#4607089 [POLL] How are you liking Legion character development?

Posted by Nogahn on 26 September 2016 - 08:24 AM



Other then that I can't really complain, the expansion has that MMO feel to it still even almost a month after release. There will always be pessimistic people to cherry pick everything they don't like about the game, but it would be virtually impossible to please every single person in the community.

I really don't get it why people play WoW (a MMO) if they seemingly dislike the general idea behind MMOs.


People should simply play a different game and stop crying about... "oh I have to level" "damn I have to farm items" "why is class x better than y". This game is not ment to be your league of legends or cs:go it's a motherfucking MMO. (has been like this since forever )


yes. pvp could get more love but hey... I got news for you


amount of players who enjoy and play pve > amount of players who focus on competitive pvp.

#4576737 On Pruning, PvP, and Our Goals for Legion

Posted by Nogahn on 18 April 2016 - 07:16 AM

- gimme back my scattershot. (it has been an esential hunter ability since vanilla and gave my class much more utlity)

-> to compensate that ability blizzard should bring back the "arm-time" for launched traps. (depending on range .5 - 1.5 secs - triggers instantly if you simply lay it down) - back then you actually had to be a tiny bit creative to get off traps.

- I'd also would like to see silenceshot back in the skilltree. (wyvern + silence + binding) so we actually have to make a decision on what ability we need for a certain matchup/strategy. (instead of picking wyvern 80% of the time)

I.E. do you wanna play wyvern vs godcomp so you dont have to care about MD/use it for cross cc or do you wanna play silence to deny a poly (100% denied since our interupt is dogshit and even has traveltime)

Bring back the old tranqshot mechanic (costs 20 focus and is spammable - not reduceable with BW) I dont want my gameplay to rely on RNG.

PRUNE exotic ammo. it's a dumb mechanic which does not require any skill at all and allows me to slow 2 opponents for most of the game.

PRUNE double execute it's a dumb mechanic (nerf executes in general - hi my fellow warriors)

CHANGE - let wyvern be interuptable (and be locked on nature + make all my traps to be nature spells)

#4576584 The Community.

Posted by Nogahn on 17 April 2016 - 09:08 AM

Last friday I kinda had the same experience.

I geared one of my alt hunters and was bored as fuck.
I looked into the LFG-menu and thought it might be fun to play some 3s for fun.

-LF Hunter for PHS be 2.2+ xped and have 2k+ cr-

I asked them if they want to give it a try and only after I linked them my main I got invited (eventho I had 0 cr and the last time I played was in s1)
Those two guys refused to join skype or teamspeak. (but w/e I told them how we should cc and that in general I'd rather want to use my deterence first and told them a general gameplan once we joined the arena)

We played 2 games on 2.1mmr. First one was vs an RMD in which the mage forgot to block.(30sec game).

Second game was against a jungle-cleave.

Game had started and I went for a trap once the feral had opened. Ret seemingly forgot to hoj on top....
10secs after my trap he uses a random HOJ while we don't have any follow ups nor burst.

This repeats about 5 times. We lose.

I told them that we have to actually line up traps with a hoj on top (or vice versa).

They literally told me to fuck off and that this game has changed, that I don't know shit and that I'm the worst hunter they ever played with.

Probably was the first and last time I gave that tool a try.

most people in LFG are pathetic losers who got their own reasons why they search for team-mates with this tool.

I.E. - toxic - can't take criticiscm well and therefore won't find longterm mates - ragers.

#4575354 Pretty good post on PvP by Harland

Posted by Nogahn on 12 April 2016 - 09:49 AM

The point is that blizzard actually believes that making the game easier will bring new players to the game which should instantly be able to play with their "veteran" friends and feel like they actually accomplish something.

I guess most blizzard game-designers haven't played much "real" games so far.

