I'm a software developer in OKC. I'm married to RavensRedd and have been since 2006. I'm the guy Janet Napolitano warned you about. I'm a racist and I don't care!

The Current State of the Community

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

For those who don’t know what the Internet Dickwad Theory is, here’s a link. It’s important that you understand that theory before you continue reading. Now that you’re versed in that theory, I’d like to talk about the current state of the community. I know this is a WoW blog but this isn’t a WoW [...]

Where I rank MoP… And why

Wednesday, January 16th, 2013

5.2 is coming Soon(tm) and so it’s seems as good a time as any to talk about Mists of Pandaria and where it ranks in the WoW library. Before I begin, I see an MMO as a collection of three things: 1) Story; 2) Dungeons/Questing; and 3) End-game. So, I’ll discuss each and how it [...]

5.2 Impressions

Monday, January 14th, 2013

With 5.2 on the PTR it’s only a matter of time before Tier 15 is released. I’m going through the patch notes as I’m typing this, so you’ll get my unedited impressions. Lucky you New Daily Hub OH GOODY! Honestly, I’m over the whole “dailies are evil” thing. What they did wrong in 5.0 wasn’t [...]

The latest “Sky is falling” event

Friday, January 11th, 2013

So, a level 80 DK solo’d H 25-man Baleroc in Firelands. A few days later and an 80 paladin solo’d Stone Guard, Feng, and later, Elegon. Of course this news was met with congratulations and a general sense of amazement about the skill of these players… Right? Not so much. Instead we got post after [...]

My guild history

Friday, January 11th, 2013

So, I’ve not found anything too terribly interesting on the forums lately, so I decided I would give you a little more back story on me. I start playing in October 2010, about 6 weeks before Cata was released. A friend told me to start a toon on the Quel’Dorei server and he’d hook me [...]

Is it time to end the LFR?

Monday, December 17th, 2012

When the LFR was first introduced in the PTR notes for 4.3 I have to admit, I was very skeptical. I mean, the LFD is generally considered one of the most convenient, but worst, additions to the game. Allow me to take you back in time. Before the LFD was introduced in patch 3.3 players [...]

Introduction

Tuesday, December 11th, 2012

So, I guess this where I should start, with an introduction. My name is Darth. Just Darth. I have 11 characters, 9 of which are “Darth____”, my guild knows me as Darth, I often call myself Darth (which has a lot to do with hating my given name). I started playing video games in the [...]
