Deathknights & Ferals say hi

You gotta be pretty damn bad to get solo'd by a Feral. Counter his Berserking / Incarnation with your CDs then enjoy 2.5 minutes of wet noodle damage without MS or good lockdown. The only way a Feral is putting out any pressure on his own when his CDs are down is when he successfully interrupts on CD so his Tiger's Fury is constantly reset through the PvP bonus.

As for DK: Maybe if stars align? Haven't played mine this addon but I can't recall my healer ever dying to one 1v1 in 2s (at 2.2k MMR first day of the season) before like 40% dampening.

Haven't ran into Rets yet? Stun Bubble wings, cant be cc'd and retard damage. But Rogues have to be nerfed. 1 Ret does the damage of 2 rogues combined lol. I haven't done the math but...

Rets can't solo any semi-decent healer. They have strong burst and good utility but they're reliant on their 2 minutes burst CDs (see: same CD as trinket, same/higher CD as many defensive cooldowns) and have much lower lockdown compared to Rogues as well as no MS.

Just to clarify here, I'm not saying the game is balanced outside of Combat Rogues whatsoever, but I get the feeling most if not all players defending that spec are completely delusional to what state this game is currently in.

this event is the sole reason wow died as an esport

pretty off topic but wow was at its height as an esport when that happened and still getting bigger numbers than halo by close to triple

mlg tried really hard to push wow as an esport but blizzard was very resistant, charging bigger and bigger fees to broadcast and refusing to give decent support (spectator client etc)

it was dropped at the peak of its popularity because blizzard essentially killed it. jp mcdaniels talked about it a bunch a couple years back

1. It is 24seconds, not 20. If you try to kidney within 20seconds it will be DR'd -- learn the game please

2. It is dodged, parried quite a bit, it does not have 41% update -- learn to statistic

Stop crying, and look at the ladders - it isn't flooded with combat rogues at the highest levels.. you know this. There are alot of combat rogues but that is because that is the ONLY viable spec.

C'mon, grow up.

1. Its 20 seconds. I understand the way DR works. Now that Rogues have CP that stick to them and not their targets, it's completely viable and oftentimes commonplace for a Rogue to 8s Kidney someone, then when it's off CD they 8s Kidney someone else (like the person who is peeling the Rogue off of their healer - or the healer if they're on a different target).  Learn the game please.

2. If you're having your Kidneys parried, you should probably spec out of the abomination that is BoS and into something like Step so you can be behind your target before you try to land a stun as important as Kidney.  Either that or you should get a little better at the game instead of blindly Kidneying into someone regardless of what way they're facing.

I find this funny because I never see you mouth breathers crying in the other forums at obviously OP classes saying how you want to be able to tell how great a charactere is being played... BUT you are insinuating that only Reckful/woundman/generic level rogues should be placed.. all others should accept their shit specs while the OP classes are given passes by you.... dip.

I'm not saying that at all, and it's funny that's all you got out of it. Across every arena season (and beforehand) there has been a relatively large skill gap between a really great Rogue and one who is mostly mediocre. Things like pooling energy, saving Kick (when it was on the GCD), Prep Kicking for a kill, Vanish immuning CC, etc (there are loads of other examples - these are relatively simple). Even back to the days of Happyminti or Dahis in Vanilla where Blinding an off target then Vanish - Sapping was new-ish or the need to take Improved Gouge to get a restealth off.

That goes and extends all the way to recent seasons, with a few outliers where it was a much less skillfully rewarding class to play. I'm not saying only Reckful level Rogues should succeed. Reckful level players will succeed regardless of what they queue (for various reasons). I'm saying that right now, with Combat the way it is and an 8s Stun CC that doesn't break on damage and has a 20s CD - There is a much larger cushion for you make mistakes. And even though I'm sure there are a decent amount of Combat Rogues on the ladders that are playing well, you don't necessarily have to play well as Combat to succeed. That's something everyone who cares about the PvP environment should be firmly against.

I'm done responding to people who obviously have zero idea what they're talking about.

6 second kidney while dancing you cheap shot after it wears off that it 9.5 and if you cheap again that is 12 seconds.
You are the kind of person that defend this shit mechanic.

Maybe come back and post when you got the hang of the absolute basics of the game.

dunno if anyone mentioned it but people seem to think that rogues got 8sec kidney in MoP?
well combat rogues had 8sec kidney in cata too, wasn't just in mop, so they're right when they say it's been like that for a long time.
in s13, throne of thunder 2set:
(2) Set : Increases the duration of your finishing moves as if you had used an additional combo point, up to a maximum of 6 combo points.
so as combat then it was 9.45 sec kidney

maybe people can try this now? dunno if last expansion set bonus is active in arena lol =))

combat was just insanely slow in cata, and sub was infinitely better so ye.

Id like to point out its feather > guise > then fear, cant use feathers while in guise. And priests can stop it by spectral guising back, hunters stop it with flare, druids stop it with typhoon, shamans can stop it with tremor totem, warlocks can stop it with shadowfury.

Its a terrible example saying guise fear cant be countered and no skill opportunity to stop it, because thats 5 popular classes right there that can. Almost any 3v3 comp you face there will be someone on the team with these abilities.

Go farm treasures, usually 50+ fragments in each and they respawn after a while.

(chests in Molten Quarry only contains about 5 so not neccessary to pick them up)

I miss mop :(


Anyway this season feels like S5. Zero variety, cleaves everywhere, feels unfun to play. I say chill the fuck out, do your games per week to gear up and wait for them to nerf everything that's dumb, and then be ready to cry until next season about the thing that arises from the ashes. Always was like that, always will be.

People have found out how to bug mind control to cause people in arena to get "kicked off" their own team, losing instantly.

Priests run at you and spam mind control until it happens. (There is more to it, but I don't want it to spread it more)

This is an insane bug and will ruin the ladder if it doesn't get fixed.

looks to me like your partner got MC'd and you accidentally tabbed to him and killed him because #rets

thus leading your partner to become angry and leave your group

What are you even talking about?  EMFH does share a CD with trinket.  I'm usually not one to rating bash, but dude.. damn.
he means the trinket effect built into desecrated ground should share a cooldown with EMFH/pvp trinket, in the same way that wotf does

which is not a massively horrible suggestion, despite the fact that half the forum is treating him like he said dks need a damage buff or something :)

game is much more fun when casters aren't carried by their class

as soon as it gets to the point where even a braindead MLS lives for 5 minutes no matter what, you guys can have your shitty game back so every game can be lock/shaman/x again

instead of the games we have currently, which mostly don't go to dampening

it isn't fun to play, it isn't fun to watch. it's supposed to be a deathmatch, not a tab targeting dot contest

go fuck yourselves, priest is the best healer to be op
