In Topic: Hey, 2015 Blizz - meet yourselves from the past

21 May 2015 - 02:35 PM

certainly the devs are professionally incompetent and could not survive in an industry where you are accountable in any way for your results, but they are only half of the issue

i know i've been facetiously posting captioned pictures of bobby kotick since wrath, but at this point you can perform a microtransaction for everything but winning through the client today: you can buy mounts, pets, cosmetics, max level characters, and gold.  first, grant that given the structural direction of the game, the parameters the devs operate under must be limited

now consider that blizzard bled over 25% of their subscribers in a single quarter and proceeded to ban hundreds of thousands a few weeks after the reporting of that number.  the devs will be more and more limited as the ship continues to sink faster.  their main function will be to sustain this game on limited resources while every penny is drained out of the remaining users that remain loyal to this now lifeless game

attaching this and an actual picture of bobby kotick

the "wow killer" that we have been hearing about for eight years, which wasn't warhammer online, age of conan, eq2, guild wars 2, swtor, aion, rift, or whatever else flopped might just be blizzard crushing itself trying to squeeze whatever money is left out of people who hope the game can rebound as its parent company collapses

In Topic: Has WoW PvP ever been balanced?

19 May 2015 - 06:55 PM

you're eliciting a lot of opinions from different sources without defining your terms

each expansion has had pros and cons, each of which many of the people in this thread would try to tell you are and are not representative of "balance"

some people would say that a comp with a prot warrior in early wrath having a 50% win ratio against another top comp constitutes balance.  i'd argue that any situation where an early wrath prot warrior has a chance to win against me is inherently imbalanced

i would extend this to a lesser extent to death knights, prot paladins of the same period, elemental shamans in season 13, most of the classes with legendaries when they were allowed, bm hunters ever, etc.
