Episode 40 - Talking with Maldiva

 

Upcoming WoW PVP Events

 

WOW PVP NEWS

  • A Dev Q&A happened on Nov 16th. From that we got the following news:
    • They’re looking at h-talents and Prestige.  They’re not sure what they will do, but know they don’t want to add another 30 prestige levels.  Also looking at honour talents and the feeling of barrier to entry on alts or delayed levelling)
    • Legendaries
      • will be reduced to previous.  “Going back” per say.  This is good for world pvp
    • PVP Server changes
      • Their intent is not to “kill world pvp” as some are expecting; moreso revitalize.  They are creating a proper world pvp space for people who want to elect regardless of selected servers.  
      • Opens other options like - delay on mount post pvp battle (just an idea)
      • Intent is to open “pvp realm” to all (don’t need to server transfer) and will allow for a “global” balancing [aka reduce server faction imbalance]
    • RP realm WPVP
      • Recognize RP realm communities and don’t want to disrupt.
      • Expect to flag and still be with others from your realm.  
        • Not sure if this means all or just those who also flagged
    • Raiding capitals
      • No new events added.  Would love to see the “enemy at the gates” of old.
  • World PVP changes with artifacts - https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/news/21025532/hotfixes-november-14
  • Season 6 starts today
  • Hotfixes/PVP Tuning - https://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/20759567061#post

Listener Emails

From Alisaunder

People always talk about 3 day Alterac Valley, but no one ever explains why it was that way?

So, why was it?  What changed?

I've seen the quest givers but never understood what they were intended to do, or understood why players decided PvEing Alterac Valley against the Generals was better than PvPing each other.

    • Official Blizz description - “In a new Battleground, Seething Shore, players of the Horde and Alliance will descend upon Silithus to battle over the Azerite bubbling to the surface. This Battleground will offer dynamic control point gameplay similar to Arathi Basin, but with new control points appearing periodically as resources are depleted. This new Battleground will require coordination as you and your team work to overcome the opposing faction. Since this Battleground actually serves to tell part of the story that leads to the events of Battle for Azeroth, we also plan to offer a preview of the Seething Shore during patch 7.3.5 as we continue to build upon the conflict between the Horde and the Alliance for the coming expansion.

TankThatReb (Darkmoon Herald Podcast) 

Molten floor

  • Lava covers random parts of the floor that ticks for 20% of health
  • Arena has a ramp/bridge that players can get knocked off of

 

Alisaunder

 

I agree!  I would like to see more storyline in my PvP options, like the continuation of the arrival at Stormheim, with two gun ships sailing through the clouds with Genn or some other high ranking Alliance and Horde leader giving us a speech while we wait to start and test out the cannons a bit.

The clouds part! Grapples get thrown! Cannons roar! People are swinging, grappling or jump packing across to the enemy ships, defending their own ships to a last man standing finish.

Or NPC rezzers in the bowels of the ship revive the dead and it's on to kill Genn if you can.

Winners (or survivors) can receive a cut scene receiving a medal and some kind of achievement. Maybe an honorary title or some other RP perk like become an honorary member of the Gilnean forces.

 

Zullell

I've got a suggestion for a PVP battleground that would be Legion themed. I don't think Blizz has made enough use of those cool flying Legion disks on the Broken Shore yet. I think it would be really cool to have a sort of "capture the node via flying" sort of battleground. You could have the Sentinax as the main mid point, and maybe two other Legion ships as secondary points kind of like in Eye of the Storm. But in order to get to them, you need the flying disks, and you could gain a special ability and have combat on the disks. Plus, wouldn't it be cool to get an achievement for knocking another playing off said disk :D.

 You would also have basic combat and buffs on the "ground" of the island as well, but the main thing would be surviving flying to the ship and successfully capturing it for your side.

 

"Suchghost / Soniclol" 

The idea is there and hopefully from the picture you can see the map layout.

Again, the layout is also very simple and not fleshed out at all. Just enough time to make the basic layout at its core.

The map itself is 100% fair on either team because it is completely symmetrical.  There is a bottom floor and ramps that leads to an upper floor. Very similar to Blades Edge Arena but less complicated.  Blades edge is a cool map because of the dynamics that are involved with the different floor levels. However that map is kind of complicated in nature as it has 6 ramps leading to the upper level and a bunch of line of site location down below.  My new design render has only 2 ramps up and a couple line of site locations down below. Which would be great in my opinion.

 The theme for the map can be literally anything but I think a cool dark rocky texture with bright green lava and fire would fit a demon/legion theme. Call this map "Demon's Stand" or something cheesy like that. Would be located somewhere in the new demon hunter zone.  Can be added to the normal PvP arena queue.

 

 

ACELANNA 

 Arena design: Open concept with areas that have LOS like. Inside the arena there are random pop up boost icons.

Red boost will stun you as well and make you immune to damage. This allows the other person to heal and move while possibly gaining an advantage.

Yellow boost will slow you down while increasing your damage output.

Green boost will increase your speed while increasing the damage you take from other players.

