    Well let's make sure we're clear...

    Everyone here thinks it's lame to call it a greed roll just because no one else rolls, so that you can scam a later drop with your need roll.

    No. Your words were antagonistic and hateful, unlike mine which resemble more of a civilized disagreement. You were also the instigator of the hateful exchanges with Casual.

    Here is a record from the mod forum:

    As a result of your posts against Casual I started receiving hack threats from their members, so I issued a formal apology to Blokk (leader of Casual at the time) and removed you from the guild.

    The thread is starting to wear down. People are still focusing on my person instead of on the original topic, but the cutting insults are beginning to dull. It is turning into a contest of who can get the last word.

    When warlocks stop being PvP EZ-mode, then I'll let you own a thread or two.

    I can kill warlocks easy if I have the element of surprise. For example, in EoS I like to play D. I will hide behind something on the outskirts of a node and wait for the status bar to move (that way I know a horde is there), then I shield up, bring out my pet, and get in 3 simul-nukes before they know I'm there.

    All mages know they are easy kills, but they don't adjust their strategy to address that problem. I see mages on defense sitting in plain sight, or mages who go on solo offense without team support. My effectiveness is reduced considerably when I do stupid stuff like that.

    True, but I could just as easily change that to:

    I can kill (insert class here) easy if I have the element of surprise.

    and it would still be true a large majority of the time.

    I know nothing about EoS though, having never been in there. You are right that most mages equate their effectiveness to 1v1 PvP, but even in group PvP and arena, smart teams will use /assist to focus fire on a single opposing target, and guess who's first 95% of the time?
