Casters dominating tournaments...
Again and again...
This tournament has been a complete joke.
Half the matches have been decided by DDOS.
Only interesting moment was Swifty. And that says a lot.
In terms of participants and teams involved, it was far more competitive than any Blizzcon (maybe not early ones, but definitely since Cata).
The only tournament that has been as good as this was the Prestige Gaming tournament where it was round robin, lasted for weeks and had 5 members per team and a picks and bans phase - that made it SUPER interesting and lots of comps were played that you don't normally see at a top level.
I missed the entire thing. There's no reason to go back and watch the taped versions. It's not live, so it doesn't matter to me anymore.
In fact, it doesn't even affect my life at all on who won. All us little people have to spend our time watching something that has no impact on our lives. Our role is to sit there and waste our time to be "entertained" while the people competing in the tournament are going for real money. We can chat all we want about our little opinions, but they don't have any impact on the tournament. We're just meant to play the bitch role and just sit there and take what's given to us. The more I think about, the more degrading it feels to actually feed any form of entertainment system by spending time using it.
Only one rogue was represented in this tournament and he folded, quite disappointing.
Warlords of Draenor ALPHA Content + Other Games!
I loooooved this tournament, I hope there will be more tournaments like this.
The Grand Final was really good, and I encourage all that love PvP to watch it.
As Ethidia said, I highly recommend anyone who enjoys PvP content to watch the first game of the Final (Cdew/Venruki/Snutz vs Talbadar/Chanimals/Sodah) - it was one of the best Arena games ever played in a tournament setting imo. Cdew played fantastically and Venruki and Snutz being able to stay offensive while everyone on their team was at sub 20% was insane.
Sometimes when you are all confident you get your ass completely handed by a rank 1 player and consider his skill from another planet. But then you get to see the first game in the finals yesterday, where the absolute best players get to play their absolute best for a lot of money. And while being totally blown away by the performance it totally depressed me as well. Logged out of WoW for the night and went to play hearthstone. Sigh ...
You can tune a piano, but you can't tuna fish.
Anyways if they know that they will be playing that class from the start, then they can not do bad. It is not like we are picking up a mage and forcing him to play a rogue.
