The Lawbringer: Fighting the gold fight -- the world as it is {WoW}

Mar 11th 2011 11:14PM Gold buying is the only instant, unilateral, no questions asked /gkick in our guild.

Breakfast Topic: Are you happy with the new races? {WoW}

Mar 6th 2011 8:25PM Well said. Also, to the repeated comments about how female Worgen were "rushed": absolute bullshit. Just how short is the collective memory, here? Recall how we all waited anxiously for news of the next female Worgen design revision and screenshots? Female Worgen were probably the biggest character design challenge ever faced by Blizzard. I wouldn't be surprised if they're not thrilled with it and feel it's a compromise. But they worked like hell on it and it wasn't rushed.

To me, female Worgen design was just wrong-headed from the beginning: forget about any ideas of dog-sexiness and just make 'em nasty, vicious fighting bitches.

AND FOR LIGHT'S SAKE STOP THE SNUFFALUPAGROSS-NESS. THEY'RE WOLVES, NOT PIGS DROWNING IN MUD. Ten Worgen in the auction house sounds like a pig orgy. We shouldn't have to download workarounds, Blizzard should just FIX IT.

Breakfast Topic: Are you happy with the new races? {WoW}

Mar 6th 2011 7:54PM No, it doesn't logically follow, because all you said was: "Still no Plainsrunning." The connections were in your head, but not in your words, and we're not mindreaders. :)

Breakfast Topic: What feature does WoW need most? {WoW}

Dec 23rd 2010 11:28AM I would love to see character customization with sliders for perfect (or even ridiculous) tweaking.

Not everyone playing a female toon wants giant titties.

Characters could be skinny or fat as desired.

I'd like to adjust beard and hair length (where are the long wizard beards? Come on!).

Make a character a little taller or shorter.

Have a choice for eye color separately from facial features.

Would love for some choice in voices too. It's kinda weird that everyone has the same laugh.

Officers' Quarters: Surviving as a small guild {WoW}

I hate Ayn Rand. And the fact that you brought her up in this context and had your comment upvoted shows that neither you nor your supporters know jack about Ayn Rand or her piece of shit "philosophy."

More work (growing a larger guild) means more rewards. Or in this case, faster rewards. If you don't want to do the work, then how on earth is it "fair" (or even sane) to expect the same rewards?

Officers' Quarters: Surviving as a small guild {WoW}

Dec 23rd 2010 10:37AM Fair means everyone has an equal chance. And everyone DOES have an equal chance to get guild perks. Fair doesn't mean that people who do less work get the same rewards as the people who do more work (in other words, all the work that goes into growing and managing a larger guild).

Growing and maintaining a large guild is not a walk in the park. The effort involved should be rewarded proportionately.

12 Days of Winter Veil Giveaway Day 2: Razer Nostromo gaming keypad {WoW}

Dec 23rd 2010 10:30AM This h'yar's mah winning comment. The rest of you can just stop now.

The Queue: Dextered {WoW}

Dec 21st 2010 12:31PM The option to turn off guild ranks from showing only works for what YOU see. Everybody else in the game still sees it. It's pretty stupid that the guild leader's title says "Recruit of..."

Officers' Quarters: Surviving as a small guild {WoW}

Dec 21st 2010 1:37AM Player achievements do not earn experience (for a very good reason). To be consistent with what they already know makes for better game play overall, Blizzard had to kill guild achievement experience. They never should have let it out the door in the first place. It never should have seen the virtual light of day.

In every other aspect of both real and virtual life, the small fry do not and should not have the same advantages as the big fish. If you are not willing to grow your guild to the size required to get those perks, then you don't deserve to get them. That IS fair. It is extraordinarily fair. You can dislike it and even downvote my comment (which has nothing to do with your dislike) all you like, but it is fair.

The advantages of being in a small guild, if you decide that's what you want to do, are not related to these guild perks. That seems to be the gist of everyone's comments regarding why they love their small guild. They're not trying to compete with large guilds, they're trying to be the best guild they can be, doing what they love in the game. And the advantages of small guilds have are not possible in large guilds due to the cliques, the chaos, and the management headaches.

Decide what you want for your guild and make it happen. If that means doing the work necessary to grow a large guild (and the the perks a bit faster) then do that. If it means enjoying a completely different set of perks that aren't awarded by the game itself, then... do that. Celebrate your advantages.

I'm not sure where this attitude of entitlement comes from, but in every other aspect of both real and virtual life, the small fry do not and should not have the same advantages as the big fish.

I find it kind of appalling that you think you should have the same perks for your guild as I have for mine without doing all the work I did to grow mine to 200+ members who aren't vile douchebags.

Decide what you want for your guild and make it happen. When you get what you want, be happy with it. Celebrate your advantages.
