I certainly care about pvp, and I get frustrated with people as much as the next person, but like I said, the abusive nature of it is a problem. Competition does not need to produce a hostile, cruel environment. I run into it a lot this season in particular, because warriors are terribly weak right now, when we lose matches, even if we play well, we are often trolled and dumped on by people who are taking advantage of obvious composition imbalances. I deal with so much trash talking, simply because the game balance is in a terrible spot right now, and someone scored a kill on the gladiator. But when you actually look at the ladders, warriors sitting on high end teams are few and far between right now, and it's no coincidence.

People assume that winning a match, or a duel, or whatever means that you are good and they are bad. Sometimes, that's the case, sure, but I remember when I couldn't touch my toes. I try to be polite and helpful, and that's the sort of environment people should be competing in, not the one we have now, diluted with people who believe that success has nothing to do with imbalances.

Also, simply because someone has farmed their pvp set, doesn't mean they are regular pvp players. Likewise, my friends and I have our full pvp sets, and also run raids regularly. Most people enjoy both facets of the game.

yeah I do too. And not going to lie, there are hostile QQ'ers both pve and pvp, it all depends on who you usually play with, be it your guild, trade chat, friends, etc.

I noticed your absence on the arena and warrior forums Squid, glad to see you haven't quit. I think you're the only glad warrior on this server... now if you'd just go horde side...

I was horde for a long time, and I have stopped commenting in the forums because it's not making a difference. A handful of people have made very fair, intelligent suggestions on how to properly balance warriors, and help bring them into the level of class synergy that other competitive classes have been brought to. We are dinosaurs, using old, clunky mechanics and garbage cooldowns that no longer have any place in the environment of pvp today. This season is the absolute worst it has ever been.

At any rate, I still play, and will keep playing. See you in TB...

God I hope you don't venture into the Beta forums. If you think think the PvP forums are bad, uggh, Beta forums. I can't even finish that sentence.

Beta never really interests me. It's nice to see what's coming, but what's on beta can be such a far shot from what goes live, I just prefer to wait, and avoid the idiots.

Mad love for this server. But glad to see you haven't quit Squid. I haven't seen you on as of late, though that may be due to my absence. Does DH do rbgs anymore? I heard you guys were pretty active in raiding now.

We do a bit of everything here and there. It's hard to organize rbgs, because everyone has really odd schedules right now, but I am trying to take polls and see what nights would be good for folk.

Love the server--just moved over from Turalyon a few weeks ago and find Thrall (And Alliance-side) a group of mature, kind, helpful people. I don't have a long list of trade-chat trolls ignored, and I am starting to know folks and recognize names in the community. This is a great server.

Squid, I'll support you for President--can I be your Secertary of Health and Humanoid Services? (I am a Resto Druid after all) :)

Wow, coming from Illidan, this is the last type of thread I thought I'd find on a Realm Forum. Wow.

basically, Illidan consists of; Death threats, Hacking, Guild Selling, Rating Selling, Insults, and People complaining there's too many !@#$%^-s on the server. Gj guys. Might be transferring, who knows ;).

Oh we have all that here. We call it, "Trade channel." =P

Illidan is a crazy-active realm though, isn't it? I've heard you guys have H DS pugs that go 6/8 on a regular basis, and very established raid community.

Indeed it is.

We have 7 guilds that have downed HM DW: http://www.wowprogress.com/pve/us/thrall

Illidan has 50: http://www.wowprogress.com/pve/us/illidan

They have 120 guilds that are 6/8, we have 21. It's a different world over there.
