Shield of the Self-Righteous

Posted in Daine, General Forums Drama, Idiocy, PvE drama, Uncategorized, World of Warcraft with tags , , , , , , on August 12, 2009 by mmoredrama

Now, I’ve written about Allene before, but after browsing the General forums as we do over the last couple of days I feel compelled to do so again. I don’t think I’ve ever, in all of my 4 years in WoW, seen someone so far up their own arse that they came out the other side brown. As you will have seen if you read that post, Allene is a player that doesn’t feel he/she (I’m not really sure, so from now on I’ll just use he for no other reason than it most likely is) needs to comply to general ettiquette within the game, and isn’t interested in doing content in any other way than his way. Despite posting many, many gems in many, many threads, I’m going to focus on this one.

Since 3.2, on overpopulated servers it has been harder and harder to get into instances due to the ‘can’t be launched’ message. To be expected really, with everyone and their dog farming for mad T8 badge gear. A lot of the points the OP make are pretty fair, showing the level of spaz apparent in the WoW community at large. However, Allene manages to derail the thread away from the OP within the first page, and make it all about his problems. This might however be due to the fact that he’s a tool and everyone hates his self-righteous drivel. His argument is that by not allowing people in blues and some BoE epics tank heroics and 10 mans, you’re not allowing them to experience the game in the way it was played in November. Top guilds got to do it this way, so why should casuals have more pre-requisites put on them to experience the content now? Obviously not because these ‘no-lifers’ as he likes to call them have been working together for ages and generally are pretty good at this raiding thing.

So let me get this straight. Instead of farming badges for easier gear being a good thing, it’s actually stopping people from being able to experience the game, and makes it harder for casuals to gear up. Right. Let’s just take a moment to look at this guy’s Armoury. Can I just add, for the record, that I’ve maybe done four Heroics, one Naxx 10 and one Ulduar 10 as a tank on my Paladin, and have better tanking gear than this. Maybe that fact that his gear is shite and he has a terrible attitude is the real reason he can’t get groups. With that out of the way, we can see that effort to buy BoE pieces is above this guy. Naxx 10 was tanked by x guild in November like this, he should be able to aswell. Fair enough. Just don’t expect 90% of the community to agree. Apparently though, he wouldn’t even be getting carried as you can’t carry a main tank.

This doesn’t end here though. As you may have noticed, Allene is guildless, but not through lack of trying in a massively stupid way. What guild would really accept a guy who, and I’m paraphrasing here, will delete any piece of offspec gear that he didn’t earn while playing the offspec, will demand to tank everything to progress his character as he won’t be boosted, and won’t farm badges from Heroics/Naxx unless he’s allowed to do it ‘the hard way’. This would all be fair enough if he’d set up his own group, but I guess that’s harder than forcing people to agree with you. Another thing to note is he won’t read tactics in advance, as the raidleaders back in November didn’t know the tactics so why should he? Again, more pressure on casuals now. As good as all this is, the real kicker is that ‘no-lifer’ hardcore raiders are scared of people being able to get Tier 8 gear because it levels the playing field and will show up their lack of skill. I’m starting to see a flaw in the self-proclaimed consistent argument that he prides himself on here. Gear is so hard to get becuase no-one lets you, yet it levels the playing field and takes away the exclusivity the ‘no-lifers’ covet so much because it’s easy to get. Right.

Going back to the guild thing, he feels he needs to be upfront about ‘his way’ because he doesn’t want to deceive the guild he’s applying to into thinking he’s a team played who will compromise to help the group move forward (my words not his). Ironically, Allene is also the maker of an add-on that creates fake achievements for you to link, so you can deceive raidleaders who demand them for entry to their groups. Definitely a masterclass in showing how to be an upstanding, intelligent contributor to the community right here.


P.S. I forgot to mention that Katie just started a full time job, so chances she won’t update quite as much, or at least not until late in the evening.


