#3817164 US gemming resilience EU gemming damage, why the difference?

Posted Vanguards on 07 December 2012 - 11:50 PM

There's a common misconception that PvP Power negates Resilience. This actually isn't true because Resilience is factored in after PvP Power in a sense. Lets say a Frostbomb hits for 100,000. With 50% PvP Power it hits for 150,000. However, if a person has 50% Resilience, it would hit for 75,000 in the end.

Now lets pretend the Mage gemmed more PvP Power and the target gemmed more resilience. The PvP Power became roughly 60%. The Resilience became 55%.
Frost Bomb not hits for 160,000, but with 55% Resilience it hits for 72,000. This is not the exact PvP Power to Resilience scale; but that should give you the picture that Resilience = generally more damage reduction than PvP Power's increased damage point to point with full PvP Gear.

edit: In the end you can't just go one way or the other for everyone. If you play a class like Enhance Shamans, gemming Resilience is probably smart since they get trained over half the time. If you play a class like Warriors, it's probably good to use PvP Power against non-Casters and Rogues.

If you have enough conquest points it's probably best to have 2 sets ready. Wear the set depending on if the team is going to hit you or not. However with the upgrading gear factored in this season it's going to be a lot harder to do this.

Mm neither of those are true.

Sodah did however play 1-3 games with my teammates while i was gone, though. On his own priest.
His MMR was complete shit, though. So not like it was really worth much. Would have been better off having benys and hornmitten play on the charter like they did for everyone else :P.

Edit: After the season was extended.

No I played on your priest actually.

#3325417 Reckoning Wintrading - Nevz, Diziet, Vanguards

Posted Kollektivv on 27 June 2011 - 11:36 AM

The story begins with 2 teams...

Vanguards/Debao/Diziet's team; Sushi
Nevz alt's Team; LoL... Wait what?; The link to this teams armory seems broken because of invalid characters in the name, but they are currently at the top of US Reckoning BG ladder.

The team Sushi has purposefully traded losses to the team Lol... Wait what?.
The team Lol... Wait what? had climbed the ladder to a position close to rank one, and then once reaching this rating, organized games with Sushi, who lost to them, so that Lol... Wait what? could take the rank 1 spot.

Here's a few screenshots of what initially went down;

First Game Win-traded

Second Game Win-traded

Third Game Win-traded

Fourth Game Win-Traded

"Sushi" had nothing to lose by organizing this trade, since they hold rank 1 in 3v3 by a large margin, so can afford to lose rating in 5v5, to the team of "Lol... Wait What?".

Also after professing that his team 'Sushi' would pass the rank 1 team at that time Jim Carrey ft The Mask, Alex was happy to trade wins to secure his rank 1 title in 3v3.
Posted Image

When they traded with each other, neither team was playing with their actual line up, Team Sushi traded without Vanguards (the ret paladin they played all their games with) while "Lol... Wait What?" queued without a mage (who had played all the games up until that point) and instead played with TWO priests (this is one of the main indications that they intended to trade, playing with two priests in one 5v5 team would greatly hinder their ability to climb the ladder, especially when queuing against top-notch teams)

Posted Image
Both teams playing comps they don't usually play while they trade.

The reason they traded with two priests on the team, is because the mage on the team Lol... Wait What? has really low 5v5 mmr
Posted Image
The team, despite the mage's mmr, is 2754.
So if you factor in the mmr gain from the second priest (around 2.5k+ mmr) they would have a much higher team MMR than 2754, so when they traded they would gain upwards of 20 points a win from Sushi.

Another thing to note is that "Sushi" has not Q'd 5's for MONTHS and the first time they all log on and Queue 5's, they vs the (at the time) rank 2 team. This means that they clearly ARRANGED to play with each other, which is "selective Queuing" and is against Blizzard's rules.

"Sushi" also picked up some random priest (most likely with High MMR) to play with them, instead of their own team mate "Vanguardy", who they had played with all season long.

Posted Image

Following these initial trades three members from the 5v5 team Sushi; Venoma, Diziet and Alex
traded with 3 members from  the 5v5 team Lol... Wait what?; Zephcow, Worstlock, Worstspriest

They were repaying the favor, by attempting to feed Venoma and Diziet into personal rating range, so that they could receive the rank one title from the 3v3 bracket in their team Sushi Day.

Both teams vs each other 3:14 am
Posted Image

Same again; 3:21 am
Posted Image

Nevz's (Zephcow, worstspriest, worstlock) team goes 0-3
Posted Image

The funny thing here, is that the rank 1 3v3 team, Sushi Day, had not queued for months, sitting on the rank 1 spot on the ladder. Then today, they just happen to immediately queue into the players they traded with in 5v5 only moments before.

So lets recap on all the things they've done:

1 - Win-traded; Both teams were online for about 3 hours Queuing and the only teams that either team managed to VS were themselves. Note: They Q'd at 1AM and onwards, hoping to avoid legitimate 5's teams. Following 5v5 they traded 3v3 wins.

2 - Arranged to Queue against each other.

3 - Also possible ACCOUNT SHARING - Look at "Worstmage" armory page http://us.battle.net...tatistic#21:152 ,  a whole host of new achievements and his highest 3v3 Personal rating - 2282. A 2300 player becomes a 2700 player over the course of 2 days. (Most likely affiliated with Arena rating selling websites).
We also have reason to believe that the shaman "Zephcow" , "Worstpriest" and "Worstspriest" are account sharing as well.

Something cute that Nevz said in skype:

[8:43:22 PM] Aetarius: holy fuck
[8:43:29 PM] Aetarius: 2747?!
[8:43:36 PM] Aetarius: dayummmm
[8:43:46 PM] Aetarius: who are the dudes your playing with dude?
[8:51:04 PM] Nevz: mad?
[8:51:13 PM] Nevz: you don't q up and you lose out
[8:51:28 PM] Nevz: q'd for fucking 6 hours straight
[8:51:46 PM] Nevz: I even told you all the teams we fought
[8:54:09 PM] Aetarius: o well
[8:54:18 PM] Aetarius: you guys worked hard for it
[8:54:22 PM] Aetarius: congrats
[9:01:10 PM] Nevz: rofl you thought we wintraded
[9:01:12 PM] Nevz: thats classic

Thread on the wow forums saying the same shit.

Feel free to make the following GM Ticket and report these trouble makers (you will have to edit in the links yourself, aj shortens them);

The arena team Lol... Wait what? (http://us.battle.net...a/reckoning/5v5) attempted to gain an unfair advantage in obtaining the rank 1 5v5 arena title by trading wins with the team Sushi (http://us.battle.net...nmaw/5v5/Sushi/)

For further evidence please view this thread:

This is a serious matter and against the terms of service, as it ruins the competitive playing experience for PVPers.

Naughty little Nevz  :lol:


Nevz own partner calls him out;

#3050037 Quartz Profile Resetting

Posted jaredd on 08 February 2011 - 06:40 PM


4.0.6 removed Drain Mana, and Quartz is confused by this.

Open modules/Player.lua, find the line with GetSpellInfo(5138), and remove the line. Or if you prefer, comment the whole line out. I can't say that this is the -only- bug occurring since the patch, but it's the only one I encountered personally, and removing 1 line fixed it.
