#4599610 Artifact Weapons, Offspecs, and PvP

Posted Ickz on 18 August 2016 - 07:21 PM

This is completely fine tbh. You shouldn't be able to have tons of alts and, arguably full gear for each spec without putting effort in. WoW was at it's best when you actually had to put effort into your character and it was difficult to maintain more than one or two characters at a time. They're trying to make the game feel like a MMO again. It is not a tournament simulator, nor should it be. If all you want to do is log on and do nothing but grind arena games on multiple classes all day, every day, then go play on a private arena server or wait for the official tournament realm.

i disagree with both things you said, i have seen what he has said to a few of my friends (froffsy+livin) and he isnt a "nice guy" nor is he a good player
Who are you to judge me if i'm a nice person or not? I don't even know you.. I barely know of you :S And why are you saying i'm not a good player? I have never talked about you, let alone said anything negative. I can safely assume at this point that your real life is nothing short of completely and utterly useless, as you decide to drag ME of all people into an argument on fucking arenajunkies. I'm a bad player ingame? I don't even play the same bracket as you idiot. Rbg is where I spend my time and there I play in the highest rated european team second to none. Oh and please don't come with the rbg sucks etc, you're playing WoD/Legion 3v3.

vilde is a great player and a nice guy atleast he always has been to me! what i dont understand is how some people find it necessary to go on those forums and flame people or put others down for whatever reason, those who act like that are insecure poor minds and players to me!

what got me into pvp originally was vurtnes videos back in vanilla

when the first one just came out i remember rewatching it like 3 times that day bein all like "this is so cool omg"

its not exactly arena related i guess but i started mimicking what he does (the camera control, the pace of playing, etc) so that was an inspiration in the literal sense of the word

arena wise i remember analysing hydras TBC movies a lot. i played priest at the time and mimicked his style a lot as well (positioning/movement, interrupt faking, swd's, etc)

no more inspirations after that, just some people that i acknowledged are better than me (so i watched their play and tried to figure out why) and some people i respected for their attitudes or mindsets

#4590547 The Reason For Pruning

Posted Nyeshyo on 11 July 2016 - 10:03 AM

Ability pruning removes alot of counterplay and smart individual performance, making the game "bland and scripted"

In MoP you could do 100000 things to outperform an opponent individually, minor things like curse of exhaustion into fear, or save cds until opponent wasted disarm to get full value and uptime during them.

This also meant that you could punish greedy/worse players and the gap between someone who was actually good and bad was significantly higher.

Just doing damage was a whole chapter of its own, a warrior had to actively choose between slam/heroic strike/overpower, and as any dotclass you had to take dotsnappshotting into consideration to get max value

Now? Press MS off cd and tabrend people, as a warlock you just press buttons all the time, and since your dots scale dynamically you might aswell go brain afk and press ur cds whenever you feel like it

Also, your arguments are a bit counterproductive since ability pruning actually strengthen specific comps versus other comps, creating more of a "rock paper scissor" environment, if you had more options to outplay opponents, you'd be able to play less good comps but still do really well because of better players outplaying worse opponents.

I'd rather have a good game than a boring eSport

Your retarded Swedish friend

i dont entirely understand the point of playing a bc server. i imagine you guys are just gonna arena and each calss
had like 5 buttons they push frequently back then. if you want to play with 5 buttons why not just play legion.
im not even sure one could argue that the game is more skillful in bc.
vanilla i can understand because arena wasnt a thing but is there another reason to play a bc server? the pve sure in the fuck wasnt that great

this post isnt meant to start a flame war or anything im just curious on your guys reasoning

the core mechanics of classes make sense and actually work, whereas they don't on live (and haven't since cata, but mainly post cata)

every class doesn't have 5 instant cast short defensive cds to use to get out of trouble, every class doesn't have self healing, every class doesn't have a gap closer, every class doesn't have 3 different cc breaks alongside their 5 different instant ccs. a single dps can kill a healer by himself, or the healer is capable of killing the dps. there were a lot of imbalances back then, but they didn't matter as much because the way the game played out was fun and made sense

people talk a lot about ability pruning these days which is an issue, but to me it's not the main issue that exists. it's the entire philosophy behind how classes are meant to interact with each other and the gameplay in general. there was an actual structure behind class roles previously, and it's literally missing now

