    Usually the claim seems to be that somehow the existence of the Confederacy makes the North isolationist in character (which it has always teetered on the edge of), and that by having the US not...

    I find my problem in competitive games is kind of the inverse of that, in that I find anyone who is behaving like a dick, trash-talking people (on the same side - obviously trash-talking the other...

    I dunno, Handmaid's Tale is the only one that comes to mind. Others are at best stylish disasters. Some alt-history books have been fine but you have to stick to stuff that makes some kind of sense,...

    I just don't think you've made much of a case that it was a particularly illogical scene, and bringing shadow babies and so on in only supports that! :)

    Yeah, likewise, I was a DK (tank) and my wife was Druid (Healer - or DPS but DPS were the easy ones to get), so we'd just grab people from our guild or friends list and go to dungeons. Even doing...

    Nope!

    Cata can be blamed for many things, but both RDF (3.1.0) and cross-realm RDF (3.3.0) are WotLK-era inventions. Raid Finder was last-major-patch-of-Cata, and can't really be blamed for...

    My guild kind of went the other way. We were pretty cutting edge on our server, but Naxx being so boring and hard to key for lost us a lot of people. But we still had so many that 25 would mean lots...

    Not having plate tectonics leads to even more problems than having them, though, at least over a sufficiently long period of time and given they have an active core. Who doesn't love "planetary...

    That's quite a rant Ben, but it seems a bit off, because they do cover most of that stuff in the game at some point. I mean, for example, they didn't think "nothing would be different in 600 years"....
