What Happened in Hearthstone? Taking a Look Back at November 6 - 12

Upcoming World PvP Changes - 11/13/2017
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
With this week’s maintenance, we’ll be applying some hotfixes intended to slow down damage in world PvP:

  • Non-tank specializations now take 40% less damage from enemy players while engaged in world PvP
  • We have reduced the PvP effectiveness of a number of trinkets and Legion Legendaries that contributed to excessive burst damage:

Our intent with these changes is to reduce the amount of initial burst damage dealt by players in world PvP, especially when using certain legendary items or trinkets, giving the player being attacked more opportunity to react. While we want to maintain the “anything goes” nature of world PvP in Legion, we do want you to have at least some chance to retaliate, even when caught by surprise.

    And you sound like an elitist, immature child who cannot disagree with someone like an adult, but instead,
    act like the "kind of player" who people actively avoid playing with.

    You are the kind of people who will never enable PvP in BfA no matter how balanced it is. What the chimps want is having the same ammount of stats and shit with their shit gear as someone with high-end. Thats retarded of course and they misunderstand what Blizzard wants with this change which is good geared players not being able to oneshot other good geared people.
    For someone who throws insults around so much, especially the word "chimp", your reasoning at the end is
    unsurprisingly rather "less than human-evolution" (i.e. Chimp-like).

    "Good geared" players are not the only ones getting one-shot. Most people do the towers and other pvp
    dailies because they're easy pvp exp that they can do without necessarily being forced to pvp with people.

    Its just another option. Which there's nothing wrong with. However, it is very hard to go about completing
    those towers and battles without getting smacked over the head and instantly killed, especially if you're
    a fresh lvl 110, or hell, even with an ilvl of over 900 and still getting destroyed by certain classes and
    their legendaries? Since not every legendary is even close to being the same in buffing abilities and the
    damage they do, its quite unfair. I mean ffs, a Guardian Druid with the right legendaries could take a
    whole ten man and not die. That's horribly unbalanced. Its doesn't take a "chimp" to figure that out.

    Yeahhhh some people can't get over the fact that oneshotting someone without him having any chance at all is not fun nor is it balanced.

    Players weren't as overgeared as nowadays so this change wasn't necessary earlier.
    As a warrior tank with ilvl 930+ I can easily nuke 2-3 damage dealers at once which wasn't possible with Nighthold gear.

    Yup proved me point! Thanks!

    Sssssh, we're "chimps" for thinking so dude.

    Kinda sad that no mod has taken care of that obvious flame post though. Tsk, tsk.

Come on dude, you can't be that naive to think that is a "solution". This game is so unbalanced when it comes to PvP it ain't even fun. You're either demolishing your opponent or getting destroyed yourself, there is barely anything in between.
    no i mean ban flying mounts during murloc freedom/brakeneck brawl in those areas, like they did with black rook rumble, trying to pvp in that area is hard since every1 just sits on their flying m mounts and afks in grps and its even worse when all the mobs are dead and take ages to spawn

    People would cry too much if this happened now but next expansion they need to go back to legendaries simply not functioning in PvP, they have high stats, that's enough.
    Seems to me it is the pvpers that spend no time seeking end game gear that want to be able to tear down players that have, and should accordingly be more powerful, that are butthurt and eliciting change. At the end of the day It really will not effect me other than the humor it brings because removing the bonuses and power that I have earned will merely also remove any chance of me flagging so that you can jump around in circles around me flapping your arms wildly demonstrating your uber skill at doing so.

    it is easily as fair as being stun locked to death, or even better having a dps player chew right through any tankiness you have built up.
