In Topic: Games like Arena but not shit?

It is like WoW arena. Idk how you can have an opinion on it if you've never even played it. It also takes way more skill than WoW in its current state as everything is a skill shot.

 

 

More skill?  Yeah.  Similar to wow arena in any capacity?  Nah.   This is like a HOTS arena more than anything else.

Well, when you try to enter a raid portal, you get a red error text that says "You have to be in a raid group to enter". But ok, regardless of our understanding of the word "forced", my point was that nowadays there's much less reason to actively seek contact with people in the game than there used to be. You can literally have the chat disabled and just use LFD/LFR to see all of the games content. This is totally not what I think an MMORPG should be about. The social aspect is the whole point, it should not be optional. There should be content that you can only explore with a trusty band of friends.The balance issues are an independent thing. Classes could be the way they are now but in a vanilla context and it'd work all the same (encounters would need tweaking, obviously, but that's still within the scope of balance). I don't think that killing all the social aspects of the game has affected balance in any way. Like, I think the real reason even this site died are the changes that happened in WoD - the addition of the premade finder, removal of battlegroups; and a few things before that too, like removal of team charters. There's just no need for a PvP community on an external site anymore. People used to come here because they wanted to "get into PvP", they came here to make contacts, to join the community. You don't need that shit when you just queue up and inspect peoples ratings in the game UI.Mythic+ is fine, I guess. What I had in mind about modes is LFR/Normal/Heroic/Mythic for raids. The old model had only one difficulty. That's the way it should be - there should be one difficulty that is tuned for organized groups, period. It should be exclusively a group activity, where you need reliable people that you're ok playing with long(er) term. It shouldn't be doable with a group of 29 strangers like Heroic/Normal currently are. It shouldn't be doable by a 50% AFK group like LFR is. The only thing that was acceptable beyond that is the Ulduar model, where fights had extra conditions that you had to meet for better rewards (hard modes) - but it should still be one instance, not 4 different versions (and lockouts) of the same one.I think the situation where there are parts of the game you've never seen is absolutely fine and even desirable. Like I mentioned before, the reason I got into PvE was that I wanted to see the content, and joining guilds was the only way to do that at the time. That is a case of the game 'forcing' me to join a player-created social structure of people who also want to see the content. There's some charm in that, really.I'm not saying Legion is bad btw. I'm just saying what I miss about vanilla, what I think is lacking in the current game compared to its original form.


Literally everything you said is correct. This is why I don’t get the hate on vanilla/bc/wrath (for the most part for wrath at least)

So, instead of going at my work in 20 min with my car, i should go by walking?

I guess that would makes me do some physical activities.

 

(And i would do that if it was counted on my work's time.)

 

EDIT : Check MMO-Champion, Hotfixes. Not for rogue/mage of course, that would be silly.

 

 

Shit analogy.  Are you actually suggesting that modern day wow is better than vanilla?
