Blizzard hasn’t learned
They sold us Dragonflight as the expansion where they’d learned a lesson from all the mistakes of Shadowlands and yet once again we’re looking at an Alpha filled with unpopular changes that every tester on the forums had expressed displeasure with and Blizzard isnt listening, isnt responding. 2 weeks of nonstop complaints about how terrible Soar is from every tester and not a word from Blizzard about it
Then you have 2 weeks of total uproar about Slime Cat. It blew up all over the forums, in the game, on youtube and twitter and Blizzard silently changes the wording around with a word to players.
Dragonriding was considered a slam dunk by testers and Blizzard decided to give it heavy input lag and called it “weight” which turned a slam dunk into something unresponsive and markedly less fun to use.
How can they seriously sit back and keep pretending they learned a lesson when theyre hitting us with the exact same trashy design philosophy that created the “Fun detected, fun nerfed” meme? How long can they keep coming up with bogus excuses like “efficiency advantages” and “realism” when all theyre doing is making systems slower and less appealing? How many more “exodus” moments does WoW have to have before they pull their heads out of the sand and stop trying to punish players for not adhering to Activisions “vision” for how the game should be played?
