Wrong.


No, read the topic again, simply trying to avoid all the hate.

Don't reply to this btw, I cba discussing with you. Look at the other posts in this thread and then look at yours. Pretty self-explanatory.



Just play a real comp for once instead of mindless zerg comps like u done since start of s9, geez.

Posted Dakkrothy on 13 December 2011 - 09:38 PM

noskillcomp - meaning u dont actually have to set anything up to score a kill. ALthough you could but atleast when i've faced this comp nothing is cordianted and they're able to score kills anyway. But then again, you can always play a comp good & make it an even better comp nomatter how overpowered or underpowered a comp is.


but its not like comps like MLS RLS or any lock/shaman comp gets any less hate. Since when has anyone cared bout what other people think when you're playing a comp? lol


Do you want people to think you're skilled playing a comp or what?

Q: When does season 10 end and when does season 11 start?

A: Season 10 is scheduled to end on Tuesday November 29th. Season 11 should start one week later on Tuesday December 6th. These dates are still tentative and could change.

Q: What new gear will be available for honor and when?

A: When Season 10 ends the existing ilvl 384 Ruthless gear will become available for honor points for one week. When Season 11 begins a week later new ilvl 390 gear will become available for honor replacing the 384 gear on vendors.

This may seem a bit confusing, but the purpose of the 384 gear being available during the down week is to provide players with a chance to spend their excess honor over the 4,000 point cap on gear instead of having it convert to gold. If you simply want to farm better gear wait until Season 11 starts.

Q: What new gear will be available for conquest and when?

A: When Season 11 starts new ilvl 403 Cataclysmic Gladiator gear will become available for purchase for conquest points. Like the previous seasons there will be an elite version of the gear with cosmetic differences available for players with 2200+ ratings in 3v3, 5v5 or Rated Battlegrounds. This by all indications should be the ultimate PVP set for the remainder of Cataclysm.

Q: Will new crafted PVP gear be available?

A: Yes there will be new ilvl 377 crafted PVP gear available from the various crafting professions.

Q: What about weapons, whats the deal with those?

A: When Season 11 starts the old Season 10 ilvl 378 Ruthless weapons will be available for honor but will require that players first earn a total of 7,250 honor points in Season 11 before they will be eligible to purchase them. Additionally new ilvl 396 Cataclysmic weapons will become available for conquest but will require that players first earn a total of 7,800 conquest points in Season 11 before they will be eligible to purchase them. There will also be new ilvl 410 Elite weapons available for conquest points plus the turn in of the applicable 396 weapon, these elite weapons will require players to earn a total of 15,700 conquest points in season 11 and have a 2200+ rating in 3v3, 5v5, or Rated Battlegrounds before they will be eligible to purchase them.

During the down week between seasons the 378 ruthless weapons are available for honor, but require that you earned at least 7,250 honor during Season 10.

Q: What is going to happen to the conquest points I have saved?

A: When Season 10 ends all conquest points will be converted into honor points, even if this puts you above the 4,000 honor point cap. During the down week between seasons you can spend the excess honor (the honor above 4,000) if you choose to. If you do not spend your excess honor it will be converted into gold when Season 11 starts at the rate of 35 silver per honor point over the cap. It's important to note that while you have 4,000 or more honor you will be unable to earn more until you spend yourself below 4,000.

If you already have full 384 gear and don't want the gold, a good alternative is to convert the excess honor into justice points, you can then convert the justice points back into honor when season 11 starts after you have spent some of your saved honor on new gear. It's important to note though that this conversion has a cost to it on both ends, 375 honor gives you 250 justice points, and then converting back 375 justice points gives you 250 honor, still it's an additional way to "store" extra honor above the cap.

Q: How much honor can I save for next season?

A: You can only directly carry over 4,000 honor points into the new season, however by using justice points as an additional means of honor storage as I mentioned in the previous question you can effectively store an additional 2,500 honor, for an effective total of 6,500.

Q: What will happen to my various Arena and Rated Battleground ratings?

A: When Season 11 begins ALL PVP ratings will be wiped, this includes matchmaking rating (MMR), team ratings, personal ratings, and Rated BG ratings.

Q: How are titles like gladiator being awarded?

A: Titles like gladiator are being awarded exactly the same way they have been in previous seasons. Honestly everyone here on AJ should know how this works by now but if you don't see the link below.

Q: What will I be able to do in the down week between seasons?

