Shifting Perspectives: Tanks, bribes, and player behavior, part 2 {WoW}

Apr 21st 2011 2:25AM i never did say removing VP limit for tanks. I said remove VP limit for anyone answering the CTA. Otherwise, it'll simply be a simply useless and redundant LFD replacement. I mean, the absence of tanks from the LFD queue is the main reason why people (mainly DPS) have huge queues for 5-mans, right? Do we want these queue times to shorten, right? the issue is for PVE people looking to complete 5-man heroics, right? I'd say that if these are the issues, you should make it MUCH MORE compelling for tanks to use the CTA.
I still have not seen any other better alternative than awarding anyone answering the CTA with 70 VP (on top of the VP awarded for the daily/weekly AND beyond the limit).
This way, tanks will be geared faster and queues will drop etc etc.

Shifting Perspectives: Tanks, bribes, and player behavior, part 2 {WoW}

Apr 20th 2011 11:53AM Tinwhisker - any better ideas? In my view, the lack of tanks is driven by actual tanks not willing to go through the pain of bieng told 'you cannot keep aggro' when they dps another target etc etc.

the CTA is aimed at people willing to go 5-mans - not raids. It would take me less than a months to get VP to get ONE t11 piece? how is that going to adversely affect raiders? or is just cause they'd feel less l33t cause normal guys like me could access their beloved thingies?

Removing the VP limit for CTA respondents will not kill balance, will not make make raiding a mess (most Tier pieces, esp the heroic ones drop only in raids....) while they'd allow for non-raiding guys like me to be able, if and when time/circumstances allow to set foot in raids without being completely blue. Moreover, I have gained a very good set of offspec gear for my holy offspec that i managed to be more useful for my guild also as a (much worse) healer. Lastly, it would sort the ISSUE here - which is not raiding (where there is not proper LFR) but 5-man content which caters - generally - to almost all of the PVE population.

Pls elaborate on your views - and pls provide alternatives. thanks

Apr 20th 2011 11:04AM As a 'non-raiding' tank, i have used a lot of LFD in the past. but i doubt i will be using it significantly more with the new CTA. mounts? flasks? I'd say Blizzy should be very pragmatical: tanks get some of the hardest time whenever they do 5-mans, hence i'd remove the VP limit to tanks doing the CTA and you'll see a huge amount of us non raiding tanks doing normals/heroics with their mains and lots of dps/healers levelling an alt to get these rewards.

remove the VP cap and, in my view, lots of 'casual' tanks will pop-up reducing significantly the queue times for dps.
