We're not going to go into details on why we did this, for dannycareys sake.

After playing a year and a half with him this was not an easy decision that we made on the spot. The decision had nothing to do with his skill or ability to play his alts, and that's all the detail I'm going to go into. We're keeping this drama out of the spotlight for his own sake and aparently he doesn't realize that.
It is good to be noble, sensitive and protective of your old team mate. This stand would make more sense if you guys could bring yourselves to give him a warning prior to the replacement in the first place so that he could find a new team.
The problem with Mop is, they made spec defining abilities available to all specs of a class. Stuff like arms warriors running shockwave, aoe silence; dps shamans and druids having NS, frost mages having pom, affliction locks having shadowfury and so on.There was a reason why those abilities were made available at the mid / low parts of a spec's talent tree, they were simply too powerful. The new talent system was designed in order to make the game more enjoyable for PVEers with complete disregard to PVP. Another bad decision was to make dispel an 8sec cd.
Cata had its own problems but I believe those could be saved via nerfing pve gear in arena or just adjusting numbers. They never made the effort, but it had the potential to be a good expansion, like TBC and WOTLK.
What I am trying to say is, MoP is by far the worst expansion because it had too many PVP design flaws, as opposed to other expansions where most problematic things could just be fixed through some numeric adjustments.
at least druids will be good (hopefully) in the first season one time in their lives instead of unplayable

Everyone knows they're OP as is but I hope they don't overnerf. I agree, the first season is always awful, and druids are always borderline unviable in it. Correlation? I think so.
You are right, starting season of the wrath, druids were not overpowered.
Also, let's not forget that druids had a bad season in season 11. (most people forgot about this because it hasn't been mentioned by druids for the last 3 days)
I really hope that a class that historically has been neglected so much can finally have a good start and will not have to deal with the downsides of being underpowered by design, though it will be too easy due to higher skilled player base of the class who already succeeded at s9 with bunch of comps or at s12 with god comp, even though druids were unplayable back then.
