Re: Half off EQ sub, VOA with SC RIGHT NOW+More

This decision was partially based on the very limited utilization of this feature. Very limited utilization, if he ...

Re: Diablo 3

Who did you buy it from, and what exactly did you buy?

Not that it matters at this point, I suppose. If you opened it, the retailer gets to tell you to pound sand. Let me see if I can get ahold of the install ISOs to burn and mail you, so you can at least do something with it.

Re: LoN

As far as why it will randomly crash EQ with the in-game client: EQ can only address 2GB of RAM at any one time. The card art is about 650MB, and if you're someplace busy or art-intensive in game (say, new guildhall, guild lobby, POK), you're almost guaranteed to push over 2GB of RAM usage. Sony... ...

The Starter version is only available if someone that bought the game gives you one of their codes - similar to how the Starcraft 2 demo was released.

Re: AA XP Bonus Going Up In June

Development cycles are often dated for the month the development happened in, not their release internally.

Which causes great confusion at work when someone cites 'the April release', unless you know that they mean April 2011, and our IT department just sucks.

Re: Fall of the Estarim

It's a minor distinction, but instead of getting a buff when you right-click on the Chalandria's Fang, you get an item you can click on to get the buff.

The item you get isn't Lore, and isn't Temporary, so you could build up a supply of the poisons over time (one every 20 hours).
