I was waiting till my team found the front page of AJ.

Stop the QQ okay I've lost 2 games the whole season, we obviously deserve rank 1, what ever some other team does is on them.
So what about Merlin Poisty and pikaboo? WIntraded from 2200s-2600s in 1 night with a carry team they deserve R1? yeah ok.

you don't 'deserve' rank one unless you can keep it because you're better than the other competition

This takes me back tieclone kids at it again. Whoever was lead on the R2 team gave it to Poisty's shaman so if they try to push higher he will just disband the team so they gave him team lead to prove they will tie and if we don't tie just disband the team. Really hope blizzard resets them |: seeing Merlin with R1 hurts my eyes T_T.

US 5s is so much different to EU, its like US are stuck in the past expansion in the same way they discovered War Pris Sham way after EU
I remember watching a tournament in EU one time. It had that, "Dice Egg" hunter or whatever the hell his name is running Enhance/Resto/Hunter in S9. They were bragging and bragging about how it countered RLS when RLS was god tier, which was quite hilarious.

I also remember some multi-R1 Druid I think? Reliuna comes to mind as the name, anyway, this guy had been R1 on EU several times and he couldn't even run behind the boxes on Dalaran without falling off. I may not have been the best player to ever play this game in America, but I sure as hell didn't ALWAYS fall off the ledge in Dalaran.

EU invented DDoSing, win-trading - I mean, just look at the Russian ladders at any given time. Are they 3.9k legit? Damn, nice. Let's see: our champions are people like Reckful, Azael, Draen - legends in their own time.

EU's legends are people like Xandyn, Zunniyaki and Khuna. I'd add Hydra to this list, but he's a prince and should not even be in the same paragraph as those three common criminals. You can find Khuna at any given time groveling with the American Duelists on this website, trying to beat the rap he got for stealing Hydra's identity. I mean, c'mon. The dude cheated to get R1 - you mean to say he just had Hydra's fake ID on his computer and had no idea what it was for? Please, you know he's a French scumbag who is pissed that there's no surrender option in the arena so he has to commit identity theft for a title he doesn't deserve.

Have you ever seen Reckful groveling with American duelists? No, you haven't which is surprising because so many of you EU types are actual peasants in real life with real life experience on how to behave as serfs. Fun fact: none of us playing over here in the old US of A have a king or queen appointed over us. I think EU's are just so used to having stuff like prima nocta instituted over them and huge taxes and basically living the real life version of Game of Thrones that they don't have a lot of time to be good at this game, which is understandable.

Please, just don't get it confused about which continent really ran this game when it was fashionable to do so. I'll give you a hint: it most definitely wasn't France.


#3692408 is Slam really needed to do good dmg?

Posted Annihilate on 24 April 2012 - 08:33 PM

It's a lot easier to get slams off than people make it sound in this thread.

Unfortunately, using slam or not using slam doesn't really matter if you're playing a warrior because you're playing a warrior  :lol:

Arena carries helps the activity in arena and to everyone crying also u get better at the game by facing people better than you.

Sigh. The Gladiator title, by definition, is supposed to go to the top 0.5% of players in 3v3 and 5v5. The thing is, Glad sells have become so rampant that that number is probably, what, 0.3% now? That might even be generous. The same players are filling the ladder with "Gladiator" teams, reducing the number of unique players that are able to crack that 0.5%.

Sure, maybe glad sells do allow these R1 players to play while not sitting on their rating. So the teams doing sells are playing instead of doing their season-long sit -- but they're just playing against eachother.

The consequence of this is that for normal players, getting into Gladiator range becomes extremely unlikely as the players they have to beat to even get to 2200 are those same R1 players who are now either playing for a low-glad spot just like the normal players are, or are playing for a definitely-safe glad spot which just makes the cutoff that much higher, and that much more inaccessible to the plebes.

These rival/duelist players then proceed to give up on getting Gladiator legitimately since the opponents they would need to beat are the top 0.1% instead of the low end of the 0.5% cutoff. So they pay for these R1 players to get them Gladiator, continuing (and compounding) the cycle.

The R1 players who say that 'sells encourage participation' don't realize that it only encourages THEIR participation. They think the arena ladder is more active only because they aren't sitting on their teams for 6 months like they usually do.

The rivals and duelists and near-gladiators are crucial to the arena ladder 'ecosystem'. You might think they're weak things that can be removed from the food chain with no consequence, but like in nature it just doesn't work that way. The 0.5% system and the ladder in general requires a steady rise in skill the higher you go up the rankings -- but with the abundance of glad selling going on, there is a definite skill gap disrupting the ladder, and it has ruined arena.

Glad sellers are fucking scum and should be treated as such, regardless of whether they are associated with NAO or not.

Sells don't help the game meeting rank 1s at low rating never ever will help the game it will just cause bottlenecks at certain ratings so the top 50 ends up being r1 mains and sells done.
Makes it annoying as fuck when your just chillin on your average warrior then spam que into a team at 2.2-3k which is clearly a boost and are forced to just stop queing or get farmed when you know the owners of that account are 1.8k players.

This isn't really the main problem the cancer of sells produced.

Firstly, this illusion that sells causes the ladder to be more active is one of the dumbest misconceptions around, in fact it does the reverse. People who buy sells...don't then continue to play that team unless it's only a 2.2k sell, which is only ever done in 1 day, Glad/R1 sells sit on that team for the entire season, its those teams that are playing to get whatever their target is Duelist, Glad, Rival etc that makes the ladder active.

This is why TBC and WotLK were far more active than now, when sells were either non-existent (TBC) or far less especially in the earlier seasons (WotLK).

It damages the community, it ruins it for legitimate teams and players from getting Gladiator,teams that work all season to get it - then when you hear about sells and boosts they can get disinterested in Arena and quit altogether.

It means even less players break into the exclusive "0.5%" club, and instead promotes mediocre players up to that level, lowers the quality of players all around.

Basically, if you do sells of any kind you're scum, a cancer on the game who I hope is perm banned away.

I'm reporting every sell team on EU ladders that I can find and if I know the people doing it I'm linking your main accounts as well.

Biggest imbalance I've ever seen in 11 seasons of arena.

Either:
- Remove it from Preparation
- Add a 75 energy cost to it
- Or disable it in arena

Anything less won't suffice.

No, it's still warlock/shaman/x. Rogues just happen to be very powerful and so they fit in the fotm (fote?) comp of the expansion, warlock/shaman/x x))
Not true at all, rogues have surpassed the most powerful duo in strength. They can now be placed in nearly any comp to have better results, being 100 % serious here. RLS just happens to be the most powerful duo + the best class.
