So theres nothing wrong with FF or frozen arrow or warrior perma slow spam? Not saying BoS is'nt retarded but use your head. Rogues wouldn't be forced to use it if there weren't so many spammable slows that have no place in this game.

Unstoppable combat rogue, immortal mages, rdruid(Worst healer, jk), 140k execute by warriors and 200k+ burst from demonwarlock, Monk with 45second cooldown cacoon/masteraura  - time to nerf hunter cuz there is nothing else to fix!

- guaranteed openers due to camouflage and flares

- freedom

- sprint ( LOL )

- all of the strenghts of melees and casters with very ( if any at all ) weaknesses of said archetypes

- 12 sec mongoloid easy to land CC

- VERY good damage

- ability to swap specs before game depending on what you're facing ( MM if squish, surv if armored team ) ( everyone can obviously do it, but this is by far the strongest trait on hunters compared to other classes )

- passive health regen ( second wind rofl )

- etc

Can you mongoloid hunters shut the fuck up with constant bias ? I swear, this is like reading Jaime's posts on Elemental Shamans where he claims it takes skill to play them.

I AGREE that hunters are not the only problem, but they sure are as big of a problem as any other issue right now. Only posting this because you've played my strings with that post btw, feel free to check my post history and you'll see few ( if none ) complaints about Hunter traps or Hunters in general.

How does a ranged class get to attack on the move along with not having to worry about interrupts?  If that's not enough - why do they get permanent secondwind, MS, a slow, RoS, double deter, and great damage and greater cc?

I'm surprised blizz didn't give them an AOE cc breaker for the whole team and off heals since they have everything else.

Very happy with the changes - for people saying it is too small, seriously, it is much better to make small adjustments, see how the results are, and adjust more small if it is not enough. You would be surprised at how little of nerfs can  make all the difference.

Don't play with people just because you think they are really good and you think you can climb with them find people who you like playing with then climb with them. That's what I do and it makes the game a lot funner when you hit a hard spot because it's more "we got them next game"s and less "this healer fuckin blows must have bought his account"

back on topic, i think it's really cool to watch 2 dot cleaves tab target each other until one of them eventually dies

in my professional opinion, this is the gameplay god intended when he created the universe

just mages, warlocks, druids, shamans and priests tab targeting each other forever

it just feels right

also: when did it become godcomp

psure that was shatterplay in wrath

you can't just rename things because you weren't relevant when they were invented

#3807389 How to prevent DDoS on skype. Proxy set up guide.

Posted hurrdurr on 18 November 2012 - 07:54 PM

Our Toolbox


PuTTY is a neat little program that allows you to do a lot of different things. The specific functions we will be using it for is the ability to tunnel SSH traffic through localhost ( to our VPS. In laymen’s terms, it will be transferring all of the data over Skype through a secure tunnel so that only the VPS you’re connected to is being exposed to anyone else.

This is a simple program that we will use that will transform the key we get from Amazon into something that PuTTY can use to automatically connect to our VPS.
Windows 7 Firewall

We’re using Windows 7′s Firewall (ANY Firewall can be substituted here) to disable Skype from connecting to the internet.
EC2 Amazon Access

Even though it requires a credit card to sign up for and activate, the only tier we’re interested in is 100% free. Amazon may authorize $1 to your CC just to verify that it’s real, but you won’t actually be billed any money. The free-tier that we will be using will be good for 1 year prior to activation.
The Process

The problem people have with Skype is that it tends to ignore whatever proxy you throw into the connection information for it. It doesn’t actually ignore the proxy, but it will simply add it to a list of nodes it will consider connecting to if you’re having trouble maintaining a p2p connection with whoever it is you’re chatting with. For security purposes, this makes it useless. Instead of adding our VPS to the Skype proxy list, we’ll add “What’s the point, though? You said it won’t even use that most of the time!” That’s where our Windows Firewall comes in! We’ll use Windows 7′s Firewall to block Skype from making ALL outbound connections to the internet. This means that when Skype tries to connect to the internet when you log in, it will see that there is no connection available. This forces it to look to any proxies the user has supplied for a connection. Ordinarily, these would also not work (since all outbound connections are blocked by our Firewall), however, localhost is not an outbound connection and therefore falls outside of W7′s restricted connections. This means we’ve effectively tricked W7′s firewall into becoming a routing tool! Skype will then begin tunneling traffic through localhost, assuming PuTTY is open and you are connected to your EC2 server that you set-up on Amazon.

