@SintharI was hoping I could let this slide, but since the core point of your post was to state that I shouldn't distort what other people say, I just need to bring this up;"(BTW telling someone to grow up and learn something is insulting and rarely going to be effective)"You took what I said out of context, I'm aware it was unintentional, because you misunderstood what I said, instead of being rude, I will try to explain it so I'm clearer, as the example I gave didn't seem to work.This is what I actually said;"Take comments like these as a means of learning and growing."Growing, not grow up. It has nothing to do with maturity, age or the emotional handling of confrontation discussions (which I honestly honestly did not intend with my original message, my follow up didn't help, but hey, no edit button). It's to do with taking what is said and using it to get better at what you do. Learning is not something that stops with age or experience. I doubt very many of us have a true grasp of game design. I'm certainly no expert, otherwise I would have a job in it, but I have learnt from past experiences when people have pointed out why an idea I had would not work...hell, people still do that. I simply accept what they are saying, and more importantly, I try my best to understand their view even if I don't agree with it.Now, as you can see, you mistook what I said and distorted it to make me seem (even more) of an arsehole, but what is important in situations like this is that the debatants understand the intent. You were not trying to make me come across as an arrogant prick, but rather you read it in my post and responded in kind. However, one more time, that was NOT my intent. My intent was very innocent, and that was to explain why the MoP talent system would not work well if the choice was given every 5 levels, I then proceeded to explain how it would affect the way Class and Specification abilities would be distributed. Finally, I explained why how the new talent system's pacing of new abilities is no different to that of the current talent system. That one was poorly worded, and that was a bad decision which I made because I clicked reply too early (as you can see from my posts, I don't proof-read, and I really should've learnt to do that on here by now).
