I'd like to wish everyone a happy new season and hope the best for you and your team.

Whether it is bossing orders, making horrible jokes on skype, demolishing 1200 teams after a 13-minute queue, or even just simply joining groups to rage and complain, I'm sure there is a place for you.

Let's all take a moment to fully appreciate how awesome the previous season was and how awesome this new season will be....

1) MMR is incredibly inflated so competing against the best isn't really the best, is it?
2) Titles were taken away from players who actually earned them.
3) There are apparently hundreds of players who reached 2800 losing more games than they won.
4) Your success on several maps will purely be determined by the amount of cooldowns you can incorporate into a Solar Beam + Vortex + AoE Deathgrip combination. I'd suggest bringing multiple Frozen Orbs, Bladestorms, and Monks to make things even easier.

Enthusiastic as always,
Bloobungle

not sure if actually trolling but ill give it a go
1. MMR is incredibly inflated, doesn't have to be bad though (hell we purposefully dropped our mmr abit at the end of the season so we would get alot of queues rather then the same high-level teams over and over
2. Depends on if blizzard decides to ban the wintraders/boost buyers
3. Thats how the system works, if you are on 2850 mmr and lose more then you win against 2900 teams, you will end up on 2800 anyhows, since there are barely any 2900 teams, I very much doubt that there is any team over 2800 player legitimately who loses more then they win
4. Having 5 people pop their 1 minute cooldowns at aprox the same time before the enemy team does it is just about the hardest thing there has ever been in RBG, though I think monk ring of peace is gonna be dumb

wanna win rbgs ? get the following:

mw monk(ring of peace)
dk
boomkin
mage

rest of the classes dont matter (throw in 2 random healers, a few more dps w/ dots or w/e)

do your vortex/grip then pop a ring of peace on the dk right when the vortex is about to win gg you wipe mid. 16 seconds of the other team doing absolutely nothing. you CANNOT counter ring of peace, its not possible. that ability is going to be broken beyond shit in rbgs.

i actually dont even care about having the "curve" in gear, rbgs wont even be fun if you don't have those 4 classes.

RBGs are shit, kinda why they are forcing them down our throat with an insanely bigger conquest cap. Kinda sad, i had massives hopes for them when they were announced and had a blast in s9/s10 doing them, was amazing fun.

Then the community figured the lamest comps aided by Blizzard's love for PvE gear (S11) or retarded game breaking talents (massive aoe cc's, Ursol's vorext, etc.) and it all went down the drain.

Nailed it.
They are still enjoyable in the 1200-1800 range where players are not familiar with overwhelming cooldown combos. Kind of like a random BG.
The amount of meathead involved with them now is amazing.

the CM responses in that thread are pretty disheartening.


"We'll try better next season."
