#3907592 Official 5.4 changes blog and Bleached Bones setup

Posted Donald on 03 July 2013 - 04:58 AM

can someone official tweet to these guys to get rid of the arena flags? no one wants the giant green and yellow flags on our backs, how do they help anyone, do ppl really not know who the enemy is without it?


#3871313 More 5.3 PvP Changes

idk what they're supposed to do, half of the games end in 46 seconds, the other half end in 28 minute timeout ties


#3870160 Shadow Priests nerfed

Posted Donald on 02 April 2013 - 05:52 PM

good changes. we obviously want more changes.

i mean dispersion and life swap made it very hard to kill spriests in many situations, but what does it say that we use both sometimes back to back and still die? that dmg is high enough to blow through two health bars and major CDs?

it's OP in some situations, but the more you complain about it being OP, the more insane it seems when it gets negated by other people blowing through a spriest's swap.

Top 5% is a joke just because 1900 is already top 5%...
it doesn't have to be 5%. i don't see you responding to my point about what arena participation was in TBC and why it was (super high because it was a good source of epics for all, meaning that a bottom gladiator today is better than mostly arena players whereas a bottom gladiator in TBC when the 0.5% was chosen he was better than a bunch of scrubs).

Top 1-5% with all of the BGs being combined wouldn't be that bad, though.
combining them just gets rid of the randomness that different battlegroup ladders adds to the reward.

Why would you need to increase the percentage of people that get glad.... if you are widening the amount of people that are in the battle group then the .5% grows with it, but if you increase the percentage as well, then you would be growing the eligibility exponentially.
because participation is different today than what it was back in the day like i said
the % does not "grow with it" ... 0.5% of one big BG = 0.5% of each ladder individually combined

I'm not saying they should be given away for free, but if the goal is to incite people to pvp and create a healthy competitive setting rewarding only 12 teams out of 2000+ feels a bit absurd.
the only reason it is absurd is because people felt like they had to do arena to get good gear when the 0.5% was decided. they don't do that anymore, so participation went from, say, 10,000 to 5,000. the 10,000 was made of raiders and arena players, and the 5,000 today is just arena players.

first scenario: 0.5% of 10,000 is 50 teams
second scenario: 0.5% of 5,000 is 25 teams

the only reason that the 50th team in the first scenario got glad was because there were 5,000 extra scrub PvE teams in the 1600s. today's glad is better than just PvPers. the 50th team of the second scenario is better than or equal to the 50th team of the first scenario, so they should get glad. the way to do that is to increase the from 0.5% to 1-5% (meaning 1, 2... or 5%, idk how to decide the exact number).

Either way, my point is that glad was much more accessible back then.
back to my points... = why the % should be increased.

4. Probably should allow multiple teams... e.g. starcraft system. I really see no reason why this couldn't be implemented, and make the game better.
i soooo forgot about this

yes, the arena system should work like the RBG ladder should.
you have a RBG rating and your individual rating is put on a ladder against everyone else.
you should have an RBG rating, a 2v2 rating, 3v3 rating, and 5v5 rating, and a global ladder for each.
you would be able to play with different team mates just like you are in RBGs.

Love it. Only problem though is that it would ruin R1. Maybe make the top 10 spots get the title? And hopefully the ladder would not be dominated by BG9. Theoretically there would be the same number of glad spots, but consolidating the ladder makes all the spots available to everyone so I am not sure how that would turn out.

But honestly, the best way to breathe life into this game would be to blur (or even remove, if possible) the lines between servers/battlegroups. Making it so you can do pretty much anything if you add someone on real ID is a good first step.
"Only problem though is that it would ruin R1."
one "R1" title? that's not a problem, that's the top form of competition. what we have now for "R1" is and has been forever a joke. they do the TR every year and the top teams are always the people that play on BG9, so the consolidated ladder would be "dominated" by "BG9" players, but that line would get blurred, the best players from everywhere would play each other all the time. overall skill would increase since you only get better by playing better people, which is why people go to BG9 in the first place (greater competition = greater training).

they should probably make glad top 1-5%, because when they made it top 0.5% it was TBC and arena participation was huge, very much due to the fact that EVERYONE arena'd because epics were actually hard to come by, so even little retard s3 challenger donjewberg could be 1700 for 3 months for his arena points and epics to get enough gear to do karazhan and own people in blues in BGs. i'll tell you how consolidating the ladder would turn out for the top 1-5% - exactly how it should.

they understandably didn't have the tech to blur the lines between servers and BGs before, but now they do and should be, especially with real ID raiding and PvP.

when people lose and look at the damage they took as if to blame the game for OP damage instead of thinking about how to play better

#3867173 New Shado Pan Arena and Blade's Edge changes

Posted Donald on 26 March 2013 - 08:56 PM

ancient problems that blizz has "miraculously" addressed with in MoP or is about to address:
- arena players having to raid for best arena gear
- certain arena map imbalances
- 2200 weps/gear mattering too much in arena

ones they have left:
- arena players having to RBG for the best arena gear because of RBG point reward
- end of season rewards are stagnant/arbitrary/outdated
- battlegroup ladder system needs to be consolidated
- regional Q system needs to be consolidated
- real ID arena charters
- the leave battle option next to enter battle when the Q pops............. laughable