The investigation continues…

Posted in Uncategorized on August 11, 2009 by mmoredrama

Before we get into the real post, we should first ask a daring question about CONSPIRACIES. After all, the forum topic containing the concealed breasts of Incarnia as “reported” by us twice here and here has mysteriously disappeared from the face of the Al’Akir realm forums. DUM DUM DUM! Weeks after the post was originally reported, it has finally vanished from the face of the earth – it seems that the powers above us at Blizzard have come to the conclusion that barely naked females IRL and a bunch of whining, competitive troll posts about different guilds being better than other guilds aren’t welcome to the official forums. At least we have copies of the photographs provided hosted on this site, or they’d be gone forever. ūüėČ

And now for the real news…

You know what they say about some ideas – they’re too good to keep to yourself. That’s why Dabrin of the <Disgruntled Alliance> on Frostwhisper went to all the trouble of inviting the entire European WoW community to join The Great Gnome Run, an initiative which some people are comparing to the escapades of “Athene”, who has apparently shot to Warcraft fame for a “gnome humping” adventure on an RP server. But Dabrin didn’t just make a post on the general forums, most likely because it would quickly fall onto page 2 below a zillion whine posts about twinks and the recent patch. Instead, he went to the effort of posting the exact same message on every single realm forum in the EU. No, seriously! He admitted that this was no easy feat, as he said: “you guys are right – i did post on our own realm forum……… and the rest of the EU forums, which was a *#!*% to do. This whole “maximum 10 forum topics, new forum topic accrued every 10 minutes” is a killer! What’s most astounding is that he seems to have gone through the same ordeal the next day, replying to any questions or comments made about the idea. What it would be to have that much determination – all of this effort for one event which will apparently take 30-45 mins!

And like the Michael Jackson presence on the WoW forums, this adventure of Dabrin’s really teaches us a lot about the WoW community, and it’s sub-communities (read: realms). We can divide the responses of all realms into a few categories…

The Unbothered

These realms, which make a vast majority of all of the different realm forums across the EU community, have no interest in the event, or even the forums in general. In most cases, Dabrin’s post is still fairly close to the top of the forum list but has no replies and remains untouched.

The Fairly cruel

On Bladefist, for example, Dabrin is branded gay, and it is alleged that he has no life. Nuwanda, a night elf druid, is the most callous, saying, atleast i dont waste my time trying to organize some pointless “run” that in the end accomplishes nothing but waste of other peoples time … even thought this sounds very genius and i would normally respect u for being able of making people actually WASTE their time … gnomes are gay and there is nothing special about gnomes xept their size so it does rly make any sense why people start prioritizing gnomes over any other class just because they are “rofl cute”. Srsly what is wrong with people and discrimination ?” On Bronze Dragonflight, Hostage tells Dabrin: “no go die in ur cave“, Nordrassil offered the completely new and never seen before “cool story bro“, and Outland seemed to take a GREAT deal of amusement in the whole thing, with a string of lmaos and rofls galore, and Museum chirping in: “@#*@ing humiliating is what it is @#*@ off“. On Twilight’s Hammer, Zepu had some advice (regardless of allegedly having piles, and more worryingly, cooties): “This is pathetic, get a life instead and go out running with your friends.

But the awards go to…

The Self-involved

In the case of Defias Brotherhood, tens and maybe hundreds of new posts are made every day, and it looks like the majority of the server are constantly on the realm forums. However, as an RP server, it’s likely these guys are so wrapped up in their roleplay guilds, drama and various other such things, that Dabrin’s post isn’t even on the first page anymore. Yes, Defias Brotherhood is the most self-involved server on the EU (which comes as no surprise to people who come from there, such as myself). Tons of posts have been bumped and such since Dabrin’s, but his has been left untouched. DB is the only server where his post had fallen off the first page within the first day.

The Completely Confused

Thunderhorn win the award for being the most confused realm. It seems that it’s too hard to grasp the concept, and thus the invite received this response. I can’t even begin to explain what is going on there, as it’s beyond explanation. Take a look if you like to try and figure out the meaning behind completely retarded weirdness.

The Most Cruel

The only server which has more than two or three replies, none of which are in any way friendly or polite, is the server of Executus. This is the server you should go to if you enjoy a bit of group bullying.

The Surprisingly Friendly

It almost made my head explode when I discovered that the only server in the entire of Europe which didn’t flame Dabrin AT ALL, and in fact gave quite a lot of positive reactions, was none other than the drama hub of Sporeggar. The realm where a guild can’t be created without a thousand players wishing its premature demise, and where GMs are accused of all manner of evils after their departure, and where almost half of the posts have been reported and deleted from every single thread, is strangely the most receptive to Dabrin’s kindly offered invitation to join what could be a nice event. A few “awesome” compliments, and a bit of discussion about how fun the event could be. Bizarre.

