#3865437 No Upgrades in 5.3 for PVP Items

Posted Yemina on 22 March 2013 - 05:14 PM

Ilvl 549 PvE gear vs Ilvl 512 PvP gear, sounds smart? BiS PvP gear from slaying dragons...

#3861362 wtf is this gear disparity

Posted Smooviex on 14 March 2013 - 01:12 AM

it's actually impossible to even compete when you're in honor gear vs 2/2 malevolent gear/weap... you're not able to play if you're just coming back

#3860707 Looking for PvP Guides!

Maybe some people just want to be helpful to some without having to be paid for it..... there are some decent people you know,

Exactly, I write guides because I enjoy helping the community, not everything has to be for profit. I hope a few people take AJ up on this, I know there are a lot of intelligent players in the PVP community with a great deal of knowledge to share. I think a lot of them get discouraged by what is typically a hostile and adversarial environment, not just here on AJ but on pretty much all WoW PVP forums.

But I think people will find that if they write a good guide and make a positive contribution the community most of the community will respond in a positive manner, even those who otherwise post in a hostile fashion. At least that has been my experience.

GL future guide writers.

Are you kidding?

That guy. that you linked in the thread, upgraded all hes gear to 2/2, do you know how much points he spent to do that?

And you are whining that honor gear, that i just farmed in 1 day for my 3 alts, should be in the same ballpark as full T2 2/2?


hey captain obvious, since season 1 to s12, we had the exact same gear available for honor after a season.

Posted Tist on 10 March 2013 - 06:35 AM

good news guys

since I was 30 ilvls behind in my dreadful last season, I grinded out all the new honor gear

now i'm only 20 ilvls behind!

It's ok though, Blizzard's genius has prevented me from ruining the new content for other paying customers by queueing LFR in pvp gear...that would just be gamebreaking

Sai is a perfect example why this "community" is just pathetic.

Am i even playing the same game? Warrior damage seems fucking insane, have you even tried bladestorm lol.
Unpeelable swiftymode which ticks for around 40-50k with mastery proccing out of the ass.

Try out stormbolt with bladestorm or just run shockwave,stormbolt and have a crap ton of annoying CC.
Yes we get tunneled but didn't we in s10/11? All it means is there might be a way to counter/beat scumcomps like KFC. I for one am very pleased with the changes though the overpower one is a little harsh we will be more than fine in 3v3 with comps like WMD/WLHealer.
Just chill with the knee jerk reactions and play some wargames with decent people and you will find you will do just fine.

Edit: Dstance for prot is still 25percent btw and prot feels great for next season flag running lol.

just becuase you are used to 25% mongo reduction

#3859227 Speed of PvP

Posted affix on 09 March 2013 - 05:02 AM

by the way, season 3/season 4 weren't "slow paced".  it was really fast paced and people could die in a single stun just like now.  The only thing preventing that was that lifebloom was fucking CRAZY fucking overpowered and as long as you had a stack up you were invincible.

RMP could kill people in openers.  And the mana game made stupid shit like double healer warrior or double healer hunter or, worse yet, double healer demo lock possible.

#3856392 How Reckful got carried to his second R1 title this season

Posted snugglebunny on 04 March 2013 - 12:37 PM

It would be bad for his "business" not to get rank 1 whenever he tried. Probably would lose some of his fanboys

Posted andysc on 04 March 2013 - 11:50 AM


Fact of it is, you're dealing with people that have been doing this for nearly 5 years. Speaking as someone who has experience, they don't view it the same way that you do - if you're even telling the truth. To them you're a random Duelist and I know if I saw you on the top spot anywhere, I'd assume that transferring there for the title was worth my time and money. People are going to do the most shady thing imaginable at the very last second when it comes to getting R1 no matter how many times they've gotten it before.

Kollektiv especially is like a literal wizard at stuff like that. He can compile lists of players, keep track of them and coordinate queueing and who he queues into at a literal professional level. It wasn't possible to compete with him back in the day on Vindication for those precise reasons. Literally, an Asian wizard who instead of spells casts an omniscient presence over all teams who might queue into him.

When you're dealing with people like that(especially people who are being paid thousands of dollars to complete a R1 boost) you need to be willing to do anything to compete with them. Your bench simply isn't deep enough. There's no point in getting R1 if you can't hold it, and they're not going to leave a team sitting at #1 for no reason.

There's only one way to become champion: never fucking lose. If you really deserve R1, you should behave like a true legend. Draen for example would series anyone who'd be foolish enough to face him, and queued every day even though he was risking potential 30 point losses and gaining 1-3 points per grueling, sometimes risky win. Eventually closing out the season 150 points above the next team who had no such recourse to take, no one could say anything to him. That was the definition of a closed battlegroup.

If you were really the best, you'd spam queue and get R1 no matter what. Unfortunately nobody who plays this game any longer is that good/that lucky to have their class fit into a good comp, so your only option is to do what they know they must do: cheat the system. These people have been doing this for long enough to get a degree in it, and they're better at it than you are.

Let your inexperience serve as a lesson: R1 isn't over until it's over. If you truly feel you deserve the title and the glory, perhaps you should find a way to make yourself immune to these actions next season. As for selling R1, this community is completely dead and there's truly no harm in it. I don't think you should pretend it bothers you so much.

The real question is: how does someone who has never even been Gladiator before suddenly feel they're good enough to get R1?

Or good enough to compete with professional, tournament-level players?

^^ is nobody going to talk about this?! fucking KFC.
