Going to delete my content - eh Mods?OK, I'm obviously not welcome here.And just to add to that. Anything questioning King adamsm is dealt with summarily, while his troll posts all go without question.Cheers.
Lots of people posting that they hate CRZ, and just you trying to come up with appropriate fanboy responses. What do you think that means?That surprisingly, the game doesn't belong to any one person, and those who are !@#$%ing, whining, complaining, and just in general being little pains in the ass should man up and stop? Because seriously, acting like they own a zone, and that everyone else should leave while they are, are just being idiots.Though you know, started a new customer service job, where they keep track of complaints and the like, and they found about 10% of their customer base were incredibly vocal about things they hate...while another 90% was in the silent pleasant group who liked the company. Any time someone comes up with the 'Lots of people hate anything in Blizzard', thoughts like the above come to mind, since lets be honest, the vocal minority are always the ones screaming the loudest while those who don't have a problem with the game aren't saying anything at all.
First of all, let me clarify a few things:1. I understand the intent and reasons behind CRZ. Many of them I agree with. It IS nice to see more players in formerly empty zones (I spent weeks in the old Auberdine totally alone, not a single other player there. That sucked.) It's nice to have more people with whom to interact.2. I enjoy PvP. It's fun and I do it. I do my share of ganking, do the bgs, raid cities, have battles out in the world - that's part of what the game is and you either learn to enjoy it and take part in it or you don't. 3. I understand completely that there will always be jerks in this game whose sole purpose and sole source of "fun" is to harass other players. Ignoring them is the best tactic and that's what I do. Having said all that:I am so very very sick and tired of ALWAYS having to stop gathering/questing in any and every zone because there are roving gangs of players (we're talking 5-10 or more here) who are doing nothing but jumping other single players. I'm not talking battles, or one-on-one, or even ganking. I'm talking 10 players suddenly zapping me, a single player, then camping my body AND the graveyard so that I can't rez. These are not players from my server. This happened to me the other day 5 times. One time it was over 15 players, all high level, who had camped a portal and were zapping everybody who came through. Even if you're level 90, getting hit by 10 players at once doesn't give you any chance to fight back. Okay, so that happens, so what. The "so what" is that it kept me from playing the game on any level for OVER AN HOUR. Yes, I "reported" them. I opened a ticket. I sat and waited. After an hour I just had to log out. This is not PvP. It's harassment. The players who do this are able to disappear before anything can be done. For some reason, apparently, this has become the sport of choice for many other players, because it's happening everywhere and it's getting worse. It's harassment because I'm paying money to be able to play this game and when I have to sit for OVER AN HOUR and not be able to play just because some other players are being mean (and stupid), my money and my time are being thrown away. This isn't fair. I'm not part of the "vocal minority" btw and by labeling people that way you are being exactly that. You are making a generalized blanket statement about something that can't be proved either way. And you are acting like YOU own the zone by saying "This is how *I* want it, so suck it up and quit whining." You don't know those people or their experience or circumstances. If WoW is supposed to be this, gangs of players who roam around looking not for PvP but lower level and/or single players to harass and prevent their playing, then why on earth add all these new things for "casual" and solo players to do? Why make things accessible to those types of players and then make it impossible for them to play? Again, I'm not talking ganking or world battles. I don't even mind being jumped by 5 or 6 players and ganked once or twice while I'm out in the world. But for over an hour, by the same group of players who are getting absolutely no game reward for it? That's mean and petty and Blizzard is the culprit here. There is no way to report this. There is no opening a ticket because there is nothing that a GM can do. The players are gone, my hour is gone, and my desire to play is gone. Again, it's in EVERY zone, all day long. My play is delayed, whatever I have/need to do is delayed or simply gone, my time is wasted. Everyone in my guild is experiencing the same thing and none of them are happy about it. This has nothing to do with low pop/high pop servers or questing or gathering depletion. It has nothing to do with "community". It has to do with harassment, plain and simple, and this is Blizzard's problem, not ours. It's been said over and over since the start of CRZ; apparently Blizzard chooses not to listen. They are ignoring what's being said, passing over the complaints, and choosing NOT to implement anything that might help. Instead the players that experience this are told that they're not saying what they're saying, they "don't understand" the concept, or that they are whiners and in the minority so just shut up about it. I thought it might die down a little after a week or so, but it hasn't. It's gotten so bad that there's literally nothing for me to do now but sit in a city. I can't do achievements or level professions or craft things. Queing for bgs and dungeons has become impossible, acquiring gear is impossible, my valuable playing time is wasted and why? Because the people who MIGHT be able to fix this are not listening? Or don't care? All I want is a little defense against the players who AREN'T PLAYING THE GAME BUT ONLY WANT TO KEEP OTHERS FROM PLAYING. I just spent a half hour waiting for the gang inhabiting the area I was in to leave. They didn't so I did. I went to another zone and found the same old thing: a gang of 5 - 6 players waiting for someone to harass. I can't always call on guildies to come help. Sometimes I can't pick and choose what time I log in to play, I only have a certain amount of time. The last few days I've almost not been able to play at all and certain zones are completely off limits. That's wasted money for me.I'm asking for help here, Blizzard, not whining. HELP! Please.
Odd that people say it's a "vocal minority" who dislike CRZ.I haven't met one player in the game who likes it. Some are neutral on it, the rest are very strongly negative.Is it true that people requested the ability to opt-out of CRZ, and were told the option would not be made available because "too many people would use it?"Here's a clue: if so many people would opt not to use CRZ, maybe this is something that is not enhancing the playing experience for a significant portion of your paying customers.Go ahead, claim it's just people whining. Even Blizzard admits it's broken. I hope they eventually get around to doing the right thing. It wasn't broken to begin with. CRZ broke it.

CRZ broke it.CRZ on my realm doesn't rate a mention in chat.When lots of people are unhappy about something, you know about it because people sound off in chat.With something like the zombie plague, you knew that a lot of people were unhappy because it was obvious in chat.I'm not seeing this dislike for CRZ that you and others appear to be seeing.
I guess we've been hanging out in different zones.
This idea was stupid and just a way for Blizz to cut cost. The reason for realm consept from the beginning, was if YOU only killed lowlevels they would have a chanse to give back. Now the games only point is kill all players that are lower level then youself ,mount and run when same level comming...Is this the new start Blizz talked about THE WAR No more fraction kuddle NOW we start killing all lowlevels. PVP realms with 98% from one fraction 2% that just not only have to fight the 98% but also fight cross realm...Blizz what you want is not the same as players want, sadly you loosing the battle, gladly you are so ignorant so you dont care....Yet I remember the great guilds, the great left now it´s just a guildFunny how all on 98% coward servers thinks it´s a good idea.
