Nov 19th 2009 2:02PM Mmk rex, you win.
The biggest boss wins-- Loken defeats all. I mean he's a titan. No one can defeat them! Contest over.
That was fun.
Nov 19th 2009 1:58PM First of all Rexton, Eregos was brought back as a wildcard and just defeated Keristrasza...Go to the top of the page and click on Two Bosses Enter if you don't believe me.
so no-- you're wrong.
Second Rexton, explain to me how exactly I should takeout game mechanics. What does that even mean? I don't even think you yourself know what that means bahaha. Because if we takeout 'game mechanics' and go for a 'realistic fight' then hmm...
But just for giggles I'll appease you and takeout game mechanics...
Well anything that can't fly is out. Because Eregos would just sit in the air and dominate them with ranged attacks while they sit on the ground and cry.
And I guess through your logic anything that is bigger than anything else wins. I mean let's just disregard the bosses abilities altogether since, well, Loken didn't even use his to defeat Gan. He just "stomped on a tiny rhino". So Eregos wins again!
None of your posts have made remotely any sense or defended themselves whatsoever. "Takeout game mechanics and youll have a more realistic fight" doesn't make any logical conclusion either way.
But even outside of that.. you still haven't answered me. In what way does your logic not just say:
the biggest boss wins
Nov 19th 2009 1:11PM No what he's saying is that through your logic, we should just hand the victory to the biggest boss-- i mean come on, he'll just stomp on all the other smaller bosses.
Yep, that sounds like an awesome competition. Ley-Guardian Eregos-- well done!
See in WoW, tiny little characters like gnomes, dwarfs, and goblins can tank great big monsters like onyxia, ragnaros, deathwing, etc. Size really doesn't matter.
You.. you have played WoW right?
Nov 19th 2009 1:04PM You guys clearly don't play the same game i do.
I play a game where a tiny gnome warrior can tank RAGNAROS and take hit after hit after hit.
But size matters in WoW, you're right.
Nov 19th 2009 12:44PM Lmao, are you serious!
Come on people use some fraction of sense for once! WoW in it of itself doesn't follow logical basis behind physics and mechanics!
Can a gnome tank really stand up to Gruul? Of course not, but in WoW anything is possible.
How does a gnome warrior do anywhere near as much damage as a huge tauren? That doesn't make any sense! But recall: it's WoW.
And again, this contest between bosses isn't about who's bigger or who's harder to defeat for players-- it's about which boss' abilities overpower/counter another boss'! I mean the author has said so himself!
So please stop with these mind boggling comments like, "Oh noez, Loken can't get impaled heiz teh best and haz Yogg Saron wiph him." --No. If you really believed that, then you'd also presume that no matter of tiny azerothians could go into Ulduar and defeat General Vezax (who is probably 25 times larger than any WoW character) or Yogg Saron.
Nov 19th 2009 12:37PM Yeah, what needs to happen (and would be really easy to do in terms of HTML code) is that "downgraded" comments need to be colored differently.
As in, comments from one point of view or 'popular' comments be colored blue
And comments from another point of view or 'unpopular' comments be colored green or red, etc.
Nov 19th 2009 12:14PM Bahaha, I'm certain this will get downgraded and no one will see it-- but I'm going to write it anyways.
Im laughing at all the comments like, "Seeing as Loken is a giant motorbike-mofo made out of metal, how exactly are tiny impales going to kill him? There are no organs to damage.."
Um... I'm not sure if you understand Two Bosses Enter One Boss Leaves, but all bosses abilities work on each other. It is fair ground for both bosses. Saying that you can't impale a 'metal' target isn't a reasonable conclusion at all.
This victory is both maddening and illegitimate. To the point where, the author needs to step in and recognize that the majority is wrong, giving no reasonable explanation behind why Loken would emerge vicious.
I used to love this article for it's imagination and colorfulness, and even if my vote differed-- at least someone offered a reasonable explanation why. For now, as long as Loken stands a victor here- I've lost my respect for the article and probably won't follow it. Anub will probably dominate anyways...
...Oh wait nvm, nothing can do damage to something metal >.
Nov 10th 2009 3:26PM Thanks WoW.com for covering the mlg tournament this past weekend! err.. wait...
Why aren't mlg tournaments covered by WoW.com? I don't recall any arena tournaments ever covered by this site.
Nov 7th 2009 11:06AM This is actually a pretty well written article. Great work zach!
Nov 6th 2009 7:34PM Using Nourish to heal a teammate is one thing-- but the situation that was described was keeping yourself alive as a resto druid:
"You'll run into a lot of situations where you might die if you don't CC an attacker, but you'll also die if you stop spamming Nourish to counteract the incoming damage." ... "This gets annoying fast. I finally lost it after dying several times on defense to attackers to whom I basically couldn't do anything."
Which is not, by general means, considered a good idea. A druid is better off popping into bear form and using Enraged Regeneration. Or, following the idea to CC an attacker- cyclone to nourish seems reasonable as well. Still-- casting is risky (unless a ret paladin is on you lol, then spam nourish all you want)
