That was just S11, and it also had legendary daggers/staff in arena + tentacle rape warriors. RLS was THE comp back then. If memory serves, even the finals to some tourny were RLS vs RLS.

S9 was very melee cleave-populated, with I think DKs farming casters left right and center. Anyone remembers this? :]

S10 was actually pretty good and I honestly can't remember anything being too OP or UP in it.
Nah, every season was like this, except that s9 also had literally 1/3 glad spots taken by frost tsg on some bgs. Lock+rsham was the dominant comp during the whole expansion, there was Shatterplay early on and then frost MLS, LSD2, Shadowplay, Shadowcleave, RLS, fire MLS. Lock+rsham aids in 9000 variations. Also facing the occasional triple dps as early as s10. Ice lance spamming RMP with openers out of invis once in a while for extra fun.

Sure, I had lots of fun while playing MLS/FLS early on, but then one more thing happened that made Cata absolute garbage unless you already had a bunch of people to play with. Smaller realms literally died during s9/s10, especially after the mmr fiasco. Often you simply couldn't make any viable comps anymore, because you had maybe 3-4 players that were 2.2+ capable, but you were fucked if they happened to play the wrong classes/specs.

Cata at least was diverse. Now it's lock shaman x or Mage Druid x every game.
No it wasn't, almost every game was either lock/rsham/x, triple dps to rape the rsham or the occasional rmp. It was garbage and aids to face, unless you played said comps.

Tbh from the druid's point of view playing playing both comps, rmd often looks more retarded than lsd. Sure, you need to do the cc right, but half of it is instant while the mage orbs and spams icelance. :S

#4071020 Too many defensive abilities

Posted Abidalzim on 04 March 2014 - 11:54 AM

barkskin while silenced
cloak 100 %
infinite feral mana
infinite enhance mana, not needing to sham rage for mana
infinite mage mana
icebound while stunned
3 sec vanish
infinite warlock pets
totem of i fucked up but who cares
mages seeing others while invis
recuperate healing more than hybrids
dispel for every healer
spells outside traditional schools
etc etc

All of this dumb stuff was added in cata, which was even worse exp than mop in my opinion. I'm actually a little bit excited about WoD if they actually do remove some of the bloat.

After every boost the real player won't ever queue arena again until next season, so much for activity.

1. If x serves the same purpose as y, and exhibits the same behavior as y, then x and y are functionally equivalent.
2. Rank one players playing boosts are functionally equivalent to rank 1 players on alts.
No, they aren't. But keep ignoring it.

To make it more precise - in this case x doesn't serve the same purpose as y and it doesn't exhibit the same behavior as y.

Let me just emphasize how important my last point is.

People often find the most external excuses as to why they lost a game.

"Ugh, RMD is just too strong!" "Ugh, Shaman KFC is so gay how can they ever lose?"

The point is that in ANY given game, you probably did not play at skill cap. Barring EXTREME countercomps, you SHOULD be able to beat ANY team so long as the other team does not play at ABSOLUTE skill cap.

People fail to see this. They fail to see their own play as a part of the problem. Instead they conveniently complain about x Class being gay or comp Y being OP.
Actually the only thing I'd really have to do was queue a little bit "selectively" with some friends, camp a bit on rating, make "smart use" of game mechanics and I'd be double glad. I could even ddos to r1, heh. But some of us try to play this game for fun and try to enjoy a fair competition in a world of kids that behave like they're 11 years old.

Now I can accept that proper 3v3 r1 players are better than me and that they should be above me... but I find it disgusting that there are random 1700 players taking up glad spots. And no, alts don't take nearly as many glad spots - firstly because they generally don't have 1400 mmr and secondly you can hardly play as many alts as you can do boosts.

i agree with kettu on this one

boosts are functionally equivalent to alts. in fact, they are almost EXACTLY the same thing.

the people who complain about boosts, as mentioned, are the ones who often lose to boosts. which means they are upset at losing to something which is functionally equivalent to an alt.

why would any person be upset by this? i think its an l2p issue. boosts are actually good for the game because they force the gladiator player to actually improve their play against players that they would face at higher ratings

i dont see the issue
1/10 if troll, double facepalm if serious.

You're right in one aspect though. I cba playing  a game where I meet better players like Jahmili (and not players like you) at 200 mmr lower than my team and getting +3 or losing -14 for a team that should have been worth +14 at least.

What about the know boosts? You really think Bloodx should have 6 rank 1 spots, with a 7th know rank 1 boost, and countless more, and thats how the official ladder should look? Games like LoL and DotA have much better regulated ladders, which is why it's much more competitive.

1, 2, or possibly even at a stretch 3 is understandable.

Talbytree has 7, that's 1 player taking up 7 known Rank 1 spots.
Boost should have both the boosted account and the boosters account perm banned, no questions asked. I applaud blizzard for banning players like cdew.

If you guys really want to get rid of people boosting you shouldn't spend your time bitching here on arenajunkies. You should bitch about it on the wow forums and make tons of tickets..
Is this a joke or what? The last time I played seriously in s9 we had 3 glad teams on my realm, 2 of those were known glad sells. We all reported them, guess what happened? Shit all, noone cares about ingame tickets or posts on wow forums.

Let me rephrase

For every 20 arena players qing at any given time there was 1 qing skirmish.

So yeah they are useless now. Esp. with how many alts people have - you will see how useless they are when the reimplement them.

Wow so much sense, let's delete arena like they did with skirmishes back then. Braindance for lead dev.
