It's extremely sad what has happened to Blizzard. I still play the game and hope for a change, but don't think it's ever gonna happen... The game has really gone to shit. Just read a blue post on the shop mount earlier today aswell:
Production takes a long time, and we have them on a regular release cadence. You can be certain than every few months there will be a new store mount.
If someone buys a mount off the Shop we don't want there to then be confusion as to whether it's the Shop version, or a recolor obtained through in-game means. We essentially purposely ensure shop mounts stand out as shop mounts.
Just throw everything to the shop and collect $$. And it doesn't even matter if 99% of the players don't buy them, they still make shitloads of money from them and will keep doing it. Just gonna have to suck this shit up or stop playing pretty much
Good read, and for the first time I liked all his anwsers. Get the hate goggles off for a second, from what I can tell they're making it so TR naturally inflates along the season, it's not only about gear. The fact that you can upgrade your conquest gear with conquest points also means better queues for a longer period of time.
Do you even know how miniscule the PVP population is in WoW? Its actually insane if you just think about it and toss some simple math around, its an almost negligible % of the overwall WoW community. You could get every single person that was ever registered on AJ to quit and Blizzard would still be just as bad at balancing arena.
For real though, balance isn't even the key to how viable a game is as an e-Sport and obviously its not the key to the longevity of a game, because according to every PVPer, Blizzard is the worst at balancing and yet here you all are, 12 seasons in, years later, still playing. Wanna know why?
Cause arena is fun, theres nothing quite like it, no matter how terrible the balance is, the mere core concepts of teamwork and fundamentals of arena will consistently make it addicting and enjoyable. In fact, thats how its always been, and its not even a concept that applies to arena or WoW exclusively, it applies to many competitive games at the highest echelon.
Typically I would say that should be good enough, arena is fun and thats why you all are still playing. Unfortunately, the way this game has evolved ( Not necessarily the balance, I suppose i'm lending this statement moreso towards how arena is played due to the overflux/influx of instant CC in the game ), the disdain for the gameplay is starting to outweigh the overall enjoyment of arena. I wouldn't say thats a balance issue necessarily though.
I have no idea where I was going with this. TLDR - You could get every PVPer to quit and Blizzard would still suck at balancing gg no re mi
Ok, if you like rogue play a rogue if you don't, don't. It shouldn't take a X glad/ multi rank 1 to say "ye bro play a rogue" for you to want to play a class. make a decision based on what you want.
Also i looked up previous posts you made
"You're right, it is a completely new expansion, so why talk about nerd boy? stay pasty peasant
-Lord Zapple X'
"Undead only race worth playing unless you're a nerd who likes to look at female blood elves"
"yeah but emerald dream is for the pasty roleplay nerds. If you're not a pasty roleplay nerd, why play on there? That's like playing on moon guard and not being a pasty roleplay nerd. It's counter productive"
"I like it, there's more pasty nerds for me to take a big poo on."
"God damn this pasty nerd doesn't give up."
Why would anyone every want to give you constructive feedback when you make comments like this everyday...you call people pasty nerds when you posts on Aj every fucking day.
think I speak for everyone when I say fuck off and grow up bitch
