    This is Horse shit. Everybody spam them with hate mail.


    Just kidding. I'm gonna REALLY miss their guides, but I respect alex and lars a lot, so i hope what ever direction they chose to go in, it's better for them, and more enjoyable for every one around

    Thanks op, you just made my day even shittier.

    Jk, but i really loved those guides. They had a "unique" feel to them, unlike let's say tankspot's guides. But in the end, i still understand why they did this.

    kind of sad their guides were good but they really should have been tagged that they had a fairly high Ilevel.

    Also the more people that help out at icy veins the faster the guides go out. I know that myself, I try to give them information.

    Ahhh yeah! Thing is... I wouldn't watch them if I wouldn't be able to do it on my second monitor (and do something on the main one in the meantime). They just take too long.

    I am very exited for their new content, and would love to have them as a gaming channel. I am sad to see their guides gone though; I hope they'll still make their "Raid in 60 sec" guide and such. Maybe just the endboss on hc for a guide? I would be sad to see them cut off for guides COMPLETELY! Or even better: make a "How to not kill X boss" guide. Not for every boss, but for some. I, personally, would like to see more of fun videos!

    Oh and they should change their channelname! The Fatscast
    And then they should make a minecraft let's play. (I miss that game - windows 8 + drivers made it not work)

    I don't think I've ever been able to glean a useful thing from Icy Veins, not to sound pretentious or anything. The last guide I read from Icyveins basically featured a copy paste job from the dungeon journal.

    I watched their videos and I don't even raid competitively. They were fun to watch and listen to. Hopefully they'll have some more varied content now.
    Hey, remember when I dropped my keys and you thought the phone was ringing?

    You should change your signature to read "Sha of bitterly Entitled".

    PVP is just a little bit more straight forward than PVE. Hell, most of the time in PVP you can literally spam any button you want and do it effectively. Honestly, I wish there were more "How to battle ground" guides, or if they do exist, I wish EVERYBODY who sets foot in a battleground was forced to watch them first.

    I mean, the rules are simple. Pointy end goes into the other man, capture the flag, get the points, steal the base. It's not complicated. Sure High level PVP is complicated, but all the information you need to do that is in a tool tip, the rest is in your player skill. For PVE it's different. You need analysis tools, and yes, procedural guides can be effective.

    I'm happy for you that you don't need guides to PVP, some players I am sure would benefit from seeing a "Tips and tricks to pvp in 5.2 for [Yourclassgoeshere]". So just because you don't need them, doesn't mean they aren't useful.

    Bad? Absolutely not. The best? Surely not. Not sure why you bothered to post, if all you wanted to do is bash them for their effort.

    u dont need guides for PVE either cos its so damn easy if somethings hard PVE players cry to blizzard and they nerf the shit and dnt say do heroics cos not many guilds run heroic raids anymore, PVE is just button spamming fuck i went on a guild run to TOT 10 normal and i was eating my dinner whilst playing, rated PVP is alot harder than what PVE will ever be the hardest PVE was in classic and BC, wont be long before you PVE heroes want your own personal GM to give you OP buffs in raids n shit

    Regardless of how you play or your progression, for the casual raiding community as a whole they were probably helpful.

    Obviously a lot of us push content that does not have any guide available but to the ones who don't but still progress heroics, they surely will miss them.

    Also the lfr community. They were basically the people who decided which tactics are being used in lfr; for example magaera and not killing blue.

    EDIT: Derp.. I ment blue

    only around 800-900 guilds in the west were pushing content faster than they were. No matter how much I disliked parts of their guides there normal mode guides got around 90k views which is helping a fair portion
