EU GCDTV Feedback and Ideas
Hello everyone Clutter from GCDTV here, I got got quite a few requests to make an EU Feedback forum post, so here it is! Give me your feedback! During the winter we hosted an NA Pro League - 5 biweekly tournaments all adding up to one big FINALS tournament. We had some amazing high end 3v3 gameplay and saw some of the best players go head to head. We are currently in the middle of our EU Pro League (Fri/Sat/Sun 6:30pm CET @ twitch.tv/GCDTV). GCDTV over this past year has made huge strides in production value (when the internet is working) as well as ruling. To make these improvements we rely heavily on the feedback and ideas from the community! If you have an ideas or thoughts how we conducted our events better in anyway, please reply here. I am happy to announce that in the near future we will be holding more NA tournaments! Dates are still to be determined. I'm posting here to get some feedback and ideas from the players and viewers. Please share any negative or positive feedback you might have about rulings, format, or the broadcast. Please keep it civil and on topic. Dmachine and I will try to reply to the thread as often as we can. Thank you and have a great day!
Dominate Mind Temporarily Disabled in PvP
We have recently become aware of an exploit involving the Priest’s Dominate Mind talent which has been causing disruption in rated PvP. We’re currently working to fix that exploit, but while those investigations take place, we’ve temporarily disabled Dominate Mind in instanced PvP. Once the issue has been corrected, we will re-enable it.
Crowd Control & Diminishing Returns
When you're affected by a crowd control effect in PvP, there's an 18-second window for diminishing returns on further effects from the same category. Additional CC effects used on you while diminishing returns are active are reduced in duration: first by 50%, and then by 75%. Each CC effect resets the 18-second window to its full duration, and if you are affected by three CC's of the same category inside that 18-second window, you will be immune to further effects from that category until the 18-second window has passed. The lists below have been separated out into their specific diminishing returns categories. Each ability shares diminishing returns with the other abilities it has been listed with, and no others, except where noted. Diminishing Returns Categories Disorient Incapacitate Root Silence Stun Knockback
Queuing skirmishes, only playing with Russians?
Over the past week I've done a lot of skirmishes. It seems that 95% of the time I'm being put in with Russian players, despite not being on a Russian server myself. Can anyone explain this? What is the justification for match making some EU servers with others that are by majority Russian, when other servers don't get matched with any Russians? I have absolutely no issue occasionally playing with or against Russians, and I appreciate that some of them can speak English really well, but many can't or don't want to, and the "Community" from my perspective suffers because I'm not matched with people I can communicate with.
Hey guys and gals :D
I killed affli warlock in 1v1 :)))
Healers Banned for 2v2
Healers shouldn't be in 2v2. Remove it for Legion. Thanks.
LF WORST LEGION PVP CLASS
Hello! My name is Haydan and im looking for the worst Dueling/2s/WPvP on 110 LvL. As an expierenced PvP player im looking for a challenge on the new expansion. as im playing Dueling/2s/wpvp only i would LOVE to know what you guys think is the WORST class for it. i would like to get rekt so bad that i will want to rip my eyes off and eat them. PREFERENCES: -a class that can be rekt so easily and hard like shrek did with this gnome fag in last Shrek video GO HAM GUYS I WANNA CRY!
I know what you're gonna say, "wait for 110 it'll fix everything!". The problem with Rogues isn't something fixed by scaling like with Warlock's retarded healing and tankiness, reaching 110 won't suddenly remove the billion CC spells and unpeelable mobility Rogues have. It feels like every class BUT Rogues has ended up with less CC and mobility.
Goodnight kiss from Blizzard
http://imgur.com/a/BoU7N This is some kind of sick joke ? After over 500 arenas full of pain blood and CC chains from RMDs I managed to get rating with lowest tier comp to this title and this is what happens after few days ? This ? Should I post ticket for bug or this is legit ? So far Legion shows for me only worst. Good job Blizzard.
I got global'd in arena from a ret paladin.
http://tinypic.com/r/20tl1nc/9 I know it is just a pre-patch and numbers are tuned around level 110, but IF there are some hotfixes happening before the launch, maybe those spells could be addressed as well. Peace
Best horde racial for Warrior
Best horde racial for warrior for legion? Strictly looking for arena 3s only.
