So is this up coming patch the end of the season or is this one of those changes that doesn't go live until a later hotfix? Hopefully we can find out from twitter or one of those other gay social media things.
This is worth re-subscribing to try it out for a month or two.
There was a time when my unwavering conviction that blizzard was the best gaming company in existance would let me shrug this off with a, "they know what they're doing." It's hard to keep the faith after failure followed by failure followed by failure.
I might be a crotchedy old man in my early 20s complaining about the good ol days, but it's just my opinion that cg cut scenes have ruined the entire gaming industry. They take an ungody amount of time and money to produce and remove all flexibility from the game designers. Designers can't quickly add new content because they need to wait for 90 different fucking cut scenes to be injected in the middle of fights for no reason with the players smashing their keyboards hoping to skip it as fast as possible.
WoW was considered to have shitty graphics when it was released. People were actually shocked at how bad its graphics were for a brand new game and yet zero fucks were given because it was fun. I think the gaming industry will stay in decline until this is figured out. I played the original 1-1.6 counter strike long after newer and better looking games were released because, again, a shinier product doesn't make it more fun. It was the same with diablo 2.
I don't care if they want to put titan on a newer engine with the goal of the most life like water rendering in any game. I just want titan to be fun.
I struggled a lot with trying to stay on a server with little to no pvpers. You build up a lot of friends being on a server for 4+ years, but when the only other 3-5 pvpers leave the server then you're kind of shit out of luck.
I tried arena early into the expansion and similar to cata I unsubscribed again after a couple months of arena. However, unlike cata, I think the game is going in a better direction.
If they add the cross server queue then I would pretty much instantly subscribe again. I really hope that feature is a high priority for blizzard and not a future expansion thing.
I remember the constant bribery and drama that went on for the first couple of rank 14s in vanilla. Hint it never mattered how much honor you farmed each week it only mattered that you got 1 more honor than the person below you.
I remember having 10+ teams for a single character and swapping between every single one of them to sell points each week.
I still don't get how blizzard fucked the game up that badly in cata.
