the ranks are tied to anything you do on the site. browsing, posting, reading, downloading, watching videos. anything contributes to it.

Yeah, I was in a guild that had a DKP system like that.  It was really fucking queer..


I used to say the same thing back in the day. Oh, they use dkp for loot, thats so retarded, blah, blah. Well, after doing MC and BWL it really only the fair way to do. Granted doing that type of stuff isnt for everyone, but for the people that put in the time and effort it takes to run them, that's the best way to have it. It isnt that terrible.

Don't forget We Love Katamari!  
Due to the high volume of games being released in the coming months there will be many less people receiving Christmas gifts from me this year.  Bah humbug, I say.  Tongue


I found we love katamari at my target last night. The game is as every bit as good as the first one.

I played it and I love it as much as I loved the previous 3. I'm pretty thrilled they finally included make a player and the skis are a nice touch too. I'm definitely getting the game when it hits the shelves next month.

4731  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / question: WoW mods old and new on: September 04, 2005, 07:25:21 PM
I use CTmod still. www.ctmod.net for the main thing, also nurfed unit frames and spell alert. As far as solo'ing you can reach level 60 by doing quests. You never really have to step inside an instance, but it helps since you can acquire good equipment very easily. I always see people looking for groups in org, so getting a pickup shouldn't be a problem, it's staying away from the idiots that might,heh.

4751  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Jade Empire Credits on: May 03, 2005, 07:42:04 PM
Quote from: "Destructor"

It took me about a week or so of off and on gaming to finish Jade Empire. The game was so much fun to me I just had to keep playing it.


Same here, I tend to beat the shorter games while the longer RPG's I play until almost to the end and for some reason just stop. I still have Star Ocean 3 and Xenosaga 2 waiting to be finished, haha.
4752  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Jade Empire Credits on: May 03, 2005, 03:47:21 AM
I make it habit to watch the credits, especially if I enjoyed the game. It is little things like that, that make me glad I do so.
4753  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I was blind, but now I can see (EBGames rant) on: April 30, 2005, 10:44:16 PM
My ebgames rocks. I have done so much business some of the clerks even know me, haha. I'm often known as the "pre-ordered online" guy. They know about games and stuff. They generally ask me about the game i've played if i heard its any good and what not. When I picked up guild wars I talked with another for about 10 minutes who played the beta as well.

I've never encountered those stickers or the 2 dollar charge thing. In fact, they never even ask me about and its never wrong up. They also usually have plenty of copies avialable and get teh games the same day they ship. Guess i just lucked out.

Playing a character since day 1 doesn't endow you with any sort of credibility or omnipotence.  It just alerts everyone of your bias.

Besides, there is no good reason to have the shard system in place. It is simply a triple balance that is not justified, not even by Blizzard.


Totally wrong on this statement yet you state it as if it were a self evident fact.  The reason why warlocks need shards is because otherwise they would be DPS kings with a pet.  They have no downtime in large scale fights (life tap, life drain, first aid, etc).  What is to limit them to even the dps of a mage?  Nothing if they have no shards to contend with.  Shards are there for the very purpose of limiting their power.  

Without shards they have more dps than a mage, comparable aoe (hellfire is twice the damage, rain of fire is comparable depending on spec), no downtime, more flexibility in pets than a hunter, and the ability to make health stones that are on a separate timer than potions.  
Yep, no justifiable reason to limit the power of warlocks....



Never said I was the know it all on the issue. I said I am fully aware. The shard hinders us more than you know. All of the spells that require them have insane cool downs and mana cost. Summoning a pet, 10 seconds and over 1k in mana. Shadowburn, 15 seconds. How is that different from the mages fireblast? Warlocks have downtime, especially in pvp. We also have the worst downtime of any class upon res. You can't use a healthstone then make one right away and then use it. It is liek 4-5 minute cool down. I dont remember exactly, cause in large scale battles they dont matter. Not to mention to summon one is over 1k mana.

So You really should look at the class further before you do think the shards are ther for a reason. Shards do far more to hinder us than you know it. With laughable defenses, its stupid.

On the sheep subject, I do have a mage, lvl 43 in fact. Its great to stop the 2v1. Its great to get away from ganks as well.

I'm not trying to start a huge flame war or anything. But a lot of you guys are basing your knowledge on nothing. I have experience. I want to like my class. I think they are fun. I just want some defense and something modified about shards.

Oh yeah, the infernal.  Having it break is blizzards cop out on easy balancing. Its AoE is the only cool thing about it. Its quite easy to kill. Have it where it vanishes after a set time or something. It'll last like 4-5 minutes, has a 1 hour cooldown and a 45s reagent. Just not worth it outside of novelty or freaking out a raid of opponents.
4755  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW patch today on: April 22, 2005, 08:16:41 AM
I'd like to chime in on this warlock issue. Having played a warlock since day 1 and up to lvl 60 I'm fully aware of the problems.

First of all, fear has diminishing returns and is not guranteed to last the full 20 seconds. Fear also breaks on damage. What do warlocks? We dot, there goes our defense from fear. Same with seduction. Curse of Exhaustion simply is not worth spending those valuable talent points. Maybe if its buffed, but not right now. Besides any mage can easily dispell it.

The void walker sacrifice is good for melee. However, it doesnt scale properly to the damage that you need the protection from. So its gone quite fast. Not to mention the taunt for pve doesnt scale either. So hardly warlocks use it anyways past lvl 40.

Shards are vital, even in large scale battles. I cant tell you how many times I ended up 3:1 wishing i had my pet and could use real spells. Instead I was resorted to jumping around hoping someone would take notice eventuallly. In a perfect world I would like to just sit back and dot, but thats quite impossible due to the massive alliance imbalance.

Besides, there is no good reason to have the shard system in place. It is simply a triple balance that is not justified, not even by Blizzard.

The infernal powerful? Perhaps, but not really. I did the quest for more of a novelty than anything. You wont see any locks with it out for a few reason. Firstly, it'll kill you, how great of a pet. Second, it really is not that strong. It can easily be taken down when you would need to use. Third, the reagent does cost 45s and for the 2 above reasons thats quite high.

The complinants are more that justify. It is not a matter of skill as much as a lack of options to do anything. I just cant understand why Blizzard is continuingly nerfing us when we are one of the weakest classes in the game. Just rid of the stupid shard system and give a banish player that works like sheep. There, once thats done fix our broken talents. Not hard, but apparently Blizzard's too inept to actually think of that. Inside they have Eyonix post about once a month saying they are looking into the issues with no further updates.

4758  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / IGN = Jade Empire 9.9 on: April 09, 2005, 04:10:12 AM
I've given up on taking game sites reviews as is. I am sure most would agree that player reviews are the best. That said, I just cant stand IGN as a gaming news source. They are just god awful and a joke.

To me, these reviews just tell me what to expect and more of a final impression of the full version. Still, its a bioware game. Its a new universe. The combat is fun as hell. And its a bioware game. So of course it'll be good.
So long lumines, you have been replaced smile