The Walkthrough

If you came here straight from the first page just looking to a guide to mindlessly follow, this will get the job done. However, I highly encourage you to read the explanations given in the pages prior to this so that you have a thorough understanding of what you’re going to be doing with the programs you’ll be working with.

Downloading PuTTY

First, let’s get the program we’ll use for our SSH tunneling, PuTTY, and the program we’ll use for our Amazon key, PuTTYgen.
PuTTY and PuTYYgen - http://www.chiark.gr...y/download.html. [Picture]
Setting up EC2 on Amazon

Next, we’ll need to create an AWS (Amazon Web Services) account. You can click the “sign up now” button here - http://aws.amazon.com/ec2/. If you don’t already have an Amazon account, you’ll need to create one of those as well. The micro-instance we’ll be utilizing via Amazon’s EC2 service is free for one year.
After that, we’ll need to sign up for Amazon’s EC2 service and get a micro-instance running.

  • You can return to the same link earlier (http://aws.amazon.com/ec2/) and click the “My Account/Console” drop down menu in the top right, then click “AWS Management Console”.

  • Next click “EC2″ under the “Compute and Networking” list

  • You should see an option that will allow you to “Launch” an instance. Click that.

  • Select the “Classic Wizard” option and click next.

  • Scroll down to whatever the latest Ubunutu server is with a star next to it, and press the “select” button next to it. You can leave the 64 bit version selected.

  • As long as everything looks like this on the next page, you can continue.

  • Press “continue” on the next page.

  • Then press “continue” one more time.

  • The next page asks you to assign a key/value name to the micro-instance you are running. This is entirely arbitrary and will not be used at any point here, so you can name these whatever you want, or simply leave it blank.

  • For the next page, you’re requested to create a name for your key pair. This will be used later on to log into the micro-instance. After you assign another arbitrary name, you can download this key pair.

  • On the next security page you need to select the “quick-start” bubble, then click “continue”.

  • Finally you can “launch” your instance!
Creating a keyfile and setting up PuTTY

Remember where you saved that keyfile that you downloaded earlier? Now we’re going to turn that keyfile into something usable with PuTTY.
  • Open “puttygen.exe”.

  • Click “load” and search for the key you saved from Amazon. You will have to select “all files” in the bottom right as the file you’re looking for is a .pem file, and not a .ppk file.

  • Click “save private key” and save it somewhere you’ll remember for later on.
Now it’s time to configure the program that we downloaded earlier, PuTTY.
  • When you first open up PuTTY, there will be two empty boxes for information. “Host Name (or IP address)” and “Port”. In the “Host Name” box, you need to enter your EC2 information from Amazon. Go to https://console.aws.amazon.com/ec2 and click “1 Running Instance” to bring up a list containing the instance you launched earlier. Select it. At the bottom of the screen you will see your Amazon EC2 IP (it will look something like this). Enter this into the PuTTY Host Name box. For “Port” you can enter “22″.

  • Make sure the connection type is set to SSH.

  • On the left side of the PuTTY window, scroll down and expand “Connection”, then select “Data”.

  • Here you want to enter your “Auto-login username” as “ubuntu”.

  • Now expand “SSH”, then select the “Auth” option.

  • In the empty box here you need to search for and enter the location of the keyfile you saved earlier using puttygen.

  • Now select “Tunnels”. On this screen you want to enter 8080  in the “Source port” box, and make sure you’ve selected the “Dynamic” bubble beneath. Now press “Add” and “D8080″ should appear in the box above.

  • Now scroll all the way back up to “Session” on the left side, enter whatever you want in the “Saved Sessions” box, then press the “Save” button on the right to save these settings. Now when you open PuTTY, all you’ll have to do is press “Load” and “Open” to recall these settings and open your SSH tunnel.
Use Windows 7 Firewall to block Skype
  • Search for “Advanced” on Windows 7 and “Windows Firewall with Advanced Security” should come up.

