Inb4 Ruksak defines a practical joke as a mere lie as well..
Grow a sense of humor and stop nitpicking words as if that changes anything
Never on these forums but he is the only guy I recognize. As every single post he makes is whiny and negative.
Would be a great chap to have a beer with. Well, that is assuming I could drink beer. I'm still just a child
Gee...what a surprise. The guy defending the liar and attacking me instead.....is a boy. Imagine that......
I'm not sure why a sense of humor is required in this case? It wasn't even funny, just misleading. As well, I'm not sure how many people thought this was a new item and were "fooled"? Not I nor anyone else I see here. I think Dfans was a bit foolish in posting it as front page news, I'll say that much. That part....was funny.
Aside from that, we just don't need more misinformation than there already is. People don't appreciate digging through liars to get some real news. If you can't understand that, I can't help ya any further.
People really need to chill about this. It really wasn't misinformation. It's not like seeing this red beam made you run out and farm for 48 hours straight neglecting your health and hygiene (though that would be indicative of other issues). It's not like it made you spend millions of gold erroneously. It made you change nothing - it only made you a little hopeful for a super rare item or the introduction of a new item class from Blizzard. That's it. Perhaps Blizzard will see this and consider adding something new to the game that they didn't before, even something more than "seasons specific" legendaries, considering the excitement it generated.
If someone made a troll about how, say, +% fire elemental damage on items was affecting all damage, and did it convincingly enough that you went and reforged all your shit to +fire damage, that would be a reason to be pissed off. Not a great example, but that would be real misinformation. This guy did nothing to harm you at all. Take a step back and reconsider what is worth being upset about. This is not one of those things.
