Hey y'all, been a while since i posted in here!


I've been having a lot of spare time lately, that I seem to be just wasting on literally nothing, so why not waste it on something productive, like WoW, instead?

The game seems rather unbalanced, that much I can gather, but how is it compared to for example beginning of S5 and so on? I think Blizzard did a quite good job of making WotLK, if not balanced, then atleast very enjoyable and worth playing. - so I'm not sure rather big imbalances would hold me back that much.


But, more importantly perhaps, how is the community? What I really loved back in the end-BC and WotLK days was the community. There were 1-3 big, awesome battlegroups in which one or two servers were the most popular, and almost every streamer streamed on the same platoform - Xfire. Not to forget AJ here, which was cool back in the day. I haven't visited this site for like a year, but I really, really hate the new layout and all the new Curse shizamagam - bring back the old style!
I've checked around a few streams, and now it seems like everybody's streaming on differnet platforms - Xfire, twitch, justin.tv and so on. This seems like it would hurt the community-spirit quite a bit, forcing people to jump around between a lot of different pages?

And as for realms/battlegroups, is there still one BG/server that's the place to be, like SS-Cyclone for example was?




Thank you, Gracle.

It's really not imbalanced that much right now, I'd say this is one of the most balanced seasons so far. However the reason why so many people find this game so boring is you physically cannot get to the rank 1 ratings or even past 2600 anymore due to blizzard changing the way MMR works a few weeks into the season, they made it so when you add a new person to your team you lose 200 mmr which caused everyone's mmr to deflate (even people who didn't have people join their team because if they're 2800 mmr then they vs 2700 players but they added someone to their team their mmr is only ~2500 then if the 2800 team loses their mmr gets ruined and it just keeps going as a domino effect). So it's really not fun when you cannot get to rank 1 in 3s (in 5s it's still possible)

They also made it so there's cross BG ques which allow you to que into people that aren't on your BG so there really isn't a need for everyone to be on the same battlegroup anymore
twitch.tv/Raystigz stream maybe someday i'll start using it again

What Mirion said,overall pvp is in a good state but there are few things that need/must be tweaked ;/,about the streaming platform its twitch.tv these days :P and why not is tons times better than xfire plus streamers can make some $$ if they get a partnership,last but not least the community seems very good at whining,flaming each other and stuff like that..^ ^

Simple answer; no.

Slightly less simple answer; Balance is great, the ladders are broken, the community as a collective is getting smaller but nicer

I think you guys need to realize that shamans are not the problem, and are probably less powerful than you think.

You're also acting like mages are the most retarded thing this game has ever seen, have you forgotten KFC LSD Frost DKs in s9? Warrior + Smourne in s8? ATC, beastcleave, or mls in s7. Disc Rogue (early in s6). Hunters DKs Paladins (Holy and ret were retarded) arcane mages.
twitch.tv/Raystigz stream maybe someday i'll start using it again

Doesnt justify the fact that mage mastery is broken

That's what I mean aswell though. I thought all those seasons were fucking amazing, and I almost exclusively played WLD, which was one of the harder comps at the time. Sure, there were some imbalances here and there and it was fucking lame getting countercomped quite often, but that's what kept it fun, and it was so much fun beating a countercomp cuz they were only at that rating due to their comp and not their skill. Most the time if you lost to those joker comps/classes it's cuz you sucked anyways.
People really need to chill I think and realize, that no game that consists of so different classes and so many different options of customization will never, EVER, be totally balanced - but that's what, partly, makes it fun to play.
