#4374857 What motivates you to play arena?

Posted Lolflay on 28 January 2015 - 10:49 AM

When you have a good, stable team that you've played with for a long time, this game is actually fun. Because winning is fun. Checked Wallirikz's stream a few days ago, watching them play that LSD reminded me how fun it is to play on a top tier team.

It's also fun to PvE with friends, maybe even hunt some hard to get achis. Mostly Feats of Strength though.

Other than that, WoW can suck my dick.

PvP wise, battlegrounds are not fun since the days of requiring 40 marks of specific BG per season to buy offpieces ( TBC ), world pvp doesn't exist since Elemental Plateau and Isle of Quel'Gankas days, arena is not fun at all ( unless, as I've said, you're on a top tier team ).

PvE also blows unless it's Mythic raiding.

Community of this game is a shadow of itself compared to before, WoW forums aren't worth shit since 2006, Arenajunkies is slowly dying ( I remember not being online for 7 days, witnessing 100 pages worth of posts in specific battlegroup threads alone, let alone class forums, general discussion, etc ), people are bitter and write posts that both defend the game ( when someone makes a remark on how unfun the game is, immediate responses who people who probably feel the same way : "quit then" ) and then attack the game at the same time.

Not to mention that there are still morons who cling on to their elitist ways, when the situation of the game is that they should be breeding new partners/opponents, instead of blocking the way for new players. These are not the WoTLK times when people were massively getting into PvP and had the motivation to become better due to that sick video they just saw on arenajunkies/Warcraftmovies. No matter how much of a dick Snutz was, I can bet his S8 video(s) got quite a lot of people to play a Warlock to Glad and above levels. These are the times when people simply don't give a fuck due to how butchered PvP became, so it kind of feels counterproductive to deny people. When your kingdom is falling apart, you don't enforce rules which threaten the rise of population, and you don't try to stay above it all - even the kings have to stoop down to peasant level when shit hits the fan.

That's my opinion. Wall of text'd nigs.


#4373621 RBG Tournament: Battle of the Atlantic Worlds Reveal Show

Posted Glink on 27 January 2015 - 12:07 PM

Im watching bailamos' e-girlfriend #142 streaming with the worlds best rbg team on twitch at the momemt (I say that sarcastically of course because winning in RBGs is like fly hacking and ddosing in the special olympics)

I can't put my finger on exactly what urks me.

Maybe its the fact that these twitch girls are willing to shamelessly get carried by means of online relationship, maybe its the fact that any individual who knows how to mash keys can obtain rating when in the right group, maybe its how sad I feel for bailamos that he needs a new e-girlfriend ever 2 weeks and that rbg rating may be the only achievement of his life.

Whatever the case, I sit here, late night, browsing twitch. My attention is drawn to this new stream girl, aka bailamos' e-girlfriend #463 who started streaming 2 days ago has accumulated a months pay of minimum wage in donation money and hundreds of viewers. Viewers watching as she idley sits at the base, being a goddess to all neckbeards but maybe just average looking in real life, staring blankly into her monitor, devoid of any emotion, occasionally giggling at a snide and unfunny remark by her lover and life partner for the next 13 days, bailamos, as if to be playing her part as a new actor in a stage preformance, this is one of either comedy or tragedy, I cannot tell which is more accurate.

I hear the voices of familiar players in the rbg call, obeying their leader bailamos, making nonchalant and snide remarks, like a big group of friends under the rule of their ring leader. I reach a moment of clarity, no matter how much of a loser or conplete joke I know their leader to be, the fact of the matter is he has support, and his followers march on, like soldiers through a war zone. Its all linked, Justin Biener, Rebecca Black, Kaceytron, the horrid, talentless, skilless jack offs who yet still garner mass appeal and support feed off the ignorant and weak, its all linked, bailamos is just another form of this. We live in a world of followers, bystanders, a crowd following the latest trend, or what they precieve to be the latest trend. Lemmings, all of them.

I sit now, in the dark, contemplating my life, its meaning, and why everything is so wrong, I recall a scene from a classic film:

"[riding down the beach in the last scene] Oh my God... I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it. [falls to his knees screaming] YOU MANIACS! YOU BLEW IT UP! AH, DAMN YOU! GOD DAMN YOU ALL TO HELL! (camera pans to reveal the half-destroyed Statue of Liberty sticking out of the sand)"

Where art though Reedwise? Where ist though RBG team which once led the charge like the riders of Rohan coming down upon the orcs? Where is the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing? They have passed like rain on the mountain, like wind in the meadow. The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow. How did it come to this?

#4370126 Is Holinka the worst thing that happenned to WoW PvP ?

Posted Tekkys on 24 January 2015 - 05:03 PM

Why do people even direct hatred to GC and Holinka based on the state of the game? Does no one remember the meeting where Blizzard literally said that if there was something cool they could do for pvp, but it MIGHT negatively effect pve, the devs yell "shut up pvp guy!". Neither GC or Holinka have 100% creative freedom when it comes to the game, and are trying to balance the game while walking on a tight rope with 60 mph winds blowing every direction. The only things you can get angry at GC/Holinka about are their personal statements; i don't think Holinka has ever said anything morbidly wrong, but GC has said his fair share of stupid shit.

Edit: Not to mention GC was hired by Riot Games to balance League of Legends content. The guy knows his shit, he just was never given the chance to really do anything with it. If he shits the bed at Riot then we'll know if it was truly his own incompetence or if his hands were just tied.

MoP has been a complet piece of shit since the beginning to WoD ...
WoD is the exact same thing as MoP or maybe even worse
Oh well, he added Swifty NPC and Bajheera NPC, yeah nice change ...
He had to make arena cross realm and everything because the game came very unpopular in PvP/Arena
They also had to merge realms together because customers keep de-subbing ...

MoP and WoD are still far superior to Cataclysm - the "masterpiece" of Ghostcrawler. Xrealm arenas and removing teams was actually a really good chance - people can actually play more now and try different comps. It was very sad that people was sitting at their ratings from the first two weeks of the season - only the bottom of the ladder was active. There has been dead realms since TBC and again it was really good change to start the server merges.

This thread is just attention seeking bullshit with zero clue about anything. Holinka has made some mistakes, but he has done far better job than Ghostcrawler ever did.

Ghostcrawler and his "bring the player not the class" bullshit is the worst thing that happened to WoW.


Well that would've been rly great if it was true - the game should be moer about how you play rather than what and with what class you play. Sadly ,  i don't really think there was ever a time where the player skill was enough to overwhelm counterclasses with average or higher gameplay and knowledge.

Posted Breadstick on 24 January 2015 - 04:45 AM

it's hilarious watching streams of people queueing into nessper's rld and losing and acting like they're victims for being forced to play against that

then they have some new way to justify queue dodging by saying nessper's team "ruins the ladder" and "nobody good keeps queueing into them because it's not fun"

it's actually so embarrassing

Posted Diasleramo on 20 January 2015 - 05:06 AM

God why can't people just keep stuff life this off of forums? OBVIOUSLY it will get fixed if it's brought to their attention.... You'd think people would want an exploit like this to last a long time. That only happens when people keep their mouth's shut. We've all spent hundreds of dollars on blizzard services, I think we all deserved some of these low prices. Next time something like this comes around don't jump out of your seats to spread awareness of it and ruin it for everyone.

Got an e-mail that mine is in the mail. Not sure what the hell I'm going to do with it. It can fight the Skyrim dragon or something.

I'd prefer something in game honestly.
I'd most definitely prefer this over something in-game. One day the servers will go down and then everything you've ever gotten will be nothing but memories. A solid piece of art like this is for a lifetime.
