#3918235 Tournament Realm - Blizzard steps up their game

Posted WildeHilde on 25 July 2013 - 07:06 PM

On the tournament realm the EU community manager team with Nakatoir, Taepsilum and Mivandeir duel and play arena against players as raid bosses. It's just fun and no serious play but it looks quite good. Also Blizzard send streamers and ArenaJunkies (among others) giveaway codes that we share on ArenaPass streams.

Not sure if Vanguards or Bludz still have codes - at least I have some more and will do the give-away on my stream sometime next week. We already gave out about 15 mounts and pets on our streams.

Why is this news-worthy? Well the point is that Blizzard starts to support tournaments and streamers actively and fighting the blues is also back. It seems they put a lot more effort into PvP, into promoting and supporting it. So thanks a lot  to Blizzard and the awesome EU community team with Nakatoir.

Want to play on the ArenaPass tournament realm?
The registration is still open. You can not only compete for a spot to the regional BlizzCon qualifiers  but also win a Murloc pet and the Vanquisher title, have up to 11 fully geared characters for the arena and ride close to any mount you like.  
More infos and registration: http://battle.net/wow/community/arena/

AJ is the forum in which World of Warcraft arena is discussed. Our site is well known for the distinction made between Junkies and normal members.

#3834940 Prevention of DDoS Through Common Sense

Posted Zerstiren on 14 January 2013 - 08:55 AM

The whole DDoS thing is plaguing the WoW PvP community at the moment, and it is my understanding that it is negatively affecting tournaments, which is a shame.  I wanted to provide a little insight, and some solutions that should be rather fool-proof.

As a note: I have read through Mugem's guide, and I think it is a great starting point, but there are a few things that I don't like that I am going to touch on here.


1. Stop trying to change your IP.

Guys, if someone wants your IP, they are getting it.  Fuck, if you post on this forum once, your IP can be obtained.  If you stream, play WoW, go on Skype, watch a stream, someone can get your IP.  It isn't really something that is SUPPOSED to be secret.  You need to thwart DDoSing at the heart of the issue, which I will explain in the next header.

2. Basics on DDoS.

A basic DDoS attack, which you guys already know, is pretty much connection flooding on some port(s) on some IP(s).  It is really very easy to stop this.
  • Buffer the amount of connection requests and responses in a short period of time.
  • Prevent that traffic from even making a request.
It is as simple as that.

3. Buy a router made in the last 5 years, and actually take time to set it up.

Routers don't want to deal with the kind of flooding that is DDoS.  They stop it.  They manage it.  Turn on the router's firewall, don't forward ports you don't have a reason for forwarding.  Enable IPv4 and IPv6 SPI firewall protection, if it isn't already.

4. Get a free firewall, and prevent incoming traffic from EVERYTHING.  Then enable it where needed.

Do that ^.

5. Skype Shit

For the love of fuck, turn off:
"Use port 80 and 443 as alternatives for incoming connections".

Port 80 is the HTTP port, and that is the first port ANYONE is going to try DDoSing you on.

Disabling it won't negatively affect ANYTHING.

Set-up a Skype proxy.  Mugem's guide has good resources for doing so.  Pick a high rated proxy in your region with a low MS, and you can screen share with the same quality as not having the proxy.

That's really it guys.  A basic DDoS is easily preventable through controlling traffic, and not making yourself vulnerable.  If you are having problems beyond that, you really need to contact the appropriate authority for your nation.  It isn't a bunch of nerds on WoW, it is terrorism.

"Denial-of-service attacks are considered violations of the IAB's Internet proper use policy, and also violate the acceptable use policies of virtually all Internet service providers. They also commonly constitute violations of the laws of individual nations."

Was motivated to write this after reading a thread.  Probably has typos and grammar errors, but read through it, think about shit, and do some research.  Take the time to set up your router, firewall etc. thoroughly.  If you don't know what an option does, look it up.

#3832098 Getting better with a PvP Mindset

Posted Snipin on 07 January 2013 - 01:50 PM

View PostCarnash, on 07 January 2013 - 07:12 AM, said:

So, I had a couple of questions, and I figured this is the best place to ask them.

I use to be a decent PvE'r, not the best, not the worst. I was average in a US 250 guild, but I quit raiding due to the lack of "feeling of accomplishment" if you will. Now I am trying to switch into PvP, which I find quite more enjoyable, but I am running into quite a few problems with this side of the game I am now experiencing. I always did casual BG's, and some arena's for points, but not much else. Now I am interested in becoming at least a 2k+ player, but the dilemma's are as follows:

I find myself not knowing what to do in some situations. I don't know all classes inside and out, but I thought I knew at least the basics of them. Turns out I was wrong. I find myself having trouble surviving as classes with no full self-healing abilities. Or I find myself panicking and accidentally used the wrong spell, and messed up any chance at a victory. How can I overcome this panicking? I find myself doing it more in PvP then I ever did at PvE.

What you are describing here is due to lack of experience and knowledge of the classes. If you want to learn about the other classes, the best place to start would be, aside from playing of course, checking out the specs people are using. The way the talent system is setup, you can basically see most of the 'cooldowns' that spec will have at their disposal. Learn what abilities certain classes will use to counter you, and figure out how you are going to counter them, whether it's stunning starfall, or charging a blink.

Whenever I find myself doing arena's, I always have to ask the guy if he could tell me who to target. I understand the concept and action of quick-switching, and can execute it with moderate ease, but I have no idea who/what the main priority is, or when to switch, onto who, for how long, etc. How can I expand my knowledge with these situations so I don't feel as if I'm burdening my team?

Knowing who to target, as everything else in PvP, will come with experience. Positioning and cooldowns plays a huge factor. A DK AMS'd offensively to tunnel your mage and ended up across the map? Switch. The Spriest you are on is LoSing your big cooldowns? Switch. If you feel a class is getting casts off that you cant afford to let happen, switch.

Another problem I have is I find myself not using my class to the best of it's abilities. I'm use to PvE where you only need to use certain spells/attacks to do good. Now I find myself with almost every skill my class has on my actionbar. For an example, I commonly find myself not using spellsteal and polymorph on my mage. What should I do to use all my spells to the best of their abilities?

It's a good thing that you have everything bound, you may fumble your keys every once and a while, but eventually you will get them down. Knowing when to use certain abilities goes back to what I said earlier about countering abilities with other abilities. Spam sheep on a warrior with CDs up, clean off a targets 'trash buffs' so when something important is up you can quickly dispell it.

If it helps at all. I currently play a DK, Mage, and currently leveling a Shaman and Warlock, with possibility of a Paladin/Warrior in the future.

I would suggest sticking to one or two classes. It allows you to focus on that class and master it. Especially since you are still trying to learn how everything works in PvP, you don't need your own class getting in the way of that. Play your mage.

I guess this basically comes down to "How do I stop sucking, and get good at PvP"

Any help is appreciated. Thank you for your time!
