Jan 2nd 2008 11:15AM What a horribly patronising article. Why cant we choose who we play with?
Tell you what, you pay my subs and pay me by the hour and then you can choose who I'm playing with.
Until then take your high horse elsewhere.
Aug 31st 2007 7:40AM Feral Druid + Depleted Badge = Endless grind.
I killed 11000 mobs in BEM, now THATS a grind.
Eventually found the badge on the AH for 3500 gold.
Jul 26th 2007 11:08AM I've worked in the games industry for about 8 years after being a gamer since the spectrum days and an online gamer since doom, 28800 baud rate modems and bulletin boards.
And honestly it seriously undermines your enjoyment of games to see the workings behind it all.
I've worked in community management, retail, development and now publishing and frankly its not pretty.
Ok, its just business, but games are an escape and working in it and seeing the darkside and having games around you ALL the time takes away some of the escapism.
I think I love wow so much because its not only the game that it is, but I've also never worked in that field. I'd HATE to work for Blizzard, I NEED wow and I dont want it spoilt.
Dont do it, think Game or Job, dont think both.

Lovely mount that, very nice indeed.
Mar 5th 2007 5:14AM Oh great, just great.
I've got 3 toons, a 70 feral druid, a 60 shadow priest and a 60 ice mage.
.10 is the end for me, I can take a hint, account deactivated.
Mar 2nd 2007 6:58AM I agree with all but the 3rd point and agree with Dave (#3) on his comment that keying weeds out the alts.
With regards to point 5, my guild doesnt have enough healers as theres considerable grinding to do @70 and our healers all spec'd to do more damage. In fact point 6 is valid as all our druids are spec'ing resto now as .10 kills ferals off for the anything beyond normal 5 mans. Yes, we've spent some time on the PTR, we got tired of the theorycrafting and wanted to try it.
Bear tanks work fine on the normal 5 mans but just dont hack it on the heroics or kara, so they'll be dropped once on live post .10
Its brutal but we didnt nerf them, Blizztard did.
Feb 28th 2007 8:39AM I'm a... no... wait, I was a feral druid and the other toon on my account was, a priest!
Yep, account "deactivated", I've given up.
Blizz have completely lost touch, the druid nerf was brutal and removed us from the heroics and 10+ instances, the priest changes demonstrate they really dont understand what they're doing.
Time to move on, it pains me to leave, but I've got to stop waiting for them to luck onto a decent change.
