Get ready for a good bit a text. I'll break it up to make it easy on the eyes
I have recently started to PvP this season with a close friend of mine and my brother.
Our main comp we are running is UH DK, Resto Shammy, Arms War.
The friend is the shaman, brother is warrior.
We have a steady 3's that we run, and we just can't seem to get past 1600 to save our lives and it's really embarrasing with my past of raiding(World First boss attempts, 40+ hour raid week, etc etc.) that we can't surpass this point.
I really thought I was lacking somehow but the other day me and my brother, me playing HPally just sat down for the first time and did 2s. We ended up going over 34-7 which was unreal and we capped a bit over 1800 if I remember correctly.
Since then I have tried countless different comps with my friend and none of them make it past 1500. We have gotten hot streak getting to 1300 before, only to lose 5 times in a row and have my friend ragequit. HPally/Mage, RSham/DK, HPally/SPriest,RSham/BMHunter, etc...
Here is the gimmick. He watches twitch streams of Reckful, Sodah, Cdew, etc etc. He thinks he knows it all! He thinks he is the head man and is always correcting me and my brother, when we are usually the right ones. We might go like 5-0 all above 1500 and then we will lose once to a stupid comp(resto shammy, Blood DK.. wut?) and he just rages and always complains about us.
I really want to have a good jump next season early, and I think it might be difficult with my friend. What should I do? I mostly do arenas but have never really explored RBGs. As a DK, I really should jump on that too probably xD!
TL;DR: Are there other people that don't even have a 1550 achieve but act like they are Rank 1?
