Been awhile since I posted screenies of this journal's name sake. So here's a couple.

Vince Lombardi, Patron Saint of Battlegrounds

"Winning isn't everything, it's the only thing." His most famous saying.

And when it comes to battlegrounds, it's true.

Because the point of the battleground is to win. Period. End of discussion.
How much damage you do doesn't matter. Your number of honor kills and killing blows doesn't matter. Boasting about them is like boasting about masturbation: no one cares but you.

"I'm just here to have fun!" If I had a dollar for everytime I heard that, I'd be rolling in dough. It's interesting to see how many people change their tune when it becomes obvious that yes, Virgina, we are going to lose. Suddenly losing matters. Call them on it -- and I have, on both Horde and Alliance -- and their lack of response is deafening.

Because some people seem to have forgotten: winning is fun. Everyone likes to win. No one likes to lose. You say you don't mind losing? You're a liar.

And, to quote Vince again, "If it doesn't matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?"

"I'm just here for honor." Then play like you actually want it. Oh, sure, you get honor if you lose, but not nearly enough as you do when you win. (In fact, Alliance on several servers in 2007 staged a strike when losing Alterac Valley suddenly didn't net you a single point of honor, thanks to then-recent changes in the BG.) Winning is more efficient when it comes to gaining honor.

Winning: just all-around superior to losing.

How NOT to use the Random Heroic LFG

Don't be these n00bs )

If you want a guildie to come along, don't use the Random LFG. Wait until your guildie says to toss out an invite.

If you realize you've accidentally put yourself in it after the first cross-transfer, don't click on the Finder again.

If you can't follow the simple steps above, don't threaten people with constant death. Because it will wind up on the intarwebs, and everyone will see what assholes you and your guild are.

Whoa. Been a long time.

Despite my love for my blood elf mage, my heart belongs to Alliance.

I have no idea what you're talking about...

So here's a picture of Thunderbrew Distillery with a bunny on its head. )

Noblegarden shot of Ceyte in bunny-form, my gnome DK on Cenarion Circle. I love gnomes. They're my favorite Alliance race. Cenarion Circle is an RP server, so I've combined RP with the need to run around the lowbie areas and pick flowers to level up my Herbalism. Ceyte doesn't wear her DK armor, and doesn't use a weapon. She kills things with her fists.

Which is kind of scary on its own.

And she doesn't talk to people. At all. XD

Finally making a post!

Kiraleen, Ravenholdt, (currently level 41), my blood elf mage, is the highest Horde character I have. I stared her on The Scryers, lost interest in playing her due to being bit by the raiding bug on my main, and only recently picked her up again. Thanks to a post on LJ's wow_ladies, I found an RP guild that actually fit her personality (brief summary: she's the My Little Pony of the Horde). Granted, Ravenholdt is a RPPVP server, and I suck worse than a Hoover at PvP...but you can't have everything. Compared to Boulderfist, Ravenholdt's a tea party.

Anyway, it's Noblegarden, and I took screenshots of Kiraleen in her Easter best Noblegarden finest. And a couple in her battle gear. I think the tabard adds some needed modesty. I kept expecting to get an IC-mail from her guild leader: "Recruit. Where are the rest of your clothes?"

Screens behind the cut! )
