What if Blizzard sneaks in sharding/layering at

yes but how does farming lotus etc translate to a damaged economy ?

Doesn’t matter. World PvP is terrible to have anyway.

A buyer’s market is better than a cornered seller’s market. Not a negative against layering.

Still no confirmed instances of this happening on Classic.

Fear-mongering will get you nowhere.

you - doomsday prediction based on fantasy

me - what are the problems going to be ?

you - the doomsday prediction.

LOL, just give an answer and have a discussion, enough theory bullsh*it and conjecture.

Lets see - more lotus than a single realm is supposed to generate?

World pvp does not matter to you means nothing. To others it does.

Doesnt matter. The world is only supposed to generate so many resources. Anything that impacts that is a negative.

As for your last two - the entire point of this thread the potential impact of using layering or sharding beyond phase 1.

Which makes those arguments very valid

I don’t care? PvP is garbage, and anything that may make people not do it is a positive overall.

No it isn’t. Anything that lowers AH prices is a positive.

No it doesn’t. Proof, or your points are baseless.

The person asked what the potential negatives were of using them outside phase 1.

I answered the question.

You pretended somehow the stipulation of phase 1 still existed.

But go ahead and continue to be oblivious.

Just because it doesnt impact you does not mean its not an impact.

Doesnt necessarily lower the the price. People could horde them and sell during shortages.

And the entire point of this thread is the impact that post phase 1 could have.

You dont like it. Too bad.

I will say this to you about layering:

Really ?, because you initially answered a question posed by someone else to someone else and then decided to spout your doomsday conspiracy anti-layering bullsh*t.

I simply asked for an explaination of your misguided beliefs so a conversation could be had, you instead chose to try and deflect and avoid.

Again, I welcome you to elaborate on your conjecture and have a discussion based in reality.

I don’t see why they would, it would be counterproductive. The kind of gameplay that facilitates is already served in the live game.

I don’t have a problem with layering in and of itself, especially if it’s only temporary. I do think it defeats the purpose of large-scale world PvP and competing for world bosses. To that end, it would be such a potentially significant departure from the vanilla experience that it might indeed be a deal breaker for me. Depends on how aggressively it’s set I guess.

I accept layering for a few weeks. That was the promise made. Any use outside that is a violation.

Im not deflecting. I was asked the negatives of post phase 1 layering. I answered.

You said layering was not being used post phase 1.

I can find no record of layering being promised to be removed in “weeks”. I have on the otherhand seen dev posts on it being removed by the start of Phase 2.

or are we now going down the road of phase 1 will only last a few weeks ?

The op literally states using it during aq opening

Listen to the video, where they state that they will START that work ( removing layering ) in the first few weeks, so that it’s removed entirely BY phase 2 ( when we get the first world bosses etc ).

People being people have misunderstood that as a promise to completely remove layering in the first weeks.

It’s not hard, watch the video and listen with an open mind, it’s even bookmarked at the relevant point so it takes about 30 seconds to understand it.

No i’m not quitting, and I don’t care about sharding/Layering.

Layering itself is the dealbreaker for me. I’m holding out for a miracle before launch and hanging around the forums until then, but I’ve already accepted I probably won’t be playing Classic ever again.

They didn’t actually say they wouldn’t which is a touch concerning but I guess it depends on just how populated servers are going to be past phase 2.

They already did. Theyre were videos of a persons party disappearing before their very eyes.

I wish I had the kind of brain that can dedicate effort to thinking up scenarios wherein I can prematurely accuse a video game maker of lying to me.

I’d write books and be a millionaire.

You’re arguing against someone who likes layering, that should tell you what kind of player they are.
