Because not enough people have played Defiance for them to get that reference/analogy.
Destiny's problems have nothing to do with it being on a console. If this exact game were released as a PC exclusive, all of its problems with gameplay, story, and end game content would be identical.
The highest levels of PvE and PvP content in WoW are more difficult than they've ever been. Heroic Paragons and Heroic Blackfuse are some of the most difficult raid encounters ever released (excepting M'uru or pre-nerf C'thun, the latter of which was mathematically proven to be impossible to kill). Accessible on the low end != easy on the top end. The difficulty is there for those who seek it.
QWTF was the originator of Birthday Mode. From the TF 2.8 QWSERVER.TXT file:
"localinfo birthday on"
"localinfo bd on"
Turn ON Birthday Mode.
This was a hidden mode of TF coded in for TF's first birthday.
It changes a lot of the death messages, sounds, models, etc.
That's not the end of the argument. That's the beginning. Why are they choosing not to participate? Can they be encouraged to participate? Will that net a positive result? (It seems likely that it would. More varied input and points of view would likely make a site like Wikipedia better).
> Needs more random CAPITALIZATION to make A POINT, though.
No need for the strawman. Random pointless capitalization knows no political affiliation.
All it took for them to do this was a half dozen articles about how the entire store is infested with scams and fake apps. This is something they should have done a year and a half ago.
As a matter of fact, you live in a country where a large percentage of the population still thinks some invisble man in the sky has created the entire Uinverse
So do you.
The PS3's customers all bought one already over the past 8 years.
I honestly have no idea what you mean by "Nintendo-like", by the way.
They also said Hearthstone was not going to be related to Warcraft/Starcraft/Diablo..
This never happened. Hearthstone was a Warcraft property since its inception. When they were internally testing it they used the WoW TCG card art for the cards. They had a whole presentation about its development process at the last Blizzcon where they talked about this. It was announced at PAX a few years ago as a complete and utter surprise with pretty much zero leaks about it beforehand, and at that announcement it was completely Warcraft themed and branded.
I specifically used the term "intellectual property" to convey the fact that it would not be within the Warcraft, StarCraft, Diablo, or even Rock'n'Roll Racing or Lost Vikings universes. It's a pretty standard terminology for people to use when discussing fictional universes or properties that span multiple media. I didn't invent the term, I just use it. It's a useful shorthand.
I haven't played arena in over a year. I can't really comment on its current state, nor its state in WoD. Last time I played it was dominated by casters. Warlock/mage/moonkin were some of the strongest classes. Warriors were complaining they were underpowered (but still had some of the highest class representation). But this is something that shifts with every content patch as they try to rebalance and as scaling changes, which has been the case ever since arenas were introduced. Unless you're literally competing for Rank 1 Gladiator, improving your play and your teamwork will have a much bigger impact on your success than rerolling a different class.
The basic primary gameplay is still the same. Many class's DPS rotations are actually not even changing significantly.
The changes include things like the removal of hit rating and making all attacks (generally) always land, not allowing flight in the new zone at all, even at max level, and designing the zones in such a way that this does not become a huge inconvenience, but also including things like jump puzzles and making use of vertical space in a way that wouldn't work if they allowed flying (but still designing the areas artistically such that flying could be added later with the flip of a switch). They've also removed systems like Reforging (which allowed you to transfer some of one undesired secondary stat into another more desired one), removed profession-specific stat bonuses completely (e.g. ring-only enchants for enchanters, and have made engineering toys available to all players but reduced their power), completely rethought stat customization systems like enchanting and gemming (enchants are now limited to a few slots, but give a massive amount of secondary stats, and you can choose any secondary stat in each of those slots rather than selecting from a limited number of stats per slot. Gem sockets are now randomly assigned to gear as a low chance "bonus roll" rather than being static, and are more powerful, and do not provide "primary" (AGI/STR/INT) stats).
All armor in the cloth/leather/mail/plate slots now automatically adjust between those primary stats based on your spec. So a paladin can use the same armor to heal, tank, or DPS. Neck/cloak/weapon/ring/trinket do not do this, and are still spec specific. There is only one tank-only stat (bonus armor) and one healer-only stat (spirit) and those stats only appear on those spec-specific accessory slots I mentioned. Set bonuses also automatically convert to match your current spec (so the same Tier 17 armor can be used to tank/heal/DPS for a paladin as I mentioned before, rather than having to gather 3 copies of the set).
A lot of these loot changes are based around the idea of being able to loot an item and immediately equip it instead of having to wait until after the raid and going back to town and going through the process of figuring out your new hit cap and completely regemming, reforging, and re-enchanting all of your gear.
Again, if your problem was with the basic combat, the changes probably aren't going to make you happy, They're mostly systems changes and stat customization changes.
