All you QQers sounds like sellfish little kids who cry about the candy bar that the kid next door got, and hell ya, you want one too.Making the Call to Arms a dungeon specific or group wide doesn't help ANYTHING. If all know that they will get the bag by queueuing, that will just increase all queuers, not make the tanks shortage go away.THIS WILL LOWER YOUR QUEUE TIME. Get it? Is there a possibility that your little brains could fathom this little piece of information?Tanks will usually get a bag for lowering your queue time. Someties the healer will. And maybe, just maybe in future there is a moment where it is the DPS that will get bag. The possibility is there.All you want to do is revert this change, since you think that the tanks get "more" than you are getting.Nvm, I give in. There's just no arguing with stupid people. Please continue QQing.
I am seeing people calling others stupid or insulting them--there is no need to do this. If this continues, the thread will be locked and anyone who has done this will receive a warning. You can disagree peacefully. Some people think this is will reduce queue times and others don't. Some people think it's unfair to give tanks rewards and others don't. This is fine. Calling someone stupid is not.
I really really like the idea, until I read that Deathcharger's Reins were in the mix. That upset me. I did 200+ runs to get that mount...worked my butt off, and now they're just giving it away. *ANGER*
OK, so my last post I made after reading about this was rushed as I was leaving for work. I suggested making the goodie bad avaliable to everyone in run when the Call to Arms came up. Now, I admit, even right after posting it, the thought came to mind....this (kinda) leaves us where we are now...only with goodie bags for heroics.One one hand, that is exactly true....sort of. Making the bags avaliable to everyone on the run is pretty much the same thing as what Blizz did to stop the insta-dropping from Occlus runs. And, well, that "sort of" worked. Im not sure if adding the goodie bags would have enough of an effect to get tanks to que, if the bag was given to all players in the run....but really, it should have the same effect. In reality, even if the bags went to everyone in the group, it should be incintive to get tanks to que up. The only difference would be it wouldn't prompt a DPS to swap over to tank just for the extra loot. So while it wouldn't have as much of an effect, I think it would still decrease DPS que times. I dunno...in principle, I don't mind the idea that much...Im not gonna nerd-rage over it, but it is an interesting precedent for Blizz to be setting, as it is the one of the only things I can remember being implemented that targets giving additional rewards to a specific class. The only other thing I can even think of was the original Raven Lord mount being only for Druids. And even then, wasn't the mount open to all, you just needed a Druid to summon Anzu?I guess looking at it from both sides...I am happy that they are trying to reduce the ques...maybe my Warlock will get to see a few more Heroics now, but I also see where the DPS rage is comming from as well, because to be honest, I don't ever see a Call to Arms:DPS popping up. One thing I would suggest to everyone....if you have any decent ideas for changes that would maybe make the system still work, but be more "fair", get em to Blizz on the official forums, as I would expect they might actually be open to ideas on this one.
I agree, Ashelia. This needs to be locked before it becomes a massive flame war. While I love seeing people QQ (I'm evil, okay?) I don't think it is a good idea to start a war here. This was only 7 pages long yesterday, its post count has doubled, this is never going to stop, we need to lock this while it is still safe.
I don't agree with rewarding one (or in this case two) roles over another. There has to be another way and I feel that Blizz have now just taken the easy way out. Too bad for dps only classes or those who enjoy playing dps. Whatever happened to playing what you love?
