Maintenance day loot from WoW.com {WoW}

Mar 16th 2010 6:58AM Rawr.

New Sony Reader PRS-300 and PRS-600 details leaked {Engadget}

Jul 30th 2009 4:15PM I'm an ebook pirate. I haven't paid for a book in so long that my ebook reader has actually paid for itself, more than twice over. You could say it's paid for itself, and for the next one I buy. Even if these things cost £500 each they'd still be value for money, and anyone who can't see that should go ahead and buy a $5 calculator and do the maths for themselves.

Misery and company {WoW}

Sep 2nd 2008 6:45PM Can we take a break from whining about the huge PvE nerf, to consider something else? Like PvP?

I'm not sure, but after having played about with the talent tree one thing sticks out at me: the tree is much less cluttered. Talent points spread out much more easily and there are no hard choices. The points we gain from the new Misery can go into Imp:SF or Imp:ST.

Another thing: that tops us off at 6% possible spell hit through talents, doesn't that pretty much reduce the possibility of anybody but a Warlock resisting our spells to zero? Might be useful for PvP.

Death Knights receive unique voices {WoW}

Aug 30th 2008 1:47PM Yeah, sure. Give Death Knights EVEN MORE cool stuff. It's not like they're going to comprise over half the playerbase already.

Jesus, am I the only one who thinks it's dead unfair that DKs are getting all this special treatment? Giefv Shaman tattoos, or cuts and bruises for my Warrior. Hell, give me Warrior a fighting voice!

All the World's a Stage: So you want to be an orc {WoW}

Aug 25th 2008 4:42AM Lies. This article is full of lies. Misleading propaganda.

Fear of hackers may make me play WoW on a Mac full-time {WoW}

Feb 25th 2008 3:35PM So you're too lazy to use noscript and download/update individual addons yet you think there are a lot of 'innocents' getting hacked? Innocents is just a euphamism for slackers.

You can't expect someone else to look after your security for you.

The enemy within the Alliance {WoW}

Nov 24th 2007 6:48PM As a previous post mentioned the Horde are, on average, older than the Alliance. Problem solved, right there.

Oh and David - the topic of this column is as old the the whiners. You cannot solve this problem with lengthy posts and an attitude - positive or else.

I play Alliance currently and I have a simple solution - accept defeat and win the battles, not the war. One really good fight is a victory, regardless of whether or not the Battleground was won.

Blood Sport: Building an Arena team, part 2 {WoW}

Nov 22nd 2007 2:47PM @6 lrn2rebuttal.

He posted a montage of pages from the game manual.
I posted pointing that out with examples of how erroneous these game manuals were in the first place.
You posted calling me names.

WOOTLES! You win.

Blood Sport: Building an Arena team, part 2 {WoW}

Nov 22nd 2007 2:24PM Your column is slowly but steadily driving Capt. Obvz out of business. Not only do I doubt your arena ability but whether or not you actually play World of Warcraft.

My first point is that your post could be applied to any group scenario. You bring nothing specifcally relative to arenas. It could be said that your post is actually unhelpful to the 2v2 arena bracket, the cookie cutter combo of which is Lock/Druid.

Secondly I find it hard to believe that anyone who has played WoW past level 40 will state that Warriors 'naturally falling into the role of leader'...
Let me elaborate - the best PvPer is the leader, class is negligible. Let me further elaborate - a good team will need very little direction, just information. A good team will know who/where/when to assist and just need to be kept in the know of what's happening out of their 180 degree view of the game.

Thirdly and finally your personality by class hypothesis is stereotypical, dead wrong and I'm sure if I spent the time on Google I could find the site you copied it off.
I've played a healer in 40 man raids. The biggest groups requiring the most co-ordination and not only was I always performing to the max ability of my gear (blues beating T2) I was also the same egomaniacal asshole that liked to bomb his friends in MC :) Healers are just DPSers on steroids.

Please stop writing this column until you've got a WoW subscription at the very least.
