Warriors are ruining the game for everyone who does not play with a warrior.

My theory is that warrior players don't even realise how stupid the class is, because all they play against is other warriors. So that makes it balanced.

Double reflect and interrupt needs to go, that's pretty much it for balancing warriors from my perspective. Imo just make the mass reflect talent replace regular reflect with not increasing the cd from 25 sec to 1 min, and same for disrupting shout with pummel. I'm not sure however if that would make disrupting shout a desirable alternative... maybe just replace it with something else entirely. Mass reflect would still be good enough even if it replaced the other reflect.

To be fair, bladestorm and storm bolt should swap places in the talent tree also. Would avoid 2x stuns and make it one control tier and one damage tier. It makes more sense in general if you look at all the tiers. They all have some sort of "theme".

And no I don't only play warrior, and from what i've gathered from talking with people I know, my opinion seems kinda universally agreed upon.

I don't understand how for many, many seasons these Europeans have insanely high mmr with flawless win-loss ratios, but when they're put to the test against Americans, they flop!!
2012 yaspresnt finals - 3 eu 1 us, eu winner

Hardest BG in US - rmp did 2800 when that setup was bad. It seems like ye, we flop. Idk how retarded you had to be to lose vs rmp while playing BM hunters comps. But on misery this rmp maybe  would do 2,5 :)

Are you for real? Any team on EU will know we've queued legit and we're queuing on primetime. Literally any team can support that. Only team we lost to was a horde FMP when we played WMD.

As for Boetarz and Swapxy, they are playing LSD with Blukstack and they've queued every single game legit.

Get your facts straight before you start accusing people.

Edit: We have around ~40 games of our WMD on VoD and the rest have been played off stream. We faced a lot of streamers recently. Flubbah is one of 'em, so just check his VoDs if you want. I'm not actually gna defend myself further because you're actually stupid as shit for making a thread like this before even talking to EU players.

**I decided to make this a seperate thread, instead of posting it on the individual post itself so that it wouldn't detract from the point of that thread**

While I do agree that wintrading is reprehensible, I find it ironic that the thread was made by a person who has a very conspicuous win/loss on the EU ladders.

Posted Image

In fact, the top players on EU all have really dodgy win/losses. I don't think they are wintrading or exploiting, tho Trillebartom was one of the players who originally exploited the conquest bug. Instead I think there is a serious problem with top EU players not queing into each other. Dodging is, to some degree, a form of queue manipulation and is overall bad for competition (just as wintrading is bad for competition).

Just contrast EU ladders to US ladders and you can clearly see there is some sort of anti-competitive outlook among the top players:


My challenge to EU is to start having actual competition instead of making a thread directed at an entire country in the name of fair play.

#3970483 The Last Stand Against the Russian Wintraders

Posted Batenx on 22 October 2013 - 01:07 PM

Okay, I figure it's time for one of these threads.

As most of you lads are aware of, the EU RBG ladder and 5v5 ladder are basically owned by the russian troops. Just to clarify: when I say 'owned' I'm not talking about their superiority, I'm talking about their disgusting wintrading behavior. They wintrade with 5k MMR and there's no way the rest of EU can compete with that. For that reason, these brackets have been abandoned and are now being ruled under russian command.

As of last night, the russians invaded our homeland; the 3v3 bracket. We can't allow this. The russians must be stopped. Look for the ones in the top that are decked out in PvE gear or green gear. Or perhaps the ones that got 2.4k achievement and 2.7k achievement within a few hours...


I hereby call for soldiers who are willing to fight this battle until the russians are dead (read: banned). I'll make a report form and all you have to do is find these 'russian insects' and put their name in the report.

"Hello, I'd like to report players for wintrading. Players keep wintrading in both 5v5 and RBG and you even reset RBG ladders because you're aware of this. Now they started in 3v3 aswell.

The players are:

Name: Оргэг
Realm: Grom
Armory: http://eu.battle.net...om/Оргэг/simple

Name: Вангвадр
Realm: Razuvious

They wintraded last night to 2.7k rating in 3v3.

Please look into their recent activity and their match history and take action. They destroy the fun in this game and I will unsub if you don't take appropriate action."

Remember to always include the name and realm of the player you're reporting. The Armory links are fucked when you copy them here at AJ, so just click on the links first and copy paste into your ticket!

If you really want to shine you can throw in some hashtags if you want them to reply faster. That gets 'em going. I usually do that. #wintradinginsects #scum #bug #stuck #cheater #unsub #enjoy4millsubs #apocalypse #coldwar

That should be good enough. Just name all the russians and link their profiles and we'll report them all!

