Look at Warfronts

Blizzard, you are making things worse for yourself!
This was discussed yesterday and has many threads about it already.

The hell time gating. You can EASILY farm your way to 320. This is NOT time gating. Please, time gating is already the popular word, at least ducking use it well ffs.

Have to agree, as much "timegating" as there is, this is not it.
The issue isnt the requirement, it is the fact that the Horde WERE NOT subject to it for the past few days at all. Is Blizzard going to take their gear from the fresh 120s that ran it nonstop since Sunday? Exactly.
i'm shaking my head at the thought of someone being so bad at this game, they think 320 is some out-of-reach number that will require weeks to achieve.

1. hit 120
2. run some dungeons while farming outdoor rares
3. grats, you now 320 and can start leeching warfronts

sweety, you have like 2 weeks to prepare. why are you complaining?
so they dont want fresh 120's to go from questing greens to purples
They actually reduced time-gating. By reducing the amount of commanders to upgrade your ship upgrade to 2... That saves you what two weeks to get your upgrade faster. You know how much item level you can earn in two weeks.

Thank you blizzard for taking away timegating. People really have no idea what this term means.
as far as time gating goes, this expac is way better that last expac.
quests that took a week to refresh.
gather quests that had an 8 week grind.
follower missions to unlock content, more than once, sometimes 4 in a chain.
having to do every stupid quest for pathfinder.

honestly, besides warfronts, what is timegated.

Yeah there’s lots of threads about lots of issues people have with BfA.

And there will be tomorrow

And the next day

And the next.
So, after Horde got to get all their fresh alts to 340+ in one or 2 days, its time to nerf it cause Alliance's turn is coming soon...

People are saying alliance complains too much... Can you really blame us considering how BfA has been so far?
Yea this isn’t time gating. it’s kind of a #!%*@%!% move to pull before alliance gets a crack at warfronts but it’s not huge deal.
340 gear is so common place that for most dedicated players, the only upgrades you’re really hoping for from a warfront is a Titanforged.

Ah, so it was conveniently implemented whilst almost nobody was in office.

I didn't see it anywhere so I started this thread.
Instead of maybe helping with a link you decided to TRY and make yourself look cool.

The term "time gating" is being misused so much, just like "P2W". Ignorant (and/or the self-entitled and instant-gratification) people need to learn what these terms mean before throwing it around at every single thing they don't like. Enough is enough already, give it a rest!
How is this an issue? LFR requires the same minimum item level and rewards the exact same level of gear.

The only thing this hotfix does is keep you from leveling an alt to 120 and going straight into Warfronts. It only takes an hour or two to reach 320 unless RNGesus has you on ignore.
