Not even remotely close.  You either didn't play in s5 or your memory is horrible.

I will admit Lock/shaman/x comps are definitely imbalanced especially once spirit link was introduced. which ultimately took all the fun out of playing a shaman, but as kelarm said dk/paladin you could be brain dead and still get rank 1..lock/shaman you only have to be partially brain dead lol

Every season there's OP stuff.  IMO lock/shaman isn't even a bad balance problem by blizzard standards.  Not even close to as bad beast cleave (regarding pure stupidity), wizard cleave (representation and stupidity), etc.

I bring this up too much, but he's probably only saying it because he's a hunter.  I hate the game too when my hard counters are the every-other-game-stupid-overpowered classes of patch.

yeah you guys definitely deserved that title more than veex  :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

ON TOPIC: Season 10 is completely stagnant. I realize that everything seems worse in the moment, but the problem with the current season isn't balance or cheating as it has been in previous seasons; it's just the fact that everybody only logs on because they have nothing better to do.
I've seen so many good players leave the game so far this season.

They were selling a title to prince of persia and he quit on them, so I would say he didn't even care and rls sucked then

S9 obviously the most unbalanced season, haven't played in s10 but it's probably just as shitty

Yes, season 5 contained the most glaring imbalance... DKs/Pallys. But OVERALL there is much more comp/countercomping going on in s9/10. And frustratingly, s10 is no more balanced than s9 was. My vote went to s10 for the worst season. Because OVERALL this is the most imbalanced the game has been, EVER (the arena doors open and you already know which comp is strongly favored to win, even if they're far worse players than you), and the way the ladder system works right now is completely broken. Also strongly contributing to making this the worst season ever is the fact that hardly anyone is playing anymore... including me. I've moved to LoL/sc2 :)

Also, all this QQ about lock/sham... yes it's a strong combo with lots of synergy, but it has a low skill floor and a high skill cap. You only have to be an average player to succeed with something like DK or warrior. However, playing a warlock is much more challenging, and it is fittingly rewarding. The people that are beating you as lock/sham/x have to have some amount of skill, whereas in s5, those DKs and pallys that were shitting on you were some of the scrubbiest players of all time.

This game doesn't have to be balanced to be fun, and it never had to. It's only the MMR system to blame with this expansions' seasons.

Ya lock shaman is clearly the problem not the mages paired up with them doing 80k shatters, or the ferals that are shitting on everyone. If lock/shaman was so dominant then you could add any class with them and be viable. Hmm I wonder why you don't see hunters or warriors with lock shaman, you know because its so fucking dominant.

Priest are better healers than shaman but why would a lock play with a a class that shares the same cc dr? People are just too fucking stupid to realize this.

Maybe because hunters and warriors both suck ass? ps warriors do pair up with lock-sham, its called WLS. there was a large number of rank 1 WLS's last season in case you didnt notice. only difference now is warrior got hit by the nerf bat quite hard so it isnt quite as strong anymore...

To even say that mages or ferals even compare to lock-sham strength is beyond retarded. Go look at the ladders, go look at the tuornament realm (EU AND US) standings, go look at who qualified in regionals. Guess what....7/8 for both EU AND US were lock-sham-x....get a clue please

Uhh.

Rogue Sap/Mage Sheep
Rogue Blind/Lock Fear
Rogue Blind/Priest Fear
DK Hungering/Mage Sheep (iirc)

Plenty of comps have teams that use overlapping CC DRs. Your point is ONLY valid when talking about MLS, which is by far the strongest comp in the game right now and doesn't bear repeating again as to why.

As for your Priests>Shamans comment.

Holy shit you're fucking stupid, the ladders on live are topped with people who played the first week and still had high ratings before people started using ferals for every fucking team. Theres no way to get high as RLS atm with all the MLS and shadowplays queueing. And the regionals...how stupid are you that was last patch except what the last week? And the people in the top 8 obviously werent going to change comps from something they've been playing for awhile. To say that FMP isnt a top comp is just retarded. And the whole lock shaman thing if its so good as people think then they could carry shitty classes to the top, guess what they can't, and I also ran WLS last season but my warrior quit before this season started.

Also fine if you nerf lock shaman then you have to have sheep and hex not share a DR. Hmm I wonder why mage/shaman isn't dominating oh wait its because sheep and hex share fucking dr you fucking idiot. If shamans were the best healers then why doesn't feral mage shaman pop up everywhere? Oh ya its because priest are better.

Bulrug you've always been a joke just keep not talking like you've been good at for the last few seasons.

RMP sucks and RLS sucks, just not enough fire power compared to other comps. The only one of those that even works is DK/Mage/Pally and I don't think that team would even bother to use HC.
