Yes, people certainly enjoyed the game more when one of the main parts of the game was less accessible for varying reasons, what a great argument. "People loved the game when they didn't get to play most of it!" They didn't bring this upon themselves by making things more accessible. What a looney argument. If YOU like hard content, then do mythic raiding, if you want hard content but don't want to do the content that is available, then you're just whining about nothing essentially. "I miss the game when it was harder and when raiding was a low percentage" "There's mythic difficulty of raiding where a low percentage of the playerbase is at" "Well I don't wanna do mythic raiding!" This is an argument I've seen many times on the forums, people complaining about difficulty or lack of content and when given options they just go "Well I don't wanna!" Complaining just to complain, dealt with too many customers in my job who like that.
Wait so your entire argument against my intelligence is that I didn't use the quote button? Lel, I just chose not to, there's this thing called "choices". Giving classes an iconic weapon for their class ruined the game for you? When you think important paladin weapons one of the first weapons you think of, is Ashbringer. Making a version of ashbringer that all paladins can have doesn't lessen the value of the first one, first one still has a unique model, anyone with first one can equip it and everyone would be able to tell that they earned it. Just like the battle tank mount from archaeology doesn't lessen the awesomeness of the black battle tank mount. Unearned? What exactly makes it so someone "earned" the right to raid? Time spent? If you want to feel like you're part of some elite group and everyone else being able to raid easier difficulties with lower level rewards is ruining that for you, that's a personal issue. If you spent time to get to the top raiding tiers then you should feel accomplished, you shouldn't feel the need to dislike the fact people experienced similar content at a lower difficulty than you are currently at. If you aren't on the higher raiding difficulties and are still holding this weird elitist attitude then you're just complaining to complain and that's another personal issue.
The dude who thinks leveling and gearing a new monk would be easier than just getting a second !@#$ing set of 340 azerite gear, something you can do in an hour tops, is a true galaxy brain thinkerI could never be as nice as Lore is to people like that
Hello Everyone, I wanted to say first of all that I don't believe I totally understand the monks idea about rerolling just for an extra chance with the azurite armor although I would never do this myself. I want to point out that yes the argument is very valid about farming 340 gear. But as someone that has 370 head, 385 shoulders, and 355 chest this isn't really an option for me in particular. If I could suggest that maybe a fix to the azurite problem could be the availability to change the talents for the head for every spec. that was as a feral main im not having to wear all dps traits for when im tanking.
WTF is up with these articles that keep getting posted without anything in them?
Also, geez, way to really disproportionately overreact to a guy who's trying to respond to feedback like a real human. People here in this thread calling for Lore to lose his employment because he seems the slightest bit annoyed at the fever-pitch whining over a single feature in a massive, giant video game. Seriously, what's wrong with you? You'd think this place (or the GD forums) was one of the Salem witch trials every single time a Blizzard employee tried to clear something up. They're not kidnapping your family and pouring sugar in your gas tank, they're trying to make a fun video game for you to play in your spare time.Systems are going to be broken sometimes. That's what happens with any complex system, especially in something as giant and long-running as World of Warcraft. The developers at Blizzard are not some immaculate game-creating gods who never make errors or suboptimal decisions. This isn't a cabal of mischievous gremlins sitting in a smoke-filled room actively trying to come up with ways to ruin your day. Sometimes, things just don't go right. And historically, Blizzard usually learns from their mistakes. It's one effing month into the expansion and you guys act like it's a life sentence.I also mentioned this elsewhere, but geez, isn't it kind of a guaranteed failure if you are hanging your character's entire existence on the feature that you have the absolute least control over? Just get your Azerite gear, regard the traits as a bonus, pick the one you want, and move on. Focus on the stuff you CAN control to some degree, instead of bleeding over the thing you absolutely can't. Make some sort of effort to roll with the punches and switch gears as the situation demands. How do some people function in real-world situations where there are huge variables in play, when they can't cope with the idea of playing around a random system in a video game?
I feel like a lot of people are missing the meaning on the monk's quote. They're talking about rolling a 2nd monk to get additional azerite pieces over 340, because they're at a 370 ilvl but can only get 340 ilvls to drop, so a 2nd monk would double their chances of getting additional over-340 azerite gear.
Best get busy farming those off spec pieces on your main.
I don't understand this complaints. Farming different gear for offspec was always a thing in WoW, for all 14 years. Now it's easier than ever. People are really that spoiled?
Honestly can't say it doesn't serve him right. People have been offering constructive criticism and suggestions for entire pages and he has been ignoring everything that doesn't have a personal attack or a double meaning (which were very few in between and overly increasing the more and more he ignored the criticism). Also hilarious he mentions that the playerbase has been "rude" when there are clear signs of passive aggressiveness in some of his responses.We've been told to "Wait and see..." since beta, but this doesn't work for a recurring subscription model that drains you money monthly. The playerbase cannot afford to "Wait and see" or "deal with it" and are expressing passionately their discontempt with the game experience, hoping that one day, ONE DAY, their criticism will make the game better. Telling them to "wait and see", "deal with it" or "I have no idea what you're talking about hehe" is just adding fuel to the fire and I seriously hope it's someone from Blizzard that does get burned, not the playerbase.
