I think I'll be trying a cold just to see how it goes with my wizard. Though I'm torn between metor or blizzard in force.

So wait... Blizzard's argument is that if you make a fan mod for a blizzard game that turns super popular, Blizzard owns it?
In most places if you make a mod based on someone elses assets they own it. The only places it doesn't apply are generally meshes, textures and music. This is more so held true when you're using their toolkit to make it.

In California gift cards don't have sales tax, can't have service fees, and they aren't permitted to have expiration dates unless printed on the cards in a certain size font prior to sale. Digital or retail.

Is that unique? I thought that was the norm.
Unique. Some places have that some don't. I believe Ontario passed a law making it so, but I could be wrong.

Awesome. I hope they don't give a fuck about the negative wrap this will inevitably get and cave.
Damn I tell ya, if anything has made me tempted to toss cash at a kickstarter this is it. This was one of the big games at lan parties to play that I went to.

It's solo friendly, but it also gets boring. I stopped after one character got close to 30.

You fly to a planet, clear 4-5 zones, fly back home and scream in frustration as you try to manipulate the AH UI, list some shit that no one buys, and then find another planet and repeat. And after 4-5 times of that cycle, you start to wonder why you're bothering with it.

It's like it was all grind and no real reward.

Damn if all of that isn't spot on and true. Oh and fully quote worthy.

In other brighter news:

EA stock has hit an all-time low, it has reached July 99 levels.

EA appears to be now a target for a takeover or acquisition.
Oddly I mentioned that this would happen about 5mo ago, and it would be worthwhile to pick up a few hundred shares. Someone will buy them out and they'll pop back up. The only question is who, as it stands I haven't heard squat.

As an extremely casual player, I've always wondered -- what was the point of making you identify stuff and repair your gear? Did they test it without these things and players's brains just rejected a game that let you keep hacking away without ever going back to town? Or do some people find the restock and repair parts fun?
Mostly to sink gold into something. Same reason as to why there's a repair system in WoW, which there wasn't early in the vanilla beta.

I still want to know what Blizzard and their fanboys like Krowen are going to come up with as an excuse when dupes start showing up anyway.
So tell me something, how many dupes have you seen in WoW? It's a valid comparison.

Well there is a secret. Ninja moles inside the PC.

Flatline wrote on May 7, 2012, 15:50:
Is it going to break dupers though? Where there's a will there's a way.
More than likely. It's unprofitable to cheat in WoW unless you're using stolen accounts, or they're using accounts that have been bunged off for powerleveling. If there is duping it's very small time, since every item that's created in the game is assigned a unique trackable ID. The one time there was a dupe bug in WoW, a few hundred thousand people had their ill-gotten T5 stripped off of them.

Oh wait, the only differences are that one has an RMAH and always-online DRM.
To be perfectly honest, if you're going to allow a RMAH, there's no real way to get around it. It's going to have to have an 'always on' connection if nothing to break dupers, and reducing the chances of seeing 29370879878909 SoJ's. Like we saw last time, you know, in D2.

True on that. Caffine from tea also metabolizes differently, meaning you don't feel it the same way you do from coffee.

I've looked at it, but I'll wait for reviews before buying it. Especially with 35 other games now waiting in the wings to be played and beaten.

There is always a market, it's knowing where and how to exploit that market to make money. I play the currency markets to supplement my expenses, I'm good enough that I make between $4k and $10k/mo. So...yes.

That is unfortunate news. The 15% cut pretty much guarantees that you wont be able to make any significant amount of gold - or even a profit for that matter - buying items which are listed below market value and then reselling them. That's a shame, I used to enjoy doing that in WoW, but the margins are typically less than 15% of the undercut price.
I used to play the AH in WOW got quite good at it, made 50k-100k a month without breaking a sweat by the time I stopped playing two years ago. Gave everything but 11k away when I stopped just incase I started again and needed seed money. Well I've played 3 times since I resubbed out of that 11k I now have 86k in gold pretty good turn around using only 3k of that to start off with. Now if only the markets could give me a turn around like that.

Besides, even with 30% lost, you're getting a 70% for nothing but playing the game, and if you're playing the market correctly again you should make a good return. I figure I should make enough to cover my wow 1yr sub out of this, and maybe some extra on top from just casual play.

That's not true. If it was true then you'd have to wait for terrorists to blow something up, or for child molesters to ruin a kid for life.

Seriously, stop and think about it for a second. We arrest people for planning to do things all the time. If we wait for them to actually do it we'd be screwed.
It it true to a point though. You still have to have compelling evidence to prove that the plan is more than a plan and they're in the stages of enacting it. The only part of law in the US or Canada that allows otherwise is traffic law where no mens rea is required.
