#4427792 Hey, 2015 Blizz - meet yourselves from the past

Posted Jim_Jim on Yesterday, 06:38 PM


Jaina is fun as fuck to play though.

You should try Abathur <3

I think HoTs can be weird for the regular Moba players (Which i'm not at all) because you can't really "carry" a team by yourself. You can't play alone, and make perfect action which will reduce the enemy avantages. There are some good action, but most of the time, it's a teamwork.
The best Hots player in an hypothethical tournament can't really win a game by himself if his partners are not really good and/or new to the game.

I tried LoL, and perhaps it's more "skilled" at "high rating", but even with lots of try, i don't have as much fun as i have in HoTs. The "grinding" part is really annoying for me. (Farming items, and the slow-paced early game).

Everyone has his own opinion i guess.

EDIT : I forgot some words.

#4427285 who is this human?

i can understand people who are 14 and insecure, if you're 18+ though i'd tell you to fix that shit asap because it's important to have self-confidence

#4427174 who is this human?

he's going to harvard bruh

also the idea of hiding the fact that i play a specific video game from somebody important like my gf just sounds super weird to me

dunno what kind of relationship you have with the other person to let them somehow make you quit playing a game you enjoy either

How the hell can you not see how botting BG's is detrimental to PvP just like pilots are though? They're both creating barriers to entry. One on end for beginner, on the other for those people who are really pushing for their first glad title.

BGs: Wow everyone who does random BG's are bots. Why would I even bother trying any rated BG's? Imagine how much worst it is!

Arena: Wow everyone in glad range seems to be the same couple dozen players just doing boosts and making money off of selling gladiator titles. These are all R1 players who can stomp up-and-comers like myself with ease. Why should I be stressing out over trying to get this title if I can't compete with the likes of these guys?

In both cases you get players who end up quitting because of this shit.

And I'm a big offender of botting, and in BC for selling glads, though not to the extent that I made it a full-time job, I think I did ~12 total, and that was when I never called it a pilot. I recently botted BG's because the only ones I enjoy are peaks, WSG, and AB. I can't bring myself to grind the shittier ones to get gear. I know I'm being a part of the problem but I don't really care. Just like I'm not going to get mad at blizzard or think the punishment of a TEMP (not even permanent) ban is 'out of line' on their end.

It's a mix of both sides at fault, at least from my own personal view. Yes exposing new players to nothing but bots is bad. But if Blizzard is going to have me play shit like strand and Isle of Conquest, then that's on them for putting out shit content. If I could full gear (and not wait 20 minutes for a queue pop, for those of you trying to nitpick and can't understand what people are talking about without it being completely spelled out) by doing nothing but WSG, AB, and EoTS, I'd never need a bot because just doing those BG's is fun enough for me.

If someone ques bgs and have their time ruined because of bots because they are trying real hard to win then they shouldn't que random bgs in the first place.  That's a place for fucking around.  So you really need to stop comparing bgs to arenas it's seriously retarded.  When you bot bgs, at the end of the day ..
You do realize the point of PvP is to get to play against other people?
If you prefer playing against bots / mobs, then can queue fucking Onyxia.

#4425046 Has WoW PvP ever been balanced?

Posted Odrareg on 16 May 2015 - 03:42 AM

S7 was probably balanced. S8 was less balanced but far more fun. Please let's not forget that everyone raged at double shadowmourne TSG, bauble of true blood was retarded, together with taunka/vrykul trinket tmorph... oh, I also laughed when my sacred cleansing procced.

It was just more fun though really. Regardless of the damage/healing ratio, bursty healing/bursty dmg stuff, the key point was that there was a difference between players. Even the simple fact that you had many more spells back then would provide far more entertainment..together with all the mechanics that were removed.

Hunters with min range for example added quite some skillcap, plus the fact that you had wing clip / raptor strike / mongoose bite was kind of "fun". As a warrior you had to stance dance so that was really really fun as well. As a holy paladin (this was a thing even in cata etc) you could decide whether to use wings and divine favor or just one of them, thus letting a good paladin save wings for later instead of having +3284923% healing when using them, like today.

I still love the game and love playing arenas with all myself really, I don't want to quit and I'm having a lot of fun. Inb4 "yes holy paladin ofc u like it"...that's not the point, I've always played this class and spec since 2007 as my main and still deeply love it.

However, some of the fun does go away when they think that the whole point of holy paladins being strong is fucking freedom glyph, instead of RETARDED healing during cds and close to nothing without wings...

You know, it's just so fucking sad when now you have to do MANDATORY things that EVERYONE can do. For example against a hunter, as a pala, you pretty much "HAVE" to BoP crows  (unless ofc the situation just reaaally is safe).  Today evening I tried not to follow this "simple rule", ending up on falling behind on healing because I tried to heal and save BoP; trying to outsmart the situation is not rewarding. You don't even have the tools to do so.

Paladins have this fucking shit mechanic of "Saved by the light". It's HORRIBLE, but it's damn needed! Take it away from a holy pala and watch them stuck on 2200.

When all of these "musts" didn't exist, and you had differentiation...you had a fun season. Not a balanced one, but a fun one.

Edit: I think the last time the game offered differentiation was S11 and Cataclysm, where atleast cleansing efficiency made some healers outstanding if compared to others. Everyone can do X and Y today instead, that's what's killing the game. Casuals can perform decently, and good players can't outperform too much less dedicated players; this hurts human nature sadly.
