Feb 24th 2011 7:26PM They are our best customers!
They make their "profit" when you buy it off the AH, but then you just go and vendor it for more profit.
Because it sold, they will keep posting them, and we'll just keep making money. I've seen a few of these people that never realize exactly what they are doing...
Feb 11th 2011 8:43PM Perhaps you should look at logs of the fight and figure out what the problem is? Perhaps the group as a whole isn't putting out enough dps (possible gear issue?), or is it that during a specific phase the damage jumps too high because of people standing in fire?
If you're constantly slamming into a boss with no progress made, there's a bigger problem at the core other than simply "we just don't know the fight well enough yet".
Feb 7th 2011 6:37PM Now that is pretty epic. Seems to me like those days are long gone *sigh*
Jan 26th 2011 5:55PM Who ever said that you would only get a listing of text messages to work with and that was all?
What if there was a quest in-game which dynamically changed with the text message list, offering you a random message from it, and that quest was to determine the location that person was at, and then go to X mob and report that location, which was then sent to the local search and rescue workers? By completing the task successfully, you'd be rewarded in-game with something after the location was verified.
It'd be similar to the daily quests we have currently, where they are somewhat random (albeit from a small pool of options), and are verifiable (JC quests to actually cut specific gems while you have the quest, not just buy them off AH or hoard a bunch).
If players report inaccurate information, they would not receive the reward in-game, and therefore, would waste their time. People nowadays in WoW do not go on quests they know with 100% certainty they will fail, right? (such as taking on that level ?? elite mob on your level 1 mage)
In essence, those "immature trade trolls" still do quests to level up, they still work with others to run dungeons to get the loot. They may troll trade chat when they are bored because it gets a rise out of people, but at the end of the day, they will work beside you to knock down some raid bosses.
Jan 26th 2011 5:21PM The fact that she's shown results already with programs she's created seems to me that it's not just "optimism for optimism's sake".
My jaw hits the floor every time I see one of these videos from Ted.com. This "outside of the box" thinking is what has driven the human species for so many years. The fact that Galileo believed that our solar system revolved around the sun, and not the Earth, was met by extreme criticism, but he was correct.
So while there will always be the pessimists and those who search only for answers which reside within their narrow confines of thought, there will also be those people, like Galileo, or now you could even say Jane McGonigal, who search for answers where the general populace haven't cared to look.
I'll definitely be looking forward to seeing how any of this work turns out!
Jan 25th 2011 9:09AM Didn't they use a Bear Tank not a Prot Pally? I'm pretty sure that in the video, it's a bear tanking and that Paragon generally uses the Bear to tank more often...
Jan 23rd 2011 2:00PM Same thing for me, except it was for the Green Wind Riders in Org... they really are green!
Jan 16th 2011 12:32PM Ret is dead... get over it.
But seriously, visit this link:
to find out why all of these columns have been a bit delayed lately.
Jan 16th 2011 12:30PM Yes, there was a random generator. What happened to it, I'm not aware, but I'm sure some one is privy to that info here.
