Post-Patch Blues & Lrn2play
Along with everyone else, I suspect, we’re still seeing major patch problems on our realm. Last night, in BWL just after killing Broodlord, we were all disconnected from the server…and couldn’t get back in on our mains. Alts were fine, but all instances were down and our mains couldn’t connect. BGs have been laggy to the point of being unplayable, with common problems like not being able to mount/dismount, etc. I have a collection of BoE loot that I’d like to put in the AH, but without Auctioneer I’m not sure how to price it. Addons are causing major problems.
Which brings us to the subject of why we were in BWL last night rather than Naxx…
How many guilds out there are realising just how dependent you are on addons? We all know how difficult it is without Decursive, but the addons that are working, like CT RaidAssist, are still causing major problems. Error messages constantly, half the raid can’t see the raid warnings, people lagging and DC’ing. And that annoying click sound (which there is a script to disable) and split-second lag (which there isn’t). I think half our healers are ready to quit because of the complaints about healing, and the mages are getting a bit snippy.
Which is why we were doing BWL, which we’ve had on farm status for ages, rather than Naxx, because we need the post-patch practice. And we wiped, over and over again. We wiped on Razorgore. We wiped on Vael, on Firemaw, and finally called it quits on Chromaggus. This is not something to be proud of.
What has your experience been like? Go ahead, tell me that you’re all so l33t that you’re sailing through Naxx with no noticeable change. :(
The high point of my weekend, amidst the wipes and the laggy BGs where everything seemed to be epixxed-out Horde premades, was being one-shotted by a Horde player called Uglystick. As in “You’ve been beaten by…” Best. Name. Ever.
