Many of us are aware of the excitement that surrounds the end of a season, for some it is the anticipation of their own accomplishments being rewarded after pushing every rating point they can to achieve a gladiator title – but for all of us it’s the drama, and Season 11 delivered.
Where to begin?
As usual i’ll be doing my best on keeping everyone up to date on the end of season rank1 drama/happenings in EU. If you have any additional info that i’m missing, feel free to hit me up on skype if you know me or post in the comments if you don’t!
blackout 3v3 nothing happened, ziqo played rmd & mage/mage/druid with blud/båtenx/heaton
5v5 was a share between two of ziqo’s with kalimist/tarnya/heaton/blud/båtenx and minnpojke/evleh/duskfall/ponzai/shawir
there was a team that went for #1 but the paladin in the team was a friend of ziqo and he knew they couldnt race them (ziqo played same comp 90% win, they had 55% win)
so he didnt sign more once they hit the 2600 mark because all he would do is fuck our tie up and fuck his friends over for no reason since they had already been farmed by ziqo and they had a much better % and less games in general.
We faced enteyjin’s tsg on my stream on the last day of the season while just playing for fun, beat them and saw they were at a whopping 3k mmr (they hadnt played the whole season and were making a final push for r1!) I think the picture shows what happened acurately and i also have a statement from enteyjin himself:
“If you queued 3s the past few months you would have known that nothing is really going on there. So nearly nothing in the 3v3 ladder changed.In 5s it was clear who is gna get rank 1. Without a
doubt everyone of em will get the title coz blizz allows sharing. But then some people whispered us that skrillêx is gna disband the 3v3 team so the fmp will get rank 1. coz the mage in the fmp is getting played by ”akyraz” who is in gerus team and he is also playin ”yunia”. He would get 3 rank one titles. Over 20 people whispered us that we have to do something or the priest and the feral in the fmp will get the title which they honestly don’t deserve. Then I contacted a guy named ”ludahx”. He had a team on 2900. So I told him that we gna queue and if we meet them they will get 300€ each person. Well he was stupid enough to queue into us. When i noticed that hydra was queuen aswell we decided to queue into them. Was pretty close but we lost. We finished with 2988 at 6:10 p.m. It was mean but 80% of the rank one teams are wintraded or ddos (hi @wizik). Overall we didnt stole rank one from anyone and I hope we gna be friends again… someday” - entyjin
[13:23:39] Geru: that he didn't do it so ph eonyo doesn't get #1 [13:23:45] Geru: because that actually sounds as if he is a fair guy [13:23:50] Geru: which is completely wrong [13:24:07] Geru: they wintraded to get #1 for themself and he tries to justify it with lies [13:24:24] Geru: why would 20 people whisper him, who is #10 [13:24:29] Geru: and not boetar who is #3 [13:24:52] Geru: and if he only wanted to take #1 away from pheonyo who was #2 and who would have gotten it if we deleted team (what we never wanted) why didn't he play between those 2 teams
three way share between kajn’s team, BOETAR’s team and yunialegendarymage’s team.
Khuna’s rmp got r1 in the first week and camped it the whole season.
Top team were basically safe since the start of the season running 100% win loss with the overpowered wizard comb, skoe just left the team because he raged at the mage even tho they were #1 :):)
Trize and Skyrie who have recently taken on big DDoS hero Simontja and are doing pretty much what Starcookie’s team was doing a few weeks ago before they got exposed and chucked Simontja out (Details of this can be found in a previous post). A quote from the shaman in a 5v5 team on frenzy:
We were queueing 5v5 on Frenzy at a peak of 2750 mmr into teams like Duskfall’s main team on Misery, Blukstack’s main team on cruelty and various other teams above 2.6k.
Right the way up to 2613 (R1) we had about 2750 mmr around the 2500 ratings, however this is when my mage suddenly dc’s in the starting area and can not relog until his character has disappeared from the arena. The team we faced on this first occasion was Simonjta’s (you might remember him from Ziqo’s previous post) RMPLS at around 2400 mmr. This is the link to the RMPLS -
After this game I (shaman) was added to a skype conversation with Wizik, Skyrie, Trize and a few others but most importantly Simonjta. I left straight away after realising who he was and what his greezy hands were capable of, screenshot here:
I restarted my router (not being on static IP) and created a new skype account and was good to go. In the mean time our mage had about 8 or 9 different people add him on skype including someone pretending to be Moldran offering him boosts. He declined them all.
We kept queueing 5v5 at this point trying to get our rating up to match the two rank 1 teams (inb4 flaming for r1 sharing) and it went OK, we ground our MMR back up to around 2680 but then we queued again into Simonjta’s RMPLS and as soon as the gates opened our mage dc’d from skype and WoW.
Our mage has pretty much the best and most reliable internet you can buy in Norway and he has *never* disconnected from the internet in general before until this and the incident earlier in the day.
