a nerf is a nerf. captha: viarn silverware?
Took only approx. 2 months for Blizz to cave in. I don't blame the bad players...I blame the good players who que in with the bad.I've seen many of the same people who were posting pre-cata about the poor quality of raiding ability of the WoW community now complaining about the bad que/pugs as if they were blindsided by it.It's like passing sign after sign saying the bridge is out up ahead and then taking a 30ft drop into the river wondering what happened to the bridge.I see the same people who said the game should be more then end game contents...level to 85 within days/weeks and rush headlong into ques...thirsting for end game contents. bleh. Blizz made an honest attempt to try to fix it...they revamped a broken leveling game and tried to entice players to go back down and enjoy the entire contents again. Seems like no one took the bait. Day after day we have people complaining about the ques/pug runs...these complainers are worse then players who repeatedly stand in fire. I've been in the trenches leveling several classes and it's been a joy. Better yet, I've run into new players whose newbish questions are a refreshing change from the smart mouth numnuts at the top.Just the other day I had a long conversation..with a level 15 explaining some ins and outs of the game. This person kept apologizing for asking one question after another, but I said "don't worry, I'll help if I can". After we were done that person was so grateful. Who knows...maybe a WoW friend in the making. For all you pinheads at the top not in a privileged raiding guild all I can ask is "what are you doing up there?" Why don't you let the bads que and spit venom at each other until the point where the majority of them have left the game. My God, is a few months away from raiding really going to screw up your life? Otherwise settle on the fact that bad has been rewarded again.I was afraid of this...now I have to take a long look into whether I want to continue...really the only reason left to keep playing are the good friends I've made. Friggin shame.
Everybody sniping Pezz absolutely fails at reading comprehension. He never said anywhere those are HIS perceptions, it's his opinion on the entire LFD situation and the community's perception overall. I think he's spot on.As someone who occasionally heals in LFD by myself, I welcome this change. And when I run my daily in a guild group (which I normally do), this doesn't affect me one bit. Getting 3 people in my LFD daily at 11:00pm local time, who have no business in a heroic (sub 6k dps/ sub 10k tps) is frustrating.
This is stupid. The difficulty curve going from heroics to raids is already immense...this will just make it worse. And, like others have said, what's the point? You'll still die to insta-kill stuff. All this will accomplish is making it easier for correctly geared people to carry incorrectly geared people leading to more entitled idiots in raids simply because they have gear.Screw it, nerf the @#$% out of raids already if you're going to do crap like this. That's what the majority of the non-idiots are stuck on right now.
15% doesn't seem a lot, I'm probably still gonna avoid heroics.
/sigh so much QQ, if you want hard mode try HC's with a non-random Group? the Buff adds 5% per random player found using the LFD tool SO if you want Hard mode just don't use that tool (Or get 4 people then use it to find one more, still get your points and the buff is only 5% instead of 10/15%)
Is blizzard killing their game?Where are all the people against the cata difficulty? It seems a majority of people are actually for the diffuclty, yet blizzard cant stop nerfing. Where are the "whiners"?One almost has to believe Blizzard is going against their customers on purpose.
I like the difficulty, but there are some encounters that are just a little too hard without the ideal composition, which is something that Blizzard said they didn't want.Examples: When we were first starting heroics, our group (at the time Prot Warrior, Rouge, Fury Warrior, Balance Druid, and random healer) couldn't down Springvale without kiting him away so the adds aren't part of the fight.Also, did Beauty with a Rogue, a Lock, a Mage, a Prot Pally, and a Holy Priest. Was only possible after maintaining CC on two pups, killing the third pup, renewing Fear Ward at least twice during through the fight and popping (and procing) both Guardian Spirit and Ardent Defender twice each. Maybe we were doing something wrong, but that's still our roughest fight and the fear is only thing that screws us up.
this buff will help low lvls its not about endgame hc
