#1774293 Spriest skillcap?

Posted Mewee on 27 January 2010 - 05:17 PM

Stop confusing having a high skillcap with being easy/hard to succeed with.


If Class A have 10 buttons but only 2 of them is needed to WIN, you can simply ignore 8 buttons and still succeed and win arena games. That does not however mean that you are skillcapped, cause you aren't taking full potential of your class and it's mechanics.

However, If you have a Class B with 20 buttons and push all 20 of them in a masterful and complex synergy and still lose, it means you could probably be very close or at the skillcap, but despite that your class is absolute garbarge in current metagame and playing at that level does not yield similar results as class A.

With that said, Shadowpriest skillcap (meaning the ROOF where your play is absolutely flawless and no any one decision or reaction could have been made better) is not as high as a mage or warlock, but there is no one currently playing this game in the world who is "skillcapped" by definition. Sorry, get your head out of the clouds if you think so.

Shadowpriest is harder to SUCCEED with than other classes, but that is merely a question about relative class balance, and has very little to do with how high the actual skillcap is.

I hate 3v3 as shadow, pretty much my only rant.

2v2 and 5v5 are where the shit's at, 2v2 was only bracket where we had comps in which your skill mattered. 3v3 is just zerg something fast :[

to the person which downrated that post with "only hates 3v3 because he fails at it" comment - you do realize I'm atm on 80% winrate @ 2600 MMR, right ?

As I said, 3v3 is fucking horrendeous and either we zerg something down fast or something zergs our shaman down fast, there's no balance - and I loved the bracket in TBC because I felt it was more about the team than the comp - nowadays it's just a long, boring cooldown-spam fest, and literally only people which are doing something even remotely "skillful" are top RMP's who barely keep up with other retarded combos and only manage to win thanks to outplaying opposition.
