(guy has a HUGE ego)

...

He is just well connected and has friends carry him to rank one on his semi under geared rogue and thats the truth


The worst thing you get from being even remotely good at WoW is that sense of accomplishment ( which is entirely unwarranted for ), and from that comes the huge ego. Every "good" PvP-er I've known during the time I played this game had developed some sort of a ego due to succeeding at a relatively simple game ( honestly, looking back at it, this game requires zero active thought put into it while you play - it's just a simple set of mechanical memories and reactions you've attained while mindlessly pushing buttons, session of playing after session of playing ). Most of these players put themselves on a throne and consider themselves untouchable by the general population, and when they lose to some lower team then they blame it on composition, season, class, "gg blizzard", etc - I should know, I was apart of that hive mind once.

And honestly, that's what people on power in the real world do with their friends as well, no idea what'd you expect.

WoW created a complete social system inside of a game, I'm sure few psychology students had their fair share of fun examining it.

He is too busy making thousands while the rest of us talk about him. In hind site, were all silly geese.

I can't comment with certainty on this one provided I'm not following WoW scene for a while now, but let's look at it this way. WoW is a game that sports 10 million regular subscribers, and out of those 10 million subscribers, I'd say that people who regularly earn money by playing WoW barely break the number of 200 ( and when I say regularly, I mean regularly - I'm not talking about arena glad boosts that happen once every 6-7 months, and even when they do happen, they're quite crap money ( I earned approx 1000 euros during TBC and WoTLK by selling Gladiator boosts by advertising on various account trading/selling forums and such, and that's lunchbox money compared to real work in real world you can do instead of sitting infront of your screen, playing someone elses char to a pixel title ) ).

You can't earn money on tournaments because there aren't any that aren't organised by players themselves to help keep themselves entertained; streaming WoW is honestly crap when you have people who stream vintage games like fucking Space Invaders, Commander Keen and Doom - and still get more viewers than WoW players, and only a select few have sponsors. Few top notch guilds, Swifty, Towelie, Reckful and maybe a few others may pretty well be the only people who actually earn a few bucks off the back of a dying dinosaur that is WoW.

Compare that to this for a good measure - when you finally graduate, and if you work extra for that masters degree ( or even a doctorate ), you'll earn shitloads of cash ( provided you picked a decent field and a decent job ) for the remainder of your life, and you won't even have to put much effort in it if you have a easygoing boss.


So really.. Hats off to WoW players who actually earn a few bucks, and even further props to those few who managed to attract some sheiks to sustain them while they play WoW - but if they don't have a plan with their life and education while playing online games and thinking they're the smart ones now, ask them who's the silly goose in 10 years time when they're flipping burgers or doing heavy physical labor.

Apsco:

Fact of it is, you're dealing with people that have been doing this for nearly 5 years. Speaking as someone who has experience, they don't view it the same way that you do - if you're even telling the truth. To them you're a random Duelist and I know if I saw you on the top spot anywhere, I'd assume that transferring there for the title was worth my time and money. People are going to do the most shady thing imaginable at the very last second when it comes to getting R1 no matter how many times they've gotten it before.

Kollektiv especially is like a literal wizard at stuff like that. He can compile lists of players, keep track of them and coordinate queueing and who he queues into at a literal professional level. It wasn't possible to compete with him back in the day on Vindication for those precise reasons. Literally, an Asian wizard who instead of spells casts an omniscient presence over all teams who might queue into him.

When you're dealing with people like that(especially people who are being paid thousands of dollars to complete a R1 boost) you need to be willing to do anything to compete with them. Your bench simply isn't deep enough. There's no point in getting R1 if you can't hold it, and they're not going to leave a team sitting at #1 for no reason.

There's only one way to become champion: never fucking lose. If you really deserve R1, you should behave like a true legend. Draen for example would series anyone who'd be foolish enough to face him, and queued every day even though he was risking potential 30 point losses and gaining 1-3 points per grueling, sometimes risky win. Eventually closing out the season 150 points above the next team who had no such recourse to take, no one could say anything to him. That was the definition of a closed battlegroup.

If you were really the best, you'd spam queue and get R1 no matter what. Unfortunately nobody who plays this game any longer is that good/that lucky to have their class fit into a good comp, so your only option is to do what they know they must do: cheat the system. These people have been doing this for long enough to get a degree in it, and they're better at it than you are.

Let your inexperience serve as a lesson: R1 isn't over until it's over. If you truly feel you deserve the title and the glory, perhaps you should find a way to make yourself immune to these actions next season. As for selling R1, this community is completely dead and there's truly no harm in it. I don't think you should pretend it bothers you so much.

A lot of people ask me if I stream and stuff so I recorded some games versus some pretty good teams on ptr.  Mainly shadowcleave games but some other cool comps too. Give feedback if you want, not really meant to have good editing

This is sad, but is the truth here is a video from the ptr, and a link to my forum post on blizzard ptr forums  Please post shortly after you watch the video, or try out the ptr lets attempt to make a difference blizzard has shown signs of looking at pvp much more this expansion.

I ended up posting this later in the thread, but I figured I would readdress it here at the start,

The thing you all don't realize is that we are complaining about this for a reason.

If you didn't know warriors were op because of 5 things last season.
Shockwave short cd
defensive stance 25% op
dmg cd stacking
warbringer stun op swaps
other classes were not on par

5 huge things are happening this patch
shockwave 40sec cd up from 20
defensive stance to 15% balanced
warbringer dr's with normal stuns rendering it useless
other classes are getting buffed while we get NERFED
overpower costs 10 rage causing us to go to battle stance and take 25% more damage this patch

So we are plee'ing for 1 of the 5 changes because we don't want to be useless in arenas if those points don't make since to you think about why you died to a warrior team it is because of warbringer/shockwave/dmg cds/ and warrior was not a target to kill not only because of d stance but in conjunction with second wind, and shockwaves at low hp it made us amazing, and another reason you lost is because that kill slipped away because warrior shockwaved again 20sec later. WITH ALL THE CHANGES COMBINED IF WE HAVE TO TAKE 25% more DAMAGE while we are trying to do anything with all those nerfs combined with other class buffs you can call us useless in arena.

We are not plee'ing for 25% d stance a nerf to 15% is good, but overpower basically f's us makes us have to go battle to do any dmg, but we literally will take to much damage to be viable.


#3822414 Shockwave

Posted Limity on 16 December 2012 - 07:46 PM

View PostPinka, on 16 December 2012 - 01:29 PM, said:

Stop qqing about shockwave. Rogue stun chain with rng mace stun poison is 10x more annoying. Blizz should actually increase DRs on stuns. So ppl can't chain them into you endlessly and you just die. Trinket or not. THAT is the whole problem.

Sometimes in a random bg nowadays you get gripped into a random bot group and you catch stun on stun on stun on stun and just die. I don't blame shockwave on that. But Hoj(especially Hoj), Shadowfury. Mr.random rogue opening on me wile enemy team blazes me down. To think of it. Shockwave is actually the easiest to dodge since you can actually miss it in the first place.

Starting to compare shockwave to the other stuns in the game is just stupid. Omg shadowfury. So does that mean warriors get a no cooldown castable fear too?

QQing ppl like this made blizzard give everyone interrupts, stuns and ms effects to begin with. Stop comparing apples with oranges. And see classes as a whole picture.

I want to skin you alive.