However, as said by Daine in a previous post, the drama on the forums is unfortunately weak right now due to the many generic whine posts about the newest content. Thanks to Dabrin though, it at least gave me an opportunity to continue my ongoing scientific investigation into the different personalities of realms. Shame it took so much of his time as, with such a widespread response of negativity and a lack of interest on their own guild forum, it doesn’t look like this is going to be the most popular event to hit WoW. However, after seeing the effort he’s going through to make this successful, I think I might go along.

And for those who are interested in the “Athene” phenomenon, which is also making a great impact on the topics discussed in the realm forums, the below video should answer any questions you might have. Not that I’d know, my speakers are broken.

Giving PvP a Hand!

Posted in Burning Blade, Daine, Idiocy, PvP drama, Realm drama, Uncategorized, World of Warcraft with tags , , , , , , , , on August 11, 2009 by mmoredrama

World PvP is a pretty rare occurence these days, with most people either ignoring it completely or just having the oddnowhining city raid because achievements are cool. Not so for these guys. Zylos Hand, of Frostwhisper, Ravenholdt, Al’Akir and now Burning Blade, have one mission and one mission only: to gank. A highly cowardly practice, I’m sure we all agree. Bolvar with stupid accents certainly does, proclaiming them ‘some kind of noob guild seriously’, and that they should ‘go raid or something’. Crying about their ganking antics aside, some of the realm seem to really enjoy the new take on things. The Hand have objectives like ganking at stones to cut supply lines, which is pretty cool imo. Due to them being a big pain in the backside, this wonderful month hath been proclaimed ‘Whack-a-Rat’ month, and the great omnipotent King Zylopfa has rallied his troops with this stirring war cry:

Greetings Sharandarat,
your subtle insult against King Zylopfa The Omnipotent
has not gone unnoticed. The iron fist of Zylos Hand will strike down
upon thee and break thee like a rotten tree struck by lightning.

Any Ratty uprising will be delt with swiftly and descicively. We shall see
in the comming days if your mouth spills over with that which your guts hold,
or if you indeed have intentions of fulfilling your redicoulous suggestion of
ratty disobedience.

To break your battle moral, the Zylophian Troubadurs and Bards have
versed their discust towards your being and your faction of furry plague carrying rodents.

Final Breath! Final Breath!
Prepare to meet the final death.
The swif blades of the Zylophians
Will spill your guts in northrend lands.

The next verse is for you Sharanda
for your courage this i’ll hand ya
Your insolence is foolishly unheard of
only a paladin with bubble/hs could dream of.

We shall fart right before you bubble
paladin with fresh air trouble?
You will be begging for mercy soon or late
like bolvar fordragon at the wrathgate.

Be warned insolent rats!
This uprising will be met with ironclad
slayers of the hand, with cow and cowdad
standing side by side defending the land
We are the Ratslayers of Zylos Hand!

Hail And K!LL, and let the battle commence!
King Zylopfa The Omnipresent.

All sounds pretty ace to me. Whining and crying about lame ganking, or a cool attempt to revitalise a dead practice? You decide. Hail and kill. (This is not technically hardcore drama I know, but it’s been dramatised in a lighthearted fashion by the members of the realm that aren’t all whining muppets.)

Moving on, the forums are aflame with complaints of a slightly different nature. Since Patch 3.2, twinks have been up in arms about the split battlegrounds; one for those wanting experience, and those for twinks wanting their free kills. This thread attempted to be a well-thought out argument about why the system is terrible, but came across as some guy whining about how he can’t beat the crap out of lowbies anymore. QQ. The OP was deleted, but some guy quoted it in full at post 10. There are many such threads and they only seem to become even more numerous, but now with the XP change to Battlegrounds, it now seems to be more of a case of ‘what other stupid obsolete crap could we possibly whine about?’. Well, for you lucky readers aspiring to be on the level of the most proficient whiners, here are some suggestions.

