All the pure DPS classes that are QQ'n gotta think about shorter queue times. The more people that can get in as a needed class, the more that will get in that are dime a dozen. This helps everyone. I will agree that it'll be a good time to be a tank.
A page and a half of reading and FINALLY! someone understood what they're trying to do. Blizz are offering some non-game changer incentives to reduce the wait time of "pure DPS" in LFG.
So things that would take pure dps classes hours upon hours upon hours to get, tanks are just gonna get for playing? That hardly seems fair because dps are never going to be the lower role.Not only that, but it's making things worse for dps because of all the tanks in the wrong spec and/or gear. They'll end up waiting longer having to queue multiple times, waiting out the deserter debuff, waiting until they can kick the tank, or waiting for a new tank.....and the decent tanks that queue for these things will just stop once they get what they want so the first wait won't even be much faster.I'd rather switch to Rift than spend my time and money to farm out these things that other characters can just get gearing their toon.
If this encourages tanks and healers to do heroics more often giving the dps a shorter q time why should there be qqing, the change is for overall benefit, and my tank/healer already farmed for ravenlord am i complaining that it was wasted time? No. Most of the time tanks and healers have the harder job in heroics.... Stop moaning or reroooooll
To be honest. There will be no such thing as a balanced Dungeon system, EVER. To have the Q time be equal for tank, healer, and dps, there would need to be more tanks and healers than dps. Each group that starts has 1 tank spot, 1 heal spot, and 3 dps spots. Dps will ALWAYS wait longer. Therefore dps will never be the "needed role" and will never get goodie bags.
I think this change is great, encouraging tanks to queue up more and have an extra reward for all the stress of carrying 4 dps that mostly will care on how big is their dps and a poor healer that has to.. redundancy away... heal their mistakes?If you dont like it, roll a tank class and see the responsibility for yourself, tanking is not easy as it used to be in wotlk, wake up already!edit: in fact ever since vanilla, i can remember tanks 99% of the time had the responsability of carrying the group and having that extra awareness point for raid mechanics, bosses, positioning, threat, explaining fights, marking, and overall saving the dp's arseswho wouldnt love that extra reward?
they are trying to shut u up with ur continuous whining about long queue time and u still whine more! Those who play tanks and heals are well deserving of everything they get. u want to play dps, play dps and wait then.
Sure is butthurt in this thread.
Lets say a druid with no tank gear queues as tank, as soon as the group notice, wouldnt it be their part as well to kick that idiot from party rather than having the game decide if you actually have the gear for it?wow doesnt need an interface played entirely by automated mechanics, it also needs user's intelligence, thing that i have yet to see for the most part, regardless of how well you play, all these years laughing towards tanks and heals are now coming back to get you.... ahh the irony
I've noticed some people in this thread seem to think that after a few weeks every tank is going to have every rare mount or pet from this system. Let me remind you that even the best groups usually finish a heroic in about 30-40 minutes minimum and also that most tanks don't enjoy chain-running pugs. Just a quick bit of math (under the assumptions that the drops will be <=1%) tells me that it will take almost 100 heroics to get a pet or mount. Even if they're more common then that, this isn't WotLK, it'll take a good tank weeks and weeks of running heroics every day to able to hit that amount.I personally am pleased about this change, as it means my tank will have more reason to do heroics, which I have been avoiding recently because they can be so unpleasant, and also that my dps characters won't have to wait 40 minutes for their queue.
If this brings DPS queues below 10 minutes, everyone will sing its praises. Gutsy move by blizz.
I don't see how this is in any way fair to Rogues, Mages, Warlocks and Hunters.. Giving mounts people spend time farming in a bag that's obviously going to be exclusive to tanks? Might as well throw Glaves and Shadowmourne in there too..This isn't the way to solve the problem with a low amount of tanks..
Are people seriously qqing about this? "Noes Blizzard! i want a bag too, this is so stupid!..."We get a goody bag, you get ... let me see.. !shorter queue times!, queueing as the role with most people playing.Is there really guys wit this level of selfishness that they rather wait 40 min in dungeon queue, that letting other people get some more gold and goodies?
First of all, as a Protodin, i would realy like to wish this would come true. But since this is discriminating (Problem, DPS?) there would be helluva flame about this.Looks like i would have to farm these mounts with the good old way :(But in case this would come true, have they forgot about Reins of the Blue Proto-Drake and Reins of the Blue Drake?
