Jun 18th 2008 5:05PM No, because "infinite" in TcG usually means "arbitrarily large number".

MtG has lots of "infinite" combos. Some good (bans ensue), some just cool (casual fodder!), and the game system of that is far from broken.

How to convince tanks to PuG {WoW}

May 16th 2008 3:26AM Excellent article.

Tanking is one very masochistic role (seriously, you play to be beaten all the time) but that doesn't mean a tank enjoys horrible PUGs.

As my server has a very low population, I find myself asked to join a PUG all the time, and most of the time, I'll go. So, I have seen everything. From rogues that stun a mob while I'm position him away from pats, to mages that break their own sheep with a Pyro.

Still, the worst is the guy that know exactly how to tank and will point you how much you suck, even if that person is the one screwing around. This is extremely common in MgT, where DPS are required to do more than stand and whack stuff mindlessly.

Let a tank do its job. Unless you see he's doing obvious mistakes, a tank knows what he's doing.
