I feel VT needs a buff not damage wise or anything but about it just being dispelled like a UA affect or how flameshock had in cata. That or nerf warriors.

You would have to be extremely delusion to not agree with the FACT that people like to do the best with the least amount of work (aka. fotm rerolling). PvP games are insanely, insanely insanely popular, much more than PvE games by far. LoL is the most popular game and its completely PvP. MMO developers just have this convoluted view that PvP has to be intertwined into PvE, but then always pick PvE balance and game development first.

Guildwars 2 did a good job separating PvE and PvP and everyone was pretty damn happy until the developers took 9 months for the first update that was promised 1 month after launch.

I absolutely guarantee you that I, and many other people on here, could do a better job at making WoW PvP balanced and fun than the developers have.

I don't entirely disagree. I think part of, if not the single greatest problem, is the fact that WoW has attracted such a casual audience. LoL attracts people who want to play that specific game type against other players. WoW seems to attract more people who want to slay dragons, quest, use it as a chatroom etc... So devs have continually catered to that audience (who are their main cash crop). I think WoW is unique in that sense and may be incomparable for that reason.

This isn't true, companies just hire the wrong people and don't invest the time or money needed to do it. Most players are shit, and therefor love the fact that they can fotm all the time. Why balance the game when you can just fuck around and get retards to keep paying to reroll every 3 months?

The first part of that may be true, I honestly don't know. I've never played an MMO that had PvE and PvP coexist well. PvP draws the short end of the stick as it's not the selling point of the game to a large audience, most of the time. Apparently a raging neckbeared seized your keyboard upon the completion of your first sentence though so everything else is just cum drizzling stupidity.

im talking about killing the arena community not the game... but if you go through the bg forums archive its pretty obvious that it went from like 10 pages per night on bloodlust during wrath to 5 posts per year now :(

in season 8 there would be more posts on the bloodlust 3v3/2v2 threads in one night than all the junkies sections on this site get in a day easily.

then in cata it went down to one thread because everyone was gone. i stopped checking halfway through season 9 cause noone posted anymore

go on believing its just changing though...

It is just changing, your failure to accept that change doesn't somehow alter the definition of the word. And yes these forums are dying, but then again so are all internet forums really. Season 4 on this site was bigger than season 8, again it's just an evolution. This game has never been truly competitive, it never should have been, one cannot balance an mmo around PvP, we've known that since vanilla and it was absurd to ever think we could. The community is, in part, just growing up. I don't want to sit on ruin forums and yell at Galice anymore, or tell Jdawg he's complete shit and laugh about it. The game is stale by fact of its age alone.

cataclysm destroyed the feeling of sitting in bg forums f5ing on arenajunkies all night when it killed arena

Lol 3 years ago it was WoTLK that killed arena, now it's cata, tomorrow it'll be pandaria or whatever this thing is called. Games progress, nothing is killed, they just evolve. It's so boring watching people repeat the same exact cycle of disdain, x killed y, y killed z.
