I don't want to offense anyone personally, just saying if you can't pass a good rating, you don't have your place here, that's all.
Why would you give your opinion on pvp and mechanics if you are at 1400/1500 rating ? Make no sense. :)

Do you see lots of number crunching, in-debth discussions going on in here these days?

Loosening up a bit can only result in improvement of the site.

Just make a lounge for elitist geezers where they can bathe in their own excellence and stroke eachothers wangs and don't let anyone with less than 5 x titles get in there. Problem solved

Top 5% is a joke just because 1900 is already top 5%...

70-100+ teams getting drakes in BC didn't seem to be a problem back then, why is it now? On my Bgroup 1900 is rank 90 atm.

Also why do people see rating as a static value of skill? It got stupidly deflated, 1900 atm is much harder than 1900 in WoLTK or S9/early S10. I don't remember exactly but weren't glad cutoffs around 2k in BC? I remember people that got glad without being even able to buy their shoulders in S4 and those were at 2200.

I'm not saying they should be given away for free, but if the goal is to incite people to pvp and create an healthy competitive setting rewarding only 12 teams out of 2000+ feels a bit absurd.

We've seen what insanely exclusive rewards creates anyway, an underground market preventing legit players from acessing them anyway because a vast percentage of spots are taken by a handful of people monetizing those rewards for real life money.

I think it is safe to say that Blizzard employees read AJ so, thank you Blizzard for employing/promoting someone who actually does his job right. Hopefully GC won't have be involved in decision soon so Holinka can improve PvP even more.

There are still many who don't know his twitter or don't even have an account to tweet at him, I encourage you to do so since he actually replies to most tweets and unlike GC he actually says things that make sense.


I found more information regarding Holinka! You can find out more about him on his LinkedIn profile here:

Prior to working for Blizzard he seems to have been working on a game called Transformer: Fall of Cybertron. I've never heard about that game personally. The company only had 200 employees it seems.
And before that he was a Senior Game Designer at THQ. Pretty interesting!

Note : Would be great if this thread didn't get destroyed by pointless elitism or flat out trolling this website has been subject to for a while, i'm sure i'm not the only one that ran into that kind of issues before so i feel the discussion could be useful to more people than myself.

So, i'm playing with friends atm, both great guys i have fun with but without much experience at the higher end of the arena pole (their higher point was 2300ish in S8 where glad was like 2600-2700ish).

Always seem to see the same trend when i play in this kind of teams tough, first people are all pumped up and pretty much end up generating ridiculous expectations out of it "yeah gonna be nice gonna get glad easy blablabla".

Then we play and build our MMR and all is great again until we hit "that wall" where we actually need to start working towards improving as a team, ours was around 2k this season (wich is like top 50ish on our bgroup) atm. We were rank 35ish at some point so i don't think we were doing awefull for a new team working together.

Personally i try to be positive and i'm sure we can keep going if we work towards it and try to have fun and think its kinda pointless to worry too much about rating 2 weeks into the season, i try to spark some discussions, try out new strategies, try different calls etc to improve our chances while also listening to their opinions etc, to try to spark some teamwork.

Sadly most of those team i've been on always reach a point where people either cares way too much about rating or w/l while i don't feel its relevant or just feel discouraged at making no progress and just want to quit, or just complains about game balance non-stop or find a new team or whatever. I feel my current team has reached that point again and i'm really fucking tired of dealing with this, its not the first time and i don't feel it will be the last

How should i deal with it? Is 2 week as a new team enough to reach the top 0.5% of the ladder, if it doesn't work just call it quit or am i actually right to try and work for it? I just feel people always expect instant success and i'm sick of it.

Maybe its my attitude thats wrong? Maybe i should expect success faster like them?

I mean i want to keep playing with them, i know they're great players, one of them was Grand Master in SC2 at some point and the other is just really fun to have around, i'm just really tired of dealing with emo bullshit anytime there's a stone in the way.

Idk, only times i reached high points in the ladder was playing with past season's glad, experience goes a long way i guess.

The ladder being completly deflated doesn't help, they seem to make a big deal we're stuck at 1900-2k when by some of earlier season's standards we would be 2400+ judging by the rankings.

How do you deal with that kind of things, if some of you remember some of your first glad pushes, or even Rank 1 pushes, or things like that, is it normal? How should i try to motivate them again? Should we just chain reroll teams until we get a result that seems to satisfy them? Out of ideas.
