Hey folks

I have been watching gcdtv tournaments both eu and us, and i am pretty sure i havent seen 1 person playing discipline priest.
I read posts of people saying that disc is fine, disc is op, etc etc. I play disc myself and i am kind of enjoying it and i think is a good class, but i dont understand why people dont play it in tournaments. It would be so cool to see some disc actions during those events, especially in tournaments where the prize pool is not that high
What do you guys think? Please discuss

It's a very special snowflake healer, normally attracting the biggest autists that nobody wants to be in a team with. Right now disc is also kind of bad so there is no reason to play with one.

if you play a disc priest you are not a real human being

Well I dont think there is a correlation between playing disc and suffering from autism, but i get your point of disc priest not beeing really good for the meta right now.

well there is. There is only one disc on EU who is both good enough to play in tournaments and isn't a complete autist (and I don't just mean difficult to deal with or bad, I mean a legitimate autist); There are like 5+ "good" discs but nobody would ever tolerate them in a serious team.

 

And yeah, disc really does seem to attract people with autism.

I see you hate disc priest and you dont like people who play it, i guess i dont know about what is going on in the "eu finest" group of people. The topic is about why people do not play the class focusing on the game mechanics, but i guess the fact that "good" priest are not in a good relationship with skilled players like yourself could be the answer of low partecipation of the class itself. Thanks for the gossip xD

"why don't people play discs in tournaments?"

>"class is not nearly as good as druid or monk against meta comps, and the vast majority of players dislike most of the tournament level disc players, meaning nobody is going to play with a shit class with someone they dislike in a tournament

 

struggling to see whats difficult to understand about that explanation

disc priest has plenty of t1 comps, the players playing these comps(in eu) dont care as much as the people who tryhard for tournaments, generally rogue mage/lock shaman players, all the good/tournament level hunters dont play/care anymore, im pretty sure a team like refren vess/zunni cara and a good feral could do well if they could work together as a team but to play in a tournament its alot more than just being individually skilled like the players ive listed, loony and i both play disc but our group of friends/team dont really play the classes suited for us to play a disc comp at tournament level. most disc comps(hunter comps mainly) are good because they auto win majority of stuff but simply cant beat some other comps unlike rmd(wod) that could beat everything or turbo/shatter/lsd(wod) that didnt have complete HARD counters and could win lesser players

nobody is perfect i guess ;)
btw i am not saying disc is shit ever since holy radiance buff. i only said it''s boring and not competitive in tournaments. i also said it's very poorly designed to the point if you revert holy radiance, nobody would even play it. if it was up to me, i'd change it radically, starting by holy radiance and 2casting schools.

 

autism confirmed?


so i am autistic (wonder if you even know what that means) cause i have a diff opinion about a videogame. your mom shoulda taught you better. results of bad american parenting is sad

that just seems so unlikely to me. all healers play so similar now and disc is just not a hard spec to play - if it was the best healer for a tournament viable comp I think people would play it without question... its essentially a 4 button spec and any healer that multiclasses could pick it up and play it at a high level easily.

 

i think the fact that it has an incomplete/gimmicky toolset and a relatively low skillcap makes it a shitty tournament spec and people dont run it for that reason.
