In Topic: Beating Aff locks 1v1 as Sub?

23 July 2014 - 02:42 PM

you are in a very uphill battle if they are specced Shadowfury/Blood Horror together. The only reliable way to win most of the time is to open with CDs popped to force their defensive CDs and use cloak to vanish and wait out your offensive CD timers to open again since their def cds are on a longer timer.

Still hard playing like that since they still have a disarm/stun/fear/horror effect for when you connect

If they have a gateway up just run the opposite direction they gate so you can get a free restealth since 99% of the time they will be out of range to keep you in combat

Remember if you are dueling them in open world the moment they drop combat they get healed byPosted Image

so if they give you shit about sitting in stealth tell them they are faggoteers for playing a lock and dueling people.

It's not a problem they are playing at the same rating as me, the problem is they are not as good as me and they use an addon to get them there. If it's such an justifiable and reasonable addon and it's not unreasonable at all. Uninstall it and try and get where you are on a new/Restart your team. If you fail install the addon again and see yourself get there again. I use Gladius, I also use Cooldown trackers. But i was at the same rating and have played at several occasions without them.

Red big text

Pros:

Let's you know what is going on in the game

Cons:

Covers a massive chunk of your screen

GladiatorLosa

Pros

Let's you know what is going on in the game
Talks over your clueless dribbling players and actually lets you know what is going on in the game
Does not require the use of eyes

Cons

Does not make you a better player.

See thats where youre wrong.  You lost because of a strategy flaw. therefore you actually aren't a better player than them.   The addon didn't press the buttons for them, they did.  You didnt lose because gladiatorlosa told them your hunter scattered  and threw a trap.  You lost because you didnt set up CC correctly and looked silly afterwards.

How about this,  instead of telling them to take off gladiatorlosa and see how well they do.  I challenge you  to use the addon and see if you can get a better rating than you have now.

judging by your abrasive personality in a thread that was just asking opinions, im going to assume that you probably rage at your partners quite often and dont take criticism very well when they say you did something wrong.  Leading me to believe that you are struggling to win, not because of an addon, but because you are a volatile player and no one likes playing with you long enough to get a winning synergy.

Okay, just going to say this first. This will be extremely long, and if you are incapable of reading I have also taken my time to say it on vocaroo for those who are incapable of reading.

If you think you can justify Gladitorlosa in any kind of way, you must be out of your mind. Kpul, if you like competing against people on your own level or rating, and you want a challenge then why do you want to compete against people with gladiatorlosa unless you are a user of the addon yourself. This addon can be perfectly compared to physical sports where you are required to practise alot before you are able to compete with other people at the top, where you can't just train for a year and be on the same level, it requires alot of dedication.

Take as an example Usain Bolt may he be legit or not, But in this example we will say that he is completely legit. All the equipment he uses additionally to his competition like Shoes, Shirts etc, that has been fitted for him and gives him more comfort can be easily compared to addons such as Gladius/Healbot or any other VISUAL addon that still requires you to communicate with your teammates at a decant level and notice things by yourself to find out where you are positioned.  You see, even if Usain bolt is using the best shoes in the world it does not take away the fact that he has been training for years.  But if he was to compete in Olympics or any other competition he could meet a nobody who has been training for a couple of years shooting all kinds of steroids or any kind of physical altering drugs that would allow him to achieve the same level as usain bolt in half or even a 1/3'd of the time.  Now is this fair? NO it is not and same goes with Gladiatorlosa, you have people who are new to the game that suddenly is able to compete at the higher levels of PvP.

Now you argue that any new player should be allowed to play Arena, and use addons like gladiatorlosa so they can compete, but this is not true. this is why we have a ranking system. Now nobody really cares about Challenger/Rival and some Duelist. But I would in this post consider Olympics as Gladiator/Rank one or generally the higher levels of PvP. I am not saying people with gladiatorlosa should be taken away completely, but if you are using at the levels of Gladiator/Rank one, then You are cheating as people who are legit actually would of been better then you, if you can't play arena without gladiatorlosa because you wont be 1800/2000/2200/2400/2600 or even 2800 (Example of 2800 ele shaman) then you might aswell not play the game at all.

This game is not hard to grasp, there are very few buttons you have to press now and everything is given out to you for free on Guides etc, the only thing that remains in the game as far as how good of an player/high rating you are, is your Induvidial skill, but one of the most important ones is that you know what is going on in the game and are able to communicate with your teammates so you won't do a mistake and die. But it's generally how well you synergize with your team and how capable you are of noticing what is going on in the game and not just locked in some tunnel vision. This is what differs a 2200 player and a normal 2800 player. Now if you are not very good at paying attention to the game a robotic voice is very good that just tells you everything really loud of what is going on, so you do not have to communicate with your team, and the practise needed to reach the same level you are currently playing at will be reduced by alot as you are skipping alot of the practise needed to get there.

Okay so your arguement is that the addon is bad because it provides an auditory notification that somebody used a certain move.   Im assuming since you put "VISUAL" in all caps in relation to certain addons that you probably use and are defending.  Would gladiatorlossa be op if  it did this in game with scrolling red text instead?

My point is.  a good shaman is gonna tremor a fear, or ground/shear a poly regardless of what addon hes using.  It seems like now you're just complaining to complain.

I like the idea of everyone knowing whats going on whether its an addon that talks to them or puts text on their screen.  Playing against people who react correctly to what the other team is doing is playing the actual game.   You are acting like its unfair that an addon said your partner was throwing a trap and they used a defensive cooldown because of it.     Would you prefer them not popping any cooldowns and just dieing to make it a fair game for you?

It just all seems like all of you that are complaining about this gladiatorlosSA are having trouble being successful in arena and using the addon as a scape goat to why you arent r1 on all of your characters.

You're right


OT:  I was gonna say that it will be easier to backstab targets that arent lagging terribly.  But then i could also say that it will be easier to face a rogue who is trying to get your back.  Either way I'll be happy regardless im sure.

So let me get this straight..  no one likes this addon because it makes players who normally arent good at the game better.

What is wrong with a bunch of better players playing this game?

I enjoy competition so the fact that you want to dumb down a specific population confuses me.

I play ally mostly so healers are scarce, finding a decent one is near impossible. So if i come across a GladiatorlosSA using shaman who "would be 1900 without it" but is 2500cr.  Im not going to care.

At the other end of it.  If i queue into a team that has a shaman or w/e using GladiatorlosSA and they use it to ground CC or w/e they are doing.  Im not going to care because regardless of the matter they are playing the game the way its supposed to be played.  GladiatorlosSA isn't reducing the CD on shear or tremor its just giving newer players an idea of when to use it correctly.  And to whoever says its going to make people worse gamers in the long run, I'm going to disagree.  If a player gets used to grounding CC or deathing polys because the addon lets them know its coming, then when the addon isn't there anymore they will at least know what they need to do and whether or not they successfully do it is still them being a better gamer than what they were.

tl;dr : I dont mind the addon because I like playing against good players regardless of if their awareness/skill is from an addon.