i don't think tbc arena was particularly skillful, it just actually made sense and the way classes interacted with each other was fun. arena now isn't skillful and it sure as fuck doesn't make sense or is fun

so i guess that's why i want to play bc again, because i like playing wow the way it was designed to be played by its original creators instead of by the people who work on the game now who have a shitty philosophy towards how it's supposed to work

i've grown up playing this game and i've massively enjoyed it through multiple iterations of it so i'm not afraid of change or progression, but they've completely lost sight of what made the game popular in the first place and continue to move away from that direction

The point is that blizzard actually believes that making the game easier will bring new players to the game which should instantly be able to play with their "veteran" friends and feel like they actually accomplish something.

I guess most blizzard game-designers haven't played much "real" games so far.

The reason why I get hooked up on a game ist that I actually feel like I'm working towars something and keep improving.
Challengemodes, Raiding, Rating. (what ever motivates you)

The casuals usually cry on the forums 24/7 about how hard the game is/was.
Those are the informations blizzard collects most of the time.

"boss is too hard" "my class is so bad" "can't get glad because I'm a scrub and this is bullshit"

The better players usually don't even visit the official forums anymore.
We the far above average up to elite level players don't even bother posting anything relevant on the forums we just keep it to ourselves and maybe have an occasional breakdown an circlerrage on the game.

Blizzard did the mistake to actually design the game for the casuals to make them happy again. (for the shortterm)
What Blizzard forgot is why those casuals keep asking for it.

They crave for attention and want to be as succesful as "method" or be the next arena-god.
Those casuals crave for this because the want the attention and feel special about themsellf.

What blizzard keeps forgetting is that there's nothing to aim for if you get everything handed on a silver platter and if the casuals don't have anything to aim for then they will get bored sooner or later.

Blizzard should have realised by now that if people are  willing to cry on the official forums = they cry because they really want that title / acm / boss kill. They don't want it due to the achievement itself they want it due to the reputation/prestige reaching this goal brings with it.

I remember a time in TBC in which I was in the best pve-guild on my server and I was 1 out of the 3 hunters with a full-T6 and a legendary bow. People (other hunters) looked up to me and asked me for advices because they knew what having T6 actually ment back then.

Maybe this game was nerdy and ate all your time back then but this kinda created hierachy on every single server.

Do you remeber when you were a little pleb and spectated those gladiators doing duels in front of Orgrmmar and occasionally tried to beat them in a duel and got your ass kicked because they outplayed the shit out of you? and how good it felt once they you became one of them?

#4562442 Legion's Dalaran sewers world pvp.

Posted Naraga on 28 January 2016 - 06:31 PM

Sounds like a Gurubashi arena to me. Hardly worthy of being called world pvp.

True world pvp cannot be designed as a "special pvp zone" as Blizzard has kept trying every expansion again. True world pvp only exists when PvE players have to travel out in the world to gather mats, do quests, get attuned etc. in zones where there are no guards to protect them.

says a lot about the game from a pvp standpoint no?

Yes, but a lot of the cool stuff back in the day is now standard play like sapping off CC, deathing/saccing CC, grounding deeps, purging NS.. even 2200 hunters knock people into traps they miss and 2200 spriests use lifegrip to avoid them. Back in WotLK it was sort of rare for a lower rated HPal to sac a CC. Now, it's common practice at very low latings.

I used to do cool stuff back in MoP as a Ret like blinding a priest when he went for a guise fear, freedoming an imp CS pet nova -> sheep, insta fearing psyfiends,1 shotting them to get a clutch crit heal, pre-kicking MDs etc. These days, there isn't really jack shit i'd be impressed by seeing in a video because almost everything that used to be innovative is either standard play or has been removed.

A lot of that is due to pruning, sure. A lot of it is also that people have been playing the game for much longer now and the general skill-base of the game is higher, while at the same time there's less to do to separate players from each-other.

if you're that bored of the season you should do the opposite of whats in this video, give yourself a challenge, help someone achieve their goals instead of getting whatever sick pleasure you get out of watching somebody be sad. this is the definition of a toxic and negative post.
