#4578942 Incoming legacy servers!

Posted Woundman on 26 April 2016 - 10:49 PM

Title is pretty misleading tbh. There is such a small chance blizzard is going to bring legacy servers back. Why? Undermines all their current hard work. They want everyone playing the same expansion. Splitting the community up playing different expansions isn't a good thing, especially with how dead WoW is right now.

People have been asking for legacy servers forever... Why is it such a big deal now? WoW is in a horrible state, that's why... I'm not gonna cross my fingers and hope for legacy servers, because honestly I don't care about them. I love WoW for it's progression and community. I'd rather Blizzard focus on improving the current WoW, especially if it's so difficult for Blizzard to run legacy servers like they said in the OP.

Here's what I would do:

Pick out a single aspect you want to improve on, let's say staying calm when you get focused, and queue up some skirms.  The ONLY thing you should be thinking about during these skirms is staying calm. That's it.  Once you feel more comfortable with that, you can pick out the next thing you want to improve on (maybe that could be recognizing enemy cooldowns being used) and repeat the same process.

For me, it really helps to single-out the aspect I want to improve on and focus only on it.  It can be very overwhelming trying to improve on multiple things at the same time.

I don't understand how there are people who actually get confused by this game. It isn't rocket science. If people are seriously that ignorant and easily confused by abilities then they shouldn't have been playing to begin with.

I'm by no means an average WoW player - 10x+ glad titles behind me and a history of raiding in a few top 50 guilds. Yet I was completely lost for the first week or two in WoW in regards to basic combat abilities ( kept using my staff to kill mobs instead of casting spells on mobs ), and I was lost for much longer on the basic concepts of what you have to do in an MMO ( for example, I thought having "of the Eagle" gear as a Warlock was the best in Vanilla ). Oh, and I also grinded to level 60 without doing quests at all in Vanilla, maybe the occasional dungeon when someone whispered me or I saw someone advertise in /1. Granted, I did come from a FPS background with not having played a single RPG game up until WoW, but still.. This game used to be fairly complex back in the day. Hell, get a new player a portal to some place and chances are he'll be lost as fuck for a while until he discovers he has a Hearthstone or something.


So no, getting into WoW wasn't/isn't easy. Don't knock it down, it was a fairly complex game both to start playing, and to start playing properly on the end game. However, simplifying the early game isn't so much of an issue tbh... The problem is that they started trivializing the endgame ( duh, as we all know ). Actually, even an awful expansion like MoP had it's skillpeaks that were kind of hard to reach - playing an Affliction Warlock properly with all the snapshotting and other shit was super hard ( notice I said "PROPERLY" - this isn't to say that a scrub couldn't make a lock and simply soulswap dots around and pollute good results )

If you simplify the endgame, you take the appeal of MMO's away - aka, you stop hooking people on the game. This first started in Wrath when you could get geared up for ICC/earlier raids by simply spamming those ICC heroics, suddenly the average guy had nearly the same gear as someone who raided beforehand. Fuck, I was in a world top 20 guild during Ulduar, and I had nearly BiS gear ( full t8.5, all the trinkets etc etc ) - I stopped raiding after that tier, and I wanted to raid again in ICC - suddenly I see a guy who has better gear than me from crafting+new ICC heroics+normal ToC10 - what the fuck?


What they need to do is make people play tiers again. Like, I'm talking TBC style. There's no going into SSC unless you've completed Karazhan/Gruul. There's no going into Sunwell unless you've finished Black Temple. And they need to make people work for gear again. <- this is especially easy right now considering PvP gear is gone in next expansion, meaning that Blizz won't have to worry about people grabbing PvP gear from vendors and being able to enter raids immediately. Also, "normal" version of a tier 2 raid SHOULDN'T drop better loot than "heroic" version of tier 1 raid.

Also, they really fucked up with the dungeons. I remember back in TBC - EVERYONE AND THEIR MOTHER had to grind heroics because from heroics came the BiS trinkets ( Icon of the Silver Crescent <3 ) that were BiS for the major part of the expansion, and came other pieces of gear that were, if not BiS, then nearly BiS, even for BT/Sunwell raiders. Current dungeons - herp derp, some blues and apexis shards lulz. What are Apexis shards used for again? I don't know, and I played WoD seriously during Highmaul/BRF/WoD S1 and I'm playing it casually now in S3.

