#3676049 If you give a mouse a cookie..

I agree. Triple DPS is dumb, but it's not any dumber than RLS. The way the tournament is set up basically guarantees RLS taking it all.

How can all these tournaments popping up all over the place ban triple DPS? If you try to make any attempt to balance the game, don't you have to eliminate everything that is overpowered? Why stop there? Why not just take Restoration Shamans out of the tournament? And then Rogues?

Why don't all the players that can 100% farm RLS as anything but triple DPS go ahead and list their live teams where they're ahead of all the RLS teams on their battlegroup?

Imagine a Hunter's perspective; you're an absolute moron if you think a Hunter can play anything except triple DPS and have a chance against tournament level Shadowplay/RLS and even weaker Lock/Shaman variants.

Nice thing you're doing for the community. I love the spectators saying, "this Hunter cleave" while they watch JS get killed by a shitty Kittycleave. They didn't even know what Hunter/Rogue/Healer is because it isn't a Tier 1 comp; Junglecleave is great until you fight Draen or some other R1 Shadowplay that shits all over you. You literally have like, an 8% chance of the stars aligning and you claiming a glorious victory.

But thanks for excluding a class that already has enough problems. It is so much more fun to watch every RLS in the world vie for some sort of standing that proves they're good players because they picked the icon with the Dagger when they first started playing the game.

But hey, Hunter won BlizzCon right? Every other Hunter is just sooo bad. All of them. They're all so bad and all Warlocks are just sooo good.

Posted Braindeadly on 28 March 2012 - 04:23 PM

I've made a very small teaser/trailer whatever you want to call it for Braindeadly 4 that I'm releasing in April. Clips in the teaser were mainly to show what comps I'd be playing, with whom and what sort of opponents you can expect.

p.s. follow me @ http://www.facebook.com/braindeadlyeu I'll be posting there prior to its release if you want to know in advance.

Just be nice and helpful to your non-glad fellow players and they might actually start to think of a gladiator in a way they used to.
Remembering back when I didn't have a clue about arena I looked up in awe to those players with decent ratings and most of them would actually talk to me and help me improve myself when I asked them a couple questions. If they wouldn't have helped me I probably wouldn't have continued to play arenas and I definitely wouldn't have had the same motivation to get better at the game.

This has changed in a great way ... a lot of glads just don't give a sh** about anything any more. Many friends of mine don't like PVP because when ever they try to talk to high rated players they just get flamed and laughed at... I don't understand how it is this hard to just be nice and helpful from time to time.

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.
