Patch 4.2 PTR patch notes update for June 13 {WoW}

Jun 14th 2011 10:42AM And as long as you have an antivirus, firewall and malware remover you will be fine

Good free products:
Microsoft Security Essentials (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/security_essentials/default.aspx)
MalwareBytes (http://www.malwarebytes.org/)

And of course the built in Win 7 firewall (there are free, decent ones but so far I haven't had problems with the default one)

Patch 4.2 PTR patch notes update for June 13 {WoW}

Jun 14th 2011 10:39AM This basically means if you had to manually forward your ports in your router to fix download speed and/or latency you will no longer have to to that, the launcher will take care of all the work for you. UPnP means "Universal Plug N Play"

Taken from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_Plug_and_Play :

"The concept of UPnP is an extension of plug-and-play, a technology for dynamically attaching devices directly to a computer, although UPnP is not directly related to the earlier plug-and-play technology. UPnP devices are "plug-and-play" in that when connected to a network they automatically establish working configurations with other devices."

Drama Mamas: Much ado about funsuckers {WoW}

May 13th 2011 4:19PM Ok that is a very valid point. If I could fit the whole names into the macro without breaking the 255 character limit, it would definitely be more efficient. I would have no problem answering peoples questions should they be unaware what the abbreviations stand for.

May 13th 2011 3:45PM I failed at replying to my own comment, check out my response here http://wow.joystiq.com/2011/05/13/drama-mamas-much-ado-about-funsuckers-friday/comments/34037843/

I never said I didn't make mistakes, but purposely not following sound instructions that will more often then not result in victory is not an accidental mistake. I'm not being elitist or egotistical by any means.

May 13th 2011 3:42PM This was supposed to be a reply to my response on the first page.

Drama Mamas: Much ado about funsuckers {WoW}

May 13th 2011 3:41PM That was mostly directed at people who refuse to follow simple instructions. Yes there will be new players, but even new players can follow directions. Especially simple ones. Take EoTS for example, I use a macro that explains that Group 1 should take this tower, group 2 should go after another and group 3 should go after another. Only after we have 2 (3 is better) towers should we go for the flag and only cap the flag if we control mid.
This is the macro that I use.
/bg Each group listed please take and hold the following:
/bg Group 1: Push FR
/bg Group 2: MT
/bg Group 3: DR
/bg CALL OUT INCOMINGS QUICKLY PLEASE!
/bg REMEMBER to ONLY fight on the towers, ignore flag til 3 towers held!

It's pretty simple to understand, but more often then not 1/2 the people will rush to the flag and the other half will capture 2 towers and then leave them defenseless.

Even being new, there really is no excuse for not being able to follow a simple guideline (unless you are illiterate), but those people really aren't who I was referring to.
