#3677154 2012 World of Warcraft Arena Pass Coming Soon

Posted Minpojke on 03 April 2012 - 05:37 PM

Official Blizzard Quote:

We’re pleased to announce that the 2012 World of Warcraft Arena Pass is nearly here. Starting April 10, players will be able to sign up to compete against like-minded individuals in a dedicated Arena sandbox. The Arena Pass service will feature access to Arena Pass realms with level-85 character templates and epic gear from Cataclysm.

As an added bonus, we have included an exclusive reward that players can earn by purchasing their Arena Pass and participating in the competition — an Armored Murloc in-game pet. Top players will also contend for a chance to achieve the “Vanquisher” title for their live characters. Players that choose to take part in the 2012 Arena Pass will also receive access to a special level-90 realm with upgraded epic gear after the upcoming Mists of Pandaria expansion is released and they’ve upgraded their accounts.

If you would like to demonstrate your Arena prowess, are eager for a chance to earn the exclusive loot, or just want to reserve a spot in the level-90 Mists of Pandaria Arena Pass realm, please check back next week for more details and be sure to register!

As a viewer, if anything, I wouldn't want any comps to be banned at all - except for triple healer, as they really have no chance of ever killing anything. I also believe it's more fun to watch a tournament where pve gear is put into the equation (except legendaries), which allows more comps to be played.

Probably alone in this opinion though.

I'm being captain obvious here but this game was never balanced and will never be. Doesn't stop it from being entertaining, however.

I don't know about you guys, but the only reason I ever watched WoW tournaments is to laugh at retarded shit and watch Koreans play. So, on topic: allow 3dps imho.

One thing is retarded, so is something else. One of them is not allowed, one of them is....

Do you have any idea how boring it would be to spectate a 3v3 game against 3DPS?
Do you feel as though PHD is a sub-par comp?
How about feral/hunter/healer?
Does rogue/hunter/healer suck?

Why would it be boring to watch triple DPS play? Games would be fast paced and heavily reliant on cordination for the team facing the triple dps.

Let me ask you with another question(s) however: Do you know how boring it is to watch 15 minutes of RLS vs. RLS? Or watch RLS play against Hunter/Rogue/Shaman for example, knowing that the RLS will never lose, but the game still drags on with the thugcleave being defensive and kiting for 15 minutes? RMP facing off against RLS not having a chance to kill either, when Shamans are using 5500 resilience? Watching PHD open with initial burst, not scoring a kill then being cross CC'ed for 8 seconds and losing in a Smokebomb? Watching an MLS never being able to score a kill on a Rogue and the RLS making the mage oom and eventually die?

But you're right. 3 DPS would make the tournament boring, because they have the upper hand against 1 setup (which, with good play, could easily turn into a 2v2 where the RLS would be able to pull off a win which would be rather exiting). If anything, RLS, is ruining tournaments. Doesn't mean they should be banned, but if they have counters, while still countering others, banning the first one seems rather retarded and irrational.

Junglecleave for once, shits all over triple DPS. So does PHD or any other Paladin based team (like Vanguards). But you're right, RLS might be countered like the other setups also are by RLS, so rather not let them in at all. We all prefer 15 minute games. And the comps you mentioed are all sub-par, yes. Junglecleave perhaps being the only strong one outside RLS currently.

It's just my 2 (perhaps a bit longer) cents. I know you play RLS yourself, but there is no reason to come off as biased as you do.

If you lose as RLS to 3 DPS, but win your other games, while 3 DPS lose to the rest, you will still end up winning the Tournameny. So where is the problem except some less boring 15 minute draws.

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.

BD4 Teaser: http://www.warcraftm...w.php?id=212673

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.

#3660369 Most influential players

Posted Mckenzie on 11 March 2012 - 01:14 AM

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.
