a)There is no sense of reward or punishment in those forums and in the game now. You can be a saint and get nothing or be a complete jackass and get the respect of this mob called junkies, just because you got "swag" (/puke)
b)The game atm can be played almost solo mode. You don't need a guild to do raids - you got lfr. You can get gear from dailies. In BC pve and pvp gear were interlinked - you could pvp in pve gear and vice versa and you had to work with a closely knit team to achieve your goals
c) The moderation is, as the word says, moderate. Moderators are too easy on everyone. Bans are rare. Infractions have too high of a cap. Any sociopath that had problems with his real life, can come here and open fire on everyone without any kind of punishment, UNLESS, someone, somewhere decides to push the report button which is scarcely used
d)"Good" players have no time now. They are "too busy" or afking. I remember in s2, the one that helped me transition from rogue to warrior was a guy named Dustman that was top 5 2s/3s most of s2 and 3. This guy was qing 24/7, but when I asked him for help (multiple times), he literally stopped qing to give me macros and playstyle advice. I am still continuing his legacy of helping others. People turn to me for help in messages and in game whispers while my title collection is the lowest of the low. Why? Because I care to help them
e)Bitches play this game. What do I mean? Instead of working around the imbalances and/or making helpful suggestions on how to improve the game, they just bitch. 24/7 they bitch about everything. "Why is my class weak?"."Why can't I have tattoos on my character?". "Why can't I can't see my character's genitalia to masturbate?".
f)You get the most +rep for posting moronic bullshit and childish insults. Good posts are rarely rewarded.
This AJ, is sending all the new players to either skill-capped or streamers. How many new players are willing to pay money to learn how to pvp? Quite a few. How many new players would pvp if they didn't have to pay to go through the rough learning curve? A lot.
tl;dr If moderation in this place doesn't become way more strict, if no incentives are given to junkies for making guides (even that pet giveaway that Curse does), this situation will keep recycling itself perpetually.

But I want things to happen. So I thought, what can we - the players - do? What can the AJ community do?
First of all, content.
I think everybody agrees that WoW PvP is pretty hard to get into just due to the knowledge required to be successful. Generally speaking, you need to know a lot of things before you can even really enjoy the game and understand what's going on. 40-60 abilities per spec, subtle but important cooldowns, various lethal combinations of cooldowns/spells and their approximate potential, all the important defenses, various interface scripts/addons that could help you, et cetera. This game is only fun when you can actually anticipate things, know when to play safe or when to push (based on their cooldowns), know which things to interfere/stop to prevent your team from using major cooldowns, know when you can be stopped or not... and all this meta game is possible only if you know the game well enough.
It's pointless and nearly impossible to cover all of that in text or video guides. However, what can be covered are all the basic things that new people will ask, like: which talents and glyphs to use, how to gear, gameplay basics (which spells to use, which combos to try and pull off), what is my role in rbg/arena/xyz, which team mates/classes should I look for, which counters to my combos to look out for, where do I place my portal/gate (example of a spec-specific question), which things should I prioritize while I'm new, are there any addons or macros that will make my life easier... You can cover pretty much all the theory.
These basic guides are so valuable, it surprises me that people completely abandoned writing them. When I log on a new class and don't know even the very basics, like how to deal damage most efficiently, I really wish those guides still existed. I just want to get into the head of an experienced [with the spec] player to get answers for all my basic questions; even if I'm guessing what the right answer is, being certain about it would help the learning process a lot. You don't need to make it an in-depth guide where you write 10000 words for every viable comp, you just need to point in the right direction, explain your mindset a little bit, share set-in-stone knowledge (gear/talent/glyph setup), and give some general tips and thoughts. No more, no less.
Back when those guides existed, I would browse other classes guides just to get a better idea of how other classes work. It actually helped me a bit, because I could anticipate certain things better and/or stop them in advance. Sure, I would probably learn it myself even if the guide didn't exist, but that would probably take more time and more losses.
I'm not even mentioning the old matchup guides on AJ back in TBC. We literally had a whole section dedicated to those, i.e. guides about certain comps and how they're played vs other popular comps. It was brilliant.
What do we have today? I'll take the time to open every single sticky on every class forum:
- Gear/Stat Discussion (Season 9) - out of date (since Season 9!)
