Casual Mode Engaged

Hola blog lovers!

This past week has been a very interesting week for me, both in real life and in WoW. (/shock)

First off, I had to work the first shift and surprisingly, I liked it alot. I got to hang out with co-workers that I never see and it was surprisingly fun. I definitely thought about making a permanent switch to the first shift, but as of now, that isn't a possibility. I get paid 10% more working the shift that I work now and that would be gone if I went to the first shift. Being a new house owner, I can afford to give that up right now. Maybe in a few months or so, but definitely not right now.

How it started...

So what else happen? Oh yeah...lots of WoW related stuff. I have been playing again, alot more then I have been the past 3 months. Hell, this weekend alone I probably put in 10+ hours of WoW action.

Let me back up a little though...

My fucking ps3 decided it wasn't going to read discs anymore. Of course it isn't under warranty anymore, that ended 6 months ago. I could either ship the ps3 to Sony and pay them 150 bucks to have them fix it or use that 150 bucks to do something useful, like pay bills. Unfortunately, I have to use it to pay bills.

It was about 2 days after this and I was having video games withdraws. No ps3 to play, so I thought I would attempt to start playing some WoW. A few real life friends of mine, who played on my server, informed me that they have rerolled to another server and leveling ally toons! /shock!

Sounds fun right?

...yeah /wrist

So I decided to join them and make an ally toon. My favorite race in the game is part of the alliance (Dwarfs), so what the hell. I really wanted to level / play a druid, but I couldn't bring myself to actually play a night elf. Just the thought makes me want to deactivate my account.

However, all of the playable classes for dwarfs do not interest me at all. I could rock a Space Goat, but I ran into the same problem. None of the classes interested me, like AT ALL....none. So I made a priest because it was the best option in my mind.

FYI....leveling a priest is horrible, especially at the lower 1-20. Its boring and I was only doing it to feed my video game withdraw and hang out with my friends that rerolled.

So that was about 2 weeks ago, but last week is when it got really interested lol.

Back on my old server

I am not going to get into too much detail about this subject, but the guild that I created, managed, and spent a retarded amount of time on, is now strictly a social guild that only has real life friends as members.

I always thought about kicking everyone out except my real life friends, but it seemed the guild was still raiding and kicking ass. Reading through the guild forums lately was pretty sad though. The few core raiders that we had left, were really upset and looking for some sort of leadership to step up and lead the guild. You know, setup structure and a direction...stuff like that.

I spoke with a few people via private messaging and overall, it was bad. We were 10/14 in Ulduar 10 man with progression happening every week. Since I left, the most they killed is 6. Not to mention that people weren't enjoying playing the game anymore, let alone raiding. The final straw is when I found out that they were having major issues getting 10 people online to raid weekly. Alot of the time they would pug someone or not even raid.

So I decided to end it. I didn't /gdisband, I just kicked everyone out that wasn't a very good friend. I also kicked out the active players, I didn't think it was fair to them to be in a guild with no leadership or direction. I thought I was doing people a favor, force them to find another situation that suites them better.

Instead, they reformed and created a new guild with damn near the same people lol. Atleast this guild has leadership and a direction, its amazing =P

Guild Forums

That was fun. It was mostly people saying how much fun they had and that they understood why I did what I did. No hard feelings, ect...I did have some hate / nerd rage, some which I was ok with, some not lol.

The one guy that was pissed off at me was a long time member, but not a raider. Understandable, but I replied to his nerd rage and overall he understood where I was coming from.

Another guy went off on me pretty hardcore. The funniest thing about it is that I never met the guy before. He was recruited after I stopped playing. He went on about how much of a dick I was and actually said "fuck you"

....wait for it to set in

Yes, he actually got so upset that kicked the 8-9 active people that he decided to go on a nerd rage rant and I was the target lol. I wanted to reply so bad and go the hell off on this dude....but I decided to not to. I did reply was kinda funny...I just made him look stupid. I mean, he didn't even spell my name right lol.

If you are more interested in the drama, you can read it for yourself. After I took kicked 90% of the guild members out, I pretty much trashed our guild forums. I left some stuff opened for the public to view. See for yourself here

Back to the drawing board...

So what is a man to do? I need to feed my video game addiction. My console system is level 80 toons don't hold my attention long level 16 priest isn't fun to play, plus its on a bunk ass low pop server.

Damn right, I decided to level a druid on my server. Like I was saying before, I was really interested in leveling a druid, but I couldn't get myself to play a Night Elf. So at 2am on Friday night, I made a female tauren toon out of complete boredom.

Come to find out....I really like it.

I played for the majority of the weekend and got the druid to 22 already. I also joined up on a Naxx25 clear up of last two bosses on my shaman. It was fun to relearn how to heal / play during those encounters lol.

