Feb 27th 2009 2:19PM Your post is passioned, but seems a little biased, obviously since you play warriors so much.
For sure warrior viability in arenas need to be improved, since they are the least represented class in certain brackets.
Again, part of the problem is balancing PvE vs. PvP. They should look into giving warriors more counters if they are going to nerf their DPS.
However, part of your complaints don't really make any sense and seem like just QQ......you are complaining about lvl 77 warriors getting ROFLstomped in Wintersgrasp? Really? OF COURSE THEY ARE. Any level 77 is going to get trounced by a bunch of 80s, not just warriors. If they aren't, then you can legitimately say the class is OP.

1) So what if someone in the stands can get gold medals? The record book will still show who actually won the event. Just like in WoW. Nihilum has a number of world first kills, just because others are running around in Illidan loot doesn't mean people will forget that. The gripes come from the bronze medal winners (hello Risen!). They aren't #1, and they apparently don't feel as special if others have their "medals" as well.
2) Did you know people can sell their medals and you can buy them? Doesn't mean people are going to think suddenly you are the fastest person in the world, or the best weightlifter, the best ice skater....whatever. But you can still buy that medal if you want to. Say you bought one of Jesse Owens' running medals.....are people suddenly going to think you are one of the greatest sprinters in the world? Gimme a break. Same with loots. Someone who has T6 level badge loots isn't going to be viewed in the same light as someone sporting T6 level raid loots.
Feb 26th 2008 6:51PM Absolute worst for me was "Tanaris Field Sampling".....not only does it involve more than 1 zone, but then you have like a 90 minute timer to get it done, and then you have to kill a bunch of mobs, and not every mob gives you the item you need....just to get a crappy reward.
The worst of all worlds.
Feb 4th 2008 1:29PM You're missing the point. The main point isn't that you need a flying mount, but that you need to be level 70 to get into Netherstorm instances because of the need to fly. Currently, everyone except druids needs to be level 70 before they can get in, which means they need to be level 70 before they can get Kara attuned.
Jan 16th 2008 2:29PM I guess you play Alliance. You conveniently left out the point that all the defense in Frostwolf keep doesn't matter, because Alliance rarely ever goes through the front between the towers, and when they do, they just race straight to the Horde Relief Hut....better yet, they take advantage of the map and NINJA the Relief Hut, usually within 5 minutes into the game.
That used to matter a lot, when the only objective was killing the boss, when Alliance could bypass essentially the entire map and ninja their way to victory.....where were you crying about map imbalance then? For that matter, has Blizzard EVER addressed this issue and added measures to prevent this loophole? No.
And now you complain the map is not in your favor. It's valid, don't get me wrong, I just find it funny when it is in your favor, there is no argument as to how to best repair it. Again, the complete lack of mention of how Alliance can just NINJA into our base and take our Relief Hut shows this article is again more about Alliance whining and less about map balance.
And FYI, the main reason Alliance no longer queues for AV isn't because they keep getting beat. Alliance can, and does, win if they learn to adapt to the map. Everytime 2 or your rogues or druids decides to go down and ninja the Horde Relief Hut, even though this strategy isn't working anymore.....is 2 less people on your offense or defense. Alliance just doesn't play any semblence of defense anymore.
The main reason Alliance doesn't queue anymore is because you no longer get much honor for losing, plain and simple. When the map favored Alliance, Horde would still queue up for your ninja/steamroll because we still got some honor out of it. Now, if Alliance loses, you get almost nothing for 30 minutes of play, which I think is unfair. If Blizzard would restore some honor for losses, I doubt you would have much more to whine about. If you don't like AV, queue elsewhere. What do you think Horde was doing all of last year?
