Sorry for my long vent, but I just wanted to post this about the game I used to love to play with my friends year in, year out. But I’ve never felt so dissapointed in a game where PvP is part of it,
From sitting in LFG for 4 hours each day, play 2 matches, and wait 4 hours again on my mistweaver. I tried doing FoTM, got 2k on rogue instantly, didn’t have fun at all, just wanted to play what I want. Decided to go warrior (kyrian first) with my friends. One was a resto sham and the other was a mistweaver.
As you can imagine, they weren’t having the best time of their life in the expansion. But we held on, got the conquest gear and could win an amount of games.
Then the memes came out, the rogue one shots, the convoke crits, we thought well the gear would level it out right? Nope, after 8 weeks and no fixes, my 2 arena friends decided to quit the game…
So here I was, again, sitting in LFG on my warrior that had to be Venthyr to get accepted. But don’t like the way it plays. But that aside.
I tried leveling an alt healer, a Hpal because mistweaver was of course nowhere to be found (yes they can get 2k but they will have a partner with 100x glad exp), and unfortunately I dont have friends like that.
Then, another friend of mine tried to come back and wanted to play resto shaman, he had to work hard during the covid and shadowland launch so he extended his return and got back 2-3 weeks ago. We grinded, for hours, matches after matches, he started with item level 158 and is around 205 as we speak.
But… Today, we just gave up. We faced so many rogues that just one shot with dagger in the dark. Don’t try to defend that abilitiy, please, yes you can mount it, but for how long and then he will just get the buff through walls so you still have no idea where he is? You pre interven, sometimes gets yourself killed… Don’t go that route, then we faced retri and healer a lot, we won most games after we just kited for minutes each game because of the wings and the wings proc and seraphim and random 20k crit even through duel? is that ability bugged? And people are defending in trade chat when you ask why that ability is not being taken care of?
After losing to so many rogues , me as a warrior, and my friend hit a dead end at 1780 rating, I just wanted to bring him to rival to get him his last pieces of upgrade and gear on the journey. But then on our last game on 1797… This happened:
We faced a ret, and a DH.
The ret insta bubbled my stormbolt on his wing, the DH did AoE stun on my friend and they both just press ONE ability and he died instantly, nothing we couldve done, nothing.
Im afraid that at this point I can say I really tried to have fun and my expectations maybe were a bit too high for Shadowlands… I tried, even after 9.0.5 I was hoping they would show some better interest in their PvP section…
But after seeing warrior buffs for no reason, and rogue problem not solved (its the legendary not the class) convoke still around, and people just press 1 button to which are uncounterable if you are not a paladin. I’m out, we’re out, all my friends are out. We just cant have fun after working all day to do some arenas in WoW anymore if you arent some peepo that can just sit at home all day gearing up every FoTM class.
Take a alook at the screen shot and see for yourself.
