Samhain's Zergwatch

Samhain's Zergwatch is a blog that started in 2006 on a different gaming community server and has since evolved into www.zergwatch.com, a place to gather my twisted thoughts on the whole mess. Explore the oozing underbelly of gaming with me.

A futile attempt to remain in the top 10 blogs

I've slacked off on the blog this past week and saw my blog go from #2 to #9.  The main reason of course is the "What have you done for me today?" effect.    While I enjoy writing blogs here at MMORPG, I also have a real job.  I also have a 2nd real job which is the actual Zergwatch Website.

Unfortunately, I have been writing my usual daily articles, but there just hasn't been anything fucked up happening in MMORPG's lately.   In fact.. There hasn't been a damn thing happening at all and I could barely write a sentence about how Maplestory fucked their users last week with the patch.. becaue its a game nobody gives a crap about.

I'm hoping as we move closer to AoC launch, there will be lots of material.  I suppose I could have condemned NCSoft for giving the green light on CoH advertising.  The truth is, I've been busy with the website as we near our April 15th Launch Date and most of the fucked up shit has been happening outside the MMORPG space and it wouldn't really be appropriate to post my non-mmorpg articles here on this site.  

MMORPG is my 2nd favorite website... Ok Maybe 3rd or 4th. But shit.. its up there ok.  Once the MMO industry gets some sort of pulse or signs of life to give me something to write about I'll be all over it like a Korean MMO on Grinding.

Here's some recent non-MMORPG articles I've written since my last blog entry here:

5 Questions you need to ask yourself before buying Wii Fit
In game advertising coming to Habbo Hotel
The Daily Douchebag: Harve L. Johnson kills 2 year old with game controller
Prison guard plays games and texts while inmates kill eachother
The Daily Douchebag: WoW player sues IGE <- I guess that was an MMO entry :(
4 Great Products for the Eldery Wii Player
Man dies mining gold from his Dell

I'm still looking for a new Korean MMORPG beta to tear into. Please give suggestions

Have you posted your views on RMT? That is usually a popular subject that I myself havnet hit yet.

What about blogging on what MMO you would erase to fix the timeline? :)

There's really all sorts of topics. I myself have slacked off cause my job went into crunch mode for a few weeks. I had to get some rest. I tend to blog late at night when I'm all worked up haha so it was a good idea for me to take a break

I found the WoW article kinda terrifying. 

Realistically...the only way the player can sue (and win....) is based entirely on the assumption that gold sellers forced him to play (and thus pay) the game longer to acquire the same gold as people who abused the rules.  Under that assumption, the gold selling company cost the user money by refusing to obey the EULA and, thus, caused him damages.

The issue with that is the standard it sets legally.  If the gold sellers can be tried for forcing the player to play longer....its not a much farther stretch to also hold the game COMPANY accountable for any changes to the game which, essentially, force the player to play and pay more in order to get back what he had.

Not saying its something to worry about now, but I always keep my mind open about such things.  Setting legal standards like that are a slipper slope thats just plain bad for the market.

Hey Zerg!

I wouldn't worry too much about the "Top Blog" thing here on MMORPG.com. I'm not sure how Jon set it up, but it's clearly not working very well.

If you look at "Popular" Blogs right now, I'm sitting at #4. The AoC Dev Blog is #1. However, at #3, we have a horribad blog that only has 4 poorly written blog posts. The only comments on these posts are people saying "that post sucked" and the like.

Now, how does this clown have a higher Popular Blog rating than me? My latest blog posts have more views than him by far. I also have 12+ articles in my blog.

So, as I said before, not sure how it's set up - but it's weird. ;)

I know what you mean about MMO news / posts. I write a lot of non-MMO stuff that I don't mirror here. Ah well, suck is life.

Anyway, best of luck, keep your head up.

I just started blogging on this site a few weeks ago and I sit at #2 although I figure thats due to the views on my pokemon mmo idea.  My other blogs have modest views.

It should probably be based on total views for all blogs ever posted.  But I wont complain about my sitting.  And thanks for not tearing me a new one Deadren for my sitting at #2.

I have been reading your guys blogs for a while and just figured what the heck.
