There's a whole reddit dedicated to mixing Space Jam with other songs, some obviously better than others.

So, I have a coworker that was convinced to join us (which meant I had to resub after 7 months, but whatever). She prepurchased Warlords, and boosted a 90 hunter at my recommendation, based on her past WoW experience, her expectations, and what she really wanted to do.

Then my roommate ("I am not a hunter!") proceeded to confuse her so badly that she started getting frustrated ("This was a mistake!"). And he made it worse, "Talk to Ami, she plays a hunter decently." Which was followed by me, "Uh, YOU suggested to her that she play Beastmaster. YOU explain it to her, I don't play it."

(His explanation of hunters, summarized. "Beastmasters are good because their pets do a lot of damage, the other two are okay but their pets don't do as much damage. Your big attack is Kill Command. Just shoot things. Okay, let's go do a scenario." Wow, an amazing 13k DPS from her 'cause of that nonsense.)

So last night, I had to do a Hunter Training Seminar for both of them. "Here's what each spell will do, here are examples in which you would use them, here are the training dummies, go practice until the rotation feels natural." I gave them a Misdirection macro, explained how to use it and what it does, they tested it.

Once they were decently comfortable, we head to the Timeless Isle to get her some of the purples. But she keeps dying somehow. I'm thinking she just hasn't learned to react to the environment yet.

Nope, turns out that my roommate was misdirecting everything to her, since she was his focus and so the macro was misdirecting to her.

She was cussing him out once she found out.

Today I figured I'd try to gear up my hunter. I joined some LFR after over 6 months of not doing any.

After leaving several SoO LFRs at the first boss before wiping, I can say I'm amused by how after almost 1 year since SoO LFR opening, people can't either follow very simple tasks (kill add, run up a tower, not stand in generic shit that 1shots you) and expecially by how a good 1/3rd of the DPS in raid supposedly in 496 gear has issues surpassing 30k dps.

I can see why WoW is dropping another million in subs sadly.


Actually, a guildie of mine made a valid point on this subject: the game got so easy, that it has progressively "bred" a playerbase of idiots. Thus, outside of raiding guild, most players can't even commit to easy tasks in raids :s

Well, it's not really that. the original DS was bitterly awful at the end of Cata. Really really really bad. Now, you have two issues going. First, the better players have long since vacated LFR for the most part, and with the legendary quest and the recent buffs, even more of "the masses" are heading in there than ever have before. So yeah, it's bad.

It's not really any different than before, it's just made worse by the numbers and the carrot on the stick.

It wasn't *this* bad when I took a break 6 months ago. Sure some bosses were often wipefeasts (Garrosh, Horridon, Spoils, stuff like that), but it was usually a handful bosses in the whole tier. Wiping at Immerseus LFR really demoralized me there.

This year's Worldcon, Loncon3, starts on Thursday, and they just sent out details on registration to all their members. Only, because of a fuckup on (I assume) their software to automatically fill in personalised details on form emails, they sent everyone's details to every member. This Worldcon has thousands of attending members. It's the single longest email I've ever seen; just the same message repeated over and over with each person's name and member number.

Edit: okay, apparently it only went out to a small number, amd it only included details for all members with a number below your own.

I was playing a bit of Hearthstone trying out my priest buff deck. We're both exchanging quite evenly and get to 10 mana with mid 20 health on both heros. Turn 9 I have 1 mana left at the end of my turn and a Mind Vision. Drop it and get Deathwing... oooh. Next turn opponent drops said Deathwing, discarding his hand and otherwise clearing the board. Only thing in my hand, Deathwing, BAM his DW goes in the bin without getting a shot off and he has no cards to deal with my stolen one.

My niece was asking me where she can get an epic weapon for her retadin. I told her that, far as I'm aware, she'd have to go into LFR.

Then my warrior got a polearm from the Heroic Deeds quest (first heroic scenario completed). Next night, my DK gets a 2h mace...
