#4614157 Destruction warlock artifact priority question

Posted by Smir on 01 November 2016 - 09:32 AM

Maybe instead of just fotm rerolling every week and cry for every nerf just stick to one spec?!



thats not how high ranked arena worked, and will never work

you can obviously stick to one specc an do very well with it as you will be most likely better than other people with it



but if blizzard invites you to a gunfight and sends you an uzi to compete with, you rather not wanna turn up with just a knife in your hand to the party

if its a monster knife and you are a ninja, you probably still kill everyone, but you could have done all that probably aswell by just firing your uzi, and that could have saved you 20 years of training in a monastery

#3815787 For the ones whining about locks being shit now

Posted by Smir on 05 December 2012 - 06:29 AM

I dont understand what ur trying to say? even if its a bug this is something you can do all the time against teams with a pet and theres nothing you can do to avoid it. Mayaswell just run rshammy hpala destro lock and hoj one targt and unload everything

with this post you say that locks are very viable only because of this bug and that is bullshit
by generally (i think) that with this thread you only wanted attention (or probably point out why you loose to teams you probably think they are worse than you)

oh and btw now as you know it not that i would defend something like that, but if you see that some1 doing dmg to pets of your teammates and then suddenly at 20% he stops doing dmg to it and starts banishing it, YOU COULD SMELL THAT THERE IS SOMETHING SNIFFY GOING ON and dismiss the pet (after the first time loosing to this there is no excuse to loose against this BUG ever again)

#3809398 Blizzard #1 Don't count your chickens before they're hatched.

Posted by Smir on 22 November 2012 - 12:27 PM

all this caring about achievements, this is the least i care about
some didnt get bans, but i think its still not done, there will probably still come some bans

and the most important stuff that they got reset is made (ofc some are buggy and some are banned even though they did nothing, sometimtes happens, a system is hardly ever broken)

but what i absolutely dislike is (and sorry if i am way to nice to blizzard in the last few weeks, but the people kinda make me to) is the crying
there were major bugs, and every1 was crying shitloads of it (every1 with half a brain should recognize that this was an issue you could not solve within 1 day, this takes major actions that have to be thought threw and then coordinated)
then blizzard fixxed the stuff REALLY GOOD and the second they did that, there were already people crying about some minor bugs and all

the insane whining is what kinda annoys me, actually in some points the wow community (pvp wise) sometimes is VERY awefull in that regards, if we were a bit more constructiv and patient it would result in better solutions, cause right now as a programmer/game designer i wouldnt be able to know that is serious whining and what is just sensles crying

just my 2 cents

#3805482 Why wow is so hard to balance?!

Posted by Smir on 15 November 2012 - 01:10 PM

i think people should stop to shittalk GC
the only thing i wish was a bit more insight into the whole "buff/nerf/balance" change, so it would be more transparent

but guys, if you go to a restaurant and want special "offers" do you go to the cook and insult him first?

#3805465 Why wow is so hard to balance?!

Posted by Smir on 15 November 2012 - 12:43 PM

to be honest....
first of when you write your thread as question and want to ask something dont call people fucktards (even if you probably dont like GC)

as said befor the reason is PVE
and 95+% of the game atm is random stuff + PVE and to be fair changes made there are very accurate and fast
and its also very balanced, the game has tons to do for the average player so he keeps playing and is entertained

they once had a few spells they didnt allow in arena (e.g.: curse of doom) but it seems like they dont like the system (would deffo be the easiest way to balance around in pve and pvp)
but again arena a small part with low public interests so thats probably why its not that fast like in other sections (blizzard is a company if you have the chance of blancing for 95% or for 5% you first look at the 95%)

also like the last weeks wehre EVERYONE was crying why it takes so long to fix the mmr bug, working in this branche its just not possible
they most likely have one replication job for major changes, that they cant do just on the fly, each week.
It was just not possible, the only solution would have been to completely disable the arena until the researched a "good fix" and that would have even been worse

things are not always that easy like people wish it was and also, or even more important, our (arenaplayers) standpoint isnt allways the most important when you see it buisness wise (i wish it was, but it sadly is a fact that it is no longer, probably this will change if people start to make tournaments and the community gets more public attention)

#3798444 PvP Gear upgrades for conquest points on PTR

Posted by Smir on 02 November 2012 - 02:27 PM

to be honest so many good players have soo less time atm, ans this keeps the interest even less
back then when i had time and also did pve i was used to the never ending farming and i was ok with it, but now as i reduced my time to a minimum and just want to play on a equal gear base this is more pissing me off than i am happy about it

wow is already a game where you are forced to play a lost (if you compare it with cs or sc where you can just log in for 30 mins and still have fun) but now this is again once more part that force you to make the game to an addiction

there should be other ways to keep stuff active and this wont foce people to play more arena, this just make them to play more rbg so they get more points

oh missed this:

2 more months of gearing @ 3000 points a week. So total about 4 and a half months to gear, at least 5 months with arena caps.

