First off i want to say Reckful, Talbadar, and Kollektiv are some of the best players in the game let alone their own class. They inevitably deserve rank one on any bg. However, when Reckful hits rock bottom @ 2280 he had a God Comp, Volkanyx, Talbadar, and Sodahz play on his team during prime time all day in order to establish a rank one placement. Roughly around 3 A.M with Kollektim and Soda offline Talbadar and Reckful are seen in arena. Via stream http://www.twitch.tv...v/cronxgaming��
Now let me ask you a question, they have spent all day leveling the team with God Comp for Reckful so why at 4:00 am would they abandon Kollectiv and Soda, arguably two of the best healers in the game for some random duelist shaman?
A shaman that is inevitably a carry who has no titles. Not only is this a carry shaman but they put this shaman on the team to avoid facing the KFC and TSG who were predominant on the ladder because no one knew he existed. This would allow them to dodge any possible counters when Reckful began his journey to catch up in PR. As far as my team goes (KFC) there is no point even trying when one of the worlds best god comps can continuously que for 14 hours straight. Theoretically sniping us with Fire God comp while playing RPS when we are offline. Of course we will never know because we never stooped to that level. Once we saw what was happening and what was needed to achieve R1 we simply stopped. No this isn't a thread about us not getting r1 but, instead this is about them waiting until 4:am to play with a non glad shaman for Reckful's R1 team. If you honestly don't believe this is a pilot ahem* Cdew / Kollektiv then you must have alternative motives. Its time to truly see if Blizzard treats well known players as well as the average one. As in if you violate the rules a.k.a T.O.S you should pay the penalty. What do you think?
did you actually screen a shot a twos game i dcd in you fucking moron. You are pathetic and a waste of space. I have a feeling you're the type of person that could actually kill themselves and have no one care about you.
ps. rip rests and iconz ); legit teams getting reset sadden me
Blanket silences were not helping in any way. I am sorry, but I can understand where you are coming from, but please do understand that you have been used to having it, instead of recieving it. I have played a healer for as long as I can remember, back when fake casting rewarded you with a few seconds of well deserved casting time to pick up your partners. In todays game, there is no more fake casting. It makes no sense. You can not tell the difference between a good or average Mage anymore. You fake their counterspell, but you are still locked out for ½ of the duration that you would have taken if you just plain tried to cast it the first time. Do you really want the game to reward such sloppy play? You can't lock him on his cast, so you just throw it anyway and get what you want with minimal effort.
The same goes for Blood Fear and all the other instant CC's that litterally spells out "Make a mistake, nobody minds". Take a game I had the other day. The enemy team had their DK rush in vs. us. Huge mistake from their part, he was out of sight from his healer and 2nd DPS and went to 20%, had to trinket and pop all his CDs. I rush on top of the enemy healer to cyclone him. I get instantly blood feared, which I trinket, for then to be put into a Howl of Terror. We ended up losing the game shortly after, since the Shaman popped SLT and then NS Hexed me from the fear, which meant my partner died.
It is just extremly sloppy play that blanket silences and instant fears promotes. You do not need to communicate with your partners, you do not need to set anything up, all you have to do is target your enemy and press a button. Casters were simply too good against classes that had to cast. Especially Paladins. Now Paladins are in a pretty good state (too much CC in my own opinion, I prefer the defensive role we used to have). Blanket silences, just like Warriors had, should go. And frankly, I am sure you thought Gag Order was retarded too, so why do you think it is any different for casters?
I honestly do not believe healing is a problem currently compared to all the instant CC and burst. After they tone down this, I do believe their plan is to work on instant healing too.
I really feel like death knights main lack of success and representation is their lack of real peels / ccs or some kind of real compensation for it.
There's a few death knights finding success with Hunter / Death Knight / Healer and Warrior / Death Knight / Healer, but I think it's not exactly hard to see that the real strength behind those compositions isn't the Death Knight.
Sure they have deathgrip, strangulate on a 2minute cooldown, and possibly a stun on a 1 minute cooldown but if you compare that to other classes who are successful at the moment those abilities are a joke (Ring of Frost, Psyfiend). While I think there are far too many CCs in this game to add more, it also means that every class that doesn't have consistent CCs (Shockwave, Cyclone) either need a compensation or something else to make them competitive at top ladders. Ret paladins for example have good hybrid heals. Enhance shamans have a double purge, tremor, and other totems.
Death knights have... more raw damage I suppose. Usually more damage would be great but in a death knight's case their extra damage compared to a warrior for example are just meter padding cleave damage that is easily healable. While more damage is still always good, I don't think it's enough to compensate for the peels / ccs they lack and also their somewhat weaker defenses compared to the better classes.
Compared to other classes that just get globaled through all CD's, you can generally tank damage with your cds. With spam deathstrike, ice-bound, a really accessible blood presence, pet sac, and lichborne stacking with pvp power we do well.
I can't tell you how many times KFC's try to go on me and almost always fail to get a kill.
