Hooray for lame me!

Well, I’m happy about it.
After a long, very depressing day, I needed something fun to waste time with. No, this didn’t help all that much, but it still gave me a sense of satisfaction, completion.

Ruins of Ahn’Qiraj (AQ20)

So, Thanksgiving evening was spent enjoying a good ol’ warcraft run in AQ20. There were several people there who had never been in a raid before. Some who had never been to AQ before. And others, like myself, who’s never seen the entire place. While we didn’t complete the whole thing, we did take out four of the bosses. despite the slow pace to help the youngin’s, it seemed pretty quick. Guess that’s how it is when there’s many over-60 players together there.

It was awesome fun.

It also really showed how shitty this computer is now. I used to be able to go into places like that and MC and never get much lag. Last night, I was running an average 8fps. I’m sure it was down to 1fps during some fights as my screen would entirely lock up. Damn, I need that computer NOW.

But, despite my lag and one disconnection, I’m rather proud of my damage output. While I’m certain it isn’t 100% accurate, this is what Beneras’ damage meter read at the end:

(clicking the image will lead to my fullscreen [albeit a bit shrunken] shot which showcases my disasterous interface! CLICK IT BITCHES!)

Kinda cool.
I’m thinking that once I get my computer issue taken care of, I’ll be better. Toss in the fact that I don’t yet play in zerker stance… Yeah, I’m thinking my dps will rise. Once I do get these things taken care of, I’ll have to work on aggression. Now, with my idol, Church, aggro didn’t matter. He used to tank while in zerker stance. His dps was enough to hold aggression on nearly anything and his armor/health was massive enough that the extra damage taken from the stance didn’t mean shit. He makes my panties wet >.> Of course he’s in some major PvP and SSC gear…

Ok, enough nerd-rambling.

So, there I was, having fun in Warcraft, when some idiot goes and ruins my mood.
I made a statement to the guild about a near win versus pretty harsh odds. I was actually quite proud of how I performed. And this idiot just had to chime in. Read on, then I’ll continue:

(Forgive my shitty cropping… Just to help with my cut, one statement I made should read “clearly you’ve never played ALONG with…” My crop cut off most of the “a.”)

Anyways…

This moron talks a lot in the guild. A LOT. And so far, I’m yet to see anything useful, fun, informative, kind, etc from him. He’s a waste of space. 99% of the time, that I have seen personally that is, he talks as if he is an ultra-elitist. This guild is NOT for the elitist mentality… So every time he decides to brag, he just looks like an idiot. Oh, I’m just one person thinking this? Nope. That guy has become a topic of humor in a couple party chats involving guildies as well as PM’s. He’s a joke.

As you can read, every statement he has made is totally biased and incredibly ignorant. As well as flawed (note the time he claims to have played – and was called out on). If he truly has played a dedicated DPS warrior, then my statement must be true. I have personally played along with a few. If you’ve never played with one, then you must’ve heard about them… Seriously, after playing FIVE years as a warrior!
*snicker*

Oh, well. Idiots abound.

PS: My wordpress is linked on my guild site. I hope that ignorant kid stumbles onto this and lets his ego fly! Poor baby ;(

I stopped into my old World of Warcraft server, Zul’jin, yesterday. I talked a bit with a couple old friends, one of whom I think will hate me eternally now. My mage, my baby, Alese, is officially retired. As is my ultra-cool rogue, Alésé. That server, that world, is dead to me. I’m leaving behind a lot of good friends… Wait. Am I? If they really are “good friends,” then how can it be that I’m “leaving” them really? I talk to Kris several times a week. Steph, less often, but still, we do seem to be keeping in touch. Jerr, I can see any work day, as he works under my boyfriend at the same job as me. The others? Hell, everyone has at least my email. Some even have my cell. And yet I’ve not heard from any in months… “Good friends.”

Furkey is continuing to make me happy. And frustrated. And horny – have you seen the Draenei’s chest and ass? Damn! Ok, seriously…
My momentum has slowed. I can’t stand these Alliance quests. Sure they’re similar to the Horde ones, but different. Besides, I’m so goddamn sick of looking at humans! I’m just crabby. I need to hurry up and hit 70 so I can finally screw around with some others. And do PuGs for some of the max-level 5-man instances. Oh, yes. I think I’ll use the new voice chat crap for that. Why? Because idiots in PuGs piss me off and I get a kick out of yelling at strangers before I yank the connection out of the wall.

sad furks

big warcraft changes… sorta.
and the inability for me to stay connected! which i believe is a direct result of the patch… nazi bastards.

the new “wait for your fucking gold” change with the auction house sucks my feet. its retarded. and pointless. and the stupid mail saying “IT SOLD! YOULL HAVE YOUR MONEY IN A DAMN HOUR!” is stupid as well. i didnt delete mine and then today i see theyre replaced with the money. does this mean i CANNOT delete them or else i wont get my money? or did the money-mail just take the place of the others? i hope its the latter cause if not, that means im stuck with the mail icon 24/7. and thats so lame. fuck you blizzard.

another huge change is the “voice chat” ability now. i guess it works only in groups/raids. i didnt look much into it.
i have a serious issue with this. elitists will no doubt demand everyone use it even if its a damn party going to kill a nesingwary quest mob. and a good chance if someone doesnt, they could get booted. ya thats a rather drastic example, but still…
i for one dont use it. do i have a microphone? sure do. in fact i currently have two! do i have ventrilo or teamspeak installed? yup. do i have access to guilds/friends servers (or whatever theyre called)? yup. do i use any of these things? not so much. i have had more bad experiences with them than good. maybe guys dont mind being called a “dick” or something from time to time; and maybe its just a girl thing, but i do not like being put down, talked down to, or verbally assaulted in any way. one of the only recent times that ive not had one of those experiences was the time i developed a bit of a psycho stalker.
will i feel bad for not using it with people? ya, i always have. i think its almost necessary for raids to keep everyone informed.
another big thing for me is imagination. most people who know me in-game and not personally know that im pretty dedicated to “living” it. the only exceptions are “brb gotta pee” and whatnot. hearing the crackle of doritos from someone on vent destroys the illusion for me. hearing SLAYER! screaming in the distance when gangreyn talks …well it mostly just makes me want to throw small automobiles at him. the point of “living” in a fantasy realm is to… “live” in the fantasy realm! do my characters sound like me? hell no. heck i get so involved when theres no “RL” distractions (be it here with me or just mention of real-live in text in the game) that i can even see my characters gestures that i can only type (like -.- which is quite common for the furker…cause that beneras chap can be a downright annoyance).
so ya.. thats my rant on using “RL” voice in a fantasy mmorpg. i can see it being used easily in like some sci-fi shooting game. just…cmon… fantasy? :/

also… the furk is sad. shes in a leveling slump. just tired of grinding quest after quest and then having no quests left in an area and too low of level to move to a different area. poor girl :( go cheer her up. she likes icecream, candy, and shiny nickels. no nickels? gold works. oh quit bitching…its not REAL money. its fake. so give it away.
