BFF Report - Top 5 Most Controversial Games of 2010
2010-12-30 в 15:09
While you guys were out having a good time with the Loot King, I was running all over the MMO-verse keeping up with the latest it had to offer. By proxy, I was also absorbing all the crazy crap that some of these developers do and figured it would be fitting to package it all up nicely into one big fat.. er.. fony report.
p.s. A message from Darnell
regarding Tol Barad
.. he doesn't sound too happy.

How's the Cataclysm been treating you guys so far? The expansion added a ton of new things to do, including new dungeons to run, quests to complete, raid encounters to defeat, items to craft and otherwise acquire. Despite all of those substantially more "important" things, a new secondary profession was added, available to players who have purchased the expansion.
lures players to spend the substantial amount of time grinding out digsites and completing artifacts with promises of odd, quirky and even downright amazing blue and epic quality items. Other secondary professions offer an expected, substantial benefit, such as the valuable food buffs obtained by
, and who doesn't love being able to bandage? But
is a bit different.
Read on for Archaeology information, including lists of all of the rare artifacts, and my own personal impressions of the profession!

Dungeon Finder: Friend, Foe or Fail?
2010-12-28 в 19:11
Recently, a player on the official forums brought forth a strong opinion regarding the use and abuse of the Dungeon Finder. I'll admit, I haven't been using the Dungeon Finder much lately to find groups as I've been solely doing Heroics with my guildmates or premade server groups. Apparently, though, many players are reporting cases of abuse of the system, ending up in groups which are ruled by seemingly tyrannical leaders / groups who call the shots in rude and unfair ways. That is, when they're actually playing. Players are also reporting groups where people will queue up as a majority or tank / healer role, then refuse to actually
play the game
. I'm sorry, but if you're going to sit there and go through the trouble of logging into the game and queueing up for a dungeon, why the hell
How should players deal with this? Is it our responsibility to have to deal with attempting to kick players (which won't always work), or are changes to the Dungeon Finder by Blizzard the answer? Do you think the problem is in the Dungeon Finder's lack of penalty for such players? Would a karma system
work? Read on for a full look at the Dungeon Finder system and learn to
Character Transformation: Thrall, Then and Now
2010-12-28 в 17:29
Blizzard has just posted the first in a series of blogs about the transformations key characters have undergone over the past few years, especially the most recent changes with the Cataclysm. This first blog looks at the orc hero Thrall, former Warchief of the Horde.
We will see more articles in the future about other key characters' transformations, including Garrosh, Anduin Wrynn, and Magni Bronzebeard and possibly others. Check out the full post about Thrall's amazing metamorphosis from noble war hero to shamanistic savior of our kind after the break!

Are Heroics Too Hard? Blizzard Doesn't Think So (And Neither Do I, Hah!)
2010-12-28 в 12:58
As many players hit level 85 and begin to queue for Heroic dungeons, there has been a resounding echo among the users of the official forums and pretty much everywhere else, all preaching a single thought: Heroic dungeons are too damn hard! Many of these players are skipping straight into Heroics as soon as their item level average permits, since (after all) this is the intended "ready" point for the content. But is it too low? Or are the Heroic themselves too difficult?
Today, Blizzard poster Zarhym responded to an angry poster, admitting that Wrath of the Lich King content was actually
and the Heroics are supposed to be as difficult and as much of a test of skill as they now are.
Players were conditioned at the end of Wrath of the Lich King to mow through Heroics at lightning speed. Not only were they too easy to begin with, by the time Dungeon Finder came out players greatly out-geared the majority of these dungeons.
The reality is that it makes sense for Heroics to be a true and necessary stepping stone into raiding. They are more difficult

Ghostcrawler Discusses Upcoming Major Class Changes
2010-12-27 в 23:49
Now that many players are level 85, Blizzard has been receiving a ton of feedback (both positive and negative) regarding their classes, specs and other balancing / playability concerns. They've taken a lot of these concerns, with their own review, and Ghostcrawler has just posted a very inclusive and informative post detailing developer impressions of the current state of the game and various aspects of it, projecting potential and possible changes we'll see in the near future. Definitely worth a read!
We have a lot of players at 85 now doing everything from Heroic dungeons to rated Battlegrounds, and the class design team is starting to prepare our list of items to investigate for our next patch.
Before you dive down into the meat below (not really a pleasant image, that), be advised that we’re still early in the preliminary stages. The patch isn’t coming out tomorrow. I wrote this before the end of the year and other things may have cropped up in the meantime. Just because your class or pet problem isn’t mentioned below doesn
