Team Rocket’s blasting off again!

Well it’s been a while and frankly it’s hard to get back into the flow of doing something when you’ve had a pretty lengthy break, so pray forgive me if this isn’t some mind-blowing dramaz that you hoped it would be. It made me sad too. It’s still pretty cool however to think the age-old premise of having nothing better to do than wander round and gank people still holds true even in this late stage of the game. Bodygank of Sunstrider is one of these people, going even to the great lengths of bothering to take and upload screenshots of his prey, who may or may not be randoms greys. In his own words, this would be rough justice because:

First of all, like i’ve already said before in the past this is post patch 3.1 there is duel spec and this is a PVP server, theres no excuse for not having a PVP spec and gear in world and if you do want to walk about with a PVE spec then you have no one to blame but yourself.

Truer words have never been spoken. I guess. I remember with great hatred the days of running through Blackrock Mountain to try and get to my scheduled instance, only to have some turd decide they have nothing better to do than camp people endlessly. this would usually by rogues mind, so I guess the guy gets some kudos for being a Priest. I guuess he’s also one of those polarising figures that you either love or hate, with a variety of fanboys circle-jerking and calling him great while other ‘special people’, as referred to by their guildies, get great thrills out of killing him with their mates. If anything, he’s just a massive attention-whoring ego monster who probably would get off on beating his wife to make sure she’s saying all the right things when he wants them said. Pretty harsh of me to say, I know, but when you feel the need to make a post to see if, after your dose of hard pwn, your victim has learned the appropriate manners around you I don’t think it’s too much of a stretch to say they’re probably a power freak.

Sadly idiots are everywhere, and despite having a legion of pre-pubescent boys wishing they were women and craving attention on our very own realm forums, it’s been a while since I’ve seen anyone who actually dedicates their gametime to generating e-fame and causing drama over something so very pointless, yet oddly infuriating.

RL Drama Ruined Our Drama Blog

Posted in Daine, Katie, RL Stuff, World of Warcraft on September 24, 2009 by mmoredrama

We’re back! Erm… Again… *coughs*

Unfortunately, with the hectic chaos that we’ve both been victim to just lately, we haven’t been the most committed bloggers in the world. Well, we haven’t been bloggers at all, as technically we’d need to blog.

The bad news is that I (Katie) had a full time job. I know, sucks to be me. The even worse news is that I recently got the boot from said job due to me “not being good enough” at doing a million jobs at one time. The even worse news is that we are no longer going to university! 😦 So a job really would come in handy!

But the GREAT news is that we’re having a little baby to make up for all of this trouble. And no matter how much he wants to, the baby isn’t going to be called Daine, Xanthya, or Alyssea (I know, what a geek)! We’re both really excited to become parents, even if it means putting off going to university for a year or more. He’ll constantly make “witty” jokes about how he’ll now have TWO children (he implies that I’m the other one), and I’ll constantly use my “condition” to get whatever the hell I want. Perfect!

So, a couple of times over the last week, I have mentioned this blog to Daine in an attempt to get it back up and running. Seeing as I’m at home more now, we’ve got plenty of time to start documenting the drama of the internet again. And plenty of our guildies have been pestering Daine to get the blog going again, so it seems we are (slightly) missed. However, it will be quite bizarre writing a blog about World of Warcraft when I haven’t played for AGES and ran out of game time yonks ago. Earlier, I made some passing comment about WoW end game and it turns out I actually have no idea what the top level of content is right now. So… Should be fun.

Anyway, enough talking (Daine says “self-indulgent rambling”).
