Don't take things out of context. Back then everyone fakecasted, now, nobody does it. It was really important for casters to hit that 8 second lockout in TBC, because people did not get globalled in 2 seconds. Now, nobody gives a fuck.
You see my point?
well then you cant take things out of context either, in tbc casters actually had to cast to heal. the main reason mages started having to use counterspell as a blanket is a. because no1 casts anything anymore so saving counterspell for 40+ seconds just to land an interrupt that is only 2 seconds longer then a blanket is pointless, and b. because cc on something that isnt the healer is completely useless unless you can also blanket the healer at the same time. i promise you the majority of mages do not enjoy having to blanket counterspell to just get a sheep to stick for 4 seconds on a dps but that is the direction the game has moved in.
i see an incredible about of bias against blanket silences from holy paladins in particular, most likely because the only way wizardcleaves can get kills on holypalas now involves a blanket silence after a deep every 30 seconds. all this change does is continue to push mages and warlocks out of arenas, sp ele shaman resto druid/holypala will be the new god comp wizardcleave and melee cleave / kfc will reign supreme, but they both work really well with a holy pala so i can see why you wouldnt give a fuck about the game moving in a less chain cc more tunnel spam retarded damage whoever pops all cooldowns first and crits the most wins direction
