rogue comps dominated mop 5s, almost no other comp had a competing chance unless the rogue team was very shit

now that I have read the arguments made by very imminent EU RBGers, I have come to the conclusion that a higher caliber of player does indeed exist only in RBGs.

It would be great if Blizzard introduced a new title to RBGs, Hero is only the top 0.5%, over the last 4 years its lost value. A lot of competition would be revived for a new title equivalent to rank 1 every season, and ironically, it would be more prestigious since only roughly 70~ people would achieve it if we used this season's statistics. Realistically, that would probably be the top 2-3 teams who would receive it.

<name>, the Vicious Hero through to <name>,the Prideful Hero, all of these titles are a lot better sounding than a title you earn once and keep forever. I would vote for a title wipe every season for HotA/H to be the same with Gladiator.

Very few players/teams care about actual good games; they care about how high their name is up on a virtual ladder.

  • RBGs and Arena are different brackets
  • Both Require skill / tactics at high rating
  • Arena games can be rewarding to win at high rating to achieve milestones
I have lead RBGs since S11, I have played with around 1000 people ( Skype list peaked at 700 contacts), I never had an RBG leader for a permanent team so I decided to become one, I lead my self from nothing and improved and managed to achieve hero multiple times, I don't deny in my "rbg carrier" that I have not dodged, But I have also spent the last season with over 600 games played and dodged maybe on 2-3 occasions against top end teams / DDOSers. The occasions I felt that my team was ready to compete against "top" teams we did win.. People started to dodge us when we started queuing, I que'd from mid afternoon until early evening before having to PVE, on some occasions we did que during the evening, From my point of view there was nothing more satisfying than being sniped by a team to then take a huge shit on them. I honestly believe there is nothing more fun than completive rbgs with the occasional low team that makes you giggle. I keep one screenshot from when I first started playing RBGs and its of me at 1600 mmr in S11 vs Genetics this is my reminder that whatever you do in game if you put the effort and learn something that you can improve and become better, I wouldn't change my team this season and look forward to playing with them again the most chill relaxed guys I have played with don't QQ over loses and this is why I think rbgs are better. Teamwork and long term synergy is what makes this game fun for me

RBGs definitely have a higher skillcap, there is so much more to do as almost every class, and the strategies can be much more complex than arenas. Unfortunately majority of the best players in the game no longer participate in them. They are far less competitive now than previous seasons, and the best teams are very mediocre compared to what they could be. The main reason people who struggle in arenas tend to excel more in RBGs aren't because they're easier, its because the teams beating them in arena don't exist in RBGs, they choose not to play them. The player pool is much much smaller.

Anyone who has actively played both RBGs and arenas at the highest level would agree its much more fun and satisfying to win a hard fought RBG with two amazing teams than to win any arena match, but nowadays that is INCREDIBLY hard to come by, it may not even exist anymore.

The reason why people dont play rbg seriously is because lag7, ddos, wintrade and exploits like lifeg gripping FC to an unreachable spot.

The whole bracket is filled with aids, and what does blizzard do? Hotfix an exp bug within 10 hours, while all the shit in rbgs have existed since the first season of MoP is left ignored.

frequently players with peanut sized brains will make the argument that "3s has a higher skill cap than rbgs" whereas if they understood what a "skill cap" even refers to they would come to the realization that this is impossible

rbgs will always be both more competitive and stimulating for smarter players, those who are willing to apply knowledge of game mechanics to changes in the environment aka people who can think quickly in more than one dimension will come out on top.

let us for example imagine a situation in which two mice are placed in a box, and that they have to battle to the death. Clearly, the more physically capable, bloodthirsty mouse would come out on top and skill wouldn't be a factor [this is an analogy for playing a better comp, for all you arena people reading this].

Bailamos is now a Rank 1 Gladiator as well as an RBG God so I guess we will have to hear his verdict as he has mastered both brackets to their fullest potential

3s is a easy bracket based on comp that no one really enjoys
