#4403320 Rating Gain Change

Posted Velcaa on 21 March 2015 - 05:33 PM

I am not entirely sure if a lot of you are aware since I dont see that much noise about this but theyve changed how you gain rating and its absolutely awful

the max amount of points you can get from a win is 20 pts now after you are over a certain rating which is around 1900s? correct me if i'm wrong

what does this mean?
it means that if you are gaining rating on your alt and you have 2500 mmr but only are 2200 you only gain 20 points per win
if you are 2600 and you face a 2900 team you still are once again rewarded with only 20 points

so not only does it have an effect on climbing the ladder and rewarded for beating high mmr teams but it also is having an effect on the cutoffs (for US anyways i don't pay attention to EU cutoffs for obvious reason so someone on EU could confirm/deny if the cutoffs are being affected in a negative way also)

R1 cutoff is now 2738 for the US and glad is 2507, R1 cutoff before was around the mid 2740s and i can't remember what the cutoff was for glad before but I do know that it was higher than that
so the cutoffs are actually going down instead of going up as the season progresses which is disgusting.

it makes it absolutely ridiculous to gain rating after a certain point which makes people want to sit rating because of this so the ladder becomes even more dead than it was before

so please make some noise @ blizzard on the forums or hotlinka on twitter about this so they revert this just like they did with the 10% when we were quite vocal about how unhappy we were with that change

#4400294 Battle Fatigue-like effects: Bad or Good?

Posted Pretalethal on 14 March 2015 - 01:29 AM

Any form of "blanket" buff or debuff is very bad for the game other than the buffs in raid instances intended to nerf the content. To me the real problem is when things such as "The Crowd Chooses You!" and "Dampening" completely alter game play and comps is a core problem. Remember when teams would open on the healer then pillar for 20 minutes because of TCCY? In MoP they said they didn't want to have such a huge disparity between damage in PvE and PvP because of how resilience played out. Were already heading down that path unless 6.2 overhauls on a global scale which is very unlikely.

Personally, I never really understood what exactly was wrong with things like Lich King and Cataclysm itemization because seasons so far with PvP only gear haven't been better than ones with the PvE gear. The only instance would probably be early season 11 with DS trinkets and early daggers with season 8 to a lesser extent.

Without the bonus entertainment from my favourite streamers (Reckful, sodapoppin) I am constantly reminded of how bad this game actually is... WoW you're in trouble.

Ill be back when the game gives me a boner again.

#4395356 GCDTV's 3v3 Tournament #6 - Fri/Sat 6th/7th

The date conflicts with the Gamers-League RBG tournament being held on the 6th. Wouldn't this just create a divide in viewership numbers?

You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villan.

If Reckful didnt come back to WoW after he quit in Cata he would have left a legacy as the best arena player of all time. In recent years his shenangins and amtics on wow amd stream kind of tarnished the reputation of being a top player. However, his past accomplishments and videos will always be respected and impressive.

Hes an entertainer more than the pro gamer he was known as at this point, which isnt necessarily bad, but its just a shift in his image.

Although, can you blame the guy? Sure he sold out, but who wouldn't want all the donations and money he gets just for playing games and having fun?

Although imo he fucks around with way too many other woman and Jenna probably deserves better. Maybe shes in it for the fame/money though who knows.

#4278703 MM enchants

if you've time, could you elaborate more on why we prefere versality over crit? and how can i find out stuff like this? :)

Right now our stat priority for the most damage just ends up being versatility>crit>multistrike>haste>mastery.

Versatility is not only a better dps increase even on enchants but it also makes us tankier. While crit is still very nice to have especially because aimed shot crits give us 20 focus back, it is important to remember that crits are only 150% instead of 200% in a pvp setting.

#4278217 Dilly's Hunter PvP Guide (6.0.3)

Posted DreaedHunter on 28 November 2014 - 01:56 AM

Hey Dillypoo,

BC Hunter coming back to play for this Xpac, running with a Thugcleave 3v3 and seeing a lot of potential. I have been following your streams and I just had a few questions:

1) Iron Hawk over Spirit bond? Does this depend on what combo your running? and what would make you choose one over the other?

2) Do you use a forward disengage macro? I usually jump and turn around then disengage to jump forward, however you seem to disengage forward without moving your screen?

3) Glaives over Barrage always? I like to use barrage as a finisher into my killshot, however it is quite the waste of focus.

4) Tranq shot priority? When facing disc priest combos I find myself exhausting all my focus to tranq off bubble. When is this worth it and when is it not? With how tanky those bubbles are I would assume tranq would be my first priority.

5) When do you like to wyvren? and is binding shot ever worth it? I find myself wyvren -> ice trap for guarentee, however in your streams you seem to use both separately, any reason for this?

6) No pvp trinket? Do you think the added stats from the use trinket are more valuable? and does this depend on what combo you are running with?

Please take your time to answer these I know they are kind of all over the place haha. I appreciate any feedback you can give me, and I hope to see you in the arena soon!


#4271959 Ice Nova

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.

#4263373 Warlords 5v5

Posted Regent on 13 November 2014 - 09:11 PM

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.
