#3937444 Sweeping Strikes nerfed =(

Posted Braindance on 11 September 2013 - 03:04 AM

Wars are good on 2s but they suck vs monk/mage+priest (but I'm pro so I got 2500 #yolol)

In 3s however.......


I think we are one of the best melee (perhaps the best for some comps). Melee this season are relatively close in terms of strength in a rather good spot.

So good season, I welcome thee


#3936758 Tryhards of Season 13

Posted Bigmoran on 10 September 2013 - 09:01 AM

This is a really untimely occasion for me to post this as I'm recieving tons of criticism in other threads but I think it would be a nice abd refreshing to collect all the R1 drama in one thread. I wrote most of this thread in advance, so some of the information might be dated.

Hey ladies and gentlemen, this type of thread hasn't surfaced on Arena Junkies in quite some time and seeing as this HOPEFULLY will be the last season for generally scum-baggery, I hope my post gets the attention it deserves. Most of my information from below comes from conversations about US ladders and focuses heavily on things I've heard through the grapevine. If you are a friend of mine and are on this list, no need to fret, this list is but a post in jest, and one that I hope will not ruin friendships (pls forgive me).

DK: Vigarista. Although not known by many, this Brazilian backpeddling superstar has made an appearance on a few BGs this season (namely Rampage, Retal, and Ruin). He seems to follow with the other Brazilian gods, playing PHD with the likes of Rynd and Beilgatta. For whatever reason, his Retal team decided to que LSD at the same time Rositajones was queing shatterplay. This led to a devastrating tank. Vigarista,  who was previously on the roster, backpeddled away into darkness to never be seen again.

DRUID: Once whipped by popular streamer Bamfxo, Lickerz, has been a realiable asset to the 5v5 bracket. Often playing with Kaska, Lickerz is present on five different BGs, all in the pursuit of the Tyrannical gladiator title.

Honorable mention go to Coolbears, the 15 year old Jewish Jungle-cleaver who literally combined rosters with himself after getting farmed on Ruin.
(http://us.battle.net...ns One African/) I don't actually know how many BG's he is on but I would venture to say it's more than the amount of hair he has on his armpits.

HUNTER: A prolific poster on this website, the winner of our try hard hunter goes to Reedz. Playing on at least three BGs, Reedz quickly became master of the 5v4 and 5v3 brackets. Unfortunately for Reedz, his razer naga dream team took some devastating losses on the Sunday night before season end, leaving only a trail of tears, a discarded box of Hot Pockets, and a 19 Button Expert Gaming Mouse that can be yours for the low price of $68.99. Merc out.

Posted Image


MAGE: Also known as SJ, probably short for his Sloppy Job at playing fire, the try hard mage of this season is Spicychopz! This kermit the frog voiced washed up bong is playing on five different BG's with little to no competition.

Sharing this award is Jahmilli, the highest rated player in World of Warcraft. Jahmilli was able to take time out of his role in the upcoming movie Insidious: Chapter 2 to get some titles. He climbed to the top of the ladder on a few BGs, patching together a Frankenstein lineup of  Goonies to 2800+.

Honorable mention goes to Rositajones. This flamboyant Living Bomb god has somehow convinced Jahmilli that he is worth carrying. He is playing on 2-3 different BG's going for R1. Though a tip of the hat to his team for achieving the highest 3v3 rating in the world.

Posted Image


MONK: There really is no try hard monk that I can think of. Dannycarrey is undoubetly the best monk that currently plays but I think by default this award should go to Jordons, the previous ring leader of the Cataclysm wintrading cartel (Jordons, Perry, Nevz). This season he will be adding another red helmet to his collection on Arena Junkies. It is sad that he has retired his days of controlling every BG, though I think his understudies (namely Kaska) have done a fair job of carrying on his legacy.

PALADIN: Gsgsgsgsgs. This emotionally troubled helpless romantic has found himself chasing as many rank 1's as he does girls. He is currently on the Rank 1 3v3 on two BGs, and the rank 1 5v5 on three BG's. His strategy is undoubtedly "Get rank 1, get laid."

PRIEST: The priest category has multiple winners. The reason for this is that priests seem to be essential for success in the 5v5 bracket. It is also the class in which we see the highest ratio of scum. It is said that 5% of the world population is related to Ghenghis Khan. By similar logic, I'm inducing that 5% of the priest population is related to Jordons. Carrying on his legacy of tryhardedness and wintrading genetics is Seestraighz, the sleepless superstar of the 5v5 bracket who is playing on five different BGs; Aetarius, the hopeful Aussie whose dreams have been repetedly crushed by resets (he's now going for R1 on two BGs); Exumbra, the autistic bottomfeeder turned slightly better than bottomfeeder who literally transferred an entire team (http://us.battle.net...5/mort de rire/) just out of spite of Seestraightz (http://us.battle.net...s_for_u_steven/); and Anapolis, the priest healing the aforementioned Coolbears.
Honorable mention to Save, but with a hair style that marvelous, he deserves exclusion from the main list.

ROGUE: Try hard rogue goes to my friend Fhos, who is playing on at least two BGs in hopes of the prestigious Tyrannical Gladiator.

SHAMAN: Currently receiving his PHD in Computer Science while finishing up his internship at Cisco systems, Kaska has somehow managed to infiltrate almost every single BG. Though the print on his Alt and TAB keys is surely reduced to cheeto dust and sweat by now, he still manages to be one of the most feared shadowrealmers in this community.

