I actually don’t mind Crowd Control (CC). Now with the immunities and the renown ability to give you a short immunity, things are not so bad. However …..
Whoever in the hell thought any CC, not just stagger, should last 9 seconds, should be taken outside and shot in the head. Alright, that’s a little harsh. Offer him/her a cigarette first. Then deny them that by saying it’s bad for their health. Then shoot them in the damn face.
To be staggered and then disabled and then silenced is too much to ask of any healer. It’s one thing to be out DPS’d against my HPS, it’s entirely another to sit there for 12 seconds to watch my WB die.
“I need a heal!”
“Sorry guys, a Chosen came within 15 feet.”
– Reduce the amount of seconds.
– Combine Stagger, Disable and Silence in the same category.
I seem remember the very first nerf in this game in October of 2008. It was the Iron Breaker knockdown. It used to be 5 seconds, now it is 3. We went from 5 seconds to 3. Repeat: People felt 5 seconds was way too long. 5 seconds. Five seconds.
Now, let’s go ahead and think about 9 seconds. Now find the Mythic employee and shoot him in the face. I think that would be an excellent podcast. If those even exist anymore.
