#4271959 Ice Nova

Posted Fizion on 21 November 2014 - 07:02 PM

Is it just me or is frost super boring to play?  Maybe it's the ability pruning but I feel like I could play frost with an old school Nintendo 64 paddle.


#4271506 Ice Nova

Posted Nadagast on 21 November 2014 - 09:52 AM

I went off on twitter the other day about Ice Nova.  https://twitter.com/...926915233431552

As I understand it, Ice Nova:

1. Hardest hitting Frost Mage spell
2. Instant cast
3. AoE
4. Stuns  (or disorients?)
5. On Polymorph DR
6. Short cooldown
7. Two charges
8. In PvP, very overpowered, forcing Mages to lose iconic Frost Nova spell


Ice Nova is one of the best examples of PvP blindness in WoD.  As I said on twitter, my best guess is that the numbers must be this way is to make it PvE DPS-competitive with the other talents on this tier.

Does a single person disagree with me that Ice Nova is a bad ability for WoW?  Can anyone make an argument that it's a good ability? (if you don't have posting access here, tweet or PM me)

I'm legitimately interested, if you have an argument.  I have to admit that I'm a bit baffled as to why/how it's made it this far.

Edit: I realize I never specifically asked for Blizzard to nerf Ice Nova. Blizzard please nerf Ice Nova--it's an absurd ability.

It is kind of sad what it represents. 5v5 used to be the first competitive mode and now, instead of spending the effort to police it, they just remove it completely.

There will be no one queueing it ever now. There won't be a single team over 2200. Getting Arena Master will be impossible again, etc.

All because Blizzard is too lazy to ban cheaters. This represents them throwing in the towel.


#4250632 rbgs have the highest skill cap

Bailamos is now a Rank 1 Gladiator as well as an RBG God so I guess we will have to hear his verdict as he has mastered both brackets to their fullest potential

#4250320 rbgs have the highest skill cap

Posted Unseenz on 02 November 2014 - 08:17 AM

frequently players with peanut sized brains will make the argument that "3s has a higher skill cap than rbgs" whereas if they understood what a "skill cap" even refers to they would come to the realization that this is impossible

rbgs will always be both more competitive and stimulating for smarter players, those who are willing to apply knowledge of game mechanics to changes in the environment aka people who can think quickly in more than one dimension will come out on top.

let us for example imagine a situation in which two mice are placed in a box, and that they have to battle to the death. Clearly, the more physically capable, bloodthirsty mouse would come out on top and skill wouldn't be a factor [this is an analogy for playing a better comp, for all you arena people reading this].

games aside, blizzard has done a really good job with the production of the stream so far. not much downtime between matches and a pretty good UI compared to previous tournaments.

#4231087 Exumbra/Swull/Lxxi wintrading/ddosing to rank 1

Posted Regent on 14 October 2014 - 01:11 AM

Exumbra and Swull have been working tirelessly to get their girl "friend" lxxi titles in 5s. While it is no surprise that people are cheating in 5s (considering half the top 5s team are full of cheaters), these ones are stupid enough to blatantly cheat at all times of the day.

These are just a few (out of many) times they wintraded with themselves. They wintrade almost constantly.  When they aren't wintrading they are just sniping high rated teams that they can ddos (several known ddos'ers in these screenshots).

The good news is, they will all be getting banned come next week and have their illegitimate titles revoked.

This thread is just a warning of people to avoid in the future. Don't add them on skype, don't play with them, don't accept nude pictures in exchange for gladiator titles (these type of pictures can be found free on google).

This thread has already been pre-approved by the moderators, so don't bother reporting it (this particular group has a history of trying to hide their cheating).

Not to be rude but didn't you wintrade 5s for R1?

Its okay. "It just sports" "its just acting" people are making millions off Esports (league,dota,COD) and youtube and the majority of those people are behind the scenes. But the simple minded won't be able to see that. Dealing with sponsors, company's, ect is part of my job as well. But I've said enough. Poppy gets it, because he has a business mind. He's also the only other person here to prove that he's not driving his mom's Prius while posting on these forums.

Too many ignorant children here. I've said my piece, made my point. I'll collect another gladiator title just like the rest of ya'll this season, while living a life you wish you could.

how is it every fucking time i see you post it's just about bragging about how much money you make? even on skype when we were doing rbgs i had my headphones on for 3 minutes and you were already talking about making 6 figures. my god, man

it's not even your efforts doing it. if sodapoppin dies of a car accident tomorrow, you're going to be picking up cigarette butts at walmart

how did this even come up? i opened this thread to see the NA regionals tournament info

Despite all the racism, I actually think the real tragedy of this situation is Nmp's chatlog with Jah inwhich Nmp claims that being white wont take you as far as it used. In a fucked up way, Jah's right. Being black inherintly is a big disadvantage unfortunately still today due the social construction of race in society and the instituonalized discrimination that persists within it.

White people have an invisible knapsack of privilage that many are unaware of but is very real. If youve ever taken a Women's Studies or Sociology class you likely know what Im talking about.

Just the sad truth of society.
