Whereabouts?

Four days in Ottawa, then a couple more in Montreal.

Ottawa's my hometown, although Montreal is a lot more exciting. :) Enjoy your time in my country!

I just received an email from our CTO, forwarded from HR, that invites all the depts to make Harlem Shake videos... *facedesk*

I'll ask if I can bring my Pyramid Head helmet prop.

You guys should buck the trend and do the actual Harlem Shake in your video. It'll be the most boring one ever.

We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

I always feel like the US patch on Tuesday night is like a test run for EU servers. :D

I can't confirm if anyone made it in, but at least on malygos there were people who made comments that made me believe when the server came back up, LFR was allowing them to queue for the ToT LFR, even though it's not available until next week.

Another restart happened about 30 mins after the server came back up. That one appeared to fix it.

Ditto. I can't really think of a time where the EU patch wasn't live by the time they said they would be!

Think it was back in TBC, when they applied a 2.5MB patch that took the servers offline for almost 48 hours.

Yeah, they brought the servers up after maintenance as per usual, but then a bit after mid-day, the game became really unstable and they had to take them down immediately.

Got an invite to Gorefiend to do Gal, decided to stick around and search for Warbringers. Found one, went prot and engaged it.

Around 50%, an actual gorefiend group shows up, I've noticed them around killing other Warbringers. They start kiting mobs to me letting my aoe take threat off, etc, in an attempt to kill me. Well, needless to say, they failed and I got the kill. I wonder how pissed they were to see a Sarg on their server stealing their rares, luls.

Picture the scene. A large group of people all on Isle of Thunder, waiting for Progenius to spawn. You're on top of a tall mountain, with almost everyone turned into Saurok's as a result of the daily quest. You know how far you jump in Saurok form, right?

"Hey, is anyone else's space bar not working"

Cue a very large portion of the group suddenly jumping off the mountain into the distance!

I've done that a few times. I have a tendency to bounce when I'm waiting around.

Also amusing: Fighting that rare with a big group, and watching half of them go flying off into the distance every time he does his AoE knockback. I think we started with 20 people and killed it with 3.
