with all due respect to jungyup, i don't think were ever going to see a mage backpedal and constantly blink off bridges trying to get away and still win blizzcon

i don't understand this argument

mage isn't hard to play anymore, but the class actually does something

as a hunter, everything you do is just a matter of you using your abilities. you don't have to bait any interrupts or create space to cast, you just fucking hit wyvern sting, trap, silencing shot, scatter. none of them even require a proc, you just PRESS them and the other team gets CC'd

i used to satirically complain about ice lance just being an instant cast, but i'm realizing that every hunter who got high rating in MoP and doesn't realize it's their class can't understand any subtlety

EVERY ability you use as a hunter nobody can stop. presumably, someone COULD eat a trap, but you have complete control of that as well just by pressing instant abilities.

there's no metagame where you're baiting interrupts, then communicating an opportunity to your partners that enables a CC within a small window

there's no building damage by getting casts off ahead of time for icicles, orbs, etc.

there really isn't even proc-based damage built around your own doing (as hunter, you basically just get a random proc that you shoot instantly vs. being aware of fingers of frost and holding them long enough to get a deep, then create more using another ability so they don't cannibalize the old ones, etc.)

there's just attacking. instant attacking, which hunters do a lot of, all game, and there's CC, which everyone basically has to watch the hunter do and play around

melee classes complain they can't stop a mage's damage. it's truer than it was in any other expansion. it's more difficult to stop, but you can certainly greatly inhibit a mage's ability to do damage by attacking them. i promise.

you literally CANNOT stop a hunter's damage without stunning them. you can't interrupt their CC, all you can do is MAYBE eat a trap (but this, too, is out of your control)

there are two major problems with the metagame of mists of pandaria:

the biggest one is a defensive one, and it's shamans due to tremor totem and not having any abilities (there's never a reason for a resto shaman to leave a pillar, an enhance shaman can't do anything other than attack all game). i don't complain about this a lot because jahmilli beats it to death and frankly i get less irritated by an idiot sitting behind a pillar than one running at me and attacking, but admittedly, the game would be much more fun for everyone if there were no shamans

the other one is an offensive one, and it's classes like hunter (and mage to a lesser extent) being able to fucking run at you, even as the kill target, and be literally unstoppable in their actions

if we're talking about warlocks and mages and hunters i can see how from the hunter perspective, you see your class is the weakest out of the three and are frustrated, but it's honestly lazy logic concluding your class takes more doing than the others because it's not as good

playing a hunter in arena is almost the same thing as playing it in pve so long as you are aware that some people can dispel wyvern and others might try to eat a trap

i'll admit now for a moment that it could be worse, though. if you play a mistweaver, you basically just do nothing except use instant cast abilities from max range the entire game, and if you play an enhance sham, you literally just attack all game. once every 40 seconds or so you are required to use an instant cast CC, which is the only ability you have that is not an attack

tl;dr: wizards more powerful than hunters, but they really ought to be, because a world where you can play mw beast cleave and beat good players playing real classes would be disappointing

if i made a chart sorting all the classes in the game on a level of scum with one axis for difficulty and the other axis for strength, hunters would be in the top 4 scumlords

#4212238 2014 NA Regional Drama Wrap-Up

Posted Regent on 18 September 2014 - 11:54 PM

Since there has been a lot of drama recently, I figured I would make a TL;DR thread for those of you that have successful real lives and can't sit on ArenaJunkies 24/7.

