Oct 26th 2011 6:45PM Considering Metzen came out wearing an Alliance hoodie, and they largely ignored the horde team during the live raid until they got to Rag, I'm calling BS on the faction bias.
Also this whole comment thread is the reason some people are embarrassed to say they play WoW. Please, take a moment to reflect on what you're saying, and how you sound. There is a reason people who play WoW get stereotyped as mouth-breathers who live with their parents. Seriously, if you can handle the headache that will ensue, take a look at all the comments and tell me your not at least a little embarrassed for this community.
One person's opinion does not affect your gameplay. You would play your faction regardless of bias, so why concern yourself with it? No one faction has more kids than the other. You chose your character for some reason. Did you like their backstory? Their look? Their starting zone? Cause your friend was playing one? Whatever reason that was, it hasn't changed.
Everybody feels that there is bias in one thing or another. That faction has a better questline in this zone. This faction has cooler leaders. This class is better at PVP. That class is OP in PVE. At Blizzcon this year they joked about getting rid of Warlocks entirely. Is the entire warlock community up in arms? No. It's a joke. Move on. If you are seriously so concerned about it, maybe it's time to stop playing for a while until you can gain some perspective.

Jun 26th 2009 8:21PM Between the common house spiders bigger than a wall clock, snakes that can eat cats, "roo guards" for your vehicle, bandicoots, or "that's not a shark, I'll show you a shark" and all other manner of wildlife that can kill you by land or by sea, I have officially decided I will never set foot in Australia. If you're in my guild and you recognize this name, or these examples you know why.
In case you don't believe me, maybe you'll believe these guys:

I'd say that now I feel bad about trashing Australia, but I don't. :-P
Jun 25th 2009 3:29PM Leave it to Australia to take the fun out of video games.

The difference with EVE and WoW is that there are INGAME mechanics to scam people in EVE. It's the point of the game. You're a space pirate. You're using ingame mechanics to take territory, money, ships, whatever. Goons use every in-game mechanic to scam and steal from BoB (formerly) and pubbys who don't know any better. That's the game you are playing, and that's what you're signing up for when you play.
In WoW, you're not doing that. You're scamming people who didn't sign up for it, and who aren't expecting it. And that's where the difference lies.
That's the difference between running a casino vs lifting someones wallet. Oh, it was just lying around in their back pocket so they totally had it coming, right? I mean, they should have know to keep it secured to their person with a chain and then vacuum sealed so nobody could get into it. I mean, that's the completely safe thing to do, so they should have done it. What rubes.

No, seriously, Goons are asses. They'll tell you that themselves. It's the whole point of being a Goon. They're griefers, it's what they do, and they do it well.

That's not so much stupidity as it's weighing risk vs reward. What the risk in spending $1 and getting nothing vs the reward of spending $1 and winning $1 million? There's no risk of spending $1 a week (or whatever lotteries are nowadays). Low risk vs high reward. I used to lose more money than that in change (remember change? The stuff that used to jingle in your pockets? I'm too young to feel this old)
Casinos are the same. Go in knowing you're going to spend that money. My fiance loves craps. He enjoys playing the game. He goes in knowing he's going to spend x amount of dollars. If he walks out with more (which he usually does, that lucky bastard) then awesome for him. If he ends up spending it all, well, then that was the plan anyway, wasn't it?
We're all spending money to play a game here, and if you're paying it you must believe that the reward of playing is more than the risk of not having that $14.99 a month.
Casinos are offering a service that people are asking for, and the amount of money people spend is up to them. Scammers and hackers don't. They offer you a service you're asking for, but don't give that to you. And that's where the problem lies, isn't it?