Live is a mess - we're still paying
I'm tired of hearing about 'it's just the pre-patch stop complaining' I can't be the only one thinking that we're still paying for this game monthly. The game, specifically PvP is not okay in this state. It's a live game. This would not be okay on any other game, why do we put up with it on World of Warcraft. Some people are happy yes, but a lot of classes are completely unplayable. On another point I find it amusing this progression of excuses. We've been giving feedback on legion for months. Don't worry it's alpha Don't worry it's beta Don't worry it's pre-patch Don't worry it's Season 1 (INC) p.s give us our honor talents during pre-patch
Melee in PvP now
Wtf is even... How are you supposed to get melee off you now? 1000% uptime
New Layout is !@#
Don't like it, just wanted to share
Pre-patch !@#$ Posting
I think that most people are getting tierd of this spam of posts complaining about certain classes. It's pre-patch, literally no balance atm matters. Posting something about how a certain class is doing retarded damage is pointless. No one gives a single !@#$. It's balanced for lvl 110. If you want to complain about a mechanic that's fine but the numbers are pointless.
Alts screwing up the cutoffs and taking up titles.
Glad isnt even 0.5% anymore. Because every player at glad/r1 range got a billion alts, that is currently taking up all the titles aswell. It's pretty annoying to think. Like honestly how many players actually get R1? Like the first page is even flooded with alts. Blizzard should make it so one account should only take up one cutoffspot. To make it more fair and close to 0.5%.
What's up with warlocks?
Well you will hear it first, as it would matter anyway.... I can already see how this will be a topic that will pop up quite a bit in Legion and as you all can now see how classes turned out with the Pre Patch, you might as well already experienced it as the receiving side. It would have been much better to let the next Shadow Strike only Port if you have the buff "Death" from SoD that lets your next Shadow Strike crit. SoD itself has a Cost, a Condition and a CD. That would limit the infinite teleports.
Legion is boring for oldschool players
What game went throught each expansion and thease radical changes made the whole game very boring not just in pvp but in pve aswell the pruning have huge negative impact , much highter then its positive side and thats not cos imbalance but game lost everything what was keeping players in it. Example in wotlk game design were amazing. That how much efforts you spent into your character was well rewarded .Spending hours daily on masterng your class just to try diff rotations and priorities to maximise your pressure and master your class what was a neverending process and made the game very addictive People who played back then may remember on that even with one tier lower gear was able to do more pressure then a top geared player good example is rogues, their max energy was lower and energy regeneration was much slower aswell, and that to what to spend combo points has several decisions : evi, expose armor, rupture, kidney, slice and dice what has huge impact at how much combo points to use them and with what priority. using blind also ment punishing for less dmg . and this was with all other classes but with legion all of thease things gone. difference between two players who play same class is team sinenergy and few choices of cc/cd but in core class knowledge is absolutly nothing and thats what blizzard should understand that even if they gain some subs at new xpact they will leave cos game is very boring.
set bonus work again in bg?
I noticed today that my pve set bonuses and probably the pvp ones as well work again in battleground. As my hunter i had my instant aimed shot back again. Anyone else noticed it?
Whoever is responsible for the numbers
We all know this issue. I just report it http://imgur.com/a/y1NDa
So, before the prepatch I used gladius for arena frames and disabled the default ones. However, now Gladius isn't working and there is no options for arena frames anymore, but they're STILL hidden, so I have 0 frames in arenas. This is kinda pissing me off, can someone help me?
IoC needs an update
Ive just witnessed the scumbaggary of a russian team in Isle of conquest and i have concluded that there needs to be a way to destroy the keep without entering into it. My justification is that the people turtling inside the boss room are not interested in actual PvPing as they cannot win the BG unless the enemy team goes in if they just sit in their keep. It makes no sense that we would engage a full army inside their garrison when we have a whole host of siege vehicles at our disposal that could simply bring that garrison down on their heads if they refuse to come out and fight to defend it. Simply one of 2 solution can solve this issue: 1) make the main building destroyable with a large healthbar and automatically lose the game if it is destroyed in this fashion 2) make everyone inside the main building recieve full damage from siege vehicles as well as recieve less healing the longer they are sieged either or both of these solutions will fairly balance the battleground to prevent pure turtling inside the main building and just using it as a funnel, people will be forced to come out and defend against the siege or else lose.

