You sound like my wife... =)

Patch 4.1 PTR notes updated for Feb. 28 {WoW}

Mar 1st 2011 12:12PM Noooooo, bring back the charge-based model of Inner Fire. Really. Where you had to manage refreshing it.

(I kid, of course.)

How far have you progressed in Cataclysm? {WoW}

Feb 25th 2011 3:18PM Where's the option for "Level 85, but not doing anything"?

Patch 4.1 PTR: Patch notes {WoW}

Feb 24th 2011 11:24AM Age of Conan launches - Blizzard reveals the Death Knight.

Warhammer launches - Blizzard cranks up the 3.0 PTR.

Rift "head start" launches - Blizzard announces 4.1 content rehash (where's the NEW raids???).

I'm sensing a pattern here.......

The Lawbringer: A world without remedy {WoW}

Feb 18th 2011 1:26PM As long as you have a segment of the population willing to leak/steal/pirate copyrighted material, strong measures must be taken, annoying as they are. Rationalize it all you want, but theft is theft, lipstick on the pig be damned - and the developers (or artists) are well within their rights to take whatever means necessary to safeguard their creations.

Reviewing the Razer Naga Epic mouse: 12 buttons you never knew you wanted {WoW}

Feb 18th 2011 9:21AM Obvious troll is obvious... and successful.

Gold Capped: The first player to have a new trade skill {WoW}

Feb 17th 2011 9:01PM You'd be surprised how many OCD min/maxers are out there...

Raid composition and the role gap {WoW}

Feb 17th 2011 8:48PM "Melee dps is the most common type of wow player out there, so you are going to be in competition with a lot of like-minded players."

By what measure??? Given that there are six melee-capable classes and six-ranged capable classes (and a well-known almost "disdain" for melee in raids right now), I'm inclined to disagree without some class/spec population data.

(I generally don't play DPS, so personally, I just /shrug)

Dungeon finder, vote kicking hotfixes on the way {WoW}

Feb 17th 2011 12:29PM I fear this really didn't fix anything - only changed the way you play "the game" (that is, gaming the LFD tool), and the new version doesn't allow a pure DPS class to play:

[2] Tank- or heal-capable class: SELLING HC INSTA-QUEUES 50G PST!
[Well-heeled tank-capable DPSer] whispers: lol they hotfixed that u n00b
To [Well-heeled tank-capable DPSer]: Not if YOU queue as the tank or healer. I queue and leave as a DPS, thereby avoiding the "mass ejection" mechanism which only kicks in when tank or healer drops. When LFD prompts for your role to replace, THEN you pick DPS - you still win.
[Well-heeled tank-capable DPSer] whispers: wow ur smart, let's go!

The step they forgot: whatever role you initially queue as, LOCK IN THE FIRST ROLE ASSIGNMENT on subsequent replacement prompts.

Thanks, I'll be here all week...
