    So you’re saying that going to Onyxia at 120 feels epic, because of this? You risk losing -50dkp?

    ah yes, the idiotic "WoW iSnT aN rPg AnYmoRe" spiel.

    I swear this place is just incestuous at this point.

    I have 380 because of cache loot, wf free gear and some titanforge but I feel everything is still the same and I am playing with both Hunter and Warrior, so hardly anything related to the class in terms of skill.

    I haven't done the new raid yet, but I did Uldir and only Mythrax, Zul and G'huun was pretty much the same in both normal and heroic, hard to beat, not just some faceroll bosses like the first 3

    Yes not the same but "shiny objects" is important part of getting rewarded for X hours spent playing the game, M+ challenged the status quo in Legion and removal of item sets and hard gear reset every major content patch in BfA trivialized sense of progression even more effectively separating PvP, M+ and raiding communities, poor game design choices if you ask me.

    You clearly don't want to do anything in game but complain on forums.

    newsflash, be it a mount, or an achievment, it's all pixels.
    No it isnt. People would care more if there would be some exclusive cosmetic sets or mounts. Achievement is nothing but gear? Thats complete different story. Why you think mahe tower was sucesfull? Becouse it was fun? Hell no. People did it becouse it had cool looking exclusive weapon looks what got removed with new expansion. Legion proved you wrong.

    so you are somehow saying that a cosmetic reward in a game is... not pixels?
    ok breh.

    Also, shittons of people farm things like "insane" for nothing but titles. Please slow down and use a proper translator or spellcheck yourself or something

    LFR is meant to be easy, the real progression is in mythic as it has always been.

    No i am saying that nobady cares about achievements and say achievements are on same level of reward as gear or mount is dumbd. Achievement is hidden bar in your own interface. Gear is something what you see all the time which nakes you care about it more than achievements. So if raids or any other casual content actuly had sone sort of exclusive cosmetic items players would be far more interested in playing game.

    This game need more mage towers, challenge mod gear, etc...

    Vannila didnt had mythic raiding so it wasnt always like that. People dont care about mythic it is same content as lfr and as long as it will stay that way you can call mythic real progresion as you want. Players wont care to push it.

    You don't have a point, dunno why you're running with the belief that you deserve a counter-argument.

    And yet nothing helps, thread still moved out on battles of two parties, which can't agree with existence difference between content and progress for current game design. It shouldn't be, yes, but by a silly coincidence of circumstances now these are two completely different independent concepts in game and this is one of the main problems. You can deny it many times, you can beat your head against the wall, but content have separate progress now (it should be caled "story-mode" in current system) and original "progress" is meaningless in current design, there is no connection between these two.

    ...but I tried to prevent it, really tried.

    In response to one that offered "to have watch YouTube", so it should be these “lazy” people who should go watch YouTube, instead of demanding own conditional “participation” in content-progress as a single integral part of design, but it's not there, in order to please these people - it doesn't exist anymore (but don't think that I blame them, no, just devs' unoriginality and softness (greed?), they're just like everyone - circumstances' slaves, conditions' hostages).

    Mmm... I almost forgot, that friend already said same stuff years ago, looks like another curse

    I don't know how much they'll hold at current pace, but I don't see future in this system. Those who are lazy or unable to meet necessary conditions can see all material on youtube/wowhead (you have no excuse for any artificially palliated material <url>|<url> yeah, it's should be almost all game content with "Karazhan?" approach (at least 1-2 hours to pass) and much more RPG+СС mechanics). Game with similar approach <url> (history proves that doesn't work, I can confirm that because live here) just suppress motivation, examples:
    and then goes some eg.

    Progress is useless when it doesn't require anything from the player and is stupid/devoid of emotionally meaning/isn't part of curiosity motivation when there is no its connection with content for game like this one. It's deprived of such simple, but at the same time complex and important uniqueness/necessity in statement "I was there! I killed these bosses! I died here and there! I went and looked at all these pixels with my direct participation! I'm able and deserve This part of Content! And all of you can continue to watch it on your retarded YouTube!" You kill one of the most motivated game's social part - let's call them conditionally "RPG-munchkins" (it's not about hardcore I'm talking here, as some might think, but in applied strength and resources in achieving specific goal). Many of these people are rare @$$holes (not all, but many, strictly speaking, each of us hides small, grumbling egoist, whom psychologists often call simply “ego”, someone is able to control it, and others don't, but community has dial with it quite well before, unlike in current social system), but game is greatly powered by their/this your part's energy, you can't deny it. Don't forget this isn't single/session game like FPS or MOBA (gameplay of which in many ways is exactly their content *looking with laugh at WoW's current sociodynamics*, don't you find anything alike? FPS/action-munchkins? E-sports?), this is world with its own history and it has always been main feature and motivation to participate in it in general, all your Diablo-like stupidity is useless without it (how many of those "casuals", about whom company often likes to remember lately, who passed fifth act (DII) of first difficulty, went further? and what about second difficulty? could be only if with another character - they saw game, they don't need it anymore (could be else only since talent's system requires more experience *again looking with laugh at WoW's current one*), so everything further is only for progress, as dumping stats in MU, but even in this seemingly silly grind game there is an “inaccessible” content that isn't available to everyone/requires certain indicators). Absurdity and rubbish. Last time difficulties were part of content, when they were an element of battle that provided a large grain of information on game story - a separate thread (not else "mode/difficulty") that only those, who're worthy, can advance further, and rest are forced to “j@rk 0ff” looking videos on YouTube, because this part of content isn't available to their characters (fact of your alter ego's presence and participation is important, this is still role-playing game) and they don't have will/skill to overcome this wall.

