    Every language has its place based on how easily and quick it makes creating something in its sphere but they are less challenging the higher up the stack and every programmer knows that. That's why the low level kernal, firmware and driver devs earn the big money.
    what?! please, stop talking about things you have no knowledge about!

    Nothing is going to make WoW combat compelling beyond a total rework. I understand that WoW being an MMO puts a limit on what you can do, but other games like ESO, Wildstar, and Neverwinter have made a more action oriented combat system work, and its great fun and more engaging than WoW.

    You see you make this post claiming I don't know Evean though it's my profession, Yet the only one putting detail in there posts to explain anything is me, atm you have shown you have basicly no understanding of programming.

    Tbh I doubt you even know any language.

    So please do keep making vapid replys like "no you" and "shut up" because its making my case.

    Yea it's actually fairly difficult to see a path from the vary basic combat we have now to something more interesting.

    Really is long past time for a wow2 and a fresh take on things.

    I kind wish titan hadn't been canned from what was leaked out about it, it looked fun.

    With how things are going at Activision-Blizzard at the moment, I very much doubt you will see a WoW 2 anytime soon if at all..

    That's what you're going with? I don't even (yes that's the correct spelling) need to talk about my irl profession or what I've studied in my early years like you were so eager to do because at this level of nonsense a simple google search shows that what you're saying is beyond retarded. And I know this is a strong word, but saying that different programming languages only exists to respond to difficulty of usage or how easy you can create using it is just something you want to put at the top of your resume if you don't want to find work ever.

    Now this was a fun ride, but as all of your answers have been nothing but condescending nonsense, this is the point where I ignore the rest of this thread.

    Oh yea it more likly wow will keep dwindling down till they can it, once they have new ip developed and what ever revenue coming in from there mobile games push into the Chinese Market.

    But I wouldn't mind if they wrapped up current wow cleanly, maybe with the black empire coming back, push out a trilogy of stratagy games based on the war against the black empire and then made a wow 2 based in the after math of a universe mostly old god controlled.

    But that makes no sense from a buissness perspective when there's more money to be made going mobile in China and maybe chasing the market with a fortnight clone or some new ip

    Considering I have a well paid job in it and you clearly don't. I'd say that's admitting your wrong.

    Also a simple Google search does show why people bothered to develop higher level languages and one of those reasons is to make programming easier.

    Hell that was the whole reason Grace hopper invented the first programming language and compiler in the first place. So it didn't take a doctorate of maths to make a program.

    Making vague reply when I call you out for not knowing shit about the topic kinda proves my point.

    Now go finish your tutorial on php or w/e and tell your self you matter.

    Also proves my point that you get so salty for me calling you out on not knowing shit about programming you report me for trolling.

    Dident know telling you to finish your coding tutorials befor you spaff your crap on the Internet counted as trolling these days, guess the bars gotten really low.

    The issue with a lot of these suggestion here is that you want to shape the game into your own personal image without accounting for opinions other than your own.

    A big part of creating, maintaining, and improving a product like WoW is realizing people enjoy the game different and have vastly different approaches to playing it. Your improvements need to be global improvements, not just improvements to what YOU do in the game. Your improvements need to strike a balance between people on differing fringes- hardcore and casual, pvp and pve, etc. Yin and Yang my children.

    In addition, your improvements need to be specific points that can be discussed by a development team to be turned into a ticket and put into a project Sprint- not abstract wishlists. This sort of behavior is typical of some of the codecademy type kids in here that would have serious difficulty in an actual interview for a real development gig.

    These skills don't seem to be taught in colleges, as I can't describe how many potential candidates I've turned down for these very problems. They graduate from accredited universities lacking some of the most fundamental skills required for this sort of work. I'm off topic now.

    Thanks for the info and clarification. Nope. I have never heard of r/programming. Kind of interesting. He mentioned he worked with rtos, which I assume stands for Real Time Operating System and firmware. So I presume it was some methodology for programming real time systems.

