#4212238 2014 NA Regional Drama Wrap-Up

Posted Regent on 18 September 2014 - 11:54 PM

Since there has been a lot of drama recently, I figured I would make a TL;DR thread for those of you that have successful real lives and can't sit on ArenaJunkies 24/7.

The North American Regional Qualifiers:
  • Hosted by ESL (the same company that organized the holocaust)
  • 2800 players qualify but only 50 Teams signed up
  • No seeding and random placement meant some popular teams eliminated each other right of the bat
  • Zero interaction with Blizzard, even after the ESL website wasn't working
  • People suspect Blizzard will be asking for some of the money they paid ESL back, since ESL apparently completely forgot that they were supposed to hold this tournament
Vanguards team gets knocked out because of a "no-show":
  • Timestamp does show that Vanguards team was almost 30 minutes late to their match
  • They claim they had no idea the time they were supposed to play
  • Poor organization and almost no help from ESL admin, many people think they didn't deserve the loss
  • Vanguards, being the least confrontational person in existence, made a nice forum post saying how he is slightly angry that he missed out on a chance for $40,000 USD
Jah's team gets knocked out and tries to get back in on a technicality, twice:
  • Claims his first loss was not actually the "real" game and only practice
  • Screenshots show his team agreeing it was the real game
  • Some people claim that after his second loss he tried to contact tournament admin and get it changed
  • Talbadar is "disappointed" in jah
  • Jah, unsurprisingly, calls everyone "retards" and hasn't been seen since
Wizk's team cheats and has other players, not on their roster, play:
  • By far the biggest drama generating event of the tournament
  • Wizk, Jakenotezz, and Random rogue decided to play RPS in tournament
  • Upon tournament brackets coming out, they realize they will have to fight comps that are strong against them
  • Wizk realizes that it would be too obvious to ddos his opponents, he determines he will have to come up with another way to cheat
  • Wizk replaces his rogue and rsham with an rdruid and mage who are not on his team roster and then wins multiple games (it is assumed that the mage was played by, "Piecez," and the druid by, "Rynd")
  • People (obviously) realize what is happening and he gets disqualified for cheating
  • Wizk then cries, makes a 40 minute video about why he didn't cheat, no one believes him
  • Jakenotezz, then makes a post on AJ admitting that they cheated, apologizing, and says he only did it to bang his 18 y/o e-girlfriend when he goes to New York
  • Wizk then claims he is too good for this community
  • Wizk locks in his spot next to Xandyn in the "top 5 scummiest wow players of all time"
  • Randomroguex is mad that no one knows who he is, doesn't understand the concept of why cheating is bad, and is apparently a part of some "elite cheaters club"
Multiple teams Disqualified after the tournament ends based on their geographical location:
  • Apparently it was easier to allow these people to play in the tournament and then disqualify them after they won
  • Raises multiple questions about the outcome of the tournament, since the teams who got DQ'ed knocked people out of the tournament
  • The dominant team of Jeff, Barry, and Twochainz is rumored to be one of the teams DQ'ed
Avangelyne proves he is really weird:
  • Made multiple weird posts about having a girlfriend
  • Multiple awkward tweets involving, but not limited to: old memes, obscure Norwegian cover bands, and History channel TV shows
  • All of this is okay though, because according to him, he "has a lot of friends"
Former 3rd place Blizzcon team, "PvP Live" replaces healer the night before qualifiers:
  • but apparently forget to tell him he is off the team
  • Famous monk, "Dannycarey" is replace by other famous monk, "Verdantstorm"
  • Novoz and Thugonomicz imply that Dannycarey is part of something (Illuminati?)
  • Dannycarrey still hasn't run out of mana
Glinks:
  • Surprisingly, Glinks didn't cheat or try to ddos anyone
  • Nice work, Glinks
World of Warcraft PvP Designer, "Holinka" no where to be found:
  • A week has gone by since his last sighting
  • Police have decided to end the search
  • His family stays hopeful
Arena Junkies:
  • Datacus tries really hard to get some free rep, fails miserably
  • For the first time in over a year, people are capped out on giving rep
  • If you point out any scummy things that friends of the moderators have done, you will be getting an infraction
  • Flavour is still making stupid posts
  • Dillypoo's insults have been getting noticeably better over time, possibly hitting puberty soon?
  • Bigmoran tries to dispel ddos rumors by threatening to ddos anyone who talks about it
  • Thugonomicz believes that Arenajunkies.com is actually "Horse cocks"
  • Bailamos dropped in to insult Jakenotezz for having an e-girlfriend, the irony is palpable
  • More wintrading in EU, no one is surprised
  • The "scummy dozen" continue to rep each-other in an attempt to make it seem like they have some community support
  • Ayra is still black, and still european

