Angel of Death

Got my new gear. 1 Veteran BG belt, 1 Merciless Gladiator Headpiece, and 1 Merciless Gladiator Leggings. The helm wasn't designed right and my hair sticks out the back. I also never understand why WoW never actually uses "black" as a color. It's supposed to be black but then it looks grey instead. Oh well.
Everyone was making fun of my helm so I kept it on display. hehehe.

It was quite fun buying all the new gear after so dilegently saving for so long. We were all like kids in a candy store!

I found out later that they spawned an Arena vendor in Stormwind because of the massive PvP carnage that was going on in Netherstorm. It was really messing people's purchases up and probably overwhelming the GM ticket line.

Anyhow. We PvPed our 5v5 games tonight to see how we'd do. We did fairly well. Like 17-9. For the first several matches we were going against fairly new teams and we dominated them. Then as we almost hit 1658 rating, we hit a ton of 2000k rated teams from last season. It was harsh. You just know when you're being out played. It sucks...just like the same way when you know you're out playing another team. Complete and utter domination.

Some teams just know their sh*t inside and out. Who to go after first, who to CC, when to CC. And not only do they know these things, they perform them flawlessly.
That's the level of play you strive for as team of course.

Also, here's another tip. Don't play past a certain time. Create a cut off point. Playing when people are tired even though you want to keep playing actually hurts. Nerves start to snap.. people start playing the blame game..etc..

It's better to play when everyone is still fresh and more accepting of constructive critcism. Because everyone needs to improve but some people have attitude problems regarding hearing it. I have my limits as well of course but for the most part I'm pretty open to suggestions.

I'm not sure what our line up is going to be this season. I think we have one of the other Arena teams in our guild merging with us because they lost people. Not sure how that will work out but we'll see.

More than anything, I just want to play.

Practice Arena and GRIND BG HONOR.. that's my goal for the next couple of weeks.

Overheard since Alachia got her new headpiece:

"These aren't the battlegrounds you're looking for"

"I find your lack of faith disturbing"

"You don't know the power of the arena!"

"You have failed me for the last time"

Darth Alachia!
