If that's a legit issue for you, that's cool. Everyone has their particular gameplay quirks, I'm loud and outspoken about most of my 'feel' issues in both WoW and every other game.
To be honest, if you personally think Inq is "boring" well, you're entitled to that since gaming is a subjective experience. What I was trying to convey (and more-or-less failed to do so properly) is that just saying "INQ IS BAD BECAUSE IT IS SO BORING" and then moving on, as many forum arguments tend to go since the dawn of Holy Power, is totally unproductive and unhelpful because it's basically saying nothing.
It's like saying "Inq is just terrible because the icon is a shape". ... Uh. Little more to go on? Please? :p (@Shelly I'm not specifically referring to your posts, you've gotten fairly detailed about what frustrates you and that is productive)
Nah, that was meant to be intentionally absurb to try to put in context how "INQ IS BAD BECAUSE IT'S BORING" is ~useless without further personal/subjective context for devs to go on.Really?
You're going to play the "well it's just a game and everything you do is boring anyway if you look at at the right perspective ..."
Hm. Actually, in that example I can conjecture many situations where people might renege on that deal due to poor planning, unexpected situations, budgetary tactics, etc. despite the ideal being to always aim for 100% uptime on 25% extra paycheck. Which, really, is what the "Inq has depth" crowd argues.And no, it's nothing like that. It's more like saying "My boss will pay me 25% more each paycheck if every 5th paycheck I deposit the whole thing into the bank."
Yeah, that's awesome and sweet and no one would ever NOT do that, which is kind of the point. If there's no tension there and we all do it then why have the skill?
But honestly while the subtlety is there with Inq refreshes, that's not unique to Inq, it's unique to any mechanic which requires decision or timing. Methodically-minded people like that will always be processing those number streams during their content clears, no matter what set of tools you give them to do it with.
I think though, they don't want to go back to a time where there was no set of tools to game, tweak, and feel self-satisfied about being clever with (however tiny the gain), and there's a lingering sense that going "NO MORE INQ" will spiral Ret backwards in time if Blizz listens.
Thankfully I think we can be sure that Blizz is past that design point philosophically, so if Inq does go (regardless of my feelings about that possibility) it's basically guaranteed some other mechanical consideration will replace it. Whether that will feel worse than Inq once the dust settles, haha...
