why would I want to watch a "competitive" game where chances to win depend on your equipment in part, and you people don't have the same access to the same equipment... nice "esport"
2016-09-30 21:43
pretty sure all 6 players got near max level gear.

I don't care that a game is competitive for the 2% no lifers who can afford to PVE and PVP all day to farm max equipment. My problem with wow "pvp" is that different people don't have the same chances to begin with. I think it's really unfair that someone with a new account (maybe max level but that's it) doesn't have access to the same stuff (and hence, chances to win) than a nolifer. The no lifer will just roflstomp the guy even though he plays like shit. Dunno for you but for me that just makes the game non competitive at all and not admissible to e-sports.

i agree 100% but given the nature of the game it's admirable they finally got a somewhat working competitive format. i wouldn't have believed you if you said there would be a wow 3v3 arena stream with 50k viewers and SK gaming 3 years ago. they don't care about what we think duh.. i'm happy for them. although i wouldn't ever want to grind for that shit lol. and maybe in cs newcomers have more access to stuff but face it they have to grind as well for 5 years in order to become somewhat near competitive level. just different kind of grinding. and a lot more frustrating in cs lol because stop playing for 2 weeks and you lost a lot of aim (in my case :(((( )

I played wow long ago and I remember that I needed 1 whole pvp season just to get the gear. And then had to absolutely start at the beginning of the season or else RIP higher rankings ... Maybe it has changed somewhat but still. In CS everybody has the same odds and there is no grind which should be standard for a game to be labeled as competitive and with an "e-sports" scene. That being said, the fact that you have to play CS regularly to maintain your skill is very frustrating indeed, but I don't see how that could possibly be changed
2016-09-30 22:11
there is no grind but skills don't come for free.. when you're spamming irc matches in the past that's a form of grinding. :p it's not comparable but it bears some resemblance.
2016-09-30 22:12
in wow skill doesn't fall from the sky either... oh wait nevermind stuff>skill

in legion gear is just a minor factor in pvp and the tiny bit of pvp gear which is left can get easily aquired even by the "casuals" in pvp areas the attributes of your class are scaled depending on your specc, you can basically start pvping as a fresh lvl 110 without problems.
2016-09-30 22:08
yes i also heard that you can convert your PvE gear to high level PvP gear. or smth.
2016-09-30 22:13
oki well that sounds like a nice step in the right direction at least
2016-09-30 22:22
pvp gear
2016-09-30 23:07
in legion pvp gear actually is pretty much normalized, 100ilvls will just give you a 10% buff on your stat template.
2016-09-30 22:17
10% more HP healing damage damage reduction haste crit and whatnot... When you add it up it might make a huge difference no ?
2016-09-30 22:19
10% power increase, not 10% on all stats, i phrased that wrong sorry. Any half dedicated player will have gear in the range of being 1% in order of each other. Im not saying wow pvp is great (i exclusively play pve), but saying gear is all that matters is wrong right now
2016-09-30 22:23
ah oki thanks for the clarification ! That sounds nice actually

fun fact, in arena tournaments (qualifications etc too) you get all the gear
2016-09-30 23:09
fun fact, arena tournament server is opened maybe for 2 months in the year ?

pvp in wow was and never will be perfect but it doesn't need to be perfect it just needs to be fun. and to be honest i was very sceptical of the new expansion but it surprised me, i'm having tons of fun and it's the best expansion since lich king. my favourite will always be tbc though. :)
2016-09-30 22:12
from what I heard/experiences myself. vanilla => take any warrior druid pown everything GG tbc => rogue+x with azziroth blade and farm like you farm mobs work => anything aside from RMP RLS was face roll and matches lasted 2 minutes xD edit:especially towards the end where everyone in glad range was there thanks to the GCD hack haha
2016-09-30 22:17
vanilla and tbc was all about skill wotlk was nice too but there was few faceroll classes like Death Knight then Cataclysm completly killed pvp for me and i stopped playing but from what i heard next expansions wasnt better for PvP dunno about Legion.
2016-09-30 22:21
I say that but actually the one exp I played (wotlk) was actually skilled. Or at least I played a comp in which, if you made just 1 mistake you lost instantly because of it. It was really fun, most of the time. Other comps had it really easy and some no-lifer PVE heroes had it extra easy and got their rating from stuff rather from skill. Heard that tbc before the azirroth glaives was really good multiple times, so you're probably right
2016-09-30 22:27
Remember when WoW was relevent? I do, 2004-2010
2016-09-30 22:28
relevant you what? still most played mmorpg and for sure it's the most complete one. everyone who played the game during vanilla-tbc-wotlk will always love the game
2016-09-30 22:39
thats true
2016-09-30 22:40
"the most complete one." Guess you've already forgot about WoD have you? the expansion that wasn't finised on release and still isn't to this day. Nope. A majority of the people who played from 2004-2010 have left the game for good.
2016-09-30 22:48
Who cares about wod? Wod wasn't good, mop and cata weren't good either compared to first two exps. But now is Legion time and it's kinda fun for me again, easily better than wod and mop.
2016-09-30 23:00
Well if you enjoy it, then I don't mind. What I'm trying to say is that blizzard has a really, REALLY bad track record when it comes it WoW. But if I were you I'd be pretty wary of any malicious shit they might try to do in the future.
2016-09-30 23:05
lol, no
