Blizzard should just crash WoW and start over.

this

incinerate all the servers, start from bc with new male blood elf models, never even mention pandas again, never introduce death knights or monks to the game and make hunters only able to use abilities from 20 yards away from their target


#4378810 faerie swarm nerf?

Posted Ashleyirl on 02 February 2015 - 02:35 PM

lol there is no counterplay to a stupid mechanic that leaves you in a wheelchair for the rest of the game while your
healer is spam cced by a 12sec hunter trap

the only reason (or at least I) play burst of speed is to break faerie swarm - you get rid of faerie swarm and you get rid of burst of speed


It feels like everyone is playing burst of speed but in reality its just because every team has a druid on it

faerie swarm, frozen ammo & burst of speed needs a nerf or delete :X


#4377488 This game used to be so great

Things that make me sad:

Mages are Hunters
Hunters are Hunters
All healers are Paladins
Everyone can do everything
Damage is gated by cooldown and secondary resource rather than position and cast time
Too many defensives
Healing too strong
Mortal strike too weak
Everyone can do everything
Nobody has any unique tools anymore

Bring back rating requirement for shoulders please. When I saw someone in a BG with wrathful shoulders it actually meant more for me then when I see a duelist or gladiator now lol.

this godlike music tho :(   the tears are real

I was 14 the first time I heard that music, and then had 5 hours of login queues on launch of US version. Fucking Blizzard.


Anyway, TBC was probably THE best expansion when it came to the game alone ( while end of Wrath was the best period of arena ).

Server communities still existed, battlegroup communities started existing, rise of arenajunkies, ( relatively ) hard raids that didn't have different modes to appeal to casuals, arena was fun as fuck even if some classes were over the top, battlegroups were like mini-countries, there were so many players to meet, etc, and when you swapped to a new server/BG, it was like moving IRL and meeting shitloads of new people, etc.

Isle of Quel'gankas was a cherry at the top of the cake.

no reason to hate on combat.
Other than the fact that if you lose 1 or 2 games playing sub  your partners will ask you why you aren't combat? The vast majority of people that have yet to hit glad are results oriented above all else. Most people don't have the luxury of playing a sub optimal spec.

Why do good Hunters hate BM? Why do the good Dks hate frost? People with the spirit of competition don't enjoy winning by pressing 1 button and having the game play itself for you for 4 seconds.

Nobody just goes "100-0" in arena
Revealing strike must be kept up,
adrush must be used intelligently
eviscerate must be properly cycled to maximize damage over time.
BoS must be used to close distances intelligently

#4377874 With all the homogenization going on it's time to update combat mechanics

Posted Naac on 31 January 2015 - 04:46 PM

I disagree with most of that stuff.

Yeah if you're going for realism and such, sure... but for actual gameplay, it just ends up cluttering the experience.

It'd be like if you added a sprint or prone button to cs:GO or something... yeah technically there's more to do so = higher skill ceiling, but it takes away from the core gameplay (shooting) which is where you want the skill to be required.

Or another example:  They could make you press a random 5 button combo just to cast  frostbolt,, and again, it'd increase the skill ceiling dramatically, but not in the aspects most people actually care about... it just becomes tedious.

Wait, what. Not sure if serious :-)

Absolutely serious actually. I prefer to "cripple" my own class than face fucking retards playing it every day. This is not a rogue style of play. Rogue skill level always revolved around proper cooldown management and decision making and specing burst of speed completely kills this niche.

I  don't even know if an ability has ever been more rightfully called mongo.

no one should have a buff weith 70% movement speed that has 100% uptime.  not even counting in breaks slows...  make killing spree peelable and we will talk about your BOS
So theres nothing wrong with FF or frozen arrow or warrior perma slow spam? Not saying BoS is'nt retarded but use your head. Rogues wouldn't be forced to use it if there weren't so many spammable slows that have no place in this game.


#4372658 Why burst of speed can't be nerfed

Posted Mavrickk on 26 January 2015 - 07:18 PM

First off, I don't consider a 3 sec cool down on burst of speed a "nerf". But if it helps all of the people complaining about it to stop then it is great. The reason it is not a nerf is because they didn't take out the fact that it removes slows (WHICH THEY SHOULDN'T) and they didn't make the speed slower. Adding a 3 sec cool down does not make it nerfed, for a lot of rogues it will actually make it better. This is because if they are trying to rush to the resto shaman and spamming burst of speed then by the time they get to him the rogue has no energy. So putting a cool down on it means that the rogue can actually be "smart" and reach the shaman with some energy. I'm sure a lot of rogues spam burst of speed and make them selves energy starved without realizing it until it is to late. The only thing that I see bad about this change is when a dk or Druid spams chains of ice of faerie swarm/fire. But even when that is happening there are ways to counter it just depends on the situation.

Now as to the reason it can't be nerfed, burst of speed can't be nerfed because if it was to be nerfed by either add a longer cd, I've seen suggestions of 15+ sec, or take out where it removes slows. The reason these will not work is because as soon as one of these changes happen, burst of speed becomes useless. At that point, it would be worth it just to get rid of the talent period and make something new or try a different idea for that tier. Because once burst of speed is nerfed by that much then people just run shadowstep as many high rated rogues all ready are.

Speaking from a rogue point of view I would love to see the removal of burst of speed to something else, I extremely liked the idea posed by Hobbesqt on a different forum post about burst of speed

Let's do what every single rogue wants anyways. Nuke the tier, give SS baseline, and make that tier all about making SS more fun, engaging, and so on.

Hear me out.

Take away friendly target shadowstepping. Make that one of the tier talents (necessary for buffs). Add to the talent that if you do this, the CD is reduced by 5-10 seconds.

Another talent let's you SS while rooted, but you stay rooted.

Another can give two charges to SS, each on a 40 second CD.


Just spitballing here, but I do think most rogues would prefer this? And we would be rid of BoS mongos.
I feel as though this would make the rogue game play a lot better since shadowstep has a lot better of a play making ability where rogues can do so much more then just spec combat and continuously charge at healers till red buff activates *cough* *cough* Nessper *cough* *cough*
