Lol at the Daily Fail headline. I don't even want to read the article.

News Comments > World of Warcraft AU Servers Planned
2. Re: World of Warcraft AU Servers Planned Oct 24, 2014, 11:41 Wallshadows
 
Even with a datacenter in Australia, wouldn't there still be latency issues when using anything cross-realm with US servers since they're not being region locked much in the same way the EU and US server?

Is the information only going as far as the Aussie server? Wouldn't there still need to be some data between the Aussie and US server? Should I buy a book about networking?

Nothing but bullshit coming from Ubisoft lately...well, more than usual anyway. Then again, they've been on my shitlist for a while now so I wouldn't even buy it if it ran on a wrist watch.

They let go of some key very public-facing guys, like their Lead Client Developer, a couple Senior Art Director type guys, and I think one of their main Dungeon/Raid design guys.

I wonder if they're still as active as they once were on the WildStar subreddit page? That was one of the better parts of Carbine on top of their transparency.

Edit: Eek, their subreddit page is in hard shape too.

Given how Carbine is really starting to compact the Wildstar community, that's not surprising to see some jobs go. 60 though, especially for a 'small' dev team is probably a fair chunk of their staff.

Interesting.

Yeah, WoW has botters. But the level of trust ArcheAge places in the client software is insane.

You mean to tell me ArcheAge is about as legit as open Battle.net was in Diablo 2?

Alright, I concede my comparison.

Lets be honest though, the amount of players who were just gifted or handed gold from strangers to those who outright bought it is likely extremely low and it's not like those who just happened to be at the right place at the right time aren't really losing anything.

I like the idea that they can track gold and nip distribution in the bud because you'd have to be incredibly naive to believe that they would be able to neutralize every exploit in the game. Warcraft still has rampant duping and botting methods and it's almost ten years old. They patch in restrictions as quick as the ownedcore community discovers new methods and that's just the way it works.

The only way they can outright destroy the need for gold sellers to exist is to, and I want to throw up in my mouth for saying this, offer an in game service which offers competitive methods of gaining wealth.

Otherwise, it'll continue to be a game of cat and mouse.

Kuestions for you webheads out there. I registered my first domain with Fatcow last year but I'd like to change to someone else as I find they're really scummy and nickle and dime everything.

Have you looked in to Register.com? I don't know if they are strictly Canadian but they have a large office/tech support center in my town and are generally on the ball with competitive prices.

Why is the quote tag breaking itself? Thanks for the tip!

Generally speaking, if I am in the market for buying computer parts, I'll check out directcanada.ca for flat, solid shipping costs with very competitive prices, often cheaper than other e-tailers such as Newegg and NCIX. Speaking of NCIX, I used to praise them like a Bible thumper did the bible until they decided I no longer live on a heavily trafficked area and have to pay almost twice as much for ground shipping.

When I'm not home, they'll leave a door-hanger saying it'll be available at the local post office after 4. Anything that goes through Canada Post though is a hassle. It's slow, they don't leave the door-hanger on the door 80% of the time, and they're slow. Whenever I see it's being shipped through them, I have to cover my face and cry a little.

Still waiting on Dark Knight before I really give it another chance and that'll likely never happen since people seem to have boners for dainty jobs.

The only good RE movies are the two animated films which 90% of the fans aren't even aware of existing. All this shit that Paul W.S. Anderson worked on tarnished the series more than anything ever could have so I hope it's a clean reboot rather than build on whatever the hell they have planned for the, what, sixth movie or something?

The last entry I 'saw' was when shitty model actress #1923 started to gain psionic powers while on the set of Mad Max and I just stopped. It was hard enough getting through the second movie and then to see that, I'm so far out of caring for this series that I can have a disco party on the rings of Saturn.

FF14 is the only MMO I have ever played where it won't honor the remaining time on your subscription after you cancel the game. I had about half a month left when I canceled my subscription and it may as well have told me to fuck off.

I had to run a system restore on my system because Windows kept on hanging at the start up screen likely caused by a driver shitting the bed. When I finally got back to my desktop, I went to fire up A:I and noticed it was greyed out.

My system restore did something I never thought was possible and removed the game and thus my save files. So now I have to spend another eight hours to download and play catch up for another seven or so and I just don't feel up to doing it right now.

Sort of extinguished the flame of wanting to play the game for now.

I never understood how Nielsen ratings worked. How can watching TV relay information back to say that I am and how is that information measured based on channel surfing or watching the program? I mean, if I stumble across Vision TV because it's there, does someone in a booth get an erection because they now have one viewer? How do they even get the age range down?
