The Colosseum: Korgath speaks, pt III


Opasmea is the Night Elf Priest on the Korgath-based 3v3 team, OPA SPEAKS ONLY THE TRUTH. This 3v3 team is 3rd ranked on their server. Opasmea also servers on the 5v5 team RIMEZ HAS A BOAT IRL, which is ranked 7th on the Vengeance Battlegroup.
Who are your teammates right now? What's the general plan behind your composition? What challenges does your team have? How do you prefer to run your comp?

Opasmea: In 2v2, I tend to play with everyone from my Guild who needs help. I am usually with Nientonsoh, who is an amazing warlock. What's your opening strategy? What do you like to do as soon as the gate opens?

Opasmea: As a priest, no matter which bracket I'm playing in, I make sure Shield is up on my partners when the gate opens. I put Prayer of Mending on who I think will be opened on first. Then, I drink and make sure we are all in line of sight of our allies. Which mods do you use -- how have you customized your screen?

Opasmea: Nope, in Arena, all I use is Gladius and DR Watcher, to watch Diminishing Returns. I think that's a MUST for teams with many of the same CC types. How do you work out target designation? (Does someone call it out, or is everyone on their own to figure it out?)

Opasmea: We have the Main Dog call things out usually. However, it's best for your melee to call things out since he or she is the target who is not as mobile when it comes to switches. How do you schedule your playtime? Do you try and work during "good times to queue?" Is this different now than in previous seasons?

Opasmea: Nah, I queue every time I am on and every time I am able to get partners on. What's been the biggest change in your strategy between each bracket of ratings? (1500s, 1600s) Is there a big change for this season?

Opasmea: Our strategies are the same. Unless we play a bad player, then we go for them. What signals to you that you need to radically change strategy midmatch? (And how do you accomplish that change?)

Opasmea: Usually someone screams in Vent and calls out what to do. If approved, no response. If not, someone else will say what they think. Then your main leader gets his idea done. What's the key for your composition's strategy? Are there multiple tactics you can use?

Opasmea: Yes, our key is simple. We crowd control two targets in 3v3 or one target in 2v2. Then, we kill the non-controlled target. We make switches when they are possible and basically try to kill the first target you can, You hear a lot about clicking versus binding. Which skills do youstill click, which do you tend to bind?

Opasmea: I bind everything but for stuff with 5 min cooldown or more, like Shadowfiend for priests. I also click all buffs. What are you trying to improve?

Opasmea: Faster thinking.
