I stopped playing, but only because the developers dont know what the fuck to do with the Shaman class (my main).
There I am, standing in SSC.. healing.. but I am a DPS hybrid..
I healed from MC-Naxx.. but i'm supposed to be the DPS hybrid.

Now they nerf the Windfury damage (err, adjusted it to be "right"--cough cough) aggro dump still... no real CM representation..sigh.

my mana regen for casting still sucks as elemental.

still a bunch of shaman issues.

BUFF SHAMAN!!!!!!!!!!!

To get into BT, you have to .. i think.. Killed Nightbane, killed Magtheridon and also completed the 3 top lvl 70 instances on heroic.
Shattered Halls
---good freaking luck. It took our 5 best geared and best players 6 hours to get though Shadowlabs on heroic. These guys are insanely geared with the best Kara/Mag/Kazzak/Doomwalker/Gruul gear..and still it took that long. perfect class makeup too.
A regular Joe in a regular guild isn't going to be able to do the heroics, never mind the other fights.

So yeah.. if your guild sucks, or if you dont have a ton of time to play, you're never going to see inside of the Black Temple.
unless you play on a private server, which i am thinking of doing.. despite being able to get into the Black Temple after I complete a successful

After reading all of your responses, I now realize that this subscription model is not going to work for me.

I was so excited about the game, and now after thinking it through, I am no longer hyped. A 3d diablo+ game is not getting my 10clams a month.

Anyone remember Unreal XMP? it had promise.. but the sys requirements to run a decent game were out of this fucking world.

so.. anyhow, I kind of wish there werent as many vehicles in the game, sure i like them, but they take away from the game when it's a 20v20 server and 36 vehicles spawn in the beginning.

I hope the new game delivers. I need a new FPS to play.. why yes, i did just reinstall BF2.. okay who threw that?

Planetside was alright. but at the end of the days battles.. I just stared at the map and saw all the areas I took over and then lost and recaptured and then lost x10.
No NPC's to deal with..and a total rinse and repeat game style. I'm hoping Tabula Rasa brings more depth and more "addiction" than PS did.
I actually see enough room for WoW and WoS.. should it occur.
Although to be fair.. they could announce WoS and it could drop in 2 years.. right when WoW dies.

although I am a Shaman.. so WoW is dead to me right now.. YOU'RE DEAD TO ME!!

Well, I could easily see a MMORTS ... that would make a lot of sense. However, there are so many questions in that genre that would have to be answered.
(wasnt there a game called.. Ballerium(?) that was going to be a MMORTS?
How big would you let someones force get? is a faceless force enough to give me a personal connection to my troops? Do I get a main hero unit? The more I think about it, the more I don't see a MMORTS--to many questions.
FPS. well maybe.. and I'd be interested for sure.

or a regular Starcraft 2? sure.. why not. although I found that i didnt really get into Starcraft and found other RTS's better than both Starcraft and Warcraft.. off the top of my head.. Warlords Battlecry wtfowned Warcraft in every facet save for graphics.

If we are placing wagers.. I'd say MMOFPS.. why the fuck not.

/had a bit to drink tonight..rambling on

I absolutely LOVED CoH for a few months.. 6 ish? But the one thing it was lacking was crafting, it made the game lack depth.
I remember being a blaster and thinking "i have a gun, but I cant get a better gun.. or craft a new one".. and this was before WoW and before I knew what a real MMO was..i still new that i shouldve been able to craft stuff.

I still have the CoH cd's kicking around somewhere.. and considering I hate what WoW is doing with Shaman (my main).. i might give CoH/CoV a reacharound.

The travelling in the game, the characters, the smoothness of the playstyle.. was awesome. If CoH had the auction houses and crafting -like WoW.. from day 1.. I still might be playing it.

If they ever make a CoH2.. and I dont see why they wouldn't, I will pick it up.

i think i will reinstall CoH this weekend.

I didnt play a lot of this game.. but i did play a good bit, and in the bit i played i didnt see a damn single fault in the game..

for whatever that's worth.

oh, it should be noted that I suck at RTS's and have fuck all knowledge of how they should play.

Task has it right...

why can't we play as the "other" side for once? that'd be kinda cool. Going back to CoD1(maybe 2) when the boats were hitting the beach and the russian soldier popped one of his own guys, I would've loved to had been on the other side of that.

artillery strikes, sniping, and then falling back to different defensive positions when your forward one is lost.. that would've been pretty neato.

1. Warhammer pushed back Apr 28, 2007, 17:29 ColoradoHoudini
It's a shame that they had to push it back.. although I completely understand why. From everything I have gathered from my guild, the official and unofficial forums and general in-game chatter, people are very upset with the changes made, the nerfs, the PvP issues and the PvE problems.

I know that I am having a hard time finding a reason to log in right now, but I am a Shaman (most useless class) so that's to be understood.

That trailer looked hotter than sex inside a leather tent!

I pretty much loved everything about CoD 1 and 2 ..and a modern CoD title makes me happy.

Irfanview is the best image viewer I have ever used, going back to .. err.. 1996'ish (maybe?).
although I don't think I need to tell you PC-savvy fellas how good it is.

I'll just talk to myself now.

A couple of PC games that I have purchased semi-recently that I think are helping the overall PC cause(all solid games):
C&C 3
Supreme Commander
Dawn of War-and expansions
Company of Heroes

of course I will be ass deep in ET:QW when it drops...TF2 as well.

I'm a PC gamer first and foremost.. but I will buy whichever console comes out with a new Killer Instinct game.

although I do have a 50inch HDTV and tons of living room space for Wii fun.

I don't know much (but I know I love you).. about video game design, but this can't be just a wild similarity.

So does this prove that the Stalker folks stole source code or can anyone open up the texture files and copy them? Some one help me understand this please.
