News Comments > More WoW Hotfixes
9. Re: More WoW Hotfixes Feb 15, 2011, 18:56 Muscular Beaver
 
I tried playing yesterday again before my subscription runs out and I was greeted with crap everywhere again. Not only is the balance totally borked now in PvP (was horrible before, but now they nerfed and buffed the complete opposite of what they should have done), but also fire mages were supposed to get a DPS buff since they dont have lots of single target DPS. I tried that and after noticing that the afk bug STILL exists I noticed that I actually do 1-2k dps less now while an enchancement shaman with 17 less ilvl outdpsed me by 2k and a hunter with 20 less ilvl did also almost 2k more dps than me. Before that I could pull 11k no problem and that time I had to work extremely hard to even get to 9k.

Nope, my subscription will not be renewed. I hope they loose LOTS of players and their stocks drop dead because of this shit they are pulling right now.

Secondly I have seen "press start" on a PC game a total of never in my life with a controller not plugged in. Most people leave their controllers plugged in, which games auto-detect now-a-days, and then complain when the game shows controller graphics.

Not to sound like an ass, but when was the last time you played a PC game? 1995?
Right now I have a total of 10 games installed and 8 of them have this with no controller plugged in (sold that sorry excuse for an input device long ago).

They say "press start"? What games are they? I never see "press start" ever, I always see press enter or whatever, and we had that way before console ports.

Lol, youre right, most say "press enter" "press space" or "press enter or start", still some say "press start". Do you really wanna go there? I think you noticed already how stupid your comment was.

Oh well, that sucks, but it might also be a better choice since I doubt that the next one would be able to compare to the first one gameplay wise.

What I was thinking about is the typical gaming setup involving a single monitor costing under $1000 (just the cost of the monitor I'm talking about), where SLI seems to be more trouble and cost than it's worth.

You don't need a $1000 monitor to appreciate SLI. You just need to have high standards. I like getting 60+ FPS at 1920x1080, 8XAA and 16XAF. My monitor did not cost $1000.

The only downside to SLI/CF is that driver support can be iffy. Some games don't work with SLI or perform worse with it enabled. Other games don't have profiles available until a few weeks after launch.


Uh... Microstuttering?

It was super nice of Blizzard to finally make it so easy to quit WoW. With this last patch, I finally have no desire to play whatsoever. Thanks Blizzard!

Paper thin troll but it's surprising how many people I've been hearing that from recently.

Troll?
Well I guess I am one too then, because I also quit because of this fail of a patch. Reasons have been stated here already and in previous news about WoW.

People already criticized this in the first part. Yet there a disabled person has to complain about it before they change it...
Maybe we should use this more often. Like more PC games because there are no disabled-friendly input devices on consoles.
Or lets get a study started that console games actually decrease intelligence of people and real PC games increase it since they are much more complex.

Well, the second game was already a console shooter with autoaiming and simple and short gameplay, so the logical way would be to make the third part even worse. So far they are on track. GJ!

Seriously though, its a real shame what happened to this franchise. Perfect example what the console hype does to a very nice and memorable PC game.

Why should pirates complain? They have DRM-free software in any case.

Who said that pirates are reasonable?
More or less PvtPoopy said that pirates are quite often trolls too and I share that conclusion.

And yes, I also don't see anything wrong with that DA2 DRM - if it is just as explained.

Just because you say pirates arent reasonable, it doesnt make you or him reasonable.

Much better than the usual shit (the non Steam DRM).

Bravo for EA. No DRM at all would be just as effective and even much better for consumers, but hey, let's applaud this giant step in the right direction.

See, Ubi?. Do that, and we'll go back to buying your games (if they're good). Keep your shitty DRM and it'll keep being no money for you.

Wow, how peoples standards have declined in the past years... Just because it isnt as unbelievable as the Ubi one, its suddenly super duper!

Considering how much content, equipment, etc Blizzard keeps adding to WoW, would you rather they keep balancing things, or have things out of balance?

Right now they have an extremely unbalanced game and are only making it worse with these changes.
Also they dont add much content. Considering every expansion actually makes huge parts of the game useless, it doesnt add much at all.
Cataclysm was the shortest expansion ever. I was bored of it after 2 weeks, however I stayed a bit longer because of friends and I leveled another char to 85.

I guess you never played in vanilla. Because you couldn't compensate for players then either. Healing was hard, harder then it is now. But honestly it feels 'off', and that's the best way I can put it. Wrath sucked without question, but I will say that TBC had just about everything right.