    Better long term goals for character progression which can be earned(via currency or BLP) doing content you have outgrown(such as a daily heroic dungeon), improved gameplay when in combat(interesting rotations), and a return of non-generic gear(set bonuses and/or gameplay altering abilities) that can be planned around in raids and mythic+.

    I think it would really improve the game.

    No, if I as a business owner have customers that will pay me pretty much no matter what and a dev gets rid of them I'd chuck that dev out too lol.

    that is certainly your prerogative were you dev.

    It wouldn't be mine, though.

You say all the ideas are a fail because you want them to be, it's very very clear from your post you aren't open to change whatsoever. Why even be in this thread? Lets see some of your ideas!
    You read my post, or did you just base your reply from my first sentence?

    There was some (few) things I agreed with. And most of the points I didn't agree with, I replied with an answer as the OP didn't really come up with any sollutions. "Make mob type count!" How? "Make raids hard!" We allready got hard raids - mythic from when they open.

    Honestly don't get your reply at all.

    To the people bashing the premise of the thread, there is nothing wrong with expressing what you would change. He's not asking to be a dev, he's just posing a fun hypothetical. It's healthy for discussion.

    Lightbulb How I would fix the wow

    1. Remove gear inflation

    a) For alts catch up make mobs drop different classes personal BOP (Bind on Pickup account wide) gear so you can reuse it on alts.
    Gearing up alts will not be necessary easier. It depends on drop rate and ilvl for alts could be a bit lower than for main. What I mean is that it can be adjustable. Also when you get some very good piece of gear for your alt(or alt you could create) it might motivate you to play that alt which is very good.
    Basically, every expansion is like a separate game, and you can copy your toons from one expansion to next.

    b) Instead of between expansion gear inflation make a copy of character for that expansion only. So if you have a warrior, you have a copy of your warrior in vanilla (with the gear you achieved in vanilla), you have a copy of your warrior in TBC, etc. As soon as you step your character into next expansion new copy is created for that expansion. You still can play your highest level character in lower level expansions for mogs collection (not sure it is a good idea though, but probably you cant remove this now) but you can also play old expansion using your original character and gear, so every expansion will be always relevant.

    2. Remove inflation of Artifact Power (remove catch up mechanics). Instead AP level within expansion should be shared between all characters in that expansion.

    3. Add much more gear rewards. Make possible for fun and slightly overpowered gear combos. Give players a bit more freedom. It is RPG. Rewards should be for all types of WoW communities: hardcore raiders, hardcore PvPers, easy raiders (similar rewards just longer to get), easy pvp(similar rewards just longer to get), solo, etc. So everyone would have a goal. Personally, I think hardcore solo grinding could be alternative aka Mage Tower in Legion.

    4. Specs balance (not class) should be a priority. What I mean, if you implement step 1.a nerfing feral dps because druids can also be tanks will have no sense. Be serious about spec balances it is very important (feral was broken at the beginning of BFA and in BFA beta).

    5.Instead of having raid finder, normal, heroic and mythic modes, create one raid, but with easy bosses first and harder at the end. Easy bosses (which can have vanity items too) can be skippable by hardcore players (after they move way further in a dungeon). This way experiencing harder content will be reward by itself.

    Without gear inflation and content that is available as a reward - gear, AP, and content will receive value. At this moment they lost any value because of inflation systems you created, that’s is why you are losing subscribers, IMHO.

    About returning and new players: when you buy a new game you have to play it through. It is not bad it is a good thing. Remember, that your copy of character for that specific expansion will stay there forever, I think there will always be some people playing that expansion as opposed to what it is now.

    Also when new or returned players return when many other players are higher ilvl it will be easier for them to catch up because everyone could carry them a little bit (community!)

    There are many other smaller things, like healers imbalance in random BGs which I enjoy (as soft. engineer I can explain how to make it work better without increasing waiting time).

    Just my opinion, of course,
    Cheers
