I don't know why everyone on aj is such a fucking Debby downer. Seriously, yes they have been fucking up hardcore lately and you could assume that they will possibly keep fucking it up. But, if you aren't going to give them at least some credit and have some faith that they could fix it with the new talent tree for pvp then you are just a cynical nerd.
They finally made a system that they can balance pvp and pve separately. Do you understand how big of a deal that is? I will confidently say that the reasons disc priests were such shit this expansion was solely because of them having to balance for pvp and pve. They had to balance almost every fight in pve AROUND how good discs were. So if they made them and stronger in pvp then everyone would just bring all discs in pve.
They have finally after 11 years made it so pvp and pve can be balanced separately. No, I'm not saying that pvp is going to be 100% fixed, but with this new tool they have they have the potential to make it better.
Tl;dr, quit being cynical dweebs with your "never been more unhyped" shit. If you are that pessimistic then stop fucking playing.
Edit: and what are you talking about "until they address the class homogenization" shit? They straight up said in the steam that this expansion they are working towards less class homogenization and making every class unique, I could be wrong but I'm sure that's what they said word for word. Then they even showed show unique spells for each class like the disc priests abolish magic and the reinstatement of necrotic strike.
if you want to call it pessimistic because im not being a seven year old with stars in my eyes listening to blizzard promise the world then so be it
if i wasnt so lazy i could literally bring an endless amount of quotes about the hype of wod and how wod was going to be THE pvp expansion which it worked enough for me to come back after not playing for 2 expansions just to find out it was just as shit if not worse
pretending like blizzard is somehow true to their word always and acting as if a seperate talent system is going to be the fix of pvp is just choosing to be blinded by the fact of a new expansion and not sitting down and realizing that they do this shit every single expansion
a new talent system for pvp is a start yes, but that does not mean in any sort of degree that is going to be the fix of pvp, this isn't some brand new idea that they are just now going to be testing out to seperate pvp spells to pve, this is something theyve had access to and choose not to put that much use to for this current season or last, they literally choose not to do such changes for whatever reason that may be, and this is assuming that it is even implemented, do i need to remind you of the amount of pvp additions they promised yet when the time came pretended like they never even said that?
and guess what, they had an endless amount of feedback from the few pvp players that were on beta and anyone that was participating in wod beta can attest to that, yet zero changes were made, yet somehow after having a history of almost NEVER listening to feedback and doing the same shit theyre doing now with empty promises people are supposed to start screaming from the top of their lungs wow pvp is fixed when all they did was show a few spell icons and a talent tree that they never even touched on in the stream other than that its going to be pvp specific? lol
just because people like me aren't stroking blizzard's dick because of their talk doesnt mean its being negative
a child who is promised that they are going on a cruise every year by their parents will get excited after the first few times, after those times where they realize later on that they actually aren't they start to take said promises from parents with a grain of salt, is it cool of the thought of it or the idea of it? certainly, but you are just choosing to be a fool if you still after the 5000th time being promised said cruise to be just as excited as the first time
it just blows my mind how people still get this over excited over an expansion that was shown on a powerpoint presentation and think this is the second coming of jesus christ
edit; and i just remembered their reasoning for not doing more changes that change spells for pvp to pve, it'd be "too confusing" for the community, so they quite obviously have decided it won't be "too confusing" yet they continue not to do specific pvp changes on spells in the current? ya that sure looks promising tbh
im excited for the changes that they preached if they go through with it, but im not going to be a dumbass like other people claiming wow is going to be fixed and brought back to life until i see some actual testing of it on beta and show they actually intend on working more on things in a pvp perspective, as well as the class homeo, which once again, has strictly been all talk they didn't show any toolkits of the classes and how they are going to start separating them (rightfully so since this is the first they started talking of the expansion, which gives even more reason to not hold on to their every word like an idiot)
