yea i think the whole QQ would have been just as big if blizzard would have posted the whole "diplomatic" wall of text instead of the pure facts. maybe it would have gone down a bit smoother but in the end it would have come out just as angry ;)however in my opinion the whole problem is something else. its something that blizzard is obviously doing and im not sure if it is the right approach for all of us. all this pve, pvp, solo grinding, aoe stuff is getting evened out way to much. what happend to class diversity? i was totally fine when mages and warlocks wrecked the dps meter in aoe situations. i was also fine when paladin tanks were the better choice for mount hyal for example.. thats just how different classes work. nowadays even rogues have aoe so they can keep up and be usefull in those situations.. furthermore they are even getting the cooldown on it removed.. hell no, they dont need aoe. just give them kick ass single target damage and maybe some dungeon/class design that makes this even more viable in raids.this would even work if there wasnt the second factor.. PVP. every god damn change they make in the pve world has to get balanced out in pvp aswell, since they opened the door to millions of people who enjoy that content and now they need to please them aswell. this is just not making the game more fun for everyone, its a way of selling it to the most people becuase now i can choose every class and basically do everything like everyone else.. maybe we should just remove all the classes and let us switch between healer, super dps and aoe tank with one button press.. oh wait, some classes are almost there anyways.i know this is a bit offtopic, but since this is a very thoughtfull article and this has been on my mind for a while now i thought i would share it here..