  • Select “Outbound Rules” from the left column

  • In the top left, select the “Action” menu and click on “New Rule…”

  • A box will appear on your screen. Select “Program” and click the next button.

  • Browse your computer for Skype to block, then press “Next”.

  • Press “Next” one more time, all three boxes should be marked on this screen.

  • You can create whatever name you want here; I called my rule “SkypeBlock”.
Now Windows 7 will not allow Skype to make any outbound connections! To test and make sure that this worked, try to open up Skype right now. If you were successful, Skype should fail to connect to the internet.
Force Skype to route through localhost
  • On the Skype login windows, click “Tools”, then press the “Connection options” button.

  • Under this connection tab, you need to make sure “SOCKS5″ is selected in the drop down menu. Now you need to enter “″ for the “Host” box and “8080″ for the “Port” box.
And that’s it, you’re done!
Now any time you want to log onto Skype behind your Amazon proxy, all you have to do is open PuTTY, load your settings, then connect to your EC2 instance (via the “Open” button) and you should be good to go!

I don't know why you're all hating, that wasn't an insult, it was a legitimate quesiton because in this hilarious video, which I linked around to my friends, telling them to watch, there was a reference to the move "swagger" in pokemon which is banned in most competitive battling environments.

I didn't realize competitive pokemon, which is actually quite strategic and fun, I dabble in it in fact, was viewed at by world fo warcraft arena players as such a lowly hobby that one would be embarrassed for doing.

I was just genuinely curious.

I don't ddos. I've never ddosed anyone. I don't condone ddosing, I'll never, ever, partake in ddosing another player on the opposing team for the victory. An achievement and victory, even in a video game, if earned by cheating or underhanded playing is not earned and is meaningless to me.

The reason you, and 90% of people who've even heard of my name on WoW think I'm a ddoser is because, as I explained in great detail in the thread in which this all started (on page 3), I was dragged into a skype call that was being streamed, of which I had no knowledge. In this skype call I was threatening to ddos someone who had been ddosing my arena team for the past week or so and ddosing our healer every time we were 1 game away from 2700, which at the time was kinda high. Anyways I was willing to go against my policy against ddosing in order to actually allow my team to que for a few games. I was NOT intending on ddosing another team for rating, someone was literally spam ddosing my partner who at the time could not change his IP or solve the issue himself. In reality, I never ended up actually ddosing the person in question, it was merely a threat out of immense frustration and as a part of my quest for justice in that situation. The thread in which this was all shown via twitch vod was created by imongo aka azaleabanks who himself has been on the record on twitch vod literally verbatum asking for and intending to hit my arena partners in the starting room of arena. I.E. someone who was out to get me.

Now of course, you, or anyone else for that matter is just going to read all that, say I'm retarded and that I'm a ddoser etc. but at least i can say that I defended myself and presented my case and the reality of the situation.

I've basically come to terms with the fact that this incident is something I will be judged for and called out on for the rest of my, and God I feel retarded saying this, "wow career", which is unfortunate. But I'm just going to do my thing, que arenas, get better, stream, entertain, and follow my competitive spirit.

Its funny, people are so easy to judge someone they've never met, talked to, or even know to much about. For example, random people in Europe who don't know me, the kind of person I am, or even how I act, who've heard vaguely that I'm a ddoser or read a few of my posts on a internet forum hate me and view my with such contempt. I suppose we are all guilty of this to some extent, but its a cold reality nonetheless.

I made one post, posing a genuine question, perhaps not completely serious, but without any intentions of "trolling" or belittling the OP and everyone in the replies misinterprets it somehow and jumps to far out conclusions.

I guess AJ will never change,

Anyways, good video. I enjoyed it.

No one read this lol

Btw u are trying to make it look like FF is not dispellable, that druids are just jumping around having nothing to do and that pillars don't exist.

