What even is retail

Retail is in a terrible state.

That being said, it still holds my attention more than most games, if only for an hour or so at a time.

I think I just have trouble letting go of all the time invested over the years. Sad

I know what you mean. I feel the same way. I'm by no means playing at the level I once was, but I'm still just cruising around randomly doing whatever catches my focus. Currently it's the brawler guild.

I tried the AB-PV(E)P and it was an overall steamroll, but the 1v1 or 1v2+ combat was energetic. The AI actually plays to kill. They're just dumb overall and lose sight of the objectives.

(Must be modeled after us haha, #roadfightswin)

I dont have any other video games that I play besides WoW. I uninstalled Overwatch and Diablo to open up space on my laptop's SSD. So I'm not going to boycott anything, I'm just going to keep doing what I've been doing since 2004; level toons for the hell of it and do random shit in Azeroth.

It's either that or I learn Fortnite to PWN noobs with my 10 and 11 year olds...... ◉_◉

I quit near the end of WotLK and can't even wrap my head around what retail must be like nowadays. Fighting NPCs in Arathi would be a solid candidate for one of Blizzard's April Fool's announcements.

Who would like to play PvP with AI's ? lmao
Just another awful decision to kill even further the game.

I dont think the "comp stomp" is a permanent thing. I remember them unveiling it at Blizzcon and saying it was to "try some things."

It's currently listed as a Brawl.

*Not defending the current state of retail. Just bringing some info to the discussion. *

If it's just a temporary bonus alternate game mode, I don't see the problem. It's just them trying something new. Did they delete PvP Arathi Basin too? If not, then it's just something extra to test out their enemy AI. So it grants honor; that can be a fault. That's a good discussion to have. But claiming it's the death of PvP, or the killing the game?

Look, I get it: We love Vanilla WoW more than BFA. That's why we're gathered here. But let's at least be genuine and be honest with ourselves: is that criticism or is that spite? To me, that sort of mocking rings hollow. It's fine to point out a game's flaws, but it's another thing entirely to get stuck in a game-bashing echo chamber. We're better than that.

I played 3 games last night to see what it was like.

Honestly, it's not bad. The AI is smarter than I expected and they actually put up a fight.

We won every game with 4 or 5 bases though, it's not exactly a steamroll but I don't really see how you could lose.
