Pvp Rank Pool Changes

I mean pvp is super cringe now, like its down to just one shotting at this point rather than skill

imagine playing classic for its pvp at this point

Except I’m talking about an actual in game economic downside vs a perceived downside of ranking integrity.

Then they should’ve fixed it a year ago, not when over 90% of the pvp population already obtained said ranks.

I don’t defend them failing to handle hacks and botting, but this is a fairly easy exploit to nail down. With all big long laundry lists of problems you gotta start somewhere so this is a start.

I feel that they could be a lot more aggressive with the action taken against cheating and hacking and that investment of effort would be rewarding not only for Classic WoW but Retail and eventually TBC also.

There is no loss in output by investing into the integrity of the game play so long as that effort is made. Failing to do so is far more costly in the long term than just letting it slide because getting the people on your side so that they want to buy your games is a big component in being profitable. Blizzard has for too long banked on former deeds to prop them up, and account balance of good will has been in overdraft for a few years now.

Lol as if this change gets anyone on their side go read the hot fix thread bud.

I did, and you are concerned with this one specifically.

Although there are these other things.

What do you say about the fact that it is literally impossible to rank passed r12 on low pop servers now?

It’s going to be another service offered by bot accounts. Blizzard is upping their subscriptions again!


“lvl 1 deleted characters” but lvl 1s will still count, shows you that this patch is more of an angle for Blizzy to bring in more subscriptions.


That is not the Blizzard way. Exploit early and exploit often is the Blizzard way, because Blizzard is slow to move to change/fix anything, and tend not to punish/remove the benefits from people who exploited.


Imagine fixing this after all the people who typically rank are already done?

Like what a stupid change.

I think almost the entire population who wanted to rank already has 2+ rank 14’s, this change is beyond late to even matter.

Not to mention its a silly change as all it does is benefit the server by having pool parties, it lessens the grind for everyone who wanted to rank by fixing this broke ranking system.

So many better things to fix.


This will only further industrialize the “pool bloating” Because instead of anyone with 2 accounts now you will need hundreds and the only ones who have those resources are the massive bot farms in russia and china

They will profit more because the competition is gone and the prices will be higher.

People will still pad the brackets but now its the bot farms who will profit.

Blizzard just bloat the ranks yourself please

Small servers will die and many pvpers will leave the game.

Please reconsider blizzard

People will be unable to get r14 on small servers

Please inflate the brackets yourselves

I’d say that’s exactly what they wanted. Now you have to transfer to another server to rank up if you still want it. More $$.

If this was about $$ blizzard would of had this change into effect before the first people got rank 14.

Kind of silly to say its about money when the majority of players have been done ranking for months.

Had to unblock you for this one since you’re always salty. Actually no, lots of people transferred to low pop servers for easier ranking to begin with. Now people will be doing it the opposite way if they still care about ranking. Honestly my post was kind of satire in that they still would probably have made about the same amount of money either way (which will be little at this point because ranking is almost dead now). If they had done this change earlier however they would have made significantly LESS money, but i know you have a hard time thinking through your comments before you post.

ill beat u with any class noob, classic pvp is 10x better and more balanced than retail

Better? Questionable. More balanced? Sure, I’ll give you that.

This is a good change. The number or people who achieved ranks they never would have because of pool inflating is ridiculous.

There is a way around it still… coordinate with other servers, don’t delete the toons and pool party like people used to.

Otherwise - I think you’ll still be able to pay people to pool inflate, albeit at a much higher cost - all while during a time when it matters least.

There is legitimately no good reason to rank other than the hopes of a title in TBC.
