We even have the advantage of having a very slow and bad system where even if you sue someone for helping, you get bogged down in delays, process costs and attourney costs, that by the time you finaly get to a judge you already lost more money that you can ever get it back...

How is the expression?
It's so bad that it's good? :P

P.S. But generaly speaking even unsolicited help won't in most time get you sue or convicted. Only cases of gross incompetence or stupidity get you in trouble. And it has to be veryy bad and it still depends on the judge.

Apparently there's a "bug" that a lvl 80 can enter if a lvl 90 enters first. I'm assuming this was low priority given the idea of "what could a lvl 80 do in a lvl 90 raid other than die horribly"

He said he managed to take down Stone Guard after 5 attempts and then got Feng to 15%.

The amount of hysteria on the forums was pretty comical. "DONT YOU GUYS SEE HOW THIS IS BAD? GUILDS WILL START BRINGING A LVL 80 TANK AND BLAH BLAH" and people claiming he was hacking that had absolutely no grasp on how Vengeance works.

Had a pally tank in my guild talk about how this was going to result in some change to paladin vengence - I hadn't heard about it.

Curious - since I haven't played a lvl 80 tankadin this expansion, was it just that they were getting hit hard enough to get insane amounts of attack power (and thus insane scaling on SS, damage and all sorts of other stuff), was able to take advantage of stat scaling to get very high avoidance/block and had just enough heals/absorbs to keep up?

Hum,
Run in with CD, take 1hit and let the CD (what's the name) heal you to 40%?
Get buble for imunity, get SS on your self since your AP should be sky up?
Cancel Divine Shield and go to town? Keeping SS always?
I don think a HP pool of a lvl80 tank (no matter what the gear) can take even 1hit from a lvl90boss.

About nerfing Vengeance, despite the fact that i hate Vengeance, they will not touch it, they can and prob. will change the scalling from the SS at lower lvls.

Apparently there is some way to 'cheat' the gate if you have a level 90 go in first and are right on them when they go in... or at least so sayeth MMO champ denizens.

I haven't tried to enter one, and if indeed the portals can be fooled that easily, it seems really dumb (it's not like a physical door you can crowd through...). I'd think it more likely that the level restriction wasn't working or wasn't implemented.

No, it relied on an exploit related to Shield of the Righteous. There's a thread about it in AT&C if you want to read more.

They've already adjusted Vengeance to fix it, from reports. Vengeance is apparently capped at your max health now (so the L80 paladin would only get about 150k Vengeance at most, not 3 million).

I live in a town with a National Guard Base. There is an Air Force Base 3 hours (driving) away.

Lately, residents have been seeing blackhawk helicopters flying around their houses.

These people live in the rural areas surrounding where I live. They are flipping out about these choppers. It's a government takeover. They're planning to institute martial law, their searching for places to land in hiding and launch ground assaults to take away our guns. You name it, it's being said.

Wooboy. These people are crazy.

Hahaha... Yeah, we had those Black Hawks a while back flyover over my house every single day a while back. We even had some Chinooks.

It was a 2-3 month long military exercise near the Mexican border.

Yeah, people are flipping out, and it's absolutely hilarious. The reasons for it to happen here are long. Here's a couple.

1.) We have a National guard Base, and our local airport has the longest runway in the State.
2.) We are out of the way of much of the "business traffic" that you would have in some places. Unless it's a flight from Cleveland to Columbus, we just don't have a lot of other traffic.
3.) We are kind of out in the middle of nowhere. Most of Ohio is (unless you're by the lake, the river, or C-bus), but we have multiple terrains around. We have Forests, Farmland, several sizes of cities/towns, several large lakes.

Those are the easy ones off the top of my head. I mean, why wouldn't you train here? Though it's funny, the Statement says that all the Choppers flying are blackhawks.

Some guy said "NO WAY MAN! I SEEN ME SUM UV DEM DERE APACHEE HELEECOPTURS! I NO I DID! I FLY MODULS AS UH HOBEE, I NOED WUT DEY LOOKS LAIK!"

-I took liberties with his spelling, so that you could fully grasp the type of individual was speaking. I did not change sentence structure, or the words. The actual sentence was:

no way man i seen me some of them there apache choppers! i no i did! i fly model as a hobes(I'm assuming he meant hobby), i knowed what they looked like.

At first, I thought it was a joke, so I checked his facebook profile. No. He really does speak like this. Little grammar, terrible sentence structure, ugh. It was painful.

I wanted to quiz him on it, since you know, at several hundred feet, a Blackhawk that is armed
Image

would probably look a lot like an armed apache

If all you could see was a side, or the bottom.

Since I grew up on and around military bases of various types, I'm one of those people who sometimes watch stuff flying overhead but am not greatly bothered by it. I can't imagine what people would have thought of say tanks being driven in (on flatbeds, of course) for transport to/from overseas.

For example, when a couple blackhawks (can't remember if one had the white stripe) were flying east-bound from O'Hare a couple years back, I knew there'd be some annoying bad traffic patterns downtown and late flights. Sure enough, Obama had flown in, and there was bad traffic and late flights (if he was the cause, however, is debatable :P)

My business has to freak people out then. We have 18+ Military Trucks on the lot right now, and our Repair Shop is about 15 miles away. Why? Well, because we own the building, it has ample space, and was pretty easy to put a service bay capable of handling huge trucks in.

So you know what happens? When it's monthly service time, there is a convoy of Military Trucks. Headed through the Ohio Country side. They all have Dealer plates, so you would only ever see a license plate on the back of the last truck, since we try to stick close together when driving them, in case of a problem. And we normally drive 5-6 of them over at a time.

ZOMG IT'S AN INVASION!

i love seeing military convoys, esp when there is a tank or a humvee with something on the back of it!

it might be that i have been around military my whole life (father, uncle, and cousin were/are all military and i was going to join the army before my knee got f-ed) but until i see someone in military uniform walking down the street carrying weapons i will never think its an invasion

I love seeing diggers and stuff doing their thing; if I'm ever rich enough I'm going to buy a house with a big garden, and reserve part of the garden for digging with the nice little JCB that I will have bought :D
