Of Phishers and Hackers

Let me start by defining 2 words that is very rampant in the internet.

Phishing: is an illegal attempt to acquire information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details and other valuable information online.

Hackers: who performs the act of stealing bypassing a security system. 

Put these 2 together, it will only create 1 word: Losers!!! oh right let me add 2 more words: Desperate Wannabes!

Just recently, a Phishing attempt using my gmail account was detected by my computer's security. To be specific, Kaspersky Internet Security 2010. And when I was about to log-in this afternoon to purchase something from the Blizzard Store, I received a warning for several attempts made for logging-in. Obviously, somebody tried, and it wasn't a successful attempt. 

Hear this losers, you are not trying to outsmart me as a player, it's you putting Blizzard's Security System to a test. So, were you able to achieve your goals? As far as I'm concerned I'm still  able to log-in my accounts and thank God, I was able to change everything.

You may live and continue this act as unidentified individuals and that you're masters at getting away with it , but mind you, there's a Greater Being watching  over you. This may not yet be your time, but expect for the worse once you reach your limit.

Hallow's End

Trick or Treat! Hallow's End: an annual Halloween-inspired event which celebrated from October 18 - October 31, 2010. I just recently got an achievement for getting a tummy ache from eating too much candies and for killing the Headless Horseman. The towns of  Brill, Razor Hill, or Silvermoon City,  suffers as the Headless Horseman flies bringing terror and setting houses and buildings on fire. Talk to the Costumed Orphan Matron and learn how you can help put out the flames and get rid of the headless horseman. Find the Headless Horseman's  shrine located in the Scarlet Monastery graveyard. Summon and defeat him, and earn loots such as:  a broomstick mount, a pet, an epic armor  and  the Headless Horseman's mount!
  • Candy Buckets are located in inns throughout Kalimdor, Eastern Kingdoms, and The Outland. You will be able to find it by looking for  an exclamation mark inside every inn. Open by right-clicking it in your inventory. Each candy bucket will give experience, and for maximum level characters, gold.
  • The Wickerman Festival:  throwing stink bombs at the Alliance town and vice versa. Everyone is advised to sharpen their blades, tighten their girths, and prepare for battle!

To Become An Explorer

Simple, before the World of Warcraft changes on December 7, 2010, one of my goals which is in progress right now is to explore the beautiful, breathtaking view of the world itself. Discovering and exploring made me love W0W in an instant. 

Just a little story: I started playing The World of WarCraft to end a deal between me and my husband. To try it for a week was originally the plan. And again, just looking at the world, pulled the curious me. For me, it is the game for all time. I am overwhelmed with the world itself. Venturing to different quests, missions and simply just loving the fact that I am now seeing and playing the bigger and better version of WARCRAFT per se.

I'm running out of time, now that the old world is about to change... Take a  peek on what's going to happen next.

Left 4 Dead-- The Sacrifice Part1

Okay we just entered the first safe room, and my heart is still pounding. We had to go  through a horde of Zombies and the only passage towards the next side is blocked by a powerful Tank. 

Break!break!break! The rush? unexplainable! Woohoo!

Ninjaing

One of the first things I took note of while reading the World of WarCraft book was the article about Ninja Players. In the World of WarCraft, we players join raids, instances or dungeons in order to build up on the guild's play as a team and at the same time, to enhance each character on the team. From Armory, weaponry, making achievements and simply for the fun of it. Part of the whole process is to (NEED) if the player badly needs the weapon or armor being dropped within the whole game. (GREED) if the player doesn't need it, and for this matter, if it totally doesn't apply to his character. When on GREED, you give the player in NEED the chance to be able to get the weapon or armor being dropped.

Now, there are circumstances when a guild may lack team players, and will come to a point when another player must join from a different source, this is when Ninja Looters comes in. On my personal opinion, I would say that Ninja Looting is a form of stealing and cheating. 

As defined on W0WWiki: A ninja looter is a player who takes loot to which he or she is not entitled.

Some do this in order to get armory and weapons for their Alts or alternate, a secondary character. The rest loot for Gold- generating purposes. They sell whatever stuff they could get in an instance.

Early today,  I was victimized by a Ninja Looter who was a Healer we got outside the guild. At first, everything was going smoothly, but as we approach the last level, I noticed that he wasn't doing his job anymore. He wasn't healing our characters.  After which, a weapon was dropped, (which everyone else knows I NEED), this player clicked NEED for it, after getting it he left immediately. What a total jerk! 

Loots per se was never an issue or even considered as a  problem within our Guild, we practice courtesy and respect for each player. Ninja looters, with the attitude and unethical ways you're portraying, it only reflects the kind of person you are in real life. This may just be a mere game for you, but it can greatly show your true color. How hard is it to ask: "hey guys, can I NEED on this?" Our guild is not compose of dumb players and we're not selfish too.