Really if you didn't care, you wouldn't have posted what you did either. So there's some part of you that still does.
I did heal back then. Healing was only hard because there was no spellpower at first, which Blizzard corrected a little later. If you had a good equipped group, healing was easy back then too, hell we even had a healing/tank hybrid druid in the guild back then, who actually healed himself when running 5-mans, LOL. You should actually remember...

Nope, I dont care anymore. I only care about Blizzards stupidity and ignorance which I have a high interest in. I will still read all their patch notes because I want to know if they learn or not. Judging from the next patch notes, they dont at all.

world of queuecraft, where you pay us $15/month to sit in a queue for 40 minutes only to join a fail dungeon
Well you could always play a healer or a tank. But I guess that requires too much thinking then mashing 3 buttons. I don't think I've ever waited longer than 5mins on my healer, most of the time it's under a minute.

The queue problem lies directly at the feet of 'too many dps(cuz dps is ez), and not enough tanks and healers'

And then? I played a healer, it was hard with the new changes and crappy gear at first, but after the 2nd heroic I got the hang of it and was healing like a champ. I played healer before, only because I had lots of responsibility and could often compensate for other peoples mistakes. That time is over and as a healer you get blamed far more often than the DPS or tank, since people still dont grasp that healing isnt what it used to be. I was tired of it quickly, but I also got my full heroic gear (346+) FAR, FAR faster than in any expansion before, so the sense in doing heroics wasnt there anymore anyway.

Anyone who calls those heroics hard, needs to play BC heroics again. Cata heroics are a joke actually and become boring very, very quickly. The groups I was in the last few weeks almost all ran through them without CC, as if they were WotLK heroics with level 245 gear. And the tanks mostly only have around 340 ilvl.
Gotta love their class balance now too. They are even buffing already immensely overpowered classes and nerfing the weak or average ones with huge cuts to their abilities they had for years. Typical Blizzard stuff...
Oh well, I dont care anymore, Im done with it. Never stopped playing so quickly after an expansion before.

BG queues are not much better either. Especially rated BGs. I love spending 2 hours to get one together only to notice that the queue is as long.
Quit the game a few days ago since there is simply nothing to do anymore for people who dont raid.

The expansion of who gamers are means Farmville, in case anyone couldn't read between the lines there.

Making games is a business, not a sport, or something you do for fun. If you want to make money, you need to find the biggest audience. That means casual games. As a hardcore gamer, a game developer and a captalist pig, I have no problem with this.

There is the happy medium too. Not everyone who does a job in every industry is all about the greenbacks, including gaming. However, on this subject the economics is what we're discussing. Regardless of whatever the major publishers choose to do it behooves Microsoft to get off their asses and pimp the shit out of PC gaming if they want to continue making OS' and have people, you know, actually buy them. I find it laughable when people say the PC is on the way out. No, it's not. For a great many people, and I'd suspect that number is still growing it's their central hub in their home. They work on it, they play on it, it's their stereo, and in some cases TV and DVD player too. Piracy is such a non-issue that's laughable too. You can spin facts and figures all kinds of ways with it, when it really comes down to if you percieve it as tom-ayto or tuh-mato. We still see that good, or popular, games and franchises on the PC can sell through the roof, nevermind all the other apps that keep people employed which will never apply to a console. What's good for the PC is good for developers and publishers too.

It surely wasnt all about money a few years back. PC games were actually considered art. But what do you expect from stock-corporations that have a long history of killing/raping good developer teams? Killing PC gaming and thus devolving gaming to Nintendo 64-like gameplay is just another step. 2 birds with one stone actually. Their so called arch enemy, the pirates, will be killed, or so they think, and games need far less content, only simple gameplay and thus cost far less money.

Been playing since release and cant really say that the game was worth it.
It was really fun to level since the new zones and quests are very well made this time, but when you reach 85 and you got every reputation to the max and also have the best equipment you can get from heroics or justice points, then is kinda game over. I got to that point in 1 month with 2 chars. Now I am bored to death and only do some profession dailies and the daily random to get my valor points.

PvP is a joke too. Not only is the balance completely borked, but Blizzard also decided to nerf and buff the completely wrong classes and issues. They are making things far worse. Even though I have full PvP gear, I cant get myself to regularly PvP. Before Cata I was a PvP junkie, doing at least 10 BGs every day.
Oh well only 1 month left on my game time card anyway.

I just wish they would add more 5-man content and would release content patches every month. I simply cant get myself to raid because of the time and having to deal with idiocy and greed. Also because of resilience my reasons to raid have vanished pretty much. Why should I get better PvE gear? Just so I can hit NPCs better that are balanced around my gear? What if I get a good guild and in another month I have full raid equipment? What then? Whats the point? Boring and stupid.
