    Speak about contradicting ones point...



    As I wrote in the same post, keep in mind the definition of the word. Now, its Youtube, TellMeWhen/WeakAura and not be a blithering idiot and you can faceroll everything up to M+ high keys and Heroic raid clear within mere resets.

    You keep writing about challenging in a vacuum which I specifically am avoiding. I'm well aware that bosses etc. need more mechanics cos the toolbox to do well with aid enchanced over the years along with player know-how.
    Point I originally made was that maybe its time for WoW not to let a Disc priest snooze and pull 4 mobs at the same time and just faceroll leveling.

    Bump up the difficulty across the board is the only way to save WoW in my view along with making it less Pay2win.
    And make it more social realm/guildwise. Not just stand in the capital with a queue and instant teleport to a dungeon with 4 random players and remove bloat mechanics like the zillion artifact power, anime <insert every expansion lately>.
    No, it was not challenging.

    Walking is not challenging is it? Yet babies and people in wheelchairs can't do it. Circumstances do not make challenge.

    Yes it was challenging for players back in 2004 but that does not mean that content is more challenging then current content, as proven by wow classic time and time again...

    "When it comes to the limitations on Covenant-switching, millions of players experienced Shadowlands for the first time through the lens of their Covenant of choice, and that would have not been possible had the choice carried less weight from the outset. "

    Why? Why is the number of players relevant? Are they saying their serves couldn't handle a high number of covenant switches? What sort of idiotic claim is this?

    After all the shit that's happened they are now feeding us more bullshit? Is honesty really something impossible from blizz?
    What? Where did you get any idea that it had to do with servers? Literally just sentence enhancement.

    I didn't know it was possible to make a patch preview remind one so much of a dog with its tail between its legs in shame but here we are, lol

    Because the number of the players was the only reason listed as to why it wouldn't work to have free covenant swaps at launch. In the bluepost... did you read it? Its a bunch of bullshit (or Sentence enhancment as you call it).

    Their description of the flaws with the conduit energy system perfectly reflect not only that system but covenants as a whole.
    None of us really changes over time. We only become more fully what we are.

Quitting WoW is an equivalent of protesting against animal testing and later going to McDonald's for a double cheeseburger.
    Exactly! Nice to see some common sense in this topic

    Ion's real name is Ian Hazzokistas. And if he needs someone to hold him in check then he's unfit to be the head of the team. He's assigned to the position. George Lucas took it for himself. And 5, a 6 only carries his name as executive producer, other people did most of the heavy lifting.

    They are implementing the right changes but too late IMO. I won't be coming back, even when 9.1.5 launches. Maybe if new content launches in 9.2 I'll reconsider.

    Take the maw skip on alts thing for one. That should have been a day ONE implementation, or at least 9.05 or earlier (right after launch, basically). I went through that maw quest on over a dozen characters and while it only took 30ish minutes, it was still a boring slog. It got slightly better when I got the maw mount back in February, but by then I'd already gotten most of my alts through the Maw so it was pointless for the intro quests and I took a 4 month hiatus after that.

    At this point I just can't justify logging in, so I canceled my sub and may reconsider when 9.2 comes out to see more content. I came back for 9.1, did the content and left.

    Problem 9.1.5 is a lack of content, which means we have been stuck on "I will never serve" for 6 months.

    Credit where credit is due. I'm pleased Bliz has made the decision to start adding more customization options to the game again and most of all happy they are giving Void Elves the blonds and white hair colors that players needed to complete their High Elves. Honestly this is the single most desired thing I have wanted for the past 15 years. And to all the anti High Elf players out there...get fucked. That said, this might have saved the game for me a few years back, but I think this like many others are saying is too little too late. At this point the only thing I can think of that would have me come back would be player housing. Even if it were just Azeroth Garrisons (because as unpopular as they were, I LOVED Garrisions). Anyway, big with for High Elf players still playing, grats guys only took Bliz 15+ years.

    I happen to know that many of these changes have been in the works since before 9.1 launched. They typically do major QoL changes in .5 patches. I'm sure the pressure may have expedited some of these things or influenced others, but as a whole this isn't a knee jerk response to the investigation.

    I would have much rather had 10.0 instead of 9.1.5

    That would have made me resub for sure.

    No that is not at all what the text says my dude....they are not in any way saying the playernumber is why it wouldn't work, how did you attach that far?

    Imagine knowing so little about game Dev that you think they just threw this all together last minute.

    Reminder bowling 9.1 took, but nah suddenly they are super duper fast developers.

    And again, what they did here is the same MO they have employed the last several expansions. They make things easier as the expansion goes on with each patch. "puilling the ripcord" would have removed the system entirely. Remember the changes to the artifact weapons,. They made it so you didn't have to re-grind things and gave free level ups. Ditto for Azerite Power in BFA. They already got everyone through the system as originally intended once then made it easer for everyone to get to max.

    Anyone knowing their MO knew that they would be eventually making things easier later in the expansion fort catch up purposes the day it released. Players are just spinning Ion's words it so they can say they were right.

    Funny, I'm an IT specialist for application development. Guess what?

    IT, not game development.

    No, it's Ion. Ion is, in fact, a name people have.

    Eeek, those squinting eyes for Nightborne really hits home just how awful the player model was in its original iteration...

  19. #459
    Never the less this is too little and wayyyyy too late. This is nothing but a tactic to pull back players that have left cause the game is too boring or cause players have seen that Blizzard is nothing but a bunch of ass grabbers and treat their workers like trash.

    My mistake. Then replace Ian with Ion, the sentiment is the same even if the name was wrong.
