  1. Carridin, I just wish a lightsider or two wouldve suffered the same fate-ish. God damn it, it wouldn't have taken so much. Killed off or turned one or two of the major characters at the hands of forsaken and the whole forsaken suck/plot armor suck issue would've been non existant :(
  2. +1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000
  3. Would've been Moggy if she hadn't been such a failure, much like the rest of the forsaken. Who cares about the "chaos" they've created when they lose every fight they´re in? RJ really dropped the ball with the forsaken, sure, let them spread chaos from the shadows and by all means kill off a few, but please, please let them have a win every now and then. Couldn't Semi have killed Min at least? And why in the hell did they make such a fuss about having Graendal deus ex machina out of death, only to fail killing Perrin. I best stop here cause I'll get seriously upset if I keep thinking about how RJ removed all the suspense of the series by having every light sider survive at all costs.
  4. My last hope for any tension before the end died with Semirhage and Graendal.
  5. WoT would be divine if it wasn't so incredibly flawed ;)
  6. No! One was better than the other! Im no LotR fan, but it's only fair to acknowledge how much it influenced WoT.
  7. Probably need a bigger pencil.
  8. Gotta love how the Egwene disciplining Nynaeve discussion died in one stroke by randsc.
  9. Male, 26. Likes: Everyone that moves things forward. Dislikes: The stupid ones and the selfish ones that refuse to see the big picture. Most annoying and stupid of all: Gawyn.
  10. I'm sorry, summoning street toughs and then having almost go through with violently raping Nynaeve isn't torture now? So if someone were about to say something inconvenient to you, you would respond with simulated attempted rape? And Nynaeve is supposed to be someone that Egwene respects and admires? And to top it all of, she later feels PROUD of herself that she's finally 'put Nynaeve in her place'. It was a truly disgusting moment of torture, made worse by the fact that Egwene used it to cover up her own transgressions. As for the Aes Sedai test, intervening when the testers actually are resorting to torture and attempting to make Nynaeve fail with all their might isn't favouritism, it's common damn sense. The test was clearly not impartial and became excessively unfair as time went on. Egwene had a perfectly good reason to stop the test and yet continued on the off chance that stopping it would negatively impact upon her. +1 :)
  11. It's like someone said; what most people say jokingly IRL the WoT people live by. I actually met a guy talking like a WoT person the other day, was one of the most annoying people I've ever met. Anywho, of course there is every type of person IRL, but what passes for the extreme where I come from is the norm in WoT.
  12. +1 to both of randsc´s posts. To juan: How is thinking men need to be controlled for their own good not thinking that they are inferior? I haven't read any WoT book since the last installment, but isn't the men pretty much as bad. Always whining about women and so on? I don't really remember, but I'm sure both sexes have annyoed me a gazillion times with their stereotype sexism. About the RJ quote, if it's supposed to mean that his family were like the WoT women then I'm really sorry for them. To abuse, manipulate, fight and consider every man an infant with hair on his chest, is not qualities I would look for in a woman, nor would I like to see them in myself. On a related topic, it's a wonder we haven't seen homosexual couples in abundance considering how appaled both sexes are by each other. Really, the men vs women theme in WoT is the biggest flaw it has, it's like, good story, cringe time, good story, cringe time, good story, plot armor saves the good guys... ;)
