    Default End of the week with Major Malphunktion -What day is it?

    Busy couple of weeks. When is it not? It always seems like the fall at Turbine goes by in a blur.I'm not even sure when it became October. We are wrapping up update 11 patch 1 soon (barring last minute bug failures of course) and moving headlong into Update 12. I personally can't wait to share - Update 12 is going to be my favorite release this year. Maybe the best new item in a game...EVER. No, it is not Mjolnir.

    Patch has some love in it, a bunch of Pet and Hireling fixes, that melee physics fix, some UI fixes and almost too many to name other fixes.

    So, not a big meaty post this week. Hope you all had some fun with the Kobolds in the cove, and Mabar is right around the corner.

    Go Pats! Go Bruins! Go Red S..er....Brewers?

    Major Malphunktion

    An aside, and it's my post so I can do that...Rage came out this week. I may be showing my age, but I got into this business because of id software. Looking back at that first experience of having a true visceral emotion (fear) playing a game was powerful. Then, the creators let you create levels and stuff for the game? Amazing! It was just like building modules for DnD...but with space marines!
    From Doom, through the Quakes to now, Carmack and company are like comfortable friends. They are no longer at the top of the heap, but that is ok. For a time Romero/Carmack were the Lennon/McCartney of the game industry. Doom for the time was inspired... the creation of a new genre(yes yes there were other FPS games i know), and a new way to play (deathmatch) formed a whole generation of designers. Like hippes in the 60's learning guitars to play Beatles songs, my generation was pasty DnD computer nerds making levels in WadED or in some other editor. Anyway, congrats to Carmack and company for another release...even if it is consolified. I'll enjoy it for the simplicity that id games are. In some ways that is what makes them beautiful.

    It's cool how the current design for the still-popular Team Fortress is so close to the original QuakeC patch, huh?

    Say, did you hear about how in DDO, a Dragonmarked Human who equips an Epic Chimera Fang gains a PERMANENT +4 AC, regardless of whether he keeps holding the item? Cool!

    Sounds almost how like Improved Destruction doesn't confer any different/stacking benefit than Destruction.

    Although I'm not surprised - the whole Bastard Sword proficiency thing had the same bug at first, didn't it? Have the Dragonmarks, equip it once, get a brand new extra feat for good?

    so do any of these fixes include a fix for the new super crazy lag that has been showing up in the last few weeks... so far it seems to be limited to raid size groups for the most part with the exception of the end of weapons shipment that has become almost unplayable to me now with all the npc on screen at once.

    Hey Major, I think what you mean is, Go Tigers! Really, it just never gets old watching the Yankees lose. Especially on a couple of A-Rod strikeouts.

    BTW, for those of you who didn't grow up with the 60s-90s Sox, the true definition of a successful Boston season is one in which the Yankees don't win the World Series.

    Question -

    Are the recent "enhancements" to elite and epic raids anyway related to the colossal collapse of the Boston Red Sox?

    If the answer is yes, if the Patriots implode in much the same manner, would it be safe to say we should expect four or five dragons in an eVon 6?

    Are you guys removing the unfriendly raid boss changes of U11?

    Because, as a PUGger, that would be the best update ever.

    That and the AC pass.
