#4629358 Can we make Blizzard listen somehow?

Posted by ROKMODE on 28 February 2017 - 12:01 PM

Is Blizzard listening yet?

Arenajunkies community vs blizzard listening can best be visualized by those playground structures that have the fake listening phones. Are there variants of these that actually work????? All the ones I used growing up didn't work.

 

At first, being the the child that you are, you will try to talk into it and think that the person on the other end is having an amplified version of your voice

Then you realize it doesn't work for shit, and you can't figure out what the fuck the point of it is when it doesn't do anything, and you realize that you are playing a minigame aspect of a great PVE game run by a team of developers who are on the other end of that play structure

#4628671 Can we make Blizzard listen somehow?

Posted by ROKMODE on 23 February 2017 - 04:59 AM

Cata is that weird expansion where I never understood why anybody liked it. As someone who didn't play MOP, my uninformed spectator POV felt that it was way too chaotic and full of superfluous bullshit (seriously 90000 pets and special aoe effects on the screen), but it looked mildly interesting. BC definitely had an appeal to it as well, even though it was easily the most unbalanced PVP x-pac ever; it was very fundamentals based and required very solid consistent pressure.

 

But...

 

 

Cataclysm was one of the most frustrating experiences I've had with any video game ever. It was definitely playable, but it was so anti-fun. From the low healing values, to the absurd number of interrupts, to the god damn aids play style it promoted. Even though I got to 2700 during cata before I quit, every single goddamn match just made me want to say FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK. Why the fuck is this DK able to self-sustain indefinitely. Why is this rogue able to vanish at 1% health and come back at 99% from recuperate. Just everything... WHY WHY WHY?

 

Then again, I'd probably feel the same way about MOP and WOD if I had actually played them 

 

 

 

 

PS: The PVP design has been completely experimental since Cataclysm.

Since we are talking about nostalgic game design. I actually fucking hate BC arena. I think its so unbelievably unbalanced, and people pretend it had any semblance of balance because they played it back when 90% of players backpeddled. I also hate the ridiculously broken drain mechanics and how slow the game feels. That being said, every single player who played BC and WOTLK can testify that the game design of arena has been entirely experimental ever since Mid Cataclysm came out.

 

During cata, they completely rewrote the fundamentals of arena and changed like half the mechanics in the game. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but they rewrote a lot of the things that people actually liked. Even though BC and WOTLK had INCREDIBLY different paces, they still felt like the same game. Then with MOP, they rewrote the rules again while keeping the things that made cataclysm bad and subsequently rewrote them entirely again for WOD and Legion. 

 

Y'all are trying to take this game seriously still, but Blizzard has been completely fucking around and just doing shit since Cataclysm.

#4603786 Legion

Posted by ROKMODE on 10 September 2016 - 03:00 AM

I've been playing Legion pretty hardcore since release and I'm still enjoying it.

If you want nothing but PvP then you're in for a rough time, but it's literally always been that way.

dunno
i ran around with 5 gold in tbc and wrath and did nothing but arena, bg, and duel in durotar and i had a pretty swell time

#4602145 Legion is worst than WoD

Posted by ROKMODE on 01 September 2016 - 07:50 AM

You forget to say that when your pet was alive, you hated him with a burning passion. You claimed that he was too fast, that everybody could have one, and even the pets who had never fight against another one were bigger.
During this time, you only mourned the previous one, the one who was never "your" pet because you were born after the day your parents took him, the one you remembered as being more slow, a little reserved because he was hiding everywhere, sometimes really stunning and draining your joy, but you had lots of time to recuperate.

this is a needlessly pedantic and verbose way of saying "wotlk is the best and I'm a filthy racist"

#4601005 A dismaying set of affairs has forced my hand.

Posted by ROKMODE on 25 August 2016 - 06:04 PM

there are certainly many turns for the worse


the most significant was probably during the transition to Cata when AJ was integrated into this new Curse site. Not only did we lose our sick ass logo at the top, but we also lost like 2/3 of the poster base, and all the BG threads died overnight. This was only exasperated by removing BG queues altogether. There was an usual spike in activity during the infamous xandyn incident, but that was an anomaly for sure. Somehow during the last 2 expansions, most US posters (and probably pvpers) seemed to have quit the game, while the lowest of the lowest EU scum continue to post on this site.

btw I recognize that I am a useless poster as well but thats my 2c anyway

random sitenote

this new trend of calling everything and anyone autistic is really annoying


it's the new "cancer" and "aids"

It's a substitute for any insults that require any actual creativity. Pretty sure half the people who use the word super liberally don't even know what it implies.
