As divisive as the community is about GC (I like him, some people don't), if you played before Wrath of the Lich King, you'll remember a time when the community stood united against the Wrath...of the Kalgan and his legendary Nerf-bat. I post this not to incite more QQ amongst the GC haters (but it probably will, tbh), but as a reminder that as far as the game has gone in its tenure, some things change, some things don't, but we all deserve a laugh at how things turn out.
Once upon a midnight dreary, while I logged on, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of Warcraft lore,
While I grinded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my class' door.
"'Tis the nerf bat," I muttered, tapping at my class' door —
Twas Kalgan laughing, "QQ more"
This crazy dev was beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,
"Thy nerfs be hard and reckless, thou art no game making genius,
Cease nerfing classes and turn this game into a chore -
Working so hard just to be weak is such a bore!"
Quoth the Kalgan, "QQ more."
I posted on the forums, for this dev loves to see 'em,
Though he answers with little meaning — little relevancy bore;
For we cannot help agreeing that no sublunary being
Would call it a buff when it's worse than before —
Those stats are wrong down to the very core,
But Kalgan just said "QQ more."
Wondering at the stillness broken by blue post so rarely spoken,
"Doubtless," said I, "what it utters is its only stock and store"
Making podcasts for the masses who feast on empty promises
"Wait for next patch" — with that Hope he would adjure,
Stern Despair returned, instead of the sweet Hope he dared adjure
No buffs, just nerfs - QQ more
Now the Kalgan, sitting lonely on the dev chair, spoke only
That one phrase, as if his soul in that one word he did outpour.
Us players, still undaunted, on this forum board exhasuted —
Our hearts, worried and haunted — tell us truly, I implore —
Is there hope in expansion? — tell us — tell us, I implore!"
That sad answer, "QQ more!"
