#4159825 How and why is this possible?

Posted Korzul on 01 July 2014 - 12:11 PM

Dunno, on the one hand they'd forced your trinket/NG proc previously leaving you with nothing.

On the other hand its being 100-0'd in the space of a silence, solo, with zero help (not even a living bomb) from his partner.

Can't help but feel if your popping everything into a full health target when your partner can't connect you shouldn't be rewarded as much as you are right now. Yet blizz prefer this sort of gameplay because dps don't constantly whine about unkillable healers and they'd rather have random globals/quicker games than the alternative.

Season 2:

oh yeah, mana drain in general. I'm double R1 Warlock from that era, btw.  Wanna know what my first global was most games?

Drain Mana

Merciless Gladiator Cops

and please don't talk about Wrath like DFO/Shadowmourne were balanced. Or like casters from that era were balanced in general. Prot specs in arena, double healer still viable...

People just don't see the pattern because, often times, it benefits them. The game has never been good. Never been a single good season. It was more competitive because more people cared and less people knew how shitty it was at the top, but that's the only difference. Never been balanced.

You're forgetting as well that 3v3 didn't become the focus of the serious arena player until around the third tournament - everyone assumed 5v5 was the biggest and thus, the most important. 2s was garbage; could die to idiots using Shadow Resist or Mage/Mage nonsense. I mean, I played SL/SL/healer but of course I don't include that as a bullshit comp because it was mine.

But look how fucking dumb it was like, a bot could Drain Mana just like a bot could play Hunter ATM.

Oh yeah, and everyone with a magic dispel(which back then wasn't "everyone") could dispel automatically. The same as interrupt hacking now except with dispel. The only difference is, you can outplay interrupt hacking whereas you can't outplay a dispel mod unless you just don't debuff them.

Posted washboardabsx on 29 June 2014 - 03:26 PM

I can't believe people are crying about the catch-up cap. Wow you have 20k to cap? Be glad they even allow catching up now. Does everyone forget a mere season or two ago when there wasn't any catching up? Or how about all the BS pve gear? Yep that's gone too.

I agree deserter sucks for I indeed tanked my 2s rating too. But it had to be implemented. 2s is the gateway to arena and 1100's should never be facing gladiators. We want more participation in arena and by having them hazed by glads in the 1100 bracket is counterproductive. It turns many away.

And flavour. Stop. You're too white for that sh*t. And frankly no one respects it. You sound like a wanna-be vanilla ice ice tea ice cube gangsta fruitcake. Right when Regentlord left the flame is carried by someone else, you...seriously why does someone always fill in the others place since I can remember?

Finally @ Lolflay...what's happened? Since TBC you were my priest hero always adding great input to the game. I loved reading your insightful posts and you definitely made me want to be like you on my priest. But ever since you've left the game all your posts seem to be trolling or complaints. Like an old renowned star that's become senile about the sport they've played. It's depressing.

Saying " This class is dumb because blabla" is pointless and dumb. You can't just say that without knowing what team this class play, and against who, and where.

As a holy paladin, i find mage more dumb than ele, just because of how my class works against mage. I find mage's role in a war/mage/x or sp/mage/x against me really easy, and my opinion will change if this mage play something else.

Personnal example : i played a lot monk/dk/pal, and against KFC, we have absolutly nothing to do, just train the blue, sometimes make a real switch on a distracted warrior. Next match, sp/mage/pal on Blade's edge, and we have to do 1877646235 things perfectly to win compared to the enemy team.

Holy Paladin, with my team, against KFC is really dumb. Just HoJ someone when it's up, freedom your mate randomly, and cast denounce and the poor blue.

Holy Paladin, with my team, against shatter or war/mage is really hard.

Same for every class, same for every spec.

Even an elemental shaman can be harder to play against some team than mages. And vice versa.

#4138913 Removing the cyst that are known wintraders and ddosers from site

Posted Vanguards on 10 June 2014 - 07:13 PM

Drpro has been banned, had to verify with the VOD. Usually skype logs can't really be used as evidence since it's easily faked, however admitting it yourself on a stream is another thing.

DDOSers and wintraders with concrete proof will be banned, however this is a hard thing to do. It's very rare people openly admit to it on stream. Evidence such as in game messages and skype logs are really hard to verify with.

As of the moderator issue, most of the moderators of this site has been cleaned many times. If you have a problem with any of the moderators make sure to PM me.

As always make sure to use the report feature! That's usually the fastest way to notify a mod about an issue with a post or user.

"Are you jealous of me getting a chance to play something that's incredibly unfinished, buggy and not even close to what it'll look like when released, and even the release version will suck because this game sucks"

Sums it up quite nicely.

TBC was pretty great if you played one of the 6 viable specs.

Arms Warr ( 2s 3s 5s )

Affli Warlock ( 2s 3s 5s )

Holy Paladin ( 2s for majority of xpack, 3s 5s )

Resto Druid ( 2s 3s 5s )

Disc Priest ( 2s 3s 5s )

Shadow Priest ( 2s 3s 5s )

Frost Mage ( 2s 3s 5s )

Sub Rogue ( 2s 3s 5s )

Mut Rogue ( 2s 3s )

MM Hunter ( 2s 3s 5s )

BM Hunter ( 2s 5s )

Resto Shaman ( 2s 3s 5s )

Ele Shaman ( 3s 5s )

Enh Shaman ( 3s )

Ret Paladin ( 2s, 3s if full Sunwell geared )

Feral Druid ( 2s 3s, if pve geared like a boss )

Destruction locks ( 5s, if pve geared like a boss )

That's 17 specs out of 27, more than half classes/specs were viable.

