Without the bonus entertainment from my favourite streamers (Reckful, sodapoppin) I am constantly reminded of how bad this game actually is... WoW you're in trouble.

Ill be back when the game gives me a boner again.

Reckful's stream has been utter shit for a long long time. Don't get me wrong, I'm thrilled that he can type rather quickly and I'll have to thank him for countless hours of competitive Tetris. But over the last year+, its been akin to watching the senior PGA. He should have quit on his own a long time ago, to ride off into the sunset a legend...

I can't really comment on Sodapoppin's stream as I've been unable to watch for more then 45 seconds before my eyeballs break out in rash. Although, if I were able to make it past said 45 seconds, I'd be nervous that my remaining braincells would go on strike. Huffing paint may actually be better for you then watching that monstrosity.

edit - Reckful is streaming now, 2500 viewers "Reckful - commentating ethan's date" SO EXCITED

#3936758 Tryhards of Season 13

Posted Bigmoran on 10 September 2013 - 09:01 AM

This is a really untimely occasion for me to post this as I'm recieving tons of criticism in other threads but I think it would be a nice abd refreshing to collect all the R1 drama in one thread. I wrote most of this thread in advance, so some of the information might be dated.

Hey ladies and gentlemen, this type of thread hasn't surfaced on Arena Junkies in quite some time and seeing as this HOPEFULLY will be the last season for generally scum-baggery, I hope my post gets the attention it deserves. Most of my information from below comes from conversations about US ladders and focuses heavily on things I've heard through the grapevine. If you are a friend of mine and are on this list, no need to fret, this list is but a post in jest, and one that I hope will not ruin friendships (pls forgive me).

DK: Vigarista. Although not known by many, this Brazilian backpeddling superstar has made an appearance on a few BGs this season (namely Rampage, Retal, and Ruin). He seems to follow with the other Brazilian gods, playing PHD with the likes of Rynd and Beilgatta. For whatever reason, his Retal team decided to que LSD at the same time Rositajones was queing shatterplay. This led to a devastrating tank. Vigarista,  who was previously on the roster, backpeddled away into darkness to never be seen again.

DRUID: Once whipped by popular streamer Bamfxo, Lickerz, has been a realiable asset to the 5v5 bracket. Often playing with Kaska, Lickerz is present on five different BGs, all in the pursuit of the Tyrannical gladiator title.

Honorable mention go to Coolbears, the 15 year old Jewish Jungle-cleaver who literally combined rosters with himself after getting farmed on Ruin.
(http://us.battle.net...ns One African/) I don't actually know how many BG's he is on but I would venture to say it's more than the amount of hair he has on his armpits.

HUNTER: A prolific poster on this website, the winner of our try hard hunter goes to Reedz. Playing on at least three BGs, Reedz quickly became master of the 5v4 and 5v3 brackets. Unfortunately for Reedz, his razer naga dream team took some devastating losses on the Sunday night before season end, leaving only a trail of tears, a discarded box of Hot Pockets, and a 19 Button Expert Gaming Mouse that can be yours for the low price of $68.99. Merc out.

Posted Image

MAGE: Also known as SJ, probably short for his Sloppy Job at playing fire, the try hard mage of this season is Spicychopz! This kermit the frog voiced washed up bong is playing on five different BG's with little to no competition.

Sharing this award is Jahmilli, the highest rated player in World of Warcraft. Jahmilli was able to take time out of his role in the upcoming movie Insidious: Chapter 2 to get some titles. He climbed to the top of the ladder on a few BGs, patching together a Frankenstein lineup of  Goonies to 2800+.

Honorable mention goes to Rositajones. This flamboyant Living Bomb god has somehow convinced Jahmilli that he is worth carrying. He is playing on 2-3 different BG's going for R1. Though a tip of the hat to his team for achieving the highest 3v3 rating in the world.

Posted Image

MONK: There really is no try hard monk that I can think of. Dannycarrey is undoubetly the best monk that currently plays but I think by default this award should go to Jordons, the previous ring leader of the Cataclysm wintrading cartel (Jordons, Perry, Nevz). This season he will be adding another red helmet to his collection on Arena Junkies. It is sad that he has retired his days of controlling every BG, though I think his understudies (namely Kaska) have done a fair job of carrying on his legacy.

PALADIN: Gsgsgsgsgs. This emotionally troubled helpless romantic has found himself chasing as many rank 1's as he does girls. He is currently on the Rank 1 3v3 on two BGs, and the rank 1 5v5 on three BG's. His strategy is undoubtedly "Get rank 1, get laid."

