The Real Reason for the pvp power/resil nerf

Arenas
/tinfoil hat
The double nerf to pvp power, and the nerf to resilience wasn't an attempt by Blizzard to make PVP gear better than PVE gear.

The real reason for the nerfs were to make PVE gear as good as, and some even slightly better than, PVP gear even when gemmed for raiding. That is, Blizzard rightly assumed every PVE'er would QQ over the fact that they would have to swap out their PVE gems in order to hang with the PVP folks.

As a PVP'er, this nerf - although Blizzard maintains that it was to help PVP'ers - is beyond retarded.

Obviously it's a welcome "nerf" for PVE folks since their "PVE raiding gems" will also be BiS gems for PVP.


Repeating this absurd statement does NOT make it true...
Wow... you really don't understand anything at all, do you?


Do you? Clearly not.

It was to close the gap, PVP gear is still better. dddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd
Why do you keep reporting your first post. It has already been discredited at this point. Do you think that if people reread your garbage, that it'll come true?

It works for Fox News...

Do you really care?

Most hardcore PvE'rs are terrible at PvP or don't even give a crap about it.

The ones that are good, are usually exceptionally good and they will just keep doing what they're doing.

Basically all this change does is make it easier for lesser geared people to actually have a chance.
PvP gear will be better because they'll both have the same base stats (stam/int/crit etc) but pvp gear will have resil and pvp power on it.


Item - Rogue T15 4P Bonus: Shadow Blades also reduces the cost of all your abilities by 40%.
So you basically copy pasted what Ghostcrawler said about the reasoning for the reductions, and somewhere in between the blue post and the forum pages you !@#$ed up the grammar and made it sound like a Down Syndrome Etheopian toddler wrote it.

There you go copy -> pasting again

As a PVP'er


Yeah you're pretty hardcore in that department huh? You've seen some !@#$ m8
If you really think it would make sense for the game designers to make PvP gear worse for PvP than PvE gear, you've gone full retard...

Also, read that Maximus guy's post on the bottom of p1 if you would like to understand how this will actually work when 5.3 drops... or you know... hit the PTR and find out for yourself.

Now QQ away.


you know how those pve'rs are so good at the game that they s key all over the place in thier shiny epics hell as far as im concerned if they are on even footing it means my arena que times drop or my bgs go even better since they dont actually know how to play pvp.
It couldn't possibly be because since everyone will get 65% res baseline, that some classes might hard stack pvp power instead; therefore causing far too much dmg and not solving any of the burst issues.

I HAVE A DREAM!

I have a dream that one day the PVP'ers will rise up and stand up to this nonsense that is 5.3: "We PVP'ers hold this truth to be self-evident, that PVP gear should be better than PVE gear in any, and all, PVP settings."

We need more QQ guys! I can't hear your crying!!
LOL...

So how are you guys liking this POS 5.3 fustercluck?
