#4425235 Has WoW PvP ever been balanced?

Posted ysnakewoo on 16 May 2015 - 04:16 PM

S10 was one of the most balanced sessions. They fucked it up with MMR change mid-season. The only dumb thing was double Starsurge legendary staff procs, but not a lot of players had legendaries so it was k.

No.

He rode the wave of goodness that was created by Kalgan and was the first one to slowly ruin the game. Don't ever forget he is the one that gave dispel to every healer and removed it from sp/ret, handed out self heals like cookies and started the road towards complete homogenization we are on right now.
this is factually wrong

most people refer to WotLK as the best expansion

WotLK is also the expansion that had the best sub numbers/statistics

Ghostcrawler was the lead systems designer for that expansion

wave of goodness created by Kalgan and Tigole was shit like mace stun and a meta that implied that each class will have only 1 viable arena spec (never actually happened and several classes were more or less unplayable in arena), pvp trinket that removed only 3 types of effects (until later in tbc), only 2 classes with 50% mortal strike debuffs (making them mandatory to have for a viable comp, outside of vipersting/manadrain "run you dry" setups that people figured out way later), 2v2s that lasted 4+ hours being an accepted part of the game, and various other amazing perks. i mean, PvE (both solo and raid stuff) had just as many examples of utterly terrible design

people really forget how actually SHIT vanilla and TBC were gameplay-wise. don't get me wrong, my best times in this game were mostly in TBC, but that doesn't mean the designs were actually good. it was a different time. this doesn't mean that Kalgan or Tigole are bad game designers either - someone had to do the mistakes to learn from.

also you have to understand what 'lead systems design' actually implies. for example, wow has pretty decent core gameplay, what sucks are mostly the systems - e.g. 4 difficulties of the exact same instance being a pretty fucking shit idea. or there being no team charters, which in turn allows you to just log on whatever class/alt you have and just instantly queue your fotm setup at no penalty whatsoever, which results in everybody just playing fotm shit exclusively. or s10 having good gameplay but being completely ruined by the matchmaking/ladder system around it - this is a legit mistake you could credit to GC. but he did design a lot of good shit too.

its kind of idiotic to praise WotLK as the best thing ever and then go hate on the dude that was heavily involved in making it what it was. he's also the only dev to interact this closely with the community, and he's the REASON there's so many blue posts daily and devs just casually talking to us on twitter - he's the one who set this example. it must suck to give so much to a community only to receive a hate bandwagon in response. no wonder he left.

Welp Blizzard, you got me, you got me really good.

It was so awful of me using a bot to level my alts.

Wow, I cheated so hard, I can't believe I ruined everyone elses gameplay by leveling my own alts using a bot!!!!!

Its a good thing you are going after the real cheaters, and letting the people who wintrade, and ddos go free, they are obviously not worth your time.



Blizzard is dead, and WoW will be dead before the end of the year.

Posted Jinngo on 12 May 2015 - 11:13 AM

The mechanics is retarded and it is a great change. Now sure rets are not in the best spot right now that is true. But trust me when I say that is atleast not what is holding you back from getting gladiator.


#4421875 Shadow Priest Damage Rotation

Posted Lolflay on 11 May 2015 - 10:39 AM

Just for anyone else who might be having similar question ( I don't know what was yours, as you've deleted it - which is by far the worst thing you can do when internet etiquette is in regard - someone might have a similar question down the road and stumble upon this thread by googling or w/e )


Standard "passive" rotation is just keeping SWP and VT up while Mind Blasting everytime it's off cooldown, and using Mind Flay as a filler.

If you're left alone ( let's say, turbocleave training your mage, windshearing your healer, leaving you alone ) - VT+SWP the off target and Mind Spike the kill target while Mind Blasting off cooldown - if you're running Clarity of Power, that's by far the best damage rotation you can do on a target WHILE LEFT ALONE. When you're at 4 shadow orbs, and your Mage wants to go ( has deep freeze/has damage ), Mind Spike->SWP->VT->Mind Blast->Horror->Mind Flay->Mind Blast->Devouring Plague ( make sure Horror hits the moment your mage wants to go, coordinate it a bit earlier ). It's not A LOT of damage, but it's extra bit of damage that might make a difference.

Sub 20% ( SWD ) range, just MB and SWD on CD and Devouring Plague whenever you have the orbs for it.


Also, if you're playing with a druid and he cycloned a target on low, or your target is, let's say a Mage in RMD where you kept his druid controlled and he wasn't to heal the mage up during ice block - when targets are coming out of a immunity, sync up a Mind Spike->Mind Blast the moment they're coming out of a immunity for some odd 60k burst.

( for the last trick, you need to have a cancelaura macro, considering you'll oftentimes find yourself with instant mindspike procs which disallow you that perfect same moment spike->blast - I've macro'd it in my cancelaura dispersion macro, it looks something like this

Quote

/cancelaura Dispersion
/cancelaura Surge of Darkness
)


As for Devouring Plague usage - you should actually use it as much as you can. So if you are certain you'll have 3 Shadow Orbs for the next "go go go" moment ( mage deeping the healer, you horroring the kill target ), Devouring Plague whenever you feel like the damage can stick ( trinket proc(s), healer CS'd, anything )

Nobody truly knows how old a Mage is. They can grow to be centuries old, their age is irrelevant.

WoW is not a fast paced game so you can still be competitive even if you are old. It's mostly because of the GCD that limits you to only one action per 1-1.5s.

For fast paced games like SC2 It's better to be young. Old sc2 players like white-ra are performing very poorly in competitions.

Be expecting some buffs to the Horde racials in a patch or two (or definitely next expac) so Blizzard can force all the Alliance PvPers back horde to make more faction change $$$$$


Especially because of this quote from MMO champion:



What they did to the game is pretty disgusting.

yea its truly sad how many times they've done this, to force people to race/ faction change in order to excel at certain aspects of the game due to racials. lol i remember when worgen first came out they nerfed human trinket to 3 minutes, i remember changing races to go worgen, then about a month later they reverted the human trinket back to 2 minutes. i had to call blizz probably around 10 times before they finally refunded my race change and brought me back human. why not just allow everyone to be whatever faction/ race they want to be and make racials a glyph or a part of everyone spec or something that you can change to whatever racial you want?