Honorable mention to Adversa - this newcomer to the Rank 1 scene is a strong candidate for S13 Most Improved Player. His teams never fail to get wins in the clutch; the force of his heals often causing a player of the opposing team to inexplicably log off.

WARLOCK: The obvious choice for warlock would be Rawkus, but I will spare him the humiliation and assign the title to Dotaphd, who hopefully is getting an actual PHD seeing as the debt on his mom's credit card from WoW related expanses is probably more than the average cost of grad school.

WARRIOR: There really were no try hard warriors this season. I almost gave this title to Casval, seeing as he was on the most BGs of any warrior this season, but instead I give the title to previous Rank 1 KFC hero, Halcyons. This guy's team spam q'd the last week of the season, falling short of Rank 1 by nearly 150 points.

Posted Image


Most pathetic: Though I am somewhat biased in handing this one out, Exumbra is surely the most pathetic person of this season. As I mentioned he had partaken in transferring an entire team to two different BGs to try and screw over Seestraightz (costing time and money in the name of revenge). Not only that but his 5v5 team on Ruin literally had a scouting schedule. It was confirmed by multiple people that he assigned members of his team different time slots to scout our server to see when we would que. Aside from that he claimed to have "eyes" on our server. When confronted about it he said that has a few people on Real ID from Bleeding Hallow horde who notify him and his team when any one of us log on.

<<< [2:40:10 PM] Aric (Exum): i have 6 teams with 2.3k mmr looking to snipe u

Best rating camper: Sodez and Mackenzie. Though Mackenzie has since tanked from his days at Rank 1 Bloodlust, Sodez has topped the charts on BG9 for months now. He sits on his slot from the $40 throne of Honey Bunches of Oats encrusted Target Brand chair at the gaming house. Luckily some Mastermind and his prodigy rogue were able to climb the ladder to an impressive 2840 rating.

Posted Image


Honorable mention goes to Cyprix, Elfxhunter, and Wizkhalifax who have literally been sitting their rating since a month into the season.

Boldest wintrader: Navajitas - Hailing for the land of Tacos y Burros, this sloth looking Feral Droid has made numerous attempts to climb to Rank 1 on Vindication. He was recently stripped of all his rating and gear but luckily had an honorable buddy by his side to get back his cherished Tyrannical gear (GG Tyranical Conquest Achievement). Since he has been reset he has disbanded his second climb team, claiming to do so because the win ratio looked bad.


Biggest virgin award goes to me. This is probably the most pathetic thing I've ever invested so much time into. I need to keep my rep/post ratio above a 4.0; this is the only way I know how.
Oh, and a special shoutout to Khi, Plat, Krystof/Dhale FFXIV God, Keklyz, Vexthizzface, Toph, Smulch, Vinny,  Ayra, Hildegard Sprigglespruxx, Not Reliuna, Gabe, Ruin/Retal, youtube.com/bobrosslol, Poppy, Thelfx, Deprive, Splatted-o, Bubbez, Rambojohnny.


#3935946 PvP/Pve rotation

Posted Braindance on 08 September 2013 - 03:55 PM

We don't know for PvE yet; rotations must be tested on simcraft first then sprinkled with player experience for further optimization.

For pvp it's easy

Anyone with qt at the end of his name should be shot at the back of the head until his skull breaks to 345 different pieces, stabbed to the heart with 24 different rusty bayonets yielded by starved and constipated Russian soldiers from WW2, then defecated upon by a legion of plague infested rats, until his corpse dissolves and his spirit goes to Hell, were an an eternity of torment awaits him while he is reflecting upon his mortal mistake.

Listen up because you and your homeboy jaime seem really confused. I will lower my intellect to a mere splinter of it's vastness so that I can go down to the same level as you and explain in depth:

5.3

War= Shit

War community say we shit

5.4
War=good

War community say we good

You say we OP

We say you stupid we good not OP

You understand?

Posted Volatile on 31 August 2013 - 06:51 PM

You made it sound as if he wants Arms DPS reduced in general, but he's specifically saying Arms AoE far outstrips Fury AoE while Arms single target on the flip side is 10%-15% behind Fury.  

I agree with him.  Increase Arms single target while reducing our AoE slightly.

Not really.

People are just used to warriors being terrible so as soon as they're in a decent spot people cry about it.

Posted Bigmoran on 28 August 2013 - 10:32 PM

Posting this here instead of site feedback so that it can actually get some attention/confirmation.

At the moment there are far too many new posts on the front page, causing my entire browser to run slow (I would like confirmation from other users).

I don't speak for everyone, but I personally would appreciate it if the front page was limited to 2-3 news stories or condensed posts (so that 40 seperate embedded videos don't have to be loaded).

Thanks,
Bigmoran

i played with a mage on live and its not nearly as bad as you think, i just RSK into the deep and FOF towards end of deep, you can usually get ur dmg out b4 ur target gets away.

Yeah, although mage monk is a bottom tier monk comp next patch it looks like it will be a bit more promising with the mastery change to mages, their damage won't be so focused around deep freeze so the stun DR won't be such an issue, and you can always paralysis a DPS and poly the healer. I plan on updating my monk guide for 5.4, I'm personally going to try out as many comps as I can find players since no more teams and x-realm arena, I'll have to do some testing for stats and see how the new glyphs work out but I'll try and get it done quickly if anyone actually looks at it =P
