Shamans and Paladins in WoW were always able to do end games in all 3 roles (enhance, elemental and resto / ret, tank and holy) since WoW came out. It was just harder to perform well and to get the appropriate gear (an enhance shammy used to be top dps in vanilla wow raids like BWL and AQ40). Flexibility = harder to be optimal in every role. Flexibility /= easy mode faceroll wins.
Not only are you brown nosing Doctor"I'mNeverWrongYou'reJustTooStupidTooSeeMyBrilliance"Mog, but you're trying to put out false information about WoW. Hint: If you were "top DPS" in the vanilla raids as a hybrid, your other players frankly were utterly terrible. You may as well be trying to lie and say "My 2004 RDM did more damage than any RNG or BLM back then!"
Fact: Hybrids in WoW weren't actually viable damage dealers until Wrath of the Lich King. Enhancement/Elemental Shamans were given just enough raid buffs to make those two spots viable on the buffs alone (plus blood lust/heroism), and Shadow Priests were given low DPS and high mana regen for the groups they were in (Ret Paladins were just... no). It wasn't until they abandoned that moronic mindset in the 2nd expansion that all hybrids had all of their roles almost equal to the 'pure' classes.
The fact that you really don't understand what flexibility is sad. Go look up the definition.
Its interesting that everyone can be a jerk to me, but as soon as I turn it around, its flaunted like Im the only one doing it.
It seems you missed quoting the person who said the exact same "protip" line to me 2 post earlier.
From what I see, you're the one slinging the mud first, and that just screams of childishness. All you've posted is rampant defense of a stat allocation system that allows you to be sub-optimal in any role you choose. People stated that such a system is moronic (which it is), and you started to call people stupid.
You're the one insulting people in your posts and in videos. So yes, you do deserve to be treated like a jerk as you're the one presenting himself as such.
Actually, my distaste is only directed at the people who look at my evidence for something, and then continue to refute my evidence with half cocked theories on how they think the game could be better.
evidence? You've posted NOTHING even resembling evidence aside from ranting on the forums about how people don't see your vision of how the game is supposed to be played and some random videos illustrating someone that's fine with loading up his class with non-useful/non-pertinent stats and calling it "flexible" and "the way it should be done but people are too stupid to figure it out".
People need to work out the best way to use the system, offer CONSTRUCTIVE feedback in the correct forum, and to stop driving the people who are looking for information AWAY from these forums.
Lapping at the developer's balls isn't constructive.
Pointing out that such a restricted stat allocation system combined with an on-the-fly class change feature is counter-productive? That's constructive. They didn't rant; they didn't curse out SE; they merely pointed out what common sense tells them.
Who's opinion of better though?
Put it in the correct forum, leave your bashing out of the forums people read looking for INFORMATION. Not opinions.
You've posted nothing but an opinion. So why didn't you post this in the correct forum, according to your own statement?
You've stated nothing but opinions after opinions. Here's something factual
for you to chew on:
The company itself says the game sucks. That's why it's free.
What really needs to happen to this game is that people need to stop bashing it. The #1 issue with this game is the 10% who are unhappy with the game and feel the need to voice their opinion so loudly on the forums that they give the illusion that they are the majority, when in fact they are not.
That's why my LS of probably ~100 members is completely dead most of the time. It's time to wake up to reality: people don't like the game.
Argue all you want DoctorMog about how the people need to stop bashing it and just accept it. Ultimately, they're right and you're WRONG because the company's public statement sides with THEM and not YOU.
