Jul 24th 2009 11:25PM "...blatantly rips off from the awesome Cataclysm armor sets..."
and even with that somehow horde 'won' in the Class category
in my opinion if i wanted a set that looks like the Cataclysm armor, id go farm some t5 tokens, horde should LOSE points for re-using a theme from such an amazing set, total and complete lack of imagination...
blizz devs creation process: "spikes, check... deformed horde symbol, check... what else to do, what else to do... eureka!!! lets rip off the one original part of the tier5 set and come up with TWO sets instead of one, check"
Apr 6th 2009 12:55AM firstly "...25-mans are harder, and thus 25-man raiders "deserve" better gear. In my experience, this is absolutely false; the bits of 25-man Naxx that I've done I could practically have slept through, and 10-man Sarth with 3 drakes is generally accepted as the toughest fight in the game right now..."
is quite obviously not a valid argument because youre comparing apples to oranges, Sarth 3D is the hardest fight, but you cant compare that to Naxx25, only to Sarth easy mode...
secondly, i dont think that awarding same quality gear in both 10 and 25 modes is a good idea, the way i see it 98% of the people wont set their foot in a 25man raid if they can get the same gear in a 10man... because you gotta remember, while yes raiding is fun, for most people the ultimate reason for raiding is not the fun of it, but getting better gear, thats the motivational force behind raiding. and raiding in 10man mode means you have 2.5x less people to roll against, meaning that gear will be obtained quicker, why even bother with 25man then?
everybody whos done many 25s knows how annoying it can be with people going afk, disconnecting, lagging etc...
no, if there was not a specific incentive to do 25man raids, nobody would ever bother with them, except for a tiny community of masochists.
