Wintergrasp wasn't fun.
Tol barad wasn't fun.
Ashran isn't fun.

Can't be.

After 3 expansions of casualizing and simplifying surely they have figured out that there is a strong correlation between that and the drop in subscription numbers?

Best would be if they fired Holinka right then and there on the stage. Would buy the expansion and a year long subscription right away if they did that.


maby that was their buisness plan all along? #fireHolinky

When WOTLK ended, they had two roads of development that they could have taken.
1) Keep developing the game as they did pre WOTLK - meaning: make it hard, but rewarding. Make it unforgiving and a true RPGMMO.
2) Finally give in to all the whine "game too hard for casuals", "dont want to play this game if I cannot be like THAT GUY", "I want to be a gladiator also, but I am too lazy to improve, make the game easier so I can get glad with no effort at all"

Sadly, as the second development path was where the majority of the players were (where all the money was), they choose to develop the game in that direction. The impact of this was huge. Once everyone can get everything they want, that SOMETHING (whether its a title, mount, gear, achievement) loses its value. If everyone can have spectral tiger - spectral tiger is not desirable anymore. Doesn't matter it looks good, if everyone has it - loses value. That is exactly what had happened to this game after they gave in to all the whining "I want to be as good as that guy and I WANT IT NOW!". The game got simplified which resulted in a decreased ability to outplay your opponents, thus making it easily playable for everyone. But guess what? No one really likes this once they realize that they are not special and that things you do can be done by anyone...

I expect more abilities pruning so we left with 3 buttons. I cannot handle the complexity of my frost dk.
Don't even be sarcastic about it because I feel blizzard developers cannot distinguish if you are being sarcastic or serious.

if they just rereleased Wotlk it would probably be the best thing they could do at this point.

But I received the exact same helm on my shaman 2 weeks in a row so duplicates are possible.
How many items are there overall from the boxes? 30?

i fucking love gear rng, best idea ever.


#4449704 Expansion theme announced, timetravel stuff again

Now, if only they could find a way to timetravel in real life so we can play WOTLK again.


#4447646 Should we take the middle road with the dispel system?

Is your argument a good one, though ?

Bear with me here for a little, probably a wall of text inc - I know it's annoying, but it's hard to explain everything without explaining it completely. Mages and Warlocks were historically THE two caster classes that were a staple in arena and in PVE since the inception of the game, they're the two sides of the same coin, with Shadow/Ele/Balance representing spare change ( Warriors/Rogues being the other major coin, and all other melee being spare change ). Those two coins, the melee and caster one, represented classes that were ENABLERS ( enablers enabled other classes to work in arena, in a world where without them, they'd have not a single tier 1 comp ).

On S15 and Warlocks :
Spoiler

On game balance :
Spoiler


On your and everyone elses opinions :
Spoiler



If I was Blizzard, I'd disallow queueing double melee AND double caster unless I took specific steps to make sure that all 3 comp archetypes were properly balanced ( with the exception of double healer, I'd never allow ANYONE, EVER, to queue that ). When everyone swapped to Shatter during S8, I was the only Spriest left in the world that was above 2700 and still played melee/caster/healer. I caved in once the best mage on my battlegroup asked me to play 3s, and I didn't lose a single game from that point to the end of season in 3s due to how OP double caster was ( and I still regret not getting R1 that season, but that Mage was somehow satisfied with not playing the game and only getting Glad ). So trust me when I say that I don't like double caster as much as you, but I also despise melee cleavers who demand rights in this game. Fuck you double melee, fuck you double caster, shut the fuck up and sit the fuck down.


edit : added spoilers to not make the post feel threatening to people, but even with spoilers, the visible parts still feel like a menace, lol


#4447391 Should we take the middle road with the dispel system?

Posted Lolflay on 04 July 2015 - 03:23 PM

I don't agree with OP though, I mean, dispel system IS shit, but all iterations barring the TBC dispel system were pretty much crap, further changes would make it even more crap. The only thing I'd do is bring back double offensive dispel for Shamans and Priests.

They just need to make healers have clear strengths and weaknesses. A 3v3 comp should be based on filling out each others weaknesses instead of just slapping three classes together that do the most damage/healing/control.

Like, okay, Shaman has a weakness towards melee - slap a ret paladin in there, he should offer like, aura mastery/freedom/BoP to the Shaman, while Shamans by default are strong versus casters, thus helping out Ret with his weakness - synergy and great game design motherfucker.

At the same time I'd remove all these fucking retarded cooldowns healers recieved, why the fuck does a resto shaman have aura mastery, why the fuck does a resto shaman have freedom, why the fuck does a priest have stealth, why the fuck does a paladin have 2 charges of bop/sac/freedom, etc.

Old system relies in a completely different game , where there are trashbuffs etc , where making ms fall off mattered etc.Won't work in the current meta , no way.


#4446494 Holinka, WoD, and RNG: A Story of Ignorance

Posted Cretch on 02 July 2015 - 08:52 PM

"PvP gearing has had RNG since Lich King. Archvon, Baradin Hold, Sha of Hatred, Celestials. All PvE content that gave less PvP gear than 6.2."

In previous seasons RNG awarded you the gear faster than others, but you still were able to eventually purchase it before the season ended. This season RNG might award you BiS gear, or you might go all season without it. That distinction is what so many are up in arms about, and he hasn't addressed it one time.

The story of continued ignorance continues...
