Mar 28th 2011 9:28PM I already have to suspend my belief when I am on my flying mount and the animation is EXACTLY the same as if it is suspended in mid-air or if it's going forward.
Goddammit, there's a reason why only hummingbirds evolved this, and they flap their wings like crazy in order to do so. If hang-gliders are allowed to just float in the air, think I might die a little inside.
Mar 27th 2011 7:13PM Reading this makes me sad. I got back into WoW after quitting back in vanilla. Signed up again with my friends, and one of us needed to be a tank. I wanted to pick the most 'pure' tanking class, and my logical deduction led me to choosing the Warrior. Why?
- Warrior is the only 'pure' plate melee class.
- Because it is the only 'pure' plate melee class, it must obviously be the most 'pure' tank, if specced to be so.
- Paladins can heal! Blizzard must surely have scaled back their tanking abilities if they can heal themselves and others, as that would be OP, in my opinion. I guess this was my own way of seeing the "5% rule".
Well I guess I'm wrong. I still love my warrior and nothing will make me change my choice in class. But it does feel like Pallys can basically do everything better, which feels unfair.
Mar 22nd 2011 8:54PM Women don't object to looking sexy in games. How many women have you seen play female dwarf? Beauty is VERY important for women, and it's not even a cultural thing. It's nature. Tell me a culture where women don't care about their looks.
What women object to is looking like whores selling their body for lewts. If character art has women with barely covered melons jiggling every time they move, that offends them because they don't want to feel like this game promotes women looking like cheap whores.
What I personally object to is the lack of realism in seeing female armour wearers with the same stats as male armour wearers but they have gigantic gaps in where armour is covered. But that's just me, I'm pedantic like that.

Mar 13th 2011 8:52PM Correct me if I'm wrong, but there is this assumption being made in this blog post that the majority of gold being sold are hacked gold. I ask, where is the evidence? Please link me numbers, not just hearsay.
Also, wouldn't dealing punishment to gold farming THROUGH hacking be extremely? Just follow the gold trail, and it will eventually lead to the toons/accounts of those that directly benefited from hacked gold. Instant ban for those accounts.
If it's worth it for hackers to continuously make new accounts, make a lvl 1 character to funnel the gold to, to quickly offload and sell it, then perhaps implement a gold cap for toons per level. Say, lvl 1 can hold max 500g, and it scales progressively.
This isn't the real world. Blizzard has TOTAL control over the WoW world system. They have access to EVERY chat message, gold transferred, reputation earned by a toon at a certain time. They have the capability to eradicate gold farming, IF THEY WANTED. They can create a crack CSI forensics team to track down every player guilty of assisting or directly being involved in gold farming.
The reality though, is that Blizzard isn't choosing to do this. It could be because they have found it would be too costly. But the most probable cause is because they realised that there is a demand, and there is a demand for a reason. If they eradicate gold farming, they will make a lot of players unhappy. They can't seem to be condoning gold farming, however, as that would enrage the hardcore/ideological players.
So their plan is to act like they hate gold farming, and every now and then make a very public display to show what they're doing to combat it. But they're creating just enough pressure to ensure it doesn't get out of control, but also not enough to squeeze it out completely.
Acting like gold farming is the greatest crime on earth, is a bit like those piracy ads that scream 'You're Stealing!' It's a massive overreaction.
Feb 28th 2011 5:41PM Noob question: I played Arathi Basin with a friend yesterday (was awesome). We joined as a group, but when we got into the game, we were no longer in the same group/party. I could see my mate as one of the guys in the raid. But we wanted to play together, and not being in the same group we found it was more difficult getting a track of one another, and helping/healing one another.
I guess my question is, why are we not in the same group/party when we join BG? Is there a way to do so?
Feb 27th 2011 8:42PM A question: Is there a way to do Battlegrounds PVP without leveling up? The reason I ask is because I am playing the game with a friend, and we both started new characters. Unfortunately, I play a lot more than he does, and now I have to stop myself playing my 37 warrior. I didn't touch him on the weekend, and my friend managed to catch up to 33, but I want to know if I can play Battlegrounds without leveling up? Is it a matter of just quitting the game before the BG game finishes?
Sep 16th 2010 7:52PM Too all you DMC fans, I never got into DMC because Dante looked like a manbag flaunting bisexual homo. I'm glad they rebooted his image to something more realistic.
