2.0 Patch Stress Relief Thread

Okay guys, we've listened to it for the longest time, here's our chance. Come up with your best "zomg Blizz sucks"; "cry more n00b"; "I got banned 4 no reason" type parody.

Courtesy Neuro:

Remember, remember, the fifth of December,
the day all the addons got shot.
I know there were reasons, but the players cried "Treason!"
and then QQed quite a lot.


The sister thread on the Blizz forum is here

What is Blizzard thinking?
Why do they hate us so much?
They're just purposely breaking our mods, aren't they?
This is just some sick joke.
Every patch, they break all our mods - on purpose.
They don't even care about us.
This is truly the end of the World... of Warcraft.

----------------------------------
Note: The above is satire. Anyone who actually thinks the above needs to realize that Blizzard needs its users to survive and its design decisions are probably the best for the userbase as a whole, even if your precious Decursive no longer works.
----------------------------------

Happy Mauve Tuesday, everyone.

There once was a d00d who was l33t
With AdOns that no one could beat
Then on the fifth of December
a day to remember
he got pwned, cause his code turned to sheet.

They went and broke my Decursive
Why must blue be so subversive?
I shouted to the sky,
"What are they, high?"
Well, at least their game is immersive...

On Tuesday, the users go QQ
I could hear them all whimpering "boo-hoo"
Their mods were all broke
They're all up in smoke
But I was all like, "sux2bu"

The players cant play with out their good mods,
so they will leave wow and go find some jobs
soon they will realise that wow is the best
and come crawling back to play with the rest.

The new UI discriminates against people with broken keyboards. For instance the 1 key on this keyboard hasn't worked in 6 months. The 2, 3 and 4 keys died soon after. If the 5 key goes I don't know what I'm going to do.

and the rest of us are really quite glad

The 5th of Dec is upon us
Those that prepared will pwn us
I wish I had preplanned
Now the WoW sites are slammed

So instead of playing my game
I am stuck and feeling real lame
My addons won't work don't you know
The default UI, it really blows

Oh I wait for the day
I can login and say
My addons are working
Hip Hip Horay

Quoth the Dev Team

Once upon a patch day dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary
Over many a quaint and nerdish volume of World of Warcraft lore --
While checking realm status, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my game room door.
"'T is some distraught developer," I muttered, "tapping at my game room door --
Only this and nothing more."


Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December
And Discord's every dying ember burned expiring, no more to live
Eagerly I wished the morrow; -- vainly I had sought to borrow
From the forums surcease of sorrow -- sorrow for the lost Decursive --
For the rare and radiant add-on whom the angels named Decursive --
Nameless here for evermore.


And the silken, sad, uncertain plaintive cry of all the cursed ones
Thrilled me -- filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;
So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating,
"'I can learn to train my fingers to decurse and heal once more --
Train my fingers and my eyes and ears alone to heal once more; --
This it is and nothing more."


Deep into the patch notes peering, long I sat there wondering, fearing,
Doubting, dreaming dreams no undead priest had dared to dream before;
But curses remained unbroken, and the BGs gave no token,
And the Warlocks grew more broken, broken now more than before.
This I whispered, and an echo murmered back, "Intended. L2p. /ignore."
Merely this and nothing more.


Bits I sought while peer to peering, when sudden, sinister, and sneering
In there stepped a stately Dev Team of the saintly days of yore;
Not the least obeisance made they; and Decursive knew its last day.
Code protected, Dev Team smiling said, "Curses aren't to be a bore."
Asked about Decursive's fate, about a button's changing state --
Quoth the Dev Team, "Nevermore."


And the Dev Team, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the servers, keeping log-ins stopped, my play time unrestored.
And their eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming,
And the add-ons, shredded, gleaming, torn in shreds upon the floor;
And Decursive on that pile that lies floating on the floor
Shall be enabled -- nevermore!


(Not really a parody, but thought you all might enjoy it anyway.)

I had a link to my addon.
It died! It died!
Cairenn tried to get it working.
It fried! It fried!
Why oh why is my link dead?
Couldn't that patch have hit me instead.

certain addons will never work again after 2.0

well the 2.0 update has stiffed every serious player of the game, by invalidating all addons, 2 days on my setup is still screwed and i havent played a single hour, but much worse theyve extended theyre lua blizzard only protected commands to cover the following commands :
PROTECTED CastSpell(spellID, "bookType") , PROTECTED CastSpellByName("name"[, onSelf]) , PROTECTED ActionButtonUp(id) , PROTECTED UseAction(slot[, checkCursor[, onSelf]]) , PROTECTED StartDuel("name") , PROTECTED PetAggressiveMode() , PROTECTED AssistUnit("unit") , PROTECTED AttackTarget() , PROTECTED ClearTarget()
PROTECTED TargetLastEnemy() , PROTECTED TargetLastTarget() , PROTECTED TargetNearestEnemy([reverseFlag]) , PROTECTED TargetNearestFriend() , PROTECTED TargetNearestPartyMember() , PROTECTED TargetNearestRaidMember() , PROTECTED TargetUnit("unit") , PROTECTED TargetUnit("unit")
more importantly this means addons that use these functions have no way round this, and therefore dont think its just a matter of time before a your addon will be updated for 2.0 just like always, It is highly possible it will never exist again. Some of these addons made epic level playing bearable. I think blizzard have just shot themselves in the foot here, my 60 char now feels like a level 20 to play now, the loss of access to lua commands like this means a great more mouse movement selecting and clicking for users and we are not all youthfull digited keyboard maestro rogues with nerves run on acid, in MC it means many extremely organised guilds which used to wipe very rarely now wipe 5 times in a night. poor healers are going to suffer from this the most with loss of many addons that made their life bearable in wow. The fact there is no cast spell access now is the mighty blow, I predict blizzard will lose allot of loyal players over this. the ones who understand the implications first and more when those users realise theyre setup will never be the same again.
