So I reactivated my account to get a glimpse of the Battlegrounds.

I ran to the Alterac Valley ports and got in Queue. 1 hr and 22 Mins wait it says!! 'Wow, That sucks!!' I thought. it's not at 4 hrs and 6 Mins in queue and still waiting!!

What the hell is estimated wait time for!! Except to give false hopes.

I dub Blizzard "The Bringer of False Hope(s)".

You know Guy, I would play Guild Wars, if it didn't suck.

Even though this isn't the area to discuss Guild Wars, I have to say I don't agree with it sucking.  While it isn't World of Warcraft, it is pretty much as immersive as WoW with a more balanced gameplay.  I think it looks better, though the lack of weapon and armor looks are a bit irritating, than WoW.  But ultimately, it's got about as many bugs as WoW, which is to say a small amount and they are constantly updating to keep it that way, instead of "monthly" updates that occur every other month.  Not to mention these patches don't break the game for a 1-2 day period after coming out.  Add to that there are no queues nor monthly fee... I would say it's a winner.

Though I do miss Cat sometimes.

I'm not going to try to convince you to come back to Guild Wars, as that wouldn't make you or anyone happy to play a game just because someone else wanted you to.  I hope you will enjoy WoW more now than you did when you quit it before.  I'll miss having all the Brigadeer who originally were playing and no longer are, your brother among them... especially during his move.

Bottom line, Guild Wars does not suck.  EQ2 sucked.  Beatdown sucked.  I would not put a game in that category lightly.

On another note, I think the phrase that Mongo and Glistam are playing around with should actually be:

I dub thee "Bringer of False Hope(s)" "Bringer of False Hope(s)".

But I may be missing the joke if there was one in there.

I actually typed B l i z z a r d (no spaces) and he has it setup for changing that word to what I dubbed them.   Very Happy
