    lots of classes are shit. hybrids cant dps. hunters scale bad. warriors get to be the best dps and tank. atleast in real vanilla you could say "one day i might get buffed" but in classic it will never happen. you either play something that's known to be OP like everyone else or get memed on for playing a shit spec.

    Hypothetical, of course. I'm not endorsing or rejecting anything.

    There is no "violation" of #nochanges. Blizzard never promised #nochanges.

    The ppl who asked for this wanted classic with no changes.... Blizzard is not going to make 25 different versions of Classic so... please shut up so those ppl, the ones who MADE IT POSSIBLE can play their beloved game in peace. I dont even play it... just have some respect for them and stop saying "classic+". Remove it from your vocabulary.

    I'm still boycotting them over their non-apology for being PRC mouthpieces, but if I wasn't, while I wouldn't be happy about those changes I wouldn't quit in a huff over them.
    "In today’s America, conservatives who actually want to conserve are as rare as liberals who actually want to liberate. The once-significant language of an earlier era has had the meaning sucked right out of it, the better to serve as camouflage for a kleptocratic feeding frenzy in which both establishment parties participate with equal abandon" (Taking a break from the criminal, incompetent liars at the NSA, to bring you the above political observation, from The Archdruid Report.)

    Hahaha. All these discussions. It's as if Classic isn't actually that good. (Because it isn't. Remove your nostalgia goggles.)

    This is an interesting perspective, and one that i share. When playing a 'broken' class in vanilla, it always felt like just a matter of time before you would have a chance to play the class / spec you wanted to. But with classic, we know it will be at least a year if not years before anything changes - thats a long time to play a broken spec that performs at 30% compared to other specs.

    I know a lot of people who rushed to 60 in classic and then quit, and have parked their 60 until future developments are announced - if its Classic+ (which i REALLY doubt) then i suspect they would use that opportunity to re balance things. If it is BC (which i think it will be) then we know class balance dramatically improves. Is it perfect? god no - but for the vast majority of classic players (extremely casual) the improvements will be huge.

    If they make ANY QOL changes, then you Classic fanboys need to admit classic isn't as good as you remembered and is actually, objectively the worst version of the game.

    I get what you are trying to do, and best of luck with it. However, you REALLY need to improve your material - its 2/10 kiddie level stuff at the moment, and if anything is a bit cringe. Keep at it though, you'll be E-Famous any day now for sure!

    The answer of course is, "it depends".

    It has been violated at the point where they announced that Classic would be based on retail client.

    Saying that one prefers Classic over Retail is not the same thing as saying everything in Classic is perfect.

    For me it boils down to the change violating the spirit and authenticity of vanilla WoW. A good example is how Blizzard used the new client and converted it down instead of the full old school client. Yes, it was a change and it has some ripples that bounce around but it intends to keep the game as close to what it was as possible. So this is a change I don't mind. But if they did something like changed all the class specs and abilities to balance it out, for example, it would be something that alters the whole game away from what Classic was. This is the type of change I wouldn't accept.

    They already made QoL changes though...

    - Able to send multiple mail attachments
    - Right-click to report
    - Some UI Improvements here and there

    Stop trying to act edgy by blanket terming all classic players as 'Fanboys'. Plenty of people enjoy Classic SPECIFICALLY because it lacks a lot of the QoL of expansions. You know, it's not illegal for other people to like other stuff to you. It doesn't make them 'fanboys'. It just makes them people who like other stuff to you. Get off your high horse and accept this simple fact.

    The game is already vastly different to how it was back in the days.
    lots of MC encounters have bugs that weren't there (Ragnaros, Garr, Golemagg).

    Holy priests are still bugged and can gain massive +healing boosts by respeccing before raiding.

    World pvp is way different now, due to people knowing how to more efficiently farm honor, and due to the servers being huge, compared to back in the days.
    Not to mention MC and ONY not being tuned for 1.12, and being cakewalks right now.

    I would be fine with minor changes, up to even implementing Dual spec. I would not be fine with LFG/major class changes, etc.
    Monk, I need a monk!!!

    I said before and I will say it again: I am happy for them to implement ALL the TBC changes, a select few from WotLK and leave it there. So anything that falls under this category is fine by me. If that means they do it as Classic + or TBC Classic or whatever, then so be it. In the meantime I am still enjoying Classic for what it is (imo): an enjoyable game that has both lots of unfinished/half-baked aspects and lots of great ones too.

  18. #118
    Nah. Anything that would make the game more interesting without fundamentally changing the core gameplay would work for me. Things I wouldn't mind seeing at all:

    - Under-achieving specs tuned up
    - Pally taunt
    - LFG queue that puts the group together (and nothing else)
    - Dual spec

    I'm also in the camp of people who'd prefer to see new, customized content for Classic+ and not a release of historic expansions a la Everquest's TLP servers.

    I wouldn't quit, but I'd be peeved. I played Vanilla and liked it, I wanted to play it again. Now I get to. If they want to change it, they should release a new server with those changes. Then you can still play Vanilla, or you can play Vanilla+.

    Hopefully going forward, they adopt this and keep at least 1 server up for each expansion.