............ability pruning in legion
We HATE ability pruning, hear that blizzard, we HATE it! I started playing in MOP i was gutted when i came into legion, no ability's left, why make a game easy? Why do people love Dark souls???? Because it hard, takes time and practice to master.........not rolling your face on the keyboard. who strives off easy games? What is a glad title if you didn't really "URN" it, i wish to one day earn glad title, but by no mean do i want an easy path to it, make the road as windy and tripy as possible, please blizz!Adding and replacing ability's is fine,,,,,,,but removing is not!!!!!!!!! Listen to the community for once!! im only getting so triggerd because i use to love this game!! XXXXX if Legion flops, that's it im just gonna play a private server THE END
Enjoy it while it lasts
A PVP world without Cyclone.
legion ruined everything
all class flavor is gone, any class has maybe 2 pvp counter abilities at most for PVP, and half of the skillful abilities + the macros that went with them have been removed. most boring crap i've ever played, but i'm subbed for the rest of the month so I may as well spend it trashing the game.
World of Castercraft
Current prepatch, the game is absolutely broken and favors casters an insane amount. I start watching a level 110 stream, I see firemages in arena spamming flamestrikes 24/7 and no one being able to do a damn thing about it except for UA locks who outheal their healers. Knowing how it went the last few expansions (pretty much ever since WotLK) you won't fix your nonsense so I guess this is yet again an expansion not worth PvP'ing in. Good job, Blizzard.
Marks of Honor and saving for legion S1 gear
I am very very surprised I can't seem to find a similar question and I would love to have an answer so here it is: We all noticed that honor and conquest were removed and replaced by Marks of Honor that you get from BG's, Arenas, etc. Hence, PVP gear will now be bought with them and it is already the case for the old WOD PVP gear. Now, my question is, since they are already available, would it be smart to save as much as possible of those Marks in order to purchase all the S1 Legion gear when hitting 110 ? Or, will blizzard trade them for gold (or anything else) once Legion is finally launched so everyone starts on an equal foot at level 110 ? Thanks you in advance for those who know about that!
PvP ladder for other brackets than max lvl?
Here is my thought: How about making ladders for twinks? Doesnt give titles, mounts, gear. Nothing, but rating. People levelling past the pvp ladder brackets level restriction (ex. lvl 10 - 19, 20 - 29, 30 - 39 etc.), would simply be removed from the bracket, and their rating would get be set to 0. It would make twinking more appealing for players in general. As I see it right now, twinking doesnt seem to have a purpose but, other than relaxing on a simple character with less abilities. I happen to enjoy playing a lvl 29 twink, but my main goal is my max lvl characters rating. i'd love to have some rating to fight for on my twink aswell. Anyways, I'm sure some of you will point out flaws in my idea ^^
http://www.wowhead.com/spell=221703/casting-circle Rly Blizzard? You give warlocks a spell that makes them unkickable with a pvp talent? I mean how is this going to be fun to play against..? Or do i understand the spell wrong, it says for 20 sec you are not kickable in that circle and it has a 15 sec cd. Ps: English is not my first language
With all the changes to class mechanics (regarding CC, utilities etc) what spec do u think will be least punishing comparatively to play with a latency around 150 ms. Strictly arenas 3v3 I know that latency has its toll but which one below would perform the maximum with the latency mentioned above : WW monk / Enhance (my preferred options) Surv Hunter / Warrior (not so interested :P) I have played all melee classes and like only melee, tried ranged and never enjoyed in tbh :( Thank you in advance, in taking your time out to help me decide, with your valuable experience.
