There really isn't a better youtube channel for handing so much of the vocal community the "guys, grow up, let's just have fun" that they really need right now. I love T+E for being the light in a place artificially darkened by herd mentality at this time in WoW's history!
Same here, love their videos about the game!
The herd that you decry you are also a part of, just a different herd with all of their blinders on.
Yes because criticism and facts are overrated. "OMG guyz, can't we just be besties? Blizzard has been targeted and harassed by these awful gamers who simply voice their opinions because free speech and also videogame companies are the most oppressed group on the internet, targeted by racists and mysoginists. Truly society has sunken to a new low, grow up! #respectBlizzard" -also in herd mentality
People who think that you aren't allowed to be negative about the game you love are the cancer of our community. Yes, we love the game, but that doesn't mean we have to be positive about everything, especially things that are wrong. Some people are so sick of the legitimate negative feedback about the game's condition atm, that they're willing to just blind themselves to it all and say that everything's fine, and that it's the "complainers" who are the problem. That is a sad and dangerous stance to take, and this youtube channel epitomizes it, being constant apologists to anything Blizzard does, and mocking those that are pointing out legitimate issues with the game.
Why does everyone ignore the fact that T&E criticize the game? Even this video has a whole segment about how much T hates shop mounts. They're just very positive people. They tend to see the good in everything. That doesn't mean they ignore the bad, they just don't focus on it. Considering how many WoW Youtubers zone in on the bad and seem incapable of thinking of anything else, they're the refreshing balance we need.
It's reasonable because you make a compromise actually because you like the game.You wouldn't compromise if it was a restaurant and the waiter brought you uncooked meals. It's like you order potatoes, rice and meat and the meat is simply not cooked. What do you do? Avoid the meat, eat the potatoes and rice and at the end you say: ,,Oh, it was a good meal, i just ignore the problems, will come back again, what a wonderful chef!''. See?You should keep decent standards because you should respect yourself enough as a customer.
Eugh, where to start. First of all, thanks to T&E for making me laugh this morning. Second, thanks as well for being able to take a step back and spend those 5 seconds of research to think about plausibility. Another 5 seconds would also show that global equity prices look very similar to the chart of Activision Blizzard's stock price. The company's is worse than the market, but not as bad as it seems at first.There are some reasonable complaints to be made about the current state of wow. Speaking as a long-suffering elemental shaman, class balance is one. But I do see too many complaints about dumbing down for casuals, or even welfare epics. The subs from the top guilds, even for argument' s sake all the cutting edge ones, do not pay for the game development. It needs the millions of other subscribers that never set foot into mythic to pay for that. Be happy Blizzard is finding ways to monetise mounts to keep enough funds for continued game development. There are plenty of other enjoyable targets in the game The hivemind is fantastic. I already miss Hippo watch. Obviously there needs to be an achievement in the game for something harder that gladiator, perhaps win a PvP arena match with me in your team.It's great to have a voice of reason among all the dark mutterings of you tubers. And T&E have plenty of criticisms, too.What would be my view of the game- well I admit over the past few weeks to having lethargy, which is unusual mid expansion. I thought the world and initial story for BFA were fantastic, I really enjoyed levelling. World quests became a bore, and a nightmare as elemental. Azerite gear is massively frustrating, even more so I find than the horrendous RNG for leggo drops in legion. Hopefully 8.2 may fix that.
It highly depends on what part of the game you enjoy.I enjoy casual hc pugs and story and the lore and races, but an important part for me is to be able to stand toe to toe with other players in solo pvp in warmode.When everyone is whining about azerite armor while most casters are free kills in owpvp by melee players with even half a brain, I can to enjoy the game.It is their choice to simplify the game so much this happened and only push for 3v3 arena ‘balance’, but I won’t be supporting something that clearly doesn’t care about the part of the game I enjoy even though I like parts of the game and the aesthetic.
I wouldn't have so much to say against them if T&E were actually good players and actually knew wtf they're doing. But they're not. -shrug-
But I'm not a very good player either, so I can relate to T&E, and they are entertaining, which most of the others aren't, to be honest. -shrug-
