A 4 things for Friday thing

( there was 5  – but number 5 got it’s own post)

1.Corporate Raider

I am really loving Looking4More ‘s Corporate Raider  mini comics

He is going places

Vote to Kick

and My Favourite  Raiding the Workforce

Who says Wow and Corporate Slavery doesn’t mix?  I shall remember that one every time I am in a meeting. 

2. We got a Pony

As Matticus Said today  “Ghostcrawler did promise us a pony”  and we got one via the Celestial Mount. It’s pretty and the Mini XT Pet is cute.  And it happened when I was asleep.  If your game enough to wait in the queue which wow.com reported at being  7 hours    with 71338 people in queue, aprox 5 hours ago – with an update saying now there is  140,000 people in queue. 

If it granted me 310% Flight speed.  Sure I would lean more to buying it.  I’m getting something pretty and something with a use.  However it only goes as fast as your highest flying speed you have learned –  and thats not likely to change  for me at the present time, and besides  the only flying I have been doing lately has been is from Dalaran to ICC  so it’s not like its a massive distance anyway.  The rate at which people have been buying it though means it will still be common enough for it not to be a special.  It will not be a ” Oh wow did you see that love rocket.”

Now I need  remember who I wanted to comment on I shall have to tell them.

4. Raiding with a substance impairment

Theres enough on that topic to justify it’s own post   –  but I already did that  in Raiding Wet   I’ll be judgemental on the basis that your enjoyment is impacting on mine.  Yes I have drunk/ been drunk playing WOW.   I even asked to be let off the hook from a raid because I had been to Octoberfest all day, but sometimes I get so annoyed at a wipe – and someone asks “what happened”  and then someone giggles “Sorry guys..”   or slurs or gets up to get another drink or cocktail  between wipes – How do you take them seriously because I know their reactions speeds are slow, that they aren’t thinking as fast on their feet,  and adapting to changing raid circumstances, their judgement is impaired.  And there is a BIG difference between a couple of beers and 10 beers / 10 cocktails/The whole bottle. I know it’s a game  – your allowed to have fun – your home – blah blah blah  and no it’s not just been pugs.

Though the drunk druid on Wednesday night seemed to heal better the drunker she got. – Just that the raid got slower as people got distracted – and inappropriate comments were encouraged  to the point where the R word was used –  and that lead to what  R wasn’t  – which then made me say on vent.  “You have two Girls in the Channel – this is not appropriate”

    Ugh, drunk raiding. I’ve been tipsy a few times while raiding and I hated it. I just felt slow. Maybe if I was drunker I’d have not cared, but “suck so much you don’t care” seems like an awful idea.

    It’s the “just a game” attitude taken to it’s logical and stupid conclusion. Can you imagine a local basketball league and you’re in an important game, and someone shows up too drunk to play well? Or even just practice; showing up drunk when performance matters is just stupid, even if it’s a game. When other people are depending on you, you’re being an inconsiderate ass if you ruin yourself like that. So I applaud you for not raiding when you were too drunk.

    I had to do a Google search for the r-word in Australia. All I found was recession, which doesn’t seem to have much to do with whether women are around or not. In America, at least where I am, there is no extremely offensive r-word. A slang page had an r-word as what seemed to be a synonym for the f-word. That might make sense.

      If the r-word is what I think it is (pretty sure I do too)I have to agree with you 100%. People spamming in trade chat for ICC/TOC/TOGC pugs have been using it a ton lately on my server. (eg. LFM ICC25- want 5600GS R$#@ DPS- please goto North bank for inspection)

      One time some guy forming another group had another similar message except he wanted R$#@ HEALS! I called him out on trade- asking what exactly were R$#@ Heals? If that meant the healers were not supposed to heal?

      Not a big fan of the sparkly pegasi- especially since so many on my server have it (I think I saw close to 20 in Dal last night.) I just don’t think it’s that great looking.

    I gotta know, what IS the r-word? The only degrading r-word we have in Canada is ‘retard’…

    come on… ” We totally R…. that team” Omg I just got my face R………

    The r-word took me a second or two, but figured it out. Funny thing when I first started raiding the guild had just gotten a new raid leader and he actually put up a great do’s/don’t post. And that was in it on the don’t’s.

    I too get annoyed when people raid drunk, maybe if it is farm material, maybe ok as long as your not annoying with it. But generally the only people not annoyed with drunks are others who are drunk or at least tipsy.

    And sadly I will most likely be giving blizz an additional $35 dollars this weekend.

    Thanks for the links! You blew our previous record for daily hits out of the water. Though you missed the most recent one that I posted friday: cc me the minutes

    The steed is a great mount for a few reasons:

    1) It does scale with speed. So at 20, 40, 60 and 68 you pay the trainer and keep your mount.

    2) It’s cross faction. Got a new alt thats on a different faction? Hey presto at 20 you are ridin!

    3) Changing server for other friends? Hey presto at 20 you got a mount.

    Its a no-brainer from that point of view.

    As to raiding drunk, I MT for my guild and got shitfaced at someone’s bday party from the guild. We then proceeded to bland band hero. I sucked. Everyone agrees that me not raiding drunk is a good thing…
