#4058807 Don't be an asshole

Posted Nadagast on 21 February 2014 - 12:09 AM

I'm sure everyone has seen how much trolling and general douchebaggery have infected AJ.  I'd like it to stop.

Trolling and assholery puts AJ on a downward spiral.  People troll/asshole-it-up, which leads to less people using this as a forum for serious/reasonable discussion, which leads to more trolling, etc.  AJ always was and continues to be the most popular place for new players to get into the PvP scene.  Any community relies on new members to sustain itself--by making this place a wasteland we are doing nothing but ensuring our own demise.

Before you post a reply or topic, ask yourself: am I being an asshole?  If you are, change your post to take a more educational tone.  If you're feeling heated about something, take some time to cool off before replying.  Don't immediately assume someone is trolling you, some people are just not very knowledgeable.  Worst case, if you reply in a calm educational manner, you've posted something informative for the hundreds or thousands of lurkers who will view your reply.  These are generally newer PvPers, and anything you do to help sustain them as arena players helps all of us.

On any set of forums, it's easy to forget that almost all of the people reading it are lurkers, who will never make any posts.  Lurkers cannot be trolls, they can't be assholes, they are just here to learn or read interesting things.  Post interesting, informative content.  Post drama if you want, but don't be an asshole.  Fuck the trolls, post for the lurkers.


#4024045 shaman goat

Posted Jahmilli_ on 03 January 2014 - 11:13 PM

I also believe that comps like goat shaman, or mainly just shaman tongues in general, are the reason damage modifiers are so out of control. If you cannot win without consistently landing CC (something that is VERY difficult to do against any shaman team), then how are you supposed to ever beat it? Over the top burst windows.

You cannot tone down one without toning down the other.


#4024027 shaman goat

Posted Jahmilli_ on 03 January 2014 - 11:00 PM

The main issue with SGX isn't the amount of instant CC it has, and it isn't the amount of damage it's able to put out. Multiple comps have more CC and more damage than SGX, but aren't nearly as strong.

The main issue with it is how difficult it is to control, and how little the classes have to do to avoid CC (compared to other comps). People just want simple answers as to why a comp is out of control, and usually those answers come out right as you die, that's when you're most annoyed. "I CANT EVEN FUCKING PLAY MY CHARACTER" or  "90K ICE LANCE WHAT A FUCKING JOKE." A lot of people don't really think of what goes on during the entire game, just towards the end when they're dead or about to die. From my experience it seems that most people (mainly casters of course) can't even think of the actual reason why SGX is so miserable to play against, but all of them know that they hate fighting it.


The shaman and the goat PASSIVELY (this is the worst part) make up for some of the biggest weaknesses of EVERY class, (excluding casters). The comp alone is the sole reason a lot of comps are no longer viable, and also the sole reason a lot of classes (mainly physical and healers) are viable.

- RET goat shaman (Ret easily controlled by casters / lacks CC)

- DK goat shaman (squishy / lack CC and mobility)

- FERAL goat shaman (Feral easily feared / very squishy outside of CDs / lacks CC)

- HOLY (Priest/Paladin) goat shaman (Priest and Paladin both easily controlled by casters)

- MONK (WW and MW) goat shaman (MW Monk easily controlled by non warlock/spriest casters, assuming they're undead.)
   (WW Monk unique playstyle / very squishy outside of CDs / lacks CC)

- HUNTER goat shaman (Hunter very squishy vs casters / easily feared)

Almost every spec above is NOT viable at a high level outside of SGX.

The hunter alone has enough CC to make up for any that his X lacks, and the shaman alone has enough ways to keep their DPS/Healer out of CC

Goat shaman (especially shaman) is also the bane of any wizard cleave, they are non-existent. The ONLY viable wizard cleaves are ones with shamans, and even those should get demolished by SGX.

The class simplifies and limits any comp its a part of, and any comp it plays against. There is only so much you can do... they lack depth.

Another one of the comps best qualities is how easy it is to maintain proper positioning in comparison to other comps. This mainly has to do with the shaman, and this is also my biggest issue with the class in general. Shamans are an extremely defensive class (If you ever play or watch any 3v3 game go to dampening, 99% of the time there will be at least 1 shaman in the arena), they don't really have any real CC, they are VERY disruptive, and they're the most difficult class to control. It's rare to catch a shaman out of position, because majority of the time there really is no reason to be. That's why I think it's much simpler to play any shaman comp than it is to play nearly ANY other comp in the game.

Being able to effectively use your healer CC offensively while maintaining proper positioning is a HUGE part of your teams success. Many healers and teams struggle with this.

