Re: Ranked Season 2 - Results & Insights

ELO/MMR doesn't really work with pugs. There's a reason why other games only apply it to organised groups or solo content. The whole MMR system needs to disappear imo. You're not pairing similar skill levels by using it as the number of people queuing doesn't allow for that. It just slows down match...

Re: Ranked Season 2 - Results & Insights

That's what a small sample will do for you, the law of large numbers isn't really there to flatten out trends and outliers will skew the results heavily. Still very interesting though, but I suspect a bunch of people are going to read too much into these stats.

Re: Patch Notes 05/09/2021

The time investment to get 1 set of gear from ranked is absurd, particularly with very few pops. These small adjustments to the rewards are really tone deaf by this point, I thought they were trying to prolong content, but the numbers are so far out that its destroying the content by putting people ...

Re: Patch Notes 05/09/2021

Hype! Good change for Ranked, but it is a little late. And honestly, it feels like a carrot on a stick. Is two insignias per week and the prospect of a Triumphant ring in 25 weeks really enough to get them to commit to the meatgrinder that is Ranked? I am not sure. I am in doubt myself as well. I r...

Re: AM survivability

Yes, solid advice. I just wouldnt go for m1 absorb. Its not bad, but I don´t think AM is suited for "tanking" enemies. So your usual response to pressure should be run away. What hinders you from run away? Snares. How can you get rid of snares (if cleanse not possible)? with m2 focused mi...

Re: AM survivability

Max FS and DD, slot armour talis (aim for 3k+ armour). Detaunt as required and you're all set. AM is just as tanky as Shaman (yes the narrative on here suggests otherwise, but they are misinformed AM buff campaigners). AM can go for the large M1 absorb, shaman can slot run away, but neither are as i...

Re: How to AM and Shaman

To people getting squished on a healer: armour talis, FS, DD, decent hp and the ability to detaunt is all you need. DD, willpower, FS mitigates a ton of ranged dps. FS and armour talis mitigate melee dps. It's so painful seeing healers slotting willpower over armour talis. To those saying Shaman has...

Re: Renown-obtain rates in oRvR

yeah that's a valid issue, devs need to balance the classes properly in small scale Until it's attempted, you can have have literally 0 idea whether it would work, nice meme or not. I think the evidence is on my side here, other games balance for small scale and it works really well, look at WoW ar...

Re: Renown-obtain rates in oRvR

yeah that's a valid issue, devs need to balance the classes properly in small scale, either that or join the crowd of dps AM/shamans to activate RoR's easy mode.

Re: Renown-obtain rates in oRvR

Still making 500-8k renown per kill here and loving it. I wish some of you would try the solo roaming playstyle, it's so much more engaging and rewards genuine competition. Half the fun is tryharding your setup to counter other classes. Great fun.
