#3972226 Regarding Batens Thread on Wintrading

Posted flubbah on 23 October 2013 - 10:05 PM

If jah decides to play WMD on US ladder he'll not drop a game. Only reason Baten has such a sick w/l ratio is because he ONLY plays WMD on this druid. 3 top players with good synergy can't drop a game with that comp


#3971212 Regarding Batens Thread on Wintrading

Posted Bigmoran on 23 October 2013 - 02:03 AM

**I decided to make this a seperate thread, instead of posting it on the individual post itself so that it wouldn't detract from the point of that thread**

While I do agree that wintrading is reprehensible, I find it ironic that the thread was made by a person who has a very conspicuous win/loss on the EU ladders.

In fact, the top players on EU all have really dodgy win/losses. I don't think they are wintrading or exploiting, tho Trillebartom was one of the players who originally exploited the conquest bug. Instead I think there is a serious problem with top EU players not queing into each other. Dodging is, to some degree, a form of queue manipulation and is overall bad for competition (just as wintrading is bad for competition).

Just contrast EU ladders to US ladders and you can clearly see there is some sort of anti-competitive outlook among the top players:

My challenge to EU is to start having actual competition instead of making a thread directed at an entire country in the name of fair play.

#3939906 The Truth; 5v5 Tich Disqualification

Posted TteSPORTSDoomsen on 14 September 2013 - 07:59 PM

Posting this for Kisz:

**Update:

Hello again everyone,

I'm here with very good news today as we just found out that our disqualification has been reverted. I'm sure in no small part due to the efforts of everyone here who supported us.

I'm writing this now to thank everyone who helped us in any way, we truly appreciate it. I was overwhelmed by the responses I received in-game, over Skype and in this thread from all the people sending their regards and support, it means a great deal to me personally to have that many friends be there for me when the chips were down.

Hopefully everyone can see now that we were legitimate and that unfortunately Blizzard does sometimes make mistakes.

I'd like to give a shout to Xarkhorin, a Spanish EU game master who did more for us than any other person at blizzard with whom I spoke, he took the time to properly look into our case and it showed. Thank you.


#3938959 Arena in 5.4

Posted Veev on 13 September 2013 - 03:25 PM

The general pace of arena feels pretty amazing right now.

I played some wargames yesterday and was downright amazed at how different (and better) the game felt.  Damage and healing values feel much closer to TBC values than ever before.  You typically see kills coming far in advance, you actually have time to react and use cooldowns appropriately, etc.  Oh, and healer mana seems to be a thing again.

The game feels very different in general though and will take some getting used to for healers I suspect.  Seems like people hover at low health for the vast majority of the game, which used to create a general state of panic, but will just be the norm now.  Class balance seems like it'll be pretty decent this patch, but it's probably a little too early to tell.  All of this, combined with the merged battlegroups, is making this patch look like one of the most promising (and drastically game changing) ones yet.  Props to Blizzard, think they finally did something right this patch!

#3936758 Tryhards of Season 13

Posted Bigmoran on 10 September 2013 - 09:01 AM

This is a really untimely occasion for me to post this as I'm recieving tons of criticism in other threads but I think it would be a nice abd refreshing to collect all the R1 drama in one thread. I wrote most of this thread in advance, so some of the information might be dated.

Hey ladies and gentlemen, this type of thread hasn't surfaced on Arena Junkies in quite some time and seeing as this HOPEFULLY will be the last season for generally scum-baggery, I hope my post gets the attention it deserves. Most of my information from below comes from conversations about US ladders and focuses heavily on things I've heard through the grapevine. If you are a friend of mine and are on this list, no need to fret, this list is but a post in jest, and one that I hope will not ruin friendships (pls forgive me).

DK: Vigarista. Although not known by many, this Brazilian backpeddling superstar has made an appearance on a few BGs this season (namely Rampage, Retal, and Ruin). He seems to follow with the other Brazilian gods, playing PHD with the likes of Rynd and Beilgatta. For whatever reason, his Retal team decided to que LSD at the same time Rositajones was queing shatterplay. This led to a devastrating tank. Vigarista,  who was previously on the roster, backpeddled away into darkness to never be seen again.

