#3897987 Finding partners with no achievements

Posted AcerMVP on 11 June 2013 - 01:45 PM

There's three things I require when I play with people:

A: Synergy: Try playing a few games with out skype. See how far you can go without using skype. I've hit 2400 with out using skype and when we started to use skype, the synergy felt like it was there, because of how well we knew each others play style. We eventually hit 2783 back in s7. Remember synergy requires you to be focused as well. Play with out addons telling you what to do every second. Watch the game, see when the person uses their trinket. Watch your team mate and peel for them when it's needed. This way you learn how to play with a partner you haven't even talked to yet.

B: Communication: Now that you guys know you have a nice a synergy going, learn to communicate. Do a few bgs before you join an arena. Talk to each other, find out a little more about your partner. See how well he communicates with you and try to adjust to each others voice and learn to listen/speak.

This is something that I still love about this game. The social aspect of it. I've met some really cool people in the past that I still keep up with till this day. My very first partner from S1, I still talk to him till this day and we still play together from time to time. We're actually great friends now.

C: Don't care about winning. The more you care about winning, the less fun it is. If you win great! Be happy, rejoice, but never let that be the motivation to playing a video game. The motivation should always be to have fun. When you have fun with the game, it brings positive thoughts. Positive thoughts mean positive results.

And that's how I find partners.

#3897223 LoL developer about WoW

Posted Thaya on 10 June 2013 - 08:05 AM

1) He thinks shit went wrong at WotLK when they started making easier modes and encounters, for raid content to become more accessible. Exclusivity was key, to give players a feeling that there's more stuff they didn't see, to make the game feel "endless" and more immersive as a RPG. He explains it with the difference of changes that players want and need [that's the context of the thread this is posted in] - players wanted to see more content, but the feeling of exclusivity was needed (but not acknowledged by the hungry/vocal players, and ultimately the developers). Reading or listening to player feedback lets you see only the wants, it's hard to take decisions as a game developer because almost nobody voices the need - that's also why developer to player communication is necessary, to explain why changes being made are needed. Development is about balancing between these two.
2) This has little to do with balance or difficulty of content, and his reply to people complaining about game difficulty is this: "that's the lens of your personal values - you believe your values of game-playing (skill mastery) is the reason all players should play the game. Many people play the same games for different reasons." The same applies to changes like 40man raids and others. Furthermore, only a minority of players even engage in raiding at all, but even that lost it's exclusivity. He's disagreeing with the design philosophy at a higher level than things like these.
3) He respects Blizzard and GC in particular for doing all the dev->player feedback almost single-handedly, and says WoW is a well-crafted game, he just disagrees with some of the design philosophy and doesn't play it himself any longer since ~WotLK. This isn't a case of #shotsfired.

This is through my understanding, and I happen to agree with all of this. This exact subject was raised and explained many times before, anyway, even back when they introduced normal/heroic modes people already said that "I didn't see everything yet" is a much stronger motivator than "I want heroic ilvl gear". Sunwell is largely considered to be the best instance in WoW, ironically only 1% of players have seen it - a lot more just talked about it. The potential adventure was much more important ("needed") than Blizzard acknowledged, and they introduced LFR on top of it to make things even worse.

It's appalling that a game that's supposedly driven by content is spoonfeeding all of it's content as soon as characters reach a trivial gear level (LFR entry req). Heroic-only bosses are a bandaid, if anything, they just highlight this problem.

or maybe it can only be cast on Beast's and not just say "Immune" when u cast it on something else?

You can't cast it on anything but beasts. You can't precast it - only usable once you're in beast form(otherwise it says invalid target).
Oh btw don't even complain about it - you can't be polymorphed nor rooted so...

#3894426 New Debuff: Bitch Sickness

Posted Colard on 03 June 2013 - 07:55 AM

Retard sickness : when you're playing 3v3 Arena and spam icelance like a retard the whole game, you contract Retard Sickness. After thirty seconds you get kicked from the game unless you stop playing like a retard.

#3894424 New Debuff: Bitch Sickness

Posted Spinmove on 03 June 2013 - 07:42 AM

They already have Resurrection Sickness in this game so they need to add a new debuff called Bitch Sickness.

When you're playing 2v2 Arena and run like a bitch the whole game, you contract Bitch Sickness. After thirty seconds you get kicked from the game unless you stop playing like a bitch.

Bitch sickness

Thanks for reading.

Blizzard really needs to fix the damage our pets take or buff pet rez some how. Teams are currently exploiting the shit of how weak hunter pets are and just killing them constantly. The game shouldn't be played like this at all when you face a BM hunter.

http://us.battle.net...ic/8892049337#1 Please support this thread because something needs to change as far as our pets survival.

Why is Gateway a shorter cast than pet rez?

I think you meant hunters pets kill way too easily a simple mistake it's np.

#3888578 Playlist Relaunch

Posted Claynz on 18 May 2013 - 03:56 PM

There have been a big request for me to relaunch the playlist after the domain expired 5 months ago. So just wanna make this thread to give a heads up that it's back.

I wanna keep this to my old thread i don't wanna flow the general discussion but hopefully i will receive less PM's with spam "When it will come back/ where is it?"

A lot of work left but it's going somewere, the new design is a lot cleaner and add-free i earn nothing by doing this. I just like enjoying finding new songs/remixes that is not mainstream and the feedback from you guys were amazing.

The old site hit half million views on 14 months.

And the feedback from AJ & WoW community is awesome so any feedback i would like to have on this old thread, link to playlist is also there:

Stupidest post I have seen ever. An equally skilled hunter to a mage cant chain CC like a mage can
Nice joke. Stop posting, ty.

Put it down on paper

Intimidation (3sec) -> trap (8sec) -> scatter (4sec) -> silence (3sec) -> readiness -> scatter (2sec) -> silence (1.5sec) -> Web stun (3sec) -> trap (8sec) -> (swap pet) lullaby (4sec) -> (swap pet to basilisk pet) -> stampede wasp (not on DR with anything in-game) stun (2sec) -> pet clone (3sec) -> (swap to 2nd shale spider) -> web stun (3sec) -> Intimidation (1.5sec) -> silence (3sec) -> scatter (4sec) -> trap (8sec)

Ran out of paper, sry.

3 + 8 + 4 + 3 + 2 + 1.5 + 3 + 8 + 4 + 2 + 3 + 3 + 1.5 + 3 + 4 + 8 = 61 seconds

That's 61 seconds of non-stop cc from the hunter only, without taking into account stuff like 8sec disengage webs or knockbacks. I'd like to see your paper of a mage cc'ing someone for 61 seconds non-stop. I wish you good luck.

#3883176 Mages the Overlords of 5.3

Posted Nightmonkey on 02 May 2013 - 11:24 AM

Make a separate thread for bitching about hunters, we're bitching about mages in here.

Mages are way too strong right now.  They actually have it all, great defense, absurd damage, R1 mobility, and outstanding control over the other team through novas, sheeps, stuns, slows, and ranged interrupt/silence.

BW should also be removed from game. Class fixed.
Beastial wrath should be reverted to what it was in s6 - when the game was somewhat "balanced".

-Not resetable by readiness
-Not usable in cc
-Gives you and your pet a 8-10sec immunity to cc
-2minute CD

This would be a good change for overall arena balance, and it'd promote the core playstyle of BM hunters. It'd also remove the problem of hunters having "3 pvp trinkets".
