Reworked Crowd Chose Blood DK - "Dampening"

10 October 2013 - 02:19 PM


With Patch 5.4, we added a mechanic called "The Crowd Chose You" to Arena gameplay. This mechanic was added to suit two primary goals: keep the game from dragging on too long, and make sure matches always end with one team declared the winner. However, we wanted something that wouldn’t make players feel they needed to change how they played the game. Unfortunately, the implementation of The Crowd Chose You that went live with Patch 5.4 is not filling that last requirement.

So, we’re going to take a different approach. In an upcoming hotfix, we’ll be removing The Crowd Chose You entirely, and replacing it with a new mechanic called Dampening. If a match should last for 10 minutes, all players in the Arena will begin to receive a stacking debuff that reduces healing done by 1% every 10 seconds. This will continue until one team is eventually able to claim the victory. In the extremely unlikely event that neither team has won after 20 minutes, the match will end in a draw.

We feel that this mechanic will have a much smaller impact on playstyle, team composition, and decision making than The Crowd Chose You, and thus result in more fun and exciting matches. We’re currently testing the hotfix internally, and will provide an update when it goes live.

How is this legit

Every single battlegroup in china has at least 10 teams around 3800 rating, how is Blizzard not deleting those teams or doing anything about the system that's clearly getting abused? I mean fair enough they need to wintrade to put rice in their bowl, but hasn't that gotten a bit too ridic if EVERY single bg there is just nothing but wintraders?


Should Stampede get buffed?

Hey guys,

Do you think Stampede has been overnerfed? I mean in it's current state it barely does more damage than Serpent Sting (and less if there's let's say a mage frost novaing), and it's more of a clusterfuck-mindfuck move nowdays than a damaging move; for a 5 minute cooldown, do you guys not think it should do *slightly* (keyword: slightly, don't read too much into it dear mages) more damage? What's your opinion of it?

And yes, I do realize hunter's do enough damage as it is right now, I have the next patch in my mind posting this.
