What is intriguing about Veexs words is that it implies that a lot of people have been practicing. While he has been, both on TR and Live, many other teams have been on vacation for the summer. Those teams, who decided to travel, relax and do things with family and friends may have been caught with their pants down with this decision, since it was widely assumed that it would be on the current patch and not the previous about runescape gold.
The talents, glyphs, gems on both Live and TR are completely different and it will make training for runescape right before Blizzcon difficult. Ocelote confirmed this in some of the concerns he raised. "How can we train till Blizzcon now about runescape gold? Teams like our one were on vacation this month, and we would start training hard since runescape come out. How can we train with the other useless patch?" When other teams attempted to contact Blizzard in regards to the issue they were given the cold shoulder and told that their opinions did not matter. No one knows if this implies nepotism on Blizzard part, but some do find it a bit strange that only one out of eight teams would be contacted by e-mail in regards to the option of playing on either patch and that the one team happened to be a cleave about runescape gold.
Inflame suggested that they use the same specs, glyphs or gems as they used on runescape perhaps but the team realizes that practicing on the new patch when they are comp is so much stronger will make them ill prepared to go back to facing cleaves with their full strength at Blizzcon. However, other teams have similar issues. At this point, everyone going to be used to runescape by the time the tournament gets here. Though, the four cleave teams will undoubtedly have the advantage of practicing on a patch where they are no longer as dominant.
Veexs final words on the subject: "it would be stupid to have a tournament decided by which comp could persist thru 3 patches the best, unless you are rmp lololol."
