May 31st 2011 11:04PM As always, blizzard releases something for real world money and the only thing people can say is "blizzard should have made charitable contributions."
In fact, the first two pages of replies are just the same stale arguments we see EVERY time.
If you want one, buy one. If you would only buy one if it were charitable, then don't. It shouldn't stir up dozens of comments about the respective altruism of blizzard customers. And in the end, that's what you are, so support it if you want, but this horse has been beaten already.
On the main topic, this thing looks sweet, and I've got my castrandom mount macro ready.
May 9th 2011 1:28PM I have a question about the Gurubashi arena and how it relates to phasing of the zul dungeon questlines.
Last night I tried to join a guildie to help him get Gurubashi master, but I was phased out. Upon researching a bit on the forums I found that the Gurubashi area was phased and would remain so even after completing the chain. Is blizzard planning on Changing this? Or is this a bug? I think it's extremely strange that blizz devs would lock people out of a quest/achievement without some sort of warning.
Apr 22nd 2011 10:48AM Tried this out yesterday. Was on my main (the guildmaster) and logged onto mobile using my raiding alt. Got a few funny looks from people seeing me talking to myself in gchat. Blizz customer service responded to my ticket in ten minutes (record time) and we chatted about the demotion.
Seems like only the toon that logs into mobile gets demoted. Anyone get multiple toons demoted from a single toon logging in?

"How do you know she's wasting time specifically? What evidence do you have to support that assertion? Perhaps she's a slow learner or someone with poor reflexes."
If the person is a slow learner, and they're not reviewing strategy, refusing to enchant gear, and refusing to communicate in an efficient manner, then she is absolutely wasting the time of all the people who are expecting her to contribute to the collective effort of raiding. Being a slow learner with poor reflexes is all the more reason for this player to compensate for their difficulties. There was a Fifteen Minutes of Fame previously about a paraplegic raider. Everyone has shortcomings, but the true test is whether the player puts forward the effort to compensate for them.
"And no, it's not $359.76 per raid...rather $14.99 per individual. Unless the guild is covering everyone's monthly sub....then we all play this game volunteerly. And each one of us should respect that."
If 25 people get together with a common goal, and one person is not contributing fairly, then the time spent together is a waste of the other 24 peoples time and energy. Perhaps the person not contributing should respect the other 24's efforts.
And as much as you can attribute it to "it's just a game," it's still a team game, and stops being fun with a situation like this.
I'm not here to try and argue that everyone should join a hardcore raiding guild, or be an elitist jerk. I'm just stating that if someone wants to raid, but has trouble with attaining certain objectives (e.g. Raid Awareness, Communication, Boss Strategy), then they should put the effort forward to compensate. If they don't, it makes it less fun for EVERYONE involved.

A wise person once said "sure, you pay 14.99 a month to play how you want, but the rest of the raids $359.76 would like to have words with you."
We all play to have fun, but it's never fun to be part of a group where someone isn't pulling their weight and expects to reap the rewards of other peoples hard work.
I am the guild leader of a small social raiding guild. We are friends who like to kill bosses. We are not 'hardcore' by any means, but a person who wastes your time and efforts is not much of a friend.
On topic, if this is a raiding guild, then she is rightfully benched for wasting the teams time. If it's a social raiding guild, then she's being a bad friend.
