#4420759 WoW Sub loss.

Don't think of it as a "sub loss," rather think of it as making room for diehard fans for the epic 6.2 patch. You remember those long queue times when WoD first hit? The people that left were the ones clogging up the system for you elite few.

Are you're trolling?  I'm pretty sure most people would rather decent flowing queues.  Removing everyone but the elite means queues take forever and/or become non-existent outside of primetime hours or scheduled matches.  You end up with more sniping/dodging when the ladder is thin.  Would rather just get a decent amount of games in and tolerate that some will be vs. goods, some vs. bads, and some auto win/loss cause bad design.

Of course, the population/activity tie-in with shitty balance and awful design decisions.  When you create awful fotm/meta conditions, you lose people, which further reinforces awful ladder conditions.  Runaway effect gg.

Right now the game is worse than badly designed -- it just feels plain dead.  These 7.1 million "subs" somehow widdles down FAST.  Based on several screenshots, this translates to ~40 people in stormwind (US-Tichondrius) around prime time hours with maybe 10-15 in elwynn forest and the rest scattered in WoD-land.  Thats our "best and most populous faction/server in the US".  These 7.1 million "subs" somehow translate into 3-4 actual RBG teams and a pool of maybe 30 high-end arena players who mix and match arena charters.

So the sub loss is real and its effects even more so.  From 7.1 million subs you somehow map to an active arena ladder that is logarithmically reduced.  I.e. Ln(7,100,000) ~= 16 teams?

People only do rbgs at the start of the season to raise their caps, then participation drops.  After that they queue them to gear alts, try to get achieves most people already have from previous seasons, do carries, random fun, or to get 1 point per win and -20 points and MMR per loss.

Rbgs have a lot of competitive potential but no one cares if they can't get above 2k rating, then lose 14 points to a 2400 rated team, while the 2400 rated team loses a month's worth of MMR if they lose once.  Yeah, it would honestly be better if the top team was 2700 and achieves like 2.2k-2.4k were possible for the top 1% of players.  Even people who "don't like rbgs" can admit that a 10v10 bracket with objectives has enormous competitive potential which currently is neglected.  The reasons rbgs suck are being stated here, so to say that they suck is being redundant and only supplements the arguments.  Rbgs could be more competitive than arena, and they're often more balanced than arena especially if you've played classes like DK or monk throughout MoP, but the achieves aren't within reach of good players.  And even if they are titles likes Hero are laughable, not even close to glad, and most people have them already from wintrade seasons and all sorts of nonsense.

I was going to draw on the irony that someone with a severe speech impediment is calling me retarded but thankfully I don't feel the need to sink to your level of personal attacks in order to better convey my opinions.

You can attack me, post about me, tell me where to go, but it isn't going to change anything, and I'm not going to stop posting because you or anyone else here dislikes me - as far as I'm aware, AJ isn't a popularity contest. You want to talk in private, go to skype, if you post publicly don't try and dictate who can or cannot post too. That in itself is truly retarded.

Good day.

"you are the scourge of the gaming community"
"he wants you to leave because you're a fucking retard"
"at least some of what I post is moderately funny, you're just an idiot"
"you can't comprehend that people just don't like you"
"your new display pic takes you from a 6/10 to a 4.5/10"

You made some pretty specific personal attacks there actually, you did attack me personally and don't back track on that. Own it, don't try and pretend like you didn't say anything personal. I'm not going to shake the hand of someone who spits on my back. You've told me several times in a few threads now to stop talking, stop replying and other offensive shit which I haven't cared to really take seriously until now, so yeah you have tried to control where I am or not posting, and now you've changed that to trying to actually dictate the content I post to befit your personal taste. For what it's worth, I don't really find any of your posts funny, all I have seen has been misogynistic, sad or self fellating. So the dislike is mutual.

You touched on your lisp, and the definition of retarded being "less advanced in mental, physical or social development". I didn't really want to go into it, but I can touch on it. Lisps are caused as you almost definitely know by the person not announcing properly, there are some suggestion that it is caused by structural abnormalities in the teeth or jaw but is more widely accepted as being purely a bad habit, or immature development. So yeah, that could be counted as you being less advanced, either physically or mentally and ergo retarded. Sorry.

To end, with regards to AJ being a popularity contest, I honestly do not care whether it is or it is not. I joined, and actively post, because I (unlike most of the community atm) actually really enjoy PvP in all its aspects and didn't want to be another stupid girl who comes along and gets carried to Glad by some desperate basement dwelling guys hoping for something in return, then sits pretending that she earned it and deserves the title along with some kind of respect. I actually want to earn anything I have, and hopefully help some other people out once I have achieved what I want to. Maybe it's a silly goal, but hey that's why I'm here. Sometimes, being in an entirely male dominated game and being the constant victim of misogynistic attacks and put downs on top of just learning the game and grinding out repetitive stuff constantly until it's ingrained in your brain, can be a little tiresome. I, like many others, drop into Off Topic to let of some stream, troll, laugh, discuss, whatever. If you dislike me, my being here or the content I'm posting, it would be beneficial for the both of us if you just PM me your concerns or keep them to yourself. I don't want every thread to be dominated by you making sarcastic, rude, mean or misogynistic comments at me, I can take a joke but as it was made plain earlier, you're not joking.

I have nothing else to say about this, enjoy your evening.

#4088695 The Current MMR/Personal Rating +0 thing explained.

Posted drockzo on 29 March 2014 - 05:24 AM

Isn't it sort of sad that the lead pvp designer had to investigate reports of people gaining 0 rating before finding out that an MMR hotfix went live today...

Did someone who has nothing to do with pvp development make this change or something? I mean this should be something that the lead pvp designer knows about before it goes live

I haven't read any comments that make him seem like a saint out of the bible, if you think that you musn't know very many kind people or hear very many kind things about people. He's just a nice person, there's no act to it. I've known Kisz for I think 2 years now, he's just truly a kind person, nothing more to it. He plays for fun and he plays with just about anyone, isn't elitist, and has played Ele since before Ele was good. Just unfortunate to see someone who plays their class well, played fairly, get dq'd.

They didn't cheat. That's the point of this thread. They honestly did nothing more than just play the game and then finish at r1, log in the next day, and have an e-mail from Blizzard saying they are DQ'd. That means ANYONE in this game who holds any title might just randomly get DQ'd. It's more the principle behind the whole thing, how win traders/ddosers/account-sharers all get to keep their titles, but a team who legitamately got R1 gets Reset. They weren't safe all season, and all top 3 r1 teams q'd on the last day of the season, leaving Kisz's team at R1. If they were cheating you better believe r2 and r3 team would of made it loud and clear to everyone.

you're irrelevant shut the fuck up

I consider it a great irony that we are to automatically presume this team's innocence because Kisz is a nice guy, they're Korean, or because Azael titles this thread, "The Truth" followed by an oddly placed semi-colon. I wish to have this noted on a similar topic concerning the presumption of guilt or innocence: Dannycarey is also a nice guy, he's an extremely talented and methodical player, and, he's going to Blizzcon because of it. And yet, I recall watching Azael indict him on stream, without proof, decrying Dannycarey as a, "no-name shitter that cheats". Thus, I challenge Azael and co. to have the decency to tweet, Skype, stream to clear the name of Dannycarey with the same type of publicity (as displayed here) with which they besmirched it.

I have to agree with bailamos here that semicolon was oddly placed for sure.

bailamos you are alright in my book

This game is bleeding subscribers though.....imo the best time to do this is when the new xpac comes out and the game goes back up in subscribers for a few months

+1 for the community
