I fail to see your fucking point. What does this have to do with anything? I'm not going to play a female character ingame at any time. My point is valid, Moran is a classic example of someone who is trying to be an internet thug, posting a useless thread because someone is streaming. Tries to act like he doesn't give a shit, then tryhard whispers her ingame rofl.
Let her stream, dont watch it.
I kinda agree with this. All the posturing is the same attention whore stuff that people are mocking about her. Except AJ isn't exactly going to donate...
And after reading through it, this whole thread is unintentionally hilarious. The whisper log is pretty much a pair of cats fluffing their tails at each other, each one *convinced* that it'll give them the upper hand. The girl is overaggressive + horribly unaware, which is probably what it takes to promise boobies on stream. Meanwhile op is pretty transparent, too - he plays an ironic victim where everything is a deflection (leans on facetiousness to keep up the trollface, which isn't satisfying to laugh at because there's no real wittiness/repartee.) I'm sure it's also why he dug up a boy pic to share. It's a defensive 'troll' response, but not actual trolling itself.
Anyways this thread is just a lot of of awkwardly attempted shaming. If you cut through the bs, these two are both fighting to be noticed and loved.
Maybe aj isn't the best community for 'save the cats' talk but ferals look pretty bad going into mop.
Detox isn't going to change because the idea is probably somebody's baby. But if SR is dispellable too that won't be good. Aside from tranq shot, soothe/shiv have pretty much no opportunity cost compared to purge/spellsteal/dispel. Not to mention it takes longer than 8sec to get SR back up and then put up bleeds before SR is dispelled again (making those bleeds suck).
Even bleed removal alone will probably suck but I'm not in beta. It takes longer to apply rip/rake than it would to dispel them (8sec) and that doesn't look like it will change with pandas. It might be better for ferals to play with a mage or something that will make a monk dispel more often, but any dps monk won't have that problem.
Predator's swiftness make ferals unpopular with players who main other specs, but in the end instant clones are just annoying and reliable damage is what makes a spec desirable for pvp. Even with a scientific method, giving instant clones and root-shifting didn't make ferals "viable" in wrath. But with cata, increasing survivability and damage while lowering ramp-up definitely did. PVP cat survivability is being nerfed already, cool. But I'd rather see instant clones removed too than see tranq+detox effects go live because it would be equally annoying to play feral as to play against it.
tldr Bleed+SR dispel seems like too much lost damage for root shifting/ps to outweigh. Thoughts?
It was really fun to watch, felt like it turned into a genuine event with credibility despite little things like "oh the green button".
One thing I noticed though, and maybe I shouldn't be speaking for others, but the casters assumed everyone knew hoplessness=shouri or blockz=massives, etc. It's not too hard for an unfamiliar viewer to infer the names over time, but it's one of those things of balancing longtime aj community vs lay. I think it made things less accessible for those who don't spend time on the forums, which is the vast majority of viewers the event is after.
Otherwise it was really great to see people so dedicated to a game and a community to host (and compete in) something this well.
