you are literally the dumbest nigga on AJ.
starting to think you bought ur glad / wintraded now, gonna be interesting checking ur armory after titles are given.
Could you PLEASE stop posting here soon?
Getting so tired everytime I see you posting that someone is boosted, ebayer, whatever, when you bought all your titles / added a random rogue who isn't yours. Before you got banned you had glad on mage aswell, LOL. Everyone knows you're boosted, and the only reason you even broke 2.2 this season (2230 max LOL), is because you played dogcomb tripple dps and won some lucky games against high rated shaman lock x teams.
Even though I know it wasn't a wintrade, I'd be more concerned about your 27-1 vs a single team on Reckoning, than about me. I've no idea if you've had an email, but I would assume that you will for that and you'll need to contact them and explain.
Main thing this video highlights is current sad state of 2s. I was really disappointed to see how basic and easy the play style is at the high end 2s level to pull off kills.
There zero impressive cc chains or any really amazing cc coordination.
vs hunt/pal, all you needed to win was a double fear on hunter + pal. Not to mention you were on sewers, hunter's worst map. You got an extremely lucky fear path, both hunter and pal went opposite was out of LOS, and your mage globaled the hunter. You chipped in for maybe 10k with holy nova.
vs spriest/rsham, video of a practically non-viable comp compared to mage/priest, and the only clips you show are when the priest is already OOM. Grats for mages having endless mana I guess? Not sure what you did here except keep the priest OOM.
Vid is perfect evidence of why removing glad from 2s was a good idea.
spriest/rsham is a viable comp, and does pretty well against mage/priest. Practically non-viable comp?? LOL. It's played nearly the same as lock/sham which is boringly overpowered, plus you have mana burn which has always been OP in 2s.
I thought it was a great video for its intended purpose: to help learning disc priests get better. Why is it the only people flaming the video are non-glads or glads from 2s? He took all his clips from a series of like 5 games like he said, it was everyday play, not mega godly moments captured over months of footage. seriously gtfo haters, AJ needs more vids like this.
Hello, my name is Merkx, and today I will show you how to stop DDoS/other internet problems. (If you know you're being DDoSd skip ahead to the bold)
1) If your internet is working for some applications and not others (i.e. skype works but WoW is lagging out) then you are NOT being DDoS'd. In most cases it means the DNS server you use is not working properly (comcast DNS servers are shit). If you have not set a DNS server then you are probably using your Internet Service Providers IP. I recommend switching to Google's or OpenDNS's server. Here's how:
Mine is set to google's DNS servers, you can use whichever you want.
2) DDoS. You know you're being DDoSd if you gradually begin to lag on all programs using the internet and then disconnect from them. Sudden disconnects usually do not involve DDoS. People that DDoS you usually obtain your IP through skype or twitch tv and the amount of people that can DDoS you on the spot is surprisingly low **Do not go to DDoS as the first thing you blame when you disconnect from WoW**
But here is how to stop DDoS if you know you're being DDoSd:
Log into your router > find your mac address (should look like this http://i.imgur.com/6X5oc.png)> change one of the numbers to another number > save your settings and restart your modem
Don't change your mac address too many times per day as it might cause some problems with your ISP but this should change your IP making it impossible for the DDoSer to target you unless he/she gets your new IP (through skype/twitch/etc). Note: Doing ipconfig/release or restarting your modem/router alone will not stop DDoS.
Further Protection: If your attacker keeps finding your IP after changing your mac address try getting a VPN program like HotSpot Shield to "spoof" your IP after you have changed it.
Edit: More stuff to spoof your IP (use whichever lags you the least) http://www.dreamvpn.us/index.php https://www.torproject.org/
There seems to be a disconnect between popular opinion of Mages and top Mages opinions on how strong the class is right now. I think a lot of it has to do with the very weird state CC is in right now.
I think the fact that magical non-CC debuffs (like Warlock dots for example) are in the same category of debuff as magical CC is what's causing this disconnect and also really hurting the game.
To dispel any non-CC magical debuff, you need an instant cast dispel because they aren't super important, but they are nice to remove. Think of stuff like Warlock DoTs, Faerie Fire, a Frostbolt snare, etc. These are strong effects, but they are not close to the power of magical CC effects. When you apply this same instant dispel (that's perfectly fine when it dispels non-CC effects) to magical CC, which is far more important, it becomes very overpowered at higher levels of play.
At low levels of play you can CC DPS effectively with magical CC, because for any number of reasons (team coordination, healer skill, etc) the CC will actually stick for a reasonable amount of time. But at high levels of play dispel is so strong that casting magical CC on people that aren't the healer is almost a waste of time, (see http://www.arenajunk...ad.php?t=193267 for a longer explanation of this) unless you have a bunch of debuffs to cover it, like Warlocks do (and even then it's often much weaker than it should be unless you cast UA first and they don't dispel Fear first try). Now, normally I have no problem with abilities scaling with skill. That's a good, healthy thing. The problem is that dispel scales too well with skill. It's too powerful at shutting down magical CC (Mages especially since they have a harder time getting up cover debuffs, but also stuff like Psychic Scream, HoJ, Freezing Trap, etc) at high levels of skill.
I think it would be good if they changed magical CC to a different category and gave every healer spec a 'Dispel CC' ability with a 1.5-2.0s cast time, and a very significant mana cost.
Dispelling CC and dispelling other magical effects are so different in level of strength that I think it's difficult to balance being able to dispel both with a single spell. Mashing CC in with other magic effects causes all sorts of bad things to happen, like:
CC cast on the healer/dispeller becomes far far more useful than CC cast on the rest of the team.
Fear being better than Poly against non-Shaman teams because Warlocks can protect Fear with random other debuffs much more easily than Mages can.
Arms race between dispellers and CCers.
Shadow Priest teams can be very difficult to CC simply because of the power of 2x instant dispel.
RNG on which debuff you'll get. Getting the CC first can win you the game but hitting something else first can lose it.
Maybe a 1.5-2s cast CC remover (would remove most non-physical CCs, Hex, Poly, Fear, Entangling Roots, Novas, Freezing Trap, etc) would be overpowered for DPS or overpowered for healers. But what we have now is a really bad situation, and it's an absolutely huge part of top Mages complaining, I think, and rightfully so.
Assuming this were to happen Mages would need to lose some of their Novas as well (maybe let them keep the real Frost Nova spell and the pet Freeze ability, but remove the rest of their roots). But I think most Mages would be happy trading a few roots for CC that sticks for longer than 1 second unless used on the healer.
he camps litterly every low level on my server hes killed preety much any lvl 30 thats ever been to STV so hes kind of commonly known on my server. Preety Ironic that you call that hypocritical if I was going to compare that to something hypocritical it would be maybe sum1 named after some terrible pop music girl maybe with a sig to go along with it u know something like that.
Male blood elf rogue with an anime sig and 'z' at the end of his name lmao.
Keep us up-to-date with this nerds Twitter though, it's what I would do if I was bored too ;)