You know how its like to play vs god comp that knows what they are doing? Nova > dispel>
Me:dispel my FF dude so I can vanish!
Healer:can't, cd!
Me: dispel on next cd!
Healer: ok.
dispel > full fear
Me:full fear, dispel so I can vanish already!
Healer: I just did dispel FF before that fear, cant dispel for 8 sec.
(after the fear you get pet novad, with faerie fire up all the time)
Me: dispel ?
(healer dispels, I vanish and garrote mage, priest is next to him and fears me)
Me: Dispel that fear cuz I am going hard!
Healer: fucking CD cuz I dispelled your faerie fire!

No need to go further, I guess you get the point. But in order to know how annoying it is for a rogue, you have to play a rogue yourself, there are no words to explain how OP FF spamming is. And yes, it doesn't happen all the time, if you have pressure on them, they won't have time to FF you or anything. But if they have pressure on you, be sure that you will be sitting in 30 seconds (yes, 30 seconds CC chains), just because you are feared away into root/FF, cloned 3 times in a row, knocked back for the slow and still have FF on yourself. Don't even want to explain how annoying it is to play vs LSD on two level map because I am gonna need a blog for that.

Why is no one crying for charge

I played alpha for a couple of days and we also did a lot of war games (mostly WLD vs RMP, WD vs RM,  WD vs MP). The charge change fits the other mobility changes. Personally I played with 20 sec charge and it absolutely did not feel bad. In Wotlk or TBC we had to play with charge + intercept. Now we have charge and heroic leap which gives us similar mobility, if you add storm bolt to it we actually have similar range control, too. It really doesn't feel bad and with less instants in the game, it doesn't hurt the overall performance at all if you have to walk for 4-5 yards instead. The only thing that hurts is when you waste your gap closer but who would waste it? ;-)

About the CS change: Unless you're a tank, you only have 3% parry. All dodge is gone except evasion but due to the lack of overpower, evasion is finally a cooldown. So basically unless you're lacking awareness and CS into die by the sword / evasion, you're pretty much sure it'll land.

Gladiatorstance is more of a fun thing. I did a few duels vs tanks and it's not impossible to beat them. Gladiatorstance is more about being a viable dps in your raid (the dps actually looks decent, about 70-85% of a pure dps). Sure it takes a bit longer to kill a tank in gladiatorstance than it does to kill an arms warrior but keep in mind that second wind is basically gone, i.e. you don't have to worry to kill through it.

If you wonder about self healing: enraged regen looks very good atm. 2nd wind converts dmg to healing but the problem is.. you have to do dmg, so it's not viable against range classes or if you're stuck in a stun. Same with impending victory. The 20% healing done by enraged regen feel good now that battle fatigue is gone in WoD. :-)

About the stancedance thingy: I like that it's back. Last time I played it wasn't live yet but from what I've seen it won't hurt you. The game already felt very smooth but something was missing. I think stance dancing will fit into the "new/old warrior" thing they're trying to build.

The new mastery looks very good and is a lot more fun to play. No more small hits. I really like the idea of having a few big hitting abilities, after all we're using a 2handed weapon and not two 1handed swords. :-)

I played warrior (arms and prot), priest (all three specs). mage (fire) and rogue on alpha. I have to say that warrior is in a fairly decent spot. It's not a mindless class at all on alpha. Sure you lose some of your abilities but because you lost some, you actually have to think about whether you want to use (or waste) your other cds. less defensive/offensive cds makes for a much cleaner gameplay and you know that as soon as you managed to get a major defensive cd w/o using your offensive cds, the enemy will be in trouble. It's not like today "oh i forced parry nvm he still has wall". It feels much cleaner.

One last thing about the stance dancing: I think we have to "d up" again if we expect burst or stun / cc on us. We can't use rallying cry in bstance so having a good understanding of the current state of the arena game will be crucial. Are we offensive? Are we defensive? Am I on stun dr? It's not viable to sit in dstance all the time, you'll sacrifice too much dmg.

You're showing a pretty significant amount of care for someone who doesn't care, you might want to rethink that post. Visiting arenajunkies is one of my really bad habits, guilty as charged. It used to be back when relevant people still played and posted, it's even more so of a bad habit now that plebs like yourself are trying to make themselves heard.
