What, nothing about the original QQ-fest in vanilla WoW: Warriors in vanilla over Rage Generation? You know, the one where they protested, crashed a server, and then got exactly what they wanted handed to them on a silver platter (1.3)? If it weren't for those intrepid pioneers of the QQ all the rest wouldn't know that 'QQing Works'.

Did you play a warrior then?I did. Quite frankly, the QQ did nothing. Blizzard made those changes to rage generation because if they had not, they were facing a complete lack of max level warriors. It was agonizing to play one. You couldn't kill one same level non elite mob without it taking almost five minutes, and god help you if you got adds.And if you were prot! Just forget doing any quests that involved killing.

Matthew, most of the complaints we've seen in this game tend to be well grounded in genuine class issues, whether it be from representatives of the class you play, one you see as underpowered, or one you see as overpowered. But this is beside the point, if we're talking about occasions upon which a group of players have thrown a hissy-fit in order to get their way the US Warriors of pre-1.3 are the most obvious, classic example. Whether their issues have been as great or less significant, no other class went to the concerted and coordinated lengths that Warriors did in the early days. Not warlocks pre-1.4, not Paladins pre-1.9 or at any time pre-TBC when all they did was cast Blessing and cleanse spam.Compare this to all the 'Moments' Amanda Dean posted here. It deserves a place, whether or not the QQ (and level of QQ) was justified.
