#4434104 When you're so bored of the season-

Posted BalanceRexxar on 11 June 2015 - 05:47 AM

if you're that bored of the season you should do the opposite of whats in this video, give yourself a challenge, help someone achieve their goals instead of getting whatever sick pleasure you get out of watching somebody be sad. this is the definition of a toxic and negative post.

Please go on, because as it's been now I read shit that thaya posts, explain why it's wrong and makes no sense, and get the same 'you're retarded' response. Every time. It's like this whole meta trolling going on in here. Interesting stuff.

It's like EU people literally do not have the capacity to explain themselves.

Will wait patiently for thaya to answer my question as I've done so for him.

I don't have the willpower to explain why you're being a spastic, if you can't see it at the age of 25 then there's no hope.

Posted pharrelle on 09 June 2015 - 05:20 PM

so I met this great girl last weekend at a party and I'm feeling kinda torn.

She's half brasilien/half german, intelligent, cute and she was into gymnastics so she has a bangin' body literally 9.5/10 overall.
>17 years old / 1.55 cm height / dark brown hair / brown eyes / light tanned / most kissable lips

Was kinda burned out at the start of the party because me and a friend of mine we're swimming in a Lake at night nearby so we just kinda passed by on our home-way. And since that party was in walking distance from my place I stayed when my friend went home early since he had college classes the next morning.

wasn't as many people there since it was a private thing maybe 10 - 12 ppl in total? Got in conversation with her rather quickly since she shared the same name (emily) as my little sister and the best friend of hers.
(10/10 blonde turk with blue eyes who's the gf of a bro of mine who's also a good looking blonde turk - weird coincidence I know)

While doing that my other bro pulled me away and told me how fucking hot he finds emily and how he thinks that she's just perfect for him, since he's an gymnastic who compete's on national level and she was many years in gymnastics and stuff. And obv also because of how breathtaking beautiful she was.

The thing is my friend has like 0 game and 0 courage which is sad because he's really handsome, and as a gymnastic shredded as fuck, hes rocking like 7% bodyfat and could easily have lots and lots of 8/10's and 9/10's if he would just take a bit of a risk when talking to girls. Instead he stayed a virgin way too long and everytime I tell him that me and him will go and talk to some girls he's being a pussy and bringing up some cheap excuses because he lacks the courage to talk to girls, he doesnt already know out of his social circle.

So I kinda back down, and try to wingman him as much as I can. trying to practice damange control on stupid shit he says because he doesnt know better.
At some point she mentions that she in fact has a boyfriend. That's when hes feeling crushed. I could literally see his entire life with her and their kids flashing up in a fire in front of his imaginary eyes.
But instead of continuing of flirting with her and just getting to know her better he kinda completely shuts down, starts drinking more heavily and letting her stand all by herself.

So since that " project " is pretty much dead I'll atleast get myself some company and chat it up with her because I can't ignore a girl like this if she's not together with one of my friends. You may think I'm an asshole for that but fuck that and fuck her boyfriend, she later even tells me that he's treating her disrespectul at many times and that he's very jealous - which tells me that he's an insecure beta faggot who doesn't even can't up with a girl who's that intelligent and cute. If anything she's wasted on a punk like this who doesn't know how to treat his own girl right.

At this time also the booze storage is kinda drawing itself to a close. But since I came later and bought my own stuff, I still had plenty.
She ask me to pur her some more in, which I do but on a very weak mix. Prolly because of her name in I get some protective feelings, and dont want her to get all too fucked up. Also she's only 17.

Anyway I learn that shes besides in german, english, portugese also in spanish fluent. At which point I prolly projected all my hopes and desires on that girl since she seemed just to become more and more perfect wtf.
We change to spanish, at first she was kinda shy, but with the time shes more relaxed and feeling more confident talkind spanish, its not as good as mine and she kinda talks slow but hey she's 17 and is already fluent in 4 languages just as me.

At this time I already have her excluded from the group and whe were talking at the other side of the room in private and also sharing a lot of personal stuff. All while doing that I'm starting to really grow on that girl and from the signals of constant touching me and reaching for my hands I can tell that she's feeling the chemistry too. She proceeds to show me song's from the time she spent in spain and that she's planning on staying this summer a week down there as well and that she wishes she had the chance to grow up in spain because she loves the language just that much. I proceed to talk about the dominican republic and the caribbean lifestlye, the music, the food, the people the vibe you get from people down there. She's very interested when I talk about bachata which is a music style natively from the caribbean's. While playing the song on my cellphone we have to close even closer to each other than we already were.
That's when I take the initiative and exclude her farther from the group so I can show her the basic dance steps which are actually quite simple. She's a very fast learner and gow damnit she really knows how to move these hips, once again I'm reminded that she's also a latina. We proceed to practice the dance steps while playing the music from my cellphone and moving closer and closer with every step.
At this point she's fully pressing her C-cup against me and grinding my leg while me having my left hand on her back and my right hand on her butt at the same time she's laying her head on my neck and breathing in my ear intensively.

