500th Post Milestone

Grats self on 500 posts.

I would like to thank all the mouth breathing, helmet wearing, shortbus riding WoW players for making it all possible. Without your constant cries for the bar to be lowered, your lemming-like acceptance of dailies and achievements as ‘content’, and your aversion to upgrading your toaster of a computer, we might never have entered the era of cheap WoW clones and tourists swarming the first month of any new MMO released.

Amusing that the very first post on this blog was about how MMO games are now easier, and 500 posts later I’m playing DarkFall while WotLK has indeed shattered the definition of ‘epic’.

And an extra ‘thank you’ to all the readers who time and time again have failed to pick up on any sarcasm and taken everything written here as ‘serious business’. You are a large part of why the MMO space is indeed so special.

    Grats! Rest assured that your posts are not being taken at all seriously in my neck of the woods!

    Congrats, Syn. You are the standard all of us mouth-breathers aspire too. :)

    Grats. You’re why I started writing on my site. Keep it up, mate.

    Great scott! 1.21 blog posts! Er… 500!

    WTF with this eazimode blogging. Any f*cking lamer can crank out 100’s of posts now. Blogging used to mean something back in the days when you had to hand craft your pages in HTML and spit. Nowadays WordPress and Blogger just rollover and dish out welfare blogging apps every times some whining noob complains.

    ;) Big Gz Syncaine, I’m a big fan of your blog.P Please keep up the insightful observations and the occasional entertaining flamewars.

    Thank you for supplying me with an endless amount of amusement. For when I feel bad in the morning I know I can always turn to you to have a laugh at those poor deluded WoW players. May the fruits of your blogging loins be largely fruitful.

    ‘Do we really need these types of announcements? Congrats on getting 500 rants posted on a tiny website for free, but when that happens weekly on CNN, it’s not exactly breaking new ground. Come back when you have some data on how many people are actually PAYING you for something.’

    …Grats on 500 posts anyways, Syncaine. =D

    This is pure CRAP. I can get 500 post while I sit in my bathroom and crap all over your favorite EZMODE with FRIES puny MMO. I can get ONE THOUSAN if I want to, but I don’t cuz I’m too busy raping and bringing destruction FIRE and MAGI to your stupid candy-ass hamlet. LOL. PWND. GG(not) noob. Go back to Seconds Life.

    (/Forumfaller mode: off. grats on the 500th. Syn! ;) )

    Wow, what do you have against toasters?

    Gratz on 500!

  13. Anne says:

    Ya, def gratz on 500 posts! I find this is one of the only blogs or sites that deals from a hardcore point of view, even the new ensidia website is just full of constant carebears/casuals.

    And it really does suck the way that MMORPGs have gone, it seems the more and more MMORPGs you have, the lower the quality for them is… Lost are the days of epic questlines, epic raids, free roaming PVP where a mini war would start up because of one gank. Even this gaming show of here in Australia just named flying mounts in MMORPGS (when they were introduced in WOW) as a huge moment in gaming history, that is just pathetic.

    Again, gratz, and I hope you keep going for many years to come.

    Tell all your friends

    It’s been a while since I dropped by, but I couldn’t miss this occasion. Congrats on reaching this major milestone and keep it up. And don’t worry, I’ll drop by before the 1000th post! Promised!
