These look horrible. Probably the very worst sets I've ever seen since launch. What are they thinking, after the cool looks that are out presently? It's like the top art guy moved on to Diablo, and they hired a rug maker to fill his shoes.
Lawl zaryhm has made himself pretty unpopular with pvpers recently. First with his comments about the guards in Tol Barad now this. Then again, Blizzard has sort of dropped the ball on pvp entirely. Arenas buggy, imbalanced and season going for too long, exploiting rampant, poor rewards. Regular BGs, bot ridden grinds that everyone hates. Rated BGs, hardly anyone does them, nerfed rewards. World PvP, stuffed due to guards. Apparently the population of PvP servers has taken a big hit with Cataclysm, we're seeing a lot of the low pop realms being PvP servers, and its not really hard to see why.
Its amazing how blizzard managed to do a full tier of sets awful. Really, did they move their entire art department to the so called "titan"? Its unbeliviable. I say again, they should re think this of making sets themed after instances, specially this wanna be one.
Learn your math. The loss was a hell of a lot more than .02%. The 600k is a 5% loss in subscriber base AND thats assuming that initial loss is the only loss they've had in customer base. I look around the realm I look around my guild and I see a lot more active player loss than that. Maybe they havent unsubscribed yet, but I've seen 2 entire 25 man guilds gutted down to 2 players where the rest of them just quit playing and moved onto other games. No they didnt jump guilds, their toons are still there. No they didnt go to alts. Pretty much all of them have said they're done with caty and may be back next xpac. I dont think thats an abnormal number and that my realm or experience is "unique". You can be a frog standing in a pot of water as it boils on the stove and not feel the heat rising about you or you can take off the myopic blinders and see what is really happening.
Especially since the 600k loss is on March 1st, and 3 more months are passed without new raids.
also wtf is the deal with the priest armor? it looks like a glas bowl could pop up anytime and the priest just went space mode. i think they mixed starcraft with wow to much here..
can't be unseen that it looks like a space suit
