#3866820 What we can do to help PvP

Posted Braindance on 26 March 2013 - 01:08 AM

Nothing will change here for the following reasons:

a)There is no sense of reward or punishment in those forums and in the game now. You can be a saint and get nothing or be a complete jackass and get the respect of this mob called junkies, just because you got "swag" (/puke)

b)The game atm can be played almost solo mode. You don't need a guild to do raids - you got lfr. You can get gear from dailies. In BC pve and pvp gear were interlinked - you could pvp in pve gear and vice versa and you had to work with a closely knit team to achieve your goals

c) The moderation is, as the word says, moderate. Moderators are too easy on everyone. Bans are rare. Infractions have too high of a cap. Any sociopath that had problems with his real life, can come here and open fire on everyone without any kind of punishment, UNLESS, someone, somewhere decides to push the report button which is scarcely used

d)"Good" players have no time now. They are "too busy" or afking. I remember in s2, the one that helped me transition from rogue to warrior was a guy named Dustman that was top 5 2s/3s most of s2 and 3. This guy was qing 24/7, but when I asked him for help (multiple times), he literally stopped qing to give me macros and playstyle advice. I am still continuing his legacy of helping others. People turn to me for help in messages and in game whispers while my title collection is the lowest of the low. Why? Because I care to help them

e)Bitches play this game. What do I mean? Instead of working around the imbalances and/or making helpful suggestions on how to improve the game, they just bitch. 24/7 they bitch about everything. "Why is my class weak?"."Why can't I have tattoos on my character?". "Why can't I can't see my character's genitalia to masturbate?".

f)You get the most +rep for posting moronic bullshit and childish insults. Good posts are rarely rewarded.

This AJ, is sending all the new players to either skill-capped or streamers. How many new players are willing to pay money to learn how to pvp? Quite a few. How many new players would pvp if they didn't have to pay to go through the rough learning curve? A lot.

tl;dr If moderation in this place doesn't become way more strict, if no incentives are given to junkies for making guides (even that pet giveaway that Curse does), this situation will keep recycling itself perpetually.


#3803103 Improve the way you announce events

Posted Hyrmine on 11 November 2012 - 05:08 PM

Events right now are a complete mess.
They are posted in the form of a news item and drop to the bottom sometimes even if the event didn't take place yet like for example the Blizzard tournament.

AJ should have a calendar that obviously stays at the top displaying PvP events that are going to be streamed. This will also boost the viewers, a lot and even make WoW PvP more popular.

Additionally AJ members with a certain rating should be able to put events on the calendar enabling good players to set Arena events up.
It should look something like this:

#1769090 Guild Arena Ratings Viewer

Posted Tavarius on 26 January 2010 - 12:14 PM

A few days ago I was asked by someone to create an application that scours the armoury for the arena ratings of an entire guild for crappy-player 'clean-up' purposes.

If anyone else has a use for this - go to town!

http://www.mediafire.com/?nucmgzzjm1m (Mod Note: Virus free, for all you concerned.)

I'm still a novice coder, so don't expect the fastest of the fast, or COMPLETELY bug-free. Scanning a guild of 270 players took about 15 minutes, so just keep that in mind.

Leave any comments or whatnot here or send a pm.

Update: source code:
http://www.mediafire.com/?22zhyqdefim

I'm not proud of the part where I needed to scan the ratings of the players. I could not find a fix where XPath lets you check for existence of an element.

If you know a fix to this let me know and I'll clean it up. (!= null doesn't work, I tried :P)