You will not be competitive at a high level in arena without effective fears from your priest.

You will not be competitive at a high level in arena without effective clones from your druid.

You will not be competitive at a high level in arena without effective Hojs/fears/repents from your paladin.

You will not be competitive at a high level in arena without effective incaps/stuns/roots from your monk.

You WILL be competitive at a high level in arena without effective.... 45second CD hexes...... from your shaman.

Shamans do NOT CC, they PREVENT CC. They slow down the tempo of every arena they enter. That's also another reason you won't ever see a high rated shaman comp without some kind of cast reduction spell (Curse of enfeeblement / Goat / Mind numbing) on their team. They need to slow games down and simplify them as much as possible in order to win. That's also why they are so weak against melee cleaves, or just any melee in general. (there is no ability you can press to reverse bloodlust a melee class).

Not to mention they walk in arena with a PASSIVE damage and healing buff to everyone on their team. Grace of Air (3000 mastery)

I'm not sitting here saying it is unstoppable. I am saying that the amount of effort and coordination required to win games, in comparison to every other comp in the game, is much less as Shaman Goat, and I think every goat and shaman would agree that without each other, they wouldn't have nearly as much success in arenas.

tl;dr make this tournament legit or get 1k views. Make a prequalified tournament to select few teams to randomize the chance for wining, thus attracting more players and views.

peaceout!

Don't know about you, but I want to watch a tournament filled with some of the best players in Europe + maybe some top teams from the US.

No offence, but who cares to watch a tournament with 2k rated players just so they can have a chance at winning? Whereas if you have Trille, Blukstack, Minpojke, Zunni, Baten (to name a few good players from EU), people are going to watch for sure.

I'm glad that there's going to be more wow tourneys in the near future though.

I don't really want to go in to why this is my opinion, because the majority of this community is incredibly negative and I will just get flamed.

You sir are a total joke, Im pretty sure you transfered over to Stormstrike and made the team name "Rank one I take that" After seeing you go 50-4 2501 MMR and within the week as well as  que dodging me nonstop. It was safe to say the only way i could face you is with a snipe.
Well Sure enough what happened?  RamboJohny proceeds to snap your neck over and over and over and over again, And forcing you to disband your team within 12 hours because your a 70% win ratio. I Do believe it was 9-2(should of 9-1 But disconnect) and you whispering my warrior that "you guys own us", Were thinking about transfering off" "you guys are gods""RamboJohny uses GCD Global hack nobody can heal through are Burst DPS"  
Dont worry you 17 yr old pasty boy,  Im 29 yrs old Do you think I really care about my ego in this game? I'm 6'2 215 Jacked out of my mind. I Make a 175k a year working for the feds, Do you think I care about making money off this game? I've been playing since Beta back in 04 and Gotten a drake every season i've played since season 1 and enjoy playing the game to spend some hours and waste some time.
Now it appears you got a new team name "Gladiator i take that" And once again you continue to que dodge us, Me and my teamates logg in.  You logg out.  You play at 3-5am Playing who knows? to keep building up your rating   Some day you will grow some nuts and realize you can't hang in the big leagues
The time will come this monday morning for your weekly beatdown on stormstrike when were both 2620+, Well let me take that back..... Hopefully you can still hang and reach those 2600's because i see you keep tanking than getting feed points by your "boys"

Ask anybody on stormstrike who knows about are history this season,  Pretty sure every person will confirm me owning you 9-2 and almost forcing you into sliting your throat live on webcam as well as disbanding your "rank one i take that" team

P.S Do you really think these teams would "feed me" who are on bubble glad? Im pretty sure its the last 2 weeks of the season, and alot of the teams who are on the bubble are just trying to snag 1-2 wins to jump a couple positions, It's only top 7 on stormstrike.  Get a life kid, and stop whispering me every hour of the day trying to build up your "world of warcraft ego" And Im sure your telling all your twitch.tv or "All the known people" in this game your fake story, Or "want to believe story" This is a game, Your still that same pathetic loser when you look into that mirror and see what a disgrace you are in this county.

Come at me bro and grow some nuts when your ready to get your neck snapped again

A lot of innocent players got banned... it's pretty obvious.
When you queue and randomly get a win trading team it's not your fault and you shouldn't be penalized. I queued a bunch of RBGs and constantly got those teams. I play with people in those bgs every week and some of them got banned for 3 days. Seems like they just picked who they banned out of a hat. Don't understand why people want these players to be penalized by removing gear... that's obviously not the solution.
