This interview is interesting as GC also comments on PvP and adresses some of the issues that were discussed on the AJ boards.

MMO-Champion posted a sum-up of the PvP questions:
  • PvP will never be perfectly balanced, but it can be balanced enough to be fun and fair. The balance in Mists of Pandaria still has some tweaking to do before it is at that point.
  • Hybrids could see some PvP power going towards their off role damage or healing. It is okay for a DPS to throw out a few heals, but not okay if they are as good as a healer for their team.
  • It is possible that base resilience could be increased to compensate for the PvP Power increase on Conquest weapons, but they need more than a few days of observation before a decision can be made.
  • We may see some changes in the future to make things better for people who PvP on multiple characters, as far as earning Conquest Points goes.
  • Many of the changes in Patch 5.1 were to address issues of PvP balance, and most didn't have a big impact on PvE.

What the hell is the point of adding additional PvP power if you're just going to up resil? Yes, let's keep making the gear gap even bigger, it isn't hard enough to start mid season yet.

The point is that there are no better weapons for PvP than upgraded T2. In most previous seasons you had PvE gear be better for a lot of classes, This issue is now fixed and it is something I am very happy about.

He does not know that TFB only stacks to 3 now and he cannot explain how Power Shot works... He has a lot to keep track of, but he isn't too serious about PvP.

I liked how they updated things 'quick' now though, and that earns some respect.

Am I the only one who sees him like this on the interview pic...?

GC is a crock of shit.

This for one is his most recent fail, it's a wonder he hasn't been demoted or replaced as lead.
  • Still hasn't addressed Enhancement/Elemental Shaman's horrifying survivability problems (actually made it worse)
  • Rogues still have a godawful excuse for stealth at the moment, seeing as sneezing irl seems to break it
  • Mages are still dropping 200k/100k in AoE damage (respective targets).
  • Druids are still shape-shifting while silenced, which makes no sense in light of the totem modification
  • DK's survivability is akin to shit
  • Cooldown stacking hasn't even been touched in regards to PvP
  • Amount of CC needs toned the fuck down still
I could go on and on. He's a plague on anything fun and unique with PvP, and cares little for anything but his hidden-not-so-hidden agenda.

And the point about weapons is so people don't just get full raiders gear, sub-par PvP gear, and top charts with little effort. Not that you need effort in s12.

Enter the nightmare, this future does implore,
A techno city state, a prison nothing more.
Rounded up like cattle, you're forced in to the trains,
Nothing that you've ever known will bring you so much pain.
