Damage is good, self healing/survivability is non-existent. You're screwed without a healer behind you.

they could always do this, they were just too lazy to actually do it and instead blamed it on pveers complaining about changes

Possibly but they always had the belief that it was confusing if everything worked differently in pvp to pve. Given the templates they're completely 180'd on that which adds a little hope they'll happily adjust pvp shit a lot faster. If everything has already got different values for pvp there's no excuse not to tweak outliers.

It's pretty messed up atm.
The plus side the individual templates finally mean they can just tweak damage and healing for spec without a backlash from the pve peeps.
On the downside some of the new mechanics are mindbogglingly stupid... We have everything from 20 sec long aura masteries when you get locked out/ 2 schools of healing for disc (shadow mend)/ Vengeance sigils (which is essentially fear trap and a silence trap)/ Massive CD stacking still.
Largely though the burst and numbers for melee are so out of whack it's just a derp fest.

The pve/pvp split though is the best move they've done for a number of years, just hope they're not against completely changing some of the pvp talents post release.

So, apart from arming ourselves up with patience, is there anything else we can do to prevent people like this playing this game?

In game atm, unless your streaming all your games and sending super detailed hack reports with video evidence via email then no. The report function is nearly pointless and as far as I'm aware blizz isn't tracking reaction times in pvp.

As a game though, they wanted addon creators so opened up a lot of info to the players which now gets abused. It's why sc2 had map hacks (replay system) and why league won't introduce replays.
Then their weak ass stance on it all was the final nail, 72 hour ban for cheating? Entire thing was a fucking joke, people have been getting away with it for years and it's so ingrained into them by now nothing short of finding a way to perma ban every account they open will stop them doing it. Then when they do find someone who's been dumb enough to get caught what? 4 times? with months if not years between each wave they can still keep their bnet account and half the shit they value.

Their stance on Overwatch is the right one if they follow through. No chances, just perma ban anyone caught from the beginning. WoW's pretty fucked though, you just accept that you'll run into people cheating (with surprising frequency) and if it pisses you off too much then the games not worth your time anymore.

Whompin explained it better but in short:

Gross was partnered with twitch. Slander/defamation of character like that over such a media not only opens up himself to being sued but also twitch as a company. Who ultimately has a responsibility to the content that goes out.
If they'd done nothing and he'd continued throwing out random accusations eventually getting himself in trouble you can be damn sure with the resulting coverage it got people would be asking why the hell twitch didn't step in and stop it.

Also the whole twitter issue, if your affiliated with a company (sponsored/work for them etc) and you go and say some stupidly hateful/racist etc shit ANYWHERE they have the right to end that relationship. It DOES reflect badly on their image if they partner with morons.
