#4211947 How I got screwed out of the tournament

It's difficult to be a teammate that only looks at each game as a way to improve themselves or to improve your team strategy. It took me a long time as a player to get better at this as I used to rage at my teammates for playing badly when a game was their fault. Statements made that let somebody know the game was their fault, even if indirect, do nothing but hurt your team.
"idk why you trinketed that fear"
"you die without blocking every time dude"
"I played with so and so and they did this" (I used to do this so much.)
These comments never help, so if you want to become a part of a long-lasting team you will learn to say more helpful things to your teammates.

If your teammate is too full of themselves to think they had no fault in the game, then it's time to find somebody else to play with or try to set them straight. The game should never be lost with "I don't know I feel like I played that perfect on my end. I mean I did the most damage, most CC, etc." Sure even if you think you played perfect there's no reason to mention this to dishearten your team.

I was in a situation with Novoz a long time ago where we felt forced to replace Drmayonaise in Season 8 before regionals. He was getting mad every single game we lost to RLS which was a near impossible matchup for us that lasted several minutes. He's changed a lot as a person since that time thankfully and I still play with him from time to time. I'm sure Dannycarey knows his druid isn't the best just like anyone knows that their alt isn't the greatest. It's not like I log onto Starbadar and convince myself that I'm the world's greatest mage. This whole situation with Dannycarey's replacement makes it seem like they don't care about him at all. I know for a fact that he is one of the best healer monks in the game and it's not like he rages at his teammates or doesn't talk about what's going on. I know Sharpstorm is a great Monk too and probably an equal replacement, but ditching your Blizzcon healer from last year at moments notice is simply not cool.

I would appreciate if you didn't make long wided posts directed at my team without knowing anything about the situation. Dannycareys original post is bias, diliberatly leaves out facts and the entire backstory in an attempt to gain sympathy from the readers. Although your post may give good advice for some, it doesn't apply to this situation at all. Anyone who plays with me knows I look at my own mistakes prior to anyone elses. After playing a year and a half with him this was not an easy decision that we made on the spot. The decision had nothing to do with his skill or ability to play his alts, and that's all the detail I'm going to go into. We're keeping this drama out of the spotlight for his own sake and aparently he doesn't realize that.

For the 9th/10th placement matches no special treatment was given. Look at the brackets: http://www.nationale...cider/rankings/

Blizzard clearly stated they were doing placement for the 9th-12th spots.

If Supatease beat 3 amigos or fury turbo dream beat us they would be fighting for the regionals spot, not us. Yes the tournament was unfair for a number of reasons but if either team had lost one round sooner we would not be in a position to go.

Don't really understand all the people trying to burn kisz's team at the stake all of the sudden. Imo the important thing isn't really whether they cheated or not, which i doubt that they did, but more the fact that they legitimately earned the title regardless.They farmed each team they q'd into on the final night for their rating, one of which consisted of good, well-known players who play well together and were actually real competition, which is more than can be said for most people who get r1 nowadays.

Also, if it isn't enough to believe kisz on what he "said" happened just because he said it did, Nuvoz(who was competing for r1 agaisnt kisz) wrote a blog titled "Season 13: I want Jahmilli's dick" on everything that happened in 5s on the last night and why he himself thought that kisz's team deserved and earned the title.

It's true, that was my original title. PvP live made me change it :(

I consider it a great irony that we are to automatically presume this team's innocence because Kisz is a nice guy, they're Korean, or because Azael titles this thread, "The Truth" followed by an oddly placed semi-colon. I wish to have this noted on a similar topic concerning the presumption of guilt or innocence: Dannycarey is also a nice guy, he's an extremely talented and methodical player, and, he's going to Blizzcon because of it. And yet, I recall watching Azael indict him on stream, without proof, decrying Dannycarey as a, "no-name shitter that cheats". Thus, I challenge Azael and co. to have the decency to tweet, Skype, stream to clear the name of Dannycarey with the same type of publicity (as displayed here) with which they besmirched it.

Can we get a response to this or is he just going to dodge?

#3939071 The Crowd Chose You

Any way you change it it's going to benefit certain comps over other ones. In the current game a 15 min timer is too short as sad as that is. Its hard to play with the current system and not except to reach the timer thus causing you use cooldowns earlier than you should.

IMO a stacking system of some sort that STARTS at 15 mins would be the best option but again each different debuff would benefit different teams. Maybe a mix of both? "5% more damage / 5% less healing every 2 minutes past 15 minutes?

In my experience with good healers on both teams health doesn't really hover low and certain games can be extremely boring. This isn't wizard match's either like you might assume. Aff lock/Resto shama/x in particular has a tendency to make games painfully boring due to the turtleish playstyle of both. Affliction locks literally don't have a filler spell other than fear, they instant dots and  mash their fear key into every target in their line of sight (no I'm not exaggerating, if you're not doing that you're playing your class wrong). Most games I played did end in a short time span but also most wargames we had were vs players at a much lower skill level and only had a few vs top tier teams.

Class balance seems alright to me with the exception of warriors seeming slightly too strong (wargames based opinions, wait till the ladder has been out for a couple weeks to form a real opinion).  That also might be why you feel like the pace of the game is fine because you're doing more damage than everyone else.

I think the damage/healing pace is fine too and I agree with you on that point. The reason games go long is more due to the amount of CC casters use and interrupts melee have which always gives their healers enough of a gap to heal a target up. There are also way too many defensive CD's with this pace of damage. Last patch you could get a handful of CD's used because of the higher damage, now its very easy to do an endless rotation of your defensive CD's.

Hopefully the gear increase will fix those problems. I also still would like to see the 15  minute timer change into a 10% stacking damage increase or healing reduction debuff.

They were clearly legit, no reason for a DQ.

Rofl, record 1 game not cheating, obviously proves never cheating.

Everyone knows he bots, the Tournie UI tracks spells used and oh gee golly 100% orbs until he's oom and has to cast soothing mist, shock shock.

I should have screenshotted it because he'll probably deny it, but Novoz's excuse for the Tournie UI showing only orbs cast all game is "it was bugged for him and didn't show all the other spells he casted"

Yeah....looks like this UI bug only affects Danny....hmmmm....

Your only reasoning you seem to be able to give it "He ONLY uses healing spheres" which is clearly not true, he casts all his heals every game. Link a recount breakdown he uses all his heals, just because he uses healing spheres more often doesn't mean anything; it's clearly a better spell why not use it? I also know for fact that the UI misses spells at times.

Answer the question though, what would someone have to do to please you. This rumor has gone far enough, people are using it as an excuse now with no basis.
