also are the last few posts seriously defending subscriptions or something?

i don't get it

the fact that wow is a subscription based game AS WELL as has trivial character services that cost more than said subscription is fucking retarded. has it ever crossed your mind that you're paying 20$ for a trivial database copy, in a game you're already paying 15$/month for to play?

it's like, why the fuck is this such an expensive service in a game i already pay for and should be treated like a premium customer in? most other big titles are f2p and have server transfers that cost like 5-10$ at most, why is this different?

they're just blatantly milking money because why the fuck change wow's money model when it's working good with its ~10 million subs anyway? let's just keep that rolling until it stops by itself. why change service prices if people really don't mind paying 20$ for a database copy since the moment we introduced it back in like, 2006? let's just keep getting all this money until it's no longer possible.

and it's the same thing for pvp

why the fuck put effort into pvp if there's still gonna be the same group of people playing and talking about it? band-aid fixes and mechanics are enough (such as dampening, their recent introduction/removal of flat 10% damage reduction, etc) to keep this part of the community subscribed, so why do anything at all other than directly react to shitstorms in the community?

imagine if you all guys just made a big flashmob on AJ where you'd all demand those 10% damage reduction back, like, just for a joke

it'd actually work

they don't give a fuck, they only do changes to keep you quiet. and subbed

I honestly don't know why you people are surprised.

In wrath/cata, people would give their left ball to see some of the top teams play, because top teams had the knowledge while lower teams didn't. Back in s8 when I had highest RPS team in the world, arenajunkies was testing out the "live/offline" function of linking xfire streams to their "Stream" section, I pretty much linked my AJ acc to my xfire acc, turned on the stream at something like 6 in the morning, and was fiddling with stream settings and with keybindings on my rogue - those 20 minutes I was fiddling with those things, I got like 400-500 viewers watching me literally doing nothing, at the time when both EU and US are basically sleeping.

Watching top players play was an exclusive thing back then. You felt privileged just seeing a PvP video from a really good team ( Vileroze MLD f.ex. ). Now you see Hydra streaming and you're like "meh" - why ? Because he can't show anything to you that you already don't know. Game took all those extra areas you can excel in, and everyone is playing the fucking same, there are no more special strats you can borrow off a better team than you, the only thing you can do is work on synergy between you and your teammates, and you can't really do that from watching a video/stream of other people playing.

As for Swifty being top streamer, Twitch is popular because of the same population that watches Mexican TV soap shows and stupid American reality shows - except that the people that watch Twitch are gamers, so they watch gamer adaptations of such trash content. Idiots like Sodapoppin getting 10k viewers for being... well, fucking retards, dying their hair and doing random shit on stream ? Those same people that watch him are the people who find shit like Big Brother and other reality shit tv shows interesting.

So if WoW is not capable of producing such braindead streams that attract absolutely MORONIC viewers that are the lowest of the low when human race is concerned, don't expect the game to fare well on Twitch ratings.
I disagree.

Maybe it's because I was a huge fucking nerd back in those BC/LK days, but I don't recall myself watching PvP videos for the purpose of obtaining knowledge. I mean, would you honestly say that Vileroze' video was good learning material? or even any of the Hydra videos? I don't think so. Sure, they were great inspiration, they had great plays (and playlists), they were great fun to watch, but it's still nothing more than a video of cherry picked highlights and tracks, put together primarily for entertainment. It felt 'exclusive' because these videos are works of art, so there's naturally a pretty strong author-viewer connection, and because we all know how much of a pain in the ass recording shit with FRAPS is/was, so someone putting together a fucking sick highlight video just for you to watch deserved respect and a thank you by default, because it wasn't easy until we invented x264.

Meanwhile, a broadcast is just... a broadcast. It's just a show or a "chill with me and chat shit as we play some vidya" kind of thing. Imagine a streamer trying to make you feel exclusive/privileged while you watch him play games? yeah, no. For a highlight video though, it makes sense to try to impress you.

I also don't know why would anyone believe that the game being about knowledge is a good thing at all. Knowledge is binary - you either know something or you don't, there's no actual competition involved. It's just fucking boring, like, for me personally, this has been the exact reason I wrote guides and did all sorts of theorycrafting here and there. It's much more fun to even the field and have really balanced and intense matches, than it is to be a DK who discovered shadowfrost several weeks before Serennia (for example). All this does is introduce more entry requirement, making the initial learning curve very steep and gruesome - it's simply not fun having to learn an overwhelming amount of information before you even get to enjoy the actual game itself, it adds no depth but really fucks with accessibility.

Just because you had fun with it does not mean it's good design - you just got lucky, because when you obtained that knowledge, it gave you a competitive edge; but when these new players are learning it, they're doing it to get on par. It's a whole different experience. All the best games are "easy to learn, hard to master", remember? That means accessible, but with depth. WoW and all the MOBAs (except HotS) have plenty examples of how NOT to design your shit. HotS actually fixed most, if not all, of the bad designs that MOBAs carried for a decade, and that's why there are so many people who are like, "i always despised fucking mobas but im hooked on hots". I'll write a dedicated post about HotS a bit later, let's move on for now.

