every class has a 10% - >100% CD which is so boring combined with the 5029826 million healer CDs and 10 different survival CDs every class has

you're right timing frost bomb with a shatter is way to difficult for most mages now a days to handle.

Yeah, they reduced talent trees and simplified everything but for some reason most classes still have like 4 bars of abilities, so this happens.

Yup, this is literally THE problem with MOP. I don't think it can even be fixed at this point, the arena game is just not fun.

Healers are basically unkillable in arena settings. I have a 10 minute video frapsd of myself and my mage friend trying to kill a resto druid 1v2 in nagrand after his partner died. For 20 minutes, going all out, we weren't able to kill him because displace beast is a 100% guaranteed get away. We only finally got a kill after some lucky crits. Now throw in two partners in 3s pealing for the druid and getting a kill just isn't possible.

Playing sp/mage/druid, our druid literally never dies. Bark skin+iron bark+displace beast+void shift+iceblocl+trinket, are you kidding me? You literally have to go threw all of these cooldowns + fully c/c us to get a kill on him.

I'm only speaking on behalf of druids because thats the healer I have the most experience in playing with/dealing with, but every healer other than priest and monk seems pretty unkillable (resto shamans are beasts too).

Chain cooldowns for DPS are retarded too, that's how BM hunters and Warriors are doing stupid unhealable damage.

Then lets not forget all the instant c/c, scatter shot (that you cant even SWD anymore) into trap, monk instant c/c, pom ring, BLOOD FEAR, warrior int. shout only on 1 min cd, blind (at least this one is a long cool down), psyfiend (what a retarded spell seriously), the plethora of paladin c/cs/stuns (instant stun/blinding light, castable repentance), instant cyclone from ferals. This game is just not fun anymore, you cant avoid c/c, and you you have to get through 15 different cooldowns for a kill opportunity (unless you're a bm hunter/warrior, then just keep on chain cds til something dies).

tldr; I'm having zero fun in arenas now, dunno about you guys.

I'm pretty sure things will speed up a bit once better gear starts rolling in. *crosses fingers*

NO, JUST NO.
Restoration shamans in season 11 According to
Felic:
And yeah they can survive for more than 30 seconds without casting. You have partners in 3v3 you know? SURPRISE

It's not as bad as S5 imo, I'd put it around s9, but slightly worse

It's far worse than anything I've ever experienced in this game. I'd take any of the imbalances from the past over this utter crap. DO NOT buy this expansion and give blizzard money if you haven't yet. They haven't earned it.

Once they fix bm and not every other team in the game is kfc, it should be fun.

Playing melee/caster/healer looks actually solid comp-wise. Pure melees have problemes connecting and pure casters cannot chase some of the classes effectively. Completely staying away from commenting certain classes, but it looks like cleaves have a harder time in MoP.
