The More Things Change …

Any of you lady gamers looking for a VERY eligible man …

Hawt Gamer

… there’s your guy, right there.

Addendum: Heh, for bonus funny points … the Fire guy had asked what’s boring about Warcraft, as the other guy with the 3 (count ’em, 3!!!) level 60s had said he just quit WoW because it was boring.

The Second Day was so much Better

So Day Two arrived in Guild Wars (Day One for you non-preordering types, ha!), and we continue our assault on max level in the least amount of time possible. This is the only way to actually win an online game … reduce the nuisance of it all to the minimum time.

Thank whatever god is this game’s diety for instant city travel. If I had to run all over the countryside backtracking as some of these quests expect me to do, I’d be plenty pissed. The instant travel is the bomb –> best … feature … ever. Guild Wars, no matter how brief my stay in this virtual world, will always have a special place in my heart for instant travel.

My /ignore list is already thankful, and refreshingly light so far with only two additions! I have to insta-travel back to town to sell off my crap loot, and there’s a dogpile of characters dancing by the main gate (WHY?? WHY??). Naturally, they’re filling the public channel with their unsolicited opinions about fucking everything, so much so that I can’t even keep up with tells from guildmates … zap! into an instance away from the madding crowd.

There. Two things that I like. I even said so in TeamSpeak and everyone else agreed … insta-travel and instances to escape the general population are two very good things.

The End.
