  1. I saw my first speed hacker the other day, a shaman (who yes, has now been reported :() zipping around like an idiot. They started by saying "can go 400km n hr if u lt me!" and no one really knew what they were talking about, until they got the flag and were over the other side in about 5 seconds flat. Very strange, made everything quite buggy, got it on video though hehe :blink: No escape!

  2. My Blizzard Downloader only seems to be popping up when I close WoW, by which time I want to go sleep :blink: so I've not got anywhere yet.

    I never use BitTorrent otherwise but I'll check out this uTorrent thingyme, cheers for the heads up :(

  3. www.wowace.com is my AddOn bible these days. Ditched all the CT stuff (bar a few little tweaky features) in favour of Ace2 mods - my friend on a less well-specced machine saw his FPS double by doing this.

    CTRaid Assist -> oRA2 (handles the MT List, Ready checks etc, fully compatable with CTRA)

    CTRaid Assist Boss Mods -> Bigwigs Boss Mods (Boss Alert mod complete with timer bars and FFVII Fanfare for victory!)

    CTRaid Assist Emergency Monitor -> Squishy Emergency Monitor, shows anyone in a definable range who has aggro, uses arrows to indicate if they are you, in your party, or a high-priority target. Shows who has a HoT on them and who is being healed. Less intrusive by far than CT Raid's Emergency monitor :D

    Decursive -> Detox. More customisable, seems to just be 'cleaner'.

    Titan Panel -> FuBar - has a lot more nifty features in it too, and all Ace2 addons feature on it along with things like Bagspace, Experience Monitor, Money, whatever you want.

  4. I defended the lack of answer in the beginning, when people were here posting whilst the officers were mostly still asleep/raiding.

    The decision to kick in the middle of the night, well, I never really defended that. I said there's pros and cons to both ways of doing it, and that you can never really win whichever way.

    I remember a guild member in Swiped, for example, getting kicked in the middle of Nefarian attempts. Or one /gquitting in similar circumstances. I can't remember if I was leading the raid or not, but either way, it was pretty 'disturbing', for want of a better word.

  5. Myeh, I've always taken things too personally, and yes I found it upsetting to see something I really like being dragged through the mud. Fair enough, water cooler, etc etc, gossip blah blah, but seriously if this were a water cooler and a few people were chatting and someone was a bit miffed about some of the stuff that was said about something they genuinely care about (there, I said it), you expect them not to say anything?

    *looks at how many stuffs/somethings/other vague words are in the above*

  6. Unique situation I suppose, Mr Ben has spoken a lot about Chimaera here... I'm sure the officers were a bit hurt by it all, for it to have come to this.

    It's rare that people act in the best possible way when angry/upset.

  7. I don't consider it 'blind' defence of 'the' guild - I consider it defence of MY guild. You don't see Chimaera members going off on one about how Passion or whoever treat their members when they have issues. Ok so maybe they aren't brought to this forum so much, but you don't see us throwing around words like pathetic, 'cold-hearted shit'. But then, I've never been one to throw around insults when I don't know the full story :)

    The thing is, it's been dealt with now, whichever which way. The plague of forums is that there's a reply every few minutes, when in the real world, sometimes it's a few hours before a person gets back to their PC to do something. Me, I just troll forums at work.

    But what do I know, I'm not a real rllmuker, 'coz I just troll the WoW forum and am not part of the clique :) (but for the record, a long time lurker -Joined: 29-November 05)

  8. You'd still get fuss for a /gquit though. It's a tricky one, with pros and cons both sides. Yes, I'd hate to be the person who suddenly had no guild one morning, but Ben did get reasoning, if a little late, and I'm sure he could've perhaps guessed at those reasons etc especially in conjunction with this forum until a mutually beneficial time came about to discuss things. But at the same time, having been raiding with a guild for so long, and knowing how things work, the lightbulb of common sense would suggest to me that, yeah, maybe doing it in the dead of night is a good thing.

    But then again, I am the girl who attempted to /gquit into the shadows at 2am but got caught by the GM who saw me making a suspiciously titled post on the forum at the same time :) - it wasn't to be cowardly, but because as someone who was heavily involved in the organisation of the guild, I knew I'd end up with lots of whispers, maybe disrupt a raid, and not properly get to explain myself in /Guild chat. Allowing myself the time to make an essay of a post meant I could think it through and structure it how I wanted. Perhaps this works both ways. Though I don't know how Ben was told.

    Short answer: IMO, there is never one best way of doing stuff like this.

  9. 2x25 is a mess though. Even with Zul'Gurub if you spread it over two days it's "Which raid were you in? Which ID do you have? Where is X?"...

    But from the sounds of it these 25 man instances are HUGE... no chance of doing it in a night?

    So let's say I can make a raid Monday, Tuesday, but not Wednesday.

    I'll be saved to that instance, and other people will be in another raid saved to that one.

    Unless there's an unsaved person over the previous two days, there's no option to replace me.

    It's going to get very messy :'(

    And then there's the A-Team/B-Team aspect..

  10. Again, this thread was replied to at 5am and evidently the kick decision was made then.

    Mr Ben has his answers, is that not enough for you people? :) Stop making drama, Ben's moved onto other topics ;)

    Call it cold-hearted shit if you will, but in my experience, /gkicking a member with 50+ people online (and in some cases, in the middle of a raid) leads to drama and intense lack of focus if in a raid. Instead of having a million people go "WTF?" this has been dealt with swiftly, and dealing with only those involved.

    (Well, + a whole forum who feel the need to sling mud at a guild, ofc)
