Aug 3rd 2010 3:16PM I sympathise with your advent into tanking but I would have to ask why go the random/PUG route rather than get into a guild willing to help you learn? Don't get me wrong, there are some great PUG runs and cool people willing to help but if you want to really learn, guilds are really the best way to go. It will probably cure your nervous tick while allowing you to not have to 'lead' in that sense but rather listen. Just because the tank is leading doesn't make them the leader.
May 28th 2010 4:10PM Easily fixed, bring back the Scourge Plague as there was plenty of uproar after the first week. I recall when both sides were too busy keeping themselves alive too worry about ganking and camping their opposing faction. Maybe a new enemy needs to come alive to keep everyone occupied.
Or get real creative and store characters in a bank account to put on servers upon login thus allowing us to easily move characters from side to side to counter the imbalances. But then again, for every fix there will come a new fix as players get more ingenuis through working within the game mechanics/rules.

May 20th 2010 1:42PM My journey began long ago but has yet to end. I've remained on while trying everything from HG:L to GW to AoC to Bloodymare to Atlantica to WAR to Aion and virtually everything in between. I've left the game idle but never stopped altogether as it is too much fun to simply walk away from. Some call it too easy, some complain of the rampant disrespect in trade chat, or the disturbing trends of PUGs, or some see the difficulty of not being geared for raids, or any number of things that show how diverse and multifaceted the people are who play. In essence, the diversity of players keeps me around as much as the game itself. Like life, it's just too much fun watching how it's become so mainstream that even law schools take on causes therein. And for me, it's the games ability to transcend mere pixels and code that keeps me around for a journey that I don't see ending anytime soon.