1) Not being able to hit higher level players. Yes indeed. How is it fair that even now twinks are gone, I can’t go into a Battleground at minimum level and pwn face with my levelling gear?? Hit needs to be removed from BGs so low levels still stand a chance of killing higher level players. It’s not like level should be an advantage in this game at all, gear and skill should be the only thing that matters!!

2) PvP servers are ruined because you can’t camp anymore! The OP, probably realising what a massive prat he was deleted his post, but I have it right here.

Not only has the destruction of twinks like myself in the BGs resulted from Blizzard’s desicion to activate experience in BGs, it’s also had ruinous effects on PVP servers – now you’re unable to corpsecamp lowbies, as they can just queue for a battleground, rez and immediately press the accept button in order to get their experience through the battlegrounds. This is completely outrageous and destroys the spirit of PVP even more than it already has been with cross-faction characters being enabled. Something must be done about this – perhaps a debuff preventing battleground access for 15 minutes after your death to another player.

Yes indeed, World PvP is dead. No longer being able to grief that level 35 hunter that killed you in STV with your level 80 is a crying shame, and I for one declare this game dead. This could indeed be a very clever troll, but then why delete the OP? Besides, it’s not like you can’t just wait for them to repop exactly where they queued from and kill them again. Hilarious nonetheless.

3) Classes aren’t balanced at lower levels! Well shit, who’da thunk it. As such, all classes should henceforth have identical skills, talents, gear and stats in Battlegrounds along with having their latency universally regulated and only be engageable by equal numbers. PvP should also take place on a rectangular map which is exactly symmetrical, and even then PC framerates might make it imbalanced.

4) Not enough experience from PvP! Yes, it’s indeed unfair that in a game primarily built around PvE, you can’t level as fast in Battlegrounds. You should get free experience for running around the middle of WSG like 90% of the other facerolling tards and just XPLODE-ing your way to 80. I wholeheartedly agree that from now on, PvP in repetitive battlegrounds should be the fastest way to level, and while you’re at it allow Recruit-a-Friend PvP mode which gives you a constant damage buff for HKing your way to victory please. And also…

5) You don’t get enough gold from levelling. If you do choose to level through your beloved, highly challenging battlegrounds, you don’t even get any money for it. Not only that, but the gear upgrades stop at 60! Now, what is the point in experience in BGs if I can’t even get anything from it and I will be underpowered and can’t even afford repairs through my glorious conquest???

Yep, WoW sucks. Not in ways you might think though, we’ve all got the boredom factor, or the free epics, or it getting easier and yadda-yadda sadface. If you wanted to be a bit more original in your Blizzard hate though, the PvP forums are churning out some pure gold in terms of solid, imaginative problems and solutions to make this shitty game back into the powerhouse it once was.


Take advice from someone who “knows”

Posted in General Forums Drama, Katie, Quote of the Day, RL Stuff with tags , , , , , on August 11, 2009 by mmoredrama

You will find when you quit WoW that you gain a whole new perspective on life in general, and in particular, on the people that you have been playing alongside. Sometimes the spectator sees more of the game, and that’s why it’s always a pleasure to read a “goodbye” post filled with opinions and observations from “the other side”.

The time has come for Cthonya to leave WoW, but before he does, he has a few caring observations to share with us as a parting gift. Isn’t that kind of him? He knows exactly what the world is all about now that he has stepped away from his computer monitor, and instead of being selfish and keeping all of that sacred knowledge to himself, he has decided to share it with us all in an attempt to make the world a better place. So, without further ado, here is what Cthonya had to say in a post entitled, “Finally, toodloo and tata“.

fatIt really all boils down to one single thing.
Unless you get up off your (increasingly) fat arses YOURSELF and venture outside again, in the end your lives really will just amount to nothing more than just screenshots.
There is no such thing as balance in your lives whilst you play Wow. Those who convince themselves that they manage to balance Wow and RL are deluded, there just is nothing more to it.
They are either on the way in or out to become just another wannabe or post hard core player, and there is nothing more to that either.
Loot is god, and there is no other reason your officers are your officers. They are there to control the money and the loot and the goodies and commodities and all the bits that make your belly go all fuzzy inside. The rest is meaningless, just accept it. You are there to make them feel better about themselves, and don’t let them tell you otherwise. Guild Monkey (the one who can delete everyone from the guild and take all the money and stuff whenever they want to) are, well, just fat and useless. The game has no rules, so yeah they can do that and there is absolutely not a single thing you can do about it. Think about it for a second…
Blizzard is no more than a commercial entity. If it wasn’t for them someone else would have done it. Wow is the collective result of all its predecessors and of you. I have nothing against them, I admire them for what they have managed to give so many otherwise lost souls. All that’s missing is a pseudo-messiah and you almost have religion!

