    I feel like Gabe accidentally kicks the plug out of the wall alot. Is that something he would do?

    Also, What is Tycho reading? Inquire minds want to know.

    I had this happen during my WoW days. At the end of a long explanation of heroic Lich King, one of our main tank healers comes on vent commenting about the epicness of his dump. "How... How long were you afk?" "Oh, I just cut out when we were done with blood queen, I didn't need any loot. So, LK guys, right? Never seen this fight, what do I need to know?"

    And some of us wondered why our guild leader drank.

    I don't drink because my family is full of alcoholics.

    But Raid leading is one of the few things in the world that would tempt me down that dark path.

    I never get tired of "MMO world problems" types of comics. As a former raid leader, I'll always identify.

    I liked it until the last panel... no one I've ever raided with admits they were just in the bathroom. Personally, when I return from dropping a duece, I say... "Sorry, I was grabbing a Dew," which in hindsight, might sound even worse... hrm.

    Here's what the next lines would be IRL (Normal/Heroic):

    "Yeah, plenty...that's why we're benching you so you can watch a strat vid."
    "But I need loot off this boss."
    "Yeah, and we need you NOT AFK during strat explanations."

    Here's what the next lines would be IRL (LFR):
    "Adds> Boss. Burn Soulbleeders when they pop"
    "DERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!"

    It's funny. Gabe used to complain about how hostile MOBA communities are.
    It's exactly the same for hardcore raiders who have people who don't/won't learn how to do them properly. You end up wiping/wasting a lot of time because people don't know what they're doing. Similarly, new players at MOBAs are highly detrimental to a team that requires know-how and coordination. Imagine an hour of your life taken from your hands - you had no say in your loss.

    Granted, the learning curve of an MMO is intended to build you to that degree of raid-stomping-hardcoreness, while a MOBA is hard-as-is, but it's the same principle. You feel the rage. The rage at the newbs.

    This comic just feels like the setup of the classic Leeroy Jenkins video.

    That's a Razer headset.

    That's a Razer headset.

    It's also probably a Razer Naga mouse, but I only know that because Mike said he started using one.

  • MarcinMNMarcinMN Registered User regular
    See, now if Gabe had typed all that out, the bathroom guy could have scrolled up and read it in the chat log. But no....we have to use headsets.... ;)

    So, basically, a variation of

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who saw that.

    It's adorable seeing the PA guys discover what some of us lived about a decade ago.

    ...and so did they, in WoW. They're rediscovering it. As can be seen if you read... Penny Arcade from about a decade ago.

    You really should read them, their WoW comics are excellent and pretty much all of them are favorites of mine.

    It's adorable thinking that they are just discovering this now. :D

    The inspiration behind writing more MMO comics lately is probably their recent addiction to Wildstar.

    I guess it's adorable that they're using old jokes then?

    The point is that this is an ancient "realities of raiding" concept that I'm not sure their (seemingly) more casual WoW experiences ever exposed them to.

    Did you just imply that Mike and Jerry are Casuals?

    Sure? Or they were before if this is a new experience for them. That shouldn't be surprising because they've basically come out and said that's how they approach most games (breadth over depth).

    Or it's just the first time they made a comic about this particular thing. They played WoW and raided for a few years. They've seen this thing before.

    I dunno. I get the feeling they aren't new to raiding and herding cats in MMOs:

    Razer approves.

    Btw. is it common to stroll indoors with shoes on ? I always leave them by the front door.