So if you missed some points, you get a solid couple weeks to play with equal gear before season ends. Boy is this awesome.

pretty much agree 100%

i want the same gear the whole season for every1, i dont like to win cause i outgear them :) (but thats a whole diffrent storry)

#3794524 Chaos Bolt nerf in 5.1

Posted by Smir on 24 October 2012 - 03:30 PM

Well needed, they need to fix aff for a bit more pressure and reduce Demo dmg now.

first of all, there isnt a single specific change posted (or did i miss something) its just a thought at all

and even if they will release everything at the same time in my opinion its always the wrong way they do it (not talking about this specific thing now, its just general shitchat :) )

they should first solve the problem that avoids peole from playing the other speccs, and once they think, that they did a good job with that they HAVE TO downgrade and overwork the once broken specc many people are force to play at the moment

e.g. hunters (Even i think it will be way better if the pets would for christ sake finnaly get fixed) they should first see how they could make the other speccs viable in a better way, and after they did that they shall take a look at how to change around bm specc

if they dont stop the way they act now and did since ages in pvp it will still be (and the game got worse and worse, so changing stuff like they did got worse and worse too) it will never stop to
class op -> change -> freakin bad
class bad -> change -> freakin op

cause i already predict, if they do it like in sc2 (where they look at the ladders to see what needs balancing and what not) they will see a ton of hunter and wars, and the least classes/speccs they see is healpriest and rogues
so they will totally forget about mages (and with the dispel change in panda i see a big problem in the magecontrol, not even talking about dmg, its just the control a mage has since the dispelchange)

so they will nerf wars and hunter to the ground, some teams will then just sit out their raiting and dont risk to drop again
they will fuck up at buffing rogues and priests at the wrong place and most likely forget about mages (as ther are not that many in the top20/40 on most bgs)
and if they do it like they always did it, suddenly rmp will become an op setup again

long story short (if you cba to read all the bullshit i wrote befor)
thats a big wow problem, they start on the wong places, befor you change the current problem, get a backup first and then adjust the problem
but thats only for nerfing, for buffing i actually dont know how they could make it better, beside us
if the community gives more constructive feedback and dont just whine and cry there (like here "I ALLWAYS GET 200K BOLTS NERF PLS") it will hopefully help

if you are annoyed by my typos, i am sorry, but i cba to read over it again ;)

#3794503 Chaos Bolt nerf in 5.1

Posted by Smir on 24 October 2012 - 02:48 PM

no1 is justifying (most dont even enjoy) bullshit like that
but they cant (and hopefully wont) nerf that befor changeing major stuff to make substained destro or afflidmg (more) viable in arena

this stupid choasbolts are the only reason in some setups to take a warlock
the reasons you took warlocks befor like good control and insane survability are way worse atm, and most other casters do better jobs in those regards

so as long as there wasnt anything else done it is for me ok that i can do one freakin chaosbolt in a 10 minute match vs a good team that nearly avoids every bolt and then i finally 3 shot some1 after i just try to survive and nearly do nothing beside stupid rof and felflame spam (and a few stupid instantfears now and then)

and as a little sidenote
if you get hit by 200k chaosbolt over and over again you should somehow change something in your gear or whatever, because so far i have never had a single 200k chaosbolt in an arenagame and my gear is pretty okish

peace out

#3792811 [Warlock] Questions about Destruction Warlock

Posted by Smir on 19 October 2012 - 05:40 PM

1. sacrifice, you want to improve your burst spikes
2. no its bad for pvp, you want it for chaos, shadowburn and selfheal
3. bloodfear is a guaranteed fear you are able to put on whoever you want to make switches even more powerful
4. i gem blue -> pvp power, red -> pvp power / resil, yellow -> mastery pvp power
5. there is no rotation in pvp, its situational, try to get some space, juke... collect embers by using rain of fire and felflame, slow them with conflag and once you have free space or juked call out that you can chaosbolt and try to kill something. but forget about rotations you cant have a general rotation its pvp and not pve :)

#3791317 Shadowcleave

Posted by Smir on 16 October 2012 - 06:59 AM

actually it is viable, but very hard
i would suggest a healsham instead of a druid (if you played with druid)
also its even harder than wld (what isn't the greatest comp imo after playing about 100 games with it)

the problem you have compared to a war is, when you are getting focused you have hardly a chance to get away

if you wanna give it a try, let your lock try destruction
its from my point of view (do it in wld) absolutly no fun compared to affliction but vs teams that are not used to play vs destro you make them panic a lot and sometimes you have the (probably only once in a 10-15 minute game) oportunity to cast chaosbolt with cds and then suddenly you "OH SHIT" blow the other team up
