Thanks for actually putting together a thoughtful response.
Do you simply think the poor game designs have created enough of an uproar that our entire community continues to play out of pure hatred for balance? Are we all psychologically impaired?
The examples we are setting for the up and coming PvPrs is awful. Would you pick up the game and say" hey, these guys make things sound fun. I'm going to learn how to pvp."
people don't play because of their hate but we can argue whether we actually are impaired since it is piss easy to find people in the pvp community to bash the game and find things to complain about but still nobody quits.
People tell each other that they would love to quit WoW for another game if there was any good alternative but the sad truth is nobody actually bothers trying any other game and just sticks to playing WoW simply because they are used to it.
MMORPGs are in a completely different kind of market. Usually consumers stop paying for stuff they don't like and buy from companies who make items they like. That way always the best product will have the best sales. WoW is different since it involves an addiction element. Even if right now, a MMORPG came out that was better than WoW, it wouldn't "kill" WoW simply because WoW players are too much into this game. Literally nobody here will agree that they are addicted and not many are addicted in a common way but everyone is too used to playing the character they have played for years that they start complaining the second they log on any other MMORPG.
It's a bit funny that players actually laugh at other MMORPGs and call them WoW clones but the sad fact is, unless another MMORPG is a clonse, NOBODY will play it.Why is that so?
Because WoW players in general are too stupid to adapt. Back then in TBC you had to go queue in a city if you wanted BG/Arena but now you can queue anywhere. Let's say there is a new MMORPG where you had to run to the city every single time you wanted to go BG or if one of your team has to sit there queuing at NPC. What would people do? They would Alt+F4 and go cry right here that X game is trash because you can't queue anywhere and add a typical "fuck that" to their post.
People always assume that WoW invented the whole genre but nobody seems to know that the reason WoW became the MMORPG king is only that they copied from every single MMORPG that existed back then and merged all good ideas together. This together with the fact that it was a Warcraft game made it easy for them to rule the market. Back then Blizzard was gold. WC3, D2 and SC were the most popular games around and even I spent many hours playing WC3 online that was filled with active players. Then WoW came out and all Blizzard players rushed to play it, even if they never played any MMORPG before. I still remember many people in the clan I was in quitting just to play WoW. None of them ever played Everquest or other MMORPGs which is why nobody complained about WoW being a copy but now where everyone plays this game people all gladly call all other games cheap copies.
Even though the only way to really take the market from WoW is to copy it and improve upon it. This together with hype would beat WoW but even then fanboys, which is nearly every WoW player, would run around flaming the other game and this is why we all still play WoW and this is why there are no better MMORPGs. Not because it is so hard to beat this game, nor are all the companies too shit. It's only because their marketing departments know that WoW players will never give any other game a try, no matter how good it is. On a side note, don't bother arguing with this telling me that you are 'so' different and would gladly switch since even if the whole AJ community would switch MMORPG, it'd still not be enough. We need to get the dumb playerbase to switch too, which is the hardest task.
And no nobody here is setting a good example for PvPers. The only time anyone will look up to you is when you do something that he can't. There needs to be something in the game that makes other people say "Wow thats impressive! Tips? " but nobody these days will do that since the game is so faceroll right now and will always be from now on. Every time people see a rogue R1 player they go and flame him for playing "op comp" RMP. Every time people see a warrior R1 they will flame him for facerolling here and there. High rated players were way more rare in TBC which is why it was different then but it all changed and it won't come back. That's just ignoring that every 'newbie' who takes a look at AJ or anything PvP would be scared off since it's all about insulting each other, complaining and whining or having YT channels where you put the dumbest shit there is, just to entertain people, instead of getting subs because of how good you are.
Blazin aka the most retarded guy in eu is trying to come at me when i got r1 in 3s s10 with 95% as sp rogue druid not to mention that we were 1 out of the 2-3 only legit teams in eu who played up after the mmr fix when he got carried in s9 to r1 in 5s and not to mention how he migrated to charge this bg for r1 as tripple dps and ended up with negative winratio
DayZ (some ArmA II as well)
Crysis Warhead & War
Diablo 3 (not very often though)
Going to play/finish:
Curious about what happens to S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2
Some games like TESV: Skyrim, Fallout 3/New Vegas, Starcraft 2, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: SoC & CoP and any of my Total War games I like to reinstall and replay sporadically for maybe a month. Gives me back some of the atmosphere of exploring a new, great game.
Title says it all. Bailamos will make history forming an all female + Bailamos top 1 RBG leader team. Preferably girls that can go on cam during the livestream. I really need female mage, dk, boomkin. Healers are full.
Also: <Girls Should Be Healers> looking for masculine, take charge men and submissive, quiet women. (Women please have 525 tailoring/cooking)
We know this is a concern and we have some things in mind for helping in this regard. First, we’re limiting the use of flying mounts within Mists of Pandaria to level 90. Second, with so many players taking part in the quest hubs, we think we’ll see a lot more PvP happening out in the world. After all, you have to land sometime. If that’s not enough though, we have an item that we’re adding to the game that players will be able to use from the ground that makes it possible to dismount a flying enemy player (within a reasonable range and PvP flagged). We’re still discussing the particulars of how this item will be available.
Yes, actually. Players will be able to see their opponent’s class and specialization before the match begins. They won’t be able to see the specific talent choices or glyphs being used, however. From there, it’s a bit like playing poker. You won’t know what exact abilities your opponent is using, but you’ll be able to modify your own talents in the staging area before the match starts to try to anticipate what they could be using.