PRIEST: The priest category has multiple winners. The reason for this is that priests seem to be essential for success in the 5v5 bracket. It is also the class in which we see the highest ratio of scum. It is said that 5% of the world population is related to Ghenghis Khan. By similar logic, I'm inducing that 5% of the priest population is related to Jordons. Carrying on his legacy of tryhardedness and wintrading genetics is Seestraighz, the sleepless superstar of the 5v5 bracket who is playing on five different BGs; Aetarius, the hopeful Aussie whose dreams have been repetedly crushed by resets (he's now going for R1 on two BGs); Exumbra, the autistic bottomfeeder turned slightly better than bottomfeeder who literally transferred an entire team (http://us.battle.net...5/mort de rire/) just out of spite of Seestraightz (http://us.battle.net...s_for_u_steven/); and Anapolis, the priest healing the aforementioned Coolbears.
Honorable mention to Save, but with a hair style that marvelous, he deserves exclusion from the main list.

ROGUE: Try hard rogue goes to my friend Fhos, who is playing on at least two BGs in hopes of the prestigious Tyrannical Gladiator.

SHAMAN: Currently receiving his PHD in Computer Science while finishing up his internship at Cisco systems, Kaska has somehow managed to infiltrate almost every single BG. Though the print on his Alt and TAB keys is surely reduced to cheeto dust and sweat by now, he still manages to be one of the most feared shadowrealmers in this community.

Honorable mention to Adversa - this newcomer to the Rank 1 scene is a strong candidate for S13 Most Improved Player. His teams never fail to get wins in the clutch; the force of his heals often causing a player of the opposing team to inexplicably log off.

WARLOCK: The obvious choice for warlock would be Rawkus, but I will spare him the humiliation and assign the title to Dotaphd, who hopefully is getting an actual PHD seeing as the debt on his mom's credit card from WoW related expanses is probably more than the average cost of grad school.

WARRIOR: There really were no try hard warriors this season. I almost gave this title to Casval, seeing as he was on the most BGs of any warrior this season, but instead I give the title to previous Rank 1 KFC hero, Halcyons. This guy's team spam q'd the last week of the season, falling short of Rank 1 by nearly 150 points.

Posted Image

Most pathetic: Though I am somewhat biased in handing this one out, Exumbra is surely the most pathetic person of this season. As I mentioned he had partaken in transferring an entire team to two different BGs to try and screw over Seestraightz (costing time and money in the name of revenge). Not only that but his 5v5 team on Ruin literally had a scouting schedule. It was confirmed by multiple people that he assigned members of his team different time slots to scout our server to see when we would que. Aside from that he claimed to have "eyes" on our server. When confronted about it he said that has a few people on Real ID from Bleeding Hallow horde who notify him and his team when any one of us log on.

<<< [2:40:10 PM] Aric (Exum): i have 6 teams with 2.3k mmr looking to snipe u

Best rating camper: Sodez and Mackenzie. Though Mackenzie has since tanked from his days at Rank 1 Bloodlust, Sodez has topped the charts on BG9 for months now. He sits on his slot from the $40 throne of Honey Bunches of Oats encrusted Target Brand chair at the gaming house. Luckily some Mastermind and his prodigy rogue were able to climb the ladder to an impressive 2840 rating.

Posted Image

Honorable mention goes to Cyprix, Elfxhunter, and Wizkhalifax who have literally been sitting their rating since a month into the season.

Boldest wintrader: Navajitas - Hailing for the land of Tacos y Burros, this sloth looking Feral Droid has made numerous attempts to climb to Rank 1 on Vindication. He was recently stripped of all his rating and gear but luckily had an honorable buddy by his side to get back his cherished Tyrannical gear (GG Tyranical Conquest Achievement). Since he has been reset he has disbanded his second climb team, claiming to do so because the win ratio looked bad.

Biggest virgin award goes to me. This is probably the most pathetic thing I've ever invested so much time into. I need to keep my rep/post ratio above a 4.0; this is the only way I know how.
Oh, and a special shoutout to Khi, Plat, Krystof/Dhale FFXIV God, Keklyz, Vexthizzface, Toph, Smulch, Vinny,  Ayra, Hildegard Sprigglespruxx, Not Reliuna, Gabe, Ruin/Retal, youtube.com/bobrosslol, Poppy, Thelfx, Deprive, Splatted-o, Bubbez, Rambojohnny.

#4397792 (Poll) How long do you like arena games to last?

Posted Lolflay on 08 March 2015 - 12:26 PM

Healer mana should be the gating mechanic, not dampening, Blizzard is just fucking retarded.

High damage and equally high but costly healing should be the norm, voila, 3-4 minute games unless you let the healers drink ( which was the case in every single good arena season barring MoP/WoD ). Also, get rid of drinks being super powerful, drink should take 20 seconds, first 4 seconds of drinking shouldn't net you mana in arena, following 6 seconds should return you half ( or maybe even 1/4th ) of the mana it currently returns, while the remaining 10 seconds should return shitloads of mana at exponential rate ( reward for team peeling for his healer drinks, and not dying to enemy damage while recieving no heals ).

Games should reach past 4 minute mark only if the players themselves decided to ( both teams pussying out, afraid of a loss, scared to go on the offense because of obvious reasons, healers being able to do whatever they want ). This concept of... healers having infinite mana and being able to keep everyone alive with their infinite resource until dampening is just... Only a shitty developer could think up of such a shitty concept.

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 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.
  • 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.
