Quicker Ad Reporting in the Group Finder

Recommended Posts

P8bM0tU.jpg

Blizzard released a hotfix on live servers that lets you quickly report ads in the Group Finder.

Group reporting has become a lot easier on live servers. If you find a group in the Group Finder containing ads, you can now simply right-click and report it. The whole process has been simplified into two mouse clicks!

Hopefully, this will help combat the multitude of groups that violate the game's Terms of Service.

Thank goodness. The process of opening a window and selecting several option was quite annoying. Sometimes you just to report the adverts quickly to get them out of the list.

While this is nice to have, it doesn't solve the overall problem. For every boosting group you report and take off the list, there are 3 others that are added to it. Boosting has become a plague on WoW and Blizzard is complacent to allow it to continue because so long as boosts exist, people will buy them, and for some people to buy them, they will buy WoW tokens to trade for the gold to buy said boost, directly giving Blizzard more money. One could view it as WoW being P2W now since you can just drop real money into WoW tokens, sell those tokens for gold, and use that gold to buy boosts and get any item you want, a real shame.

thats not how it works. you can buy 100 raid boss boosts or m+ boost and still dont get the item you want. due to rating and sites where you can check with whom that guy ran his m+ keys or if you see that guy did a boss way more often then the others people wont invite you because you are boosted. so in general its a nice to have for alts, people with less time, people who come back and wanna play with their friends but they arent up 2 date, getting "mandatory" raid items you need for m+ or getting "mandatory" m+ items for raiding.

im normally not taking any boosts because i can achive that on my own or with the help of my tank premade but due to late shifts i cant raid anymore because im home around 23:30/0:00 and there is just no raid guild raiding at that time on my realm so for the very first time i bought boosts for Kel to get Forbidden Necromantic Tome which never dropped for me.

another example, rogues still want sylvanas daggers, most likely only way to get a grp for sylvanas myth is to hire a boost grp. i see rogues regularly askin in /2 for that because never ever is a grp open for it.

also making gold is pretty simple and easy. i dont get why some people struggle with that, since legion im paying everything with gold and i just buy mats in AH and craft things and sell them with my main. never made as much gold as i did this addon with legendary crafting and im a casual AH guy im not even using TSM but my old auctioneer. only anoying part is that you have to relist your stuff every once in a while but if you put something in around 4 am you are the lowest for several hours. also i sold many in /2 since the boosting spam is gone.

im ok with how the rules are now, advertisers have to be max level (advertiser have to take part in the boosting grp which isnt possible with level 1) and have to be on your realm otherwise report them, i got plenty thank yous from blizzard allrdy :)

Have fun playing in an inflated economy where your playtime is worth less than a mcdonald job and competing against people who dump a few salaries worth of gold into the economy every raid release.

thx. since a month play time is ~13€ a month its obvsl less worth then a mcdonalds job which earns you enough for a living in most countries.

and about your 2nd part, the high investment of gold from guilds who participate in world first races, their raid member earn their monthly income with this, it got a bit out of hand lately but it doesnt destroy the game thought. i dont earn my monthly income by playing wow so this is ok for me.

McDonalds pays way above the living wage in most countries since its a stressful job (not sure about outside of Europe though). Spending 20e for a piece of loot is way easier than sitting for 2 hours in a raid without knowing whether you'll even kill it. This ruins the game once the japanese/korean pay to win mindset comes here.

i looked that up and in nearly every european country they pay minimum wage but anyways that doesnt matter and was an overall strange statement made by you.

so how do you spend 20€ for a piece of loot and have a guarantee to get it from raid? personally, as i said, i have no time for raiding and i bought several Kel'Thuzad runs (6 for my mage, prices between 70k - 200k) and never got the trinket. also bought 4 Kel'Thuzad boosts for my twink warrior and never got the weapon. so overall i probably wasted 1 mio gold on this which equals 3-4 wow token at that time (i regularly buy token for gold to pay game time or buy services or games) token prices had been aroun 250-270k. that would have been 60-80€ for no items at all.

The only place you looked that up is your *filtered*, for example in Slovakia, companies must disclose the salary by law, the lowest job offer (student position mcdonalds part time worker) is paid 4.90e+ while the minimum wage is 3.713e/hr. They also get bonuses for overtime, holidays and weekends which is a considerable chunk of their working hours.

As for the second part, it's purely your problem you got scammed, GDKP runs are a way safer route to acquire gear with real money investment, you just get in and pay WHEN it drops instead of paying for "boost runs". This adds the extra layer of gold/money management that may not be present in pure boost run, which may be too much for someone.

You also state you have no time to raid but later mention your game time and services are bought with gold. Where do you get the gold  then? If it's not the token you're either spending time in game which contradicts your statement about not having time for raiding, or using RMT services.

why does mcdonalds salaries matter for you? your example was bad and not even in relation to the topic. fine if it is like that in slovakia. in most european countries (most doesnt mean in every) mcdonalds pays the minimum wage. i wont look up every country for you so as an example, germany, netherlands, spain and out of europe, UK pays also minimum wage. look up the rest if you like yourself.

at least in germany they get paid 450€ for christmas, which isnt standart but doesnt change the fact that they get minimum wage so all bonuses, overtimes, holidays and weekend extras doesnt change that fact. can we drop this sensless example now?

what? as if someone offers such a system. do the work and might dont get paid for it because no item dropped is plain bs or extremly rare, i never seen such an offer and im playing on the biggest german realm.

