I'm a programming hobbyist.  I have done plenty of website backend with PHP and have always wanted to see if I could design classes that are better balanced than world of warcrafts.

In world of warcraft there is always some one crying and whining about how unbalanced this or that is.  Often times, its very true.  For instance, recently, hunters were EXTREMELY over powered in arena.   If you loaded into an arena match with a hunter you assumed it was a loss.  Because he would cast "Stampede" and kill you... then your partner.

This was simply due to a bug and was hotfixed.  The ability stampede spawns 5 pets (instead of the hunters normal 1 pet) with each pet doing 25% of its normal damage.  This means 25% more damage than your pet was doing before.

The glitch was that solely in arena something happened that cause each pet to do 100% of its normal damage giving you a 400% damage bonus to your pet (500% damage total.)   No healer could heal through it.

This glitch was found and hastily fixed.  Good job Blizzard!

However Frost Mages have sat on a pedestal ever since their inception.  If you lose a fight to a frost mage the general rule is "No biggie it was a frost mage."

Warriors have been over powered since mists came out and blizzard refuses to balance them because "We dont have enough gear."   <- blue post.

Whats with the complete inability to lower the grand power of frost mages a little bit?  Or nerf the unholy crap out of warriors because they need it so bad?


My objective isn't really to make an MMO but, to see if I can create a small MMO environment with the same number of classes and specs. (or something very similar to WoW) that is balanced completely.


Hopeftully I dont get dogged to hard.  But, if your thinking about shooting me down; I already know I wont be able to do much more than something like world of warcrafts arena, frankly because I wont be able to get many people to play.  Let alone learn a class well enough to consider it balanced or not balanced.   I'm not a modeler - everything I model tends to look like what fry made while practicing his holophoner, in futurama - parasites lost, after he lost the worms.  I have coded many back end systems for websites in PHP using mysql.  HSL will be different and hard.  But I'm confident I can learn it.

I think i'm pretty smart.  I understand that Rock's fine but, Scissors needs to be nerfed.   Only cause I'm playing paper though.  I want to try this.  The question is... Where the hell do I start?
