#4284285 S16 Day one - The good/bad/ugly - What blizzard can do and why they should.

nobody mentioned this? Posted ImagePosted Image

This garbage has got to be some of the dumbest shit I have EVER seen in this game rofl
Are you fucking joking? the retarded set bonuses don't even have a cd, you literally have 100% uptime on starfall, throw out starsurges constantly and is permenently immune to silence/interrupt.
and if you choose to hit a moonkin they become enraged and do even more dmg

what a disgusting abomination

Lots of positive changes, some things left unweeded out, understandable they were not weeded out yet, however minor changes should happen immediately the cycle of 0 changes for entire seasons need to change. Minor in-season changes, major new season is acceptable.

1. WoW will never be perfect, but they can try.

Let's get one thing out of the way, WoW is a gigantic game with a gigantic range of activity's people enjoy, and all these groups are paying customers to a for-profit company. This means they have an interest in improving the user experience for all these aspects, but keep in mind no matter their income they simply just will likely never have a large enough staff to keep all content perfect or even close. There is simply not that many qualified individuals for hire to keep demand for an improved user experience fast enough for what we ideally want.

2. The good in WoD / S16.

Blizzard has shown interest in taking more feedback from the PvP community regarding game design changes that directly impact PvP only. They have implemented a lot of good changes over-all from player feedback too, so not all talk. Some things people seem to almost universally enjoy:

-Rewards from skirmishes and battle grounds(and skirmishes to start with added back)+arena/rbg points.

I enjoy hoping for that 626 ilvl item from the gold box or an extra piece of lower gear to help me along my way gearing, and if not gold is better than nothing. I'll just add here RBG/arenas giving the same points is a big bonus too.

-The overall reduction of instant game breaking CC's/CC drs.

It's not perfect - some bad balance changes that go against this are still here, such as disc silence, but as a whole I find my game to be much less frustrating win or lose to die in a blanket CS, pom sheep, ns clone, shadow fury howl, etc. I think most people do too. I also enjoy things like clone/fear DRing, as it encourages cross CC over CCing one target forever making  him have no fun. Cloning one guy fearing another is a lot more attractive.

-Healing : damage ratios

Outside of more extreme cases, I typically feel much more happy about healing output compared to overall damage. When I face a less competent team often I am able to pressure for extended periods of time with out having to pop all my cds and kill them in 4-10 seconds or watch them hover at 90-100% even while playing poorly.

3. The bad I think personally in s16.

I can understand why some of these balance changes were overlooked giving how much they had to change and the staff issues I mentioned above. However, now that they are fully noticed on live servers at the very least minor changes need to go out quicklyish. Many people re-subbed for WoD with the hopes(and not blind hope, some things have changed) blizzard has improved in many ways, this is their chance to not let the same process repeat it's self in PvP of balance taking far far too long, minor ones now, majors later, atleast.

-Passive ability's which are too strong need to go.

The main culprit here is wings from ret paladins. Passively reducing cc by 50% during their dps cooldown at no cost to them is too strong and no fun for anyone, really. I'm not sure but I think spirit bond is fairly strong at no cost right now too, though not op.

-Hunter, ret, feral, dk.

-Some minor changes need to be made right away to these classes. We can not expect them to redesign 4 classes 1 day into live but some minor adjustments should really happen, fast.

-Hunter: I think the main issue here is kill shot damage, and I think trap needs to have more counter play(small cast time, maybe). Hunters are a ranged class, and break the general idea of ranged are disadvantaged by casting often but get benefit of range while melees ability's have no cast but need close quarters to use. There should be a trade off larger than it is for long CC ability's as a ranged class.

-Ret: Remove CC reduction during wings. Make sac CD increased by 15(longer later, if needed)if you successfully sac some one out of a current CC they are in.

Feral: Mostly a nerf to heals, see how that goes.

DK: Strong but my main gripe is only how long and how short of cds their CC immunity's are. A little more counter play / time they can be possibly CC'd should be a bit higher, i think, some kind of CD increase on one or more of their ams/ibf/desc grounds abilitys.


Side note/rant on Mages: Their playstyle is mostly hated right now. The best example I can give is if I am playing RLS mirror lets say - the enemy rsham pushes in too greedily for purges and my lock jukes a counter spell and kick. The sham being in a bad spot I kidney him/spam back stab and my lock dots, haunts, and channels drain soul cause he juked the interrupts, we force large pressure, with out having to pop dances/on uses/demoulsouls etc. Cd's, or peels, or gigantic investment in recovering time will be needed if we capitlize on their misttake and our good play.

Now RMD - vs RLD. We just bursted their druid with ice novas/orb. He used some cds and lived, and he goes to a poor position and is just doing what ever with out thought. We juke CS and kick once again, and decide to punish their lack of positioning/wasting their interrupts. I kidney the druid, spam back stabs, having just used orb/ice nova to try and burst, he is forced to spam frost bolts. Instead of giant pressure for the outplay and bad play on their end, he comes out at 70% hp and all is fine.

Solution: Frost mage needs a non cooldown casted ability that is threatening if left alone in the open with teamate help. Buffing frost bolt, nerfing ice nova dmg sounds good to me.

