  1. F11 when on the server.
  2. Yes, you'll basically look like my BM does, which is level 45 Hongmoon 3 from back before they increased the cap to 50. I can't increase my hongmoon levels again until I'm at 50, so in your case it'll freeze your hongmoon levels until you reach the new cap. It's basically to just make it more obvious when there's a "difficulty" jump in content and provides an opportunity to more or less reset everyone back to the same level of gear so that new players aren't hampering the veterans as much and the veterans don't have too great of a gap over newcomers.
  3. Step 1: Learn what all other class' counter/resist/i-frames look like and don't attack into them. Step 2: Don't commit to any barrage of attacks until you know their cc breaks are used up. Step 3: Slam face on RMB and F while in stealth. Step 4: ???? Step 5: Be ranked. But seriously, just getting into stealth and then backing off your opponent until you see them spend all their aoes and focus into the air will be enough to hit gold. Recognizing what counters look like and not attacking into them is like 100% the most important thing. Since not only does it cancel your attack, but it generally results in the opponent gaining large amounts of focus back as well as either opening you up and/or giving them a powerful buff/minor heal. Just not letting them have that can 100% turn the game around for you, and it's important that you learn to abuse your own decoy to keep the pressure high. It's not completely unavoidable that you'll attack into a counter (without gimping yourself), but you can at least force your opponent to be more cautious about when they throw it up. Beyond that any advice is going to need to be focused towards specific scenarios that you're asking about.
  4. It's only a minor inconvenience in silver, far from impossible... I mean I could list things like N3ro did but have some basic misunderstandings of the class and I don't know what those are :\ And I don't mean that as a major insult, I mean, plenty of people playing the class don't understand. I beat a hongmoon 10 sin in a mirror matchup on that character too. As for running into bots...I haven't noticed any yet, but I've only played a few matches since my return /shrug I've run into some really, really bad players though...maybe those are the bots now? I dunno...the bots I faced a year ago were a lot more active.
  5. Blade Master can beat every last one of the classes...even at high levels. The only "problem" is that the skill floor for blade masters is significantly higher than any other class.
  6. Most Tier 5 skills can not be unlocked yet.
  7. It's funny because BMs have been in the top 10 multiple times. The top 10 list is extremely volatile. Concern yourself more with the top 100.
  8. The biggest thing is to just simply not die >.>
  9. What do you want me to say? The guy that won the first tournament was ranked 16th on the overall leaderboards. We have most the tools we need to win right now. The upcoming hongmoon skills will help improve things, but they aren't essential.
  10. lol a 5 second cooldown on a must be insane.
  11. Sanctum is the when they put the gold chains on the ground around them(45 second cooldown, protects from stun/daze/knockdown and reduces damage taken by 20%). Bastion is when the papers are floating around them(36 second cooldown, protects from the next 5 hits for 5 seconds, like the blade dancer thing).
  12. A lot of warlock attacks pierce parry but not block. You also can't really do anything to them while Sanctum or Bastion are up.
  13. Yes rating has become inflated. I'd say by about 200-300 points...if not more.
  14. Few things... I'm a top 200 BM, and I feel helpless with my pve spec. It's just how it is(I've killed people with it, but that was 100% their problem). Our pvp spec and pve specs are wildly different. You'll need time to learn how to play your pvp spec too. World pvp is also vastly different from arena pvp. I can drop someone with half my combo in open world...meanwhile I can't kill someone with the full combo(no hongmoon skill) in arena. The way a bm plays in pvp is revolved around their giant burst, it's not about chip damage. Though you can try the Divebomb chip build, but I'd recommend you read through the 75 page discussion a few threads below about why you shouldn't really do that. Also right now with how BM is balanced with the other classes, you need to know the most about your opponents over any other class. If you can't recite their abilities by name, don't expect to get very far.
  15. You'll learn the animations. And you can react to being cc'd, the biggest problem for myself was just getting used to hitting f. But like I said, half a second is slow...the game is probably looking for about twice as fast as that.
