Aug 4th 2010 1:37AM As someone who visited Moon Guard briefly at the request of a friend, and saw what kind of "RP" and I use that term VERY loosely, that they consider acceptable on this server as a whole, yes, this is needed. When you have people commonly saying they are demons and vampires and worse, and that is BEFORE the naughty RP enters into it (for goodness sake, one draenei tried to convince me she was a succubus) I hope they use the 'Luffa' method of cleaning Goldshire. (reference to a VERY old webcomic done by a former KT member....the "Luffa" was an infernal let loose by some gnomes)
Aug 3rd 2010 9:13AM Thanks BenMS, that's the reason I have stuck with the server....we have such damn good people. After all, we are the server that had a guild all chip in to buy a sick guild member a laptop so they could play from the hospital....heck, one of our guild mates is a member of that guild on his Horde toons, so we are proud to have him. :D
Aug 3rd 2010 12:55AM I plan to run people over...and just because I can, here is my essay:
In a world where the Alliance and Horde battle for supremacy...In the desperate struggle against the Cult of Doom and Deathwing...Only one guild can bring you absolute victory...One guild has the brute strength...One guild has the eldritch might and resources...One guild has the unparalleled prowess to achieve ultimate victory and reign over Deathwing, and reforge the world back into something whole as champions and heroes of all Azeroth!
We are not that guild.
If you're looking for a guild into fun times, crazy people, and a sense of belonging where everyone feels like they are part of a second family, then PISCUS INFERNO is the guild to choose!
Support the flaming fishes in Cataclysm beta for mayhem, insanity, fun and more in our journeys through Azeroth and beyond.
If you want to give the beta invite to a guild that will take down Deathwing a month after he's released, we are not your guild. If you want a guild that will take a group of level one naked gnome and raid the Lost Isles in their skivvies we are your guild!
Please note that Piscus Inferno may not be suitable for young children. Some side effects include side pains, missing butts from ROFLMAO, occasional raids into end-game content, missing pants, Harbl leg humps, and bad jokes. If you experience a lapse of time, please see your Ethereal abductors. Consult your significant other to see if Piscus Inferno is right for you.
Aug 2nd 2010 9:34PM YES! The email we got WAS legit! I KNEW my essay would win....we are just that nuts.
Jul 8th 2010 1:17AM Oh, and to clarify, I have yet to see one piece of evidence that shows your RealID email address can be displayed anywhere in game. There is no evidence that anyone can get your IP or your location in reality. All the fear mongering going on is just silly. Unless your name is SO unique that only you possess that combination of first and last name, that a search will point straight to you, the whole concept that this will destroy your life is sheer "sky is falling" talk. I can't even find a single bit of info about me in the first 10 pages of google search of just my first and last name and my last name is NOT a common one. Someone please explain how your real name being linked will cause no end of grief.
Oh and just skip the "witness protection" crap, anyone who knows anything about that knows that they are given a NEW NAME, so they don't have to use their old one.
Jul 8th 2010 1:06AM > I actually have bachelors of science degrees in Networking and Network Security.
Okay. I will take that at face value. For now. But let's dissect your post and see how well it stands up.
>If this goes live, anybody from the IT department could look you up on the Internet for recent records, and even monitor your home IP address or even get a court order to salvage your HDD and use it for a forensic toolkit.
Um...WHAT?! You are getting a NAME. That's it. Not a location. Not an IP. Not even a country of origin. And based on how your common your name may be, that could end up being about as useful as banana peel in a dancing contest. Please show me explicit proof of how you can go from a real name of a random schmo somewhere that you have no idea where he lives can lead to you getting his IP, let alone a court order to get the law to go after his hard drive. I call bull on this statement. And if you REALLY knew how the internet worked, you would know better.
Now, if you mean BLIZZARD'S IT department....ummm, they've had access to that information already, so what's changed?
You know, I'm not even going to dissect the rest of your post, because this part alone shows that while you may have a technical degree as evident from your use of the big words, acronyms and lingo in the later part, you lack the common sense to figure out that what you are proposing is impossible from the information given. Yes, YOU can do that on YOURSELF. But guess what, you know more information about YOU then anyone else does.
Tell you what. Here's a name, you tell me what router he uses on his home PC. George Sutton.
Jul 8th 2010 12:38AM Oh noes! Someone can see my name! And a quick google search of my name reveals....nothing on the first page. Hell, I went to page 10 and nothing on me yet. Maybe I am the rarity, but my real name is pretty useless.
And I am sorry to say, but as one downranked comment said, no one really cares. No one cares about my name. No one cares about your name. No one cares about your dad who PvPs name.
What will this affect? Nothing. The only mistake I can see ever happening is if Blizz decides to have your real name visible in the armory. THAT would be a mistake, and I am hoping Blizz realizes this. And who knows, lifting the veil of anonymity may actually cause people to realize for once in their lives that they are actually dealing with REAL PEOPLE. And they may actually treat them with RESPECT. And then it will lead to a whole trend of people being NICE. DEAR GODS! QUICKLY! STOP BLIZZARD BEFORE THEY RUIN THE GAME!
Jul 1st 2010 1:34PM I agree! It and the bacon must make it into the final or I will be a sad Tseran. And my Worgen will be even more sad.
Apr 27th 2010 12:22PM Cadychan, that was....BRILLIANT! I'd tip my hat off to you if I wore one! :D
Oh, and Radioted....that's the explosive variety, everyone knows the non-combat version would end up molested by too many dorfs.
Apr 24th 2010 9:52PM To all the arcane mages QQing about this, I say pipe up. Arcane is the king of DPS currently because they can go all out, spend all their mana like cash and turn it into damage. They have potential to do incredible amounts of damage but they end up dry. This talent is actually a good way to keep arcane mages in line with the other two specs. If you arcane mages can't handle a built in throttle to keep you in line with other folks, then you may as well reroll another class. If you can't handle being on top of the heap, then just quit now.
I personally hope they use this to limit the arcane mages and keep them in line with everyone else. Time for the equality to begin.
