#4394748 Looking for feedback from other Arena Junkies

Posted Wutangrza on Yesterday, 08:07 AM

I really enjoy 3v3 arenas in WoW, and I want to see them be the best they can possibly be, and I've been thinking a lot on how best to improve them. I made a post on the arena forums (I know visiting them is awful), but if you've got some time, check it out.

If you agree with these points and think it may help to improve the future of WoW arena, please consider tweeting it to Blizzard so that someone that matters might actually see it. Thanks!

#4391962 Bailamos Fleed the RBG scene after tournament

Some of you people are so fucking two-faced its disgusting how much this game can mean to you when you aren't even playing in the only part that has a small amount of relevance.

These threads are always like a kick in the head.

It's sad to remember that this game was easily a mile better than any other game out there.

I used to be able to play this game for like 15 hours a day in Vanilla/TBC without getting bored at all, now I can barely do 20 minutes without wanting to log off.

#4390084 Your Tournament Sucks.

Posted Capstone on 19 February 2015 - 07:36 PM

i did not watch even a moment of this tournament because i don't believe in validating the remaining rbg tryhards, who will jump at any chance to gain arbitrary internet recognition by all means necessary

apologies to the few of you on each of these teams who are legitimate players propping up a wagon of mongrels, but not that many apologies, since you know as well as i do the kinds of retards you are carrying across the finish line so that they can hop off your back the moment you lunge your nose, proclaiming that they are an rbg master and an accepted and respected player of your ilk and have your phone number and totally hang out at your place and sometimes braid your hair, etc.

noting that i did not watch a moment of this tournament, i do have a few things to say:

this tournament could (should) have been a good thing, and you guys did to it what you do to everything you touch, which is to turn it into radioactive shit. it's not enough to simply make the rbg tournament feces, because that would imply only the people participating in it are affected by how shit it is, but apparently it was so terrible to watch that the entire audience, and even i, who avoided it, am contracting aids from the postgame discussion; thus: radioactive shit

i know from having spoken to members of each of your teams that none of you are particularly happy with your culture, yet here you are, having a group therapy session, again, in the most public of places

recall that although i know many players mock certain streamers for being overly nice, enthusiastic, or "fake", what these people have actually done is contained many problems they have with other players somewhat and resisted the urge to resort to desperate maneuvers to attack them either through their streams, arenajunkies, or of course, their routers. they have built a culture, in the worst time in the history of wow, where you can play arena safely at the top level without having to worry about being ddosed (so long as you pass the gate of bubble tryhards), and they can share this with other people via twitch, tournaments, etc. LOTS of these players have problems with other people, and although they are mocked for not doing what you guys are doing now, their culture has caused at least one portion of our game to not deteriorate into shit. i would recommend at least maintaining the facade of a more positive environment in the future, at least for the couple days long enough to have a tournament

i don't know what texture healing is. do not explain it to me, i am not interested

i do feel bad for those of you who tried hard in this tournament to make it work and got flushed along with the rest of the cesspool of the rbg community or the people who organized this tournament, who are absent from these discussions (and i'm sure do not have posting rights on arenajunkies despite the requirements being lowered to 1400 in one bracket and a grand total of 20 wins in arena on any character), but i would also encourage you to be less hateful toward these people, because to their credit they are at least trying to do something good - not everybody who wants to help the wow community has to have the nerd pedigree that the rest of us do

in conclusion, you knew it was going to be aids, i knew it was going to be aids, even the average casual player knew it was going to be aids. none of us can be mad that after watching or participating we have chronic diarrhea and are developing genital ulcers

There were problems, shit happens. Just have to get over it and move on. I had a lot of fun playing the games, and look forward to the next one.

The responses here are very interesting. Some people seem to excuse the many failures of this tournament because of personal negative feelings towards Bailamos, the perceived good intentions of the organizers, or because the rulings went in their favor.

It comes as no surprise that Unseenz can forgive the corrupt and biased decisions of the admins, and I laughed when he casually summed it up to "irregularities in ruling".  I can assure you his team had a completely different attitude on the PTR when the decisions weren't going in their favor, with the first games ruled 2-0 eHeroes.

Also interesting that Unseenz brought up the Bailamos RBGFL, because his team claimed to drop out for the same reasons we dropped out of this tournament. The only difference was that the RBGFL rules were concrete and strictly followed (Bailamos made a smart trade right before roster lock and they were salty). In this poorly ran tournament, the admins ignored their written ruleset, and even tried to make up bogus rules and apply them retroactively to completed games.

For a tournament that was admittedly inspired by Bailamos' World Series of RBGs, they sure didn't take very many notes. That event was completed without a hitch, with both parties exhibiting respect and fairness. This tournament was ruined by its own staff.

There is audio evidence of Reinhart (main admin) conspiring against us with the opposing team. That is simply inexcusable.

Our team had over five disconnects the first time we played EOTS on Friday. We informed the staff that EVERY grip knockoff was causing a disconnect, expressly against their rules, but they didn't care. They chose to leave it in the rotation. Our team practiced countless hours perfecting our positioning on the map, finding spots where we could heal while avoiding the knockoffs. The staff complimented us for this positioning on Friday in our games vs Datacus. Then, Sunday, AFTER our win, they called it exploiting and asked us to replay. Compliment us on Friday, penalize us on Sunday. What a joke.

Could we have replayed and won? There is no doubt in my mind. But we shouldn't have had to. We won fair and square. I don't think anyone here is trying to argue that healing EOTS from the bottom is exploiting. The majority of the stream chat was in complete disbelief. Reinhart was going to use any excuse at that point to make us replay our win.

This is the best part: the tournament had a panel of four referees to decide on challenges. After the tournament we discovered all of them unanimously ruled in our favor, that the series should be 2-1 and move on to the next map. Guess who overturned that decision? Our angry russian friend with a proven disdain towards Bailamos. If I had any doubts about withdrawing from the tournament, this removed them.

Make no mistake, Unseenz's team did not want fair games. They were happier taking a DQ win than trying to beat us in a fair series. We were happier dropping out than continuing to be on the receiving end of a corrupt admin's vendetta. We are the better team, and we were willing to prove it by continuing to beat them on Warsong Gulch and other maps.

The golden rule definitely applies here. You run a tournament with a toxic admin making decisions, you will be met with toxic disgust from the community and its viewers.

I've already had one of the admins apologize to me personally, and I appreciate that, but you could have easily avoided putting yourself into a position where you needed to.

You chose the map Eye of the Storm knowing about knock D/Cing people without being able to connect back into the game. The reason you had healers at the bottom was to avoid being kicked out of the game from getting D/C knocked. So the "texture healing" only ever became a problem when the nature of that positioning was to remain zoned into the game while you could attempt to D/C knock as many people as you could to get a cheated win. You thought to yourself "if they are going to beat, me, they're going to have to do it with me cheating".

Vampz from Data's team experienced the same issue towards the end of one of the EOTS matches, and the only reason you were able to TIE the game was by him being completely out of the game by being D/C knocked.

You could have picked a map with no issues to finish off your 0-3 performance, but instead wanted to create a smoke screen on the last game to avoid massive public humiliation.


got asked to post this, have fun boys
