#3936758 Tryhards of Season 13

Posted Bigmoran on 10 September 2013 - 09:01 AM

This is a really untimely occasion for me to post this as I'm recieving tons of criticism in other threads but I think it would be a nice abd refreshing to collect all the R1 drama in one thread. I wrote most of this thread in advance, so some of the information might be dated.

Hey ladies and gentlemen, this type of thread hasn't surfaced on Arena Junkies in quite some time and seeing as this HOPEFULLY will be the last season for generally scum-baggery, I hope my post gets the attention it deserves. Most of my information from below comes from conversations about US ladders and focuses heavily on things I've heard through the grapevine. If you are a friend of mine and are on this list, no need to fret, this list is but a post in jest, and one that I hope will not ruin friendships (pls forgive me).

DK: Vigarista. Although not known by many, this Brazilian backpeddling superstar has made an appearance on a few BGs this season (namely Rampage, Retal, and Ruin). He seems to follow with the other Brazilian gods, playing PHD with the likes of Rynd and Beilgatta. For whatever reason, his Retal team decided to que LSD at the same time Rositajones was queing shatterplay. This led to a devastrating tank. Vigarista,  who was previously on the roster, backpeddled away into darkness to never be seen again.

DRUID: Once whipped by popular streamer Bamfxo, Lickerz, has been a realiable asset to the 5v5 bracket. Often playing with Kaska, Lickerz is present on five different BGs, all in the pursuit of the Tyrannical gladiator title.

Honorable mention go to Coolbears, the 15 year old Jewish Jungle-cleaver who literally combined rosters with himself after getting farmed on Ruin.
(http://us.battle.net...ns One African/) I don't actually know how many BG's he is on but I would venture to say it's more than the amount of hair he has on his armpits.

HUNTER: A prolific poster on this website, the winner of our try hard hunter goes to Reedz. Playing on at least three BGs, Reedz quickly became master of the 5v4 and 5v3 brackets. Unfortunately for Reedz, his razer naga dream team took some devastating losses on the Sunday night before season end, leaving only a trail of tears, a discarded box of Hot Pockets, and a 19 Button Expert Gaming Mouse that can be yours for the low price of $68.99. Merc out.

MAGE: Also known as SJ, probably short for his Sloppy Job at playing fire, the try hard mage of this season is Spicychopz! This kermit the frog voiced washed up bong is playing on five different BG's with little to no competition.

Sharing this award is Jahmilli, the highest rated player in World of Warcraft. Jahmilli was able to take time out of his role in the upcoming movie Insidious: Chapter 2 to get some titles. He climbed to the top of the ladder on a few BGs, patching together a Frankenstein lineup of  Goonies to 2800+.

Honorable mention goes to Rositajones. This flamboyant Living Bomb god has somehow convinced Jahmilli that he is worth carrying. He is playing on 2-3 different BG's going for R1. Though a tip of the hat to his team for achieving the highest 3v3 rating in the world.

MONK: There really is no try hard monk that I can think of. Dannycarrey is undoubetly the best monk that currently plays but I think by default this award should go to Jordons, the previous ring leader of the Cataclysm wintrading cartel (Jordons, Perry, Nevz). This season he will be adding another red helmet to his collection on Arena Junkies. It is sad that he has retired his days of controlling every BG, though I think his understudies (namely Kaska) have done a fair job of carrying on his legacy.

PALADIN: Gsgsgsgsgs. This emotionally troubled helpless romantic has found himself chasing as many rank 1's as he does girls. He is currently on the Rank 1 3v3 on two BGs, and the rank 1 5v5 on three BG's. His strategy is undoubtedly "Get rank 1, get laid."

PRIEST: The priest category has multiple winners. The reason for this is that priests seem to be essential for success in the 5v5 bracket. It is also the class in which we see the highest ratio of scum. It is said that 5% of the world population is related to Ghenghis Khan. By similar logic, I'm inducing that 5% of the priest population is related to Jordons. Carrying on his legacy of tryhardedness and wintrading genetics is Seestraighz, the sleepless superstar of the 5v5 bracket who is playing on five different BGs; Aetarius, the hopeful Aussie whose dreams have been repetedly crushed by resets (he's now going for R1 on two BGs); Exumbra, the autistic bottomfeeder turned slightly better than bottomfeeder who literally transferred an entire team (http://us.battle.net...5/mort de rire/) just out of spite of Seestraightz (http://us.battle.net...s_for_u_steven/); and Anapolis, the priest healing the aforementioned Coolbears.
Honorable mention to Save, but with a hair style that marvelous, he deserves exclusion from the main list.

