I just want their stupid /ignore system to actually ignore the gold spammers.  Until they do that I will continue to report every damn time I get another one of those tells.

And also, it would be nice if there was the right-click->report feature like there is in LOTRO so you don't have to waste time trying to spell their nonsensical names correctly.

First off, grab that Spam Me Not mod. I think it auto-reports and auto-ignores and such, and actually has Mythic's backing.

Second off, anybody find it slightly amusing that when you fire up a petition, that it defaults to reporting a gold spammer?

That's true if you already have an appeal in the queue (which you probably do if you have spammenot running).  Only harrassment and cheating appeals can be made if you already have an appeal for some reason.

And I also don't like way Hiro is potray in Seaon 3. He can't trust his best friend and start to treat him bad because he might betray he in the future that might not happen? WTF?

Knowing the future tends to create the future.

I'm annoyed about how stupid Hiro has been all season. How many times has he let speedster get away? Why all the chit chat? Find the girl. Stop time. Take advantage of her, um, I mean take the formula back. Maybe tie her up and take advantage of her, or, um, you know interrogate her. Find out who she's working for.

Hiro can't freeze Daphne, that's what they showed in their first encounter.  She moves so fast that when he 'stops' time, she can still move.

One of the main plot lines in Season 1 was "Save the Cheerleader, Save the World" by keeping Sylar away from Claire. Within a couple of episodes in Season 3 they served up Claire on a silver platter to Sylar. WTF!?
It wasn't really the fact that if Sylar gets to Claire the world ends, it was if the chain of events set in motion happened as it was lining up to, then the world ends.  The Sylar/Claire thing was the keystone of the sequence of events, and it was prevented at that time.  Comic book logic ftw!

It's good to see the work.  While I have had some minor server issues it's mainly been little bugs that cause me the most trouble.  Damn, two weeks in and I'm having more fun now than a week ago and that's a great sign.  Anyway, glad they worked on /ignore as I'm only ignoring gold sellers and they kept sending even with the ignore.

everyone should be running the SpamMeNot mod.  works great and I haven't had any issues with it yet.  It was linked on the main page of warhammeronline.com

Quick tips:

1)  Trying to use a quest item that is in your inventory but can't find it?  I spent 45 minutes doing this before I figured it out.  There are actually three tabs in your bag/inventory (not two as it appears).  The half-circle thing on the top is your quest inventory -- look in there for the item you need
2)  The little circle to the top-left of the minimap is your "join scenario" button.  Click it immediately when you log on and join the scenario queue.
3)  Hit the "o" key (letter o - not zero) to open your social panel.  For some inscrutable reason, this panel doesn't have an on-screen icon like every other menu.

The on-screen icon is the group of 3 faces above your chat bar.

As far as the RvR or the group play goes that's all good and fine but a game should be fun getting to that point. 


This really confuses me since 'that point' is as soon as you start the game.  So the menus and character creation should be more fun? slywink  You can rvr literally as soon as you load in with a new character.

I loved it!  Mohinder has always been an irresponsible scientist.  He's always been more concerned about science than ethics, so I was not surprised to see him try the serum.

Overzealous, yes.  Wanting to give everyone powers?  That came out of the blue.  Wanting superpowers himself?  Another one out of the blue.

Mohinder was written completely out of character. 

They need new writers...stat.   icon_wink

Mohinder always seemed disappointed that he didn't have any abilities.  I always was under the impression that he would do anything to be 'special'  like the people he studied.  Didn't seem out of character in the slightest to me.

There must be an element of randomness to it then. I tend to get my pick of the same items over and over, though I'm usually stuck with lesser loot bags. The one time I did win a white bag it had a really nice set of boots though.

Green bags and below are always the same for that PQ.  Blue bags and up often have several items that could be in the bag.

You are not entirely correct Spar, though people do need to heal more than they do.

When faced with a Witch Hunter, Marauder, White Lion or Witch Elf you are FAR better off dps'ing them into the ground instead of trying to heal their target beyond hte first couple hots you throw on them.  The reason is that you will have less total time spent and they will die fast enough that you can then heal your target up afterwards.  You simply can't outheal the damage that those classes can do when they get rolling.  Not using your whole class' arsenal is a pretty boneheaded move.  Of course with your attitude I still can't tell if you're yanking our chains or really are that egotistical about your mad skillz slywink

The inability to go back to unlock tome entries can be a killer too since some of the tome entries unlock abilities.  This would mean if you accidentally outlevel a tier and didn't get your unlocks, you're SOL for that character for good.

