OK, let me start on the bright side…
There was a video ^^ there if it is blocked by the blog nazis… worth a look… trust me!
OK, so down to business…
Like he said, but different
But.. I think that the New LFG is NGE!
OK, let’s look on the bright side of LFG…
- Get groups quick – Check
- Get emblems quick – Check
- Luck out with instances and OP people you normally wouldn’t play with – Check
- Get achievements you know your friends would be envious of – Check
Mmmm doesn’t sound that bad does it?
But what if you want to do something different… you know, like not chase emblems… like… ummm… play the game?
But what more is there?
PvP… Raiding… scratching your butt.
I’m going to leave the 3rd option to you, but the 1st two are a real problem for me.
Well good on you… you don’t mind if I queue for a VoA, Naxx or Ulduar do you?
No I thought not.
Ever watched a 5 day cricket test?
Blizzard does… well I guess technically they don’t, but if I want to queue for a raid that may not start for 3 or 4 weeks, I can’t do anything else… hell I might as well watch Cricket!
Maybe I can get a quick random instance in while I wait…
You mean I can’t do anything while waiting to do something?
I guess I will just have to do laps of Dalaran… maybe show off my patchwork T7 gear…
I’m at the point right now where I do randoms until Wintergrasp pops.. do that then join the random queue..
It’s all about the gear folks!
I don’t know what else it could be about…
- Random Instances = Too much PvE gear too soon
- Wintergrasp = PvP gear for keyboard turners.
But, if you have this desire to do a bit of this AND a bit of that… well you have to choose and god forbid you make the wrong choice and remain in the queue until the weekly server restart!
It’s not who I am!
- I like Instances…
- I like raids…
- I love Battlegrounds…
I love to mix and match those in a night, but now, I feel like I need to make a choice and stick with it… but that just isn’t who I am.
I defend my right to be bad at all parts of this game all the time!
No Cross Dressing allowed!
There is one last thing that cheeses me off about the latest patch, not the cross dressing that I want in the game (and will discuss in coming days), but rather the fact that Blizzard has now decided that I have to wear MAIL!
Do I look like a postman?
Some boots dropped when we were running an instance the other day.. the were an upgrade in EVERY way, except for armor, because they were cloth, and we all know
No self respecting Resto Shaman would wear cloth!
Except well.. I like the feel of cloth against my skin…
There were no clothies in the party (even if there were, they would most likely have out geared this drop), there were no disenchanters, but all I could do was greed the item.. and I lost!
Just trade it short stuff!
Well, I would, if I could… but that would be like x-transfer and we can’t have that!
I was in ToC the other night. A pair of boots dropped and someone desperately wanted them… unfortunately I won them and I couldn’t trade them…
To make things worse, this same player then won something I wanted… but he couldn’t trade it to me!
Seriously Blizzard.. this just sucks!
Make it tradable until the group disbands… please…
There are good things in this patch though!
One thing that has always cheesed me off, is being a healer in Culling of Stratholme.
- I can handle the tank getting way ahead.
- I don’t mind laughing at the DPS that pulled aggro, that I don’t have time to Rez.
- I do hate the zombies chowing down on my calamari face while I try to heal… and the DPS are more concerned about squeezing out one more cast rather than saving me.
Fire Nova Totem Rocks!
The change they have made to make this castable on any fire totem just rocks!
I am clearing the zombies while the team works on the important mobs…
Hell, I basically 3 manned CoS last night, in part because I was able to clear the annoying buggers myself without missing a beat.
Let me play my game
Anyway, I need to finish up.. it’s 1am in the morning, hopefully by the time you are reading this I will have taken possession of my 1st home.
Whatever happens tomorrow (err today), I just hope one of the Blizzard developers reads this and realizes that they are isolating players by limiting their choices.
Sure if someone joins up for a random instance, prevent them from doing other stuff… but not the other way around!
Gnomer and Out, Squidly and Stoush!
