#4492869 Remove inactive players from ladder.

Posted Lolflay on 05 September 2015 - 04:59 PM

Yeah, it has requirements to join, set up by the organisation. The organisation, nor its members, don't directly interfere with new people joining in, as long as they meet the criteria. However, in WoW, we players DIRECTLY interfere with who gets what. Yep, Blizzard played the % cutoff. However, we players can directly manipulate and affect that system if we want to - this game has such a small community on the top, and as such, players can control the turf if they wish to. If a player really wanted to, he could create 50 characters on his account and play them all to Gladiator/R1 rating, taking 50 spots on his own. Yeah, he's probably better than most if he's able to do that, but what really gives him the right to do that, besides a broken system ?

I wasn't talking about boosting. My point of discussion are alts, boosting is a grey zone thing that's neither good nor bad for the game, it just is. And yeah, challenger and master are fixed. Diamond isn't, and Diamond is the equivalent of Gladiator in WoW ( sort of ), while the two tiers above it are the equivalent of R1.

Again, you're showing your true colors, true interest and bias in that answer, by asnwering to my statement about Pojke making the game a business. People like him don't matter in the slightest, the same way celebrities irl don't matter in the slightest, the only thing that matters in life is a constant influx of new people to keep things going. People with similar opinion like yours are the reason why world is currently experiencing old farts on high positions who currently refuse to resign to let new people take over. But that's real life, and vaguely relevant to what we're talking about here - I'll repeat my point again, one or two new players getting Glad and continuing to play arena are worth ten times more than someone like Pojke.

My opinion on this is pretty black and white, correct. Is someone playing his class good ? Aka, the way that he needs to play his class to get Gladiator ? Okay, why should he not get it, while someone honorbuddies his alt character to 100 and takes his spot, when he already has a spot taken on his main, and possibly more spots on his alts of other classes ? I'm obviously not saying he should JUST GET IT, what I'm saying is that given enough effort, a player shouldn't be denied just because the player faced legitimate competition of his own skill level, because other spots were taken by other, higher rated players out of pure wantonness.

Yup, and that's absolutely fine. Coaching, avoiding high queues, etc. What's not fine is their alts getting titles over "legitimate" players. The way you want things to continue running ( the same way they do atm ), is very similar to the current situation in organizations like FIFA and others, and why everyone hates them. The alts thing/top players helping each other getting rewards on characters they wouldn't otherwise get them is almost entirely similar to the way that corrupt governments/organizations are ran, that favor nepotism and other shit.

Besides, it's not like I'm saying that people should be given Glad/R1 for free. I also said that the number of spots needs to be greatly reduced, so that people who are on the top actually compete with their supposed "friends" over R1, instead of helping each other get, well, pretty much "welfare" titles at this point. This, combined with alts not taking spots on the ladder, would in turn produce a much more enjoyable game, game where you care about the things you want to get, over simply half assing yourself towards your goal.

This game needs

1) Rating decay ( after 3 weeks of not playing, your char drops 15 points per reset or something )

2) Only 1 character of the same class eligible for end of season rewards. A dude has a, let's say, DK on 3k rating, DK on 2.9k and a DK on 2.7k, his highest rated DK gets the seasonal award, his other two DKs don't get anything.

End of story really. In fact, gonna tweet this to Holinka.

A couple days ago I linked a video here with suggestions for Legion, but then deleted it. I found I'm not very good at voice-overs. Here's attempt #2: hoffahoff.blogspot.com

I wrote a few posts about baseline changes and soon I'll head into talents and glyphs. I'm taking a break from WoW soon so I don't burn myself out any further on Warlords. It feels good to get everything off my chest before then. Check out the blog if you enjoy this sort of thing, and feel free to respond here or there and I'll get back to you.

#4481979 New Ret Player - Viable Comps/Advice

Posted Kizume on 21 August 2015 - 11:02 AM

Hey there,

I am certainly not the best Ret Paladin out there (last season 2,1k on Horde) but I think I can give you at least some insight on what could work out for you.

I'd try to aim for Ret Hunter Shaman / Ret Hunter Priest or Ret Mage Shaman.
My Hunter did play Survival this season and it felt pretty smooth besides lacking Kill Shot. Can't tell for sure if BM is better. But with the recent Buffs to BM I think it will surpass SV by a lot.

Resto Shaman vs Disc Priest - a lot of ppl will argue that Resto Shaman is superior due to better healing and cds. However I feel like Ret Hunter is all about bursting someone down and vs caster comps your only chance is to 100-0 someone with your first wings or you are done anyway. Massdispel is key to this and the extra cc with fear is also a plus.
However if you face a Warlock team you will instantly lose with a Priest.
Ret Mage Heal used to be pretty fun in MoP however most Mages will refuse you since they can just faceroll to high ratings with every other class way more easily.

