Jov sez: I don’t care about the ColiseumJuly 14, 2009
Okay, so, yeah… I don’t.
I’ve done all the various Ring of Blood type arena fights on all my characters. Nagrand? Check. Grizzly Hills? Check check. Zul’Drak? Check check CHECK.
Do you hear that, Blizzard? I’ve done them! I’ve even done the others… BRD? Been there, SO over that. BRD for the Tier .5 questchain? UGH, yes, multiple times. Magister’s Terrace? I could do that place in my sleep.
I’ve even done ACTUAL arena. I’ve done PVP against players both smarter than your AI and… not. And you know what? I stopped! I don’t do it anymore! I never did it more than I NEEDED to!
I’ve done all this stuff. Everyone reading has done all this stuff.
“This stuff” is the stuff I hate most about the game.
I’m not talking so much about recycling a concept over and over again. When Blizz finds something that works, they’ve always pretty much reused it. When something is popular, it would be pretty stupid to just drop it like a hot rock.
But, I don’t care, and it’s my blog so I’ll get up and rant if I want to. I don’t want to have our next “progression” content be repeatedly farming the arena boss for a few months. I don’t like arena fights. I don’t like arena PVP, I don’t like arena PVE.
I want Old Gods, and pretty rooms, and actually running around from place to place. Hell, I would prefer to be back in Hyjal and dealing with it’s exciting waves of dynamic trash encounters.
And what about Arthas? Remember the guy you named the expansion after? It’s been over 6 months, you’re already talking about wanting to get the NEXT expansion out in 09 (that’s this year) and except for a few cameo appearances, he’s been locked up safe and sound in Icecrown.
And why not? All the people who oppose him are having a jousting fair party thing in the BFE corner of nowhere (when they’re not poking around, messing with the Titans) and are totally keeping themselves busy AND out of his hair.
Screw faction changes, I’m all for switching allegiance to the smart guy.
