Twitch star Asmongold claimed that WoW Dragonflight should change the expansion’s planned Group Loot system in favor of Master Loot ahead of its highly anticipated release.
WoW Dragonflight finally has a release date and is scheduled to hit live servers on November 28.
Along with the release date came some news about the expansion’s new raid and how the looting system will work at launch.
Star broadcaster Asmongold took to Twitch to try out the loot system and how it completely misses the mark for dedicated WoW players.
WoW Dragonflight arrives on November 28.
Asmongold Explodes WoW Dragonflight’s Group Loot System
Blizzard revealed the release date and content schedule for the expansion on September 29. Asmon responded live to the news on his Twitch channel, rejecting the developer’s decision to launch the expansion only with Group Loot for the new Vault of the Incarnates attack.
Group Loot allows players to roll for items dropped into the instance from the Need, Greed, or Disenchant options. Asmongold explained why Master Loot, the system that allows one player to hand out the drops on their own initiative, would be much better.
“I think you should let groups decide what they want to do. I think you should have Group Loot, Master Loot and Personal Loot. It’s better for the game to let more people have options.”
He continued: “Stop balancing for ‘poo-sockers’, stop designing the game in a way that when they finish the game, they stop. That’s just not true.”
The OTK streamer further gave an example that WoW doesn’t get boring after you’ve completely mapped out your character. He explained that he had eight different level 80 characters that he played “all the time” during Wrath of the Lich King so that he could play “all the time.”
While Asmongold will still be playing the expansion at launch, it could certainly hold their attention longer if they make some changes to the looting system.
