Well, perhaps that’s the wrong word. We haven’t pissed a few people off, but we have, apparently, pissed off a great many kitties.
Grandeur took down Heroic Majordomo Staghelm last night utilizing the well-publicized 0-7-0-7 strat whereby you never really do much to his Domo-ness in scorpion form, reserving all of your anger and rage for repeated Cat form cycles. I thought this was a fine idea and, as you’ll see below, it resulted in a kill that, while definitely not clean, will most surely be easily repeatable. I went to bed with a smile on my face and songs in my heart, dreaming of avoiding nasty leaping domo-cat successfully all the night long.
Then 2:30AM rolled around, and the phone started ringing.
It really started with my little kitten walking across my face in a fit of pique and letting forth a loud MROW! Now usually said MROW! indicates that it’s time for breakfast, a meal which, if my kitten had his dithers, would come at progressively earlier hours every morning. So I did what I always do. I booted him out of the bedroom and went back to sleep. But then the phone calls started happening. Some of them were just heavy breathers, but when one managed to text “I’m gonna use your face for my scratching post you murdering bastard!” to my cell, I realized that this was going to be a problem.
I went to my email, thinking to draft a letter explaining our guild position to publish on our website, only to find that things had gone viral. The angry kitties even had t-shirts already.
(You don’t believe me about picking the picture because of the t-shirt do you? I didn’t think so. It’s all over your face.)
Anyway, then I made the mistake of checking my email. Things had reached a pretty nasty state.
This was followed by something which, at the very least, made me worry slightly less. Not all of the kitties were a threat, it seemed. Consider this protester:
So it seemed that some of the kitties were being angry just on principle. I could understand that. After all, I’ve been playing WoW with pissed off people for years, and some of them just genuinely like being pissed off. In fact, we had even made some fans along the way.
But for every fan, there were at least 20 guys like this little fella:
Finally, things reached a boiling point when the SPCA called me up to scold me about our victory. And then some chick from PETA who babbled about fur and her lack of implants rang on to tell me I’d be held responsible if the beautiful cat at the wheel of the white bronco was harmed in any way. I turned on CNN to find this beauty being broadcast:
I contacted the head of the Angry Kitties Against DomoCat Abuse (AKADCA) at their website. How they managed to form a non-profit organization dedicated to ridding the world of kitty abuse, both natural and virtual, in the four hours since we’d successfully downed Staghelm is beyond me, but I was desperate. After some negotiation, their leader agreed to a truce in exchange for some concessions on our part. The peaceful kitty is pictured below:
The AKADCA agreed to let us post our victory…
In exchange for their peace, we will fulfill our end of the bargain and dispatch their mortal enemy…
So much work to do, but at least I’ll be able to sleep tonight.
I’m sure many of our readers, or at least maybe 3 out of the 4 or 5 total who read this, wonder what my day in WoW might be like. Well, let me tell you, I get some very strange tells. I got this beauty the other night as we were discussing epic meltdowns such as those I have almost weekly in Mumble. I found out, much to my chagrin, that perhaps I don’t always have the desired effect:
