you are in for a nice surprise if you think no1 will be pillar humping in wod :)

No because the difference is when I play a comp i play it close to skill cap

if anyone needs to be banned, it's you. You do nothing but sit on AJ being a passive aggressive idiot that nobody likes, sorry you stink of washing up liquid.

Feel free to call me an idiot because I'm a hunter or some stupid ass remark but I've actually written all this down on paper

I actually made an appearance at DH2014 and I met up with people from twitch who were involved with the dota 2 / cs tournies that where there, I talked about the game from my perspective as a professional player and we actually shared a lot of opinions. All I'm saying is a lot of people will be VERY surprised about the future of this game in the esport world :)

As others have said it's generally because if I come off the pillar on any of my characters I die in 5 seconds randomly within a blanket silence on my healer.

Thanks LSD & Godcomp

Oh i'm sure they will be, but it's completely ridiculous right now. I feel like 70% of the time that I spend in arena is trying to get in range/LoS of the other team to actually deal damage/cc people. This game used to be a tug of war... now it's just not.

Another big reason is because DPS do such burst and there is so much instant CC that people have to be able to line after the 2 second stun where they lose 80% of their health.

[13:49:14] Creed: u have 20min to find a healer, going for a jog
[13:49:53] Creed: nothing like running through the bush being chased by wild animals to get a proper workout

Having tons of short cd abilities (or procs) that massively swing damage done or taken when they're up also promotes playstyles where you run away until they're up again.

i said that once vs a godcomp that only left the pillar to swp/living bomb.

im not saying i havent pillared either (i only do it vs teams that play like that in particular though), im saying that the whole metagame is disgusting atm that rewards faceroll comps like rmd and godcomp to hiding until deepfreeze comes off cooldown :)

Pillars have always been and will always be a part of this game.. FOR HEALERS! There is no reason (besides the fact that blizz had made this game an instant cast mongo fest) that dps should be pillar humping. I really, really, REALLY hope that god comp and lsd / lsd2 are really good in WoD and i hope that Disc priest / Prot pally / Prot warr is a HARD counter to it.. and i hope every warr / ret runs it to make wiz cleaves lives a living hell because of that theyve done to everyone who doest run wiz cleave for this entire expansion. =]



What should happen: Tank comps counter EVERY wiz cleave... Every other comp counters tank comps. GG. That would make a fun game. "Guys, too many wiz cleaves qing between 2k and 2400! BRING EM OUT." (hops on prot alts and rapes wiz teams from ladders.) G2G. Hop back on mains.. lol..

Please, lets encourage everyone to play Melee/range/healer. Game is much more fun that way.

Ya know, i was born in west philadelphia. I spent most of my days on the play ground. Usually i just be chillin, relaxin, trying to act cool by shooting some b-ball at school. But on this one, terrible, dreary, horrid day, a couple of guys that were certainly up to no good starting making trouble.. I was the first one of course to step up and fight them back. Because of this, my mom got scared and made me move in with my aunt and uncle in bel-air.
