#4413273 so.... what you guys doing

Posted Nogahn on 22 April 2015 - 07:12 AM

the are losing players due to the fact that the game is getting easier with every patch.

people loved that fact to be better then others due to raw class mechanics.

do you remember the time when you got ouplayed by a hunter using readyness offensively (when it was a 5min CD)
or a hunter actually had to cover his traps (aoe root healer, scatter, explotrap into freezing trap while silencing the ele-shaman)

next expansion = every class has 3 dmg spells, 1 defensive-cd,1 offensive-cd and 1 CC

there is almost no room for outplays with raw class mechanics anymore and if there are they aren't even worth to mention at all.

Also I'm pretty sure it's bound to get better at this point, if not MASSIVELY better, and I was usually never wrong about these things.
I've heard this so many times, people just need to accept Blizzard's antics with the launch of WoD were atrocious and basically the final nail on the coffin for any sort of prosperity in this game/community pvp related. It's as if they're literally blind to the flock of people constantly trying to create constructive, realistic ideas for pvp. The other day I looked at a few of the 6.2 changes and I wasn't surprised to see that after months of this shit they manage to literally just make the game even worse. But hey, there's a tournament every weekend with some random idiots from ladder so it's doing alright because it has ..... oh wait, I have to zoom out on my browser to find the amount of viewers on the WoW section of twitch. I think the inconvenient truth here is that Blizzard has already pushed away so many players with their bullshit since the launch of the expansion that even if they do manage to make some good changes they'll most likely be too underwhelming to even mend the fuckery they've produced.


#4411482 Is this a legit proof that WoW is a very shit game ?

Why does it seem like there is a new thread pointing out how far down the twitch list wow is everyday?

Glinks you're chill and this is going to sound harsh, but maybe cause you're being one of those idiots who still 24/7 nolife queues this shitty dead game - anything that would expose you to the truth seems exaggerated and belligerent?

Back on topic:

Twitch views definitely correlate with popularity, activity and gaming relevance (particularly for e-sports).
This isn't an indicator of difficulty, skill, or fun-factor.  Some of the most competitive, best, hardest, most-fun-to-play games get like 5 viewers.

I think as the playerbase for games and gamers in general (outside of WoW) shifts through the demographics of millenials and that instant gratification google lookup generation, we're going to see way less "patience" in games.  The era of self-learning, innovation in isolation, and hard-route progression is dead.  People learn through videos, streams, channels, and forums dedicated to strategies/tactics and have fast ezmode access to this information.  They no longer trial and error their way to min/max and will pretty much short-circuit to the fotm playtsyle and cookie cut builds.

Before e.g. 2008, the word "metagame" was hardly a thing and people didn't spend hours making videos about how to analyze and exploit the Metagame.  Now, the "best way to play" is pmuch spammed down your throat in any competitive play (cause if you go outside the box people will call you out, tell you ur shit, and try to correct your build, etc.).

Asside from the usual reasons (good support, non-toxic community, hack-free environment, etc.), a lot of these old games succeed (in remaining competitive, popular) because of their incredible depth and diversity.  Furthermore, there is an effect where some games are literally so old they predate the.streaming and/or metagame discussion sites - any "secret knowledge" is pmuch buried and/or lost, and with enough depth/diversity the game is fun (again) because there is so much to innovate and discover.

I honestly don't know why you people are surprised.

In wrath/cata, people would give their left ball to see some of the top teams play, because top teams had the knowledge while lower teams didn't. Back in s8 when I had highest RPS team in the world, arenajunkies was testing out the "live/offline" function of linking xfire streams to their "Stream" section, I pretty much linked my AJ acc to my xfire acc, turned on the stream at something like 6 in the morning, and was fiddling with stream settings and with keybindings on my rogue - those 20 minutes I was fiddling with those things, I got like 400-500 viewers watching me literally doing nothing, at the time when both EU and US are basically sleeping.

Watching top players play was an exclusive thing back then. You felt privileged just seeing a PvP video from a really good team ( Vileroze MLD f.ex. ). Now you see Hydra streaming and you're like "meh" - why ? Because he can't show anything to you that you already don't know. Game took all those extra areas you can excel in, and everyone is playing the fucking same, there are no more special strats you can borrow off a better team than you, the only thing you can do is work on synergy between you and your teammates, and you can't really do that from watching a video/stream of other people playing.


As for Swifty being top streamer, Twitch is popular because of the same population that watches Mexican TV soap shows and stupid American reality shows - except that the people that watch Twitch are gamers, so they watch gamer adaptations of such trash content. Idiots like Sodapoppin getting 10k viewers for being... well, fucking retards, dying their hair and doing random shit on stream ? Those same people that watch him are the people who find shit like Big Brother and other reality shit tv shows interesting.


So if WoW is not capable of producing such braindead streams that attract absolutely MORONIC viewers that are the lowest of the low when human race is concerned, don't expect the game to fare well on Twitch ratings.

When people go into defensive overdrive, it's 99% certain that they did something they shouldn't have done.

Just a tip, retards :)

The weird part is, none of them actually refuted the OP claims.  They didn't explain how those Q's happened at those times, they just randomly brought up games that had nothing to do with the OP screenshots.

Seems pretty guilty.

#4400104 gw2

Posted ysnakewoo on 13 March 2015 - 06:54 PM

The main reason why GW2 failed is because they promised to bring GW2 into the esports scene and then they completely ignored the PvP community for several months (Frenzy Thief, 100b Frenzy Warrior, immortal Engineers, Mesmer teleport etc, Elementalists being useless as fuck, Necromancers going from broken to unplayable, burn Rangers), no real ladder, no skirmish arena while having lackluster BGs.

Not to mention the fucking Asura, fuck that race and whoever designed that. Whoever plays that little shit has a huge advantage because you can't tell the difference what the fuck he is doing and should you be dodging it or not.

  • Get up and go to work,
  • Sit at desk,
  • Drool,
  • Go to lunch,
  • Return to desk
  • Drool more,
  • Go home,
  • Have dinner,
  • Reply to twitter,
  • Go to bed.

Prove me wrong.

Just saw another wave happen.

The company is completely scum across the board.
Seriously have to question the people that still support them with sub fees.
