Get your kicking boots on! [Apr. 16th, 2016|03:17 pm]

Dear fellow timewalkers,

Sometimes, it's okay to kick people, I promise.

You don't have to settle in for an absolutely miserable 20+ minutes just because you want to save your precious vote for a rainy day. (Hint: it's bucketing cats, dogs, little old ladies, and harrows. Just to mix my hyperboles here.)

I swear I couldn"t even make this up...Collapse )

Dear shipyard,

Please, for the love of all things aquatic, stop trying to give me more Left Sharks.  I am already awash in a sea of sharks.  I am drowning in their sharkiness.  It is so damp from humidity in here I fear that I may soon grow my own gills and fins.  I have so many sharks that at this point I could film my own Sharknado sequel and shun the usage of CGI.

Thanks so much, (as I pull another Left Shark that has been snuck into my garrison out from under the drafting table),

Here there be dragons! [Feb. 29th, 2016|11:17 am]

Dear World of Warcraft,

I've not been playing you much the last couple weeks, aside from my 3x weekly heroic progression, mostly just because I have had other fun things to do.  In fact, I didn't even realize that Timewalking was going on until just yesterday!  So imagine my shock when I logged on earlier, queued up for my first Timewalking... and had the Reins of the Infinite Timereaver drop for me off the very first boss!

Thanks for the sweet new ride!

I have just come back to WoW from a nearly 8 month hiatus.

My friend and I were rolling new toons to level together, and I predictibly make what is probably my 30th Worgen, while she makes a Draenei. I meander on my way up to the prison rooftop to have my 2 mins chill time with Mr. Crowley. With no other players in sight, I nuke down the first wave of mobs and pause to type something to my friend as another wave of mobs arrive.

During that brief pause, You showed up. After killing the mobs, you then proceed to stand there and chew me out for not helping, immediately concluding that I'm too lazy to be bothered with anything, and what a joy I'll be during the Battle for Gilneas. You then continue on a tirade about how you miss "the old days" when "people liked to have fun in this game" while I'm standing there speechless.

We're both in full heirlooms, these mobs hit with all the force of a spring breeze, and mobs killed does nothing to move the timer along faster. Many players don't bother fighting the mobs here, and I don't care, because it doesn't effect me in any way. That being said, your feeling justified in judging and cursing me out over this 5 second observation is just mind boggling. I very much enjoy having fun in this game, but it's difficult to do so sometimes with assholes like you running around. Obviously the irony of your own actions escaped you entirely.

Seriously, who pissed in your Cheerios this morning?

PS - GG on ignoring me in case I had the nerve to say something in response to your righteously indignant ass. Make sure to report me too. I'm such a horrible person.

Free carries? Bah-humbug! [Jan. 2nd, 2016|08:09 pm]

Dear holiday players,

Real life can be tough and hectic, I get it. So hopping on WoW to get your game on over the hols? Awesome.


The rest of us are not obligated to run on our mythic geared mains all the time so that you can enjoy your off-off-off-spec instant tank/healer queue without having to know or do jack shit.

Us "losers and nerds" do not owe you a free boost through everything that happened over the year. You already got some nice cookies and woollen socks from the Winter Veil presents, enjoy those.

Cata was hard, remember? [Nov. 21st, 2015|02:00 pm]

Dear Timewalkers,

Cata heroics were hard, and they're slightly overtuned for roflstompy timewalky content. Tactics must be obeyed or one-shots occur.

Kicking my healer because in End Time you just pulled Jaina *and* two packs of adds and I couldn't keep us up? You need Thrall, or probably Jesus, to carry you in the manner you're clearly accustomed to...

I can't even be mad, I'm too busy laughing.

Dear Arthas:

After almost a year of farming you (more if you count running multiple characters some weeks), I have your horse.

And it loves me more than it ever could for you.

No love,

Dear everyone sporting a raging hate-boner for Blizzard:


(I don't even know if this is a legit post, I'm just giddy as hell and my household is tired of hearing me shriek BLIZZCON! every few hours.)

Dear tank and 2 dps guild group that my friend and I zoned into a random with:

I think you might need some ice for that burn I just gave you, which is especially awesome as as a resto druid I really shouldn't be burning things so well.  (At most, it's usually ME in tree form getting a little on the singed side.)

You see, you were the unfortunate pack of entitlement guildies that everyone has the misfortune to find themselves partnered with from time to time, so when I asked politely if you could all stop incessently /rolling and filling the window with numbers spam, your reponses were "We're having fun.  Chill" and "If you don't like it, leave."  When I both responded that "Well, I'M certainly not having fun" and "No" to being told to leave, you, so very predictably, tried to kick me.  However, you didn't realize the other DPS was my friend (since he's playing Horde incognito right now and doesn't even have a guild), so when he failed to vote yes to kick ME, you kicked HIM instead.  I worked out with him what happened pretty fast, and so thus, I began the burn...

... I put up a vote kick for the most obnoxious of the three of you (a warlock named Aflicmyclit, who I also reported for innapropriate name), BUT I gave the reason as "Dick healer".

So of course your stupid, vindictive asses votekicked your own friend because you didn't read the name, and you couldn't votekick any more people!  You were stuck with me unless YOU left.

I didn't stick around for long of course, just long enough to inform you just how much of a degree of idiocy that you all possessed, and to /lol at both of you several times.  Surprisingly, you had nothing to say to me at all after that!

So yes, sweet, sweet revenge for my poor friend who didn't deserve to be kicked, and who laughed harder than I did when I told him what I'd done to restore his honor. :)
