    "Mop feels like Cata 2.0 that's just my option tho" This statement has nothing to do with personal raid progression

    Second statement was

    "They promised faster content patchs. Seems faster content patch = less content" Once again This statement has nothing to do with personal raid progression


    Go try to straw man someone else

    Probably because you are not Blizzard.

    I would personally like TBC model, but it's honestly bad idea for majority of players (The non-raiders).

    The player base has changed - If you tell people to run Kara/Mag/Grull for 2 years unlike the past they would quit

    why anyone thinks this is a valid defence I'm not sure. It's neither pro or contra dungeons. It's pro Blizzard and an easy way for you people to dismiss valid criticism. Blizzard is the luckiest company on the face of the planet. Their supporters are fanatic.

    On an individual scale, this was not the case. You'd have to be extravagantly unlucky or woefully unambitious to find yourself running only T4 content a year after you started raiding. Or maybe the stubborn guild leader of a failing stepping stone guild.

    heres my criticism.

    1) they rehashed TWO dungeons for the MoP launch. that's already less time invested in original content.

    2) they still arent making new dungeons.

    now, how have we gone from something like burning crusade, with many original dungeons, to MoP that had all of I think 4 dungeons to do while levelling? it got incredibly repetitive.

    so here is your 5.2 content: 1 massive raid, and more dailies. after people finish their raiding for the week, what reason is there to log on? and how are people supposed to catch up? LFR? my lock alt has been doing lfr for nearly a month and has a cloak/neck to show for it. and a lot of bags of gold.

    LFR absolutely should not be the catch up method. and with a 1000 valor cap, valor isnt a quick method either.

  8. #588
    Who the fuck wants a new dungeon. They are just micro LFRs, why not run the LFR get the better gear and be done with it. See the story progression and get the better gear without doing some 5 boss dungeon in AoE mode just to get mid level gear. Most people will be ilevel 480 to 490 once 5.2 gets here, that is just from LFR based on the ability to upgrade all epics twice to +8 item levels. The new LFR will require 480 or 490 and then the cycle begins again. Thanks to upgrade and LFR the 5 man has an even smaller niche now. They had to invent time trials to get people to keep doing them. Its the BC gear progression ladder with LFR and Upgrades to speed up the process and make gearing alts easier.

    BC:
    5mans -> H5mans ->Kara/Gruul -> 25man raiding
    This was until sunwell when 1 5man was added and Points/badge vendors(the way they thought of bridging the gap; new 5man and point(badge at the time vendor)

    Wrath
    5mans -> H5mans/point gear -> Raid -> New 5mans/point gear -> Raid; Repeat until finished. This was the model used, I believe between Naxx/OS/Eye and Ulduar there were no new five mans, BUT there was new point vendor gear. Can't remember

    Cata
    H5mans/points -> Raid -> New 5mans-> New 5mans/Points/Raid -> New 5mans/Points/LFR/Raid - This model has a ton of overlap especially at the end so they have condensed it. To a mesh between the Wrath Cata line and the BC/Vanilla line to condense the work or at least possibly spread it out. We can't know for sure because we haven't seen the entire MoP Time line.

    MoP
    5mans->H5mans->LFR/points-> Raid/upgrades -> new LFR->Raid/upgrades - This model builds and allows catch up through the LFR and Upgrades to the items obtainable through Valor. Those upgrades should get you close to the new LFR level. By the end of the expansion you will probably be able to run LFR only to get your Valor cap to increase the gear up speed. We could easily see a set of new 5 mans in the 5.3 patch to help bridge the gap. It doles out a lot of content at a lot of levels and ways to upgrade gear. 5mans aren't actually needed that much in this model, beyond just content and storytelling purposes after their initial run. I would think we'll see a rehash and maybe 1 new 5 man before this expansion ends. Lots more scenarios though for sure. I feel like they are letting the gear nuts go LFR and using scenarios as a replacement to 5mans for the crowd that likes small groups and challenge mode for the people who love 5mans. Its definitely a switch but the pattern of past expansions has foretold the death of the 5man for a long time.

    Also, 5.2 is a lot more than a raid and daily quest hub. New pvp season, tons of stuff for the farm, and I wouldn't be surprised if we got some new scenarios. 5mans are not really the time filler people are trying to make them out to be.
    I didn't mess with a vanilla line because most of you don't remember and it wasn't some kick ass model...basically the BC model with no point gear, 10(short lived)/20/40 man raids, quest epics all kinds of shit.

