The expansion where they added in so many abilities that specific classes began reaching critical mass.


The insane amount of bandaid fixes also stands out.

good change, but then u also have to look at feathers/spectral guise/chastise/fear, because there is no skill included to do this rota.

in earler times u had to choose as a priest if u wanna go in to get a fear by the risk of getting cc'd, nowadays u go in stealth at the other side of the arena and 3secs later enemy healer is in full fear

This thread is a splendid selection of tasteless gifs.

The stubborness to realise that their original dispel system was fine is beyond me.

#4058945 Don't be an asshole

Posted Esiwdeer on 21 February 2014 - 01:15 AM

How much can honestly be written about arena strategy from a player's perspective? This website, at its conception, was designed to be GameRiot meets WoM. I remember getting tells asking me to sign up in like, season 2? Anyway, the function is community, not information. If I didn't know how to play I'd go to Twitch, or watch videos. What am I going to read? The theorycrafting here has never been worth visiting for - what else is there besides community?

When there was an SK gaming list and WoM and almost nowhere else to talk to other players who exclusively PvP'd, this website had a niche. If you want to read patch notes, you'll go to MMO-Champion, if you want to watch someone else play, you'll go to Twitch. The only possible function this website could have is giving the ever-shrinking playerbase a sense of community.

You've never done any boost, Nadagast? Never played with anybody who was doing one? Not once? I bet if you could quantify the amount of damage that did to the "community" it'd be pretty tremendous, or at least moreso than "being an asshole." Moderatorship should be unbiased, should be bipartisan and should be consistent and active - it hasn't ever been any of those. European AJ mods have been found guilty of using the website to harvest IPs, you can just get banned for someone not liking you, whatever. Zunniyaki advertises selling boosts on this website and it goes unpunished. I got permanently banned for saying NAO was partnered with ArenaRating because somehow that was against the forum rules.

If you have some substance to post and reasonable credentials, you should able to do whatever you want within fair, consistent, universal rules - a forum is a place of open assembly for the people, not a place for idiots to learn how the people act. What would the website honestly be without people talking shit to one another? A bunch of 1 time Gladiators or first-time 2400s posting gifs and three word responses talking about how the game is shit? A bunch of TBC heroes talking about how the game is shit? A bunch of has-beens saying the game is shit? The game is shit dude, we got it. Grats on access.

You can't have conversations with people about the actual game. I bet you'd never say that Warlock or RLS or WLS or anything else was much stronger than any option any other class had. I've had in-depth discussions with people like Filovirus about how Hunter has always been stronger than Warlock as a class in the arena, like he can't even remember SL/SL - is that the information you want to have available?

Fast forward to Team Liquid or SoloMid and the discussion is, "yeah he won top, but that was pre-Renekton nerfs - I doubt it'll go the same way at IEM." or "he doesn't stand a chance after the Colossi nerfs, looks like an all Zerg semi-finals"

It's a roleplaying game. Not a PvP game. There has never been discussion that was unbiased or accurate in the history of this website. Maybe some gems, but everyone thinks they're the best so everyone's opinion is effectively worthless. And this game isn't competitive, so all anyone has is an opinion.

Everything you wrote has been written countless times. Cut the redundant 4th grade teacher PC crap and properly moderate the forum. You're not reinventing the wheel with the "why-can't-we-all-get-along-think-of-the-lurkers" act and quite frankly you're bordering on arrogance if you're actually thinking anything's going to change by posting this.

IP ban whomever needs to be banned. Problem solved, or will at least head towards that direction.

I'm sure everyone has seen how much trolling and general douchebaggery have infected AJ.  I'd like it to stop.

Trolling and assholery puts AJ on a downward spiral.  People troll/asshole-it-up, which leads to less people using this as a forum for serious/reasonable discussion, which leads to more trolling, etc.  AJ always was and continues to be the most popular place for new players to get into the PvP scene.  Any community relies on new members to sustain itself--by making this place a wasteland we are doing nothing but ensuring our own demise.

Before you post a reply or topic, ask yourself: am I being an asshole?  If you are, change your post to take a more educational tone.  If you're feeling heated about something, take some time to cool off before replying.  Don't immediately assume someone is trolling you, some people are just not very knowledgeable.  Worst case, if you reply in a calm educational manner, you've posted something informative for the hundreds or thousands of lurkers who will view your reply.  These are generally newer PvPers, and anything you do to help sustain them as arena players helps all of us.

On any set of forums, it's easy to forget that almost all of the people reading it are lurkers, who will never make any posts.  Lurkers cannot be trolls, they can't be assholes, they are just here to learn or read interesting things.  Post interesting, informative content.  Post drama if you want, but don't be an asshole.  Fuck the trolls, post for the lurkers.
