Chamcham Defeats Neuromatik In 1v1 (video)

Postby Twystyd » Sun Mar 06, 2005 4:11 am

A week back a thread was made about top PvP clans in wich BWC and a guild called Antipathy (along with others) were listed. A Paly named Neuromatik (Antipathy) challenged 'The Peoples Shaman' to a duel and Chamcham (BWC) accepted the terms. For those who have not seen the video here is Halls (Chamcham) 5 minutes of fame.


Tonight at 3:38am EST ChamCham, the People's Shaman, met Neuromatik in a 1v1 contest outside of Gadgetzan. Crowds gathered to watch this clash of titans and were left craving for more! The contest was outstanding and both parties represented their respective sides well, but in the end the Horde champion was the victor!!! - Ghrock

It seems the kitchen is where Rhuac is spending most of his time, maybe he is getting ready for Martha Stewarts new game.

Did you really need to bring out the servants at the end?

DAoC duels are you kidding me? There are very few 4-5 minute encounters in DAoC. 90% of this guilds makeup are people that were on top of the DAoC RvR scene at some point. I heard Beratuul once say "listening to Americans talk about beer is like listening to SuperHelix talk about having sex with a girl" they're clueless. Now don't get me wrong DAoC was a fun game back in the day but dueling never blew my hair back.

Mythic definitely designed that game for large scale battles. It took almost no timing (besides reactionaries), the CC makes the game slow as fuck, and its completely gear/level/ability based. DW could not defeat toped off toons at lower lvls played by chimps much less people in DAoC, like they seem to be doing on Bleeding Hollow. Skill is needed in DAoC but it is hard to compare WoW and DAoC duels. Most of DAoC RvR was predetermined before one of the 6 primary buttons a player mashed was ever pressed.

The people that play WoW understand what went on in that duel and how much involvement was required by both players. Both performed well although the Paly only got off a couple dozen spells. I thought the servants were a nice touch.

Ghrok said it well -

Good things come from fights like that.

1- Shows that Pally/Shammy are pretty well matched classes. Each side often bitches about one or the other being overpowered, this fight could have gone either way.

2- It's a good exercise for both sides to experience what the enemy's unique class is capable of in a very isolated environment. Sure PvP is fought by groups, but it was damn nice to see the specific powers used, timing, and tactics by both players.

Awesome vid.. definatly shows the clear balance between both sham/pally.

I hear alot of "no skill" talk when referring to WoW, and I personally disagree. This video proves my opinion beyond anything I can explain.

Like Law said, (paraphrasing) this isnt a bunch of IWIN button mashing, both showed skill and timing with thier character control.

Call me melodramatic, but DAOC folks out there just dont understand what this game truely yeilds.

Great video Jay, real nice kiting, I love how at the end you sent your personal army after him. That made me laugh.

Yea, Epic is a classic tune. Faith No Mores staple song as well. It's too bad they could never put together a full CD because some of their stuff is classic.

Hmmmm slow fight...

Shaman didn't use WF... which IMO would of made that fight 2x faster. A 1h weapon cuts your damage in half basically in a fight like that where you are constantly moving around. Since WoW is horrible about missing rounds of combat because someone is dancing around... you are better off with a 2hander which will hit for more damage when you do get in range to hit.

That shaman gave that paladin a whole bunch of chances to beat her, but still shaman did a good job to eat through the 9 life bars of the paladin without being 100% out of mana. I'd like to know what sort of damage the paladin was doing.
