#4426834 Titles for Banned players?

Posted Datacuss on 19 May 2015 - 11:42 PM

I like how people listen what the Dev's/GM's say. You realize they only do what is convenient for them. Therefore if they have to put in any ounce of work it won't be done. So if they have to put work in they wont remove them for the ladder. If it's troubling for them to DQ banned players they won't do it. It's pretty simple how blizzard works. They have a lot of people spread among other games. They don't care much about WoW as long as it's running smoothly.


#4420780 Good Bye

Posted Borngood on 08 May 2015 - 10:24 PM

As of today I am quitting World of Warcraft, a game I played and loved for 8 years. I learned many things over my time spent on the internet, whether it be good or bad, I would never trade it for anything else in this world. It was my pleasure to meet and talk with all of you over the years, and I wish all of you good fortune in all future endeavors. I will still be around in the community, but a bystander in what is hopefully a new era for this game. Special thanks to everyone who got to know me personally on this game, you know who you are.

Last but not least, I leave us with a message from one of my favorite authors, "Giving up smoking is the easiest thing in the world. I know because I've done it thousands of times."

Take care friends. -Borngood

i did not watch even a moment of this tournament because i don't believe in validating the remaining rbg tryhards, who will jump at any chance to gain arbitrary internet recognition by all means necessary

apologies to the few of you on each of these teams who are legitimate players propping up a wagon of mongrels, but not that many apologies, since you know as well as i do the kinds of retards you are carrying across the finish line so that they can hop off your back the moment you lunge your nose, proclaiming that they are an rbg master and an accepted and respected player of your ilk and have your phone number and totally hang out at your place and sometimes braid your hair, etc.

noting that i did not watch a moment of this tournament, i do have a few things to say:

this tournament could (should) have been a good thing, and you guys did to it what you do to everything you touch, which is to turn it into radioactive shit. it's not enough to simply make the rbg tournament feces, because that would imply only the people participating in it are affected by how shit it is, but apparently it was so terrible to watch that the entire audience, and even i, who avoided it, am contracting aids from the postgame discussion; thus: radioactive shit

i know from having spoken to members of each of your teams that none of you are particularly happy with your culture, yet here you are, having a group therapy session, again, in the most public of places

recall that although i know many players mock certain streamers for being overly nice, enthusiastic, or "fake", what these people have actually done is contained many problems they have with other players somewhat and resisted the urge to resort to desperate maneuvers to attack them either through their streams, arenajunkies, or of course, their routers. they have built a culture, in the worst time in the history of wow, where you can play arena safely at the top level without having to worry about being ddosed (so long as you pass the gate of bubble tryhards), and they can share this with other people via twitch, tournaments, etc. LOTS of these players have problems with other people, and although they are mocked for not doing what you guys are doing now, their culture has caused at least one portion of our game to not deteriorate into shit. i would recommend at least maintaining the facade of a more positive environment in the future, at least for the couple days long enough to have a tournament

i don't know what texture healing is. do not explain it to me, i am not interested

i do feel bad for those of you who tried hard in this tournament to make it work and got flushed along with the rest of the cesspool of the rbg community or the people who organized this tournament, who are absent from these discussions (and i'm sure do not have posting rights on arenajunkies despite the requirements being lowered to 1400 in one bracket and a grand total of 20 wins in arena on any character), but i would also encourage you to be less hateful toward these people, because to their credit they are at least trying to do something good - not everybody who wants to help the wow community has to have the nerd pedigree that the rest of us do

in conclusion, you knew it was going to be aids, i knew it was going to be aids, even the average casual player knew it was going to be aids. none of us can be mad that after watching or participating we have chronic diarrhea and are developing genital ulcers

tldr; another casual player who can't get into rbg's who claims arena is better to do

edit: forgot to mention this same guy claimed I win traded until I linked screenshots of going 20-0 vs his team rofl, also helped Bailamos get R1 on the very last day with videos being recorded. You're just another salty loser who sucks at this game so you continue to slander the greats that won't invite you to their groups.

#4418580 How do you feel about the pruning?

Posted Dhorothy on 05 May 2015 - 03:56 AM

Would be okay with it if it was evenly pruned. For instance I lost a core part of my cc; scatter shot. Mages have two schools of cc. Seems imbalanced, ladder confirms.


#4413771 Damage is actually too low

Posted inhume on 23 April 2015 - 04:11 PM

Here's the biggest problem I have with WoD, no one dies in a normal scenario.  The meta has become an ughfest of comps with a lot of control and burst kills. Unless you have a burst cooldown up with the entire opposing team cced, you are not killing your anyone. The top 2 healers have too many cooldowns to save their team and damage from spread pressure comps ( do those even exist anymore? ) is non existent.

