hey rossi how do you fell about totalbiscuit`s comments about u in his last podcast
6-02-2011 @ 7:24PM
Better question - Who cares about what TotalBiscuit thinks, especially since he treats his viewers/listeners like trash?

What exactly did he say?
... It scares me that you could potentially be taking him [Totalbiscuit] seriously while he rants on BluePlz--his SHOCK-JOCK show. He's told us time and time again to not take him seriously there. BluePlz is meant, as he as stated before, purely for entertainment and, in a way, teaching (as so you can create your own opinions on things).

What did he say about Rossi? I'd imagine it was negative, given the tone of your question and the fact that Totalbiscuit has an awful lot of negative things to say.

And @Bronzey: *Equips sarcasm cap*Oh yes, what a terrible person he is to do give-aways and contests every week through Around Azeroth, and furthermore even more terrible is he for wanting to appease his viewers to to the point of forcing himself to do content so much that it earns him a trip TO THE HOSPITAL. Indeed he does treat his viewers and listeners like trash. *Unequip*. *Eyeroll*.

Found this on totalbiscuit's twitter: http://twitter.com/#!/Totalbiscuit/statuses/73527946178080768 "Matthew Rossi is an idiot and WoW Insider is a joke, who cares?"

I found the totalbiscuit thing funny. The guy is quitting WoW since content he never has bothered even running (http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/ahnqiraj/totalbiscuit/simple) has been nerfed the same as it has been nerfed for the past 2 years when new content comes out. Course I always found him a bit annoying anyway.

Ah, that Twitter exchange explains it all. Blizzard announced the incoming T11 raid nerfs in 4.2 and in response Rossi made a post saying it's okay, while Totalbiscuit announced he was quitting WoW over it. They seem to have a difference of opinion on the matter.

Sounds like somebody hurt his pride. Over a video game.

@razion: Yes... He earns all that money from ads, and gets promotions because of his viewcount on YouTube... He doesn't HAVE to give things away, but it sure does bring in a lot of new subscribers. Haven't you noticed the way he talks down to his viewers, especially while he was doing his Cataclysm Beta videos? That was a huge turn-off for me, sorry that I don't want to give my money to someone who thinks he solo'd his way to YouTube's max level so-to-speak.

@Bronzey: I see it as him doing what he has to in order to make ends meat--I've heard on various of his sort of vlog posts that he does take his job seriously and that he is disappointed personally when he can't provide a video daily for his subscribers. That just doesn't scream selfish to me. And I'll give you that--I guess I don't notice how he's talking down to us. But then again, I'm not easily offended. When I hear him say something cynical, I don't take it personal, because I know it's not personal. But then again, that's just me. My appologies, Bronzey, I didn't intend to make this a 'thing'. Just wanted to put a different perspective into the mix. :)

Well, Mr Bain (ie Totalbiscuit) does have several good points- the greatest is usually something to the extent that making things progressively easier so everyone can complete it only serves to reward people for putting in progressively less thought into their actions.When has nerfing content past the point where it was already doable taught people the need for coordination and teamwork? In fact, all nerfing content does is makes the game more about gear and less about the actual people you play with. You want to play with so called "fails" because they are your friends? Then help them to do better, simple. You want to mindlessly pug content with anyone that just happens to have enough gear to get in? Well progressively nerfing content is grat for that.Nerfing content to the point nothing in the fight matters only serves to slowly dissolve group cohesion, not encourage it. One of the worst times I can remember in recent history for my large super casual guild for raiding was when ToC came out, nothing in ulduar mattered and the only "current" content that mattered was pretty much stupid easy.I'm not saying that nerfing content won't allow more people to see it sooner, that much is obvious. I am saying nerfing content to the point that you can pug 1/3 of the raid with idiots and still do fine is only going to serve to further propagate the lack of politeness, skill, and comraderie seen in game.

@RazionI understand entirely where you're coming from, but to be truly honest, that podcast was more insulting than entertaining, even knowing that he was taking the piss. Usually there's at least something interesting to hear, but that was nothing but spewing hatred at anyone who had opinions that differed in the slightest from his.Also, professing many times his hatred of ragequitters and then ragequitting WoW in what was effectively a "OMG WOW SUX F*** U BLIZZ OMG" vlog is, in my opinion, truly pathetic.

Beh! Each have their own opinion. I side more with Mr. Rossi. My guild is upset about the incoming nerfs and only 7 new bosses in tier 12, but I always repeat this to them. At the moment 33.76% have killed Nef, 53.35% Cho'gall, 39.22% Al'Akir (take from wowprogess.) If you've downed this bosses good for you. But half the guilds out there are still struggling with tier 11. When we got 12/12 it was closer to 75% of guilds were still struggling. People are making progress, but not that fast. Only a small fraction of guilds have made their way decently into hardmodes. If total is quitting because WoW is moving too slow for him or not providing enough content for him, he needs to stop and take a look around at the numbers. Not everyone is burning content through that quickly. I'm really sick of hearing, "ZOMG were my new raidz?! 7 bosses LOLOLLLLLLLLOLLLL!!!111!!!!111! fAilzZ"Seven bosses means I'll still get to do hardmodes for tier 11 or get to pick up things for guildies like late tier 11 tokens, trinkets, etc.
