#4378400 Warriors Overly Dependent?

Posted by Braindance on 01 February 2015 - 08:07 PM

Revolol, Smexxin, Abe trillebartom are better warrior to watch for PvP. There is a lot more that they do to showcase skill as a warrior.

All they do is damage.

#4375379 Is Holinka the worst thing that happenned to WoW PvP ?

Posted by Braindance on 28 January 2015 - 09:01 PM

For the record, WoW is probably the most responsive, lore filled, content filled somewhat balanced MMORPG out there. Excellent PvE content, lot of stuff to do, be it PvP or PvE, runs on low end machines too, constantly supported.

If you show me a game with similiar fetures but better PvP balance, then i might consider jumping the ship, otherwise i just cba to leave my 10 year old account behind.

The only game lately that actually caught some of my attention was Planetside 2, which has some amazingly good grand PvP experience. Other than that?

If i want to play a competitive RTS, i play Sc2, for MOBA there Dota2, LoL, Heroes somewhat Smite. FPS could be anything from Titanfall trough Halo to Quake or CSGO.
But when it comes to this actual genre, where i do like to do other stuff than just PvP, theres no better alterantive.

What? The only thing that is true in the bold part is the responsiveness.

SWTOR had way, way, way better pve content and lore and I bet there are other games out there with better lore etc. It failed mainly because of the responsiveness.

For a game that is 10 years old it's trash. Just to give you a glimpse of what 10 years means, it took 3, yes 3 as in three=1+1+1, years to rebuild the world trade center. It takes 4 years to graduate with a college degree and 5 to get a PhD; 4+5=9<10. A presidential term is 4 years. 10 years from now none of your current living cells will be alive. That's just some of the things that can happen in a 10 year timescale

My point is they had all the time in the world. The current game would be considered perfect if it was 1 or 2 yold, great if 5. For 10 years of countless iterations, data from millions of users and for a company making billions it's trash.

All it currently provides is meaningless carrot-on-a-stick content (pet battles, gathering pebbles across the "world" to get mounts and pets etc.), ad nauseum reiterated pve content, and our latest rock-bottom experience time travel to other dimensions so that we can bring back the dead and make the game "feel" like it was in BC to attract all those that cancelled dem subs.

Nothing wrong with the game if you play for fun, but you would be naive to suggest that this game is good or w/e given the tremendous resources that they have at their disposal and 10 years of (unused) experience.

#4370552 Is Holinka the worst thing that happenned to WoW PvP ?

How hard is it to understand taht balance has nothing to do with developers; it has everything to do with the devil's incarnate:

Kotick has at times been a controversial figure in the gaming community.[5] In part this can be attributed to advocating a business strategy focused on only developing intellectual property which can be, in his words, "exploited" over a long period, to the exclusion of new titles which cannot guarantee sequels.[16] In responding to why Activision Blizzard chose not to publish certain games following the Activision/Blizzard merger, he stated that focusing on franchises that "have the potential to be exploited every year on every platform with clear sequel potential and have the potential to become $100 million franchises" has "worked very well for Activision Blizzard". Kotick described this business strategy as "narrow and deep" or "annualizable" (Braindance; make alts since your class sucks) and cited it as key to attracting development talent who may not be drawn to "speculative franchises".[17]

Kotick also created a stir when commenting on Activision Blizzard's peripheral-driven franchises. During Activision Blizzard's Q2 2009 financial results conference, Kotick was challenged over his "comfort level" around high prices attached to "new games that have some expensive controllers" and said, "if it was left to me, I would raise the prices even further."[18] While Spong took the comment at face value,[19]Gamesindustry.biz thought the comment was a joke, but could be seen as "insensitive at a time when consumers are likely to be feeling the economic pinch".[20]

A frequent complaint from the gaming press is the gap between Kotick and Activision's chief consumers. Ars Technica editor Ben Kuchera wrote, "Kotick doesn't play his games, and it shows."[16] Video game developer Tim Schafer said Kotick "doesn't have to be as much of a dick" in his attitude towards Activision's customers.[21] Gaming blog Kotaku reported, however, that Kotick confessed to a passion for video games that "has never really gone away," and "rattle[d] off an impressive list of consoles he's owned in the past and games he loved."[5]

#4369418 6.1 Arms Changes - Slam buffed, based holinka

Posted by Braindance on 24 January 2015 - 04:27 AM

First of all, because of the way the rotation works right now avatar is not even close to being decent in it's current state.

Making it 1.5 min makes it more inline with the rest of offensives in the game. Besides, to take it you lose storm which is nothing to be laughed at.

Finally, if slam keeps working the way it does, I sincerely doubt that it will be viable. If the buff duration was extended by 2-3 more seconds then yes.

#4368785 Burst of Speed nerfed

Posted by Braindance on 23 January 2015 - 06:46 PM

I love all the morons who are celebrating the nerf. I'm fairly certain no rogue didn't think BoS wasn't a retarded mechanic. As dumb as it is, it's currently needed vs the likes of frozen ammo (and if you compare it to crippling, you're fucking braindead) and faerie swarm. If changes aren't made to those, it's going to be even more painful fighting hunters and druids.

Bolder part makes no sense.

And at the end of the day, it's already painful fighting hunters and druids for every other melee bar ferals; why would you have a different treatment, given that you have an easier time sticking to a target when you connect compared to other melee?

Please be more rational

#4363273 New 6.1 PTR notes

Posted by Braindance on 18 January 2015 - 04:51 AM

The druid changes look really minor so far, wonder if they will add more druid nerfs and tone down arms or something else too.

Tone down arms.

As a frost dk.

That is a very interesting point of view.

#4361172 Arms buff

Posted by Braindance on 15 January 2015 - 11:47 PM

Whirlwind is still horrible, I can't stand playing arms untill they remove rend and whirlwind and give back deep wounds and overpower/slam. Also, colossus smash and reck putting you in battle stance is just stupid and clunky imo

Whirlwind yes. Rend no.

It requires active play and it's controllable (i.e. you only rend what you want not what your clap hits).

Yes bro, sorry for being honest and pragmatic.

Now you can also use that nice label you guys use, white knight or w/e.

I had what I had to say; you agree good for you good for me. You can use what I said to your own self improvement or stay stagnant.

No offense but consistently gossiping about girls on the internet (they can be slutty or whores or w/e you name it), whose actions have 0 impact on your lives is quite low, and exposes the glaring insecurity of hey since I will never sleep with her let's make fun of her.

Just so that you become better people one day.

#4356024 Arms buff

Posted by Braindance on 13 January 2015 - 04:48 PM

Can someone answer the following questions:
  • Does mortal hit as hard if not harder than obliterates now (i.e. can it crit 50k)?
  • Can you kill people by yourself without waiting for 90% dampening?
Please answer because my resubbing is contingent upon the answers thanks.
