Admittedly I'm a little bored at work, and also a little tired. But something needs to be said, for those aren't already on the same page.

This thought has grilled me, and is the real reason i think anyone ever quits wow, pvpers anyways.
We are part of a formula, we have been trained to accept a terrible system and it seems were all entirely oblivious to it.
This thread is probably completely pointless as we all must be aware of this, but no one seems to talk about it anymore, we complain about specific stuff sure, but in general we just sit back and take it, its just the way it is and even though it is responsible for every other issue, we just close our eyes to it.

Every change, every new addition, every removal and tweek, its all just bullshit. It's what we wait for, to keep us coming back, to fix the new imbalance they pointlessly put into the game, so that hey it might be balanced next patch, and again, and again, and again, over and over and over. You could argue pve is responsible for this, but its not, its simlpy an excuse for blizzard to continue to be what we mistake as laziness. It's not laziness, ladies and gentlemen, its their fucking business model.

We get bored of one extremely long season, we complain endlessly about specific things over and over, a new patch here, and nerf there, and a new imbalance here. Over and over again. Sounds like im accusing blizzard of some giant conspiracy, but quite honestly at this point its pretty clear how this hamster wheel functions.

They make "mistakes", then say "oops! we didn't intend for this terrible system to not work as intended", then they reel us back in with the off chance they might fix it at some point down the road - chances are after another $15 from all of us is again safely in their pockets. It is genuinely insane.

As every season mellows out and takes for ever to finish we all just zombify and become use to it, we melt away brain cells endlessly doing the same thing accomplishing almost nothing, i mean in the end were suppose to be having fun, and dont get me wrong i do have fun when i arena with cool people, but honestly how can one sit back and even consider that its possible to have fun doing the same broken imbalnced garbage for 7 months in a row.

The thing that gets me the most, is when they finally bring in a new season, we all battled away for our titles and our gear and wait so patiently to get the next best shit, then its finally available! We all gear up like crack-fiends addicted to bigger numbers. We all hit pretty hard as the season starts and people complain, then they just buff reseilence and health pools, so even though were doing more damage and everyones all excited for this refreshing change, NOTHING HAS CHANGED lol.

Its depressing, this thread is depressing, the state of this game is depressing, but whats more depressing than anything is seeing all these quality people, all you guys, slave away as you get gouged by blizzard over and over again.

Were just part of a vicious cycle, a business model, an endlessly perpetuating and cleverly designed money making machine. Blizzard really doesn't give a shit what you say or complain about - they have it all planned out, and you'd be a fool to think otherwise.

Sad face.

Appealing but I have infinitely more faith in people's stupidity than their desire to pull the wool over my eyes. Or at least I think they're much more capable of the former.

You atleast try to see the good in things, your a prime example of a quality person getting gouged.

It's been obvious to me since day one that they do it on purpose.  Though I don't think they're trying to make money off it, I think they're just doing it to troll the shit out of everybody.  Like when they removed mace stun and then put in TNT stun.  Or when somebody writes out a long detailed post about class issues and a blue locks the thread for some ridiculous reason or makes a shitty joke comment that isn't relevant in any way just to show us that they're there and they're aware of the issues but they just don't give a shit.  Or when they leave FoK interrupt in the game for ages because "we were waiting for people to figure out a way to overcome it".  They probably just got picked on in high school for being nerds and now they're trying to take it out on us.

Official Blizzard Quote:

Even the amount that PVP can alter the PVE game in WoW is unacceptable to us.  Whenever we run into a case of 'this would be really awesome for PVE' but then the PVP guy says 'that kind of screws us in PVP' the answer is always 'SHUT UP PVP GUY, it's awesome in PVE so that's what we're doing!'

This is cute - it's like arena junkies is growing up a bit? Very, very cute.

By the way, if the level of control others exert on your real life is similar to the level of control blizzard exerts on you via wow, I suggest reconsidering whatever it is that you're doing unless you're just a kid still or something.

Try to sound high and mighty all you want, but some people don't have better alternatives to their crappy living situations (though some people do and just don't know how to change it).

P.S. I agree it's better to take control of your life and not be a slave to a machine, I'm currently my own boss and no one tells me what to do, but I also know that not everyone has the opportunity to be their own boss because the world we live in is unfair.

If you post on this site that means you have a computer and an internet connection, congratulations you are better off than 75% of the world.