A: You will be able to participate in random battlegrounds and wargames (wargames dont count for anything or earn you anything). Rated Arena matches and Rated Battlegrounds will not be available during the down week.

    Green +32 Spell Pen +25 Mastery

Q: Will there be a new Baradin Hold boss dropping season 11 gear?

A: Yes there will be a new 10/25 raid boss named Alizabal available in Baradin Hold after the start of Season 11. She will have a loot table similar to Argaloth and Occu'thar but will drop T13 raid gear and Season 11 PVP gear instead of the items from previous seasons.

For more information about Alizabal visit the WoWpedia page for the boss located here: http://www.wowpedia.org/Alizabal

Q: How are the rewards from random battlegrounds changing?

A: In patch 4.3 the daily random battelground reward is being changed to reward 100 conquest points for a win (up from 25), additionally every subsequent random battleground win after the first will reward 50 conquest points. There will be no limit to the amount of conquest points you can earn this way up to your weekly conquest cap.

Q: How can I best prepare my character for the next season of PVP?

A: My personal recommendations on how to prepare your character for Season 11 are as follows:

- Buy your PVP head and shoulder enchants now, that is 3,000 honor you can farm and spend on your next season gear right now. If you build more than one set of gear for different specs you can buy and save multiple sets of enchants and save yourself to the need to farm them next season, this is a great thing to during the down week.

- Max out your justice and honor points, combined they will give you 6500 available honor points to buy new gear with in Season 11.

- Complete your daily random BG win every day during the down week. During the season 9-10 transition conquest points that were earned during the down week from the random BG daily and from valor to conquest conversions DID carry over into season 10. That of course may change this time, but right now I am operating under the assumption it will work the same way. It's unclear if patch 4.3 will be released the day season 10 ends or the day season 11 begins, so the change to random bg rewards may or may not be in effect during the down week. If they ARE in effect you should be able to farm out a full conquest cap worth of conquest points that will carry over into season 11. If the changes are not yet in effect during the down week you can still get the 25 conquest points per day from the random BG daily, and you should be able to farm your valor cap through heroics which you can then convert into conquest for extra points to start the season with as well.

- Buy all the gems and enchants you need now, that way when you buy a new piece of gear you can gem and enchant it on the spot, throw it on and hop right back into the queue to farm more honor.

- Complete the "Victory in Tol Barad" weekly quest, and turn it in after Season 11 starts. You can still only complete this once during the first week of Season 11, but it will provide you with a quick 200 honor boost without the need to actually fight the battle. Just make sure you spend some honor before you turn in the quest!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

I hope you found this FAQ and brief guide helpful, if you have any questions I did not answer please feel free to ask and I will do my best to answer them for you. If you have any additional suggestions for how players can best prepare themselves for Season 11 please post them as well!

#3510643 Inherent problem with WoW

View PostPowerslave, on 08 October 2011 - 12:32 AM, said:

ye starcraft and dota were balanced from top to bottom and they didn't have shit for longevity yea?

okay whiny babies, maybe he should have specified type of game?

Starcraft/SC2 are pretty much made for the solo player and for competition, despite all of the other concepts involved.

WoW is an MMO. You don't see MMO's being built to cater to the top tier player.

Think about it like this if you will for a second:

How many people do you know who just play WoW for fun? I know quite a lot. Most people I know never raid, never arena, they just like to level up characters with their friends and do BGs. If they ever step into arena, they will likely just go in to have some fun and screw around.

I have a real life friend who would totally be okay going 5-40 in arena if it meant he could play with his friends.

If you catered to the top players in this game, you know what percentage of players you'd be hitting? less than 1% People don't play this game hardcore, they play it for fun.

That guy who plays his 8 arena wins a week and it takes him 30 games to do it, he doesn't know about focus macros, he doesn't know about keeping track of buffs. I mean hell, on a lot of streams I notice a lot of Gladiators who simply don't know half the abilities that classes have or accurately what they do.

If you balanced the game around super technical shit that top players were capable of doing and knew better to do; then the players at the bottom would think things are retardedly overpowered. When I leveled alt Mages, I'll see Druids in the 1500s who I think still don't know you can cleanse magic, so their partners will just eat full roots..

Have you ever played a caster against an 1800 rated shaman who simply doesn't know how to manage shearing/grounding?

