Doubling down on a bad system. Standard Blizzard.
+20~30% of coalescing visions is nice. A lot of horde wining incoming in 3... 2... 1...
So this seems like it will be yet another system in which the lesser represented faction (usually alliance) in a zone will get completely farmed while the dominant faction runs away with the bonus rewards Faction balance be damned
"You will be ineligible for the bonus if you turn off war mode during the quest" is interesting and new. I guess maybe they had problems with people bothering to run back to Orgrimmar and turn war mode on? I wonder how they'll implement this new change. My guess is different "Mogu Armament" items drop in and out of war mode, and you can't mix/match them.
OH LETS GOOOOOOOOO.As an Alliance player i will have 10%+25% extra! ; now is a good time to enable WM.
Imagine being outraged at "if you work harder you get better rewards". but i pay muh sub! me get same rewards!flying to a war zone having to worry about roaming death squads = working harder then just showing upqueuing to be part of roaming death squad, while completely cowardice and promotes a toxic environment is still more work then just showing up turning off brain and muddling through the quest before afking in your faction city and crying in trade.
Because alliance requires 30% bonus because they cant do competitive contents.
If you need proof that Warmode is a broken system, just look at how it affects RP realms.We only merge with other RP realms in Warmode, which means we merge with the roving raids of Alliance from Moonguard.There were many times when I was the *only* Horde player on Mechagon in Warmode, but still only got 10% bonus compared to the 25% the 100+ Alliance players got.
Another band-aid. This won't get people in the areas that matter to faction swap and it won't get Alliance to leave on war mode. Those that really care about a minuscule increase in rewards will turn it on, do the quests, then hearth and turn it off. War mode succeeded in letting people on PvP realms escape world PvP without spending hundreds on transfers and that's good but other than that its only "success" is that it frustrates both sides.
meh... I hate PvP. I wish there was a peaceful server for all of us play in war mode without actual war.
War mode would be a lot less stupid if it wasn't some horrible one-size fits all that doesn't actually reflect server population in the least.
