#3867266 Holinka appreciation thread

Posted Hyrmine on 27 March 2013 - 02:05 AM

I think it is safe to say that Blizzard employees read AJ so, thank you Blizzard for employing/promoting someone who actually does his job right. Hopefully GC won't have be involved in decision soon so Holinka can improve PvP even more.

There are still many who don't know his twitter or don't even have an account to tweet at him, I encourage you to do so since he actually replies to most tweets and unlike GC he actually says things that make sense.

Update:
I found more information regarding Holinka! You can find out more about him on his LinkedIn profile here:

Prior to working for Blizzard he seems to have been working on a game called Transformer: Fall of Cybertron. I've never heard about that game personally. The company only had 200 employees it seems.
And before that he was a Senior Game Designer at THQ. Pretty interesting!

if you think that your honor gear should be better or even close to my 2/2 upgrades with the amount of conq / time i spent putting into it you should probably just go back to not playing anymore.

If you like the model of time invested = gear = skill you should probably just PVE

that is the entire point of this season they said it from the get go why are people honestly even surprised?

they rewarded players who stuck with the game despite it being worse and worse .. if you think that your honor gear should be better or even close to my 2/2 upgrades with the amount of conq / time i spent putting into it you should probably just go back to not playing anymore.

Cool you want to come back thats awesome - grind it like the rest of us until you get tyrannical.

#3861426 wtf is this gear disparity

Posted Pritchard on 14 March 2013 - 03:20 AM

what bothers me the most, is that new gear is 493 ilvl, 2 ilvl more than upgraded gear.  So whats happening is that people who are full upgrades are ALMOST in full tyrannical already, 2 ilvl off of full tyrannical.  Not only does that show how bad the gear disparity was last season against people with no upgrades or honor gear (essentially fighting 1-2 seasons ahead in gear if you were undergeared vs fully geared), but now people in honor gear are STILL pretty much an entire season and a TON of ilvls behind.  Idk I personally just feel its all silly, and that the LFR excuse is just even worse design than simply letting people do LFR in pvp gear.

Already been said, but I'll bump/like every post relating to this until they address it. :P

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


#3861414 Nether Tempest and Warlocks

Posted Nadagast on 14 March 2013 - 03:12 AM

Apparently Mages are now better Warlocks than Warlocks are...

A single cleaving Nether Tempest hits for about 85% of the damage of a full stack of Warlock DoTs.


Maths:

NT Avg Hit: 3469  http://i.imgur.com/C72nwAF.png
NT Avg Cleave Hit: 1819   http://i.imgur.com/u8TgZ0P.png

Corruption: 3431  http://i.imgur.com/85x1Tgd.png
Agony: 4119   http://i.imgur.com/r2dpHpS.png
UA: 5439   http://i.imgur.com/1PymEr7.png


Average total NT DPS: 3469+1819 = 5288
Average Warlock DoT DPS: (3431+4119+5439)/2 = 6494

Add in ~5% more crit for the Mage, and we're at 5552 Nether Tempest DPS vs 6494 Warlock DoT DPS.


That's 85% of a full DoT stack on a single spell which always only takes one global to apply, procs ~70k instant nukes, and is not even really a Mage's main form of attacking.  I would say the situation is pretty ridiculous right now...  Note that these numbers are from an RBG where I was able to spend more than my regular armount of shards under a spellpower increasing effect, which means in an arena the numbers would be even more favorable to Nether Tempest.

I dont think blizzard can do w/e the fuck they want, when there is money, at least on my country is a relation between customer and suplier, and you cant do w/e the fuck you want with someones money/time

They actually can do whatever they want to. It's in the terms that you "signed" and hit agree to every time they have a new patch. You don't even own your own character. That's why selling it is against their terms of service because you're selling their property.

1) No one said shiv'ing it off was skillful, I'd rather a better solution like someone else suggested, which would be it breaks CC the second it's applied but not for 30 seconds straight.

2) How the fuck is pushing a button ONE TIME to grant a 30 second undispellable/uncounterable CC breaker any more skillful than shiv'ing it off?  Both are mindlessly easy you clown, don't act like it was some skillful clutch next level play to give your healer a buff at the push of a single button.

WAAAAAAAHHH!!!
