Useful command mentioned in the video:
Wasn't Draenor pvp scaling really bad? Like it was noticeable when someone had way higher gear than someone who didn't?
I'm a mythic raiding tank and between the damage bonus to tanks in PvP and this scaling nonsense I will be turning off war mode in Shadowlands. If I can't even outgear people so they can't even touch me when I'm doing my world quests why should I bother? That's the only fun thing about it, ignoring gankers and continuing to do your quests. World PvP is a joke anyway, it doesn't need to be "balanced" with these garbage systems.
The scaling they're referring to here isn't the 'everyone is scaled to similar gear' scaling. This is the type of scaling that affects damage and healing in PvP such that the number you see you're dealing/healing to a target in PvP is different to the number they actually receive in the end.
that is why i do not like pvp. cos i spend hours of gameplay everyday and i want to be at least getting the benefit of gear difference but no, way lower ilvl person who doesnt spend hours comes and do the same dmg (even better) because of pvp scaling. yea I still beat them cos I have more game experience and know my class better than them but still. those hours should make a slight difference.... that is not fair.
I've never liked scaling to begin with...
Just bring back PVP power !
This system literally should not exist.
Anyone actually looks at pvp in wow as anything other than a really bad joke?
Big surprise, Blizzard neglects to care about PvP once again. PvP scaling as it exists today needs to be completely removed.
I hate this stupid scaling @#$%, but the discrepancy between a bad geared player and a good one in terms of power is really huge. I think they need to fix that or go with rextroys idea at the end of the vid.
Blizzard can't even hire competent developers for PvP smdh. If your players are finding this ish you should be ashamed as a game company.
Scaling everywhere sucks. We started this expansion at like 200 iLvl and yet here I am at 465 killing the same stupid !@#$ing Rare for WQs and it takes even LONGER to kill them. $%^& you, Blizz
This thing does nothing than convoluting the game.Blizzard fixing problems that are not a problem at all for anyone (resilience, pvp gear), and creating more headache and even more problems.We need new dungeons, raids and zones every 5-6-7 months and be done with it.(we aren't getting new classes or abilities or talents or stats, so why do they add more systems that gives complexity without adding anything to the fun-factor?)
I spent so long grinding sockets in visions for my pvp gear.Now you're telling me I was adding weights? Dang.
Imagine being one of the dedicated people still bothering with corruption/spite fiesta PvP, farming thousands of mementos just to upgrade your entire likely PvP-offset with sockets (after grinding sockets for PvE) just to find out every 25k mementos was basically a downgrade. That is just a massive spit into a face after "fun" vision spam.There should not be ever some "hidden" scaling. Either bring back resilience/PvP power or follow Rextroy's idea so fresh max level people are not "too stomped" (even tho back in my days it was EXPECTED to get stomped by heroic ICC raiders as someone with borean tundra gear)
