    Also don't forget if the new thing isn't changed back to the old thing many, many people will quit. Not because I have sampled a significant portion of the game popluace but because I just don't like the new thing.

    And when all those people quit because of the new thing the game will die and you will lose your job and go to H E double hockey sticks when you die.

    I worked so hard to build my toon around the new thing. I ransacked chest after chest after chest to get the new thing. With the new thing, I was able to solo almost every quest and raid.

    Now you nerf the new thing AND the old thing for no good reason.

    BAH!!

    Soon you'll blame the New thing for dungeon alert and lag too.

    Beyond the new thing being over powered it's also destroying the economy. People are cheating and making lots of plats selling the new thing to new players. This will cause the new players to lose money and the rich old players to get richer. It's much more expensive than that other thing and is causing prices in the AH to go up to even more insane prices because the old thing isn't as valuable.

    It also makes all people who use the new thing utterly gimped because their thing isn't as good as the thing that went before. Now they need more things to meet the criteria of the uber elite who play with their things regularly...

    I just don't know why they didn't make the new thing BTC and not very durable so you'd have to do all the adamantium rituals to it?

    Wouldn't it be WAI then?

Luckily, I'm not you... and there are no old adages to give me anything about which to worry. =)

    So I just previewed the new thing at the cost of 1 Turbine point and I don't like it. No sir, not one bit. I hate the old thing too. As a matter of fact I hate everything about the way this thing was introduced and applied to our current thing. I wish they would just cube the entire thing and start all over. Turbine seems to think anything is better than nothing. That's it, I don't feel like talking about this thing anymore. Good day to you suh. I said good day!

    -ve rep for an obvious troll.

    If you are not prepared to read a thing about the new thing and even less about the old thing then you have nothing to say about anything and so must be trolling amd therefore by ochams razor which is another thing I don't understand but often use to prove how right I am you must actually be a troll thing.

    There are many reasons why this new thing will break the game.

    1: The equipment we farmed will have different value now.
    2: The work we did will be easier or harder for subsequent people to do.
    3: It is different.
    4: It is not the same as it was before.
    5: The way it was before is how I want it to remain.
    6: It is new.
    7: I don't like it.

    With all of these factors in mind - and these are just the ones that come to me now, I would like to put forward a petition. Please, please can we stop this new thing now? And in the meantime can I also tell you how qualified I am not to like this new thing. I did that old thing a lot. I was better than anyone in the world at that old thing. I am the master of that old thing. The only master. This is not the reason I dislike this new thing, though. I am the master of this new thing too. Oh no don't get me wrong, I am better at this new thing than any of you, ever, and have been since before I was born. But that old thing was better, and this new thing is bad and wrong.

    Please Devs - take notice of my cries. This new thing is going to make this game into a different game from how it was before. This cannot be allowed to happen. Stop now. You will listen to me, Devs, because we are close personal friends. I have known you all for years. We used to do that old thing together every tuesday lunchtime. One time you said to me, "Slog I will always warn you before I change anything so you can veto it if you don't like it." Well, you didn't. You went behind my back.

    Anyway, I am not complaining. I just want to make it perfectly clear that I am oober, this new thing is bad, and that old thing is the only way that anything should be done.

    This reminded me of a snippet from my favorite show..

    Tom2: "Why Mike, don't you remember that fun thing we did together that was so fun?"
    Mike: "Oh yeah, I remember, that was great <chuckles>"
    Tom1: "Wait, what about that fun thing WE did together that one time?"
    Mike: "...No, I don't remember that..<confused>"

    While you're in the nerfing mood, I demand a nerf of the nerfs that you're about to implement, as well as nerfing all the nerfers by nerfing their nerfbats (you just can't see how terribly, game-breakingly OP those things are from your palacial penthouse cubicle!)

    Not that I am as dramatic as most people about it. It does truly suck that the best epic gear which was damn near impossible to get that many people worked for months on, well stuff that came close to that level of greatness was achievable with a 5 day commitment by people brand new to the game.

    To even things out they should fix the drop rates for the rest of epic content. After all I have been running the desert since it came out on epic and still can not make some of the items from there, yet I have 2 of everything from the new event.

    Is it game breaking...nope, just annoying.

    But what about the original thing? The one that came before the new thing AND the old thing. I'm still uber ninja master of that, but noooooooo all everyone cares about is the new thing and the old thing now. And I'm gimped for using the original thing.

    I believe that we need to watch our things so they do not hold a thing convention and become thingies, because thingies may cause things to do things which would cause other things and make new things, then we would get more nerfed thingies and I like my thing un-thinged and un-nerfed cause I am the only one allowed to make thingies.

    Can we please have Eladrin (or whichever dev is taking his job during plague, snowblowing and child-rearing - his last myDdo statuses) clear up the exact intricacies between the old thing and the new thing? AND... possibly have Fernando chime in on the NEWER THING coming later that will make the old and new thing look like things we never even needed?
