    Watching the arena matches really makes me wish Blizzard has supported it as much as SC2, look how big that got even with well it's really just Koreans playing now (Hahaha, Jaedong King of 2nd place). Can really see arena is sidelined on the esports front even from Blizzard's perspective.

    If people would have ran real comps it would have been more interesting. Warrior/mage/x is boring to watch because they just train 1 target and lose if the other team is good. Godcomp is a joke and only won because the asians were shit.

    ele shamans single handedly ruined the finals for me. Doing 200k in globals on random basis is probably not fun for Talbadar either.
    PvE is a minigame // Rerolled from affly to spriest after 8 years, thx pandaland changes

    MiR globalled Novoz faster than Talb killed anyone whole tournament.

    The complaints last year about demo were justified, this year it was fine and representation was decent.

    Is there any possibility to see the final match? I missed because i feel asleep, and I don't have the virtual ticket. Was watching the stream on twitch.

    Wow pvp is not competitive bcuz some comps r better and some maps r better etc so it's pointless even having a tournament.

    If your gna have tournament it should be based on player/team skill alone

    It was based on player skill, Talb had the skill and team coordination to switch classes and win it. Zunniyaki tried it and failed miserably.

    Ok then if skill capped ran one of the Asian teams comps like hpala/warr/hunter they should win using that (ofc they don't play those classes so its hypothetical but yea)

    They know enough not to run that comp. They know enough that their previous comp choices, shadow-lock-druid wasnt going to work. Knowledge of the game and the ability to capitalize on that knowledge falls in the realm of skill no?

    It's like in SC2 games, they can build up their armies and base many different ways and knowing which one works well against what your opponent is doing is a huge part of being competitive.

    No im saying comp choice is part of the competition. Like in Star Craft, League, Dota, even FPS games where you might lose a sniper for an assault. You get to pick what you play and your choice and your ability to play well on that choice adds to the competition.

    Is LoL not competitive? The meta game is as much part of the competition as skill.

    no but the units you choose counter others, it's like rock papper scissors. That's what a meta game is, counter picking.

    I don't play lol so dno I'm just saying that map/comp choice shudnt make a difference (I'm not trying to say skill capped are bad or something and they only won cuz of comp They're clearly v good I'm just saying it shudnt matter) its like with cod the better gun is the better gun so everyone uses it meaning its equal maps also don't make a difference bcuz it's not better for one team

    I'd argue even the maps in CoD and other FPS arent equal. There are some maps that lend themselves more to sniper play or close quarters, or just run and gun. And what you end up choosing to use is changed by it.
