    Yeah, it seems like every online game's forums are over-populated with whiney little kids. At least we have community forums.

    I found that Lineage 2 is fun in a simple, let's whack some orcs together, kind of way. The graphics were good enough and killing PKers was pretty fun at times. I almost made it to lvl 20 by the end of open beta, I was lvl 19 and had never gotten close to an 'important' lvl in an online game before, but my modem got fried in a freak storm and it took 3 weeks to get a replacement.

    As for changing the world, Wish was the closest I've found to doing it. Its overall story was supposed to take direction based on people's actions during 'live events'. You had the usual newspaper and players could even have monuments dedicated to them. Also, just about everything was craftable.

    the gnomish battle chicken requires gnomish engineering (which any class or any race can have)

    as for only doing instances, that just wont work Snake. instances give pretty bad xp (raid instances even worse), so it would take AGES to lvl up.

    every class has their ups & downs Rosh.

    shaman: versatile jack-of-all-trades but does not excell at anything
    druid: good healer if heal-specced, pretty good soloer, useless in higher lvl instances unles heal-specced
    rogue: gankerextraordinaire, handy, but as good as useless in the highest lvl instance in the game (onyxia)
    priest: uberchar, but useless in instances unless heal specced
    warrior: bad pvp, always needed for high lvl instances
    warlock: nice tricks, but not that necessary for high lvl instances

    Yea your right Suaside. But when your like lvl 30ish and go to SM you can get a huge amount of xp there. I mustve gotten 4 lvls there trying to get that amu.

    Warlocks nice tricks? Onpending doom man, 3200 damage over 1 min. Then theres all the instant curses you can throw making warlocks one of the best classes there is IF you know how to use it.

    You also forgot Hunter wich is as good as useless in instances but great in pvp's.

    I play mostly on Silver Hand and Shadow Council. Since I detest morons, I enjoy the RP server rules that state that most forms of chat can't be OOC, including General, and harassment of RPers (which includes spamming up the chat with idiocy) is a suspendable offense.

    Well, I've recently discovered that Skenvoy, Strider and myself all play on Crushridge, and as Alliance (with our primaries at least). So if anyone feels like joining a server you would recive a warm welcome from us. The thing lags like a bitch sometimes after recent realm transfers, but I'm too far into my char (37 warlock now) to realistically consider a new server. My guild doesn't suck either (Chaos Incorporated, even if the name is kinda cheesy), so if you want a guild, lemme know: Kelmurdoch, gnome miner/eng!

    And how did you do the char thing Odin? that's pretty cool! err, nevermind, I used my superior intellect to figure it out, yay!

    NO game should cost more than 15$ to buy, and the very thought of having to pay a monthly, daily or hourly fee to play a game makes me physically ill.
    Consoles and MMOs will bring the end of civilization, mark my words.

    I typically buy a game a month, at 25-50$ a pop. A monthly fee for a game I'll play for many months, esp with the first month free, is a good deal. And if you want games for less than $15 you are either Polish or living in 1985. Get with the program, DDD. And a better name while you're at it.

    DDD is right. Anything above $0 for a game is outrageous.. :)

    Aren't you suposed to be some sort of techno-weenie mod? If I, who can't even figure out FTP, can figure it out, so can you.

    (time elapsed to find page: ~45 seconds)

    How... crude. Murdoch was pretty civil to you and even made a joke at his own expense, yet you flame him and shove your laziness and ineptitude in his face. How about you leave now and come back when your period is over?

    You don't have time to check the whole site, even if you wanted too. Okay...

    Yet you have time to help make a mod for Fallout 2, and play WoW?

    *sigh*

    Just curl up and die, so we don't ever have to deal with you again. K?

    Actually, I think it was more like:

    "I want to know how to do that kewl stuff with my character and I'll do it too! If only someone would help me find the menu page on that site thingy I can't be bothered to look at and take even more time coming up with a flame than looking for myself!"

    No actually it was more like:

    Why not show my lvl 56 Warlocks for everyone too see and admire but wait, wow reader? whats that? Maybe if it said char uploader or had some instructions to it I wouldve found it.
    Anyway I tried uploading my char but all I get after completion is a

    blank screen with no items or points at all.

    I would believe this load of shit if it weren't for the fact that WowReader is not only under the Character Profiles menu, but it gives a complete description of the mod - when none of the other links obviously went to uploading your character data. Amazing concept, this context thing, isn't it?

    I think your previous post entailing your laziness was more to the point. I'm just wondering how you think we'd accept your lying when the proof is in the same thread, although on that thought, I'll also accept your second explanation that you're an idot.

    Let me guess...you didn't have enough time to bother reading the instructions included with it?

    Please, if you're not going to bother and then issue flames, let us know.