The North American Regional Qualifiers:
  • Hosted by ESL (the same company that organized the holocaust)
  • 2800 players qualify but only 50 Teams signed up
  • No seeding and random placement meant some popular teams eliminated each other right of the bat
  • Zero interaction with Blizzard, even after the ESL website wasn't working
  • People suspect Blizzard will be asking for some of the money they paid ESL back, since ESL apparently completely forgot that they were supposed to hold this tournament
Vanguards team gets knocked out because of a "no-show":
  • Timestamp does show that Vanguards team was almost 30 minutes late to their match
  • They claim they had no idea the time they were supposed to play
  • Poor organization and almost no help from ESL admin, many people think they didn't deserve the loss
  • Vanguards, being the least confrontational person in existence, made a nice forum post saying how he is slightly angry that he missed out on a chance for $40,000 USD
Jah's team gets knocked out and tries to get back in on a technicality, twice:
  • Claims his first loss was not actually the "real" game and only practice
  • Screenshots show his team agreeing it was the real game
  • Some people claim that after his second loss he tried to contact tournament admin and get it changed
  • Talbadar is "disappointed" in jah
  • Jah, unsurprisingly, calls everyone "retards" and hasn't been seen since
Wizk's team cheats and has other players, not on their roster, play:
  • By far the biggest drama generating event of the tournament
  • Wizk, Jakenotezz, and Random rogue decided to play RPS in tournament
  • Upon tournament brackets coming out, they realize they will have to fight comps that are strong against them
  • Wizk realizes that it would be too obvious to ddos his opponents, he determines he will have to come up with another way to cheat
  • Wizk replaces his rogue and rsham with an rdruid and mage who are not on his team roster and then wins multiple games (it is assumed that the mage was played by, "Piecez," and the druid by, "Rynd")
  • People (obviously) realize what is happening and he gets disqualified for cheating
  • Wizk then cries, makes a 40 minute video about why he didn't cheat, no one believes him
  • Jakenotezz, then makes a post on AJ admitting that they cheated, apologizing, and says he only did it to bang his 18 y/o e-girlfriend when he goes to New York
  • Wizk then claims he is too good for this community
  • Wizk locks in his spot next to Xandyn in the "top 5 scummiest wow players of all time"
  • Randomroguex is mad that no one knows who he is, doesn't understand the concept of why cheating is bad, and is apparently a part of some "elite cheaters club"
Multiple teams Disqualified after the tournament ends based on their geographical location:
  • Apparently it was easier to allow these people to play in the tournament and then disqualify them after they won
  • Raises multiple questions about the outcome of the tournament, since the teams who got DQ'ed knocked people out of the tournament
  • The dominant team of Jeff, Barry, and Twochainz is rumored to be one of the teams DQ'ed
Avangelyne proves he is really weird:
  • Made multiple weird posts about having a girlfriend
  • Multiple awkward tweets involving, but not limited to: old memes, obscure Norwegian cover bands, and History channel TV shows
  • All of this is okay though, because according to him, he "has a lot of friends"
Former 3rd place Blizzcon team, "PvP Live" replaces healer the night before qualifiers:
  • but apparently forget to tell him he is off the team
  • Famous monk, "Dannycarey" is replace by other famous monk, "Verdantstorm"
  • Novoz and Thugonomicz imply that Dannycarey is part of something (Illuminati?)
  • Dannycarrey still hasn't run out of mana
  • Surprisingly, Glinks didn't cheat or try to ddos anyone
  • Nice work, Glinks
World of Warcraft PvP Designer, "Holinka" no where to be found:
  • A week has gone by since his last sighting
  • Police have decided to end the search
  • His family stays hopeful
Arena Junkies:
  • Datacus tries really hard to get some free rep, fails miserably
  • For the first time in over a year, people are capped out on giving rep
  • If you point out any scummy things that friends of the moderators have done, you will be getting an infraction
  • Flavour is still making stupid posts
  • Dillypoo's insults have been getting noticeably better over time, possibly hitting puberty soon?
  • Bigmoran tries to dispel ddos rumors by threatening to ddos anyone who talks about it
  • Thugonomicz believes that Arenajunkies.com is actually "Horse cocks"
  • Bailamos dropped in to insult Jakenotezz for having an e-girlfriend, the irony is palpable
  • More wintrading in EU, no one is surprised
  • The "scummy dozen" continue to rep each-other in an attempt to make it seem like they have some community support
  • Ayra is still black, and still european

#4202620 Wounded state in WoD

Posted ysnakewoo on 05 September 2014 - 11:58 PM

If Blizzard is known for anything, that is to follow a pattern. Every time they want to release an expansion it's the same bullshit story every time:
"We have fixed most of the issues that we brought with this expansion. It took us almost 2 years because we are too afraid to do anything in the middle of expansion since our precious PvE community might be confused as in 'why is my rotation 1-3-2 and not 1-2-3 anymore?' or any major things like that. However, we have added more broken shit than ever, so we will be repeating this story again in a year or so. More news at 11."

Fully agree.

As for the "its only alpha geez" posters, shut the FUCK UP. Your kind always says that and shit from alpha makes it to beta, and subsequently makes it to live. You're fucking retarded, people like you who cba taking action when the time is appropriate have the same mentality as the people who allow corrupt politicians to do whatever the fuck they want.