ROGUE: Try hard rogue goes to my friend Fhos, who is playing on at least two BGs in hopes of the prestigious Tyrannical Gladiator.

SHAMAN: Currently receiving his PHD in Computer Science while finishing up his internship at Cisco systems, Kaska has somehow managed to infiltrate almost every single BG. Though the print on his Alt and TAB keys is surely reduced to cheeto dust and sweat by now, he still manages to be one of the most feared shadowrealmers in this community.

Honorable mention to Adversa - this newcomer to the Rank 1 scene is a strong candidate for S13 Most Improved Player. His teams never fail to get wins in the clutch; the force of his heals often causing a player of the opposing team to inexplicably log off.

WARLOCK: The obvious choice for warlock would be Rawkus, but I will spare him the humiliation and assign the title to Dotaphd, who hopefully is getting an actual PHD seeing as the debt on his mom's credit card from WoW related expanses is probably more than the average cost of grad school.

WARRIOR: There really were no try hard warriors this season. I almost gave this title to Casval, seeing as he was on the most BGs of any warrior this season, but instead I give the title to previous Rank 1 KFC hero, Halcyons. This guy's team spam q'd the last week of the season, falling short of Rank 1 by nearly 150 points.

Most pathetic: Though I am somewhat biased in handing this one out, Exumbra is surely the most pathetic person of this season. As I mentioned he had partaken in transferring an entire team to two different BGs to try and screw over Seestraightz (costing time and money in the name of revenge). Not only that but his 5v5 team on Ruin literally had a scouting schedule. It was confirmed by multiple people that he assigned members of his team different time slots to scout our server to see when we would que. Aside from that he claimed to have "eyes" on our server. When confronted about it he said that has a few people on Real ID from Bleeding Hallow horde who notify him and his team when any one of us log on.

<<< [2:40:10 PM] Aric (Exum): i have 6 teams with 2.3k mmr looking to snipe u

Best rating camper: Sodez and Mackenzie. Though Mackenzie has since tanked from his days at Rank 1 Bloodlust, Sodez has topped the charts on BG9 for months now. He sits on his slot from the $40 throne of Honey Bunches of Oats encrusted Target Brand chair at the gaming house. Luckily some Mastermind and his prodigy rogue were able to climb the ladder to an impressive 2840 rating.

Posted Image

Honorable mention goes to Cyprix, Elfxhunter, and Wizkhalifax who have literally been sitting their rating since a month into the season.

Boldest wintrader: Navajitas - Hailing for the land of Tacos y Burros, this sloth looking Feral Droid has made numerous attempts to climb to Rank 1 on Vindication. He was recently stripped of all his rating and gear but luckily had an honorable buddy by his side to get back his cherished Tyrannical gear (GG Tyranical Conquest Achievement). Since he has been reset he has disbanded his second climb team, claiming to do so because the win ratio looked bad.

Biggest virgin award goes to me. This is probably the most pathetic thing I've ever invested so much time into. I need to keep my rep/post ratio above a 4.0; this is the only way I know how.
Oh, and a special shoutout to Khi, Plat, Krystof/Dhale FFXIV God, Keklyz, Vexthizzface, Toph, Smulch, Vinny,  Ayra, Hildegard Sprigglespruxx, Not Reliuna, Gabe, Ruin/Retal, youtube.com/bobrosslol, Poppy, Thelfx, Deprive, Splatted-o, Bubbez, Rambojohnny.

