Why do you people say this shit? God damn you damn pessimists. They have so much opportunity with this new talent system, that saying shit like this makes me feel like you don't want to play this game at all.
Why can't this happen? And with a real reason and not some circle jerk "lelblizzard" answer
To be fair, "lelblizzard" is just the short version of the real answer imo... While I still kind of hope for the game to become good again, it's unrealistic... And the worst thing is, I understand Blizzard from a company point of view.
You have to think about it, no matter how people talk about everyone being glad or r1 by now, the pvp "community" (still can't bring myself to call this a community, sorry guys), and more-so the group of high average, good and top players, is literally THE smallest minority that exists in the game... Fuck, there are propably more people having cybersex in Goldshire than there are good pvp players...
Now think about it, why the fuck would Blizzard care about them? You have to see how "big" the changes we want to see really are... I'm just throwing random numbers in now, no idea if those are near reality, but you'll get the point:
Say 75% of the playerbase are dragonslayers, 20% pvp players, 5% roleplayers, or whatever...
- RPers can jack off to anything, because let's be honest, the wow lore is still sick... as long as they pull the same strings as they always did, those guys won't riot...
- Assuming everyone with a glad title is a good player (which is not the case, but let's simplify it), that means roughly 0,5% OF THOSE 20% pvp players are actually good. + let's give it another 0,2% for those that never cared about titles but would have the option to get them, should they choose to.
Now think about it... 0,7% of 20% of everyone playing the game, wants some changes... why the FUCK would anyone care? They make basically no money of the top wow players apart from the one that comes along with promotion from their names. The average player doesn't care AS MUCH about class balance as top players do, because it often doesn't affect them as much (not playing for money, etc.). The Dragonslayers don't give too much of a fuck either, because in PvE the comparison of one player to another is more of a show-off, because the common goal is to do as much damage TOGETHER to kill a boss.
And the roleplayers are happy because belfs got a new model.
From a company pov, purely financial, blizzard is doing fine. They make the most money off casuals and raiders, so they build the game around them.
