balancing rollercoaster

rip moonkins

I'm fine with Moonkins getting nerfed, (tho this may be a bit overboard) but why aren't any of the other insane things getting touched as well?  :/

#4610062 Is pvp in WoW finally dead?

Posted by Nadagast on 09 October 2016 - 07:31 AM

why dont all the apes who complain every day on a forum of a game they havent played in years just crowd fund their own private server? why not be a part of your solution instead of just loggin into aj (a dead site) to complain that the year isn't 2009 anymore? lol.

Of course it'd be great if people were part of a solution to the problem.  But it's also totally and completely fine for people who are passionate about something to write words about that thing (hopefully reasonably smart and constructive words).  You don't have to read it, and you don't have to shit in their milkshake for no reason.

#4610023 Is pvp in WoW finally dead?

Posted by Nadagast on 09 October 2016 - 02:50 AM

Ya you're right, let's go live in the past so I can have some braindead retard wizard cleave with Bauble and DFO one shot me.


Games never been good balance wise. It happens in literally every single game ever created. Everybody thinks the older variants are better. Just what it is. Halo pros will say Halo 2/3 were the best versions of the game, COD MW2, League S3-4, cs will say 1.6 or source, etc. It's just how it works


Games change, life goes on. People sitting on Arenajunkies 6 years after wrath ended complaining. over half a decade later, get over it honestly.

Reread what I said, this is irrelevant to what I wrote.

#4609993 Is pvp in WoW finally dead?

Posted by Nadagast on 08 October 2016 - 11:22 PM

difference from wotlk to now is that there are actually better games out for pvp than arenas now. in wrath, league and csgo didn't even exist (or maybe league was in super early stages), and most of esports consisted of fps games like halo, cod etc... think it was what, starcraft and dota besides fps/wow? 


This is not accurate, there were lots of good esports around in 2010.  Maybe you weren't aware of them, and they weren't as big as they are now, esports was just smaller back then.  But CS esports has been around since ~2000, even though it wasn't Global Offensive.


There are more good f2p games around now, and that matters.  But I don't think it's true that WoW PvP has always been 'shit forever'--that strikes me as a lazy/unthinking opinion on the topic.

#4591285 Opinions on Legion

Posted by Nadagast on 15 July 2016 - 08:00 PM

I even heard some guy say that mana drains were actually a good thing and that he misses them. Those things were cancer incarnate, people are completely over the top with nostalgia.

I agree about the uniqueness of each class though, nowadays it feels like every class is more or less the same.

Do you see how these two statements are in conflict? Mana drains were one of the more unique ways of pressuring. Of course they are a pain to deal with, that's the point. Us players are our own worst enemy here, we are constantly asking for things that are uniquely annoying from other classes to be nerfed or removed--this process repeated over years leaves you with stale scripted gameplay.

Yes, Paladins were not great in TBC 3s. The solution to that is to improve Paladins.

Players should start to value fun over balance in our feedback.

#4590688 Opinions on Legion

Posted by Nadagast on 11 July 2016 - 07:50 PM

TBC was dominated by 4 individuals spec

Maybe this is an unpopular opinion, but I think the game is better when they aren't trying to make 30+ specs work in pvp. TBC probably didn't have enough specs viable, but it was far closer to an ideal state than the current setup is. It's better to have ~6-12 unique and distinguished specs viable than it is to try to force it with 30+ specs that can't be viable without extreme homogenization.

#4578018 On Pruning, PvP, and Our Goals for Legion

Posted by Nadagast on 22 April 2016 - 07:31 AM

How exactly can they write this:

  • Refocusing each spec around their core concepts
  • Reduced reliance on cooldowns, both offensive and defensive
While doing the complete opposite? Classes move even further away from their core concepts, and cooldown reliance is intensified both offensively and defensively in Legion.

Yea I agree with this. Their stated goals are mostly good, I just don't think they're actually doing them. At least not from my perspective...

#4574649 why exactly does legion afli suck?

Posted by Nadagast on 09 April 2016 - 05:50 AM

For me, Warlock got less fun with each expansion since Cata. No curses, fears that break quickly, weak dot pressure outside of cooldowns, destro is a shadow of its former self. All these and more (especially the awful state of pvp gameplay as a whole) contribute to Warlock being not fun to play compared to what it should be. I think Legion Warlock won't be that great because WoD Warlock isn't that great, and they're not doing much to bring back the good parts. One curse will not solve anything.

I don't agree with everything Cdew wants. I feel his video focused too much on bringing back exactly what existed in the past. But I would prefer to play that version of Warlock than the WoD or Legion versions.

#4574226 Nostalrius is gone.

Posted by Nadagast on 07 April 2016 - 06:21 PM

I don't understand the people who are happy that blizzard shut down Nostalrius. Do they just get off on other people's sadness?

Lots of people confuse what's legal with what's right.

#4570197 Non-damage buttons are missing

Posted by Nadagast on 17 March 2016 - 08:56 AM

I don't think this is a novel point, but I posted it at a place where maybe the developers will see it: http://us.battle.net...pic/20742944716

Support and/or discuss if you like. At this point, my hopes are low, but, shit, I love WoW arena, when it's good.

#4570050 No healers in 2v2 skirmish in Legion

Posted by Nadagast on 16 March 2016 - 01:55 AM

I don't care too much about 2s skirms, but I strongly agree with Vadren and Lolflay that it's entirely the current game's fault that healer/dps is shitty to play with/against in 2s. Dps/dps being competitive with healer/dps in 2s is a decent proxy for the health of the game, and it's been fucking atrocious since Cata.

Unfortunately, I think there's no going back at this point... I'm almost at the point where I give up and stop trying.

#4547022 DK rune change in Legion

Posted by Nadagast on 01 December 2015 - 06:41 AM

problem is we don't actually know anything about the change. Maybe runic power/rune regeneration is changing big time so you won't have 4 runes active at any given moment. Lets get real here, dk resource revamp has been needed since MoP when it just sorta became ok spam all buttons as often as possible because lol blood tap.

I think it's somewhat inaccurate to say that we don't know anything about the change. And if we want to have any hope of reversing this, the feedback needs to be very soon or it will probably be too late. If you had to bet on it... would you guess that they're adding some other hugely cool thing to compensate for this? Or that this is basically it?

I hope everyone focuses on the ruining of the awesome DK resource more than balance concerns. Us giving feedback that's super focused on balance is part of the reason classes feel so boring to play.
