Too many people in here posting as if they were around for vanilla so if you want your argument validated as how things used to work, post on a vanilla character. I mean how many of us are old farts? Go look at this title on my character. OG PvP system. This is a day one character when the game launched.
So let’s talk about how things used to work. Melee didn’t stand a chance with lag. It was a nightmare. You’d be on top of someone and not able to hit them. It was a time when warriors and rogues were screwed. You’d open with a cheapshot and they’d appear somewhere else and you’d miss time to build cps having to relocate them. You’d be behind someone trying to ambush and couldn’t. Then they’d spot you in stealth and do an aoe and get you out. It was a hilarious time.
Especially the ambush. Mostly trying to finish someone off but you couldn’t because you didn’t know where to be was comical. You’d have to burn sprint just to find the hit box.
Rogues could abuse the LIFE out of lag. We could take all our gear off, use sprint, and bleed kite warriors without getting hit. Circling a warrior like a maniac and then getting out of range wasn’t difficult. A lot of rogues stuck to the bleed kite method of dealing with geared warriors. If they went into berz stance, obviously you got in close to avoid intercept. There was NOTHING warriors could do but get chipped away at. Restealthing was a breeze. By the time they were at 20% hp you could just tank them in evasion and they couldn’t overpower enough to remotely do enough damage to you.
Those days it was needed. Leeway may still be needed to be honest. But it should be more intelligent. If someone is pinging over 150, they should have leeway applied to them so other players can hit them. Anything under I doubt you’d need leeway. Both players with good pings and one is a hunter, lmfao he’s food.
Latency has changed. If you aren’t on some high speed connection, that’s a you problem. Trying to cater to bad internet players by altering the entire game is ridiculous. BUT, we are talking about Blizzard here lol.
Hunters, just reroll. Classic needs more tanks.
