I'm happy that this is happening, it's one piece of evidence that shows Blizzard is really trying.

-People running in full Grievous and nothing be done with that
-Conquest vendors being out of the game from the start
-One massive ladder, except it's just a list of everyone on a region. Old Battlegroups are still in place, which leads to next:
-There's still servers that are easier to gain rating than others because how queuing works
-Arena queuing bugs, can't press queue if someone is still in arena or in loading screen or you have to remake group
-Resilience buff before players are fully geared resulting in huge class imbalance
-You still can't do RBG's first and then arenas for a cap, while Blizzard stated this would be the case
-Crowd Chooses You being extremely abusable and bugged out
-Server transfer removes Arena and RBG ratings
-Marks vanish because of half the abilities in the game
-MMR gaining is stupidly low, I've gained 5 MMR with 95% winloss 25 games played against teams that are within 100 of my own MMR
-Fearpathing wins or loses games
Class specific ones:
-Holypriest cant drink if Lightwell is down
-Warriors lockdown capability, there's absolutely 0 chance for a caster to cast if a decent warrior is sitting on him
-Warrior, DK and Wlock damage, it's just beyond fair
-Immortal holypaladins with the 50% CD reduction talent which gives 30sec Wall, 2.5min Bubble ect
-Fear damage treshold, I have tanked a warrior fear while warrior and wlock are hitting me without the fear breaking
-Most melee uptime, games slower now, requires more casting except that you have a melee sitting on you 24/7
-Random Hunter trap activation time, sometimes it's normal time, sometimes it's instant
-Too fuckin many ways for players to get out of CC, it was "ok" when game was fast when you could burn the CD's off quickly, but now it's just too fuckin much. Some classes become immortals, specially those who have 30sec small defensive cd's
-CC is breaking randomly
This is just quickly from the top of my head. How the fuck can this much bullshit go through PTR is beyond me.

On a slightly serious note (and not directed at Thaya because he's cool) because I feel like decent trolling has turned into some morons actually hating these kids:
Anyone able to make a decent living right out of high school doing something they love is in a seriously advantageous position in life... As long as they're smart enough to save some of it if the source of income is volatile (like with streaming).
Even if not - Sodapoppin and Reckful (and maybe the others) are probably learning valuable skills at how to present themselves, as a public persona or otherwise, and some good business and marketing skills on top of that. Not to mention the social skills involved just in handling their followers. These can be more valuable than an education. Anyone who can't see that, or thinks the popular streamers are fucking themselves over in life by streaming now instead of going to school, either has no life experience or has bought deeply into their parent's 1970's middle class road to a safe income, get married, have kids and kill yourself bullshit. The world is changing faster than the previous generation's concept of success.
I wish I had the courage to try and make even a minimum wage streaming myself playing video games. Fortunately I do have a job I enjoy (even though I don't make 6 figures) and maybe sometime in the future I'll have enough credentials that people will actually listen to my advice (but it will probably be out dated and useless by then).
These kids tried to do something good with the tools they had available to them and good on them for that. If you don't like how they did it then you should do better or shut up (or at least be clever and funny in your trolling).

why is no one worried that MVP's 6 fig attorney had her head replaced with a beehive... fuck calling the IRS we need David Sazuki in here STAT, this is the first time this species has been documented in public

I love all the speculation on what we do.
Kid took a picture of some idiot holding a piece of paper. Waste your time cuz like I said, we pay more in taxes than you make in a year.
What I was trying to express is that chance reckful titters ect, got zero money from this charity event. But what the company who ran it does with it I personally don't know.
Pls respond to what chance said. Nyanpoppin.
and no chance and I don't live here, just visiting.
None of the money we raised went to us. We don't need it. We make 6 figs on our own.
If you think talb licking titters face is bad you should see what happens off camera.
Also we might do dumb shit like that, but don't worry this house still has more rank 1 titles combined than the people in this thread.
holy moly you sound jealous. maybe you should turn on your stream and show the world your beautiful face! oh wait... or you could just show rank 1 game play. DAMN IT missed again. GG.
pls tell me how funny this was
Your one line was actually quite funny, great job.

for those of you who have been following these terrible acts of extortion, you may know who i am from reporting live on the scenes and taking the issues straight to the bad guys themselves and hitting them where it hurts: in their taxes
everyone else please observe my older pieces of work on the matter and be informed. these guys are (maybe) taking money in the name of charity and pocketing some or all (or none) of it for themselves. this is immoral (not illegal because i have no evidence) and needs to be stopped
will report back to this thread when i bust down the doors with the irs and bring these criminals to justice
my first course of action was to call the irs after i supplied them with information about these scumbags and i provided them with my contact info. they told me i didn't have enough information. this seemed fishy because despite having no evidence, i had a hunch and provided them with the twitch streams of all of the offenders as well as a link to the video. that's when it started to get bad
they told me that they would not be launching a full blown investigation. i went to other parts of the government to check up on this "save the children" organization. turns out they are a "reputable charity" with a "previous commitment to accomplishing their mission statement." typical fancy lawyer talk. i smelled somethin fishy
thats when i figured it out. nmp has been making so much money off of youtube that he bought the us government, which is why the irs wouldn't help me kick down the doors of the skill capped gaming house, and provided cover for this fake charity that reckful made to steal money that people would have donated to him if he was just streaming normally anyway
but my plan was still the same. i was going to take it to the skill capped gaming house, which is why i went down there in person to perform a citizens arrest on all of them. they were all standing outside with a big machine to print money, and they were trying to fill the whole pool with money. nmp was swimming in it, but he was drowning because he is not a very good swimmer.
i snuck up behind them and got ready to make my move with my camera phone ready to capture the action, but i got spotted and venruki threw a rock in my face. i ran away because it hurt a lot
no place is safe now. i am temporarily giving up on my quest to stop the skill capped bandits while my face heals. moral of the story, the man is keeping us down and this whole thing is one big conspiracy funded off the money nmp is making on youtube. next time i go in i will be more careful

