  1. I will never use Loot Council.
    I will be using a Suicide Kings/Point Hybrid I developed.
    People loved it. I loved it. It was quick, easy, everyone could go for the items they wanted.

    1. I would have loved to have gone a bit more into Suicide Kings, it was an interesting system that I hadn’t heard of – probably not great for a lot of guilds but intriguing nonetheless! Thanks so much for listening Panda!


  2. Loot depends on the situation, doesn’t it? I never used Suicide Kings, but DKP seemed to work great for guilds with a lot of turn over or randoms, and Loot Council was ideal for tight knit groups. I always felt people over complicated loot.

    As for a graphics toggle, I think I’m okay with it. If it brings new players into the fold and old players back, then why wouldn’t I want it? I’m not looking to gate keep – I just want the old game I loved. If people choose to use the new graphics instead of the old ones, then, that’s their loss, not ours, right? It’s perfectly reasonable to expect Blizzard to make Classic as accessible as possible without changing the game play, and graphics are the obvious place to start.
