Jul 18th 2010 8:43PM wot makes sense for a f2p game - its little more than 30-50 player matches - it felt a lot like counterstrike actually.
Jul 18th 2010 8:39PM So how do you know they need more people? Frankly some projects (for the amount of work being done) more people doesn't actually make any sense.
Jul 18th 2010 7:15PM Fun thing to do though - raid as frost and beat everyone else in DPS on various bosses. I did this in ICC on my mage alt a while back just to prove how easy this game is, and I don't even know what I'm doing with my mage like someone who has played one for years and years.
Jul 12th 2010 5:09PM You'll notice btw that the CEO wrote that letter - that means some serious crap hit the fan. I suspect it was the en-masse cancellations (I heard the server that handles that was overloaded). Losing trust in a product or a brand name is pretty much the worst thing any company can do to themselves - I've seen companies go out of business for lack of trust (Gateway as an example).
If Blizzard tries to pull something like this again - they will at least know that their customers aren't afraid to pull the trigger and leave.
Jul 12th 2010 3:52AM I've been a customer for 6+ years (on cingular) - only reason I haven't left for Verizon or Sprint is I'm still waiting for the perfect phone/plan (the evo was it, until they slapped on the 10$ 4G tax - even though they will never have 4G service here). My contract has long since expired.
Anyhow so far no letter... All the complaints I've sent all get are "we're continuing to improve service etc etc".
Jul 8th 2010 6:04PM Keep in mind too - its still against the NDA to send these off to people :/, but no-one reads that crap anyhow.
Jul 7th 2010 10:13PM The other thing about android - is it is running on top of a VM - ios isn't. Even with Flash and that additional overhead it was just about as quick as the iPhone.
Jul 5th 2010 1:47PM Would be shame if these screenshots were fingerprinted so Blizzard could figure out who was posting them.
Jul 1st 2010 1:58PM Wondering if other races were a tad more detailed as blood elves we would have more night elf musicals?
Seriously - my night elf priest looks positively retro next to a blood elf :(.
Jun 29th 2010 6:40PM I think one difference with WoW (having tried Aion, plus played Lineage and Lineage 2 for a number of years) is that there's something for everyone no matter how much time you want to put into it.
If you want to log in for 30 minutes and do some quests alone - its got that.
If you want to log in and find a group to do a dungeon - its got that.
Want to do hardcore raids? Its got that
PVP - sure its unbalanced (no mmo is perfect in this regard) but its got that too.
I could say the same thing about many mmo's (EVE Online for example).
Aion to me is boring, but on top of that pretty much forces you to pvp and pretty much forces you to group. And its a real shame - in my eyes some minor tweaks and it could have been so much cooler (like flight that doesn't suck).
