    "It's just alpha!".

    Prepare yourselves for another round of Blizzard apologists doing what they do best - performing breathtaking mental gymnastics to defend their dark masters.

    I for one can't wait for the alpha to be released. It will be quite interesting to observe, will the shitshow repeat itself exactly like the last time?

    Can u blame him?

    Didt people bring damning feedback on Azerite gear on day 1, but Blizzard still went through with it.

    Covenants and their spells tied to em will 100% be a shitshow as they will not be balanced and its bad if they are and are NOT buffed/nerfed.

    This is premature. At least have the decency to wait for alpha to be out before starting the hate.

    I mean say what you will about a 1 post account but he's fucking right. Blizzard fanboys always scream "it's alpha it's for bug testing nothing's finalized"

    and what's this...it made it to release? Who could have possibly predicted that, as if blizzard has some sort of track record or something

    Numbers feedback in alpha is 100% useless. The feedback needs to be about the system itself and the overall feel of it. Numbers can be tuned systems can't be redesigned.

    Let's make a deal: We don't shitpost defending Blizzard's backwards design decisions and you don't pay for a product you don't like.

    Sound good?

    ...No?

    Shitpost it is then.

    Blizzard has said earlier that not enough people give feedback from ptr/beta to act on.
    It's an annoying situation of guessing whether the people not giving feedback are happy with the stuff or indifferent.

    Inb4 the lock here is how the thread will go on



    The Shill will say " alpha number doesn't mean nothing ! " Not that beta seems to be acknowledge by Blizzard.

    The Cucks will say " durr already hating durr "

    The Haters will say " fuck Blizzard China ching chong "


    The pessimistic like me will say " honestly after BFA Beta, BFA 8.0.1 8.1 8.3 No essence account wide, I hope coronavirus brings our race on the verge of extinction so we don't risk to be deluded "

    In alpha and beta its already to late to start switching out any of the major systems, alpha and beta is mostly bug fix and number tuning.

    A non working system will be changed at most to be as good as possible and then switched out earliest in a x.1 or x.2 patch.

    He's not though. Nor are you.

    Most of the stuff people have a fit about does change, but people have totally unrealistic ideas about what can change and how fast.

    Like with covenants, numbers and how abilities work can easily change quickly. That covenants exist or how they function on a basic level can change but could easily take six months or a year.

    So generic shrieking about how nothing in Alpha changes is absolutely mindless and worthless. Some things can change, and some things can't, or not until after release. This isn't a unique Blizzard situation either. Every large scale AAA MMO faces this challenge, whether EQ back in the day or Destiny 2 now.

    And people said that azerite felt bad to use during alpha. At least I did.
    Hell I also complained during Legion alpha/beta that it felt bad if you didn't have the proper legendaries.

    So if I get into Shadowlands testing I'll probably send feedback saying it feels awful being shoehorned into a specific covenant for my BiS ability, even if I want to go with another for story reasons, or transmog.. Unless of course they decide you can get all of them, at which point it will probably just feel like an annoying grind to get alts ready, depending on how long it takes.

    Blizzard just deflecting. They had enough feedback, they choose not to do anything. Funny how bugs were still active at launch, even after people reported them.

    Alpha is when systems change
    Beta is when numbers change

    Or it should be.. Alpha has more and more started meaning beta, with beta starting to mean demo over the past 10 or so years.
