Recent Comments: bad is it going to be? {WoW}

Dec 4th 2006 8:50PM Myself, I like to be a bit optimistic and hope to be playing 2.0 as soon as I get home from work because I want to grind out the PvP epic set by the time BC is released. I don't think there should be too many problems on my server as the population is pretty much 50/50 US ppl and Aus/Oceanic ppl so the pressure may be alleviated a bit (or maybe that's just me being optimistic again? meh!)

Goodbye DHKs, Hello big-time World PVP {WoW}

Dec 3rd 2006 8:21PM quoting 18: "In my perfect game, I'd be on a completely PVP disabled server, where BGs were the only way to flag up at all."

In my opinion (which may not count for much) this would be terrible and I would never join a server like this.

If you want something like that with no PvP except in BGs play DAOC or something, where you don't even share the environment with opposing factions!

Nothing breaks up a boring quest grind or reputation grind (Timbermaw anybody?) like having some fool gank you while fighting a mob and still kicking their arse!

If you get yours handed to you, no drama, come back, hide and eat/drink/buff and go back to face them again! this type of world PvP, whilst occasionally annoying, makes you a better PvP player.

Anybody can stand back and aimed/mulit-shot, run into a group of opposition and tag them before blinking away, aoe fear dot, dot and dot, rinse repeat etc, but even par 1v1 is where it's at (and I don't mean duels.)

World PvP is here to stay and Dishonourable kills just impede this, I've had people kill my NPCs incessantly before, so I just moved on or came back with and equal sized group and had some PvP fun.

As for the "you're on a PvP server, deal with it" style argument, I think that is a valid point and it spices the game up a bit.
When I was leveling and I saw a higher lvl char it was game over, if you beat them, shame on them, otherwise, no biggy. So do I do this to other lowbies? hell yes I do! Not if they're on an escort quest or something, but if they're just grinding, sure why not?

Sorry for such a long drawn out post, gotta fill my work day somehow!

PTRs online... well, sorta. {WoW}

Nov 30th 2006 6:02PM I dunno if this helps but I just forwarded my ports for the Bliz downloader through my router and downloaded the whole thing in 30mins, maybe give that a burl?

Burning Crusade FAQ update {WoW}

Nov 22nd 2006 9:57PM i would like to see a priest mind control illidan, just for kicks, or maybe have him as a tameable hunter pet, on second thoughts no, then he'd be everywhere like a winterspring cat (even though I have one on my hunter myself.)
On a serious note, a new world event would be rockin, I love the lore surrounding the whole Warcraft series which works so well, even combined with subtle modern day humour and innuendo.
Maybe as part of this 'world event' we could have certain rewards for people based on the length of account activity? Please Bliz, support your loyal WoW players, it's just a coincidence that I've had my account since release ;P

Breakfast Topic: Best Change In WoW {WoW}

Nov 22nd 2006 6:00PM I would have to say that Blizz have actually been pretty open to change compared to most MMOs and that they've done a good job of it, the BGs, cross-realm BGs, Oceanic realms, constant new high-end content, introduction of Silithus, rep rewards, and the list goes on. My favourite though would have to be the UI and changes, how they've incorporated all the good solid addons made by others into the actual game itself. Of these my favourite is probably 'Scrolling combat text' now if only they would add Ctraid and vent or something similar as standard :P

Clueless man plays WoW, writes about it for the media {WoW}

Nov 16th 2006 5:50PM Hey, everybody needs some humour sometimes and this made me laugh so hard it hurts, struggling through a friday at work, some nut has written and article on WoW about a warrior with a voidwalker, comedy gold.
Seriously though, coming from a background in journalism I see this as extremely irresponsible reporting.
General journalists shouldn't report on items of a hobbiest nature because there is always going to be people, (at least seven million of them,) who know more about the subject at hand.
Well, it was good for a laugh at least; now I'm going to go change my pants! cheers all

Some realms skipping weekly maintenance [Update] {WoW}

Nov 14th 2006 12:18AM or if you were an aussie and the server went down at 10pm local meaning that you culdn't raid or do much on a tuesday night

WoW Moviewatch: Hogger Goes to Gurubashi {WoW}

Nov 5th 2006 5:59PM i don't think he'd come with you 'cause you'd have to zone out and in again so he'd get lost when that happened.

Breakfast Topic: Your First Class {WoW}

Oct 29th 2006 4:31PM I started on a pally, got stuck on a quest at lvl 19, realised that i couldn't actually kill anything in less than 20 minutes, liked the idea of shapeshifting so i rolled a feral druid, hit lvl 20 and got cat form, the rest is history! Now resto specced, raiding heavily and hanging out for TBC so i can go back to my feral ways (at least for 10 lvls, will probably spec a feral resto hybrid 0,40,21.)

Breakfast Topic: Change of Plans? {WoW}

Oct 25th 2006 7:33PM Battlefield 2142 "4 teh win!" I can't be stuffed raiding and grinding factions that won't be effected in the xpac so i'm gonna play this, looks wicked, everybody says it is wicked, and I have a new PC so i can turn all the pretty things up!
