I agree man, same with Ret Pallys, Shadow Priest, Enhancement Shamans, Feral Druids.
They were all free points in TBC and now we can actually compete and people are calling us overpowered?
Reality check, you're fucking retarded if you think Hunters are anything but overpowered and even more so if you think that the only reason everyone but Hunters thinks so is because "we're used to them sucking from TBC" or that the fact that Hunters weren't good in TBC (they were,) makes it ok for them to be in the current state they are in.
I haven't seen anyone make that argument. I don't think any class "deserves" to be X or Y because they were X or Y in the past.
If you think RMP is the only team that struggles with Hunters, you are absolutely wrong. That's like saying Shaman teams are immune to Fear because of Tremor totem. Stomp the totem, CC the healer, crit for 7k on virtually any class with a MS effect that has 100% uptime with the exception of a 25% chance for Rogues for a maximum of 30 seconds a match.
Who said anything about RMP being the only comp that struggles with hunters? So far that's twice in your post that you're attempting to put words in peoples mouths. I would work on some reading comprehension drills if I were you.
Before Levidian comes in with his classic reasoning of "people just don't know how to fight hunters." I'm sorry. This is an easy game. It only took people a month to figure out how to beat Shadow Priest teams. Do you really think there is something about your class that we haven't figured out in the past year that we're missing? "Just LoS." By that justification, wizard cleave is completely balanced because you can just LoS them. "Stand on top of the Hunter." There is one class in the game that can do this currently, and it is DKs (if Chains isn't being dispelled.)
Who said anything about LOS? You're 0-3 so far. Hunters have a complex relationship and it truthfully is something that even a lot of the gladiator caliber players still don't have a strong understanding of. There are times when you need to hug, when you need to LOS, and when you need to go offensive, etc. Most people have one mindset or the other and only do that one thing whether it's true to hug all game or los all game etc you'll have a lot lower chance of success if you approach a hunter from one dimension.
I could go on, but I'm not feeling well and the thought that someone actually thinks Hunters are anything close to balanced is making my head hurt.
We're just as balanced/imbalanced as many of the other classes in the game. I would argue our current design makes it so that how we scale at the extremes vs and as different setups is skewed but that's part of being a poison reliant class (a total fuck up by blizzard development IMO).
You also have to realize that we as hunters (wait for it mind about to be blown) FIGHT AGAINST OTHER HUNTERS IN THE ARENA. We know how much damage we do and take. We know that we have to adapt our play when fighting a hunter and utilize all the tools and knowledge we have. Against a beast cleave last night I had utilize different tactics to stay alive ranging from LOSing, to physically wing clipping him and standing on top of him to attempting to force defensive CDs through damage all during different times and different situations during the flow of the fight.