Also Tripple DPS is a no go if you don't want to ruin your reputation - on a side note it's also not viable (Ret Healing is garbage compared to what it used to be)

Regarding your gear question. I picked 2/5 set and used every versatility piece I could get. Reason is 4 set uptime is limited and I feel like the extra healing is not worth it. Right now I have ~20% verstility - 30% if I use my trinket - paired with wings it feels like I can do something to win the game.
You can copy the stats from Vanguards guide for gear slots you don't have versatility pieces.

Talent wise I won't go much into detail but:
SW EMP Seals is only worth in raiding environements and even then it falls behind SW Seraphim.
I always pick HA FV because it's the highest burst / lowest amount of micromanagement. FV has a big plus compared to TV. It has increased ranged and deals damage through BOPs (it's also higher damage than EMP Seals TV).

Keep in mind this has worked for me and doesn't mean it's the 100% accurate way of playing Ret.

Posted Lapeane on 17 August 2015 - 06:49 PM

This thread literally gave me cancer. Even bigger cancer than WoD PVP. This thread is next reason why CS:GO is so much better game than WoW. In CS almost every one love each other, they talk a lot, hang out together - 'enemies'. All top teams are friends, that's how it is.

Meanwhile on WoW there are few types of retards. There's one type of player who have every one in real id and personally they are nice to each other. But behind their back they shittalk every one (too scared to talk face to face or something).
Second type of players is toxic retard - he does everything what I said above but more in public, he hates every one even players he plays with. Everything that happens in game is not his fault. He's the best - every one is bad (especially players that play the same class, these are worst).
Ditching, shittalking friends that they play with since years - that's the way it's done. That's WoW poor scene.
This topic should never happen seriously and putting personal irl pictures of players is more scumbag behaviour than fucking reporting addon issue by Praii. Imagine you go to this fucking regionals and what you gonna do? Instead of drinking together, having fun you ll fight? Since every one has some problems with each other. Probably 90% of this shittalkers won't say a thing irl but anyway wtf. Jesus chill out guys

Still don't know why i read this shit since I don't play for months already, addiction Kappa

PS I just explained how people are on this game overall. This thread is example. I used to have some toxic situations as well but not as retarded as this shit

they haven't listened for legion because no one is testing legion to know the state of pvp in legion

separate talents for pvp doesnt somehow mean theyve taken a bunch player feedback and applied it

blizzard said a lot of things in mop about wod that made you think they listened about pvp feedback and look how well that went over;
dont get ahead of yourself in thinking that pvp will be all of a sudden fixed next expansion because historically speaking blizzard is quite intelligent in making empty promises and retarded when it comes to executing them

until they actually address the pruning issue and class homogenization and actually show that theyre doing things to resolve it then this next expansion isn't going to be that much of an improvement from the current, idk why so many of you get sold on what blizzard says theyll try to do instead of waiting on the actual physical evidence of it

I don't know why everyone on aj is such a fucking Debby downer.  Seriously, yes they have been fucking up hardcore lately and you could assume that they will possibly keep fucking it up.  But, if you aren't going to give them at least some credit and have some faith that they could fix it with the new talent tree for pvp then you are just a cynical nerd.

They finally made a system that they can balance pvp and pve separately.  Do you understand how big of a deal that is?  I will confidently say that the reasons disc priests were such shit this expansion was solely because of them having to balance for pvp and pve.  They had to balance almost every fight in pve AROUND how good discs were.  So if they made them and stronger in pvp then everyone would just bring all discs in pve.

They have finally after 11 years made it so pvp and pve can be balanced separately.  No, I'm not saying that pvp is going to be 100% fixed, but with this new tool they have they have the potential to make it better.

Tl;dr,  quit being cynical dweebs with your "never been more unhyped" shit.  If you are that pessimistic then stop fucking playing.

Edit:  and what are you talking about "until they address the class homogenization" shit?  They straight up said in the steam that this expansion they are working towards less class homogenization and making every class unique, I could be wrong but I'm sure that's what they said word for word.  Then they even showed show unique spells for each class like the disc priests abolish magic and the reinstatement of necrotic strike.

I've been playing this game for 10 years.

I think using experience as justification for passing judgment on others is a poor choice.

Not that you're wrong or anything in this case, but... just saying.

It's like saying that my uncle is right in saying a certain race is worthless... He has 75 years of experience and was incredibly successful in life.... I don't actually take what he says seriously.

I actually love almost every post you make, but I think using experience as a "I can say w/e the fuck I want" card is a very poor move in my opinion.

But that's literally one person's opinion in a sad game :(

EDIT: I don't mean to say that your personal experience doesn't make your opinion more valuable, it just... bothered me for some reason even though I agreed with your whole post.

#4451768 Remove mages from the game

Posted Jim_Jim on 12 July 2015 - 06:10 PM


Your opinions are either a 100% success or a 100% failure. Regarding Mages, you're dangerously wrong 99% of time, mostly because you're heavily biased towards them ( let's be real here, Mages were always super annoying towards Paladins in any form ).

