Nov 14th 2009 10:03PM I can respect that. Luckily there is so much that this game offers that there is something for everyone. Unfortunately, not everyone is going to like everything. With the amount of players that play, Blizz simply just can't make everyone happy about everything.
However, this nerf, to an instance, that people are so vocal about and against, isn't going to change the fact people are going to *desert* and take the debuff, as stated elsewhere in this comment forum. And when I get Oculus in LFG I would rather the folk who don't want to run it, that they do desert. Because you being there, isn't going to enhance your gameplay, and you hating it, is not going to enhance my enjoyment of the instance. I would rather have 5 people who don't mind the place, and have fun with it, then a few people who don't want to be there, and are going to be curmudgeons about it. Not saying you in particular, but in general.
I mean, how would you feel, if you madly loved Wintergrasp, and got a raid full of folk complaining they don't like pvp. And then Blizz decided to give everyone who queues up for wintergrasp, the ability to one shot everything in the zone, so more people would join?
Nov 14th 2009 9:17PM Vehicle combat is *NOT* new to wrath. Two words: Mind Control. Back before Wrath, mind control, was a form of crowd control, in 5 man heroics(and even certain raids). And crowd control, and knowing how to use it, was what separated the good players from the bad players, as if you were bad at CC you wiped the group. Vehicles are *not* new, and they're not going anywhere. So you don't have to like it, but you might want to get used to it. That's the world of warcraft that you play.
And as far as gimmicks are concerned, Ever boss in the game is a "gimmick." PvE is based off gimmicks, otherwise, it'd just be tank and spank, and people would get bored.

Honestly, I just believe that's all an convenient excuse. It's not like "vehical combat" is new to Wrath. In either case, I sure do you hope you never playing a priest in any group I'm in. No Naxx for you!
Nov 14th 2009 3:04PM I have never heard such truer words. Personally, I love Oculus. It's an instance, where people are forced to do something other than push their 8 second channeled AoE spell. But in all honesty, this game, is just one large grind. Almost every aspect of the game, it's a time consumer. The reason people have such disdain for the instance, isn't because of the difficulty, or fail "pugs," because if you have a fail pug in almost any instance, it can be quite annoying.
However, the one aspect that makes this instance different, which is the drake vehicles, takes people out of their "comfort" zone that blizzard has given them due to little AoE being utilized. Different, is scary, and hense people don't like it. But in all honesty, it's not a difficult instance, the drake scaling on gear makes it even easier, and it's because of the difference in mechanics that makes Oculus my favorite instance of WotLK 5 man's.
Nov 8th 2009 10:08AM Can't agree more! My girlfriend and I are leveling alts, her being a healer(we all know how painful that can be, but she's crazy and enjoys it) and after so many times leveling in the same content, doing a dungeon w/o spending all day looking for a tank or dps on at our level to break the grind will be nice, and the loot will be great! Cheer's to Blizz and their ever evolving ways of making content more accessible!

Aug 23rd 2009 8:36AM I like Hogger, he and I became really good friends. But we both came to the conclusion, that he was WAY too l33t for me, and decided to kill me. I wept that day...
Aug 22nd 2009 5:53PM I hope someone just blankly asks, what they are doing with other classes. "where is our class discussion?"
Aug 21st 2009 2:20PM But this is WoW dot com, not Diablo dot com...
Oh who am I kidding, any news is good news at this point!
Aug 19th 2009 5:00PM "Fixed a performance issue with players logging into the game"
Yet, I can't log into the game...
Should read, "created a performace issue with players trying to log into the game."
