Maz, you should just download a respec mod. Saves you some time and effort.

Also, been playing Darksiders 2 recently, and have this awesome track stuck in my head:

That's an awesome track.

I recently stumbled across Imagine Dragons (the only good thing about the show "Beauty and the Beast" (2012) is that they use good music), and I really like some of their music. Since we're talking about Assassin's Creed (yes, we are), it's also relevant to mention that their song "Radioactive" was used in an AC3 trailer.

Hmm. Skyrim is still €50 on Steam. I may get it if it goes on sale at some point. You know, if I get bored of and/or finish Assassin's Creed.

If you go to reddit.com/reddits, you can sub/unsub there.

It'll also let you see the popular reddits, though keep in mind the most popular ones are the default.

Oh, no. Aethien, Theophany. Aethein, Theophany. One must be wrong. No, that would be the equivalent of dividing by zero. Neither can be wrong . . . no, one must be wrong . . . no . . . cannot . . . illogical . . . does not compute . . . [we need a nuclear explosion smiley]

Seriously, I wonder if that would work even if I don't log in? Because I don't log in. Unless I want to post something. Otherwise my daughter might check my profile and see what subreddits I browse. Although, there's probably a way to check anyway.

And Aethien, Danes + Fish = BOING!?!

Same. Then I started posting in r/Watches (duh), and my most recent addiction has been r/EDC (which is pretty interesting if you ignore all of the stupid people that think carrying a handgun is necessary).

And of course I'm subbed to MFA, even though I don't contribute much there, and tend to ignore everything but their "inspiration albums," because most of them are @#%^ing retards who don't know how to dress ("durr CDBs, dark jeans, and a OCBD or GTFO").

There was a visual basics guide posted on MFA somewhere this week I believe. That was actually useful. And they are technically right, they're just often terribly narrow in their views.

Also /r/beer, /r/beerporn and the SFWporn subreddits are awesome.


And another new BG Theo? Is it actually a fun BG this time or another retarded piece of **** like the last bunch?

Ah yeah, I saw that. The Spring/Summer visual basics guide? There was also a jacket/overcoat basics guide last week I think.

And yeah, the two new BGs are actually a lot of fun. Temple of Kotmogu (the one I'm in) actually requires a lot of skill. Basically there are four orbs that you hold to gain points (like resources in AB), and based on where you are with the orb, you gain more points. If you stand in the middle of the map (an open pit with only two staircases leading out), you get maximum points. So there's a lot of strategy in the beginning in getting orbs as well as taking the middle.

To add to it, the longer you hold the orb, the more damage you do (I was doing 50k crit Arcane Shots by the end, where my normal is ~20k crit), but the more damage you take. Most people die after a few seconds of being focused, so you have to be on your game with your defensive cooldowns (and spirit beasts are almost required for hunters unless you have amazing healers).

Silvershard Mines is actually my favorite BG, though it's only shortly ahead of Temple. Basically 3 carts track away from the central hub with a ring outlined around them. You stay in the ring, you make progress towards owning the cart. The objective is to own the cart as they go into the end of their track, capping the resources that the cart carried. Even better, the north and south tracks have switches on them, and if they're toggled before the cart gets to them, the cart takes about twice as long to cap. There's a ton of strategy, especially because the map is basically long hallways so there's not a whole lot of LOS going on.

Yeah, they're still pretty **** powerful. KFC is probably still their best comp in 3s, but they're still beastly healers. That was the only person I had trouble killing last night in the ToK game, the resto shaman on the other team.

I really just do BGs now. Arena wasn't that fun unless I was playing with RL friends, and BGs are a lot more fun most of the time.

I've also found that I don't really need the high-end gear in BGs simply because most people are really, really bad.

Oh, I'm not near-invincible. If I went into arenas, I'd get my **** handed to me once I was in the 1900s or so.

It's the thing that I like most about WoW PvP: that gear doesn't matter as much as skill. Having my stage 2 upgraded epic weapon helps most definitely, but really it's about having the most resil and a decent weapon and then having skill.

Most of the people I beat are better geared than I am. That's just a simple fact. I'm better than they are though, via skill.

And that's what I like about it.

That was one of the nicer things about it. But as someone who never really could play consistently enough to do arena, random battlegrounds lost their luster fairly quickly.

The thing that has really saved random BGs for me has been the blacklist function, where you can "thumbs down" two BGs (other than the call to arms) and you won't have them come up in your random BG queue.

I haven't played WSG or SotA for a **** of a long time (the only times I play them are honor weeks).

Strand of the Ancients and Isle of Conquest (which I actually like since Alliance wins 9 times out of 10) I think are the only ones.

Wintergrasp was GODAWFUL though. They just recently made it so that 90s can go back and it blew my mind that people actually wanted to go back to that ****

Strand is the worst BG ever and IoQ is awful as well since I was Horde. Which also meant that I pretty much always lost AV but at least you could PvP there without those **** vehicles.

SotA was pretty nice, at least from what I remember. My Druid had a field day in there back in the days. People weren't used to a Feral with mad shifting skills. Of course, Blizzard put a stake through the heart of that bit of old fun as well. Can't even begin to imagine how boring Feral PvP must be these days.

Haven't played my Druid since I bought the expansion. I felt like a Rogue in one spec and a Warrior in another, and I couldn't shift between the forms anymore. Well, I could, but it was pointless, because you were gimped beyond help. The whole versatility thing was sort of gone, which killed the class for me.

Playing a Warlock now. She's in her 40's and it's fun. I had a blast with the Warlock class pre-expansion (post-patch) and the Demonology Warlock is still the most fun I've had since I started playing again. Brewmaster Monk is a close second, Mistweaver Monk a very close third. Overall, this expansion has been meh. Pandaria is kinda cute, but pretty much just more of the same stuff. The voice acting is a nice improvement, though. The MoP content patch was horrible. At least for my main characters..

