We fought a group of Horde for a good hour today after the Tol Barad battle. A paladin named Racknar, who had something like 30 ilevels on me, would practically one-shot me so any time I saw him headed in my direction I had to run like hell! Getting hit by 1 kill for literally over 2 million damage is crazy. I wanted to log into their server and say GG but it rankles a bit when someone outgears you so much and they can’t but help hit you for a fuckton of damage naturally.
The mage isn’t the best for it but it’s all I got on Sargeras.
I see this paladin, and a DK off in the distance, just before I’m about to port out in Lakeshire.
We tussle on the roof a bit, but I had to float down to avoid dying on top of something.
A paladin and rogue joined in and we won , so close for me!
Then we killed him on rez for funsies. Good times.
Back during MoP, gear out in the world got extremely unbalanced. The best pvp gear level was 550, but raiders could get to 580ish. That meant they could destroy pvpers very quickly, we’re talking 3 globals. I personally recall dying to a raid tier shadow priest on my resto druid in the span of a Silence, or getting destroyed with a penance or two by a disc priest on my 550 hunter.
Timeless Isle was a real problem on pvp servers in particular, because raiders were gods and could kill pvpers like it was nothing. I didn’t ever want to see THAT again.
But, here we are. I’m around 935 ilevel on my mage and priest, but if I run into say, a warlock who is 960ish, they can melt me and NOTHING I can do will save me, I can’t even outheal the damage. On top of that, you can have someone hit you even at the same item level or close, and take you to 20% health before you know it. It’s pretty bad.
Though I will say out in Tol Barad, with the exception of that raiding warlock, I’ve still been doing ok.
But, it makes me want to raid just to keep up, it’s frustrating. It’s totally not fair for me to do that, or have a raider do that either but here we are, again.
I’ve been having fun in Tol Barad lately, although often times it’s very heavily leaning towards Alliance, every once in a while we get a good battle with Horde.
But, I’ve been feeling rather isolated in the game lately. I haven’t had a raid team in a long while, and Time Lords has been dead for months. I quit SPM and I didn’t think too hard about it until I was listening to someones stream. Lots of grouping for various activities; something I haven’t had in months.
I looked at my friends list and, so many people who just never message me or ask to do anything, ever. It got e-depressing looking at that so I deleted most of my friends list. Anyone I hadn’t talked to or played with in months was removed. I don’t know how it makes any kind of sense but it feels better to not look at 20 people who don’t ever contact me.
I did a few Tol Barad battles today and, I ran into a special kind of stupid that only seems to manifest itself onto someone who plays a hunter. In this case, Solo-Garona.
He’s typing in really bad English about ignoring the spires which is kind of a valid point if you are struggling with bases, but we had 3. You won’t want people deserting bases but you can spare 2 people. He was literally saying they aren’t important at all. Like, screaming to ignore them. At one point he calls inc on ICG and I run there only to find him standing alone, with no horde around, and then he claims he can’t do something because “i’m bsy fighting” when I’m observing him in person, not doing a damn thing.
So naturally I start talking back when he says “listen to what im saying i knwo what im takin about”. I tell him he’s making terrible calls and to be quiet. I was then removed from the group.
I reply “lol that’s fine, kick your healer, idc, you’re still a moron”.
He literally replied with “u ar e teh weakest link good bye!”
I laughed out loud and countered with “oh wow, 1999 just came by and said hi!”
A few minutes later after people told me to cool down which I most certainly would not, he tried to reinvite me to group, twice, which I declined, TWICE.
That battle was pretty fun other than that, with quite a few horde showing up.
However it got even funnier after that when I ran to the camp to wait out the next battle, and saw Solo sitting there. Completely unprovoked he laugh emoted at me, and called me a ‘horde spy’. I replied “you’re really something” and he launched into rapid fire insults that included how I don’t know how to pvp and now ‘everyone’ knows it, I’m an idiot and a horde spy, I have a big mouth (true) and I should use it to suck his dick. Unfortunately I didn’t get a full screenshot because after the dick comment, I replied “if you had one I might” I reported him and his text all disappeared.
I don’t mind being insulted but I won’t put up with threats or stuff like that. Apparently Solo is massively insecure to have to double down the insults well after the battle was over.
