    Misleading title, it really should read "I (OP), am the problem."

    Seriously, Blizzard will make this game what they feel is the best version of the game possible. Of course, they will listen to community feedback to make certain decisions, and the rest they will make on their own. Deal with it, the game is what it is, and believe it or not, World of Warcraft doesn't owe you anything.

    Now, obviously the endless stream of people complaining will never cease, this is just the nature of the industry, but it really is a drag. If you don't like WoW, then don't play it.

    By no means WoW can remain enjoyable with 300k subs considering the current server structure. Half of the existing realms are already unplayable on atleast one side because of underpopulation.

    These forums never fail to provide some of the most creepy and ridiculous people I've ever seen.

    I agree that ever since this guy took over, he basicly ruined the social aspect of this game and many more things. Look at it this way, while he is destroying WoW he at least isn't working on Titan.

    The problem I have is that I would of probably played Titan, but because Blizzard has let this individual run wild; I can't in good faith play their next MMO when there's a possibility he eventually may come over. I dealt with that on WoW, never again. When the current MMO runs it's course I'll just quit.



    That said though, and I may be playing Devil's Advocate here..


    Could any of us of done better? Sure I like to think I could of, but could we REALLY of done better? And also is this thread really going to solve anything? I just don't know if it's constructive. Criticism I'm all for giving, but the Thread Title feels empathically more like a rant post. :\

    Scapegoating is fun.

    And your opinion about Activision is also just wrong, as has been stated by Blizzard several times. They don't have any direct influence on the game's development at all. At least not in the world of reality.

    In the OP's world, Ghostcrawler is a tyrant forcing all of the changes of the game onto anybody, completely ignoring the teams of people they have, or any other lead developers. And Activision is directly telling Ghostcrawler what to do.

    It, of course, is just absolute nonsense.

    I could talk about the fact that time sinks have been in the game since Vanilla, or the faulty reasoning behind his LFR bitching. But with somebody who is just basically making things up to be upset about, its just not worth it.

    Misleading title, it really should read "I (OP), am the problem."
    This really hits the nail on the head. Basically since the OP posted this thread filled with fallacies and just incorrect information and has yet to post again in it. Leads me to think he has no desire to do anything other than bitch about a false perception.

    Because you have any influence in this at all, whatsoever, right?

    My god. Some people, man.

    I don't solely blame Ghostcrawler for the game's problems, he has evidently shown some common sense over the years but he and his team seem cannot seem to make up their minds on how to emulate the success of original WoW in today's day and age. I hope they at least learned that dailies are not the answer.

    My biggest problem with wow at the moment is that is changes way too much - not in the terms of new content but in the terms of one day i work out my class, all of it's abilities then the next day they alter the rotation, remove abilities, change others and add new ones. Usually this means i just have to readjust (shaman totems) but sometimes it means i don't enjoy the class anymore and have to change (shadow priest no longer heals+mana battery) >.<

    I hate that blizzard deciding to nerf a class has more of an impact on if i under or over perform than gearing up and learning my class -.-

    I was frankly kind of shocked to see no mention of Vanilla in this rant.

    GC has ruined the game for far too long, firing him won't fix all the damage he has done throughout the years. It would take long time to repair the game...

  14. #274
    you blame one person for the whole teams work, hes just a spokesman......you are the problem with wow, not him, its crying players who do nothing but whine who ruin this game. you can always stop playing but then what would you complain about....some life you live, enjoy it kid

    Sounds like every other "I don't like the game but think its my right to complain about things that the majority like" post. Nothing to see here.
    If we didn't just lose millions of players I'd agree with you, but something is wrong with the game and anyone's guess is just as good as the next persons.

    So you're just blowing smoke.

    OP I agree with your post 110%! It's about time someone else said it. However GC never did know wtf he was doing. He's a freaking Marine Biologist turned game designer..... Sure he worked on a few PC games..... That still doesn't make him a good fit for the position. While it's not only his fault.... Focusing a MMO game on casuals.....the people most likely to leave and never return. It's never worked and it's never going too. You focus on the players really playing the game and focusing on adding more new players like them.

    Instead we now have World of Derpcraft.

    Back in BC you didn't have LFR or LFD. Sure it took some time to find groups and guilds. However it was a journey and you made friends along the way. You had guilds progressing threw all different stages of the game. Everyone had a place. You got what you earned and you had fun at it. I'm still with the same 30 people I played with back in BC. I promise they will all agree.

    I want WoW set back to BC standards. Keep the pet battles. Hell even keep LFD ( However make them find and complete the instance. Before ever being aloud to queue up for it.) Get rid of CRZ, LRF, and be done with it. Sure some people will leave. However you'll be left with a good strong player base to rebuild off of.

    World of Derpcraft is what I call your and the OP's opening post.
    Why? Go ahead and deliver hard proof of what in the game is GC's direct responsibility and decision. And as long as you cannot provide that, all you do is accusing without anything to back it up.
    Your knowledge of business structure of a company the size of Blizzard is actually amazingly non existent.

    If you guys had any clue whatsoever, you'd criticize these men:
    Michael Morhaime (president and co-founder)
    Frank Pearce (vice president and co-founder)
    Rob Pardo (Chief Creative Officer)
    Chris Metzen (senior vice president of Story and Franchise Development)

    THOSE are the guys who make the key decisions. They are the ones who really have the say about what's going on and what not. GC is a small figure.. He's a step or two above a supervisor.

    You realize the developers who made the game it was in BC are the same as now, right?

    You guys need to understand something: the game was never supposed to last this long and have this many players.

    Because of that, the game had to evolve to CURRENT MARKET standards.

    But I know you'll just respond to my post saying how I'm wrong and yada yada.

    That's what you get when you try reason with a brick wall unfortunately.

    So you're complaining, and not actually coming up with any ideas on how to make the game better?
