    personally, i'm too busy to run a team. if you consider the fact that theres a handful of 19s who actually have the situational awareness, individual ability to play at that lvl. remember that it still only leaves us with a handful, and if we look back to the past we will also remember in plebmades that incompetent people were usually not invited, so i believe that only one competent team will show, the rest will be fodder due to the over saturation of twinks and how dumbed-down its become. Everyone will believe its too easy and get rolled by that one team, these kids aint built the same, i foresee a lot of one and done, i hope otherwise.

    thats my 2 cents

    no wsg, its way too early to push for that. just try and get the smaller scene a little stabilized first (being arenas). wsg just takes too many people and i dont think there is that many looking to do this. also what scope said.

    Bgs aren't hard, they're just boring imo. As long as you have a solid team that listens to call outs, you're set.

    Arena is way more competitive rn than BGs. We need to stop living in the past. Just because 10v10s were cool in mop and wod doesnt mean that we have to stick to that same form of competitive games. Arenas are just in a better spot for 19s rn and I think a competitive arena tournament will not only have a biggest tournament, but it is an easier thing for newer players to get into so we can get more people into the competitive bracket

    Ehh, I haven't versed a good team yet then. Probably won't either considering the bracket is dead when it comes to 10v10

    I honestly feel like arenas would be the best path in general for the bracket. Now that we have skirmishes and a ranking system, we can actually rank ourselves outside of the yearly(?) 10v10 tournament. Obviously nobody cares about the skirmish rating, but that's because nobody queues except levelers. If we grew the bracket through arena, more teams would queue the bracket and eventually we would be able to queue mainteam vs mainteam in skirmishes for rating. Obviously wintrading and stuff would occur, but if the bracket got enough attention I'm sure it wouldnt be hard to just take the wintraders (and survs?) off the ladder. Obviously people would still snipe as surv to make people LOSE rating, but I mean there's only so much we can do.

    I think that "ranked" arena at 19 would attract alot more players too. People who are sick of 110 3s could roll a 19 and duck around on whatever they want because they are so easy to level and gear. 10v10s were popular in the past because we couldnt arena. Twinking used to be gearing the duck out and stomping kids in battlegrounds. So as twinks we got used to battlegrounds. But now we have a viable arena option that is actually RANKED.

    I don't know, this is just how I feel. I think the bracket has a lot of potential, even if it is just because "they are easy to gear and start playing"

    Cause some faggo ts premaded d19 and then went to the forums to shitpost how bad they were. That's your guys own fault. I wouldn't be supersied if d19 disbanded everytime something get going people shut them down. There is no positivity in twinking everything is toxic.

    I don't even take part in the premade 10v10s that go on now just because the negative vibe, lol. I rather enjoy helping people as much as I can (if they want it) than just bashing their play style.

    Thank you man, we just try to have fun and want to revive twinking and open it as something new for new people interesting in twinking. But so many people think D19 as one is bad. I'll admit some players are not at the same skill level as other players in the guild. But some people think all of us are terrible because of the guild name under our names. People who constantly bash new twinks are one of the reason the bracket is dieing. But other people are trying to just play like @Hotpocketx and many others. Then there are the others who actually want to revive the bracket and want to see how it used to be. And i know someone will respond to this saying "oh but people being toxic is what you gotta do now, it's what everyone does."

    And to the people who are toxic 24/7, learn to lighten up a bit and enjoy what you can.

    Someone isn't going to even bother trying to improve themselves as a player with negative reinforcement, surround yourself with good players and good vibes and you're gonna pick up a lot of things you didn't know prior very fast.

    You know I think I've learned the most in wow from "toxic" players at least when I was pretty active the toxic ones were the only ones who would call you out for trucking up

    Yeah, its the unfortunate reality that the better players tend to be elitist and toxic, not all of them, but its a consistent theme I've witnessed in the 12 years I've played this game.

    I'm normally only nasty towards people when they're nasty towards me first, otherwise I'm outside org sometimes and people I don't know come up and ask for help and I'm glad to help them all that I can, I'm not even nearly the best player out there, but I'm more than willing to teach people what I know.
