HOTFIX!Legendary as always, and my theme park ride of choice would be something like a wyvern ride around Halaa.
A logride.THROUGH BLACKROCK MOUNTAIN.Complete with real lava and animatronic dragons.
Themed rollercoaster based on the Yogg-Saron fight, but less deadly.
Theme: Blackrock mountain. That place got %^&*tloads of encounters and cool stuff.Allso, there are WAY too many hotfixes. Like you said, you can't know if your class will be the same the next day. I can understand that they hotfix major changes, bugs and all that. But hey, most things should go through a little bit of testing, and come with a patch, with actuall patch notes. I mean, they could just have the patches a bit more freequently. I'm just sayin', two months before a major patch. That's a lot of time, atleast with all of the bugs and fixes that we needed from the start.
yes lots of hotfixes... but finally shaman healing get buffed =D thats one hotfix i'll take :) tyvm sir, may i have another
I think they (Blizzard) need to carefully consider these hotfixes - while yes, it's great if something super ridiculous is fixed instantly, for the most part, hotfixes are either fixing just dumb, no foresight mistakes on their part *or* nerfing/buffing/fiddling with their never ending quest regarding balances.Sure, I don't think that anything that makes one class seriously OP should be left for a month but consider:a) thinking about things before implementing them in the first place and b) by buggering about with classes (especially continuously), you're causing people to become wary of the game itself.I'm playing Rift beta atm and we all know beta's are full of hotfixes - it's to be expected. However, some of the common themes in chat is that people are looking away from WoW because they think the game has now become unstable - unstable in the sense of they don't know whether they are Arthur or Martha. Many seem to feel that, while they love the game, they just don't know where they stand with it anymore.I've not yet raided in Cata (long story) but I can appreciate that, as the guys mentioned, you're in a raid, RBG and suddenly... ooooo hotfix.... ooo another one..... and the level of certainty you had in yourself and your ability to perform has just *poof* gone out the window.I can see why so many people seem to be almost hanging back from getting full on into raiding atm (well at least in my circles). Fluid states are not good for a business that relies on people's perceptions of stability and trust in the game and it's design.
With a hotfix going out almost daily, is this changing the way you go about your day to day gaming? I mean, what if you come across some wtfpwn _____ that your class can pull off, will you be put off on using it in fear of an insta-nerf?Yes. That's why I and my beau are both refusing to play. This has surpassed ridonkulous.Game mechanics veer so wildly from 'competitive DPS' to 'mind-blowingly-HORRIBAD' on a daily basis that both he and I are routinely horrified to learn what bipolar changes our main's classes are going through. He's a pally, I'm a shaman. C wut I meen? :/
