It's druid 100% now as FC, the mobility is insane, they dont take so much dmg, etc...

Guardian or Feral ? This will depend on the comp that you are playing, you must know that protection specs (guardian for example) get +50% dmg taken when taking a flag, while a non-prot spec (feral) will take only +20% dmg taken.
The symbiosis for the feral druid is much more interesting than for guardian too.

I can't give you a straight answer, but i would say in the overall that guardian is better imo if you're having him alone (Deepwind Gorge -> flag carrier but without the +50% dmg taken since its a cart, long time alone, so go guardian), (Silvershard mine as defender -> long time alone, should take guardian, as dps just go feral), (eye of the storm / gilneas / arathi -> defender = guardian imo), (twin peaks / warsong gulch -> this is where it will depend on your comp / gameplay)

Feral/Guardan #1 speed / damagereduction / disperse
rogue #2 instead of running with a fc you can take 2 rogues and have 1 rogue fc and it's pretty good if they know how to kite and use defensive
rdruid/monk #3
boomkin#4

you want bubble  from the paladin on defender maps, other than that it looks mostly right.

Disperse is only on Feral spec, Guardian gains Fear Ward.

Yeah but i don't know how its like in US Rbgs, but in EU we get all the time some big teamfights and we cant take a rogue whenever you have a decent rating/mmr because it will end on some long teamfights and even kiting they can get pretty much 2shotted when they dont have their trinket (and unable to speed with the stacks of the flag) even if the symbiosis is nice.

Would have said the same, btw all the time people were announcing Warlocks FCs coming, i still didnt see some (except once in random bgs, a warlock with 1.2M HPs)

To be honest the class is a bit of what would be called a speedcapping class, like druid but without all of the defensives, because in reality whatever the spec the class get so much damage that its not viable, i mean as mistweaver you can survive a bit, as windwalker you can speedcap really fast, as brewmaster i havent seen a single one since season 12 at 2.2mmr, i guess its absolutely not viable anymore since they putted the +50%dmg on prot FCs and +20% on non-prot FCs (and i think that this change was one of the most stupid ones made this expac)

Oooh okay, forgot about that, only problem is the cooldown : 5min...
And the paladin in this case gets Rebirth (http://www.wowhead.com/spell=113269#.) 10min cooldown, not sure it's working in this case in rbg since it is 10min cd.

Tho giving symbiosis as guardian to a warrior gives Spell Reflection to the Guardian (2min CD / 15rage cost / http://mop.wowhead.com/spell=113002), and it can be pretty useful vs druids+rogues ninjas. (warrior gains the stampeding shout breakingroot+speed)


But tbh, yes the bubble can be useful, but it is a really risky choice.