Posted Image


DRUID: Once whipped by popular streamer Bamfxo, Lickerz, has been a realiable asset to the 5v5 bracket. Often playing with Kaska, Lickerz is present on five different BGs, all in the pursuit of the Tyrannical gladiator title.

Honorable mention go to Coolbears, the 15 year old Jewish Jungle-cleaver who literally combined rosters with himself after getting farmed on Ruin.
(http://us.battle.net...ns One African/) I don't actually know how many BG's he is on but I would venture to say it's more than the amount of hair he has on his armpits.

HUNTER: A prolific poster on this website, the winner of our try hard hunter goes to Reedz. Playing on at least three BGs, Reedz quickly became master of the 5v4 and 5v3 brackets. Unfortunately for Reedz, his razer naga dream team took some devastating losses on the Sunday night before season end, leaving only a trail of tears, a discarded box of Hot Pockets, and a 19 Button Expert Gaming Mouse that can be yours for the low price of $68.99. Merc out.

Posted Image


MAGE: Also known as SJ, probably short for his Sloppy Job at playing fire, the try hard mage of this season is Spicychopz! This kermit the frog voiced washed up bong is playing on five different BG's with little to no competition.

Sharing this award is Jahmilli, the highest rated player in World of Warcraft. Jahmilli was able to take time out of his role in the upcoming movie Insidious: Chapter 2 to get some titles. He climbed to the top of the ladder on a few BGs, patching together a Frankenstein lineup of  Goonies to 2800+.

Honorable mention goes to Rositajones. This flamboyant Living Bomb god has somehow convinced Jahmilli that he is worth carrying. He is playing on 2-3 different BG's going for R1. Though a tip of the hat to his team for achieving the highest 3v3 rating in the world.

Posted Image


MONK: There really is no try hard monk that I can think of. Dannycarrey is undoubetly the best monk that currently plays but I think by default this award should go to Jordons, the previous ring leader of the Cataclysm wintrading cartel (Jordons, Perry, Nevz). This season he will be adding another red helmet to his collection on Arena Junkies. It is sad that he has retired his days of controlling every BG, though I think his understudies (namely Kaska) have done a fair job of carrying on his legacy.

PALADIN: Gsgsgsgsgs. This emotionally troubled helpless romantic has found himself chasing as many rank 1's as he does girls. He is currently on the Rank 1 3v3 on two BGs, and the rank 1 5v5 on three BG's. His strategy is undoubtedly "Get rank 1, get laid."

PRIEST: The priest category has multiple winners. The reason for this is that priests seem to be essential for success in the 5v5 bracket. It is also the class in which we see the highest ratio of scum. It is said that 5% of the world population is related to Ghenghis Khan. By similar logic, I'm inducing that 5% of the priest population is related to Jordons. Carrying on his legacy of tryhardedness and wintrading genetics is Seestraighz, the sleepless superstar of the 5v5 bracket who is playing on five different BGs; Aetarius, the hopeful Aussie whose dreams have been repetedly crushed by resets (he's now going for R1 on two BGs); Exumbra, the autistic bottomfeeder turned slightly better than bottomfeeder who literally transferred an entire team (http://us.battle.net...5/mort de rire/) just out of spite of Seestraightz (http://us.battle.net...s_for_u_steven/); and Anapolis, the priest healing the aforementioned Coolbears.
Honorable mention to Save, but with a hair style that marvelous, he deserves exclusion from the main list.

ROGUE: Try hard rogue goes to my friend Fhos, who is playing on at least two BGs in hopes of the prestigious Tyrannical Gladiator.

SHAMAN: Currently receiving his PHD in Computer Science while finishing up his internship at Cisco systems, Kaska has somehow managed to infiltrate almost every single BG. Though the print on his Alt and TAB keys is surely reduced to cheeto dust and sweat by now, he still manages to be one of the most feared shadowrealmers in this community.

