A husband doesn’t let his wife in when she forgets his keys while he’s raiding…

Who’s at fault? Scya and Mal share stories about real life vs game night.

Swtorista: I found an old picture of us celebrating our first conquest win!!! (above)


This week in You Can’t Make This Sith Up – gigantic pop up notifications about who controls the galaxy. In a recent Operation a dps, whose name has been omitted to protect the other 15 people that were in the group with her, encountered a typical ‘feature’ in SWTOR. You see, sometime ago it was decreed that players could decide to fight for either the light side or dark side of the galaxy. Nevermind that this feature makes very little sense for say, non-force using classes and neutral parties, but I digress. This system was implemented and as a result everytime the galaxy leans towards the one side or the other a giant rectangular box, as big as 3/4s your screen pops up in the middle of the screen. This reporter acknowledges the size of the box might be a salty exaggeration from eyewitnesses, This annoyance stays in the players’ way for about 5 seconds, although to players trying to do 3-4 different things in a raid it feels like hours. Again, this might be a slight hyperbole due to extreme salt.

This reporter will provide you a direct quote from the dps in the Operation, “Get this goddamn ****ing shit off my fucking screen I don’t care about the state of the ****ing galaxy when I’m in a raid.”