You seem to think that a class being irreplacable and good all the seasons is somehow a bad thing ?

By mentioning ( and defending ) extra DK trinkets, you're defending fucking HORRIBLE game design

I don't defend DK trinkets, i think 100% of the DK would love to exchange all their trinket to be attractive and have a niche in arena. (Desecration, NS, AMZ, UH frenzy?). But you said it must me proactive, so how can you fix mage's blink? Because mage's are "immune" to any form of stun since ages. (One of the reasons they are where they are.). When someones speak of nerfing blink, you have ton's of rage posts, claiming they need this. But when a ret paladin manage to sacrifice a deep freeze, horror, the game is broken.

And no, a class being irreplacable is not a good thing when others are easily nerfed when someone cries. (Like ret paladin, dk for exemple, they have been trashs for years, and the second they have a good place in arena... being... mandatory - like mages -, bim, nerfed.).
This create horrible community of arrogants people (As we can see every day here, and look your post, you want the game to be based around mage or warlocks.), this create a meta game around them =

Play with them, or play something to counter them.

There is no exotic comp anymore because of that, you have to think first "Is it ok against godcomp?" "Is it ok again lock/sham?".

Look all the hate about hunters, they have been a good class sometimes, a trash ones another times, and since they stole the throne, they have been hated, and they will be hated for that all the time. (Like DK). And hunter are a trash class now because they can't counter mage/hpal or godcomp, and can't really play with warlocks either. (Because warlocks will pick something else.).

And a class being good/op for years = more peoples on this community. I don't remember if it was during MoP or Cata, but they nerfed mages sometimes during a PTR, 1 day after, tons of hated message. So Blizzard give them a compensation. Still hate. They revert the nerf, and let the compensation, resulting of a mage up.

#4450259 Skodiac's customised addons, for interupting

Posted Skodiac on 09 July 2015 - 02:03 PM

Hey Guys, I'm new to the forums here however I have been told that my YouTube video helped a lot of players with regards to being able to interrupt players reasonably faster. Although the addon I used was designed for numerous and various purposes I have found a method in which it can really help my arena game play.

I have been using this addon for many years and practised for quiet some time till I was able to master my interrupts :).

I have made a video with this, its gotten to the stage players don't believe I am human.


The addons I use are in the description of that video.

Oh no I understood what he said.  He didn't even know what he said which is weird because I even repeated it for him.  I mean you can go reread it if you would like to get a better understanding. But I think in order to reread something you would actually have to be able to comprehend the language.  You guys need to brush up on your English a little bit.  But then again don't we all.
the difference between me and you is that your point is built around semantics

a tldr version of the exchange is something like this:
- i make a statement
- you misunderstand it
- i point out that what you picked up from it is not what i was trying to say
- you keep arguing against the point you think i was trying to make despite me saying otherwise numerous times
- i tell you this is fucking dumb and back out
- you start chanting some nonsense about me "not understanding my own words", giving me some sort of in depth analysis on my paragraph structure and usage of "but", trying to prove... something? i honestly can't even tell what. you weave in shit like "how are you a mod again?" "how did the server not 404 these stupid thoughts?" etc
- i call you out on disrespect for those bits
- you cling on to the literal meaning of the word i used and play witty, while admitting that you did go out of your way to be 'condescending' in the next post. so, you knew exactly what i was referring to from the beginning
- i give up
- you're still talking about me "not knowing what i said despite repeating it to me" several pages later. mate i know what i was trying to say and i also know that for whatever reason, we failed to communicate that. i don't really care why at all and you're obviously not interested in arguing with my actual points as much as you are interested in arguing against your own interpretations of my texts. have fun with that

meanwhile i made an actual point on the subject of discussion (if anyone still remembers that) that still stands

To be competitive with or to be taken seriously, although the whole game shouldn't be taken seriously in the first place.  Either way this isn't randombg junkies for a reason.

bg's being completely fucking broken has a massive impact

you'd have much more people interested in arena (to a serious degree, just like you want it) if the entry level pvp experience didn't leave you with an impression that the developers don't give a fuck (at all) about this side of the game. a lot of people just go "ah, fuck this then, no wonder everyone says its shit lol" right there and then. you realize you'd often be only like 3-4 actual players in 15 man bgs right? that's on a good day if you're lucky

the people who botted bgs and eventually corrupted an entire area of the game to the point of being unusable/unplayable have done an immense amount of damage to the very game they play. its akin to what people do with boosting and taking like a million spots in glad, just straight up camping them for months and 'freezing' a huge part of the elo/mmr pool (on top of it all belonging to a single player, lol).

i usually blame the design, but you know, if this community didn't love to shit in their own sandbox so much, this wow pvp thing could be slightly more appealing and better. you could say botting levels isn't really malicious, but botting bg's has always been straight up malicious and detrimental to the game, and all the people who did it were consciously and carelessly ruining the experience for other players. they deserve shit as much as those who scripted
