People like you is exactly why we can't have nice things, always satisfied with whatever those shitfaced retards at Blizzard throw at you and always trying to look for this little drop of water in the ocean of turd. Dude seriously, imagine they go to work 8 hours a day 5 days a week for months and months and they can't even fix shit like hunter trap resist bug that was in the game for over 5 fucking years. Seriously, what the fuck are they doing in Bilzzard HQ? Playing cards all day? Playing "let's go troll pvp community exdee xD"? I swear I would (and 90% of AJ posters) do a better job balancing and fixing bugs in a fucking DAY than they do over a year. Stop feeding their bullshit so maybe there's a smallest chance they'll actually start doing something, anything.

It has absolutely nothing to do with being satisfied with what Blizzard gives me.  It has everything to do with perceiving reality as it is, instead of living in a childish fantasyland where the developers are stupid meanyheads who don't ever give you what you want.  It's about having a conversation as an adult.

When you say things like:
"imagine they go to work 8 hours a day 5 days a week for months and months and they can't even fix shit like hunter trap resist bug that was in the game for over 5 fucking years. Seriously, what the fuck are they doing in Bilzzard HQ? Playing cards all day?"
"dumb fucks"
etc...

You're avoiding the actual problem.  The problem with WoW PvP development is not that the developers are fucking idiots or lazy or incompetent.  The problem is that:

1. We are a small segment of the game.  Say that PvE/Raids/etc is roughly 20 times larger than arena.  What do you think that means for Blizzard when they are prioritizing fixes or new features?  Does a PvP issue of equal importance deserve to be fixed as fast as a PvE issue?  I think that Blizzard made some mistakes with the way they handled WoW as an esport/competitive game.  And god do I wish they would fix bugs quicker sometimes.  But the fact that I disagree with some of the decisions they made doesn't make them idiots or incompetent.

2. Developing games (or anything, really) of WoW's size is a fucking hard job.  I suspect you've never designed or created any large program in your life.  It's not easy--there are thousands (millions) of players complaining that they want this feature or that feature, that they need this thing fixed, or that this other thing should be entirely redesigned.  Your PvP feedback is part of a sea of (often bad) feedback that they have to wade through.  It's easy to sit there and say you could do a better job, but talk is cheap.  Maybe you would do a better job at balancing PvP, but possibly without considering the effects on one of the many other aspects of WoW.  There's absolutely room for Blizzard to improve in how they collect PvP feedback, (like, for example, if Blizzard had a team of high level PvPers which they could ask for feedback about changes) but only by suggesting/implementing actual changes will that happen--not by calling them names.

There are other issues too, like large bureaucracies being hard to control and slow moving (and I think the WoW team has certainly gotten larger over the years).  But mainly I think it comes down to these two things.  If you have a civil conversation about the problems and what could be done to solve them, I think you're more likely to get something accomplished than if you just call them idiots and write them off.

I don't see why there is a double standard, 25 man raids are not compensated for being much harder to organise than 10 man raids so why should RBGs be compensated...

If you actually believe he's a dumb fuck, I don't know what to say.  I wish people would stop jumping for the easy answers when the correct answer is more nuanced and harder to grasp.

I wish I could get the same cap from 3s as RBGs, but I understand that my player-type (hardcore arena) is not the main audience for the game.

Try to understand their decisions instead of simply writing them off as 'dumb fucks'.  It might get you further.

Good read, and for the first time I liked all his anwsers. Get the hate goggles off for a second, from what I can tell they're making it so TR naturally inflates along the season, it's not only about gear. The fact that you can upgrade your conquest gear with conquest points also means better queues for a longer period of time.

Wow.

This guy should really play the last expansion before commenting on it. And why is he comparing defensive dispel with purge. They're not the same at all. What an idiot.

And don't kid yourself, they only encourage discussion, but I guarantee you they won't change a thing based on this discussion. If anything does change, it'll be because the game development crew is finally done balancing farmville and can move on to revising pvp.

#3783068 "World of warcraft players are shit"

Posted Bonjourhihi on 29 September 2012 - 12:55 PM

I'm tired of hearing it. What idea do you have of World of Warcraft?

World of Warcraft was more than a game, he was a superstar in the world of video games, even today its still sitting proudly on the throne of his glory.

But more than the pinnacle of role-playing online, World of Warcraft was a community. World of Warcraft has been an experience, the experience of a lifetime. World of Warcraft has brought us closer. World of Warcraft has a soul, there a few years yet, his heart beat for the happiness of thousands of players. More than players. Companions. Friends. Brothers.

February 11, 2005. seven years ago, I was 14. About one o'clock in the morning, I installed the game and it was gone for years.
Years during I met people. Years of sharing and exchange. Years during I met friends. Friends with whom I toured Europe to experience a passion.

My first trips. Weeds. My first chicks. My first LAN. My first experiences. This is because of World of Warcraft.

Today, I'm at "the Mines" in Paris. Many brothers are found in HEC, the ISEL, INSA, law, INSEAD. Some of them are those who will makes games for your children. Bus, trams and metros.

Players of World of Warcraft are gold. They're the elite. They're an empirical injection of life and his values. They are my friends. They are my brothers.
They are real people.

Have you crossed Paris, Berlin, Stockholm, Madrid and Warsaw with your addicts friends ?
I don't think so.

Xandyn really did earn it more than anyone else. Most players thought they could sit at home playing video games and trading games to get R1, while Xandyn was out there forging passports and stealing identities.