"I think at the time of his ban he had 3000+ posts over a few years."

Post number does not make you less likely to receive an infraction point. Braindance was banned due to 7 different incidents over these few years. Almost all of them are insults that were only worth 1 point, but it added up. I think his combative nature has eventually led to this.

Insulting a user is meant to receive an infraction point. It's a very plain and simple rule. You can question what they're posting, but don't attack them personally. I think it's a very simple rule and easy to follow.

"For every member you ban, another will pop up who will do something equally volatile."

Not banning anyone at all is not an answer. Rules can control a certain degree / amount of toxicity and without rules nothing can be progressed.

We appreciate everyone who is concerned about the site. But please work with us rather than AGAINST us. The mods aren't out here to make the site crap. Granted we are humans and humans can make mistakes. If someone is openly homosexual and you call them "gay", yes you probably shouldn't receive an infraction point for that. Every infraction point a mod gives can be seen by the other mods. If you feel a certain ban / infraction wasn't right feel free to contact us. Do not post about it, frankly posts made questioning mods should receive an infraction itself including this one. We're letting this one past this time because we realize AJ is in an awkward spot in regards to what it was built upon.

We will continue to try to make the best choices but we need the users to help us with it.

-Braindance won't be perma-banned but rather suspended. In regards to what he received a point for he can contact me if he wants the details. However keep in mind that is how the system works. With enough minor incidents you can be banned or suspended. Just please try to post without attacking anyone!

I didn't ban Braindance, but I did give him one infraction.  I'm not uber anti-Braindance or something, and I don't think I'd be against unbanning him, if he said he'd act nicer.  I don't give infractions very often, and I've never banned a single person.  I have no idea about anything regarding your last suspension, I was not involved at all.  If you have problems with the mod team, maybe they're valid, maybe they're not, but they aren't with me.

Asserting that doing something is pointless doesn't make you automatically right.  If you think nobody will change, then you don't have to participate or get your hopes up, I don't see why you feel the need to tell me that.  Worst case, I'm wasting my time.  Let me.



#4056815 Dis Shout

The amount of retardation in this thread.

10-12 yard pummel? Why not just give Warriors fucking counterspell while you're at it LOL. Boohoo you can't AoE interrupt half of Asia with 1 button anymore, guess you just have to keep doing unhealable and unpeelable damage.

No class should have 2 kicks without some kind of dr on interrupts.

#4055024 Vigaboy exploiting the ladder

Posted KPul on 17 February 2014 - 02:30 AM

Are you making this thread in hopes of him getting reset, just so you can complain about the lack of DK's who got rank one and then use that as a way to say DKs are underpowered and need buffs?

#4006024 WMD new Mage problems

Posted Azuremars on 05 December 2013 - 03:02 PM

As a mage you need to CC and play aggressive or you're dead meat. Mages are the squishiest class in the game so you have to minimize melee contact on you. Keep them in novas (remember nova and freeze DR), poly when possible, use ring around pillars and pom ring on top of freezes or novas.

Your druid needs to keep cloning DPS because he will never be able to heal two melee training you.

Good old AJ. Copy from MMO one day later.


#3996382 Titles and ladder rank based on the season highest rating with 100+ wins

Posted Hoodzx on 19 November 2013 - 07:34 PM

Well the problem of this idea is all the exploiters that will just go to 2.9k then go down to 2.0k without being banned and will get insta rank 1 :P

But i understand your point !
