good games, definitely more fun to watch than warrior gameplay. Also like the fact that most so called "good" rogues are having problem breaking 2.3k this season in full gear and ure like 2400+ in 466 ilvl and the first time you play rogue srs in months, is it not? Being 20+ ilvls below ur opponents can't be easy either with the gearbased game we play, especially as a rogue. Impressive to say the least.
ye cause every rogue has access to cdew and talbadar lol


#3836707 5.2 Changes Jan. 16th

I think the Warrior defensive stance problem is just a symptom of a larger problem.  It seems like the arms race has gotten so out of control that each class needs at least one of these two things to be considered decent:

1. Passive damage reduction.  Like defensive stance or shadowform.
2. Strong CDs that are useable while stunned.  Like glyphed barkskin.

So many classes have such strong abilities to live once they are out of stuns that you are almost required to kill in stuns.  If a Warrior lives a stun he can leap/intervene across the map.  Rogues can immediately get 30% damage reduction, without even using a cooldown.  The abilities people have to survive outside of stuns are so strong that damage has to be tuned so that people can die in a stun, or people wouldn't die much.  This high damage in stuns means if you don't have one of the two above, (and WW Monks+Rogues have neither) you're going to die in stuns.  Often.

This simple fact is the only thing making WW Monks and Rogues seem underpowered.  They are both great at creating offensive pressure, and have great CC/lockdown, the only problem they have is that they both die in stuns.  Ideally I'd like to see Blizzard rolling back some of the abilities arms race which has created this only-kill-in-stuns issue, rather than giving every class significant passive damage reduction, (further homogenization yay) or extra get out of jail free cards (like Nimble Brew, the new WW Monk stun break).

arena needs to become more about people playing their characters instead of the normal chain instant cc that is currently happening. By this i mean stun into silence which are TWO different DRs and can go past 10+ seconds of someone not being able to play their character. i do really feel they've gone overboard in this game on the number of classes that have silence and it destroys healers/casters. i mean at one point in this expansion we had mage, lock, rogue, warrior, druid, hunter, spriest, monk and dk all being able to silence. and when you combine silence and stun on casters, you get the complaints that YOU CAN'T CAST IN ARENA. I think a healthy change for the game would be to combine silence and stun in the DR category because you can get 10+ seconds a caster of just doing nothing while being violated.

ps, i'd give lock and mages their silence back with that change.

I totally agree, but Rogues are one of the worst offenders.  Glyph of Garrote and Cheap Shot need to both be removed.

I'd really love to see a game where melee had lower damage, but more 'kill CC' like stuns and silences.  Casters have to cast to do real damage, but their damage while casting is much higher than melee.  Casters also wouldn't really have any kill CC like stuns or silences.  This would make the two archetypes rely on eachother in an organic way, where the caster needs the melee to hold the person in place and get casts off, and the melee needs the caster's damage to be able to kill anything.  Cleavers alone wouldn't be able to do enough damage to kill something easily, and wizards alone wouldn't be able to hold anything in place for long enough to kill it.  And mobility needs to be toned way way the fuck down.  People are everywhere now.  Warlock Port used to be a solid defensive cooldown, but nowadays it feels like it hardly does anything against cleaves except let them heroic leap to you for 50k.  Blah.

I feel like the game was much much closer to this back in TBC and Wrath.  Cata and MoP have added way too many counter to the counter to the counter abilities to the game.

There was a suggestion like this on the WoW-Forums it basically said: "What if we let Caster CC let DR and Melee CC DR but Melee and Caster CC would not DR?"

Blizz Response: "This would force arena teams into caster/melee/healer, is that a good thing?"

Yes it is you fucking faggots at blizz hq...

I have been seeing a lot of people complain about the new LoseControl that evil Blizzard has implemented. As an internet expert and as an advocate of social justice, I have made a guide on how to disable this new feature.



Enjoy!

#3804780 Thoughts on balance changes

Posted Domesauce on 14 November 2012 - 10:59 AM

I'm more concerned with people doing no damage for 2 minutes and then doing 4 HP bars of damage in 5 seconds, then back to nothing. A lot of these little changes are good but not really relevant at this point.

I did not react on all of your negative comments on boosters, but this one is just over the top. You're generalizing so much that I am seriously questioning your attitude and start thinking that you are one of the biggest retards on AJ.

1. Boosters are not more nerdish than normal WoW players, actually 90% of the people that are in Shanghai atm that you consider as "stars" are boosting actively.
2. Do you even realize that nearly every single booster does not want to rely completely on WoW in their lives? It is simply not possible for everyone to put that much time and effort into earning money with streaming 10h/day, doing youtube videos, etc like Reckful who is doing very well with it. Me and 95% of the ppl I boost with are going to school or university at the same time and just want to earn some free cash while playing WoW. Boosting is the only way to earn money without putting too much time into this shit game.
3. You won't see nonboosters in tournaments because the people that will dominate in tournaments are always gonna boost because they are the only people that get the high €/h boosts and they are the only people that are good enough to do them fast. Another is the biggest booster in entire EU and he was dominating last 2 regionals, the only reason Skenz/Khuna/Flubbah (who boost 24/7 aswell) didnt qualify over Pwny/Boetar/Blukstack (who boost sometimes aswell) is because of bad brackets and comp, it will happen very rarely that only average teams like this go to top 2. Every big tournament name in WoW in the past was boosting (Enigmz, Fabio, Another, Inflame,  Xandyn, Hydra, not sure about US but I am pretty sure they are boosting alot aswell).

Just my 2 cents, you are really pissing me (and even people that do not boost) off with all of your insults, but I guess that is what you intend with it. Just keep it to yourself.


#3795867 Chaos Bolt nerf in 5.1

Posted saffie on 27 October 2012 - 07:07 PM

^this guy is playing KFC and lurking warlock forums because he met a destro warlock once in arena and got owned because he is too shit to see the chaos bolt coming, now all he does is run around and whine about one of the lowest tier classes on their forums and flex that he managed to get high rating with the cheesiest comp where they more or less bring the healer as an accessory even though the best he has managed so far is duelist.


+rep if you agree.
