Using the A B C D E F grade system where F is failing the class, I normally only get A's and B's. So getting E on one of my exams was a bit of a punch in the gut. :|

We don't get any kind of feedback without sending in a request through the exam office, so I don't even know why. Must've completely misunderstood what the test was asking for, or something. I've sent a request for feedback, but no idea how long these things takes... I need a B average to get into the Master degree I want later, so guess I have to redo my first exam. :cry:

IDW is really pissing me off with their constant delays on the MLP comic.

At least the release schedule for More than Meets the Eye is more stable, but that series is worse than crack. As soon as I am done with the new issue, I am already in need of the next hit, next comic.

Also, seriously considering dropping $100 on the Last Stand of the Wreckers Red Label Limited Edition.

So like... there are no guilds out there that raid six hours a week and have decent progression are there (aka not halfway through normal mode)? Wow.

You're back?... try CTR guild, raid groups all over the place, most of them 10-man though.

Not exactly. I'm idly looking. Probably out of boredom. If anything, I just need to find a new hobby to replace WoW.

I think I mostly wanted to be done with the raid leading aspect of it. As I've never actually looked for a guild before, I wondered what the competition was like. And it's slightly frightening that people with double my team's raiding hours have half their progress. I've got very little interest in raiding 12 hours a week and still be stuck on Tortos normal. My desire to commit to more hours than I was doing before is less than zero however.

Makes me proud of my team though. We did quite well. :)

If you can understand a bit of German then we're always looking for new people :)

We raid 9 hours a week though. Progress in the signature.

The only German I know is "ich liebe dich". Annnnd I think that would give everyone the wrong impression!

The other kicker is time. If it's EU, it'd have to be late night guilds (starting around 23:00 server time). US... well... I'd have to level something and I'm not sure my desire to play is that strong.

You'd be surprised that there's guilds who raid 5 days per week who can't clear normal still :P

Just another demonstration that investing a lot of time in the game doesn't automatically make you good at it.

More and more of my old friends are returning to WoW. It's making this MMO-celibacy real damn frustrating. >_>

Do they have a rotating artist and writer on the book or is it the same people? If it is the same people blame them.

it depends on your ranged being able to get themselves to where the turtles stopped moving...i know we have had a lot of wipes due to turtles dying in weird places and having a train of turtles go through a healer while they were trying to use a cd (happens esp on our holy priest with prayer of healing)

That has nothing to do with RNG and everything to do with the awareness of your raid group.

But it's really not surprising we did so well considering who we had leading us through it. Thanks, Rhia!

how is awareness have anything to do when 3 fucking turtles all turn at the same time and make a bee line for our priest?
who was already standing out of the way of where they normally went and was casting divine hymn? (or w/e the holy healing cd is//i know its not PoH)?

seems to be RNG to me...but then again i am just a bloody casual with no heroic progression
