I appreciate AJ for the MS Rage Paint thread, drama for days back in in the old Battlegroup subsections, Jimjim's posts, watching people cry about getting banned for cheating and keeping me up-to-date with the current EU Regionals scandal

i was really inspired Hunter legend G-links because he showed me that even when you're mentally retarded you can still get rating after 8 years of playing a video game. look at me now


#4597120 Which player(s) did you look up to?

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a good time!

I was a bit bored with lots of spare time, so I decided to do something I wanted to do for a long time - open a thread like this, asking the (mostly highest rated) people of AJ which players worked as an inspiration for them in order to achieve Glad or other prestigious rank 1 titles. You all must have surely had someone you looked up to before you reached to the heights on which you are today. If so, who were they and on what class/spec?

The reason I am doing this is because I was curious to see which people were admired by who, and because I felt like this is a nice way of ''warming up'' the climate in this site and make everyone appreciate some other players more. For example, here I go:

Ret Pala: Vanguards, Avengelyne, Mystic, Elypsia. For me, it all started with Vanguards right here on this site, when I first found his Ret guide. This was the first time I felt the urge to start playing more competitively and made me search for more and more tips on how I could improve. One other reason for which I always looked up to Sam is because he could run almost anything he wanted to Glad/rank1 range and make it seem effortless. Later on I came to know about Mystic and saw his MoP Ret video which hyped me a lot, and eventually heard about Avengelyne (who has helped me out a bunch by answering all of my Ret questions! <3) and met Elypsia in-game. I guess any rating I managed to achieve as Ret is all due to them. Thank you, every one of you.

Holy Pala: Xonika, Jimjim. I always admired Xonika because (imho) he is the closest HPala to the maximum skillcap of this spec. Jimjim was a very inspirational character for me because he always played with different comps/talents/glyphs/enchants/etc and he always made it work in his own, unique way.

Warrior: Well, as shameful as it is to admit, at some point when we were new to the game we all followed some Swifty and Bajheera tips or admired Klinda's crit montages. They were an inspiration for me to start playing the Warrior class, and I fell more in love with it thanks to Trillebartom and JoeFernandes! JoeFernandes is one of these streamers who note any mistakes they do during their gameplay which help out a LOT on improving.

Enh Shaman: Jaime and Diablous. Maybe even Vanguards on his alt Shaman a little bit! >_> Jaime -despite all the hate being thrown at him- is actually a really good player and has always kindly helped me out each time I felt had spec-related questions. Diablous was hyping me up with his Enhance videos and some really good editing combined with awesome music. My favorite one is The Black Mountain!

Resto Shaman: This spec is something that I always wanted to try. When I saw Cdew streaming 2 or 3 times, I think this was when I made the decision to try out Resto Shaman and get a taste of the fun that this spec has. What really intrigued me was the way that he would save every cd for an appropriate situation and use it accordingly without panicking, as if he had evrything that could possibly happen under control. Double melees made me sick tho! X_X

WW Monk: Voltarius/x. Yes, tbh I have to admit being a fan of that French team I guess. :P I first saw Voltariux playing some 2v2 matches with Volkovitch as WW/Dk on like 2.400+, and that amazed me. Voltariux knew exactly what he needed to do and when, and was an absurd livelord.

Dk: Volkovitch, Mes. Both of them are quite chilled and insanely good. I am still jelly of Mes's Dark Sims! ._. He had (I don't know if he is still playing) a godlike awareness and knew exactly when to use Dark Sim to its full potential, making it seem the most OP thing in game. Volko has a Youtube channel on which he used to upload gucci videos of 3v3 arena footage. I feel like I learned a lot from there as well (not only about Dk).

Mage: Hansol. Yup. Hansol's world PvP videos always hyped the shit out of me, especially his 5.4 movie (Hansol 4) which I would reccomend everyone to see, even if they are not playing Mage.

That's all for now I guess. Will edit later on to fix grammar mistakes etc.

So, what are your thoughts? Who did you (use to) look up to before you achieved what you guys have?

Jaime has been DQ'd from regionals for playing with Blizo's boosts, will this mean Blizo is DQ'd?

Zunni says it was scummy to consider replacing Lyanne, to find out his team considered replacing him with Wlock when they were found to be good on beta



regionals brings out the best in people

and if a person or player is simply to awful, or dont work within a team, why is it so wrong and horrible to replace them?

Loyalty? A concept apparently forgotten when those "esport" events occurs and money is on the line (Hello Voltariux). If you sign as a team for a tournament, you should stay with this team from A to Z. But if the rulesets allow to do such things like destroying the joy of one member just for gameplay reason (And not only true reason like you can't go because of work, diseases or any medical reasons) well... the rules are the rules after all. Even as despicable as they are.

If he was awful, why pick him at first, use him and dispose of him when your objectif is complete (With his assistance). Don't you have a better guy to qualify at first or did you planned to do that long time ago? (Which would be hilarious and evil as fuck, for an external point of view of course).

Where are the rulesets btw? I can use some read at work.


#4592287 Vanguards Retribution Paladin PvP Guide (7.0.3)

Posted Vanguards on 20 July 2016 - 02:05 PM

Updated for 7.0.3. Patch is early and many things are still being tested. Please feel free to comment on any of the choices I made.

My general feel for Rets in this pre-patch is they're relatively underwhelming and mobility seems to be a huge issue. However, it's still quite early and artifacts + Honor Talents will change the game a lot in Legion.
