#4246741 Cheating, AJ & You

Posted Dillypoo on Yesterday, 03:24 AM

I read through a majority of these posts and I'm really hoping no one had said this already, but I still feel it's something that people don't consider too often.

Throughout playing wow I was for the most part kind of okay with boosting. It was something I didn't really like, and therefore I did not do it myself, however I still did not complain about any partners or just other high rated players I knew doing it because I would rationalize their reasoning. For some people if they're trying to play the game a very large amount and really enjoy it and wanting to be the best of the best whatever it is etc. they potentially might not be able to put in the time required (Not everyone needs to play the game a lot to stay at the highest level, but some do) because it's not really an efficient use of their time when they need to instead spend that time working. So in order for those people that want to actually be playing all the time similar to how a professional league player would play and practice, I'd rationalize it as them needing the money for to put in that time towards the game they love. And the easiest way for those people to get that money is through boosting.

However, by doing those boosts they end up hurting the competitive environment of the game they love, and also just the ladders. Instead of having the game progress into something those types of people want (i.e an esport on the same popularty of league) regardless of it's something that's possible or not they are still preventing that from happening by causing issues with competition.

But the one thing I believe people don't consider a part of any of this is DDoSing. So obviously it's clear DDoSing is a huge issue right now, people use it to get themselves their undeserved titles and those people cheating that way should be punished. Since DDoSing allows those people to get ratings they themselves couldn't have obtained without cheating, this actually can apply to those players doing Pilots. Because there is money involved in boosting, the type of people that are willing to cheat for things will definitely use that cheating to get a profit for themselves. Now instead of just only top players being able to do Pilots to earn money, you also have people with booters who can do the same thing and can use DDoS as a way to make some of their pilots possible. The same sort of thing can also be applied to wintrading and botters. The same people that will wintrade, bot, and ddos games on their main characters for their title can also do it on pilots now allowing them to get a profit off of something that was not even obtainable to them in the first place.

The TL;DR version of all of that is not everyone that pilots is a wintrading ddoser or botter, but I am pretty positive at least 90% of wintraders, ddosers, and botters will do the same on pilots in order to profit off of the game, and hell I'm sure that some top players that don't wintrade on their mains, would possibly have it done on a pilot to make it easier and less time consuming, and they probably wouldn't really care about doing that because it's not their own account.

Piloting has always been a problem and has always been bad for the game. I'd say now with things like DDoSing becoming more and more common, for blizzard and the community especially (a lot of people will overlook and rationalize piloting as oh well it's not as bad as hacking ddosing wintrading, botting w.e) to look at piloting as just as bad as any other form of cheating in the game as it also enables a bigger rise of the other forms of cheating,

they realized that if they give it today that means people who were waiting for their titles to transfer/faction change can actually benefit from the 25% deal thing, so they had to make everyone pay the full amount

I don't know... Maybe because every time I post anything on AJ, you come up and ask me something like that ? (smiley face)

And yes, this thread is about cheating, which is not the same as boosting and as such is just derailing the thread (which you said you would stop(smiley face)).
that would be because virtually all of your recent posts are complaining about wintraders, describing how they are the source of all evil in this game, and how we should all report every single wintrader we see to get their rating reset

this is while you are doing what, 100 individual rogue pilots every season? why the hell do you even care about wintraders, since you obviously don't give a fuck about the integrity of the arena ladder? oh wait, less wintrading means less inflation, means your pilots are easier to do :)

i really don't mind people who don't care about this game and see it only as a means to make money by breaking the tos - they will always exist whatever we do and that's their choice - when this game dies in a few years or so they will probably wish they hadn't, but that's another discussion entirely. i just find it incredibly ironic when they then choose to lecture the rest of us about how unmoral and terrible a rival form of cheating is - just because it makes it harder for them to exploit the ladder in their own way and make money from it

is that smiley face enough for you to understand? :)

Cheating is deplorable regardless of who is doing it. Pilots and "Boosting" are just as destructive to the ladder as ddosing/bots.  I can't fathom how people can try to justify selling carries as "ok" or "not that big of a deal".

There should be integrity in the ladder. People go into arena to compete, and there should be integrity within the rule set. Without that there is really no point to competing at all.

I don't care what rating someone happens to be or how good or bad of a player they are. The 1500 player has just as much right to a cheat free ladder as the person that is pushing 3000 rating.  I don't even understand how good or bad a player is factors into if cheating is ok or not.

I remember when I was a player trying to move up. Reading AJ was cool. I couldn't post way back then but for the most part the top end players were constructive, and had positive things to say, and they didn't shit on people that were not as good as they. They tried to help and encourage them to get better.

The AJ Community is complete shit now. Just looking at some of the responses from rank1 players in this game that overall support piloting, and cheating is disgusting.

