Recommended Posts

Blizzard has revamped the Report User Interface in Patch 9.2.5, giving you more options to choose from when reporting others.

You must click on a player's portrait and select the Report Player option to bring up the new UI. You have 3 reasons to choose from in the open world. You can report players for Cheating, Gameplay Sabotage, and Inappropriate Name.

Every reason has subcategories that help specify your report. You can select multiple ones if you so desire.

Inappropriate Name

  • Character Name
  • Battle Tag
  • Group name
  • Guild Name

I have a strong feeling that big headed m+ players will take advantage of "blocking progress" when a small mistake is made in a pug group. Of course, right after they leave in the middle of a key too, gotta show the other players that their time is more valuable than anyone else's

what does this mean?

  • Intentionally Feeding

 

It's when you repeatedly/intentionally die to give kills to the enemy or "feed them with kills" hence intentional feeding.

They are already blocked because of the war

Ohhhhh, when did that happen?

Well, good thing Blizzard learned their lesson with female abuse, and stands firmly on their policy of no-discrimination!

I think that it’s just a biproduct of Russians being unable to effectively pay for the gametime now because of swift or something like that. But correct me if I am wrong.

blizzard said 07.03 that russians cant create a new abo nor buy more game time or purchase anything in their games while the war lasts

if they have an active abo that lasts for example 6 month they still have that game time but cant get more. still that announcment could also have been caused by the swift ban

Russians are barely affected by this as most already use VPNs or are savvy enough to set it up if they want, those who left are mostly people who dislike blizzard for this move.

Would this even change anything if their accounts are already in Russian region and they are playing on Russian servers? Since they were already identified as belonging to certain region, VPN can't mask that or is it that simple?

Anyway, hopefully this report system is effective and not easy to abuse. If it's all automated, then some people may potentially abuse it simply because they didn't like certain player, for example.

Come now, players of Russia and the surrounding countries play both on RU servers as well as EU ones. Theoretically, if they wanted to, they could've blocked every single account registered in Russia. But, for some reason, they might be thinking players will be back.

Blizzard do not have any law-related obligation to do anything, naturally, they are only forbidden to do business with those two republics unrecognized by the world by US laws, hence why those accounts are getting banned.

Add to it giving out 2 free months worth of game time to all accounts registered in neighbouring countries, as apparently their sign of "supporting Ukraine and pressuring Putin" (lol), commenting on how they are looking for the ways to make payments possible - again, for those countries exclusively, not for Russian players as well.

I don't think could be a better way to demonstrate their attempts of improving and "fighting against discrimination" after that lawsuit than what you're looking at - discriminating players who do not even take part in this sh*tshow by definition, for no sensible reason, but the hypewave.

      There's been many a hyperspawn in Pandaria, granting players with different amount of Bronze per hour. Everyone's been swarming every new potential spot while Blizzard scrambles to shut them all down as fast as possible. The original hyperspawn sin, the frog farm, even elicited a round of nerfs to a whole lot of people, but it also brought in a specific piece of compensation, which made a certain other farm pretty great.
      With all the post-frog changes, it turns out that leveling alts could be the next best Bronze farm, as Blizzard keep shutting every other one down. The biggest change came in the form of three new quests at levels 50, 60 and 70, granting 3,000, 7,000 and 30,000 of the currency. Added to the approximately 30-ish thousand Bronze players gather up through leveling, that comes out to 70,000 Bronze per alt.
      But the Bronze quests weren't the only things buffed since the frog apocalypse, as XP gains and level scaling has also been adjusted.
      Hotfixes (Source)
      Enemy power scaling, particularly in group content, has been adjusted to be less aggressive. This is particularly applicable in the player level 40 - 70 range, before players have been able to power up their cloak, upgrade their gems, and increase their item level. The first-time bonus for queueing each LFR wing will grant a Thread of Experience in addition to the existing Lesser Bronze Cache. Developers’ notes: This should improve LFR as a viable choice for leveling main characters and alts, without players feeling like they need to grind the same LFR wing repeatedly. We have added bonus experience to each boss in normal dungeons and scenarios so they are a viable alternative to questing. Bonus experience has also been adding to the last boss of Heroic Scenarios. Heroic dungeon bosses will continue to drop bonus experience. For everyone that did not take advantage of the frog farming, we’re providing three additional quests with large Bronze rewards for reaching levels 50, 60, and 70. These quests will become available from Momentus the item upgrader at the Jade Forest Infinite Bazaar. These milestone quests will grant characters an additional 3,000, 7,000, and 30,000 Bronze, respectively. What this now means is that via regular dungeon spamming (Normal and Heroic), as well as the first-time Look for Raid XP bonuses for each raid, you can get to level 70 pretty quickly, with some players getting it done in around 5 hours! Now sure, these fast leveling times include the cloak XP bonus, but that's relatively easy to get on at least one character, and you probably already have it if you've been playing. The Infinite Growth II, III and IV quests pop up at the Jade Forest Bazaar and are marked on your map with the new purple quest marker, so you can't miss them.
      There's nothing particularly special here, it really is just spamming dungeons and running the LFR for the first clear bonuses when the queue pops. You can also do regular quests or the daily quests, as the give a pretty solid chunk of XP, and you can do those while you wait for the LFR queue as well.
      So if you're taking 5 hours to level an alt, with a presumed 30K Bronze while leveling and the 40K from quests, that comes in at around 14K an hour. Granted that's nowhere near the 60K an hour from the original frogs, but it's not that extremely far away from the new hyperspawns. Plus it's not infinite boring and you get a bunch of level 70 chars as a bonus!  There probably are a few more hyperspawn farms available that are significantly better, but since those keep popping up and being knocked down by Blizzard, this seems a lot more stable, especially long-term.

      Considering leveling alts fast was the primary reason to even play Remix for a lot of players, this is a real win-win. As many players commented, it seems the best way to farm Bronze is... to play MoP Remix as intended!

      Proving Grounds in MoP Remix are easy to complete and reward you with 3 prestigious titles!
      You're probably asking why the hell would someone want to complete Proving Grounds in MoP Remix. Well, for one, there are 3 achievements (1 per role) that award titles and they are account-wide, so if you did not complete them on live servers yet, you can do that in MoP Remix and it will be much simpler.
      Let's break down the achievements and titles:
      Proving Yourself: Endless Tank (Wave 30) - Rewards "the Proven Defender" title. Proving Yourself: Endless Healer (Wave 30) - Rewards "the Proven Healer" title. Proving Yourself: Endless Damage (Wave 30) - Rewards "the Proven Assailant" title.  
      To enter the Proving Grounds, speak with Trial Master Rotun inside the Temple of the White Tiger in Kun-Lai Summit in MoP Remix.

      Discover the steps to get the Theramore Tabard and the Mini-Mana Bomb toy in the MoP Remix event!
      Players have discovered that the Theramore Tabard and Mini Mana Bomb toy are available in the MoP Remix event. However, these items cannot be purchased from vendors.
      To obtain them, you need a Level 35 character and must complete the "Theramore's Fall" scenario. After completing the scenario, the toy or tabard will be mailed to you, depending on your faction.
      Unfortunately, there's currently a bug where characters who reach Level 36 during the scenario won't receive the rewards.
      To avoid reaching Level 36 inside the scenario, simply unequip your cloak to remove the XP buff. This will make you weaker, but it ensures you earn the rewards.
      Hopefully, Blizzard will soon release a hotfix to address this issue.
