    Again, the reasoning. Look, I don't give a crap if you liked it or not, but try actually engaging in discussion. Or, well, not. Simply saying it was weak is boring and, well, weak. Ammo makes in-game sense (the hunter is shooting ammo from the weapon) and it used to be in game. It wasn't removed for any sound reason, just as a supposed QoL improvement .But that's my point (and Firefly's I think) - each of these changes makes the game world a bit more bland and a little less immersive.

    If your not instantly being revived, I'm not excited about it. Personally, while it may seem odd, either leave it as it is, or revive people. I'm getting really tired of people who think it's the rest of the raids job to rez them after they die, and are too lazy to run back. This could force people to run back and severely cut down on the in between time that is wasted for the most part by people waiting for a rez, not realizing that they have the debuff and no one is individually rezzing 12 people.

    No, I'm telling them to take action. Unlike changes to WoW where the player can't take any action to alter the game (I can't use ammo on my hunter or revert to the old poison model on my rogue), people with slow machines CAN do something about that. So they should.

    You also might want to investigate a thing called logic. It's quite useful in life.

    that's not blizzards fault, that's just the people you're playing with.

    If its a major issue for you, talk to them or find new people to game with.

    My computer exceeds the recommended specs (although by just a smidge -- still, miles ahead of the minimum specs) and sometimes I get hung up on loading screens.

    Why does this have to be a situation where people are "getting handed things on a silver platter"? All that blizzard is doing is realizing that it is pointless to force people through 2 additional loading screens when there might be issues that this can cause (people with computers that aren't fast enough to load that many times quickly, connectivity issues, issues with the world server that they are being forced back to for 3 seconds). Blizzard can come up with other ways to punish us for wiping that isn't just forcing us out of the instance. It's not like they are removing repair costs, respawning us right in front of the boss, and automatically rebuffing/well fed/flasking, they are just updating the system to be more accommodating. I welcome this change.

    And before you continue to throw around assumptions about people -- I like this change AND I do work in the real world. Liking a change does not have to mean I live in Mommy's basement and want instant gratification.

    I can understand the flavor, but most instances have incredibly short runs to the instance portal right now and in most cases are literally a 5 second run. Furthermore checkpoints are enabled at certain points which automatically make you appear at certain points throughout the dungeon, this has been happening since Cataclysm launched.

    WoTLK had short run backs as well, but instance check points weren't really a thing and were most explained with odd teleporters being located throughout the instance. Sometimes they made sense, other times they didn't.

    TBC/Vanilla had a mixture of short to obscenely long run backs with the odd teleport to certain location NPC.

    Good stuff. My computer hates vale and i generally wait in load screen for 10-20 seconds.

    I'm glad you have a great computer that laughs at load screens; not everyone does.

    HEHEHEH Another case of "hey dude, do you realize we have the technology to replace this old model for years, already?"

    At least they noticed this time.

    This probably has a non-negligible positive impact on server load, since bouncing between world and instance servers isn't free.

  15. #115
    Its a great change when it comes to server stability. Too many times ive been inside an instance just fine where someone releases and gets stuck on load screens while everyone else inside the instance is fine.

  16. #116
    Main reason I'm for it is because of how unstable the servers have been recently and the issues with just getting through loading screens on a raid night sometimes. But I agree that Blizzard is making WoW more and more of an action game and has lost a lot of the RPG over the years.

    If you dont see the point of this then you cleerly have never raided with someone who has a bad computer. We always had that 1 guy who had to be ressed to save time beause his loading screens were just stupidly long and it was faster for someone to ress him once they got inside then him running.
