this is my point
wow arena is broken. pve always has better classes that cycle and many other classes that suck.
Every class has been viable in PvE for a while. Arena is unbalanced, but not broken until you get highest-level. That's gonna happen with 10 unique classes.
the concept of gearing new characters is next to impossible if you want to COMPETE in a high end guild and your current guild does not have the ability or wish to help gear your new "main"
Completely false. Higher-end raiders are always making and gearing new alts.
this leads you to making that character more casual and deters people from
ever aspiring. here is where my point comes in. you should be able to do something highly interesting and that MATTERS other then adding gear to your character and becoming hardcore.
e.g. the new PvE content they added?
the fact that raiding requires a TON of time to be "good" at it or even just "complete" it is troublesome.
But it doesn't unless you WANT to play hardcore.
my friends who pve spend hours every other night and some in top guilds spend hours EVERY night to complete content that they have already done many times before and the only reason they complete it is so they can ACTUALLY DO the next patches content.
It doesn't take that much to do regular content, unless your guild is terrible. If you want to do hardcore content, it WILL take more time, as it should.
any game that once you beat something requires you to keep on beating it over and over and over for months just so you can ACTUALLY DO THE NEXT RAID/PATCH is a HORRIBLE system of a game.
Tell that to MMOs. Is that why WoW has failed for 7 years?
how can you defend the wow style of gaming one might ask? well thats because you lack vision and are used to the only way you know how. once someone introduces you to a new way of thinking you question how such older ideas were even done.
Of course... it's because I lack vision. Now I get it.
if you list what good MMOs exist right now you can clearly see why wow is #1 and the answer is always "gameplay" and by gameplay i mean how you control your character.
Much more content that's much more accessible.
its a bad system man... you defend the game but i think your just blindly defending a game you enjoy and are content. ppl like me and clearly the guy i quote are not content with just whatever is out at the moment and we seek to find/create/mold bigger and better
Myself and millions of players disagree.
