WoW Moviewatch: I Dislike Bloodelf Rap {WoW}

Feb 16th 2010 3:16PM Yay, Wowcrendor is back.

Love his stuff.

WoW Moviewatch: Mangletooth {WoW}

Feb 11th 2010 12:36PM Lol, it was actually pretty good. The pacing was definitely a strong point.

That, and it wasn't another music video =P

Toravon: Strategy for the latest Wintergrasp boss {WoW}

Feb 10th 2010 10:57PM Looks like should be putting in some attempts on this boss. Even though I'm mostly 232 with 245 and two ICC pieces, I though I'd have a tough time tanking this. Looks like that won't be the case.

Around Azeroth: The monarch of the seas {WoW}

Feb 10th 2010 1:39PM Falkor from The Neverending Story?

Breakfast Topic: Are You Ready for Some Football? {WoW}

Feb 9th 2010 11:30AM Yards and inches are part of the same unit system (the English System) as the foot. So that argument makes perfect sense.

Editorial: Thoughts on the Ensidia ban {WoW}

Feb 5th 2010 8:11PM Play the devil's advocate: Ensidia did not know that anything that they specifically were doing was triggering the bug; i.e.t he bug was inexplicably occurring.

They had a right to continue the fight, regardless of the bug. Note: they were seeking to kill the Lich King legitimately; it's not their fault that a bug occurs for no apparent reason.

As such, whether they deserved a ban rests squarely on a single action they either did or did not take: reporting the bug after the first attempt, BEFORE the second attempt. Reporting the bug makes them innocent: they knew there was a game-breaking bug and did the right thing reporting it--allowing them to continue to exercise their right to kill the Lich King first. all responsible actions were taken and the rest was on Blizzard's hands. On the other hand, not reporting implies that knew it was a bug and that they sought to exploit it. Not reporting is irresponsible and deserving of the ban.

Taking away the achievement and loot, however, was a seperate issue and completely warranted. They did not get the first legitimate kill, innocent or not. Therefore, no loot or title is deserved. And this also raises the issue if they were innocent or not. Assuming they were, Blizzard should have promptly hotfixed the bug and let them attempt the fight for real, which may have lead to them legitimately getting the world first.

All in all, Blizzard dispensed judgment on the spot, and then asked questions later. That was extremely wrong of them. The situation needed much review before barring Ensidia from a legitimate attempt at the fight. Even if they were trying to make a point, they absolutely no right treating Ensidia differently for being Ensidia.That is discrimination, my friends.

And quite frankly, if I was indeed innocent according to the above, I would be pretty pissed off too.

Daelo and Ghostcrawler discuss the Lich King {WoW}

Feb 3rd 2010 10:17PM I loved seeing The Lich King frequently. It definitely made him feel like more of an omnipresent evil.

However, I just wish that every time you did see him, you didn't end up foiling one of his plans only for him to say "This isn't over." I would have liked to see him actually score more victories so that he would appear a more menacing, omnipresent entity.

You have the Wrathgate event, the Drakkari quest line in Zul'Drak, the death kinght starting area, and weakening him by destroying his heart (well, the last one, was 50/50). By the end of it all, I expected to be able to defeat him since I have been doing so up until now. If he instead ended up kicking my butt a few times, then I would question that possibility.

The WoW Player's Guide to Star Trek Online {WoW}

Feb 2nd 2010 12:13PM Reminds me of a car logo.

If Subaru and Cadillac had a child.

Spoilers: Fall of the Lich King cinematic {WoW}

Feb 1st 2010 6:38PM Aw, why no Darion Morgraine?

World of WarCrafts: Get Lich or Die Tryin' (NSFW) {WoW}

Feb 1st 2010 3:54PM Lol, loved the fat guy.
