Maybe now that they are working on the Vanilla code they are having one epiphany after another: "Yo, remember this? This was cool back in the day, let's put it back in."BruceYee said:
no idea why this new blizzard B team feels the need to reinvent major system EVERY SINGLE XPAC
To present something as "new" that previously existed in the game with some minor alterations to fool people who either haven't played for very long or don't remember/care.
I honestly wouldn't be surprised if they bring back talent trees sometime and call it a new feature along with insect swarm druid spell and spellstones.
They probably plan future expansions by writing features that exist/existed in the game on tiny pieces of paper, put them into a jar and hold a "development meeting" where they pick them out. Whatever feature is chosen has to be either resurrected, severely nerfed/modified, or completely removed from current WoW so they'll be able to present it as new 1-2-3 expansions later.
If that is what you got from their site, there might be some mistakes printed there. The streams and forums and other ways of communications should be more reliable.Neanderthal said:
Since nobody wanted to answer my question I went and looked around on their official site. After a short time there I remembered why I wasn't interested in this game.
They are going for very complicated character building but with no way to respec. Or maybe some very limited and difficult to get respecs.
You know, at first when I was reading through that stuff it almost sounded fun. Sort of like building a deck with Magic cards which I really did enjoy doing. But the problem is that it would be like building a Magic deck when you only get a few cards a week to choose from; you aren't told just exactly how all the cards will interact with each other; It will take months to finish building your deck, and after it's done you're stuck with it and can't make any changes.....ever.
Yeah....no thanks. Also, I got the very distinct impression that they are so focused on their convoluted character building system that they are probably forgetting that the actual combat itself needs to be fun. Ok guys, so you have this really complex character building stuff but when a player takes his character out into the battlefield to fight--is that part fun?
Maybe it is thanks because of my crappy connection preventing me from watching twitch, but I never really understood the whole point behind watching someone else play a video game. It's like choosing porn over sex.Tiller said:
There is also this trend now that, as much as people protest and say, “Why are you canceling a linear, story-based game? This is the kind of game we want,” people aren’t necessarily buying them. They’re watching somebody else play them online.
