Random ThoughtsNovember 6, 2008
…How I look in game and what I see should be the same as what other people see. That includes whether I’ve toggled my helmet/cloak on or off, and any pocket item emotes/animations I use.
…When Snafzg and I play together using Skype, we have a weird habit of singing about what we’re doing: “I’m killing… an OOOOOORC! He is… quite DEAAAAAAD!”
…Don’t get my hopes up by actually popping another scenario in T3 than Tor Anroc, then shutting it down within a minute because the population in it is imbalanced! Arghh!
…Don’t ever, ever get me started on how much I loathe Badlands in vent. There is no end to my spit-flecked ranting.
…I’m waiting on full patch notes to comment on 1.05… so stay tuned!
…I feel bad for the guy at GameRiot who has to archive every single post I’ve written for this blog so far.
…People still don’t seem to be using general chat channels (zone-wide) that much.
…I can’t wait for another live event. I feel a bit bad — hanging my head low — that I didn’t max out my Witching Night INF bar, but the rewards didn’t motivate me so much to get it done.
…I just want to be in T4 already, and I’m getting impatient of watching the slow-as-snails XP bar creep up there. I don’t think I’m alone in wishing for the salad days of faster leveling in beta.
…I’d be perfectly okay with a severe reduction of the number of quests in this and other MMOs if the quests they developed are repeatable, memorable and offered elements outside of killing/grinding/collecting. And if they told a great story.
…I went into Nordenwatch the other night on my Runepriest, and I kid you not — my entire group, apart from Snafzg, were all Runepriests. I guess they’re a pretty insanely popular career to play… or at least to alt!
