"When life gives you lemons, shoot them back at life at high velocity."

Absolutely love this answer. Seriously ArenaNet needs to make the 'Hey Bookah' advice column a recurring item where fans can submit questions and the best ones get answered in the hilarious Asura fashion.

Agreed! I thought that was an awesome touch they added in for this, and part of me wishes they had thought of these cool kind of extras sooner! I specially liked that last one, I'll be sure to carry around a spray bottle full of water in case I need to motivate any feline companion I might have.

Umm... Jef Reahard is part of the Massively staff. His job is to report on any news from any MMO. So... he is simply doing his job by reporting the two new blog posts from ArenaNet. And they are anything but fluff, they give the community some background insight into the design of the Asura and the company's sense of humor (the Hey Bookah! advice column).

As for the SWToR article Jef wrote earlier, again it's his viewpoint. If your want to criticize him do so on that article, not this one.

He also was not trashing BioWare with his OPINION piece so much as MMO combat in general. Yes, he used SWtoR as an example in that piece (for the simple reason that it was a golden opportunity for BioWare to do something different). However, if you read that piece you will see that his complaints also pertain to the majority of what ArenaNet is doing with GW2's combat.

I think that ArenaNet does at least try to break from some of the traditions (if for no other reason that there's more consequence for failure), which is why he focused on BioWare with that rant. And let's face it, SWtoR is not doing diddly to break away from the old model of MMO combat. But at the end of the day, Jeff's complaints apply to both games.
