we need to feel powerful, easy as that. the community can not hope to be cured in the "FUTURE". it has to happen now.
Nice summary, Fitz. As you have stated, negativity has become a distraction more than helping. I am with you in making sure we are constructive when providing our criticism on skills and abilities.
All these changes are temporally correlated with the outcry from monk community that monks are indeed in a bad place.

Although we can't establish a causal relationship between community outcry and monk buff, but it is quite obvious that blizzards' attitude towards monk class changed after so many players bashed them for doing nothing.

Remember back in 2.0.3, they said monks were in a good place, and that was pretty much the ignition of all the negativity in the community.
If Blizzard wasn't so slow to react, we wouldn't have lost so many contributing members. This place would have been as great as it once was.
You'll never control trolls.

I would just like the community to focus on monk-specific issues, not "problems" like, "relying on unity" (something all classes use really,) etc.

And a larger percentage of monk specific items like fist weapons to have legendary effects.

It looks like someone other than don vu is tasked on monks now, (I hope?) so we're seeing a bit of progress.

They should realize that if anywhere though, this extended PTR is a good place to have some fun, overbuff, and tune down from there instead of tiny incremental buffs. As it looks, both Monk and Crusader need work in terms of GRs, though they are slowly closing the gap on monk vs crusaders.

i dont think so
I posted the thread below some time back. Honestly, with better communication the forums would be a much better place. Without real communication, everything festers and boils until it overflows in the form of negative community posts. Isn't it interesting how different the monk forum posts have gotten with just a glimmer of hope and moderate communication?

What would the forum posts be like if, at the start of the PTR, Bliz had stated something like 'We've heard your feedback on the monks and agree that a lot of work is needed. Please give us 3-5 months and multiple PTR iterations to iron things out. In the meantime, we'll try to provide you some updates on our philosophy and how we are going to attempt to adopt some of your great feedback.'

This community has only one tool left, that's vitriol. See, most of us aren't Blizzard Appologists. Blizzards handling of people who paid $100 USD to play monks, is shameful.

Any place else, a person does a job that poorly, they are fired.

Somehow, the people responsible for Monk skills and items, kept a job. That's inconceivable.

Total and epic fail on Blizzard. I still hope people get fired over it.
One of the reasons why I want monks to get stronger in general is that it will silence some of the dumb QQers in this forum.

Of course, it's naive to expect the internet trolls to completely go away. It's impossible.

But then, I'm sure a little less number of trolls would make things much more fun to talk about builds and shi t in this forum like the old days.

Yes, agreed and have refrained from negative posts for the most part and still have fun playing my fire monk maxed @ T3 because I like the build, but, bottom line, better communication would solve a lot of the negativity across all forums.
