ArenaJunkies Shutting Down on July 1st 2018

 

Today we'll be announcing the closure of ArenaJunkies on July 1st. This was a hard decision to make, and we would like to sincerely thank you all the users who have supported us over the years.

 

I'll always remember using ArenaJunkies since way back in Wrath of the Lich King, where many of us had our competitive banters over our rating and gameplay. AJ was a fun place where I found a lot of useful information when I was new to arenas, and the spice from the battlegroup forums really added to the competitiveness nature of PvP.

 

It was fun being a user, moderator, and admin of this site. Thank you all for your support!

No because the difference is when I play a comp i play it close to skill cap

if anyone needs to be banned, it's you. You do nothing but sit on AJ being a passive aggressive idiot that nobody likes, sorry you stink of washing up liquid.

Feel free to call me an idiot because I'm a hunter or some stupid ass remark but I've actually written all this down on paper

I actually made an appearance at DH2014 and I met up with people from twitch who were involved with the dota 2 / cs tournies that where there, I talked about the game from my perspective as a professional player and we actually shared a lot of opinions. All I'm saying is a lot of people will be VERY surprised about the future of this game in the esport world :)

May we rest in peace.

 

Here's some material I've saved over the years - only 10% of what I had. Older threads etc are no longer valid links or lost in the curse transition:

Thanks for everything Vangaurds, you are a true hero.

 

I am hoping you could provide a more in depth explanation why the site is shutting down. Is hosting too expensive? Has the decision come from Curse to shutdown the website? Are the people/person that support the website over maintaining it? 

 

A more in depth explanation would be awesome since a lot of people here are probably curious as to why it is shutting down. If you explain the issues we may even be able to help for all we know. If hosting the server is not breaking even in an economical sense, I am sure there are people here who will be more than happy to chip in to keep the shit storm threads alive (I know i personally would). If it is an issue maintaining the website, I am sure there are people here who know their HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP and can maintain it (I know I personally do). I look forward to hearing your response.

 

Kind regards,

From Ozar.

I am going to miss you all.  I am going to miss this site.  I feel like when it shuts down years of memories of WoW die down.

This is sad. The game has been shit forever, but to watch what's left of the community die - this really hurts. I was so into this site for so long, from season 2 to 10 I think. I checked AJ daily for years.

 

WoW drama and memes were great, especially during TBC and WoTLK era. Reading posts from Faction (#GOAT), Capstone, Menismyforte, Giantz, Diziet, Ruin drama in general, Bailamos and RBGs, Abni eating his vomit, US vs EU, shit, those are fond memories.

 

Shoutouts to everyone I played with and to everyone I had an argument with here. Hope to see you guys at some other game.

Fuck is wrong with you fucking quitting faggots?

 

None of you is willing to fight? Just "RIP bye"?

 

I will fight and I won't let this forum die. This is my memory box and a part of who I am today. Same goes for all of you motherfuckers.

Going to blizzcon looking for a fight is like going to the official wow arena forums for pvp advice :)

If I had a gun with two bullets and I was in a room with Hitler, bin Laden, and you, I would shoot you twice.

bro you got +rep'd by rapture...

I guess some site like this will rise again when Blizzard releases TBC Legacy servers a couple of years after the Vanilla ones.
 
For the first time since MoP there will be again official servers with a playable version of the game in terms of Arena/PvP.

Real talk, no bullshit (for once).

 

Officially an end of an era, although this site died a long long time ago. WoW and AJ got me through highschool. At one point in high school, I thought "WoW is forever, I will never get bored of this game". I also thought that AJ is likely going to remain around for as long as WoW will. Guess I was wrong.

 

Even after quitting ages ago back in 2011 (and subsequently playing on and off for short periods of time), I still found myself reading AJ whenever a season was about to end, that juicy sweet ass drama was the best thing since sliced bread.

 

In all honesty, I never actually cared about the game itself but rather more about the people playing it (and my social status in it - I grew such a fucking inflated ego at one point due to being good at mashing buttons in a game, cringe), and this game and this forum were always about the people (hell, if all the oldies were around I'd still prolly play the game myself). And boy were the people on this forum awesome (and I'm not talking about the offtopic faggots that extended the lifespan of this forum for an extra year now at the end). It was honestly exciting being in the company of other people like you, trashtalking, exchanging ideas, having people look up to you, it was an amazing experience.

 

Playing WoW and being an active AJ'r was basically a separate life to your real one back in the day, and I've made so many friends and contacts, even made a couple of lifelong real life friends (I met 2 of my closest IRL friends thanks to WoW), therefore I can't really feel sorry about dedicating the time into this game and this forum. It paid off multiple times. My only regret is that newfags (2012+ onwards) didn't get to experience AJ in all its glory.

 

The day AJ shuts down is honestly the day I can say a part of me dies, even if I've moved on with my life a long time ago and AJ era is nothing but a distant memory at this point.

 

Was a good hustle y'all, especially the Cruelty crew <3

The move away from seperate battlegroups definitely killed a lot of the competitive banter on this site

Maybe someone should create a "community" in BfA (http://fr.wowhead.co...ame-communities), and named it Arena Junkies. So we can continue shitting on each other for pointless reasons.

It has been fun. Shout out to all the AJ boyz.

 

Very unfortunate Blizzard's incompetence has killed this place. With the changes to BfA, I don't see any future for competitive PvP in WoW anymore (and neither does Curse apparently.)

 

It is kind of crazy how much my life has changed because of AJ/WoW. Most of my best friends are from Arena Community. Without this place I probably would have never gone to any of the Blizzcons I did, and never met any of the awesome people I did (shout out to RamboJohny lol.) Last summer I drove 2000 miles to hang out with friends I made through WoW. Big thanks to Caal, Azurewrath, Agnos and especially Zetox for getting me into WoW PvP.

 

If anyone wants to add my btag: Regent#1606. I don't really play any Blizzard games at the moment, but do plan on at least casually playing Classic (maybe we can make an AJ guild?)

 

If they ever do release TBC/WOTLK/MOP servers I have an AJ-like site/forum sitting here on my hard drive just waiting to go up.
