Tryhards of Season 18

21 July 2016 - 03:32 AM

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s been a while. Today concludes the end of the ACTUAL cataclysm of an expansion. In the words of Garrosh Hellscream, times change. In honor of the new expansion (and in a cheap attempt to out rep Lolflay), here are the tryhards of the last season in Wardads of Draenor.

Death Knight

In an act of Iraq triggered PTSD, this 50 year old DK relentlessly aimed his snipe at a young college girl. This wasn’t the first time Nutsz browsed arenamate for potential targets. He was accustomed to monitoring the ladders on his 18-inch CRT, always ready to use his trackball mouse to click “Join Battle”, all while Fortunate Son was blasting in the background.



Druid

Though it is rumored he has a part time job as Ellen Degeneres stunt double, Minpojke has found his way on this years list. After a devastating DQ from last year’s regionals, Pojke was determined to reign the European ladder for another season. Teaming up with (insert random EU mage here) and a 14 year old Danish boy from Xbox live, Pojke asserted himself as the premier druid among all europine countries.

Hunter

Though he has come a long way from his back to back R1-Duelist days (I shit you not this guy got R1 duelist two seasons in a row), this hunter still remains the cuckold of a bald headed baby gnome. Dillypoo spent countless hours playing the same comp every day of his WoD life. Somewhere in the depths of LFG he located a Priest and Feral Druid who had been afflicted by the Duelist curse. Perhaps sympathizing with their struggle, Dillypoo and his team managed to get slapped around like that milf did in that video I my friend watched last night, losing several points to arcane RMPala. Dillypoo endured and managed to once again have one of the highest games played of any player in the world.

Mage

The queen termite lays 30,000 eggs/day. With a lifespan of 15 years, that translates to 164,250,000 eggs laid in her lifetime. In the natural world, this is an incredible feat, but it is nothing compared to how many arcane mage eggs Babymichael is capable of laying in a single arena season. From the cherry-scented depths of Vape Nation, the Michaelus Guasparitoros is capable of producing 100 Gladiator tier arcane mages in the time it takes him to rip the fattest vape.

Monk

I know this is cheap but Trilltko looks like this so I’m gonna assume he’s one of the biggest tryhards:

If I actually put effort into digging for the tryhard monk this season it would likely be Sethcurry, simply because he was a zero to zero reject who gained an inflated ego due to WW buffs. Nontheless the guy just gives me the heebie jeebies.

But if I really wanted to be honest for a second, Mongery would probably take the cake as tryhard Monk. Getting banned more frequently than he has spelling tests, this child attempted to script his way to the top of the ladder multiple times, only to be stopped by that meddling Brian Holinka and his damned Lore dog.

Paladin

Two wrongs don’t make a right, but seven Wongs make the right dent in the arena ladder to be worthy of our attention. Vincentwong, also known as Jackson Lee, but sometimes known as Fatherwong is the Rynd of this expansion. Dawning multiple paladins, Wong was able to go Godzilla on the arena ladders.

Though he resembles a Japanese nuclear monstrosity, he was capable of doing damage only a specific type of reptilian is capable of (see: Lizards). It is rumored (though unconfirmed) that Vincentwong dialed up his boy Reedz using the Razer Naga Reedz edition to prune the connection of his regional qualifying opponents.

Honorable mention to Killak aka Thelf aka Squirtlelol aka Greenteax aka KobeBryant for laying low after his S15 5v5 wintrades to gain his fifth new identity as a R1 Paladin. Seriously guys, only weird people change their identity like that.


Priest

Dealing with more K’s than the inbox of an angsty teenage girl, Amne managed to secure his position as our tryhard priest. I don’t know much about this guy, other than the fact that his 3k freakout can only be rivaled by S12 Burt. I’ve watched this guy on stream a few times and his frequent nerd-rages are indicative enough to land a spot on our list.

Rogue

Even though he is a good friend of mine, this guy needs to tone it down a bit:

Shaman

If you have ever done Brawlers guild, chances are you have defeated Blat, a simple goo-like organism that explodes into more goo puddles as the fight wears on. This boss encounter was loosely based on an event that occurred over several months in Sweden, as Minpojke’s fat cells were separated from his body to form the 100-celled organism known as Jaimex. This shaman is a prolific poster on this website, first gaining attention as a kickbotter back in MoP. Jaime managed to slowly creep his way on this list as his drive to reproduce was instinctually replaced with a motivation to take over the EU ladder.

Warlock

Can money buy you happiness? Well Sam I am, it sure can! Ignoring that obscure reference that few will understand, it’s time to open our pocketbooks and place our bets on who our tryhard lock is? I almost put some Ozztistic kid, but that would be too boring! The winner of the S18 tryhard Warlock is Locturnal. Spending hundreds of dollars donating and subscribing to his favorite streamers, Locturnal was able to buy his way into this spot. Just like the 13 year old Swedish kids that donate to popular girl streamers, Locturnal was able to buy his way into an artificial friendship with some of our most famous WoW celebrities! Good for him (too bad he didn’t get R1 EleGiggle)! Hey, maybe next paycheck.

Warrior

Failing to swoon Lxxi, Phixie, and Propel and gaining the award for the rejection Hat trick is Swull. This steroid filled rager queued multiple GCDTV’s and failed to qualify in each regional tournament. Maybe he’s a good guy, though—I hear they finish last. And that Swull did, as he finished last in every way possible.

Prepare to fight your last battles of the season—Warlords Season 3 will end at 2:00 a.m. PDT on July 19, 2016.

After the season wraps, we will begin the process of determining eligibility for end-of-season rewards. If you believe that you’ve qualified for Warlords Season 3 PvP rewards, please refrain from transferring your character(s) to another realm or faction until awards are granted approximately two weeks later.

The next PvP season, Legion Season 1, will begin after World of Warcraft: Legion launches on August 30. In the meantime, all Honor and Conquest Points will be converted to in-game currency at a rate of 35 silver per point. Also, Rated Battleground and Arena matches will not be available during the break between seasons. We will confirm the start date of the forthcoming Legion Season 1 at a later date.

Please note that the end of the season does not require a patch to the game, and will occur automatically.

Your days are numbered—get out there and fight!

Balance vs Fun

19 February 2016 - 05:30 AM

Not including WoTLK because many of the people who played Wrath do not still play.

I think Cata had the most prolific imbalances. It was clear that x class was better than y class and there was a defined hierarchy of comps. In MoP, everything felt overpowered. The playing field was equal in terms of every class being balanced around insane mechanics. I think WoD has the greatest balance, but at the cost of making everyone feel average, which is why the perceived fun tends to gravitate towards MoP. While everything was crazy strong, so were you. I think there needs to be a distinction separating different types of balance: underpowered balance (where everyone feels weak), moderate balance (where everyone feels average), powerful balance (where everyone feels strong). WoD made every class feel weaker (probably a lot to do with ability pruning) which had an effect on perceived fun. When everything is based around moderate balance and all else being equal, the better team always wins. In a way that's not fun. For the Legion PvP experience to be enjoyable, I think a focus should be made on making characters feel powerful, even at the cost of some mechanics feeling broken.

Stop using Bubble Wand, idiots

TL;DW

Bubble Wand:

1) Removes all avoidance
2) Cancels autoattacks
