#3626503 Why do you still play?

I continue to play to try to figure out ways to win the impossible matchups in arena right now. There is some delusional part of me that believes there is something my team can do better to stop the opposing team from one shotting someone... Those few games we win the unwinnable feels great, and the games I lose I whine about every second of it what's going on and how we lost. One day I'll learn.

#3620822 Dragonwrath vs Tier2

Posted Thaya on 21 January 2012 - 10:42 PM

Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest is unbelievably bad.

Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest is extremely bad and unreliable for a couple of reasons.

  • It doesn't scale correctly with gear, it's basically the equivalent of a quest item with INT on it
  • The staff is only MEDIOCORE if you have other heroic trinkets such as Cunning of the Cruel and you have to spend half your life trying to get it with 24 other people who spend half their lives doing the same thing, but you probably already did this by obtaining the staff, so you need to spend the other half of your life on doing the exact same thing you were doing in the first half of your life which is extremely depressing and absolutely not worth it

I've started to do some number crunching with a few of my buddies we came up with these numbers after testing Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest

This chart clearly shows it's doing less damage than Emberstone Staff:

After number crunching, research shows Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest is not scaling correctly, which is clearly shown by this equation

For all of you out there that are picking this staff up, I advise getting http://www.wowhead.com/item=5201 or stick to your t2.



P.S.

#3510643 Inherent problem with WoW

ye starcraft and dota were balanced from top to bottom and they didn't have shit for longevity yea?

okay whiny babies, maybe he should have specified type of game?

Starcraft/SC2 are pretty much made for the solo player and for competition, despite all of the other concepts involved.

WoW is an MMO. You don't see MMO's being built to cater to the top tier player.

Think about it like this if you will for a second:

How many people do you know who just play WoW for fun? I know quite a lot. Most people I know never raid, never arena, they just like to level up characters with their friends and do BGs. If they ever step into arena, they will likely just go in to have some fun and screw around.

I have a real life friend who would totally be okay going 5-40 in arena if it meant he could play with his friends.

If you catered to the top players in this game, you know what percentage of players you'd be hitting? less than 1% People don't play this game hardcore, they play it for fun.

That guy who plays his 8 arena wins a week and it takes him 30 games to do it, he doesn't know about focus macros, he doesn't know about keeping track of buffs. I mean hell, on a lot of streams I notice a lot of Gladiators who simply don't know half the abilities that classes have or accurately what they do.

If you balanced the game around super technical shit that top players were capable of doing and knew better to do; then the players at the bottom would think things are retardedly overpowered. When I leveled alt Mages, I'll see Druids in the 1500s who I think still don't know you can cleanse magic, so their partners will just eat full roots..

Have you ever played a caster against an 1800 rated shaman who simply doesn't know how to manage shearing/grounding?

I would totally agree that we should have buffs going for the top player; if lower-tier players had somewhere to go to find this information out. Unfortunately, if you come to this website now, you just see constant trolling, whining, and posts about how everyone is going to quit or just play a different game, so there's really not much to learn.

There isn't discussion, there sure as hell isn't tips for improvement, and if anything due to the "elitism" brought on by AJ status, you're pretty much shit on the second you start posting here.

Not above 2k? you're terrible. Not above 2200? terrible. Above 2200 playing any comp with a mage, lock, shaman, rogue, dk, feral, sp? equally terrible. Can't hit 2400? terrible. Can't hit 2600? terrible. Gladiator? Well it's only one time so you suck. 7x glad? Well gl getting rank one terrible.

We can't expect the game to be catered to the highest level player because the highest level players want nothing to do with actually helping others learn. The community at AJ is supposed to be for high level discussion but even that is just dead because people just constantly shit on each other and say how terrible the game is.


tl;dr the problem is with the community, not the game.

Reckful quits WoW on the same day they crack the speed of light.... is this a coincidence?


#3495295 Reckful's Goodbye

Posted Reckful on 23 September 2011 - 06:10 AM

haven't played in about a month, i think it's finally time i move on.  i've been playing MMOs since i was 10...

as for wow, i think the focus changing to rbgs was the end for me. i like playing with tight groups of friends and, maybe i just don't have 9 close friends, but i didn't get the comfortable fuck around in skype feeling when playing rbgs.  also they aren't as engaging & you don't feel like you're accomplishing as much yourself, most of the time... well i'm sure you guys know.

i enjoyed arena over the years, no complaints.  most nostalgic probably 2v2 in TBC, playing warrior/druid then spriest/rogue.  most fun... well shoutouts below.  looking back, despite any imbalances, it's been fun.

shoutouts: talbadar, nadagast, yog, benys, valrath, hotspot, marma, gravemind, venoma, neil, woundman

& thank you 3v3 teams since 2007:
aeror/matt, hyped/fuzion, sodah/venruki, azael/cdew, pookz/elano, snutz/toez, col.red


memories,
