#4208743 The Right Thing To Do

Posted Melbyz on 15 September 2014 - 11:55 PM

Hello friends and strangers!

Recently I've read many threads accusing people of ddosing and cheating. I myself has experienced it along with many others (Being ddosed that is). The right way to deal with these things, in my opinion, is to stop playing with the people involving themselves in these kind of activities. It is simple, you exclude them and their partners from RBGs, arenas, bgs etc. Wow is a game enjoyed the most when played with others and if you remove the "others" the game wont be so fun no more. But it is every single wow players responsablity to work against these kind of people rather than joining them.

Jaimexo made a thread just 10 minutes ago about someone in his team being ddosed by Kuliox and for some reason it got removed, and so did my response.

Yet again, this is the only real way to deal with this effective. It's not one person doing it, it won't go away when these people stop. Others will come and all we can do is boycott them as players. Exclude them in every possible way. When they come crawling back with apologizes, we just keep ignoring and excluding them.

The point is. It if it worth to swap shield 1h. You might achieve some armor. But you lose out on counter pressure + a global from swapping weapons can just as much be a live saver then that extra bit of armor.

You also lose quite a bit of hp. So if your healer it's on cc chain it's actually a bad idea to swap.

why are people wanting glad from 2s again?

its the most unbalanced thing to ever exist every warrior, shaman, monk and priest would get it whilst still being relatively shit in real brackets.

2s had a fuck huge variation of comps back in the day and double dps teams were plenty


People considered 2s THE bracket until it was removed. The community did not start brushing it off as skilless until after blizzard removed the titles from it.


#4186195 Arena 5v5 titles will be removed

Posted Bigmoran on 05 August 2014 - 08:38 AM

and of course someone will call me out for being bias or something, thats fine--i accept that. of the 2 rank 1 titles i've gotten this expansion, 1 has been from 5s. i always push for rating in the bracket im interested in. at the moment that happens to be 5s. lately i've had no motivation to push rating in 3s.

BUT ON TOPIC

it just sickens me to see the naivety of the general AJ population and PvP population as a whole. the anti 2v2, 5v5, and RBG attitudes of this community are really bad for the game itself. if you like WoW and want to be playing it in the future, you should try playing every bracket. the same thing goes for blizzard. i think they might be killing an already shrinking pvp population with this change.


#4186192 Arena 5v5 titles will be removed

Posted Bigmoran on 05 August 2014 - 08:36 AM

thats dumb.

it was dumb of them to remove titles from 2s aswell. every bracket is competitive. the only reason to shove people into the small box of 3v3 is to streamline the game to become more of an esport.

the only reason 5s has a bad image is because of the cheating minority (myself included). there are fewer teams and more cheating teams, so naturally its the bracket everyone points to when they think of generally scummery. if you ignore the cheaters and focus on the actual competitive aspect of 5s, its definitely a bracket that should be respected. overall there are less balance issues in 5s (although R M SP RSHAM x is 100% the best comp), and many different comps can be successful.


#4185220 Deaf player hitting 2200 in 3s

Posted Elixa on 03 August 2014 - 06:22 PM

Hitting 2.2k 3 seasons in a row was pretty awesome for me. I ran god comp with friends for funzies, but didn't realize were doing so good for our first night of playing together at 2300 mmr and no they are not gladiators. So yeah thought I'd try this, in search of players for arena or rbgs. Over 2k-2.1k cr on 4 toons this season for both arena and rbg. Looking to play on my 2100 cr hpriest for both 3s/5s and 2040 cr dk for rbgs. 2k cr in arena as well, but prefer rbgs more on it. Maryjane#1856

Cheers.

sorry mr 0 time glad

Why do people still believe having titles or not having them equals being good or bad.

Especially considering this game is so partner dependent.


#4158897 Incredible amount of crying

Posted washboardabsx on 29 June 2014 - 03:26 PM

I can't believe people are crying about the catch-up cap. Wow you have 20k to cap? Be glad they even allow catching up now. Does everyone forget a mere season or two ago when there wasn't any catching up? Or how about all the BS pve gear? Yep that's gone too.

I agree deserter sucks for I indeed tanked my 2s rating too. But it had to be implemented. 2s is the gateway to arena and 1100's should never be facing gladiators. We want more participation in arena and by having them hazed by glads in the 1100 bracket is counterproductive. It turns many away.

And flavour. Stop. You're too white for that sh*t. And frankly no one respects it. You sound like a wanna-be vanilla ice ice tea ice cube gangsta fruitcake. Right when Regentlord left the flame is carried by someone else, you...seriously why does someone always fill in the others place since I can remember?

Finally @ Lolflay...what's happened? Since TBC you were my priest hero always adding great input to the game. I loved reading your insightful posts and you definitely made me want to be like you on my priest. But ever since you've left the game all your posts seem to be trolling or complaints. Like an old renowned star that's become senile about the sport they've played. It's depressing.

The only time it'd be a skill cap that's tangible if there are major offensive and defensive benefits to dancing. Just throwing requirements on abilities isn't going to do anything but make people annoyed.

Except for the fact it costs 200% more rage and can break all CC within 8 yards of you.


#4149530 why does so many people care about models and looks?

but nobody still gave me any "reason" for wanting shit to look better

It's a game, people wants to have fun, and having better model/graphics can be a reason.

I'm one of those who like having a cool character, with cool transmog. (I look forward to the new model)
Why do you think i play draenei? For the racial? :P

No, i like the animations, the way it walks, the way it casts (Despite the fact they seem to have a broom in their ass) etc...

I play better with a better tmog and with a race i like playing.

When i look mmo-champion to see the news, i try to avoid the lore spoilers (I'm reading quests, yes, because i'm a old Baldur's gate player, so i like doing new quests :D), and i look :

- PvP changes.
- Paladin changes.
- New model, spell effects, weapon/gear model.
- Pet battle (I traded my Lightbringer tabard for a rare-pet for example.)

Don't blame people because they like something you don't :D

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.
