Well that sucks - Why remove it, now what do we get for it...Nothing.
Great, so top guilds will stack armor types then within clears as much as possible.Feels like this change was intended at those guilds, and the above is literally an easy way to get around it.Or am i missing something?
why the contradiction? A hotfix to keep "top guilds" from stocking up on TR, but it won't affect them because they stack armor types in split runs. Sounds like a waste of time and resources.
"top guilds were doing multiple split runs to acquire more Residuum in preparation for the raid.Top guilds may not be affected as much either by this hotfix, as they have many alts and can stack all of one armor type into a run to continue to funnel TR to one person."Then wtf even bother with a hotfix? Seriously, anyone have an answer for that?
I don't really see the point of this hotfix. I mean most players will only be getting armor that their class can use with how the forced personal loot system works. I guess it was a big enough issue that big guilds were going around this ... but if the guild was big enough to have enough people /alts to be running to get that much they can easily just stack the same armor types.
These "fixes" just seem outright antagonistic at this point.
Makes sense to me. Don't know why people feel the need to whine about very little thing. Honestly, I had assumed this was put in place from day one. If there's anything to whine about, it's the lack of foresight on their part that people would try to abuse it.
Just make TR *ONLY* available for items each player actually receives via looting or bonus roll.No TR from traded azerites items.Take way all TR gained from traded scrapped items. Boom. Problem solved.
Instead of doing a hotfix that you know wont worl on your target you should just do a hotfix that you know will work.Why dont you just do that azerite gear not looted from your own character wont give you any TR, at least top guilds qould be affected, but anyway this hotfix comes too late one week before the release of the next tier is a bit late imo
Another band aid fix for broken azerite system... Why not just scrap it?
Because people who were siphoning TR ruined it for the rest of us. That's why they had to jack up the price of 415s to 7k.It makes the system meaningless if people are buying full 415 on week 1, clearly that's terrible design and if they left it in every guild would have to do that to remain competitive which is even worse.
It was necessary. Split running the first 2 weeks in M0 dungeons next season and funneling every azerite piece to one person, you'll get about 150 residuum each time you do that. So for roughly 2h of time, you can gain a lot of residuum for your raiders, and its almost 10% of a 415 piece each time. Personally I find the residuum system awful and manipulative, as it requires mythic raiders to do more menial content to stay up to date. Theres really no good reason to have residuum available for scrapping gear outside just providing another carrot.
See now why they removed master loot? and made gear untradable if you don't have better ilvl than it? and even with that it's still not enough to stop this split runs bs.All those top guilds were crying for master looter at 8.0, and instead of taking it easy, they double down. I hope Blizzard just say F it and screw them up( idk, make gear bought with TR not usable in raids the first weeks, do it Blizz !)
