    Technically every game has controller support if you launch through Steam. Could even use a NES controller if you wanted with little hassle.

    It would be great to play a stripped down WoW (no addons) and everyone be on a even playing field cause of it. I will admit it may take over my life if it did lol.
    You have the option to use same said addons so not sure why its any less "fair" now.

    Unless you mean without DPS meters no one will see how bad you are.

    Addon's are not optional in WoW on PC period, You are not going to be doing NM+ content without them. On console it would likely be its on server therefor no addon and you won't have some 13 year old screaming that you did 1% less damage then you should have.

    Or be left out of groups because your not using some dumb ass addon that rates you.

    i have done mythic raiding in WOD HFC with no addons, still done all heroic content with no add-ons, haven't cared to bother to do any mythic content except dungeons STILL WITH NO ADD ONS!

    still play better then most people with add-ons........

    add-ons only make it easier to play bad and still have good numbers, you only NEED add-ons if your pushing world first raiding content were you want every .1% / nanosecond advantage.......


    EDIT:
    ok i lied, i do use one add-on 3D PORTRAITS! which changes gameplay zero bits

    I do Normal just fine as a healer without them. And Heroic.

    It's not hard to watch a video guide on the bosses.

    My WoW client right now has zero addons.

    Addons do help I won't deny that. They are most certainly optional however. I don't use them because I don't need them and it's just clutter for me.

    I'm just going to go over a few misconceptions as I play WoW on PC and FFXIV on console.

    Firstly, if WoW releasing on a console has you physically upset (WoW releasing on a console will kill it for me) maybe you should take a break from the game and reevaluate your life.

    Not enough buttons on console

    It's been said in this thread but I'll repeat it: Modifiers.

    L2 + X, Circle, Triangle, Square, Dpad directions = 8 buttons
    R2 + X, Circle, Triangle, Square, Dpad directions = 8 buttons
    L2 first then R2 + X, Circle, Triangle, Square, Dpad directions = 8 buttons
    R2 first then L2 + X, Circle, Triangle, Square, Dpad directions = 8 buttons

    That's 32 buttons. I bet my bottom dollar I can do any of those combinations in a comparable time to anything on a keyboard.

    Also, you can do L1 + X, Circle, Triangle, Square, Dpad directions to select up to 8 different profiles (if you have say a PvP profile, PvE profile or want to change to a different talent spec that focuses AoE during a raid.) To give you an example, my mount button is not on any of my 32 buttons on FFXIV, it's on a different profile as it's not needed during a combat situation. It's two button presses away.

    Want to open your bags, view your character or get the main menu up? Diablo 3's console UI does this perfectly and would fit like a glove onto WoW. Simply press the right side of the touchpad and you're there.

    WoW won't run on a PS4

    If Skyrim runs on a PS4. WoW will run on a PS4. You might have slightly longer loading times, it probably won't run at 60fps and it might slow down during a world boss fight but it will run perfectly fine. If you have a NASA spec PC and are lucky enough to get 120fps constantly then you will notice. Us knuckledragging console users, however, will not. It will run the same as every other game.

    Healing will be impossible on a controller

    This complaint holds some merit. The max raid size in FFXIV is 8 people (2 tanks, 2 healers and 4 dps by default). They also have Alliance raids which is 3 teams of 8. You can't heal outside of your group but all 3 groups have to work together. To anyone that hasn't played FFXIV but has WoW experience, this might seem really foreign but you don't actually notice it all that much. If anything, it makes raiding seem slightly more fluid as you're not trying to juggle too much at once but it's still a team effort. Also, FFXIV still has tank/dps stances to account for the fact that there's 6 tanks in the group.

    Selecting a target to heal is as simple as scrolling through the party list with the Dpad. You can focus target to quickly acquire your main target again. Now the problem arises in 25 man raiding. That's a long list to scroll through and isn't practical on a controller. The only way I can think of getting around this is limiting all raiding on a console to 10 man.

    I don't want those mouth breathing, controller loving freaks on my server!

    Trust me, as a PC and console gamer, I don't want to be on PC servers either. The chances of WoW coming to console is virtually nonexistent but in the off chance it does, they should definitely have their own servers. I've been kicked from a dungeon before because someone didn't like my transmog. I can't imagine the toxicity if someone can detect what platform you're playing on.

    Closing comments

    Do you know what makes me a little tin-hatty? Blizzard announced classic servers but we haven't really heard much more about them. They said how they wouldn't be true classic (like old talent trees and abilities) just Vanilla WoW with the classes in their current state. Now, can you imagine picking up WoW for the very first time on console with all 6 or 7 expansions and missing all the end game for each expansion? You can get anyway with it on PC as it's an old game and people know it but it'll be a brand new game for some that have never owned (gasp!) a PC. The structuring would be all over the place.

    My thoughts? They'll release Vanilla servers for PC along with a console port. The console port will be Vanilla but they will release each expansion over time to allow people to experience all of the older content at current level. This especially holds true with the addition of scaled leveling.

    The signs are there but we'll just have to wait and see.

    This "Leak" can still be ether because it came after. It could be fake and that story is still true or that story was BS and they wanted to hold off until E3 to tell everyone.

    So until E3 everything should be taken with a grain of salt.
    Yeah, or we can just recognize reality for what it is/was...

    Just so people know, the trimming back of abilities could also be a sign of them moving to console however unless they add native controller support to PC I doubt it will happen.

    I think it could work, as long as they're on separate servers so they can work out some additional balancing / pruning issues needed for PS4.
