Also, I "recently" started playing again. Would you mind elaborating what they did to gut prot FCs?
Basicly since mid s13, when you take the flag, you take +20% more dmg as non-tank spec (arms for example), and +50% more dmg as tank spec (protection ^^). Since that patch, arms was better due to having Die by the Sword, while druid guardian is still really good, druid feral too (can get bubble to defend, and dispersion to FC).

I can't find where the last hotfix has been said, but when you take the flag now, you take 50% more dmg, and you get owned really fast if you dont have any help, even under cooldowns. So basicly holypriest is really good again for voidshift / guardian on the flag carrier, since he can die with no stacks.
I think that is all, but you missed the speedcap seasons, the boomys/rdruids/guardians/ferals could speedcap as worgen, or even without this race, the mobility in travel form is crazy, you have much more tools to flag carry.
