#4554243 Food for thought from an oldschool player

Posted tofu on 16 December 2015 - 07:56 AM

Just some words from an oldschool player in response to the state of competitive PvP -

The lacking player base and enthusiasm is the symptom, not the problem.  The problem is a lack of creativity and rewards that are worth hard competition.

Instead of complaining put your heads together and offer solutions-

Easy fixes that could be implemented:

1. Smaller scale bgs.  Think 5v5, 6v6, 7v7.  This alone would solve the problem of getting large groups of people together and staying together, while providing objective based pvp rather than sandbox style (not degrading arena)

2. Better rewards.  More cosmetics, more interesting titles.  Think class specific.  This would give more replayability, desireablility, and uniqueness to earned titles and cosmetics are always desireable (think glowing chest pieces for high ranks.. Huge horns in your helment)

Start with "what would really make me want to COMPETE to earn THIS AWESOME THING?" Work back from that.  I think you'll be surprised what awesome ideas that could be thought up

Not sure why it's not showing but I've played since vanilla and was the only DK in S7 to achieve rank 1 (lafu).  Thinking about coming back for Legion.  Let's make this game fun again.

And prep, so no more double evasion.

I thought we all could agree that self-healing on pure dps classes is absurd, no? Especially in big amounts like that.

#4548378 The biggest problem with WoW

Posted Saikx on 03 December 2015 - 01:12 PM

The addition of Group-/Raidfinder and the removal of Arena-Teams. Guilds/Arena-Teams were what made me resubscribe so many times, they were forged when players had to overcome adversity together. Today, there is no adversity, everyone can do whatever they please on their own, just join level 25 "social" guild to get all the perks, mute alle the retards in guild chat and never let other people bother you again or just group find 2 people for the next fotm comp, play some games if it doesn't work out just ditch them, they're random strangers to you anyways. There is literally no obligation to interact with people properly anymore in a fucking MMORPG.

Might aswell make WoW a singleplayer game for PS4 and Xbox.

Telling someone you did it wrong and showing them what they did wrong are two different things. Step outside the dichotomy and prove spamming damage as a DK is doing it wrong.
Scourge Strike had a lower 'projected' amount of damage, but in a situation where the target wasn't receiving heals, it had a higher amount of 'true' damage. Scourge Striking a target was better than Necrotic Striking if you had a long CC chain on the healer and didn't expect him to get healing off.

#4547196 Cheating, cheating and more cheating

Posted Holypalaswe on 01 December 2015 - 01:52 PM

reposting this thread from battle.net forums that has now been removed due to naming and shaming policy, and also got removed from /r/wow reddit after getting 600 some comments in a few hours as I feel the problem shouldn't be quieted down.

My older brother first introduced me to this game during the original beta. I've played since release and can remember making it to Orgrimmar before anyone else and seeing it completely empty on that thanksgiving weekend many years ago. I've had many fond memories over the 10 years of playing this game, but have become very weary of the state in which it is now. Maybe I'm a hypocrite. Maybe I'm not. I really don't care. The cheating is ruining the competition in this game. Those of you that I've played with believe you are good players and maybe even the best. But many of you cheat. You arrogantly cheat, you laugh about it and don't even give a !@#$ that you ruin the game for everyone else.

The player base is becoming smaller and smaller. Few teams are left at the higher ratings and those that are, are almost all bots. I have repeatedly sent these videos in and yet these players are still active for weeks and months. I'm tired of it.

#4546827 Kittycleave in S3

Posted rob-hype on 30 November 2015 - 05:30 PM

I used to really enjoy kitty. It isn't what it used to be :(
However rshaman kitty works to glad range and possibly higher. If you work on strats get hexes off and swap accordingly it works just fine. Think of it as a ghetto version of turbo.

If you are newer to the feral class I would suggest something more tier 1 viable such as fmp fls.

And for the sake of the community don't kickbot to make a comp work.

Necro might not be that strong if it ends up replacing scourge, especially with all the modifiers scourge is getting.

I hope so, never liked necrotic strike as a concept in the first place.

From another thread (Arancor wrote):

On top of that:
Earth Shield and Link share talent row,
Wind Shear and Grounding Totem share a talent row.

It's just further CC and skill-pruning.

No CC, just damage-spamming. This is Holinkas definition of "I just want the game to be fun". In reality he just wants it to be retardproof.

If these changes go through this will be my last season.

Classes not having a billion different CCs is actually a good thing. Not only does it make the game more fun to play against certain comps because you can actually play your character instead of being in a minute long CC chain, it also puts an emphasis on well timed CCs. On live, some comps can easily afford to overlap CCs and it barely matters because they have plenty other CCs to fall back on.

It also means they can balance the game without having to consider these extremes where one team is constantly one player down so comps such as turbo cleave might not be able to win through sheer damage but might have to do proper interrupt/CC chains to score a kill.

#4541370 Scripted PvP

Posted wodeta on 19 November 2015 - 10:25 AM

WoTLK was far from being balanced but the gameplay allowed players to improvise and the wins always used to feel rewarding.

WoW doesn't have to be balanced it has to be FUN and IMHO the endless chase of balance made the game too homogenized, clearly making it alot less fun and also scripted.
