I mean $225,000 is a ton of money. That is life changing/altering sums of cash.

An idiot with 225k $ at the end of the day is still an idiot. You'd be surprised how little 225k $ amounts to at the end of the day, and unless you funnel it all into personal education, you were better off not earning the said money anyway.

It might seem huge on paper, but it really isn't.

By the end of your post, any apology has been lost to me in an orgy of bad grammar and irrelevant excuses. I've known you for several seasons, and, I can say firmly, without question. You. Are. Full. Of. Shit.

Assorted Thoughts:

1. Get a job.

2. You cover the base of your excuse by highlighting your "serious" online relationship at 18, which, compared to others, makes a Tinder fling look like a wedding vow.

3. Enough with the euphemisms. Stop painting the problem as merely playing "god comp", and, start admitting that you had a ringer pilot the account. How is it "scummy" to queue an overpowered composition in a cash prize tournament? Is it somehow more honorable to fight a suspenseful, close match? If so, Skill-Capped played it wrong last year when their Blizzcon winning team was the equivalent to Mike Tyson knocking out opponents with his first swing.

I could continue to slice off your head verbally and serve it on a plate for the jury of ArenaJunkies, but I'll show mercy because at least you pretend morality, which, is a notch above most socially marginalized rejects in this community.
Trying too hard to be reedwise.

Posted Takenotezz on Yesterday, 04:48 AM

Hey, i'm Takenotezz, also known as Jake to many people. I played RPS in the ESL tournament with Roasty and Wizk. Wizk and I have had the highest RPS in the world for the last 3 seasons; with Smooch(Jahmilli) , Roasty, and Pikaboo. Although our comp isn't too strong, especially in a tournament setting, we decided to play it anyways. Our very first matchup was against a 2500 Monk TSG. This comp is a direct counter to RPS. We beat this team , a long with many other higher rated Monk TSGs on live. We felt confident in playing vs them, and we won 3-0. Our next matchup was against Mw monk, Ww monk, Destro warlock. This comp is also what seems to be a direct counter; anyone who PvPs at a high level and understands RPS's weaknesses/strengths would see why, We ended up losing 1-3. Keep in mind this team was not eligible to qualify; the ww monk (steven/balance) and the destro lock (ald/poutineboy) did not meet blizzard's blizzcon requirements. This sucked for us, because we faced two direct counters in our first two matchups, even though we won the first matchup, it still was very unlucky. We are now in the losers bracket, and face a destro MLS , which we destroy very quickly. Score ended up being 3-0. Our next comp to face was Monk Beast Cleave, which is also a direct counter to RPS. We actually stand 0 chance vs a decent Monk Beast Cleave. Once again, anyone who PVPs at a high level understands why. So at this point, it was obvious we were going to lose, because even if we beat Tosan/Twosticks/Diggles Monk Beastcleave, our next team to face was Glinks/Lifebloom/Mendi's Monk Beastcleave. Glink's team was better than Tosan's, and we would lose vs Tosan's team. I accepted the fact that we were going to lose, and the next day when we were scheduled to play, this idea of running godcomp into them came up. I was not okay with this at all, at first. Anyone who knows me could say that I would be the last person to be associated with something like this.  For those of you who don't know, I've been dating an amazing girl who I met via WoW/Twitch named Elizabeth. I'm crazy for this girl, she's crazy for me. (I mean who wouldn't?) We met online, so distance is a huge problem for us. She lives in Maryland in the middle of nowhere, and I live in San Diego, California. We have met in person twice, once when i flew to see her in Maryland for a week, and the other when she flew to California to be with me for 10 days. Anyone who has been in a serious relationship knows how hard it is to be far away / not able to see your significant other for a long period of time. I havent seen her in about two months. I'm only 18 and I dont have loads of money to be able to see her as much as I would like to. When I found out that regionals were going to be in New York, and that if I went I would be able to see her, I wanted to do whatever it took to make that happen. If was a free trip to see the girl of my dreams who I've been missing so much. The next time I was supposed to see her was blizzcon, so this would be an oppurtunity to see her a month before blizzcon, for free. I agreed to playing godcomp on our team so that we could easily make it to regionals so that I could get what I wanted, to see my girlfriend. What I did was extremely wrong and unfair, but Elizabeth means a lot more to me. We played godcomp and easily won and made it to regionals. I felt awful after we had won; it was cheating, there was tons of posts/drama, people were mad at me, etc. Although we cheated, I think that specifically Wizk deserves to go to regionals more so than the teams that would have gone if we would have lost. Wizk is the best spriest in the game currently, and has held #1 priest all season long. Any top rated player can agree with this statement. Even though tons of people dislike Wizk, everyone will admit that he is extremely skilled. I feel that our team had a much higher skill level than the teams that we had to face to make it to regionals. (the two monk beastcleaves + the godcomp) Although this is true, we cheated and should definitely be disqualified. After the posts/forums blew up, a lot of my friends messaged me asking for details and other things, but If I wanted to see Elizabeth, I would have to keep quiet. This was the hardest thing for me, everyone calling me names, me losing the respect of many people/players, our team being frowned upon. I wanted to tell everyone the reasoning behind why I thought playing godcomp was acceptable, but I couldn't. We ended up getting disqualified, which sucked at first because there goes the opportunity to see Elizabeth, but it was also a relief because all the stress was going away. Here is where the apologies come in.

