more than 1 use for Tricks of the Trade..........
