I see gucomics are as unfunny as ever.
Well, they cut him some slack and put a hat on his head to hide the big, empty shiny spot on top of his head at least.
How mature.
Hmm.. totally immature. You are right. I'll try to abstain from the personal jokes.

Mea culpa.

Did they borrow those girls from the Aion booth?

Also, note that the girl on the left is holding a pair of white shades. ACK!

Surprisingly LOTD has killed RvR.

I'm hoping you're kidding.  This shouldn't have surprised anyone at all.

They added Minotaur Relics!  Except ones that don't give a bonus, but rather allow you to access more PvE content!

Only thing left is to figure out how far down the rabbit hole this game will go now. You'd think someone over there would peak on ANY boards and figure it out by now. Of course it might be one of those things where they have gone this far, why not just torch the place and collect the insurance money. Would not surprise me in the least if WAR goes the way of TR within 2 years.

Next they'll add items you can level, but only while killing Greenskins on a full moon with your thumb in your ass.  It will be great!

I'm going with them ripping off Majestic soon.  You'll get faxes from greenskins with random clues to shit that never comes to fruition. 

That link is fucking ridiculous.  What ever happened to just playing a goddamn game?  It plays like a Matryoshka doll that has nothing at the center.

They have to be doing this on purpose.  They just have to.  Regardless, I know I am going to be dissapointed when they finally shut down the servers, it has been a blast watching them unerringly make the wrong move, in the wrongest possible way.

Holy fuck. That's awful.

It's like they expect the players to be World Champion DickPunchees. It's the new sport where you train and train and train for match day by taking punches in the junk. Then on match day the hardest, biggest, strongest, baddest motherfucker spends 90 minutes cock punching you until your balls bleed out of your anus. And you do this for 22 matches in the Hawaiian Punch Premier Cockpunch League. The person who successfully maneuvers through all 22 matches then faces off against the #2 cockpunched in the playoffs to determine who gets to join the regional Champions' Cockpunch league.

And the winner of that league? He wouldn't even fucking play this, because it's worse than getting cockpunched from orbit by the moon.

I hadn't read that article before, but it got to me so badly that I had to go have chicken vindaloo with a friend, which unfortunately didn't help.

How can they fuck up their own mechanisms so badly? Wasn't the fucking PURPOSE of public quests to offer some decent rewards for casual "drop-in" grouping? Isn't that why they're called public? What's the point if you need to have a holy trinity group to even use the rewards? Or are they called public because you're supposed to be publically humiliated as you're caught trying to do this degrading and soul-crushing grind?

Its probably easier to get a tax writeoff for shutting it down if it fails quickly, or something- amortizing the depreciation or some shit like that.  Thus, glyphs  awesome, for real

I don't mind the general idea of it...

... but 14 or so different PQs to get all the glyphs? So you can then go into 4 different areas, fight a boss and lose the glyphs so you can start again?

So lets recap (Please correct me where i'm wrong this is from forums/articles):

- It's an RVR zone
- Access to the Land of the dead is heald via realm control/gathering/rvr kills
- 30mins guaranteed access after winning then the gathering for control is reset
- Player population locks (*cough* new stability fixes)
- 14 PQ's
- Required glyphs from said PQ's to enter dungeons

Questions:
- Do the glyphs poof after logout/opposite realm control/timer?
- Is the population locks still in place after the zone is taken?

yeah I mean we could always enter DF and fight it out to lock out opponents for a temporary time.  But anyone could enter I believe. No one had to spend x hours re-running the same content to gather temporary keys.  How on earth do they think this works?
