Really good things : Arena became region wide and pve gear has no impact on pvp

Really bad things : Everything else (cd stacking , dispell cd , cluster pets , instant cc, gamebreaking bugs live for 2 months, bos , feathers , positioning becoming non factor,half classes having extra trinkets, 4 gapclosers from wariors, monks being most stupid and op thing ever introduced into game with honorbuddy orbspam, haste got to point where its impossible to kick sotf clones or fear with ds up, elemental shaman being gods,passive dmg and healing, backpaddaling healers being unkillable untill dampening, gate , symbiosis and list goes on and on)

Ok so the first game vs bloodx his team we shouldn't have lost, I got spell reflected on my silence while I had 3orbs 2mind spikes and shadowfiend and if you saw the vod or game you would have noticed that zeepeye went to 200k without me beeing able to touch him because of the meta reflect silence. Then I show my face for 2 seconds and i get a 84k lightning bolt, 90k lava burst, 73k lightning bolt and randomly flop 'good game desserved to lose right?'

Also the dreamhack staff and blizzard staff told us we where allowed to use everything that was currently in the game and like bluckstack said 'sac/sl' was a better option to go for. + I quote bloodx when a thing like this happend in a previous game 'i would use anything to win the game'.

And as the great and mighty pojke said #playtowin right?

Compared to what we used to see from wow tournaments, this tournament is run on time, the breaks are fairly short, the brackets are displayed often (although the information should be more easily available) and the players more or less represent the top players from the current ladder.

So this tournament is a success imho

Since there has been a lot of drama recently, I figured I would make a TL;DR thread for those of you that have successful real lives and can't sit on ArenaJunkies 24/7.

The North American Regional Qualifiers:
  • Hosted by ESL (the same company that organized the holocaust)
  • 2800 players qualify but only 50 Teams signed up
  • No seeding and random placement meant some popular teams eliminated each other right of the bat
  • Zero interaction with Blizzard, even after the ESL website wasn't working
  • People suspect Blizzard will be asking for some of the money they paid ESL back, since ESL apparently completely forgot that they were supposed to hold this tournament
Vanguards team gets knocked out because of a "no-show":
  • Timestamp does show that Vanguards team was almost 30 minutes late to their match
  • They claim they had no idea the time they were supposed to play
  • Poor organization and almost no help from ESL admin, many people think they didn't deserve the loss
  • Vanguards, being the least confrontational person in existence, made a nice forum post saying how he is slightly angry that he missed out on a chance for $40,000 USD
Jah's team gets knocked out and tries to get back in on a technicality, twice:
  • Claims his first loss was not actually the "real" game and only practice
  • Screenshots show his team agreeing it was the real game
  • Some people claim that after his second loss he tried to contact tournament admin and get it changed
  • Talbadar is "disappointed" in jah
  • Jah, unsurprisingly, calls everyone "retards" and hasn't been seen since
Wizk's team cheats and has other players, not on their roster, play:
  • By far the biggest drama generating event of the tournament
  • Wizk, Jakenotezz, and Random rogue decided to play RPS in tournament
  • Upon tournament brackets coming out, they realize they will have to fight comps that are strong against them
  • Wizk realizes that it would be too obvious to ddos his opponents, he determines he will have to come up with another way to cheat
  • Wizk replaces his rogue and rsham with an rdruid and mage who are not on his team roster and then wins multiple games (it is assumed that the mage was played by, "Piecez," and the druid by, "Rynd")
  • People (obviously) realize what is happening and he gets disqualified for cheating
  • Wizk then cries, makes a 40 minute video about why he didn't cheat, no one believes him
  • Jakenotezz, then makes a post on AJ admitting that they cheated, apologizing, and says he only did it to bang his 18 y/o e-girlfriend when he goes to New York
  • Wizk then claims he is too good for this community
  • Wizk locks in his spot next to Xandyn in the "top 5 scummiest wow players of all time"
  • Randomroguex is mad that no one knows who he is, doesn't understand the concept of why cheating is bad, and is apparently a part of some "elite cheaters club"
Multiple teams Disqualified after the tournament ends based on their geographical location:
  • Apparently it was easier to allow these people to play in the tournament and then disqualify them after they won
  • Raises multiple questions about the outcome of the tournament, since the teams who got DQ'ed knocked people out of the tournament
  • The dominant team of Jeff, Barry, and Twochainz is rumored to be one of the teams DQ'ed
Avangelyne proves he is really weird:
  • Made multiple weird posts about having a girlfriend
  • Multiple awkward tweets involving, but not limited to: old memes, obscure Norwegian cover bands, and History channel TV shows
  • All of this is okay though, because according to him, he "has a lot of friends"
Former 3rd place Blizzcon team, "PvP Live" replaces healer the night before qualifiers:
  • but apparently forget to tell him he is off the team
  • Famous monk, "Dannycarey" is replace by other famous monk, "Verdantstorm"
  • Novoz and Thugonomicz imply that Dannycarey is part of something (Illuminati?)
  • Dannycarrey still hasn't run out of mana
Glinks:
  • Surprisingly, Glinks didn't cheat or try to ddos anyone
  • Nice work, Glinks
World of Warcraft PvP Designer, "Holinka" no where to be found:
  • A week has gone by since his last sighting
  • Police have decided to end the search
  • His family stays hopeful
Arena Junkies:
  • Datacus tries really hard to get some free rep, fails miserably
  • For the first time in over a year, people are capped out on giving rep
  • If you point out any scummy things that friends of the moderators have done, you will be getting an infraction
  • Flavour is still making stupid posts
  • Dillypoo's insults have been getting noticeably better over time, possibly hitting puberty soon?
  • Bigmoran tries to dispel ddos rumors by threatening to ddos anyone who talks about it
  • Thugonomicz believes that Arenajunkies.com is actually "Horse cocks"
  • Bailamos dropped in to insult Jakenotezz for having an e-girlfriend, the irony is palpable
  • More wintrading in EU, no one is surprised
  • The "scummy dozen" continue to rep each-other in an attempt to make it seem like they have some community support
  • Ayra is still black, and still european

