As opposed to spending more development time on this transmog restriction and hemming in each little piece of this idiocy even further?
I'm not paid for my non-constuctive opinions, fair enough. But the developer is ACTUALLY paid for his non-constuctive special snowflake development nonsense and should actually be shown the door.
And meanwhile actual game bugs go begging for attention.
Maybe you need to rethink what constructive development would actually look like instead of what we're getting now.
I shouldn't even justify this much dumb with a response but I figure I have the duty to try in at least one post.
So I'll start with a rhetorical question, what is even the point of remarks against blizzard? You're just flinging insults over vague, barely defined issues of which you're making no effort to identify or, by extension, report.
We can debate the merit of keeping this gear exclusive to those who earned it, but you seem rather intent to just call blizzard idiots. Not only does this immediately scream to the reader that you have no intent to have a civil conversation and therefor immediately undermine any weight your opinion might have but you also don't elaborate the reasoning behind this claim, so you're also wasting the readers time on top of looking like a tosser.
You just give the vague impression that it's because a certain small niche of players is given special treatment, which is worth debating but again you trivialize your position by being rude instead of intelligently and respectfully presenting it, and before you say you don't care about that I'd like to point out that nobody's going to treat you seriously if you don't.
Anyways, I believe the first reply to this post identifies the basic reason for this change, so this thread no longer serves any purpose.
