How are things?

Postby Smobu » 08 Mar 2013, 16:46

After being away for a while now I wonder how things are with people and the general state of WOW itself, my pc is still broken and work is only a day here and there so i still won't have the money for a new pc for a while.

Things are ok, new patch is here so lots of fun things to explore. The new daily area is nice with interesting dailies and of course more rep to grind. The new battle pets are really nice and the challenge pets are a challenge from what I hear.

A few of us in the guild had a fun time hunting down some of the new rare mobs (sadly not the ones that drop mounts) which was good fun. Some rather tricky and some really weren't!

I can't say i've seen any changes in the state of the server population and doubt we will anytime soon. General feel is though that the patch is a good one although I can't comment raid wise of course.

Me and Kate are ticking along as usual. We've been helping Debs get back in to things now she has MoP so we have a bit of a levelling group going and its nice to see Debs back.

I know you are missed within the guild as I often get asked if there is any news on you and your computer. Fish is of course slacking lots with out you around to shout at him ;-)

Fingers crossed the work front picks up soon, not just so that you can repair your pc but more so for you as I know how the lack of work is stressful as it brings the lack of money. That said, selfishly we hope that you get some huge cash bonus so that we can drag you back online!

How are you filling your hours these days with out the drain on time that is WoW? ;)

A friend of mine got me to play Dc Universe Online on the ps3 which is FTP nowadays(ofc when FTP don't get full options)and i was having fun with that and he paid one month for me but after the month passing by and i was FTP again i knew i could only play with 2 chars as FTP player so i first clicked my main ofc and then they decided that was the one i couldn't play anymore so now am bored as hell cuz don't wanna play when not able to play the char i invested that month in, but in all i like the game and it isn't such a grindfest as WOW which is a big plus cuz when i catch up i can wait till new content comes without having to play.
So far i noticed the creators listen to the ppl as they did bring the servers down to only 4(Eu ps3, US ps3, EU PC, US PC) after having low popped servers, and other complaints also always get attention over time.
The game is more action orientated then WOW thus need faster reaction capabilities which to me is very fun,
TBH so far i've had no withdrawel symptoms after having to stop WOW and thus far haven't missed the game itself, only the ppl i play with i do miss, but also noticed that Eleanora hasn't been online since i went away since i talked to him on the ps3 and since my own hosts just went downhill last few weeks i played without him it's prolly best my pc broke down or it might have been a quit instead of a break.
I will of course be coming back in the future but if i ever play as intensively as i used to remains the question, cuz the course blizzard is taking with games lately has not been one i liked as most prolly already know of me complaining about stuff, specially the rediculous amount of mounts n pets added each patch and the droprates remaining total crap it's just becoming a bigger grindfest for a non-raider like me.
Anyway i'll be checking in here again tomorrow but since my aunt works during weekdays won't be able to check back after the weekend till next weekend

I just saw 5.3 info...even more pets added...another bunch for old instances again...ppl at blizz must be out of fresh ideas, so how are things in the guild atm? Started raiding yet? Are ppl still on? And how are the people that are active atm?
Also just saw note Wow subscriptions are down to 8.3 mill....was 10 mill when my pc broke down so that means even more ppl run away, they still haven't changed their minds about the servers?

Hey Smobu!

There were a bunch of new pets but at least some of them are unique rather than just a re-skinned old one. That being said, they are just the bosses model in mini!

Things in the guild are...quiet. Not raiding unless you count those of us who throw our selves in LFR to be tortured by PuGs.

There are still people still on, just a small number of us. Me and Kate are not on much at all at the moment due to real life. My health hasn't been great so the little time I am awake some times is limited so it means less for WoW and Kate is run off her feet with looking after me and visiting her Grandma in hospital along with all the other extra things she does to help out family and friends, so by the time she gets home she usually ends up going to bed.

Everyone who is active are good, I think those still around don't really worry about all the moaning a lot of the general WoW population complain about. We just get along with what we want to do.

More people have given up, and I can't say I'm surprised. They did kind of make a few mistakes that cost them a lot of people. The whole gated reputations and people feeling that they were forced to do dailies. While they've tried to solve this issue, a lot of it is too little too late. I think even Blizzard know they are going to loose more, I think a lot of people are waiting to see what gets announced at Blizzcon and decide then about quitting before or at the end of this expansion.

