No, they aren't. That's just the easy answer.
Whether you agree or disagree with me it is blatantly obvious that kid Ningos was trolling.
If there were a premade-vs-premade queue for unrated battlegrounds, it would be 'a pain,' too.
Not if there was a LFG feature like PvE randoms & yes I would insist on more conquest points per win, for the reasons I have expressed many times. If it were the same conquest as randoms I wouldn't do them... not for the reasons people falsely claim (afraid of competition, which is nonsense) but rather better competition should always yield higher rewards (just like RBGs and arenas).
This is the most sensible comment I've yet to read on this topic. Good read Verandra. I agree completely with your assessment.
Some of what she said made sense, some of it didn't. She seems to be in the same boat as Clythia in regards to glossing over the real issue, which is bots & players that ignore objectives (effectively as useless as bots). Where is the outrage about these players?
Normally, I appreciate your sense of humour and viewpoint, but I have to agree with Cylthia, I'm not sure why this warranted another thread. Really, if it continues, it will be you and Cylthia arguing back and forth about the same points you have made previously.
To be honest I wanted to post in the thread created by the Blizzard employee I quoted, but it was locked (hit 26 pages in like a day).
Sad thing is he refuses to address this post. He will continue calling everyone trolls however.
I addresses the parts of your post that clearly illustrated you barely read what I had to say. Pretty hypocritical of you to accuse me of doing the same thing. Like I said above some of what you said made sense, but you lost me when you pretty much disregarded 2/3 of my points (that is why I said you were borderline trolling).
Im a little lost..
You shouldn't be, I was very clear in my opinions. Bottom line is I believe your idea of removing the gear grind would make BGs even worse than they are now (remove the incentive to win for most, resulting in mindless death matches). Blizzard has screwed the pooch a few times but I think they get it on this subject.
