Last year, our University Relations and World of Warcraft teams challenged college and university students to submit an original 3D work of art that fits seamlessly into World of Warcraft. We received a slew of amazing entries, and after much deliberation chose some very deserving winners. You can also see honorable mentions at the contest site!

Ariel Fain - Character Winner
No sale on MOP, sad:( impressive artwork, though!
In the current LFR, it's RNG that says IF you'll get a drop or not. THAT doesn't need to change. But there is NO earthly reason for anyone to "win" what they already have. It's like being RNGed twice. I DO kinda like the idea of winning a RNG based drop, then being able to choose which item you get. THIS is "progression." Winning the same thing over and over is only more ways to convince folks to contemplate leaving the game. There is no reason I can think of in any way, shape or form that these duplicates are a good idea. You DID win a drop, which does NOT happen every kill, after all.Another idea I heard expressed was auto d/e. There's no way to "choose" d/e assuming a chanter in the raid, but so what? Being able to turn that duplicate piece of gear into something useful is a win. 17-25G from vendoring it is a LOSS.
personally i feel loot system is not set up to fill a iv been thre killed this boss id like my toon to have some progression on what his gear lvl is. after 7-8 weeks 5 of my toons have 1 item dropped...1...i say one this barring winning same item 6 times..or only thing you win are the 3 vp items you already purchased are. but i find it annoing when 2-3 weeks in see some random guy whinning they didnt get that drop they really wanted.. inspect them they had 10+ items arelady, i look at my toon 0..1...8 weeks later 2 items...or see person win same item they dont need..how hard is it to make auto script detects this player arleady has this equipped...pass loot to next player. see people win sha tocuhed weapon 9 times in row. while took 6 months for some people to repalce thier 463. looking foreward to new rolling system...might make me want to do more dailys...
Something I've thought of that blizzard could do is to give you 5-6 items to choose from every part of the lfr and you can choose 1 out of those 5-6 items eligible for your class (you could choose what spec you wanted gear for, which is gladly coming in 5.3). This would make people motivated to do the LFRs more often and actually be able to get AT LEAST 1 piece per LFR part, it won't be too easy to gear, but it would be a nice push. A bit like a pat on the back saying "thanks for your participation in the LFR", giving you a item you want and might help more people start raiding!To do this right though Blizzard would need to give this reward at the end of each part. Though you would only be able to do this once every week.This shouldn't be that difficult for blizzard to create and would make most of the players happy (obviously you can't make everyone saticfied, but it's a good start for it.).Thanks for reading this, I hope most of you guys and girls will agree and some might even forward this to blizzard :)
Wow, Blizzard employees frankly deal with a lot of ship.
It's pretty important that this blue brought up fun.Last week I went 0/9 on lfrs bosses, 0/3 on bonus rolls, and 0/2 on world bosses. How on God's green earth is that fun? Is that the first time this has happened? HELL NO! I went 0/29 with my monk once he became lfr ready. So PLEASE blue, don't try to tell us what is fun. I stayed up until 3am before reset just trying to finish that last lfr because I had gotten not one upgrade all week, just to come up empty again. There is nothing fun in that. Nothing at all. I am very close to quitting and this isn't crying over spilled milk. Hey, if I CAN'T down a boss I don't expect to get loot. When I can down 11 bosses, I expect at least 1 upgrade or there is just no reason to do it....
This is a tipical blizzard's employee answer..telling nothing new...they do what "They" think its better...well i foresee a lot of unsubscription coming soon.The frustation level in wow now is almost unbearable. Keep the arrogance, thinking u guys knows everything, and lets see what the future bring to us.