I'm still enjoying the game for what I take from it. That said, I am having to think seriously about how long I continue to play, more from a financial point. With lots of games going Free to play and me being short of cash these days, I will have to look at how much I'm playing and whether I want to continue in to another expansion. Knowing my enjoyment of the universe I know deep down I'll stay in to the new expansion and make my choice then.

The servers are still a big issue and that will come in to my decision. This patch the DMF went CRZ so the Rabbit is harder to farm and to start with they were letting too many in and it was a little crazy. CRZ isn't helping much apart from the new "event" in the Barrens. Mainly because there is only a weekly quest to collect a load of resources, which you choice is to grind, fly around looking for caravans to escort or loot or kill the bosses. With a group its much faster to kill the bosses but you need 3-5 people so having random people around help and thats only because Blizzard really didn't think the event through. Apart from a small storyline part, its all 1 annoying weekly.

Shattered Halls is still pretty dead, there are still familiar faces around but not as many as there used to be.

Anyway, enough of me ranting. How are you? Still playing DC Universe?

Yeah still playing but the people i know IRL had their own guild but they threw in the towel after new content patch hit cuz impatient ppl couldn't wait till we had more mebers(the usual guild stuff) so now am in another guild and looking to see wheter that one is one to stay in, also bought Doom 3 BFG for ps3 so am also gonna be busy with that in meanwhile since i have nothing much i can do on my own in DC anymore.
Also my return to WOW is still far away, mostly been on survival mode last couple of months and starting last month finally started making some money again, so now first pay the stack of bills and give back loaned money and such so with that in mind if things keep moving up mabe able to buy new pc around start of the next year but that is the optimistic me, prolly work gonna get slow again around the winter so mabe time to look for a sugernanny :P.
Sucks to hear things haven't gotten any better for u and kate :( hope u at least won/win the court thingy against ur former employer then mabe life will get somewhat better with that bit of extra cash.
Mabe in ur better days rub kate's feet a little, such small things help a lot when u gotta move around much.
Also saw most of u are playing Rift now so mabe need to start playing that game by the time i get a new pc cuz i do miss being in contact with a lot of ppl, also kick Fishy around for me cuz he needs some tough love now that i'm still away :P

The new expansion rly shows Blizz is out of good ideas, prolly not coming back to WOW apart from stripping my char and sending the stuff away if i ever get a new pc cuz there's still one more year of crisis in the building sector so not going to happen soon, also with Elder Scrolls Online looking good prio goes to a ps4.

Sooooo, I've been really busy with real life then forgetting my username and pass word here! Am still playing though i wish more people were i miss smobu!! and others, it is a shame that i am not online so much, i think having my little sister live with me full time has definitely easten into my wow time :<
I will travel cross Azeroth,
Searching far and wide,
Non Combat Pets to understand,
The power of the Light.
Non Combat Pets, its you and me,
Ignore the fact that I’m a talking tree,
Non Combat Pet, oh, you’re my best friend,
AZEROTH WE MUST DEFEND!

According to the government the crisis is over....yet there's still barely any work also mostly thanks to that same governments great actions, all bills just keep rising higher and higher(example rent has increased 6% a year the last 3 years..)
But i was able to get a ps4 with selling my old consoles, so am a bit closer to a new gfx card although the rest of my pc is now slowly breaking down so I prolly gonna need more than a new gfx card.
On the other hand i got a m8 who says he can fix my gfx card so i will soon try that.
On another note; didn't know there was anyone alive except Fish in Azeroth, good to see someone else, mabe learn how to read messages on playstation would help a bit kate :P, or have alan check it once in a while as he responded to one once.
Anyway hope all is ok with everyone, i hope to come back to wow soon but i just don't see it happening anytime soon though :(

Just saw the new trailers from blizzcon, so the legion is coming back finally it looks like a decent expansion again(story wise).
But still not able to buy a new pc yet and all i can do on this one now is visit websites and run my anti-virus ><.
So is anyone still alive in the clan?
If yes how are things nowadays?
And also a question towards the new expansion since i haven't played the last one: Is Sargeras revived/going to be revived?
Also is an update about my last post my mate wasn't able to fix my gfx card.
