Is it just me, or does every class have too many cooldowns?

Yup, this is literally THE problem with MOP. I don't think it can even be fixed at this point, the arena game is just not fun.

Healers are basically unkillable in arena settings. I have a 10 minute video frapsd of myself and my mage friend trying to kill a resto druid 1v2 in nagrand after his partner died. For 20 minutes, going all out, we weren't able to kill him because displace beast is a 100% guaranteed get away. We only finally got a kill after some lucky crits. Now throw in two partners in 3s pealing for the druid and getting a kill just isn't possible.

Playing sp/mage/druid, our druid literally never dies. Bark skin+iron bark+displace beast+void shift+iceblocl+trinket, are you kidding me? You literally have to go threw all of these cooldowns + fully c/c us to get a kill on him.

I'm only speaking on behalf of druids because thats the healer I have the most experience in playing with/dealing with, but every healer other than priest and monk seems pretty unkillable (resto shamans are beasts too).

Chain cooldowns for DPS are retarded too, that's how BM hunters and Warriors are doing stupid unhealable damage.

Then lets not forget all the instant c/c, scatter shot (that you cant even SWD anymore) into trap, monk instant c/c, pom ring, BLOOD FEAR, warrior int. shout only on 1 min cd, blind (at least this one is a long cool down), psyfiend (what a retarded spell seriously), the plethora of paladin c/cs/stuns (instant stun/blinding light, castable repentance), instant cyclone from ferals. This game is just not fun anymore, you cant avoid c/c, and you you have to get through 15 different cooldowns for a kill opportunity (unless you're a bm hunter/warrior, then just keep on chain cds til something dies).

tldr; I'm having zero fun in arenas now, dunno about you guys.

Stopped following it when he started to rant about how GW2 is superior in every way which is just simply false.

3dps isn't even that good anymore. in fact i think the only viable version is indeed ret/hunter/rogue, and even then its p.easy to counter now due to the fact everybody has good gear

Can we do Emerald Drama please. Pleaaaseee?
  • Even A:H ratio (not that I give a shit about world PvP)
  • Central Server
  • No queue times
  • Decent BG, relatively active ladders currently.
  • RPPvP (it's hilarious)
  • An incredibly active server-only forum dedicated to shit talking people
  • There's a warrior that they refer to as their "king", and the server stage giant Horde v. Alliance fights trying to take down said "king tank".
  • A giant guild made of only dwarves that RPs all over Ironforge every day.

Adding some cool stuff about ED:

- They make server wide Bounty Hunter matches where there is a target on the opposite faction that everyone is trying to kill.
- Awesome economy because it's med-high pop, but not full like Illidan. Lots of PvE sluts to flood the market with crafted items.
- Good PvE guilds, if that's your thing.
-They actually have a forum that is about the drama that goes on, lots of shit-talking and bitching and I know everyone here loves that.

Anyway, I think if everyone can mutually migrate to ED and make it "the" PvP server for MoP it will be better than any previous server simply because of all the cool stuff. And it's central.

I don't understand why Emerald Dream is getting so popular. God knows it's just going to be a bunch of angry nerds laughing at other nerds roleplaying. The world PVP is good, but I don't agree with going to a server like that where the incoming PVP community could theoretically ruin the server community they have there.

Right now it's 106-55 for a Central server though. This poll won't do much if it's Tich vs All-the-other-central-servers.

Tich (BG9) was the original PvP server. Throughout the entire history of the game the community thrived there, teams weren't afraid to queue, nobody sat rating and there were actual "teams" with synergy and playtime together not just people playing OP alts with heroic gear. The comment about the aussies providing late-night queues is actually HUGE as well. Obviously those times are long gone, but what I think Snutz intention was to just bring people together where it always has succeeded. Snutz is east so it's not like he benefits from choosing that.
The only relavent thing here is - OK, maybe aussies would make Qs better on west than they could be elsewhere. I don't know if that outweighs the benefits of all US players going central.

Sidenote: Why is there so much talk about ping now, yet no one said anything when KT was the primary choice? I've played with 100ms this entire expansion, it comes secondary when the goal is competition.
I don't know. Seems like a mistake. We are correcting the mistake if we go central, and we are making the same mistake again if we go to a coast.

View Posthoodrych, on 15 September 2012 - 08:23 PM, said:

what? so because "reckful and co" choose a west server that's the end of the argument? Laughable...As if they speak for the whole arena community. They're choosing Tich because that's where they want to play, that's where the majority went in the beginning of Cata and the community was decent. The entire last half of the expansion on KT has been the worst the community has seen so they're just trying to build up the original PvP hub.
They're trying to speak for the whole community. I don't know yet if I am really opposed to Tich for myself, but they are trying to pull everyone there without a discussion or a vote, or atleast Snutz is.

View Posthoodrych, on 15 September 2012 - 08:23 PM, said:

Central is fair, if the majority chooses that, then that is where people will end up (including myself). I voted Tich because I'm West, Biased and it has history (not some dogshit RP server)
I think you can agree that your three reasons there are terrible reasons. You know that central would be most fair, being biased is obviously not a good way to look at it and decide, and obviously "history" doesn't matter at all.

Tichondrius Horde is still the server and will be the server where the competition will take place, like it's always been. All throughout WotLK and BC it was on BG9 that the queues were bumping, even at the start of Cata till Reckful quit.

There's really no argueing behind it, the post was to direct other players to Tichondrius Horde as it's always been the best server to play on with no complaints
What? You're just ignoring all the things people have said about the benefits of a central server? And the criticism of trying to pull everyone west without considering other people's opinions? Jesus.

View Postsnutzywow, on 15 September 2012 - 08:22 PM, said:

there are a ton of aussie players and having them to play against at any time of the day or being able to queue wow at anytime is always a plus.
I don't know if that outweighs the benefits of all US players going central, since you should know that a considerable amount of people from the east will not go west. You guys going west will probably split the NA Qs in half, whereas they could be all together on a central server.

How hard is it to honestly play with 80-100 ping instead of 30?

That is a really shitty attitude to have when the fact is that on average, best ping for NA players would be central.

Illidan or bust.

Central, already popular, does not screw over East cost.

#3768772 #1 PvP Server?

Posted Jah2828 on 14 September 2012 - 10:00 PM

east coast goes to tich .. 100-200ms ... east to illi ~40ms  .... west to illi, ~80ms.

80ms is much easier to deal with than 200

#3768771 #1 PvP Server?

Posted Jah2828 on 14 September 2012 - 09:58 PM

Why would you go to Tich Horde instead of Illidan? Its much more fair to be playing on a central server than a west coast one for the US as a whole.

Hey Guys,

I realized that all throughout Cataclysm there wasn't a 'specific' server or battle group where arena took place all the time. Kel'Thuzad was pretty populated but it never was like how it was in Wrath of the Lich King.

A number of people recently transfered back to Tichondrius and we all decided to race change horde, we figured it was time for a change and the horde racials are a lot better for PvP in the upcoming expansion.

I was hoping to make a VERY populated PvP server like Blackrock back in season 7-8 and hopefully this will increase the competition.

Many top players have already transfered and many more will come, if you would like to be apart of the competition when MoP hits make sure you transfer over to Tichondrius - Horde and send me a message, I'll be sure to invite you to the guild.

We all like competition, and we all love arena, let's combined the two and make the #1 PvP Server!