During this 4v5 vs Simonjta’s team we kept going for 13minutes on RoV until losing when they got a dance bomb on our priest with no trinket + Dots and a shatter. Here is the screenshot from that arena game:
One thing you can deduce from this game is that all five of their team were active in the game however once our mage got back he logged onto his main skype and whispered Trize (the lock) to leave the game. This is a quote from Trize to Hydra about his activity during the game:
Trize/Howard: didnt do shit whole game
Trize/Howard: already told josef i dont want to do it
Trize/Howard: was casting soulfire etc just running about
Look back at the screenshot and you can see Trize is top damage on his lock, so much for not doing any damage ay? The main thing I want to point out in this post though, above everything else is the fact that Trize / Skyrie and pretty much anyone who participated in this are snakes. Like Starcookie there is always the get out clause that Simonjta will ddos them back but we have to ask the question to WHY you would add anyone like that on skype? Or even reading Ziqo’s post a couple of days ago why wouldn’t anyone delete him.
I hope this acts as a warning to the majority of people who read this and especially the rank 1 cruelty team as I think we know what Simonjta / Skyrie and Trize are aiming for :)
A quote from meganfox in tharkum’s team:
Hello Hydra, let’s summarize the ranks of cruelty:
rank1 3s = wintrade team,trize team,still dont ban
rank2 = me tharkum method ,
For the 5s ,we ended rank1 – 2733. Rank 2 was the wintrader ddoser team with simonjta ,we won EVERYTHING last day ,we had a sick score of 36-5 losing 4 game by ddosed from that fucker,at 2 am trize realize that we had 10 point more than him he start to que, 2 AM he ddos the team:
and an other team at 1:45 they were 2728,we coudnt play because tharkum (who was at house friend to play for dodge ddos ) had to go back home, so we invite a resto druid to the team – THX SAPPHIRE we join agaist them, triple Healer- (method-dreamz sapphire)+ double lock and we tank them in RoV for 10 min till the server down we ended 2733 (LEGIT RATING) them 2728 hahahaha so we get our deserved title. I hope you guys get ban forever,wintrading ,DDOSING and still losing your title.
[15.06.44] simontja: Hi mar****89! I’d like to add you on Skype. simontja
Similar story to Rampage, daanzka’s mls reached 3039 rating in the first week, closely followed by wizik’s cleave (4 points behind or so). Wizik gained the last 4 points in the last few days of the season to share.
daanzka/mir/azshene/xuna/spooky took rank1 at 2778 rating very early on in the season and were pretty much unreachable for the remainder.
Some wintrade team called hydra play shin wintraded months ago and still havnt been banned.
Ceon: http://hydramist.tv/arena/return-of-the-mmr-exploits-and-the-interrupt-hacks/ - post from the site a few months back
Skoe was playing the mage in the rank 1 team, they stayed on that rating for a long time and asked lollipopz’s team to share with them, and he did even though the teams hate each other. The priest got hacked by the “shin” mage and he couldn’t get his pr restored.
Not much happened here, there was a guy dualboxing/wintrading his own cahrs but blud’s team was able to convince him to share with them or they would get him banned.
Misery 3s, got rank 1 first week of season, camped it for the rest of the season. Only good team on misery though.
pmuch the same with the 5s team, but i think they did it a bit later on in the season in order to get everybody in the team rank 1
Dakkroth, druden & raiku got 3174 rating in the first week, sat there for rest of the season unreachable by anyone else.
My 5v5 team, due to ppl having other commitments we wern’t able to play so much and we eventually ended on the same rating as Roevsvamp’s team.
Skoe’s team (the same people who got r1 on cataclysm) shared with elmelol’s since they’re friends. Some 2.6k mmr team was queing on last day but they weirdly dissapeared apparently some inside drama the mage of that team apparently disbanded the team.
The following is a quote from a top secret detective informant ^_^
Alot of wintrading was going on one lately on reckoning.
As for example team
This is the main team of those 2 guys (robin and Mikkel) both close friends of Simontja. The first thing they did was getting the main team up to rank 1 by wintrading with
Daeboss + Absorbalot = Mikkel
Skor + Mizzless = 2 accounts (Robin)
Mikkel and Robin own a few chars the rest where Gladiator boosts in order to get paid so many chars got pushed to Gladiator so i guess that was random people’s characters that were just buying arena boosts
Both teams wintraded to eachother, Mikkel and Robin played on them. With those 2 teams they also farmed up the mmr of the main team. I had a talk with deeds and hevan later on they sayed everything
[4:51:38 PM] Hevan: those 2 are wintrade botters
[4:51:42 PM] Hevan: they own allll those chars i think
[4:51:51 PM] Nozz: gosh
[4:51:57 PM] Nozz: and the one from r1?
[4:52:00 PM] Hevan: yes
[4:52:02 PM] Hevan: think so
[8:51:16 PM] Nozz: who is mikkel?
[8:51:33 PM] Deed: Mikkel = Daeboss
[8:51:40 PM] Nozz: rofl
[8:51:47 PM] Deed: MIkkel and Robin own a few chars
[8:51:48 PM] Deed: the rest
[8:51:52 PM] Deed: where Gladiator boosts
[8:51:55 PM] Deed: in order to get payed
[8:52:04 PM] Deed: so many chars got pushed to Gladiator
They also explain why did they passed the 3s team to the wintraders and why they needed to help him… as u can see from next chat.
