    why does one have to be less than the other? why can't they all be equal.

    I dunno, he tends to brawl a good bit & does not mind shooting it up at times; definitely an Outlaw Rogue...

    Another Outlaw Rogue, Captain America; dual wielding Fist Weapons in Avengers: Endgame...

    Microsoft? They will own the company but I am 100% sure they entire WoW team will remain the same. Why would they go and fire people to replace them, why bother?

    Microsoft bought them to make money, it's not a good investment to change things up. Absolutely nothing will change in the games, just the high ends will be affected and X bank account will fill instead of Y.

    It will probably be the same, "finishing" moves 5 times before the mob dies & half of autoattack hits misses.

    rogues could be in danger.

    normally, when MS is taken over companies, after dealing 70 billions, Phil Spencer does carefully watch how things are going. he is known for his detailed look at what exactly MS has buyed. one of the typical first things he does in his job is

    - look if the game design works well
    - look if all classes are balanced
    - look if a class like hunter is too casual
    - look if Druid class is too overpowered
    - take a deep look at Rogues

    these things are very important for his daily work in the first place. financee, profit, organization, teams, workflow… all this stuff is ofc important too, but will nonetheless come at 2nd. because „it’s the small details, that makes millions“ as Phil Spencer said a few years ago, when they took care in the last XBox design, as they decided to use a darker green for their platines.

    so, since Phil Spncer is known for hating Rogues in nearly every game, and as said above, always have some dedicated look at the details, it „may“ be possible, he start redesigning the Rogue class in some way. so they not always, years over years, lead the warcraftlogs dps stats. at the moment, ofc, ppls are in charge, that love the rogue class design and always let em perform well. but since Phil Spencer is a well known Rogue hater it is definitely possible, that one of his first actions is to utterly redesign rogues. and not for the good.

    but its a long time till mid 2023. the best thing we can do, is to watch all of this carefully. as Phil Spencer once said: „if you don’t watch things carefully enough, on a daily base, you become stupid AF faster than you can write a troll post“.

    Microsoft is currently in talks with tom cruise, speculation is that he is going to lead class design and ofc we all know he is heavily biased towards warriors. Wouldn't be surprised if we see insane overpower buffs following the microsoft acquisition followed by a reliance on dodge mechanics being added to classes like rogues.

    Bill gates is also quoted as being heavily anti caster, and despite his affluence in the tech industry he is very opposed to mechanicals, did you hear about his disputes with stephen hawkings? Probably why tinkers were scrapped and dracthyr were only a last minute addition to dragonflight.
