Alliance to the Bone

I have flirted with Horde side a few times. They seem to be the most abandoned of my alts though, they don’t have the support system meaning the toons with complementary professions and the gold my alliance do, it makes and easier to walk away from.

When a friend moved to Jubie’thos Horde side PVP server for raiding,  I dug out a horde hunter that had made it to her 40′s on there ,  and had already gone through 2 motivational surges throughout my Wow playing history,   the first one was when RL friends started a BE female only guild for which I rolled her for, and her first revival when one of my raiding guilds decided to play alts on Jubie  horde side for a short period,  so for what I thought would be a minor revival,   I logged in and brushed off the dust; deleted the bag full of arrows and spent the little gold she had on a better riding skill and some glyphs, and then I kept playing.

I got to look around the server, and was surprised to see how many people were on during my peak hours.  I’ve now spent a fair bit of time on US servers with high Aussie populations, and their Aussie peak are nothing like a real Aussie peak on a real oceanic server.

I hung out until a level 25 guild invited me and I am in a random guild that invites rabble like myself randomly just because we are tagless.

She is 67 now, but I want her to 85 just so I can have at least one 85 horde side. but I am having some allegiance issues, firstly Jubie’thos is a PVP realm, and those pesky Alliance try to kill me when I am questing,  and then secondly there are the  BG’s I throw myself into to mix up my leveling.

My first reaction to seeing a higher score on the BG board next to the Alliance symbol,  is ‘yipee’ we are winning.  Except I know I shouldn’t be getting exciting over Alliance winning while I am playing Horde.

I also feel guilty killing Alliance races.

I’ve spent so many years killing horde that their faces are a blur – I don’t pick out their races, or notice their hair.  All I see is a red tag about their head that makes them fair game,  but now,  killing Alliance brings a small attack of conscience Instead of oh,  I killed a enemy,  it’s awee I killed a little Gnome… or Aweee the poor furry faced worgen, and dwarves – I see a red headed dwarf female and I think,  how can I shoot something that looks like ‘me’ ( my level 85 hunter being red headed dwarven female)  or the other more often  me,  a NE shadow priest, or the other not so much me’s

You  see it’s become even harder since I finally got my 100k kills on my Priest,   I guess that technically now makes me a life time sworn enemy of the Horde.  I wear my badge of Hk’s as my title,  and I was thinking; FINALLY (  considering I always seem to end up baby sitting something because no ones else does  – rather than zerging like all those other people with mass amounts of Hk’s do. )

Warcraft Banners

Where was I ? From Thinkgeek Warcraft Banners

They seem a little on the small side for $40,  I think one of those silk screen flag sized ones would be better, either way  It would need to compete with my skull  pirate flag though in the Pc room, or I could display it with pride in my lounge though I am not sure either would go well with my Silver  Damask curtains and wooden floors ( though a Purple Darnassus flag might. )

Wow themed Printed Fabric

I was actually looking for some geek themed printed fabric when I got to looking at Spoonflower -  you can “design,  print and sell your own fabric”  which is awesome, not necessarily cheap though,  but for something unique and designed by you not too badly priced. 

I have no idea what I would want to print personally, but it would get expensive if you intended on using it for say a range of bags that get sold at a reasonable price,  but for a one off thing / small projects  I love it!

I found lots of robots.  Oh Robot ♥

and Sushi Themed material

and OwlsZombies & ghosts & Skulls and of course the most important thing of all

Then there is Horde Themed Material.

unfortunately there is no Alliance themed one. 

So what do you think of a Horde themed sheet set – think your gf/wife/hubby/bf would mind sleeping in sheets printed with your gaming obsession.

For the Horde!

Well I actually play Alliance – Alliance ftw!

Firstly
I’m a little upset that that the Blizzard official halloween costumes has one Alliance set ( the Night Elf Prosthetic )the rest are Horde, and I know that the Alliance humanoid features don’t require masks.. but Im not feeling the love here…

What about Night Elf Facial tatoos?
A Pink Pigtailed Gnome Wig
A blow up Mechostrider

and Secondly
But I was out shopping today with my Best friend, ( yeah 2nd last day of my holidays from work) and she is also an ex Hordie and Wow player.. in between me telling her about what’s going on in Wow, and convincing her that she does not want to play again, she has escaped the addiction… and besides she won’t roll Alliance if she started again, we saw a local sydney resident wandering through the food court of the shopping centre wearing his Alliance Tshirt.