First off, I want to apologize most importantly to Chanimal, also known as Adam. Adam has been my biggest inspiration in WoW, I love him as a player, I love him as a person. I feel like I let him down the most; he messaged me asking why I allowed what happened to happen, and there was nothing I could tell him. He is one of the coolest, nicest, funniest guys I have ever met; IRL and online. I apologize to you Adam, hopefully this doesn't change much.

Secondly, I would like to apologize to Jahmilli. Jahmilli was accused of playing the mage in our godcomp, and took so much disrespect from people in his stream. People automatically accused him for doing something that he took absolutely zero part in. What happened caused a reaction and ended up with Jahmilli losing fans and the respect of some of the WoW community. Along with Jahmilli, I want to apologize to Tease. Tease knew Jahmilli had no part in it, and had to see Jahmilli getting accused of doing something he didn't do. She was, I imagine, directly affected by the whole ESL tournament as well because of the actions occurred with my team. I apologize to you.

Next I want to apologize to all the players of the tournament who were affected by what happened with team Jake'n'Bake. Pikaboo, (one of the coolest guys on WoW, really funny, rogue prodigy, I've always wanted to impress/play with, I'm also low-key his biggest fan) Snutz, Venruki, Cdew, (all players who I have always watched/looked up to/wanted to impress/be liked by when I first started playing) Dillypoo, (a really close friend of mine who is just a all around great human being. have enjoyed playing/spending a lot of time with him) Tosan (never really got to know him, always been a fan of his old PVP movies, feel like we are on a bad note currently) Glink (Glink is one of the most fun guys to play with; always a positive attitude, loves to mess around, known him for a while and we have been known to be great friends, hope we still can be) The godcomp we played for the last spot in regionals (don't know any of them, but they deserved a fair chance to regionals, which they did not get.) Novoz's Team/Vanguard's Team ( both teams with extremely skilled/known and respected players, when they heard about what was happening with our team and us making it to regionals, was very unfair for them)


Next is all of twitch/wow community/my fans/friends who weren't mentioned. Sorry for letting you down, this will never happen again. I just hope that anyone who doesn't know me won't judge my character based off of this one event, I hope everyone can look past this and accept my apology.

And I last want to apologize to Blizzard/ESL for saying that this is by far the most unorganized tournament ever. Very unprofessional, poor foundation, little to no admins to help with unanswered questions, rules / whole way the tournament was ran was absurd.

Sorry to everyone, hope that this clears everything up and that people can look past what happened, thanks for whoever read this.

-Jake


#4204741 i miss the high skillcap wotlk gameplay

Posted Tekkys on 09 September 2014 - 04:16 AM

Nostalgia hides imperfection, simple as that. Wrath was my favorite expansion (i was a PvE hero in TBC, so i cant speak much for the pvp side of the exp.) but i know and accept there were awful imbalances. Does anyone remember when Death and decay could be glyphed to be an instant, AoE ring of frost like horrify? RLS openers with bloodlust?

However Wrath isnt my favorite expansion because of some innate balance that existed; it was because the skill floor and skill ceiling of each class, and moreover, the comps you played had such a tremendous gap that you knew when a team really just flat out beat you. The little nuances of each class that you had to understand to really be competitive set the game apart from it's later expansions, especially this one. Sure stupid things like beastcleave and dfo wizard cleaves existed, but they always will. However, back then i feel the community as a whole had a lot more respect for people who truly preformed well and showcased their skill, rather than accusing them of being ddosers or wintraders or what have you. I think we were all still learning so much (i think the knowledge gap between TBC and Wrath was tremendous to be quite honest) that when someone did something skillful or released a video with some highlight or nuance everyone just stopped and said "Wow, i didnt even know x class could do that, or x spell".

