I was wondering, what was it that you did that improved how you played in Arena the most? Was it an add-on? Learning something about your class? Getting a better arena partner? What was it that shot you up to 2k and up?

I know for me personally, starting to play arena with someone who knows a lot about other classes and improving my UI to get up quicker dispels, and of course keybinding EVERYTHING.

I would really appreciate hearing about your guy's experiences and stories :D. Thanks alot,

Mandor

Binding everything and making macros improved my gameplay a ton. You are able to hit your spells and abilities much faster then clicking.

Playing with a teammate that wants to improve and will try his hardest to improve as well. Playing with a teammate that keyboard turns and clicks and doesn't want to try to improve much won't help you at all.

Also letting your teammates know what they could improve on when you are playing with them, and also telling them to let you know what to improve on. Sometimes you've done something the same way for a long time that you dont think it's wrong.

Don't play arena when you are pissed off at your partners...usually doesn't work. Take the night off and cool off ;)

Communication is Key, calling who you are ccing, if you are cc'd, good switch targets, etc etc.

that's all one thing? what?

thing that changed arena most for me was probably just experience, lots and lots of experience with each comp learning how to treat each situation

I don't recall him ever saying only one thing. I just thought I'd throw out a bunch of random things that have helped me, or have helped other people.

Wow! I can definitely relate to being angry with your partner, when we're yelling it seems like we do worse. I appreciate the feedback, and I'd be happy to hear multiple things that improved your ability in Arena.

Experience, more specifically playing comps again and again also seemed to really help me. Knowing what to do right off the bat vs them always seems to help.

Can't wait to hear more :)!

Key binding everything, playing with virtually default UI and only the crutch that is gladius and never blaming your partners because no one likes a nerdrager

Believe it or not I'm a nice guy with a mild mannered personality. So no, i wouldn't "choke someone", even though my 6pack abs allow me to do that

The people you play with, help you improve. If you don't play with great players, you won't be doing anything.

Appreciate your partners and work hard to improve your teamwork.

"Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear."

this game would be far better if either;

A. Casters could cast while moving or
B. Melee couldnt hit while moving

Beating up a guy I just knew from distance irl. He played on other realm on our BG and always stalked me online to see what and when I play - and then proceeded to countercomp me every single time. Beating him up after he pissed me off pretty badly after 20 consecutive matches of him doing that shit - has improved my rating by about 200.

Turning off my game sound as well.

lol.
