So earlier today I was farming winterfall e’ko and i get the first tag on High Chief of Winterfall. Somehow, a mage who arcane explosioned gets the tag even though I SEE PHYSICALLY that my damage hits the boss first. Somehow, he gets the tag. Truly annoying because I know 100% with absolute certainty that i damaged the boss first but due to this retarded spell batching mechanic, the mage gets the tag.
How about when I’m killing elite mobs in Winterspring for E’ko and I eviscerate the giants at low health, killing the giant, and somehow its melee attack goes off as well and kills me at the same time.
It’s so damn annoying where situations arise where you are the clear winner and the game just decides “nope, you lose” due to some absolutely stupid game mechanic designed to make the player base mad. I have countless examples of this being a problem in classic. Too many to write down. It can’t be that hard to code their game to say
If a player does damage to a mob first, they get the tag.
If a player casts an ability first, it goes off first.
If a player does any action before another player, or before another mob, that action goes first.
I know this rant is useless and blizzard takes feedback and criticism about as seriously as a billionaire taking financial advice from someone homeless but it’s true. I’m at my limit with this game. Remove spell batching. It’s cancer.