The simple fact is, the damage from warlords is too low from steady pressure. Ever since the implementation of the 10(or is it 15? I can't remember) % damage reduction from trinket bonuses, spread pressure or steady pressure comps became non existent. Do you ever actually feel like you can kill someone in an arena game without a cooldown (killing spree, comet storm, crows, incarn....etc)? The answer is no. I believe that the stance that needs to be taken is to nerf the high damage abilities in pvp to reasonable amounts and let the regular damage hurt everyone.



TLDR: Buff regular damage nerf burst


#4415499 WHEN DOES THIS SHIT SHOW END?

Posted Lightningx on 27 April 2015 - 05:51 AM

can we just have a meta that isn't fucking lock/shaman/x or mage/druid/x FOR FUCKING ONCE PLEASE.

The last time we had a different meta was the shadowpriest/rsham(druid)/X meta of S12 or various hunter/melee/healer metas that spring up every so often but die down with nerfs

please blozzard. boomkin/windwalker/x meta pls. make game interesting. I'm sick of every fucking team having a god dam fucking rogue (18/20 games queued tonight is a rouge, most of them being RMD). I want season 12 back because though all of it's devastating flaws, rogues were the absolute worst class in the game for the first time in the history of the almighty fucking universe granted to us by the almighty holy seraphic dick licker holinka. I'm so sick of these absolute braindead teletubbies running around training healers spamming 111111112111111112 and thinking they're cool.

they say that a humans body is 60% water, well they are wrong because my body is 99% liquified fucking salt. I can't wait for this shit season to end so I can get my rank fucking one title and gladiator mount and fly around dogshield on my giant fucking primal gladiator's killing spree icon


#4406688 People getting banned on twitch for streaming vanilla servers.

Posted Voksen on 03 April 2015 - 11:50 PM

View PostMetaclassx, on 03 April 2015 - 11:15 PM, said:

It's unofficial content that's licensed to them. I don't understand why anyone could possibly think they would want a potential new player to go to twitch looking for World of Warcraft content, and stumble across a vanilla stream instead of the current game, especially since the vanilla stream isn't even really being run by blizzard. Lore and other devs specifically pointed out that it was not allowed over Twitter when asked about it.
Idk, not sure why people are surprised.

Argument  #1
Because there is an implied precedence of impartiality given the thousands of hours (and several years worth of) streaming from AT and other servers.  Its just that Blizzard is butthurt this time around as some "efamous" people have moved over and snowballed a lot of lemmings with them.  There is also an implied precedence of impartiality given that twitch.tv sponsors e.g. music talkshow and gamedev channels where the ownership and copyrights of the content are questionable and/or uncertifiable.

Argument #2
Because Blizzards rights to prosecution don't necessarily extend to streamers in the EU (yes I realize they have a presence in the EU but streaming rights are different there).  This is why some people are encouraging a move to hitbox because its more of a "by the people for the people" place to stream.

Argument #3
Because certain terms and conditions that were in effect during Vanilla do not transcend into modern grounds for legal action.  Basically every time there is a patch they have to force a new EULA and you have to sign it.
Since about 2008 Blizzard got smarter lawyers and slipped in redesigned EULA terms that basically make you "waive all rights".  However, Vanilla client/server and all the Vanilla related IP/EULA content predate this modern war on freedom of expression/play.  So it stands to reason they can only enforce so much (maybe they could enforce AT WOTLK and beyond...but certainly not Vanilla imo).

Argument #4
Because the cited reasons for the take-down/ban are based on the DMCA which was established in ~1996 and whether or not it extends several notions (such as the "fair use" clause) to streaming are still open for debate.  Basically "fair use" means you're allowed to get dressed up like a full blown night elf and run around telling everyone you're Illidan, because of course when it suits Blizz, thats ok, but when you're showing people their game, you know, thats bad.

Argument #5
Because its clearly just a blatant scum move.  They clearly can't take down the priv servers (not sure what the loopholes are but they've almost surely tried).  So instead, they go after the fans and threaten Twitch (lets be clear twitch basically has to err on the side of caution until this is all sorted out -- warnings before bans would've been nice, though).

I'm sure there are more reasons to be surprised, shocked, and irrate insofar as feeling once again abused by these trolls.  In my case it doesn't surprise me one bit (that it would be attempted) considering how rotten the company has become.

I can't even watch those movies anymore, especially TBC, since right now I'm better than all of those players combined at that time, and all I see is just moronic 1200 rated gameplay (which at that time might've been 2500) and contest of who can drown the other person in their saliva first. On the other hand, that was the magic back in the days, everyone being extremely shit, and only those that were slightly less shit became the gods.

Just watching no one utilize los, rogues mindlessly chasing shadowpriests rather than going for restealths, warriors like Sonydigital just kinda backpeddaling auto attacking people to death with their 20 seconds white swing timer etc etc. I wish everyone was shit again, I felt so skilled 100-0ing someone in cheapshot kidney because I timed my energy regen tick just before I opened.

But yeah, cannot watch this shit anymore and feel even 1/10000th of the excitement I used to get back then. Drakedog 4eva.
