Why are you so focused on twisting the stats to make your point? Only 3 hunters are over 2300 on BG9 (there are maybe 2-3 others that teamhop), yet you keep bringing up 2200-2400 as if that matters.
2300 isn't even that high, it's barely glad at this point (and that's with most of the real gladiators teamhopping every day). By the end of the season it won't be shit.
So what if Hunters are dominating 2200-2300? That's not glad. That means they're not dominating the top of the ladder, they're just falling back from where they were at 5.2 (all over the top).
BM needs to be nerfed, but arguing that Blizzard should balance around the 2200 bracket instead of the teams actually at the top is insanity. You sound like someone on the official WoW forums.
I'll say it again, BM should be nerfed (mostly because it has no "setup" time - run in and full damage first global), but the ladder shows that more than just BM is a problem (namely Wizards). And if your MMR isn't high enough to see for yourself, there's always streams. Hope this helps.
I am not sure how you brought the conversation to this, probably forgot the initial post lol.
Currently, the bracket you grind to get glad is the 2200-2400 bracket, rating inflation, long season etc is a different story. My point is , this bracket is so brutal because it is heavily populated with hunter teams, 18 out of 26 according to crossladder.com on bg9; in my bg, I had sessions where I queued into only hunter teams for 3 hours straight. My 2400 team can easily lose to any 2200 hunter team without making a mistake because like I said before, there are not enough tools and healing power in the game to deal with hunters at the moment.Note that this is not LK or TBC, queues are longer, you get 2200-2250-2300 etc teams non stop when you are 2400.And your response to this is: "You are twisting stats. You are arguing that Blizzard should balance the game around 2200 and if your mmr is not high enough, watch streams"
The most annoying thing is, hunter community is always out there,. plugging an MM mini conversation or saying stuff like, ooh duh yeah BM is broken but so are many other stuff, like wizards, the only difference is they require setup and BM doesn't. Like it's a small detail.
Once you pop unhealable damage without setup, the enemy team typically is busy running for their lives, then they get killed shortly after by the hunter team. You can't perform offensively because first of all, usually the game is over before most teams can build dmg, procs etc, second they pop their big cooldowns to stablize after the initial pressure, which just delays the game a bit.
