How to deflect blame to other people over stuff you have no clue about 101.Honestly, Talesin's accusations against other YouTubers made me believe that he's the cynical one that he so justly tries to blame. It is a pretty big assumption to believe everyone that loves classic would throw shade at Blizzard's scummy corporate practices by making the live game more vanilla like as there is a difference between releasing a quest or two you can complete every week in 5minutes as "new content" to pad the game versus making the game itself more compelling. It's the artificial gating people hate, not the organic kind he mentioned.
Shrug, when Bliz made leveling "harder" the forums freaked out. (The leveling experience got better, yet people complained non-stop). So yeah, I think Talesin is right - applying classic level danger to current WoW is a not-gonna-happen.
So, Willblade, Defender of Accused YouTubers, Speaker of Misunderstood Gamers, ain't I glad you came here and clarified everything for me!Else I might have enjoyed watching the show just like I used to, silly me...oh wait...I probably will go ahead and do just that, maybe even more so after taking part of your insights... /s/popcornBest moment of the week!
Is this Classic vs. Retail nonsense ever going to stop now? It seems like a genie is out of the bottle and it's just rampaging everywhere. It's really depressing. I played Vanilla (a lot) and I'm happy to leave most of it in the past. Is Retail perfect? No. Blizzard needs to massively rethink design, pretty much across the board but I'm worried they will take the wrong lessons from Vanilla.
The thing is, they didn't make levelling harder, they made it slower. There is a difference, the leveling slowdown didn't increase the damage that mobs dealt, you could still do mega pulls and kill everything without any danger of dying, not to mention that levelling from 1-120 is very different than 1-60, as in it's double the levels and with each level you gain absolutely nothing, whereas before you had talent points to spend. It's only natural that if they make the levelling experience slower but not actually harder (aka make mobs hit hard and elites/rares nearly impossible to solo), there would be backlash over the experience being boring.
Wonder how much the delay in 8.2 is down to FFXIV next expansion coming out on the 2nd of July? ( or earlier if you pre-order and get early access)
Reminder to keep your discussions on topic and respectful!
I love these two!They bring out the most important facts well and witty.
Taliesen:NO NO NO. Don't make mobs harder to kill. Don't make the game more like Classic. Allow WoW retail to be nice and accessible for us casuals, while you hardcore people can all go and play Classic.Great show as always, but you said 'Tiny brain' just a little too much :)Cheers.
