    I'm surprised Boub even acknowledged a World first kill when half the servers were down.

    Oh, and wtf is up with that retarded music in the video? Promonition has to be trolling with that video.

    Anyway , THANKS BLIZZARD for the 18 hours+maintenance . Now all the US scrubs will claim the first 500 kills or whatever ( seeing that even this clicker can kill him , I estimate around 500+kills on HM till EU servers are back or US fails again). Can't wait for Star Wars MMO to kill this shit

    $500! The meal better be epic and I don’t want to be seated next to any casual eaters either.

    I am a hardcore eater thus expect me to eat my meal faster than anyone else. I will then QQ that my plate is lacking content.
    I will also complain my food looks like food I have had before and they are just recycling old food.

    Quoted for Truth.

    Either people need to quit declaring "World Firsts" and only acknowledge NA/EU firsts or they need to quit bitchin' when a World First occurs.

    Technically, it IS a world first. Life isn't fair, get over it. I don't care about "servers were down!" bullcrap. Either you acknowledge a World First when it occurs or you quit caring and only pay attention to each continent (which makes a helluva lot more sense anyways).

    Personally, I could care less about world rankings. What the crew in the EU is doing doesn't impact me in the least. Heck, I couldn't even tell you any major guilds over there outside of Ensidia (and that's only because of all the fanboys around).Frankly, I don't even care about NA rankings for that matter. The only NA guild I could name that's not on Detheroc or Executus is Premonition (once again, due to fanboys).

    Really, I don't even know why I visit the forums. All it is is flames and crying and hypocrisy.

    Ps. Another pet peeve, calling the North American servers "US" servers. I realize we're a big country and all but Canada is our partner in crime when it comes to WoW.

    Maintenance extended until 18:00. "Hi, we're Blizzard and even after years of running this game we can't apply a patch without fucking up."

    Why do Blizz fail so bad with patching? they have already had 12 hours to apply a pretty small patch and now they need 6 more? these guys seriously suck.
