#4386834 Flameglow needs a nerf.

CD on poly too while you are at it.

In that case, 2 minute cooldown on trap, or 30 sec cooldown with arming time. Really, hunters should just shut the fuck up and know their place in the grand scheme of things, pretty much every Hunter with an opinion that isn't anti-trap and frozen ammo at this point is a second class citizen and shouldn't even have the right to speak.


As for topic at hand, Flameglow needs a big fat fucking nerf, agreed.

I hope I can take selfies from the full root/sheep/clone/blind/kidney I'm in and catch my healer getting red buff killing spree'd in the back.

Get on my level sadcunt, or are you too busy losing to someone who eats his own puke in an irrelevant bracket?

Like I said, I can't take anyone who wears compression leggings serious. You look like an 18 year old adult actress in her debut scene on 18-schoolgirlz.com. How about you go shave that bumfluff of your face, have a wash then talk to me you unhygienic mess.

#4382584 The most successful arena expansion

I just think people forgot how actually slow paced it was, how there was only like 5 specs and 3 comps viable, etc
2dps 2v2 is an experience of its own though. Nothing in this game felt like quite like sp/rogue. That's where my TBC helms are from

I voted for Wotlk even though by S3/S4, TBC had a better atmosphere.  The gameplay was overall better in wotlk, but tbc had better community drama and forum activity.  

In TBC:  
  • Every BG was at war with itself and was finding its own local heroes, drama, and metagame.  Each BG was like its own galaxy that you would track independently.
  • The rivalries between charters were extremely real and on a whole other level because charters.
  • Ladder engineering wasn't perfected -- you didn't really queue dodge or snipe, you just made a post on the forums announcing a general time in which you would be queueing (since high rated teams sat in long queues).
  • There were multiple ladder sites which showed far more detail (stats, arena match analytics, etc.).  E.g. SK gaming and advanced WoW armory.
  • Comps were carried by the player (the frontpage maybe had 2 different sp/rogue teams and each had an entirely different playstyle/stratbook, same goes for warr/druid or w/e).
  • Very few streams (beginning of xfire was like S5) - people relied on forums for strategy and maybe the release of an epic video.
  • Rise of tournaments.
  • Ventrillo.
By WoTLK:
  • 2v2 illegitimate.
  • World of Ming died.
  • Some BGs had 5v5 r1 ties and misc. corruption but generally clean ladders.
  • Only real hack was gcd hack which didn't last.
  • vanilla/tbc heroes already started to quit and/or become alienated.
  • In-game arena pacing reached all-time "best".
  • Era of the best tournaments featuring more EU/KR/US interactions.
  • Rise of skillcapped and tutorial sites.
  • Rise of skype usage, infancy of twitch.tv.
By Cata:
  • Game struggled to remain relevant in e-sports.
  • Last of the good casting and well-organized tourneys.
  • Rise of the 1 shot macro.
  • Rise of the sell/pilot/ddos/trade for rankings.
  • Rise of game popularity in Russia (think about that).
  • Rise of idiots streaming idiotic shit.
By MoP the game was just a filler, a place to feel previous legacy - being still one of the few polished arena games.  Cheating was perfected in MoP.  By WoD every single game feels like a washed up scripted experience with zero innovation.

RIP golden age S3-S7.

If you have a lot of cc (mage) you should be a glass cannon.

yeah, same with rogues too

i know it's kind of beating a dead horse at this point but i really can't even begin to understand current mage design

they can't really die, can't do any damage outside of ice nova (which as a mechanic in itself doesn't make sense) so they're left to just spam cc (a factor that was supposed to be reduced from mop -> wod) which gets DR'd from ice nova

literally what were they thinking


#4377488 This game used to be so great

Posted Nadagast on 30 January 2015 - 11:56 PM

Things that make me sad:

Mages are Hunters
Hunters are Hunters
All healers are Paladins
Everyone can do everything
Damage is gated by cooldown and secondary resource rather than position and cast time
Too many defensives
Healing too strong
Mortal strike too weak
Everyone can do everything
Nobody has any unique tools anymore

but he's actually right, before flying mounts(60) the world was so vast it would take 1000 years to get bored of it

Exactly. Even getting to places where you "shouldn't be" was fun. Like glitching up mountains and stuff. Now you just.. fly.

Lets not forget that everything took effort back then. You had to run to every instance (emphasis on running, not flying). Playing alliance and doing SM was like "oh god I'm balls deep in horde territory" and then a mini battle would probably occur at the meeting stone up at SM. All these small things add up to a great experience. Just clicking "queue for whatever" from Stormwind takes away from that experience.