- DK Basics 4.0 - out of date (since Season 9!). Pretty good example of a guide, it just lacks consistency: it's more a collection of tips, but mostly good, general tips
- Seed's DK FAQ Thread - out of date. Not sure why was this stickied in the first place
- The Dark Simulacrum List - out of date
- Pericth 5 - In-depth Feral Tutorial - out of date
- Resto Druid - Beginners Guide - out of date
- Cataclysm Hunter PvP Beginners Guide - out of date
- Random Hunter Games Thread - a sticky thread where people link their youtube channels. Gotta love hunters
- Frost Mage PvP Guide - out of date. Great example of a guide. I think it could be structured and worded better, but Xandyn had the right idea of trying to teach people something. This is what I think every spec should have
- Mage Gear Guide (S11) - out of date
- Mage Basics - out of date (since Season 9!). This is an example of a bad guide, no offense. Character setup is quickly overviewed, then 20 tips are randomly thrown out (of random, specific situations), and that's the whole guide
- Mage PVP Calculators - out of date
- Cataclysm Mage FAQ - out of date (since Season 9!). The author was even kind enough to edit his post and say that it's outdated at the very top, yet it's still a sticky
- Vanguards Retribution Paladin PvP Guide (5.2) - everybody applaud, a sticky that is up-to-date!
- The Holy Paladin Guide - out of date
- Holy Paladin Basics - out of date (since Season 9!)
- Holy Paladin guide (another one?) - out of date (since Season 9!)
- Priest PvP Scripts and Macros - out of date. The scripts probably still work, but most macros are probably irrelevant in todays game
- Priest Macros - no idea why this is a sticky for 3 years now
- Priests and Arena in 4.0.6 - out of date (since Season 9!)
- Vishas and Hildegard's rogue guide - approved by Reckful - another up-to-date guide
Only one sticky on this forum, one that's actually relevant. Rogues are winning.
- Warlock Spell Pen/Hit for S9 - out of date (since Season 9!)
- Warlock Addons - out of date (since WotLK!)
- Warlocks and Getting started - out of date (since Season 9!)
TLDR: there's only two sticky threads that are up to date at all: Rets and Rogues. Shamans have no guides at all. There's tons of guides and stickies that weren't updated since Season 9 - that's more than 2 years ago! I even found a thread that was a sticky since May 2009, good old WotLK! Come on!
And the worst thing is that all of this outdated information is still getting views, because it's stickied. Because nobody cares, and because there's no new content. It makes me wonder what content editors are doing. No offense guys, but I see some content editors and moderators posting fairly frequently here, yet you can't at least unpin threads that are outdated for several years to not misinform people and to make this very forum look a bit more representative? What do new users think when they see Season 9 info stickied? Uh.
Look at PvE. It's the same game, it has the same problems, but there's so much information about PvE compared to PvP. Go to icy-veins.com and look at the class guides. Remember old Elitist Jerks guides. There's also noxxic.com (I love the concept of this one, but too much bad content). There's a bunch of very popular youtube channels dedicated to boss guides, and they're also available on icy-veins. It takes me a few seconds to find any info I need in PvE. Why don't we have this in PvP anymore?
If we actually help people improve, maybe they will be slightly more interested?
Secondly, forum structure.
Look at "Ask a Gladiator" section. Most threads have 0 replies, occasionally there's a reply, rarely a conversation (mostly trash). No wonder, there's no incentive for a Junkie to ever visit that section. I'm willing to bet that most of the replies in that section are because people randomly bump into those threads via the "fresh threads" stream on front page, "view new content", last post or similar, not by actually visiting the section. It's not that everybody is a douchebag and doesn't wanna help, it's the forum structure not helping that happen.
Class forums, I only visit the warlock and occasionally the DK one, but both are inactive. It wouldn't surprise me if all the other class forums are also inactive - people don't even bother to report sticky threads from Season 9... So I wonder, why are class forums still junkie-only? They could be the perfect place to answer questions and educate people. I used to post a ton on class forums on official forums just because I enjoyed answering questions and helping people, while at the same time refining and reviewing my own knowledge constantly.
Same thing goes for the 2v2/3v3/5v5 subsections of the general discussion section. I don't think they serve any purpose whatsoever anymore. You could drag them out and let non-junkies access them, so there are actual discussions about 2v2/3v3/5v5 matchups instead of being a collection of threads about end of season wintrading.
With some decent moderation, this could work wonders. I don't mean EJ-esque strict moderation. Just remove all the trash replies and warn/ban douchebags. It won't be that hard, really.
Leave general as it is, of course. I'm not suggesting to remove access limitations completely, but right now the non-junkie section is like a ghetto. All I'm suggesting is a bit more integration at the cost of inactive forum sections. Everybody wins.
Speaking of inactive forum sections, another thing that bugs me all the time is all those out of date, useless sections:
- "Blizzard 3v3 Tournament"? TR is down for ages now. And why not call it something like "TR Recruitment" because that's all that it's for? All the actual tournament stream discussions happen in the News threads.
