I have to agree with Ashelia, asides, this topic has exhausted its potential and became a "im right!" "no you dont!" flame war, and for the sake of preventing further flames, should be locked if insults continue
Seems to me like this would create an interesting oscillation of queue times. When the times get too long, people will queue as tanks to get the extra rewards. When that happens, the queue times drop, and the rewards go away. This will remove the incentive, and the times star climbing again. It will exaggerate the effect when people who tank now get the mindset of "I don't want to do a run if I don't get the reward bag," deepening the troughs in the wave.Overall though, I'm cool with it. And that's speaking as a pure DPS who likes collecting minipets.
LOL wait till all the nubs starting queing as tanks and healers but doesn't have the gear or experience and wipe the group 20times and blame it on others >< Also this will bosst all the E-peens tanks out there to simply make them feel even more powerful therefore abuse the whole group even more. Good Job Blizzard. If it weren't for my left over time card I got ages ago I would never come back and I sitll will not renew my sub when it runs out.
Feeding players goodies so they actually join the queue?Yeah Blizz. You're totally not spoon-feeding players now. With all those rare gems and gold..
The sky-is-falling syndrome is running rampant in here. Remember all the QQ about the dungeon finder? How many people claimed to quit over that?I say good. Quit. If you aren't enjoying the game who's devs you seem to despise so much, why would you continue?
Ugh, aye Dralas. Stay away from him/her and gmail. Those are the two worst right now.
This change only benfit tanks 99% of the time. I always heal and love healing only (I got a level 85 pally and druid and I only ever heal in heroics). My que time is always around 10misn or less. Even with this change it won't affect me at all. HOWEVER, now Tanks will get even more rude, impatent or even more mean because they want to finish the heroic ASAP for their goodie bag. So while the rest of the group will suffer coz of this, the tank is given more reward? Yup sure make sense Blizzard.Also what if a fresh 85 went in and actually wanted gear off the bosses while the tank just out right refuse to do any boss that's optional? Do you think is fair for the fresh 85 then? If they even say something or object the tank would simply kick them coz they can. Have blizzard though about how will this affect new 85's?What about all the in-experience people at tanking but wants the goodie bag switch to tanks but without proper gear, skills or even the knowledge to tank? They are going to cause wipes after wipes and after wipes. Do you think that is fair for the group?What blizzard should have done is that when Call to Arms is active one random member from the group is able to get the goodie bag (notice it is random not assign to a specific role or anyting) and all dungeon boss must be kill before this is rewarded. This way no boss can be skipped and it is fair to say everyone in the group have a chance at getting the goodie bag.
