you guys ruined your own bracket trying to take a pathetic shortcut to arbitrary internet recognition and now even the average player knows to discard rbg tryhards due to the culture and actual quality of players/games
people including myself were cautiously optimistic about a rbg tournament, it's still a WoW tournament which should be a net positive, but it's unsurprisingly totally ruined by the participants
recall that when kollektiv got a group together to play one of these they played games with a pretty minimal amount of interference and then admitted defeat after it was over. the rbg cesspool can't even play a legitimate series and then has to argue about who actually won or what was or wasn't fair after the game is over. talbadar said, despite losing, the result was fitting of the attitude most of the arena players had toward rbgs despite much prior experience
the tournament truly does end up meaning nothing and just poisons everyone's attitude more when the teams are claiming relief to not be playing and no team can agree on what rules or conditions of the tournament were fair
unsurprisingly ruined another good thing for the community
at this point it'd be a net gain for the game if they made the rbg ladders unrated and just matched on mmr. people desperate for internet attention and ddos would fade because the only reason to queue would be to have good games

Every rogue that defends BOS because of Faire Swarm needs to realize that there are 9 other classes in the game that don't have the tools to deal with that retarded ability.
my biggest qualm with this argument is that people think druids have enough free globals to press it every single time a rogue press burst of speed. someone told me that button isn't even on the gcd lol.
no class should move at 900% walk speed the entire length of a game, anyone who opposes a burst of speed nerf is the epitome of a mop rogue and has no idea what they're talking about.
i thnk both faerie swarm and burst of speed need to be removed from the game though
edit: besides just wait for 6.1 till you can train a druid into the ground becuase they can't displacer garrote anymore :3

I'm pretty sure Holinka doesn't have good interpersonal skills with all the sarcastic comments and down right rude replies he posts to twitter.
I also didn't know stomping around the 1500 bracket and completing LFR and a bit of normal mode counted as "extensive experience playing world of warcraft"
Common sense really should be listed there too.
Like when people complained to Holinka saying why did they make Ashran compulsory and he said it wasn't. Only if you wanted the slight edge. Well then of course it's fucking compulsory you stupid jebend.
The only thing he knows is "what's fun to play" in our games. He does a great job at that with all the fotm he manages to manufacture. Because hey, no matter what rating, fotm is fun, right?
I think it really sumarises the whole company when they can't even make sure that their own website for job applications is up to scratch. Lots of times they've given info on how to apply for specific job that directly contradicts what they've said is required to apply.
For example to apply as an in-game customer service rep in EU. You must be fluent in English and Polish. If you scroll further down, it then says; "Only applications with a cover letter in both English will be considered".
They can't even fucking proof read it, for fucks sake. You need all these fancy degrees and experience to work there and they can't even write out simple fucking sentences and proof read them.
Infact, scratch that about the fancy degrees. No wonder there's so much shit in this game. The LEAD GAME DESIGNER only needs a Ba to apply for the job. A fucking Ba? So you're telling me, after 3 years of uni, in what could be Art, music or some sort of air-fairy bollocks party degree, then 5 years down the line I could be the Lead Designer of a game that's played by 10 million people? Seems pretty fucking legit, right?
Granted that's the worst case scenario. More likely they've got a degree in computer programming or something and I'd fucking hope a whole lot more than a fucking Ba.
Then again, Holinka probably is worst case scenario.
Well, just seen dear old Brian's Linkedin profile and apparently he has a Masters in Computer Science as well as a Bachelor's of Science in Computer Science. I really think he needs to provide proof of these qualifications. Because either he's lying or his brains have rotted away since then.
How has Honlinka not been fired yet? There's been nothing but negative feedback about him and how have Blizzard not upped their standards. It's really fucking disgraceful.
Like upgrading their servers AFTER WoD launch? Any inbred redneck high on meth knew that the servers should have been upgraded before the launch. Not during/after it.
How did they get away with designing the first Garrison quest to only be able to completed by ONE person at a time in a non-phased zone? It's so fucking dumb, common sense really does escape this company.
For a week after the launch of WoD, the stock price of Activison Blizzard was declining. What the FUCK? Honestly? Why wouldn't they have spent money to make sure that the launch was smooth? They really can't seem to grasp the concept of quality.
