(01/07-2013) – In French, in WoW, there are “noobs”, and there are also a “Kevin.”
Because of the variety of American sitcoms in French television, there has been a wave of “Kevin”, “Brandon”, “Jack”, etc. When the video-games really became used, the smallest players were very young, and many got noticed because of their stupidity.
So a “Kevin”, in French, is a kind of noob. Pretty stupid and, very often, he will believe that he is better than others.
We met Kevin Mokrosh yesterday, sunday, while doing our PvP-quests on the Isle of Thunder at around 10 AM.
As a rule of thumb, we generally let Horde (or Alliance, depending on which side we are playing) quest, while on Isle of Thunder, and most of them let us quest without problems… except on Culte de la Rive Noire.
Horde there is much more aggressive than good and you can be sure they will attack you, whether you are on your or on their territory.
Each day, or almost, Nim and I are doing our “morning PvP”. I want to speak about the PvP-quests on Isle of Thunder.
We generally start with our Alliance, on Culte de la Rive Noire, then we move on to our Horde on Defias Brotherhood.
On Defias Brotherhood, Alliance is pretty cool. They generally pass by us when we are questing (with the exception of a couple of guys, but more about them another day).
So when we are in our “town” and see them questing, we don’t bother them and do the same. We let them quest. I believe it is the rule more than the exception from both sides.
But on Culte de la Rive Noire (RP-PvP), things are somewhat different. The Horde is pretty aggressive and each time we just passed by some Horde who were questing and let them be, we have regretted it. Each bleeding single time, they attacked us.
They died each time by the way since we are two stealth, Laylael (resto-druid) and Tzila (rogue – who, by the way, just got her own personal 10,000 kills) and they, most often only see one of us, generally Laylael.
When Nim and I first started to play WoW (roughly we started one week or two apart), Blade’s Edge was the server Blizzard was recommending to new players. I had originally Horde and Alliance there.
After a while, I moved (or deleted) my Hordes from Blade’s Edge to Turalyon (for PvE) and Stormscale (for PvP).
Our alliances staid on Blade’s Edge and very quickly, we didn’t like this realm very much, but we had time to get some friends, there. Many were in <Godless>: Doedancer, Lycyn, Luzerei and many others and we had a lot of fun together. Blade’s Edge became bearable to play.
After a while, we stopped playing WoW, Cataclysm was a catastrophe.
When we came back, the last week of December 2012, we found that there had been some clean-up in Blade’s Edge: People weren’t that terrible as they were when we left, but it is not really our style.
PvP is still terrible (Alliance side), there are many bots on battleground, more than there were before, and in fact, these bots are playing better than some of the players (just to give you an idea).
