Indeed, if you don't know how to control yourself and if you don't know where your limits are, your basically SOL. But SpardaHK....Thank you for saying what you said earlier. I was bursting to say it but I think it would have come out a lot less kind if I had done it

I watched the South Park episode. I am basically a South Park addict (no...I am a South Park addict...I watch it everyday and half the stuff that comes out of my mouth is a South Park reference) and this was probably one of my favorite episodes. Did you realise that there were only five "power-gamers" in that episode, and everyone else was just a noob?...that ratio probably is quite acurate (exluding the legendary farmers) in regards to the WoW community

The boss fights are fun and getting to the bosses is fun. And yes, it will be mindless if you don't actually play the game, slaker.

Oh yeh, and in reference to others posts and PvP...it takes quite a lot of skill. I was never in a raiding guild until a month ago and although I do kill much quicker and have a touch more survivability, its basically the same thing as when I sported sub-par gear. You still have to play it just as closley as an FPS....


P.S.- I hate those people that go to raids and go and slack off while everyone plays just making the dungeon even harder (which is sometimes actually more fun). But you my friend are why raids fail. Takes like two healers to slack off and everyone dies. One tank to mis-position a boss and kill the whole raid. One rogue to pull agro and follow suit with the tank. If your gonna play the game, play the game. I watch South Park almost EVERY second while I play WoW...but I am also making sure that I get my part done.

Oh yeh, it also helps to be playing with a really enjoyable group of people. My guild is really freaking whacko and basically, we just joke around the whole time until we get to a raid boss where we all concentrate for the 5 mins and then go back to screwing around.
Yea I definetly wasn't playing my charecter. Especially during the parts when I had to coordinate all of the mages AOE via vent. I wasn't playing while I was monitoring my aggro and the aggro of other mages. Good day sir you loose

....lmao is all I can say to that one. You don't have to "Play" to say: "AOE up guys...burn it down" all you have to be doing is glance at the screen and realise that you pulled imps. and monitoring your agro??? Unless your a fully decked out mage going with a new MC guild, you shouldn't have a problem with agro if you press your icebolt key every cpl seconds and even it out with some wanding... Oh yeh, and I am sorry, you said ZG/MC right. The mages should automatically know to AOE when you get a pack of imps in MC or basically everywhere in ZG. Also, the day I see a mage pull agro off a decent tank without burning every cooldowown and all their mana will be a really bad day, because that means I would have died LONG before you.

Oh yeh, good day sir, you lose, _____.

Sorry, I decided to take that last part out and replace it with a blank line. You can fill that in for yourself. Or can you?

"So my friend let me play his higher level character and I had no clue what the hell to do. Needless to say I got ownt by a bunny rabbit. Which I personally think is dumb. This game requires no skill because people with better stuff, higher levels, more time playing, and faster reflexes always own me. But that doesn't mean it takes any skill to play it. I don't want to l2p, so I'm just going to hate on WoW"

i will make this point again:

Why pay money every month for a game when you can buy a game for £20 - 30 and play for free, gain rank (ie BF2 & soon BF2142)

Where is the excitment really?

BF2 - new rank, new gun, new pwnage
WoW etc - New rank exactly the same just a new spell or more damage.

Can you fly jets in WoW, no because that would be silly. Real gamers spend 4 hours getting to a part of their world while BF2 players jump in a plane bail out where they need to go and pwn and capture flag lol.

Yeah but look at BF like this, new rank new gun till you hit full rank same thing over and over.

New map comes out still same thing over and over also pay 15 - 10 for maps.

Now what oh guess wait for a new game.

Ok now WoW.

New rank new armor new skills new weapons.

New update more armor new maps new races new boss's new weapons.

WS pwn everyone and capture the flag.

Play AV pwn everyone one a huge map and capture the town.

Hit 60 time for end-game guild.

End game guild raids 40 man 40 people working as a team pwning everything.

PvP other races and raid towns.

You guys can hate all you want but xfrie report 16 million minutes of WoW played a day.. Why do you pay to play? I would assume it's because of the massive in game moderation, unlike BF2, if I call you names or use foul language something can be done about it (to the account vs acess to a server). Glitches can be reported and GM can help you. My friend's guild ran a high level instance and he said that one of the mobs glitched, so they reported it and the GM gave all the 'raiders' a chance to roll on the item they should have received. It can't be cheap to run all of those servers either. Do you think the BF2 servers are just free? Some one is paying for all of that.
You dont just get new ranks you get new spells too, there's a lot of them if you play through 60. Characters also have the ability to take on two professions at once and all of the secondary professions. You can't pilot jets but you can ride birds and such (restricted for now but I think the expansion will allow them to be regular mounts).

WoW doesn't end...Ever.. It takes a long time to level up and to rank up in the PvP standings. After you do that, you have like 7 other races to do it with, for now. The expansion will offer much more.

That's why I stopped trying to make valid points in the WoW threads (and yes every WoW related thread turns into a hate-fest) and just decided to laugh at them.
