WoW’s unpleasable fan base strikes again!

To listen to the whining in Timeless Isle general chat, you’d think that Blizzard has never before created an easy way to get gear at the end of an expansion and this is the WORST thing EVAR to happen to the game. We’ve been here before, though, at the end of every expansion to date.

More geared potential raiders means more raids, shorter queue times, and better raid progress for everyone, and at the end of an expansion that has been pretty alt-unfriendly, it’s exactly what we needed.


  1. Very true to how some people act, and I have to wonder if it is internal conflict between the ego and the desire to succeed within competition (aka, people just being multi-polar on the issue) or simply trolling. There are also a few cases of somebody doing it as a joke. Goodness knows WoW has enough people at each point mentioned that one need not look far to find them!
    Ultimately, if you are using an online game to feed your ego in some way, shape, or form, there is going to be a lot of drama around you. It can be a problem, and there are probably people who should seek help for this (you should feed your ego with a reasonable amount of self worth, and games can be part of that, but extreme is extreme!)
    Meanwhile, I must add that ignore lists exist for a reason. That reason is not always self-centered egotism, but when it is I ignore!

    • Thank goodness for the ignore list! Mine has quite a few permanent residents.

  2. It’s just so awful when special snowflakes find out they aren’t so special anymore.

    Should I link the video of the guy with the accent who said that less than 1% of players seeing 40 man Naxx and Sunwell was a terrific thing now?

    • I think that’s the only thing to do at this juncture.

  3. What I think is ironic (refering to the example of the 1% 40 man Naxx) is those that complain the loudest, if the situation was as they wanted with only leet ppl with the purples, wouldnt be the ones in that 1% anyway (maybe there is a cartoon in that, you can have it for free :D. )
