[World of Warcraft] I like to visit the Blizzard WoW forums in my “I dunno WTF to do” moods. I typically visit the class forums, which means the mage forums currently, considering that’s my main class right now.
The mage forums were actually getting pretty sickening. Mages feel forgotten and gimped, and they have no reassurance from Blizzard, beyond the promise of an invisible spell a while ago, which has not been added or even explained or hinted at when it will be added since then. Beyond that, there has not been a “blue” post yet (“blue” refers to a Blizzard rep who posts on the forums).
Of course, this can simply be classified as the typical class whining you see on almost every class forum. However, I’d say a good 80% of topics on each page of the mage forums is filled with complaints, proofs of gimpness, or joke topics making fun of the situation.
Yesterday (or was it two days ago? Where am I…) some people posted a couple or so posts talking about a mage strike. I’m assuming they were thinking of something along the lines of the warrior strike a long time ago (as seen here at The Cesspit). Later that day, guess what happens! A “blue,” named Tseric, posts! In fact, he’s still posting. What’s the problem? Well, he appears to be at the mage forums for no reason, except making them even madder. The only thing he has said thus far has only described that the future for mages doesn’t appear to be changing much. In fact, most of his posts are either stupid joke posts, which he got flamed for and has not done since, or posts arguing against mages for their complaints. It’s a funny coincidence that this guy comes to our forums the day people begin posting about a strike.
I believe he stepped on an ant bed. A lot of the complaints are about fire mages. It must be a fire ant bed. Ouch!