Legion healing arena and rbg
Hi can someone shed some light for me on the following? Which healers will be wanted for RBG in legion? I have quit the game like 1.5 years ago, but back than the wanted healers were mostly pala, monk and priest for RBG. To some extend druids too, but rarely shams. Shams were just not suited for it. How does this look for legion? Regarding arena I would like to play some with my warrior buddy in 3v3 and to lesser extend 2v2. Anything known already about which healers will work well with warrior? Thanks in advance.
In the legion pre-patch notes under Arena it says The pennant attached to the back of characters now changes its appearance based on the player’s best rating in the Arena bracket. Does anyone know how the new pennants look?
blizz can you do a hotfix to wlocks till legion launch?
inside skirmish they are unkillable by two people , their shields and healing done is ridiculous atm. skirmish and bgs are only thing what we can do and cba with this cancer for one and half month . honestly the prepatch came out way too early aswell as everything is tuned for 110 game is absolutly not enjoyable
How the fck isnt this guy banned yet.... https://www.twitch.tv/grappling5
Boring at BGs (as a healer)
Any healers there having a boring pre-patch experience as me in BGs? I'm most of the time stun/poli/silence/etc..ed. I switched to a dps class in order to have some up time. Maybe I'm doing something wrong... I dunno. I accept suggestions because what I like is to heal in BGs.
This is gold.
Just met this warr in skirms on my shaman,he flamed me so hard that im complete !@#$,lulul check him out - http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/aegwynn/Randomwarry/simple
Can someone explain me how is it possible, that GM of WOW are so clueless? https://i.gyazo.com/f5e9b8c8c6723dcc63ffd01d838fba3d.png https://gyazo.com/398e45e2d6d29e4dbe8e042d9b3ea1f1
Thoughts on SV Hunters in PVP?
I'm enjoying the spec and I don't normally enjoy melee that much in WoW, but this is a lot of fun, but there are some issues I'm having with it. 1) Our self healing/defences are pretty awful. 2 minute CD for a 30% heal and 3 minutes for our only damage mitigation, which we can't even attack during? This was tolerable on ranged Hunters because their biggest defence was their ability to kite. Even plate classes have more defences than this. 2) Raptor's Strike is utterly useless. There's barely even time to slip it in since there's always going to be something more useful to spend that GCD on. Just rework it into some form of ranged filler to give us something to do while we kite, or just bake Lacerate into it so you feel like there's a point to using it, and make Serpent Sting a ranged DoT again via talent tree to rival Dragonsfire. Anything is more useful than this. 3) We're a relatively mobile melee, I never really find it difficult to stick to a ranged class, however saying that, what is difficult is being the squishiest melee in the game and having no escape. Once we dedicate ourselves to that sexy little Harpoon animation, we're in there until either they're dead or we are. Warriors have Charge to get in and Heroic Leap to get out. The way we're designed seems like they're wanting us to be a sort of hit & run spec, but it's kind of hard to play like that when you have 0 escapes, and the fact is we're simply not tanky enough to dive into a group fight like a Warrior or DK, we just get shredded in seconds. At the very LEAST make it so we can Harpoon to allies. 4) Camouflage should be baseline. I don't care if you remove the healing aspect from it to balance this out but it should outright be a baseline ability for SV Hunters and it's absolutely dumb how it's not considering the entire theme of the spec. There's also some other talents that baffle me, like Sticky Bomb, Spitting Cobra, Mortal Wounds and Dash. They are all horrifically bad and nobody in their right mind will ever take them. I'd like to hear what you guys think yourselves about our current state.
Hunters in Legion.
Hey. Wanned to ask you guys what do you think about BM hunters? Are they gonna be viable in Legion or anyone will switch to melee mongo surv spec? With trap being removed from range hunt I personally can't see them being viable in anything at all.
Hear ye, hear ye! The end is near!

Can they fix warlock dot duration????
corruption debuff lasts 2min and soul effigy lasts 10min...err are they serious?
Hey guys! Just wondering if anyone knows roughly when the title calculation for WoD S3 will be? Just curious to see if it'll be before legion or after legion launch. Thanks guys.
