Guild 'drama' last night that wasn't actually very dramatic at all, or even really in guild that much.

Trying to do Island dailies before company comes over with my girl, someone out of the blue contacts me asking for a ginvite, saying he just came to our server from Area52. I tell him we don't do blind invites of strangers, we only take applicants and friends of members. He asks to talk to our GM (who's computer is dead and their new computer won't arrive until april). I try to put them off, they nag, I end up calling our GM to ask if there's someone coming from Area52 that they know of (as some of our old guild members moved to Area52 shortly before we moved off Scarlet Crusade, and then their guild kind of fell apart, and they were considering trying to come back to our guild). She has no clue what's going on, tells me to just keep doing what I'm doing.

I inform him as such, and he FINALLY gets to the point, says he was just (a few minutes ago) in a random dungeon with some people from our guild who were making our guild look bad. He names some names, and I tell him I'll investigate. I end up chatting with one of the people he ran with, someone who is pretty honest all in all to get the story.

Turns out, he was in a run with some of our guildies, he was tanking, and ended up blaming them when he pulled extra mobs in Shado-Pan. There was bickering, stuff escalated, and the guildmates eventually had enough of him being a prima-donna tank (I think they finished the run, but they generally refused to heal him or aknowledge his presence at all). When I confront him with this, and mention that he misrepresented himself from the getgo (he was actually from Mal'ganis, not Area52, and he initially presented himself as someone looking for a guild, not someone with an issue with ours), he gets defensive, and then starts whispering insults to random people in the guild.

And my ignore list grows one bigger.

Mind, the guildies could have probably handled it better (just kick the idjit), but tempers are tempers and people will be people. And I'll freely admit I don't have much patience for tanks who aren't able to accept the blame when they do something stupid (everything is not, despite popular belief, the fault of the healers or the dps). I screw up plenty, and I'm willing to admit my mistakes.

But when you're the best at being the worst, are you good at something or just really bad at it?

I use Downcast, syncs its status across various devices which is nice and has location based updating, so it'll update itself when you arrive at work or leave the house. Haven't had a real issue with the latest releases of the Podcast app but I use the extra features of Downcast.


Hmmm, was hoping for a free one =p


The 1.2 update to the Apple Podcast app resolved all the reasons why I wouldn't use it.

The biggest change is it'll respect synced podcasts from iTunes. Previously with the Podcast app installed the Music app would disable podcast playback but since the Podcast app didn't support synced iTunes podcasts they just vanished into the nether.

Subscriptions, playlists and playstate appear to sync across devices.

Spitfire Beam no longer increases in damage with each jump, deals a flat 200,000 damage(up from 150,000 damage), and jumps to 99 targets (up from 20 targets).


They removing the coolest feature of Oondasta :( Basically making him a loot pinata.

I don't think Blizz expected the tenacity of the WoW players to find a way to zerg something, lol.

I thought he only became a loot pinata because entire factions were taking him on in pure zerg for the fences fashion (thanks to faction tap)?