How sweet of him to let us know how he feels. And of course, his audience was completely receptive to his positive step towards liberating us WoW players from our life destroying addictions. Forgetting the fact that in the past 6 months, I have been playing WoW fairly casually and still managed to complete my A Levels, get engaged and maintain a healthy social life and family relationships, I think he might be onto something here. After all – he must know. He’s torn away from his WoW addiction and can see what we all fail to realise.

It was disheartening to see people questioning the authenticity behind the controversial words of warning. Cthonya is quitting, and has realised that he was addicted, and therefore we all must be. After all, every person in the world is exactly the same, right?

But one hearty dwarf from Turalyon, Mogan, had a word of warning for Cthonya if he thought life would be all rosy on the other side. “GL on your outside hobbies,” he said, “though make sure you give them up fast or they will control and ruin your life!”

However, I think I’ll grant my Quote of the Day to Conspiracy, who said, “Every 5 seconds a DK quits because the game is too hard. Donate 5 epics a month to keep 50% of WoW’s idiots playing.”

This thread probably won’t be open for long, and is already becoming a bit of a flamefest, which is a shame, because it means that Cthonya’s words will never reach the mass audience that they were intended towards… And overall, the world will be much darker place where fear and addiction keep the masses under control while the dark overlord that is Blizzard continue to rule with tyranny. It’s up to us to spread the message and end this plague once and for all.

Vewy embawassing

Posted in Deathwing, Guild drama, Katie, PvE drama, Realm drama with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 10, 2009 by mmoredrama

embarrassingOnce upon a time, on the realm of Deathwing EU, the guild of <Lockdown> were the most successful, astounding guild that had ever been seen in Azeroth. All wearing their shiney gear in Orgimmar, flexing at the poor peons around them who had never seen the inner walls of Ulduar or even Naxxrammas, Lockdown members were proud to be heroes. So proud in fact, that they were devastated to be selfishly killing the monsters of the world without giving anything back to the community.

All of those lowly peons of Orgimmar would never get to feel the satisfaction of the Ulduar greats falling to their knees (or running back to a certain spot in the room and inviting them to open a chest). Lockdown couldn’t continue to be so victorious and worthy without contributing their fair share to those that would never get to see these marvellous events directly.

“What are we going to do?” squealed the guild master at his minions. “We can’t forget about all of the ‘little people’ that have helped us become the greatest guild on Deathwing! We must do something!”

But nobody could think of anything. They sat in the old guild hall for quite some time, until the sun began to rise outside and the embers of the wooden fire began to crackle and fade away. And then…

“I’ve got it, mon!” called out a troll, excited. “We could invite them to come with us!”

“No, that will never work,” the guild master sighed, placing his corroding head into his rotten hands (he was undead, if you didn’t get it). “Only so many people can enter the dungeon. It’s always been that way.” Nobody knew why, but it was true, so they went back to thinking.

The door to the guild hall creaked open. An elderly tauren hobbled into the room, using his old staff as a walking stick. The guild members looked at him in dismay. Who was this tauren and why had he just invited himself into the room?

He said, “I was standing outside the door. I heard your discussion, and I think I have the perfect answer.”

“You do?” the guild master squeaked, excited. The tauren looked senile, but maybe he had an idea. It was worth finding out.

“Yes,” the tauren replied. “You should make a live stream of the events. You can blast them onto a huge screen in the middle of Orgrimmar for everybody to see. Use trade channel to advertise, or even spam. People must see your success. They must be able to share that glory with you.”

“That’s it!” grinned the guild master. “It’s perfect!” He pointed at a random number of trolls and orcs. “You, sort out the live streaming. You!” He pointed at a level one blood elf. “You start spamming trade chat with our mission – to show the realm our kill of Vezax on hard mode! We will be famous! It’s perfect!”

