#3913658 Region Wide Arena!

5.4 Region Wide Arena!

With the upcoming patch you will be able to queue arena against anyone else in your region, I will be discussing what this means for WoW arena, and how it will benefit players as a whole.

What is Region Wide Arena?

Region wide arena just means you can queue up arena and not be restricted to facing teams that are only on your battle group / battle group pool. Currently the system is restricted to 2-3 battle groups that your pool can face, that will be no longer in the upcoming patch.

What has changed?

The major change with this patch is that there will be no more arena teams! This is a huge change, which means you can invite anyone to a group and queue up arena you will have a personal rating for each bracket which will increase / decrease, the same way the rated battle ground system currently works.

How does this benefit me?

This new system means that you can invite anyone even cross realm and queue arena without having to worry about leaving your team. This will also save you some money on server transfers to play with your friends!

How do ladders work?

Ladders will be the same as how the RBG ladder is currently, gladiator will be obtained based on % as it is now, but will be calculated on how many active players there are in the whole region, rather than just a battle group.

A rank 1 or equivalent title will also be given based on percentage.

Possible Title Requirements:

Rank 1: End a PvP season in the top 0.1% of the arena ladder (requires 50 games won in Season 14).

Gladiator: End a PvP season in the top 0.5% of the arena ladder (requires 50 games won in Season 14).

Duelist: End a PvP season in the top 3% of the arena ladder (requires 50 games won in Season 14).

Rival: End a PvP season in the top 10% of the arena ladder (requires 50 games won in Season 14).

Challenger: End a PvP season in the top 35% of the arena ladder (requires 50 games won in Season 14).

What does this mean for WoW arena?

If this system turns out to be a success then it could mean brilliant things for the arena scene. It will increase competitiveness on ladders since all players will be able to actively play against each other. It could decrease queue times, currently at high ratings queue times are generally long. With this new system there will be a larger range of high rated teams to face!

watching what should be one of the top teams lose to randoms cause they're forced into playing a shit comp isn't interesting. I know snutz wasn't around but still, those games were not enjoyable.
1) Those "randoms" are some of the best teams in Russia. Not knowing them doesn't mean they are randoms

2) The same "randoms" had AMAZING teamplay if you were watching the game carefully instead of paying too much attention to the commentary. If you were watching the games they were actually very intense with tons of clutch moments from both teams

3) It was their choice to play a "shit" comp. Venruki could pick fire and have a much easier time. He wanted to play frost, I respect that, but he wasn't forced, it was his choice. It's not like the other team was playing t1 comps

General notes:

All in all, the tournament so far is very enjoyable to watch, both match-wise and drama-wise. Don't like it fuck off.

To the people flaming non-English speaking commentators; in a Russian organized tournament, with Russian money, you should be grateful you had Azael commentating in English.

An observation regarding "skill" differences in WoW between EU and US:

US: More teamplay, less weight to individual skill
EU: More weight to individual skill, less teamplay
Overall: US~EU

I am deeply disappointed by US players, because I thought (wrongly it seems) that they had far superior manners compared to EU players. Commentary is also somewhat biased; every single global US teams use is "intelligent", "beautiful" and "amazing". Of course, I am more than certain that it would be the same for EU teams if EU players were commentating.

Tl;dr both sides of the Atlantic are the same exact shit on the internet

#3905950 Arena Teams no More

Posted Guest on 29 June 2013 - 04:52 PM

It'd be awesome if they made it so that titles were promoted daily instead of per season. That way when you achieve a new high rating you can login the next day with your new title. There would be active competition to be "rank 1" as well.

Know all of them except long arm and suff daddy.

It's not exactly what I'm looking for though... Basically, I started listening to these because of Gaslamp Killer, but specifically the mixes where he uses psychedelic rock or old rock ballads, not where he goes crazy with really glitchy/fast/weird stuff (although hearing him mix these two opposites is amazing to me). Best example of this is When I Was Twenty One mixtape (http://truant.bandca...nty-one-mixtape - couldn't find it anywhere else, even discogs doesn't know it), second half of his Essential Mix is also very close to what I want (https://soundcloud.c...sential-mix-the - 1:05:00 and onwards).

Basically I'm looking for either of these things: psychedelic rock, because I literally don't know anything about it outside of Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and Jefferson Airplane; beats close to Flylo's sound, especially with old blues/jazz/rock samples (or in other words: suggesting Flylo is spot-on, but I know his discography all too well); or amazing rock ballad and blues originals (similar to those I linked above or in GLK's mixes).[...] I enjoy the whole genre really, just looking for something very specific right now.


psychedelic rock is literally my favorite genre so I might be able to help you out. if you want to start lighter with more pop-oriented psych check out the beatles' revolver, jefferson airplanes surrealistic pillow (as I know you like them) and love's forever changes and tame impala's innerspeaker. if you're more onto the progressive side, which I think is the case seeing as you like Pink Floyd you oughta listen to king crimson's in the court of the crimson king, yeti by amon düül II, faust IV by faust and tago mago by can. for a more blues oriented sound look into the doors' self titled album, captain beefheart's safe as milk and electric ladyland by the jimi hendrix experience. now that the basics are covered you can delve into some real avant garde shit. The United States of America's only album, Frank Zappa's Hot Rats, Cottonwoodhill by Brainticket and Boredom's Vision Creation Newsun.

flylo, tokimonsta, analogue monsta, maybe robot koch to a degree, long arm, probably suff daddy and all those german semi underground nigger producers whose names I can't remember right now

generally lots of project mooncircle stuff

#3900732 New Arena tournament hosted by Bleached Bones ~30 000$ prize pool

Posted Svetozarov on 16 June 2013 - 07:10 PM

Once again we are happy to annonce a new tournament called League of Arenas hosted by Bleached Bones and its partners.  This tournament is going to be unlike anything you have seen before! The prize pool for the first season which will last untill the end of the current arena season will be around 30 000 $!

We were thinking a lot about the rules, format and gear. How to make arenas balanced?
As always genious decision is the most simple. Let the players choose setups themselfs, like they do it in Leagues of Legends or DotA. They will be able to ban imbalanced specs, counterpick enemy team using intellect and not wine about the setups anymore. Dont wanna face BM hunters? Ban them. Restor shamans are OP against wizards? Ban them too. But keep in mind that enemy team will also break your supercomp and will make it weaker.

Each team that is participating in Arena's League can consist of 3-5 members. They can play any classes and speccs. Before each game captains of both teams log in to special interface, where they can do picks and bans.  The interface was created by Prestige-Gaming programmers and the process of bans in picks will be executed via prestige-gaming.ru web page, thus the captain of each team should be registerd on prestige-gaming.

Bonuses from tournament format:

Teams can ban unbalanced specializations.
Mind-game between teams during the picks.
We will see great variety of different and sometimes exotic comps.
Players that can play different speccs or even classes would be very useful.
If any team played over 9000 in one fotm setup you can easily ban it and force them to play something different.

For those who don't speak Russian it would be hard to register a team directly on the web page on their own thus the team captain should contact me (Svetozarov) via skype jam_ftw.  Be prepared to explain why you deserve to be in the tournament. The registration is extended untill June 26th.
