Now what I want to state is, remember that this is only a fucking game. For 10 seasons people have been wintrading/cheating/exploiting. It is no new thing. Even the well known, famous and high rated players will go as far as to try and disconnect eachother, use alts to snipe eachother, get friends to play their charachters all in all just to try and get rank1.
Rank1 is not about the title anymore, its about trashing as many people as you can if you dont get it, and if you do - well though luck, incoming 5 threads on AJ and General if you took it away from some well known players. People keep claiming that they don't care about rank1, despite having 5 rank1 titles already. Then after a while you see them in a thread and screenshots, flaming and trashing occurs, from the same player that "didnt care". You find out they play 8 hours a day, have 5 different teams and even try to make a living off playing wow (honestly, get a job and stop playing people to Gladiator, let the ones that can do it on their own after 10 seasons get their well deserved title). Rank1 apperently still matters a fuckton for those players, and I hope you know who some of you are I am refering too.
What happend to playing WoW for fun? If you don't get rank1 this Season, go for it next season. Skill isnt based off your titles. Learning the game, getting the right players is what it is all about and having fun. Not sitting 10 hours a day playing 3v3 on 5 chars, 2 boosts and sitting at home without a job nerdbombing and flaming on AJ.
Look at all the teams sharing rank1 titles all along, even with people they hate? (Minipojke wanted to share with Xandyin in 5v5 after trying to kick him from 3v3?? - why would u even trust a guy like that? yet so desperate to get a rank1 u want to share and get a shitty rank1 icon). The former rank1/2 team on EU-Cyclone this season (Aesthetics) couldn't get rank1 on Cyclone after we beat them a few times and decided to all spend 25 euros on migrating to get an ingame title, and now they are also sharing on EU-Frenzy 5v5 because everyone is afraid to man up (Omyx you're even Greek, how can u spend 25 euros on a migration when your country is falling apart ).
Anyway dont judge people beforehand, if you claim them to be wintraders atleast have somewhat solid evidence (not asking for bulletproof evidence, we arent retarded like Blizzard PvP employees). An example of how EVERYONE just jumps on the wagon and grabs their pitchforks was when Hydra said he lost rank1 due to wintraders/MMR buggers.
Apperently this HeyImMVPHisteria did everything to cheat their way to rank1. There was no evidence. Id like to refer to this thread:
Screenshots and the story from Allyana on how they actually beat Hydra, despite him trying to queue with 3 different setups, with 20+ different players (just a random number i pulled out my ass). Even being seen inside 3v3 arena against his former guildmates at 1am (that should be enough for any OTHER team to be named and shamed).
TD:DR It's a game, enjoy it and if you lost and you didn't get your title this season try again next season - Minipojke is a perfect example of this, gz on Rank1
If you don't like it stop playing it, simple. You can't live off boosting people in WoW forever, and you can't live off Gladiator titles you bought yourself, when people play with you they judge you by skill not titles. Beating people is fun, especially if they have rank1 titles - they have something to defend, you don't. Cya