<<< Came true either? Because you had set deals with Simontja, And simontja isnt someone that i would consider reliable at least for me personally
[12/1/2011 9:07:46 PM] Deed: this
[12/1/2011 9:07:48 PM] Deed: is absolutely lies
[12/1/2011 9:07:52 PM] Deed: cuz Simontja hates me
[12/1/2011 9:07:54 PM] Deed: and i hate him
[12/1/2011 9:08:01 PM] Deed: i told him i never wanted to help him with this shit
[12/1/2011 9:08:04 PM] Deed: as he abused me
[12/1/2011 9:08:05 PM] Deed: and Starcookie
[12/1/2011 9:08:08 PM] Deed: to get him r1
[12/1/2011 9:08:12 PM] Deed: or we would get DDOS’d forever he said.
Also this is where Robin confests that his actually into this.
[19:04:13] Robin: thats deeds crying
[19:05:21] Harald Sannum Dybdahl: du wintrader Robin
[19:13:07] Harald Sannum Dybdahl: likte den siste du linka Kjell
[19:13:12] Harald Sannum Dybdahl: smile on this face!
[20:24:23] Robin: harald jeg er baus.
[20:24:41] Harald Sannum Dybdahl: du er wintrader
[20:24:52] Harald Sannum Dybdahl: Maajty har et stort ønske om å få flama deg
[20:25:11] Robin: finnes ingenting
[20:25:14] Robin: på at jeg wintrader
[20:25:19] Robin: so goodluck
[20:25:25] Robin: till maajity
[20:25:38] Harald Sannum Dybdahl: men du wintrader fremdeles
[20:25:45] Harald Sannum Dybdahl: care om du blir banna, mer morsomt at du faktisk gidder å gjøre det :D
[20:26:04] Robin: gidder?
[20:27:25] Harald Sannum Dybdahl: Blokkert
[20:27:55] Robin: so much hate
He sayed “yeah well lets talk when i got 30-40k in my wallet for no work at all”
Meanwhile robin made an account on AJ and pm me, i never give any details about it but i guess he took a look on my profile, so he added me on skype and its actually telling me that’s is the hunter called êyr.
[11/29/2011 7:27:15 PM] Nozz: yo, i dont remember letting any skype info and its wierd, now what did you wanted to say?
[11/29/2011 7:31:38 PM] Robin: u left it on my AJ
[11/29/2011 7:31:55 PM] Robin: this is êyr
[11/29/2011 7:31:57 PM] Robin: the hunter
Also here is where deeds talks with robin asking him not to do 5s.
[Monday, November 28, 2011 3:09 AM] Deed:
<<< I dont want you to take action
and do 5s, Cuz i know you wont get banned 90% and i dont wanna mess with you cuz i already know from last season taht Mikkel knows how to abuse system ^^ + i really never done a single bad thing to anyone.
Everything is now clear for everyone that Robin and Mikkel where the one that wintraded on multi accounts in order to get r1 + some extra cash from boosting some randoms using a bot for easy wintrading. (Robin and Mikkel both close friends to Simontja) if that helped. After all of this one thing comes to mind right now……I though that season 9 was gonna be the worst ever, I guess I was wrong…
After a lot of drama towards the end of the season with simontja blackmailing starcookie’s team to invite him or he would ddos them, starcookie eventually remade the team and chucked simontja out, he then proceeded to farm up to the share rating. (Legitly for the majority, with some possible shady areas but after kicking simontja aka mr ddos i guess he deserves some credit) Skoe’s main team, “after all we’ve been through the opposite team actually wintraded (we think) to get to our rating and we got DDoS’d by simontja this season like 3 or 4 times we ended up sharing with starcookie’s team who was actually giving everything for his r1.”
Skoe was playing melee cleave here with geru/swack/mirlol/rudd. They sat on that rating for a while and planned to share with the other team from early on in the season since they were both playing a shit comb compared to the “wizard range legendary” comb who were queing at the time.
Bloodx minpojke and evleh got rank1 early on at 2805 rating, khuna’s rmp farmed up a boost team to 2805 to share then xandyn decided he wanted to fuck bloodx over so they queued some more on the last day and got farmed down and lost rank1, karma is a bitch huh. Also there was some shadyness with khuna and zunn getting ddos’d and they thought it was minpojke since he asked another french guy earlier that day what his ip started with, but everyone hates xandyn anyway so it’s hard to be sure who did it.
on vengeance ziqo got it in 5s with duskfall on x2 locks, ponzai on shaman, minpojke on druid, evleh & azshene on priests, kalimist on rogue playing moonkin/lock/mage/rsham/dpriest & RMPLS. They ended up sharing with some french local team coz ziqo had to leave the 27th for vacation and neither teams could be bothered fighting on alts since they had mains to ensure got rank1 on other bgs.
I AM STILL MISSING SOME BGS, IF YOU HAVE ANY ADDITIONAL INFO PLEASE PM ME ON SKYPE/POST IN THE COMMENTS!
