#3775108 The Arena Junkies PvP interview with Greg "Ghostcrawler" Street

Posted WildeHilde on 19 September 2012 - 09:09 PM

The DK in S5 was that strong because the devs listened to forum feedback, among that AJ. The community claimed DKs would be easily kited and were very weak overall. This is one big reason why the devs listen less to the PvP community. When was the last time a top-notch player explained why his class was too strong? We need to make feedback of higher quality, like Elitist Jerks does for example.

Not trying to be a dick, but the whole way this has happened seems a bit.. under-planned?

ArenaJunkies has a chance to interview WoW's lead systems developer, Ghostcrawler.  The community isn't really included, we're told about the interview's existence a day before it happens and are told to post some questions we might have, but a list of questions has already been predetermined and we are told that there are no guarantees that any questions will be added.

Now, how could it be a bad thing for us to have been given more notice about the interview, leading to more questions being thought of by the community as a whole, instead of an individual(or group of them) deciding the questions?

I really feel like this had a lot of potential, but that the whole situation was handled pretty poorly.

Just my two cents.

Sadly, In your post you make no effort to show any sort of appreciation to not only arenajunkies , but no appreciation to the guy who is actually putting in the effort to get the interview. If you make your own arenajunkies.com, you too can do whatever you want. Until then be thankful for what you get.

Ok, fair transformation, you're at least on the right track if your back and legs can compare.

I'm going to try not to sound like I'm trying to disencourage anything or put anyone down here - But I can't help but facepalming at all the teenboys that spent two months in the gym just to consider themselves fitness-guru's. It's ridiculous from the point of view of someone that has been doing this for years at a professional level and see this kids build as nothing more than average - for a kid. A freshman. I'm pretty sure my body could compare to this when I was 12-14 years old. I deadlifted 240, squatted 200 and benched 180kg's raw at the age of 20 and I have always had a "aestethic" appearance, as aestethic as it gets for a natural lifter. But - what I can do and not is really irrelevant, and there are defineately alot of people out there that was stronger and in better shape than I ever was at that age.
I can't help but using of Billian as a prime example here, with his videos of benchpresses when he's lying absolutely flat on the bench with his elbows nearly straight out (among other things), like he had absolutely no idea about form. He still seemed to be presenting himself as a fitness guru on these forums like he was the guy to educate people here about training despite of the fact he couldn't be arsed to do enough research to learn proper and safe technique for himself. I hope for his own sake that he have gotten better since then. To elaborate, lying flat on the bench while benchpressing will almost certainly cause shoulder injuries in the long run. Tate and Rippetoe would probably bitchslap anyone for putting videos with form like that out in any kind of educational context.

Show some responsibility, show some respect for other people instead of trying to feed on the clueless. Some degree of self-critisism and sense of reality would be great. If anything, the ability to be honest with yourself is nothing but priceless for your own sake when it comes to building and strength. And to anyone that wants to get into training, for strength or shape, seek advice from professionals at your gyms, and check out sites with professional tutors that actually got some education and insight into anatomy, mobility and nutrition. Mark Rippetoe and Starting Strength is always a great place to learn some of the basics, from someone that knows what he's talking about. There's a overflow of false information out there and I'd hate to think of anyone hurting themselves for life because they trusted the advices from clueless freshmen with questionable experience.

My two cents, I expect nothing but hate and misc insults and attempts to derail/decredit me from people on these forums, but hey - it was worth a shot.

Might aswell tell people that they won't look like The Rock if they drink 3 protein shakes per day for a month.

what is wrong with you people, ive never seen so many pointless threads and posts about where people should play.  Why dont you people step out from the herd of sheep and try playing the game you want to play. Go to a server you will have fun on with people you will have fun with.  If the only connection you have made in this game is which server has 10 less ms then i really feel bad for you.

All this talk about what top players are going where when in all reality those players dont give a shit about you.  Stop sucking each others dicks and go to a server you will have fun on... Problem Solved.

That's the whole point of this thread you idiot. People have fun when they get to play competitive arena. The more people that go to the same bg, the more fun it is. You don't just xfer to random server X with your 2 buddies and have a blast.

Rather than a bunch of questions, here's a list of suggestions:

General
  • A form of spectating arena games.
  • Bring the old armory back where you could see which team played who at what time and what rating they gained. I thought that armory was absolutely fantastic and outside of possible data management issues I don’t understand why it was removed.
  • I am also in favor of Rating Decay, as it promotes fair game play and also promotes ladder activity.
  • Get WoW back on the MLG circuit! Big tournaments like these get more people into PvP and more people into the game.
  • Allow the gladiator title/rewards to be achieved through 2v2 arena bracket, but not rank 1 titles. I remember back in burning crusade, the biggest thing that brought all of my pve friends into arenas was doing 2v2 with friends, which then led them to wanting to improve and eventually into playing 3v3 and 5v5 arena. It is a great entry bracket and giving some kind of reward for it would stimulate arena activity in all brackets.

Rogue
  • All of rogues cooldowns need to be reduced back to what they were pre talent removal, Vanish/cloak/evasion/blind etc. Going to 3 minute cds again really destroys the fluidity of rogue gameplay.
  • One of the three talents on the level 60 tier needs to be baseline. Rogue damage should then be re-evaluated with the new change of mobility (this makes rogues easier to balance and more fun to play). I suggest shadowstep baseline, with smokebomb as a replacement to shadowstep, and a talent that passively reduces the cooldown of all rogue cooldowns by 45% as a replacement to burst of speed. This would also handle the problem I have listed above. To recap, that tier (lvl 60) would be Prep | New talent | Smokebomb.
  • Rogue Subtlety damage needs to be increased outside of dance by about 20% at level 90. Namely backstab. Also, a glyph allowing you to use it from the sides or increased range would be very helpful for the players with 120+ latency.
  • Also a glyph to allow shadowstep to root the target for 2 seconds (Is on diminishing returns with all other roots) would be a very nice change and would add some decision making to our glyph choices.

BRING BACK SKIRMISH PLEASE


#3773048 ArenaJunkies Ghostcrawler interview - post your questions

Posted crazieh on 17 September 2012 - 04:03 PM

Are Blizzard happy with the way the ladder works? At the moment it really pays to sit on a certain rating while the others farm eachother down to the point where noone really has enough MMR to get to the rating they want. The ladder system punishes people who want to play on their main characters / high rated teams, as there's a lot to lose and little to gain.

Edit: YES bring back skirmish please!

Ask him why Blizzard hasn't thought of this yet:

Add real money prices to pvp ladderplay / for pve champs, like

rank 1 prize: 5000e
rank 2 prize  2500e
rank 3 prize 1000e
rank 4-10 prize 500e etc.

And some pve champ could design the pve prize system

They are idiots if they don't see how good of a business idea it is for them.

-It would bring them huge amount of more customers --> And that way more $$$ (Blizzard mainly has $$$ in mind anyways)
-Top players don't need to boost others for money anymore; they can just play to rank 1 on every BG and get some cash that way. -Boosting problem = solved
-Would even up the competition on every BG.

PS: Ghostcrawler doesn't understand anything that is related to pvp anyways so why even bother asking stuff related to that.
