Don't know what I'm looking for, all I saw was he got outplayed by pally by a pretty big margin.

Basicly TBC was terrible then. 3s ladders was plauged with Warrior/rogue, Warrior/enhance, Warrior/Ret(ret was not a good spec outside it tbh). Rogue/rogue/Restokin.... this is even before we had melee classes such as DK and monk xD!

Just wasted 10 min of my life trying to google and find that old website that showed class distribution + comp for gladiator ranges.  Prob got some virus just now.  Depressing to see all the old sites dead.

I give up.

because they see how dead live wow is and think that someone playing on a private server = someone not playing on live, therefore private servers are killing live wow and if all private servers get shut down, wow will have 10 million subscribers again

Bumping this point, I used to get this in gchat all the time during/before/after raids.  People playing live believe legacy servers and Beta are pulling people from live.

Actually you couldn't be more wrong. AT is a perfect example of that, because AT has been up for so long the 'meta' is very different from S8, teams play way differently than how it was back then.

So even if we went back to say TBC or WotLK for example, there is no guarantee what the actual meta would even be.

One of the things I was surprised about finding out recently was that the team that finished R1 in 3s on Blutdurst (biggest German BG in TBC) was a Enh/Lock/Druid team, I never even saw that comp in TBC since it was so underplayed.

You also have to remember that people were less likely to level new classes in the early days of WoW since they actually took time and effort to do, rather than now when you can just buy it or level to max level in like 2-3 days. That's one of the major reasons why TBC and (while it started happening in WotLK, especially with DKs and towards the end of the expansion) comp variety was much more of a thing. Now whenever I see anyone playing this game, I see them queue against the same 3 comps all day, the only thing that changes is like "Oh that Turbo cleave has s Monk instead of a Druid".

That was one of my glad comps in s4 and absurdly under the radar.  Lock/enh/rdruid.  Absolutely agree with you, give people tbc/wotlk back, with how much better people are that the game currently, and tons of different comps will emerge.

ret/dk/priest was top tier

Two questions:

1.  Could it consistently beat RLS?  If not for all of the triple dps RLS would have been an absolute plague.
2.  Was arena in a great state that that time?  (late cata).  Personally, I consider WoD and Cata as the worst pvp/arenas have been.
