Wow, really you guys? I wouldn't sell my account just out of pride. I worked for this... not so some guy with a big wallet can buy my character and tarnish my name (despite whatever lack of reputation I may or may not have).

But if I'm selling my account that pretty much means I couldn't care less about the game anymore and therefore aren't concerned about what happens from that point on.

Also side note whoever ruined Phoenix Wright by making that stupid brony objection pic should die a slow death.

this

i have alot of history in my characters
they represent not only 4 yrs of my life (oh god i have been playing that long?) but also the foundations of some great friend ships
there is a list of people that i have met through this game that i would love to meet IRL, and they only live a few hours away from me

without my toons, i wouldnt have found these forums (stop cheering and wishing i hadnt started playing guys...jesus), i wuold have met tracey (fiance) and i wouldnt have the same skill set i do now

i know this game has improved my multi-tasking ability, and its tied to my characters
no way in hell i would give them up without ALOT of compensation
($800 would be maybe one of them...but i have 13 85s...)


any one else remember that thread where someone posted a link to the power leveling site and we all figured out how much our accounts were worth?
take that amount and triple it, and i might consider it (though, 6 geared max level toons, 7 more at max, plus all my rare achieves/mounts/other crap...it would be hella expensive)

I open my email this morning: someone changed my guild wars email address! Oh noes!

Wait, I don't *have* a guild wars account. Never have. :shock:

I'm imagining this is part of the 'usage' of the Battle.net compromised email address list or someone's typo.

I had 2, on 2 different mail addresses, none of them my wow account (and being european to boot) - so I don't think it has to do with battle.net, they actually looked legit (looking at where the links point and the header info, saying that the originating IP is in the same range as the actual website).

I got something from battle-net/blizzard a while back as well (on a non-wow address I have and use), and that was legit - talked to a CS rep, who just blocked the emailaddress - my guess is its some spider gathering from mmo sites and then used to try and establish accounts.

Saw this at the exhibition we were at today, and the first thing I thought about was Maintankadin members who seem to want bacon covered everything:

Hy,

So we setup a normal run to Raggy normal to help out one of the new trials and a raider getting the free mount bug.

6 Officers/Core raiders with average 15 Raggy HC Kills, and 4 guys that nevar have killed raggy.

So after much threats and much bashing as in:
"If we start wipping due to these M&S i will drop off."
"I'm tired of carring guys here."
"I already have done this 20 times in HC... and i won't be wipping in normal due to the noobs don't knowing the tactic"...
You can see that the guild drama setup was completed.

First pull... first seed phase and the RL goes "guys get together for the adds"... (HC tactic)... BAM... 6 Core raiders dead... 4new guys live...

I laugh so much...
An open mind is like a fortress with its gates unbarred and unguarded.

The only people who say the Alliance can be interpreted as evil are people waaay too into their Forsaken and Orc RP. Everything the Alliance has ever done has been in response to the Orcs; even ostracising the Forsaken peoples aren't that outrageous after what happened in the Third War and seeing your country fall to the undead. The Orcs invaded not once, but twice. Whether or not it was under the Legion's control is inconsequential as they always had free will, as was shown by Ner'zhul's choice to deny the Legion prior to the second war, which ended up with him losing his power because the Orcs EMBRACED the Shadow Council and the Legion. If you didn't remember, even before attacking Azeroth, they massacred the Draenei for no reason other than their own bloodlust and territorial disputes.

What did the Orcs do?
They embraced the Legion and the gifts bestowed by the Blood of Mannoroth and started two wars, causing the deaths of many of their own people and the races of Azeroth because of it; which would frame them as evidently dangerous.
If that weren't bad enough they, under the leadership of Grommash, took the Blood of Mannoroth again for no reason other than their lack of diplomacy where they refused to communicate with the Night Elves or give any attempt to other than saying "Blood for blood" after killing ancients and whips. And, to make it worse, it was at a pivitol point in the war which could have caused the Legion to eventually prevail, but ironically made the Legion worse-off when Grommash, empowered by the Blood of Mannoroth, was able to slay Mannoroth using his own gift against him.

What have the Undead done?
Nothing, at first, their intentions were initially pure. Now they force people under the Banshee Queen's control and kill people unrelated to the war efforts that want to maintain neutrality. They use chemical and biological warfare as well as Scourge engines of war to further their own purposes.

What have the Blood Elves done?
They have willingly sacrificed the essence of a Naaru to further their own society after becoming hooked on arcane energies. Their arrogance and faith in an individual who was obviously working for the enemy and made very little effort to hide it caused a Naaru to become tainted and fall under the sway of the Legion.

What have the Trolls/Tauren done?
Absolutely nothing wrong. They are just doing what they feel is best for their people while honoring pacts they made with Thrall, who willingly helped their peoples in their times of need. In fact, the Tauren and Trolls are well known as being the most approachable races of the Horde in the lore; but not all trolls are like the Darkspear.


What have the Humans done?
They have retaliated to two invasions and opted for internment rather than genocidal actions towards the Orcs whom had ravaged their land twice at the behest of demons.
They have turned the Forsaken away, after seeing the Undead sweep across their lands at the behest of the Lich King and caused the downfall of their kingdom.
Humans, Jaina specifically, is reponsible for helping Garrosh regain his sanity so that he could try and thwart Mannoroth.

What have the Dwarves done?
They have helped the Humans as per their long standing alliance.

What have the Night Elves done?
Protected their lands from invaders that would kill their cultural icons and ancestoral spirits and guides indescriminately.

What have the Gnomes done?
Who gives a shit, it's the Gnomes?

TL;DR
What the Alliance has done has been in retaliation to the Horde. The Horde is, quite easily, the "evil" faction currently.



Was probably the best part of the thread so far.

so siding with the high elves and wiping out, nearly, the Amani tribe of trolls was nothing?
oh wait that was before the dark portal and thus not THIS allaince

the take over and subsequent split of barrens, traditionally horde territory, is nothing?
oh wait, that happened after the cataclysm, so it doesnt count either

dwarves...well there is the whole summoning of Ragnaros the first time in MC, but that was the dark irons so i can see that not being part of it, even though 1/3 of the dwarven ruling council is dwrk iron through marriage, and the rightful heir to the bronzebeard, and thus the ironforge, throne is 1/2 dark iron himself

gnomes - honestly i cant think of anything they HAVE done other than the drilling operation in borean tundra

nelfs - druids of the fang ring a bell to anyone?
they were the original worgen, who slaughtered who knows how many

it is funny they mentioned the belfs, but not the draenei...
while the draenei themselves arent "evil" they are racist, and their race, the Erodar, are Sargaras' officers in the burning legion
if you want to say not all trolls are like the darkspear, well not all erodar are like the draenei either

i am an alliance
i may play horde but i still consider my self a proud bronze beard clan member from ironforge, and a proud member of the allaince
but i am not blind enough to look over our own past doings and claim we are squeaky clean

those that think the alliance are the "good guys" need to re-read their lore
that said, Vol'Jin for warchief! (it will probably be Blaine though)

The undead are probably now the most evil of the races, given the use of the plague, and the Tauren the most "clean" of any of the races, with the rest scattered somewhere in the middle. However, as coming events will show, the Horde does have a greater lust for blood.

My wife read it as part of a book club. After discussing it with her (if I recall the following correctly), she seemed to have 2 things to say: 1) If you'd spent any length of time on the internet, much of the 'racyness' is nullified since some of the main themes are not uncommon. 2) she found a correlation between fans of it and the twilight series... which she also didn't like.

the thing that got me was that there were apparently sequels where the author realized there was no more story to tell, so they added in random stuff.