Replace it with a Season Conquest Cap

So it goes somthing Like this
Week1- 2200
week5-11000   And so on

So for the people who got the xpac late or people who want to start playing in week 11 of the season will have a 24200 Cap Will people think this is fair for people playing from the very start I wouldn't think so because they had the option to increase there Rating Cap making them still have a lead in gear over the newbies and all the late comer's have is a Small boost and the player still has to Cap those Point making the ladder alot more active for people coming back to the game or people who decided to Reroll a new class Mid season

Now the Pve Comin might Have a out cry How new dinged 90's in full pvp gear are joining there LFR and such and the only fix i could think of is maybe putting in some sort 5 week Hold untill the system kicks in

All and all i think this system would bring alot of Players to arenas/RBG Keeping it more active

#3828210 The honor system is in need of a remake

Posted Poseyx on 28 December 2012 - 04:57 AM

Theres a really productive way of farming honor, i like to think of it as my buddy it farms honor while you sleep, are in class, or whatever you are doing and all it costs is pocket change!!

#3826339 does anyone even fake cast anymore?

Posted zzyzzyzz on 23 December 2012 - 03:20 AM

when ur at full hp doing the fake cast dance vs a war/rogue/dk whatever it is. are u even fake casting anymore? im starting to think that

A- the player im fighting is so horrible and unpredictable that its impossible to get a read on his kicks (if he even knows when to kick or not)

B- hes a master of the mind games and an amazing player that psychs you out by not kicking things he should and then randomly kicking things he should at a later date

ill spend a good 2 seconds fake casting only to cast and the guy doesnt kick. should i say F it and just hardcast everything unless im low?

it seems stupid but im sure some of you have fought this player whos kicking patterns are random. much like a bad war is scarier to cyclone then a good one simply because all game he hasnt noticed your clones then he randomly does and cost u the game vs KFC

There needs to be something that allows you to catch up to gear faster. Its so annoying being 3~4 weeks behind in gear and always fighting teams who are way more geared than you. Its even worse when this game completely relies on gear rather than anything else. It totally discourages people from even doing arena who are super behind on gear. I don't even want to join arenas on my alt because I know i'll get 1 shot before a warrior even pops his cooldowns.

Completely agree with this post

Agree with all, in WotLK (mid S6ish?) when i finally got my priest to 80 i managed to get 2,1k+ in 2s in blue crafted pvp set + green/blue lvling items. (with a fully geared rogue mate, but anyway you get my points. Now if you have full blue honor gear as a healer you get globald....) The difference between arena and honor gear is too big.

wtf who is complaining about instant mind blast/devo plague, I think spriest damage is fine, don't really have any problems with those mechanics at all.  If there is anything to do with spriests is tweak life swap and (maybe) md?

I feel like this happens every game vs a spriest that instant mind blast > dps and silences healer. I try to play conservative knowing that the priest isnt casting and that the feral has no gap closers but Die to instant cast abilities.

#3819319 Frost Bomb hotfix nerfed oh and warriors too

Posted saffie on 12 December 2012 - 03:26 AM

I think the frostbomb thing might be an overnerf, I mean come on, %50? Its like they don't even think about things when they nerf them, they just blow out a number from their asses.

It should have been more like "oh yeah we have tested frost bomb and its hitting too much right now its taking this much of someones hp for  this much cast time, we have tried it out and found that on a full pvp geared character it should do this much damage in a shatter for it to be fair and worth casting", but its more like "Lets nerf frostbomb people are whining about it, how does %50 sound? Good, enough work for today, see you tomorrow."

#3817530 US gemming resilience EU gemming damage, why the difference?

Posted Polizei on 08 December 2012 - 09:10 PM

Because US players enjoy the more casual playstyle which comes from the relaxed full resilience gemming, you might even take a hamburger during the game since nobody is going to kill you during those 2 seconds it takes an average American to eat that burger. EU players are more brainhurt because they like to be butthurt and go to forums and cry about trivial things such as when dying in global is no more fun (but they all agree killing somebody in global is fun and that shouldnt be affected).

Cultural difference - EXPLAINED!

I've done it  more than once but usually leaves your healer in a bad place with them thinking you've got another block so they misjudge eating a CC/holding back heals for a second thinking you're gonna block!

Thanks to the brilliant PvP power buff on weapons, you have to wait 3 weeks until you're able to do any kind of damage on a new character, then you get to murder everyone in a few globals.

World of Warcraft is fun ! :)
