WoW what were you drinking last night?

November 24, 2007

One of the better stunts I’ve seen:

Well, for about the past week, I haven’t been playing, due to the fact my hard drive decided to shoot itself in the face. When my comp originally started to falter, I couldn’t even run WIndows, so in the remote chance someone had hacked my computer, I called a friend and had him change my password for me.



How stupid do you have to be?

This started out a very different post. It originally started life as a post about a stupid pally. Unfortunately it turned into a post about a short term decision by someone I trusted to do better.

First, the pally:

So we had this pally in our guild whom we tolerated for a long while. About the only person in the whole guild that we did tolerate. We tolerated him for a number of reasons:

1. He was a healer. Not as good a healer as he thought he was, but more often than not his healing assignment lived. Mostly. (more…)

Sometimes even GM’s have a sense of humour

    Q u o t e:
    If a demon possesses you and play on your account, is it considered account sharing?

    No, Indicium, though the language and harassment policies will still apply and any inappropriate language that occurs while possessed will not be removed.

    If you believe you are in danger of possession and wish to protect yourself from possible violations by an unwanted internal residence you may wish to pick up the new and improved [Blessed Tinfoil Hat].

    When guild leaders go bad

    I’ve never wanted to go out in a small forgettable way, so I decided to do something big, and perhaps somewhat irrational and stupid. But it was worth it!

    I’d like to contribute to Barthilas what I would hope to be a very entertaining video which pretty much describes what this server is about: heart-pounding adrenaline, and the “do anything” attitude laced with much humour.

    And he frapsed the whole thing!!

    It will probably get deleted

    I seriously wonder about the intelligence of the general population.

    Someone is complaining to Blizzard that gold sellers ripped them off $45. If I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes, I would not have believed it.

    To Whom it May Concern at Blizzard,
    Hello, my name is XXXX XXXX and I have been playing World Of Warcraft for about seven months. I love it – I have always been a fan of RPG’s – however my computer always limited me to console games. When I finally purchased a computer that could handle online gaming I immeadiately searched for an online RPG of epic status. Choosing WoW was an easy decision – it was the largest and best produced and the free trial sucked me right in – I was hooked!
    Roughly two months in to the experience I decided to look into buying gold on the internet – having just seen a website advertised on an ingame chat channel. When I reached the site I was impressed by how professional it looked – in fact the graphics are the same used on the official WoW website – and placed an order. The order arrived at my ingame mail in no time and I went on my way.

    I think I am getting less snarky.

    I actually resisted posting a snippy remark.

    Terrible terrible mage/priest got caught out by an officer in our old guild using the bot to afk in Alterac Valley – he got kicked out of the guild. Temporarily kicked out of course, as the other officers all pointed out that most of the officers and many of the long time members have used less than stellar methods of gaining reputation, gold, accounts and items. (Why do I even check those boards still? Oh right trainwreck entertainment when the weekly dramafest unfolds). Anyhow, a week or so after his temporary kicking he “retires” from the game with this post: (more…)

    I told the warlocks to stop talking about it.

    Blizzard has finally noticed:

    Uh Oh

    Best developer response, ever.

    He’s missing the point

    From Tobold’s blog:

    Hating the people you play with

    Fact is that whether it is 5-man groups or raids, somebody making a mistake or having an accident can easily wipe the whole group. ….. if enough of those incidents happen, it doesn’t exactly evoke love towards your fellow players. Some groups or raids simply end in failure, or even don’t get started at all, and you leave you cursing and fuming about the others.
