Blizzard to WoW lovers:

I will simply link to all the great blog posts that cover Blizzard's latest attempt to console their players of World of Warcraft that they can fix their end game. Blizzard is proclaiming they have great stuff in store once they copy Warhammer's open PVP scheme. I am sure it will be only 2 years away in some sort of add on, but ESPN lovers can only hope. I doctored the screenshot above, I admit it. I have l33t photoshop skills.

You can read a good dissection of this post over on:

Hardcore Casual
Waaagh
Wizards and Wenches

As for me, I like to sum things up with video, so I will sum up WoW PVP with this interesting albeit disturbing look at "the sport". So touching, so moving...I almost was brought to tears.

I totally agree with the first article, Blizzard just steals stuff from others and never ever acknowledges that or honours the competition, and implements things in its own games when it worked for other companies which had the genius and balls to innovate and test stuff (they say "polish" when it's actually "theft").

That plus obvious extreme greed: I don't like Blizzard's attitude and I am not playing their games anymore

Ok after reading that thread and those blogs i have come to this conclusion. Blizzard had PvP set Pre-BC matchs lasted 100x longer then they do now, everyone wasn't running around decked out in full PvP gear within weeks of hitting the level cap. Since the release of TBC PvP has been complete and utter crap, i use to PvP because it was fun now its just boring.

Right, and WAR never stole ANY ideas from Blizzard. Hmmm, that UI setup looks familiar....

Yeah. Like the UI is the only thing that matters, Jimboa. There is no pending patent on User Interfaces - besides, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. The only problem with the math in that phrase pertaining to your stupid ass is that Blizzard's WoW is evidently broken and WAR's RvR system (revamped from DAoC) isn't just the wrench, but the entire toolbox.

Nerdrage happens. More often in PuGs. WAR will make plenty of nerdrage, yes. But at least it stops morons from twinking. That top rate gear will let your mow people down but only for so long. The first AV was great, before the server-swapping method was in. I hardly got to experience the big ones. Burning Crusade PvP was just the 10-19 bracket all over again. Those who have no lives are ridiculously over-powered. At least in WAR it makes you think.
