A) No.  He's not.  Theyve said trolls and KT were NOT coming with launch since almost immediately after expansion was announced.  If you didnt know you hadn't been paying attention.

B) youre unsubbed but 'have to play around with guys like him?'  I dont have the slightest clue what that could even mean.  

Un-subbed to wow and complaining (literally, just complaining) about it.  Its ok to NOT like it.  Its ok to voice that opinion, just like his is OK to counter it.  If you dont like it, dont play it.  

...and there goes their attempt at a 'cash grab.'  You just achieved victory over evil blizzard.  Raise your sword in defiance, you internet warrior you.

Not being a toxic asshole - just teasing a guy who navigated a blizzard site to visit a wow thread to let everyone know he quit wow. its ironic and weird. Were all adults and this is a forum site where users can post and comment. 

Regardless - sorry to hear you dont like the xpack. I love it and the vocal community who complain about every facet of this expansion drives me crazy. If you dont like it, then quit. If you have constrictive criticism to give, then provide it. No need to post about it constantly to let the world know how the new wow expansion doesnt fit you. 

Dont forget that WoW and literally every other game you play is made by a company whose ultimate goal is to make money. Advertising a discounted service  that compliments a feature that was just rolled out is just a smart business strategy, and literally has no impact on how you play the game (and you can buy it with WoW gold for probably 100k)

unsure if me disagreeing with you makes me a "toxic asshole" - but if it does, apologies.

Even though this guy got a point in not advertising quitting wow like you beat cancer. I can still see what the other guy means. It is something when you've been playing it for years on end only to see it run down corporate cash grabbing hands. Kind of makes it easier to stop playing it. 

Although I don't play WoW I still navigate here since there's other games besides WoW, like HoTS, Diablo 3 and Overwatch. So I can see keeping up to date on a game that is very much interesting to follow in case of 'it might get better for me' hope peeks up from the maybe grave of games. 

I still like the genre, the game lore, the fantasy of it. That's why I follow it.

Oh I wish I could grab that sword and raise it, but baby boy Anduin and little angry Sally Sylvanas just keep shouting at each other.

But I must give it to them, they got *filtered* done. All it took was a few demons and Daddy Varian to die.

I'm not even surprised... Although that one wasn't advertised, it's certainly not unexpected ("cough" Kul'tiran and aspecially Zandalari racials "cough").

From a corporate point of view Activision Blizzard are failing. Activision/Blizz's stock value has more or less been cut in half since last October, where shares were traded (on NASDAQ that is) for about USD 83. Current stock value of one share is about USD 43. So - again from a corporate point of view - they absolutely had/have to do something, because they are losing investors. IIRC someone already posted those thoughts in the cash only pig mount thread. That mount, the removal of certain items from the store as well as those paid services might be short term attempts to fix the current state (or to keep the stock from falling even further, although it seems, stock value stabilized at around USD 42/43), because they generate raw cash for blizz.

We might still praise Blizz for creating great games - in the past - and revel in those nostalgic memories but times change. I'm up for discussing the current state of Blizz's games as I seem to be not quite as negative some of you - I still love the entire WoW universe for example. In the end ThomasC got it quite right:

You're not going to make her WoW jealous by talking about how your new girlfriend game is so much better than she WoW is.

So weren't they talking about how Zandalari Racials were probably going to get nerfed not long ago?

Guess it would be after people pay to race change and suddenly the racials are found to be way too OP a few months down the line?    Gotta have that empirical evidence after all that a full heal (that can be combo'd with the newly available paladin class to be unstoppable!) and various Loa buffs to choose from actually beat +1% to random-*filtered* stats that other races have.    But hey, those race changers will definitely miss the bonus to herbalism right? ?

They already did - well sort of. On PTR Regeneratin' used to heal 25% of max health every 1 sec for 4 seconds, was not interrupted by damage and had a short cooldown of 1 minute, 30 seconds. I guess even Blizz had to admit that was OP ?

For Reference: Live state is 100% health over 6 seconds (17%/sec), interrupted by damage, cooldown of 2.5 minutes. Still quite the potential for bubble-shenanigans...

Yeah but they had talked about potentially needing even more nerfs after that, it was even reported on this site a couple weeks back.    Regeneratin is still op as hell for paladins, especially tanks with last stand (or in pvp in general)

And yet because the paladins with that one spec using the ability means it needs to be nerfed to the ground for other classes ?

Same with damn Belf and their arcane torrent to rid of zul minions or the same creep in Kings Rest. Its a niche thing for one spec. 

I'd rather have it unable to be used during bubble as a minor fix. Don't need to ruin it for all other classes.

Paladins just make it "auto OP".    If you're able to full heal through knowledge of boss timings or after say, using a polymorph and blinking away in pvp, it's still far stronger than any comparable racials.

