#4534788 WoW movie trailer was just shown

Posted ROKMODE on 06 November 2015 - 07:31 PM

I think it will do pretty poorly. Average viewers are just going to see this as a generic fantasy movie, especially with how focused it is on live action orcs. imo they should have gone with the arthas plot for their first movie

edit: I meant warcraft trailer not WoW sorry

depends on where and what you played

on some bgs the top teams played each other on the last day/week, on other bgs they just dodged and farmed africa

also a ton of people xferred to bongwater at the last second and just blasted a battlegroup of dummy teams. the titles never really meant anything

Sounds more like end of wotlk then all of tbc and maybe up to s6-s7.

Heres the wall of text for @Balance.

In US, TBC titles from Bloodlust (BG9), Rampage (BG3?), Ruin (BG5) were legit, prob also Vengeance and one other.  So like 3-4 bgs were pretty unshakeable and the game wasn't developed enough for any team to just walk in and takeover (on those bgs).

Part of the reason is based on the TBC queueing system (was slower and more selective than the wotlk revamp), and also cause someone strong in 3v3 was probably already locked into a hard earned, strong 2v2 rating.  I don't really think people xferred for r1 titles from 2s or 3s back then, maybe 5s though.  The only bracket you could actually sort-of wintrade in was 5s.  Everything else had way too many queues (even in offhours) for the whole 3-2-1 queue between trader and tradee.

As for the leapfrog/passing thing --> yes it was possible but it was well guarded against.  The queues would thin out near the top, so much so that the top people would use AJ to post a "we are queing now".  As more people did this, you'd get this kind of critical mass that would snowball.  This made unofficial scheduling of a prime time window.  Pretty much every good sport would queue then.  And, if you checked the logs you could easily identify wintrading.  Yes, we had advanced armory with complete dmg/hp/details logs back then.  The public could see what was up, every game.  Shit wasn't streamed either so less real-time ghosting and all that.

To get the proper r1 slot, you did have to defend against being passed the night before season's end.  So you're r1 at 2608 and number two and number three teams are only feasible passers within X hours, you might set some lvl 1's up to monitor.  It would be a late/long night.   If they start queueing you had basically no choice but to queue into them.  You had one class/spec/comp none of this insta form a counter comp with alts.  So no real counter comping or dodging/sniping.  In TBC wayyy more often then not, the better team simply won.  By WOTLK this did evolve a little bit and sometimes people would agree on just tying for r1 (usually on shitter bg).

The oldschool ladder integrity tended to be self-reinforcing.  For this and other reasons, I would think irregardless of current game state, that an oldschool title is more significant.  Shortlist of reasons (some opinions but a lot of raw facts):

-- steady activity all season with last minute pushes.  less social media surrounding the game meant your presence in-game determined your connectedness to ladder activity.
-- mmr system wasn't fucked like it is today --> slower more incremental ratings changes buffered (somewhat) against those 1 night snipes or tanks.
-- mmr system was scaled inwards with less runaway effects like today.  Your 3100 rating was 2600 back then, and you couldn't reach this "escape velocity" where you just learn some cd chain that farms the same feeders and shit over and over at 2700 to reach 3000.
-- no teams were there to really throw away rating, feed or deliberately tank because competition and charter --> hard grind.
-- r1 on some class or spec meant it was your main.  end of story.  IMO people had to play a lot harder and be a lot better at their single class/spec/comp.  No toggling over to alts and forming groups instantly at xyz mmr --> less meta.
-- Less boosts, mods, scripts, bots, cheats, etc.
-- Less min/maxing and less meta-gaming --> no idea who was queuing until the gates opened.  Some people would try to snipe/dodge based on a lvl 1 scout toon or get their friends.  There was also a time-delay on arena status updates.  And no bnet.  So you basically didn't get real-time info on who/what was where --> curved dodging/sniping.  
-- Something like 30x more people actively caring about the game --> more competition.
-- Something like 3-4 esport tournaments across 2-3 active circuits each year while the game was still fresh --> more competition.

The only bug i know about wings is when you leave an arena wings active, the talent bound to it (Sanctified Wrath  : -50% cd on holy shock and +X% crit) is still active and last until you die or until you use wings again.
But it doesn't affect arena at all.

nice find +rep move to elite

the most comical thing about rbgs was the time datacus and bailamos started tweeting holinka about cheating in rbgs.

yea i remember in s13 datacus / splatted and co. would literally just hit the other team off every game... the guy literally made a name for himself on WoW in rbgs because he ddos'd.

then he sits there and complains that rbgs are dead. yea no shit ppl like u are the reason why (@Datacus) lmao.
