Posted Unappealing on 18 September 2014 - 10:19 AM

I'm not far off when i say the vast majority of people with posting rights on AJ are smart people, or at least view themselves that way. It isn't an easy to thing to be a competitive player in wow, simply an observation that most of you guys aren't complete morons, and in fact are quite the opposite, we are some genius level IQ sons a bitches.
Maybe this is an argument geared towards the intrawebs in general, the chip off the old block ivy league mentality that online anonymity lends itself to, but;

Are we fucking good at arguing or what? I mean damn, we're fucking good at arguing. We are next level f5 spamming elitist mawfuckas who don't take internet shit from no one, i mean no one. And fucking eh were proud of it aren't we? It's all about the pride, the inflated E-ego we've all acquired in one way or another along the way to the top .05% of wow players. Oh sorry, whats that? The top 0.0001% of players in your case, ahh that's right, my apologies, truly i meant no offense. Oh? If you had warn a condom i wouldn't be here right now? Plus i fucked up my cyclone missed my interrupt and now were no longer real ID friends? sweet, good talk. Probably for the best, a win win I'm sure. Peeerfect.

There is some next level trash talk belittling condescending garbage that is spewed directly or indirectly, passive aggressively or full blown in your face homing missile type shit. We know just exactly how to push each others buttons in the most E-impressive ways possible... for the most part. We are impressively defensive, unrivaled in our E-self confidence, and mercilessly uninviting.

Our cliques are tighter than high school, we are lifting bro and we'd easily beat the shit of out Liam Neeson in Taken. Empathy? pff wtf does that even mean anyways. Taking constructive criticism? pff wtf is this sacrilege. Giving a helpful hand? bro you been on AJ in the last 4 years?

You are sharks, not unlike them boyz in wall street. Str8 to da top, you don't get there unless you think you belong, but you handsome son of guns are positive you belong. And yah kinda be acting like weee little dicks about it. Just a weeeeeeee little bit. I know I know, some of you be some hardened old school seen it all hardcore OGs. This critic may be old news, something you may have heard once or twice. The wow community having a reputation as a cancer poison aids pool of elitist douchebaggery doesn't phase you, fuck it dude guy lets grab some pop corn.

There are exceptions to the rule, but odds are regardless of what you think its probably not you. I am probably one of the nicest dudes to ever play this game, but i have been a top notch a-hole to more than my fair share of people in game for no reason what so ever except i could. I was better than they were in game, I was better than they were at text based fistacuffs, and it gave me a false sense of some sort of cancer aids good feeling that i could only get from being a complete piece of shit to another HUMAN BEING.

TLDR: when you're an elitist prick, generally you are missing the point, of just about everything worth while in life. Maybe yah all can take a step back, take a peak in the mirror, and work on it.

Haven't made a post on AJ in a very long time, but i felt inspired after a little exchange i just had with tosan.

i am the first to admit i am on the outside looking in, always have been. Especially as of late, i haven't played at high ratings or with high rated people in a very long time - fuck i haven't played at all in almost a year. This perspective i have may not come from the same experiences as yours, but generally its probably very similar to how you ALL feel, about each other, and undeniably about yourselves.

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

i'd just like to point out some things that are actually wrong with the tournament instead of this random bashing

let's compare the routes some teams had to take to the tournament

Posted Image

so, for the HLS to qualify, they had to play mostly against teams that either qualified for the tournament or were capable, and the teams they played against had already gone through a tough bracket

Posted Image

i don't mean to bash this god comp, it's not that they're not good - but they played against my mom. i didn't even know she signed up

even on the back end of the bracket, they are queuing into teams that they have a favorable matchup against

let's shift focus to the 3 amigos, whose place in the tournament is being questioned in this thread:

Posted Image

Posted Image

they miss the tournament by a last round loss to a team that gives them a quite unfavorable matchup, despite most of the wizards qualified being inept against MLS

Posted Image

here's a screenshot of the FRONT end of the loser's bracket. thank god my mom didn't have to play in this bracket or she would have had to make a hunter just to compete

what's the important part of all of this? WoW tournaments are unlike other tournaments - the strengths and weaknesses of some teams are much more significant than in other games/sports. there are unfavorable conditions and matchups in almost any game, but not anywhere near as significant as they are in WoW

for qualifying purposes, a strict elimination bracket is potentially the worst way to determine which teams should enter a tournament

the ladder is decent at sorting this out, although as we have seen on live and on the TR, it's susceptible to wintrade and selective queuing

a better solution would probably be round robin or any other tournament format other than the ones that have been presented. this idea has been proposed before, but for some reason we are still playing blizzcon in the patch of a future expansion and qualifying teams based on who can wintrade better, knows a dev, or plays against my mom in a tournament bracket

P.S.  Everyone knows you're a faggot and no one likes you and have fun getting last place at regionals

I've actually made a lot of friends this season, I don't think anyone hates me or thinks i'm scum or thinks I cheat or thinks i'm toxic for the game. I'm definitely not a faggot as i've had a girlfriend for the past 3 years. I've also graduated College last year and working in my field currently so even if we come last place there it's not the end of the world, I got to meet up with friends I play with and against online and got to go to Manhattan on for a paid vactation.. And i'm a goddamn Ret paladin so there's a factor of respect given by the community for making it this far.

I'm looking forward to regionals and meeting EVERYONE now since your shit face isn't there. I'm even looking forward to meeting my old friend Dhorothy and Kaska. From what Dilly has told me Kaska has really redeemed himself. Literally the only player i've ever had a problem with is YOU and it's hilarious watching everyones opinions of you unfold. Even my girlfriend thinks your a fucking retard from what everyone says about you and she doesn't even play WoW.
