somewhat related, i was really hoping with the item squish we'd be going back to bc or wotlk healthpools, pretty disappointing to see wod is going to have cata/mop amounts of hp
As long as the damage and healing is proportional to your healthpool, how does is matter how much actual health you have? I'm sure you can normalize whatever unitframe you're running so you can feel nostalgic with 9k health.
I don't think this is anything else but a marketing stunt by Blizzard. I mean, who in their right state of mind would invest in a game which have a had a steady decline in playerbase over several years.
The expansion isnt even in beta yet, and by the looks of it its quite far away. This means that teams would only have a few weeks to practice, and going by all previous expansions the balance will be totally out of whack.
You seem to not understand how ridiculously easy it is to get access now anyways. Any decent player can get 2200 in 5s in one night and get junkies status. 2200 in 5s is Rival. When I first got access to AJ I was 40 points above glad cutoff. The cutoff is insanely lower than it used to be.
My point is: anyone who is even mediocre CAN post on AJ if they want.
Xandyn no longer posts as he was permanently banned. Khuna was also permanently banned, although I believe an agreement was made to overturn it. It does not matter how 'popular' a poster is, if they break the rules, they will be banned (case in point, this thread).
You would be best contacting Vanguards, over Rapture, when it comes to bans (all be it, through PM). To my knowledge, Rapture is less involved with the day to day side of AJ these days and is more involved in the core parts of Curse. Vanguards is still very active though.
The problem was that he couldnt contact anyone through PM when he was banned.
