Just wanted to back you up on this, i think you are right that was my first reaction when i saw this.
I think commentators are the main factor to make a game understandable for viewers, and i think WoW is easier to understand than Starcraft 2 for new players with great commentators like Azael or Conrad.
Starcraft 2 commentators are just so good, they know the game almost as much as top players do and they are funny/dynamic so it makes it so much easier to understand what's happening.
I dno why GC answered that but i hope thats not cause he doesnt understand shit himself, would be sad.

Sloppy work here. Should probably be "but can we make it more fun for the players who are interested in arena? Absolutely, that would be great."
"Greg "Ghostcrawler" Street: That's a really tough decision. Players really recent it if you suddenly go through and do nerfs particularly."
It's "resent", not "recent".
There's tons more errors here and there. I can spot them and my English isn't even that good. Have someone proof read this.
"Voice from the off: We have time for one more question."
Voice from the off, haha.

They listen to idiots and bad players though. I happened to be playing a DK during wrath beta and I made a thread about gargoyle doing way too much damage after a buff(it was pretty much like you'd pop it and strangulate and someone would die, which is how it ended up on live too), the thread ended up like 40 pages long of people flaming me and saying it wasn't overpowered. I don't tell you this to say "i told you so" or anything, but it proves my point that Blizzard actually listens to these kinds of brain dead retards, and clearly is not taking proper feedback from top players.

Exactly. You guys can bring the right feedback if you want. If everyone just tries to avoid nerfs or get buffs it will not work.

You are right of course, however we are unfortunately in the minority here and the WoW forums have a LOT of bad players. While open letters and feedback threads have their place, they are very often drowned out by the mindless majority.
What I really like to see more of is YouTube videos from high level arena players, a video is an excellent medium to quickly address balance, ladder and general pvp scene concerns, and you have simply a name to back it up(that's all you need). Braindeadly seems to be the only one passionate enough to do this at the moment unfortunately. I really hope he continues to address the state of the game at 90, and that that would inspire other high level players to weigh in.
If you are a "name" in the PvP community then you can do a lot. I definitely think that players like Ming, Radikal, Serennia etc were very influential in balance changes back in BC and Wrath, even if indirectly through their blogging. Where has that gone??

This is like the dumbest thing I´ve ever read. DKs were overpowered because they(blizzard) listened to the community?
The problem here isnt that they listened to the "wrong" part of the community but that it takes Bizzard literally over a year to change a decision or to balance shit.
In every competetive game, lets take MOBAS for example, lets see how companys that care about esport handle this situation of sth being "broken"
-> 1 Champ/Hero whatever gets released
-> this champ/hero is obviously too strong based on data/player feedback etc
-> NEXT WEEK = HOTFIX
-->DONE (maybe some tweeks if it was too much or not enough of a nerf)
w/e my point is you try here to blame the community, not wanting their class to get nerfed etc, while its blizzard who dont give a shit about esport/arena/pvp and literally take over a year to "fix" a class. Or in fact lets take it real, they don't actually do anything and give us this "fuck that mentality", gear will fix it", next season will fix it, next addon will fix it"
This is how Blizzard thinks about PvP/Arena/E-sport in WOW:
Because of people like GC and this mentality, WoW will never have the chance to become a "big" esport title. Its fucking PvE everywhere.

I belive Most of the people complaining is probably just upset because they where expecting a more long interview and maybe some class specific questions, which is understandable considering of the short time you had.
On the matter of the better pvp feedback the main problem is us, we are not a very united community and most of the feedback here is heavily biased and sometimes very rude.

one of the things i wanted to know is what happened to the concept of the game being in a wounded state? at this moment you are either dead or topped off. I liked the concept of being wounded, but now burst healing is so crazy to counteract the burst damage (frost bomb lol???) game just feels gimmicky now. Whoever can burst the most and instant/endlessly cc the most.
