Arena Tournament

You could have stuck to talking up arena but noooo, you had to juxtapose arena on top of world pvp and call it head bashing.

Let me make this easier for you Phooze. Imagine being in a cell with 3 to 5 jail cell thugs. Now imagine being on the street with them on one side with their friends and you on the other side with your friends. Now unless you happen to be a heavy weight street fighter you and your friends are probably gamers with little experience in fighting so you'd stand in a crowd of them as the fighting begins. Hoping to get a solid blow in thrashing wildly until you see those around you drop, you begin to flee to a building. Inside there are more people willing to help fight off the now fading but still heavy thugs, you regroup and have another chance to pop out and claim victory. That's the difference between world pvp and arena. You have a queue timer and a limit of 5 - 10 people while we have a chance to attack and reset slowly till only we are left standing but we have to regroup and run back.

Possibly cut legendaries. Put not PvE gear. That will mess with a few teams, my own included.

This sounds fun though. My only question is this. Is it a 1 loss and out or is it a best of 3 scenario. Personally I think a best of 3 might be the best way to get the most accurate results.

I have no illusions that I would win but I love the idea.

So let me get this straight..

You know absolutely nothing about arena, and it sounds like you know absolutely nothing about the game entirely.

Sounds about right.

nagrand is no doubt the most balanced arena but i think only having those 2 choices would be quite boring


nagrand might really be the only "fair arena" map imo---everything else really favors melee too much imo

but thats just my opinion

nagrand is definitely the most balanced, but the op or melee thing isnt true for any other arenas :p

if people want, we could use ONLY nagrand arena, but i feel like that would get super boring.
hey, maybe we can give it a shot and if people start messing around then we'll move to wargames.

maybe even get everyone alliance, horde into the vent to watch the spectacle in a 'crowded boxing match' type environment

the competitors could be announced, results and --- an excessive show of force allowed by one faction if someone decides to play the fool.

Yeah, legendaries is a tough subject I guess. It might not make as much of a difference for casters as it does for rogue legendaries.

Also: For sure count me in. Not sure who I will be partnered with but get ready to face some almighty wrath, amirite?

Also, dont get me wrong, I love the idea of a spectated match out in the world but I think that would make it much more difficult to adhere to, and to properly govern, the same rules as a wargame. My biggest concerns are: Bloodlust, Battlerez, Lay on Hands, Potions, Flasks, Ahnk.

It tilts the scale heavily towards very specific comps.

Nah I know something about this game, the part you insulted and now you have to keep answering this crap. Now you can keep on firing off at me or stick to talking up your arena. But this is am RPPvP realm so what the hell are you doing trashing the last bit of Horde vs Alliance? PvP realm that way >>

k go away now, you're getting your panties in a bunch over something YOU made up, you came in to a thread titled "arena tournament" and said this:

Everyone wants to play instead of waiting for other teams to finish or getting picked last for a team. It would be fun to have something out in the world like Gurubashi where people could watch easier.
I'd still rather have a kind of the hill battle of world pvp personally cause arena and rbgs already give titles for people to walk around SW letting the realm know it happened. Like you guys are great I know you'd win at arena.


if i wanted to make a world pvp event, i'd advertise for it. YOU CAME IN CRITICIZING FIRST, and i responded POLITELY in a post addressing you, spenca, and starlight, saying that i wanted this to be an arena or wargame event, not some massive world pvp event.

The nru does events like this all the time and you don't even do Org raids how can you say it's like ramming your head into Org


where the hell did i say this on this thread? the only thing i said about world pvp was

07/24/2012 08:15 AMPosted by Phooze
I just want something for people to do outside of constantly throwing themselves at their opposing factions city for a change.


seriously you're making up !@#$ and arguing with yourself about it. shut. the. hell. up.
if you don't like the event, i could care less, you can stop visiting the thread and not participate, stop craving attention here and wasting my time with your 13 year old intelligence level and pathetic responses.

It's not like there's a lot to know about World PvP. Attack first, use CC, have larger numbers.

Quit tryin to chop up world pvp and feedin it to your flavorless cookie cutter pvp game cause you totally mentioned NRU and that our raids were head ramming ( not skull bashing sorry) and you fully started that junk.
I used to pvp till dawn in Tarren Mill and AV and when arena came out i got to 1900 and quit because I felt and still feel it's PvP the reduced version. And here you are coming out campaigning for an arena event like world pvp is its boring big brother, so get to a purely PvP server you two bit treasure troll.
