    Can't remember even the worst geared pugs at the beginning of the addon using ccs anywhere but well.

    If people needed CC to go through MoP dungeons, I really wonder what they are going to do with WoD ones with them being at pre-nerf Vortex Pinnacle difficulty and what Blizzard's expectations are... If Celestion is right and majority needed CC for MoP (or if they didn't find it really easy), why are they making harder dungeons? I can't really put those two things together.

    I love all the elitest in this thread thinking they know it all. Guess what. when you guys hit 90 so fast and got into those dungeons with barely any gear and had it easy mode, well that is because you know fully what you are doing 95% of the time, and so did everyone else that was getting to 90 that fast. The bad players don't hit 90 within the first few days or even after a week, they take longer, and they will struggle sometimes, cause they just don't care. They will do the bare minimum effort in the dungeon on top of them not knowing their class that well, especially at the start of an exp with all new stuff that was added.

    I am far from elitest and I can't remember ever using CC one time on MoP dungeons. PLayed a resto shaman to start and switched in 5.2 to a Warlock.

    I don't recall ever having to CC in a MoP dungeon, heroic or normal. I think I CC'd once in a LFR.

    You expect bad players to know about cc or how to use it? It was never needed or used in pandas by anyone.
    If you were running heroic dungeons with people a DAY after the xpac was released, then 1) you are substantially better than the "average" player who was still leveling, and 2) you weren't running with "random noobs"; you were running with other people who knew how to play WoW too, because they also speed-leveled to 90.

    People bad enough to need CC in MoP dungeons probably wouldn't know how to CC properly anyway. It takes slightly more engagement than hitting AoEs over and over and they already don't know how to play beyond that. It's like a mythical beast, a bad player that knows how to use CC. Lol.

    Even if they were good enough to speed level, they still weren't any more geared than anyone else, so there wasn't a need for CC because the tank could handle all the mobs.

    I don't know. I'm usually pretty proactive about using CC on my main (rogue; blinding, gouging, sapping & stunning) but I've never really had the need to in MoP outside of some stuns here or there or the pre-Garrosh trash. Funny story, when we first reached the pre-Garrosh trash, I blinded one mob and sapped another (as I normally do for fun) and we had little to no issues making it through it all. The next week I wasn't there and my guild treated it like normal trash and suddenly found it ridiculously hard and couldn't figure out why.

    He's not saying that people are elitists if they didn't need CC. He's saying that people are elitists if they can't possibly imagine that out of the millions of other people playing the game, NONE of them needed CC just because their personal experience differs.

    It's like hearing a statistic about people going hungry and then saying, "That's BS -- I hardly have any money and not once have I ever had to skip a meal. Eating every day is easy, so I don't believe that anyone really goes hungry." That is how some of these posts (not yours, necessarily) read, which arguably is pretty elitist.

    Such demonizing of lesser-skilled players ITT. Disgusting, but par for the course on MMO-C.

    When making an argument you look at the majority, the baseline. And the baseline is that CC wasnt needed in MoP heroics. The statement from Celestion that the majority of players required CC at the start of MoP is pure crap, Ive ran so many LFG with random people at launch and never ever saw anyone CCing, nor did any of my guildies/friends. With this in mind it cant possibly be true that the majority of players required CC in MoP heroics. Everyone knows that CC is non-existant in LFG pugs anyway, it has always been.

    The fact that 5% of the players might have casted 1 cc at one point doesnt invalidate the argument that CC generally wasnt needed in MoP heroics, and this is a HUGE difference between Cataclysm heroics. I really doubt a single group ran dungeons like Grim Batol or Stonecore heroic without any CC in full questing gear. Doing Grim Batol after hitting 85 as the first person on my server with the first 5 people who hit 85, while we were in full quest gear and didnt level our professions etc yet was certainly one of the most fun experiences I had outside raiding in wow.

    MoP dungeons were so, so, so much more easier then Cataclysm dungeons. Cataclysm dungeons needed CC, and MoP dungeons didnt. And trust me, when players are so bad/unfocussed/afk they needed CC in MoP they arnt capable of CCing properly either. If you have enough knowledge of the game to CC properly then you will have enough knowledge to do MoP dungeons without CC aswell.

    There are no elitists here, just people stating their experiences in game. I ran random heroics since I was 90 until maybe 5.2 for Valor.. and never recall using CC ever. You'd think after running hundreds of heroics.. I would have used CC at least a few times, especially if this was what the "majority" experienced as "necessary."

    No, that doesn't make you elitist at all.

    CC was never needed in MOP dungeons, not even questionable even in 450 ilvl, there is just simply no need for CC at all in them, ever.

    I was level 90 very quickly and got straight into Dungeons. I never once needed crowd-controls, but that was because I was running with people who knew their class, and although I was new to Mistweaver, I had played plenty of it on the Beta and been a Healer for several years.

    Just because you managed to burst through easily doesn't mean everyone did. I know a few people who liked to use crowd control, or take things at a slower pace.

    If they are bad and don't care then what makes you think they would know what their cc spells are, be able to use it appropriately or even use it at all? You're just making excuses for people without actually seeing how little people use it outside of PvP. Just run SoO LFR and tell me how many people on average use CC in current content. Sorry not buying the bad and don't care argument.

    I liked using CC in general, but this isn't a discussion on who did or liked using it, its a discussion on if its necessary.

    It's more likely he just rerolled for mop rather than was bad.

    It's worth mentioning that the first hc I did was shado-pan, less than 24 hours after launch. Naturally the people I did hc's with on the first 2 days were hardcore enough to be 90 already, but speaking for the DAMAGE alone - I didn't feel threatened at all. I felt more threatened in wrath hc's, where as a paladin tank doing UP/HoL as my first 2 upon dinging with pugs we just zerged it once again.

    Less than a month later a guildie warrior tank was 'naked' tanking dungeons with just his weapon/shield/non armor pieces on for fun. He did good damage I believe due to the old vengeance mechanics (it's been a long time, might misremember this) and I personally saw him do shado-pan and stormstout with lfd healers like this, no CC.

    HC's don't have to be super hard, but a fear of occasional death makes them rewarding. While VP was one of the easiest heroics in cata I think it's a good middle ground for blizzard to aim for, as it had a few select packs that were very difficult if you didn't minimize fight duration / damage taken with the healer mana mechanics at the time.

    No, Crowd-Control wasn't necessary in Mists of Pandaria Dungeons, but just because it was necessary doesn't mean it wouldn't have been useful or even easier to use. People are largely impatient these days and refuse to wait a few seconds to get the Crowd-Control going. Just because it wasn't needed, doesn't mean it was worthless.

    I've never seen a single form of CC in any of the dungeons I've run this expansion, it's got to the stage now where I often join groups without a healer and we still charge through... I honestly find it hard to believe that any but the most tragically hopeless group needed CC this expansion.
