Feb 15th 2008 1:25PM Let's say we have four companies.
Companies A through D.
There's format 1 and Format 2.
Companies A and B make Format 1 drives. Company C makes format 2 drives. Company D makes drives for both formats.
Now, all four companies are competing with each other on the overall "media" stage, but only A,B,and D are competing in Format 1, and only C and D compete in format 2, which means there's less DIRECT competition.
Once there's only one format, and all four companies are making format 1 drives, then we're in a very similar situation: We have four companies in competition, only now they're in direct competition.
Remember, you're not buying "blu ray" or "HDDVD" you're buying PLAYERS and DISCS. Blu Ray and HDDVD aren't competing products, that you pay for, and so competition does not help the consumer at all.

As a Pally Engineer though I am glad for the transporter. Gadgetzan is such a good hub.
Dec 19th 2007 4:11PM A lot of people I see on ramps have a lot of greens.. and I think there are some classes that benefit from having gone to MC more than others... especially since, as a paladin, I now have a reasonable +damage bonus from the +healing on Lawbringer which makes taking down all of those hellfire demons a snap.
Dec 19th 2007 3:10PM I'm new to Outland, (played pre-BC and recently restarted) and run ramps three times. 30 gold in repair fees, and I still haven't cleared the instance. I'm decked out purple, everyone i've played with has been competent, but we keep having trouble, even the first boss. I just hope people will be geared better once I get to Furnace.

There were two other warlocks in the group.
