tell me where i'm wrong. when 5,3 comes and other classes are toned down and u get some buffs, how are u, as all the "top" locks are saying atm, still gonna be extremely dog shit with no dmg while even now (in this EXTREMELY BAD PATCH FOR LOCKS) there are 5 locks above 2,4k out of the 13 teams on misery, but i guess thats just random as fuck and doesn't mean anything amiright
A few points:
1. 5 Locks above 2.4k out of the top 13. Even if we grant that arena representation is a strong indicator of balance, (sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't) I don't think representation on one random BG and with some random cutoff rating is a good data point for anything. There is no argument: Warlock (especially Affliction) representation is low.
2. Just because some classes are being nerfed and we are getting buffs doesn't mean we will automatically be good next patch. The magnitude of the buffs matters! If we get +1% damage and Mages got -1% damage, would we be balanced next patch? Obviously not. The Warlocks on here are making judgements and predictions about the next arena season based on what we have now, extrapolating out with the buffs and nerfs that we see on the PTR. It's not that hard to understand.
3. The simpleminded way you present your arguments and make blanket statements with little to no evidence is getting really annoying. Please post more responsibly or don't post at all.
