also @Jaetch: You're totally right with the Mirror image instead of Frost Nova, it really seems to be one of the go to skills for the pvp wiz.
I have to try Paralysis then. It's so often overlooked because of the uselessness it was in standard PvE runs. Perhaps they tweaked the rate?
It's a ratings system based on:
PvP Dummy score answers to question:
Two heroes meet each other in arena, if they stand still and only DPS each other, without buffs, who would win?
Formula for PvP Dummy Score:
dps * ehp * K_DUMMY
All the values are unbuffed.
Hero1 kills Hero2 in ehp2/dps1 seconds.
Hero2 kills Hero1 in ehp1/dps2 seconds.
If ehp2/dps1 < ehp1/dps2, then ehp2*dps2 < ehp1*dps1.
It doesn't factor in life regeneration, though. But even then, you'd need thousands of HP per second to make it truly count.
Essentially, it means any wizard in the U.S. on average would lose to me if all we did was stand in front of each other and launch Magic Missiles at each other the entire time. Or in other words, the higher the PvP score, the longer you'd typically last 1v1 in a duel.
It's fairly accurate. I looked up the players who gave me a hard time and they all had scores higher than me on DiabloProgress.
