I wouldn't say that I have a role model, but back in the days the Francis movie had quite the impact on me. I rerolled soon afterwards and started playing in a serious and motivated manner for the first time. In BC there weren't too many player that I recall had a direct impact on me, but I do remember a few that made competing worthwhile (that being back with my original account / char). Watching older movies nowdays, such as the Hydra series and whatnot makes me realise, though, that what a player such as Hydra already did back in season5 (movements, positioning etc) is something that you can see practically every day regardless of the rating you play at, so I dare say some of these more well known players had a rather huge influence on the overall pvp population, even if only in an indirect way for the most of us here on AJ.

Its still not that common unless you're on one of these pvp hub type of realms such as SS, Outland or Aegwyn, but the overall quality most certainly deteriorated over the last couple of seasons. It becomes increasingly hard to judge whether a gladiator is truly better than someone without a title and you don't often (if ever) get that get sense of accomplishment you used to get for beating an "allstar" team anymore. But non the less, Gladiator is still a well respected title overall and those of us that feel its lost the weight it once carried are in the smallest minority.

I would have to 100% agree on you with the first part of your post, Players such as Hydra and key players from the early days really have shaped the way we PvP, by pushing the bounds and breaking away from the norm they have created some very useful and cunning tactics which can be found amongst almost all players these days. It was those early days, and those early players that helped shape and grow the PvP scene, those are the players i will always respect, Those are the true Gladiators.

It is also refreshing to see someone recognise and relate to the fact that although a majority of us here have become sour and put off by the illegitimate players out there and the somewhat degraded value of a Gladiator title, that there are still people out there who look up to those players, who when they see a Gladiator title do not immediately think of ways to falsify their accomplishment but look at them with a sense of respect and look at them as a HUB for information, as someone they can approach for advice and help in their current struggle and endeavours to advance, to break out of a place that all of us started from, The learning process.

#3650030 Athene charity tourney

Posted misios on 24 February 2012 - 11:56 PM

I would very much like Athene to take distance from the braindeadly crew, they are ruining the tournament - and I actually think they are affecting the actual charity income with their attitute - a giving person is much less inclined to feel like giving to charity when some chavs are sitting on skype acting like 12 year olds who stole daddys jaeger.

Don't think Braindeadly had anything to do with the idiocy, I barely heard him on skype even, it's just the fact Blazin doesn't give a shit because it's for Charity and he ain't getting paid.

#3649376 How to Stop DDoS

Posted aquatics on 24 February 2012 - 03:45 AM

Hello, my name is Merkx, and today I will show you how to stop DDoS/other internet problems. (If you know you're being DDoSd skip ahead to the bold)

1) If your internet is working for some applications and not others (i.e. skype works but WoW is lagging out) then you are NOT being DDoS'd. In most cases it means the DNS server you use is not working properly (comcast DNS servers are shit). If you have not set a DNS server then you are probably using your Internet Service Providers IP. I recommend switching to Google's or OpenDNS's server. Here's how:

http://i.imgur.com/I2VGU.png > right click your current connection and go to properties > press Internet Protocol Version 4 > properties > http://i.imgur.com/edr62.png

Mine is set to google's DNS servers, you can use whichever you want.

2) DDoS. You know you're being DDoSd if you gradually begin to lag on all programs using the internet and then disconnect from them. Sudden disconnects usually do not involve DDoS. People that DDoS you usually obtain your IP through skype or twitch tv and the amount of people that can DDoS you on the spot is surprisingly low **Do not go to DDoS as the first thing you blame when you disconnect from WoW**

But here is how to stop DDoS if you know you're being DDoSd:

Log into your router > find your mac address (should look like this http://i.imgur.com/6X5oc.png)> change one of the numbers to another number > save your settings and restart your modem

Don't change your mac address too many times per day as it might cause some problems with your ISP but this should change your IP making it impossible for the DDoSer to target you unless he/she gets your new IP (through skype/twitch/etc). Note: Doing ipconfig/release or restarting your modem/router alone will not stop DDoS.

Further Protection: If your attacker keeps finding your IP after changing your mac address try getting a VPN program like HotSpot Shield to "spoof" your IP after you have changed it.
Edit: More stuff to spoof your IP (use whichever lags you the least)

Happy Streaming.

Emphasize that EU vs US shit and all these Swifty jokes won't be tolerated, then just start banning.

#3644915 Why hasn't Rsham dispel been nerfed yet?

Posted naebae on 18 February 2012 - 11:54 PM

The heal has a 6sec internal cooldown and priests can get it also by glyphing. Paladins can also glyph the mana cost down and it actually takes 3 talents to get all the benefits from it while other healers only need 1 talent to get the magic dispel. I agree that it is somewhat better than what other healers get but it is one of the least op things about resto shammys at the moment.
