Flawed Logic

I was boosting my brother (Aim, AKA the other guy who sometimes writes a post here) in Hellfire Ramparts and Blood Furnace when I saw that the Horde were capturing the fortifications. I went to investigate and killed a Level 60-something at the Overlook; I failed to spot the Level 110 Warlock, Khejas-Magtheridon, who was there as well.

As soon as Khejas spotted me, they came in to attack — by which I mean they popped every cooldown they had and nuked the hell out of me. I tried to retreat, but unfortunately gravity had other ideas:

As you can see, it was the fall which killed me, so Khejas wouldn’t have gotten as much honour as they would have had they killed me themselves.

Aim went to get his Priest and together we attacked Khejas. We killed them at Broken Hill and engaged them nearby when they ressed. Aim soon died in the second fight, but I managed to kill them, thanks to making use of Rage of the Sleeper, Skull Bash (to interrupt Khejas’ Drain Life), Frenzied Regeneration, Barksin and Survival Instincts.

For those of you keeping score, it’s 2-1 me.

Khejas made use of their Soulstone, and so we killed them again; Aim managed to land a couple of good crits, meaning they went down hard. The final score was 3-1 to Aim and I, a good result as far as I cared.

But it wasn’t over yet; I was on my Horde Priest later on, with the intention of doing Heroic Ramparts and Blood Furnace for Netherweave Cloth, when I saw Khejas capturing the Stadium. I couldn’t help but gloat about the fact I’d beaten them  three times, compared to how quickly they’d beaten me just the once. I then decided that Ramps and BF could wait and logged out for a while.

When I logged back into my Druid, I found this waiting for me in my mailbox:

Er, okay? You only owned me once, you moron; I killed you three times. And what’s this shit about ‘try not to die on a 3v1?’ The way I saw it, it was always a 2v1; Aim and I against your pathetic little self.

I decide to reply to this little tirade…

When I say ‘grow a spine,’ I was referring to the fact that Khejas had waited until I was offline before sending this crap to me. Also, look at the name they chose for their Level 1 Alliance character; it’s precious.

Unfortunately, I got this when I tried to send my reply. Go figure.

I then decided that, if I couldn’t mail the twat, I’d go to their realm and drop my logic bomb on them personally. I loathe doing this, as it means stooping to Khejas’ level, but I felt that an exception had to be made in this case.

I went to Maghteridon and made a character called ‘Khejasalty’ – because I can be petty as well – and then ran a /who to see if Kheja was online. They were in Tomb of Sargeras, so I put together the following message, sent by way of five macros.

Hello, Navitas-Shadowsong here. I can see you’re raiding, so I’ve prepared some macros to deliver some hard truths your way. First of all, how the hell can you call ME ‘salty’ when I killed you THREE TIMES, hmm? First time we fought, you popped all your CDs and I – foolishly – decided to retreat. But here’s a fun fact: it was FALLING that killed me, NOT YOU. So techically it’s 3-0 me. Go figure. The second time we fought, you managed to kill my brother before I beat seven shades of shit out of you and sent you face-first into the dirt. During our third fight, I beat your ass some more before my bro managed to land some lucky crits. So what was that shit about me needing to ‘grow some skill,’ when YOU can’t even grow a backbone to confront me while I was online? I don’t particularly enjoy having to stoop to your level by making a char on your realm to bombard you with whispers, you know. But if that’s what it takes for me to get my point across, so be it. I’m done now; if you choose to purse this matter further by making a new Shadowsong char, it’ll only mark YOU as the salty one, NOT ME.

I then logged out before they had a chance to respond; again, being petty.

Logging back onto my Druid, I hung around Goldshire for a while… and then I saw something pop up in my chat frame:

As well as proving my point about them being the salty one, it looks like Kheja has once again made a Level 1 character on Shadowsong; unfortunately, my BadBoy anti-spam is set up to block all whispers from Level 1 characters, meaning that Khejas’ torrent of… whatever the hell they said… was blocked. BadBoy must have whispered them back explaining the block, hence why the message about my being ignored appeared. I also have my UI set up to put whispers into a new tab, which is how I knew Kheja had tried.

I go back to Magtheridon and try to find them again, but they were either offline or on an alt that I obviously wouldn’t know the name of. So, I asked if someone in their guild could explain to Khejas why their whisper wasn’t received.

That was yesterday (July 24th); when I got back from work today, I found yet another in-game mail waiting for me.

What a pity then, that the feeling isn’t mutal.

I tried to reply (again)…

… and once again I got the ‘Cannot find mail recipient’ message.

I’d had enough of this, so I went back to Magtheridon and made a new character called ‘Threeoneme’ – because I wanted to rub it in some more – and tried this:

I waited a few minutes for them to reply, but got nothing.

Oh, you’re AFK? Well, that’s certainly convenient. </sarcasm>

I probably won’t report them for harassment, even though it kinda is:

  • Refusing to end the pointless argument.
  • Cannot accept the fact that they lost. Hard.
  • Making new characters to send me stupid messages.

Anyway, the fact remains that I don’t consider myself to be in the wrong here. Sure, I could have just ignored the stupid prat, but I wanted to respond to the… er… ‘points’ that Khejas made in their original mail to me. I was hoping that would be the end of it; it’s not my fault that they decided to continue with the charade.

