Fast on the heels of the Panda expansion comes the MMORPG of Leibowitz DLC.

This was rather mildly upsetting to me yesterday. They had to hotfix the servers, which was most likely related to the possible login issues that lasted for hours after they brought the servers back online.

I was working on guild rep, damnit. Damn you hackers!

Normally Blizzard applies a hotfix while the servers are live. The rolling restart and subsequent delay was unexpected, but I don't think it was related.

I killed them. I killed them all. They're dead, every single one of them. And not just the men, but the women and the children, too. They're like animals, and I slaughtered them like animals. I HATE THEM!

Hotfixes can sometimes fix things on the fly, other times they don't take affect till the next server restart, this was a case of requiring an immediate restart to fix the problem relating to the above (there's a strong belief that this wasn't a case of "hacking" per say, in as much as someone figured out how to get access to a finger of death style mod item that kills everything in a zone).

The big issue was something happening to the login shiat that took nearly 2+ hours to fix, weird part was it didn't affect everyone.

No, no, no, no, no, you-you don't understand the scope of my crime. I didn't kill just one Orc, or a hundred, or a thousand. I killed them all. All Orcs, everywhere

I thought it was interesting that it was happening as they forced server restarts as this was going on. Then there were folks who had issues getting back online of upwards of 90 minutes...

I wonder if some of this was to hold off hackers?

WoW and EVE are two different types of games. WoW goes for the full on fake sense of accomplishment while EVE is just an extreme spreadsheet.

They should do this on purpose. Actually shake up their player base. Make something happen worth fighting against.

I know that Blizzard has acknowledged this, but that video clearly shows it happening on a private server.

EVE gives you the fake sense of accomplishment, then takes it away and crushes it.

This just goes to show ya that we now have the C team working at Blizzard. Way to not remove access to dev commands.

Serious business, certainly.

I laugh at WoW players who look at dying in that game as any sort of setback. From folks who complain about 'griefing' like this to folks who will rage-quit a raid after one or two wipes. Generation: Entitlement is a group who have never played a game that had actual consequence for actions.

I actually feel bad for them.

That was okay...but kinda wooden. Try it again from the top, and this time really sell the emotion involved here. Put yourself in Anakin's shoes. We want the audience to feel what he's feeling.

Quiet on the set, please. Take 2. Lights, camera ... action!

Yeah, how dare people play games to have fun.

Lies, Lucas never did a second take in the prequels.

Just curious, but what are the consequences for death in WOW? I know in GW2, I either get revived by a player or have to pay a couple coins to respawn at a waypoint of my choice.

I remember the early EQ days, where you had to run halfway across the map b/c you spawned at your home city. If you were a lower level and were killed by a giant, you usually had to beg a higher level to drag your body to a safer area.

Those were the days.
