#4306350 Hunter POM Sheep

Posted Lightningx on Yesterday, 12:24 AM

Why do hunters have a 12 seconds POM sheep?

Mages had a 1.5m POM sheep and it was deemed too OP and removed from the game

???

most people with a problem with boosting are too shit / too unknown to get regular boosts. Hence why they don't like it, people want what they can't have. Most players dont give two shits about whether or not duelist jimmy gets his title cause some big bad r1 player beat him one game at 2400 mmr :(

Oh. My. Fucking. God.

The moment a person actually starts to tolerate you and maybe think that you'll turn out alright in the end, you write shit like this. You're a lost fucking cause, aren't you ? Take it from someone who did more boosting than you've had chance to during your little Ele Shaman escapade - if you're doing it, at least don't be a dick about it. You can't honestly believe boosting is good for this game ?


Here's a personality trait I had before. I used to be extremely hostile towards some players ( who I guess you could call "new kids on the block" ) who got Gladiator/R1 in the past, mostly because I didn't deem them worthy enough ( If I'm > them, why did they get reward >= mine ? )

But even though I was bitter towards them, I've ACCEPTED them. And do you know why ? BECAUSE those players are what keeps ARENA alive.


We have two players, Bob and Murray.

Bob is a guy with 3000 arena games in this season, Bob is a solid Duelist, but he might have a shot at Gladiator in 1000ish more games.

Murray likes chasing tail more than playing arena, but Murray wants Gladiator. Murray decides to buy Gladiator.

Bob gets at the exact rating the cutoff is at. Murray's boost knocks Bob out. Murray walks around with the title, while Bob, a legitimate player who probably would've continued playing arena if not for scumbags, is left in dirt.


Sure, Bob can try next season, and he probably will, but he's been fucked out of a title he worked really hard for, while on another hand, Murray just got his Glad achievement, title and mount, and will probably never participate in arena again at all.




TL;DR - anyone who supports boosting in any way is fucking retarded.  Timeline of events :

- R1/Gladiator means something, is a prestigious thing to acquire in this game.

- more people start playing arena

- Gladiator cutoffs lower themselves each season ( not proportional to skill )

- morons start sharing R1 titles ( while claiming they don't care about them, interestingly enough they care about them so much they're willing to scout 24/7 and play hard to land at share rating )

- at one point, old, better players start separating themselves from new players ( community divided )

- new players' entry into highrated PvP scene becomes very hard

- boosting starts being a regular thing

- cheating becomes a regular thing

- DDOSing becomes a regular thing

- PvP quality continously declines

- "who gives a shit about this game omfg, new players suck, boosting cheating etc"



You're all fucking hypocrites, and more importantly, morons. Saying you give a shit about a pixelated title doesn't make you less of a person, and taking MASSIVE shits on the thing you love playing for the sake of "reputation" is basically taking shits on yourself. "Yeah man, my hobby totally blows, I'd rather eat hot horse shit than do it, but I'm still doing it". Bunch of imbeciles.

Unsurprising, as they are currently the most broken healer on live too, and have been for awhile.
being the best when played at skillcap doesn't mean they're broken, shamans are the most "broken" by a landslide. any moron
can log on one of those and succeed


#4210858 ESL/BLIZZARD SCANDAL

Posted Capstone on 18 September 2014 - 02:43 AM

i don't know why everyone is so upset about wizk having a mystery mage come play for him in the tournament, at least there were 3 actual human beings playing on his team

just saw this on the front page of honorbuddy's website :confused:

#4209841 ESL/BLIZZARD SCANDAL

Posted Capstone on 17 September 2014 - 03:11 PM

i'd just like to point out some things that are actually wrong with the tournament instead of this random bashing

let's compare the routes some teams had to take to the tournament

Posted Image

so, for the HLS to qualify, they had to play mostly against teams that either qualified for the tournament or were capable, and the teams they played against had already gone through a tough bracket

Posted Image

i don't mean to bash this god comp, it's not that they're not good - but they played against my mom. i didn't even know she signed up

even on the back end of the bracket, they are queuing into teams that they have a favorable matchup against

let's shift focus to the 3 amigos, whose place in the tournament is being questioned in this thread:

Posted Image

Posted Image

they miss the tournament by a last round loss to a team that gives them a quite unfavorable matchup, despite most of the wizards qualified being inept against MLS

Posted Image

here's a screenshot of the FRONT end of the loser's bracket. thank god my mom didn't have to play in this bracket or she would have had to make a hunter just to compete

what's the important part of all of this? WoW tournaments are unlike other tournaments - the strengths and weaknesses of some teams are much more significant than in other games/sports. there are unfavorable conditions and matchups in almost any game, but not anywhere near as significant as they are in WoW

for qualifying purposes, a strict elimination bracket is potentially the worst way to determine which teams should enter a tournament

the ladder is decent at sorting this out, although as we have seen on live and on the TR, it's susceptible to wintrade and selective queuing

a better solution would probably be round robin or any other tournament format other than the ones that have been presented. this idea has been proposed before, but for some reason we are still playing blizzcon in the patch of a future expansion and qualifying teams based on who can wintrade better, knows a dev, or plays against my mom in a tournament bracket

#4156517 In-game NPCs named after PvPers

Posted Capstone on 26 June 2014 - 11:46 PM

holinka tweeted about another few coming on twitter, apparently Jahmilli is getting one where he follows you around in the starting zone if you make a shaman and complains at you until you are level 10

this feature not needed for hunters, because i am already doing that on live

glink...

theres a reason you went from 2k as a rogue to 2750+ and r1 as a hunter

i think your class has a lot to do with it


#4128875 Soul Swap

Posted Tekkys on 27 May 2014 - 05:50 PM

Just a thread made out of curiosity regarding soul swap; do other locks actually enjoy this ability/do you think it's healthy for the game?

I think currently, with the amount of interrupts in the game, soul swap is more of a necessary evil than anything. However, with WoD toning down cc and interrupts in general, i feel like soul swap needs to go or be toned down. If it is going to be dealt with then ignore this, i just havent seen anything related to it.

Personally, i really don't like soul swap, at least in it's current state. It not only rewards people for having a mind-numbing play style, but it just makes interrupts on fears or MG all the more valuable and coveted when you barely cast UA some games. Just curious to see what other people think about the ability as a whole, and the implications for WoD.

Hey, imagine what a great fucking tournament it'd be if they banned ALL shamans...

Food for thought.
