Frost maegzs arent cool, they are haxx, and need a nerf (more than 1 actually)

Before I watch, is this another "look at me make big numbers to annoying music" video?

they are cool because sometimes they forget druids can get out of snares and slowing so i can give them a nice big hug

well, at least this vid shows that mages are not gimped :) we r an overpowered class. to those who said mages are too weak are nubs that need to l2p or reroll lock/shadowpriest .... vurtne thinks so :)

fixed!

vurtne (guy in that video) is/was on the same server as my lock.. cant remember if he transferred.. i met him twice.. he ran away twice.. one of my guildies (mage) made a pvp video.. halfway through it says "i wanted to get clips of me killing vurtne... but he just keeps running away.. so ill put that in instead" the video isnt great tho.. Humong = best mage on sylvanas.. and probably the best mage ive seen ;o he didnt use engineering either.. videos make ppl look better than what they really are most of the time ;p

You know, it's the fanboy stuff again. Yes, Vurtne isn't bad. But if only he'd be half as good as people like to think he is, it would actually bring something special to watch.

Sure, he manages to show off some nice control in the vid. But then how many fights did he -not- show to finally get one like that?

Using engi in a 1vs1 (oh noe, a hunda!) was never something I admired either. That combined with a total lack of fighting non-melee as a frost mage... it were -mostly- rogues really, of which most seemed to lack CloS too (handing playing in the lower lvl bit). Oh really, no locks in the vid, why would that be? :P

And anyhow with buffed hp all around, I really don't think it would be that easy to take out a group by jumping and blinking about whilst "spamming" FN+CoC. So yes, 'ausum', now do it on 70.

Not saying I'd do it any better or w/e, but I do think his "awesome skills" are up for a heavy debate. I've seen unknowns do as well, if not better. Vids are nice, but biased.

It's enjoyable video. Still as someone mentioned before: videos usually show you better than you are

Agreed. Entertaining, as a video should be, but cherry-picked, as most pvp vids are. Shrug.

Istr Ashen posting a straight fraps dump of one wsg match...

Of course, that doesn't make for much of a movie. Just useful for going over a match to see what mistakes you made, and cherry picking the good bits for your edited "official" movies. :)

And what makes you think that particular WSG match wasn't cherry-picked? :)

Fairy nuff... they did win :)

(Twas the hour long match that ended with a few seconds to spare before server shutdown, iirc... so was only noteworthy because of that; could have gone either way.)


I'll agree that all the edited movies deliberately include fights to show the author's point in the best light. (Whether they actually achieve that or not is another matter.)

It was probably one of the best WSG matches I've played, like ever. No game really ever was that tense and still enjoyable. And I say that knowing we lost it in that last second, yes! And I still regret that :P

So cherry-picked noes, just a really really cute coincidence² that deserved to be published. That said, I'm guessing only the participants really thought it to have any value.

Vurtne's movies were always entertaining..

Althou i think Shivan and the Otherguy show much better how to be a mage. Trouble is you can't really rate any of them unless you watch there uncut footage, only then would you see if they were as good as there movies make them out to be.

<<-- 2.5 Years as a Frost mage....now looking burn everything.