Please don't let this escalate. Keep it real.

being able to disarm it at 1.5 min cd was kinda DUMB cuz u trade 1 min cd ( disarm) to counter a 1.5 min cd but now its 1 min and unable to be counter at all sometimes on my war a rogue or mage or any class ability lands a stun and iam still able to storm out of em its all based on how u time it one way they can nerf Bstorm is to allow them not use it when disarmed to counter war pressure most class  get counter spelled or melee disarmed and they r forced to either trinket or lose there pressure and warrior gets disarmed and he can still use blade storm and do full pressure and person who use the disarm didn't get anything out of the 1 min CD disarm or orb disarm

Looks like any form of punctuation is harder than playing a warrior at the moment.

yeah aff damage sucks

people don't seem to grasp what damage is, currently warlocks sit at #3 MAYBE #4 in overall damage in arena, when the class is designed to be #1. i can out heal an entire set of warlock dots+haunt by standing in efflo and not doing anything else. i can sit in one place, with demon soul/haunt up, tunneling damage into someone and not get them sub 70% hp as long as they have some form of passive healing.

aff damage is inflated during long games via spread pressure, but it isn't real damage.

you can't kill anyone with this damage, passive self healing out heals it most of the time, your dots are ticking for 4-5k damage without haunt.

warlocks are viable every season because they always work well with the broken classes, be it mages, rogues, warriors it just depends on the season,.

you see 0 warlocks in the 2v2 bracket for a reason, and it isn't because the class is good on it's own.

are warlocks bad? no, are they overpowered/broken? well they have a 6% rep and they're the easiest to play they've ever been, so you decide.

get an interrupt tracking addon like interruptbar and juke casts... shadowfury and blood horror are amazing anti-melee abilities

you can get a gate down if you create some distance and port behind a pillar and have your partners cc them while you cast if needed. if you spam trying to get gateways at the start you will not get pressure out and lose, if they interrupt gate cast, get damage going, create distance, port, cast gate you will do much better with one down

if you dont fake cast and land fears on their healer you can't really win vs those comps
thats quite funny , ''fake 2 interrupts and cast'', lemme tell u what happends when i try to do that vs a tsg as rmp.
Tried that once and never did it again:

#3921265 Diablous - Burn Me Alive

Posted Capstone on 01 August 2013 - 03:59 PM

I watched the video. The editing is good.

The music immediately reverts that redeeming factor, and then extends the favor of ruining the experience for the viewer some more. The opening highlight reel of popping ascendance and using a ranged ability that instantly kills someone with 50% hp is an idea that classes where one button does not govern the outcome of their game have used to thrive on, but from the perspective of an enhancement shaman who is permanently in Ascendance for the duration of the montage, the reel is truly cringeworthy. I truly feel like I am watching a war crime be committed everytime someone uses a defensive cooldown and immediately dies after to the unhealable damage of a hunter and enhancement shaman in rapid succession through editing stormblast on top of stormblast.

In most of the games, there are critical mistakes chaining, DRing, or landing CC on the opposing team's healer, and usually no communication to cross CC. In one game in particular, the team uses cooldowns on a hunter and immediately baits a life swap, then the hunter and shaman each go on a different target, neither of which the priest can heal through, and everything on the opposing team dies (to be fair, the hunter DID call that he was attacking the death knight - Diablous just keeps attacking the hunter, which is the target nearest him [which seems to be the only factor in target calling decision making throughout the video]). Maybe worse yet, is that in the blur of players flopping to an enhance/hunter that uses calling the name of a class as the full extent of their damage coordination, are Michael Jackson songs, remixed into overworked oblivion, which would have him turning over in his grave if he were not grateful to not be alive in a world where the state of the game is where it is.

There are no series as far as I can tell, no losses to see the perspective of the struggles of improving as a Beast Cleave really, and no signs that the team has improved past the point of basic communication and synergy (admittedly, they communicate well between each other). The rest of the music is obnoxious to the point where you might want to mute it if you weren't objectively evaluating it - but none of the music is as bad as the first song, "Scapegoat," a thrash metal song performed by The Agony Scene, which repeats the same message over a dozen times in just under two minutes - "Burn Me Alive".

The video is titled "Burn Me Alive", for what reason I don't know - maybe Burn Me Alive is a plea from Diablous to the naive WoW community, and the montage of ascendance stormblasts playing to the repeated title is indeed a collection of war crimes - a confession. Maybe Diablous can't help but share his masochistic desires with the ArenaJunkies community - he has, after all, been playing an enhancement shaman since 2004. It could just very well be, though, that the title was as poorly planned as the idea to open with a montage of that which annoys the arena community more than anything, the poor musical score, or even his choice of class since 2004; perhaps the title was chosen simply because Diablous is a fan of that utterly unbearable song, and thought the phrase "Burn Me Alive" repeated constantly in its under-three-minute duration just sounded cool, and decided to title his video to repeat it one more time, as if to stain our minds with the horror of enhancement shamans ascendancing down their competition with one more repetition of the phrase. If it's of any consolation, I will probably repeat it to the person nearest me if I ever listen to the song again.

I give this video two :hunter: :hunter:  / :hunter: :hunter: :hunter: :hunter: :hunter: , its editing and effort is commendable, but I have no earthly idea why it is on the front page of AJ.
