It worked several seasons in a row, actually.

You can do your best to try and illustrate to me how subtlety is just SO much more complicated to play but it's unlikely your argument will be very convincing.

Obviously to imply that Subtlety is literally that simple is incorrect, but that's the point I'm making. You can't just generalize the play style of a class simply because you don't like it. Combat is strong, but it is not absolutely dumping on Subtlety. There's no reason you can't play Subtlety, and thus, no reason to hate on combat.

I really don't think you know what you're talking about honestly.

I actually do not play combat so your request falls in deaf ears. Of course I've gone about tinkering with combat it but it does not provide me with the same kind of fun Sub does. My opinion stands unchanged despite this. So it seems you're the delusional one, just because a Rogue thinks it's okay for combat to be viable doesn't mean they are automatically a combat rogue. Thank you.

This is rather a huge exaggeration. "100-0". In what time frame? Technically, doesn't anyone who dies in an arena match go "100-0", just at varying amounts of time spent alive? It's not like a combat rogue walks up to you, and you die from 100% to 0%, in a literal OHKO. It takes a decent amount of time for a combat rogue to build up to that red buff, and in that time there is plenty that you can do. Like healing/getting healed, rooting or ccing the rogue to alleviate insight pressure, and a host of other things. Nobody just goes "100-0" in arena, if it does happen, it wasn't the combat rogues fault and their target must have been a sitting duck, with no gear.

Also, it isn't a single button. Revealing strike must be kept up, adrush must be used intelligently (and occasionally bflurry), eviscerate and slice and dice must be properly cycled to maximize damage over time. BoS or Shadowstep must be used to close distances intelligently so they aren't wasted. Then there is the entire rest of the rogue toolkit which doesn't automatically become unusable just because they are playing combat.

I'm sorry but you don't get anywhere in this argument by making ridiculous claims like "1 button" or "100-0", especially when they are far from the truth in pretty much every case in the game, rogues not withstanding.

What the fuck rofl

Honestly even though subtlety is also ridiculously strong, I'd much prefer that being overpowered than combat rogues.

At least sub is strong because it has so much control and allows for many set ups that will lead to kills, compared to combat rogues that just fizz around and pve all game long until they eventually get a red spree that wins the game. I can tell the difference between Pikaboo, Mir, etc. compared to other higher rated sub rogues. But the difference between nessper and all the other random combat fizzers? Pretty much nonexistent. Combat forces you to play like a fucking moron, and you can make 100 mistakes per second because as long as you're just spamming sinister strike and spamming 5p finishers to make the most out of ruthlessness, you can just get as many red sprees as possible to eventually win you the game.

TL;DR rather lose to something that has too much control/can set up too much (godcomp last season for example, which you could just compare to sub rogues now) vs random pve dampeners (MW dps sham x last season, which is just like combat rogues - pveing and basically only playing not to lose to win games). Win or lose, I don't have any fun vs combat rogues, especially just combat rogue/resto druid x.
