ok so i took the time to read that dumb post of yours full of assumptions.

what you're doing is called a generalization. that's when you take qualities from a small sample (like the amount of girls you've met or heard of) and apply it to that entire group.
i know what "generalization" stands for very well. thing is, even though i was speaking for myself, there are more than enough evidence and polls with plenty of data out there in the internet to support my argument, i just didnt want to look like a retard "oh look the internet says this so it must be true", but if you actually read the well-thought researches you can see my point isnt just for naught.

Quote

sometimes people (like you!) base their opinions (not facts) on generalizations, creating a fallacy. every time you devalue a group based on something like sex or race (even this time) it's based on a fallacy. the people who do that are called racists or, in your case, sexists.
im not devaluing anyone. where did you see i devaluing any female player? all i said (and explicitly at that) is that "most female players receive favors solely due to their sex". i didnt say females are bad, or that females cant achieve X or Y, i said they get a lot of help, no matter if they needed it or not. i am not a racist nor sexist because i dont base my values or judgements on people's sex or appearances, that is but another ridiculous assumption of yours.

Quote

"i've met a few black people and a lot of them smelled bad, therefore most black people smell bad."
this example is more like "ive met a few black people and been told by a lot of other people that also seen a few black people, and been told by a few black people that also happen to have met quite some black people, and we all agreed that most black people smell bad."
even that example of yours is retarded because if you actually take the demographics of black people you will see that a real big number of them actually live in scarce and precarious zones in the world where they simply lack the money and/or conditions to keep their hygiene up to what specialists say is safe (and consequently "smelling bad").

now, a truely good example of what im saying would be "a lot of black people get into college using quota slots" (dont know if your country has those). thats not saying black people cant enter it through ordinary means, it just means its how the college system works.

Quote

what evidence do i have to support the fact that you're generalizing? this is easy, i didn't even need to scroll up:
again, where is your evidence to say im generalizing? all you're doing is quoting myself saying its, somehow, evidence im generalizing and that im sexist, while i on the other hand have been trying to give data to support my arguments.

now, will you please STOP fucking twisting my own words and seeing only what YOU want to see?

This game's competitive demographic makes up a lot less than 10% of WoW's total population. Out of that, only 0.5% (and etc) are actually good at the game. To make matters worse, females who play this game in a competitive aspect with pvp in mind are very few compared to the male population.

So I'd say in terms of percentages, males and females probably "get carried" roughly about the same (obviously females would get things for free, so they have an advantage in that regard). The same way one would say most guys get carried in this game (which could very well be true) you would say with about females. However, due to the lack of population, your anecdote would conclude that predominately females are the ones that get carried.

I don't know, I think maybe your statement is irrelevant because the same could be said about males. The only difference is the manner of how females acquire these services, and also the reputation of being a female brings.

my statement was more abrangent than merely "getting carried in arenas". it was aimed at pretty much anything in the game. also, if you take the male players that are "carried", a good amount of them are due to an agreement of some sort (be it paying gold or whatever), while in case of female players its mainly because the male counterpart expects somehow to have something in return from the female (mostly idiots).
even then, if you were to have it as percentages i'd still argue that a greater percentage of females receive favors compared to males'. but yea, a lot of males get "carried" too, no doubt about that.

if you really think that, you obviously dont think its fun anymore. so why do you even play? I know there is some obvious answer to it but at the end of the day, its a game and its supposed to be fun.

and for the rest, i really cant believe what im reading. there is wintrading and ddosing and hacking and all this other ill shit going around, and you STILL get insanely mad over someone legitimately getting glad as a certain comp that requires maybe less skill. but think to yourselves, 3dps isnt even CLOSELY as good laddercomp as ANY other :warlock: :shaman: 'random'. but when those good laddercomps actually get farmed by 3dps, the tide is turned...

i just think people forget whats important in this game, too have fun. and if these guys in that video have fun getting glad for the first time as 3dps. so be it, get over it AJ.

I do find arena fun, and I do still enjoy the game for the most part. That doesn't mean that the game is remotely close to being -balanced-.

Noone is asking for absolute balance, just a good balance to play with.
I am pretty sure a bunch of top wow pvp players could easily do a 10times better job than blizzard at balancing  the game in s11.

And yeah they can survive for more than 30 seconds without casting. You have partners in 3v3 you know? SURPRISE
