02/29/2012 03:35 PMPosted by Holypenguin. The sheer ACT of addressing PvP balance now would greatly invigorate the playerbase. But the fact that they have been ignoring PvP to such a degree only serves to step on the faith that the player's actually have in the company itself.
The real question of PvP:
When is Resto Shaman / Warlock / XXXXX going to be fixed?
Honestly, nothing else really needs to be said. Just go look at the ladders. RLS, MLS, Shadowplay dominating everything.
02/29/2012 02:22 PMPosted by NethaeraI'm not going to go point by point right now, but I do want to reassure you that we're not ignoring PvP. We're definitely aware of the concerns that players have and like much of the current development, are working on many things for the future of World of Warcraft (as a whole) and Mists of Pandaria. With the press tour coming up in March, we can hopefully be able to get you a better look at what we have planned and how we're planning to address things such as the PvP concerns that people have and have been expressing. I'm not going to promise that we'll "fix" everything that everyone has concerns about because that's not something we can ever guarantee, but we will be keeping a close eye on all of the (constructive) feedback that we expect you will have. We also look forward to when we'll be able to get community members into the beta test (when it occurs) to give it a first-hand look as well.

02/29/2012 03:59 PMPosted by Bundy1. Bundy/Reiscence, stop harassing. If you don't like what the OP said then get out plox. I don't mind that you disagree. It's just, at least to me, the OP makes sense. Classes are unbalanced and if blizzard wants pvp to be respectable in anyway (which they don't) it should at least almost be balanced. Sure there will be quirks but 3 guys hitting one healer in a BG and he keeps himself and his team up? That shouldn't be a thing >_> Just throwing my two cents in.
You're getting me wrong.
I'm not saying the op can't call for changes. That's cool. More power to do your good fight.
I'm not saying I disagree. I'm saying it's the nature of the beast.
Oh, and you're not the boss of me. This was an open forum the last time I checked.
02/29/2012 03:56 PMPosted by GunnyAll I got out of your post Neth, as clever as it was, was that we just have to suck it up until Mists comes out and hope to the WoW Gods that you're making the right decisions in fixing class balance in PvP. Not just for us Warriors, but for everyone's sake. :|
I got more of a "We know we're ignoring you so go ahead and take a 6 month WoW break. We'll be here if you come back after MoP fixes all."
They've laid off 600 employees to offset the coming subscription losses. Way to be proactive.
Honestly the answer of "We'll fix it in mop" is crap. The changes that need to be made to certain classes aren't huge quality of life issues at all. For one, the two most OP classes, at least in my opinion are frost mage and sub rogue. Neither one of those specs is super viable in pve, although I do know of people raiding sub on some boss fights. Small nerfs to both of those specs damage output would not break raiding or significantly affect pve. The same goes for weak classes in pvp. Is it really still necesarry for recklessness to cause a warrior to take increased damage. Simply removing that would make warriors a lot stronger in pvp, and not really affect raiders at all. It's not rocket science, its laziness on the developers part. And yes, this is directed at Greg Street.
