    Lets check the readme that came with the install shall we.

    "WowReader - reads wow files and uploads data"

    That explains it all.

    Anyway, mustve been lag or something because it shows my items etc now.

    So what was your failure to understand it the first time?

    Ah, right. Idiocy.

    Your argument was that I couldnt get it to work and that the read me explained it all.

    Well, sometimes they have to explain the function of the program in depth for the slow.

    I was also referring to the instructions on the site itself. You know, the one where you have to click the link to download the program:

    If you had a profile and it didn't show your character then, then perhaps the uploading system was busy. It doesn't do much good to try it once and then gripe.

    Im not gonna quote and shit too much cause that takes more time than I want to waste on you, but you said

    "Let me guess...you didn't have enough time to bother reading the instructions included with it? "

    that readme was what was included and it didnt have installation notes, and since I didnt think alkhazam would be too busy I assumed i had done something wrong and posted about it here as an explenation to why I hadnt showed my character, wich you doubted so much.

    And the only argument was that i didnt know how to get my char uploaded in the manner Odin's was and not how to install in the first place. Murdoch solved it for me and I uploaded. End of story.

    And we've wasted more than enough time on your and your idiotic trolling/flaming of Order members.

    The next time you decide to give attitude in that way again, it will be the end of your visit.

    Bullshit. If you did as you claimed, i.e. "I looked for 10 min couldnt find it and that was it." then yes, you truly are deserving of that ridicule, regardless if you had lied or were just an idiot. Your attitude on top of that doesn't help at all. If you're going to make this an Order vs. You thing again, there's one easy solution we've been through before as apparently you didn't learn the last time.

    So...anyways, I'm starting to get very annoying at the whole Honor System "lets go kill everyone when they're just trying to quest thing".

    I suck ass at pvp combat, and don't want to do it in any case. I just want to level up and make myself a gnomish deathray eventually. But pigfuckers from all over seem to be out to scalp me. Fuck them, and pretty soon fuck this game, I'll go waste my time on strategy games like I should be doing. :evil:

    Grrr... I have DSL, bitch. Slow-ass DSL, but DSL nonetheless.

    The reason why I'm not playing WoW like all the other cool kids is because in Croatia the game sold out through preorders and now there isn't a single copy left within 5,000 miles of me. Even those who preorder aren't guaranteed to get their copy, as I experienced first-hand. I blame Blizzard and their incompetence; send more copies to Europe, dipshits!

    WoW is like a bleeding virus. Everyone and his (or her) mother is hooked on it.
    I'm on a Computer Science study and the amount of people here spending almost every minute of their spare time on WoW is incredibly, annoyingly high. You have whole groups of people gathering around on breaks, after classes, or during boring (or interesting) classes to play a wee bit more WoW. Evercrack has ceased to be, World of Warcraft has entered.

    That's also one of the few reasons I am not going to be playing this game, I like my social life the way it is, but it does require some investment.
    And I also severely dislike paying money to get a game, and then paying extra to keep on playing it.

    Yes it is very addictive and time consuming. When playing in an instance 2h fly bye like 2 min. Im gonna take a break from it myself.

    I must say I agree with Sander on this. As the prospect of paying for a game, then having to continue paying to play it just does not set well with me. So for that reason I won't ever play a MMORPG. As it seems to me that whoever does is getting hosed by the moneygrubbing game companies by forcing you to pay to be able to use something you already own.

    Imagine the shit that would hit the fan if other industries started doing that, "Sorry Mr. So&So but you have to pay a fee to use your car, new rules and all that." :roll:

    I don't know if it'd be quite the same. You're paying to use their servers which cater to thousands of people. Maybe it'd be the same as having to pay to cross a bridge or to drive on a main road (which in some cases you do). However, I don't know if it'd be quite the same as paying to use your car as they are giving you a constant service... You pay for an internet connection monthly don't you?

    The difference is I am renting time from the provider, I have not purchased anything from them. With a MMORPG you have purchased an item, not rented, from them. Then you STILL have to pay to use it. Then what happens when they close down their servers when the amount of money they deem mandatory to keep the server up is no longer coming in?

    You are hosed, as you still have the purchased item, but can no longer use it because 'their' server is no longer running it, having moved on to some other moneymaking scheme. So if you wish to use the item you purchased, forget it, as it now has no place to be run and you end up with a 50 dollar pice of shit you can no longer use. :roll: That is the problem with MMORPGs.

    Aye don't get me wrong, I've yet to play an MMORPG. I'm curious though, would these games be feasible to play small scale? Like I wonder if they would ever let you set up your own world alongside the massively multiplayer one that can hold say 64 people or something. Almost like the instanced dungeons but for the entire game? With those, you wouldn't pay the monthly fee as you wouldn't be using their servers but rather your own LAN and you could still get some form of the game if they ever closed down.
