why dont you just stop playing the game if its so boring? asshole
Jul 3rd 2008 7:56AM I outranked twinks in damage output and killing blows for a week straight in BG's on a 37 hunter in mostly greens from leveling after listening to them brag to each other about how much gold they spent on gear. That's when I formed my opinion of twinks.
May 12th 2008 9:32AM Solex, i noticed a contradiction in your piece in the first few sentences i just wanted to point out. You say that arena takes more skill than BGs, but coordinating a 25 man requires more skill than a 10 man. Let's think about this. 2v2 or even 5v5 arena requires more "skill" from the individual players involved because you are part of a smaller team where your contribution to that team requires you to carry more weight in order to succeed, correct? I mean in AV, you could put someone on follow and go get a sandwich and it wouldn't affect your raid as much as say, doing that in a 2v2 arena match. Now use that same logic for the 10 man vs. 25 man arguement. When part of a 25 man, your contribution to the raid is mathematically less than being part of a 10 or even 5 man group. So even though the raid bosses have way more health and do lots of "stuff" in the 25 man raids, doesn't mean that you and your 24 other "well coordinated" buddies (which is a feat in its own right, to get 25 people to listen to directions, i'll give it that) are any more skilled INDIVIDUALLY than people doing 10 mans. All it says is that you prefer raids with larger numbers of people, possibly to compensate for a lack of......well i won't go there.
May 11th 2008 8:42AM Shouldn't everyone complaining about 10 mans being "easy mode" or casuals not wanting to put as much "work" into raiding, instead be petitioning to have 40 man raids brought back? because it seems to me that YOU don't want to put as much work in as the people who used to get 39 other raiders together to down bosses.
Personally, having done 40, 25 and 10 man raids, I enjoy the "heroic" feel of the more personal 10 man encounters, where I feel like my 10% contribution to the kill carries more weight than 4% of the raids compostion (25 man). Why do you constantly complain about the number of people that it should take to kill a boss anyway. I won't repeat things that have already been said in length, but nowhere in fantasy have more than a few heroes destroyed a great evil. Unless you want to reroll a level 1 peon, drop all your "sick" gear to pick up a pitchfork, and gather with thousands of others for a large scale battle. would that make it feel more epic for you? Get off your high horse, and realize that blizzard is trying to make the game and its lore more accessible for all types of players, other than just the elitist jagoffs that feel the need to bitch about anything that allows people with less time and dare i say, probably more skill, to play a storyline that fits with their playstyle, schedule, and idea of fun. So stop being jealous, plz.
