A member of the World of Warcraft community has called upon Blizzard to address several issues faced by PvE raiding players. Battle.net user Nuckels has voiced concerns to the Warcraft creators regarding problems with mythic raiding in particular, claiming that PvE players have attempted to call upon Blizzard before to no avail.
Nuckels did include a disclaimer in the post, in that his following post would be a long and negative one, which is nothing new to a gaming community forum. The highlights of the lengthy post are as follows: “We (the hardcore PvE raiding community) have tried communicating with you through direct channels about the current problems within legion PvE with no success, you have ignored problems that we have been pointing out since beta and its time for you to stop ignoring us and start communicating.”
“The core problem is how unrewarding mythic raiding is and how mythic raiders get the short end of the stick time and time again. Why can’t the hardest content in game not be the most lucrative content in game for character progression I ask you? If all that is left is just the joy of the challenge in a game where character progression is the centre something is wrong.”
The post, which can be read in full here, was met with a lot of players agreeing with the complaint,particularly regarding AP (Artifact Power) issues it did raise the question, particularly raised on the thread by user Ruìn, as to whether it was worth the time and effort to attempt to reach Blizzard via a community forum post. ” it would be idealistic and naive to expect anything to come from it. How many topics we had about the stupidity and unfairness of legendaries? NOTHING. AP? TF? Yeah, basically non-issues in comparison.”
The post does raise an important issue however. The hardest tasks in games should surely reap the best rewards, particularly when killing the hardest content in the game is rewarded with little AP. Time will tell whether Blizzard respond, and whether the more challenging aspects of World of Warcraft will offer more to PvE players.
