Ye balance was awful, but you could succeed as ANY spec ( alright, boomkins excluded, outside of those few lunatics that played boomkin RMD and succeeded ) in the game AND have fun with it AS LONG as you played properly and had good teammates. As long as you can make shit work, I don't give a fuck about the game in general. Yes, TBC was fun because it was new etc etc, but the same thing applies for EVERY SINGLE EXPANSION so far.

I had major fun when every single expansion got released, and only two expansions out of those 6 managed to keep sub numbers stable ( and rising ). Coincidence? I think not, ESPECIALLY when it came to WoTLK because during WoTLK all the "old guard" started quitting the game, yet game didn't experience a plummet of subnumers, only a rise. Opinion of general populace doesn't really matter in some things ( Justin Bieber fans - what the fucking fuck, seriously ? ), but in terms of games, outside of shit like CoD, player population numbers DO NOT LIE.


Seriously, TBC&WoTLK were marvelous. I don't care about the dumb mechanics that were in place at the time ( I consider shit like mass spell reflect ten times dumber than viper sting btw ), WoW was never about balance - as long as every spec wasn't a steaming pile of hot shit, the game was always fine&fun. Like, take S8 for example - majority of specs were broken OP yet everything seemed to cancel each other out. As for TBC, ye you had 4 amazing specs ( SL/SL, resto druids, sub rogues, warrs ), but nobody forced you to play shit that contained a druid+one of those 3 DPS classes ( and then have 1hr+ long games ). The game was most certainly NOT slow if you played DPS oriented comps in 2s ( and most of them were r1 viable )  - https://www.youtube....h?v=Fv_CJDCmGO8 . Hell even DPS/healer wasn't slow if you played the right comps - https://www.youtube....h?v=6ir96CnZ-NM ( I'm linking Shadow pvp videos because they first come to mind )


I'm done with gaming in general, I'm already in years when I should focus purely on pursuing career and other shit ( + I don't really get any joy out of gaming anymore ), but you can bet I'd play the living shit out of legacy TBC if they ever release it. I'd think really hard about vanilla/WoTLK. Cata+? I pity anyone who'd ever came to idea to release Cata/MoP/etc legacies. They'd have to clone Jaime to keep those servers populated.

All I'm going to say is that people who smacktalk TBC/WoTLK are also the people with titles in Cata/MoP/WoD, all 3 of which were infinitely more terrible than the aformentioned two.

This game was never balanced and will NEVER be balanced until we're playing League of Legends with WoW classes/specs. What measures how good this game is is how fun it is to play. The only thing post WoTLK that came close to the fun level of S8/S7/S2/S3 was S15, and even S15 wasn't nearly as fun as those seasons I've listed.

As for TBC, I don't care if you were a Jimfuckingpaladin who was getting manadrained by hunters or Retardboomkin who couldn't play the game because his spec, TBC was the golden age of this game. I could log on EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. and have something to do. I wanted world pvp? Okay I flew up to Elemental Plateau or went to Nagrand ring and ganked some alliance. If they overwhelmed me I called friends. They called their friends. Ensue hourlong+ battles. I could 2v2/3v3/5v5 for hours without the queues ever getting bad ( okay, 5s later during the night or earlier during the day, but 2v2 and 3v3 queues were always instant ). Raiding actually took time to do as well, no bullshit "oh look, new tier is out, let's release complimentary gear  WoTLK started to kill community but at least arena community was still thriving ( until Cataclysm killed it ).


Inb4 Legion subs drop even below WoD and then they just release Sargeras as last raid and call it quits.

There's a school for kids with special needs in my neighbourhood. PokeGym is located directly on top of said school. I took it over a couple of times. While I was waiting for the bus ( bus stop is right across the schools yard ), I witnessed 2 kids having a cry/rage tantrum because someone keeps taking their gym. 10/10 would play again.

Other than that, trash game.

I'm near a med pack. I turn around and S towards medpack, aiming against the door, ready to attack whoever comes near. McCree shows up at the door, I left click and start attacking him. I die without picking up the med pack, and on killcam I see McCree flashbanging and M2ing me without my M1's even registering on his screen before I died, even though on my end they went off.

Most of the time the tick issue really doesn't matter ( especially when it plays into your own favor ), but no AAA title from a company like Blizzard should settle for anything less than 60tick, in a FPS title out of all the things. It feels sluggish and unreliable.

Your 7.8k posts on AJ being negative combined with  your "humble" know-it-all attitude tells me this is a lie

:rolleyes: because having a lot of posts on a forum that exists since 2006 and shittalking WoW/idiots that frequent this community/Blizzard confirms anything you're implying :rolleyes:

call ur bank /credit card company should be refunded easily if you really insist

mnah, 40 euros are nothing, it's more about their mentality, not wanting to refund something 2 days after its been purchased

Theres literally a counter to everything in Overwatch i don't get why people cry about random shit in the game when theres a way to stop it pretty easily

There really isn't a counter to EVERYTHING, even in 6 premade vs 6 premade games where everyone's at least got it a bit figured out. Let's say King's Row attack, first checkpoint is so fucking easily dominated by 2x Winston/2x McCree/2x support that it's unreal. But then again, you should win payload 9/10 times considering it's so attacker favored so I guess my argument doesn't matter.

But in general, ranked is going to revolve around Q fights and in that situation, champs with "bad" ults aren't even going to matter at all ( like, after McCree gets nerfed ( which he will because its such a tool champ atm ), unless it's an out-in-the-open map, he'll never be brought to competitive without a Lucio speedboosting him during High Noon ( yeah you can sidejump and toggle ult and hope for the best, but a lot of time people who aren't retarded know how to LoS ), and even then he's going to be meh - in that situation, you'll always want to bring a champ with a GUARANTEED effect ult ).

My concern/argument is that Blizzard will fail to balance as they always do. I've never played a Blizzard game which had any resemblance of balance whatsoever, even Starcraft.

Are those stupid words required to enjoy a game? Or are we lesser players if we enjoy something "less skilled"

It's a matter of perspective, obviously. However, being an elitist about some things isn't bad at all in my opinion. When you hold things to a standard, you grow.