- "Theorycrafting", what's the point of this one? Existed for years, a grand total of 54 topics.
- "NAO Invitational Tournament", when was the last NAO?
- "Content Feedback", I fail to understand what is this for. All the "content" on the site has comment sections for it, why does this section exist? People mistake the "macros" subsection as a forum to ask help with macros, too
I don't think it's healthy when some 20 sections are dead inactive. It sort of reminds you that the game is dead and there's nothing you can do, you know.
And lastly, be nicer to each other. When there's no textual references and all experience and knowledge is shared verbally, it matters more than ever.

There's a concept I think of as "cooldown commitment" when it comes to dealing damage that I think is really important to recognize. Most burst sequences require that you blow a lot of cooldowns before the damage ever arrives. Warrior's have to blow Avatar/Reck/Trinket/Skull Banner/etc. to swifty people. Rogues have to blow shadow blades + dance. Mages on live have to blow trinket+orb+deep freeze+icy veins+alter time. This is the standard damage model for burst.
In 5.2, Mage cooldown commitment for our biggest burst is quite low. We can turtle until Incanter's Ward is fully absorbed (very easy to guarantee), nova or frostjaw someone, and our only serious cooldown we have to commit for max burst is a damage trinket before our first Frostbolt. If you want to be conservative, your first Frostbolt doesn't really need to have trinket popped, you can just cast it and trinket+icy veins afterwards. Once that frostbolt is in the air, then you can decide to commit to the burst attempt depending on what defensives were used in response to the impending frostbolt. Either you use none, and you baited their cooldowns for nothing, or tons, and you blow people up with pom+alter time+deep freeze frostbolt shatters.
We actually don't have a spare GCD in our 'standard' 5.2 burst sequence to use things like Frozen Orb. That can be saved for in between bursts to build up procs and increase our sustained damage. You can risk telegraphing your burst by using it before the first frostbolt, but it's not usually a good call.
The standard burst model is still fairly difficult for most players to deal with, as few of them require incorruptible casts. This results in a lot of forum QQ because the average player can't tell when huge burst is coming based on subtle instant cast CDs, but is fairly easy to figure out if you're paying attention to the right stuff (Did that Mage use alter time with FoF/BF up? Did that Warrior use Avatar+Reck or just Reck? Did that Rogue dance with shadow blades up?). The 5.2 Mage model has the opposite problem: very little cooldown commitment, but interruptible. The result is that we can try, over and over again, to set up game ending burst, and the first time it isn't recognized and prevented, the cooldown barrage follows and you die without being able to control your character.
These kinds of subtleties aren't usually discussed on these forums and this is probably better suited for its own topic, but 5.2 is going to give a lot of people grief because whereas right now, Mage burst is a game ending threat vs. well geared players every 1.5-3 minutes, on PTR right now we're ALWAYS a threat as long as we save our important burst cooldowns for the times when our small cooldown commitment damage combinations are still enough to guarantee a kill when appropriately followed by uncounterable burst.
One could argue that this is the upside of opening up your defensive tree to interrupts, and that there's going to be times now when we get blown up with no ability to react because we committed our Frost tree to a kill attempt, but I'm not sure that's a big enough disadvantage with interrupts being a shorter duration now than they have been in the past when Mages casted (interrupts used to be as long as 10 seconds).
Food for thought!
edit: The more I think about this problem, the more I see the 'frostbolt does better damage than instants' model maybe only making sense in an environment where melee don't have too-high uptime, and healers actually have to cast. But right now, instants STILL need to be very high, or else every game becomes "train the mage" with guaranteed success. Frostbolt as an ideal spell to cast, and instant casts less threatening than they are now, may be a design that has to wait for 6.0. I'm worried for how they'll adjust the class in light of Frostbolt's buffs, there's no clear path towards an effective class that is neither too strong nor too weak at high levels of play, with Frostbolt staying how it is right now.

-Got A low self esteem bro? you can rent my ego
You are a complete tool. Egos do not keep you from sucking. They are the reason so many players DO suck to play with. I'd rather play w/ someone who is a good person vs. a good player any day. Finding someone who is both is what's really rare/special. It's been a long time since I had the pleasure of playing with people who were great at the game and also great people outside of it, I'm confident I will find some players like that again somewhere down the road. So far this season it seems to be one or the other. In the meantime I'd rather play w/ "bads" who are actually enjoyable to be in skype w/ as opposed to douchebags like yourself who think they are sliced bread and sound like nails on a chalkboard.