Your hate towards entertainment streamers is just weird. "Look at all those people watching a show, fucking retards ROFL"


Anyway, the game sucks because of utterly poor design decisions. And I mean completely terrible shit, such as:
- Removing rewards from 2v2, because it's apparently too hard to balance healer mana around both 2v2 and 3v3/5v5. That's cool, but only until the moment you introduce
- Dampening. Apparently balancing mana is just generally too hard, so we might as well just put a generic hard timer on this shit and never have to bother with it again. It kinda fixes the initial problem in 2v2 as well (you know, the bracket that remained most popular despite being worthless?). But you know what? Fuck that, we'll just have, like, 2 brackets which have an equal amount of problems, but we'll reward for only one of them.
- Removing team rosters. It has its upsides, sure, but we all knew it would lead to exactly this. Even the people who were happy about it, were happy because they can finally queue their classes FOTM without remaking a team every time the FOTM changes. Why play ANYTHING other than the best setup, really? If you wonder why you play vs hunter teams 8-10 times in a row, here's a big part of the answer.
- Doing the same mistake every single expansion: spending development resources on, what they call, "world pvp zones". I honestly find it amusing that even after all these terrible zones and desperate attempts to force them down our throats, they don't understand one very simple thing: nobody likes objectives. Notice how everything involving objective-based PvP fucking sucks, even RBGs suck although obviously not for this reason (objectives actually fit here, and only here).
- Cheating. I watched normal battlegrounds become more populated by bots than players, which was exactly around the time where they shifted like 80% of the honor reward from kills and into doing objectives/winning (coincidence?). They could just do 1 big banwave every month or something, and that would scare away basically everyone who isn't hacking for a profit. Or they could come up with a gearing/catchup mechanic that doesn't involve spamming a random queue for >25 hours, while having minimal impact on how much honor per game you actually get. We're talking about like, an ENTIRE PART OF THE GAME being corrupted to the point of broken here, and they are obviously happy with the way things are since nobody is really complaining either. All they want is to keep you subbed, they obviously don't want to design an actually good game.

These are just off the top of my head. The gameplay itself is actually quite fun and satisfying (unless you're a warlock), but absolutely DOGSHIT systems design is what actually ruins it. Any one of you remember Ghostcrawlers official position in Blizzard?

"Lead Systems Designer"

That is all.

Edit: oh ye, don't you keep referring to your experiences in LoL whenever there's a conversation like this? I might be confusing you with someone else. Anyway, LoL is BY FAR the most video-content-oversaturated game out there. You can just replace all the WoW stuff with LoL stuff in your first two paragraphs and it'll make just as much sense... as in, it'll be just as wrong.

whats wrong with caring about the environment you live in? or being vegan? i'd say go for it, you might learn a thing or two about common sense and nutrition


does she actually define herself as a 'feminazi' or is that a tag you put on her?

just read your next post. so you went from


Got her name, she thinks im handsome, ok heres the fucking catch though, CAUSE THERE IS ALWAYS A CATCH.

Shes a vegan.

Shes a feminazi

Shes rly into saving the enviroment.


I have no problem with the vegan shit

The feminazi shit, man im all for equality n shit

Enviroment stuff is good I guess
may i ask what was the point of making the original post in the first place? or being bothered by those things at all?

its a rhetoric question, i'm just pointing out your own behavior here. imagine if this thread went on and nobody questioned those things in the way that flexes did, or a bunch of people posted something like "yeah, fuck vegans, fuck equality, fuck the environment, ditch the bitch", you would then have the ultimate justification and excuse for you not to bother with this girl and just do nothing. nice try, but you really gotta drop this habit where you attempt to use the confirmation of other people (or other external factors) to justify your own laziness. its glaringly obvious whenever you do it, you'd only fool people who just don't know you with that

regarding the girl though, it does sound like she's several levels ahead of you. that doesn't mean you don't have a chance or you should feel less or whatever, but just keep in mind that she is most likely reading you like an open book. that doesn't mean she likes you more or less, but it does mean that if you're dishonest or fake she will see right through it. this is most likely what your friends mean when they advise you to just express yourself when she's around, because they see the same behavior that i explained above and know that you can fuck it up by being fake. i mean, just ask yourself why would your friends feel like giving this advice specifically is necessary or good for you? if you're being advised to just be yourself, maybe that's something you're not doing enough of? these things are really easy to see from the exterior, your friends (and that girl) see it much better than you do and you should trust them on that. if i were your friend, this would be my only advice to you as well.

she most likely knows that you wanna add her on fb but being a pussy

just saying

you're also just being dishonest again. you wanna add her? just fucking do it then. if you don't do it due to a fear of her having a negative reaction to it (i.e. you're afraid she will find it stalkish), that just proves that your behavior towards her is all about building a very specific image of yourself in her head (read: you're trying to win her), or, in other words, is an act. the advice we all gave you was 'just express yourself', and you're fucking it up already. if you think you're fooling a woman with this, trust me you're not. men have tried to win this game for the entire history of our species, and the best we've come up with so far is the pickup artist theory. there's no fucking chance.

also if she's malicious, then welcome to hell - this is the exact mechanism women abuse to create pussywhipped/friendzoned men, but she has to be either an incredibly sinister bitch to do it intentionally, or incredibly fucking stupid/irresponsible/unwise to do it unintentionally. i doubt this is your case, but just something to think about. its also simply unattractive and a fucking miserable thing to do. imagine one of your irl friends started to adapt his entire behavior and personality just for the purpose of looking good in your eyes, even down to such minor things as being afraid to even bother you on facebook because you might think that he's interrupting/stalking. quite fucking creepy, right?

hope this helps

I'm no audiophile, so for me things either sound good or bad, and I don't care about anyone 'bad' ruining some genre. That being said I can't wrap my head around why there's any appreciation for 'meme' hiphop that's good because it's bad. It just seems shitty to me, but I guess it's because I'm narrow minded, or can't get behind 17 year old hip hoppers. To me half of this shit looks like white kids/blisters ripping off Kid Cudi/Wiz Khalifa, who aren't really good enough to be ripped off in the first place. Maybe I'm biased toward music that has depth and can't bring myself to stomach other music that feigns it. To each their own.
as i said, you should view it as entertainment rather than music
