What if hypothetically ring of frost simply casted in a ring around the mages feet like AOE fears do. I think the main point of RoF in its inception was to be used to protect the person inside or outside of it, trapping people in place or preventing access to areas. The idea that it would simply be used as in instant cast 8 second CC never dawned on blizz (as usual).

Pretty sure this was the last "instant cc" that needed to be nerfed.

Hello guys it's hard to get casts off (FOR ALL CASTERS)

Let's fix this by giving _only_ mages instant 19 sec cc chain

DF -> RoF -> imp CS -> Impact stun
(and if you're bad enough to not get a polymorph in somewhere in between for an extra 4-6 sec CC, well maybe we should make polymorph a instant cast, that's seems like the way to go).

great idea guys

No because the difference is when I play a comp i play it close to skill cap

if anyone needs to be banned, it's you. You do nothing but sit on AJ being a passive aggressive idiot that nobody likes, sorry you stink of washing up liquid.

Feel free to call me an idiot because I'm a hunter or some stupid ass remark but I've actually written all this down on paper

I actually made an appearance at DH2014 and I met up with people from twitch who were involved with the dota 2 / cs tournies that where there, I talked about the game from my perspective as a professional player and we actually shared a lot of opinions. All I'm saying is a lot of people will be VERY surprised about the future of this game in the esport world :)

I agree the games needs less instant cc and casters need to cast (be able to cast) but this is a really stupid change by itself. It's pretty damn hard to get casted polies off, you're delusional if you think we'll be getting them off very often with the way the game is now.

here's hoping we get a cast time reduction to poly, I'd be happy with the change then.

LOL i can't believe the amount of retards in this thread. ROF is stupid but one of the only things that make mages viable polymorph's are almost impossible to cast. If they make ROF a 1.5 sec cast there is no reason to use it in arenas with the coalesce time, it will be easily avoided.
But if they lift the coalesce time this spell will be hilarious.

Wow is this guy serious, I guess if a mage manages to get a 1.7 sec cast off by juking your teammates (in your case a lock that is possibly spamming COT) it must be really hard to shift that cast.

how are you going to say that when all you guys are doing is well......crying :lol:

of course we are going to say that when the whole thread is filled with mage tears just like any other time a nerf comes up on the PTR.

No mage in this thread can seriously say Ring of Frost is completely fine in it's current state and doesn't need redesigning. Dragging other classes abilities into the argument means squat, sure give HC a cast time, give Warlocks 16k crit fel flames too then?

I really love delusional people. Yes, deep to ring was unavoidable but it's a struggle to get a poly off on even horrible teams. This change will wipe mages out from the ladder completely. The only time we'll ever be able to get cc out next patch is deep into poly which will be stopped 90% of the time by people who aren't terrible. sheeping dps isn't even going to be an option since it comes off within the first second without anything to cover our control. GIVE ME BACK R1 FROSTBOLT!!!!

Your argument makes you look like an idiot.

Anyone who thinks going into a Deep->Ring is fair has something completely wrong with their heads.

Most classes have some instant unavoidable cc - Why do mages get so many? It's about time this nerf happened.

And make Frost strike have a 35 yard range!
