    Maybe if people weren't so idiotic on the hyperboles, the quality of discussions on these forums would improve

    TBC is nothing compared to todays raiding though.

    That 1% number was about 6 months before Wotlk came out, the end of TBC.

    The main difference I see with TBC raid design and current raid design, is that while current raids are more complex, the mechanics of TBC raids were far more punishing. It was relatively simple to know what you had to do in TBC raids, but if *anyone* did not execute correctly the effects were felt were felt raid wide in ways that were almost impossible to overcome unless you were dramatically overgeared for the fight. It was the old Blizzard mantra "easy to learn, difficult to master" on display in top form.

    Can you elaborate how can you consider the mechanics in mythic generals or mythic sire denathrius not punishing enough compared to TBC to claim that those were "far more punishing"? some day people will be objective for once xd

    Whilst TBC raids were harder than Vanilla. They are still braindead in comparison to current Mythic.

    Unless they gate Sunwell like it was on retail, then it will be 3x day 1 kills.
    I have a feeling that without the worldbuff meta, it might actually take TWO days to clear it.

    The raid was made with both in mind. Using neither is not intended.
    Let's look at the test results. You are a horrible person. It says right here, you're a horrible person. We weren't even testing that. Don't let the horrible person thing get you down though. Science justified your parents choice to abandon you.

    You cant honestly believe this - either you never did TBC raids, or never did mythic raids since introduction, or both.

    Clearly, it was about 1% miss chance on taunt and having your tank/raid be splattered by Brutallus when it failed. (even though it wasn't even that big of a deal) Much harder than all the bullshit than happens on Mythic SLG.

    With some consummable, yeah.
    Not with stacking so many of them, and certainly absolutely not with WB.

    Thats debatable. We have no evidence one way or another, outside of an obscure Ion post that isnt definitive.
    But he does say: "raid designers were acknowledging that top guilds would use every tool at their disposal to win the race to Kel'Thuzad, and tuning the fights around that expectation". Every tool would include world buffs.

    It is no where near current Mythic raids. They were punishing but still doable without major difficulty. The only fight that may come close to mythic difficulty in that whole xpac will be Muru.

    No, because it's expected that people will WIPE during progress, and as such WB wouldn't be available for progress.
    They obviously didn't tune it for people who already have known the fight for 15 years, and practiced for hours on PTR/private servers, and would go to such ridiculous length as rotating alt with WB.

    WB were thought to be something fun to help leveling. Not to double character's power during raids.
    In fact, if Naxx fights were designed with WB, they would be plain impossible to finish without, considering how much more powerful someone is when stacking them.

    I cited evidence that contradicts what you just said. You bring your opinion to the table. Im not going to debate your opinion.

    More punishing, have you completed Mythic anything in current wow. Most mechanic fails in current mythic lead to huge damage to you/raid, death to you or even worse wipe. Yes there were some oneshot mechanics in TBC but most mechanics were forgiving until Sunwell and in many cases only a couple people had mechanics where they had to worry and personal responsibility was not always huge. Now fights are based around personal responsibility mechanics.

    This is exactly what people said about classic and see how that turned out.
    TBC is an amazing game, much better than Shadowlands will ever be but let's not fool ourselves into thinking that it's hard. In fact I'd argue that one of the main reasons that it's a better game is because it's easy, it's way more inclusive.

    Us claiming that it's hard when it's painfully obvious that it's not just makes us look insecure.
