    So they're saying that having a clear end goal considering gear, you know, getting your set, feeling good about getting your bis, is bad because then you don't have anything to work towards anymore? Wtf is this reasoning? NOT having this end goal makes every single piece of gear meaningless, as you're just gonna replace it with something minorly better. You removed all the satisfaction from getting gear! It felt GOOD to finish gearing your character.
    They're so disconnected from the reasons why people play, or played wow it's mind boggling.

    Bring back vendors please !! no one cares when they get gear now because it will just be replaced by a 5 ilvl piece in 3 days time. there is no reward or pride in the gear we get. We dont get to window shop for gear and plan our gearing path. 0 choice 0 fun

    This mindset of "the game was never actually good and we've been fixing it" is nonsense. You had a good formula. There's a reason this game had millions of subs at one point and there's a reason all your videos get downvote bombed now. You're attempting things that aren't broken and you're the one's who end up breaking them.
    The pure arrogance is astounding.

    You guys should do a Q&A only focusing on classes/specs and their design. Weird that it's basically never adressed.

    If we know straight up that we're never gonna ever stop gearing, thats not fun. we need to actually RECIEVE that feeling of accomplishment for a bit before we go back to gearing. nobody wants a non stop gear train

    I have played World of Warcraft since launch. I played Battle for Azeroth since it was released. Ever since the implementation of Warfronts and the quest you get them on a semi weekly basis I've been trying to collect the full epic plate set. Now, I have 3 plate users doing that quest every time it pops up. Every. Single. Time. Since the release of BfA. And I'm still missing the helmet, the chestpiece and the shoulders. Let that just sink in. Month after month of repeated warfront runs. Just to try to collect a transmog set. A single transmog set. Something that could easily be solved with a vendor, if the bloody quest provided a token that you could then redeem for a piece of the set you wanted. How hard would that be to implement?

    The game has turned into World of Diablo. Oversimplified toolkits and unending RNG. Wish the game would go back to MOP or previous expansions, but that's clearly not going to happen.

    I can’t believe the most hyped thing for me is hide chest feature.

    Give us PvP vendors already and also fix our classes we've been waiting for so long

    This is so depressing. The game is never going to be great again. They are so concerned with trying to make everyone happy that ultimately no one is. Except the super diehards that will play until death or the servers shutdown.
    Ion knows what has went wrong with WoW. The problem Blizzard has is if they make the necessary changes to get the game back to the Vanilla/BC/Mid Wrath design philosophy they risk alienating players that like the way things are now with no guarantees that the millions that have left over the years will come back.

    Ion's son: Dad I really don't like water
    Ion: Well according to the data you do it multiple times a day, by my metrics you must be doing that because you find it fun enough to keep doing it.
