PHD is still a very strong comp as well as TSG. The bottom line is people don't like to play with rogues right now and it's for a reason.

No one says they're not good or gladiator capable, it's just easier to run a spell cleave or some sort of cheese comp.

The only people running RMPS at 2700+ are long time RMP veterans who are good friends as far as I know.

How ever there are lots of first time spell cleavers who are medicore running at that rating, hence why people prefer it over rogues.

I'm holding the highest rated RPS team in world, and I'd still be playing RPS well in 2900's if my rogue was still active.

As you can see from the team roster, we also have a mage in, and I prefer playing RPS thousand times more than Shatterplay.


You just need to find good casters who love playing with rogues and not with other caster scum. I dislike spellcleaves and I prefer melee/caster/healer, people who don't prefer that style of comp over some kind of double caster healer, just play cheese which isn't even really fun most of the time.


#2535662 Arena pwnage

Posted Lolflay on 23 August 2010 - 06:50 AM

Basically this game needs LESS homogenization, rather than more.

If you don't bring a priest for fortitude, or a shaman for bloodlust, then you SHOULD be without that shit, not have some other class supply those unique buffs.

Same goes for dpsing, tanking, healing. If you spec prot, you ARE a fucking tank, not a guy who can go into arena and dish 30k on demand burst in 10 second period.



s8 really is a joke of a season due to the gear/class mechanics that are in place right now, makes observing tournies not fucking fun.


#2532408 Resto Druid/Spriest?

Posted Lolflay on 22 August 2010 - 12:57 PM

disc/rogue was a counter in s4 to this comp and indeed it was fucking hard winning, it was still doable though

nowadays... unless you face them on RoV, you shouldn't have any trouble winning at all.

*ALWAYS* disperse at 63% mana, when you're about to get vampiric touch up on the rogue, druid should rotate 3 clones into silence into bash into possible fear/horror, that locks out the priest for a very long time while you're killing the rogue. Rogue will almost always CloS if you can press 2-3 damage buttons as shadow, even without silence/bash used on the priest, so next time round just cc the fuck out of priest and rape the rogue

what I do when playing the druid in this comp is get 5 CPs on the rogue in cat form, then when I start CCing the priest, I maim the rogue so my shadowpriest can DPS freely.



You shouldn't really lose to this, unless you're a WoTLk hero who can't coordinate a unDR'd CC chain, or you face them on RoV where the priest just burns you 24/7 without you having the option to LoS


#2525211 Why are there no "amazing" [beastcleave/ATC/etc]?

Posted Lolflay on 20 August 2010 - 12:42 PM

naw, you just need to replace pvp neck, back, thrown, rings with items with agility, that's easy and yields you extra AP/crit/dodge

its incredible how shitty pvp items are itemized for rogues

Same deal at the European regionals - no one had anything good to say about the african turtle cleaves. And these are (presumably) the best of their comp in Europe

You have to understand that the ATC that attended, the Russian LSD that attended were two teams that shouldn't of qualified in the first place, other teams were okay mostly, Barbs/Hydras/Enigmz/Inflames being the obvious best teams that attended.

EU TR was a joke near the end, I didn't see a single team that was like, proper good, and was pushing for TR top 8, besides the 4 teams I mentioned above.

Yet on US TR there were dozens of good teams trying to fit in top 8.


I really, REALLY have no clue how the ATC qualified though, seeing everyone who has played them were just baffled at how random they were. I guess either all good players/teams on EU have the "meh, I cba with that, I'll let someone else do it" mentality, or they just don't plain care about tournaments of any sort, considering some teams that attended EU regionals just weren't the best that EU has to offer.


p.s. I suppose you all saw Asgod's TR movie - if his team wasn't playing just about anything and anyone, they would have qualified and placed quite well imo.


#2511676 Why can't I cold snap in duels?!

