Mar 3rd 2010 7:39PM Of course, treeform droods are the most extreme example, but it's not like other healers can be completely discounted.
Mar 3rd 2010 2:31PM As a PvPer, the main thing I have to complain about is the ridiculus burst, and how powerful they had to make healing to compensate; I've had battles in battlegrounds where three dps has been wailing on a treeform druid and it's taken us minutes to get him down because cooldowns were already popped.
Jul 22nd 2009 8:39AM @Manatank: Except that blizzard has said "no new faction is coming" as late as about a week ago.
Jul 12th 2009 9:50AM Go download and play the trial for EVE Online, then come tell me one huge server is unfeasable.
Jun 28th 2009 10:11AM Lemons, the analogy is not only non-perfect, it's incredibly broken and does NOT apply.
Game design is NOT parenting. End of story.
Jun 28th 2009 10:06AM @Jam: Uhh... Wait, since when is unnecersary QQ called humour? Seriously?
I don't think it's supposed to be humour, man.
Jun 28th 2009 12:21AM Er, what?
Mages are not fine?
Are you playing the same class as me?
Frost sucks in PvE and Fire in PvP. That's fine, we are still one of the best balanced and designed classes in any MMO.
Sure, I'd love to have improvements, but "it's not 100% perfect" doesn't mean "It is NOT fine and blizzard NEEDS to fix this now, because warcraft is a democracy and I really have a say in stuff like this."
And seriously, to all of you pessimists who claim blizzard doesn't know what the fuck they are doing:
1) They created a game that millions play and they are making tonnes of cash off it, not you.
2) Yeah, Ghostcrawler misunderstood Mirror Image... But I bet he has a greater understanding of the class than any of you have of the classes you do not play.
3) If they are so bad at making games, why are they running a game you are paying to play?
This Arcane Brilliance post is more QQ than the DK blog wow.com linked to the other day...
Jun 26th 2009 3:21AM Kalrender, this is just not true. I remember several times while leveling my first character (before QuestHelper) that the Quest text pointed me "south-east" when in fact, I would be heading about half the zone east, and a tenth of the zone south.
Before questhelper, there were "let's ask my higher-level friends".
Jun 26th 2009 3:15AM "But it would be nice if the development team took on some of the serious issues and suggestions players have, and actually tried working towards bettering the class"
This is what Blizzard does on a daily basis. They don't have their development team reading the forums because of the great community.
Jun 26th 2009 3:12AM I take it you are the author of the DK blog in question.
If you looked at the other Q&As, you would have seen the lack of in-depth discussion coming, and furthermore, they did touch some upon the points you mentioned.
Also, QQ. Mages were told Blizzard would be changing Fire up to be a lot more pvp-viable in 3.1, and Frost would be a lot more pve-viable.
We didn't get this. In fact, we got a changed Improved Scorch, Replenishment for Frost and Mirror Images that didn't ruin our polymorphs. Compare that to the HUGE changes practically any class got for 3.1.
But I understand when blizzard have to make compromises, and these Q&As while maybe not very in-depth is still a nice dialog with the developers, and people like you who just QQ MORE when we get information is the reason why stuff like this is so rare.
I commend developers like Ghostcrawler for being able to put up with the incredible whine the community manage to spew out.
