#4533906 You can do or become anyone or anything you want, yay or nay?

Posted Twaenkz on 04 November 2015 - 11:12 PM

Hi back in this thread

My passion drove me to attempt to work within Esports, regarding mostly league of legends, so I took yall peepz advice and chose 1 thing I want to do and it being esports I thought how can I get out there... first off I came to the conclusion Its too late for me to get in the competitive scene, even if I took the coming year to develop and then tryout for teams, Idk if it would be long enough time to develop and/or I would be too old for this shit, Id be 23 and lets be real the scene is based around 18-22 max atm, with a few older good players.
So me playing was put on hold , to perhaps stream in the future. So I thought what else could I do, Im pretty good at league, I have the experience of High Elo, Ive wasted shit ton of time learning everything about the game and I basically understand every aspect of competitive play. So Coaching would be ideal perhaps? But would I be able to coach? Its easier to teach yourself then others, I told myself.
Sweden is very supportive of Esports regarding media tv etc and now schools are even opening Esports colleges. Recently one in my area, So I contacted them telling them I could work for free just to be able to do something in my spare time and develop this skill.
I was called into an interview last week , months after the email.. I thought I was going to work for free , turns out they want to hire me to let me develop as a coach, but also because the teacher of the college knew me from back when I went to that college.

TL;DR. Im getting paid by the Swedish government (the school system)  to teach 16 year old prodigy's league of legends without having any former experience of coaching or a teaching degree , just because Im good at league and the teacher knew me from back in the day. The job is full time and pays the exact same as if I was a real teacher with a degree from uni. Hopefully I can develop more coaching skills and perhaps you peepz will see me in the pro scene if my dreamzzz come true.

mfw I got the job : https://vid.me/6iUh

#4533306 Blizzard will No Longer report sub number

Posted Voksen on 03 November 2015 - 07:16 PM

What a scum company they've become.  Time for rant.

The sub numbers were always exaggerated, but shareholders liked seeing them.  As they slip, its probably the shareholders who don't want to see them, realizing the demoralizing effect it has on the remaining playerbase.  

So what sort of "better indicators" are they going to report?  "15743 stones of jordan sold to vendors" ?  "5,914 dungeon instances spawned per week" ?  "17,136 pet battles won last month" ?

Runaway anti-hype is runaway.  I'm expecting Legion xpack followed closely by another small xpack to create a "double pump effect" - basically milking the temporary sub increase following an xpack over and over in short succession until even that path for revenue is dried up.

p.s. Overwatch is the biggest IP rip-off in years.  (hint:  firefall, global agenda, etc.).  Some of us who tried to mention this got banned/squelched.  Those games have been around since 2009 with almost zero coverage.  But when Blizz does Overwatch its suddenly cool and everyone goes ape shit for it.  What a fucking joke gaming culture has become.  Can't wait for the asians to take over your shit cause #passified.

Come at me.

In the contrast, why are people so reluctant to post a link to their Facebook? It's just a social networking site, for a simple reason... to socialize. Are people THAT reliant on their Facebook page that it is kept that big of a secret as your ID, and in irony, you post RL pictures here.

I check Facebook frequently for any updates regarding the stuff I wanna know about, or to see if any friends left a message or something.

It's not even my real name since I never took Facebook seriously. It's a wordplay of "Snejk" (the way you pronounce snake, as everyone irl calls me snake as well, even colleagues at work) and Zmiuga is two words in reverse order, namely the first one which means "take it" (with a reference to your penis) made famous by ex-Yugoslavian comedy show.

So yeah ^^

oh fuck me this happened

#4522173 If you beta'd WoD you let us down.

To the people who beta tested WoD:

You fucking suck and let many people down.  You're basically the last line of defense against the tyranny of Holinka and his team.  Scores of people would have loved your job and/or taken it seriously.  Many followed you from the sidelines as people made videos, promoted how good WoD was going to be, and spammed how good of a design it was going to be.  omfg the hype was so real.

Most (not all, obv) beta testers need to owe up to this.  You didn't do enough.  Yes, the beta fixed a lot of bugs (although these days most bugs are caught via proper software engineering and validation.  But it didn't come close to having an effect on pushing good changes into WoD.

I blame the types of people selected for beta testing.  After you rule out the random kids selected for hardware testing reasons, you're left with a ton of people who didn't commit to improving the game via outcry, feedback, and distancing themselves from the hand that feeds them.

If you beta tested WoD you probably shouldn't be allowed to beta test Legion.
do you work at blizzard?  do you know what kind of feedback beta testers provided?  can you account for the testing done by every WoD beta player (or any WoD beta player)?  or do you know none of these things, and are totally just speculating?  you make generalizations about every tester, but i find it difficult to believe you can even account for the average tester.  i'd be surprised if you could account for more than five

it sounds like you have no idea what feedback anyone provided and are just complaining, which is strange, because in an even longer point you acknowledge the fact that blizzard is so shit that even with all of the resources any company can reasonably expect they cannot even keep their flagship game from regressing

there was nothing any number of beta testers could have done to save this shit.  there is no amount of constructive feedback any number of players or communities could give this shit company to make them effect any positive change.  until there are no players left on your favorite, home server, they will continue to squeeze the life out of this game, disregarding any legitimate opinion as the uninformed wishes of a simple user.  holinka will make a tweet, in an attempt to channel the wit of a second grade Capstone, of how an arenajunkie like yourself will just complain about anything, self-assured that your perspective is inferior; one of someone who has never designed games. how could you possibly know better than he?  i'll have you know holinka has been designing shit games for 19 years

i have beta tested for blizzard before.  i reported a bunch of bugged shit and ridiculous abilities.  a quest in sholazar basin which did not function properly (which i still fucking think is bugged).  i was earnest in my attempts to improve the game.  you did not have to be a genius to understand that death knights were as absolutely fucked as shit could be.  when the game came out, i noticed, one by one, they had all made it to live.  i solo'd a wing of 25-player Naxxramas and reported the bug.  in return, i got banned for three days, and they didn't even fix the shit until some guy made a video of it on warcraftmovies

trying to be constructive toward this company is embarrassing.  i would feel like an idiot going to the WoW forums to post ideas to improve the game, because believing in my ability to have a positive influence on the design of this game would be an indication of inability to learn from past mistakes.  even now, i cringe at the naivete of mop players that believe things will get better

the next expansion could be good, but most likely, it will just be shit.  people will start coming out of the woodwork talking about cool shit they have seen and how it looks like there could be some really positive changes, but it will come out and be shit.  and you know what else?  most of us will play it for a while, just to be sure that it is shit, like we didn't already know.  those of us who enjoy shit the most will continue to play it, complaining the entire time that it is shit, talking about how even the last iteration of shit was slightly less shit than the shit we have now, and looking forward to what might come with the next cycle of shit.  there's no escaping it, though.  this game, and everyone in its orbit, is doomed to a destiny of experienced-varied shit, and no beta testing will ever save that
