#3707979 Has WoW had a negative or positive influence on your life?

Woudln't blaming the drug and not yourself be very bad? I might be wrong but I believe a common excuse for addicts is that it's the fault of the drug and there isn't anything they can do about it

"The problem isn't the product but you" sounds reasonable to me..

Actually in todays society you can always shift the blame on to something else than yourself. Be it extreme music and video games making you to steal your daddys deer hunting rifle and popping few at school, peer pressure from "wrong" friends making you tag some walls and shoplift or shitty parenting making kids behave badly at school. I know these examples are bit over the top but the same logic applies to numerous things.

So easy for fuck ups not having to take responsibility for their own shit these days.

Positive. It's entertained me, and it's just another thing my husband and I do together.

Someone had to say it.

Most of the people here are tricking themselves into believing that the past few years of their lives spent playing this game have been useful.

That's just my .02 not trying to insult anyone.

Did Wow kill your cat? Did you get fired or something?

#3775426 The Arena Junkies PvP interview with Greg "Ghostcrawler" Street

But most importantly. The arena scene needs to understand that the guys without junkie status make the tournaments succesful. Look at Team Liquid for an example. High rated players discuss with newbies and those that stay in gold or even silver for two years straight. The current arena scene is very elitist and we need to make the whole playerbase feel welcome.

I couldn't agree more on this, I see like maybe 5-10% of the highrated streamers actually answer the guys that whisper to them, the rest just ignores them and they all act like they're gods. And they ofcourse act like they don't know anyone of the other highrated players even when they got their ass whooped 1 billion times by them. Hydra and Minpojke come to mind as prime examples, as many other highrated streamers ofcourse. Just calling out the most obvious dickheads.

Why do you think someone like Ocelote has a ton of viewers everyday? Because he is the best player? Hell no. He just interacts with his viewers and tries to answer as many questions as possible and when he gets asked about another pro player, it doesnt go like: "WHO IS THIS HUEUHE FKING RANDOM PROBABLY XD", but he actually gives his honest opinion.

People ranting about communities in DotA/HoN or other games, just dont know about the elitist WoW retard scene.

The DK in S5 was that strong because the devs listened to forum feedback, among that AJ. The community claimed DKs would be easily kited and were very weak overall. This is one big reason why the devs listen less to the PvP community. When was the last time a top-notch player explained why his class was too strong? We need to make feedback of higher quality, like Elitist Jerks does for example.

Not trying to be a dick, but the whole way this has happened seems a bit.. under-planned?

ArenaJunkies has a chance to interview WoW's lead systems developer, Ghostcrawler.  The community isn't really included, we're told about the interview's existence a day before it happens and are told to post some questions we might have, but a list of questions has already been predetermined and we are told that there are no guarantees that any questions will be added.

Now, how could it be a bad thing for us to have been given more notice about the interview, leading to more questions being thought of by the community as a whole, instead of an individual(or group of them) deciding the questions?

I really feel like this had a lot of potential, but that the whole situation was handled pretty poorly.

Just my two cents.

Sadly, In your post you make no effort to show any sort of appreciation to not only arenajunkies , but no appreciation to the guy who is actually putting in the effort to get the interview. If you make your own arenajunkies.com, you too can do whatever you want. Until then be thankful for what you get.

Ok, fair transformation, you're at least on the right track if your back and legs can compare.

I'm going to try not to sound like I'm trying to disencourage anything or put anyone down here - But I can't help but facepalming at all the teenboys that spent two months in the gym just to consider themselves fitness-guru's. It's ridiculous from the point of view of someone that has been doing this for years at a professional level and see this kids build as nothing more than average - for a kid. A freshman. I'm pretty sure my body could compare to this when I was 12-14 years old. I deadlifted 240, squatted 200 and benched 180kg's raw at the age of 20 and I have always had a "aestethic" appearance, as aestethic as it gets for a natural lifter. But - what I can do and not is really irrelevant, and there are defineately alot of people out there that was stronger and in better shape than I ever was at that age.
I can't help but using of Billian as a prime example here, with his videos of benchpresses when he's lying absolutely flat on the bench with his elbows nearly straight out (among other things), like he had absolutely no idea about form. He still seemed to be presenting himself as a fitness guru on these forums like he was the guy to educate people here about training despite of the fact he couldn't be arsed to do enough research to learn proper and safe technique for himself. I hope for his own sake that he have gotten better since then. To elaborate, lying flat on the bench while benchpressing will almost certainly cause shoulder injuries in the long run. Tate and Rippetoe would probably bitchslap anyone for putting videos with form like that out in any kind of educational context.

Show some responsibility, show some respect for other people instead of trying to feed on the clueless. Some degree of self-critisism and sense of reality would be great. If anything, the ability to be honest with yourself is nothing but priceless for your own sake when it comes to building and strength. And to anyone that wants to get into training, for strength or shape, seek advice from professionals at your gyms, and check out sites with professional tutors that actually got some education and insight into anatomy, mobility and nutrition. Mark Rippetoe and Starting Strength is always a great place to learn some of the basics, from someone that knows what he's talking about. There's a overflow of false information out there and I'd hate to think of anyone hurting themselves for life because they trusted the advices from clueless freshmen with questionable experience.

My two cents, I expect nothing but hate and misc insults and attempts to derail/decredit me from people on these forums, but hey - it was worth a shot.

Might aswell tell people that they won't look like The Rock if they drink 3 protein shakes per day for a month.
