  1. Favorites: Humans, mostly because the medieval-fantasy style is most prominent with them. Stormwind is my favorite of all the cities (with Thunder Bluff being second) which is mostly due to it's architecture and style. Dwarves. Short humans, beards, healthy dose of humor and a pretty nice city. Quite the likeable bunch. Infact, even if it's simply because human's can't be hunters, I'm very likely going to roll a dwarf. It'll not my first choice when it comes to race but it will certainly do. Worgens. Well, sort of... they could have done a bit better with them in my opinion. I'd get into explaining why I think so but that seems like something that would need it's own thread. Maybe someday. Either way, werewolves are one of my favorite mythological creatures and worgens are obviously as close to that as we're ever gonna get in WoW. I'll take it. I also don't think they'd suffer much of a quality drop if they lost the bone jokes... I don't really "dislike" any of the races so I can't really make a list for that. At the very least I like them all for adding diversity. If I had to choose one I'd say Gnomes and that's simply because they can be warriors for whatever reason. Why? Look, I don't think it flew over anyone's head that this is a fantasy setting where strength doesn't exactly work like it does in the real world, however the fact that a Gnome can be just as strong as a Tauren is a bit off, all things considered. Out of all class/race combos Gnome warrior is the most ridiculous. And not to mention how I'll constantly be hearing that going Gnome is the only real way to play Mage. The problem here stems more from the people playing the race rather than the race itself but it deserves a mention. I have some dislike for Undead(players) for the same reason. "Undead Rogue? You mean 90% of the Horde's population?"
  2. I suppose achievements would indeed be nice if they were actual achievements like things stated above. Server firsts being the most ideal example. Even then, the addon would have to stay away from things like "Kill raid boss X". Achievements that eventually everyone doing end-game PVE will get but will still get shit tossed at them if they don't have them yet. And of course the addon would have to exclude the absolute laughingstock that are the achievements that everyone will get. "Reach lvl 10", "Kill a boar", "Make a character" etc. The only way I can explain to myself why such achievements ever even became a thing is the good old "instant gratification" issue. Of course in this case it's much more extreme. Or maybe game developers have a very special sense of humor. And that's pretty much it. I'd still like it if things like "kill 100 tauren in a day" remain little challenges I set for myself, keep track of on my own and eventually tick off as completed when I finally get them done. In my opinion such an addon should only cover the universal stuff like server firsts. "Gee Velox, if you're gonna be so picky why don't you just learn how to code or whatever and make your own addon?"
  3. I personally think the game is better without achievements. And I'm not talking about just Vanilla. Want achievements? Make your own. All you need is a txt file. You can give them cool names and ludicrous requirements too if you must. Then just tick em off once you "get" them. No addon needed. One of the things that I love about Vanilla (and other games that lack achievements) is that instead of getting a flashing "achievement get" notification every 5 minutes I'm expected to just play the game and decide what is and is not an achievement for me. Don't get me wrong, I don't completely avoid games with achievemens, infact I do go on acheivement hunts from time to time, but in an open ended game like VWoW I really can't see how built-in achievements are a good thing. You just killed 100 enemies in 30 minutes! Is this an achievement for you? Yes? No? You decide. Why is a flashy popup needed here? Of course this is just an opinion and nothing more. As long as this addon affects only those that use it I'd have absolutely no problem with it. That being said, I can already tell that it won't be like that. At least depending on the kind of achievements that get added. In the end this'll just be another e-peen booster and nothing more, unless the achievements are all things like "gather 5 non-combat pets". That brings up the other point I made. Getting 5 pets isn't an achievement for me, thus I would hate to get a popup trying to tell me it is. It might be an achievement for someone else though. And if it is it's better if they realize this on their own. Back to the e-peen thing... "You don't have X achievement? Everyone has that achievement! /gkick" ^Unimportant rant^

  6. It takes strength to grit through a loss like that and continue working on something like this. The development of CF and even writing this update right here. I'm sorry for your loss and I thank you for continuing work when most others would take a few days off. Stay strong. On a lighter note, as per usual I skimmed through the technical stuff since even if I understood some of it I'd have nothing to add. All sounds great from my clueless point of view. Ignorance is bliss and all that. Grats to the new beta testers! Let me just add you guys to my list of people to insult if CF ends up sucking. Yes, that's the name of the list. The list of people to insult if CF ends up sucking. In all seriousness congradulations and thank you for taking up the job! You don't need me to tell you how awesome you are for helping with the project but I'll do it anyway. You're awesome! Now uhhh... don't muck it up, eh? kek Update is appreciated as always!
  7. What do you mean by "visit"? How many times I open the page? Once a day and then I just don't close it. Or do you mean how many times I look at the page? Yes, I do need help. Jokes aside, It's not at all surprising for any of us to frequent this place more than is expected. Pretty sure we all have it figured out that this place isn't going to be such a haven forever. At least that's the way I see it. I'm sure a lot of us are spending so much time here now so that we don't have to dig through the endless piles of toxic shit later in order to find just one decent post. Plus, seeing my shit got upvoted is hype as fuck. There's just something really good about knowing I made someone blow some air out of their nose or slightly nod in agreement. TL;DR: I spend so much time here because I enjoy spending time with the community. Once the good sailors get drowned in the toxic water I'll probably be here a lot less. Or perhaps I'll still be here shoveling shit looking for the good stuff at the bottom.
  8. Community manager, eh? I hope it pays well. kek Congradulations and a big thanks for taking up such a role. You're helping pretty much everyone here. From us, the community with a lot of questions to the other members of the team who would otherwise have to answer these questions. Outstanding amazing as always. /salute
