LFG to Carry Me?

January 17, 2010


Today I’m going to talk about the flaws with the new LFG system Blizzard implemented. Thanks to Moonmystic for the idea. I know we’ve all had great successes with the LFG system, particularily if your a tank or healer. But there are those times when things just don’t seem to work out with the system. Getting paired with people with 2k less gearscore, or everybody a DPS but people with terrible gear queing as tank just to get into an instance faster but not tanking.

We’ve all seen it. One way I thought of to make the system work, was have the system itself check your gear beforehand and scale the instance to your gear. I don’t mean make all heroics a cakewalk for people in bad gear, but scale them accordingly. If your group is all in ICC 10/25 gear, make it a bit harder! Scale it up so we don’t have to just sleep our way through it! And if your group is in the lower gear category, scale the health and hits of the boss down a little bit until they get better gear. In the end, both parties would be happy. Geared people would get a challenge, while undergeared people would still get their heroics. Just a thought though.

Tell me what you think of the idea.

Achievement Runs

January 16, 2010

Has anybody noticed that nobody is doing heroic achievements anymore? Blizzard streamlined the system with heroic nerfs and player buffs, yet people still don’t want one of the coolest mounts in the game.

I just got twelve heroic achievements yesterday with a dedicated group and only need four more. It just doesn’t make sense to me. If it were up to me, I’d just make everybody need all the heroic achievements to be able to start raiding, so that you know they know what they’re doing. Just my two pence though. 🙂
