“Battle Mender” for winning 50 games at rival. I will definetely be pushing on my rsham more for this title. This is a good reward and I hope it encourages people to play healer more in RSS.
Nurse hat when?
Blizz keeps bending over backwards adding a bunch of incentives for healers to queue instead of changing the one thing they keep asking for, a fair MMR system.
As long as a healer can get 0 rating for going 5:1 or lose rating for going 4:2, they will keep just queuing DPS to climb rating.
This is by far the biggest issue rn. This needs to be fixed ASAP.
I’m glad they’re trying. I really am. But I don’t think this is incentive enough. The title doesn’t sound that cool.
They should add some really good looking cosmetics/xmogs/mounts that you can only earn via healer queues. Maybe a unique weapon enchant mog? Something eye-catching that would be worth the effort.
In addition to the already stated MMR issues.
I don’t think this is a good incentive because most healers won’t be at rival.
Healing RSS is a pseudo-1v1 duel. Even if everyone heals at a r1 level, most of them will still be under 1800 CR because it’s all relative.
Is Blizzard’s goal to only incentivize elite healers to queue more? What about the rest of the ladder below 1800?
50 wins is a lot. That doesn’t include all the games you have to play to break 1800 CR and then hope you never drop below 1800 CR.
Healers will also just wait until the end of the season to get 50 wins. That’s the most ideal time to do it. (Or when their spec is broken OP before nerfs.)
mom look I’m a BATTLE MENDER
idk this title is really lame i wont be queueing for it
Titles are the worst cosmetic rewards these days. Unless you offer a unique mount or something like that no one is going to bother.
I can’t wait for healers to try to rating bash each other by comparing battle mender title dates
Yep this totally makes me want to heal solo shuffle now! O_O
tfw im just gonna hit rival in 2’s next season and immediately drop pvp when i get the set
This is really an idea someone had lmfao
single title probably accountwide when earned once
at relatively low rating
does absolutely nothing for participation long term
At least there’s a new category to make fun of Swole for. Really dude you’re rating bashing when it took 550 games to get battlemender??
Plastic carrot on a stick.
Would be funny to see an affliction lock running around with that title.
Blizzard’s finger is just drastically off the pulse of their playerbase.
RSS takes all the negative things about healing, dials them up, then they screwed with their MMR as a cherry on top. Lol
No one wants cheesy rewards, they just want the same stuff everyone else can get but it not to feel like torture getting there.
Its the best healer in the game at times
nurse hate + Queen’s Conservatory Ball Gloves + Apron.
We goin’ full Enema of the State transmog.
