thread #2917051 about people playing defensive in 2v2
short version: i see all of you come on here and complain about this all the time, but you guys all get in arena and do the same shit. i sympathize with complaints about warriors sitting on dps or monks
locking down your dps the whole game existing but understand there is a difference between not allowing yourself to die to a guy that is pveing on you and turtling the entire game
also, if you are a fucking death knight or mage and you run in in unholy and pop all your cooldowns but get mad when you're peeled, understand that not everyone wants to die in the opener of a game to protect the honor of your 2v2 code
No one is saying you shouldn't peel or use a defensive. The thing that pisses everyone off is this situation: Warrior/healer vs warrior/healer, each warrior should just train the other healer and whoever kills first wins, but there is always that one warrior who will just sit on yours spamming hamstring and stuns the entire game - not even trying to win or do damage but to just stop his healer from being killed. Then you say, "Okay, I guess he wants warrior vs. warrior", so you swap to him and then all he does is pillar hump and run the entire game.
A surprising amount of medium rated, 1600-1900 teams do this shit constantly. Completely kills the bracket, even more so than it already is.
The worst part is, they always end up losing after 15 minutes, and they never had a chance to win in the first place. If people would just realize when they are outskilled in 2s, it would work much better.
