  1. Perhaps it is a generational thing? When I saw Anomander Rake a tall man with silvery white hair great magical and martial prowess bearing a sword nearly as long as he is tall. Who is also the child of a dreaded feminine Eldritch being, the first parallel that occurred to me was Sephiroth. Sepiroth was perfect. Perhaps too perfect... Alas, nothing speaks of a testosterone overload like a mahoosive sword :P
  2. But again saying that's all we hear about is beyond ridiculous. I challenge you to look at Luckers, Barid, Yoniy0 and my own posts to see what we discuss on a daily basis. Stop falsely presenting what happens here(or is it just absurd hyperbole trying to hammer home your point?). Again it is the most cowardly stance to take saying well yeah there are problems but I am just going to ignore them. We are lucky to just be getting the ending. Get out of here with that bs. Cowardly? Were talking about reading books for Christs sake. Theres nothing chivalrous about pointing out errors in hope on getting the "Find The Thousandth Mistake" award you guys are obviously after. And I dont ignore the problems of the book, I just dont see the point of making them the focal point of my existence either. Luckers admitted his mistake, why cant you?
  3. As I said in my previous post Im not mad at people pointing out mistakes, and I certainly dont need them "unveiling" by you or anyone. it just grates that its all we hear about now. We have known there are plenty of mistakes for ages now, you could get over it if you want, but you obviously dont want to, so you drivel on about it all the time like you have nothing better to do.
  4. Seriously what are you on about Drekka? You have been taking shots at the people critiquing for quite some time now and I'm frankly sick of it. That person totally mis-characterized Luckers post, registered solely to attack him and you blame Fish and I for calling him out. I find it ironic that you would do so especially given I agreed with Barid in my post and you have been making it a habit to falsely represent critique as "hate" yourself. Don't insult our intelligence by posing as some impartial observer that is trying to be rational. Barid, myself and others have been trying very hard to bring the thisguy thread back under control to avoid this. Don't try and throw us under the bus as if we are the problem when you have multiple people registering for the first time solely to take shots.- snipe- Such a shame that there's no up voting of specific posts. I completely agree. You guys keep telling that it's just constructive criticism, but it kinda stopped being constructive when you kept beating the dead horse about it. It's somewhat similar to the old "Every thread turns into an Egwene hate thread". And it's gotten to a point where coming here to discuss WoT just isn't fun any more, because the vibe of the forum is so negative and hostile. Exactly! All we get now is RJ vs Brandon, or new threads to resurrect arguments from other threads, or nuclear personal attack threads to the assistant of the guy finishing the thing this forum was made for. Its killing the place.

Don't try and throw us under the bus as if we are the problem when you have multiple people registering for the first time solely to take shots. Forget the person who registered for a single post, that is irrelevent. Instead you need to look at how all this GARBAGE looks from the outside. Do you, or Fish or Luckers-or Jason-think any of all this is doing any good? You have to realize that the fact that Peter posted acknowledgement of that post here, that is serious. It doesnt matter about your personal context or meaning, what matters is how this all appears to Brandon, Harriet and so on. I think you guys have turned Dragonmount into a place to damn the last book. Yea sure its ok to pick up on mistakes and give criticism and all the rest of it, but for once in a while it would be ok to discuss the content, as opposed to the deliverence. TGS and ToM shed a lot of light on long lasting questions but its hard to talk about that side of the books anymore because all we hear about is negativity, ooh look at the super amount of mistakes, look how rushed it was, look how badly its done. On and on and on, it never ends. Quite frankly I think the situation on DM is the least of Luckers mistakes. That post at the top, the one Peter replied to, thats probably one of the worst. So yeah you can call me out all you want but it doesnt make any difference to the real issues at hand here. Feel free to give me as many warning points as you want, or even ban me, but at the end of the day Im not the one whose representing the entire fandom, Brandon and co wont even know I exist, whereas Luckers... well. What do I need to say? All this is going straight to headquarters, probably already has done by now given that Peter posted. They probably think the entire fandom hates them by now because of all this. And the fact that someone registered for a single post to respond to this should be an indicater that this has already gone waaaay too far. Which you and Fish confirmed immediately. P.S. Oh yeah I have an idea. You want to "get the thisguy thread under control?" How about you actually read the opening post, admit Luckers made another mistake there which was part of the antagonism HE HIMSELF mentioned in this thread, and then simply close that thread. Problem solved