Enough said about this shit event, we ended up losing everything because we didn't get these headset to mute background sounds so we couldn't hear each other at all on skype. Not even mentioning people tapping on my shoulder when I was playing because we were too close to the alley.
We definitely had the worst conditions we could have had and our moral was down to zero while playing.
We almost left after losing the first serie because it was senseless.

Fortunately I had the chance to meet cheerful and nice people otherwise it would have been terrible.

#3747771 Should the eligibility requirement for gladiator be updated next season?

Posted hertzuk on 21 August 2012 - 02:42 PM

Merging BG's would be the best thing they could do for wow pvp.

They nearly got this far when they introduced cross BG queues, but then they fucked it up with the queue time and stuff.

#3747490 Should the eligibility requirement for gladiator be updated next season?

Posted e130478 on 21 August 2012 - 02:33 AM

The problem with setting a standard 0.5% requirement for gladiator is that it doesn't bode well when arena participation itself fluctuates. No doubt, we have seen the reality of this problem in season 11. As arena activity has dwindled, so too has the amount of gladiator spots made available come season end.

In order to remedy this issue, should the percentage fluctuate based upon the activity of each battlegroup? With no sign of a WoW resurgence in sight, should the gladiator qualifier tentatively raise to 1%?

#3747469 WoW 2012 European World Championship Results

Posted khuna on 21 August 2012 - 01:39 AM

Hi everyone, first i wanna thanks everyone that supported me and my team i really appreciate it and thats prolly one of the few reason that makes me keep playing this game.
Secondly i wanna tell to Azael and Conradical that they are insane commentators and such nice guys too.
Then im gonna go into the depth part.
Blizzard made ESL organize the event this year, and it was probably the worst thing they couldve done, it had a direct impact on the tournament results and specially for me and my team.
Im just gonna explain from the begining, and before trashing the whole WoW ESL Staff because they are all (almost) a bunch of incompetents wankers i wanted to say that i don't think Shawn is even tho he is the main admin, if you read this Shawn i know you tried your best and i know everytime i asked you something ( and some things were really annoying ) you tried to find a way for me and i rly appreciate it.
So im not even gonna talk about the communications and the plane books tickets because i just had to pay a few hundred more and thats nothing compared to the rest.
Won't talk too about the fact that the ESL car let us in germany from the airport when our rooms weren't ready before 4hours because i can maybe understand that they couldnt book a later flight and that the rooms can't get free before 2pm.
But im gonna talk about the ESL saying that they will fix everything for us, not even paying us food, not even telling us that they won't, not even giving us gamescom pass, sendings us cabs that they didn't even pay and that we had to pay when they arrived etc etc
But all of that didnt rly had any influence on the tournaments results expect that some people were prolly tired and hungry cause of it.
The worst part is that every person i met from the ESL at the tournament except Shawn were clueless retards, specially the main admin of the WoW Tournament that wasn't even watching the games to see if anyone cheats or something like that, that same guy i had to yell for 3 minutes straight at to get a headset that isolate the sound ( thats when it get interresting ).
We started the tournament by facing teams we knew we would beat, then we came up against another's zunn's cara's dk ret priest, one of the best team in the tournament and one of the 2 team we werent 90%+ sure to beat.
The thing is we played it on groupstage for some reason while they were on the stage, and the main thing is that the ESL didnt give headset that isolate the sound to everyone, only on stage, and the sound was even louder in groupstage, basicly i couldn't hear my warlock at all in those game so was funny realising that he wanted to go priest after the game because he had nice cross cc on ret, im not saying we wouldve won 100% and we lost cause of ESL but i know they didnt even let us a chance to win by not paying few $ more to get headsets for everyone because it was obvious that gamescom will be loud?
So i just practiced alot of months for no reason, because of some imcompetants wankers that should get fired as we speak.
The worst part is that after we lost 3 0 against another ( and thats this 3 0 that will make us loose our place in China at the end ) i went to see this retard esl admin and i yelled at him for 3 minutes straight, he wasnt even answering to me probably shitting in his pants because he is such a clueless retard, then he finally got me a headset few minutes after but it was too late, i already lost because we ended up facing double shaman (yea because blizzard allows class stacking and triple dps, making clickers able to beat players that are years away from them) and we obviously lost because double shock grounding tremor is just too much for a warlock to get the pressure off( plus the fact that we can't kill their resto shaman in this comp cba explaining now why ).
If you care a tiny bit about doing tournaments, you should at least try to do it properly, that means do it yourself (Blizzard) like every year or just don't do it, but for players its a pain in the ass to practice for so long and get stomped for silly reason at the end of the day.
Start by listening to players or at least read other popular's tournament rules.
And please dont let the ESL organise it ever again.
Oh yeah, our hotel was fucking horrible too when the sc2 player were in a good one, we didnt even have the clim in a lot of rooms with an insanely hot weather.
and thats just a part of it

Anyway was fun meeting a lot of people there , i even ended up liking people i hated online...
I still have some good memories even if we got fucked in the butt...

ps:sry for my english mistakes i had to write it fast im not at home atm
