Feb 21st 2009 5:24PM Yeah, the nerf to arc barrage sucked balls for PvP. Now out of the top 50 arena players there's like 1 mage.
I rerolled a DK as a result. At least you can bet Blizzard won't nerf DKs much because it'll hurt their sales of WotLK. =D
Feb 20th 2009 4:20PM As a creator of a top 10 facebook game, I've ran into this kind of problem many times.
The way to solve it is not by listening to users bitching, because they will always act in their own self interest, and instead by analyzing the actual data.
e.g. run a database query on how many of each class participates in arena matches, and for each of those classes, find out what the average win % is. If the average win % for dks is always higher than the other classes, there's a problem. In an ideal world the win % should be equal for all classes.
Feb 6th 2009 3:08AM Mages are like the last class that needs to be nerfed.
Feb 4th 2009 4:14PM I don't get how 2200 sp unbuffed for a mage is considered "modest gear" when the #1 mage on arena (Narfu) only has 2062 sp unbuffed.