And so, the plans were in motion. Lockdown rallied the troops, organised the magical screen to appear in the middle of Orgrimmar, and positioned a number of low levels in a city so that they could spam trade chat with links. And the day came. They stood in their formation with their prettiest garments on, with the strongest elixirs and the most reliable fighters. “It is time, men!” the guild leader rallied them before they charged into battle. “It is time to show everybody exactly what we are good at!”

Twenty five members of the Horde charged into battle with the trash before General Vezax (hardmode). They wiped. And they wiped again.

“Turn off the live stream!” called out an ashamed guild master. “Don’t let them see it!”

But it was too late. In Orgrimmar, a worthy and noble tauren druid, destined for many great things, had been one of the only ones in the very small crowd that had bothered to watch Lockdown’s attempts. Watching his heroes, he felt an innate disappointment not dissimilar to the emotional devastation of his level 80 birthday where he didn’t acquire any new shapeshift forms. The anger rose inside of him – all of the emotional investment in Lockdown, his heroes, his idols – was wasted! He needed revenge… It became his mission from that moment on to bring the truth about Lockdown to the masses.


Posting progress on MMo-champ. Spamming tradechat for livestream. Wannabe Ensidia ? Now you only miss sponsors, fans and a community website.” Vewy embawassing indeedy-dums. Lockdown invited the server to watch their victory on a hardmode General Vezax, but couldn’t kill the trash and quickly turned off the live stream in an attempt to save their dignity… Seems Morani wasn’t willing to let it go though. Awesome.

Sarcasm Detector Test

Posted in Daine, Idiocy with tags , , , on August 10, 2009 by mmoredrama

Okay, after several of the posts we’ve made have been taken completely out of context, consider this an aptitude test super-cool-story-brofor reading the stuff we write. Here is a random story I found on MMO-Champion, please read it thoroughly. Take notes if you wish, this not a timed exam.

I met the greatest WoW player ever on the bus yesterday, but he might be more then that. ¬†He might be the greatest MAN ever. ¬†As I waited at the bus stop, an electric car rolled by. ¬†The man in the McDonalds Uniform commented that he actually has the plans for an engine that he designed that “uses a sprocket to run 6 tesla coils” that when it gets going generates more energy then it takes to power it, thusly infinate energy. ¬†He can make this power source of any size so it can run a flashlight or a city. ¬†Of course he can’t go public with this info otherwise “Big Oil and duracell” would be after him.

Then he told me all about his WoW characters. ¬†He has mastered the WoW economy you see. ¬†His level 20 alt has 700 GOLD! ¬†But not only that, his way to make money is so potent that he doesn’t even have to do it anymore. ¬†I’ll let you in on his 2 secrets to this financial guru. ¬†The first is that the greatest way to make money in wow is to prospect tin for moss agates. ¬†As we all know, moss agates are truely the rarest and most precious commodity in wow, and he can sometimes get 6 or 7 gold a piece. ¬†The second trick is with info this potent he no longer needs to do it. He whispers people on his server (who all know him from his total awesomeness) and offers to tell them this great secret if they give him half they’re profits for 6 months. ¬†Who wouldn’t take him up on this. ¬†So now every time he opens his mail box, there are at least 10 to 15 people sending him 30 or 40 gold each.

He figures he’ll reach the gold cap soon, which he insists is 2 million gold. ¬†At that point he might start selling gold on ebay. ¬†He’ll have to charge a little more the chinese gold farmers, but he is awesome and you know he earned it ligit with his mad knowledge.

But what will he be doing personally with this cash? ¬†I’ll tell you… fund the greatest character ever in wow. ¬†His 72 warlock buddy! ¬†Now his warlock is a legend on his server. ¬†Everyone knows how great he is and he spends much of his time being whispered by people to ask him how to play the game better. ¬†He also has to deal with the alliance making horde alts to curse him out constantly for being too good in pvp. ¬†At one point, one person decided to devote they’re wow life to it, but my new friend grew tired of being harassed 6 hours a day. ¬†He tried to be nice and warn the guy, or just ignore him and move on but he deleted all his characters to make more alts to yell at him. ¬†So he calls up his buddy IRL who’s a gm adminstrator on another server, who talks to blizzard for him, and gets the guy banned. ¬†OWNZED!

