I can try to sum it what i think his main point was with an example.

Look at my armory - I have a Mythic 5 titanforged 385 trinket.

How dumb is it that a mythic 5 dungeon gave an upgrade the same level of a mythic raid kill? I didn’t do anything special other than hit the jackpot when i pulled the lever on the slot machine.

Stop the casino/RNG game and have the game reward progress.

Total agree and spot-on analogy.
If I wanna gamble. I know where to find Las Vegas.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIKE ASMON TO AGREE WITH THE VIDEO
The people who already agree with him are the ones who are going to agree with him. And vice versa. The only thing that changes is Asmon's view count.

I got a 395 trinket on my alt hunter that I haven't even done a mythic+ with yet. I have 370 azerite amor on my warlock and I haven't done a single mythic+ with him either. I have 340 azerite armor on my blood DK and I've run about 20 mythic+ dungeons, for weeks. I've done it and just unsubbed. I can't take it anymore. Fuk Activision and fuk blizzard. You devs can all go to hell for all I care. These devs could never create anything, they just ride the coat tales of the original devs and enjoy a decent quality of life because of it. Trust fund devs to the fullest.

Just because you like the game doesn't mean everyone else is wrong,

Just because you can't take any meanie humor doesn't mean he's a horrible human being.
But both of those things are good reasons not to watch the video.

At the end of the day, it is simply one player's opinion. Being a Twitch or Youtube personality does not make you any more right or wrong than other players. If yoyu agree with him, alright. That doesn't really mean much.


At the end of the day, it's the opinion of all the players that unsubbed, which is at least 3 million since the start.

...

What the fuk do you think 80,000 useless forum posts are? Delete your account and go away, I see you everywhere on these forums and 99% of the time you say nothing.
You are you? Blizzard employee? No. Not your decision.


You're a blizzard employee though
If this Streamer made an App that hid his name from the forums - I would be a big fan.

I go all week without even thinking about him. But Sunday comes along, and his sycophants start with the spam.
Blizzard's too busy counting your subscription fees to even bother thinking that they are doing a mediocre jov
Asmongold has a lot of opinions and not a lot of hair.

It’s spot on, I hope the devs actually start looking at the problem he addressed. Just put your hate to that guy aside and watch it.

Edit: The video’s name is the current state of battle for azeroth by asmongold and here is the link https://youtu.be/11M9CCNGNNw
Dfat, what happened? You were so excited about BfA and even into the expansion your only criticism was that you thought the storyline was weak. Then you disappear from the forums for a month and when you come back, you hate everything about the game.


You must live on an other planet.

I don't really care for Asmongold, but his video was spot on.


That's how I felt too, he hit all the major points.

We are just rats in a Skinner box.
I don't care either way about the guy but..wasn't this all info we already knew and commented on many times right here in this forum?
I wanted to play WOD and MOP more than I want to play BFA. I just don't understand what Blizz is thinking right now. Why are they doing the opposite of what their fan base, who are the people who pay their salaries, want. Honestly, this makes me sad because this is my favorite game ever and I hate seeing it suffer. I hope classic is good, but at this point, I feel Blizz is going to find to way to screw it up
Never forget the nonsense that was Relinquished Trinkets.

Relinquished Trinkets particularly in Antorus showed the intention behind these systems. Convergence of Fates and Arcanocrystal, both BiS trinkets, both with the best method of acquisition coming from a gambling system. I spent so many hours trying to farm an Arcanocrystal, and it was even worse for Fury warriors where CoF was so far ahead on BiS.

They had a chance to kill CoF and Arcano, but they left arcano unchanged and changed CoF so it scaled better with TF but was a bit weaker base.

This is all about taking as much time from you as possible.

I also reported the other asmongold threads being currently spammed too.


I remember you, aren't you the guy that keep appearing in Asmon's video?

Ah found one of them, he got like 3 videos about you alone

You're famous lol

Who tf is telling anyone what to believe? Its literally a video stating an opinion and its well made, if you don't care then don't comment here? Seems easy.
I din't say I didn't care. I do care that people think streamers have more value than the average player.

I'm watching it now, and that's only an example of a larger point hes trying to make, that with the over-abundance of RNG Blizz has willingly traded fulfillment for short term excitement. That's where the casino analogy he made came from. Short term excitement is just that: short term and therefore not sustainable. Which causes player burnout: Not from min/maxing at all, but from becoming immune to consistent bouts of short excitement, in any content, will make you jaded towards future spurts of short excitement. And players will become bored and lose interest.

And he's correct. It's exactly this:

"Habituation is a psychological learning process wherein there is a decrease in response to a stimulus after being repeatedly exposed to it."

You should actively listen, and not let your prejudices show so easily... if you must have them.

Also, this poster I quoted is why people should independently investigate things for themselves, instead of being foolish enough to rely on "Cliff Notes" from other unknown people, like I said earlier in this thread.

Hilariously, all these people telling me to watch the video aren't even willing to link to said video.

It's clearly on his youtube channel you moron.