The reason why I get hooked up on a game ist that I actually feel like I'm working towars something and keep improving.
Challengemodes, Raiding, Rating. (what ever motivates you)

The casuals usually cry on the forums 24/7 about how hard the game is/was.
Those are the informations blizzard collects most of the time.

"boss is too hard" "my class is so bad" "can't get glad because I'm a scrub and this is bullshit"

The better players usually don't even visit the official forums anymore.
We the far above average up to elite level players don't even bother posting anything relevant on the forums we just keep it to ourselves and maybe have an occasional breakdown an circlerrage on the game.

Blizzard did the mistake to actually design the game for the casuals to make them happy again. (for the shortterm)
What Blizzard forgot is why those casuals keep asking for it.

They crave for attention and want to be as succesful as "method" or be the next arena-god.
Those casuals crave for this because the want the attention and feel special about themsellf.

What blizzard keeps forgetting is that there's nothing to aim for if you get everything handed on a silver platter and if the casuals don't have anything to aim for then they will get bored sooner or later.

Blizzard should have realised by now that if people are willing to cry on the official forums = they cry because they really want that title / acm / boss kill. They don't want it due to the achievement itself they want it due to the reputation/prestige reaching this goal brings with it.

I remember a time in TBC in which I was in the best pve-guild on my server and I was 1 out of the 3 hunters with a full-T6 and a legendary bow. People (other hunters) looked up to me and asked me for advices because they knew what having T6 actually ment back then.

Maybe this game was nerdy and ate all your time back then but this kinda created hierachy on every single server.

Do you remeber when you were a little pleb and spectated those gladiators doing duels in front of Orgrmmar and occasionally tried to beat them in a duel and got your ass kicked because they outplayed the shit out of you? and how good it felt once they you became one of them?

#4572363 Non-damage buttons are missing

Posted by Nogahn on 31 March 2016 - 09:21 AM

I hope blizzard really thinks about why their game used to be the best MMO ever.

It wasn't because anyone could succeed. It was because the game was really challenging and you coul really outshine other player's due to the pure amount of abilties which could have been used in many ways.

My class may not be considered a hard class to play but do you remember the time when you used to face a hunter comp and you would think "wow, this hunter actually outplayed us/me". (do you remember the old tosan and braindeadly movies?)

A hunter had utility to work with and could actually make game-changing decisions.

Do you want to use readyness to dive in for the kill to get that extra chimera/cc - or do you save it for a second deterence?

Such decisions made the difference between a good and a great hunter. Such a decision could have won or lost you the game.
Nowadays I don't even have scattershot... I can't do that many wrong decisions anymore... you can rarely do any epic plays which are even worth the effort... you get away with being good at the basics.

Most of the utility I bring to the table are passives... (buffs, frozen ammo, pet-damage/dots)
I rarely find myself in a situation in which I get hyped about landing a trap... (since it's too easy to get off)
I can't do anything at all... I just do my dps rotation and try to land a trap on cd... sometimes I might cross-cc with a wyvern...

The only thing I enjoy doing is knocking things around map...

The game just got so fckn monotone

#4463369 Everyone is gladiator and rank one now lol ?

Posted by Nogahn on 31 July 2015 - 09:10 AM

I don't agree, I'm having a real hard time finding active glad/r1/2.7 partners. I'm basically spending my time off work looking for ppl to play with, every other day I find someone and play a couple of hours and every other day I just stand afk in Stormshield thinking about what I'm doing with my life/spare time.

