imageMany World of Warcraft Classic Hunter 'Bugs' Aren't & Are Working as Intended

The World of Warcraft Classic forum has a lengthy post by the development team about bugs many players have been reporting about the Hunter class. While many of the bugs are legit and have been confirmed with fixes incoming, at least a half-dozen of the most commonly reported bugs are actually "behaving as expected".

Read the full story here

    I find this hilarious!

    Another round of Blizzard having to tell people "it's not a bug, that's just how the game was you idiots"

    Yeah, I really don't have high hopes for long term success for this.

    Not really. People still enjoy the game regardless. Nobody liked vanilla because it was bug free. They enjoy and play vanilla DESPITE the bugs. Goes to show how interesting and fun the game has to be.

    I don't PvP with melee toons in WoW. Warlock and Shamans are what I enjoyed in BGS.

    I'm looking forward tk trying it as missed the vanilla stage, as for long term it will be interesting to see how this unfolds for sure.

    Being able to play as a female dwarf hunter is NOT a bug.

    I mean....it would've been nice if they actually treated the beta as an actual better rather than just a free hype-train, but when was the last time Blizzard had a proper alpha/beta testing period....?

    Yes really because people put up with that crap with the expectation that Blizzard would fix them.

    I'm going to love watching the wailing and gnashing of teeth as the informed brethren explain to unwashed masses how they're supposed to embrace these authentic "features".

    It will be hard to tell people to "Go back to WoW" when they're already playing it. :lol:

    People assume everyone reporting these bugs are veterans from classic with rose colored glasses and faulty memory's where as the reality is majority of the people are experiencing this beta (classic) for the first time.

    I mean... the list of fixed/known bugs is larger than the 'is not bug' list...

    Classic has two waiting periods before the real fun begins: the wait for release, and then the wait until all the people who don't get the point of it either finally get it or leave.

    HINT: If you don't understand why inconveniences were baked into the game, you are one of those people.

    If we had the generation of whiners we have now wow would have failed within 3 months.

    That doesn't explain them demanding bugs be replicated though.
    My guess they are afraid what they will do if they try to fix things XD

    They should fix one thing that really wrecked the game though. Allowing you to receive items or gold from your alts and friends. It just corrupts the whole sense of wonder and challenge to make anything easy on your alts. It's a temptation no one can resist.

    They weren't baked into the game.

    The absence of QOL features was because they hadn't been developed yet. Suggesting the lack of polish and features was somehow the master plan is pretty ignorant. No one has that kind of foresight.

    Wow barely scrapes the definition of an mmo, i wouldn't give them that much credit. A system which funnels everyone into small groups in copies of the same content isn't my definition of a genre defining system. They aren't messiahs or prophets.

    Also, I agree with you, I can hardly wait until everyone leaves. Group finders didn't ruin anything. No one's forcing you to use it. The problem is, people like you need a system that forces it the other way, where no one has a choice. Which means everyone's conveniently lumped into a single pool of players to facilitate YOUR chosen playstyle.

    "Adapt or Quit" mentality always leads to a toxic and dwindling player base. Hence the need for evolution, polish, features, QoL and new content.

    Umm ... sure.

    The current state of live Wow is calling out your bullshit.

    You stay sassy!
