@_Dakarth_ gemming primary stats instead of PvP power was expected. More interested in watching how gemming offense over resil plays out.

Well I'm glad that live is basically a PTR now rofl
Just curious, how many games did you play on the PTR?
Judging from everyone's optimism about 5.3 before it hit and then the disapproval today, no one really logged on to the PTR and gave any feedback. I imagine it is hard to balance the game on a test server when no one plays.

#3885653 WoW down to 8.3 million subscribers

Posted Affect on 09 May 2013 - 07:56 AM

I think it's to be expected. The people that "grew up" on WoW are getting older and are either going to more casual games or stopping completely. These later generations are tuned more towards console games or MOBAS. Not to mention there is no competitive scene in WoW. It's amazing how many people can get pulled towards a game that has 100s of thousands of dollars in prize pools.

Honestly, I believe streamers have caused some of this. Due to the amount of variety in streamers it's very easy to watch them and ultimately have them play for you. This isn't a diss to any of the streamers at all, it's actually quite impressive what some of those streamers have come up with and/or have going for them.

WoW is without a doubt a dying game. A very slow dying game, but one nonetheless. However, you can't knock them having such a successful life span. It is still ultimately the smoothest running MMO out there. I am quite sure they are happy with how well and for how long their game has stayed popular. I don't think it's even their fault. Yea the game has problems, as does any game. I believe it's just MMO's in general that is a dying breed.

The game itself is just old, yet still has almost complete control in the MMO market. So kudos to them. With that being said I don't believe they'll ever see an increase in subscribers. Maybe a few short spike resubs, but I don't ever foresee them going over 10m ever again.

#3880009 CC in arenas

Having 3 different DR CCs means nothing in itself. You are conveniently leaving out the fact that the duration of all but 1 of the CCs are 4 seconds or less.

Fear or Poly by itself is 14 seconds of CC, without talking about the CC on different DRs that those classes have (like death/mortal coil, deep freeze, counter spells/silences, and disorient if fire).
hunter cc has been more reliable then mage cc since cataclysm, outside of pom ring last patch, but hunters consistently act like their cc is dogshit and if a healer ever gets cced once by a hunter then its the healers fault for being dogshit

Also the fact that two of the ccs are four seconds or less is insignificant when they are instant cast and unavoidable, getting polymorph to last 14 seconds requires 4.8 seconds of casting, and thats when the mage is left alone with no mindnumbing poison and no hunter pet hitting him for infinity damage while the hunter is on the otherside of the map not bothering to coordinate his cc with his partners and then whining on forums about how easily avoidable hunter cc is and how broken Mage polymorph is by comparison

#3880665 Considering to merge Bg's to 1 ladder

Posted Dakkrothy on 26 April 2013 - 05:00 PM

just make 2s & 5s give more conquest pts than 3s (at high ratings), pretty much like RBG's... so you could say 2s, 5s & rbgs would be "preparation" brackets before you enter 3s with full gear and what not... lets be honest, the majority wouldnt touch rbgs if it wasnt for the high arena cap. So fuck it, just give the less competitive brackets higher conquest cap and give the real rewards to 3s

#3880663 It's me or MoP made the game unskill ?

Posted Persephones on 26 April 2013 - 04:56 PM

These kind of threads pop up literally every single season. Even back in TBC you had dumb comps that could nearly global you during cds (elem sham + bm hunter). The pace of the game has just increased a fair bit, and it requires you to react extremely fast to enemy offensive cds. Honestly so many people praise TBC, but I'd rather not have those 45 min - 2 hour long drawn out games because nobody is dying.

#3879797 Looking for some 3v3 Tourney (LAN) input

Posted Sykeasaurus on 24 April 2013 - 09:30 PM

Note:  This thread was created here (http://www.arenajunk...rney-lan-input/) by the user Holdups (http://www.arenajunk...229112-holdups/).  I think it's interesting enough to be in the Junkie section, though he cannot post in it.

Greetings, AJ.  While none of you have likely heard of me, I am an avid fan/follower of high level WoW PvP.  The following should roughly lay out a few ideas, as well as a series of questions I have to possibly put on a LAN 3v3 tournament that could be a prelim (or warm-up) to Blizzcon.

I've been in discussions with the owner of a chain of local lan centers I frequent here in central Indiana (called "eBash") about hosting a 3v3 arena tournament.  He hosts dozens of tournaments for various PC and Xbox games each year, and is always open to new proposals.  As his (by far and away) best WoW-playing regular customer, I opened discussions with him about having one of his lan centers in a suburb of Indianapolis putting on a 3v3 tournament in the months leading up to Blizzcon.

- a tournament held near the center of the US in Indianapolis could appeal to players in all parts of North America.  Airfare into Indy is relatively inexpensive.  For drivers, there are two major interstates that bisect our city, I-65 and I-70.  The cost of living in the midwest is extremely low, so hotels can be found for cheap.

- eBash hosts numerous tournaments a year.  They possess high-end gaming systems along with spacious facilities capable of housing a (hopefully) large tournament population.

- Because of their connections, the owner of eBash is fairly certain that he will be able to secure nunerous, very nice rewards from various manufacters in the computer world.  These prizes could be coupled with cash prizes secured from other sponsors, entry fees, and eBash.

- WoW Arena tournaments have been dying off over the years.  The occasional "big" online tournaments have been plagued by claims of  DDOSing, DCs, and 'lag' complaints.  As I'm sure many players would be, I would absolutely love to see a successful LAN 3v3 tournament occur where these occurances would be eliminated.

- Each year Indianapolis hosts GenCon.  This year the convention is held August 15-18 (a couple of months before Blizzcon).  My initial thought would be to couple this tournament with GenCon for the best possible attendance/exposure.

- I regularly Tweet with Holinka about low-level PvP concerns (I know, I know low level PvP lol).  I currently have a couple of Tweets into him about getting Blizzard involved in a prelim tournament.  We'll see where it goes.

1)  In the opinion of 'seasoned' tournament players, what type of prize pool would be neccesary to lure in a large and competitive crowd?  I believe the issue of computers, hardware, tangible prizes, etc... will be addressed without problems, so this question is more oriented to cash prizes.  Obviously more is always better, and obviously the number of registered teams would impact the prize pool, but what kind of cash payout (to say, the top 3 teams) would be sufficient to get a substantial number of quality attendees?

2)  I know there have been multiple tournaments held by multiple organizers over the years.  In the opinion of any participants of these tournaments, which tourneys / organizers have been the best, and why?

3)  How many teams would be neccessary to make this a 'big and successful' tournament?

4)  What rules would you like to see imposed in a major LAN tournament?

5)  Who would you like to see announce a major LAN tournament?

This is an idea that has been floating around in my head for a month or so, but I am just now putting out feelers from the WoW PvP community.  Please post your constructive input in regards to this idea.

P.S.  To the AJ forum mods:  Would be fantastic if you could move this post into an appropriate forum for maximum exposure (say the General Discussion forums).  Would be even more fantastic if I could be granted temporary posting priviledges for said forum.  They will be used only for this particular topic, and will not be abused.
