there's actually an easy solution if you really don't like the game

I think Holinka is doing a great job. This is just the first season of WoD, and I think s16 is infinitely better than s5, s9 and s12. You can see Blizzard is doing a better job of making changes earlier on to tweak PvP. Hotfixes are being rolled out multiple times per week. What you have to remember is that WoW is a PvE game, and most of the damage/healing numbers will be based on PvE performance, which Holinka doesn't have control of. As previous posters have pointed out, PvP balancing really can't reach its full potential until they separate the functionality of abilities in PvP and PvE.

I'm pretty sure I'd be able to turn WoW PvP into something playable again, if given the chance. I'd do it for free even. I've witnessed every single xpack and was a Glad at least once in every xpack, and I have a pretty good idea how the game should work, from a non biased point of view.

There are plenty of players like me, now imagine one of those players was asked what to do and they actually listened.

Nah, better keep clueless people on payroll.

( btw, the damage changes to healers are pve related, too )
I actually like most of your posts. I forget, did you dislike the changes to the dispel system - both the cooldowns and making it based on role rather than class? I think it was one of the worst changes made to the game, homogenization and all that.

My point was arena went downhill when Ghostcrawler was still in charge, but I agree with you Blizzard can do a better job with PvP, even with keeping in mind that WoW is a PvE dominated game.

Holinka wasn't there for the development of MoP and its first season was perhaps the worst season ever. MoP actually improved throughout, even if it still wasn't very good by the end. Hard to turn lead into gold, you know. Personally I think WoW PvP really began its downward slope in Cata.

Posted Malenky on 24 January 2015 - 01:20 PM

These changes were made so you could level as healer, or at least healers could do open world pve stuff. I don't think pvp has anything to do with it and Holinka has no real say in class changes.

Healer homogenization, the attempt to make every healer good at everything and part of the reason why healers are so extremely unbalanced right now. When every healer can do everything and have nothing unique left, why would you settle for any other healer than the one with the highest numbers?

The damage buffs for healers are another step towards Holinka's perfect homogenized world fantasy. This gets proven by the fact that the traditionally offensive healer, in times past counting as a 3rd dps, not being included in the buffs. Apparently Priests (And Monks) already do enough damage and the other healers need to be brought up to their level, because unequallity cannot exist in Holinka's mind. This communism of WoW doesn't work just like it doesn't in the real world. Healers (and dps) need to have unique aspects and mechanics which would make you want them for certain comps even if they put out less numbers, or different numbers than an other healer.

Not every healer needs an interupt, not every healer needs CC, not every healer needs an auramastery, not every healer needs a freedom, not every healer needs a blink, not every healer needs dispel magic, not every healer needs to do damage, not every healer needs an instant "whoop I'm safe" ability.

We need to start making healers more unique, rather then homogenize them even further. I don't even know how Blizzard comes up with this. I have never seen an Rshaman or Hpaladin complaining about not doing as much damage as a Disc. Healers should compliment setups and be taken for synergenization, even if that means they are limited to a few comps to be viable. If not, we get the current situation were one healer (rdruid) dominates every single comp because he has everything other healers have + higher numbers. Just like communism in real life doesn't lead to prosperity for all but only for a few elite, in Wow it doesn't lead to all healers being viable, but rather all but one or two being excluded from the game as a whole.

#4368632 PVE gear nerfs

Posted Wallirik on 23 January 2015 - 03:24 PM

I really don't know why you're complaining about pve trinkets. It's a great burst increase, at the cost of huge survivability loss.
I stopped using my pve trinkets about a month ago, waaaayy too squishy man, not worth it.

It might be worth it for some comps, but I really rather face some super aids comp that does a lot of dmg, and takes a lot of dmg, rather than facing a super aids comp that does a lot of dmg and CANNOT DIE.

And well, I think it's fun when everyone isn't running around in the exact same gear (different off-pieces with more optimal stats, i seriously get cancer looking at all the rings and bracers, all of them has either crit or multistrike)

I'm guessing it's about to get changed because the US circlejerk called holinka's personal line and bitched until he gave in.

#4367144 Have some fun why not ?

Posted Shock1911 on 21 January 2015 - 11:09 PM

Just posting this because many doesn't seem to be using it enough , right now as we know items scale to 590 in 90-99 BGs & Skirmishes . Retarded old school items scale too and their proc scales too.

I am talking about blues / epics with retarded procs like

Dark Iron Pulverizer   Chance on hit: Stuns target for 8 sec.  low proc

Dazzling Longsword Chance on hit: Decrease the armor of the target by 952 for 30 sec.  While affected, the target cannot stealth or turn invisible. procs alot

Bloodrazor  Chance on hit: Wounds the target causing them to bleed for 1000 damage over 30 sec. procs alot

Those are the ones i found in front of me , I am sure i am forgetting a lot more retarded  items . Feel free to post yours. It is super fun leveling with in bgs / skirmishes with items like those.


Malown's Slam  Chance on hit: Knocks target silly for 2 sec and increases Strength by 50 for 30 sec.  
( No DR procs ALOT )

Earthshaker Chance on hit: Knocks down all nearby enemies for 3 sec.   ( No DR procs ALOT  but i haven't tested this one )

Pendulum of Doom  Chance on hit: Delivers a fatal wound for xx damage.   ( Speed 3.90 Slowest weapon in the game i believe )

Ravager  Chance on hit: You attack all nearby enemies for 9 sec causing weapon damage plus an additional x every 3 sec.  ( 2x these and you have bladestorm 24/7 on fury , the item is from old SM removed from the game atm )

#4364995 Having a discussion with a friend about when 3.0 ret pallies became OP

The patch was after season ended, but pretty sure it allowed random rets to get 2200 shoulders etc even though titles were done.

#4348488 Are most healers rerolling Rdruids? o_O

Posted Deeklol on 11 January 2015 - 01:03 PM

Theres always that one healer above all the others every season. Once rdruid gets nerfed, theres gonna be threads about monks and their op 50 sec cocoons. Really wish changes and fixes would come sooner and not every 2 months but it is a pve game afterall so cant complain xD
