You’re All Wrong; Where To Really Place The Blame

Mortigan started this and he’s wrong. No, not just that he’s Undead, which is wrong on a whole other level, but that he’s just wrong.

Amber picked up on it and bless her heart, try as she might, she’s wrong too!

Wipe #1
Cause of Wipe: The Tank just sucks.
Person to Blame:  Blizzard. Heirloom gear has spoiled the leveling game where people are supposed to learn their classes, but everyone avoids the instances now. The debacle that passes for gear progression in end-game is such a mess that again everyone avoids the earlier raids and is ill-prepared to tank current content.
Possible Solutions: Remove heirloom gear. Bring back gear progression.

Wipe #2
Cause of Wipe: The Tank dies.
Person to Blame: Blizzard. They nerfed our poor tanks. Probably due to some PvP imbalance which royally screwed tanks over.
Possible Solutions: QQ on the public forums.

Wipe #3
Cause of Wipe: Boss immediately ignores Tank and 1-shots the DPSers.
Person to Blame:  Blizzard. Again the tank nerf screwed them over and they can’t build/maintain threat. Also it’s probably patch/maintenance day and the encounter is bugged.
Possible Solutions:  QQ on the public forums.

Wipe #4
Cause of Wipe: The Healer dies.
Person to Blame:  Blizzard. If a healer aggro’d, the encounter is glitched. Or possibly another version of Wipe #3
Possible Solutions:  QQ on the public forums.

Wipe #5
Cause of Wipe: The adds are killing everyone.
Person to Blame:  Blizzard. Again encounter is bugged and/or tanks can’t maintain aggro because of their nerfs.
Possible Solutions:  QQ on the public forums.

Wipe #6
Cause of Wipe: The DPS is too low, and the boss Enrages.
Person to Blame:  Blizzard. They didn’t make the encounter easy enough to cater to the casuals.
Possible Solutions:  QQ on the public forums.

Wipe #7
Cause of Wipe: The Healer dies, even though you have a rocking Tank.
Person to Blame:  Blizzard. Again similar to Wipe #3 and #4.
Possible Solutions:  QQ on the public forums.

Wipe #8
Cause of Wipe:  People don’t know the fights.
Person to Blame:  Blizzard. Encounters are too easy so everyone feels they don’t have to research up on it OR encounters are so complicated that no one understands it anyway.
Possible Solutions: QQ on the public forums.

So who’s really to blame for all our problems?

  2. Does this mean next time I think to myself “so and so would be a lot better if 25 ToC wasn’t their first darn raid ever” I need to shout “You kids get off my lawn!” on Vent?
    😉

  3. @Candy – Absolutely! 😀

    Going by your post, it seems that the greater WoW community is quite a progressive bunch seeing as how they are all contributing to a “solution.”

  5. Not sure if you were being funny or serious.

    But I have a solution to your wiping problems.. get a better tank?

  6. @Carbon – 😀 This post was totally not serious and not even about making fun of Blizzard. It’s poking fun at people always pointing the finger. 🙂
