I guess that's personal preference. Sports fans would definitely agree with you seeing as most athletes can barely read. Personally I've always been obsessed with rare knowledge, having it over people because they aren't aware of something that I am. One thing I can say for sure is cataclysm was garbage with a low skill cap for mages. I briefly came back and got my friend's mage glad in s9, it was nothing but ice lance spam.
I always felt dirty about winning due to a advantage only I was aware of. I also felt dirty about employing the most effective strategies, like, I played a flashy strategy in my head and tried to follow it instead of just going with the easiest, and more effective approach ( that was usually either zerging, or turtling until they made a mistake ).
Those are probably the reasons I never got r1 lmao, I'm a fucking bad winner. FUCK.
are u trying to say tbc arenas were real in any way
or is it just because ayra's bbc is down ur throat
You're joking, right ? TBC arenas took more skill than MoP arenas did. I remember planning kiting paths and other shit purely because when I got slowed, the game was over as I wouldn't get to the druid before his partner raped the living shit out of me, there were so many little details you had to pay attention to. An error meant a loss, you were punished for incompetence ( unless you played pve rogue/druid but that's another story for another time ). MoP ? Ah yep, I got fucked up, better press one of my defensive buttons that light up on my bar, that's the right choice in this situation.
That's the reason I fucking hate all the inbreds who think they're so good and shit right now, you people are playing a inferior version of a once really good game, and then go as far to defend it versus people who genuinely know better than you do. Thank fuck WoD actually looks playable and fun.
Granted, TBC sucked in the viability of specs department, and that's the only thing one can really say against it.
Some very serious jobs should have absolutely required psychological evaluations ( not saying that most of them don't, but a few still slip here and there ), a person that's completely unfit for a serious profession ( ranging from personality to general competence ) with enough effort can pass a curriliculum designed for a such a job.