This post is dedicated to the true greats of World of Warcraft - real legends who crushed their enemies with reckless abandon and extreme prejudice. Good friends, great teammates - competent human beings who have since moved on. People who innovated, had fun and enjoyed victory against all odds. This post is aimed at dismantling someone who means to take up the mantle of greatness in their absence, without reverence or homage - he who would wear the mantle of victory as though it were always his. He who would wear it while all the while knowing it is only granted to him through attrition.
My name is Reed. You may know me better as Reedful, or Reedwise. This post is not about how great I am, merely how terrible someone else is. Please try to understand this not from my perspective, but from the perspective of everyone who has ever truly been the best at this game, found that it offered them nothing once they were at the top, and quit like a man.
Anyways, if you're still reading, you know who I am. Bailamos was a rival RBG team captain during the end of season 9/beginning of season 10, when me and my ragtag band of gangsters were at our prime in the World of Warcraft. To preface, when I say rival, it's important to note that I mean that more literally than figuratively. To be concise, I mean that we didn't view them as competition, and that I'm pretty sure his actual most prestigious arena title earned is, "Rival." - despite his shady helmets on this website.
A little back-story here, before we begin: Bailamos(hereafter occasionally referred to as Jordan) was a Human Rogue on Kel'thuzad. Ironically the guild master of <Girls Should Be Healers> at the time, he had nearly a thousand RBGs played in those seasons alone. Bailamos has been Gladiator one time by purchasing it in season 9(I know this because he and his girlfriend had a fight about the expenditure, which she told me about.) Jordan resided in Kent, Washington with his girlfriend, Katie - I was stationed at Fort Lewis, at the time.
To begin: my team's personal record was 114-7. We trounced every other major team out there. That isn't to say we've never lost to them, but we mostly won. Anyway, we had been playing for almost all of season 9 and season 10 was fast approaching. Real life intervened and some of my less reliable members began to flake out, or announce their upcoming unavailability. My first priority was recruiting a Rogue. We'd never actually played against Bailamos at this point but word had gotten around that they wanted a piece of us, and a piece is certainly what almost all of them would end up getting(unfortunately for Bailamos, his girlfriend would be receiving a very specific piece, over and over again)
Now for the dramatic parts: I made an alt on Kel'thuzad and, as always, my reputation preceded me. He/she invited me to the guild, and began chatting me up in the traditional way a legend is received. Trumpets were sounded, feasts were readied. Normally I'd post chat logs to add authenticity to my tale of sexual duplicity but this was ages ago, so nude pictures will suffice. Anyways, Bailamos starts in with all this flattery and I deployed my usual, never-fail pick up line: "you a lady?"
He said yes, he was a lady. Then we got down to business; I asked if he wanted to come play for me and my guild in RBGs. He said he would transfer if my team was capable of beating his. I accepted with a general sense of chivalry and sexual competition, all the while thinking I was courting a lady whose RBG team was only a few tiers under mine.
Having never backed down from any challenge ever, I accepted. We finally were able to coordinate queuing into each other, and the rest is legend. When we met them in Gilneas post-nerf, they had a few R1s, a pretty strong line up and I was talking with Kathryn ******* on RealID. The game started out, and I ordered my trademarked, "Hannibal ante portas" Gilneas strategy. We had 3 capped them before the fourth minute, and tales of my and Spacejelly'z legendary damage were heralded by the scoreboard.
This next part is really the crux of my story. I was instantly removed from Real ID by Kathryn *******, no one followed up with me about how badly they lost this supposed grudge match, and nothing was mentioned about our gentleman's wager. Then, I took a ten minute break and came back to find that I had a new Skype contact request. I accepted it, and.. the person on the other side of the screen said their name was Katie and asked if I had some time to talk. I ordered my men to stand down, and take a break - I think they all went to get some beef jerky, and maybe bench 225 a few times to get warmed up. She explained that she was Jordan's girlfriend, that she had been watching the entire fiasco between me and him and that she was so disgusted that he had actually pretended to be a girl.
More importantly, though, she said that she had been reading all of it, the entire time, and that she was really intrigued by my writing style and the tales of my glory in ground combat in Fallujah that I had been using to pursue the person I thought I was talking to. "Where do you live?" I inquired.
"Seattle." she said. Less than thirty minutes away.
