2731  The Rest / General Discussions / The World Cup - do the Americans care? on: June 22, 2006, 03:02:35 PM
I'll be honest, I don't care so much.  I watched a game or two here and there.  It's not soccer, I just don't watch sports all that much with the exception of some college basketball and pro football.

However soccer is one hell of a good time to play.  I also played it till I was about 11 or 12 (my mom was kind of a soccer mom too).  If I find a random game playing this day that needs more people, I definitely jump in.
2732  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / WoW - 1.12 Coming Soon on: June 22, 2006, 02:42:35 PM
Quote from: "Ryos"
Incentive for world PVP's already in 1.11.  It's called, "Better honor at Light Hope's Chapel than grinding battlegrounds."  Man, we ganked so many suckers yesterday in-between owning crystals and getting raped by undocumented huge AQ40 boss changes.


What does killing the crystals do anyway?

Anyways, I quit WoW last week, finally cancelling my money drain account (barely played).  Once 1.2 hits, I may reinstall and reinstate.  We got a shitload of new transfers to our dead server (one of the reasons why i quit) and many major guilds transferred (such as "Fix Cthun or we quit" DnT).

From what I've heard, the cross realm BG system will absolutely rock if implemented flawlessly (chance of that happening, .001%).  This will absolutely rock in 60 BG's because it should limit 60 pug's in blues and greens verse epicced out guilds.  This should make for much more even matchups.  I can't see it doing that much in the 20-59 brackets except keep the levels closer to even on average.  What this should also do is limit stupid fucking forum bickering and eliminate topics as X guild rocks Y guild in BG since the group you face might be unheard of on your realm.  Better matches = less chances of other people afk'ing out.  I also wouldn't mind someway to fuck over the CP farmers who sit there and do nothing.  I am 99% sure nothing like this would be implemented, but it'd be nice.

The only thing I'm wondering about is exactly how will the bg's be implemented?  If I queue up, could I be thrown in with people from ANY realm?  Or will it be a bunch of people from my realm vs random people from another realm?  It'll be interesting to see.

World PvP might be nice.  I'll hold judgement until they release more information.  I wonder how this will effect normal servers, if at all, since they are always unflagged (everyone gets flagged when entering this area perhaps?).  Either way, it could be fun.  Seems like it would only effect 60's though.  Not much x<60 people could do against epicced out people.  I made a pre-made on the test realm and it taught me how much gear really matters.

As for the rogue review, I hope they don't get buffed too much.  I hate rogues (and i'm aware that 90% of the people on this forum play rogues). I wonder if it'll go back to being like back in the day when it felt like 20-25% of the realm pop were rogues.

If it is indeed ToD2 they are remaking (and not ToE), I will buy a psp just for it.  I always wanted to play it as well.

In addition, it was so liberating when I sold a shitload of my video games on Ebay.  Sure, part of it was so I could buy a bass amp, but it was great because then I felt like my monstrous backlog was no longer an obligation where I had to beat them all.  Gaming then became fun for me again, because it didn't feel like an obligation (and thus, like work.)


Yeah this actually helped me out a TON.  I had so many games that I needed to finsh that everytime I'd sit down to play something I'd feel like it wasn't fun, but more I was doing it just to get through it.  Hell I sold my cube and xbox and a good 90% of my PS2 games.  It felt real nice, I almost sold my PS2 but I'm glad I didn't cause I'm startin to get back into a few games.


yeah..  when i look at all the games come out in the fall, i'm kinda excited for them but at the same time not.  I still have DDS2 to finish (finally started making progress again) and Suikoden 5.  Grandia 3 is there too, but that's only if another one doesn't come out in time.

Right now, I wouldn't say it's a chore to play.  It's hard to get myself to sit down and PLAY, but once I do, I enjoy playing and have fun.  The only problem with this is that I don't make much time to play anymore.  In theory, I still like video games a lot.  It's just one of those things anymore where unless the game really grabs me, I seem to eventually ditch it (and maybe play later).  

Actually, I'm starting to think this next console generation may force me to quit.  I cannot justify dropping that much money for anything but a Wii anymore with my current amount of gaming.  I guess we'll see.

hahahahaha.  really great.   wasn't expecting that.
2736  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Phantasy Star Universe stuff. on: May 17, 2006, 01:05:35 PM
I really didn't know why people were salivating over this game.

I played PSO v1.0 for a bit and wasn't that impressed, but I was only able to play it offline so i'm sure that's why.

After watching some of these videos... I can say I'm 10x more intrigued than before.  I shall be keeping a close eye on this game.  Maybe play with some of you 'Fanners that get the Jp/us release.
2737  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / World of Warcraft OH MY GOD CURRENT EVENTS THREAD on: May 13, 2006, 03:01:49 PM
is blind completely unresistable?  because last night i charged a rogue being a prick to others who was about 15 levels lower than me and he hit me with blind 2 / 2 times that night.  kinda pissed me off.  i hope it's not completely unresistable because that'd be fucking stupid.  if it's two of the same levels fighting it's one thing, but when a 55 war charges a 40 rogue, that's another thing.
2738  Site Related & More / RPGFan: The Boards / Revealing spoilers - suggestion on: May 07, 2006, 12:11:50 PM
Well, probably my own fault.  Seems to happen with every fucking game i enjoy as of late - it gets spoiled somehow.

