please do excuse my -219... due to a comment on another post regarding botting, Nether-the-less... do you know if this has the same effect for Classic? or if you have made a thread for the Classic WOW relating to the all-star rankings?
Guide to rank :DPS1 - Get full gem + Corru2 - Pray for procHealer1 - Play at 2 healer or 3 for last 2 bosses2 - Pray that your mates will failOh and play a poor spec like demono, feral, survival, affli, frost.
Sadly top ranking in current patch for many of dps is completely based on RNG on infinite skill (stars) and convincing your RL to allow you to run 80+ corruption. For people who just clear and want to play it safe running sub 40 / 60 corruption will not even reach the top tier logs.
playing guardian druid prob helps
There is a ton of people interesting is ranking #1? I guess dreaming big doesn't hurt, but do know that some classes and specs are only rankable as Horde. Trolls, this amazing racial that well, as a mage if you're not a troll - you are not ranking epicly. I'm pretty sure this is true for warlock to right? And every other spec with haste being so valuable?
1. Bench as many healers as you can in every situation.2. Ignore mechanics and tell others to compensate.3. If there's aoe ignore boss dmg, go full cleave and tell others to stop unnecessary cleaving.4. If you're lucky and not one of the benched healers you must pick the most valuable situations for your own healing cds.Going for logs is just boring and fake.
So basically you use your teammates either your healers to make them push out extra healing or make them dps to be one of the only 1-2 healers etc in order to rank to get into better guilds? Sounds fine, I think I'll stick to measuring my personal progress and playing with people I like instead.
I hate the layers of metagaming people invent. When you give people a personal score they end up trying to maximize that score, at the detriment of the team. This is then exacerbated when people use that score to decide if you're good or not, affecting your ability to get groups. So people who do mechanics and thus have lower DPS are penalized while padders are rewarded.
What ever happened to playing WoW purely for the fun/enjoyment...?
While this is I guess helpful from a "fun" perspective, for people trying to use logs as a benchmark of how good a player is it's kinda misleading.Particularly during prog (which I guess is a thing of the past atm :P) having DPS hit the right things at the right time is much more helpful than people just padding to look good. There is always such a large element of RNG with so many of the corruptions (TD or stars procs) that getting above say a 95% is not always solely due to skill and the different between a 96th percentile and 100th percentile player is not just that one is better than the other.TL:DR to truely parse like a god, get rngesus on your side, make a comp solely designed for log whoring and ignore tactics for the sake of padding - yay! /s
Cheese strats and gimmick raid comps is the easiest way. And quickly becoming the only way as more and more people do pulls purely to pad parses lol.
