Was sitting barely in glad range a week before the season ended. Our warrior said he had alot of real life crap to attend to and we had to get games in ASAP to secure glad. The rating tanked to 2400 since he lost interest and "didn't care" about getting gladiator anymore.

The hunter and I leave the team. We try PHD to no avail and go different ways.

Saturday arrives and I get my hunter friend to join the team the hunter and I left to play ATC with our old war that apparently wanted to push for glad again. Our prs are at 1k and his is at 2.4k. We push our way up to 2630 with a record of 31-6 and our warrior decides to stop playing when the ques were prime to push to 2700. He logs and goes to bed at 9pm....We play some games sunday and the rating tanks to 2550 and the warrior gets depressed and says this game is a waste of his life and gives lead to me.

The hunter I used to play with has a warrior on another realm with BiS prot gear and we get him to xfer over. We grind out games to get our pr up the rest of sunday night.

A few hours before the season ends on monday we q up and get the team up to 2655 which is apparently safe for glad on Ruin. The warrior that we tanked with is 11 pr from being in 100 of the team. Sucks for him.

No Glad for me, not really upset though. Was playing around for most of the season (playing comps like kitty cleave, war/mage/x, etc. -- with random players), so I expected it. Never really found serious partners up until this week, and we didn't really have enough time to grind it out. Anywho, I'm not a wielder of Shadowmourne or any good PvE loot, so what I could I expect (desperately tried looking for decent partners since early-mid September, and no luck - those with Shadowmourne were largely preferred). :o

My biggest regret: not playing prot. Even though I love the playstyle of arms, and dread playing prot, I should have done it. ATC was a solid comp this season.

Respect to both Zorbis and Grazzk for sticking it out. Big thank-you to Grazzk for playing with us, even though he had Glad secured in 5s.

I played my warlock (played Shadowcleave) heavily throughout March/April/May and pushed to rank 8 (2621) before I had to go idle for ~2 months for a trip. When I came back, I found out that our druid quit the team (went to play with another team), and that we pushed all the way down to rank ~30. We never really reached out to druids to replace our old one, and eventually time just ran out. Thus, no glad on my lock.

Overall, the season was very fun. I enjoyed playing all of my toons (warrior, lock, shaman, priest, rogue). Looking forward to what Cata has in store (hopefully warriors aren't going to experience another s5, as warrior is my favorite class by far).

Lost glad in the last 10 minutes. Beast cleave pushed past us pushing us into 30th out of 29 place.


Played this beastcleave last minute.

Started queueing around 12 est at 2540 rating. Chain queued to 3 am with final game starting at 2:52 with our rating at 2688. We played some arms mm holy paladin. I was at 19% deterrence the killshot then counter kill shot the hunter. Then raced to down pally and warrior before shutdown.

Not to mention lots of phd on other bg's sitting.

Also beastcleave is shitcomp now. Had to have perfect cc chains. Still its beastcleave easy though.

Well... my story and i think russ can relate to this

Old server gurubashi sucked, no 1 to play aust time so i xfed off to aust server, finially found team mates but my computer gave me the shits.. win 10 games, then lose 20 due to bluescreen. then finially got it fixed just last week and pushed enough.


I have to say though, ATC is about 100000x more viable in spell cleave dominated BGs than PHD though. Especially against Warlock teams. It felt good to show most of them what was up, especially the shitty 2400 Wizards who saw a Hunter and almost wet themselves trying to train me.

PHD is probably better against Rogue teams (or at least safer... a stunned Rogue goes down fast, but with a DK he doesn't even do damage), and better against comps like Warr/Ele/Holy or Double Healer Warr/Sham/Pally, ones without a squishy target to create pressure on, but that's about it.


I have to say.. i can so relate to this.. wish i could play ATC instead tbh=S.. or even try it=(
