Sep 12th 2011 6:02PM This is a very sexy move by blizzard, hopefully people will take the time to articulate themselves clearly and properly. I have full confidence in blizzard to sift through the trolls and to take onboard the feedback that deserves to be listened to :)
Jun 15th 2011 9:37AM Oh god that would be so sweet, for a day9 of wow PvP to emerge ^^
I doubt that will ever happen, and as C. Chistian mentioned, all the top teams used virtually the same tactics and played the same way. I think there is a lack of places to see pro teams playing the pro way, liken it to starcraft again, there is countless pro games to observe, and it is obvious the 'ideal' way to play.
This makes it fairly hard to quickly learn arena strats, and makes learning through trial and error and suprise tactics very very common. Analytical WoW arena would be very cool ^^

I also said that this was an excellent write up of some amazingly well explained ideas :)
May 4th 2011 3:17PM C. Christian,
Here is a quick question:
You say that you are at your best when you are being focused in arena, and you barely let your damage slip.
I play a frost mage, and have only enjoyed success up to around 2k arena rating, and one of the areas I feel weak on, is sustaining damage when being focused. I consider myself to be very strong positionally, and mechanically.
Does the ability to sustain damage and remain strong while being focused yourself come from a great knowledge of your oppenents abilities? when you can and cannot get away with that extra cast? or exceptional communication with teammates, knowing when they are going to peel, allowing you to squeeze in an extra nuke.
Regards, a weekly reader :)
Dec 27th 2010 7:36PM Theres a great place I discovered yesterday, called stonetalon pass. It's the little kind of plateau at the top left of mulgore. It is full of critters :) and me and a two other guildies grouped up and were running circuits of the place, getting about 1000 kills in about 5mins :)
Also, there is something wierd going on there, the critters will sometimes morph into bigger versions of themselves wielding weaponry :P if you've not seen it you really should pay it a visit
Dec 27th 2010 9:04AM I choose what race to play based on two things mainly :)
1. can it be a mage
2. is it on the same faction as people i want to play with
Dec 24th 2010 7:12PM I don't entirely understand the view that pvp gear in heroics and raids is bad, granted, the stats will go to resi instead of something more useful such as int; but still.
I myself am a massive fan of pvp, and also a fan of the pve content.
I have looked at what gear you can buy from the badge vendors, and what drops, and am using this pvp gear to 'fluff' my item level indeed, but also as masive upgrades, e.g the 259 weapons over the old 318 staff, and, thats a staff that can go to a guildie and help the raidgroup more :)
