WoD is the exact same thing as MoP or maybe even worse
Oh well, he added Swifty NPC and Bajheera NPC, yeah nice change ...
He had to make arena cross realm and everything because the game came very unpopular in PvP/Arena
They also had to merge realms together because customers keep de-subbing ...
MoP and WoD are still far superior to Cataclysm - the "masterpiece" of Ghostcrawler. Xrealm arenas and removing teams was actually a really good chance - people can actually play more now and try different comps. It was very sad that people was sitting at their ratings from the first two weeks of the season - only the bottom of the ladder was active. There has been dead realms since TBC and again it was really good change to start the server merges.
This thread is just attention seeking bullshit with zero clue about anything. Holinka has made some mistakes, but he has done far better job than Ghostcrawler ever did.

People are outraged because Blizzard loudly claimed that they'll fix instant CC after the abomination that was apparantly MoP (wouldn't know, avoided it like the plague), only to then to the polar opposite by giving hunters one of the most broken instant CC's the game has ever known.
Just because you didn't see people complain about it doesn't mean there isn't anyone doing so.
Nor does it mean that a mechanic that didn't used to be broken, can't be broken now when the state of the game changes. Just look at combat rogues.
Balance of individual spells, classes, talents & glyphs is dependant of the state of the game as a whole. You can't say "this mechanic was fine in the past, so it should be fine now." If that were true, I could give you an endless list of abilities and talents which were fine in the past, but would be completely broken now.
The same is very much true for hunters.
I've stated this already multiple times, but I'll repeat it once more;
The issue with hunters is far bigger than the current issues with traps. Throughout all expansions, hunters are easily the most buffed class, simply because Blizzard doesn't seem to know what to do with them in PvP.
The big underlaying issue with hunters is the fact that there is no dedicated way to stopping your damage. This is not only a stupid mechanic, but at the same time it makes it incredibly difficult for your class to be balanced out (like really it does you more harm than it does you good). It would be far easier to give hunters their proper place if there was something to balance your abilities around like with other types of classes:
A melee class' abilities strenght can be justified by the fact that they have to be in melee range, so they can be kited which renders their spells useless.
A caster's spells' strenght can be balanced thanks to the fact that they have to stand still to cast a majority of their spells and that they can be locked out on the school, which renders them useless.
Now in come hunters: In the past you had a deadzone to balance out your spells & you had to stand still to cast.It was painfully clear back then that hunters were in dire need of some buffs as only truely amazing players could accomplish anything with the class. You had some of the limitations of both melee & casters, but neither of all. Deadzone was comparable to kiting a melee class & standing still to cast spells was the same as casters, but you had autoattack as well.
Flash forward to today, where hunters have all of the benefits and none of the downsides of neither melee nor casters. There simply isn't a dedicated way to stop your damage and that's a terrible designflaw. You can't be kited, you can't be interupted and line of sight affects you less than other classes since you can cast while moving.
And this needs to change. Badly.There have been plenty of suggestions I've read here or heard from friends in the past, most of them revolving around turning focus into a true "focus" meter rather than a watered down energy-bar. Make focus only regen when standing still and focus-regaining abiltiies only give focus while standing still, make hunter damage dependant of the amount of focus they have, etc...
However, I have very little doubt this will change in a patch, in fact I'm 100% sure it won't. Yet that won't stop me or others from trying to get this terrible design fixed with the next expansion & the only way we can do so is by being vocal about it. It was never fine, even if people weren't vocal about it.
Besides that, there are other issues with hunters people comment on as well, which also go back to the fact that Blizzard has made you the most buffed class over all expansions (because they have no clue what to do with hunters). They added so many tools & mechanics over the course of 10 years to your class, that they seem to have lost sight of all the stuff you have gotten. However I won't go into detail to that, since that's not what I want this post to be about.

7/8 games had resto druid on both teams.
He casted a total of 4 spells throughout 8 games 2 of them got interrupted (this isn't an exaggeration).
He pressed his bash key twice.

we all knew bailamos was a huge cheater already, wasn't he flying a month ago? isn't it just like making a thread about mysteryshots at this point?
and to be totally fair, let's examine your team:
how many of the people on your team did i catch wintrading in 5s (or 3s) in the last week of last season?
thread made by a ddoser, and how many of the people in your group just turn a blind eye to ddos everytime it happens?
you all cheat. i queue into you with 1900 pugs and if you aren't grip/knocking people off bugged areas in eye of the storm, you're doing it on ab, or you're mounting up with the saucer and dropping the orbs on kotmogu, or any other number of "acceptable exploits" - even against 1900 pugs.
weird that a ddoser makes a thread about a long-time respected player accusing him of cheating. some of us have been getting rank 1 since season 1, before you rating whoring rbg tryhards showed up willing to cheat to win at the drop of a hat
we need to address the more important questions here: does bailamos leave the house with that haircut? does bailamos ever leave his house? why are you guys playing rbgs on new year's eve?
and stop comin at talbadar, he's pure class as you can tell by his attitude about the world series of rbgs, and he's been right about everything he's posted here

Most intelligent person in this thread. Thank you

I don't think this is really ban-worthy though, is it scummy? Yeah but all I'm seeing right now is a pot meet kettle scenario.
No one was right in that situation. I don't claim to be in the right either. It was definitely fucked and I feel bad for it. It's my fault for trusting players to have a good game, everyone on both teams knew before hand that I didn't want to abuse exploits. I didn't expect my opponents to be relentlessly abusing grip knocks, so I caved and went back on my word. I was definitely at fault here no questions asked. That being said I regret not doing it earlier in the game.
For those of you that care. I don't give a shit about Datacus' feelings

Perspective of our team if anyone is interested.
1. The other team agrees not to use the exploit before the game started.
2. The other team's mage disconnects at a node, we didn't attack that node.
3. They say that they exploited because we were grip knocking their healers, however if you watch their pov in their starting room, they spend the entire preparation period discussing how to grip knock us.
A wise man once said nothing good happens after 2 am, so I don't think its reasonable to berate their team for twisting the rules when the game was played so late at night. I'm just holding out for the day that people finally respect each other in this community and get back to playing fair. As that regent lord guy mentioned people don't take rbgers seriously, and it's no ones fault but our own.
