I never went for glad because it's not fun getting counter-comped any time you reached a decent rating, so here I give you the opportunity to learn from my mistakes!1.)
Plan to reroll as the new OP class midway through S1 (or whenever people learn what will be OP) so you can have it fully geared going into S2. It's hard to find partners as a gimp class, 99% of the good people wanna do everything easymode (druid/warr or druid/lock for example).2.)
Your comp should be whatever the new version of druid/warr is at level 80.3.)
Make sure you're honor + mark capped before each season ends so you aren't at a gear disadvantage from the start.4.)
Don't hesitate to kick people or leave teams if A.
They're just BAD or B.
You both have completely different schedules and can't do enough games to learn your comp together5.)
Make sure you get points EVERY WEEK even if you just find a random 1400 2v2 for 300 points on monday night. Losing very close matches because people slightly outgear you sucks... reaching 2050 but being 100 points short of getting your damn shield also sucks sweaty goat ass 6.)
Ask the high-rated players of your class what mods they can't live without, if they're not a total douchebag they'll be happy to help you out.7.)
Learn to use lots of macros and key binds, ESPECIALLY focus macros so you can manage multiple targets without actually needing to switch. Anyone with a pet who didn't have a totem stomping macro made me LMAO.8.)
Look at your damn spell book and read what every spell does then think about how it applies to other classes you'll face. Druids who didn't use feral charge made me lol. Warlocks who didn't use Curse of Tongues made me ROFL.
Anyone who argues against re-rolling just to play an OP class with a cookie-cutter OP comp is either a moron or already plays one of the OP classes like druid, lock, etc.
. Sure, it's fun to play a class you like, and every class can potentially be played to 2200 and beyond, but in my opinion it's more fun to succeed while playing a class that's not necessarily your first choice rather than getting CONSTANTLY counter-comped with 0 chance of winning while playing your favorite class. Actually it's a great way to make yourself hate your favorite class forever
