This is bullshit.  Yes, the game is in a much better state when the most powerful abilities are the ones that have counterplay.  It sounds great on paper, but it was executed in an absolutely laughable manner.  Powerful instant CC was removed, but instead of backing off on it across the board, it was really only removed from casters, and even at that, only removed from some casters.  

Aff locks are a perfect example of this.  We lost all of our utility, most of our instant-cast control options, and our iconic control spell is nerfed nearly to the point of uselessness.  Ele shamans are also useless low-damage crap turrets.  Mages, on the other hand, get ice nova (albeit at the expense of everything else, but it's still crazy strong).  Moonkins get all of their instant casts and utility too.  What did DKs lose?  Nothing.

Funnier still is the fact that not only did melee get to retain most of their immense, uncounterable lockdown, they also got to hang onto most/all of their CC breaks, and even gained some.  

The whole idea of having to set up and play around getting off your big damage/high impact abilities is real pretty to say, but was obviously totally fucking botched in this expansion, and I'm not even going to lie, you're a douche for even attempting to make it seem OK.  You have a handful of classes (all casters, mind you) that have to play 4 times better to get their abilities off, and then even if they pull it off, the reward is lower than some retard hunter flying around the map spamming his damage rotation and nonstop instant CC.

pretty much this.

my 2cents: casters have dominated the game for a while now (hunters included), but I think we're so used to a caster dominated metagame that when for the first time in years melee have a clear advantage we all lose our minds