      Are you wondering how your spec performs in Mythic+? Here's a tier list with all specializations!
      DISCLAIMER
      In this article, we are taking a look at the tier list for Mythic+ based on the data gathered by Benched.me. The site plots all runs available from the Blizzard API (excluding the Chinese region) on a single ridge plot, so it is different from our Shadowlands Mythic+ Rankings maintained by Petko.
      How the Data is Calculated
      To rank all specializations, Benched.me uses something called Meta Ratio Score. The "ratio" is between the specialization's representation in the meta vs. its representation in the population. For example, a specialization makes up 3% of all players in the population, but 6% in the meta, which means that spec's ratio is 6% / 3% = 2.
      Furthermore, the site defines the "population" as all keys level 2 through 15 and the "meta" as keys 16 and above. Based on that, we break down specs into tiers based on their meta ratio as follows:
      S-Tier: Ratio of at least 1.5. A-Tier: Ratio between 1 and 1.5. B-Tier: Ratio between 0.5 and 1. C-Tier: Ratio below 0.5, but greater than 0. F-Tier: Ratio of 0 (the spec isn't present in the high-level bin at all). Spec Tier List for Mythic+
      S-Tier
      Fire Mage - 2.02 ratio Balance Druid - 1.75 ratio Outlaw Rogue - 1.74 ratio Vengeance Demon Hunter - 1.64 ratio A-Tier
      Holy Paladin - 1.37 ratio Restoration Shaman - 1.36 ratio Windwalker Monk - 1.33 ratio Marksmanship Hunter - 1.28 ratio Brewmaster Monk - 1.15 ratio Fury Warrior - 1.14 ratio Discipline Priest - 1.08 ratio Affliction Warlock - 1.08 ratio B-Tier
      Guardian Druid - 0.89 ratio Unholy Death Knight - 0.75 ratio Shadow Priest - 0.73 ratio Havoc Demon Hunter - 0.72 ratio Restoration Druid - 0.71 ratio Blood Death Knight - 0.61 ratio Protection Paladin - 0.53 ratio Holy Priest - 0.5 ratio Elemental Shaman - 0.5 ratio C-Tier
      Enhancement Shaman - 0.47 ratio Protection Warrior - 0.41 ratio Mistweaver Monk - 0.41 ratio Feral Druid - 0.41 ratio Survival Hunter - 0.39 ratio Destruction Warlock - 0.39 ratio Frost Mage - 0.37 ratio Retribution Paladin - 0.35 ratio Assassination Rogue - 0.35 ratio Frost Death Knight - 0.31 ratio Subtlety Rogue - 0.31 ratio Arcane Mage - 0.31 ratio Arms Warrior - 0.30 ratio Demonology Warlock - 0.28 ratio Beast Mastery Hunter - 0.19 ratio

      We finally have 100 Alliance guilds that have taken down Sire Denathrius and cleared Castle Nathria on Mythic difficulty, which means cross-realm Mythic is on its way!
      The final kill occurred around 5:30 CET today, and since the cross-realm feature arrives on the next reset after the 100th kill it might be available to EU players today (this is the very same timing as the Ny'alotha 100th Alliance kill and it was available the same day in EU then, but there were some server issues around that time so we're not 100% sure), while US/OC players might have to wait until their next Tuesday reset. The Hall of Fame: Sire Denathrius (Alliance) achievement and Famed Slayer of Denatrius titles should still be available until the next reset (again, most likely only of US/OC players, given the timing).
      Proud Manlets was the final guild to claim one of the Hall of Fame spots on the Alliance side, and it's taken 29 days for the blue team to catch up to the red.


      You can check out the full Hall of Fame here.
      Thanks to NageK for spotting the final kill!

      Here's another Mythic+ non-meta victory, with a controller using tank finishing up the achievement in the worst Covenant for the spec in M+, in PUGs!
      We look at the log rankings, tier lists and various other optimizations and standings a lot here, so it's also important to point out that you really can get most non-highest end content done with any spec you want. Berub proved this and then some, as they got KSM while tanking as a Blood Death Knight Night Fae, the worst Covenant for M+ for the spec AND used a controller while doing it! And the best part? The reason Berub chose Night Fae is because of the armor looks!

      And while many others have completed KSM with off-meta specs, and some did with a controller as well, the tank + worst Covenant + controller part is especially impressive, and Berub didn't quite mention the control method to the groups, or those runs probably never would have happened at all. Here are some comments from the journey:
      Hopefully examples like this encourage players to try new things and now be quite as limited by the meta, despite it being pretty hard to get into groups, especially for DPS.

      This week's world boss is Mortanis and you can find him in Maldraxxus.
      Mortanis
      One of the most studied necromancers of the House of Rituals, Mortanis has been working tirelessly on a means of transforming himself into a more powerful form. Now, he is only a few moments from succeeding.

      Mortanis drops Item Level 207 loot along with various Legendary Power recipes and Conduits. Do not forget to pick the Renown weekly quest for 1,000 Anima before killing Mortanis. We are listing the full loot table below. 

      Memory of Fujieda (Warrior Legendary Power) Memory of Keefer (Monk Legendary Power) Memory of a Guile Charm (Rogue Legendary Power) Band of the Risen Bonelord (Ring) Mortanis's Ribcage (Mail Chest) Bone Crushing Vicegrips (Mail Gloves) Bone-Cleated Footpads (Leather Feet) Spine Crawler Waistcord (Cloth Belt) Shoulderblade Vambraces (Plate Wrists)

      There seem to be some new issues with the EU authentication servers, as many players are unable to log in. So if you're having trouble playing at the moment, don't worry, it's not just you:

      Anyone having issues loggin in (EU)? fix the servers Blizzard have also responded on the matter, but it seems to still be ongoing:
      So we'll just have to wait a bit more, although the issue has been persisting for about an hour now.
