/ BLOG / WoW irritations
Chris is trying to get me involved with WoW, so after playing with a character on his account he gave me a guest key, and installed the game. Before even getting into the game I have a few issues;
- Good lord, a nearly 6GB client?! EVE (which I’d argue is bigger and prettier than WoW), Second Life, Project Entropia, etc. aren’t that bad. Hell that’s edging past a well used UT2004 installation
- If you skip creating an account when doing the installation, finding the webpage is somewhat trickier than it should be, as the main WoW-europe page doesn’t have a link there.
- Asking for card details when creating said account, when I’ve input a guest key, looks unprofessional - you have no need to know that information yet, thank you
- Bittorrent updater - I’d read about this on Penny Arcade a few months back, when it was first introduced. Now I see why it sucks so much. For the love of god, let me configure my upload rate in the actual program. I share this connection with other people for fucks sake, and doing at the router / with another application is just kludgey.
