I haven't played in ages, though I did pickup a Warlock for a little bit during S10. So I finally got around to watching the Blizzcon videos, and wow, it was amazing seeing a Hunter win Blizzcon.

He got a ton of hate for backpeddling, but I thought he played really well. His damage rotation was perfect, and he nailed his CC's to put tons of pressure while having great positioning the entire time. The comp looks incredibly strong, his team went up against the top compositions, and the best players of those classes and they won. The last time a Hunter won a tournament was Twixz running Beastcleave right? Why aren't more of you guys running that high ratings? Hunter damage looks really good, at the end of the games when it would show highest damage dealt I saw 34K.

I'm just curious as I want to see some Hunter movies, even though I don't play, I still pass the time watching Arena flicks!

It also helped that they were playing in S9 gear and not in the current S10 metagame where mages can kill anything in a DF.

hunter takes a lot of skill compared to all the other classes, at the current state they are in im surprised any of them are getting glad and to see one win blizzcon is amazing. I want to play a hunter but they look too hard for me to figure out, pet micromanagement looks so tough.

It works, but in s10 gear, remember when the mage blocked and the hunter got dropped to 10% in a deep freeze at finals?

In s10 gear the hunter ll die every single time, and any idiot double caster team can setup a deep freeze burst with silence on healer.

Thats the biggest point of playing in s10 gear atm against mage caster cleaves atm, but its not a hunter problem ofc.

ya so jealous - i havnt played in over 6 months and make 3 times the cash browsing AJ from work.

retards coming in here thinking hunters are fixed because he won blizzcon. watching the stream for 2 seconds you can see he sucks with all the back-pedalling, disengaging off bridges, not using cc's, and not using tranq at all - that's something a duelist does. then his armory showed up and... it all fits.

i post because people are too stupid to see that.

Like many people have already said, blizzcon wasn't an accurate depiction of what arena is like on live at all. If it was played with s10 gear either snutz or talb's team would have won hands down tbh.

Not to shamelessly plug my own videos, but if you're looking for some Hunter pvp videos I have some in my sig. Braindeadly has also made some lately too. Our youtubes have lotsa random clips too so you can get a good idea of how hunters play nowadays (I love the current state of hunters, wotlk it was so boring/faceroll and TBC was just drain-botting).

I'm actually really excited about PHD as a comp; I understand that in S9 gear, Blizzcon wasn't an accurate representation of the comp's viability in a current arena setting, but I've always dreaded playing against Hunters as long as I have a Mage on my team.

I'm definitely going to give it a shot as soon as my Warr partner gets his DK to cap.

Yeah man cause that kfc shit last season made it non retarded or riding the backs of shadow priest/locks/ ferals. I can see your point totally........Having to play near flawless against some mouth breather wizards. This is a game first and for most its about fun not a job.


Every comp a hunter has to play for the most part is some gimmick comp until blizzard addresses core issues s6-s7 as non beast cleave was the most non retarded you were going to get and even then people will still argue over that.

KFC was broken because warriors, not hunters, what're you talking about? WLS was godly during the 100% CS warrior time too, what exactly is your point?

riding the backs of shadow priest/locks/ ferals.


Hunters ride the backs of spriests? Scatterplay is like the worst comp in the game lol. How many HLS's do you run into?

Hunters have good synergy with melee, they're not necessarily carried by Ferals, Hunter's CC if done right is good.

WotLK Hunter was faceroll and played exactly like a ret paladin, whack'o'mole with your attack cooldowns. If there's at least 1 differing feeling in regards to the state of hunters how can you prove it's all around "bad" based on your opinion alone?

Just because you're not succeeding/having fun doesn't mean it's the game's fault. It could easily be the player's fault, but you'd never consider that you're the problem, it must be blizzards fault right?