I Couldn’t help it, My Alliance breathren may smite me.
I yelled “FOR THE HORDE”

and my friend hit me and said “I don’t know you…”

How to tell if someone is AFKing in your BG

Afkers are getting smarter.

Blizzard has gradually been introducing some checks and balances for players who AFK,  reporting features – no honor debuffs ect ect.  

But Afkers are getting sneakier.  They no longer stand on the  Starting Rock ( like in EOS) or Stay in the Flag Room in WSG.  They move to a quite little place that is close enough to the action  for people to think that they are involved in the battle.

Untill you realise that yellow dot is Still in the water in AB.

I did a couple of EOS’s tonight and because its a tuesday and less people do BG’s (because they expect the servers to be offline for most Tues night but they are doing restarts at AEST 5am..  Woot Australian 5am) ,  I kept seeing some of the same people in my  Bg’s.

One BG we had taken MT and DR and were pushing onward  to try take FRR and BEF and I noticed that there were 2 yellow dots still on the rock.  We had had no one enter the BG from the start, and their buffs confirmed that they had been up there for the same time the rest of us where before the start.  So I say in BG chat. ” Report the AFKers”

One of the dots jumps off the rock, and goes somewhere..  I think nothing of it but remember the name. Then the next BG  I notice one of the names I had assumed where AFK, think nothing of it,   untill I look at the score board.   See 0 damage and 2 heals, and then I couldnt find her yellow dot at any of the towers, or on the battle map.

The final score shows that she was indeed AFK for the entire battle.  Or only moving every now and then so that she didn’t get the Auto AFK Debuff.

So Using the Scoreboard below, what can we tell.

 

Our AFK’er at the top of the list

The Obvious 0 damage,  2 heals. – but now she could have been gaurding a tower or a flag so low damage doesn’t automatically mean that your not ‘there’

0 killing blows -  She might have been a healer so that doesn’t necessarily means shes AFK – But healers normally don’t guard towers,  ( or shouldn’t)

2 deaths – now for a participating squishy – let alone a healer participating in a 23 min BG thats low,  but  it could have been luck,  the screenshot shows others at 2 deaths as well with damage and or healing.

But there is one telling factor that something is amiss. Even if the above points aren’t making you suspicious

She was there for the entire battle. You can tell this by the bonus honor she has.  Its the same as  most of the rest of the Alliance team.    The 2nd person on the list was probably only in that battle for less then half of the total time as you can see by his reduced bonus honor, and his flag carry shows active participation)

Now there is two other horde who maybe didn’t do as well as they could have, The druid at number 5 and the Hunter from Barth at  7th last,  they seems to have the least participation by looking at their kills, deaths, and damage/healing , but their bonus honor shows again that they were there for the whole battle. They both could have been guarding a tower and from memory I don’t think at any point in that BG we sucessfully took  FRR  and they could have been on gaurd.  But their Honorable Kills show that not many allies died around them either so we either didn’t try too hard to take the tower, or they weren’t as active as they could have been.  . 

The bonus honor also tells you that both sides had significant points up on the board at the finish.  From memory we were about 500 ahead.

I can also see that the horde  didn’t have any healers…   whereas we had 3 over 100k healing 

It was a good fight that one, and I’m sure if they had, had healers they would have done alot better.

I want an Alliance Rockband!

Been flicking through the Vids for the Level 70 Elite Tauren Chieftain’s new smash hit “Rogues Do it From Behind Contest that Blizzard had Winners and forgetting the Music Vids for a sec, which were well put together,
Why don’t the alliance have a similar performing Artist/Group?

An Elune Choir of Nightelves singing Enya Type Music?
Male NightElves – Have been sorta stuck with the Michael Jackon Label.. or maybe an Elvis
A Female Human group doing Alanis Morrisette Jagged little pill style?, or Hole, or Even Spice Girls.. ( I am so rolling Spicegirl Toons.. )
I can see a Human Male Boygroup doing a Seether /Snowpatrol/Breaking Benjamin or Nsync type group.
Female Gnomes could do the Mickey Mouse club
Male Gnomes could be the chipmunks
Female Dwarves – Would be doing Classic Theatre Type Music.. Singing songs from Chess or Broadway – or Even Opera
Male Dwarves – Monty Python ” I’m a lumberjack and I’m ok..
Female Draeni- Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce,
Male Draeni – Seal, Bryan Adams, Sting,

I know I’ve crossed some Genres there… but come on! I want Alliance Idol!
