I've also had some trouble finding teams that are willing to take a feral :( Talking 'bout 3s ofc.

With skirmish no longer existing I've felt like tearing my head off a dozen times. To quench my thirst for arena I use "/2 Feral lf anyone to play arena with for points/4lulz/4real". I dont like dueling really so I rather queue with any random chap from trade and give help and guidance to the player if he/she needs :) Feels good to help someone when I had to learn everything the hard way.

I was lucky enough though to find an old warrior friend I know irl ;> All thats left is finding a restoshaman/holypaladin that meets the requirements (lots of activity and dedication).


One thing that might be important in your case is to specify what goals you have as a team. Saying "for points/4lulz/4real" isn't really going to make anyone take you seriously. If you're ready to play on a solid team and you have an idea of where you want to go with the team you'll have people take you more seriously.

I feel like it's impossible to climb the ladder at this point in the game for several reasons.

1. Teams are recruiting above their own actually exp.

2. Experience requirement for starting a 3s team is now really high and it's extremely rare to find anyone to give you a chance if you're below their requirement (I'm not saying a 2.4k player should grab any random 1750 player but a 2k rated player should have some leniency with what he finds).

I mean look at the recruit section right now. 2.7k is the average rating requirement for a team.

I couldn't climb the ladder on my backwater pve server and couldn't afford a xfer. Just pray to god if you find a 0 exp team they're either dark horses or they're quick at adapting. Otherwise have fun in the 1600-1800 bracket all season.

Hello! For you I would suggest playing with large variety of different players (since you are hovering around 1.6k-1.8k who cares if you teamhop/ inv new players to your team). Dont be too picky when finding these guys, most people on trade who demand 2k exp people are utterly shit, you can find rough gems below that. Just recently I was playing 2s (yes, haters gonna hate) for lulz and just picked people from trade/guild. I didnt have any requirments, just somebody to play; from 3 players I played with 1 had no clue whatsoever about arena (he did decentish damage and stuff, but didnt interrupt at all and kept taking all possible CC) and the other 2 were actually quite decent, other one was a rough gem and with some guidance could easily reach high ratings in season or so. Most important is to play with friends, if your friends lack any interest in arena or have downs-syndrome (cant learn to interrupt in 100 games) you should resort to randoms. Just remember that the players keeping biggest fuzz about themselves are usually not the best ones.

And if you're following all of these steps and still finding 0 success? What then? I can't find a single healer on the server I'm on because I don't have the rating I'm trying to work towards.

If you dont have the patience to play with friends long enough for them to learn or you dont have the necessary "skill" to teach others to play their class, Im afraid you are out of luck :( . I played my first gladiator title with my brother, second one we took some 3rd player from trade and R1-title previous partners combined with one trade-random and one from AJ-recruiment. It is always the hardest and most time-consuming phase of getting high the first time, most likely you will get boosted by somebody (not me) or you will find a friend to learn to play together over time. I cannot say 3v3 is the easiest way for new people to learn the arena, it is very fast-paced and it is not so easy to spot what he/you did wrong. Good luck in finding that ´special someone´!

Perhaps move server to somewhere with a higher density of active arena players?
Better players are often willing to play with newer players on their alts, at least for a short while, and then you can get some experience/tips from doing that.

Actually right now I'm playing RPS with a very stubborn and short tempered rogue who I am painstakingly molding into a good player. It's going to take some time but I know she's good. Also I'm on Tich, the only server with more alliance players is KT. I realize this isn't something you accomplish overnight and I'm willing to put a lot of time and effort into making it work.

if you have a computer capable of recording games, do it and go back and check on things that could have gone better, if you look back you can spot tiny errors which caused huge problems....

Well another thing you can do is record your games, record yourself asking people to watch the match and give some tips, put some awesome music to the round and put it up on YouTube.. That could give you some feedback

I smash things when I rage :>

my biggest problem is finding people who won't quit after a couple of losses. Was playing Thugcleave with a resto shaman friend of mine and we found a great rogue, we won some tough ass games, beat one of the best RLS on the server, fucking vanquished a legendary RLS team, a 4x glad mage RMP team, a gurth/legendary ret/rogue/disc team, all on our first day of playing together.

Next day we get about 15 matches against two different fireplay teams, one team we never beat, they were arena masters and were rocking hc deathwing weapons, one team beat us a few times but then eventually we completely stopped losing to them.

Day after that we remade the team, win 1 game, lose 1 to another fireplay (the rogue ran into the room they were turtling in Ruins), lose another to lock/ele/rsham (rogue called out lock as a target, didn't play defensive, got eaten alive by ele) and then goes "sorry guys I can't play in this team" logs off skype, disbands team.

GG.

Had another event like that with another rogue but that's enough QQ for today.

I don't know what to do. The shaman is a very patient, very fun guy to play with, but all the rogues I know that are decent are in teams already.

"Queue" is actually the longest word in English language that can be said with only word letter, "q".

Build up someone and be willing to invest time. You need someone, that likes to work for progress as team. Take someone, that does not base his life around WoW, because these players tend to have the mental stability of drunken girls on boy group concerts. Get someone, that is also into sports. Then start by identifying one point to improve for everyone and check on the progres. Once this point is done, get the next one. Eventually you will have a great team. Most important is to avoid hoppers, that constantly jump on websites, watch TV/browse 4chan and get nervous once their brain does not get some media input.

Good points to watch out for:
- Player congratulates others when losing a duel
- Player points out good moves the enemy team does
- Player talks about how he works on certain points to improves
- Player has had sex in the last to weeks with someone else, than himself
- Player does sports and eats healthy
- Player does not watch TV while playing
