In Topic: A discussion about cheaters in general.

15 May 2016 - 03:59 AM


So, apart from arming ourselves up with patience, is there anything else we can do to prevent people like this playing this game?

In game atm, unless your streaming all your games and sending super detailed hack reports with video evidence via email then no. The report function is nearly pointless and as far as I'm aware blizz isn't tracking reaction times in pvp.

As a game though, they wanted addon creators so opened up a lot of info to the players which now gets abused. It's why sc2 had map hacks (replay system) and why league won't introduce replays.
Then their weak ass stance on it all was the final nail, 72 hour ban for cheating? Entire thing was a fucking joke, people have been getting away with it for years and it's so ingrained into them by now nothing short of finding a way to perma ban every account they open will stop them doing it. Then when they do find someone who's been dumb enough to get caught what? 4 times? with months if not years between each wave they can still keep their bnet account and half the shit they value.

Their stance on Overwatch is the right one if they follow through. No chances, just perma ban anyone caught from the beginning. WoW's pretty fucked though, you just accept that you'll run into people cheating (with surprising frequency) and if it pisses you off too much then the games not worth your time anymore.

In Topic: Bias And Favoritism On Twitch

Whompin explained it better but in short:

Gross was partnered with twitch. Slander/defamation of character like that over such a media not only opens up himself to being sued but also twitch as a company. Who ultimately has a responsibility to the content that goes out.
If they'd done nothing and he'd continued throwing out random accusations eventually getting himself in trouble you can be damn sure with the resulting coverage it got people would be asking why the hell twitch didn't step in and stop it.

Also the whole twitter issue, if your affiliated with a company (sponsored/work for them etc) and you go and say some stupidly hateful/racist etc shit ANYWHERE they have the right to end that relationship. It DOES reflect badly on their image if they partner with morons.

In Topic: On vanilla PvP

01 May 2016 - 01:01 AM


it has to do with people having this deluded thinking that vanilla was so great because of the amount of skill it took when it had nothing to do with why vanilla was so fun

Vanilla was "artificially" tough because the correct gear wasn't hurled at everyone from the start. If you pulled a 2-3 mobs a few levels higher than you it was an actual threat... People didn't know the correct pathing through zones, you'd run into areas which would destroy you. You'd try shit you know your character wasn't geared for whilst learning to kite/cc etc to make it work because it was an actual challenge and you couldn't be arsed running back in a couple of levels.
Ofc vanilla now looks simple, no-one who has spent years on this game and now has 80+ optimised keybinds/macro's is going to struggle with anything vanilla throws at them yet there's some nostalgia value and it's pretty chill for solo play. The main point though is it's a hell of a lot more entertaining than the joke that is live solo play.

In Topic: When and Why have you started and stopped WoW ?

29 April 2016 - 02:56 AM

Started in Vanilla, a friend got me into it when i went to visit for a couple of days to drink/smoke/check out his new place etc. Sat up on his pc when everyone had crashed and after a couple of nights leveling decided it was worth the purchase.
Sadly the game i was playing previously was going the way WoW is now, slowing down massively, finding less people online to do stuff with etc so i spent more and more time on WoW instead.
Enjoyed bg's at the x6-9 levels, Ended up in a raiding guild in TBC, Wanted to get into pvp properly in wrath so ended up going resto (lack of healers). Gave up raiding in Cata and I've slowly been losing interest for the last couple of years. Not cancelled sub yet but it'll happen as soon as the few remaining people i know finally leave.

In Topic: [Legion] Feral SR vs Incarn

03 April 2016 - 08:58 AM

Doubt SR will be used. There's too much maintenance keeping rip up (needed for armour ignore and chance at ashmane's) and a low duration SR before you can attempt to burst. It might just be better in PvE but in PvP when any peels are going to shit on your next burst attempt it feels bad.

Genuinely enjoy the Soul (got buffed to 30 energy return)/Elune's/Moment build - You always feel like you can burst and if you grab 5 combo points for a rip, energy pool then have either tiger's/omen proc (new omen talent is crazy)/arti ability or elunes available, you'll be chunking them with a few heavy ferocious bites. Feels fast and always useful (+ the extra PS procs are good).

Sad truth is though Incarn just blows everything away. Rake still gets it's stun during it, shred hit hard now so the 20% extra damage and double chance to crit actually kicks the crap out of things during Incarn (spammable 200k+ crits every global) oh and the 50% reduced energy cost from berserk is baked in and now lasts 30 seconds.... They managed to make it stronger than the WoD version.

Bleed builds seem somewhat underwhelming as well compared to maxing FB focused ones.

Other than that, the balance affinity giving 5 yards to every melee ability is fun but that's probably due to having shit MS on the alpha servers and actually being able to hit stuff with it.
