2's titles back = good news regardless, especially when priests are toned down severely.

However, 2v2 discussion is something I'd like to promote.
There's A LOT of people who simply don't have the motivation/will/time/partners/whatever to commit to 3s. It is a very, very complex bracket, and I'm not talking about skill ceiling or learning curve (<- these things: infinite discussions, please don't follow up). I'm talking about just the sheer amount of knowledge, mechanics, techniques and setup required even for moderate success, thrown on top of a very fast and unforgiving dynamic (relative to everything else in WoW), along with communication and synergy with two other people, which means more responsibility for the individual. Of course, those two other people need to have a similar sleep/raid schedule as yours, and the specs you play will have a huge impact on effort/success, which will change every patch.
Success in 3s takes commitment even from veteran players. Remember people used to complain about "arena elitism" and high rated player circlejerk (probably still do)? A negative phenomenon on its own, but it has very specific reasons to exist (apart from the obvious social reasons): too many things have to "click" for a successful 3s team to exist. I intentionally don't define "success" because it's relative, but the concept is the same: people are lazy, which is natural, they want to jump straight to fun, not go through sorting out stuff they've already sorted before. It makes sense.
As a result, we have tons of nerds and cool kids who idle in duel zones without ever dueling, teamless, ignoring all whispers, quietly plotting how to get max rating with min effort.
And then we have 2s, where all of this is simplified or gone completely. Here, you can actually just pew pew for fun, not just because of the logistics but also because of the pace and less responsibility (just you and your bro). 3s are serious business in comparison to 2s. I mean, if we ignore balance issues, it's completely fair to say that it's much easier to have fun in 2s than it is in 3s, AND it's easier to learn the game in 2s as a bonus.
But maybe titles isn't the right solution. 3v3 should remain the serious business bracket, putting the same rewards elsewhere will devalue 3v3. Titles aren't even a good reward for 2v2, I think the reward should be something much more instant. Gold, for example. 2v2 gameplay should be looked at as well, it doesn't need solid balancing, it just needs a few small adjustments to make dps/heal vs dps/heal bearable, and some specs toolbox to shrink slightly (disable/tax abilities in zones? can't be hard).

He said it would be really good for the competition in this game, and a lot of people seemed to agree.
So maybe one day you'll see titles in 2's;
Definitely not next season rofl rofl
