    /2 Oh ur a n00b, my bad. "PvE" stands 4 Player vs Environment. Stan, Cartman, Kile and Kenny were obvuiously playing on a PvP server, or "Player vs Player" relm.

    /2 All they had 2 do was transfer their toons 2 a PvE server, that way no1 could just walk up n gank'em 4 nothin.

    In the show, the "badass" got so super powerful that he could kill whoever he wanted to. Watch the whole episode sometime, it's hilarious.

    Haha, not too worried about it actually. I haven't ever even seen the game in person. No time for video games these days.

    Re: World of Warcraft release revives concern over games addiction

    I hate feeling like a n00b.

    Yesterday I was having a problem logging into some of my toons. Typical issue of malfunctioning add-ons trying to work for a logged-out toon. A UI error.

    So I delete my add-ons and clean my comp. Still can't log in.

    I run the repair utility; now I can access the log-n page, but not log into my toons.

    I create a new toon and open a ticket explaining the problem. An hour later (which is actually a good response time, especially for a holiday) Blizz, in it's infinite wisdom, moves the never-played lvl1 toon to Moonglade to resolve the UI error, as if that toon ever had any problem.

    I delete the redundant Interface and WTF files created by the repair utility. I could then log onto one of my alts. I open a new ticket explaining the problem, and ask that they address all of my characters, not just the one that opened the ticket.

    I went to bed.

    This morning I got up and found an e-mail from Blizz support, telling me that the problem was a client-side UI error (duh).

    The solution: Reinstall.

    Great, despite not having the WoW or WoW:BC DVDs, I know where I can download the game client. So I start the download...and the WoW installer crashes. "wtf?". I start it again. It crashes. I shut down all non-essential programs, drop the firewall, and start again. It crashes.

    I visit the WoW forums and post the problem. I get a link to an alternate installer....which took 4 hours to get to 2%.....

    So I just start reading the forums...hopefully someone will have a suggestion...

    Then I learn what a n00b I am.

    The WotLK DVD will install the entire game client, not just the expansion.

    So I pop in the DVD....which I nearly tossed out a couple weeks ago thinking "I can always download the game client if I need it again"....it's at 76% after 5 minutes....hopefully I can get this to work tonight.

    WoW sucks.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Re: World of Warcraft release revives concern over games addiction

    I go back in forth on about WoW. On the one hand, I'm sure I'd spend all my time playing it. On the other, right now I spend all my free time hanging out at bars. So what's worse?

    I'd save money and brain cells with WoW, but I wouldn't meet anybody.

    I dunno.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    wow pve =group gambling
    wow pvp = mutiplayer gaming.
    Im a retired veteran of the old GM syste, and BC arena. Gladiator, justticar, and several times rank 11. And I firmly believe only like 2% of the time u spend playing is worth it on a reward (fun) for investment (time emotion thought energy).
    TO me, its a pretty horrible return.