Honorable mention to Adversa - this newcomer to the Rank 1 scene is a strong candidate for S13 Most Improved Player. His teams never fail to get wins in the clutch; the force of his heals often causing a player of the opposing team to inexplicably log off.

WARLOCK: The obvious choice for warlock would be Rawkus, but I will spare him the humiliation and assign the title to Dotaphd, who hopefully is getting an actual PHD seeing as the debt on his mom's credit card from WoW related expanses is probably more than the average cost of grad school.

WARRIOR: There really were no try hard warriors this season. I almost gave this title to Casval, seeing as he was on the most BGs of any warrior this season, but instead I give the title to previous Rank 1 KFC hero, Halcyons. This guy's team spam q'd the last week of the season, falling short of Rank 1 by nearly 150 points.

Posted Image


Most pathetic: Though I am somewhat biased in handing this one out, Exumbra is surely the most pathetic person of this season. As I mentioned he had partaken in transferring an entire team to two different BGs to try and screw over Seestraightz (costing time and money in the name of revenge). Not only that but his 5v5 team on Ruin literally had a scouting schedule. It was confirmed by multiple people that he assigned members of his team different time slots to scout our server to see when we would que. Aside from that he claimed to have "eyes" on our server. When confronted about it he said that has a few people on Real ID from Bleeding Hallow horde who notify him and his team when any one of us log on.

<<< [2:40:10 PM] Aric (Exum): i have 6 teams with 2.3k mmr looking to snipe u

Best rating camper: Sodez and Mackenzie. Though Mackenzie has since tanked from his days at Rank 1 Bloodlust, Sodez has topped the charts on BG9 for months now. He sits on his slot from the $40 throne of Honey Bunches of Oats encrusted Target Brand chair at the gaming house. Luckily some Mastermind and his prodigy rogue were able to climb the ladder to an impressive 2840 rating.

Posted Image


Honorable mention goes to Cyprix, Elfxhunter, and Wizkhalifax who have literally been sitting their rating since a month into the season.

Boldest wintrader: Navajitas - Hailing for the land of Tacos y Burros, this sloth looking Feral Droid has made numerous attempts to climb to Rank 1 on Vindication. He was recently stripped of all his rating and gear but luckily had an honorable buddy by his side to get back his cherished Tyrannical gear (GG Tyranical Conquest Achievement). Since he has been reset he has disbanded his second climb team, claiming to do so because the win ratio looked bad.


Biggest virgin award goes to me. This is probably the most pathetic thing I've ever invested so much time into. I need to keep my rep/post ratio above a 4.0; this is the only way I know how.
Oh, and a special shoutout to Khi, Plat, Krystof/Dhale FFXIV God, Keklyz, Vexthizzface, Toph, Smulch, Vinny,  Ayra, Hildegard Sprigglespruxx, Not Reliuna, Gabe, Ruin/Retal, youtube.com/bobrosslol, Poppy, Thelfx, Deprive, Splatted-o, Bubbez, Rambojohnny.

#3929437 The Dannycarey innocence thread

Posted Veev on 21 August 2013 - 03:22 AM

A) Zilea doesn't speak for anyone but himself, including his teammates.  Most people know this by now, but just reinforcing it.

B) Monk healing should probably be looked at.  I realize that it's not the most wildly popular class or anything, but the sheer amount of healing output that it has is a bit ridiculous.  I'm all in favor of a nerf to healing output and a buff to other areas.  No class should have a niche of just doing infinite healing until they're OOM.  No amount of CC or damage ever seems to be enough to kill something on a monk's team until they finally OOM.

C) I laugh at all the people who act like jungle cleave should never lose a game.  That's why TR ladder is dominated by jungle... oh wait, we're the only one on there, and the comp has many well-known counters (some harder than others).  Wizards, in general, are not something that any paladin-jungle wants to see.  I realize the average IQ of AJ posters has dropped considerably over the years, but some people seem truly delusional.

D) GG's.
