Dying as a rogue is currently extremely punishing; you can lose hours of progress at high DZ ranks. It's simply not worth it, so it's not surprising to hardly see any rogue activity in the Dark Zone.

But if PvP is your thing, then I'd recommend just creating another character (yes, you can do that), and level that to 30 at your leisure. Then you can use your main character to ship excess high-level gear obtained from drops and crafting to your PVP character via your stash, and take them into the Dark Zone at DZ rank 1. Remember that items that require a certain DZ rank to purchase don't require you to be the same DZ rank to equip them.

This way, if you die, you won't lose any of that hard progress. You'll instead stay at the low levels with nothing to lose. And if you do kill a player and score yourself some great loot, you can always ship it back to your main character upon a successful extraction.

I love my G600. Got it when it first came out in the UK and I've never contemplated replacing it. It's great for MMOs, but I used it for everything.

When I went from a Razer Naga to a G600 I never looked back. It's simply better in every way, from hardware to software.


Soon after I replaced my Razer Blackwidow Ultimate keyboard with a Logitech G710+. Again, another fantastic purchase.

You're missing a ton of cards from the stream that were used in the mini-tournament.

Fixed with high quality images direct from Blizzard. Also sorted by rarity, followed by classes alphabetically.

Na actually, it's a misspelling that I thought originated from Heroes of Newerth slang.

Good - that would be a wise thing to do. It's still funny nonetheless.

I watched him drown that man - it was accompanied by maniacal laughter the entire time. Don't believe his lies.

Conceding does have its merits when you're in a competition environment. Back when I played Magic the Gathering, you conceded (scooped your cards) when you knew defeat was imminent. The primary reason for doing it isn't to save time, or to "rage quit" (you usually shake hands or say "well played" before doing so), but it's to deprive your opponent of information.


---


In a card game, knowledge if power. If I'm running a deck that has a super secret powerful combo, I'm not going to throw it out there just to let my opponent know that things might of been different if RNG was kinder to me. I don't want him to know that I have it - in fact I don't want him to know at all what I'm running in my decks. This is more important for multiple match series (like finals), where you're going against the same opponent twice.


---


Saying that, I can see how it can be lackluster for the spectators, but it really is approached more of a tactic than having a paddy because things didn't go your way. But if I'm staring down a Hunter at 2 HP, and I have nothing in my cards to either kill him or heal, I'm not going to spill my cards out for him to see, only for him to push his hero power to seal the match.

Well, you would say that, Mr. Concedes-a-lot.

MOBAs are worse than MMOs for the competitive genre. It really is dog eat dog out there.

The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director's Cut review snippet Is The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director's Cut grindy?
Not at all. Progression in the game is natural and rewarding - it holds your hand all the way through the story. Going out of your way to complete side-quests can over-level you though, making the combat a bit trivial. Nothing that can't be fixed by changing the difficulty though.

Path of Exile review snippet How bleak is Path of Exile?
Whatever character/class you decide to play in Path of Exile has usually been exiled for the wrong reasons. Coupled with the fact that most die on the island, usually by the many horrors lie within, I'd say it's pretty damn bleak.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor review snippet
It wasn't until the very last few story missions. I think it was because I held the game to such high standards, that when the last couple of missions were "press X to win", I was speechless. I couldn't believe how quickly my enjoyment was soured by such a disappointing, half-assed ending. What happened!?
