I'm also loving his series of Hunter Motivational Posters, but this week I feel he might have forgotten that not all of his readership are Male Dwarves, just most of them. As a result, I feel obliged to redress the balance.
There. All sorted now :D
|Yes, we KNOW. You've been playing since before they invented the Internets... ^^|
Believe it or not there are actually guilds and raiding groups that are attempting to progress through Normal and Heroic raids, but are hitting a wall, and have been hitting a wall. We have actually statistical data we base our changes on, we know exactly how many people are clearing these raids each week, we know exactly how many people are able to down just a few bosses, and how many were only able to down a few bosses every week for weeks on end and then stopped raiding altogether.
So, about this game taking a lightsaber to the knee... ^^
If they don't have to be like us, why do they have to have nerfs to get to our position in HM Raiding?Most of the time, it's not about Blizzard's attitude. People like to make it that way, because it helps them feel as if they're aggrieved when their class gets nerfed or a change happens they don't like. At the end of the day these guys have remained the #1 MMO on the planet for a reason: they listen to their player base, even when they're not talking. The amount of raw statistical data at the company's disposal must be huge by now, and it is abundantly apparent they are capable of acting on trends that appear within it. Raiding is in decline, so what does Blizzard to to change that? It makes it easier. Although I have a measure of empathy with the 'you should get better' argument, when it comes down to the wire, you play a game to enjoy it, and you come back to a game because it makes you happy. The developer reasoning is spot on.
Because they want to and they pay the same amount for the game? I don't know, man. How is it good for the game to have 1% of players parading around for months and months and a 99% sitting around with nothing to do because they're sick and tired of wiping?
Your solution is "Well then they should get better or quit." and that's just not reasonable for a video game comprised of millions of people looking to just have some fun. It's still a computer game.
|I know. Hear me out though... ^^|
|Yes, I know. I'm sorry ^^|
|Points, baby! All about the V's and the J's... ^^|