    Or a low population server, where you had 5 or 6 possible raiding guilds beyond T4.

    tbh I feel like 5 mans dont offer the same value for the development effort they require.

    yes you will probably see them again with all your alts. But the replayability is much lower and if the dungeon has to be designed from the ground up I just dont see how it's worth it. I'd rather get 1 extra raid instead of a whole bunch of 5-mans.

    I am all in favor of recycling old dungeons though. I want to see Maraudon and dire maul remade next :-)

  10. #590
    it is really stupid that theres no new dungeons.. the current ones are getting really stale. even 1 or 2 new ones would be quite decent.. they dont even need any thought into them just some 494 or so ilvl loot... maybe 500 since the new raids are 515 i guess.

    You can't just throw money around and poof suddenly have quality employees who you know will produce solid work. What happens if they invest a ton of money into some new programmers who come back with stuff Blizz doesn't like ? Then they've wasted time and money they can't get back.

    rng is rng ... same could happen with 5-players, or with normal/heroic raids.

    In any event, I imagine they are hoping more LFR-only players start trying their hand at normal modes. I think this will be better for the game / community overall, than to toss in some 5-players immediately that invalidate any need to work on t14. Those will come with 5.3, which extends the life of t14 -- addressing a major, consistent complaint by the playerbase.

    Example.

    Ulduar came out in 3.1, a giant raid with 12 bosses. No dungeon added. The barrier of entry for Ulduar was relatively low still, especially fresh out of Naxx. Even if you skipped Naxx, you could go into Ulduar with dungeon heroics gear and do decently (in fact, a guild did Ulduar in full blues while it was still relevant to prove the 'skill > gear' point).

    3.2 added a new dungeon which dropped Ulduar 10-man equivalent gear. This was to even up the barrier of entry for new lvl 80's to get into Trials of the Crusader. Trials of the Champion (dungeon) still had an ilvl requirement though, so you needed to run the regular heroics too. This dungeon was added to bridge new players coming back to WoW to raid relevant content.

    LFR is not a bridge for content. LFR is a raid mode that parallels normal/heroic raids with a lower entry level for casual players. As the tiers get raised, the ilvl requirements for LFR will go up, and fresh 90's will have little way of getting gear to catch up and get into new raids (or LFR). That's what new dungeons are there for. People will not be expected to run old raids from 2-3 patches ago to catch up to current content.
    WotLK also had 4 tiers of raiding, where MoP will most likely only have 3. Even if there is a wider gap when they release the Siege of Orgrimmar, I'm still convinced that LFR's purpose is also to guide people through the tiers of raiding, so that you have that original progression. What would happen if they release 5 mans with Siege of Orgrimmar that give gear to bridge the content? People wouid run the old raids in LFR less and less. Then the whole idea of progression just falls apart. People will not progress through the actual raids like intended, they will go back to how it was in WotLK and Cata. Which I think wasn't such a bad thing, but I don't think Blizzard will go for that.

    You have absolutely no idea about the specifics of Blizzard's employment nor man hours they are spending on this raid, nor how many it takes to make new 5mans. All you have is some vague opinion that has ONE basis: I want more. You'd be better qualified critiquing the lunch schedule of the President.

    This is exactly what they promised, smaller more frequent content patches. And if you assumed that each content patch meant another raid tier, then that was dumb of you.

    you are a small minority and you expect them to cater to you? I don't see the point in doing scenarios either as they are a waste of resources.

    I'm not going to speak for the person you quoted, but for me part, what it has to do with your statements is that you're complaining about content patches being smaller even though you haven't even done all the raiding that are currently offered in normal mode. So either a) you're just jumping on the bandwagon, demanding more content that you have no intention of completing or b) consider the tier completed once you've downed it all on LFR.

    I disagree, I enjoy them and I'm sure there are plenty of people who do. There's nothing wasteful about having a diverse variety of pve instance-type content. I have not pvp'd at all this expansion, but I wouldn't call that a waste of resources.

    People doing 5mans are a minority? If anything raiders are a minority.

    I don't raid, do 5 mans, or do scenarios or dailies. I randomly PVP and do the LFR. Who runs five mans because they are fun? That's like the huge flop that challenge modes have turned out to be.

    5mans generally are fun to me. The problem for me is to do something over and over again to the point where it bores me. Then I just stop. The same problem exists with LFR, however. There are still more people doing 5mans than doing raids. I'm sure you did 5mans. How else did you get the gear to get into LFR.