Might be because feral isn't as fotm as last season when everyone wanted to play jungle. Now everyone wants to play shatter and shit like that instead, which by the way was fotm last season but has evolved into some kind of über fotm this season.

most of the time I struggle finding a healer :D all my palas are like Jungle? nah, I'm playing shatter now and shamans are rare as fuck :D

#4455212 So, I am sitting here watching the Aussy/NZ tourny

Posted by Nogahn on 18 July 2015 - 07:26 AM

People are whining about RMx and wizcleaves, but watching Warr/DK/Mistweaver is literally ten times worse. Both are shitty to watch, but its such a cringe watching a melee cleave "DO A CLUTCH SWAP TO A HEALER WITH ASPHYXIATE!11o1eno1neo1eno1neo1n1o1!!!!111one1oneone"

still better than... the healer got deepfreezed and is getting polied, NO HE GOT INTERUPTED... but there's a ring of frost OH MY GOD HE GOT KNOCK-INTERUPTED... nvm full fear... into poly... into poly.... into sllence

#4451543 Remove mages from the game

Posted by Nogahn on 12 July 2015 - 08:08 AM

Just put a fucking CD on Poly already. 8 seconds should suffice.


when hunters got a 12sec trap reactions = LOLOLOLOLOL EVERYHUNTER COMP CAN TRAP-RANDOMCC-TRAP dafuw BLIZZARD??? ---- yes it was retarded as fuck. I won't deny that :)

but mages are gonna deep-polly jk got kicked ring you

but hey they are mages it's mkay, you need skill to have sucess on a mage, u know?
same for rogues and locks.

but hunters? fuck hunters, stupid retards, no skill. mongo-class.

PS: every "spamable" cc should have at least a 6-8sec cd. I mean dafuq is this: wizard peels = spam-cc no matter what. Spamable CC doesn't belong in the game as long as we have a coolodwn on dispel.

#4451054 RBG's are basically dead

Posted by Nogahn on 11 July 2015 - 08:04 AM

dunno how thats even an argument when bailamos has straight up said in some vod that rbgs are just as comp based as 3s.

theres like 1-2 "good" comps u can run in rbgs then you can replace 1-2 of those roles with different caster varients and there you go.

dont kid urself man

wow stop crying kid.

ye rbgs have certain "comps" but in RBGs it's much more important how good your team mates are.
You can play the best comp in the game but if for example your lock doesn't know how to peel for the healers and how to setup cross-cc you would be better with another DPS.

In RBGs hunters are considered shit but nonetheless I was able to be in the top20 in RBGs last season because I made my class work.
I was almost 300 rating above any other legit hunter because I knew what the my team needs and could deliver.
This means abusing Knockbacks, exotic defense strategies, winning 1on1s easily, peeling for your healer and FC.
Yes RBGs are comp based but those comps are based around 8 classes and the rest can be replaced by another one (random DPS-slots).

#4419787 WoW Down to 7.1 Million Subscribers

Posted by Nogahn on 07 May 2015 - 07:15 AM

People came back during wod hoping for a more meaningful arena experience. Also much better pace wise and just overall better balance and everyone is now leaving with the bad taste in their mouth of

- Combat rogue
- Resto Druid
- Mages with No CD on poly still
- Godcomp
- Rmd
- Bm Hunter One Shot Madness

So many changes to balance the game could be easily made yet they still don't do it and look. Pvp in an all time low for activity.

lol you guys have to understand that m,ost people DO NOT play arenas xD HAHAHAHAHAHAHA....

eventho people are leaving because the OVERALL GAMEPLAY is boring as fuck.... there is no room for players to shine anymoree.... there's not even 1 hard dps rotation... there's nothing challenging left in the game.

for example... hunters, hunters were kinda complex in PVE due to the reason that you had to manage your focus and had a pretty fucked up opener rotation (bw,dps rotation,readyness,bw,again,crows again before your buffs decay)

good hunters pushed their dps to the limit by calculating how much focus they will need for the next 10 globals on the run and they knew when they could put 1 more arcaneshot in their rotation or exactly knew how to utilize their disengage.

All of this complexity is gone due to blizzard removing readyness etc. and I guess everyclass is experiencing somewhat the same.
(PS: PvE is as boring as arenas are)

edit. when was the last time you felt being outplayed by your opponents instead of outclassed?

the average glad RMD or Jungle is as dangerous as the top elite players can be.