He also regularly organizes the greatest city raids ever. ¬†The horde love him so much, that he just says he’s going to raid an alliance town and then he has usually 7 full raid groups of max level players. ¬†They all have to stand in one place and move in a well organized group to prohibit lag, which isn’t a problem for him since he built himself a computer that has 15 processors, 6 moniters and keyboards, and he hacked into a wifi network so lag doesn’t effect him!

He went with many more stories until we reached the McDonalds that he worked at. ¬†He told me how he hacked wow and and instant kill people whenever he wants, how in real life he’s the equivilant of a 3 star chef, how great foods stamps are, but in the end, when he left I knew I had just met the greatest man to ever live.

Pencils down. All okay? It all sunk in? Got your notes handy? Okay. Sure you don’t need another look? Fine, fine, I trust you. Now, for those of you like Sarpanti who felt the need to do a point-by-point breakdown of the story in question, please never visit this page again. Your detector obviously failed miserably. As someone in the thread said, the story in itself really isn’t that funny, but the amount of tards who fail to realise that the OP didn’t believe this shite (or just made it up, who knows) is. Sarpanti did save himself with an obligatory ‘Lol I’m just bored’ when called out though, so I guess that brings him back in with the cool crowd.It seems he’s not the only one though, with 90% of the people in this thread either being muppets with ‘Cool story bro’ images in their various forms, or trying to dissect the story to prove that you don’t need 6 graphics cards to run 6 monitors, or that engines running thanks to perpetual motion don’t exist. Not only that, but when it’s pointed out to be a sarcastic pile of drivel, a stream of posters come in with ‘LOL IDIOTS NOT GET SARCASMZ ROFL!!!’. Ironically what I’m doing here, but screw you guys, I know this stuff :(.

So kids, in case you don’t realise what constitutes sarcasm, please study this story so that in future we can all enjoy the internets further thanks to our enhanced knowledge of the art of sarcasm. It also might help those who are more ‘challenged’ to get the point of what we write here, and not take us as some born again Christians campaigning against she-devils and nasty people through the power of the written word. Thank you.


P.S. I appreciate this post didn’t really require much effort on my part, but you try hunting for decent drama when the forums are infested with Patch 3.2 whine threads that cover the exact same ground with no attempt at making themselves look overly retarded or humourous. Tedious is what it is, though Katie has something pretty ace coming.

UPDATE: Al’Akir boob drama – they got the server first, and now we get to see the goods

As Daine mentioned before in this post, a civil war emerged on Al’Akir when a pretty lady named Incarnia offered a boobylicious incentive for her guild so they would work harder toget the server first Yogg+0. And joy of joys, Immersion managed to pull it out of the ballsack and get it done – all in the name of free soft porn, of course.

Well, you may have been conned by the minx as, although she’d previously stated it, she had an evil plan to avoid anybody seeing the full picture. Yes, as a music writer who obviously thinks she has a good chance of being famous one day, Incarnia ignored the fact that posting any picture at all on a realm forum to bribe a handful of horny boys to kill a boss faster is really quite geeky and might damage her reputation as a serious (or at least “cool”) musician, and explained that, “this picture is non harmful and something that I can stand for even in the future if questions arise and this picture was somehow to surface up.”

And, oh no, we weren’t expecting this at all. She didn’t deliver on her promise. SHOCKING AND COMPLETELY UNEXPECTED!


Besides the fact that this picture is complete emo and girlish in a bad way, there are a number of things about this picture that probably irritate people everywhere. The teenage boys who were looking forward to seeing the boobies of someone they’ve actually communicated with will of course be agitated by the fact that she didn’t even show cleavage – yes, there’s about as much skin on this picture as there is on the CBBC kiddy shows my cousin watches. The grammar police (including me) will be reeling at the many typos, dodgy sentence syntax errors and, ugh, the letter “U”. And yes, some people who think they’re feminists but actually stand for everything anti-feminism will bitch about the fact that the girl is giving us all a bad name.

A bit of an anti-climax, to say the least, but I’m not sure anybody expected anything else. The word “cocktease” is mentioned, she’s called “chicken shit”, and someone else pipes in, “the little girl posting pics with clouds and hearts… You’re pathetic.”
She probably would have done better to just post her damn boobs!
