2011: The Year of Getting Stuff Done

So yeah, new year, new post.

This year, 2011, is all about getting stuff done. To that end, I have The List (TM). The List contains everything that I want to get done during 2011. It includes things to do with Warhammer 40,000, World of Warcraft, Gaming in general, and things I want to do in my life.

So, whats on this list, I hear you ask, across the ether and the net? Good question. Sample after the break. Continue reading 2011: The Year of Getting Stuff Done

Blizzard enforce hard cap on guild membership.

Apparently, Blizzard don’t want their Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game to be too massive and are limiting guilds to a hard cap on members.

This affects a number of super-massive guilds, like Alea Iacta Est on US-Earthen Ring Horde, Taint on US-Proudmoore Horde, Goonsquad and my own PC Gamer Guild on EU-Steamwheedle Cartel Horde.

More surprisingly, is the fact that many members of most of these guilds raised their concerns on the official Blizzard forums, and immediately, the normal denizens of the forums shot down their concerns as “without merit”.

The one thing to take away from that is the members of the “Super-Massive Guilds”, who according to Blizzard take up “less than 0.01%” of guilds feel that the guild, to them is a form of extended family and many wouldn’t continue playing if not for the guild that welcomed them. It seems that to the malcontents who cry everytime that Blizzard change their class a little think that it’s OK to alienate a community that enjoys its game as a community. And because this community is a community of malcontents who are very very vocal.

So the malcontents will win this one. And that is sad.

In Memory…

This post is in memory of my Father, Ron Sharpe.

He passed away, peacefully, at 5 AM on Saturday, August 21st, 2010 after a long battle with Asbestosis, emphysema brought on by that and Lung Cancer. He was surrounded by his family, who he loved, and he went with a smile on his face.

He died one month short of his 65th birthday.

Rest in Peace Dad, I love you.
