This will be an extremely short post, for me at least. I also put it under the header of humor because I think it has to be one of the funniest things I have heard from blizzard all expansion long.
I saw a question and answer highlighted on the front of MMOC regarding the extremely long queue times for the LFR recently. After reading it my mind was blown. I had to read it a second time to make sure I did not misread it.
Someone asked on twitter
"time in queue 1h 30min.. this isn't very fun gameplay"
For this warcraftdevs had a two part answer
(1) We have a fix in the works that should improve LFR queue times
(2) We’re currently giving too much weight to class diversity in forming groups
I found this funny partly because they have a "fix in the works" because it should have never been like this to begin with and should not need a fix. But the real reason this had me laughing was the second reason they gave, which proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that blizzard lies.
Two weeks ago I queued up for the BFR wings on my horde hunter, I get into a group and it has 15 hunters in it. You are aware there are only 18 damage dealer spaces to begin with right?
Last week, horde hunter again, BRF again, 12 hunters in the group.
Monday before reset, wanted to get the first two bosses on my druid, because I only tanked from the 3rd on, so I queue up as a healer for the first HFC. Guess how many druid healers we had? 5 druid healers. Let me give you a reminder how many healers LFR uses, it uses 5.
So I have to say "(2) We’re currently giving too much weight to class diversity in forming groups" has to be both the most blatant lie blizzard has told us all expansion and probably the funniest one too.
If having 5 out of 5 healers being a druid and 15 out of 18 damage dealers being a hunter is diversity in the eyes of the people that work at blizzard, I now completely understand why they are having all the problems they are.
