#4418742 The State of the Game

Posted Damaskinos on 05 May 2015 - 04:25 PM

I see what he writes about CC breakers. "DK too many defensives [WHAT?]/trinkets"
But like everyone else from the old guard, he forgets 15 sec CD Mage blink breaking the most potent CC: Stun!
So a class with the poor CC and 0 mobility has: a 2 min fearbreaker, a 3 minutes stun breaker (tied to one of its 2 defensive CDs), and a second trinket. Wow!

I see him mentioning Asphyxiate and Stormbolt (no mention of rogue stuns, the same I am missing always, when people complain here about stuns. They always forget Rogues!). No mention of Mage Deep Freeze. And spamable CC doesnt really seem to be a problem for this guy (only when it is instant). He talks about the CD on Dispel, but CCed healers cannot dispell.

I see what he writes about balance: "The problem with the game is not balance".
And then he is listing DKs as last with 2 combos... After lining out all the "problems" that DKs bring to the game above.

If that's not bitching bias...

Just my 2 cents...
Have fun "fixing" the game

#4418157 The State of the Game

the illusion that the community can make this game better to the extent that it will resemble its former glory is taxing

i saw this post 7 years ago. i might have made it back then

eventually, after being drowned in the futility of optimism that constructive feedback will effect meaningful change, we all crash to the reality that you cannot do anything to make this game better. after your 902nd tweet to holinka or post on your class forums detailing the ways the class could be changed to be more rewarding to everyone playing it and interactive with others, you become desensitized to the obvious neglect of your positive ideas

communities better than ours have tried to improve their decaying interest when it was out of their control and watched it struggle due to neglect. ultimately, we all have the same revelation, which is that the fate of this game is not in our hands

this game was great when blizzard made it great, and lost steam when blizzard neglected it. we had a minimal effect on either. as a matter of fact, if you think the community is shit now, understand that most of the visible community is relatively mature. you should have seen it in vanilla when we were all 16 year old shitheads. it wasn't our attitude that made the game good

it's a great sentiment. i encourage everyone to go post your ideas in that thread. i don't think it'll have a significant long term positive impact, and if you have been playing this game as long as i have, neither do you


#4416417 @GCDTV - an idea?

Posted Lightningx on 29 April 2015 - 04:22 AM

I would also like to suggest that you implement some sort of picks and banning system or flat out ban to certain comps.

In a tournament where money is involved people will always be seeking any edge they can to win. This means playing the best possible comp. It is already a trend in the tournaments (and I believe it will increase as it gets more popular and prize pools go up) that people are playing only FOTM setups such as RMD/godcomp/turbo.

while queueing these comps is fine I understand that people want to win. But it isn't very exciting for viewers to watch games between these setups and neither is it fun to play against them and be completely out-matched most of the time.

I mean, it's just my personal idea/opinion. But sometimes i find it hard to watch these tournaments because RMD vs turbo vs godcomp or any variation of those is incredibly boring to watch and makes me want to gouge my eyes out. Whenever there's underdog comps/setups it's always 100x more exciting because im there on the edge of my seat wanting that destruction warlock (or whatever comp it is) team to win!

Thank you guys so much for this thread! Lots of really cool ideas. I really like the idea Saori had and I think it offers a lot of potential to really hype things up. We have already entertained the idea of having a EU vs US Tournament, but the biggest fear we have is the latency advantage / disadvantages. Ensuring our tournaments stay fair and competitive are extremely important to us.

GCDTV Lan Tournaments

I think that would be a great idea, and at the end of each 'gcdtv season' the top x teams from both eu and us could compete in an additional tournament

We want to make this ^ happen/

Though like everything this is great it is going to take some time and a shit ton of effort.


Quote

Didn't they mention in the last post that they wanted the tournament to be a league that continues for longer periods of time? Such as a tournament each week, but how you perform in each tournament also effects your standings on an ongoing league table.




