    Default Squeee!

    Okay, imagine that you're at a Dr. Who convention, and the most recent doctors have shown up and started making out in front of a large crowd of fangirls.

    That is roughly what the reaction to the *.Storage.* API sounds like.
    You can play WoW in any MMO. You don't have to play WoW in RIFT. Oh, and no, RIFT is not a WoW clone. Not having fun any more? Learn to play, noob! I don't speak for Riftui, but I moderate stuff there. Just came back? Welcome back! Here's what's changed. (Updated for 2.5!)

    LOL, I just glanced over the changelog and had a "whoa!" moment too

    Then the cynical side of me kicked in, as I realised "Inter Player Communication" means someone is now going to write "that" addon, but let's hope not.

    lol, at first I was like "what in the f.." and then I looked at PTS notes.

    Yes, nerdgasms happened.

    Both .storage. and .message. solve some issues I'm having with syncing of reconnecting players to encounters without resorting to strange case guesses to where someone was in the encounter (I'm thinking this would be the classic use for messages to sync the returning player), along with version syncing (I'm thinking that is what .storage. would be useful for for me, and possibly minor boss timer adjustments instead of full blown new versions).

    I'll have to see if it pans out as expected on PTS tomorrow.

    Edit: lol @ Doom, that was the first thing I turned to my wife and said as I'd finished reading the patch notes ("that" addon will be viable)

    The problem was never Gearscore; it was always the community. I think we can do better.
