I think some people are delusional to think it's AJ's or general pvp community's fault that new players quit and the participation becomes worse and worse every season.
A group of RL friends of mine came back to wow, to my server(they were all 2.2k+ players), I explained them new stuff, new addons, I've been to their skype calls and so on. They started to adapt to the new pvp system but they lose awful a lot of games due to someone on the enemy team deciding to do 80k dps in arena. Most of the time, the guy doing it is invis, or pom ringed the entire team, webbed melee, sent 48 pets etc.
If you take 3 friends and run arena, you will almost never get a T1 comp , you'll have a T3+ comp most of time and those comps get hurt by comps that pop everything and win.
If you are watching streams, any balanced melee/caster/healer comp at 2.6k rating, with R1 players, can easily lose to a 2.2k thug cleave or mage spell cleave.How do you think this projects to sub 1.8k rating? There is only so much that people can take especially when they don't know why they lost, why they took an unavoidable 80k dps. My friends stopped playing after getting stuck at 1900 and those are above average gamers who had 2.2k xp in previous expansions, simply because they thought it's not worth the dedication. I can't imagine how it is for 1.5k people.
It's not only about newcomers,most people who played arena religiously also gave up, because Blizard is way too slow with fixing things that are broken beyond belief. Again people who don't play cheese comps get hurt more because they get dominated with close to no chance of winning by broken dmg T1 comps. So yeah, it's not about the community, it's the current design and state of the game.
New people who want to learn and improve, you can check out streams, ask streamers questions, you can download gladiatorlossa addon , there are bunch of guides by top pvpers on youtube, on almost all classes.
Try not to play bad comps, try to react to offensive cooldowns using your defensives, or you'll lose in 2 seconds.
Lack of understanding. Plz list tell me how OP resetting all my many ccs are feel free to put some numbers in there since we have a total of 3 ccs reset by readiness.
Are you a real person or are you part of an experimental project that tests people on AJ? You get to re-cc people over again and if you ever fuck up the first one, you have a moron friendly mechanism that allows you to do it again. This should be obvious but it wasn't to you I guess. Also, as healer, you are put in an unending cc chain, you are out of it just for a few globals, ,you start casting and each dr'd cc interrupts your casting while your partner dies.
Also, I am not going to go through hours of footage but you can go to www.twitch.tv/nadagastt , open the vods of the MLD, the longer one, where he dies to hunter teams , some without blocking. Venruki's streams have probably more of those but that should give you an idea.
While you watch them, you make sure to send sodez, nadagastt and venruki tips on twitch about how to eat traps and play better because they are bad since they lose to hunters. Just remind them that they are bunch of retards who can't eat traps, how important eating a trap is when people get raped in silence + scatter in actuality to fucking retarded hunter damage.
tldr: everyone is a whining baddie, except Rockyson who has the complete understanding of the game
Inbefore we ask for their accounts on AJ to be banned and a moderator says "not enough proof".
We have recently revised our policy to enable immediate permanent bans to those known to be scamming/abusing the community.
As part of this, Kaska and friends were permanently banned from the site on all characters 2 weeks ago and will no longer be allowed to post on the board. They are now also permanently banned on their new accounts, as well as character access permanently removed.
We want to encourage ArenaJunkies to be a place for open discussion about tactics, comps, class and arena/rbg balance. Those wishing to use the site to recruit for 'other' activities (be it win trading, dosing, boosting or any other unsolicited act) will be immediately suspended from the site and have their character's access removed.
