    Also, correlation does not prove causation. Yes, they stopped reporting sub numbers, but that does not prove any of the myth you and other claim as fact. It was done so because it no longer accurately conveyed game health to their subscribers as they have stated multiple times. Finally, the only niche here is the minority of players who complain simply because the game is not catered solely to them. I have the ability to complain, but I also have the ability to actually be willing to try different things out. You don't because you are unwilling to try anything that isn't in your specific vision of the game, think their opinions are actually fact, and make up narrative to confirm your bias when you aren't getting exactly what you want. That is why this myth continues to permeate. It is convenient confirmation bias of the entitled members of the player base like you.
    You sure do have to turn yourself into a pretzel to justify this mess. Sheesh. I prefer the ability to think critically than make excuses for garbage like this.

    Yeah, there are some rotation changing and/or impactful traits but in comparison to the sheer amount of IMPACTFUL, QoL or game changing traits from weapons in Legion it’s a joke. And let’s not forget you weren’t constantly chasing a new piece of gear with said traits and relying on RnG to even make yourself viable.

    I never get pissy about Blizzard but I’m really pissed this time around. They constantly contradict themselves, never admit and backpeddle on a mistake and give vague answers to serious issues. Look at Outlaw Rogues. For some reason you decided to nerf the hell out of their viable Azerire trait so now Snake Eyes is necessary, secondary weights have changed and compared to the better scaling in the other specs — it’s now become an almost dead spec when it’s niche fights are loaded with the other spec and ST, Outlaw is nowhere to be found. On top of that the rotation has become more complicated (which I like) but doesn’t reward your for the extra effort. Add in RnG of roll the bones and it becomes “WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING!?”

    Yeah, I’m curious too. However, I’m for the mentality of pointing out socialism is bad every chance you get so I ain’t mad at it lol.

    I like how when rightwingers get mad at capitalism they don't like, they call it socialism. The Cold War in a nutshell.

    The answer in regards to not wanting account-wide reputations was highly unsatisfying. Don't the devs realize how insane it is to try to farm all the reps in the game on individual characters when they have reps like Shaohao, Bloodsail Buccanears, the Vanilla PvP rep titles, and so forth? Heck, I know of one rep grind from WoD that is impossible to do because of the removal of Ashran, and I can't even use the coolest looking Alliance tabard on any new character because of it. Let's not forget that the rules for what is account-wide or not from reps make no sense. Several cosmetic rewards that are locked behind the reps that you need to even use on an alt, yet this rule does not even apply to stuff like mounts, which makes it all highly inconsistent and stupid.

    I've been practically married to my original Vanilla Paladin because the rewards on her are irreplacable and it would frankly be asinine to do them all over again. Reps that are Exalted should frankly all be account-wide, period.

    TLDR from the AMA:

    Everything will be fixed in an unspecified future because we don't understand the playerbase anymore.

    Their main point is that its not relevant content, so it doesnt matter if you grind 100 rep per day for the next 5 years. And as its not relevant content, there is no time pressure to do it. Small exclusion to that is stuff they removed for which usually a fair warning is given.

I don't really sympathize with the notion that every class needs the same exact toolkit. They tried that once, and it failed hard.
    Im not even saying they should give everyone the same abilities for survivability; I just wish the classes that DONT have tools like AMS, Cloak etc. could get something meaningful instead to somewhat keep up with those classes. Offheals, while they sound nice, usually dont do it in a raid environment. As a shaman, as soon as im doing something else other than tunneling boss/priority adds, I'm afraid to fucking die to everything.

    If you dont give classes without such strong defensive capabilities something to make this weakness worth it, its not worth playing one of those classes, unless you are in the top tier of damage meters, and thats the main problem here: Rogues are super good at surviving stuff WHILE pushing out good damage. The same goes for Mages. An elemental or enhancement shaman for example cant do anything comparable to that, while bringing nothing relevant to a raid/group besides raw damage output and some VERY niche utility (Tremor Totem) which cant be used everywhere and even when you could use it, there is most of the time a mechanic that PREVENTS you from using it properly (Zul fears for example).

    If you dont have true utility/survivability, you at least need to bring a shitton of damage, something that is missing from both Elemental and Enhancement in all parts right now.

    Them being "relevant" or not is quite frankly irrelevant. The fact of the matter is that the rules for what is account-wide or not are inconsistent, even when it comes to "non-relevant" content. Even so, reputations have had everything from profession items, item upgrades, and more that have been relevant in the past to progression, so nothing is stopping Blizzard from making them needed to progress. As a matter of fact, they actually did make a reputation mandatory for progression. It is called Champions of Azeroth. So even if you are going to make the argument that reputations are not mandatory, Blizzard still broke their own rules when creating this faction in BfA, and knowing Blizzard they will break that rule in the future as well.

    Besides, if they are so trivial as to not being needed, then why is the Collection feature even in the game? You don't need hundreds of mounts for all your characters, just one ground and a flying one. Pets? Nah. Toys? Nope. Blizzard decided to open the flood gates for account-wide stuff the moment they made this stuff available on all your characters regardless of server. If this had been back in TBC/early WotLK, I could at least understand the argument because of how the game functioned back then, but not after years of pushing out account-wide system after system.

    I sincerely believe that this comment is complete bullshit. If they would have taken their time and ironed out the little details. For fucks sake, change the alliance horses into something, ANYTHING different. Complete the fucking quest text. Like honest to god Blizzard, you can't hide how pathetic this expansion is behind fancy PR language that we have heard a million times. Do they not realize that we play other games........which those companies feed us the same excuse filled jargon. activi$ion is leaking through this expansion so much.
    Check my achievements bruh.

    so in a nut shell heres what I understand instead of releasing and complete error free games which is balanced that way it should be and fun to play they pushed it out so fast ,, and fixing it as they go along.. .. so there saying here a broken unbalances game but we will get it fixed as time goes by .. ?? I would have rather waited 2-3 years ,, to get a polished game instaed of a half fasted backed game with so many errors and bugs,,

    - - - Updated - - -

    I understand he may be the face of blizzard , but where is everyone else this poor guy.. is all by himself.. and there there are thousand of directors designes managers.. that contribute to this game ,, where are they ?? why don't they answer some question where are they ?

    I am not twisting into anything. YOu caliming that no longer reporting sub numbers proves your conspiracy theory is who is doing the twisting into a pretzel as you continue to insist your opinion is fact. You are everything I say you are. You want the game catered solely to you. ANyone who disagrees with you is a white knight, fnboy or some other nonsense used to try to discount opinion that doesn't agree with you.
