In Topic: New Mind Control bug in arena causing instaloss

i've played 15k+ arenas past few years and I've not seen this happen once, pretty sure its just another sign of disc priest syndrome
played a lot more pvp than you and can confirm this has happened throughout every expansion since TBC, although i do think it happened more often back then. not sure about vanilla because i didnt play at the time.
its not limited to MC, anything that makes your character move on its own can cause disconnects, such as knockbacks or leaps.
blizzard said back in cata/mop that its probably a real bug considering the number of players reporting the problem but that they so far werent able to reproduce it themselves and therefore dont know why it happens or what causes it. since it doesnt happen that often i imagine its not one of their highest priorities, especially since they already had trouble reproducing it in the past.

It just seems problematic that they make insane changes like no more deep freeze, or dispersion only 60%, 1.5min cd ''sham rage'' for elemental, moonkin being dogshit in general etcetc, while not toning melee mobility/sticking power down much or at all.
well, they are adding a bunch of interrupt immunities to casters (for better or worse) to compensate it seems.

I have only read a few posts from this thread, but my opinion on the pruning since early alpha:

Initially, it is a little alarming at how few abilities you have in legion. I for one enjoyed having a ton of abilities in previous expansions, I went from only using about 16 key binds in TBC to over 70 in Wrath when I started to play at glad levels. I am kind of enjoying the straightforward nature of legion PVP so far though. Granted I only have limited experience with it being a few BGs on each class, but nonetheless I find it fun to play for sure. Time and time again through other very successful games we have been shown that you do not need 50 abilities to have a game with a lot of depth. Shit, a big part of the game in the early days of arena was just picking which enchants and gems you were going to use to give you an advantage against certain things. Does anyone remember when some warlocks were experimenting with straight armor to try and get a leg up on Druid/war and the early cleaves?

Although we may only have about 15-20 abilities, they are all used extensively. Very few of them are extremely situational like some abilities in the past. I don't mind not having water breathing, enslave demon, among other fluff abilities because their usage was extremely limited or not useful at all in the PVP scope. You also need to remember that you have 2 talent tress AND artifact trees now. It's not quite the old talent system but it's pretty damn similar. They have basically changed fluff to functionality and people are just shell shocked by the sweeping change. Many of the changes are what people have been begging for since the beginning of mists, you have one or two major DPS cool downs to push damage and higher sustained damage just like when the game was peaking. A lot of tuning still needs to happen, but I have tried almost every spec and they all feel unique to themselves. Some of the reworks are great, I especially like the sun rogue rework. Every spec feels so different, and the new animations and sounds are a breath of fresh air. I think people need to try it before we complain.
its definitely true that a game doesnt need a ton of abilities as evidenced by MOBAs and other similar games.
however, the problem with pruning isnt that the game cant be fun but rather that you'll shift the focus of the fun aspect. i for one have played a lot of both MOBAs and WoW but eventually got tired of MOBAs because there is little room for individual player skill outside of teamplays, while the same wasnt true for WoW. in WoW there was a lot of room for outplaying enemies even in duels and a lot of it was due to the sheer amount of abilities we had (excluding rather useless ones such as water breathing and enslave demon, like you pointed out).
i hope in the end the game still ends being fun and the meta doesnt go stale within 2 months like we've been seeing in the past 2 expansions, but in the last expansions we've been having more and more pruning and staleness and shift in the core focus of the game followed suit, so im definitely not optimistic about it.

in the end pruning is definitely bad because blizzard is trying to make WoW something that it isn't. MOBAs may be extremely popular, but there's a reason me and most people here are still playing (or trying to) WoW instead of MOBAs.

In Topic: So who's playing this Overwatch crap

on a side note, they are at least banning people for good if they are caught cheating.
according to some poeple, if you get banned once you need to go through some troublesome steps to unflag your computer/OS otherwise you will get banned even if you decide to buy the game again and play without cheating.

quoting a guy who apparently bought the game 4 times and still got banned in all 4 just for cheating on the first one.

My story is almost the same as OP.

Bought the game during the beta, did a d3d11 wallhack which wasn't the best thing but meh.

Got banned 1 day after the official release, though i got detected for using RPM tools because the game was crashing for it at that time.

Bought the game again ... didn't hack on it at all, just wanted to enjoy the game a bit on it.
Two days later - banned again.

Bought the game ... again, but before doing that, i've deleted Overwatch and launcher completely.

Enjoyed it again without cheating only for a day.

Waited for like 2 days and i though i will change a few things first.

Used VolumeIdNumberChanger to change my HD Drive letters ID.
Changed my MAC address from windows options.
Changed some data of my processor ID in the registry.
Changed BiosDate in registry.
Bought a VPN.
Went to buy the game once again, played it for a bit and got banned in-game ... again without using any sort of cheats/hacks.

So i guess i need to say goodbye to this game, i regret poking around d3d11 during the beta ...

Conclusion:

They might have file(registry)marked my computer and i might need to reinstall my OS to remove their HWID ban.
Another thing would be they detect by "\\.\PhysicalDrive0"

Let me know if i am missing any other method.

considering the fact that the game costs $40, if they keep up with these aggressive bans we should expect the environment to be rather cheater-free.
