Dungeon Finder: Friend, Foe or Fail?
2010/12/28 at 7:11 PM
Recently, a player on the official forums brought forth a strong opinion regarding the use and abuse of the Dungeon Finder. I'll admit, I haven't been using the Dungeon Finder much lately to find groups as I've been solely doing Heroics with my guildmates or premade server groups. Apparently, though, many players are reporting cases of abuse of the system, ending up in groups which are ruled by seemingly tyrannical leaders / groups who call the shots in rude and unfair ways. That is, when they're actually playing. Players are also reporting groups where people will queue up as a majority or tank / healer role, then refuse to actually
play the game
. I'm sorry, but if you're going to sit there and go through the trouble of logging into the game and queueing up for a dungeon, why the hell
How should players deal with this? Is it our responsibility to have to deal with attempting to kick players (which won't always work), or are changes to the Dungeon Finder by Blizzard the answer? Do you think the problem is in the Dungeon Finder's lack of penalty for such players? Would a karma system
work? Read on for a full look at the Dungeon Finder system and learn to

Hey all! Neutronimity here, your friendly neighborhood German translator! Some of you may remember that I am
a blogger, from back in the
days. Seeing as how I'm STILL a blogger, I figured it was time I earned the title!
I know some people are still a bit unfamiliar with using the database, so I decided to write a series of posts to illustrate a few examples of how you can utilize Wowhead to its fullest potential. I hope to be be covering most of the site's tools and taking advantage of their detailed guides. What you'll be reading is a collection of example tasks, using Wowhead, which should inspire you to come up with a similar methods of fulfilling your goals—whatever they may be.
Curious? Read on after the break!
PS: I would like to thank

Increase in Hacked Accounts: Cause for Concern?
2009/07/20 at 6:52 PM
As someone who's been reading and posting in Blizzard's
Customer Service Forum
for over a year now, I can tell you that I've seen my fair share of complaints. Sadly, though, I've been noticing an increase in one particular thing—the amount of accounts that have been compromised or "hacked."
Should this be a cause for concern? With the number of compromised accounts increasing by the day, in spite of the numerous warnings Blizzard has put out, maybe it's time to both clear up the misconceptions as to how an account can become compromised and remind ourselves what we can do to prevent a compromise from happening—or for some of us, from having it happen again.
Taking a Break Can Ease Challenges

Have any of you taken a
recently? I know I have. Sometimes you need some time away from things to clear your head. Maybe catch up on a few chores or errands you put off recently. I remember last playing World of Warcraft a few months ago. I was working on an
which was timed. I thought it was really fun, but it was kind of hard at the time, too.
Whether I'm trying to pull off a huge combo in a skateboarding game or trying to solve a riddle in a role-playing game I feel as though my work would be complete if only I could achieve that one special goal. Of course, it seldom happens that way for me.

Wishing you had a way to get more keys in-game? I had a tough time managing key binds over the years. Eventually I developed a method I like to call
