    An amusing complaint leads to a Blue trying to counter The Worst PTR Testing Advice Ever:

    2.3 PTR – Mortick’s bracers NEVER FORGET

    Dont be a RetardedCookie…
    Dont test anything…
    Dont call nothing OP….
    Dont use optimized builds…
    Dont post about itens on forum…

    Remember Blizzard philosophy: Well tested itens for 2 months get removed, items everyone said are bad and noone give a **** will make it out of the PTR.

    DON’T SCREW THE BARBARIAN CLASS AGAIN.
    Tyvalir: I’m surprised and a bit dismayed to see this thread. :/

    The vast majority of players have been great about creating carefully constructed feedback as we test patches, much of which has helped us improve the game. Obviously, we wouldn’t ask for it if we didn’t genuinely want to hear your thoughts.

    Of course, it’s totally fine to express disappointment about an item being removed on the PTR. At the same time, it’s also important to remember that the entire purpose of a PTR is to tune patches so the final version is as balanced as it can be, so it’s quite common for items to be pulled if they’re unbalanced (as Mortick’s Brace was).

    Encouraging people to be deceptive in their play styles or falsify feedback is just plain not helpful. It works against one of the very goals of those who love competing on the Leaderboards: having as balanced a competitive gameplay environment as possible. Feedback about your disappointment in an item being removed, asking for better communication from the CMs (which we always strive to do!), or warning others to temper their expectations on the PTR? Those are all totally fair, if done respectfully.

    The insane hyperbole in the OP’s title is wonderful, and really, it just gets better from there. The short, almost poetic layout, the delightfully QQ tone, and best of all is how he acts like like Barbs were ruinously nerfed by the (admittedly ham-handed) removal of an OP item, when they are in fact the strongest class this season/patch.

    But if the “All-WoTB runes at once” bracers had remained in the patch, then Barbs would have been 5-7 GRs higher than everyone else, instead of just 2-5 GRs higher. And instead of 80% of 90% of chars this season being Barbs… 90% would have been Barbs? What a different word that would have been! When can we wake from this nightmare?!

    Seriously though. The upgraded WD’s Helltooth set has crazy OP numbers in Patch 2.3. We might as well start prepping for the nerf stick before the PTR even begins. Just hope it happens sooner than later, because Never Forget.
