Man I am so excited to see this game come out, can't wait to see how hard it fails. I wonder if it will be worse than D3, I sure hope so. With all the anger at D3/blizz I think a lot will carry over to Pandas. I'm sure there will be lots of updates on WoW subs from various sites. And who is going to play WoWs imba pvp when GW2 comes out? Sure arena players are a small percent but maybe pvpers will completely desert the game.

Wait wait wait... maybe blizz is sabotaging D3 and WoW so people will play Titan or w/e.... like make the games so horrible but people buy it anyway, then try to redeem themselves with an actual good nonstarcraft game... hmm...

I agree but I wouldnt even argue this point man. I'd just argue that its impossible to balance so many different classes/specs/abilities. FPS is easy to balance because its balanced by nature. Only spawn points and gun vs gun balance really matter. For RTS there are a lot of random/incomplete information, BUT the better player is still going to win most of the time. Its like poker basically while MMO/RPGs are more like rolling dice.
Blizzard didnt care to balance wow arena, I waited and waited but they didnt care. GW2 might be good but I have no idea how they will balance it. I mean warcraft 4 had 4 races and it wasnt exactly balanced in a few matchups, how are you gonna balance 3v3 with 10 classes or w/e it is, plus specs, plus gear. GW2 realizes gear should be standardized for stats (derp derp derp blizzard) and they limited abilities (relative to GW1).
Anyway wow is a joke game because missing a blind for instance is gamebreaking.Edited by Ploppytheman - 7/29/12 at 11:26am
