i just don't see the reason why he's arguing with me that blizzard won't make a tinker class, NOT because they lack any lore, NOT because there's any trouble from the players, NOT because they are barely doable in an mmorpg like this. but ONLY because HE thinks not. not coming with any ideas how to create a better class, not coming with any reason as to why blizzard shouldn't do this class, he just tells me that he thinks blizz won't do it and that's not really a good answer :/
Just because *you* don't see a reason for which Blizzard wouldn't release Tinker doesn't mean that *i* do not see it either. I pointed out why i think so, and some of those reasons include: lack of popularity of Tinker among players, Engineering profession that would mess up a little and difficulty with thinking up so many technology-based spells and talents. Don't agree with me? Welcome to world, where everyone have his/her own opinion.
I'm not trying to convince you to think the same way i do. You will not convince me to your opinion either, if this is what you want. Let's end this already, because there is no point in it.
1. lack of popularity of tinker among players = "This is only my assumption" i haven't seen a a majority of players hating on technology in wow. only seen like 2-3 peeps not like that gnomes are to technologic, the rest (LOOOOOOAAAAAADS THOUSANDS) does not have a problem with it OR really loves their technology and engineering. i still don't know how you found out the majority wouldn't like a tinker class.
2. Engineering profession that would mess up a little and difficulty with thinking up so many technology-based spells and talents. Don't agree with me?
first up, i do not agree with you on that point. it's not talk about 80-100 spells here, most classes, especially melee's does not have many different spells and i see that working fine with the tinker, he doesn't need loads of spells as the spells he will have will be very widely used instead of beign a one time go like mages fireball/frostbolt/arcane missiles and their all different stuff. the tinkers spell will be muchly based on summoning robots (only need about 4-5 of these, a flying machine that can attack the enemy from above, a 3 group of robots to help the tinker out of sticky situations, a kind of permanent pet robot that can be used for several stuff including firing of rockets and a fast 2-3 sec lasting robot that isntantly rushes to the enemy and explodes dealing a arcane explosion big explosion. then there will be a very buff heavy side of them that also doesn't need very many spells, a self protection spell (robot skin?) a couple 3-4 sensor machines you spawn on the ground that buffs up damage in both melee and spell with it following you.
i can go on an on with these i've got loads and looooaaaaads of ideas as to what spells he shall have. most of these were taken from other classes with a tinker touch to it but there's so much unique stuff you can do with him to! there's no class out there that would be able to use aoe stuns (bombs) the tinker will have a gun/rifle for ranged fighting for the robots which is kinda hunter-ish but with a twist, that's not the way he's gonna DPS, he's gonna DPS by using different self cast short lasting buffs and robots doing lots of the work. the gun is more for maybe marking targets, debuffing the enemy to be weaker to explosions, shoot a special bullet giving a bomber plane coordination to bomb.
i'm trying to tell you that there's so much stuff you can do with a class like this and it could become a very different and new refreshing thing it could become. i'm not trying to force you into thinking the way i do, i just wanna know why you still think that there's lack of ideas and lacks material to make a playable class and especially, where do you get the stuff about only a minority of player wanting to play this class?
