sometimes you don't actually get what you pay for... well, unless you count maybe a fancy box and logo. ;)

Seriously though, I feel with certain types of consumer electronics, you have to actually get to a pretty high price-point before a real quality/craftsmanship difference is discernible. And even then, it's not a guarantee.

Don't get the ones with an in-line volume control. That's the bit that breaks the most often with me (and they are always unfixable because of the way they are wired up).

Seriously, I've just gone back to P&P for my roleplay fix because of it :P


I felt like NWN did a better job, though I guess one could argue that having a more pure good/neutral/evil system is easier than ME1's system, which like Nooska says is a bit more situational. With that being said, I wasn't nearly as critical of these things ten years ago (or however long it's been). :roll:

RL stress, plus raider annoyances got the better of me and i now have a possible dislocated pinky (and ring finger)...

It's ok, I have a friend who once after not winning a loot in LFR threw his keyboard on the wall and pretty much destroyed it. We were on skype so I heard the sound.

People who break their own stuff in rage always fascinate me. Have a friend who, in rage at dying for the n'th time at some boss, threw his Xbox controller at his TV, which then broke and collapsed the shelf it was on, crushing the Xbox and PS2 sitting beneath it (good old CRT TVs). It was hilarious and tragic at the same time.

We lost Undying at Kel'thuzad with the boss at 2%. The guy who died (to a void-zone of all things) trashed a cupboard.

Since when did horde start sucking so terribly bad at AV, and all leveling BGs in general? 20 or so BGs this weekend, 1 win. Not to mention the hackers in IoC, where the alliance had capped all the resources before the gates opened...

I never was very good at BGs. Had a pretty good run in Arenas, but BGs never quite worked out for me. Though, at some point I figured out I had a knack for brutalizing flag carriers though, so I took it upon myself to make their lives hell. :lol: What class/spec do you PvP as? Shadow priest?

Does it matter? I fail at all of em XD

The only class I ever was good at playing in PvP was Holy Pala in Wotlk. Well, they were pretty OP back then so that's likely why :lol:

I tried a few more BGs late last night, and it was still utter fail, and i got so pissed I was gonna Bldavis my keyboard, but then I realized that might hurt, and then I began to wonder if I Worldied the BG when I moved my Orc hunter, so then I said screw it and just Flexed the miserable dolts in /I until the BG ended.

AV and IoC are pretty much the only BG's that alliance dominates for some reason that is really still unknown to me.

I think the AV advantage has something to do with the bridge choke point leading up to the main alliance base and I've also heard that one of the alliance GY's is a little less accessible and thus easier to defend back near the base.

Either way, most horde just blacklist those two maps because their chances of actually winning them are lower than 50/50.

there is a fairly good choke point at the GY right before the bridge, where the equivalent horde gy is out in the open
