based on what we have currently?

deep freeze removed
invisibility removed
talent trees where we will pick one talent 99% of the time in every single situation
ice block as a talent LOL
cone of cold made frost only - arcane's only snare is slow and fire has no snares
blazing speed merged with cauterize, shares a tier with ice block so not like its a choice anyway hehe

do you want more or will that do for now?

Wow mages might actually be glass cannons instead of Gods. What terrible ideas blizz.

So you wouldent be pissed or worried if they removed... heroic leap or charge from warriors? or whatever your favorite class is.

Because its cool, it MIGHT be fixed via artifacts.. it might.
Thanks for pointing this out. Indeed, I was worried sick in the WoD preview when my whole kit got scrapped.
Since Cata Arms lost - quoting on a stance by stance basis - Heroic Strike, Piercing Howl, Overpower, Shield Bash, Shield Slam, Shield Block, Disarm, Demoralizing Shout, Sunder Armor, Thunder Clap as a debuff, got a +15 seconds on Spell Reflection, lost Charge Stun and Intercept because Heroic Leap and Throwdown were supposedly what I was to like and needed to use.

And I'm not even mentioning Blood Frenzy, Improved Hamstring, the old and proper Second Wind, the fact that Shattering Throw is now a glyph.

The class is still top notch, and it's at its lowest fun wise, for me. At best I find some silly enjoyment out of my two damaging buttons, especially when I try things that in Wrath would have pulled me ahead but now all they do is making me lose time at best.

Artifacts wouldn't fix jackshit, the class has to be scrapped at this point and was on the point of being so, we went into the first day of WoD with holes inside our core abilities because the devs themselves didn't know what to put in there since we had no buttons to push at all.

So that's the piece I wanted to share: as of now, worrying is useless because the current state leaves much to be desired regardless.
Want to cause an outcry? Wait for the first betas. Because everything that gets in there after its first half is what we will get.

It's something the Warrior community already experienced. And trust me that I feel the Rogues' concern on the whole skillcap/ skill usage/ theme of the class argument.

Scum binding shot and Shadowfury are worse.
Hoj and Deep are on the same tier. Being dispellable doesn't mean shit when it's put on the dispellers 9/10 times.

People in general have always been mad when warrior gets something thats actually good.

I think you should take into account that designers fuck up sometimes

Look at what happened to WoDs solo content. In MoP, people complained A LOT about dailies being 'mandatory' because they had meaningful rewards for PvE - actually usable gear for raiding. People complained that it sucks that you had to do a shitton of dailies when all you really wanna do is raid. So in WoD, they made an effort to make all gear for raiding come from raiding - there's virtually nothing useful you can get from solo or 5 man content (up until recent). They even made an entirely separate loot table for LFR without tier sets, so as to not force raiders into LFR. As a result, nobody ever bothered with the solo/5man content (but complained tons about 'being bored in garrison' ofc). Mythic dungeons and draenor flying requirements are actually bandaid fixes to exactly this problem. They did exactly what the community wanted, it just turned out to be a pretty bad design. It's easy to talk shit about it now, but back then, amidst all the whining about "omfg i hate dailies", these things actually sounded like good ideas.

Regarding PvP. The whole idea of buttons having more impact sounded good on paper. What they wanted to fix is classes having like 80+ hotkeys and a clusterfuck of smaller, barely visible cooldowns, with a ton of various 'micro' plays which are only visible on the UI and can only be interpreted properly by people who are familiar with the gameplay and specifics of all the specs (read: nerds). WoW PvP being unnecessarily too complicated and virtually impossible to spectate were common complaints, "there's just way too much shit going on" is basically a quote. The whole notion of cooldowns being more meaningful (and more visible) and there being less clutter sounded great at the time. Even the idea of no dispel RNG sounded great. It just turned out that everyone was wrong.

Also, design and implementation are separate processes. It's very well possible that Holinka has a ton of stuff ready, but it just never gets actual development and testing time. There's only so much you can do to "push good design" - if it never gets implemented, you're fucked. If it's big system changes, they most likely simply get postponed until the expansion, cuz that's how WoW dev cycle works. And there's indeed nothing a single designer can do about that.

10-15k people that get boosted in pvp every season are a real problem on 10 milion playerbase potential

Get a clue please

Uhh the vast majority of the wow population pve's/does things other than arenas or pvp in general so defending boosting on the basis that millions of people play the game is fallacious. Arenamate shows that each region currently has just over 100k characters with a 3v3 rating of 1k or above. People who enjoy arenas typically have alts they que on as well so the amount of active arena players in each region is probably less than 100k. All of a sudden the "10-15k boosted people" is quite a significant portion of the arena population if you actually use your brain and put everything into perspective.

Posted Nicholaes92 on 27 September 2015 - 04:18 PM

If anyone on this site makes fun of anyone for enjoying this game, whether it's frustrating or not, is a delusional douche bag.  Because it's either you are still playing this game you obviously enjoy it but wanna sound edgy and cool by calling it shit.  Or you don't play and you still lurk the forums dedicated to a game you don't play anymore which is more pathetic than actually enjoying the game in the first place.

This game needs

1) Rating decay ( after 3 weeks of not playing, your char drops 15 points per reset or something )

2) Only 1 character of the same class eligible for end of season rewards. A dude has a, let's say, DK on 3k rating, DK on 2.9k and a DK on 2.7k, his highest rated DK gets the seasonal award, his other two DKs don't get anything.

End of story really. In fact, gonna tweet this to Holinka.

do you even use your brain? how is boosting bad for the game? this is the only reason why you are no sitting in 40minutes ques everytime you are quin at decently high mmr.

the only reason why there's 40min queue in the first place is because the game is shit and noone is playing it anymore, "a quick fix" that ruins the game in the long run is a terrible idea to promote. boosting is very bad for the game.
