My personal favorite seasons were 3, 7, and 8. The fact of the matter is that every season that has ever been or ever will be will have a top comp and will seem "broken" to the people not playing it. I feel that in s7 and 8, any match was winnable if you played correctly. I personally played turbo cleave with a druid which felt really good but had a huge weak spot to mages. We would win 90% of our games, but almost always lost to mages - even the bad ones because we had no magic dispel/freedom for roots. We countered double healer teams however, which allowed us to really climb in rating and even take 2 wins from the r1 team that was several hundred rating higher than us (I believe they were 2900 and we were around 2700).

I think a few major things left the game or started to dwindle when cata was released. Prior to cata the only team I ever remember being cc'd forever by was MLD, through cata and mop this was like the basis of any good comp. Look at s15 HLS. Making swaps was the most basic effective strategy for getting kills from s1-s8 in my opinion, but in mop especially and maybe even now it's almost punishing to make a swap because now you have a whole set of defensives to burn through again before the target can die. I haven't played much/consistently this season but I did try a little turbo cleave again on my shaman with a druid/mw/pally pre and post 10% nerf. I can definitively say that training one target is 99% of the time better than ever making a swap at any point in the game. Any decent comp at the moment will not die to a swap unless you have a leprachaun up your ass in magical christmas land and gib a healer in a stormbolt with pathetic enhance damage. I digress.

I don't feel like there is such a thing as a hard counter any more. Probably at high ratings this is untrue, but for the majoirty it just seems like a pve fest to me. The game doesn't feel organized at all. Simply play against any mage/druid team in the game. Didn't kill you this minute... lemme poly/clone a thousand times and try again in 59 seconds.

Some dps specs flat out suck for arena right now... destro... marks... ele. Some are way to strong such as fighting any arms warrior where you effectively have 80% life. With execute being a one shot kill you better not get close to dying or you're done.

I don't know, I think wow is just too far gone to be fixed at this point because they developers show half ass effort. Where is the logic is dr'ing fear with clone, but not poly with fear or poly with clone?

I don't know, no one ever does the boss anymore. The events give 500 rep points which would mean spending hours and hours in Ashran IF you win every event, which you don't. And even then... doing pve, running around with honorbuddy bots, isn't very fun.
What skirms? I'm talking about 2v2 arenas for conquest points. Capping a 12k pool seems pretty much impossible unless you cap for days and days.

Sounds to me like you just don't want to put any effort into gearing your character. Lemme know how that works out for you.

To be constructive; I just fully capped a monk in one week from all blues just by doing 2s with a warrior. We were queing at 1900 before I even had the epic weapon so it's pretty easy to pull off.. I capped my enhancement shaman by speccing resto with blue off pieces because most of the gear is usable by either spec. Just buy resto shit and sell it back. There is no point in keeping any gear until you have enough points/pieces from rbg to be full geared. I just rent gear every single time I play until I'm full geared as to not waste any points on something I could get from doing 3 RBG's a week.

As a mental health professional someone should seriously check to see if this guy is alive right now.
