Complex systems?

I was recently browsing around the support forums of World of Warcraft and found this nugget posted by a “Customer Service Forum Representative”:

Epix!

My WoW toon just went through a few upgrades, so I wanted to document my current gear (raid) here. I’ll look back on this months from now and laugh.

The Great Experiment Has Failed

One of the things that drew me into World of Warcraft was the game’s ambition. They set out to create a huge online world in which thousands could interact a...

TBC Countdown : 4 days

World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade expansion is set to release on Tuesday, January 16. I preordered my copies way back on October 10 through Amazon. Ev...

Honor Update: 21971

So the new honor system is one week old today and my goal was to have at least 22,500 honor (for the Grand Marshal’s Dirk). Sadly, as you can see, I wa...

New Honor System

Knight-Lieutenant (Rank 7) [10%]

With only 8.6k honor last week, I’m happy I stayed at Knight-Lieutenant, only dropping 8 spots (440th → 448th). Many of us thought patch 1.11 was comin...

Knight (Rank 6) [56%]

Didn’t do much pvp’ing last week, so I dropped a few points. There has been new-found interest in pvp ever since they annouced the upgraded armor rewar...

Knight (Rank 6) [90%]

Almost. With just over 72k honor last week, I was hoping I made the jump to Knight-Lieutenant , but I just barely missed, so I’m still Knight (90%). I ...

Knight (Rank 6) [4%]

Knight! I was pretty shocked to find that I had jumped up a rank this week. I think I only had one good WSG match last week, and fewer than usual match...

Sergeant Major (Rank 5) [52%]

Well, I was pretty busy with my house last week. Only managed slightly over 5000 honor, so my rank didn’t change much at all. My standing dropped sligh...
