The PvP Forum and You
This is just a friendly reminder that while the PvP forum exists as a separate place to focus on discussion of PvP-related issues -- primarily arena matchups and class balance specifically as relates to PvP -- it is still a part of the overall EJ forums and the philosophy and rules underlying these forums.
Posts are expected to have substance, and posters are expected to not be lazy. No one wants a forum full of "is [team composition X] good?" or "how should I spec my mage??" For narrow one-off questions you should also check out the forums on Arena Junkies , which is a good site dedicated entirely to WoW PvP, and gets a fair bit of traffic directly along those lines. Obviously giving and receiving advice are also going to be major areas of discussion on these forums, but I'd prefer if people also tried to bring something to the table in terms of their own thoughts on the matter before asking for help. ("I play XYZ and we always lose! Help!" is bad. "I play XYZ and we keep losing to ABC because they focus our Y and he can't contribute, how can we stop this?" is better.)
Also, a note about "elitism": For many of the people who are used to being in the top 1% of the PvE population, discussing raid encounters and whatnot, and who are getting into arena PvP as well, please check your egos at the door. While we don't currently have any plans to formally present and verify arena ratings the way arenajunkies does, it's important to understand where you and others are coming from, when giving or receiving advice. Something that works at 1650 may not work, at all, at 2150, and the difference is simply that your opponents are making huge mistakes or are too uncoordinated to take advantage of glaring weaknesses. Yes, rating matters. Experience matters. It's no different than PvE in that regard, really. How seriously would you take someone who comes into a thread about rogue DPS and comments on how well their Seal Fate build worked in Mechanar? You might be farming Illidan on Tuesdays every week, but when weekend respec time comes, if you're rated 1650, then you are that noob running Mech. Don't forget that. Try to keep some perspective regarding where you stand in that regard and where people you're talking to stand. It's painful at times watching someone who PvPs casually at 1700 trying to give advice regarding matchups at the 2300 level -- no different than someone who exclusively runs 5 mans commenting on how to do Illidan.
