#4394456 6.1 Demo Warlocks

Posted Cakesz on Yesterday, 04:14 PM

I don't get it guys.

You've all played the game for a long time now, why do you still harbour the hope that each patch and expansion will not be worse than the next.

Have you guys really not learned this yet?

Blizzard make an in-house competition every patch to see who can come up with the most retarded ideas to add into the patch, and every new patch people make the same type of threads, "this is retarded wtf?".

Do you all live under the delusion that Blizzard are going to actually make PvP better somehow? How many chances are you going to give them? xD

#4393394 Saving Grace's "reduced pvp effectiveness" bugged?

Posted Redefined on 26 February 2015 - 05:14 PM

I do not like changes like this one (casted to non-casted), but in the same regard, Priests needed something like this to compete with other healers and to survive melee tunneling.

I see the problem, however, as a bigger picture. I believe that the real issue at hand is stacking melee interrupts and their immense control/damage combination.

The reason why Wrath was so successful, imho, was of course - no class homogenization. Warriors were kiteable, but had immense damage once they reached a target and had mediocre control. Now, in WoD, Warriors have all 3. They have Mass Spell Reflect, a 30s Kidney Shot, very short CD Bladestorm immunity, more uptime than before - all while maintaining their heavy pressure via strong, constant damage.

Before, a class brought one out of three (3 being an example, not the absolute cap for what a class brings) or even 2/3 of strong aspects for a PvP spec/class. Now though, it seems that most successful PvP classes & specs offer all 3. When you stack this melee with another, it causes a disruption in the balance. Healers have to resort to instant mechanics and CD-escapes as their only method of survival. In the past, healers would rely on juking (which was entirely possible) to top themselves or for their team-mates to peel for them. Currently, they can be peeled - but only for a short while until their gap closer is up again or their healer dispels them (all healers can, x2 dispel glyphs).

I do not know what the fix is, nor am I offering one.

I personally always love playing against melee/caster/healer comps, no matter what classes are plugged in there. The game is much more enjoyable that way, from my perspective.

In conclusion, this change for Priests was needed even though the mechanic isn't beneficial to the PvP game. While Druids are obviously still too strong, I think the real issue lies in melee stacking/having "too much" and no differentiations between classes.

#4387586 Hey Datacus

Posted Korzul on 14 February 2015 - 10:35 PM

Lets break this down:

Game 1 - Datacus' team wins, ooms the fuck out of team balamos' healers and caps ww. Nothing said to admins.
Game 2 - Deepwind Gorge, bailamos' team wins convincingly.
Game 3 - Hey Q Gob Abn's vent drops offline instantly as the game starts, they start losing pretty quickly and tell the admins they have no comms + show them a vod of what happened. Admins say they'll replay it because comms went offline within the 1st minute etc.
Bailamos bitches on his stream that "no player went offline" so they shouldn't have to replay, admins say they should.
Bailamos says wizk lost connection in one of the previous games (game 1?) and was away for 2 mins (actually wouldn't have made a difference to the outcome) 10 mins later admins give the win to bailamos' team but say no more offlines will be tolerated.
Game 4 - Datacus' team is winning, 2 eots flags up. Vamps is a fucking champ effectively solo healing mid for extended periods of time. Looks like it's in the bag when vamps dies..... vamps doesn't res for nearly 3 mins... vamps is offline, never gets back on. In the next 5 mins team bailamos caps 2 flags and it ends a draw.
Game 5 - Replaying EoTS due to the tie, datacus's team ninja a flag, team bailamos get one back but datacus' team 3 man invades a base and wins.
Game 6 - SIlvershard Mines. Bailamos' team is wrecking team fights but losing carts and thus down a lot of points, 5-10 mins in they all leave because someone on their team dc's. Admins say they'll replay even though they said earlier that they wouldn't, mainly because maldiva was streaming without a delay for datacus' team which is against the rules.
Game 7 - Bailamos' team take it by 7 points after a very close game.

In short - Trying to troll datacus is pretty dumb, bailamos acted like a spoilt brat on his stream for the entire night and pretty much only got the win due to maldiva not knowing the streaming rules.

Some of the games were fun to watch, it'll never take off though because there's fucking ZERO sportsmanship from any of the RBG community and whilst there's no proof any of the dc's were players/servers getting hit offline past actions have destroyed any chance of giving people the benefit of the doubt.

Posted Reesezpiecez on 02 February 2015 - 06:53 PM

I'm not saying RDruids are or aren't too strong, but comparing abilities in a vacuum like this never turns out well, especially when you present all tools as if they're equal. For instance, both cyclone and root have a cast time that you didn't present, does that make it a fair balancing mechanism? I'm not going to say, but just things to think about.

This site is supposed to be a think-tank for the best players in World of Warcraft.

1. Start topic of one of the major long-term issues in the game
2. Propose a solution which would work with a couple of tweeks
3. Get this:


Get a grip, really.

Because anyone can write 'erm make gcd lower' doesn't provide anything more or less, doesn't provide a fix for energy based classes, or classes that generate energy through auto attacks and things, doesn't comment on how this affects stats like haste, or if gcd's would continue to scale with it

the topic is worthless, vague comments like 'lower gcd'

lowering the gcd doesn't fix any problems, arena is far from slow, and a lower gcd dooesn't mean higher skillcap. because you're pressing things more doesn't mean things are harder, if i had to play guitar hero sequences to make a mortal strike work the game would have a higher skill cap by your logic, but it would be so dumb (someone wrote a better anaolgy in a different thread but i can't find it to credit them)

lolflay continues to make topics on how to balance a game he doesn't play to get back to a time he did, fixing the game is simple, and blizzard are doing well to address it by buffing and nerfing with regular patches, oh and is it cool to call someone a rivalduelist when the last time you got glad was maybe 2011? Or are you still passing off garx's hunters as your own titles through aj kettu?

inb4 haha i am kettu master troll u where just trolld