All I can really say is that we will be announcing some big news very soon. :D

the only difference between a 2900 dk and a 2600 one is how much damage they do

I can assure you that the damage and how they (dks) manage to survive is a real difference between dk's, even if they only have damage (The thing that a combat rogue/war/feral can bring better and easier). Especially with the actual meta-game (mages everywhere+hpal/druid and combat rogue) where all their damage is reduced by passive thing or because they can't reach a "backpedalling" mages.

Dk are the last class where damage is the difference between 2 of them.

LSD2 with PvE gear was just awful to face. You had to deal with legendary staff or rathrak (the one-hand with nature dot damage), AND the shadowbolt trinket. Moonkin had their mushroom too, it was sooo fun to use, cyclone, 3 mushroom on solar buff, and if you had a Starsurge proc, wrath cast+starsurge+mushroom *Boom*

Edit : Oh, and how they use their offensive dispel, even if being dispelled by a dk is the most frustrative thing.
And it's the main problem with dk's, as they bring "only" damage to a team, they are either completly overpowered, or just "meh, let's take [insert any other melee]".

They were really good at AoE, but now, a warrior is better, and with a MS effect.

Bring back Desecration please.

My favourite expansion of all time was cata and the best seasons were in my opinion 7 and 11. Mop introduced new mechanics which were absolutely dogshit. Season 12 was full of bugs i.e. bm hunters. Season 13/14/15 were all full of shit but atleast the queues were good. Do I need to mention WoD? Most boring expansion ever, removed half of my keybinds introduced dogshit mechanics, made speccs and classes that actually required skill absolute braindead mongo so 2,2 cata players like whaazz could get their 2700 achievement.

Well when someone buys their account and then talks shit on "mongo
2200 plays getting 2700" it's pretty sad.  It's the same feeling as seeing trust fund babies calling poor people lazy on Facebook.  They shouldn't speak.

I had a lot of fun in cata/mop, WoD is  meh. Arena I can't play because its too slow and easy. The comp rdruids are good in all  feel really dumb compared to last season. Rbg's are ok but nothing special. It's basically last season for RBG's, all the dot/aoe classes run supreme atm: Aff/boom/spriest ofc. Rdruid is actually retarded to play atm because you're forced to play bear form since thats the only way you can survive a stun but yeah this expansion sucks but I'm still playing because of friends.

200 points below glad.... Arena too easy.  Must not be easy enough.  I understand if you don't like the season a lot of people don't but don't say it's because it's too easy...  But then again you are datacus so of course where would the fun be if you didn't say something retarded.

Balance you are now and have always been the hero these forums deserve. s1 was insane fire mage pom pyro could 1 shot. if your guild was in karazhan it was like being an s5 DK. there wasn't fluid communication amongst all bgs so it was so hard for people to qq because no one had any idea what was even going on.

s2 s3 and s4 all had their individual problems but things got better as it went on for the most part.

This game is about the people you play with and a fun way to pass the time. obviously winning and balance makes things more fun, but from what i've found over the years if you play with people you wouldnt hang out with rl just for slightly better ratings than this game can be very horrible.

if you q with ppl you like, the sessions end up being so much better.

tl:dr

I'd rather get glad with buds than get r1 with xaryu

so idk if you have noticed or not but for the last month or longer the front page of AJ has literally only been specific class questions or bitch threads about the game and for me that is not why i go on AJ.

Spoiler

i like the bigmoran posts, the xmog posts, the selfie posts, the WoW pvp video posts, the tourny posts, the glad mount posts, and other posts like that.




so i made this post, not a bitch post but something different for once.


please look at my beautiful graph and take note of which seasons have the big red arrow next to them.

they are all the first season of a new expansion, OP Dks, OP feral bleeds, OP warriors, and then what we currently have.

as the season for that expansion go on, the graph generally goes up, season 8 RMP i heard was good, BUT shadowmourne was bad, so it got a ok/fun rating. and season 11 was only OK because of PvE gear as well, a few exceptions.


so try to not focus on the bad but the good, funny moments in streams, tournys, transmogs, selfies, the important stuff because in a while im going to bet that this game will be good, but people wont admit it till the next expansion.

thx 4 ur time,
