All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

Hello, I made a comment on this in reddit but thought I would bring it here since many agree.

Can you have him rerecord "Get a cleaner droid!"

It sounds like he is saying "Druid" or "Gurrid".
Not a huge deal of-course. Just thought I ask

Why would you need anyone else? Steve Blum is awesome guy for doing battle commentaries

IMO, having a turtle team is just as much fun, as it is completely viable tactic, Healers and Tanks need to be appreciated more in PvP (tanks especially, I has been a while since I got MvP on my tank for shielding crapload of damage, healers are a bit more appreciated)

I think it's been that way since better. That way as in no one ever looks at protection. They always look at heals or damage.

What is amazing Alex is you can say things like this.. and not get ganked for it.

Standard forum procedure is to gank anyone who says effectively "soon".

You clearly have good forum mojo.

Its not the term soon that gets you a riot

Its releasing information that wasnt expected and then stating more info ....soon....

As far as Arenas, its been announced, we know when well get it, We know the size and the number or maps. We know the rule set (For the most part)

The questions being asked now are the specifics. We know well find out no later than release and we know that the information we do get is not going to incite a riot. What will incite a riot is if they said arenas are the only thing were getting this year for PvP, but soon well let ya know what to expect for our next PvP update, slated for fall of 2014.

That kinda soon is not a happy kind of soon.

The exception to this rule is if soon doesnt have a limit. For example with arenas we know soon is no later than 2.4. Where as if they said arenas would come soon (not specific to 2.4) than this would be a different story because soon might mean 1 year from now, or 1 week from now. Take 2.0. We heard terms of soon starting around 1.3? I remember around 1.6 people trying to figure out what "Very soon" meant, which was another 7 months away. In this case we know soon is probably a few weeks and no later than 2.4
