Oct 24th 2007 10:06AM WoW Insider Comment Section: A place to identify those who get it and those who dont.
Salute to 4, 10, 15, 18 for "getting it"
Sep 25th 2007 10:26AM I remember the one time I disagreed with an author on WOW and all the fanbois got on my case for being derogatory. Good luck with these posts above.
Anyway, this is what I have brought up with my guild but have chosen not to take the time to present to Blizzard.
For Karazhan (and maybe SSC and beyond, but I dont know cause I haven't gotten there yet) the week raid ID reset is fine. However, a little tweek would probably solve much of the gripe.
The raid ID should ALSO RESET when KARAZHAN IS FULLY CLEARED. Unless you are a really hardcore guild its still going to take 2-3 days of 4 hour raids to clear Karahzan, especially if you are taking people with you who need the gear. If you manage to get through the instance in 2 days then it should reset on the overnight timer for the next day. The Tuesday reset should a be a hard day always. So if you clear the instance on Tuesday and Wednesday and part of Thursday the raid ID would reset for Friday. Then you can go again on the weekend once more.
Clearing should include every boss including Nightbane and the trash boss. I think if you can do all this in 3 days then there is nothing wrong with going again.
My guild has recently lost members because we just have not been able to gear up enough of our 25 man team to have the DPS to kill Gruul. We have the number of players required, but its taking months to get them all gear. In turn the game is starting to suck for our most hardcore who love our guild, dont want to leave, and don't want to do Kara anymore. If we had 25 guys be able to get the gear a little easier I do not think it would make it any easier for us to then learn and kill Gruul, Magtheridon, The Eye and Serpentshrine Cavern. It would just make it possible for us to actually run them with chance of success.
The saddest part is that I know Blizzard is losing players on my server because they don't want to leave the guild they love, but they really want to progress. Eventually its going to cost them and I think Kara is a huge part of the hurdle. Theres nothing better than trying to get 2 or 3 Kara IDs going and then not being able to run any of em later in the week because too many people are locked to different raid IDs. This has happened to us too many times. The only thing worse than having to wait 4 days for the instance to reset is to not be able to shuffle players between IDs and then having neither group get past Curator because you are short a healer a tank or a warlock.
Maybe a more agressive player would like to present the KARA RESET ON FULL CLEAR idea to Blizzard. I don't care about credit. If you can get something changed with it then you did the work and we all reap the reward.
Aug 14th 2007 2:25PM You're all sheep. You either would have posted it the same way or not at all, but not that emo-lite version. Go get a hug from your mother.
God forbid people critique. Even after I state that I critique when WOWinsider does amazing work too you still have a problem. A weak article is a weak article. Thats all. Im sure that the author would rather have that feedback than a bunch of blowhard supporters that don't tell him where he went wrong, only where hes right.
And Wulfhere thanks for bringing in the profanity.
Finally, if this was such a good piece, why did it receive only 13 comments when stuff here usually goes well into the 20s when its good? Heck 7 and 1/2 of the posts were @me.
WTHPWN yourself guys.
Aug 13th 2007 6:40PM Somehow you all take this as a personal attack at this writer. I read wowinsider every day and I comment frequently about how great the writing is. If you don't read it every day and appreciate a rehash that can be found by going back in the history then grats on your being lazy too.
I appreciate these guys a ton. I also state when I dont. This seemed like filler. All I was saying is just dont do filler, say I dont have the time and skipp the week.
Aug 13th 2007 1:12PM I love when anyone at WOWinsider doesn't meet their deadline and throws together a best/worst of episode. Thanks for wasting my time with the same crap again.
In the future just say, "I didn't have time to get this week done" and move on. We all get the fact that this isnt a paid job and your time cannot always be dedicated to WOWinsider.
Jul 13th 2007 11:35AM I love Mazzle UI! Its great in almost everything it does and I highly recommend it to everyone.
There are too many pros to list so I'm going to list the cons.
1. It is a resource hog-however with the last patch debugging some Ace addons I've had no issues
2. When major patches come out it takes Mr. Mazzle a while to update and you will most likely experience a large block of errors until its updated.
Thats about it. Everything else is awesome. In order to not have to deal with the key bindings I don't like I have a Nostromo N52 game pad and I've mapped those keys to the awkward bindings. Issues eliminated.
If someone here wants to do a piece on the N52 gamepad I think it would bring a lot of value to players, but I digress.
