PvP Tuning - January 11, 2019

highest rated fotm in 2s and 3s*

if the trait was ENTIRELY the sole problem, why not just use it with a destro lock then, since they inherently hit higher than starsurge with stacked grimsup? thats a big thonk

the outrageous statement is saying that a spec with half the representation of your own is op rofl - at this point, I just want to see all the people complaining hit top 100, hell, even top 200 - if its as op as people cry it to be, then surely that would be an easy accomplishment.

End of season 1 ruined. After how many years? How long have they have been doing this… yet still cant figure it out.


#65

Pretty sure dipi has been 2700+ for a few years now…


#66

FOTM tho right??

People don’t realize arenamate is only useful after long periods of 0 or minimal change. Not a few weeks after major arena rattling changes.


#68

alright, I’ll be back then when either…

  1. someone who is crying about destro manages to get top 200 with it
    or
  2. a few months pass and we’ll see if destro manages to break 4% rep, like elemental and tab targetkin have.

Locks were inviable for 95% of this xpac so of course its gonna take a moment for representation to go up, but that doesn’t mean destro isn’t a strong spec now. Why don’t you go get 2k for the first time instead of sh*t posting forums? lol


#70

where on earth did I say they werent strong? they are strong - I laugh because you say OP rofl.

if destro is so OP, why dont you get top 200 with one instead of playing specs that can be utilized with 1 hand?


(Orphanchild) #71

Are you implying destro has buttons lmao


#72

well, I consider conflagrate, immolate, incinerate, and chaosbolt (the damaging abilities) more buttons than just 1 button win lasso on less than a min CD compared to a 3 min gimmick, yes


(Orphanchild) #73

If you’re losing to lasso no one can help you


#74

if you’re losing to 3 min gimmick CD that can easily be LOS’d or infernal killed in 5 globals due to its health, no one can help you


(Orphanchild) #75

This is who blizzard makes the game for now


#76

thats a big YIKES considering just a few expacs ago elemental was flameshocking people and instant-casting up to glad, and during the same time that destro locks could double havoc coil > chaosbolt two people for 250k+ (half their health)

and that expansion (mop) was regarded as one of the better expacs for pvp, had higher participation in pvp, etc…


(Shamxd) #79

I dont generally like getting involved in “discussions” like these but… You sure are confident in your opinions for someone who’s best PvP achievement is 1550 in 2s.


#80

im pretty confident in it because as it stands, statistics and the recent balancing changes back it up :slight_smile:


#81

Funny, cause they do tweak PvE just like they did on Jan 7 hotfixes as well as prior dates.

You could just skim each days hotfixes here: https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/news/22824893/hotfixes-january-7-2019

I know, that doesn’t fit the narrative though.


(Dose) #82

It’s an rng proc from an azerite trait as well that lets you just randomly global someone, don’t overexxagerate it, the nerf was needed.


(Therez) #83

Could ya’ll look at prot Paladins in Arena. Huge damage/huge healing/huge mitigation/error fixing

Other nerfs are great.

Ele and Enhance wait 4 months for dial turning and two new talents that no one takes, but PvP adjustments just keep coming. You can say I’m biased but I also don’t care.
