Interesting comment, but I think the definition of maturity is knowing that, at age 16, you shouldn't go into a bar and order alcohol!
Sep 1st 2010 8:26PM Hmmm, perhaps we're using the wrong measure on this new expansion. I'd rather ask "How long will this keep me entertained?"
Five new long levels, five mans, raids, flying around Azeroth for hours on end reveling in the new flight ability, leveling at least 2 new characters for both horde and alliance to check out the old world changes, relearning how to play all my alts, collecting all the new mounts and pets, a new profession... Oh my, I'm tired just thinking about it all!
Aug 30th 2010 9:39PM When I start on a new server, I create a DK toon and send it out to farm the easy pets. The raptors and the black tabby sell well for a start up fund.
Aug 30th 2010 9:32PM More please! More players with this attitude!!!
Aug 22nd 2010 9:33PM Internet memes are hard to kill, resistant to all known drugs and...
distracted by Cataclysm.

I'm allergic to eggs so I take'm straight from the fridge to the rubbish bin.
Aug 17th 2010 1:12AM I think I got it now Hob.
You dislike the guild experience so much you see the Dark Phoenix as a bribe to make people suffer the guild system. Like, guilds are such nasty places to be, players need incentive.
I like the guild experience, I like people. I've chosen my guild because it contains people I like. I don't need a mount as an incentive to stay. I'm looking forward to participating in the great guild grind for these rewards.
Aug 14th 2010 9:59PM Dear Hob.
I've tried to read your comment in a favourable light but it still comes across as sour grapes. Perhaps it's your implication that a toon just needs to put up with a guild to gain access to the mount whereas other mounts require grinding. This is incorrect. First the guild must band together to aquire the necessary guild rank then the toon must raise their personal reputation to exalted. Plenty of other grinds require other people to complete (Heroic mode mounts, I'm looking at you!)
The Dark Phoenix is a reward for the guild grind. If this grind doesn't appeal, you don't have to participate. Or, if you really want it without the bother of other people, create your own private guild and start grinding.
Aug 14th 2010 9:08PM Perhaps we're all cheering this judgement because Alyson Reeves is a criminal. She is stealing the hard work of others and using it for her own gain. You and I don't feel the pain of this criminal act because we're so far removed from the damage.
Imagine Alyson Reeves tapped into your internet account and used your connection to run her server. This action only degrades your service by 25% so you can still do everything you used to do just slower. She's not really hurting anyone is she? Well she's not hurting me but you might feel different. It's a better society if all of us punish Alyson Reeves for hurting you rather than waiting till she hurts us. Just because Alyson Reeves is hurting a corporation doesn't mean we should cheer her on for her criminal activities.
It's nice to think that a piece of software isn't real property to be stolen but if it had been my work that went into it I'd be feeling violated by Alyson Reeves' actions.
