#3867363 What we can do to help PvP

Posted Thaya on 27 March 2013 - 06:42 AM

Yeah, there's no way to monetize text guides without AJ/Curse directly supporting it. But what we can do is promote and popularize certain videos. If someone makes an exceptionally good video guide, gets sticky and/or a feature on frontpage, it'll bring him tons of views and subs.

As I said multiple times already, right now we should just restructure the forum to make this demand for content more visible. Enthusiasts will appear themselves - ultimately it doesn't matter if it will be via videos or text.

Speaking of the frontpage/newsfeed, I think that's another part of the site and community that can be hugely improved. Look at diablofans for an example of a great newsfeed - every time there's new content, they post it on the front page.

Other people see the potential - be it for personal fame or to attract people to their youtube channels - and also aim to create better and more useful content to get featured over there. I know a guy who got featured like 10 times and his channel got 15k subs now (quite a lot for a channel only about D3).

Just something to consider.

#3866108 Teamates getting discouraged too easily.

Posted GrieverZ on 24 March 2013 - 05:31 AM

Note : Would be great if this thread didn't get destroyed by pointless elitism or flat out trolling this website has been subject to for a while, i'm sure i'm not the only one that ran into that kind of issues before so i feel the discussion could be useful to more people than myself.

So, i'm playing with friends atm, both great guys i have fun with but without much experience at the higher end of the arena pole (their higher point was 2300ish in S8 where glad was like 2600-2700ish).

Always seem to see the same trend when i play in this kind of teams tough, first people are all pumped up and pretty much end up generating ridiculous expectations out of it "yeah gonna be nice gonna get glad easy blablabla".

Then we play and build our MMR and all is great again until we hit "that wall" where we actually need to start working towards improving as a team, ours was around 2k this season (wich is like top 50ish on our bgroup) atm. We were rank 35ish at some point so i don't think we were doing awefull for a new team working together.

Personally i try to be positive and i'm sure we can keep going if we work towards it and try to have fun and think its kinda pointless to worry too much about rating 2 weeks into the season, i try to spark some discussions, try out new strategies, try different calls etc to improve our chances while also listening to their opinions etc, to try to spark some teamwork.

Sadly most of those team i've been on always reach a point where people either cares way too much about rating or w/l while i don't feel its relevant or just feel discouraged at making no progress and just want to quit, or just complains about game balance non-stop or find a new team or whatever. I feel my current team has reached that point again and i'm really fucking tired of dealing with this, its not the first time and i don't feel it will be the last

How should i deal with it? Is 2 week as a new team enough to reach the top 0.5% of the ladder, if it doesn't work just call it quit or am i actually right to try and work for it? I just feel people always expect instant success and i'm sick of it.

Maybe its my attitude thats wrong? Maybe i should expect success faster like them?

I mean i want to keep playing with them, i know they're great players, one of them was Grand Master in SC2 at some point and the other is just really fun to have around, i'm just really tired of dealing with emo bullshit anytime there's a stone in the way.

Idk, only times i reached high points in the ladder was playing with past season's glad, experience goes a long way i guess.

The ladder being completly deflated doesn't help, they seem to make a big deal we're stuck at 1900-2k when by some of earlier season's standards we would be 2400+ judging by the rankings.

How do you deal with that kind of things, if some of you remember some of your first glad pushes, or even Rank 1 pushes, or things like that, is it normal? How should i try to motivate them again? Should we just chain reroll teams until we get a result that seems to satisfy them? Out of ideas.

So are rbgs the only way to get a good conquest cap as far as getting the necessary points for the better gear goes?  I feel like unless you get like 2400 in arena you're not gonna have a comparable cap and its like getting forced to do these joke rbgs.
answer is so obviously a yes i'm not even sure why you asked the question

#3812238 Remove on-use-damage PvP trinkets from the game

This would be the single best change for the overall health of the game.  They might as well change the text of the on-use to: "While doing 50% more damage, you do an additional 20% more damage."

Am I crazy or would this help tremendously?  Should I make a thread on the official forums/plead to devs?  They could replace them with whatever.  Almost anything is better than this.

alot of things would help

like deleting demonology because its a gimmicky spec where people from 1800 to 2800 do the same shit and win
