    And CC was only "needed" because players were awful. You can look on classic wow right now and chain pull the dungeon without cc. Player skill overall is so much better. Unfortunately some ppl never improved and thankfully we have RIO to keep them out of our groups fir content that requires at least a little bit of skill.
    Classic =/= Vanilla. We all know this. Once Classic came out, there were thousands of videos on how to do/cheese content that we did not have all those years ago. Kinda like retro gaming. You see people zipping through Mario 3 in 11 min without taking a single hit. That didn't happen back when the game was relevant. People practiced that for years.

    Read above. Classic =/= vanilla. We're talking about vanilla.

    Besides the occasional mob that needs sheeped, especially during inspiring week, CC is done in the form of interrupts, stuns, and silenced now. Casting sheep once every minute per pull isn't hard. Making sure 2-3 priority spells per pack don't go off is harder.

    Mechanics in earlier game was a patch of bad might spawn near u, don't stand it. Or mobs face cleave, stand to the side. Mechanics now are much harder.
    Raids are harder for sure. Actual dungeons are way harder mainly because of the timer.

    Take it away and you’ll have 1000% + people with KSM.

    No it isn't...

    When vanilla came out, we didn't have THOUSANDS of Youtube videos showing you how to do/cheese content. Also, once Classic came out, we had thousands/millions of players who had already done all the content. They knew how to do it. It wasn't new/fresh anymore.

    that just means people were bad... not that the game was different...

    You said you're doing high keys. But then claim dungeons were the same back then?

    Its pretty similar. I played back then too. Except ud have melee warlocks, and mages casting frostbolt on aoe pulls, and rogues that didn't know about poisons. If you took the average m+ player now, and put them in original vanilla dungeons, they'd demolish them without cc

    Where did I say that the dungeons were the same? Don't strawman this as I'm not doing that to you.

    And we can agree to disagree about the average M+ player. I've played with enough to know it's not that cut/dry. I've seen more screw-ups in M+ than back then.

    Which supports my stance. People were not as great back then, so CC was needed. They didn't know that you could cheese that wall over there and skip 75% of the dungeon.

    EDIT: Maybe not saying they were bad, just not as experienced.

    I don't need google, I play since the early days. You did not need CC in Vanilla if peeps were just a bit decent and not complete afk-heads.
    (Are you one of those that thought that Classic will be "hard"?^^)
    The same as you do not need any world improving stuff in M+ if people are just half decend.
    And Rio is exactly doing this: showing people who have atleast some clue, same as gear showed in the past.

    Na, was not laughable. It was the way to go when raiding. Dunno on what server you played, but as other people already told you, it was common.

    We can agree to disagree on vanilla CC. I know it was used as I've sheep'd plenty of mobs myself.

    I feel bad for people thinking they needed to gearcheck back then. I can't imagine how sad that must have been.

    Well, it worked out. Less people failing on mechanics or not dealing the damage they should be doing. More fun for everyone that actually wanted to put time and energy into the game.

    He spoke about gearchecking in raiding. As far as I can remember pug raids were not THAT thing back then (maybe 10 men, surely not 20-25-40) and in that case I can agree that gearcheck was probably a case, but honestly I don’t remember gear checking in 5 men dungeons too. Finding a party was enough of a pita to bother about gear too.

    Seriously, people here put in 10 seconds of thought into their solutions with no critical thinking whatsoever...
    Armchair game devs. Also you forgot about how they will endlessly drone when their terrible 'solution' isn't immediately implemented into the game.

    well, yeah, so that's what I mean. We won't know that unless we will know what rio everyone was, what covenants, what comp, what dungeon and what pull with what CDs were available. Doing massive first pull in NW is pretty common i.e. but if people can't interrupt - you are screwed.

    What makes you think your opinion is more grounded and in line with the majority of players? Fun fact, I also play both factions. Pugging M+ Alliance side is significantly worse and it has nothing to do with the addon.

    Nonsense is the perfect word for your posts.

    How can an in-game experience score give "control to incompetent people"?
    I mean everybody can make their own group and invite whomever they want based on whatever criteria they want.
    Why can't the "oppressed and gatekept players" not man up and group up and get shit done in-game? Why do they need more experienced players to play the game?

    People want to play with people who know what they do. This system greatly increases the likelihood that you will have a pleasant and non-toxic experience.
    Such a system will allow you to increase your chances of filtering out the toxic, entitled players.

    Added:
    For players that care and respect the time of their fellow gamer raider.io is a godsend: It makes the game much less toxic as it helps you greatly to avoid the toxic, entitled players.

    But I can agree with you that the in-game experience must have gotten much worse for the toxic, entitled players that have to play more with players like themselves. It can't be an nice experience.

    try taking someone blindly into a +15 not even looking at ilvl and not looking at rio and then good luck.

    Edit: OR invite someone into arena with no xp and some crap gear and let me know how fast you made it to 1.8k

    No. That is the point. It wasn't rat race. Rat race always happens at super high end BUT the game was not about it.

    People don't seem to understand that wanting to play with people with similar experience IS NOT the same as labeling you as number.

    The same way gear can be represented by numbers which makes it extremely boring. There is no fluid dps/survi slider.
    However people skill cannot be represented by a number and that is what is completely wrong with rio.

    You said corruption was great system. Can't find it and proceeds to lie again.

    It isn’t. It’s hardly rio’s fault (infact I’m NOT against rio as I said multiple times) but it’s an issue indeed.
    No, cause i said your logic if flawed.

    You need to understand how massive the game is and how irrelevant your presence is, when you actually realize that, you will understand the problem.

    The 99% considers AoTC/KSM as this "goal" to achieve.

    Do you know the reality of those things and how irrelevant they are for an actually skillful player, do you understand what a snoozefest those content are?

    Can you comprehend that there are depending on the period of the game, up to 50k-100k-300k people online daily in EU LFG with more qualifications than you therefor of course the xxx.xx1 player wont get accepted easily?

    And you can realize, in those thousands of players, lets say 100.000 players, there are literal 20 different ranks of actual game "skill", and the rank 5 vs the rank 20 is literally night and day in terms of skill and knowledge and you are even lower than that in terms of Period of Game = Achievements/Ilvl/R.io?

    This is what people dont understand and thats why you are being told, "Create your own groups and find a guild", cause you are not anyone special or you dont have any proof that you are special to be given the "Green light" to do whatever you want in the pug world.

    The Holy Paladin with 3k r.io in every season before, and 5 cutting edges, and 2 gladiator titles has the green light when a new expansion launches can join whatever group he wants with his qualifications, and he doesnt even need to cause he is probably surrounded by similar players.

    Your account with "500 transmog runs" and "Normal Throne of Thunder" the 6th month of its life as the only relevant achievements, does not have the green light to pug anything.

    I know you still cant accept it, cause "ITS A GAME" or whatever else excuse, and thats why you will always be facing this problem since you refuse to adapt to the problem.

    Agree to disagree ever since WotLK it's been a rat race where players looked at metrics to help determine whom they wanted to bring in for group content.

    Technically it's not just skill but also knowledge. It's just not possible to have a high r.io score (800+) without sufficient prior knowledge of the dungeon (including boss mechanics to routes to target priorities per trash pack).

    And if people's skill cannot be represented by a number... what the heck is PvP rating then? Think of r.io (or in-game M+ score) as a rough version of PvP rating but for PvE M+ content.
