    posted a message on Given your preferred gameplay at what MMR does the fun stop for you?

    I don't know if there is another way but I just know what rank I currently am at and typically have played at over the past year and use that as my baseline. I have never reached 8k mmr but have spent a fair bit of time between 6500 and 7500 mmr. I found that I had the most fun playing at the 5500-6000 mmr ranking compared to the 6001 and up rankings.

    For me I have noticed that my ideal MMR range is 5500-6000 MMR. I enjoy pushing up the tiers and trying for fun late game builds and once I hit 6k ot above the gameplay I enjoy drastically changes and becomes less fun. 

    What MMR does the game become unfun for you?

    posted a message on Is Xyrella the best hero now?

    I have not experienced a hero with a better win rate than her. I have over 1100 hours of play time with my top 5 heros all having over 100 wins and 2 having over 200 wins, all of the top five are over 50% win rates.  None of them have ever had the success and fun rate that Xyrelle has had for me. I really don't pay attention to actual wins/losses but I have never finished lower than 2nd with her and I am pretty sure its 10 games with her. I don't play her without murlocs as a tribe perhaps that is relevant but I think she may be the most fun and best hero.   What are your thoughts/experiences?

    Upon release everyone was playing quilboars, now that the nerfs have hit we are back to the usual gameplay and minimal quilboar builds, at least that has been my experience.

    posted a message on Strange difficulty spike

    I have noticed that lately it is a lot more likely to get smoked by a better build in the mid game. I don't think it has any relevance to mmr though. I think there are more and more people interested in the game mode and are watching streamers at higher ranks to improve their strategies and game play plus those of us who have been playing since the start and have gotten a better handle on how to properly build a winning warband.  

    As for your choice to drop down to a significantly lower mmr to be successful, imo that is always going to show positive results because of your experience compared to those at those ranks.  The following is just just my 2 cents. 

    I think the first question any of us should ask is just how important is increasing our rating to us. If you are playing purely to have a ton of fun and go for crazy late game builds on a consistent basis then playing at a lower rating level will probably be the most ideal route. If you want to have fun and maybe take a few shots at awesome late game builds then I would just play however and let the chips fall where they may.  If you want to climb to the higher ranks then I would suggest watching streamers and pay attention to what they buy, any reasons they provide is always useful and when they rank up with that specific hero and match up since every game varies alot in the early and mid game, knowing when to focus on the build vs when to push a level has always been my struggle and watching them gives me a bit of insight on when to do which.

    I fluctuate between 5400-6300 and play about 15-20 games a day. 181 first place and 800 top 4 in 510 hours of play so I am definitely on the lower end of average for performance. That said I generally have fun and don't mind quitting a game early when my build just sucks and doesn't give me any pretense of hope.

    posted a message on Should Blizz rework Murlocs or are they Ok?

    I agree with the sentiment that moving Brann to T6 would be a good start but I would like to see Primalfin Lookout moved to T4 and Toxfin moved to T5 at the same time.  Moving Primalfin down and Toxfin up would provide enough boost to keep murlocs competitive in the midgame and since Bagurgle and Toxfin are on T5 you won't be able to abuse the discover feature of the Primalfin too early plus without having an early Brann would keep it balanced. 

    I like the idea of having to decide on if I want to sell a buffed golden murloc or trying to keep it around until I can hit T6. It also makes deciding on hunting for Brann or a Megasaur a more difficult choice. I watch alot of streamers consistently skip the Toxfin simply because they can wait for a Brann then triple into megasaur spike. 

    I am a big fan of playing murlocs anytime they are available so I would prefer to see Brann stay at 5 and see Primalfin moved to 4 just because it would be even more broken and fun for me to play but that is a dream and nothing more.

    I found no struggle at all using divine shield poison murlocs so far all three times I have faced that build with them it has been an easy win.  Windfury is a big help after getting the shield and poison.
