  • Shadowform now increases the Priest's armor by 60%

Posted Image

Is that a joke? Roughly 6-8% dmg decrease (assuming no armor pen ability like colossus smash or find weakness) which doesn't even affect spells, bleeds or 90% of DK damage is the compensation for losing the 15% damage reduction on shadow form? Surely there are more changes incoming, because if that's the only defensive change coming to shadow priests, then you'll never see a shadow priest in arena again.

Armor in general has been a joke since cata because pretty much every physical damage class either has armor penetration abilities or has 50% of the damage with spells/bleeds anyway.

It's not as if you can lock a hunter out of his nature school.

Scare Beast and Revive Pet are both nature and interrupting either will lock out the Hunter's nature school.

casters should be CASTING, which they don't anymore

warriors are also melee, yet they teleport around the map like some kind of mage on crack

ferals....yeah let's not talk about ferals
Warriors teleport? Did I not pull this ability out of my spell book?

Blizzard so smart.

Blizzard: "Hey guys, lets open the AT so people can pay to play a different class!"

It also doesn't mention anywhere that the top players will be going to blizzcon...



It never does,  Blizzard avoids getting into online gambling legislation this way.  Basically you are paying for a service instead of a 'chance to win'.

Why not PM him about the rules before you post stupid comments?
Why are you implying his comments are stupid? He's got a clear point.

People who watch tournies tend to prefer watching top players play their main class & spec,
Instead of watching Derekroth's & co (name changed for obvious reason(s)) play their 7th fotm alt's offspecs against each other.

a tournament is supposed to determine the best team... if you are able to say "well we can't beat their comp, let's just ban that spec", then you are no longer playing in a tournament setting, you are playing a ladder setting where one team just dodges the other team because they can't beat them.

it's your tournament, you are free to do whatever you like, but i won't play on it if i can just have my spec banned

No, you get replaced.

5 players per team

What's the point of a tournament if you can't play with your best team? If you are forced to play other comps/classes that by definition defeats the purpose of a tournament

this is a retarded idea. why would you ban specs? if someone bans holy paladins, what do i do? ret? play resto sham at my marvelous 2100 level? you want to see who the best team is  so you should let them play their actual comps with their main specs

Interesting. I like the idea of having 5 team members. Always feel like I'm having to leave players out that I want on my team with the normal format. I agree with Azael that bans will be tricky, but I think you should follow through with it because it sounds like it could be a great experience.

There are a ton of problems with the banning format, but I'm excited to hear about a tournament regardless.

If one team bans a spec does that mean it's banned for both teams?  That'd mean 6 specs could be banned altogether if you do it after each pick.

Also would really make classes with only one viable spec pretty trash.  For example banning Arms Warrior means you're going to see no Warrior at all, since they won't go prot or fury really.  Ban UH DK and they're pretty much gone as Frost doesn't really exist at high levels neither does Blood.  Etc etc.

I think like people said it's cool in games with tons and tons of heroes where a player just learns one general playstyle IE jungle, carry, support etc etc and then selects from a multitude of heroes within that play style but it's more tricky when you're in a game without so many.

I think each team banning a map makes great sense as there are very imbalanced maps, but I worry that you might just end up with a lower level of play with the tournament with people banning out specs and whatnot that players are famous for.  How many people really want to tune in to see Venruki login a BM hunter after Frost gets banned out, or to see Another on a Feral druid because UH DK got banned out etc.  You'll just end up with players who're worse on the classes and games less people care to see, but perhaps I'm wrong!

Anyway, cool idea and would love to be involved - also awesome prize pool!  Not trying to be a downer just trying to make sure everything is thought through for one of the few high profile tournaments we have these days!
