  1. Darkrasp, if you're becoming a solid developer, please look into switching careers and getting a full-time job being a programmer. Don't work a job that kills your body when you obviously have the ability to be something way more rewarding.
  2. I read too many chat logs that suggested Shenna was taking x amount of money per month and paying for herself and her family to live. Also bragging about 'not having to work anymore' or some such nonsense.
  3. We all wish that everyone with a huge stake in any promising project would continue to do it for free and without corruption, but that's just not how the world works. Typically, if a smart person finds a way to take advantage of something for self gain, then they are going to do it. In my opinion, Crogge is no fool; just someone who found a way to make it all worth it for himself, regardless of the consequences for the rest of the player base. It's definitely not a commendable act in any way, but not one that I'm particularly surprised about, either. It's just the way things are, and will probably continue to be. I still think Shenna can DIAF, though. Elysium complained that they weren't getting enough donations. HAH! Yeah, right.... when you have a monster's hand in the cookie jar, that's exactly what happens. What a pure piece of shit.
  4. Am I the only one that doesn't think Crogge is a huge villain here? I get that what he did was morally wrong, but after all the work he put into these projects, it's not surprising that he wanted to find a way to monetize it so he could get something out of his time and expertise. As a person who works in the IT industry, I can tell you all right now that the kind of work Crogge does is thankless and can be extremely stressful at times, so I think, if anything, he should still be thanked for his contributions, even if he had some 'side business' that he was using to make it all personally worth it for him. It's not like he was truly hurting anyone. I understand that the playerbase feels 'betrayed' by his actions, but he's a very talented individual who can't be expected to just do all this for free day in and day out. Shenna, on the other hand, can go fuck herself. Stealing donations from people who thought they were contributing to the upkeep of the server but were instead making it so she could just sit on her ass along with her family as well. That is a disgraceful act and the fact that some of them tried to defend her for it is ludicrous. What the hell did Shenna even contribute to the project? lol
  5. Americans deal with 100-200 ping playing on EU hosted servers. What exactly is the problem? It's not that bad.
  6. I enjoyed Vanilla a lot, but I think it would have to be taking the Dark Portal to Outland.
  7. I don't think the playerbase will be that weak, to be honest. A lot of players on Elysium are fed up with the staff bullshit over there and are looking forward to Crestfall now.
  8. Yes Hops, but the difference is that you're not fighting things where your weakest skill takes off 25% of the target's max HP. PVP is horribly broken number balance wise in Vanilla. Player output scales way too well; health cannot keep up. Also, Hops, just as an FYI: you don't like the PVE server because it fractures the player base, but there are a lot of players who are going to roll PVE, and wouldn't bother playing at all if they only had the PVP option, so the fracturing argument isn't that strong.
  9. Because Wow's PVP isn't that great, sorry. The number balance is terrible and any game where you can click on your target to put a circle below their feet and all of a sudden all of your skills hit without having to aim anything is not a PVP experience I'm interested in.
  10. Not sure if this is being planned at all, but anyone working on a database that will show the before and after stats for the items that will be affected by the pre-AQ and AQ patch release?
  11. This post is so spot on I can't even begin to put it into words. I wish I could up rate it multiple times.
  12. I don't want them to take pots/elixirs/flasks out of the game; I just want them to be more balanced in general. World buffs are stupid, though, and I personally wish they would get dispelled on entering a raid instance. If Vanilla had the guardian/battle elixir mechanic and no stacking with flasks, it would be ace, but because it doesn't, the grind for endless supplies of potions and elixirs and flasks never ends. It's not enjoyable at all. Is raiding enjoyable? Sure. Grinding for consumables or gold endlessly to keep up isn't.
  13. That doesn't make something 'unique and challenging.' It makes it 'a colossal waste of time.' Time sink does not equal unique and challenging.
  14. I'm sorry, but I can't see any reason for them to be banned for this. Developers are keeping rolling ignites in the game because it was blizzlike in vanilla, so why should they be banned? If they don't want mages to abuse ignite stacking then they should patch it like blizz did in the pre-TBC patch or whenever it happened. There's absolutely no reason to penalize them for something that every vanilla dev under the sun is leaving in. The issue with Power Infusion, though, does seem a little bit fishy, but is there any guarantee it wasn't like this back in retail vanilla? If anything, all this does is make the developers of vanilla emulation look more ludicrous for allowing this to go on when they know that people are smarter than ever when it comes to mechanics that existed 12 years ago. If it were me, I would give them all a slap on the wrist and confiscate their loot and rep gains for that entire AQ40 run (essentially making it so they lose a week of AQ40 loot) as punishment, but nothing more. Permanent bans for taking advantage of a blizzlike feature just doesn't seem right, no matter how ridiculous it is. This needs to be patched if it's so bad just the same way developers are patching Dire Maul farming runs, etc.
  15. They're having another sale now for the end of year, and I just picked up Dragon Age: Origins Ultimate Edition for $5. WHAT. A. STEAL!
