Posted Bigmoran on 07 July 2014 - 04:35 PM

On the road to 3k Xaryu is faced with a disconnect while at 2997 rating. His Gunnars™ keep him focused as he turns this moment of misery into a Phil Collins tribute.

#4103892 Does Blizzard realize they have people on payrole who do nothing?

Posted Moderator on 19 April 2014 - 12:39 PM

If you've ever worked at a big IT/gaming company (circa 2,000 employees), either as a programmer, developer or data analyst, you would know that it's not simply a case of "X needs Y". There are extremely long, complex processes behind everything and every suggestion before it can even be considered being implemented into the game. That's not to mention the approval process.

Blizzard Entertainment do not have single developers for single classes, they have an entire team for all the classes. From which, they have to balance all classes, in all situations, for all specs, whilst keeping it easy to understand for the end user. That's far from an easy task. Changing Frostbolt to do 200% damage in PvP but 100% damage in PvE isn't as simple as changing a bit of code and adding some information to a tooltip - They have to consider:

- How are we going to tell users about this change
- How easy is it for a user to understand the change
- Is the tool-tip going to be bloated
- Does this open the doors for further changes to also be done
- When can we get the translations done by for all supported languages
- Does it require a client build? If so, is it a high enough priority to warrant a client side patch

Even once you've done all that, you need to implement the change on an internal build, do internal QA and tick off every box you've ever known to ensure that no other bugs are introduced with this minor fix. In development, it's not uncommon that changing one minor things, can affect something major elsewhere. There was a post from Blizzard in 2009 about a hot-fix they implemented for class balance, which ended up breaking Onyxia. Completely unrelated, completely separate part of the game, but such is the way of code, especially with a game which now stretches over 50,000,000 lines of code.

Just because it comes out that X has been broken for Y months, doesn't mean anybody knew about it. Even if somewhere, at some point, a user reported the problem, it first of all needs to make it to the ears of the developer through the QA process for it to be delt with. If QA took a look at the issue and decided that there was not a problem, it would never have even made it to the developers. Your bug reports do not go straight to Holinka's inbox, they go to a general repository to then be broken apart, verified and assigned as tasks from team leaders, when/as required.

Put simply, sometimes at work I spend an entire week doing particular tasks, but if you asked me to quantify my results for the week in terms of something visual, I probably wouldn't be able to. It doesn't mean that you've spent 40-60 hours a week doing nothing, it means that you've been working on tasks, investigating, meeting, or even just doing code behind the scenes for future applications. Don't forget that all of these changes that are in the WoD alpha notes, for the most part, are class balance changes. They weren't dreamt up over night, they will have been months of number crunching, decision making and organization to attempt rebalanced across the board.

Take from this what you will, but this is coming from hands on experience in the gaming industry and this field.

I've met a lot of stupid people during my years on planet earth, but you, you're actually the most retarded human being I've ever encountered.

Why would you even make a "whine-thread" about something like this? It literally seems like you're addicted to posting on ArenaJunkies, so when you have nothing clever to write ( Which, you actually never have ) you make pointless retarded threads just in hopes of getting "likes" - at least thats what it seems like.

#4091350 Where have all the rogues gone?

Posted KPul on 03 April 2014 - 01:39 PM

Rogues aren't fun anymore to play.    I know when the stars align i can put out ridiculous damage but when it comes to arenas in order to be successful as a rogue it demands so much synergy to be successful.  Its to the point that it's exhausting to get a win even vs the worst teams.

Also, I've been saying it for a long time but whenever you hit seasons where Hunters or Ferals are the most played class you'll see less and less of rogues playing.    I know when I enter an arena and I see a team make a gauntlet with flares and AoE spam in a tight corner to prevent the rogue opener I laugh.    It makes rogue openers inconsistent and its often unreliable to have a good opener strategy when there are so many targetable AoEs to put a rogue's team in combat.

Rogue gameplay is second nature for me and I'm sure its the same for plenty of other players who have been playing since BC/Wrath.  I am constantly asked how to do simple things like "how to open for good burst" and it leads me to believe that rogue gameplay, in order to be successful, needs to take advantage of every global properly otherwise they will fail immensely and thats too much of a learning curve for a new player. Regardless of how much damage rogues can potentially do I think they have the biggest gap between a new player and a skill capped player.    The reason there are so few rogues playing is because its exhausting and requires so much setup to win against teams that are hundreds of MMR lower than you compared to other classes. The gameplay is stale and easily countered.  The entirety of an arena match as a rogue is determined in the first 20 seconds of an arena and thats not fun / too hard to recover from a mistake.  I think the biggest reason rogue population is so low is because rogues look fun on paper/stream but they immediately turn a player away when they see how much setup it takes vs playing another class to actually be successful.

#4058807 Don't be an asshole

Posted Nadagast on 21 February 2014 - 12:09 AM

I'm sure everyone has seen how much trolling and general douchebaggery have infected AJ.  I'd like it to stop.

Trolling and assholery puts AJ on a downward spiral.  People troll/asshole-it-up, which leads to less people using this as a forum for serious/reasonable discussion, which leads to more trolling, etc.  AJ always was and continues to be the most popular place for new players to get into the PvP scene.  Any community relies on new members to sustain itself--by making this place a wasteland we are doing nothing but ensuring our own demise.

Before you post a reply or topic, ask yourself: am I being an asshole?  If you are, change your post to take a more educational tone.  If you're feeling heated about something, take some time to cool off before replying.  Don't immediately assume someone is trolling you, some people are just not very knowledgeable.  Worst case, if you reply in a calm educational manner, you've posted something informative for the hundreds or thousands of lurkers who will view your reply.  These are generally newer PvPers, and anything you do to help sustain them as arena players helps all of us.

On any set of forums, it's easy to forget that almost all of the people reading it are lurkers, who will never make any posts.  Lurkers cannot be trolls, they can't be assholes, they are just here to learn or read interesting things.  Post interesting, informative content.  Post drama if you want, but don't be an asshole.  Fuck the trolls, post for the lurkers.