Legion 3s theorycraft World of Meleecleave
Spent some time looking at the Legion talents/redesigned stuff and figured out some crazy synergies Last time when I played in early WoD and got the hands on the PvP set the first time, I just saw a brokenly overpowered setbonus and it also ended up being completely OP in PvP http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/13123874358) Unholy DK + Assa Rogue Blood DK + Warr Calling it now already Blood DK can permanently make a target take 20% more damage. That's equal to perma avatar for your warrior teammate. Blood DK can also chain the entire enemy 3s team together, making all damage cleave between targets. Cleaving Bladestorm. Blood DK also gets asphyxiate for free and strangulate ontop. That means 10 seconds of non-DR'ing CC by just 1 player. Every minute. So if you are a healer, you are getting trained by warr+DK. With strang+silence+shockwave. While your teammates are getting cleaved for 20% of the damage all the time. And you take 20% more damage from both DK+Warr for the whole match. Unholy + Assa Rogue might be equally as stupid. Rogue gets Shiv which makes every single ability you press get a 3 second cooldown. Every time. Even instant casts with 0 cooldown. DK gets a permanent aura, while you are near the DK, your cooldowns are slowed by 30%. So you have almost 4 seconds of CD on every ability you got. Large cooldowns are now even larger cooldowns. Your PvP trinket is also affected by this because Blizzard decided to make PvP trinket a spell so you now got over 2mins and 30 secs on your trinket. Unholy gets a talent that everytime you take any healing, you take a lot of damage. Every single time. -> Resto druid hardcounter. Have fun with those HotS killing yourself. While rogue+DK are training you and that is happening, you are getting necrotic strike stacked on you. Enjoy Legion ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ For reference of talents: http://beta.wowdb.com/pvp-talent-calculator#Z http://beta.wowdb.com/pvp-talent-calculator#b http://beta.wowdb.com/pvp-talent-calculator#R
Legion the noob friendly game
Well after many years of playing world of warcraft I regret I subscribed resently because I am done, when there is no out playing anymore and no counter plays and everybody just have to be DPS turrets and the turret who deals more damage wins. This is really sad, because I loved this game until pre patch came, I have like 6 lvl 100's and I do not enjoy playing any of them, Dont tell me Wait till legion because there will no changes just take a look at the honor talent tree its all passives. Unless Blizz does some dramatic changes this game will be for 10 year olds button smashing contents, GG blizz. xoxo
Had Glorious Tyranny on multiple characters and Primal Victory on 1. Also enchanted some Heirlooms with Tyranny. All Enchants have been wiped and i'm unable to unlock it at the transmog vendor nor can i buy anymore? Explain please.

Zero stat customization in Arenas and BGS?
let me see if I got this right. I have 3 trinkets level 710. 1 crit, 1 versatility and 1 with less versatility with agility proc. No matter what combination I use, my stats remain the same. So basically, when I have a costly attack like Mutilate, which I would like to crit more often, I can't use a crit trinket to make it, so that it crits more often at the cost of, say versatility. What kind of a nonsense is this? I get, that the devs are trying to make PvP "balanced", but the result is that there is no point to specific pieces of gear. All it matters is the item level. And then if the stats are not right, all you can do is change your spec to something, that works better with the specific stats and their proportions. Meh...
Bear form healers against melee's
are you trying to troll melee's blizzard ? so melee have no chance to put a pressure on a !@#$ing healer swap to become atank in seconds ,im also curious if they're viable for raid tanking now .
(playing beta & live here) My main concern going forward in legion is just how boring and stale the PvP fights are. With 0 utility and the only CC coming in the form of stuns it's creating a pure damage fight with 0 variation as everyone has equal gear. I honestly can't tell if I'm playing vs a good player or not to be quite honest. I'm calling it now, PvP participation will be at an all time low if some utility/CC is not added soon. Even on the beta with full honor & artifact talents most moves are just more damaging/healing abilities. There have been some good changes as always but this quest for 'balance' and accessibility has created such boring play. I don't really know what to say....something is really missing. Most of my IRL friends and Bnet friends have already stated they don't play on playing legion seeing PvP as it is...... #sadface #rip9years of wow