There's just this much as I can take, I'm having a full blown boner with no opposition in my swimtrunks, from her grinding on me by now. and there's literally no way that she could have NOT notice it. I really have to restrain myself to not take advantage of her right now. The electricity in air already gave sparks, if we would have been anywhere else I'm certain I couldnt have restrain myself to not press her against a wall and leading her into hours of extensive making out and passionate grinding.

I don't want to keep her away from the group too long so the others don't get suspicious, when we come back her best friend has a wide grin on her face when she's looking at me and prolly thought that we had it already kicked of.

Anyway it was getting late and we were sorting out who drive with whom home, while I was expecting to walk home anyways a friend of mine is offering me to take me home these few hundred meters. Emily is driving home with the others since they all live pretty close to each other. At the goodbye she hugs me very tightly and long, while I don't want to be as affectionate in front of the others I cant restrain myself to steel a peck on her lips as she's holding me. She doesn't say anything and smiles as she proceeds to get in the car.

Later at night I text her if she's home by now and safe (their driver was sober but is just a shitty driver tbh) and she continues telling me how much she enjoyed being able to talk spanish again and when I'm going to fly to the dominican republic and that she want's to meet up before I go.
At the same night my bro who's also really into her is texting me and asking for advice and going on' and on' on how she's so perfect for him and how he thinks that he's falled for her and can't stop thinking about her and ask's what he should do next and if I would help him and how his heart is broken on the fact that she currently has a boyfriend. I tell him to calm down and go to bed because at the state he was I was sure these thoughts would keep him awake the entire night. And offer him to go to the lake tomorrow and talk it up there. He thanks me and goes to sleep.

Next day we head out and all he's talking about is emily it was actually quite cute to see him like this, because he's normally not that exicted when it comes to girls, so I enjoyed seeing him in love aswell. This was last sunday. We had a nice day at the lake and I explained to him what's the best way to proceed in his situation.

this was last sunday.
I've texted since then with emily back and forth, while shes obv a bit more conservative when she's more sober I still feel the great chemistry between us and it's really easy for me to make her laugh and just having a good time all in all.
Now she agreed to see me on the Farewell party my friends are throwing for me. I told her that my bro will be there aswell.
He was obv very pleased with that and also thankful to me.

Now I'll be staying in germany only till the beginning of next month anyway so there's no real reason to work to the goal of an relationship with her. And I wold be really happy for my bro if he finally lock himself down a girl who suits him.

Now the logical answer is pretty easy to see. But It still fucking hurts. It hurts so much junkies. I'm prolly going to end up doing the right thing and pave the way for my bro in sacrifice of my own feelings. I like to be genuinely happy to do that, but it kills me I have to admit, and I don't like that side of me.

#4432292 WoD's Design Paradigm and the Warcraft Experience

Posted Bigmoran on 06 June 2015 - 07:07 AM

Post on official forums: http://us.battle.net...c/18000131343#1 Please support this post if possible.

I haven't been keeping up with the forums recently, but it has been quite clear to me that there is a growing sentiment that WoW is less fun than it used to be. As someone who has played WoW for over eight years, this is something I have also felt as of late. I want to be very clear that I really like World of Warcraft. I have had someone of my fondest experiences and met some of my closest friends on this game. That being said, I am very concerned for the future of WoW. I certainly do not want to see the game I've loved for eight years die in a single expansion. The aim of this post is to try and illuminate what I think are the core problems of World of Warcraft's current design paradigm. By no means are any of these problems original ideas. I'm sure there are plenty of posts that have shared my exact feelings. My hope is that others may share some of these feelings and create conversations with both the developers and the community itself.

I. The lack of 'world' in World of Warcraft

Garrisons were originally an interesting novel addition to the WoW experience. They served the purpose of delivering an individual single player experience. While the intention of adding Garrisons might have been to allow for a more personal solo gameplay, I think the psychological effects of Garrisons have been quite damaging on the community. For one, they removed the need for many laborious activities to be done across Azeroth. Everything from gold farming to transmorgification can be done within the Garrison. While this may seem very convenient, it is also incredibly isolating. It is possible to be entirely self sustainable while never needing to leave your Garrison. A friend of mine has even leveled a character 90-100 by simply completing Garrison missions every day.

