I, too, am curious as to how you've arrived at the conclusion that this person is "bullshitting about depression," and what criteria you have used.

Incoming personal rant that will be profane, but I can't post this anywhere else without starting Hatfield's Vs McCoy's 2.0 (Or would it be 3.0, since technically, last year there was a similar blowup?)

My son turned 16 today. SIXTEEN. That's a big fucking deal. His Great Grandparents picked him up after school today, to give him cards, and gush all over him, and all that grandparent shit. They gave him a birthday card from his mom who, despite living with them, couldn't be fucking bothered to make the 30 minute total drive to pick him up from school, drop him off at home, and drive back to their house.

Why? Because she needed to be somewhere else, with her boyfriend. Where was this other place? Oh.... a couple of blocks from the high school. Mind you, this woman has not seen her son on his birthday 7 fucking years in a row now. The first 2? Jail/Prison. The third? Rehab. The fourth? uh....... Jail... I think. Fifth? She was no where to be found. Last year? She asked him to stop by her house, which was a block from the school. TADA! SHE WASN'T HOME! This year? Boyfriend.

All of this, despite the fact that she says she wants to "fix things" with him. She lives a 10 minute fucking drive from my house, with her GODDAMN GRANDPARENTS WHO WOULD FUCKING DRIVE HER ANYWHERE. Does she come? No. Does she call to try and pick him up and do something with him? No. Does she even TRY to have the FUCKING VISITATION THAT THE COURT ORDERED? No. Does she even try to make it to his baseball games? Uh.... Well... Since she's been out of Prison, there was the game that she brought her Sex Offender Boyfriend to that got them both trips to jail, And... then the next season, there were.... 2? games. And uh.... Last Season, there was.... 2 home games.

Yep. Awesome. Stellar. Mother of the Century material right there I tell you.

I got a text message from him, and he tried to play it off, as if it amused him that she wasn't there, and that it was just her living up to her reputation, but I could tell that it hurt him.

I swear to god, I think she was a better mother when she was in prison. At least then, he knew where she was, knew she wasn't getting wasted out of her mind, that she was safe, and her not being there for his birthday was sort of understood.

You know why I'm not worried about my son getting a teenage girl pregnant?

Because his mother is the proof that sometimes, cool girls go batshit fucking crazy.

Following a 15% wipe on Sha heroic last night we went for an extra raid tonight to try to get it before the patch, with some tweaks that should have got us the kill. Of course then our 503 warlock's ISP decided to do early maintenance and he loses his internet an hour into raid, and all we're left with is a 490 shadowpriest trial to take his place. Our best try tonight was 2 minutes longer than our 15% wipe yesterday, and the boss was at 17%. Sigh.

Store your interface and WTF folders in a Dropbox folder. If something goes wrong and your UI gets nuked you can restore previous versions via the Dropbox website.

Luckily I found a backup I made about 3 weeks ago when I was playing around with another UI.

Still horrible coding regardless.

My avatar sums up the situation pretty much.

Engineers got screwed over. The pet and the mount appear to both have been removed.

Not really a frustration rather a question: how do you get flagged for pvp on Galleon?

I was tanking it last night, died and got battle rezzed. Then I noticed that I was pvp flagged.

I never targeted a horde. I did aoe but gather that does not flag you anymore.

The only thing I can think of was that it was something involving the healers - if they heal a pvp flagged person, they get flagged. If they then heal a non-flagged person, do they flag them?

You have to directly attack, buff, or heal a flagged player to get flagged - they can't flag you. The only way you can get flagged without doing anything is if a pvp-flagged guard attacks you.

BEST EXPERIENCE



seriously though, I think it's because at least some subset of the B.net servers are shared. Hence why the D3 launch also borked SC2 and WOW.

I don't know if this was a frustration or amusement, but I haven't seen LFR groups as bad as the 4 I was in last night since some time late in DS when folks who could actually play apparently decided to go play D3 or anything but LFR. Not just chat-trolls who couldn't stay out of the bad, but also pure fail on mechanics. Even with someone explaining them.

Some of the fail was comical, though now I have anecdotal evidence that the new wipe buff actually works and helps.

They all use the same login servers.

Yeah LFR was bad last night, I just went there to get the "new items" on bags and some VP, started with Feng, tanks don't bother anymore with the gems, just tank and spank (I get frustated at every epicenter and missing every blow). On Garajal nobody goes in, even for the buff, on Spirit kings a tank always dies charging in on pull and people dot aoe on maddening shout, Elegon of course there are still half a dozen people falling down and on Will people tunnel on bosses while adds run around.

Yeah specially on First wing of HoF, where's tons of trash, like 3 on each pull, eventually got the "everyone passed on X recipe"

I'm just hating those people that won't invite for a rare kill, specially that now everyone will get it's own loot.

Yeah as I mentioned in the 5.2 thread it seems like the absolute dregs are back to LFR. After wiping on Horridon for 3 hours the last thing my nerves could take was tanks getting chain battle rez'd on the first trash pack in HoF.

Noooooo thanks.

That's because you don't need to group to get credit anymore. I could not believe how many people do not read patch notes as Galleon was at 60% and General is being flooded with ZOMG INVITE FOR GAL COME ON YOU ASSHOLES INVITE ME -_-