edit: seems like those  runs are a thing in wow classic but not in retail due to many reasons. also GDKP run means that someone offers gold for a raid item and the one who offered the most gets the item, at the end of the run gold is shared equally between everyone in raid, even people who bought items get the same amount gold as everyone. nothing close to what you wrote and doesnt even sound like a boost run since people have to participate normally in the raid, according to buffed, reddit and official wow forum posts

      Last week's title proved to be cursed, as Blizzard postponed the Destruction nerfs, and so the top spec remains very much unchanged, but the rest of the tuning did go through, with Affliction getting a boost and some tanks getting changes as well.
      Mythic
      95th Percentile
      While Destruction avoided its ultimate fate for a while longer, Demonology is just biding its time to claim that No.1 spot. Survival moved into 3rd as it passed Frost DK, but it is also scheduled for a nerf (although an unspecified one) in Season 4, so the year of the spear may be coming to an end. Windwalker remains firm in 5th after its 9.2.5 buff, as Unholy continues to climb, rising 1 into 6th and passing Elemental. Feral sees a huge upswing, as it jumps 6 spots into 8th, followed by Marksmanship. However, Feral isn't the biggest mover this week, with Affliction actually rising into the top 10 after its buff, 10 spots up from last week and a full 14 spots up from its dead-last spot before that. Now we do have a relatively smaller group of players even plying Affliction, so the numbers aren't necessarily the most accurate, but it's definitely received a boost and might prompt some more to play it (at least in Season 4 when Destro moves out of the top).

      95th percentile Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      All Percentiles
      Survival moves past Frost DK in the generalist bracket as well, but the big news is Affliction once again, which is doing even better here, moving into No.6 after the buffs, climbing 8 spots! The buff may not have been that big, but it seems to have worked, at least for now. The rest remains mostly the same, with Retribution moving up a few spots and all three mage specs moving further towards the bottom, where Fire has taken residence.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Tanks and Healers
      The tanks got a bit of a shakeup with the class tuning, but it hasn't impacted the numbers yet, on the contrary in fact, as Protection Warrior takes the top spot, while it was Guardian and Vengeance that actually got buffed in the tuning, but remained in their same spots. Paladins dropped 2 spots in the DPS charts as they swapped places with Warriors, and Brewmasters remained at the bottom.
      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Healers didn't get any changes in terms of tuning, and their rankings remained very similar, with only discipline moving up 2 spots.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Heroic
      Demonology is in charge in Heroic, as Destruction remains down in 15th where it's been for a while now. The big mover at the top is Enhancement, as it slots into 3rd place, 3 up from last week! Survival recovers after a dip, landing in 5th, and is followed by one of the biggest outliers in Heroic, with Balance sitting in 6th, in stark contrast to it's very low standing in Mythic.

      All percentiles Heroic data by Warcraft Logs.
       
      As always, if you want even more info on a spec, you can check out our class guides here, for a DPS tier list you can go here, or for even more data, head on over to Warcraft Logs. You can also check out our Sepulcher raid guides.

      If you change your Loot Specialization, Zereth Mortis World and Daily Quests can offer different weapons as rewards.
      The game will offer you different rewards from World and Daily Quests on live servers when you switch your Loot Specialization. Here is a short video demonstration video:

      You can utilize Loot Specialization switching to collect transmogs or weapons for your off-spec.

      Note that this only works in Zereth Mortis and it takes approximately 10 seconds for the rewards to change.

      Update: it seems there's only half a mystery here, as I actually just didn't spot the Path of Frost icon, which led to the death. Apologies there. GY port is still a bug though!
      It seems someone's been pouring concrete around Stormwind's oceans, as JuliusLeNightmare faced off against some water and lost, only to be teleported to a very far away graveyard.
      Now while the teleport to the Tirisfal graveyard and the weird invasion of the zone near Stormwind is a well-known phenomenon/spatial anomaly, the transformation of the water into concrete is slightly weirder! Forsaken conspiracy/concrete pouring or weird bug? You decide!

      We've seen many WoW-related Minecraft builds over the years, and this is one of the better ones, as it takes the Alliance capital and transforms it extremely well. After 200 hours of work, @Yunatahel finally finished up and shared the project with the world, so let's take a look!
      Warning: potentially loud twitter video sound.
      Even the official WoW twitter account commented!

      You can also check out a different take on Stormwind (and Orgrimmar) here, and a recent Silvermoon rebuild here.

      After today's reveal of the Priest Dragonflight talent tree, Blizzard went into a little more detail for one particular Shadow talent, as it was a little unclear what it did. Here's the basic tooltip we got today, which will be updated.

      "Idol of Y'Shaarj: Shadowfiend causes you to gain a benefit based on your target's current emotional state."
      Idol of Y'Shsarj (Source)
      Idol of Y’Shaarj will receive a new tooltip as we get closer to Dragonflight. In the meantime though, here’s a breakdown of what it currently does:
      If your target is…
      Above 80% health? → Pride
      You and your Shadowfiend deal increased damage while Shadowfiend is active. Enraged? → Anger
      Purges the enraged effect and increases your Haste while Shadowfiend is active. Stunned? → Despair
      You generate Insanity while Shadowfiend is active. Feared? → Fear
      You and your Shadowfiend deal increased damage and do not break fear effects while Shadowfiend is active. No conditions met? → Violence
      Duration of Shadowfiend is increased. The priority order is:
      Anger/Despair/Fear → Pride → Violence
      As with everything in the talent tree, these effects are subject to change. I hope this clears up some confusion. We’ll continue monitoring the community’s feedback and we look forward to sharing more Dragonflight details in the future!
