Aug 27th 2010 9:46PM I'm going to have to disagree. It felt wrong to give warriors a handicap with armor penetration when the whole point of a warrior is the feeling of being able to power through everything with pure physical damage, to require us to use armor penetration to me made it feel like we weren't really doing it on our own anymore. I hate having the handicap. I want to go back to that kick ass feeling that I'm pounding and slicing away without having to have something extra special then my own strength then anything else.
Aug 27th 2010 5:36PM Personally playing a level 80 tank/fury warrior its going to be nice for my fury spec to not have to depend on armor pen and just slap in old regular strength gems (assuming) because I found it annoying that while I was able to damage more with armor pen I still felt like I was under achieving because I didn't have extra attack power that strength gives.
So to be honest I'm glad that warriors are going back to normal because this armor pen episode seemed over all useless and stupid to me.

Aug 22nd 2010 5:04PM That's what I'm screaming. I can't help but wonder what basement they found this guy in. Not trying to be insulting but this article just continues to look more like a pity party about a guy no longer being hot crap on a silver platter and instead being cold snot on a paper plate.

Your comments are exactly the kind of horse crap Blizzard works to avoid. they want all their players to be able to great things. They want equality. You sound like someone pissed in your drink because you're not the only one with such and such epic item anymore. Because other people have it, this is the kind of horse crap that causes schisms between players and does not promote group activity.
I'm sorry I'm not going to cater to the crowd where 40 people helped a person get one item that no one else has. I would rather have my equal and fair shot at getting the same loot other people can get. And I'm sorry, welfare epics or not, I grinded instances for quite some time to get ready to raid ICC and I put a lot of work into getting 232 and 245 gear to get ready for that content so to have you say that I barely had to lift a finger when I stared at the face of Halls of Reflection, Old Kingdom, Pit of Saron, Occulus, and Forge of Souls time and again to be able to get to where I needed to be.
Glad I don't play on -your- server. That kind of elitist attitude needs to be shoveled out of MMO's completely. There is no room for that crap. It is a game. It's supposed to be fun, people like you make it un-fun.
Aug 22nd 2010 2:47PM Addendum: Player built cities is a stupid idea and in my opinion having played Star Wars Galaxies only puts a divide between players as people create their own areas for their friends and themselves and don't let anyone else in. I prefer the pre fabricated creations as player built cities would make no real logical sense in WoW as it is.
Aug 22nd 2010 2:42PM After reading this drudgery of a whine fest I have several things to say.
1. Interaction is what you make of it. Not the game. It is stupid to accuse the game of now allowing interaction when the players themselves could get to know each other.
2. There is still guild camaraderie, I don't know about you but my guild still has fun playing together and all of us are friends and we get along quite well. There's this nice little invention called Vent that helps that. Being able to interface with people via voice chat helps you get to know them as well.
3. Forced PvP? Death penalty? Are you insane? Why would I play a game if I am going to go backwards? We already have to run back to our bodies and in certain areas of the game that is quite a difficult task as it is. If we wipe on a raid boss we already have to start from scratch, if we got negative experience or even lost levels while trying to do a boss fight we wouldn't be able to do it since you have to be level 80 to get into the raid. And I'm sorry, if you want forced PvP thats why they -have- PvP servers. If I wanted to have pvp constantly I would join...a PvP server but I don't, hence the option of normal servers where you don't have to flag yourself unless you want to. And technically if you think about it Wintergrasp is a form of forced PvP. Because of the buff you get when you win, if that buff wasn't so amazing, then people would just stop trying and let the dominant faction have it all the time. The horde tends to win a lot on my server but there are the occassions when Alliance ousts them and gets the buff for at least two hours.
I don't even know why they let you publish this article. Being a tabletop gamer myself I can tell you that your ideas would not work for a computer MMO. Though if you want more player interaction to the degree of role play you are talking about, you could always try a role play server or you can wait and play The Old Republic which is supposed to promote group story telling via player interaction and character choices.
Death Penalty? Seriously....no one would even play. This is a computer game, not table top RPG, its never really been that way. And to expect it to be in my opinion is asenine and immaturish.
Blizzard knows how to make money and how to keep their customers pleased, overall they are doing a fantastic job. For players like me that the most important thing about RPGs is their story love the experience and Cataclysm is going to have more of that. At any rate. I think I'll get off my soap box now.
Aug 22nd 2010 5:42AM I certainly hope you were being sarcastic when you called him the greatest Machina artist...because this video is a pile of crap. All he did was speed up the game, and flip is camera around and do random dancing.....it can't even be called art, its like someone urinated on a piece of paper and called it art. Its...stupid.
That being said....
This is funny. Extremely hilarious. I was laughing the entire time, and there are 8 of these before hand. I must now watch all eight of them.
Aug 22nd 2010 5:32AM I'm sure your wife loved the fact that you mentioned her nether regions. Grats on the baby.
Jul 28th 2010 6:36PM Why are you apologizing for a Twilight Joke. Twilight -sucks- and will always -suck-.
