#4375922 Unpopular opinions thread

Posted jaimex on 29 January 2015 - 10:20 AM

Nothing really original from me, but I have to or else whats the point of me being the face of anti-mage protests.

Mages are a joke. They take minimal skill/effort to play, have a plethora of r1 comps every season they play, since the beginning of time, not even sure any other spec can say that. YES, Mages, RMDs/Godcomp etc do have a very high skill cap but the problem is you can play any mage druid comp to 10% of it's potential and win blizzcon. When you queue into one of the only good mages, like nolifer, you understand how bad any other high mage actually is in comparison. And you the rating difference between them is often negligible.

Lock Shaman on the other hand, has to often play perfectly defensively to win games, which is retarded considering a mage druid can overlap ns, block and vigil and still live indefinitely. One messed up ns/heals/ironbark, etc, all cause the game to instantly be lost as LSD, WLS, whatever.

tl;dr mages are retarded and shouldn't be allowed to queue arena. Also flameglow topkek?

also rov was fun

All nessper and pinkrangers hate aside, the amount of mediocre players sitting in mid-high ratings this season is extremely alarming.  The game is just too easy, too forgiving of mistakes.  Watching some of these "top level" hunters play the game, I'm amazed they can even function as human beings, much less win games in arena.  It confuses me how you can miss the majority of your free pom sheeps while running around sprinted and forgetting your rotation, but you somehow managed to turn the computer on.

MoP has been a complet piece of shit since the beginning to WoD ...
WoD is the exact same thing as MoP or maybe even worse
Oh well, he added Swifty NPC and Bajheera NPC, yeah nice change ...
He had to make arena cross realm and everything because the game came very unpopular in PvP/Arena
They also had to merge realms together because customers keep de-subbing ...

MoP and WoD are still far superior to Cataclysm - the "masterpiece" of Ghostcrawler. Xrealm arenas and removing teams was actually a really good chance - people can actually play more now and try different comps. It was very sad that people was sitting at their ratings from the first two weeks of the season - only the bottom of the ladder was active. There has been dead realms since TBC and again it was really good change to start the server merges.

This thread is just attention seeking bullshit with zero clue about anything. Holinka has made some mistakes, but he has done far better job than Ghostcrawler ever did.

Ghostcrawler and his "bring the player not the class" bullshit is the worst thing that happened to WoW.

Most changes Holinka made was an attempt to clean Ghostcrawler's mess and bring WoW back to a more TBC/WotLK-like time. He just sucks at his job.

Shape shifting every root just has no place in this game. Comparing it with rogue burst of speed is dumb, but it still doesn't change the fact that no class should be 'immune' to certain form of crowd control(but,but, it has been like that forever, iconic feral ability,right?-Honestly, who cares). Like, try fearing warrior as a priest. All these secondary trinkets should be made in a way so that you actually have to react in order to get to use them, not the other way around:" I have fucked up because I got cced, nvm, ill just use one of my trinkets because I am a dk" is a good example. If this game is ever to be at least close to being good, all of those things need to be changed.
Also, please remove frozen ammo and faerie fire spam.

Thanks for your opinion I guess?

I feel like any change (or lack of change) that happens, people bitch that either:
  • These classes have unique abilities that are game-breaking! Fuck data or numbers, I feel like they are game-breaking! This game is terrible until they fix this!
  • Every class is the same! Homogenization has ruined this game! Bring back uniqueness! This game is terrible until they fix this!
Feral root shifting is the rock to some classes' scissor, sure. Are we rising to the top of the charts because of it? No. Are we able to get to the top of the charts if we woop some ass? Yes. Viable, yet not retardedly OP. A little rock paper scissors is fine simply because it is 3v3. Find a damn partner that covers the weakness. In the metagame, that is called synergy.

Learn to deal with it like every other high rated player has. Train the druid. Fear the druid. Stun the druid. Oom the druid (apparently this is a thing again). You have options that work very well.

I personally think warlock fear has been retarded since I first seen it, but I'm not out there calling for nerfs to the fundamental ability of the class just because I hate it. And you know what? Locks are better represented than us ferals.

People use literally the exact same argument to have stealth itself removed from the game. Should it be removed? Nope. Should people learn to deal? Yep. And there are also people who hate Blind, Kidney Shot, and a host of other abilities. They still shouldn't be removed just because they don't fit into some random person's idea of what this game should be.

That would break the rogue without giving some buffs to shadowstep. They should atleast make it break/can be cast during roots.

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.

Nice change. BoS was broken and Feral shapeshift isn't(lol). Its not like ferals run %30 default and can also get out of roots for free.

I hear you can compare class abilities on a 1:1 ratio as long as you stay ignorant of any other abilities the class brings. Be sure to never bring up the insane amount of control that a rogue brings, exponentially increasing the effectiveness of breaking snares. Definitely don't bring up the un-cc-able burst combat rogues bring that is dependent on higher uptime, both in the ability itself and the CD reduction. And definitely don't bring up smoke bomb, gouge, 70% movement speed during BoS, fleet footed, 6 second stuns on a 20 sec CD...

Ya, as long as you cherry pick the bubble you stay in, abilities are really easy to 1:1 compare.

Apples are exactly like oranges. And exactly like Volkswagen Beetles.