You have an interesting trait of opening your mouth without knowing what you're talking about ( next to "ah yep I played this class to 2400 easy yet I'm stuck on 2100 on my main" )


EDIT2

Let's compare that to this then

So currently we have 11 classes

Arms Warriors

Frost Mages

Affliction Warlocks

Destruction Warlocks

Balance Druids

Feral Druids

Resto Druids

Holy Priests

Shadow Priests

Sub Rogues

Combat Rogues

Holy Paladins

Ret Paladins ( lol )

MM Hunters

Survival Hunters

Unholy DKs

Enh, Ele, Resto Shams

WW Monks

Healer Monks


That's 21 specs out of 33 in the game that are currently *viable*. Damn, TBC was so poorly balanced.

I love how people point to season 5 when someone glorifies wotlk. It's as if you people actually think anyone thought s5 was a "good" season. When people praise wotlk, they are talking about the fun/craziness from s7/s8.

Everything in terms of late expansions:

Nostalgia (I have no clue how to quantify this so maybe just ignore this one) :
BC>Wotlk>Cata

Balance: Every expansion sucks with this. Wotlk had the most overall viability free (I am willing to debate this any day), but then  you obviously had the caster/shadowmourne issues, so it's maybe something like this-

MOP(???, I played this expansion for like 2 weeks)>Wotlk>Cata>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>turd>>>>>>>>>>>>TBC

Arena Fundamentals:This is just pure arena skills that exist abstract of all the artificial "skill" created through all the stupid bullshit over the years. A general trend is that more ability float=less pure arena fundamentals and more reliance on how you use your cds. Arena fundamentals also factors in things such as actually having to cast, extreme emphasis on positioning, and coordination required. Because of the first 2, I put cata and much further down because that's when they decided that nobody liked those things.
TBC>Wotlk>>>>>>>Cata>MOP

Arena Fun: (this is obviously the most subjective )
Retail:
TBC>WOTLK>MOP>Cata
Going back and playing each expansion without all the nostalgia:
Wotlk>>>MOP>TBC>Cata
(tbc is full of so much terrible design issues if you actually go back and try it that it's actually hugely problematic. . . also the lack of balance and slow pace is frustrating)

Sense of "Community" and Life:
Wotlk(this is when tournaments became a lot more publicized)=TBC(more forum help than wotlk)>>>>>>>>>MOP>>>Cata
AJ completely tanked in cata. You used to be able to mash f5 on aj in wotlk and see lopez and friends everywhere. You could also find hundreds of pages in one tournament thread. In cata, it was like sometimes one post per day. MOP has a little bit more of a community as aj is more active, and there's more followings, and a little bit more of a yearning for more tournaments and stuff. People are also a lot nicer here than in bc/wotlk. That probably has something to do with the fact that many of the posters here have been here for a long time, and they are finally growing up.

PVP Videos:
I don't even need to use lots of>>>>'s because it's fairly obvious how this is going to go down. TBC and Wotlk by far had a lot a lot a lot more pvp videos. Cata had a few gems here and there such as Reckful 3, but in general people stopped pumpin them up. And now in MOP, they barely exist at all.
Speaking of WoW movies, this gets my vote for best arena movie of 2014 http://www.warcraftm...w.php?id=240631 (of course it will never be popularized because it's 5 years too late but w/e)



TL;DR: Ban all Cata and MOP players from arena junkies :duckers:
I tried really hard to put cata #1 for one of the categories, but I hated it so idk.

Posted Lolflay on 13 May 2014 - 08:55 PM

I've played all of TBC, WoTLK, played first half of S9, renewed a bit for last half of S11, bought MoP and played 1 week of S12, and playing now since start of S15.

All of those times I was moderately to highly successful, and I can without a doubt in my mind say that S2, S3, S7 and S8 were the best periods this game ever had. People are also saying that S10 was very good, but from what I've heard ( people abusing MMR like retards to stay at ratings nobody could even imagine of attaining after MMR's were reset ( I was given Sai as an example ) ), it wasn't all that great.

PvP was just better because the core of PvP is the community, and community was a lot less fragmented back then, and a lot more people knew each other. Right know only the people at the top communicate with each other and resemble anything similar of a community that once existed, whereas back in the day even the top PvPers couldn't be assholes because they were a part of a server community.


Also the drama was a lot better, and on the plus side, everyone knew who those crappy players were who got their r1's from 5s. ( I remember a really crap priest on Rampage getting r1 in 5s then being farmed in 3s by Duelist teams, fun times ).


( which is not to say that I don't enjoy the game currently - it's simply different than it used to be, sure, worse in some areas, sure, better in some areas, but overall different - and yeah I consider most of new players to not be extremely skilled at some areas in which older players were, but Blizzard is there to be thanked for that, for removing some crucial components that were once required to win, and now needed once every 100 games simply because everything got simplified )