I also want to give a heads up to the people who are/were planning on playing dest with me that I may still go Order.  It seems a fair amount of the people who were talking about going Dest have switched over to Order in the last month.  with the SH mostly broken, I have little reason to play it until it's fixed.

Tried an Eng again today for the first time in a couple months.  Wow, a lot has changed.  They are pretty kick-ass tough little SOB's now.

So far out of all the classes the only one that isn't ready for release is my favorite.. the SH.  Still mostly broken and very underpowered.

I'm one of the 'hardcore' pvp players.  I loved playing on Darktide in AC, Mordred in DAOC and SB.  I love FFA pvp and anything goes.  However, I hate the Open ruleset for WAR and will be playing on a Core server.

Three main reasons are:

1) there really is plenty of pvp on a core server
2) the chickening on Open servers will prevent you from backtracking to explore, unlock tome entries or to help guildmates
3) most mobs in the enemies territory will be friendly to you which gives you an obscene advantage.  So basically anyone who stays in their home turf is at a disadvantage in pvp which is exactly opposite of how it should be.

edit:  I'll add as a possible NDA breach that I've played on an Open ruleset server and the above are verified by myself slywink

hmmmm This may be the first MMO I buy without getting to try it first. You guys make it sound like a WoW killer or at least an equal.

I really want to play a black orc. The stuff Ive seen makes them look so cool.

For me, it does a lot of things that WoW didn't do, that I hated about it.  I wasn't a hardcore player, but new what bugged me.

So far, I don't feel that grind that WoW had.  The ability to level up NO MATTER what you are doing is so nice.  If I want to PVP I'll get XP, if I want to grind mobs, I get XP.. and if I want to PVE I'll get XP.

Plus the classes actually require playstyle, rather than gear (at least at this point).

It's fun.. and I see myself going further with this MMo than any I've tried before.

Overall I expect it to take just as long to hit max level (rank, not renown rank) as it does in wow, a big difference to me though is that I can have fun the entire way and never feel a need to rush once I'm at 20 or so.

I stand corrected, and the archmage is indeed a healer class.  However, in the PQ I was running, I was grouped with two of them, and I never saw a single heal, which led me to believe they're not a healing class.  Apparently they were being played by folks who just liked to nuke.

I know about the healer mechanic, which is why I was so surprised to find that there is no healer at the graveyard in the second camp in the high elves area, where you respawn after dying in the first PQ.  I right clicked every NPC in the camp, and not one offered to heal me.  Maybe there is one, but it was hidden so well that I couldn't find it.

I don't want anyone to think that I'm down on the game, since I'm not, and I'm really enjoying playing.  I just had a frustrating time and I literally had nothing I could do in-game for ten minutes, so I vented.

The ultimate irony is that the shield I got as a reward for grinding the PQ wasn't even useable.  Apparently the sword I had was a two-handed sword, and I didn't realize that the game uses the tag "great sword" to mean two-hander (why they couldn't say "two-handed" I don't know), and I don't have a one-handed sword at the moment.  Of course, 20 minutes after getting the influence shield, I got a blue shield drop off a mob that's much better than the reward shield, but that I also can't use.  slywink

Can't wait for head start so I can finally start playing Chaos and Greenskin like I want to.

Play with me and I'll not heal you!  (that will be because I will probably be a Squig Herder though and not because I don't like you smile )

If they're going to be gigantic PITA's about the beta, then I won't particularly trust them to handle release any better.

I doubt they're intentionally trying to screw anyone over. It's just that 9GB file + massive interest + thousands of beta slots opened simultaneously = slow downloads the day before beta. Mine downloaded fine...2 weeks ago.
This is definitely the case, you have a very large file and an incredible number of people trying to get it.  Why would you expect it to be easier than it is?  I had no problem getting mine, I started the torrent and then chilled for a day or so.  Haven't seen any other company do a bigger release of a free product that was as large and provide more downloads faster yet. slywink