    ps. And mentioning of WotLK by one of participants is especially smiles me, since WotLK is criticized mainly because of this, so no one said it was good, just because exactly this part was one of those bad. People, don't be silly.

    I’ve read most of the commentary and it’s sad that the usual contributors are here, grossly simplifying convoluted challenges that this design team isn’t doing a very good job of. As far as Blizzard is concerned, their stance is effectively to just keep expanding content they think players should be involved in. They’re not interested in what people actually want, they’re interested in what they believe they should want.

    Look at the five-man content; levelling difficulty, level cap difficulty, Heroic difficulty, Mythic difficulty and Mythic+ difficulty. Is there an actual difference between the performance required in levelling, level cap or Heroic? No? So why on earth are there five difficulty settings for something that doesn’t need them? Then we hit raiding that throws LFR, Normal, Heroic and Mythic at players after removing the community construct that used to be required. Not enough players involved? Let’s shove quests into raiding content, and make those quests necessary if players want to develop their professions or allied race achievements.

    Having a struggle? We can solve that! Let’s shower players in gear that’s laughably easy to obtain, but not guaranteed because it’s ludicrously random. We can make some Azerite gear that’s lower item level, but has a higher Azerite demand to unlock its bits and pieces. Want to build some gear for yourself in a system that used to be individual and deep? Have fun farming raids for a bucketload of time to get the things you need to develop it!

    The reason the OP is largely correct is relatively simple; because players have no role. They’re now fully controlled in whatever it is they do, irrespective of what they want to do.

    It’s why, despite challenges, Classic will do well.

    We need more Mage Tower style content.

    We progress too fast nowaday and we don't get the satisfaction from it anymore. In Legion, I look forward to level and gear my alt because I look forward to beating Mage Tower. The process then repeats itself with another class, and so on and on.

    Nowaday, we gear up our alts for what really? There's nothing to look forward to.

    They are handing out gear for free because its irrelevant shitty gear meant to make you catch up with the active population in order to be useful.

    Cause same as everything else and every other game the last 5-8 years.

    "No one has the time to wait for others".

    Get off your high horse because you choose to remain blind with irrelevant content.
    No frankly what I should be at is 340, but because they are throwing out 400 ilevel for basically doing nothing why would I waste my time running the same content in two or 3 different modes when they are going to hand it to me anyways? I'm not messing with adjusting my schedule for 10 ilevels.

  15. #135
    I'm really curious about the "run the same content in 2-3 modes" because while 2 makes sense, there should absolutely be 0 reason to do more than 2 modes. If you're a mythic raider only mythic and HC is really relevant. You might clear normal the first week a raid comes out because mythic isn't out yet and doing it once on normal the first week might be worth it, but after that it's definitely not worth it unless you like doing it.

    If you're a heroic raider with no plans for mythic then obviously normal becomes more valuable to you but LFR still remains completely useless because it takes a lot longer and the chances of getting a TF of 30 ilvls is so minor that mathematically it's not worth the time.

    If you raid normal as your highest tier then LFR might be worth it but that's about it.

    Legion was slightly different as all of the difficulties could give you legendaries in case you still missed one of your BiS ones but with BFA it's definitely not worth slogging through 3-4 difficulties of the same raid.

    The problem blizzard is having was best simmed up by a webcomics artist.

    "They are trying to make a shirt that fits by a giant and a midget. There are simply to many concessions needed to allow a grandmother to play a game to keep her grandson interested in it."

    That really has been blizzards problem from arguably mid cata. They can't pick a single group to cater to so they end up catering to none.

    You should use "source" for being polite
    Metaphor is very good and funny itself, but people talk about it already very long ago in one sense or another... and still that doesn't help anyway.

    I understand the purpose of catch-up mechanisms, especially in a game where there are less and less players but it has gone too far. Every major patch you can flush all your hard earned gear and start doing the same things again but with higher ilvl rewards. There is no sense of achievement in getting gear.

    I could just wait until the last patch of an expansion is released to start playing it and be at par with others in terms of gear.

    You're confusing "progression" with "numbers inflation".
