The wolves thing is stupid, played some 3s skirmishs before against rmp, with the 60% sham rage glyph and wolves, popped wolves just as they opened, sat like 3seconds off cc and used sham rag + stone form I was like a god haha
I was facing another enhance shammy and realised the 2 set wolves bonus can be purged.

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.

also, there was way more retarded shit in vanilla/bc/wotlk than now.. just nobody gave a shit back then.
Like what? I'm sure that for every retarded wotlk thing that people find I can easily name two in MoP.

Posted Abidalzim on 27 June 2014 - 06:33 PM

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.