But alas, they'll never make the game harder again, simply because that's not their goal with the game anymore. Timesinks aren't popular with the current generations - they're the generation that are used to buying a game from Android market and then dump 100 dollars on it just to have it completed. This is the business model Blizz is aiming at, and they can suck my fat cock and my hairy balls for it.

There's one thing Legion absolutley MUST ADDRESS, even with this whole pruning thing, and that's HEALING COMING FROM SOURCES THAT ARE NOT HEALERS THEMSELVES.

CASTERS ( unless your class is a warlock and your spec is Affliction ) SHOULD NOT have any self healing. Ice Block healing, Ember Taps, toss it all out of the window.

CASTER HYBRIDS such as Shadow Priests, Balance Druids, Elemental Shamans SHOULD be able to dish out some offheals that can potentially save the situation, but it should be taxed in some way. A Saving Grace mechanic on their direct target healing? F.ex. Shadow has this thing called Shadow Mend in Alpha - make it heal for approx 25% of someone's health on first cast, Shadowpriest gets debuffed, next heal is 12% of someone's health, so on so on, same would apply for Elemental and Balance. Or make those heals effective but cost insane amount of resources, so you have to choose between damage and healing.

MELEE and MELEE hybrids ( with the exception of Retribution Paladins ) should absolutely NOT be able to dish out any noticable self healing whatsoever. Windwalker healing? Imo remove Surging Mist from them completely, the only thing I'd keep is Chi Wave talent tier self healing. Enhancement Shaman healing? Toss it out of the window, and focus on their aspect of being the offensive support melee hybrid. Warriors, Hunters, Rogues? Remove their self healing completely. Death Knights should be able to heal themselves, but not in their current capacity. Frost should lose self healing completely, while Unholy should keep it. Retribution Paladins should keep their healing as they're the defensive+utility melee hybrid. As for Demon Hunters, I've seen them spell leech from 10 to 100% health in an instant - what the fuck?


Once you get rid of it all, INTRODUCE STRONGER PVP BANDAGES AND ARENA FOOD.

PVP bandages should heal you for approx 60% health over the course of 10ish seconds with a minute ( or longer ) debuff that prevents you from rebandaging.

Arena food should act the same way ordinary food acts. Okay you managed to escape to eat? Good for you, you're rewarded for your possible outplay or whatever.


Also, current healer healing is absolutely unjustifiable with the amount of self healing left in the game. Why do Hunters have a self healing aura for crying out loud?

Look kid, you hit gladiator once. Now let's break it down, why did you hit gladiator?

1) You played a warrior in a season that was dominated by warriors. (No Skill)
2) You played KFC. (No Skill)
3) You used a one shot macro. (No Skill)

This doesn't give you the right to come on here and act like your hot shit and start talking and posting a thread everyday about your "accomplishment" or "issues". I don't even consider S12 a legit season and I'm sure plenty of others agree. Also I don't know why you're saying I'm mad. My post doesn't even come off as mad, it's coming off as you're being annoying. Then you called me a no life, lol, I'm not even going to start, but I'm pretty sure I have a way better life than you if all you care about is getting your S12 helm on AJ in 2013...

you sound mad bro

I haven't read any comments that make him seem like a saint out of the bible, if you think that you musn't know very many kind people or hear very many kind things about people. He's just a nice person, there's no act to it. I've known Kisz for I think 2 years now, he's just truly a kind person, nothing more to it. He plays for fun and he plays with just about anyone, isn't elitist, and has played Ele since before Ele was good. Just unfortunate to see someone who plays their class well, played fairly, get dq'd.




They didn't cheat. That's the point of this thread. They honestly did nothing more than just play the game and then finish at r1, log in the next day, and have an e-mail from Blizzard saying they are DQ'd. That means ANYONE in this game who holds any title might just randomly get DQ'd. It's more the principle behind the whole thing, how win traders/ddosers/account-sharers all get to keep their titles, but a team who legitamately got R1 gets Reset. They weren't safe all season, and all top 3 r1 teams q'd on the last day of the season, leaving Kisz's team at R1. If they were cheating you better believe r2 and r3 team would of made it loud and clear to everyone.

you're irrelevant shut the fuck up
