Gevlon supports unlicensed drivers in Ferraris

| Wednesday, June 2, 2010
You could take my word for it, or you could take his. He's happy that in Cataclysm 10 and 25 man raids will have the same lockouts and the same loot, but more for the 25 man raids. Let's break down the facts.

1) 25 man raids are the real raids, the tests of skill, while 10 man raids are for lazy morons. This is backed up by his own recent talk about blue-geared tanks getting one-shot in ICC because they're stupid and wear blues.

2) Driver's licenses are based on a test of skill. Granted this is skill as judged by the government and is therefore socialist and probably wrong, but the free-market alternative is a truck license and I avoid truck stops.

3) Gevlon thinks it is okay for retards to buy Ferraris: "Half of the homeowners in the USA and Europe (average guys) could buy a Ferrari by selling their homes. Of course it would need a retard to become homeless just for a car, but one could do it."

Add it all up and what do we get?

Being able to do a 25 man raid is a test of skill. 25s don't give better loot because they're harder to organize, but because they're just plain harder. They are tests of whether the player can handle that loot. Can you imagine the consequences if bad players could get good gear? We'd lose all trust and start having inflated gear requirements and next thing we know someone would try to counter this with the complete opposite and call everyone else a moron. That's not a world I'd want to live in.

25 man raids are the driver's licenses of WoW. Furthermore, as we all know, WoW and real life are perfectly equivalent: "They are not bad players in a video game, they are scum people in the real world." This means that removing the skill test for 25 man raid gear also means removing the skill test for cars, specifically Ferraris because those are, as we saw before, driven by poor retards.

QED: Gevlon supports poor, unlicensed drivers running over you and wiping your PUG and it's all your fault because you didn't let the police shoot them first.

Ever since Gevlon proudly proclaimed that the smart player ninja's items every chance he gets, and if EVERYONE ninja'd items, we'd all be happier... I find I have no problem ignoring him.

I'm not a Gevlon supporter, so I'm not defending him. Thus, I'll state it: your post is completely ridiculous.

1) 25 man raids are the real raids, the tests of skill, while 10 man raids are for lazy morons. This is backed up by his own recent talk about blue-geared tanks getting one-shot in ICC because they're stupid and wear blue

25-mans are currently the pinnacle of WoW raiding because it is more difficult. This difficulty is not because it is a "25-man raid" but rather it is tuned higher (since it rewards better gear). If Blizzard awards the same gear for 10-mans and 25-mans they will tune the 10-mans higher. If you think they can't do this, consider Sarth 3d where the 10-man version was considered harder than the 25-man one.

For a WOTLK example, look at the original Rotface. They hotfix nerfed his HP in 10-mans because it was quite difficult.

2) Driver's licenses are based on a test of skill. Granted this is skill as judged by the government and is therefore socialist and probably wrong, but the free-market alternative is a truck license and I avoid truck stops.

I don't even know what you're on about.

3) Gevlon thinks it is okay for retards to buy Ferraris: "Half of the homeowners in the USA and Europe (average guys) could buy a Ferrari by selling their homes. Of course it would need a retard to become homeless just for a car, but one could do it."

What is your point? Gevlon is saying they are retarded to be homeless for a car.

Being able to do a 25 man raid is a test of skill. 25s don't give better loot because they're harder to organize, but because they're just plain harder.

You are extrapolating based on the current WOTLK. It is possible that 10-mans and 25-mans can be equivalent in difficulty, where the 25-mans will be rewarded more because it is harder to organise.

While your post is nonsense, there is no such thing as "bad publicity".

So thanks for the links!

The post makes so little sense, I can't tell if you're trying to make fun of Gevlon or trying to make fun of yourself for making fun of Gevlon.

@Anonymous: That's just the free market. Don't be a socialist.

@Azzur: The gap between 10 and 25 is removed, effectively meaning that a player can get a driver's license for succesfully proving they can ride a bike.

@Gevlon: I think you're mixing up your words again.

@Mingdi: If I started driving south, the mystery would not be if I was in Canada or Russia. Think about that a bit.

@Okrane S: Not mad, just afraid for my life.

O You make me laugh. And all of the people up there do too. Thanks!

I find myself fascinated with Gevlon. His opinions are all over the map, though there are enough common threads that you can almost understand what he's saying. I keep thinking that, at some point, it will all come together and he'll start making sense... but it never does.

He's the "Lost" of WoW bloggers. Endlessly fascinating, but ultimately unfulfilling.

I think I'd be able to take him more seriously if... no, you know what, I don't think there's any way I could take him seriously.

I completely disagree with your agrument that 25 man raiding requires more skill. I play a resto shaman and in 25 man ICC I chain cast chain heal off the tank for 3 hours straight. In our 10 man ICC runs I am forced to use all of my healing spells and am forced to make more decisions based on what is happening to the raid at the time. 25 man raids do not require less skill but they do require more coordination.

"Gevlon supports unlicensed drivers in Ferraris"

Kinda sounds like a tabloid headline.
Good laugh though :)

More like he supports poor, unlicensed drivers running over you and wiping your PUG because you invited the poor, unlicensed driver and when run over you wanted to be a nice guy and give him another shot, rather than just shooting him in the face yourself.

@joeego: Po-ta-to, po-tah-to.

That's a popular lie, kinda like "Opinions can't be wrong"
