    Loot RNG
    We realize that sometimes RNG can be frustrating. I’m just not sure how beneficial it would be for the game and its longevity, if all of a sudden RNG started being “smart” and avoiding giving out items that are either useless or redundant to players.

    “Smart loot” is great for quests and lower level content, but messing around with the randomness of loot attribution in high-end content is, in my opinion, something that would only be detrimental to the game.

    LFR already gives out loot that is based on spec, that’s as far as we are willing to go with “smart” RNG in such environments, also, that only happens because of the nature of that specific loot system.
    From a design standpoint, it’s perfectly ok for loot not always being desirable. Rarity is exciting. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
    This shows me how grossly out of touch with the average player who doesn't "just raid" they're becoming. I quit tanking LFR's when I got 4 of the exact same drop out of over 20 runs and that was considered "working as intended". The system is garbage and sadly those of us who quit over this crap, don't have an avenue to express that to them. I wish I was going to Blizzcon still, if only to find this guy and ask "Do you even play this game? Have you had to put up with your own system?"

    Well, he did say "In my opinion"

    It was more of a sardonic wish on my end.

    I have always been bothered by Blizzard for not having an internal policy stating "Hey, if you're going to chime in as a player... not as an official developer standpoint, then log in without your tag", like other game communities.

    All I'm saying is, there's no reason to put out a kill video with a zoomed in UI and the edges blurred out this long after a kill and after other kill videos have been released. Paragon typically puts out good shit, I just didn't think this was as good.

    The biggest problem with the loot system right now. Is coining a item you already have. That shouldnt happen and is crazy frustrating. For two reasons the 1st obvious. You already have it. But the 2nd, is it resets your luck timer on coins used. So u have a less likely chance to get loot on the next coin.

    It is really sad the game is so easy can be solo healed.

    It wasn't going to be put out as a full video, if you listened to the guy he said he was just showing it on his live stream as many people requested to see it.

    Thank you for the clear list of reasons why that would be even worse, you have convinced me, certainly.

    They should make it that if you win loot then you get to choose from the items that the boss can drop, same with the coin if you win.

    The edges are blurred because the footage was 16:10. So when you fit it into a 16:9 format, there are black vertical bars at each side of the video. To minimize this rather unpleasant effect the editor chose to put a zoomed video in the background and blur it out.

    With choices like that, I don't think I'm missing out on much.

    that makes zero sense. blizzard doesn't make money on the shipping charges...the shipping companies do....fedex, ups, and usps get the money when you have something shipped. not the company you bought the item from.

    they've already said why they won't do this. You would get all your gear too fast and then stop playing till the next raid came out.

    And if Blizzard made leveling challenging and demanding for veteran players, half of them ( more than half) would complain because they ´just want to get to 90´..

    But that is besides the point, you are not reading it correctly. What Blizzard is saying is that the main reason questing was ´more difficult´ back in Vanilla is because most of us were clueless. I know it took me up until level 30 of playing my first character ( Moonkin) to realize that AGI and STR were not good for me, despite the fact they gave AP and Crit and a lot of my skills were based around melee ( back then, you had to melee to regain mana).

    And yes, Blizzard does have the make the game playable and not frustrating for brand new players. As a veteran, who cares.. just get to 90.

    They should just upload the video to somewhere where you can dl it. People who actually care to watch it, will download it. No copyright issues, sources mentioned everything. They should think about this stuff before uploading it.

    Regardless, good to see them recovering from it. I wish he'd taken his webcam off for it though, kinda rude.

    I love the fact that Car Bot animations is getting more spotlight now (the guys who made the Animation for the Storm of Heroes spotlighted here on MMO-Champ and the zergling shirt is their style)

    They are really fun. You can find em on Youtube. As for the priest solo healing - i'm confused how he lasts mana-wise.

    The game is built on longevity as pumping out new content is time consuming work.

    i.e you will always be gated in one way or another - be it rarity of drops or what not.

    Also, if your sole reasoning is to get loot - your point is self defeating to want that loot faster.
    Due to as soon as you get that loot, your goal is complete.

    If you play on the other hand because of the people, to progress in raids, see new content, etc. you won't have the same issue.

    So it would be detrimental in the way of that people would tunnelvision the loot - get their fix - and be done with it.

    If the goal is really all that you cheerish, you are shooting yourself in the foot.

Getting no loot for 2 weeks, at all, wasting all your coins each week and in one night seeing a guildmate get loot, sometimes 2, off every boss while you yourself have been getting nothing week after week, is bad design.

    I understand Blizzard's point of view, but something needs to be done about the loot RNG, at least in Flex.
    The sheer amount of sources you can get loot from these days is abundant in every aspect - far greater then anything before.

    You even have a mechanic increasing the drop rate in LFR over time - due to finite time on the raid dungeon in question.

    In any difficulty you can use coins to get a chanse for extra loot - you can craft items, you can get 535 from Timeless isle with some effort in your part.

    You can get 540 from Flexi. If anything - at any given stage essentialy BEFORE normal, the catch up mechanics are insanely forgiving - Beyond that, the normal/heroic gear progression is more forgiving now then it has been before.

    And statistically speaking - getting no upgrade for several weeks - requires very specific situations not applicable to a majority of people to actually deem a problem at hand.. OR you are doing something wrong. I.e wanting a more lesiurely way of getting loot.

    They did make a 2048x1152 version into a torrent.