In fact, I am somewhat convinced that – even as I type this – my Druid has yet another message waiting for her in the mailbox.

… fuck it, I’m going to go and check.

RESULT: There wasn’t. Thank fuck for that; I guess the stupid prick finally got the message.

Well, That Escalated Quickly… Again

I was on my Priest, Nogametime, whom I have geared for Level 20 twinking, when I challenged a Warlock named Ryan (yes, that was his name) to a duel.

I won the duel quite easily, but Ryan didn’t seem to like that:

He ran off after calling me a ‘cheating bastard,’ hence why I yelled ‘QQ more.’ Shortly thereafter, however, I notice that he tried to whisper me. Since I’m using the BadBoy addon to block all incoming whispers, I didn’t see it. So, I asked about it.

Can you tell that I’m being sarcastic?

Seriously, look through these screenshots and you will see that I haven’t said or done anything that remotely resembles being ‘mad.’ However, Ryan is failing miserably to spot his own hypocrisy.

Poor little Ryan needs to take a chill pill… or ten.

Yep. He mad. Honestly, kid, if you were ‘better than me,’ you would have grown a fucking spine and kept up the argument. But no, you just had to lose said spine and then resort to ignoring me like the little bitch you are.

Truth be told, I’m no better; I am writing this blog after all.

Still kicked your arse, though. 😉

Warning: This Post Contains 100% Salt

While doing the new content on the Broken Shore, introduced in the latest patch, I came across an elite rare. Standing nearby was a Mage named Flippineck (hereafter shortened to ‘Flip’), who also seemed interested in what this rare had to offer.

I was in Bear Form at the time, which prompted Flip to whisper me.

After I didn’t respond to his calls of ‘go’ and ‘go m8,’ he decided to attack the rare himself; he was promptly face down in the dirt, which started the rest of what you see above. Flip was not happy that I had refused to attack the rare… not that I really gave a fuck at that particular moment, of course.

To be quite honest, I don’t give a shit about you ‘killing loads on your main.’ When it comes to fighting really tough enemies, I prefer to use something called ‘common sense,’ which involves waiting for more people to arrive. I’d offer to lend you some of my common sense, but I’ve barely got enough as it is.

Of course you can kill them on a fucking Hunter, you twat, because you’ve got a fucking pet to do all the tanking and DPS for you. As a Guardian Druid, I do not have that luxury – unless I spec it, though Treants suck – and then there’s the fact I keep forgetting to use Barkskin and Ironfur. Oh, and I fucking hate what they’ve done to Frenzied Regeneration.

You’ve probably noticed that I’m swearing a lot in this update. Well, there’s a reason for that. You see, after putting Flip on ignore, I thought that was the end of it. I did my Broken Shore World Quests and then returned to Dalaran, where I noticed the ‘new mail’ icon had made an appearance.

It was Flip, contacting me on another character to continue our already fucking pointless debate argument.

And if you want to insult the way I play the game, then might I suggest that you practice what you’re fucking preaching, you bastarding hypocrite?

I knew it was Flip, but I wanted to have some fun… for whatever demented reason was going through my head at the time. Oh, and I know my Druid is piss poor; I’ve invested most of her gold in some stuff I hope to turn a decent profit on.

Another whiny little baby complaining about swearing. Why don’t these cunts realise that there’s a fucking Mature Language Filter they can use? Or is Flip just jealous that I’m allowed to swear?

Once again, I tried to explain my logic…

And once again, it goes right over the fucking top of Flip’s head.

Oh, and I was quick to point out that he’s not allowed to name names when posting on the forum; since I am posting on my own blog, that rule doesn’t apply to me. So fucking suck it.

One last message, and that was it. Thankfully, I’ve not heard from the bastard ever since.

One thing did strike me as ironic, though, and that was the name of the guild these characters were in:

‘Bridgeburners.’ How fucking ironic… because you’ve definitely burned all of your bridges with me.

Cunt.

Named And Shamed

This post may prove to be a bit controversial, for reasons that will soon become apparent, but I feel that I need to publish it. After all, someone adding me on Battle.net just to flame me is indeed a first.

Allow me to explain.

As you all know, there is an in-game event going on wherein Azeroth is being invaded by the forces of the Burning Legion (and is, quite frankly, the best in-game event Blizzard has ever created).

I was responding to an invasion in Westfall on my Druid, when I saw a flagged Level 100 Horde player under attack from demons. So, I did what came naturally… and killed them.

The next thing I know, I get a Battle.net friend request. I ignore it and carry on killing demons, only for the person to send it again. This time, I decide to humour them and accept — only for this to happen:

FarahAli01

It was the Horde player I killed, adding me just to spout that. Makes a change from logging out and creating an Alliance character, I guess.

To say that I was not impressed with this would be an understatement. I defeated this player in PvP combat, for which there are no rules, and they feel the need to do this. I tried reporting them for it; they had removed me as a friend, so I kept getting a Lua error.

Now we get to the controversial (I think) part… wherein I reveal this prick’s Battle.net ID to show them that they can’t pull this sort of stunt and expect me to just forget about it.

So, yeah… FUCK YOU, FarahAli#2586!

I’m done here. Peace out.