  6. Someone seriously registered an account just to say this? Leaving aside all of the inherent flaws in their post along with more ridiculous claims of "hating". Why you would think they have never read any of the critique elsewhere or what Luckers actually said here. That can't be the case if they actually took the time to register and post correct? Edit: As an aside the quote Barid posted sums up my opinion pre-AMoL. That is all I wish to say for now... So Luckers opens a thread to finally face the mess he has made, and Barid agreed, but then you two turn it straight back into the snarky defensive cabal mentality that has caused the problem in the first place? This thread is already dead to its purpose
  7. Well Ive thought for a while now that the Hundred Weaves amplified by Callandor might repair the thinness of the Pattern at Shayol Ghul, that do anything for you? Speculation of course. If they were a way to strengthen the Pattern it maybe explains why they are required in the test, even if the knowledge behind it was forgotten the weaves have survived. I think Nynaeve will have the idea after the main event.
  8. The one that gets me is the whole Brandon hating without directly admitting its Brandon hating. This place is absolutely full to the brim of it these days
  9. I signed up to this crap and I havent got any of the damn things yet! "Hi Im Tor. Want some previews? Give us yer email! *chuckles* They so fell for it, they fall for everything"
  10. If it was as simple as that, Cyndane would have literally had her ass handed to her at the Cleansing. Yet despite being considerably weaker, she beats Alivia. Due to superior knowledge. so strength was of zero importance to that fight. Same goes for Rand vs Rahvin. Despite being on similar levels Rahvin was wiping the floor with him. Because he knew more about the One Power than Rand. Dont pretend you dont love every second of it James!
  11. I voted Nynaeve. But sadly we all know if it came out to a fight Egwene would have to win
  12. Hmm. Personally I think Cadsuane is bigger than that kind of death. To be honest while TGS is one of my favorite books I hate-HAAAAATE!-the way Cadsuane came out of it. By the end of KoD she was fighting Moiraine for 1st place on my list of favorite women, what with the fact that her and Rands relationship had come so far (which I loved every second of, because she got him to work on her terms despite the massive Aes Sedai paranoia arc). Then TGS came, and Shaidars secret existence led to Cadsuane being the scum of the Earth for most readers! I felt robbed of an awesome character. So my point is, if she dies, Id want it to be something pretty damn decent, something waaaay better than Verins. And whether or not she does die (which I hope she doesnt) then I want the whole Shaidar thing being revealed to Rand before, so she gets back to her old awesome self for a bit in the last book. Maybe, Alanna gets captured and taken to the Black Tower and dies there, Rand goes dark again and acts like Moridin. Cadsuane exposes Taim as an imposter, and not long after that Shaidar kills her but Rand walks in, Shaidar reveals it was Moriidn who killed Alanna, but not after they 13x13ed her, and he reveals the .Sad Bracelet thing, and that all this was somehow possible because he banished Cadsuane. And out of guilt the list of dead women comes back up with Cadsuanes name at the top. /nevergunahappen
  13. Or maybe the Tam with Rand is actually the Tam from a Portal Stone reflection, and that version of Tam is a Forsaken Blight farmer, who went over to the Shadow because Morgase put taxes on Two Rivers tabac. Hes been breeding Worms for years
  14. Said it before but might as well throw it in here. The Dark One can possess True Power users, Rand will instigate this and plan to die while possessed, thus weakening the Dark One enough to ensure he wont strike again while the the Pattern is fixed. Narishma, Alivia and Nynaeve will link with Callandor, with Alivia in control, and they will kill Rand while he is possessed. Then Nynaeve will take over the circle and do the Hundred Weaves augmented by Callandor, thus mending the thinness of the Pattern at Shayol Ghul. The end.
