Blizzard tells us to provide constructive feedback, and then introduce changes like this where the only proper response is "You guys are f*cking retarded".

I realise there's a small possibility of blizz reps reading this thread, but it's expected of them to realise that if a certain place is dead, players don't like it. And they don't like it for a reason.

So instead of forcing players into doing what they don't like doing, they could ask US how to make it more fun, instead of putting a gun to our head and being done with it.


#4425532 If Ghostcrawler came back as developer, would this game be better?

Posted Syia on 17 May 2015 - 09:37 AM

There are so many levels to what went wrong it would be impossible to blame one person. It would be impossible for one person to fix it too. Ghostcrawler was a part of pushing the game towards greater homogenization, lowering the price of entry to gated content, and creating hard-mode vs casual-mode content.

At a glance, all of these things were initially pretty well received as evidenced by subscriber counts. Many of the traditional RPG mechanics in Vanilla/Burning Crusade sucked. Some classes were legitimately low standing citizens (not just specializations) and a lot of content wasn't being consumed by the majority of level-capped players (not even considering the people who weren't level capped). Arenas were receiving a lot of love for being new and running through the MLG circuit.

However, these concepts that were initially good for the game got pushed too far. Content is too cyclical now. Casual versions of raids reduce the perceived value of "hardcore raiders". In Vanilla/TBC there was constant need to run older raids and scaling was tight enough that people a tier behind didn't feel like they were in a different stratosphere. Classes have become too homogenized; their once defining characteristics feel so bland now. What is wrong with having flavor abilities to put on your hot bar? Nothing.

World of Warcraft got tipped too far in favor of streamlining content and classes, while reducing the need for its social systems. A lot of what has changed in World of Warcraft over the years come from designers acquiescing to the desires of vocal players (not us, but the casual majority). Most of the time, what people think they want, is not what's good for the game.

Blizzard needed to put their foot down and maintain the foundations of what made their game so good. But the profit model worked so well, there's no way you would convince the company to stray away from the status quo. A game of this scale really needs an authoritarian to make design decisions for the sake of the game, not the company's bottom line.

Edit: I'm sure there are tons of qualified people working at Blizzard. I'm also sure there are people already working/have worked there that are capable of making good design decisions. Making meaningful decisions requires too much clout. E.g. A PvP designer is never going to triumph over PvE rules, but PvE designers can never completely ignore PvP either. It's a mess and needs strong leadership to go anywhere.

Welp Blizzard, you got me, you got me really good.

It was so awful of me using a bot to level my alts.

Wow, I cheated so hard, I can't believe I ruined everyone elses gameplay by leveling my own alts using a bot!!!!!

Its a good thing you are going after the real cheaters, and letting the people who wintrade, and ddos go free, they are obviously not worth your time.



Blizzard is dead, and WoW will be dead before the end of the year.

yeah uhm.. no. If you botted, no matter in what way, you deserved the ban imo.


#4418157 The State of the Game

Posted Capstone on 03 May 2015 - 04:00 PM

the illusion that the community can make this game better to the extent that it will resemble its former glory is taxing

i saw this post 7 years ago. i might have made it back then

eventually, after being drowned in the futility of optimism that constructive feedback will effect meaningful change, we all crash to the reality that you cannot do anything to make this game better. after your 902nd tweet to holinka or post on your class forums detailing the ways the class could be changed to be more rewarding to everyone playing it and interactive with others, you become desensitized to the obvious neglect of your positive ideas

communities better than ours have tried to improve their decaying interest when it was out of their control and watched it struggle due to neglect. ultimately, we all have the same revelation, which is that the fate of this game is not in our hands

this game was great when blizzard made it great, and lost steam when blizzard neglected it. we had a minimal effect on either. as a matter of fact, if you think the community is shit now, understand that most of the visible community is relatively mature. you should have seen it in vanilla when we were all 16 year old shitheads. it wasn't our attitude that made the game good

it's a great sentiment. i encourage everyone to go post your ideas in that thread. i don't think it'll have a significant long term positive impact, and if you have been playing this game as long as i have, neither do you

RIP. S15, my first gladiator season. I can only hope the future for this game can be as bright as I now see the past once was

and thats probably why you think it was the best season, not because it actually was, because you're  biased (no fault of your own).

#4414875 Holinka you failed this game

Posted Thasta on 25 April 2015 - 05:19 PM

I don't know why everyone blames Holinka for all of the problems or balance or whatever in PvP.. WoW is a PvE game, Holinka is a senior PvP designer, he probably has little say in how abilities are balanced. Until PvP is separated from PvE and redesigned so it can grow in its own direction,(which would take time, money and resources Blizzard seemingly doesn't want to spend) this is probably about as good as it's going to get. I think Holinka has done a very good job with what he's been given considering his input is probably very limited when it comes to the big picture of WoW.