Posted Lolflay on 16 August 2010 - 05:19 AM

Honestly, if you don't force a Cold Snap/Preparation in a duel against mage/rogue ( and you're playing a class that isn't soft/hard countered by your opponent ), then you're just bad


#2502518 RMP r1 vaible(mutilate)

Posted Lolflay on 13 August 2010 - 10:13 AM

if the rogue can't play sdance, general rule of thumb is to ditch him ( as RMP/RLD that is )

envenom = tunnelvision damage with weak swaps, and doesn't really feel like a "standalone class"

shadowdance = supports the way RMP should be played, and feels like a standalone class seeing it doesn't require much help out of his partners for mobility/etc


#2447618 Hemostep Revival

Posted Lolflay on 26 July 2010 - 10:54 PM

Step daggers should focus around stab/eviscerate + sdance spambush evisc combos

Step hemo should focus around hemo/rupture + sdance full bleed+spambush inbetween


#2427639 I think it's fairly safe to say ( based on Blizzard's past decisions )

shit's not even out yet, but yeah, you're a bit more restricted than you were. Seeing the other talent trees kinda justifies it though ( from a druid PoV ).

the thing is, they're literally throwing mud at our eyes and we're not reacting at it, nobody asked for the simplified talent trees, and they delivered probably the shittiest change ever

When our shaman doesn't talk, we fail, simple as that


#2418818 Mage vs Spriest

Posted Lolflay on 18 July 2010 - 06:22 PM

look, if you play well, even a completely skill capped shadowpriest will get completely dominated to ground ( unless he's wearing maximum pvp resi gear, and is just trying to outlast you, then that's different story )

a mage on the roll in a duel is like a rollercoaster versus a single man, you get absolutely stomped and you feel fucking owned and that feeling doesn't go away until you do a lot of duels versus that single mage and get the feeling of how he plays

if he heals and is wearing light resi gear ( ~1.1k ), just continue turret spamming him, SPs aren't really mana efficient and if they spamheal themselves with dispersion down, chances are the SP is going oom sooner than later

only times I lost versus a mage was when I got dominated by the damage they're doing on me, so there's your answer ( mind you though, I'm definantley NOT a dueler - I'm arena PvPer, not a duelist, so take my answers with a grain of salt )

Sheep and steal all buffs, if the SP starts to silence instantly, counter it with CS into Sheep. Steal all buffs but also rebuff your own, that goes with AI, DM, Mana Shield Rank 1, SF, FW etc. Now that you got 20 buffs and he 0 just open with a hasted nuke and force Disprersion or trinket. He won't be able to do damage if you keep up the preassure and you can safely do a reset on the second Poly DR. It's all about if you can do X damage to lock down his dispelling and damage. He shouldnt be able to get to you, so you should always trinket the first horror to get momentum rolling. Normally block the first silence if it's an offensive one, if not just wand through it.

Recap: get as many buffs you can for dispell protection and do sick damage.

Best SP on my realm is lolflay but hes quite bad so I normally beat him without pets.

Spoiler

oj jeebus not this shit again

give my team 3 accs to play as RPS on BG9 and I'll show you how it's done

I've seen EU-Cyclone RPS teams on TR, who were pretty high rated on the ladder there at one point ( like 2700/2800+ ), and none of them polluted same results we did, and it's only becuse they can't/don't play it like we do

RPS = beastcleave style comp, where you micromanage the CCs you've got perfectly and create lockouts in beginnings of fights which score you kills, it's not designed as a outlast comp

infact the only fights where you take your time to win are against teams with more firepower than you have, THERE you need to play it extra smart and pillarhump until you go korean on someone of them

anything x/hunter/paladin is a softcounter though


#2403483 The new talent trees are pretty terrible.

Posted Lolflay on 14 July 2010 - 07:01 AM

What they need to do is REDUCE the amount of talent points you need to advance in next tier by 2

-Priests can get Inner Focus

-Mages can get imp CS

-Rogues can get Elusiveness

-etc etc etc

PLUS it will give you much stable talents choices, where you will choose only what you want, not what tree itself tells you to take
