    Good idea, will definitely look into it.

    I would consider adding some things to the ban list:

    1. Viking Helm

    Does too much for the slot. It's fun as hell - but it's probably too much for a 3v3 ladder at 20. Compared to something like the shaman gladiator helm, which is overpowered but not game defining, the viking helm effectively gives plate wearers an endgame CC spell and gapcloser.

    2. BM Hunters

    For similar reasons to Survival. They warp games around them in a way that not even the 3-4 S-tier classes do. Along with Surv, they should be in Ban tier. The DPS isn't that great, but the burst during Bestial Wrath outpaces even Arms - without the melee range risk.

    3. Staff of the One True Bramble King

    For similar reasons that the GF'd ilvl 49 weapons should be banned. It's too much of an advantage, even if not technically grandfathered. You're never going to guarantee perfect balance, but bramble king is a clear mistake by Blizzard that dramatically impacts game quality (on classes that are generally fine without it).

    4. Grandfathered Abilities

    The only one I can think of is the succubus seduction macro - and I only know of one warlock who has that. It is unfair mainly by principle rather than by effect. Having seduction as a button press is really good, but the bigger issue in my view is that other warlocks simply would not have access to this button. Imagine it determining the outcome of a mirror match.

    Feel free to do that in public games. I have ilvl49s on all my toons, but theres no point making games unbalanced.


    Thanks Bop, added those to the list.

    If anyone has any other contributions to the list please let me know. I'm also looking for people who want to help Mod this/ these events. HMU on Discord Fato#3425

    Just a bit curious how you are going to mod each match?

    and can you put that its a 3v3 season somewhere in your title so my brain stops going "FUCK! SOMEONE BEAT ME TO IT"
    (I'm planning a 2v2 season in the future but I'm waiting on some third party software to help mod games)

    I personally don't think the Shaman helm should be banned - but for consistency sake, it makes sense. If you look at it compared to a 3 socket helm, it's actually not all that good. And Rsham is taking a risk not using Circle in every match anyways.

    I consider garrosh GFd gear, I would be using some in my sets for example but dont have it

    Some meta gems are very strong tho, mana proc, cast speed etc. I would say just better to ban it to keep it simple.

    I'm excited for yet another attempt to generate some organized competitive play to get derailed by people who havent (and wont) sign up suggesting and arguing about theoretical bans on gear.

    Just sign up. If you lose to some esoteric, broken ass piece of gear, lets talk about it after this has gotten off the ground for a bit yea?