Moral of the story is, when you can keep a game simple enough, but add just enough depth slowly but in ample amounts, you develop a really great platform, which is why games like League of Legends are so successful. The core mechanics of the game are so simple; you farm, you fight for objectives, you control vision, you buy items, and you work as a team. The depth they add is with each new champion the meta has a chance to change; with each new season, balance and item changes re-work the meta slightly, but never deviate from the cookie-cutter gameplay that most people are accustomed to now.

TL;DR:
Wrath had it's flaws, but the learning that took place during that expansion, as well as the difference between the skill floor and skill ceiling being so noticeable are what made it such a great expansion, imo.

How come you included a screenshot of only the top 10 arena players but your screenshot of the RBG ladder had the top 16 players in it?

while i respect ur passion as an rbg leader and your prose as a writer, you always find a way to undermine any rational argument u present. if you would just write well thought out posts without the arrogance and fluff, you wouldnt have a more respected image. i know you are an attention speaker, but there comes a time where your professionalism is seriously in question.

Best times on this website were and will always be the battlegroup forums in TBC and WOTLK.


#4058945 Don't be an asshole

Posted Esiwdeer on 21 February 2014 - 01:15 AM

How much can honestly be written about arena strategy from a player's perspective? This website, at its conception, was designed to be GameRiot meets WoM. I remember getting tells asking me to sign up in like, season 2? Anyway, the function is community, not information. If I didn't know how to play I'd go to Twitch, or watch videos. What am I going to read? The theorycrafting here has never been worth visiting for - what else is there besides community?

When there was an SK gaming list and WoM and almost nowhere else to talk to other players who exclusively PvP'd, this website had a niche. If you want to read patch notes, you'll go to MMO-Champion, if you want to watch someone else play, you'll go to Twitch. The only possible function this website could have is giving the ever-shrinking playerbase a sense of community.

You've never done any boost, Nadagast? Never played with anybody who was doing one? Not once? I bet if you could quantify the amount of damage that did to the "community" it'd be pretty tremendous, or at least moreso than "being an asshole." Moderatorship should be unbiased, should be bipartisan and should be consistent and active - it hasn't ever been any of those. European AJ mods have been found guilty of using the website to harvest IPs, you can just get banned for someone not liking you, whatever. Zunniyaki advertises selling boosts on this website and it goes unpunished. I got permanently banned for saying NAO was partnered with ArenaRating because somehow that was against the forum rules.

If you have some substance to post and reasonable credentials, you should able to do whatever you want within fair, consistent, universal rules - a forum is a place of open assembly for the people, not a place for idiots to learn how the people act. What would the website honestly be without people talking shit to one another? A bunch of 1 time Gladiators or first-time 2400s posting gifs and three word responses talking about how the game is shit? A bunch of TBC heroes talking about how the game is shit? A bunch of has-beens saying the game is shit? The game is shit dude, we got it. Grats on access.

You can't have conversations with people about the actual game. I bet you'd never say that Warlock or RLS or WLS or anything else was much stronger than any option any other class had. I've had in-depth discussions with people like Filovirus about how Hunter has always been stronger than Warlock as a class in the arena, like he can't even remember SL/SL - is that the information you want to have available?

Fast forward to Team Liquid or SoloMid and the discussion is, "yeah he won top, but that was pre-Renekton nerfs - I doubt it'll go the same way at IEM." or "he doesn't stand a chance after the Colossi nerfs, looks like an all Zerg semi-finals"

It's a roleplaying game. Not a PvP game. There has never been discussion that was unbiased or accurate in the history of this website. Maybe some gems, but everyone thinks they're the best so everyone's opinion is effectively worthless. And this game isn't competitive, so all anyone has is an opinion.

When a guy that wants to improve as a player asks tips on how to play rogue/ mage /x , and then the multi glad Regentlord responds with like ''just spam lance and faceroll into them'', am i not supposed to say fuck off at the least?Or make fun of him by the posts he did in the past?
Oh c'mon we all remember that day in s12 where he said:It doesn't matter if stampede got nerfed, i can still glad get without it (jk never 2.4 again).
So no offense, but ppl who respond like that deserve to be trolled or not taken seriously.
