This is a bad article. It's little more than an uninformative eant. You didn't even explain the changes, just ranted about them. I'm left wondering what the nerfs actually do...Also if you think charging out of snares won't affect pvp then you don't understand pvp in the slightest!!

Rant*still no edit button? Buncha lazies

did you even read the article? he explained exactly what the nerfs are.and he didn't say charging out of snares didn't effect pvp, he said he didn't notice the snares.

"Protection spec warriors, did you enjoy being able to charge out of roots and snares to get back to the boss fast? Well, thanks to PvP, you won't be able to do that anymore."First two sentences of the post. Seriously. Learn. To. Read. It's not even funny anymore.

No I didn't read the article. But yet I'm complaining that nowhere in the article does it detail the changes. That makes perfect sense.(end sarcasm)it hints at them but no it does not Ever "explain exactly what the nerfs were".... That simply doesn't happen at any point in the article. Instead it's a chaotic couple of paragraphs with nothing but QQ."liked being able to charge out of roots and snares?well now you can't thanks to PVP" doesn't say a whole lot about what the specific nerf was, it simply shows that Matt might be better off playing a PVE mmo rather than one that has both PVE and PVP.

Matt maybe you should learn to read yourself. Seriosly. Read what I said. Did I say you didn't even mention the changes? NO. NOWHERE. I said you didn't explain them and that remains true.Given the nature of this QQ of an article in the first place I don't really expect you to take constructive critisism well but this article is just really poor and you can do better.If you disagree with the changes fine. But don't add to the cesspool of unconstructive QQ. This whole post feels like reading a troll on the wow forums. I guarantee you ghostcrawler wouldn't find this to be constructive or helpful in any way.At this point continuing to debate this topic seems rather pointless. I've said what I feel take it or leave it.

"At this point continuing to debate this topic seems rather pointless. I've said what I feel take it or leave it."I'll leave it. I explained the Warbringer change. It will no longer clear roots or snares. What the heck else do you want for an explanation? That's all it will do. That's it. That's the change. I'll try in all caps. IT WILL NO LONGER CLEAR ROOTS OR SNARES.Shield Slam change? THEY don't know what it will be yet. Go read their statement. You want me to explain a change that they haven't even outlined yet? What am I, Nostradamus?Again. Learn to read. Then learn to read for comprehension. Because it is clearly beyond you.

Matt, I can read just fine. You really need to calm down.I regret starting this with "this is a bad article". That was clearly not the best way for me to open what is otherwise just a constructive feedback post.It is possible to disagree without hurling insults, or claiming someone can't read. I can read, I have very good reading comprehension thank you. I'm actually a genius. That doesn't really have any effect on this.CALM DOWN. This change is NOT the end of the world and it does NOT warrant yelling and treating other human beings like shit.

Yay matt!*gives a homemade cookie*

Downrated for saying hurling insults isn't the best way to communicate?If you disagree with what I said before so be it, but downrating THAT? You people are clearly going to be oh-so-successful in life. Not.

"I am a genius..."That made me LoL. Thanks for the laugh."This change is NOT the end of the world and it does NOT warrant yelling and treating other human beings like shit."Learn to read =/= treating humans like shit.Stop QQ'ing.

Some of the things I said came across much harsher than I intended and I apologize. Normally I would have edited them to come across less QQey, which was the very problem I had with the post to begin with. This is my fault and I apologize.You can disregard anything I've said prior to this. The one and only point I want to make is that instead of insulting people (and yes, "LEARN. TO. READ." IS an insult, don't try to convince me otherwise, that is how it was intended, and that is how it came across) we can have coherent discussions about changes. This is the problem with the WoW community (and I'm sure not just the WoW community but the Internet and the world in general). It is possible to disagree without thinking the other person is scum of the earth whose opinions mean nothing.Now, like I said, I understand I wasn't doing the best job of this myself, and for that I sincerely apologize. Let's all try to make progress towards discussing our points constructively without belittling the people on the other side. If you can't agree to that at least, you're not a person that's even remotely worth communicating with.

I'd think a genius would have the crazy notion that clicking the link pointing to the source material -- http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=22418633982&pageNo=4&sid=1#66 -- might spell out the changes for them if the article wasn't clear enough in the first 2 sentences. Just sayin'.

I'm downrating LuminousNerd's comments, but they won't get any darker. D:

LuminousNerd downrated for disagreeing with Matt, only because Matt is awesome and anyone who argues with him is downrated.Btw, Luminous, saying things like "cesspool" (way overused on the forums by the petty minded minority crying over stupid things), "coherent discussion" and "remotely" doesn't make you look smarter. Good spelling does (a quality of the WoW forums).
