New Shado Pan Arena and Blade's Edge changes
Posted 26 March 2013 - 08:56 PM
- arena players having to raid for best arena gear
- certain arena map imbalances
- 2200 weps/gear mattering too much in arena
ones they have left:
- arena players having to RBG for the best arena gear because of RBG point reward
- end of season rewards are stagnant/arbitrary/outdated
- battlegroup ladder system needs to be consolidated
- regional Q system needs to be consolidated
- real ID arena charters
- the leave battle option next to enter battle when the Q pops............. laughable

btw the copy paste ramps thing on blades edge arena is hilarious, the thing that replaced the rope isnt even centered on the ramp- theres a bigger gap on left side than right. Good change but its funny how little effort they put into this/ how little they care about pvp.
He already tweeted that the current BEM is not the one which will go live, they just wanted some feedback on the ramps if they're in a good spot or not.

I don't think it's balance that effects wow as an esport... it's just too complicated for someone who doesn't actively pvp to follow. Each class can have like 40+ abilities(?) and there are 11 classes with 3 specs, although not all specs are used in tournaments ofc and sometimes not all classes either. In fact I bet most of the average PVPers below 1.8k don't even know what is going on on in tournament level matches.

Neither do the rest of us.

Not sure if platforms will play a big role except when going defensive. All you have to do is walk behind one of the statues if a ranged gets on one. Might be really good for Warlocks though (as usual).

You do understand that WoW was originally dropped from MLG because Blizzard wouldn't update their spectator client, not because there wasn't enough interest. They actually said they were quite happy with how much interest/revenue there was with WoW as an e-sport. This was at a much different time though and I'm not quite sure the PvP community is what it once was to make it succeed. But that's debatable.

I can second this. I used to play Arena with the WoW tournament admin at MLG, he basically said that Blizzard had no interest in supporting WoW as an esport and MLG felt they had to work much much harder with WoW than other games (LoL, whose developer actually supported their game as an esport).

The Flawless Victor title will be added back into the game

I wish they added this back but changed how it was gotten somehow, since it encourages wintrading in a roundabout kind of way.
Posted 01 April 2013 - 06:00 AM
yeah man 10 wins at 2k+ deff encouraged the most trading
