Nov 2nd 2011 7:25PM The ridiculous 2 minute wait between matches, or m ore importantly, the inability to back out between matches without completely shutting the game down and going to desktop/dashboard has already driven me away. Keep in mind of course that DICE is the same pack of idiots that up until bad company kept refusing to offer widescreen resolution on PC because it was "unfair."
Jan 5th 2011 9:38AM Or, best case scenario, the ratings become meaningless because everyone is downrating eachother.
I see it two ways. Either they allow the downrating, and what you described happens, or they just let you "like" or friend people, in which case some people will friend damn near everyone and everyone else will ignore it outright.
I'm ok with bliz trying out a little social networking but it should remain unattached to anything that actually affects gameplay.
Jan 5th 2011 9:31AM Heilig, my paladin is a tank and a DPS. I have heroic ready gear for both and I am capable at both. I am a somewhat better tank in my opinion but I've proven competent at both. Are you to insist that I queue as only as DPS if I want to quest as ret, even though I'd actually do groups a better service as a tank? I swear to god people who suggest this don't ever think it through beforehand.
I've got news for you. A lot of, if not most, "pure" tanks and healers, as you call them, do all their questing in a DPS or PvP spec, ESPECIALLY on pvp servers.
Jan 5th 2011 9:27AM The majority rules. If you don't like it, you can always get your own majority.
Jan 5th 2011 9:25AM Because it's a fantastic idea to punish someone for getting grouped with a hostile/abusive player, right? Please, I see this complaint every day and every day it's just as farcical.
Jan 5th 2011 9:17AM Such a shame, I hate arena and I was hoping to avoid it as much as possible. It's just so grindy. Queue, prep, fight for a couple minutes, repeat for an hour or two. Even if I'm winning and having exciting close matches, it still gets boring.
Jan 5th 2011 8:53AM Since you asked so nicely...
Dec 30th 2010 11:35AM No, not every rogue should have 3/3 precision. The best current data for assassination suggest 2/3 is superior in that spec. This is why people who pay attention to wowinsider wind up with screwed up toons.
Nov 15th 2010 4:16PM I actually look at this as good news. That means I can pick it up at the store, and be HOME in time to play it. If I lived on the west coast I would lose at bare minimum a half hour (more likely 1-2 hours) going through the rigmarole of picking it up and driving home.
