Feb 20th 2008 10:31AM "Real Servers" are meant to be in datacenters, where noise is not an issue. Have you ever heard one? They're really loud. For people that don't have a basement or separate room to put them in, a real server would be horrible. Not to mention that your power bill would skyrocket.

When you die, you lose all your stuff if there's another player around to take it.
Seems harsh? If you die to PVE, your body could still be unlooted. In PVP, your buddy can loot you if possible.
If you lose all your stuff? Make sure you have a backup set. Then kill somebody else for their things. This was the best PVP ever.
Asheron's Call had a good system also. You die = the most expensive thing in your bag is available for looting. The higher your level, the more things dropped. This was very fun as well.

Aug 1st 2007 12:13PM @7, Xbox Live has the benefit of everybody having the exact same system and microphones designed specifically for this one task.
When you throw PCs that can be configured an infinite number of ways at micophones that can range from bad to worse to great, I'm frankly amazed that Vent and TS work as well as they do.
The vast amount of different hardware out there is what makes lots of configuration items necessary. Frankly, I'm very glad Vent offers directsound filters. The compresser has been saving my ears for years now.

Aren't there others just like that one -- one is in that Mage's tower is Azshara, and another is in Ironforge.
