    Default PvP imbalances in the early stages of a games life.

    This seems all too familiar. The overpowered classes and QQ, that is. I just wanted to post some links of videos I enjoyed watching. Sorry if this breaks any rules.

    Remember Vanilla WoW? Well, it was perfectly balanced.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGBnjELkgok - Pat the Warrior. (Destroys everyone with gear and an overpowered class at the time.

    http://warcraftmovies.com/movieview.php?id=27354 - Grim the Rogue. (Destroys everyone with gear and an overpowered class at the time.)

    http://warcraftmovies.com/movieview.php?id=26540 - Mute the Rogue and others. (Talks about how overpowered Rogues were in Vanilla and how unfair it was.)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5d-Gvx6-FI - Unbreakable the Shaman. (One shotting people with Windfury crits.)


    Some of these players, or all, may be good, but it still shows how completely unbalanced WoW was in Vanilla. Although there are still imbalances in Cataclysm, it's much much better off than it was. Just give it time.

    You can troll me now. :\


    Edit: This is in the wrong section I believe, sorry.

    Imbalances are present at the start of every single MMORPG. Everyone knows it, even if they are complaining. I've played in games that literally had I-win buttons...far, far worse than Rift will ever be.

    Everyone also knows that even older and mature games have plenty of imbalances. Balancing a game isn't easy. It's like walking a tightrope with forces tugging at you from all angles.

    People just like to complain and voice their grievances.

    There has to be fotm and nerf's and buffs, these things being whined about is half the fun of playing mmo's.

    I've put a couple threads up about this since the game started with pics of proof like ZOMG OP CLERICS.

    Nobody cares and they just level to 50.... until they roll an alt and you get to spank them all over again.

    i actually think trion have started down the right path with adjust skills so they perform differently in pvp and pve (ie pyro). it will take them awhile to adjust to this new method but i think something that could be roughly considered balance may result in the long term.
    So long rift, may your potential someday be realised
