Ofc it is completely different. Back in the day, not only healers, all classes were diferent from each other, with their strengths and their weaknesses. Each healer was good for a different situation or complete garbage in another one, there is were the old dispel system fitted, where the differences were a common thing not only dispel wise, but in the rest of abilities.
Some healers were good for single target healing and shit for multiple targets, other healers were the oposite. Now all healers are "equally" good on both. Same goes for the dps classes. We have all received new abilities with the new expansions that gave us "that thing that other class had and i didnt".
For example (i will generalize, im sure there will be exceptions), all classes have a stun now, all classes have a snare remover now, all classes have an aoe healing ability now, all classes have a speed bust ability now... etc.

So, wanting to fit back in a distinguising mechanic into a game that doesnt work like that anymore... would make things... "chaotic"?
Exactly, hence it is required to break that homogenization were every healer is equally good. Starting with changing the dispel system will be the first step.

Whats the point changing back to the old dispel system right now with all the classes being completly different than back then?
I mean, i dont think the results would be even close to what the original poster even wanted to, would be a complete mess, imo.
Is it really though?

As I said before I agree we need to reintroduce some trash debuffs and dispel protection mechanics to make this work, but I don't think things are that different. When you think about it there might even be less magic cc in the game now than before, + under my suggestions the nature based healers do in fact keep a dispel only on a longer cd. Think of it as a pvp trinket for your teammates.

Old system relies in a completely different game , where there are trashbuffs etc , where making ms fall off mattered etc.Won't work in the current meta , no way.
This is a valid concern and I agree reintroducing both trahsbuffs and trashdebuffs would be healthy for the game as a whole and needed for the system mentioned in the OP to work.

Same for buffing UA and VT.

you realise i havent played in mop? and got glad/r1 every season of tbc/wotkl? and it was a genuine question whats wrong with current dispel system?

old dispel system was pretty boring and would never work in the current meta (i would like 2 dispel glyph to be base line tho for all healers)
There are multiple problems with the current system. I was gonna write a reply but I think Lolflay summed it up pretty well on page 1 & 2. Sorry for calling you a MoP hero if you aren't.

Well Shamans were fucking dogshit for first 2 months or so, so if made that post during that period, he was right. Later on they became retarded and Druids became fucking shit, but everyone and their mother at start and well into S9 played with Druids exclusively.
He posted it long after Shamans became boss, that was the entire joke.

the reason I laugh at your suggestion, and you in general, is because every time I read a post by you it's about buffing priests to the point of overlord status, especially when considering that priests are already very good and you just fit under the archetypal idiot who watches hydra 6 as fap material - with an unending hatred of shamans.

Then I log on AJ and you are asking for half the healers to not be able to dispel polymorph anymore and it's just... ugh. Get good at the game before calling other people out btw - it tends to help.
If you thought Priests were overlords in TBC/Wotlk then yea then that is the goal of my suggestions.

You keep on proving my point with your last sentence btw. Not sure why you think I have a hatred of Shamans.
