Drama Mamas: My guildie is a registered sex offender {WoW}

Aug 15th 2011 1:24PM The sex offenders list is a tool that provides people just enough information to cause them to panic, and not enough to validly address the threat. People who end up on the sex offenders list can be there for very serious crimes, and could very possibly be someone you don't want to spend any time with. There are also teenagers who have ended up on that list, for life, for consensually taking and emailing pictures of themselves. They were charged with the creation and distribution of child pornography.

Ultimately, it's up to the individuals in the guild to decide what to do. If they feel uncomfortable not knowing, and no one wants to say what happened, they can and should leave. If they want to know more, they should ask, respectfully and calmly, accept the answers given without being rude, and then base their actions off of more complete information. Or they can choose to limit their interaction and information exchanged with this person to the level they are comfortable with. None of these responses are wrong (though I am naturally biased against acting without complete information.)

The Light and How to Swing It: Basic retribution cooldowns -- when to pop your wings {WoW}

Jul 13th 2011 4:39PM CLCRet (or CLCInfo, or Ovale, or whatever) don't save you from knowing the details of the rotation if you want to play your best. They help a lot of players not do their worst, and can be a crutch that keeps players from doing their best, yes. But they tell you what your ideal max DPS rotation is against a training dummy, not what your ideal spell is to cast right now in the fight your actually in. The trick is knowing when to stick to the rotation and when to break out of it. CLCRet lets you spend your time keeping track of whats going on so you can decide what button to press next, instead of keeping track of your rotation.

Apr 28th 2011 11:24AM "As for why it wasn't caught...with a system as large as WoW, even a 0.5% failure rate is bound to be noticeable."

The odds that it wasn't caught are remarkably low. The odds that fixing it was deemed critical for release are also remarkably low.

"The authenticator box isn't showing up? And that does what, adds a whole two seconds to the login process for 40% of users? Yeah, OK, log that and then get back to making sure the game doesn't crash when you talk to a quest giver."

Every project ships with known issues. With a growing segment of the player base wanting new content (non-raiders bored with existing dungeons, raiders wanting new ways to gear up to push through the next bit of content without farming the same boss again, etc) would fixing the authenticator box really be worth a week's delay?
