#3862319 Frost bomb OR nether tempest as FMP?

Posted by Scudy22 on 16 March 2013 - 12:41 AM

nah moose, i dont need to cast, since shaman has an instant cast heal every minute and an eartshield that takes ages to purge and so much cover. i find it fine how it is.

#3798347 How to get my healer to stop QQing - Improving Positioning

Posted by Scudy22 on 02 November 2012 - 06:48 AM

With cataclysm the game got very instantcast-heavy.
Now what i noticed while playing with people with less experience, or even experienced people that didnt play before cataclysm is that they tend to always move while casting instant spells. While this is not bad at all it can have a very bad impact on your positioning. While moving around people tend to lose the thought in their movement, they just move around in circles spamming their spells. This makes it hard for healers toproperly pillar-hug, because the LoS ankle always changes, and its unpredictable because (as i said before) there is no thought behind it.
How can you fix that?
-Try to stand still from time to time even when you could actually move, and only move when you really feel the urge to do so.
-Play a bit more wotlk-style, a cast heavy style, where you spam more sheeps or frostbolts and less icelance (Even though this is not the most effective playstyle at most situations it can improve your mindset and comprehension in positioning, and when you feel that you improved you can get more into the world of instantcraft)

#3642405 Streaming

Posted by Scudy22 on 15 February 2012 - 06:13 PM

twitch.tv is good.
this upload should be enough, i can stream with 0.6, its a bit laggy but works. so 1.0 should be far enough.

#3637431 alot of questions

Posted by Scudy22 on 09 February 2012 - 09:19 AM

1. vs warlock only dispell when there is no ua up. you can dispel ua when there is no pressure on your team or risky dispel your mates just when you really ned to get that fear, nova etc.

2. no.

3. optimize your fake-cast abilities and tell your mates not to spamm-peel but to cc both enemy dps at the same time so you can heal up and run some yards.

4. try to be as friendly as possible and make ppl wanting to play with you cuz your such a nice guy. works better than beeing the best player and you and your mates will ahve more fun

5. more skill + better gear = more rating.
try to find a raid group to get a trinket or shit.
getting more skill is easier than you would think, but takes more work than you think. here is some advise:
-fraps yourself and analyse some games after a day of arenas. dont only watch losses but also look at things you have done right so you keep up your motivation.
-watch streams of medium skilled players and compare their mistakes to yours and ask some questions. they will more likely answer your questions as there are no 500+ viewers who spamm the chat about some dude beeing better than another one.
-ask the better players on your realms to play with you for some fun, if you are friendly and they have no team they will probably say yes and help you out a bit.
-if you really wanna get better as fast as possible you can try taking private lessons from some multiglads. its pretty expensive but will help a lot.
-never ever say "i lose cuz my mates suck so hard" always try to search a fault in your own playstyle. You need to get good enough to compensate your mates faults. not by beeing the best player ever but by communication in game. when you notice your rogue doesnt disarm often enough remind him to do so when the enemy team is bursting.
--> YOU want to get better rating, so YOU have to do the work for your mates, research for their classes too and try to tell them what to do.

#3635983 DK Frost / DK Unholy / Holy Paly vs Rogue / Hunter / Priest

Posted by Scudy22 on 07 February 2012 - 12:31 PM

first go hard on healer, than split frost dk on hunter and unholy on healer to keep the pressure alive. Every minute time your ghul trans with frost dk's cooldowns and try to burst down the hunter or the pally, depending on dr's and their cooldowns.
edit: try to grip the hunter right after his scattershot, lots of players miss their trap after this on that rating.
edit2: vs priest it should be pretty easy to just kill the priest as they cant really peel vs 2 ams+ibf and freedom. bop the blind when it is on your dk's. same is for shamans. vs pally you need to switch/split.

#3626550 [Rogue] Basic abilities

Posted by Scudy22 on 27 January 2012 - 03:38 PM

backstab in burst comps like rmp hemo in pressure comps like rls. keep up recup and slice and dice and spend everything else on kidney/eviscerate/deadly throw. Use eviscerate if you wanna kill or pressure something hard. but keeping up slice and dice will give you more overall damage. Never ever use rupture, even if it crits a fucking lot its just as much overall damage as a noncrit eviscerate.

#3617768 Damage as a measurement of skill?

Posted by Scudy22 on 18 January 2012 - 07:44 PM

Damage is a mesurement of skill in a way. Setting up cc isnt that hard. Doing damage isnt that hard. Keeping position isnt that hard. But to do all 3 of these at the same time is pretty hard. So when you do super cc but no damage you suck and same the other way. When you cc as much as you have to and doing perfect damage while you can you have skill.
