  1. 7.2 PvP Tier by class

    Really. Let's talk about this mythical "I win" scenario. Let's not forget that gunners, ATs SW and vandals weren't around. So we're only talking about plate, leather ,chain and sorcs/SMs. Will WA and BOI be an "I win" against cleric, sorcs, and SMs? Nope, since they only block physical damage. Inaddition, SMs had so many debufss, they would strip them right away anyway. How about rangers? Definitely not WA- doesn't help against ranged. BOI gave you a chance..while you were stunned, and slept.Rock,paper, scissors! How about plate? well definitely helped with glads, but glads weren't so hard back then (unless with an extendable). Templars were a bit harder. Now finally - sins. A sin with a brain would just run back and kill the sorc when WA and/or BOI was off. The CD was so long, it wasn't a problem. A sin who didn't notice WA up could auto-aatck to death, then rez and come back anytime within 5 minutes and rage kill the sorc. Basically this. Other class also were overdue for attention in the past. The difference is that sorcs are now way overdue and there's no sign (up to 7.5) of any changes that would have a meaningful impact.
  2. 7.2 PvP Tier by class

    Of course, sorc being one of the least played classes currently whenever I check in this patch it's pure coincidental, when historically ( I played since beta) as a rough rule of thumb the numbs of sorcs= glads. Of course, since then we've had SWs and vandals introduced, but this is the only patch where the numbers have consistently been this low, to the point that sometimes almost every class outnumbers them when I check. I guess all of them just need to L2P. Or just maybe-- at least 75% figured out that they could have better rewards and more enjoyment, with less work and less frustration by re-rolling or quitting.
  3. You're right..considering you said "even sorcs have bind" in the same sentence as rangers, when sorcs were the only cloth class that didn't have bind- and are still considered in the bottom tier for PVP- I really don't see that we're playing the same game.
  4. I honestly don't see what that has to do with the topic. Are you seriously saying that a ranger plays at all like a sorc? or either plays at all like a chanter? That would be a first. and no, not every class has anywhere near the same locking potential..which is one reason the game isn't balanced.
  5. Which makes sense, considering other physical classes don't have the same advantages that chanters do - the same buffs, heals stuns, binds , and their mantras. The last thing that we need is a return to 6.0 or 6.2 and overtuned chanters. I would hope that other classes that are in far worse shape are looked at but I doubt that it's going to happen.

    How so? No one was obligated to kick, however if they really felt stressed- all they had to do was to pass lead or vice. Done. Enough of their being asked to kick. Really, enough with the excuses for exploiting and abuse.
  7. Official EC-ban thread. Post your thoughts

    Best post so far. Again another example of avoiding responsibility. YOU can count for your self., YOU know how many runs you should have. YOU know how many you paid for with luna. YOU know whether or not you have prestige. While you might be able to make a point about how slow NC is to resolve certain problems, you turn around and destroy it by not taking responsibility for taking advantage of the exploit.
  8. @cyan really 2 seconds kill 1 vandal

    Yes as if a class with both long cast times and long CDs is going to be OP in comparison to classes with skills that are instant, almost at the same range and on shorter CD. Not to mention having these fantastic nukes not being so OP as soon as CC is used..... which thankfully is going to be corrected.

    to the jacka s s e s who think they are *helping* by kicking people who even explicitly ask NOT to be kick-ed WAKE UP geniuses- sometimes the game glitches- the CD can end up being lost (i.e. it bugs) or people can DC, etc. Let alone the fact that some people actually want to run EC i.e PARTICIPATE and PLAY. @Cyan Until we get a usual vote kick function (and that ain't going to happen) we need the kick disabled ASAP
  10. What a Shame

    Can you provide a simple, direct answer to the class and/or classes that you believe that a sorc can easily kill in 7.0 1v1 , and to clarify, without requiring Kaisenel transform. That's my simple question. I'm not inferring anything. You stated, I disagree- I simply want to to know which ones. I happen to believe you'll have a hard time coming up with it.
  11. What a Shame

    Thank you for posting the video, I always find your information very helpful. I have to admit I didn't go through the whole thing- but I did want to say that if that sorc has Kaisenel, that's really doesn't apply to any sorc that I personally know of as yet (the closest is an SM so far that I could compare to) I'm sure that it would help a lot.
  12. What a Shame

    Point is, what does maining a sorc 5 years ago or a screenshot do with playing one now? That's right- very little. You still haven't answered my question - what classes would a sorc easily be about to "100-o" now. in 7.0. Not years ago. If you read any of this as being "angry"- kindly stop dodging.
  13. What a Shame

    Doesn't main a sorc, and would recommend playing one but states' "that's it's very good-. Not a very convincing argument. Please name which classes a sorc can "very much" 100-0. An SM? a ranger? a glad? a vandal? a cleric...running out of "most" by now.. Incidentally, you happen to be incorrect about sorcs regarding the number of sets that they had to have a well prior to the introduction of magic suppression especially prior to the cap on MR. It wasn't quite as easy as "click on my one stigma" and I'm set.
  14. EC rewards bugged?

    Funny, because that's exactly what I what say you should do.- i.e. make your own alliances and stop quick queuing and trying to justify that you are owed an easy or guaranteed win through a quick queue. No one is- that's the way the system works, and it doesn't bother me at all. It isn't perfect, I'm aware that there are ways around it as well.
  15. EC rewards bugged?

    at least 50 % of the time, if more that "sure loss" could be a win if people weren't so lazy and just gave up instead they just screw over someone else by asking to be kicked without even trying. I would be ashamed.
