An Ex-Gnome Tank's World

Still Alive (No instance servers are available. Please try again later).

February 16th, 2010 Posted in Uncategorized

We’ve had more than our fair share of problems getting into raid instances recently. As we’re a late-night guild, everyone else is already inside and we keep getting the error message that used to be familiar to players everywhere when it caused issues for every 5-man group.

The following is borne out of my frustration at bouncing against the instance portal for an hour and a half come raid time, destined for a GM ticket. Unfortunately amusing as it is, the GMs can’t help here.

This is no triumph.
I’m making a note here: NO SUCCESS.
It’s hard to understate my dissatisfaction.

The Hidden Circle:
We raid what we must because we can.
For the good of all of us
Even the ones who are dead.

But there’s no sense crying over every boss missed
We’d just keep on wiping till we ran out of fish.
And raiding should be done and we’d have a lot of fun
With the people who are still alive.

I’m incredibly annoyed.
I’m being so sincere right now.
Even when you broke my shield and killed me
We managed to zone in -

And now we can’t even manage that.
As we bounce it hurts because
You said “We’ve fixed it for you.”
Now, we’re not in beta so what’s wasting our time?
We’ve run out of patience for what Blizz think is fine.
We’re not glad we got spurned – think of all the things we learned
Outside the instance, we are still alive.
Go ahead and leave us.
I think we prefer to stay outside.
Maybe we’ll find somewhere else to kill things.
Maybe Warhammer-
Anyway, to raid was great -
And our frustrations are voiced.

Look at me still talking when there’s raiding to do.

When I look in there it makes me wish I was you.
I’ve got instances to run, there are boss kills to be done
With my guildies who are still alive.

And believe me I am still alive.
I’m outside the instance and I’m still alive.
I feel FANTASTIC and I’m still alive.
While you’re dying I’ll be still alive.
And when you’re dead I will be still alive.

Still alive.
Still alive!
