Aug 24th 2007 5:00PM Being new to this whole fantasy genre, can someone please explain the difference between "gothic" and "high" fantasy?
My art history classes aren't much help in this case.

Dec 6th 2006 1:46AM With the new LFG interface, how are we now supposed to organize impromptu PUG raids on things like enemy towns, racial leaders, etc., other than posting in the local general chat? There's no option for that kind of thing in the new LFG system, only "official" raid targets are listed. There seems to be no global chat that I'm aware of. It seems like the game just lost a great deal of its spontaneity because of this.

Oh really? No, I think maybe you should spell it out here, very explicitly ... we're all adults, we can handle it.
Some messed-up priorities here, methinks. I doubt the failure to level to 60 has *anything* to do with a person's RL character. Let me explain what should be obvious: Time spent playing WoW = time that, while enjoyable, contributes little-to-nothing to the RL world. Maybe some people are too busy trying to contribute something positive to the actual environment to get sucked all-encompassingly into a virtual one?
As these virtual games / communities become more and more engrossing, more and more people seem to be mixing the two realms in their own minds. News flash: there's a big difference between WoW life and real life. Very little about this game is consequential to the real world, no matter how high-leveled, twinked-out, and fancy your character might be.
Same sentiments apply to comment #1 about so-called laziness. WoW is what I do when I'm feeling lazy, not the other way around.
Hey, live your life how you want to. For some people, the real world is a very unfriendly place and WoW might be just the sanctuary they need. It serves me well when I need a break from reality. But PLEASE don't go criticizing people for failing to live up to your personal standards of what constitutes "achievement" in a virtual, online context. It makes you seem very out of touch with "RL".