At the time of this miscellaneous romantic encounter, I was stationed at Fort Lewis, Washington - a magical location that she estimated to be 45 minutes away from where she and Jordan lived. Her actual address came out to be closer to 25 minutes. I am getting ahead of myself, however. I wasn't gonna meet up with just any broad, so naturally I inquired as to the status and measurements of her various womanly assets, and the pictures are as follows:
A solid 7, in my opinion. Anyways, we talked some more and it turned out that she was just fed up with Jordan aka Bailamos. She said he never left their apartment, he spent all of their savings on buying Gladiator that season and that the sex was terrible and constant. I offered to alleviate almost all of her relationship problems with a meeting for coffee and a potential remedy.
The remedy was my legendary wizard dick.
She regaled me with tales on how hanging out with me was like hanging out with someone from The Rolling Stones. She told her mother about me and, at quite a few intervals, she asked if she could watch me PvP from the laptop she brought with her in the hotel room I had to get, because I didn't want to ruin my sheets(threadcount, nah mean.) She blurted out some business about how Bailamos and her had talked about me briefly in between bouts of rabbit-like lovemaking, about how tremendously he was effected by my way with words, and how angry it made him. She was attracted to my numerous Red Helmets, my prowess with a keyboard and my dimples - not to mention my pecs, Bronze Star with Valor, and Land Rover.
She had 8 days before she was going back to live with her parents - Jordan didn't know yet, but she was committed to breaking up with him. I was still on active duty in the infantry at the time, so I was pretty busy. But once I knew she was leaving, she went from friend with benefits to rental car status. I rode her into the ground on several occasions. In my car, standing outside my car, in a hotel room, in my apartment, in a bathroom in a Subway. I mean that seriously Jordan. I want you to know that I banged your girlfriend a lot. Sometimes, I didn't even want to do it again. I'd be tired, and she'd be less than fresh. But I did do it again. Because you though you were better than me, talked shit, and lost like a woman.
Don't get me wrong, however: Kathryn ******* is an absolutely fantastic lay, with the libido of a 13 year old boy(not that I would know anything about 13 year old boys, despite what my fanbase on Korgath had to say.) We had less than a week left until she left you to move back in with her parents, and I literally did things to her that I would never do to a person I thought I'd ever have to see again. I really want you to know that. You were leading RBGs with less talent and skill than I, while I had enough free time to ruin your girlfriend for other men sexually for the next three months and still be better than you at something you devoted your life to.
<<< Of course, things started getting crazy towards the end. She got more emotional, which I wouldn't tolerate, and she got really self-conscious about moving back home with her parents. This part is for you, Bailamos. Because you told people you were better than us: she told me, the night she left, that I could have anything I wanted. I won't tell you what I did, but I will tell you where I did it. I opened the rear door on my Land Rover on an abandoned mortar range on Fort Lewis, and railed your girlfriend for fifteen minutes. I didn't measure, but I'd estimate my thrusting moved my 6000 pound car approximately 15 feet during the ordeal.
And I swear to god, when she said, "I'm going to be sore for the entire plane ride."
"I live my life a quarter mile at a time."
This is when the story gets back to WoW again. So, she left. I don't know what Jordan knew, or didn't know. I got what I came for, and I don't care about that nerd. Anyway, me and my boys kept queuing and one fateful night, in the hallowed Arathi Basin we fought them again. Their leader whose life was ripe with emotional pain from his recent breakup was absolutely waylaid by my team's synergy, strategy and skill. Our Priest, Henry, never even joined the game.
We crushed them by 500 points, 9v10. With two healers.
Of course, they still talked trash that one of their members was bad, or something. It wasn't their A team, yadda yadda. They were actually streaming during the event and were planning out these big strategies revolving around the 9v10s.
I have more pictures if anyone wants them - a lot more. I don't know what more I can do to prove this story is true, but you'll know it's true. Anyone who knows Bailamos will know this story is completely true. If you're reading this, and you sympathize with me and anyone else who has ever witnessed the throne of this game being taken over by not the best, but just who is left: please, copy and paste this, spread this story, save this in the annals of World of Warcraft history. Tell all who will listen how quickly fake champions can lose their titles, prestige and status.
Perhaps you might have noticed throughout my career that I, like Led Zeppelin, have been inspired by Lord of the Rings. You might have even noticed that my avatar is now Gandalf the White. Because I, like all the legends of yesteryear, am moving on. I just wanted the satisfaction of dismounting false king before I, like Gandalf, move on now to the Gray havens - the undying lands reserved for legends.
And to you, Bailamos: you're merely a placeholder; wasting away, playing a game whose expiration has long since come and gone. Authority is not given to you to deny the return of the king, steward. Just remember every time you say you're the best, someone crushed you under their weight with ease, while you had superior numbers and odds.
That's all I want: for you to remember that.
Get crushed, weakling.
That is all.
