Posted in Miscellaneous, Rants on September 24, 2010 by C J Spear

Allow me to deviate from my usual WoW-based rants for a moment, dear readers, as I think a post every now and then about things not concerning WoW may actually be worth a read (shocker, I know). I want to write this post for several reasons, and while the main one may be I still have a category with no posts in it and I felt like I should do something about it, I’ve had a lot of other random things on my mind as of late and I normally find that writing them down simplifies them. By writing them here, you’ll have something to occupy yourself for 5 minutes while you’re bored at work/home/school/life etc.



I hate Gearscore, but I hate idiots more

Posted in Gaming on September 16, 2010 by C J Spear

Gearscore has now embedded itself in WoW’s online society. Pretty much every PuG you see in trade asks for it, and unless you have something impressive to show instead of it, you’re not getting into a lot of groups without that little number. Now, you may have guessed from the title of this post that I don’t much care for Gearscore, but perhaps not for the reasons you think.

To understand what bothers me about it, and why people that moan about it bother me even more, we need to look at why it emerged, and why I think it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
