anyone that still plays this game has the self respect of a battered housewife so don't expect them to treat you with anything but the abuse that they've been treated with. blizzard is ABUSING its fucking WoW subscribers at this point and yet the people still paying for this terrible game (wow token or otherwise) sit here and turn the other cheek and nervously smile. get up off your fucking knees and stop funding this garbage you cheap whores
everybody is a whore, just some of us have some dignity
i dont entirely understand the point of playing a bc server. i imagine you guys are just gonna arena and each calss
had like 5 buttons they push frequently back then. if you want to play with 5 buttons why not just play legion.
im not even sure one could argue that the game is more skillful in bc.
vanilla i can understand because arena wasnt a thing but is there another reason to play a bc server? the pve sure in the fuck wasnt that great
this post isnt meant to start a flame war or anything im just curious on your guys reasoning
the core mechanics of classes make sense and actually work, whereas they don't on live (and haven't since cata, but mainly post cata)
every class doesn't have 5 instant cast short defensive cds to use to get out of trouble, every class doesn't have self healing, every class doesn't have a gap closer, every class doesn't have 3 different cc breaks alongside their 5 different instant ccs. a single dps can kill a healer by himself, or the healer is capable of killing the dps. there were a lot of imbalances back then, but they didn't matter as much because the way the game played out was fun and made sense
people talk a lot about ability pruning these days which is an issue, but to me it's not the main issue that exists. it's the entire philosophy behind how classes are meant to interact with each other and the gameplay in general. there was an actual structure behind class roles previously, and it's literally missing now
i don't think tbc arena was particularly skillful, it just actually made sense and the way classes interacted with each other was fun. arena now isn't skillful and it sure as fuck doesn't make sense or is fun
so i guess that's why i want to play bc again, because i like playing wow the way it was designed to be played by its original creators instead of by the people who work on the game now who have a shitty philosophy towards how it's supposed to work
i've grown up playing this game and i've massively enjoyed it through multiple iterations of it so i'm not afraid of change or progression, but they've completely lost sight of what made the game popular in the first place and continue to move away from that direction
You do realize that taking jabs like this at core mechanics of classes is what brought us to WoD, where dueling is all but alive, solo plays in arena barely exist anymore, etc?
The simpler classes become to play, and the more limited they are in what they can do, the more this game turns to shit.
I'd say what's pathetic here is you and your shitty opinion. Nerfing casters' core mechanics and buffing melee mobility/interrupts/CC is what got us to MoP/WoD levels of retardation, and then the power creep starts to happen where everyone starts getting everything.
You people whine that the current game is a game of rock paper scissors where wins are determined by comps in question, well this will only get further encouraged by having core mechanics nerfed like this. Make no mistake, I don't give a shit about Mages, but how does that saying go, the one about your mentality?
"They came for the Jews, but I wasn't a Jew, so I didn't care.
They came for Muslims, but I wasn't a Muslim, so I didn't care.
They came for Buddhists, but I wasn't a Buddhist, so I didn't care.
They came for Christians, but I wasn't a Christian, so I didn't care.
Then they came for me, but there was nobody left to help me."
Yeah, Mages are OP for the majority of WoD. Warlocks were OP for most of MoP. Your Fear got further raped, it started breaking on nothing, you lost a CC talent row, you lost curses, God knows what fucking else.
You might be OP for a while, they nerf you, you're still decentish, but after a while you're not. At that time, they will NEVER revert core mechanics nerfs, even the ones which make no sense ( like the deep change ). Are you following me, or are you too dense?
Honestly, there is arguably no way of proving who "the best" is of a certain class, as everyone has their own opinion and view the game from their point of view.
- Good knowledge of his class.
- Open to discuss between arenas of real life or any no-WoW theme.
- Do not rage after a lose, being grumpy is allowed.
- I met him/her in real life.
- I appreciate him/her in real life. (Really important, people can be different in real life, good or bad)
- Not arrogant, not condescending with other players.
- Do not have a mage in his character list (The previous point is highly bound to this one). Unless it's his very first character.
- Appreciate dirty jokes, comments, or inappropriate ones like i usually do.
I only met one guy with all this points and we became real life friends. Sad for me he stops playing mid mop.
(It's not you Volkovitch, you have a mage too. Fire, ungeared, and unplayed but mage anyway. Grmbl)

just the fact u abuse using pve gear even on ladder is making u look like the most discusting dogshit player in this game dont really care about ur dps or if ur actually good or not or what ever but just have some confidence que ladder like others with out abusing ur pve skillful mythic socketed gear
you're playing an MMO you shitfuck moron
the whole point of MMOs is if you put in more effort/time to get something compared to other people, you get to use it
removing pve gear from arena was the biggest retarded decision Blizz has ever made ( all they needed to do was nerf legendaries/trinkets on a case by case basis, I see no reason why bracers/belts etc from pve shouldn't be usable )
wallirik is one of people I actually don't think bad about in this shitty community, so you taking the shit on him is fucking hilarious
