Ok, I feel like a new post is needed here as EVERYONE I talk to have no idea when/if the yas tourny is happening even though Another made a new post in the old thread.
Copy paste from Another's post below.
"Any setup with one healer is allowed.
Teams can have only 3 players.
No class stacking.
Pve gear is not allowed.
The losing team of each match will be able to choose a map. Nagrand Arena will always be played first. Same map can't be played twice in series.
45 second disconnect rule: If a player disconnects after 45 second mark the game will not be replayed."
"Because of this deadline to sign up is extended until 6th of March 23:00 CET. Every team that has applied so far needs to apply again by sending me a pm here. Tournament is still this weekend (8th and 9th 18:00 - 23:30 CET). "
You do realize my point is DK's lose fuckall dmg from the resil change coz their SR 1 shots you + necros dont scale that much with resilence to make their damage any lower. Warrior pressure is still absurd, I got hit for a 88k mortal strike into 170k soul reaper the other day, and that was me being trained for 12 min with their entire team dotted with affliction and boomkin aids while their rsham is full mana.
I cannot cast fear, because he has LoS, grounding, wind shear. I also have a warrior with pummel, disrupting shout and a mass reflect training me, not to forget the backpaddling DK sitting in blood pres the entire game still making insane pressure who also has 2 grips, a silence and a mind freeze!
If I occasionly get the odd howl of terror on the shaman he ofc has tremor totem to counter it. Lets not forget that if the boomkin roots the melee they will get dispelled instantly, and if he poor chicken tries to cast cyclone its a interupt coming for that!
So when autistic Billy and downie Dan finally killed the warlock after 20 minutes playing TSG they can collect their 192 pts and sit on Rival for the rest of the season while my team patiently waits for full gear so we can be viable. But you Virent play godcomp where none of you can die and do instant CC with 4 different DR's so yeah
There'll be plenty of viable warlock combs when the gear is out, why not just play what you find fun with friends until you have the gear? If they change stuff now, they'll just have to change it again in a few weeks when the gear is out.
I agree that some melee combs are better atm, and the fact that you can't kill anything before dampening as many warlock combs is pretty boring, but just play whatever you find fun - You can easily get high rating as a lock right now.
If you're not getting fears on the shaman and if he's not ooming, you can't really blame the state of the game for losing neither.
I'm sure everyone has seen how much trolling and general douchebaggery have infected AJ. I'd like it to stop.
Trolling and assholery puts AJ on a downward spiral. People troll/asshole-it-up, which leads to less people using this as a forum for serious/reasonable discussion, which leads to more trolling, etc. AJ always was and continues to be the most popular place for new players to get into the PvP scene. Any community relies on new members to sustain itself--by making this place a wasteland we are doing nothing but ensuring our own demise.
Before you post a reply or topic, ask yourself: am I being an asshole? If you are, change your post to take a more educational tone. If you're feeling heated about something, take some time to cool off before replying. Don't immediately assume someone is trolling you, some people are just not very knowledgeable. Worst case, if you reply in a calm educational manner, you've posted something informative for the hundreds or thousands of lurkers who will view your reply. These are generally newer PvPers, and anything you do to help sustain them as arena players helps all of us.
On any set of forums, it's easy to forget that almost all of the people reading it are lurkers, who will never make any posts. Lurkers cannot be trolls, they can't be assholes, they are just here to learn or read interesting things. Post interesting, informative content. Post drama if you want, but don't be an asshole. Fuck the trolls, post for the lurkers.
I have no hope for this game anymore. The Jews at blizzard are trying as hard as they can to kill this game, $60 for lvl 90 is a joke along with another 8+ MONTHS (length of season) until WoD? Rofl who is making these decisions?
Don't expect much development from WoW unless it involves the in-game store and more ways for Blizz to make money off of a game we already pay $15/month for...
I remember back when mounts were rare drops, rewards for random shit, etc... Now you just wipe your ass $30 and POOF you have your new mount, pretty epic!
Edit: I wonder what all the PVE people will do... They have already been farming the same content for months at this point, and there will be NOTHING new for over 8months, wtf?
wod arena and raid changes look incredible and I am all for them devoting the vast majority of their dev team to make it great, its pretty obvious there is no hope for mop anyway. the proposed changes arent just good on their own, they are a clear indication that blizzard cares about small scale competitive pvp again which hasnt been the case for a few years.
I cant believe anyone on this website would complain about blizzard focusing entirely on endgame pvp and pve content, and offering players a way to skip grinding levels to get there immediately.
do you really give a fuck if anyone buys a level 90? It just means when your friends buy the xpacs to come back they will be able to arena with you right away, and if you are too busy irl to grind a character up that you want to arena on you can just drop $60 and have it. its an old game and as a result a lot of us who play it are in our 20's now, with less free time to grind levels and more disposable income we can put towards ensuring the free time we have is enjoyable.
i honestly dont get the backlash with the buying level 90s, its not like being max level in this game is an achievement to be proud of anyway.
