First of I'd like to say that this is not a thread to bash any players or bash the game itself, in any kind of way, I play it and I enjoy it.
People tend to say, it was so much better in Vanilla, things were balanced, things was better. They usually reffer to Vanilla and TBC in a state where the game was better. Well it doesn't take more than 5 min on youtube to see that these statements are false.
So far we've heard people saying
"MOP - Worst balance in PvP" "Warrior OP" "Hunter OP" "Mages OP" "Rogues are BAD" I'm not going to take a part into these as these are only going to be used as a example.
I did play Vanilla and all the expansions thereafter. Now I ask you. How was this game any more balanced than it is right now?
Warrior : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGBnj...ure=watch-vrec One shots multiple targets with AOE abilites and this within matters of seconds. Balanced?
Shaman : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I6eIe...eature=related (Globalized in a stun or a fear, within few seconds (1-2)) People nowadays complain at Warrior and Hunter beating stuff in 3-5 seconds standing still not moving, while these players actually try, nevertheless they fail.
Paladin : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J6bgepbZuo0 Not as amazing as the others, but yet they two shot them. Yes he got a legendary, but so what?
Hunter : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ue6gYLHqQpw Bad quality but yet, he beats them in a few shots. Balanced? Nope.
Rogue : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VlZ58oPN4XI Stunlocking and beating stuff in few seconds being balanced? Yes, he's skilled, I played on the same realm and admit alot of ganking from him. (Burning Blade early before free xfer due to overpopulation to grim batol)
Warrior : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ndR-ahMxbp0 Oh yeah Swifty. One of the rogues were undergeared but really, should he be able to wreck 3 of them? Haha.
Paladin : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwdv1...eature=related Two shotting people .. not fun.
Mage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B3FjQ360HKI Frost bolt + Icelance = 70% of your HP. Balanced? Haha.
Well, there's alot more fotage on youtube. I took the first videos I saw and linked them.
My point being. People get blinded, WoW wasn't balanced, it never was. It's never going to be but they're working on it. I'm not saying that the state it's currently at is the best but that it's alot more progressive than how it was. Stop complaing and give it some times. Blizzard has been doing this for quite some time. TBC better? Vanilla better? no thanks. What was better in those times was the community. That was better
