Well I am a newbie to these things compared to all you sour old foggies =PIt was fun and a quick way to blow off some steam exterminating the enemy - why do I fell like a Dalek? - though as actual storyline goes, it does feel like we get dropped in too little too late. Dang it the Alliance needs real air ships and something with a bit more timeliness than gnome intelligence opperations >_<
Extremely disappointing. If all them will be like this I don't think I'll do them more than once. Scenarios feel short and they lack the sense of achievement dungeons and questing have. The loot box that just randomly gets dropped in your bags at the end, somehow makes me feel cheated out of something important. Maybe its just because mine seems to be filled with nothing by fireworks 90% of the time.I get the feeling Blizz will need to do some massive tweaking between now and MoP launch to fix scenarios, if they do at all.
I think my biggest disappointment was that they weren´t even tuned for the minimum ilevel. I get that a person with ilvl 400 will faceroll what is basically casual content.. but even on my alts with crappy gear ( one of them even had to cheat with an item in my backpack).. there was absolutely no challenge.Not only did I not have to use any abilities besides my main attack abilities, but I didn´t even have to be precise with anything. I guess I was just thinking of them the wrong way.. I was thinking they would be a notch harder than daily quests, but not as hard as heroics... but in reality, this might be easier than daily quests. I certain killing ´problim´ would be much more difficult on my alts than anything in the scenerio.
I do agree on the fact that, they dropped the ball on this. They could have done a little small event or cinematic, maybe give some backdrop before just sending us in and say...."Oh hey go blow this up, kill this, oh and this and this." . They could have even had shouters in both Org and SW shouting for heroes, in the case of Horde sign up for a chance to do a covert operation in the glory of the Horde. Or for Stormwind, Heroes willing to go recover what was lost due to the Hordes, attacks. So yes I'll agree that most of this left a bad taste in my mouth. My main point though was this is NOT a world event. Its really only a preview of a new system being added in MoP. Like everything in game its the players choice whether to play the Scenarios, Dungeons, Raids, or even questing content. They just thought to show us one of the new features coming out. Could they have done better with this..Yes they could have. Are scenarios going to be fun, who knows, they could work on more back story for those not willing to buy the books or who can't afford them. Who knows how this Scenario will actually play out when we are at level 90. Will it be easy, or will the tuning be so fine that we need to balance everything. Just remember Blizzard even stated in numerous posts that Scenarios were meant to be done without a healer or tank.So they might not have been put in for difficulties sake, but just for having a bit of fun with a couple buddies.
Was anyone else disappointed at running it many MANY times and getting nothing but fireworks?
My main also got nothing but stupid Fireworks!
I think the worst part about this is...I actually took tomorrow off work for this event (expecting it on Tues.), and when I saw the post about it dropping today, I was pretty ticked off. But, I made it though the day....avoiding Wowhead to not spoil the surprise. Got home, logged on and qued up....and got,,,,,a 15 minute faceroll book report about a book that I have intention of reading. This is worse than when someone leaves 1 spoonful of ice cream in the container, and puts it back in the freezer, and you see it and think "Ohhh! Ice cream!".....ah HELL!
Wow queue time really shot up. I guess no one wants to do it anymore. =(
I have run it on Both Alliance and Horde. For the most part I don't have an issues. The Greatest issue being that my Ret pally can solo it with no problems.That and I want the shield to moggle...For People that want to do these, Don't use the Finder get a Relm Group its alot faster and should be easy to get 3 people.
