The strongbox system that they parised suck A*S! I farmed ashran every week sence release on two locks. Still havn't got the int/haste or the int/mastery trinket on eider. Makeing gear RNG based in pvp is nothing but retarded. I would have 30% instead of 23% haste if i'd gotten both last and current version of the int/haste. Those % makes alot of differance.
The fact that R-droods can choose a thing that makes roots not break on dmg is also retarded. That makes the root better then the old fear that barely ever breaked.
Splitting titles between factions is also dumb. Atleast based on how it all is now. Would have been a good thing 7 years ago tho. This will only resault in top player having one alt on horde aswell and still getting the top titles. Wich they should cause they are better. It will not make it easier to get titles. Maby challanger and rival but above that it will be the same ppl just with an alt. The problem itself is that all races got different racials. Makeing ally so much fking better. They could eider do it so that ie. Human/orc got same racial and so on. Or just simple remove the racials. Problem tho is that the PVP scene is so small now that if you go horde, sure you can get rival easier, but u wount have any1 to play with.. Having all pvpers on ally now still only occupies 2-3 servers in EU (outland, ravencrest and like one other).
Not sure how i feel about the honor lvl systems. To similar to the paragon lvl's in D3. Just an endless farming, wich sucks. Main reason why i once so many years ago abondoned PVE to only do pvp was cause it wasn't farming. It was engaging all the time. Tbh i think this will be a problem in the start. If a bad player with alot of time get high honour lvl he might beat a good player that only playes a few houers after work simply cause u dont have the time to keep up with the honor lvl in the start.
Kinda like that they give better gear to higher rated players. Thats a thing i miss. Remember back in s3 when my class mates were so jellus of me and my epic pvp shoulders compleeteing the set ^^ I hope it will not turn out that those who hardcore pve and suck at pvp will be able to win vs decent player who focus pvp just cause they can get higher ilvl gear. 2,5% might not seem much, but it could be.
I'll take a crack at some of the things you said.
First with the titles being split. It is a very good idea imo, it will cause a lot more people to go horde of not just having people create horde alts to make more teams on horde. The only thing they need to do to not make it exploitable is to erase your personal rating when you faction change. Back when there were teams guess what happened when you switched? Your team disappeared. So I don't see an issue with this really.
And with the racials... I hate when people say delete racials or make them mirrored. You guys bitch about the game being not diverse enough and then you say shit like this. They need to just remove the human racial and give them something else.
And with the ilvl difference I don't see how you are worried about people who do pve having a 2% advantage on you if you don't do your paragon levels. You realize how much of s percentage difference it is now between someone in honor gear and pvp gear? It's crazy high no where close to 2%.
And not sure why you are worried about the endless farming with paragon levels... You know you don't HAVE to do them right? You can get to level 30 or 50 whatever the end one is and then stop. And I think this will make bgs a lot better paired with the gear not being a big deal. Now when you go into bgs people will actually be able to use full with their new level 110 and hopefully with the ban waves on honorbuddy there will be actual people playing.
Just a quick comment for you seeing as how no one else feels like saying anything