Sucks to hear man, lots of ppl seem to get screwed.

I also got disconnected after 1 match in my second series (no one's fault really, turns out it wasn't ddos just my internet picked the worst day ever to fail miserably).

So my team didn't actually lose a legitimate series to get knocked to LB cause of net, then in LB get cheated by wizk's team, so in total my team lost 0 legit series and not even close to going, huehue.I'm not that bothered since my team was last minute and I'm not very confident in that comp (without a priest anyway) but I'd still rather lose legitimately.

Not trying to attention steal in your thread, just adding to the reasons the tournament was a disaster.  

Sorry for your situation, Danny.  Really sucks your teammates randomly replaced you last minute too.

yeah but you shouldnt be there in the first place clown


#4211191 How I got screwed out of the tournament

Posted Talbadar on 18 September 2014 - 06:31 AM

It's difficult to be a teammate that only looks at each game as a way to improve themselves or to improve your team strategy. It took me a long time as a player to get better at this as I used to rage at my teammates for playing badly when a game was their fault. Statements made that let somebody know the game was their fault, even if indirect, do nothing but hurt your team.
"idk why you trinketed that fear"
"you die without blocking every time dude"
"I played with so and so and they did this" (I used to do this so much.)
These comments never help, so if you want to become a part of a long-lasting team you will learn to say more helpful things to your teammates.

If your teammate is too full of themselves to think they had no fault in the game, then it's time to find somebody else to play with or try to set them straight. The game should never be lost with "I don't know I feel like I played that perfect on my end. I mean I did the most damage, most CC, etc." Sure even if you think you played perfect there's no reason to mention this to dishearten your team.

I was in a situation with Novoz a long time ago where we felt forced to replace Drmayonaise in Season 8 before regionals. He was getting mad every single game we lost to RLS which was a near impossible matchup for us that lasted several minutes. He's changed a lot as a person since that time thankfully and I still play with him from time to time. I'm sure Dannycarey knows his druid isn't the best just like anyone knows that their alt isn't the greatest. It's not like I log onto Starbadar and convince myself that I'm the world's greatest mage. This whole situation with Dannycarey's replacement makes it seem like they don't care about him at all. I know for a fact that he is one of the best healer monks in the game and it's not like he rages at his teammates or doesn't talk about what's going on. I know Sharpstorm is a great Monk too and probably an equal replacement, but ditching your Blizzcon healer from last year at moments notice is simply not cool.
