    Anything good for us in this patch ? I can't seem to find anything related to us in wowhead article.

    Two things that, "kind of", relate to pure f2p are new arena to skirmish in and easier way to get to caverns of time with new portal (if we can use that portal anyway...)

    I'll prefer to wait the PTR next week to see what "unreferenced change" is made for F2P (because most of the time, the most influent changes for F2P are not referenced in the patch notes :/)

    As far as i can read in the ptr path note :
    - some changes for guardian druid
    - some changes around the [barbed shot] of the BM hunt

    Nothing impacting lvl20 except that for now ...
    Tests have to be done on the PTR ;)

    Probably not, but I'll hop the PTR to check on the usual things. Item level changes, enchant nerfs (pleasepleaseplease crusader nerf) brewfest trinkets, etc.

    Not being able to cast moonfire in bear form anymore kinda hurts but otherwise, this looks like a pretty "meh" patch for F2P

    I have nothing to base this on other than hope but I am hoping there will be more unique items returning to the game sourced from rare mobs, its entirely possible if we just believe

    What will happen to F2P if they decide to make the "level squish" shit? I see a lot of ppl asking for it in the forums/youtube/other media.

    Lol they seperated the qs with no patch notes.

    Predict they will either let crates proc epic for levellers. Or seperate qs by ilvl

    They hemorrage subs and the patch looked boring if you pay for the game.

    They've done iLevel/stat squishes before a few times.

    Probably the same deal. They tend to do it every so often to regulate numbers from being "too large".

    As far as if they will actually squish levels, so that future expansions don't take things to like 130,150,etc?

    Probably a good idea. In my opinion, they should have gone up slower with levels. No more than 5 an expac, and should have spread out time between expacs. Sprinkled in content, instead of raining it in then having people be bored with it.

    Whats going to happen with the 20-29 level bracket If they squish the levels, I mean. Maybe we`ll have WSG at level 5 or 10 and Starter Edition will be squished too to 10? Or no F2P at all? :p

    It makes me wonder. Probably take a lot longer to level, but have more milestones quicker.

    It entirely depends what they squish it to. Within squishing the level cap to 100, I don't see much difference. Or even to 85...It just depends on how they implement it, and if they take a focus on the lower levels and leveling experience while they do it. If they do, then it should be no big deal, and not really seem that big to us. If they don't, and they mostly focus on how it effects end game (Which they usually do and prioritize)? It could be a mess for a few patches to even it.

    We talked about it somewhere here a little while ago. One of the options they were tossing around was just to halve everything, and I asked what people thought about 19 and what that meant, I think. Basically what you're saying... they'd be level 10.

    From blizz'z standpoint, it wouldn't affect anything. F2play still play for free and get to join battlegrounds, just not at max-bracket level anymore. Doubt blizz cares about that or any of us regarding that squish, TBH.

    It sounds like Blizz love F2P move than the filthy 29s, who pay to play :p Their bracket is dead now, but F2P are free to play and enjoy killing levelers. I like Blizz for the first time in my life! Or maybe Activision is behind this. Blizz suck! Blizz invented the stupid 20-24 and 20-29 brackets with Pay-to-Win mongrels. Activision now gives some freedom to F2Ps. ACTIVISION AKBAR!

    8.2 could be a significant patch. I would like to see more baseline abilities. Some dps specs could use a burst buff, some could use a buff to main abilities. Talents could be improved. The current pvp meta just isn't good in any way but blizzard wouldn't surprise me if they somehow made it worse. They seem to want this expansion to go down as the worst pvp expansion.

    Just like every expansion some new game is going to kill WoW, and every feature sucks.

    I remember during BC people spent a lot of it complaining about flying mounts ruining world PVP, saying how the game was trash now, and it wouldn't last. People now look back at BC as one of the best expansions.

    I remember in WoTLK people saying the game was made way too easy (Despite the raid content being the hardest yet after the first tier), the game wouldn't last, and heirlooms ruined the game. Now a lot of people look back it as one of the best periods of the game.

    Each expansion "They are doing everything to keep from losing subs, and pull people back in. WoW is dying".


    It gets old.

    Not everyone. The "everyone" you know is not near the top, skill wise. Top pvp players all agree Legion was far better than bfa. Wod was better than bfa and wod was a landfill expansion full of trash fotm rerollers in every bracket rated or non rated, but it was still a better meta. Numbers were better. BFA 100% worst pvp expansion.

    They literally say this each expansion, too.
    And point out how bad the players in the current expansion are.

    Spend five minuets on AJ and you'll see this each expansion, too.

    And FOTM rerollers?

    Also, every expansion.

    Legion was a godly pvp expansion and only good players know. All good players were busy Qing in Legion. Bad players always find reasons to complain. Bad players are who you're referring to who make those same claims every time. Maybe you should visit arena forums or try Qing rated. It isn't dying bc its already dead. Blizzard can however bring it back to life if they make good changes.
