Q u o t e: i work full time and play ... and have had at least 5 fully geared characters this ladder.
Credit card gang bang'd... And even if only by trade, you got your hands on duped runes more easily that you should have if no one was shopping pay-sites...
If no rune was shopable everyone of you, so proud of beeing able to "succeed" a 6 month ladder would be desperatly in need of 18 more months to hardly score 3 additionnal high runes....
Q u o t e:
if you actually go and look at the poll results it is plain to see that 1026 of the 1503 people who voted want 6 month resets, while the rest of you rage blizzard because you cant seem to understand why they cant hear you over the ROAR of the majority.
What is the majority worth anyway?
Join a pvm baal run 1 hammer bot, 1 to 4 human players -> all high runed
Find a op baalrun with 8 player legitimately TP'd to baal -> high runed even more
Check a duel game OMG 6 high runes per character, with people switching from full geared smite to javazone to eni drood...
The majority of people you have to compete with on ladder is shopping.
Do you mean, then, that we have to all start shopping according to the majority's behavior? That blizzard should introduce a pay-for-upgrade-account with a npc selling high rune unlocked in pandemonium?
It's no surprise that people that get high content with a credit card easily get bored of their "collector" stuff ? That they don't even feel the need to play it and that only a ladder reset can wash away their online sins?
They will fail again anyway, some will shop on day 1 some others will wait that their female caster is stuck in hell and can't hope to get a convi friend to help them so will turn to infinity. In the end the ladder will just allways be the same junk players resorting to devious means to achieve their will of "perfect" with ill-goten currency.
But why not? Let's unlock runes for all as the majority is ROARing for them to drop free. After baal is dead hell mode, Nilhatak redeems himself of offers us high runes he took from the brothers while they afk'd peeing...