The game isn't shit, the community at large has made the game feel like shit however.

when people like you pay people like me 200k per person to join a challenge mode group in the first month of wod, ill find this post even more hilarious then I do already :)

also lol at how your insults scale over a season

jaime reaches 2k rating playing lsd

"LOL everyone below 2k is a random duelist rat"

jaime reaches 2.5k playing lsd

"LOL everyone below 2.5k is a random duelist rat"

jaime reaches 3k playing lsd

"LOL everyone below 3k is a random duelist rat"

season ends, jaime can't gain anymore rating as lsd

"LOL everyone here is a random duelist rat who couldn't even sell boosts if they wanted to"

You know it's funny, because literally two seasons ago you were exactly that, but hey, at least you are not random now, you are arguably the most annoying and clueless person on this forum :)

most people with a problem with boosting are too shit / too unknown to get regular boosts. Hence why they don't like it, people want what they can't have. Most players dont give two shits about whether or not duelist jimmy gets his title cause some big bad r1 player beat him one game at 2400 mmr :(

Oh. My. Fucking. God.

The moment a person actually starts to tolerate you and maybe think that you'll turn out alright in the end, you write shit like this. You're a lost fucking cause, aren't you ? Take it from someone who did more boosting than you've had chance to during your little Ele Shaman escapade - if you're doing it, at least don't be a dick about it. You can't honestly believe boosting is good for this game ?

Here's a personality trait I had before. I used to be extremely hostile towards some players ( who I guess you could call "new kids on the block" ) who got Gladiator/R1 in the past, mostly because I didn't deem them worthy enough ( If I'm > them, why did they get reward >= mine ? )

But even though I was bitter towards them, I've ACCEPTED them. And do you know why ? BECAUSE those players are what keeps ARENA alive.

We have two players, Bob and Murray.

Bob is a guy with 3000 arena games in this season, Bob is a solid Duelist, but he might have a shot at Gladiator in 1000ish more games.

Murray likes chasing tail more than playing arena, but Murray wants Gladiator. Murray decides to buy Gladiator.

Bob gets at the exact rating the cutoff is at. Murray's boost knocks Bob out. Murray walks around with the title, while Bob, a legitimate player who probably would've continued playing arena if not for scumbags, is left in dirt.

Sure, Bob can try next season, and he probably will, but he's been fucked out of a title he worked really hard for, while on another hand, Murray just got his Glad achievement, title and mount, and will probably never participate in arena again at all.

TL;DR - anyone who supports boosting in any way is fucking retarded.  Timeline of events :

- R1/Gladiator means something, is a prestigious thing to acquire in this game.

- more people start playing arena

- Gladiator cutoffs lower themselves each season ( not proportional to skill )

- morons start sharing R1 titles ( while claiming they don't care about them, interestingly enough they care about them so much they're willing to scout 24/7 and play hard to land at share rating )

- at one point, old, better players start separating themselves from new players ( community divided )

- new players' entry into highrated PvP scene becomes very hard

- boosting starts being a regular thing

- cheating becomes a regular thing

- DDOSing becomes a regular thing

- PvP quality continously declines

- "who gives a shit about this game omfg, new players suck, boosting cheating etc"

You're all fucking hypocrites, and more importantly, morons. Saying you give a shit about a pixelated title doesn't make you less of a person, and taking MASSIVE shits on the thing you love playing for the sake of "reputation" is basically taking shits on yourself. "Yeah man, my hobby totally blows, I'd rather eat hot horse shit than do it, but I'm still doing it". Bunch of imbeciles.

bodybuilders are strong no doubt but your average bodybuilder compared to your average strongman or olympic powerlifter is not really a competition.

bodybuilders = aesthetics
strongman = functional strength
powerlifter = conventional strength (squat, deadlift, bench)

#4224211 The Official AJ Vote

Posted Breadstick on 05 October 2014 - 01:13 AM

i don't think capstone comes off as biased at all

he's repeatedly said mages are a better class than hunters, but you have to actually put some kind of effort and thought into your play to take full advantage of it

it's really a classic argument that's been around forever and is still true. you can easily tell the difference between a good and bad mage. the class has the ability to control the entire game if put in the right hands, but if the player doesn't know what he's doing, he's useless

can anyone tell the difference between a gladiator hunter and a r1 hunter other than things like consistency, positioning and knowing when to be offensive/defensive etc. which aren't really related to class mechanics, but just general arena knowledge? it's the same thing for enhance shamans

it's not an insult to players who play hunters either, because you still have to be relatively smart at arena in general, but your challenge ends there because playing your class is about as simple as memorizing a dps rotation while occasionally deciding to throw out one of your instant ccs that nobody can do anything to stop

hunters are a poorly designed class because it's easy to take full advantage of them but impossible to do pretty much anything that requires finesse or separates you from everyone else playing the class; the player is almost a non-factor. this benefits the unskilled and punishes the skilled, the opposite of what mages have pretty much always been
