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

This is a rather insane buff for ferals, I'm not sure if people realised yet.

#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.

Wow this new expansion sure is packed with new features. Jk, but people are actually praising blizzard, such wow.

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.

When you have a sad life that makes you angry all the time you have to take it out on something.  So attacking the game is a good place for them to start.  Just hope that their lives get better so they can stop being so angry all the time.
After being treated like a 2nd grade customer for 9 years you have to have a sad life to still hang onto this old game so hard. We don't need to take it out on anyone, we can give you facts why pvpers = worthless shit in blizzards eye and all they EVER did was only hot air so you wait and stay subscribed for the next patch/expansion.

#3922203 Reasons why 2v2 should be a competitive bracket

View PostMirionx, on 03 August 2013 - 01:51 PM, said:

Yes this is a wall of text, good evening.

What I'd like to add is that I don't think 2s need to give titles to be a real bracket. Look at the most horrible bracket out there, 5v5. It awards the most prestigious title available, aka r1 - but does anyone take that bracket or the title seriously? No, noone really gives a shit about it.

3v3 arena needs a competitive 2v2 bracket that is somewhat balanced and gives some kind of reward. I think the Wotlk model was fairly good, you'd progressively get more gear until 1800 for weapons and it kept you motivated without having to be particularly awesome to reach the goal. It was only natural that pvp'ers from 2v2 that wanted to push more would start playing 3v3 as well for titles, shoulders, t2 weapons and a bigger challenge when it comes to skillful play. If you keep saying "who cares about 2s lol" you're just making 3v3 even more irrelevant as it is because you'll be soon playing alone.

The same could be said for any video game, but if even blizzard cared for 2s it would be a real bracket
No. I'm talking about how noone outside of the very very few that are still left playing 3s care about 3s. Ever since low pop servers died mid cata I've played a lot with casuals and I've noticed that most average PvP'ers! really cba to play 3s. I'd dare say more people nowadays care about imbalanced 2s than 3s, titles or no titles.

3v3 arena is dead and it's going to continue to rot because there are no new players joining. 2v2 was the entry bracket that suplied new players to the arena community, but now there are mostly just oldschool tryhards left that have been playing for so long that they can't stop. The scene is dead, there's no community (hello realm/bg forums) and unless you bring new players in arena is going to be more irrelevant every single day.
