Contrary to popular belief the overwhelming majority of successful streamers are not girls. In fact, all the top grossing streamers are men. Simply because WoW girls' tend to dominate most popular video views does not entail they are getting higher followers, donations, and subscribers than the men.
Anyways, a key component of successful streaming is talking to yourself. A lot. Narrate what you're doing. It's about personality. There won't always be fun activities or high rated play, so you have to generate your own entertainment value. I've seen the top streamers engaging in the most menial and bland activity and still thousands of people are watching. Why? Because they don't give a shit about your battleground, or quest to become Dora the explorer in WoW. They want to hang out with you, your twitch chat constituency, and feel involved.
Why the fuck is this all still in the game, it's as stupid as s12 blood fear, s5 TnT stun/Glyph of Death and Decay, and prep smoke bomb
In a 150 second interval, a paladin can reliably break 3 fears. 2x bubble + trinket. Game goes longer, you get to break a physical cc, a blind, warrior fear, a stun, scatter, para whatever via bop, you get to break a full silence via aura mastery.
It takes 4 fears to land a full fear on a shaman, 3 on a monk, they can choose to break a stun too.
Druid is the worst but gets compensated by playing spell cleave, leading to a second trinket via mage symbi or ele shaman tremor. They also get a long polymorph immunity through tree form. Also, any team with a dps shaman breaks your aoe fears. Meanwhile half of the dps classes have a fear break / extra trinket.
Ironically , only healer that eats a full fear is priest considering that it's a statistical improbability to play against a comp without a guy that can purge fear ward. And priest can not break any cc that is already landed without using a trinket as opposed to all other healers. Since this expansion is the instant cc fest, it is more important to be able to break a cc that is already landed but priests have to death blinds, scatters, pom polies, fear ward a warrior fear or a lock howl(which requires fail from their part too). So your getting out of cc depends on doing sick stuff, where as the other healer uses cc break button.
Obviously invis + chastise + fear is overpowered but let's not act like non priest healers don't have the tools to deal with it once it lands. How does priest break other healing classes's unavoidable cc btw? Like a FoJ, bash, ns hex, ns clone, para + monk stun? Coincidentally other healers get to break priest cc.
If I am gonna go oom in first 2 minutes because I have to spam heal while the other healer is rocking %90 mana bar, I would like to have easy time landing my fears (which will be broken by the enemy team's multiple fear/cc breakers numerous times before I land a full one anyway)
Again, I am not saying invis chastise sprint fear is fine and I am not saying holy priests are terrible or anything but please keep in mind that there is also the other side of the story(when it comes to overall cc breaking and cc landing)
It's not that i like Archpriest but there is nothing I despise more than these malicious fucks who try to ruin for people just for the sake of causing something bad to them. In my eyes even a pickpocket who steals 45e from someone is better as a human because the thief's motivation is just getting money not causing something maleficent.
I can't recall the order of events, but every time hydra had to play there was drama one way or another. And this last forfeit is just a slap in the face of the organisers/everyone who is watching. Truly hope that any future tournaments have learned from this and either just skip him when inviting teams, or make him pay some sort of deposit that he gets back when everything happens in a normal way (no forfeits, no drama, etc). The way he acted is just plain annoying and disrespectful for everyone watching.
