Hey man, not too bad! I got back into WoW in a very big way, and I think it's kinda obvious what other gaming habits fell by the wayside when that happened back in November : /. I still check back here on an irregular basis just to see whats up. I think I might try to get back into the game, so to speak, when I have some down time.
Not a terrible idea, but I feel like that might be unnecessary. Balls don't really sell for that much, so I feel like the differences between different team setups would be minimal at best. I feel like different setups would be even with blackouts too, because with a smaller team you get higher levels and less chance of dying, but with a bigger team you have more mons at your disposal. Ther way I see it, it all evens out.
Yo, I have an idea. Maybe you should include final team count in the final statistics when someone finishes the Cheapskate Challenge. That way you're not comparing people who basically solo and people who like having a full team.
