#4554327 Food for thought from an oldschool player

Posted Tekkys on 16 December 2015 - 09:32 AM

Honestly, i think it's not a matter of what we need to do, but what we need to NOT do.
  • The PvP community needs to be serious about ostracizing cheaters. If you know someone who DDoSes, fly-hacks, or any form of obvious cheating, do NOT continue to play with them. Cheating has become way too common-place in the PvP scene, and while i know people don't agree with it, you foster its growth when you play with someone who perpetuates it or supports it.
  • Stop being so toxic towards the outward community. We are a minority of the dwindling WoW population; you can't be so selective when choosing people to play with and helping new players learn the game. I'm not saying you have to run a charity service and teach every sub-1500 player the game, but don't be cruel. Direct them to sites such as this one so they can read up and try and understand their mistakes. Be patient and help the people who truly want to get better and learn.
  • If you don't have a constructive opinion, don't consistently spread garbage. Everyone has bad days, everyone hates comp x/x/x or class x. It's okay to shit-post now and then, but don't make it a habit. If you think something deserves changing, explain why, and try and be constructive.
  • Support the infrastructure already present. GCDtv is going to great lengths to get people excited about arena, and honestly they're doing a great job. I'm not too familiar with organizers over in EU (the only one i remember is Bleached Bones?), but these guys work hard to take the game they love and get people interested in it. They need our support to grow and help the scene grow back with them.
If you really care about this game and enjoy it, you don't just roll over and die. I know it's hard when the company in charge seems to care very little if at all about what you love, but they're trying to be better. In Legion PvP and PvE will be separate, something we as a community have been asking for since late TBC if not earlier. Blizzard is ridiculous and borderline cruel when it comes to the PvP side of their game, but they are trying to amend for their mistakes, so they deserve some credit.

the real problems are wintrading and hacking (leaving apart the game itself)


Hacking and wintrading have literally the same outcome as boosts. I think it's been covered a few times before, but the real faggots here are the people who keep repeating 'lul you're just jealous I make $500 in 6-8 months while you're too shit at the game' as if people actually care about some neets who make less than half of what a mcdonalds worker does for nearly double the time.

Boosting/wintrading/hacking does not have a positive effect on the game. You can not give a shit about have a positive impact on the game, but repeating 'everyone else is to shit' is like the most autistic response possible.


#4546776 Why is it so damn hard to get good teammates nowadays?

Posted Filthpig on 30 November 2015 - 03:06 PM

The mentality of players now is, "what can you do for me or what do I have to gain?" when it used to be, "what can you teach me and how can we improve together?"

People care so much about the little number next to 3v3 that having fun isn't even on the radar anymore. If most people quit thinking about wow as a source of revenue, I'm looking at you everyone that tries to stream for profit, and played the game just to have fun and associate with like minded people remotely, we'd see a rise in popularity of PvP again.

I personally don't mind PvP being unbalanced if it is FUN TO PLAY. There will allways be OP classes/specs/abilities but if the gameplay in general is fun you can actually somewhat enjoy PvP
amen, also rep for still being on vashj lol


#4545819 [Warrior] Legion changes

Posted Pinka on 28 November 2015 - 12:20 AM

Artifact points are uploaded on mmo. There are some powerful things out there. This one in particular looks quite powerful. People are concerned with the 30% dmg taken. But fury will get insane self healing to compensate.
Hurl both of the Corrupted Warswords at your target, dealing 10 fire damage each, then leap at the target, dealing 10 fire damage to all enemies within 5 yards of the impact.

45 sec cooldown.

Pillar augments:
- leaves an aoe periodic fire damage/snare where you impact with the target for 6 sec
- you gain 100% parry for 5 sec after landing
- gain enraged regeneration without incurring its cooldown when landing

Haha Moshe is reading my mind.

But once again Prot is sparking my interest even more.
Intervene now redirects 0 additional attacks, and the damage taken from those redirected attacks is reduced by 0%
Spell Reflect now reflects all spells cast on you for 5 sec.

based on what we have currently?

deep freeze removed
invisibility removed
talent trees where we will pick one talent 99% of the time in every single situation
ice block as a talent LOL
cone of cold made frost only - arcane's only snare is slow and fire has no snares
blazing speed merged with cauterize, shares a tier with ice block so not like its a choice anyway hehe

do you want more or will that do for now?


