"Guilds are generally brought together by a core and sometimes those circumstances change and that's how guilds break up." I'm assuming the guy isn't an idiot so to not admit, accept and apologise for mandatory 20-man raiding killing more old 10-man guilds than anything else is simply arrogant as hell. He needs firing, ASAP, imo.
Do you want bosses to keep healing themselves?
Yeah kind of a *!@#ty answer; "Because we'd rather you not play demonology" They pretty much forced locks to switch to demo at the start because destro and aff were lacking, not they are making you switch back because they don't like the spec...wtf blizz
Hey y'all, just to confirm, the patch name is, indeed, Fury of Hellfire. It's been in a couple of their official posts.
"6.1 was light on content". Understatement of the year. Apparently the twitter and selfie cameras integration were done by a developer over the weekend, and a dev/artist side-project.The whole Q&A was basically..Garrions, yeah, we messed up there.Professions, yeah, we messed up.Warlocks, demonology is good, so we are going to make as bad as the other two specs.Flying. Yeah, we took too long, made the wrong decision, messed up, reversed it.Dungeons. Oops, yeah, my bad.Dailies. Yeah, we went too far.Apexis, yeah, oops, too dull.Reps, yeah, our bad.Itemization, yeah, suck it.
Literally 0 questions about pvp, new bg or new arena. Do you all really care only about smelly garrisons and PvE?
My big problem with the whole interview was that Ion, while saying something to the whole WoW community did not look directly into the camera. He only glanced at it a few times.I felt like I was looking at a conversation between 2 friends and that I was only a participant that was ignored.Tip for Ion.When saying something to the WoW community please look into the camera.BTW Panser and Perculia always do exactly that and I feel like I am being talked to personally.
Minus a bump at the end of Vanilla to mid-BC (rented a room that had dial-up access only), I've been a loyal subscriber since Vanilla.With that said, WoW has always been fun. Plus the developers always listened to their fan base, even if it took a little while.I don't know what's going on anymore. My daily WoW play has turned into Garrison maintenance, it's become a job and not a fun game. And now all the stuff about no flying, which has turned into a massive achievement grind to gain the ability that we've paid for since BC once you hit max level. As a casual player, its going to take me months to grind out just the reputations. Plus they're new reps to boot, so as soon as 6.2 hits I'm basically starting over.I've been a loyal, casual player. WoW is not fun anymore. The development team is doing nothing to make it fun again. A handful of new pets? A few new mounts? Sorry, but I'm cancelling my subscription until the game decides to be fun again.
There is an ebb and flow, now it's your turn to be not the best game, World of Warcraft.
these interview represent where Blizzard is today.I found at leaste 100+ more interesting direct questions on Q&A thread BUT they pick up "soft enrage" questions to explain us abou last important thing in game: flying... recouloring tier sets... EDIT: have to add: no word about class balance, pvp balance... at least i won the bet about that. gj lemmings
How the hell can so many be this daft? Holinka was not there=no pvp Q&A
With regards to the lock comment, why not just balance all three specs instead of nerfing one into the ground to force players to play a particular spec?
The structure of the Garrison system was a complete failure on Blizzard's part. As Watcher pointed out, with everything tied in so well there, and everything so easy because of it, there's no reason to leave.The solution to this, strangely enough, is to have the entire system go backwards. Don't use Resources for building the Garrison - use the crafting mats: ore, stone, fur, leather, even lumber be what we need to improve our base. That makes us have to go out into the world in order to progress. We could get a bit of that from our own mine, true, but going out into the world would actually speed the process along rather than be a waste of time.The Resources, then, would be for something else. They're supposed to represent the resources you, as a commander, have to draw upon - things that you're supposed to spend wisely because they're the currency we need to to send our followers off on missions... or they could be used to go on missions ourselves.The solution for world immersion through the Garrison isn't the Apexis Daily (which he admitted was a failure on their part), it's through the Daily Quest Hub that we built in each zone as we leveled up - our Garrison Outposts! Why make them if we don't use them? Resources could've been the fuel we as players used to power those remote outposts - to turn those Daily Quests on - both for ourselves and for our followers.Power up an Outpost with Resources from our Garrison and Dailies and Follower Quests appear for that area, giving rewards/rep you couldn't get any other way. For the player that would activate a more dynamically unfolding Golden Lotus style Daily experience that gets us out into the world, collecting mats, and working the zones all over again, this time at max level while chasing after rewards that would actually make a difference in that zone - by helping to grow that Outpost and make it stronger.Rather than as a currency for lame gear rewards, make the Apexis Crystals more rare - a small cache of them gained at the end of each Outpost Daily experience - but make them actually useful for something. Have them be the rare Resources we need to send our Followers on Raid Missions, have them be an additional price we pay if we want Follower Missions completed faster, Work Orders done quicker, to unlock Flying or buy bonus Rolls for Loot. Things like that that break the normal flow of things but that's what the Apexis Crystals are - they're our rocket fuel that will burn out super quickly if you misuse it, but very valuable to have because you have to work for it.It's really too late to implement this for WoD, which is a shame, but I really hope Blizzard learns some hard lessons from this xpac, because what I just pulled out of my rear end is a game I sure as heck would've enjoyed playing.
For all Blizzard's flaws as a company, I respect that they can admit when they've screwed up.Also, I feel someone on the writing staff really likes the word 'fury'... It seems to crop up a lot.
