Like I said in my 2nd post, when you wanted to kill a shaman you had to kill the tremor, MC to let dots roll, and so on. The catching out of position is definitely a good argument, but really, that shadowpriest only really had to unleash his pve rotation on a shaman on full hp, with a blanket silence up.
Defining "outplaying" is actually really hard, I don't have a real answer, but atleast to my eyes that shaman got mist of pandaria'd rather than outplayed...and as I said, the shadowpriest is not to blame, he did his job well, but he gets far too rewarded for just pumping out damage in a nicely timed switch where as the shaman gets far too punished for a questionable positioning. Good switches with CDs up on a healer HAVE to be really dangerous and need to cause problems, but I don't know how many times to say it, 100% hp, riptide up, no living bomb, just CYA in a blanket silence, how about no??
We can't see the whole match in the vod but bad positioning is usually referred to someone standing in the open, away from pillars, in front of his team (as a healer) rather than behind, taking too many risks to land a hex / hoj / cyclone or whatever.
Mostly a healer thing I guess. Atleast as a paladin when I would get focused by the enemy team, if I were able to get away managing to avoid using bubble and maybe just using sprint+wings/divine favor, that would be fun because I managed to play well and saved CDs for another burst etc, rather than "okay if he uses frost orb i need to trinket the deep and AM the blanket cs - if he uses icy veins and orb + images, i will just bubble". That's boring.
Don't tell me you don't have fun when you tranq shot NS off a druid/shaman? Outplaying people is entertaining, let's not deny that. And btw outplaying someone doesn't always mean he's bad, in that situation you managed to do a better job than X player in that strict aspect of the match, for example infact if you tranq shot NS it doesn't mean the druid is bad, you were just really good at predicting it and using tranq shot at the right time. However it's still a bit complicated to explain and opinions can easily differ as it depends on what expansion one has played the most.
that damage in a blanket silence was still overkill and shaman shouldnt have died