i've said this a million times or more on my stream: unless you're streaming consistently to 5K+ viewers, you aren't making more money than any normal educated person with a job, unless you're getting extremely high donations from some rich dude from another country (in which case you should try the casino sometime)
any intelligent person should steer clear from trying to make a living off streaming. once your game of choice dies out, you are in big trouble (ie destiny who used to pull 7-8K viewers consistently or idra who used to pull 8-15K viewers consistently; both pushing ~3k on average on a good day now)
Get an education, get a stable job, build your resume, do whichever one floats your boat and enjoy your employment benefits, 401K, pension, etc because they will serve you in the long run. You don't want to be 50 years old and base your existence on whether Billy , age 17, got ahold of his mom's credit card or whether Mohammed, age 41, living in Dubai, feels generous today and wants to donate some of his wealth to you.

Hello again everyone,
I'm here with very good news today as we just found out that our disqualification has been reverted. I'm sure in no small part due to the efforts of everyone here who supported us.
I'm writing this now to thank everyone who helped us in any way, we truly appreciate it. I was overwhelmed by the responses I received in-game, over Skype and in this thread from all the people sending their regards and support, it means a great deal to me personally to have that many friends be there for me when the chips were down.
Hopefully everyone can see now that we were legitimate and that unfortunately Blizzard does sometimes make mistakes.
I'd like to give a shout to Xarkhorin, a Spanish EU game master who did more for us than any other person at blizzard with whom I spoke, he took the time to properly look into our case and it showed. Thank you.
As some of you may know by now the Rank-1 5v5 team on Tichondrius-US (Shindy, Iamzod, Thinkchair, Jyostar & myself (Kisz)) has been disqualified for allegedly participating in "fixed" arena matches.
I'm writing this post on my teammates behalf with the intention to give our side of the story and refute these claims, nothing more. I will not be crying, flaming, linking Skype logs/screenshots or inciting drama of any kind though it may be a long read. I know that the arena community is not what it once was nor do I expect to change the status quo towards online achievements because I would never be so naïve as to think that I could. For those of you who know me personally either in-game or through my stream I would like to think that you know I would never cheat to get ahead, not in real life nor online. I generally never compete in 5s, It's more often than not a corrupted mess of meaningless ddos, win trading, sniping, paid carries and other such nastiness. This time however it did mean something to me which is why I felt the need to bring this here because I can say with conviction that every single one of the games played on our 5v5 team “dont speak english” was 100% legitimate. I've spoken to the relevant people at blizzard and there is nothing that can be done to reverse the disqualification, that's not what this is about.
On the final night there were 3 other high teams queuing that we knew about from observing in-game.
Team 1; Novoz, Thugonomics, Veller, Snaregodx & Dannycarey
Team 2; Sodah, Talbadar, Venruki, Karvinen, Kollektiv & Nadagast
Team 3; Hansol, Dibz, Takenotez, Shapez & Dotatko (apologies if I misspelled any of your names, I feel like you probably don't all have “z” at the end haha)
Events as they happened from our point of view:
TLDR; We played against 2 games against 2 different teams on the final night (Hansol and Novoz) and beat them both legitimately, all parties involved know that there was no foul play and should be able to testify as such. We queued up that night not knowing who we would fight or what the outcome would be.
-We played consistently throughout the season with multiple different people, attaining and holding R1 for a significant portion of the season.
-Going into the last few weeks Team 1 overtook us and we proceeded to leap frog up in rating, eventually ending with our team at 2642 and theirs slightly lower.
-In the following days they queued up and also landed on 2642. We were tied, we accepted that with the knowledge that if any other teams were to approach that rating we would simply queue up again.
-Going into the final day of the season our teams were still equal and that night everybody was online. We knew that Team 2 was queuing and we were waiting to see how they did.
-Team 2 and Team 3 queue into each other 3(?) times and Team 2 is now approaching our rating, we decide to queue up.
-We play Team 3 and win.
-We queue up, we play Team 1 and win. Our rating is now 2673. This is where we ended at.
-Team 3 stops queuing and disbands their team. (found out about this later)
-Team 1 and Team 2 now queue against each other multiple times to try and catch up with our rating. We do not queue at this time because there is no need to until the winner of this series is decided, we had a significant lead.
Fast forward to the final hour and at that point we knew that Team 1 had beaten Team 2 and were close to our rating but we were unable to locate them in-game to check their arena rating. We decided to queue up with very little time left until the server downtime and face Team 1, we kill a member of their team but the server goes down before the game has ended, no points awarded or subtracted from either team. There was no way for us to know what their rating was, we didn't know who was higher until the next day when the armoury came up.
As my final thoughts I'd like to say that I met the Korean team through doing arena on Tich, I live in the UK, they live in Korea and we're both playing on US servers. Despite being across the world from each other, playing in three different time zones and not speaking the same language we were able to connect and enjoy WoW together, this is why I’ve always appreciated the internet and online gaming. The community is what both makes this game great and at the same time threatens it the most. I was very privileged to get to play with them, they are all great people and regardless of this disappointing outcome they earned their rank 1spot on Tichondrius playing arena how it was intended to be played by being friendly, enjoying their time playing and above all being fair and honest in the process.
I appreciate those of you who still make WoW enjoyable and thank you for taking the time to read this wall of text. Best of luck in Season 14.
P.S. It will always be harder to be kind and decent, especially online, but don't think for a second that it's not worth it. Better believe that.
