Jan 12th 2011 6:59PM maybe mechanics of heroics aren't hard, but the probability of getting 5 randoms to pay attention is kinda low. so a typical night goes :
45 minute wait
Wait for queue to refill
Wait for queue to refill (or if it doesn't, leave and start a new 45 minute queue)
if you're lucky by this time maybe you have 5 people that can pay attention, if not, go back to start
If you happen to win and get 70 valor or whatever, you only have to go through this process 142 more times to buy some upgrades. Frustrating on so many levels for a game that's supposed to be fun/escape/recreation....
Jan 12th 2011 6:22PM I'm a casual, work a full time job 10 hours/day, so when I get on for the 2 or so hours per night, I don't have time to wait 45 minutes in a random heroic queue and hope the other 4 people also know what they're doing. If they don't, I'm pretty much screwed cause it's back into another 45 minute queue. Then I have to repeat this daily collecting 1000 valor points to buy 1 piece of armor? No thanks.
Needless to say, I've let my account run out, my $14.95/month is just as much as the hardcores $14.95, who are saying there are no problems with Cataclysm.
