Fate's my destroyer

Everyone seems to be doin BG posts this week....

And so I had two really awesome WSG's over the weekend.


What's that you say? What's goin on with Melvin? Er... well Melvin and his brother lose at WSG all the time. I told him that I tend to win WSG about as much as I win AV... (75% or so). So he talked me into getting the three of us together for WSG.

I did 7 games that day, and the only one I lost was when I was with those two. Melvin usually aint bad at BG's... but he really doan get the point of WSG. Keep in a group, distract/slow rather than kill, and nerf druids!

Bloodlust (the attitude, not the spell) isa terrible thing in BG's.

Have to hand it to Braids. She made a pretty serious, and subtle AB point. A lotta the time, people defending flags tend to be AFK. If they doan move when you approach the flag... try for the quick cap. Also, try to approach from outside the normal field of vision... a lotta pve welfare epic grinders doan "check six" as it were...

But back to WSG... I tooka screenshot of my finest game. Three times I had to storm the ally keep and singlehandedly recover the flag. Once, the rogue holding it was unable to jump down to the flag room cuz of three tard horde milling around. The rest of the time... me alone. Frost shock means they aint gettin away. Blessing of freedom can be dispelled little pally...

The stat Ima most proud of... deaths. In WSG... gettin them to kill ya can be a big strategic advantage. I like to hit em before they make the ramp at the start... sometimes, you can rez and hit them again before they make it to the flag room. If ya slow em enough, your flag carrier and entourage can catch them as they emerge from the tunnel....

Plus its always easier to die than drink in WSG.

The other weird game... 45 min, we won 3-2. Only after a hunter on our team did something brilliant... he started lurking near the ally GY. And everytime their resto druid popped and started running to our base, our hunter would intercept. We, OTOH, had only rogues to run the flag back. Between cheat death and cloak of shadows, rogues are pretty good flag carriers... but not as good as prot warriors, druids or pallies...

Don't nerf Resto druids I just started to love playing them. Though even if they aren't a resto druid if a flag carrier has a healer with him slow down the FC and kill/CC that healer before nuking the FC.

Frost shock is good for the most part but I think a bit overused. If you're facing a healer/spellcaster don't forget about Earth Shock.

With the next updated patch though Cheat Death won't be quite as good.

What interface addon do you use? That looks awesome!

I've been considering switching to Pearl, I've head a lot of good things about it.

X pearl frame units, bongos2, totem timers for the shammy, and recount in the corner...

be careful with recount, only use if your system has the muscle, itsa real hog.
