Sometimes, I feel sorry for Blizzard …

Six months ago:

Dear Blue,

Congratulations, Blizzard.  You’ve done what none of your competitors have managed to do, and ruined the endgame with your bull-nosed determination to cater to the casuals.  Where are the rep grinds?  The  long, wonderfully complex and lore-rich attunement chains?  The rare profession drops that made my tradeskill profitable?  Everyone and their pet Sporebat  has the same recipes that I do — not to mention the same recolored gear and the same meaningless achievements.

I am no longer a unique and special snowflake.

No Love,

Your Fans

Last week:

Dear Blue,

Books of Glyph Mastery …  WTF?!  I’ve been grinding for eight hours and have yet to see a single one!  Why couldn’t you make the new glyphs trainable, so everyone could learn them?  Or even purchasable with tokens, like recipes for Cooking and Jewelcrafting?  I really don’t know what you were thinking with this one, Blizzard.  Have you even looked at the Auction House lately?  Those greedy scribes are ruining the economy.  Keep this up, and we’re going to need a bail out.

And, seriously.  What is with epic crafting patterns and Fragments of Val’ynar only dropping in 25 raids?  Or this pointless grind you call the “Argent Tournament”?  The endgame has become a timesink.

And you still hate casuals.

No Love,

Your Fans

    We’re hard to satisfy all the time, that’s for sure 😛

    You forgot to mention that WoW is no longer the easy simple, stand still and spam 1 button raids that we’ve all come to love. WTF I have to put effort in now? I have to pay attention to my surroundings? How is a bar monkey with no real supposed to retain a place in a top end raiding guild now? And by top end I mean we’ve killed Sartharion at least once after we killed those pesky drakes first, so I’m hardcore leetsauce and I know what I’m talking about.

    Hey maybe you should promote *me* to lead designer since you can’t do it right.

    I would like to point out that the “automatically generate possibly related post” is

    John Travolta & Kelly Preston: “We are heartbroken”

    I don’t know what to think about that.

    That’s … um …

    Mildly disturbing? >.>

    Very true, this post.

    Obviously John Travolta and Kelly Preston play WoW and they feel exactly the same about the Book of Glyph Mastery. They’re heartbroken about the amount of time and effort it’s taking to find one, and the extravagant prices that are being charged for them currently. Because of course, prices will never go down as more and more people obtain them, just like Saronite still costs 100g a stack, and Frostweave.. don’t even get me started there. *snerk*

    Why can’t people just enjoy having the damn game in the first place?

    To quote Yahtzee: “Fans are whiny clinging dipsh*ts who will never be pleased with any concession you make. The sooner you drown out their shrill tremulous voices the happier you’ll be.”
