uh healing is way op for non healers? i got it just fine.
Here is the problem. This community will bitch and moan about op and broken mechanics in pvp, but they wont do anything to help resolve or prevent them. I brought up many concerns about the beta on the official forums and asked aj people to help out by posting. Nobody did. The only people who actually post there were pve people lol.
I'm legitimately curious what would make you say this.
I assume you've been around a fairly long time. Several expansions, at least.
And in those several expansions, during the expansion beta testing, have you ever known blizzard to listen to players' pvp feedback and actually change things based on their suggestions? I cannot think of a single time, although I did pass on MoP. It started with patch 3.0, which was the first and last time I ever beta tested an expansion or an expansion patch. Every player who so much as right clicked an opposing player during this testing was SCREAMING at blizzard on forums regarding how monumentally overpowered ret paladins were. This dragged on throughout pretty much the entire beta that I'm aware of. Patch 3.0 went live with literally no changes to ret, and the expansion shipped with, again, no changes to ret. And surprise surprise, ret went on to fucking wreck everyone for all of s5 (obviously overshadowed by the intense imbalance of DKs, but still) and most or all of s6 before it finally got nerfed.
The point is, PvPers have literally a fucking decade of evidence that suggests our feedback will be ignored, particularly when it comes to the release of a new expansion. All that screaming about ret and such? That was back when we had very little evidence to suggest our concerns would be completely ignored, so effort was made to get the message to blizzard. Now? Why the hell even bother, we all know this.
It's amusing that you bring up the bit about PvErs actively giving feedback. This just drives home the point even further. PvE feedback has historically been heeded by blizzard, changes are made, and content is generally released in a somewhat balanced, finely tuned state. This is the polar opposite of their approach to pvp content, which is always released in an unrecognizable mess to the point of hilarity.
