WowMatrix Responds!

Just read this a few mins ago on WoWInsider. Here's the direct link to the "FAQ" as they are calling it on WowMatrix's site.

I had a good laugh...

/popcorn

EDIT: Links to WowMatrix are blocked (not that I blame WoWI) had to take the link out, just follow the link in the WoWInsider post.

Mods, can we get the link re-instated?

While I understand blocking links to WoWM, due to various problems with the client, I think that in this case it's a valid resource (not discussing the content, I'll let others take thier shots first).

Also, ideally I think this thread should be locked, and this post added to the existing one (here)

That's what I originally had in mind... but after I thought about it, it seemed to me that it warranted a separate thread. That one is already 60 pages and most people have read it I think, so they might just pass it over.

On topic though, as voodoo said it just seems as though they are trying to look like the victim here, and gain some respect back. Personally I think it's appalling.

Heh, yeah the whole FAQ was really a joke. I especially liked the way they kept claiming that WoWI and Curse were preventing them from hosting on their own servers. Of course, Curse and WoWI don't own the rights to these addons, and therefore can't grant redistribution rights, but hey, lets not taint a perfectly good argument with blatant facts!

I just found it funny that they actually called it a FAQ. The WoWInsider writer sort of pointed this out, but I don't think those are as much questions people are asking, as they are answers WowMatrix whats you to know, as full of libel as they are.

I have to say that 99% of the commenters on that story are useless wastes of space. All of em WM supports, aka they drank the Kool-Aid. Not only that, they keep swilling down more of the Kool-Aid.

That FAQ reminds me so much of the Fox News Channel. I get FNC via Sky here in Italy and my word, I have never seen so much BS. Same thing with this "FAQ" from WoWMatrix. Sheesh.

Yeah, I actually stopped reading the comments after about the third one. I was starting to get angry, and for the sake of my monitor had to close the page. Such is life with a short temper.

Unfortunately there is no way to override the censorship. I'm fairly certain even administrator posts are censored.

Be prepaired for another 2000+ post count thread here. Now, in my opinion WM is attempting to appear as martyrs here. The problem with that is that a certain notable and arguably holy figure from about 2000 years ago didn't nail himself to the cross, nor pierce his own side with a Roman sword. He also didn't post a FAQ afterwards filled with blatant lies and attempting to blame everyone else for his problems.

'Nuff said. (no, not really lol)

Oh boy... could I ever derail this thread lol.

My first post so, I won't do that though

As a developer, soon to have his own WoW addon(s) to worry about, I see very clearly the side of Curses and WI. With that said, as a player, on patch day, all I have to say is get it sorted out, faster

All aboard! The "Lock This Thread" train leaves in twenty minutes for the WoW forums. Anyone else looking to get on had best ride their soapbox or jump on their bandwagon and get here soon before the seats are sold out and the train leaves!!

A question

I read in other posts the WoW Matrix actually goes into the Blizzard file that contains information such as my user name, if I have Wow set to remember it. If this is true then my question is simple.

If they can access that file are they then not accessing the file that I use to enter my password and therefore are they possibly the people responsible for all the hacked WoW accounts?

I think the worst part of all of this is that WOWI has gotten lumped into it.

I think Curse has done a lot of questionable stuff in the past, and there is no reason to think they would stop now. But when WOWI was (basically) forced into the shutdown on that day, they became a part of the whole conspiracy.

Its not fair to WOWI, and I'm sure more wm users will be over today to tell us how terrible we are.

Thumbs up

its a right choice from curse and wowinterface because of that bandwidth and i like their own servers the only problem is it will get some time before an addon will be updated on wowmatrix because they need to download it on its own so thats why i dont gonna use wowmatrix
