#4588179 5 Things I Hate About WoD

Posted Glink on 23 June 2016 - 08:35 AM

Hey guys, pretty much everyone hates WoD, but I wanted to pin point 5 exact reasons that led to the current state of the game and make a video about it. So check it out and tell me what you think!

By the way, I'm aware that the mere notion of me posting my own content on here might be annoying to alot of you, but bare in mind that I'm only posting content that is relevant to WoW / Arena, I'm putting it in the video section specifically, and its not as if there are dozens of other people posting videos and such anyways.

#4575492 A Perspective On WoW Arena And Esports

Posted Bigmoran on 13 April 2016 - 02:03 AM

the reason why riot is able to remain the PREMIER esports company is how they treat their players.

each professional player BY DEFAULT receives a base salary from riot. on top of that, riot actually sponsors events.

from my understanding, one of the pitfalls of blizzard and esports is how awful blizzard was/(perhaps still is) at supporting events. blizzard would require organizers to PAY them in order to have tournaments, while a company like riot PAYS organizers to have tournaments AND pays players.

Hey bud, I've been waiting a long time to say this, but here it is: I am actually a lead developer at Blizzard. I have been reading balance essays on Arena Junkies for a long time, but this right here is the balance post/essay/vlog that has finally convinced me to make sweeping changes to the game and bring arena back to life. I can't believe we didn't think of this earlier, you are a genius. You did it kid, this is the one, WoW is saved.


#4575264 A Perspective On WoW Arena And Esports

Posted Glink on 12 April 2016 - 01:51 AM

Hello there. I've been thinking alot recently about WoW arena, the state it's in now, how it used to be, the future of it, and its relation to the esports scene in general.

I decided to make a video explaining why Blizzard is missing out big time on Arena, how to correct that, and it's relation to esports in general.

I thought it would be appropriate to share it here since this is a forum dedicated to discussing arena. Take a listen if you're interested and leave me some feedback if you have any, both here and on the video.

Here is the link, please note the quality options may take a few minutes to adjust:

#4562229 Your road to gladiator

Posted Knaittiz on 27 January 2016 - 01:10 PM

It all started when I was 13 and fed up with RuneScape, having lost an Abyssal Whip in the wilderness due to my friend spamming "@@@@@@" on top of my character so I couldn't see my health bar. I was so tilted and wanted to play another game. Not too many days later I saw an ad of "World of Warcraft" which looked awesome! I had to try it out, so I went on "worldofwarcraft.com" and downloaded the trial version.

I tried a night elf hunter at first, inspired by no other than Legolas. I kept fighting all sorts of feline enemies and kept dying because I was fighting them with a god damn fishing pole for some reason. Somehow I got "resurrection sickness" and my character felt even weaker, so I decided to reroll a warrior. Best decision ever, I had so much fun playing a warrior! I remember taking the boat to Darkshore and being invited to my first guild ever, <Bears of Redemption>.

Darkshore was such a beautiful place. I stayed there until I was level 20, killing countless crabs on the shores... "Why am I not leveling up to 21 already?" I asked myself often... until some helpful fellow explained to me that a trial account is capped at level 20. What a fool I was. Around these times I also noticed I am playing on the US servers. I killed two birds with one stone and bought the full version of WoW and made an account on EU servers.

I kept playing night elf warrior, it just had a good feeling to it. I started getting into PvP very early, queing some AB/WSG between questing at lvl 20+. when I hit level 45 I already had 5000 honorable kills. At level 60 I decided I want to be like my childhood hero Maydie and play BGs with the cool Grand Marshal gear all day... that dream died very soon and I started going for max level (70, I started when TBC came out) and oh boy I was ready to get into PvP again after getting that max level.

I found out about "arena" which also seemed really exciting to me, so I searched for a partner from the trade chat of my RPPvP server and found a holy paladin named "Uncertainty" and I was ready to roll. Our first arena was on Lordaeron, against two hunters. Being a night elf I thought hiding in the starting room in shadowmeld was a great idea. It also helped me calm down a bit since I stood there shaking for atleast a minute or two before charging in... well my first arena was easier than expected, I guess all that practice in BGs paid off, we won with ease! From that moment on I knew this was my calling. World of Warcraft PvP started being more important than school or friends. I would stay up late. Play a bg in the morning before going to school. Think about wow in school. Come home and play wow. That was my life, and I was happy that way. Season two started and I started experimenting in 3s.

First I tried some RWD which was actually a real comp back then with a rogue from my guild and some resto druid, we faced two of our guild mates who were running HLP. We tunneled the lock down and beat them, felt good man. That is when I got to know the warlock I just destroyed and we became friends. We started playing 2v2 together not knowing that our comp is actually carbage. We still managed to hit 2087 rating as warrior/warlock in 2v2 with no voice communication (I was a squaker and playing in the living room talking to myself on the computer would seem weird). That is when we realised we were no ordinary RPPvP-server player.

We started gaining some reputation and people would admire our achievements. We were ready to take it to the next level, 3v3. We found a surprisingly good holy paladin from trade chat, Gadr (I miss you buddy, where are you man?) that guy was insanely good for a random dude we found. We played the rest of TBC with him, without voice communication as usual, reaching over 2300 in 2v2 and 3v3. In 2v2 we tanked a lot of rating with him one day and decided to call it quits and disband the team out of shame. Turns out the rating would have still been enough for gladiator. In 3v3 my warlock friend disappeared for a couple weeks so I thought hey why not play with a gladiator elemental shaman I saw in Ironforge, and so we did. I was so excited to hit people with my heroism and windfury totem... But we lost our gladiator rating in 3v3 that day aswell. I was so foolish. My warlock friend was not pleased. He still hasn't forgiven me about it and I hear about it very often. I'm sorry, I thought you quit the game. I didn't understand the fuss about titles back then anyway, but I would be happy to have a TBC drake now, oh well.


TLDR: play a lot, maybe record your games and write down your mistakes, repeat until you don't make any!