You take the negative with the positive or you can maneuver your opponents to gain the boost.

Black rook hold, Nagrand, Shadopan arena and the big open desert arena platforms would be good for this boost system.

 

Gerissar

Lore

  • This arena is set in Naga lore.  It is on the shore of zone (to be determined), in old elf ruins.  The top of the walls will be filled with Naga watching their prisoners fight to their deaths, with Lady Vash occasionally watching (she will do taunts like the Ogre King in Nagrand Arena).  The dead are used to feed the Kraken.

Topology

  • This arena will be a half circle facing the sea.  Teams start in cells on either side of the arena.  There is a rock outcropping in the sand on one side, and a fallen pillar on the other (gives LOS points).  The arena does extend partially into the sea, but the way is blocked by a giant net.  Players can use the water to avoid AOE ground effects, but the run speed is slowed.  Also, should Blizz enable this, the water splashes will reveal the location of a stealthed/invisible player (not fully, but you can see where their feet are)

Extras

  • If players stay after the match ends, Kraken tentacles will pull the bodies of the dead out to sea.

Picture

 


Andallyn

My arena is set in Suramar City. Both teams have a long bridge they will be battling on amidst a legion assault on the city. The bridge is placed at height, adorned with ancient mana and mystical foliage, and is the access point to the inner sanctum of Suramar City a crucial edge for the legion and in that same vein an almost fatal blow to Suramar. A unique tactic will be available to the contestants consisting of tightly packed groups or “surimarian” forces and legion forces that will move. Essentially these function as moving pillars for LoS which requires more than a rinse and repeat tactic and mixes a little strategy and RNG into the mix. Additionally it should give the feel that you are not the only ones doing battle and that you really are fighting alongside the armies as legion forces will take out the forces of suramar and vice-versa as time goes on.


Windstead

My first arena is totally a troll with the long hallway and portals on each side so that as a frost mage i can kite you forever but that is not a very fair arena for a lot of reason so my realistic arena would be based in the great dark beyond think star auger fight in night hold the first stage outer space the map will last five mins and have a ton of line of sight and places to hide from your opponents after that there will be an announcement and the zone will planer shift meteors will smash the outer edge of the platform which you can fall off of to your death now you will be in a fel style zone there will be far less places to hide but still some that can be used if the match last 10 min then once again an announcement will be made and a giant demon will smash his fist into the center of the arena there is now no longer any place to hide it is a open area no pillars no los and the arena in the twisting nether think eye of the storm style now has walls there is no escape and the match should finish quickly but if the match continues to the 15 min mark an old god will appear and kill everyone and it's a draw.

Episode 24 - PVE to PVPness

 

Upcoming WoW PVP Events

http://wow.starladder.tv/en

WOW PVP NEWS

http://wiki.teamliquid.net/worldofwarcraft/Main_Page

 

Subject of Analysis

Today we will discuss, moving from pve to pvp!

World of Warcraft is primarily a PvE game.  When launched, battlegrounds and arenas did not exist.  Players created PvP in the open world (the famous South Shore / Tauren Mill battles).  Later, Blizzard added BGs and Arenas.

So, how does one move from doing PvE to PvP?  Well, we are going to talk with Thyst to see how she did this.

Strategies

  • Random BGs
  • Skirmishes
  • Make friends
  • Find a PVP guild
  • Watch youtube channels for people who play the same class
  • Watch Twitch channels
  • Don’t watch tournaments - top ranked play is not the same
  • Cynwise - https://cynwise.wordpress.com/
  • Pay-wall sites (skill-capped) - they do have some free content sometimes

GCDTV EU Spring Tournament #2 - https://battlefy.com/gcdtv/gcdtv-europe-spring-final/58c1decd66b0063e03125ddb/info?infoTab=details



WOW PVP NEWS

The GCDTV NA tournament 10-12 Mar was very exciting with quite the variety of comps.  It ended with team Wizks Return winning over team Northern Panda 4 games to 1.  Congratulations to Chanimals, Wizk, Asbur, and Absterge!  Through Matcherio.com, the community raised a total prize pool of $2068 USD, with 1st place getting $1240 of that!

 

Holinka talked some stuff.  https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/news/20564532/watch-the-q-a-vod-with-brian-holinka-here

http://www.wowhead.com/news=261064/liveblog-of-the-legion-pvp-q-a-with-brian-holinka

Most notably: no chance of pvp template/tuning info on the wow site, 1v1/solo queues may be coming (but it’s a difficult problem), pvp obliterum tokens, stacking boomkins and Spriests in RBGs is a problem, and Glad mounts are not going to become account-wide.

Subject of Analysis

Today we will discuss, Shadow Priests.

OverviewLike many classes in this game, the Priest was part of the original ensemble of classes.  And Shadow has been doing PVP ever since it was able.  It’s tool kit has been strong and meshed well with other classes (shadow play made famous by Talbadar).  Shadow priests, like many classes, received a complete overhaul in Legion to include insanity in their gameplay.
