#4464392 Holinka making sure cdew makes it

Posted Datacuss on 01 August 2015 - 04:54 PM

Holinka is doing every thing in his power cdew and snutz make it to blizzcon.

First he's going to make it so there is a 15% dampening before the gates open.

Second, hes going to nerf starsurge by 15% when incarnation/celestial alignment stacking is the reason it's hitting so hard. (boomkins had 1 comp, thats like nerfing spriests instead of mage/pally lol)

Third hes going to make it so warlocks do the most single target damage in the game.

Crazy how the pvp dev can decide who makes it to blizzcon every year

If you've been queueing 3v3 lately I'm pretty sure you can see what I'm talking about with warlocks, notice how boomkins get a  insta nerf the day after qualifiers, then realize warlocks get a buff with drain soul

#4434104 When you're so bored of the season-

Posted BalanceRexxar on 11 June 2015 - 05:47 AM

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.

at this point i think the race to write the best essay on how to save wow is more competitive than the actual ladder

#4375505 No Horde in the top 200

Posted jaimex on 28 January 2015 - 11:55 PM

if 3 players in a team who were good, like pojke walle zeepeye or someone, went horde and played a few sessions they would still stay high.

Factions don't matter that much.

He is a SENIOR game designer that has been with Blizzard for just over 2 years.
i see a lot of people have posted this sentiment and are under the impression that because he is not able to directly apply changes to the game immediately he is a diligent worker singlehandedly trying to shovel water off of the titanic, while kotick and co. grind deeper into the iceberg of RMTs and hunters

if you understand the universe of information that is arena and the arena community, though, and compare it to the information he's operating on, it is truly impossible to think that holinka (or to my knowledge, most blizzard developers) are adequate.  if you were to confront holinka right now and ask him about a handful of the most important things about arena, how much light would he be able to shed? how many of your questions would he even be able to respond to with a level of accuracy that a random guy you meet who is telling you about powerleveling his leatherworking at his garry couldn't match?

let's take a sample of questions:

immediate issues with abilities and mechanics of classes that are most salient right now (right now, this is resto druids): this is an issue he'd be able to respond to with some accuracy from sponging information from high rated players

increasingly homogenized kits (despite claims of wanting to separate from this for years) and abilities that are totally non-interactive and counterintuitive (ice nova is a good example): i can't imagine a good answer to this question - i can't envision any scenario where any developer is able to adequately respond to the question, "why was ice nova ever in the game?" but you could chalk this one up to inertia, which i will tentatively accept

rampant cheating on ladders: i'm sure we're all familiar with the number of people who cheated (ddos, wintrade, etc.) last season, and i know most active players are aware of at least a handful of them. there are at least 40 cases where someone cheated for a rank 1 title last season alone that are practically common knowledge in the arena community. despite increasing the amount of time before titles were distributed, somehow practically nobody got reset. if i know, you know, most of the high rated players on this board and a significant percentage of the arena community as a whole (your everyday twitchgoers) are aware of the kuiloxes of the world, in what universe is the head of pvp development and communication doing an adequate job if he isn't also aware?

sales, etc.: here's another big one. i personally don't care about sales, i think if someone wants to buy a carry that contract is between them and the seller, but it's another common knowledge issue that's extremely easy to detect just buy checking their pvpratings graph or using your brain. most of the time, the people that buy the carries get reported by their jealous friends and presumably blizzard sends out an investigative team of GMs who eventually throw their hands up in the frustration of not being able to crack the sophisticated planes trains and automobiles code. still, an entire aspect of arena that largely goes unnoticed by the only group with any authority

the game is openly mocked by the people who abuse the system the most in the most public of venues. kaska played at the last blizzcon

if you consider the percentage of the high rated community who is aware of the most significant problems with the game mechanically and structurally, and that the lead developer is supposedly a paragon of communication through his twitter (which at this point may as well just be an alternate social media booster for the buffalo bills), it's kind of astounding how little information actually seems to be communicated

i also see a lot of people claiming changes are being made more rapidly than before. this was not my experience. i couldn't disagree with this more, really. the crossrealm arena individual ladder change was a great change they made in the middle of MoP. it was immediately followed by one of the longest seasons of all time, which was truly a full, 100% extension of the previous season with zero changes, totaling over a year of the same game. every pvp developer could have hypothetically not come into work. as i remember, changes were made much more frequently and responsively a long time ago

attached is a real screenshot i took less than a minute ago when i visited holinka's twitter

i can only imagine the confusion of someone who just started playing the game digging through those pictures of tony romo and plants trying to learn about which direction the game is going and emerging even more confused than they entered

#4309623 Anyone feel bored with the season already?

Posted Mindllapse on 21 December 2014 - 05:31 AM

I feel very bored with this season already and am not very motivated by fun to do anymore 3s

feels like the comps are very stale due to balancing issues which makes games really repetitive

I'm playing HLD as survival hunter and it goes like this every game:

ret/x/x - force 2 sacs, then get free points because ret teams can never kill our comp unless we make big mistakes during phases of ret wings (but killing them takes three times as much effort compared to any other comp due to endless sacs)

combat rogue/x/x - outplay them here and there and be ahead on cooldowns, and then eventually our healer still dies through multiple defensives and peels and we lose unless they really really screw up

warlock/x/x - interrupt the right 2-3 game changing fears at the right time and win, otherwise lose

and that's all. It really seems like that's all the good comps there are because those 3 classes are so over the top this season and the pace of any comp they play will completely revolve around the mechanics of their spec. Godcomp is really hard to beat too but I rarely see them compared to ret/x/x combat rogue/x/x warlock/x/x.

My own class doesn't feel all that rewarding when winning either because there isn't much counterplay to 12sec instant traps, but my comp doesn't revolve around me - it revolves around my warlock surviving and putting out pressure.

That's what makes this season feel really boring to me, every comp entirely revolves around either ret, warlock, or combat rogue because of how strong they are so that every game is basically vs the same 3 comps.
