My posse’s in Mulgore

DMZ · February 26, 2005 at 2:25 am · Filed Under Off-topic ranting 

Seriously, you should only read this post if you’ve been playing video games in the off-season, otherwise this is going to make no sense and only annoy you, which is why I’ve tried to make this lead-in as short as possible while being entirely clear about its content.

Awwwwwwwwww yeah.

DMZ on a kodo

I’m going to go terrorize Alliance newbies when I get back in town.

Newbie: “La la la, I’m a new Alliance player because I’m dumb and everyone else is, or because I’m a guy who likes looking at his night elf character a little too closely all the time, here I am, picking flowers and prancing through the newbie… why is the ground sha– OH MY GOD WHAT IS — RUN! RUN!”
Me: “Wahahahahaha!”
Me, as heard by them: “Moooooo.”
Newbie, 5m later, in real life: “I’d like to return this game I just bought…”

    wow… and i thought i needed to get to sleep…

    at least i drank for free and made about 10 dollars on top playing 3 dollar a game pool.

    worst part, knowing full well i’m teaching saturday school tomorrow in about 5.5 hours.

    i was thinking of assigning them an essay. maybe no less than 1000 words tell me exactly who they think they are.

    mess with the bull, you’ll get the horns, young man.

    i NEED barry manilow’s wardrobe about now.

    enjoy your game.

    My crew of dwarf hunters would turn you into chum and go fishing with the leftovers. Turn you into some mudfish and sell you for one copper. My undead priest would be of no help at all to you, he’s not 20 yet.

    But I’m on different servers, in any case.

    If you’re trying to sell me on WoW, you’re doing a pretty good job.

    I’d rather drive around San Andreas with my homies, doing drive-by shootings with the gangsta rap turned up to 11….

    No more MMORPGs for me. One bad experience is enough to sway me forever.

    We’ll see about that.

    How’s your server on stability? I’ve created three new alts today as the servers have been dropping right and left.

    At least when Horde talk smack in the game (through numbers and non-letter symbols), you could always shut ’em up. Doing it in a forum is kind of cruel to prideful geeks no?

    Anyway, have fun ganking newbies. I prefer to hunt the hunters. 🙂

    Gorgonnash is one of the worst, if not the worst, low-population servers for stability. Ugh.

    Also, I didn’t say I was going to gank newbies. I said I was going to terrorize them by riding around on my kodo. I don’t go in for ganking.

    The whole world of EverQuest/World of WarCraft-type games is fairly foreign to me, so I wouldn’t be able to do much with this thread. But if you have a thread for Civilization 4, if it ever comes out, I’m there.

    Hey, a Civ fan. I worked on the first Civilization. Good games. Civ2 was the best.

    Hey #5 — yes, San Andreas. I know that’s so last year, or something.


  14. Harry on February 27th, 2005 2:15 pm

    Nono, San Andreas is still the hotness.

    Here I was, all set to go on an Deadmines run last night, and Lightbringer was toast. All night. Pretty frustrating, but it’s been the first time in a while that there’s been much downtime, so I guess I’ll live with it.

    And if I saw something riding past me like that, I’d just go “coooool”, but I make sure not to play on PvP servers.

    Now all you need is a carrot on a stick and some mithril spurs 🙂

    Heh. The lead-in was great. I was like ‘Mulgore? That sounds REALLY familiar…’

    If you are interested in MMOGs, WoW is amazingly fun. I play Horde on the Earthen Ring server, which has somehow avoided most of the downtime and lag I hear about on all the other servers. Sometimes blind luck can carry the day!
