And congrats on being the only person I've seen to actually wear same season cape/tabard/title. Bet you rode the mount too. Even Mr. I-wear-my-mop-thundercleave-tabard-with-every-mog-3-seasons-later would be impressed.

Good game design : Spell reflect requires defensive stance ( obviously stancedancing doesn't incur gcd ), requires a weapon+a shield ( obviously weapswapping doesn't incur a gcd ).

A talent that modifies spell reflect allows you to INTERVENE a party member, and then you'll eat the next spell casted on them, sacrificing the reflect charge on yourself.

Bad game design : WoD spell reflect. WoD mass spell reflect.

I could write a million more examples, but it's all in vain, they literally don't give a shit  :lol:

Pruning itself isnt necessarily bad. What's bad about pruning, is when abilities that add counter play / flavor to the game are pruned.


Warlock curses / mana burn, warlock armors and dancing them

Warrior stance dancing

priest shadow word death to avoid cc / priest armors

mage shatter combos (made for interactive gameplay rather than just pressing ice nova twice and then releasing icicles)

Now the thing about it is.... Alot of these things are what the community complained about in the first place, which is part of why they were removed. Then they get removed and people complain about the lack of skill it takes once theyre removed.

Example of this: Player: It really sucks that i have to switch to Dstance, equip sword and board, just to use spell reflect or shield wall.. Blizzard solution: Hey guys, spell reflect now usable while in battle stance and no need to equip shield.. Just use your 2 hander to reflect a spell with your SHIELD... That you no longer need to equip.

I mean blizz might as well prune fear ward, grounding totem, sacrifice, etc. Lets prune everything that requires skill to use, adds counterplay to the game.. instead of removing warlocks / Dk talented trinket and other stupid stuff.

Also, this may not be everyones opinion, but i really cant stand fast paced games.. What i mean by this is... how in the current game, both teams have generally used 80% of their cds within the first 2 mins of game. I like short games, rather than the wotlk games that could last a half hour, but i dont like the meta where you run in and pop offensive cds and get defensive cds, then run back to the pillar.

The game is so scripted and there is much less diversity in arena than there has been in the past. Almost every comp is played the same regardless of whos playing it. Matchups are played the same too. There is just no flavor.

Again, this is all the opinion of a washed up rat from "the golden days".

#4562052 4 player roster in tournaments

?? (I didn't mean just 2014 in the last line, could have worded it better..)

2014 = 3 man roster = only druid+mage or lock+shaman combos (ie. play the bracket/seeding slot machine with the most fotm shit possible)
2015 = 4 man roster = many more combos (try to assemble a squad that can strategically counter everything)

Both are dumb in their own way

GCDTV should try a tourney with the 2 comp rule and see how the feedback goes from that. It definitely strikes a balance between the two ends.

I agree with pretty much everything you say. And i agree that the 2014 Blizzcon was the most stupid shit ever, with little to no diversity in the comps at all. (I think there was 1 Warrior there though)

But you forgot the most fundamental reason, that everyone is able to play 4-5 classes in WoD, and also why tournaments tend to be really boring to watch now with all the counter comping. The issue lies pretty deep in the game though.

And it's because the levelling / gearing / catchup system is so forgiving that it's made possible.
In the past you had to maintain some sort of "effort" (though the effort has been declining a bit with every expansion) on a character to have the best gear, sockets and enchants. Therefore it was considered a "main" character.

In WOD i could pretty much come back now as a player who didn't play since MOP, level from 90 to 100 on 1 day, and then grind gear like a maniac and be fully decked out within 1 week, and be somewhat competetive in arena. (Not sure how far into this season we are yet - but you get the point)

In the past you would need to grind Rep for shoulder enchants, money for weapon enchants, money for sockets, or get the mats yourself. Farm honor or even marks to buy a certain honor item. Then you would be on 1500-1600 rating in honor gear - less competetive than the last seasons arena gear. (And playing without resillience back then was not really an option)
An item was 1500-1750. So it took quite an effort to finally catch up and be competetive if you were playing a low geared alt.

Now - even with shit rating there is a catchup system that builds every week, and 0 rating is enough to buy 1 new item pr. week.
There is also no sockets and no enchants to build on, giving you less things to grind. (I'll take you back to WOTLK / Stormpeaks, where you had to do dailies for like 50 days before you had exhalted and could buy the best shoulder enchants). Those sort of commitments are completely gone now.

And because it's so easy, people run out of stuff to do really fast, giving them time to do these basic things on 1,2 or even 3 characters more. Therefore giving them every opportunity to multiclass and countercomp as fuck.

It really did show in WOD S1, where everyone started out as disc priests in December due to shields, and by the end of February, everyone was suddenly turned into a holy paladin because they got buffed.
