May 19th 2008 6:45PM 'I like the idea of going with a gear matching system, matching people in like seasonal gear as much as possible. '
If this happened then there would simply be a huge amoutn of thorycrafting on what the 'best' set of low end green stamina gear is best for arena. ie: my rogue and preist team will work really well at the level 69 green bracket.
Perhaps people then removing neck pieces to lower there Ilevel for the gear matchups... interesting but ultimately pointless.
I think Blizz really missed the ball on this one, they are making it more difficult to sell teams that is true, but they're still punishing those playing for fun by forcing team sellers into fighting against lower ranked teams!
The only way this will be sorted in my opinion is if peopel are only allowed to be in 1 team per month to prevent mass selling and swapping, if ALL matches were based on the HIGHEST RATING of ANY member involved (But points were still based on your own rating if you were more than 100 poitns away from that rating) and finally that Blizz police team selling RELIGIOUSLY.
Now they certainly did do some serious punishments to those who were win-trading or selling, (Honestly an applaudable move, anyone who disagrees is simply trying to abuse the game through a loophole and we dont really need those people) but I am saddened they failed to put in somthing like matching teams based on highest personal rating of any member,
Essentially if that happened taking a 4man S3 expert team with a 1 man paying idiot would be a serious liability and gain the newbie very little.

Ok lets just get somthing straitended out here, In TBC Blizz decided the progression was Karazhan, Gruul, Magtheridon, SSC, Zul Aman, Tk....
So honestly it's not suprising kara zan be done with a bunch of guys in blues given thats what it was DESIGNED to be completed by (Dungeon Set 3).
Blizz have never tried to design a 10 man raid harder than any fight upto SSC level, saying that 10 man raiding is easy and then siting the entry raid into the whole of TBC content is like saying 'Elites are easy look a level 12 can solo hogger'.
you're taking it out of the context it is in.
I fully believe Blizzard will be able to create 10 man raids in whcih teh encoutners are incredably difficult, your tales of 'complicated' 25 mans usually are complicated by the fact 24 other people are also performing tasks, you yourself as the individual often do not complete such amazing feats of micromanagement...
Those fights that DO require large amoutns of player skill end up requireing 10 skilled players...
Apr 12th 2008 6:46PM I'm honestly not hurt so please dont worry yourself, but you're wrong if you think he is trying to protect my feelings. He was just pointing to you that your attempts at projecting your anger and ill feeling in your own life at someone else over the internet has failed and that you should do yourself a favour and not repeat such a sham.
As someone else did say this is just a protective measure. I was breifly brought under the impression that your average key logger can and does map your clipboard routinely. It turns out this is not the case.
