#4384416 Chinese people found new meta

This is why you're only able to hit 3k with a 50% win/loss. Once you get a negative win/loss going you can finally climb higher.

#4383342 The most successful arena expansion

Posted by Lloix on 07 February 2015 - 06:02 PM

I think nostalgia is clouding all your brains too hard. S15 was probably the BEST season as far as spec viability and diversity goes. You could literally play almost any spec and comp and be viable.

I don't see how having every spec being viable=good. Just because every spec god shit tons of offensive/defensive cd's, tons of cc's and interrupts doesn't mean it wasn't some shitty clusterfuck. It's weird how often people complain about homogenization ruining the game yet use the metric of 'how many specs are viable to make different comps' to gauge how good a season/xpac was. Am I just not understanding this correctly?

I think that there should be niche specs that are used to make up a 'balanced' comp. Meaning you have a mix of coordinated burst damage, reliable cc, and an ms effect. This whole 'bring the player not the spec' mentality is exactly the reason this game hasn't been balanced, and you end up with some specs outright dominating all of the others because it has just a little bit extra than everything else.

#4376099 Unpopular opinions thread

Posted by Lloix on 29 January 2015 - 02:31 PM

Twinking is more fun right now since the focus revolves around positioning, coordination, and mind games to land kills rather than the a>b>c approach of 1-2minute CD management.

#4363705 so fun getting ddosed

Posted by Lloix on 18 January 2015 - 08:13 PM

It's hilariously pathetic that 'proxy up' is the only appropriate response now because blizzard doesn't ever ban anyone over this stuff. It's like I'm playing some brazilian game.

We played some games a week or two ago with that other random hpally who did nothing but talk to his mom/wife/whatever about smoking weed. We won some games, would queue again but you're always updating your status LF people but never have heals.

Where are the heals?

#4357467 rbgs have the highest skill cap

Posted by Lloix on 14 January 2015 - 06:20 AM

Nice necro of one week? Keeping that rampage alive.

I think rbgs are fun but:

'let us for example imagine a situation in which two mice are placed in a box, and that they have to battle to the death. Clearly, the more flyhack capable, bloodthirsty mouse would come out on top and skill wouldn't be a factor'

fixed. Maybe if more people get into rbgs because after doing the 3 win cap for a few months they suddenly have some rating they'll wanna try to push, and more cheaters will bring this stuff to light? JK its blizzard

#4355742 if you wana know why no one takes rbgs serious

Posted by Lloix on 13 January 2015 - 02:16 PM

It's funnier that people exploit against shitty 1800 random groups run by screaming Peruvians. Like, why would you need to bother doing that to win?

#4347215 Are most healers rerolling Rdruids? o_O

Posted by Lloix on 10 January 2015 - 08:19 PM

AT Cata and MOP are pretty much dead, TBC is completely dead
Wotlk is the only server that still gets decent numbers online during good hours like 1000-1500 afaik

But the ladders are a lot more stagnate, which results in a lot less diversity and queues.

Compared to back when AT was arguably bigger in the arena community than retail and when tons of top players played during Cata, ya it's dead

AT is mostly fixated on WoD AT which they believe will save the server. The only thing that will really get Wotlk AT back to its former glory would be if the top players returned and streamed and stuff, but that is unlikely to happen.

One could only hope. I get so excited to log in then realize that there's no one playing.

#4341420 Hunters fixed! Praise holinka! 6.0.3 Hotfixes: January 8

Posted by Lloix on 09 January 2015 - 02:30 AM

Not sure what five yards is in wow-metrics, but now I'm concerned they make traps go from 'hits every time' to 'never lands inc. hunter tears'. Would have preferred to just see a long cooldown tbh, but I am a fan of some setup required to land traps.

Also what fucking game is this, fixes every day? How many blowjobs did holinka get on vacation like one?

#4340349 combat kidney shot now 6 secs!

Posted by Lloix on 08 January 2015 - 07:03 PM

While I won't disagree that most posts are toxic, I think most people are just getting angry at people who try to defend their spec as not broken/easy to play and requires some sort of skill. You can be more humble about it saying 'yea the spec is faceroll but I'm not here to say I'm better than anyone else' and I think most people would be okay with it. Look at how many people like dilly.

#4339665 Athlete and Bailamos exploiting

Posted by Lloix on 08 January 2015 - 02:47 PM

I think it's batshit insane that this thread has everyone agreeing that rbgs are a pointless/dead bracket (even though I do find it fun and a change of pace) but also bringing out the absolute worst in them.

People are giving talb shit now, seriously? I'm pretty sure he doesn't even swear.

#4326354 Do you have fun queing arena?

Posted by Lloix on 31 December 2014 - 04:06 PM

Rdruid/rogue - oh they have illidan's blades

And then : Wotlk


Yeah, 2v2.

You can win and lose everything in TBC 2v2, if you have one of the 4 overpowered spec with you. (Rogue/War/WarlockSLSL/Rdruid), of course. I remembered some forum post when an outsider class (=everyone) have achieved the shoulders (2200 rating.)


You also forgot sp/rogue, mage/disc, and mage/sp in there. Not sure why you said lock/druid three times.You also forgot all the hunter comps. Shoulders were also only 2000.

edit: There was a really good article years ago (between BC/Wrath) on how the meta used to be properly set up between DR schools and the fact that only certain classes had an MS effect (was on worldofming, forgot who wrote it). For some reason, as others have mentioned, Blizzard believed retards who said that every retarded spec/comp should be viable, because women's rights or something.

#4307508 Life fuck ups

Posted by Lloix on 19 December 2014 - 04:25 PM

your girlfriend is genuinely fucking retarded if she thinks that some bullshit online persona translates into anything in real life. i'm sorry that your just now finding out that she is a dipshit but there is nothing any rational human being could say to convince her dumbass otherwise. i've seen retardation like this before and my best advice would be to end the relationship and find someone that does not regularly attend special education classes.

Are people seriously so detached from the outside world now that they don't understand shit like this comes off as super weird (and to girls incredibly 'creepy')?

Really, you can't see how someone making online posts, on a forum related to World of Warcraft, about their sexual fantasies and posting pictures of them (the fact that it's without their knowledge is where the problem stems) comes off as not-too-normal?

I'm not defending either side, and honestly they're both tapped if they're airing their dirty laundry on this same forum, but you have to understand how ridiculous all of this looks to the outsider.

#4307322 Hunter POM Sheep

Posted by Lloix on 19 December 2014 - 02:09 PM

Every thread turns into a dilly vs. glinks thread now its kinda funny or maybe sad. I don't know why you both feel the need to get so worked up on a Mongolian image board. Is there some backstory (besides the points you've both beaten into the ground at this point) that I could be filled in on?
