    Well, I am expiriencing problems with my interweb, and can rarely get a full post in before it dies on me. Can I get another person (Preferably an alliance player, so there are some different opinions) to make posts on this blog. I'll give you posting priveladges, all you have to do is follow some simple rules.

1)Keep it clean

2)No gripe topics

3)Posts must preferably be open ended discussion starters

Twinks

So, I hop into Arathi basin, and what happens? Three seconds into the game, a stealthed rogues tears me a new one. It happened so fast i just about filled my pants. So i go and meet the afore mentioned rogue out in the field, Pounce him, Shred him, then start Ripping him. He turns, cracks three Sinister Strikes off, then a Kidney Punch, then two more Sinister Strikes off, followed by a Gouge, then Backstab, another Sinister Strike, then Cold Blood and Eviscerate. I died in about five seconds. I start to recognize some of his gear, and realize "Oh lovely, one of the twinkies I've been hearing whining about". I ended up changing my strategy to hitting him really fast and hard from stealth instead of stunning him. By the end, he was dead, and I died three seconds later from his poison. All I ask is why? All I hear from people is how fun endgame is. Arenas, instancing, Raids, Dailies, Skills, Fishing, Flying and even just standing in a capital and laugh as the nooblets gawk at your gear. Yet all these level 19, 29, 39, and 49 characters I have fought have been the twink alts of level 70s. That's not the worst part. My friend recently started playing WoW, and hit level 15 rather fast. He hopped down to the auction house for some gear. He has a problem. All the gear worth buying is for outrageous amounts of money. Why? Because level 70s will pay 200 gold for a level 19 offhand dagger for their rogue. It's becoming a major problem. But at the same time, the satisfaction I get from buying out an auction, then opening trade with the person I beat and showing them I bought it, then disenchanting it and showing them the shard cannot be matched by many things.

Well, today i logged onto WoW, and was hopping around Orgrimmar when it hit me. Trade chat. My eyes started bleeding. 2 words. Dude-speak. My only question about it is "Oh my gentle Jesus why?". People typing using numbers for letters and words, are, in my opinion, suffering from some social retardation issues. When i get a message saying "200 f00d plzkthxbi" when playing my mage, i am not upset with people bugging me for food, but the fact that they spelled it f00d. It's getting out of hand. Honestly, if you talk like that, you should be playing counterstrike. The idea used to be to make typing quicker and easier, but the sad part is, people spend more time spelling "I g0t sum sup4 l33t g3ar, ch3ck 1t!" than saying "check out the epix!". No longer shorthand, just punishment for us all who can't make heads or tails of it. another example. Sitting in Zul'Farrak after killing Antu'Sul, and someone spouts off "I g0t d1b5 0n d4 m4c3". ... ................. What in god's green earth was that? i asked, and the reply i got was "w4t u m33n?". I replied 77434529342343344 and left party. That annoys me. The sad part is, I have not exaggerated any of my examples. I ask all those of you reading this to post in. Why the hell do people type like that?

Does Blizzard like Horde better?

Okay, now before the flame posts, whining, crying, and freaking out begin, read this entry. This is not a "Horde is better than Alliance!" post, I've done those already. This is a "Does Blizzard like Horde better?" post. Now, I play Horde, so i will probably have my opinions a little jaded about the alliance side, so when i inevitably screw up, please Politely and Calmly point out my error and fix it for me. I personally think that blizzard likes the horde better than the alliance. They don't favor one side over the other for things that are important, but I think they do a bit more for the horde when it comes to filling in the gaps. Looking back at Warcraft 1, the horde units looked a lot better (even though they were all just dots, you could tell what was an orc, whereas the alliance units just looked like blobs of pixels) than the alliance units. Warcraft 2, same deal, horde also had a few extras and bonuses if you cared enough to look for them. In Warcraft 3, the alliance quests were boring and pointless, treading over ground we already covered. The Horde quests were by far more interesting, and introduced more characters and parts of the world and history. Also, at the end of the game, there was a video for the song "Power of the Horde". Not "Power of the Alliance" or "Alliance is the best". They just kinda got left out. In World of Warcraft, there are many NPCs in Orgrimmar, Thunderbluff, Undercity, and Silvermoon are there for no reason other than to add little bit of realism and color to the world. Alliance cities have these too, but not nearly as many as horde. The Horde also has a lot more embellishment on quests and people. There are dozens of families and clans you can find all over the place that have quests linking them, but not a lot of that for the alliance.
