Congrats to all the winners! I am so ridiculously jelly of all of you. :(Someday I will have a TCG mount... someday!
I see a lot of names I recognize. GRATZ!
OK, I agree with the nerf on normal mode, maybe, but why HC mode? The argument that they want to let people see the content doesn't hold up for the HC mode in DS. The whole idea of the HC mode is for the no lifers and raiders who have put together a good team and find the normal modes way too easy. The top guilds on my realm downed DS normal in one night, but none have completed the HC mode to date.Do they want it nerfed? Of course not, they want the satisfaction of downing the HC bosses as they were meant to be downed, the HARD way. I used to raid top end on my realm but decided to take it a little easier. I can understand why Blizz want to allow those players who have work schedules, family lives or other 'normal' things to do in their lives, see the content through something else rather than the 'no challenge' LFR. But leave the HC modes for the so called hardcore raiders?I have my own guild, it's a social raiding guild, we are only 5/8 normal because we lack decent ranged and are stuck on Blackhorn at the moment, would I accept the nerf if I am still stuck at the end of January? Maybe, especially if I think my team is losing the will to live wiping all night long, but I must admit that it will take away the satisfaction of downing that boss. I see gear upgrades as a means to an end, to move on to the next phase and have the right stats to do it. I don't see gear as a Gucci refinement to walk around SW in.The argument that it lets 'lesser players' see the end game content is fine for the normal mode and it achieves that aim, but there is no need to also lower the difficulty of the HC mode. It has nothing to do with getting the HC gear upgrades either to enable a player to move on to the next content. I didn't get any HC gear from any of the Cataclysm raids but it didn't stop me and my guild moving on to the next raid, because blizzard always make it easy to get the gear you need to progress in the new content through VP and new Dungeons. And lets face it, the HC gear isn't going to be of any use in the next expansion is it? We will all be wearing blues and greens at level 86 or so.So, although I agree in principal to the nerf on the normal mode, I don't see it as a good idea for the HC mode, if you're not good enough for HC raid content, just be satisfied that Blizzard saw fit to allow average players to experience the end game content on normal mode.
Anyone had their prize emailed to them yet? Thought it was going to be sent to us this afternoon.
i never win anything :( even rolls IN game....
Okay I just came back from school when I was like, aah maybe I should check if the winners are announced yet, and so it was. I started checking all the winners but I never saw my own name, so I just thought, aah well.. So I clicked Nathanyel's name just to have a look around when I clicked back, the first name I saw was my own and I just couldnt get a word out of my mouth, yet a million thougths going through my brain.I didnt know what to do! I just wanted to hug everyone @ Wowhead and say thank you! You are the best!Congratiulations to every winner, I wish you all a healthy and awesome new year!And for those who didnt win, don't give up! Someday it will be your turn to win! I just got my Reins of the Time-Lost Proto-Drake after camping for 2 years & 3 months, so some day..!
Not the same WoW anymore.Never seen a playerbase so whiny and %^&*!y about not being able to do everything without putting the proper amount of time and skill into it.I played casually in BC and only got through kara and gruuls. I was proud of what little I accomplished and didn't #$%^& about not downing BT.Its this attitude of I AM NOT AS SKILLED OR DEDICATED AS SOME BUT DESERVE EXACTLY THE SAME AS THOSE PEOPLE BECAUSE WE PAY THE SAME" is truly what made this game the cesspool that it is now.
Gratz to the winners.Has anyone else noticed that the Blue Post bleeped out scrapping?sc@%#!*#... I freaking love Blizzard.
