Behind the scenes with a Blizzard forums MVP "green" {WoW}

Feb 9th 2012 2:44PM I certainly remember School of Hard Knocks during Children's Week. During Eye of the Storm, I had allies standing around waiting for me to die so they could cap the flag instead of helping me. They were calling dibs on the flag in chat!

When I was in that situation, I didn't go griefing the flag carrier, I backed them up.

Patch 4.3 hotfixes for Feb. 7, 2012 {WoW}

Feb 8th 2012 11:17AM I've had trouble with RH on the three toons I did Elder with, but it's not the Wyvern Trainer that gives me trouble, but the guards at the main gate; though the first time I did it, someone else had already set the trainer off and all the wyverns were flying around in a tizzy. The same with Xroads, there are guards in the area who snipe at me without fail when I go for the Elder. I was surprised how easy Vendetta Point seemed to be as I never aggroed anything there.

On the EK side of things, I think I got aggro twice in Brill, and all three times at the Sepulcher.

Patch 4.3 hotfixes for Feb. 7, 2012 {WoW}

Feb 7th 2012 10:45PM Ran DS an hour ago and noticed the trash phase ended faster.

Know Your Lore: Scholomance revisited {WoW}

Jan 30th 2012 3:31AM Speaking of Koltira, what have the Knights of the Ebon Blade been doing lately? Certainly they can't be pleased that the Cult of the Damned is still in operation. And do they know what Sylvanas is doing with Koltira?

The OverAchiever: The worst (maybe) holiday achievements {WoW}

Jan 27th 2012 7:34AM @Tauren Fan, I had the same issue, with some of my toons only finding those combinations at the DMF. I was shocked at how hard Draenei Priests were to find as well... my MAIN is a Draenei Priest.

The Queue: Is something wrong with the Alliance? {WoW}

Jan 26th 2012 1:32PM Most fiction has a set length, and the ebb and flow occurs within that timeframe. In a book or a movie, you know there is a fixed end, and if the beginning has the bad guys winning, the good guys can come back in the end, and you get a satisfying experience. Sometimes you get a sequel hook where the bad guys win overall, but the good guys have shown they're not down and will win it in the next episode/sequel. If a story has nothing but lulls, then it becomes depressing; oh sure you might make it work from an artistic standpoint, but most viewers expect some high points in there somewhere.

How did Empire Strikes Back end? With the Empire winning? No, it ended with Luke getting a new hand, the Rebel's attack fleet readying to fight back, and Lando and Chewie heading off to rescue Han. Yes, the heroes got it bad, but fans were left thinking "Jedi will make it better", moviegoers wanted the next movie to come out so they could see how it ended.

Cataclysm seems to have left the Alliance in a permanent lull, with no hopespot that will make Alliance players look to the future thinking "Pandaria will be better"; instead we hear about Theramore and think "here we go again".

The Cataclysm expansion should've had at least one or two big wins for the Alliance against the Horde, just to give us hope that in the next expansion, we'd be kicking ass. Stonard could've been one, but Stonard seems like a small outpost, and it wasn't a full victory, more a precision strike that left is standing, and still full of hostile NPC that attack if we get too close.

The Queue: Short but sweet {WoW}

Jan 23rd 2012 12:40PM Suffer, players, as your pathetic login screen betrays you!

Sorry, I couldn't help myself. I only started with Cataclysm, so I never saw the previous loading screens, but I would like the option to change it.

The Queue: Why I welcome the Dragon Soul nerf and why you should, too {WoW}

Jan 19th 2012 12:49PM That's like The World Ends With You; you can choose the difficulty level, and even handicap yourself by setting your characters' level. Both of these determine the loot that drops, with higher difficulty levels giving you better loot, and the level handicap boosting the drop rate.

I love that game.

The Queue: Why I welcome the Dragon Soul nerf and why you should, too {WoW}

Jan 19th 2012 12:40PM April 1st is the first of the month, the first day of a quarter, and for many companies the first day of the fiscal year. Therefore, when companies use placeholder dates, and their computers don't allow for something unspecific (like "sometime in 2012"), they'll use a date like April 1st.

Kind of boring compared to a genuine April Fool's joke from Walmart.

Blue Posts and Other WoW News: Blizzard considering changing the "Skyrim" Ultraxion trash, answers on raid nerfs {WoW}

Jan 19th 2012 9:55AM I wonder if they should have an achievement that explicitly states you completed Dragon Soul without the buff. That way you can have your "we did it the hard way" pride.
