#3938074 The Truth; 5v5 Tich Disqualification

Posted Azaelz on 12 September 2013 - 02:29 AM

Posting on behalf of Kisz.

**Update:

Hello again everyone,

I'm here with very good news today as we just found out that our disqualification has been reverted. I'm sure in no small part due to the efforts of everyone here who supported us.

I'm writing this now to thank everyone who helped us in any way, we truly appreciate it. I was overwhelmed by the responses I received in-game, over Skype and in this thread from all the people sending their regards and support, it means a great deal to me personally to have that many friends be there for me when the chips were down.

Hopefully everyone can see now that we were legitimate and that unfortunately Blizzard does sometimes make mistakes.

I'd like to give a shout to Xarkhorin, a Spanish EU game master who did more for us than any other person at blizzard with whom I spoke, he took the time to properly look into our case and it showed. Thank you.


Hello everyone,

As some of you may know by now the Rank-1 5v5 team on Tichondrius-US (Shindy, Iamzod, Thinkchair, Jyostar & myself (Kisz)) has been disqualified for allegedly participating in "fixed" arena matches.

I'm writing this post on my teammates behalf with the intention to give our side of the story and refute these claims, nothing more. I will not be crying, flaming, linking Skype logs/screenshots or inciting drama of any kind though it may be a long read. I know that the arena community is not what it once was nor do I expect to change the status quo towards online achievements because I would never be so naïve as to think that I could. For those of you who know me personally either in-game or through my stream I would like to think that you know I would never cheat to get ahead, not in real life nor online. I generally never compete in 5s, It's more often than not a corrupted mess of meaningless ddos, win trading, sniping, paid carries and other such nastiness. This time however it did mean something to me which is why I felt the need to bring this here because I can say with conviction that every single one of the games played on our 5v5 team “dont speak english” was 100% legitimate. I've spoken to the relevant people at blizzard and there is nothing that can be done to reverse the disqualification, that's not what this is about.

On the final night there were 3 other high teams queuing that we knew about from observing in-game.

Team 1;  Novoz, Thugonomics, Veller, Snaregodx & Dannycarey
Team 2; Sodah, Talbadar, Venruki, Karvinen, Kollektiv & Nadagast
Team 3; Hansol, Dibz, Takenotez, Shapez & Dotatko (apologies if I misspelled any of your names, I feel like you probably don't all have “z” at the end haha)

Events as they happened from our point of view:

TLDR; We played against 2 games against 2 different teams on the final night (Hansol and Novoz) and beat them both legitimately, all parties involved know that there was no foul play and should be able to testify as such. We queued up that night not knowing who we would fight or what the outcome would be.

-We played consistently throughout the season with multiple different people, attaining and holding R1 for a significant portion of the season.
-Going into the last few weeks Team 1 overtook us and we proceeded to leap frog up in rating, eventually ending with our team at 2642 and theirs slightly lower.
-In the following days they queued up and also landed on 2642. We were tied, we accepted that with the knowledge that if any other teams were to approach that rating we would simply queue up again.
-Going into the final day of the season our teams were still equal and that night everybody was online. We knew that Team 2 was queuing and we were waiting to see how they did.
-Team 2 and Team 3 queue into each other 3(?) times and Team 2 is now approaching our rating, we decide to queue up.
-We play Team 3 and win.
-We queue up, we play Team 1 and win. Our rating is now 2673. This is where we ended at.
-Team 3 stops queuing and disbands their team. (found out about this later)
-Team 1 and Team 2 now queue against each other multiple times to try and catch up with our rating. We do not queue at this time because there is no need to until the winner of this series is decided, we had a significant lead.

Fast forward to the final hour and at that point we knew that Team 1 had beaten Team 2 and were close to our rating but we were unable to locate them in-game to check their arena rating. We decided to queue up with very little time left until the server downtime and face Team 1, we kill a member of their team but the server goes down before the game has ended, no points awarded or subtracted from either team. There was no way for us to know what their rating was, we didn't know who was higher until the next day when the armoury came up.

As my final thoughts I'd like to say that I met the Korean team through doing arena on Tich, I live in the UK, they live in Korea and we're both playing on US servers. Despite being across the world from each other, playing in three different time zones and not speaking the same language we were able to connect and enjoy WoW together, this is why I’ve always appreciated the internet and online gaming. The community is what both makes this game great and at the same time threatens it the most. I was very privileged to get to play with them, they are all great people and regardless of this disappointing outcome they earned their rank 1spot on Tichondrius playing arena how it was intended to be played by being friendly, enjoying their time playing and above all being fair and honest in the process.

I appreciate those of you who still make WoW enjoyable and thank you for taking the time to read this wall of text. Best of luck in Season 14.


Regards
Kisz


P.S. It will always be harder to be kind and decent, especially online, but don't think for a second that it's not worth it. Better believe that.


#3769163 #1 PvP Server?

Posted Donald on 15 September 2012 - 06:30 AM

OK everyone that has already gone Tich are either blind or selfish. Blind to the obvious that if we want a powerhouse server it has to be central for the fairest ping for everyone, or so selfish that since they are west coast, they want better ping for themselves, or they don't care about the community enough to weigh their opinion before picking a new server.

We have a better opportunity now than I can ever remember to set in stone the top server right now, why would it not be voted on? How is it not obvious that it should be central? We need a thread where we vote on the central server soon, and I don't want to risk the 4 hour Illidan log in Qs that I remember from the start of Cata. Other central options seem much better for PvP.

Hopefully the majority of the top PvP scene can agree on a central datacenter server. If team reckful and co don't want to be on the central server we pick, then they are choosing to deal a huge blow to MoP competition and Qs right from the start. If they do that, all my east coast associates go KT horde with me. Fuck the west.

PS Jah for president. Also, don't need a #1 PvP server with wargames... this shit has been so much better than regular queues in every single way.

I don't think that feeling should exist for anyone with how the game is right now, lol

if you really think that, you obviously dont think its fun anymore. so why do you even play? I know there is some obvious answer to it but at the end of the day, its a game and its supposed to be fun.

and for the rest, i really cant believe what im reading. there is wintrading and ddosing and hacking and all this other ill shit going around, and you STILL get insanely mad over someone legitimately getting glad as a certain comp that requires maybe less skill. but think to yourselves, 3dps isnt even CLOSELY as good laddercomp as ANY other :warlock: :shaman: 'random'. but when those good laddercomps actually get farmed by 3dps, the tide is turned...

i just think people forget whats important in this game, too have fun. and if these guys in that video have fun getting glad for the first time as 3dps. so be it, get over it AJ.

Not that I think wintrading ddosing etc is acceptable, but do you really think you should call people out on not deserving their titles when you sucked jahmillis dick (literally) so that your druid could be piloted to rank 1 in 5s?

should probably start sucking some dick yourself for a title there eh?

I don't think you understand what "viable" and "doing well" means. For me, that is being rank 1, beating every top, tournament level team, and winning tournaments.

Jahmilli, what's the difference between you and I? I admitted when my class was overpowered. But not only that, when my class was overpowered, I was able to take home a $75,000 check while you, playing an overpowered class, just lose in online tournaments over $100. Are we done?

I think the other team popped all of their cds into a DF while no1 on your team did anything.
So you're saying our entire team should've popped nearly every CD just to prevent the mages damage in the opener when it could've happened later in the game after every CD was popped? I couldn't sac because of shadowfury and the DK was blanketted. Please continue to justify that damage.

PS: Yes this is the patch for MoP but we still can have our opinions of how retarded something is, and that damage is simply ridiculous.
