#4570197 Non-damage buttons are missing

Posted Nadagast on 17 March 2016 - 08:56 AM

I don't think this is a novel point, but I posted it at a place where maybe the developers will see it:  http://us.battle.net...pic/20742944716

Support and/or discuss if you like.  At this point, my hopes are low, but, shit, I love WoW arena, when it's good.


#4569279 Bloodline Champions 2 announced!

Posted Naraga on 10 March 2016 - 01:52 AM

As this website spent a lot of time and effort promoting Bloodline Champions back in the day when it was still in closed beta, it seemed only fitting to make a thread about its sequel on here. Promoted as WoW arena, but then without the RNG, many junkies ended up playing the game. In fact, I am convinced most players back in the day found out about the game through this website.

So without any further ado,


https://www.battlerite.com/

"Battlerite is a TEAM ARENA BRAWLER focused on adrenaline-fueled player vs player combat. Short and intense matches, stripped of random elements to optimize the action. Become part of the rite in a battle of reaction. This is vicious “gladiatorial” fighting at its best.

Introducing a wild mix of champions, who each have their set of combo-friendly attacks. There is a character for everyone, whether you are a veteran gamer or a rookie on a rampage. Step up to the challenge and maximise your skills. Predictability leads to punishment, one wrong move and it’s all over."

SIgn up for the beta, and i'll see you all on the other side....

Always interesting to hear people's opinion of eachother in this game and community.

Honestly, there is arguably no way of proving who "the best" is of a certain class, as everyone has their own opinion and view the game from their point of view. Some people love players with beastly mechanics, others prefer "smart" players making clever setups and small tactical plays to win them the game, others rely on predicting the game and knowing all the ins and outs of every class (combined with knowledge of certain players playstyle after playing a lot vs them, for example one of the top FLS's don't focus on killing pets vs mages, whereas another one makes their life depend on it) and working around it.

Just drop the flaming, play to have fun and compete, don't generalize and judge someone off of one mistake - it just makes you look incompetent.

All this nice argueing about who is the best and who is shit :D In 5 years (probably earlier) every single skill one has earned in this precious game will go to waste and the only thing that anyone has left is the salty aftertaste of all the stupid shit they said in their wow time as uberl337 gladiator. So yeah, think about the future my fellow kids :-D be like infernion and get them big bicepsiiisss (baby pls) in the gym  ,that'l last you for longer than your skillz in wow :-D

Management skills you get from managing a guild are a real thing and applicable to anything later in life. Obviously you won't go saying on your CV "hurpdurp managed guild of #X nerds, but I digress.

- French.
- Good knowledge of his class.
- Open to discuss between arenas of real life or any no-WoW theme.
- Do not rage after a lose, being grumpy is allowed.
- I met him/her in real life.
- I appreciate him/her in real life. (Really important, people can be different in real life, good or bad)
- Not arrogant, not condescending with other players.
- Do not have a mage in his character list (The previous point is highly bound to this one). Unless it's his very first character.
- Appreciate dirty jokes, comments, or inappropriate ones like i usually do.

I only met one guy with all this points and we became real life friends. Sad for me he stops playing mid mop.
(It's not you Volkovitch, you have a mage too. Fire, ungeared, and unplayed but mage anyway. Grmbl)

I really like this. The biggest issue in WoW is the fact that its really complicated to see through the reasoning why a player decided to press button A instead of button B. This is where the dunning kruger effect should be referenced.

Quote

The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias whereby relatively unskilled people suffer from illusory superiority, mistakenly assessing their ability to be much higher than it really is. Dunning and Kruger attributed this bias to a metacognitive inability of the unskilled to recognize their own ineptitude and evaluate their own ability accurately.

This is the reason why less skilled/intelligent/experienced players look at K:D, DPS, HPS and try to build a correlation to skill.
A game with so many layers of decision making cannot be just broken down to a number like DPS.

In PvE you always had players applying from #1 realm guilds thinking they were the best player in the world with 99th percentile rankings. One look into the Logs (Worldoflogs, warcraftlogs) showed the truth behind those rankings and often times revelead that they dont even manage to get a perfect opener (wrong prioritization of skills in the first 30 secs of a fight) or fail often to mitigate dmg taken etc.

It comes down to the fact that those players never reflect on their mistakes and never had motivation to improve because of the illusion of beeing already the best.

When i played CS:GO in 2015 my goal was to get to GE by soloqueing. After getting into LE i watched my demos and came to the conclusion that my aim sucked even though i made good decision and had good positioning. So i could either go on aim maps and work on my aim or work on my strengths (Reading the enemy, tactics etc.). So before i played more matchmaking i started practicing smokes, flashes, molotoves on every single map. I worked on my communication and always made sure that people knew whats happening and what to smoke / popflash. After that i played around 50 more games of MM and got into global (which was only 97th percentile back in 2015).

Without reflecting and really trying to understand the game you wont improve and you will also never be able to assess somebodys skill.

Posted Healingstat on 22 February 2016 - 04:22 AM

I feel like a lot of the T1 Comps have a decent chance against each other in the current meta, as was demonstrated by the many close series and the fact teams often didn't change comp and rather fancied their chances in these close series. Was really happy with the tournament this weekend, and I hope many of you were also, I know there can be a lot of negativity in the community but a lot of people are posting really nice stuff and that is really motivating. Make sure you tune in same time next weekend for the next one! (There will be a qualifier Friday also next week of course). GG's
