Humpday – Rants and Raves

Posted in Gaming with tags , , , , , , , on November 4, 2009 by Camron

Rants to the people who leave guilds after they joined them knowing it was casual. Specially if they are a group of good friends because they leave behind a group of good people in shambles. Makes it impossible to raid without pugging a few. I know I’ve harped about this before but it’s something that really bothers me in-game.

Raves to Scott and Randy at the instance podcast. These guys are the single reason that I am still playing. They keep it interesting and fun for me. Scott also has tons of other podcasts that he works on but it’s amazing that he finds time for all of them. Link to theinstance.net in the sidebar.

Happy Humpday!

Humpday Rants & Raves

[Rants] to the people who still don’t understand that there is a push to talk option on Vent. Ran a Naxx 25 group the other night and sure enough had two guys who sounded like they were playing from the same room. They were constantly yelling about the fights and daring each other to get as close to a mob as they could without pulling them. We had a lot of new 80’s from the guild in the raid and it made it impossible to explain trash pulls and boss fights. By the first boss we couldn’t get them to understand how to use the push to talk button on Vent. Problem fixed, *muted*.

[Raves] to the Spartan UI support forums. As I mentioned in a previous post I have been feverishly working on my UI and these forums helped me get the most customization out of my UI. They continue to update and listen to the things that their users are complaining about and make every attempt to allow us to modify the addon to reach the desired look we want.

Until next Humpday happy raiding!

Rants to the first player who decided to put “anal” in front of every ability in their spell book. This has been an epidemic that has now plagued Ysera’s trade chat for a full week, nonstop. I know we’re not the only ones dealing with it but it gets tiring putting up with this day in and day out. Blizzard could at least shoot some warnings out to these players.

Raves to the Tankadin who called our Heroic group OPed yesterday. First time ever I was in a group considered OPed. Although I was still 3rd on the DPS chart. Ok that’s not the true Rave this week.

Ever since Blizzard introduced 3.2 every player in the game has been running non-stop heroics causing the server to be overloaded and something that Blizzard never thought they would have to use was plagueing every player. What am I talking about? “Additional Instances cannot be launched at this time”. Props to Blizzard for being quickly proactive about the situaion. Much of the maintenance that has been going on for the past few days is to implement their new servers and software to prevent this from happening. Rumor has it this is also to prepare us for Cross Server LFG’s. Welcome one and all Ninja Looters from around the World of Warcraft. But that’s a rant for another day!
