#4370168 Is Holinka the worst thing that happenned to WoW PvP ?

Posted Thasta on Yesterday, 05:23 PM

I think Holinka is doing a great job. This is just the first season of WoD, and I think s16 is infinitely better than s5, s9 and s12. You can see Blizzard is doing a better job of making changes earlier on to tweak PvP. Hotfixes are being rolled out multiple times per week. What you have to remember is that WoW is a PvE game, and most of the damage/healing numbers will be based on PvE performance, which Holinka doesn't have control of. As previous posters have pointed out, PvP balancing really can't reach its full potential until they separate the functionality of abilities in PvP and PvE.

I played against Kaska in 3s earlier this season, and I've never seen another player 2v3 as well as he did. I've never had as hard a time connecting to the internet as I did that game. Well done, Kaska. It was a fun match, and I came out of that loss feeling like a learned a lot about tin foiling my router. Thank you.

#4336728 Affliction Warlock Stat Prio? Haste VS Mastery VS Versa

Posted Chanimal on 07 January 2015 - 08:36 AM

After having played with both I like haste a lot more. The weapon enchant is really helpful, makes juking a lot easier.

It's so much smoother and I don't really notice the damage loss.

IMO Optimal stat prio is: Haste > Mastery > Versatility > Crit > Multistrike


#4334328 Holinka came through. Combat fixed!

Posted Stealthsultn on 06 January 2015 - 03:08 AM

Wow...guys the rogue buffs are pve tweaks so blaming Holinka seems a little silly.

#4300863 Buff Frost Dks Heals

Posted Rabidhobo on 15 December 2014 - 09:43 PM

I'll address your complaint about you saying "X is overpowered" and people saying "So is Y". Your post is really a gripe about a larger problem but is made too specific due to your personal experiences which makes it appear you are biased. This post is a particularly useful example of this perceived bias.

The issue here is that some DPS classes have been given WAY too much self healing. It is really frustrating to a lot of people to be having their damage completely counteracted by the sustain of a class that is supposed to be a damage dealer. It's even more frustrating when the healing isn't self healing but rather healing in general.

However your approach to this topic was that frost DKs have too much self healing. You cited this by posting a screenshot of an arena scoreboard in what can only be described as a contentless salt post. yet this is in glaring contrast to the fact your teamate is a FERAL DRUID. One of the biggest offenders of this whole DPS have too much healing gripe. I can only imagine that means youve seen dozens if not hundreds of game scoreboards where you won in part due to ferals sick self healing and never thought it was a problem. yet suddenly when a frost dk on the other team is commiting this sin it's worth a passive aggressive #icefrog2stupid5me post. Your post makes it look like you're totally ok with the self healing mechanic, but want it nerfed on classes you don't happen to comp with.

Class Distribution

:druid: - Hotted
:hunter: - Yoske, Tosan
:mage: - Venruki
:paladin: - Vanguard, Athlete
:priest: - Talbadar, Crazé
:rogue: - Hildegard
:shaman: - Cdew, Novoz
:warlock: - Azael, Nadagast
:warrior: - Swifty, Bajheera, Hoodrych
:deathknight: - Mes
N/A - ReDeYe

Note: It is likely that Tosan is being represented as a Monk instead of Hunter. This leaves Druid, Hunter, Mage, Rogue, Death Knight and Monk with only 1 NPC.


Extra Info: Potential Candidates:

Put the most likely candidates in bold and least likely in italics, mainly taking into consideration their spec and relations with Blizzard. This is purely my opinion and a guesstimate of the people Blizzard will most likely consider.

[US] - Snutz, Rzn, Reckful, Sodapoppin, Jahmilli, Dannycarey, Chanimal, Sodah, Abn, Pikaboo ...

[EU] - Minpojke, Zunniyaki, Nolifer, Boetar, Baten, Trillebartom, Doomsen, Akaishuichi, Nauree, Praii, Flubbah, Hydra, Mystic, Braindeadly, Waffle, Blukstack ...


Classes with only 1 representative so far and are thus most likely going to get more:

:druid: : Sodah, Sodapoppin, Minpojke, Baten, Doomsen
:hunter: : Braindeadly
:mage: : Jahmilli, Abn, Nolifer
:rogue: : Rzn, Reckful, Pikaboo, Akaishuichi, Praii
:deathknight: : --
:monk:: Dannycarey, Nauree


#4111202 The Most Overpowered Ability in Game

Posted Vanguards on 30 April 2014 - 10:13 AM

My personal opinion on why Warlock Fear is so problematic atm:

1.) The extremely low cast time with high haste. An extremely strong spammable CC should not be that easy to get off imo, this particularly holds true at the end of an expansion when Warlocks have tons of haste, with Dark Soul up it's almost impossible to interrupt it without pre-emptively kicking.

2.) Affliction dots are a joke to get off, they have nothing to do but fear while still doing their maximum damage. Back in Wrath a Warlock actually had to make smart decisions about when to Fear / do damage / dots. Now there is no choice. You instant dot everything with soul shards, even with 0 shards all you have to do is cast a near instant UA and soul swap it over.

3.) This is a problem for specifically right now, Warlocks has more survivability buttons than ever, thus allowing Warlocks to push in on your healer and fear your entire team anytime he wants, since his risk to be punished for pushing in is so low.

Edit, here's what I suggest:

1.) Blizzard needs to watch how off-stat scales for CCs, particularly at the end of an expansion. Haste shouldn't magically turn some CCs to be nearly instant for PvP.

2.) Make Aff Warlocks have a harder time doing their damage. This can be done in numerous ways.

3.) Gateway needs to be changed... While this ability is awesome for the team using it I find it a horrible ability as a whole for PvP. It is horribly imbalanced on some Maps (Tol Viron) and not as good on others (Dalaran.) This creates more of the RNG battle that most people hate. It is better to find a way for Warlock teams to survive without resorting to Gateway. Having a match decided by the map isn't fun.