Anyway, whenever you search posts either by user or a topic, the spoiler box does not show up and cover the spoiler.  

anyway to change that?

Quote from: "The Darkrider"
I hope one of those "certain restrictions" isn't disallowing you to move a character from a PvP server to a PvE one.  I bet it is, though.


i'm sure it will be, and i hope it is.  Not really fair to go from 1-60 on a pve server than switch to a pvp server.  i guess im slightly biased because i've never rolled on a pve server.
2740  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Oh Blizzard, Blizzard, Blizzard on: May 02, 2006, 02:45:56 PM
ah yes, THAT ability.  On my priest when I wasn't in an end game guild (but we had lots of 60's), we often did ZG.  We had 2 priests generally, me being 1.  So I do remember getting that ability a couple times.  Never found out it's name because I was too busy healing (we weren't that good =p).

When i actually went to an end game guild, i wasn't anywhere near main healer so i didnt ever get to see that or what it was.  interesting.  i see the problems it can create.

I see the problems for Shams too.  Since they're getting a review as well in the next patch, maybe that will help them out there as well.

edit:  It has to be getting nerfed when they do this.  It's a last tier talent for a reason.  They have to be putting it on a longer cooldown timer, nerfing the amount of mana regen, or something.

i personally enjoy how 50% of the time I go to the forums that anyone links to I get:

We're sorry but there has been an error with your request. Please try again later.


Mother fucking turtle.

therefore, i wish i knew what you guys are talking about.

edit:  Now I do, finally got access.

I really don't know what to say.  Maybe I didn't find the right post.  It's just that innervate is a regular druid ability (non talent) at 40, right?  Even though I've done some end game, I can't say i'm that familiar with them.  Our guild never had more than 2 druids on any run we did (maybe 3, i just missed?).  Just aren't that many on our server.  I wonder if this has anything to do with all the bitching and crying that was done when 1.1 was announced and all the druids and shaman cried "druids will be obsolete now!!1"

Okay, bumped cause of this.

http://www.apple.com/macosx/bootcamp/

Apple is making a nice smart decision here. They're easily going to have a 10% market share by end of 2008, methinks.


heh, this is funny because a few of my friends who know i like macs, emailed this to me through the course of the week.  they were so quick to hate on macs before, but now they're like.. "hmm.. they have some nice audio and visual editing software... maybe ill buy one now".
2743  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Fuck WoW....I'm going home. on: April 08, 2006, 06:24:17 PM
Quote from: "Cauton"
This crap is still going on? I stopped playing WoW more than six months ago (on EU servers admitedly), and one of the reasons I left was because of constant server problems. Login servers were down, zones crashed, the mail system wasn't working, characters got stuck in loot position and so on and so forth. Not to mention that each and every time there was a patch the servers would be down for a few hours more than planned. There were always some "emergency fix" that had to go in before they could start them up again.


Yep.  1.10 patch just went live almost 2 weeks.  Everything you described pretty much happened after the patch.  I'm guessing the weather had something to do with it, but I know shit about programming so it's only a guess.
2744  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / need DDS2 boss help on: April 08, 2006, 05:35:19 PM
This is for a boss 2nd time in the ecc/ogg (or something) place.

Code:
I can't beat Heat.  I don't think he's supposed to be that difficult, but right now I don't have argilla, who was my main healer because she died (if she didn't, i don't want to hear otherwise).  So, i'm stuck with Cleo healing, but at this point he only heals about 80 with media, which is not nearly enough.

Anyways.. any strategies on beating him?  I tried using fire ward, but I still get pretty fucked up and I imagine it will take too long this way anyway.  I am learning a mantra with Physical Resist with Gale right now, but he's not that far into it and it's a level 5 star mantra.  Any tips at all?  This game has been on hiatus for awhile because I haven't been able to beat him, but I want to try and start it back up again.

.Blizzard has had almost a year and a half to get their system running correctly and in the past three months i havent seen one week go by without major problems like "OMG UNABLE TO CONNECT CUZ OUR SERVERS ARE BROKE!" or "OMG RANDOM WORLD SERVER CRASH! TIME TO REBOOT IT!"

Fuck Blizzard. Sorry guys, I'm done.


I agree.  It's ridiculous all the lag and server issues they have.  A lot of things are beyond fucked up (Dm & Hunters -- that's all that needs to be said).  I am very close to quitting myself.  I will definitely quit by the time summer rolls around (when in summer, i don't know).  

I hope the expansion comes out soon because I promised myself the day it did come out I was going to quit.  So hurry up blizz and release a buggy product too early (don't worry it'll fit in with the rest of your shit blizzard and probably < .1% will quit over it) so I can quit sooner.

I also had a 60 priest I was raiding with, but I quit him because I couldn't take all the lag at night.  I realize some was client side, but a lot was server side too.
