07/08/2011 07:36 AMPosted by AngelatoreYou honestly believe that someone had to raid Wrath to call it easy? Are you really going with that stance?
I believe you actually have to try something out before you're qualified to make any kind of judgement, yes. Even Roger Ebert has to sit through at least some portion of awful movies before he can justifiably write any kind of review.
I'll repeat: In order to judge something, you have to have tried it first-hand.
I can do plenty of investigation on MMO champion, watch livestreams, etc. to get a feel for whether an instance is easy and facerollable or truly challening like Sunwell was. Based on my own raiding experiences and what I expect out of content I can judge whether it's worth my time to continue to raid.
That qualifies whether it's worth your own time. You still can't make any real assessment of how hard it is unless you try it, as any evidence you have is hear-say. Now you can point out said reviews to others, you can show me how hard a time Paragon has on a boss, and tell me what they said, but you yourself can't make any judgement. All in all, if I want to know what others say, I'll let them talk for themselves.
Based on what I am used to and what I expect, I can wholeheartedly argue and be confident that the current content isn't even a sliver of what it used to be and is in no way, shape, or form worth my time.
Without first-hand knowledge of the fights, your opinion is meaningless, sorry. Any of the people in this forum who've actually done the fights, those people's opinion is actually worth weight.
If you are happy with the accessible content and what Blizzard is doing that is perfectly fine and I fully support you opinion. But what you expect out of the game is different than what I expect. I, and many others, were not happy and have stepped away from raiding because it's made for more casual players with accessibility as the goal of creating instances. That's not fore me.
That's fine if you don't expect raiding to fulfill you. If you've done your homework and have decided it's not worth your time, that's reasonable.
However, you still can't make an accurate judgement on how hard content is without first-hand experience, at best you can make an educated guess on whether it's worth your own time.
I agree it's semantics to call something recycled purely over the boss's name.07/08/2011 07:36 AMPosted by AngelatoreSemantics.
