Lilshaw? More Like Lilsore!

BOOM, UPDATE OUTTA NOWHERE!

I was standing around on my Priest when all of a sudden, a Rogue named Lilshaw uses the /chicken emote on me. I was curious as to why this was the case, so I asked them why… only to immediately regret it.

Wow, someone got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning!

Since when did BadBoy_Levels block duels? I wasn’t even aware of that being a feature.

Five times? Pfft, yeah right, pal; I’ll tell you why that’s bullshit in a bit.

I’d put the stupid prick on ignore by this point, hence why there are no more replies. Unless, of course, they were trying desperately to look up better insults than ‘faggot.’

I’d seen Lilshaw dueling other people in Goldshire, and then acting high and mighty when they won. So, I added them to my blacklist, which blocked the two – not five – requests they sent.

But whatever, I still got the last laugh.

I fucking told you you’d end up on here, you moron; perhaps this will teach you not to start shit with random people for no reason, hmm?

Rage With A Side Of Salt

I was on Nogametime – again – when this popped up.

All right, someone wants a duel. Better find them first; I like to inspect people before I duel them, so I know what I’m letting myself in for.

Oh, look, another one of these people. I guess I’d better decline this and use these screenshots to update the Hall of Shame for the first time in–

Hmm, it would seem as though this person can’t handle rejection very well.

Yeah, they mad.

(I normally try to avoid saying ‘umad,’ but I felt I could make an exception here.)

Uhh, you can’t prove that, pal… and I’m pretty sure you’re raging at me for no reason right now, so… yeah, fuck you.

(‘KYS,’ in case you didn’t know, is short for ‘Kill yourself.’)

Rowzy decides to choose the latter offer, whereas this other Shaman decides to pop up and… oh, hell, that realm name is looking too familiar.

Running away from the facts again, Mulder? Seems to be the only thing you’re remotely good at.

Anyway, this was a rather odd thing to happen. Oh well, fuck ’em.

(I should point out that this incident happened on the 13th of January, while the incident mentioned in my previous blog happened on the 7th.)

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.

*mic drop*

It Was An Accident!

Thanks to the power of missions, I recently came into possession of a Void-Shrouded Satchel on my Druid. Since I already have Touch of the Void, I decided to sell it.

Ënigma001

Yeah, okay. Three hundred gold seems like a fair price. I’d better invite him to a group, so that he can come to my Garrison and trade with me.

Ënigma002

Oh, shit, I clicked the wrong option in the list. But, alas, by the time I rectified this error, it was far too late.

Ënigma003

Fuck.

Now, if this guy had just waited for a moment, I could have explained the situation. But OH NO, he had to throw a hissy fit and turn into a complete and total twat.

Patience is a virtue, fuckface, I suggest you get some.

Economics 101

The Auction House, as you are no doubt aware, is a source of income for millions of players. Every day, thousands of items are bought and sold — among them being the humble Netherweave Bag. This one item is responsible for most of the gold I have earned since I founded my bank guild, as bags are the one thing always in demand. It may only have 16 slots, but they are cheap and readily available; an ideal bag for starting your adventures, at least until you can make your own or buy better ones. Most of my characters are in possession of at least four of these inane objects.

How ironic, then, that the humble Netherweave Bag (which, from this point on, I will shorten to NWB) would also be responsible for causing a recent war in the Trade Chat.

It all started like this: I had just made some NWBs and put them on the Auction House. I have a small addon which sends one of six random messages to the Trade Chat, so I used it. That’s when the shit hit the fan, as I attracted the attention of Tarrendar.

Now, Tarrendar is someone whom I never thought I’d be writing about. I once helped him get an achievement on his guild, for which he paid me 5,000 gold. The funny thing is, though… I helped him on Luxxoria.

Tarrendar001

ANOTHER FUN FACT: At the time of writing this post, I had enough Bolts of Netherweave Cloth to make another two hundred and fifty-seven NWBs.

But I digress: Tarrendar is clearly worried that I am muscling in on his own – seemingly lucrative – NWB trade — although I have to say that putting a hundred of them on the AH is a bit OTT. Also, and feel free to call me vain or whatever, I like to think that I control the NWB market on this server.

Tarrendar002

Who the hell does this guy think he is, telling me what to do? I do not need his permission, nor anyone elses, to use the Auction House. As you can see, I tell him this…

Tarrendar003

… and he promptly has a tantrum. I actually put a few on at 1g each myself, just to annoy him. He bought some of them, but I was able to cancel the majority before he could get them.

Tarrendar004

Let me explain something to you, Tarrendar. I cannot make money on the Auction House if I sell things at the same price as you. I have to make what I am selling seem more attractive to potential buyers — so I do this thing called ‘undercutting,’ which is when I put my items on at a lower price than yours. In this case, I put my own NWBs on at seven gold each; whereas you had them on for ten gold each.

Do you understand now?

Tarrendar005

He has now gone from being angry to downright immature — so I put him on ignore and grabbed these screenshots.

It is rather unfortunate that I have to type this because, as I said, I thought Tarrendar was a thouroughly decent person. But this incident has shown me that even the nicest of people have a dark side.

Anyway, this concludes our lesson on Economics 101.

Class Dismissed.