Smaller server sub-communities are often created in zones with lots of interaction. Durotar and Elwynn Forest are places where people would meet up with each other. They could duel, chit-chat, banter, gossip, etc. While these zones still exist, it is much more common to see many people on your friends list just sitting in their Garrison. It is the equivalent of locking yourself in your room while there is a wonderful party going on in your house. Stormshield and Warspear don't really feel like main cities. Instead there are just a waypoint between you and your Garrison.

II. Trivialized Rewards

I think this problem has its roots with the introduction of Justice Point gear during the Zul'Aman patch in BC. Rewards are given to players for completing the most trivial of tasks. Queue a BG? Get a reward. Complete a dungeon? Get a reward. Complete a garrison mission? Get a reward. Items and achievements are given for almost everything you do in WoW. These trivial tasks also trivialize the reward you receive.  I recently graduated from university. Even though my diploma is a fancy piece of paper, it symbolizes four years of work.  Imagine if all it took to receive a college diploma was to complete a ten question survey. Surely it would devalue the worth of the diploma itself. While it does make gearing characters a much faster process, spamming players with rewards is also something that I see as damaging. Giving players meaningful challenges is something that motivates them to play.

The trivializing of rewards is something that has also effected PvP. The prestige of PvP titles has been lost since the removal of Battlegroups. Rank one titles had more meaning when they were only given to a single team (barring the Season 8 fiasco and other ties throughout the arena seasons). Rank one titles seem to be passed out like hotcakes. Once again, this devalues the worth of the achievement and trivializes the effort involved in obtaining it.

III. Scripted PvP

I really appreciate the effort of Blizzard in barring bots from the game. That being said, I think these efforts were made too late and there is definitely more work to be done. Nonetheless, even if there is not a single bot in WoW, PvP seems to be rather scripted. What I mean by this is that every class and composition has its own script that determines the most optimal plays in a particular matchup. The better each player is at performing their script determines the outcome of the matchup. Mages are a class that I think characterize scripted gameplay. Every 30 seconds, Mages will use Blazing Speed, Blink, Deepfreeze, and Polymorph/Ring of Frost. It's a rinse and repeat algorithm.

The scripted feeling of PvP distorts the depth that each class is capable of achieving. Each class and composition is streamlined into playing a certain way. If you do not play by the script, you will fail. If you play by the script, you will succeed.

IV. Cooldowns being too strong or too weak

One of the biggest changes to class design since Vanilla was the increasing number of cooldowns with every expansion. While I do think cooldowns are interesting, there is an incredible imbalance of the strength of different cooldowns and their interactions with other abilities. Simply put, some cooldowns are disproportionately strong compared to others. One example of crazy powerful cooldown/ability interaction that is Bestial Wrath, Focus Fire, A Murder of Crows, and Barrage. These four abilities (all of which are cooldowns) dramatically increase the damage done by the BM hunter. The only class that can completely counter this combination of abilities is Rogue (they can Vanish to remove crows and Stun/Gouge/Blind to interrupt Barrage). Some offensive and defensive cooldowns are incredibly powerful, so much so that matchups revolve around the usage of these cooldowns and how well the other team answers with their own cooldowns. It's another form of the script. The most optimal reply to cooldown usage is often more cooldown usage. This cooldown matching doesn't really seem to add much to the depth of matchups. To me, games are infinitely more exciting when they are not determined by a single ability, but instead the consistent good use of an entire skill set.

V. Passive abilities

Controlling your character involves conscious use of movement keys and abilities. Casting a Chaos Bolt, running around with Sprint, and shifting into Bear Form all involve a physical interaction with you and your peripherals. Moving around and casting spells gives you a sense of robust autonomy and allows you to connect with your character. Another change in class design over the years has been the introduction of many passive abilities and perks. While these may benefit each individual class and spec, they really seem to distort this feeling of "I did that" when it comes to controlling your character. In PvP, one of the most complained about passive abilities is Saved by the Light. This ability, like other passives, does not require the user to perform anything (sure you can make the argument that it requires Beacon of Light on the target but that is beside the point). This trivializes the value of the ability itself. If a matchup is determined by a passive Seal of the Light proc, it is psychologically damaging to both the winning and losing team. The Paladin feels like they haven't really done anything-- their win cannot be attributed to the conscious and careful use of a spell. The team that loses is frustrated, knowing that the enemy team has won the matchup because the game had registered a target at x% HP and prevented the death of that target.  

Conclusion (TL;DR)

Much of the current design paradigm in WoW has had psychological damage on players, dampening their motivation to play the game. Overall the game feels less immersive, provides too many rewards, reinforces homogenized gameplay strategies, and revolves too much around powerful cooldowns and passive abilities. The game seems to be losing much of its spirit. Having a fun time in WoW involves joining a community, being creative with your spells, and having a sense of achievement.
