WoW's biggest problem is the vocal minority. I, for one, am glad they don't take all our ideas (even mine) on what might make the game "better"' and implement them. It's funny, because some of these ideas and suggestions were removed or added previously because players didn't like the state the game was in with or without them. And now we bitch about the decisions to reverse previous decisions, and so on, and so on. Heroics are too easy, heroics are too difficult, heroics are too easy. Good grief.
I do wish, however, that premade groups were more rewarding, and believe that heroic scenarios were a step in the right direction. So we've got solo, three player, five player, 10 and 25 instances. Would like to see something for a 7 or 8-man grouping next.
You seem to be under the impression that Blizzard is some sort of dictatorship and only one voice has any say in a decision. For all we know, or for all common sense is concerned, the department that oversees things like quests to raids to arenas (or the multiple departments for that matter) are made up of 20+ people. Do you really think as an example, 19 people are going to let their ideas die if only 1 of them wants to do something? You're barking mad.
Also calling Activision 'Activi$$$ion' like OH MY GOODNESS! A COMPANY THAT CARES FOR MONEY! I'm sure EA, Valve and the like are making games outta the kindness of their heart and i'm sure if they could spontaneously create games that were FREE they would do it. Why? because oh golly jee everyones so amazing apart from big bad Activision, who by the way i do not purchase or play any of their games, since yano, WoW isn't one of them.
Don't worry though, i'm sure the same people who on patch day when they experience an ounce of lag, or DC even once, will go to the customer support forums and spew vile hatred at them as if YOU, YOU PERSONALLY, DAVE OF CUSTOMER SUPPORT. YOU PERSONALLY RUINED MY DAY. I HATE YOU DAVE.
TL;DR If posts could be summed up in a sound effect, the OP's sound would be that hippo ass explosion sound.
i dont see the drama tbh. ive played since launch and the games in the best state its ever been in IMO. some server merges etc for low pop would be good but that aside, theres now so much to do in wow I dont see any cause for complaint.
What's black and white, and hated by all? Halfbreeds like me. We're too white, or not black enough.
This is why I liked the Kanrethad fight. If I screwed up, it was on me. If I died. My fault. I win when I should win by defeating my failure. That is without a doubt the best experience and way to teach a person a class. I left the Kanrethad fight with a confidence in my skill, but also humbled as I screwed up a LOT before I won.
The humility is the key. Everyone these days and in Vanilla, and raiding in general always has a 'tude of "I'm the greatest but these 9 mouth-breathers are holding me back."
You can lie and say "I don't think that" but everyone does at some point. The thing you need to realize? You are Mouthbreather #10. You are making as many screw ups as everyone else. Accept it and work to improve. Don't bitch about LFR being why you can't find a real raid group. YOU are the reason you can't.
