1. I will write more on my Dedicated server stance. I need to do some more reading to back up my argument, I want to consider things like the effects of language, and region on progression in raids, and arena.
If a dedicated real oceanic server did happen – than the player base becomes more concentrated – than language will affect who you play with – Eg just look at EU WOW. Servers and guilds have become ‘language – centric’. I guess I’m letting the cat out of the bag on an unwritten post – but I want to spend some time on the issue, and I think it’s big enough and important enough to present a well thought out case then just a random ‘ I don’t want….” Like I did in my previous post.
Do the majority of people who play in Oceanic actually need a server that will deliver more precise actions. Are we underrepresented in things like Arena, and progressive raiding, and would having less lag encourage more people to get serious about those things?
2. I’ve had a few attempts on LK in 10’s, but when the tank is tanking him in defile. We have issues. BUT! I killed the King on 25’s with my new guild. They are old hats at it. No I wasn’t noob enough to release when LK killed us all, though my complete and utter shock at the raid blowing up probably made me look like I hadn’t even read about the encounter. I did I promise! But being there and dying unexpectedly is still a massive shock because my first thought was something had happened to wipe the raid.
3. Devouring Plague spamming in BG is awesome. I can crit up to 4.5 K damage on a DP inital damage, and it’s not dispelable if I am spamming it chasing you across the BG. So shadow priest hot on your heals Shadow Word deathing you on CD, Doting you up with SWP, throwing a fiend at you, and spamming DP. You better be a healing class with hots, and a lot of health. Cause your going down. MWHAHAHAHA
4. I got globally muted on a vent. When I was on my healing Alt in a GDKP. It’s my fault. I told the player if he wasn’t going to stop saying a certain word repetitively I would ignore him. Imagine wiping on Rot Heroic, and all you can hear just over the raid leaders instructions is Pen*s Pen*s Pen*s Pen*s Pen*s Pen*sPen*s Pen*sPen*s Pen*sPen*s Pen*sPen*s Pen*sPen*s Pen*sPen*s Pen*sPen*s Pen*sPen*s Pen*sPen*s Pen*sPen*s Pen*sPen*s Pen*sPen*s Pen*s
It wasn’t even the word that annoyed me, it was the timing – and it’s repetitiveness. I wasn’t the first, nor the last to tell him to quit it, but I was the only girl who spoke. He was a vent admin. Result = Me globally muted for the rest of the raid.
That same raid, when another female spoke for the very first time after some discussions on why we were wiping on Princes, was told to “Shut up you W*ore” and some other choice words.
Yet regardless of what I think was undeserved treatment me and her still stuck the raid out, and got our share of the GDKP pot. It was a pug, but it was run by someone who should have better control because of the guild tag he wore – and he didn’t control not only the behaviour directed at us, but let the raid rip each other apart on various things the entire time we were in there.
This is where I wish recording vent conversations didn’t breach our telecommunications survellience acts ( topic for another day)
My principles are worth less than a pot of around 4800 gold each. But I wasn’t going to leave and reward them with a greater share. Then they would have won.
Would you listen to me if it wasn’t about WOW? I don’t really expect an answer, just that I have been adding as many non wow blogs to my reader as I have wow blogs, and I have found so many interesting people talking about stuff! I guess definitions of interesting vary between people.
No No No.. I not quitting Wow blogging I am as addicted to blogging as I am gaming.
My epiphany has been that it’s a little sad that my gaming experiences are more relevant, and interesting to an audience then thoughts on more important things. But I am sure those important things wouldn’t be half as entertaining.
