You can have as much fun playing Paladin as you want and MoP can be your favorite expansion, but that doesn't mean I want you as a lead game designer because you completely lack the understanding of what used to make this game good at its highest points, and looking at sub numbers most people seem to agree with me.
You could remove all abilities leaving only 3 short cd abilities and 1 long cd ability for each class moba style and there would still be people left to find that fun or the best expansion ever, I wouldn't even play the game anymore at that point let alone want them in charge of game design.
People can find all kind of things fun or good, but that doesn't mean that everything they find fun is good game design.
You... you are not serious right?
I just tell my opinion about the game, and just because i don't agree with "the mass" and you, i want to be a "game designer"? What the fuck was your mental process to assimilate an opinion to this? ._.
And, no, i don't like pruning too, i want more customization (Reforging :'().
I don't play/stop just because other people play or stop. I just play for me and for nobody else.
Who are you to judge this? So you're not having fun so people who are not like you are dumb? Have you been finished with poop when you were born to be like that? Probably because i never say this.
(My favorite xpac was MoP. For the refreshing lore, the beautiful areas, the people i played with, the pet battles and when hpal had a good gameplay. The WoD one stay more enjoyable than bc cata or wotlk.)
Fun is something you can't judge. But we are on arena junkies so... like the PvP forum without garbage heh.
They're pretty good as Destro on a lot of fights, and there's a few fights where Affli shines.
I guess they want to make Affli shine everywhere and make other locks than Maldiva play Affli on them, lol.
TL;DR - I don't know what's the point of these buffs. Good Warlocks can easily top 5 on most fights. The only fix for Affli they should've done is fixed the Soul Shard mechanic, made Soul Shards regenerate inside combat, that's all that was needed for Affli.
