MMO Champion =/= Blizzard

I am really tired of hearing people already complaining about "Patch Notes" when they are simply getting their information from MMO Champion.

"Spell Changes
These changes are mostly the results of tooltip comparisons, all the changes might not be there and I suggest that you wait for official notes before you whine or rejoice about something. " This is a direct quote from MMO Champion.

Z has said the patch notes should be up tonight. So just wait.

HOWEVER, B is usually pretty correct when posting these kinds of things, his comparisons are typically good.

Do you refer to everyone by the first letter of their name/alias?


Also, is it sad that I know the full aliases of the people you referred to?

The stages of patch note grief:

1. Denial : Blue rumor mentioned - Misquote the blue, state they don't understand the game, flame them wildly in disbelief at their statement.

2. Anger : Note on MMO-Champion - Rage about the more substantial rumor. Claim it will destroy the game and that people will leave in droves.

3. Bargaining : Patch notes posted - Post threads about it. Suggest other ways Blizzard might do the change instead. Offer to lose some spell/ability that you don't care about.

4. Depression : Patch gone live - Become sullen about the change. Insist on playing an alt for a few days. Contemplate dropping the class entirely.

5. Acceptance : Patch was fine - Return to playing the class. Discover that the change was a minor nerf and there was a substantial buff elsewhere. Adapt to it and continue.

MMO champion is correct on their material probably around 85% of the time. That's a statistic I made up based on what I have experienced. Though people should not take ANY patch notes as a guaranteed change until the content is live.

I'm not saying MMO Champion is an inaccurate site. I am just saying that even they said do not whine until actual Patch notes are posted. In the case of shaman they have had those notes posted and have the right to do so. The PTR can change at any time.

Step 6: Have MVPs flit around mocking everyone who doesn't suck up to Blizzard with them.


I laughed.

MMO Champion isn't blizzard. But they are an extremely reliable source of information. Are you honestly surprised some people follow what it says when are right probably 95% of the time?

MVPs don't mock. They point out the follies of humanity.

The only reason MMO champ has been wrong the great majority of times is because they report on news that Blizzard itself has not finalized. Things that are subject to change, like projected target release dates. Holding this sort of thing against them as if it damages their credibility is just stupid knee jerk internet cynicism. That's like if you worked at Blizzard personally on the next expansion and were told you have 3 months to design a feature, then when the third month comes around and they decide to give you another month you deduce this is your employer being wrong and deceiving you.
