#3866206 Teamates getting discouraged too easily.

Posted Guest on 24 March 2013 - 02:05 PM

First of all, I feel like telling him that him and his teammates should not care about rating and just play for fun is not helpful. Everybody wants to feel like they're doing well and being competitive and it takes a very special mindset to not care at all about your rating and how successful your team is. If they care, it's going to be really hard to stop them from caring. I think having a goal is a good thing, but it takes motivation to get to that goal.

Throughout the years I've been asked questions from players about how to improve and what they should be doing. Just by the wording I can detect how motivated they actually are. There are clear signs that someone has hit a wall they refuse to try to break down. For instance, I've seen tons of questions worded like this: (this was a question I received last week)

"yo talb ;d we playing same comp as u atm iam full t2 on my sp but mates are just t1 upgraded so we have hit a 2k wall we think is due to everyone having t2 atm!! esp vs KFC (still) and also alot of trouble vs shadowcleave (dk affi) how u think we can counter these or u think its just a gear problem we aint losing that much to skill imo but say KFC on zoo sham dies even if i root all pets lol and vs dk affi he just aint dispelling enough imo but cant tell him this any help would be great man keep up the good work ill be donating when i get payed next week :D"

I replied with this.

"I would first try to change your perception of the situation. Ignore the fact that you guys are missing tier 2 weapons because you'll end up scapegoating yourselves with that instead of looking for ways to improve. Also, try to look mostly at what you could be doing better instead of your partners. Blame game doesn't help you get any higher! You can try going body and soul to help your shaman escape if he's being tunneled. Maybe it's worth using double death grip on the warrior when he's connecting so that he has no way of getting back. If you are ever stabalized vs the comp (aka you just used a major cooldown or they ran out of pressure) you need to make a swap to the healer with asphyx into silence. Land that a couple times and you'll win. DKLS I would watch our vods against that comp that we played yesterday."

Basically, unmotivated players immediately look towards disadvantages they have when they lose instead of looking into what they could have done better themselves. Try to get your teammates out of the disadvantaged mindset and more into the improving their own play mindset. If players are not on the same level of motivation as you or have short-winded motivation then it's time to look for new partners. I think motivation is much more of a factor in finding proper teammates than experience is.

Try to get them not to look at your own team's rating OR the enemy team's rating during queue sessions.
It would probably help them to concentrate more on the actual game and make it more enjoyable for them, plus it's less stressful when you don't care/look at ratings.  Whatever you can do to take their minds off of rating and keep things light and fun.

In the end though it's up to them whether they get stressed out and rage/emo, or choose to have fun and learn from games instead.

step 1 shoot sperm at paladin
step 2 throw swiftly orb
step 3 send him to the ice age with a deep freeze and unleash your wizard powers with ice lances and instant swifty bolts
step 4 (the hardest part) if u are truly skilled the wizards of azeroth will empower you and you will be able to smuggle the poor pally with a blanket proceeding to his death

You forgot the bit where you alter the space time continuum and rewrite time before the Paladins eyes, allowing you to instantly cast two destructive spells with your presence of mind.


#3853722 Expected class representation on Gladiator titles

Posted Snuggli on 26 February 2013 - 02:29 PM

I'm really happy for all the underdog warriors getting glad after being underpowered for all of Cata, all of these Warriors are obviously the most skilled players and now the game is finally perfectly balanced the Warrior community can prove how much better they are at the game than the rest of the playerbase.


#3850046 Rogue GCD < 1 second?

Posted WildeHilde on 16 February 2013 - 08:43 PM

After several tests today I think the global cooldown of rogue abilities on live is a bit less than 1 seconds, more around 0,75 seconds. I tested this for Cheap Shot / Rupture and Ambush / Backstab. It might be lag or something but I have the rupture debuff around 0,77 seconds after the Cheap Shot debuff on video.

Did anyone else notice something similar?
