  1. I stopped playing WOW during Wrath as I saw it as a "just get to max level" kind of game then. They took from the story and made it just about getting the next best thing they patched. Perhaps this is why i like the Elder Scroll stand alone games more than MMO RPGs. It was also just too easy, no challenges to really make me want to work for something. I joined a vanilla server and have been playing at my own pace and doing OK. I won't go back to a paid subscription, when I can play for free and there are still thousands of people playing.
  2. Apparently it is now just on for everyone. I realize it is a useful tool for many people. In fully realizing that it is an arcade game, I still don't like this option for the feel of the game. While this is just a minor frustration for me, I am playing less and less due to how they game is changing over time, and things like this are pushing to make me stop playing in general.
  3. Not useful to me? That's the best I got. In my opinion, I should have a better idea then a marker on the mini map of what is going on in the game. Yeah I get it, many people like it. But I don't and feel it makes an already overloaded mini map more overloaded.
  4. The last known position on the minimap
  5. Anyone know how to turn this off now? I haven't been playing much as I am still getting caught back up from a month of travel, but I really don't like this feature. Any ideas? The old way in the in game minimap settings doesn't seem to be there anymore...
  6. Two days back at home, and uploaded some more to my lifesuck... I mean facebook account. https://www.facebook.com/Timilton/media_set?set=a.10160308169850527&type=3 Going to try and actually get some more PC time tonight after all the yard work that needs catching up.
  7. This is what I got last night. Working on mowing and getting the irrigation back out.
  8. Was thinking about linking pictures here this weekend. Last year was OK. Ended up with about 5.5lb dry hops of which I still have some left. This year, most everything came back. Was planning to replace a variety that did poorly but it ended up coming back really strong. Another that did pretty well last year did not come back at all... So I expanded a different variety that I like into that spot. A few plants from the others did not make it, but I was able to buy a few rhizomes and the spot is coming back again. Will get pictures soon. Also, I have a brewery in Southern NH that is willing to get 10lb of each to start playing with and learning if they could fit my hops in their beers.
  9. Any other homebrewers going to Homebrew Con in June? My American Brown placed first in Boston, so now the trip is more meaningful to me.
  10. Is this a cross server clan battles? I remember seeing something about that, and maybe it is contributing?
  11. Got home tonight and figured I would try WoT again to see if I DC there. Before even doing it I noticed that my WG client had some little patch go through. Thought that funny, and logged into WoWs. Played a couple games with no DCing. Thanks WG for reminding me why I hate you.
  12. I am using my own modem, but have thought about asking for one from Spetrum. They are free now through them so no more rental fees. Also my current big thing for spectrum is that they are just part of SPECTRE 😵 I have not played WoT or WoWp in a long time... I would probably have to make an alt account just so I don't try to take a tier 9 tank/arty out and get stomped... But might try that as a bigger conspiracy for me is that WG is punishing my anti-CV-rework-ness....
  13. I can try that. I have tried similar things in the past with little noticed. At the same time I have turn my graphics all the way down and still DCing... I might call spectrum and see what they think. This has been slowly getting worse over the last few months... WG support is useless and blaming my router as I DC more when connected through it instead of through a direct connection...
  14. Nope. It is spectrum. They are the best I can get in the area, 100Mbps and I speed test around 115Mbps. About 4 or 5 months ago, I started disconnecting from JUST WoWs, and contacted them about. There was also a lot of general service disruptions going on so they sent a guy out a couple times. General service has been better, but I kept disconnection from WoWs only. I have a new computer and have been trying all the things google searches turn up to help with the issue but it keeps getting worse. Yeah I go through a router too, and when wired in, I didn't have any issues up to 10 minutes into a match. I still feel it is on WG's side some. Sure there might be more I can try, I will call my ISP and ask them about it when WG support asks me too. But tonight I some how got enough stuff to get the Hermes CV thing so did. It was the worst disconnection fest I had ever experienced in WoWs. I DCed less then 5 minutes( "normally" the first DC wouldn't happen until after 5 minutes) in match one with two more to follow. In my second match it was, first DC was at 2 minutes, second around 8 and third around 17... Not sure it 100% on my side...
  15. I have been trying to get the game to not disconnect for over a week now with WG support. This is the only game I play online that disconnects every game. If given something to try, I might be on for a game or two. Otherwise, I hate to say I will not be playing much as it is not worth it when any where after 5 minutes in I can disconnect at random.