Wow mages might actually be glass cannons instead of Gods. What terrible ideas blizz.

#4541538 Legion Rogue Preview

So you wouldent be pissed or worried if they removed... heroic leap or charge from warriors? or whatever your favorite class is.

Because its cool, it MIGHT be fixed via artifacts.. it might.
Thanks for pointing this out. Indeed, I was worried sick in the WoD preview when my whole kit got scrapped.
Since Cata Arms lost - quoting on a stance by stance basis - Heroic Strike, Piercing Howl, Overpower, Shield Bash, Shield Slam, Shield Block, Disarm, Demoralizing Shout, Sunder Armor, Thunder Clap as a debuff, got a +15 seconds on Spell Reflection, lost Charge Stun and Intercept because Heroic Leap and Throwdown were supposedly what I was to like and needed to use.

And I'm not even mentioning Blood Frenzy, Improved Hamstring, the old and proper Second Wind, the fact that Shattering Throw is now a glyph.

The class is still top notch, and it's at its lowest fun wise, for me. At best I find some silly enjoyment out of my two damaging buttons, especially when I try things that in Wrath would have pulled me ahead but now all they do is making me lose time at best.

Artifacts wouldn't fix jackshit, the class has to be scrapped at this point and was on the point of being so, we went into the first day of WoD with holes inside our core abilities because the devs themselves didn't know what to put in there since we had no buttons to push at all.

So that's the piece I wanted to share: as of now, worrying is useless because the current state leaves much to be desired regardless.
Want to cause an outcry? Wait for the first betas. Because everything that gets in there after its first half is what we will get.

It's something the Warrior community already experienced. And trust me that I feel the Rogues' concern on the whole skillcap/ skill usage/ theme of the class argument.

Scum binding shot and Shadowfury are worse.
Hoj and Deep are on the same tier. Being dispellable doesn't mean shit when it's put on the dispellers 9/10 times.

People in general have always been mad when warrior gets something thats actually good.


#4521846 If you beta'd WoD you let us down.

Posted Thaya on 16 October 2015 - 01:04 AM

I think you should take into account that designers fuck up sometimes

Look at what happened to WoDs solo content. In MoP, people complained A LOT about dailies being 'mandatory' because they had meaningful rewards for PvE - actually usable gear for raiding. People complained that it sucks that you had to do a shitton of dailies when all you really wanna do is raid. So in WoD, they made an effort to make all gear for raiding come from raiding - there's virtually nothing useful you can get from solo or 5 man content (up until recent). They even made an entirely separate loot table for LFR without tier sets, so as to not force raiders into LFR. As a result, nobody ever bothered with the solo/5man content (but complained tons about 'being bored in garrison' ofc). Mythic dungeons and draenor flying requirements are actually bandaid fixes to exactly this problem. They did exactly what the community wanted, it just turned out to be a pretty bad design. It's easy to talk shit about it now, but back then, amidst all the whining about "omfg i hate dailies", these things actually sounded like good ideas.

Regarding PvP. The whole idea of buttons having more impact sounded good on paper. What they wanted to fix is classes having like 80+ hotkeys and a clusterfuck of smaller, barely visible cooldowns, with a ton of various 'micro' plays which are only visible on the UI and can only be interpreted properly by people who are familiar with the gameplay and specifics of all the specs (read: nerds). WoW PvP being unnecessarily too complicated and virtually impossible to spectate were common complaints, "there's just way too much shit going on" is basically a quote. The whole notion of cooldowns being more meaningful (and more visible) and there being less clutter sounded great at the time. Even the idea of no dispel RNG sounded great. It just turned out that everyone was wrong.

Also, design and implementation are separate processes. It's very well possible that Holinka has a ton of stuff ready, but it just never gets actual development and testing time. There's only so much you can do to "push good design" - if it never gets implemented, you're fucked. If it's big system changes, they most likely simply get postponed until the expansion, cuz that's how WoW dev cycle works. And there's indeed nothing a single designer can do about that.
