Oct 29th 2007 12:01AM Dear Fred,
I really do enjoy how you default to ERP to make the RP world sound both disgusting and totally unethical. While yes there seems to be several guilds who do entertain the thought, and seem to derive pleasure from what many would consider freak fetishes, from my experience I've found RP guilds to be rather mature (if not just a little imitative in the descriptions) and organized. I myself have joined on occasion a RP guild, even though I did not RP I enjoyed hearing the conversations and story developement that many of the people came up with. I can see the draw to Roleplaying, the escapism, the ability to be someone else besides the everyday office worker (sorry, stereotype :-( ), to be important!
However, while your wonderful words about Super Mario Brothers as an example were somewhat funny, they weren't accurate to pinpoint the exact way the roleplayers enjoy their time in game. A much better example would be to have them talk to other NPCs with their voice and have a friend beside them talk back, or completely remove the Super Mario game completely (there really isn't much interactivity to the game, it's mostly one path goal based, where as World of Warcraft is whatever the user wants to do with his character and time). Even my crummy example wasn't very good to depict the pleasure people get out of RPing (ERPing or otherwise, hopefully the latter). While your arguements are rather crude and unimaginative (mine weren't much better, I do understand that), you need to realise that there are different ways to play this game, there are different ways to Role Play, and not everyone who Role Plays loves to type in how much they enjoy a good spanking. I believe the game should be played how you want like to play it, and if you find a few friends who enjoy your way of playing, all the better!
Then again this is really a multiresponse, I started with your remark and spread from there. Sorry for singling you out from the crowd, Fred :-(

I guess the person would also be useless in the raid enviorment as well :-/ "OMG, we just wiped once, gotta call it a night"
Oct 28th 2007 4:54PM Personally I love going against any bracket of twinks with my low level characters, all of which are in the middle of the brackets (except for 2 :-/) I routinely clean through the BG just because the twinks don't know anything about how to play their twinked class. I find it incredibly difficult AND fun to destroy a twinked rogue or warrior with a level 25 paladin or a level 23 mage. Of course when someone kills you it sucks. Usually, however, the match is decided by the teamwork of the two sides, not the twinks. (btw, I have 5 horde characters and 3 alliance all below level 40 - altaholic - and suprisingly it seems that the alliance wins now more then the horde, in the past 4 or 5 days we've been creamed by low level (25-28) groups with almost INSANE coordination, and I have to say I think it's wonderful cause the people who hate losing leave and the people who enjoy just being in a competitive game stay :-D. I guess my point is that if you just join up in low level BG's do it because you like the competition between the teams and the competition between the groups, not because you want a few marks for staying at the tunnel entrance or crowd camping the farm. :-)
Oct 26th 2007 11:58PM Aparently the best leveling time recorded (1-60, not 1-70, or at least, that I know of) is 4 days /played and several hours made from Jonas :-/. He even made a leveling guide off of it...This is pre-TBC (obviously).

Aug 28th 2007 12:01AM Definatly druids, don't know what it is but I just don't like either of the places you start in, or how the races look that can be druids. >_< I could be to picky for my own good, but if I'm going to be watching it for 10-15 days + of /played time I definatly want something I like to watch over class functionality =/.
