When Blizzard reported that Titan wasn't going the way the wanted, they said they would put some people back to help "fix" WoW.
Apparently they read AJ, so do you guys think Tigole aka Jeff Kaplan should come back on to team?
He was the person that basically made Vanilla and Burning Crusade what they were. He was take off mid-wotlk, (when they did ToC and LFD...) so this is also when people would say the game started going down-hill. ToC was just a giant arena and had 4 lockouts and LFD slowly killed server interaction and made heroics even more faceroll.
Blizzard was into making games that they themselves wanted to play.
For example, there was the hybrid tax which made each class feel unique. If you were a pally, you were more focused on defensive/healing than dps. If you were a shammy you were more offensive. Now it's all one mesh.
Things like the "new and improved" talent system do offer more choice. However, that choice is horrible because it's Self-healing and MORE INSTANT CC. Everyone has the same stuns, heals, fears, silences, blah blah blah. Why do rogues have a heal? I never understood which developer thought that would be cool.
if you go to 9:00
He says clearly, AND OF COURSE WE WANT ROGUES TO BE OUR TOP MELEE DPS
I remember watching all his interviews before too during vanilla/BC. He was apart of making a game people were trying to quit cause it was too good; not a game you want to try to play.
