Most of the time if its a one-on-one fight and i lose i don't complain, i just acknowledge the other person as the better playerI only get mad when 4 people have to gang up on me, but then i can get a chance to flex my epeen if i can beat them, even if they are lower leveled^^^ Is an "OP" retadin
I think as long as you know your class well, and what to use and when to use it, you can kill any other class in pvp. I survive fine in pvp/arena as a holy priest, even in 1v1s.
Balance between classes in WoW is a moving target. Every change the developers make will naturally result in consequences for other classes.The classes in WoW are design with scissor-paper-stone principle, and there will always be a class that is impossible to deal with for you, and there will be classes that are free wins. The game is designed this way by intention, and I am sure the main idea behind on class beating an other by concept is to make players roll more than one character.You play the class that interests you the most, then you discover which opponents will beat you down on every occasion, and start to play this class... only untl you find out which class is the next natural enemy.Death knights have their opponents, too. They are not unbeatable or overpowered. Personally I think Death Knights are very wel designed. The only issue is that Death Knights are boring to play. I leveled one, then deleted it to return to my tankadin for greener pastures.
I registered just to comment on this entry. :)Just today I saw a dwarf hunter complaining incessantly about all the other classes. According to him, rogues can win for free because of stealth, druids can cheetah and run away, and Paladins are cheap if they use Lay on Hands in a fight. From what I saw of his dueling, he had absolutely no problems using his traps, Feign Death ability, and his pet.There is a perfect example of the whining player complaining about anything that makes him not win.A far better approach is to say, "OK, Paladins are going to use LoH, I'd better not blow all my abilities and resources before he uses LoH." Or, "OK, rogues can use stealth, how do I counter that?"-To the other thread about the hunter Snake Trap exploit, it was nasty. It turned on your PVP flag. I'll explain. There I was, a level 17 Druid in the Crossroads, and along came a high level Alliance Hunter who started owning everything in sight."I'll be OK," I thought, "I don't have my PVP flag on - hey wait, what? Snakes? ...huh? The hunter's attacking me? My PVP flag's on? I didn't turn it on!"Yes, indeed, with absolutely no input from me at all, the hunter had been able to turn my PVP flag on. Then I died because the Alliance scumbag outleveled me by at least forty levels.
I agree completely. People who lose poorly have what seems to be a reflexive need to say, "Yeah, you won because you cheated," or, "You won because you're using a cheap move." This was especially true back in the days of Street Fighter, where the only characters I would use were Chun Li, Blanka, and E. Honda. Yeah, I won a lot of fights with them, but in the end, the other player would realize that that's all I could do (keeping them locked in a corner, while I kicked/zapped/punched them repeatedly), and would eventually beat me.Excellent post, and very true.
I see something wrong here.. If both you and your opponent knows your class equally good, have equal gear, and fight on equal terms. It's still the guy with the strongest class that wins. or anticlass. From my own perception: (I play an aff warlock mainly)Warlock > Shaman.Warlock > WarriorWarlock > DruidWarlock > PriestWarlock > PaladinWarlock < DeathknightWarlock < RogueWarlock < HunterWarlock < MageSo.. almost 50/50 win rate, but it still feels like I'm being underpowered because the others often just facerolls me, so I often catch myself complain about it though it's not as bad as it really is.
too true...lol, my shaman friend just pwns retadins though, pretty funny to see lol. im a rogue and my friend just says "they suck, all you have to do is purge spam, earthbinding totem and tremor totem."
I think it's absolutely lovely when if I can't win in 1vs1, I can still manage to lure that person, who's trying to get a kill from me, into a group of my comrades, or even make my escape completely.Doesn't work all the times, but when it does, you can be damn sure that the same player will try to look you out in that bg, and tries to get his revenge, wich in return, clouds his judgement, and makes him run into even more traps.Some classes may be more powerful, so I try to counter them by letting them make mistakes, often STUPID mistakes.What my class lacks in power vs other classes in pvp, I try to make up for with tactics, wich seems to work.Wow is still in a way applying the rules WC3 had. If the opponent you are facing is having greater numbers/powers/abilities, you must use your wits to make the best of a situation.Of course, every now and then, I'll also complain about pvp and class balance. To me it comes with the game, and it feels so much better when you manage to kill those with that specific "imba" class, even on your own.
I used to play my rogue like a fury warrior; I used to die a lot, while only getting off a few Sinister Strikes. Then, I learned about stealth and stun-lock, and lo, the gates to The Land of Pwnage opened before me, and all the little warlocks trembled. I love killing warlocks on my rogue - it is one of the greatest experiences in PvP for me.
