#4091350 Where have all the rogues gone?

Posted KPul on 03 April 2014 - 01:39 PM

Rogues aren't fun anymore to play.    I know when the stars align i can put out ridiculous damage but when it comes to arenas in order to be successful as a rogue it demands so much synergy to be successful.  Its to the point that it's exhausting to get a win even vs the worst teams.

Also, I've been saying it for a long time but whenever you hit seasons where Hunters or Ferals are the most played class you'll see less and less of rogues playing.    I know when I enter an arena and I see a team make a gauntlet with flares and AoE spam in a tight corner to prevent the rogue opener I laugh.    It makes rogue openers inconsistent and its often unreliable to have a good opener strategy when there are so many targetable AoEs to put a rogue's team in combat.

Rogue gameplay is second nature for me and I'm sure its the same for plenty of other players who have been playing since BC/Wrath.  I am constantly asked how to do simple things like "how to open for good burst" and it leads me to believe that rogue gameplay, in order to be successful, needs to take advantage of every global properly otherwise they will fail immensely and thats too much of a learning curve for a new player. Regardless of how much damage rogues can potentially do I think they have the biggest gap between a new player and a skill capped player.    The reason there are so few rogues playing is because its exhausting and requires so much setup to win against teams that are hundreds of MMR lower than you compared to other classes. The gameplay is stale and easily countered.  The entirety of an arena match as a rogue is determined in the first 20 seconds of an arena and thats not fun / too hard to recover from a mistake.  I think the biggest reason rogue population is so low is because rogues look fun on paper/stream but they immediately turn a player away when they see how much setup it takes vs playing another class to actually be successful.

#4077700 An Arena Junkies Cooperative Initiative

Posted Regent on 12 March 2014 - 07:50 PM

Life Story: Earlier today I was getting some lunch and overheard a group of people loudly complaining about Obamacare and how it was apparently ruining the country. After a few moments, one of the guys who had been quiet said something like, "You all sit here and complain about it, yet you offer no alternative, you complain instead of trying to offer solutions or start real discussions." This got me thinking, and while I ate my burrito, I realized that this could describe the WoW community pretty well (albeit not exactly.) I tried to think of ways we could improve and came up with this idea.

Problem: High rated WoW players are frustrated with imbalances in gameplay, but tend to complain aimlessly instead of working together to provide a strong argument. Blizzard doesn't have a good pipeline through which to communicate with the experienced arena community. While Holinka does have an active twitter, the platform is severely limited in length and can be confusing to use.

Proposal: Every week, starting on monday, a thread will be put up where players can go and post questions or points of discussion. On Wednesday, the top posts from that thread will be put into a new thread with a poll. The AJ community will then vote the top 5 questions/discussion points.

We approach holinka (some mods here know his personal contact info possibly?) and ask for him to commit to answering the 5 questions every week sometime between friday and sunday. Once he answers, the Q&A will be posted to the news feed on the front page of AJ. Then on monday the process starts over.

The Goal: To generate better discussion of the game, while limiting ourselves to the things we find most pressing. To better the relationship between players and developer(s). Reduce the general complaining seen on Arena Junkies (we are all guilty of this.) Five questions a week is not a large commitment, but would be very helpful in increasing the dialogue.

If anyone has suggestions on how to improve the idea, let me know!

It's hilarious how everyone is hating on LSD, both here and on Twitch chat, yet the DK/hunter and hunter/rogue teams were more than aids compared to LSD showcased on this tourney. Geez

How so? Aids isn't very descriptive.. I think people hate on LSD because it's so boring to watch/play.

It's disappointing and shameful for anyone that does shady stuff but whether he has done anything like that or not, at least he has proven that he's a top warrior in tourneys and on stream.
