Misses...

I must say, I don't enjoy misses or crits, even when things miss me and I crit.

The whole nature of turn-based is executing a known ability against another known ability. Tossing in RNG to the extent of suddenly doing double damage when I only intended for normal so that I could do something else is just frustrating. Or missing 3 times in a row with a 90% hit chance ability. It's not like 'hitting' feels like a reward, so I'm not sure why missing should feel like a penalty, especially when I can't eliminate it forcibly like I can on my character.

Zenjmo, let me ask you something. Why do you choose to stack crit as your highest secondary stat?


On my actual toon? My Monk? I'll be very honest I solo through the game and rarely do I raid, I don't PvP on my toon but in Pet Battles I do, and I honestly don't pay any attention to secondary stats.

You are in a way asking to remove strategy so your strategy will mean more.


I am sorry but i don't quite grasp this concept? Maybe I am a little confused.

OK. So I really don't see RNG and accuracy going away, even with the overwhelming amount of players, including me, B!tc#ing about it.

Maybe it shouldn't go away. I don't know anymore, at the moment. How can I get to a point of compromise, if there even is one, to still playing and choosing my heavy damage moves and strong pets AND dealing with the frustration and shear anger of the forced upon me, missing and more added RNG?

I simply don't know how you know that for sure.

Mr. Wiggles.


Very funny you should say that because I have tried a LOT to make a solid team with him for a while now. He is starting to become my favorite pet or maybe the luck move of his my favorite move?

Plus, I have rarely seen him come up on really any teams I have played against. I have seen him before but maybe not even a handful of times lol.

sorry. Didn't mean for that to come across as I know that for sure. I am just losing almost all my hope that it would.

Plus, I am thinking a lot more about it now. Maybe it shouldn't go away. IDK.

For the record, I don't think Yij was going to berate you for toon gearing choices. I bet there was an observation about the random nature of crits coming your way. :)

On the bright side, if I don't pet battle any more, because of the misses, I'll earn lots more IP for the next LoL champ.

I agree. Baseline misses give baddies a chance to win.

I'm tired of losing matches to baddies, because they have better luck than me. I would also say remove baseline crit chance for the same reason.

I would have 250+ PvP wins by now if it wasn't for garbage RNG.

So, can we put you down as solidly behind this excert from page 11?

I understand that. I was actually trying to get confirmation as to which category of the Anti-RNG group you fell into.

But after re reading this part of your post ......

and checking out your progress, I realized it didn't matter.

I'm curious which group you put me into, lol.

If it weren't for Frost Tombs and Nether Gates missing in Sandstorm, I don't think it would be very "fair" for the majority of the people I face to have to fight me. <.<

I have more wins than listed, it's slow to update.

Are you starting to get snarky? Trust me, you don't want to emulate the other (unnamed) poster on this forum who is on a fair amount of people's ignore lists!

I didn't know there was pet battle elitism.

Sheesh.

And apparently the casuals, who want battles decided by RNG, are somehow the elitists, lol... go figure.

@Meliahr. Not snarky. But after the same arguments are rehashed by both sides for 21 pages I admit that I start taking pleasure in pointing out people who are obviously exaggerating.

@Axe. For an example of elitism, see Planet's first post on page 21.
