I am not a dedicated raider, but I love raiding. Since I can never commit to the raiding schedules that guilds require of their raiders, I am in a constant state of pugging. When I'm not actively in a pug, I am scanning the trade channel looking for one that will have all the qualities required to be successful- gear, experience, patience, and maybe a little bit of luck. When I find such a group, I'm ecstatic. But more often than not, I face group after group of impatient, inexperienced, and under geared scrubs who simply want to be carried to the final boss so they can get their [EPIC LOOT] Those groups often end in a way that everyone who has ever pugged is familiar with- people getting frustrated and leaving. But every now and then, there is a group that fails so bad, the fail is almost a win, in and of itself, for being such a unique level of fail.

Those are the groups this blog is about.

Blizzcon2010 nerds

When in a Pug is going to Blizzcon2010! I'm sure some of you already knew that. But for those of you who didnt know, now you do!

Blizzcon.... Blizzcon. Every hardcore wow-ers (daiblo-ers and starcraft-ers, also!) wet dream. At least, that's what I thought. After all, countless masses wait breathlessly for Blizzcon announcements and then rush the forums after each one. Tickets are sold out in seconds, and then resold (sucessfully) by scalpers for more than double the face value.

And yet, when I asked ingame who was going to Blizzcon, I was confronted with a few "wut?". Even more baffling, I was called a nerd.


Online. In a video game. By another person who was playing the same game. I suppose that's a topic for another thread.

Yes, I am a blizzcon nerd. I'll see all you awesome people in a little less than a week. And all you haters can just kiss it!
