My frustration - capping valor seems a drag now. I used to run all 5 LFRs, do a MSV clear and a few daily heroics/scenarios. Now, I've lost interest in 5.0 LFR - I've done it for months, it's obsolete and it's starting to irritate me with the queues/incompetence.


Hmm.. this past week. 5 boss kills in MSV, 3 days of Isle dailies, Summoning stone quest, and a lot of rare farming, and a few other misc dailies. First week in a while that I didn't touch LFR.

The Isle dailies, as annoying as they are, are still better than an 5.0 LFR, at least until you max that rep. Hopefully by that point the new LFR has plenty of wings open.

If you get lucky and get 5-6 rare kills in 30 min or less, that valor adds up fast.

Don't. I left my corpse of a server behind and haven't logged on an alt since 5.1.

I think one of the things that stop me is that it would be a faction change as well... -_-

When cleaning out some old profiles, It amazed me how many times I've moves some of my toons over the years. Seems like once an expansion I wound up moving. Guilds changed or folded, people I played with moved on.

Stuff changes.

But there's always someone who never had to change, like myself. I caved in when I realized I wasn't in sync with my own guild anymore, and couldn't blow my enjoyment of the game for the sake of others.

So yeah, it's always someone's first time, as they say.

That's also why I'm hopeful with the large guild. While you can get lost in one, it's also much easier to find a niche that works for you (CTR had 8 raid teams running last night.. :shock: ). The smaller the guild, the easier for that apple cart to be hopelessly upset with a few additions or subtractions.

I have no idea what the fuck happened. But I've gone from 60 fps on the isle of thunder yesterday down to 4 fps today. No addon change. No video card changes. What the hell!

I wonder if it's got something to do with whatever graphics enhancements/changes they incorporated this time around. I've heard a lot of people complain about greatly reduced framerates all over the map, not just the new stuff. Part of it I'd been willing to blame on more people being on.


To be safe, let's blame it on CRZ and make a lot of noise on the official forums.

Who's in!? :twisted:

I even removed all of my addons, turned all the game settings down to practically nothing and I was still running at a whopping 4 fps.

Updated my addons. Same issue. Then started to get 4 fps in the Shrine indoors, which is nuts.

Rebooted my PC for like the third time as a last ditch effort and now it's all back to normal. What on earth... I mean don't get me wrong, I'm happy... but that's really nerve-wracking.

Maybe your PC fan is overheating, I had the very same issue as you described a few days ago and that was the cause.

I'm done with raiding. No I'm not going to be a bench warmer in case one of your mediocre dps doesn't show up. No I'm not interested in carrying your alts.

I'm just done. I seem to be enjoying pvp so much more lately that at least I have a new outlet in the game where I don't have to deal with the same people's daily bullshit anymore.

I think my problem is I need to stop caring so much about a stupid video game and accept the fact that raiding just isn't something I enjoy anymore instead of making excuses to myself why I think I still do.

I'm at the point where 2-3 years ago I'd be dying to do all this shit.. lately I haven't even wanted to log in some days.

I guess I'm more frustrated that the inevitable is rearing it's head. At this point I doubt I'll see the end of the expansion before I call it quits.

this should prob go in relationships but right now i want to put my fist through my monitor so i figured frustrations was better

apparently you are supposed to drop EVERYTHING and be at someones (who is 1 1/2 states away) beck and call because that is what true friends do

i was already raiding tonight when my friend texted me and said hey my brother got accused of rape!
we talked for a little while we were doing trash (farming the new raid so we can all get new shinies tomorrow) and when we did an attempt on the boss i said hey we are doing bosses now, ill respond asap

over the next 3 hours i get my ass chewed how i must not give a shit because i wasnt supporting her...
SERIOUSLY?

WTF AM I SUPPOSED TO DO WHEN I AM IN OREGON AND YOU ARE IN FUCKING MONTANA????

Hmm, when someone says "hey i need some support my brother's been accused of rape" and you say "sure thing, just let me slay an internet dragon first" i think i can see why the friend was upset.

While I can see why they'd be upset, I don't think it's reasonable.

I'm assuming bldavis isn't a lawyer nor able to give legal advice, which is what the friend's brother really needs. It sounds like a 'zomg, I gots drama I need to talk about' that happened while bldavis was engaged in something already.

And it also sounds like that conversation was going on for quite some time before it was time to try the dragon. Man can only process so much drama anyway...

Do you guys normally dismiss your regular raids as "oh just off slaying internet dragons"? I can see why some gamers say it like that so that they're not taken too seriously about it (lest they be judged! :O), but I can see why friends/family would get aggravated or irritated if they feel that you're making light of your raid commitments (to them anyway) and yet do that instead of talk to them.

Well, since it's a video game, those family and others that need to rant fail to realize that you are playing with 9 or 24 other people that have made a time commitment to be in the same place at the same time. My wife forgets that sometime. :wink:

I guess it's different for everyone, but my friends and family all know that I am not *ever* free from 9 am till noon every weekend day (unless I've made plans to do something very specific). Even when my parents come into town to visit they know that I can't meet up with them till after noon because of my commitments. I just make it very clear that I have other people who are depending on me and that I value being consistent with them.

I just find that the more people brush off their video games as "just videos games" the more easily it becomes not a true commitment to other people. They'll never take it seriously if we ourselves don't vocalize our devotion (that's a horrible word to use here because it makes us sound like we're slaves to the game, but you get what I'm saying) to it and the other people we play with.