Pretty much, yep.

Maz, I have the opposite opinion; this expansion has been pretty great for me, primarily because I have stuff to do other than PvP. I really liked Operation: Shieldwall's story (some of the dailies were a bit **** but that's okay), and PvP is in a pretty good state right now.

I was referring to the quantity, not the quality. There is voiced dialogue happening when you talk to some of the NPCs in Pandaria. They started doing it in Wrath of the Lich King, I believe, with Arthas showing up every once in a while to threaten you. And that troll in Zul'Drak, what's his name...

Theo, I'm not saying the expansion was bad, just a bit underwhelming, considering the price tag. The patch was the major thing and it was free. You paid for five more levels and Pandaria. If you remove the five extra levels, it's a content patch. So five levels is what stood between "content patch" and "$40 expansion". You'd think Blizzard was part of EA.

Or, you know, you've just been playing WoW for so long now that the new stuff doesn't feel like new stuff anymore because it's not all that different from the last 3 expansions.

I mean, you can't play Monk without the expansion. So...

I don't know, I don't really separate the expansions from their pre-patches. It's pointless to be like, "well the pre-patch was awesome, but the expansion itself sucks" because the pre-patch IS the expansion. You're not going to sit at 85 with the patch once the expansion is out while all of your guildmates and friends level to 90.

That five levels of content is actually a lot.

Edit: also, I found r/shutupandtakemymoney today. Already bought something. Some people use reddit for good (?). I use reddit to spend money, apparently. Smiley: rolleyes

Nobody uses Reddit for good. It's all to waste someone's time and/or money.

And I don't need SUATMM, droog has pretty much that effect on me already, from city maps that you don't fold up but crumble because folding never works anyway to probably the most gorgeous cognac glasses ever and a wood and chalkboard Macbook for your kid(s).

Except Blizzard's stuff actually works.

Logged into SWTOR last night for the first time since my subscription lapsed and started using all of the unlocks I purchased earlier. Unlocking all the stupid stuff: hide helmet, companion gear customization, crew skills, etc etc. In the end I had everything unlocked except the purple gear. Then I switch characters and notice the "hide helmet" isn't working, I switch back to the first character and it isn't working there either. I peruse the forums and find out this has been a problem for several weeks now. Some of the account-wide unlocks aren't functioning properly. Of course I can't be helpful and submit a ticket...

At that point I remembered why I ended my subscription. Loved the game, but I came across more bugs like that in 3 months of SWTOR than in 5 years of WoW. If I decide to pay $15/month again, WoW has got my money.

Strand is the worst BG ever and IoQ is awful as well since I was Horde. Which also meant that I pretty much always lost AV but at least you could PvP there without those @#%^ing vehicles.

The only saving grace about SotA is that it's fast. Hop on a turret and CC stuff if you can't. Not really what I'm after either, but the occasional wasn't run wasn't bad. Those times it was the weekend BG though I wanted to claw my eyes out.

For my money the worst was Warsong prior to the time limit. God the 1 hour stalemates... Smiley: facepalm

Aye, the stalemates weren't particularly fun but at least it's PvP.



Anyways... just finished Brotherhood. My god do those **** know how to do a cliffhanger. I wonder when the next AC is going to be released because I don't quite feel like waiting half a year or more after these cliffhangers. 2 more games to go though.

True that.

I guess in retrospect there were some fun stalemates. You get to 2-2, have a number of close saves and tense moments, and it actually was pretty entertaining even after 45 minutes in there.

The worst were 2-0 camping parties. You have one side get 2 captures in the first 5 minutes and precede to graveyard camp the other side for an hour. The camped side never has a chance and it goes downhill from there. People enter and leave just as fast, with such high turnover it's impossible to even mount a counter-attack anyway. The other side has fun for the first 15 minutes and spends the next 45 arguing about whether it's better to camp or just cap and queue up again.

Didn't like being on either side of that really. Smiley: frown

Also, cliffhangers are both awesome and annoying at the same time.

Have you played AC? I think I might have just gone with infuriating if I didn't already have the next game lined up.

Preach it, brother. I've come across a bunch of bugs I couldn't report. Removing in-game customer support for freebies is the most stupid thing I've ever seen.

I'm also slightly **** off at them. I had 6 characters, but was only allowed 2 as a freebie, so I deleted 5 of them, so I could create a new character (a Bounty Hunter). Not two weeks later, BioWare decided to allow freebies 6 characters, but because I can't access customer support, I can't have my characters restored. Smiley: facepalm

Yeah exactly, I get not having access to ideal customer support or something. You know, take away the live support or the phone-in option or something. But not allowing bug reporting is just shooting yourself in the foot.

I shouldn't have problems earning enough credits to re-purchase the unlock if need be, but it really made me question whether or not it was worth it. I mean until that point I was planning on continuing to give them some money for weekly content access etc, and I'd just spend the tokens when I got the urge to play. Now I'm too irritated to even want to consider it. Smiley: glare

Yeah, the cliffhangers don't really get any better.

Though at the end of Revelations you finish Ezio's story, so at least that's tied up.

Well, they've progressed to the 1800's now with AC3. Maybe they'll do another game with Connor during the French revolution or something but after that... Can't be too long before we get a full Desmond only game to wrap up the series, no?

That said, I haven't started revelations yet. I need a small break from the marathon AC gaming over the last month and a half.

An AC game set in a modern city would be awesome.

By the way, I'm looking for a game I once saw a trailer for. Basically, you're some wizkid hacker with a cell phone that allows you to hack everything electronic in your area, from other cell phones to traffic lights and so on. Not sure if it's been released yet - I think it was a beta trailer I saw. Looked pretty interesting.