I would totally agree that we should have buffs going for the top player; if lower-tier players had somewhere to go to find this information out. Unfortunately, if you come to this website now, you just see constant trolling, whining, and posts about how everyone is going to quit or just play a different game, so there's really not much to learn.

There isn't discussion, there sure as hell isn't tips for improvement, and if anything due to the "elitism" brought on by AJ status, you're pretty much shit on the second you start posting here.

Not above 2k? you're terrible. Not above 2200? terrible. Above 2200 playing any comp with a mage, lock, shaman, rogue, dk, feral, sp? equally terrible. Can't hit 2400? terrible. Can't hit 2600? terrible. Gladiator? Well it's only one time so you suck. 7x glad? Well gl getting rank one terrible.

We can't expect the game to be catered to the highest level player because the highest level players want nothing to do with actually helping others learn. The community at AJ is supposed to be for high level discussion but even that is just dead because people just constantly shit on each other and say how terrible the game is.


tl;dr the problem is with the community, not the game.

#3443335 Anyone really getting queues above 2500 mmr?

Posted Moldran on 18 August 2011 - 09:16 PM

A few reasons that have to do with this:

1) MMR Fix
Teams are playing at much lower MMR nowadays, those teams that are highrated already are just camping rating, a negative side-effect of Blizzard refusing to reset the laddesr, even though everyone was asking for it.
You meet some gladiator teams at 2400-2600 MMR, but most teams are camping at high rating which they got with the original MMR system before it was fixed.

2) Rated Battlegrounds
Many players are just playing Rated BGs atm and don't play arena anymore, especially those who are already safe at gladiator or rank 1 rating.


Teams who got rating before the stealth MMR fix, are most likely going to sit on it until season end. They can get gear from RBGs (or 2s even) and don't have to play anymore. Gladiator-Cutoffs are going to be much lower this season than last season, e.g. 2650 instead of 2850 on some BGs.


#3436005 An organized approach

Posted Unappealing on 14 August 2011 - 06:06 PM

Throwing this out there, just kinda came to mind and by no means is a fully developed idea - as I'll be essentially making it up as I go.

What if we approach imbalances in a more direct manner? (I'll come back to this in a minute)

I've personally completely given up on writing on the battlenet forums as I'm sure most of you have as well, because there is no point - as far as expecting any decent discussion or anyone of consequence and an ability to act on them, actually reading them. The reason I'm pointing that out is, mostly because of that fact, we all use arenajunkies, but blizzard does not, effectively making everything we post here useless (as far as expecting something to get done) - when it comes to complaints about pvp and imbalance.

This annoys me, because the most skilled and knowledgeable wow players are all right here, its an ingenious melting pot of good ideas which is constantly updating and more accurate then anything blizzard could put together on their own.     If blizzard at any point in time ever has any remote intention of balancing things they need this, our voice, and any serious attempts to do so without it is well, silly.

All right so this brings me back to the more direct approach.
Arena Junkies should create a new fixed thread, dedicated strictly to imbalances - with heavy heavy moderation to keep out the garbage, and with a fixed structure - a general guideline to follow for those making a post. Anyone making a post would need to include a very descriptive break down of the issue, suggestions for fixing it, and do it without class bias.

Obviously people post all the time about specific imbalances, and most of the time are very descriptive and are something blizzard could use if they read them, but its just not useful because its not organized enough for blizzard to ever be able to see it all. Big names in wow often post very detailed threads on here about their respective class, like talbadar for example did a pretty awesome breakdown of new things being introduced about the priest class and possible changes that should be done, vileroze did the same with mages, just to name a couple examples. But did blizzard ever read these? Probably not.

So the idea is, make a new thread, and make it a quality thread. But most importantly, relentlessly re post on the battlenet forums, it'll be the official official thread of complaints. It'll be well done, and we wont let it be ignored by blizzard, post it as an ultimatum almost - "read this, take it seriously, respect us as a valuable bank of knowledge, act on what we say, or this game is going to die;)". At this point the way we approach this needs to change, as its clearly ineffective, Blizzard needs a kick in the balls, so lets kick them in the balls, and if they do nothing, well I guess that settles it once and for all;).

I'm not trying to be overly serious or complain about things, just bored with all of us wasting our time when what were saying is not being taken seriously or not even being read to begin with. This is like a last ditch effort to reach the lazy pricks at blizzard;)
So arena junkies, got what it takes? Up for a little push and shove? Lets stop being ignored.