So there you have it, I am back playing WoW. I wouldn't call it a complete comeback, but hell....10+ hours over the weekend....that is more then I played combined over the past 3 months lol.

Until next time...I'm WTFout!

Here's the Scoop - New Blog

I have been thinking alot lately. (I know, fucking scary thought.....I am aware =P)

This blog and 97% of its readers are looking for WoW related stories and events. They don't care about my other interests or life stories. They may not dislike them, but that isn't the reason why they come to this blog. They want to hear WTFPWNAGE stories about raids, new information about their favorite class, and overall interesting reads about World of Warcraft.

For the past 9 months I have enjoyed writing about these things. I have met and created relationships with people from all around the world because of my writings on WoW.

But for the past 2 months, I haven't had anything to say WoW related. My love for the game is still there, but my passion for playing is gone. Here is the crazy thing, I found out that I really enjoy blogging. I really enjoy writing down what is on my mind and have people comment / discuss it.

Do you see my problem????

WTF do I do with my blog??

It would seem wrong to switch the theme of my blog this far into it. I have over a 100 articles and over 600 comments (mostly helpful ones =P) all regarding WoW. Even though I am only posting an average of 1 post every 8 days, I am still getting over a 100 hits a day on my website from my other articles.

It would just seem silly to switch themes and ruin all of that.

So my other option?

Create a new blog of course! Except that noone would probably read or comment on my articles LOL. Which is, unfortunately, why I love blogging. The interaction, the discussions, the thought that I know someone is going to actually read my article.

Those reasons weren't important to me when I first started blogging, but without it I wouldn't have made it past a few months. My readers is what keeps me going. Without them, its just not the same.


So yeah, that is what I have been thinking about lately. Our favorite DK Tank, P, hasn't posted for a long time for the same reasons. He actually started his own blog, Lincoln Freed the Slaves - Semi-professional Asshattery.

Its pretty hilarious title IMO. You really have to know "P" in real life to understand how funny it actually is. The blog is mostly about other interests (Mixed Martial Arts, Fantasy Football, Movies, Music, Other video games, ect) in his life other then WoW and funny, humorous stories / events.

I wrote an article on his site last week about titled, "Sicilians, Blacks, and 30 lbs of Cocaine". Pretty much about one of my favorite movies and one of the best scenes in that movie.

What does this mean? Get to the point!

Until I start playing WoW again or until I have a post that I would like to share with the masses (probably 2-3 times a month). I am going to be blogging about wild shit over at Lincoln Freed the Slaves - Semi-professional Asshattery. I hope you visit and put us on your reader. If you like WTFspaghetti's writing style / personality and have been reading this blog for awhile, come check us out.

I would appreciate it <3

So until next time, I'm WTFout of here!

Woah...its like July and stuff

Morning blog lovers!

Been a couple weeks since I last wrote and alot of shit has been going on in my life. I closed on my house and I am now a house owner. I have been doing everything from pulling up weeds, to painting walls....hell I even installed a wood floor.../shock. It took 8 hours, but hell, its done lol.

As you can probably tell, I am still not playing wow due to the time investment of my house. Just wanted to give you guys a heads up...that is if I still even have readers LOL. I know when I was blogging on a daily basis, it would piss me off if an author would spend a week or two between posts. I would think to myself...PFFT, amateur! More then likely I would take them off my blog roll and move on to try and find another blog to fill their spot. Funny how a little time changes things....

Moving on

I would like to share a few videos with you guys. Both of these videos are kinda work safe. There isn't any naked females (sorry) or cursing. The videos due involve one of my favorite sports though, Mixed Martial Arts.

He stole 93 million dollars???

Yeah, this dude is the complete, all around, bad mother fucker. Not only was he a very good fighter with the potential to REALLY be a champion in the UFC, but he has brass iron balls due to the fact that he is "assumed" to be the mastermind behind the largest cash robbery in the history of the WORLD!

The funniest thing about the whole story is that he could have stolen somewhere around the 300 million dollar mark, but their get away truck RAN OUT OF ROOM....

Watch more e 60 videos on AOL Video

The French would whoop your ass

I know what your thinking. Yeah right, F the French, blah blah blah. They should stick with fashion and other arts. Little do you know that France is home to some great fighters.

This guy that I am about to show you is one of my favorites. When I first started watching MMA, this highlight clip definitely made me a fan the more that I watched it.

Jerome LeBanner is his name and he isn't actually a mixed martial artist, he is just a kick boxer. However, the video is full of win if you like to see people get knocked out....and lets be serious....who doesn't?????


Until next time I'm WTFout!
