Greetings!

I've recently returned to the game and found that tripple dps teams are capable of high rating in 3v3 bracket. However every single time I see somebody talking about 3 dps teams he claims its a bad thing.
Could somebody please explain why is the "trip dps scum" attitude is going on atm? Is the trip dps thing considered unfair by all highly experienced players/rats?


Thanks for the answers.

I ran tripple dps this season and I can say it is the least fail-safe comp I have ever ran, one little mistake from anybody can result in a loss quickly. But yeah also what he said^^

Triple dps used to bother me earlier in the season but I figured out how to deal with them later in the season other than that the comp itself is brainless all they got to do is pop all their offensive CDs when they connect on their target without any position awareness whatsoever and try to 1 shot that target

Skill cap on 3dps isn't all that high, mainly.  It's easy for them to counter teams like RLS, but people forget that there are also a number of teams that counter 3dps.  Essentially, it's like bringing the 2's bracket dilemma into 3's.  Matches are decided before gates open a high percentage of the time, and it's hard for either team to influence the outcome via outplaying the opponent.

I doubt that many 1800 players got gladiator as 3dps.  At least, on my bg, there were only two that ran the comp and were able to achieve gladiator.  Neither was composed of 1800 players. :x  Maybe on easier battlegroups?

Regardless, the skill floor is fairly low, but the composition also doesn't really allow the players running it to "outskill" the other team.

I think the argument circulating around the PvP community was that it was just a zerg setup. Gates open, call the target, then pop CDs. That's basically how the strategy goes. I think a lot of players are angry because it's still a viable setup despite the fact that it has a very simple strategy and is essentially easier to play.

I personally didn't think it was all that bad I mean it was kinda scrubby but isn't everything? Sure anyone can run triple dps but it does take time skill and dedication for it to actually work

3 dps are scum because the comp itself is braindead. The strat is set in stone with much room for error. It also countered any comp that didnt have a paly or mage in it. Basicly People rage because idiots who normalt run around at 2k had a chance or even close to 100% chance to win against greater players who ran normal comps (dps, dps + healer).

People hate it because it was essentially a "Free win" vs a lot of comps.
They tried to defend it by saying "But RLS gets free wins" etc whereas the truth was whilst comps like RLS was stupidly strong, the games lasted long enough for other comps to outplay the shit ones and win anyway.
Then trip DPS peeps tried to defend it by saying it too had counters suchs as fire/pally/shadow etc, but the entire community knew if you had a lucky string of lock/shaman comps or queue sniped properly using an alt team to check what was playing you could take a 2k rated player up to 2.5k without ANY fucking effort.

Also a trip dps would have to be monumentally bad to lose vs a lot of comps. So watching players who would normally struggle to even hit T2 range suddenly crush some very very good players because they learnt how to chain 10 secs of abilities together in an opener didn't endear the comp to the community.

In short when you can selectively queue and have something that completely counters (we're not talking a small advantage here, they have to derp so hard to lose it's not funny) so many comps that every aspiring rogue/ret/hunter/dk jumps on the bandwagon and turns the ladders into a giant gamble plus the influx of people suddenly trying to brag/defend their new found rating/comp. Well it didn't go down too well.

Feral was actually the largest counter to the composition

Beastcleave was far from as retarded as tripple dps, because tripple dps has a lot less counters.

Triple DPS was simply a natural response to the RLS dominance.

I watched some of the worst, and i mean worst players finally pass 2.2k this season because of triple dps, 1800 players finally gaining their elite gear, Which is wrong, but i'm genuinely thankful that there was so many triple dps teams, without them we would have seen a ladder ONLY full of Lock shaman teams. But tbh most lock shaman comps are just as bad as triple for other comps to face.
