Breakfast Topic: Do you like PvP? {WoW}

Apr 3rd 2012 11:12AM I fall very much into the "not" category. I dislike the "vP" part of PvP with a passion. I am not, by nature, a competitive person.

I'm no good at it, it's not fun (for me), and it takes precious time I don't have (I could badly at pvp and get berated a lot, or I can keep my head above water with PvE, but not both). In short, carebear for life, for reals.

Breakfast Topic: What are you just not that excited about in Mists? {WoW}

Mar 28th 2012 1:31PM my perspective may be a little cynical right now. I just got my newbie healer to 85, but am stuck in the beginning cata heroic grind . And let me tell you, it SUUUUUCKS. I can't wait to get past it to LFR and End Time.

Mar 28th 2012 12:36PM Endgame: Cata endgame was crushingly unfriendly, I'm kinda burnt on the whole idea of "play for fun until endgame, then you get punished".

Mar 23rd 2012 12:44PM Jaq: because it's marketing. And letting "random anyone" (a.k.a. not media, not fansites, just random users) in before AP holders is Bad Marketing. It sends the wrong message, and presents the wrong image. And I'm betting AP holders are, on average, some of the more dedicated, and vocal players.

Blizzard is TOTALY within their rights to do what they're doing, I'm not questioning that at all. STaggered waves is probably the best way to handle it, from a technological and testing P.O.V. But from a marketing/end-user perspective? This is very very messy.

Mar 23rd 2012 12:40PM Brett: Yes, they did. In later posts and revisions, not in the initial offer. I'm not arguing the validity of what they did, just the way they did. It wasn't....cleanly done. Coulda been better.
