If you think anything PvP or even WoW related is considered "relevant" then I have bad news for you.
people like you that have to bring up "old wow vs new wow" topic in every thread are so annoying.
It's all dependant on your team, mindset, and class. Skill is a small factor, especially with the current MMR exploitations.
A PERFECT example of team, mindset and class in action:
Reckful's fresh Druid that's under a week old is already 2400 in arena and it's no debate that he gets carried by his teammates. I don't meant this in a bad way; he's super undergeared (or at least was). Sometimes he forgets to throw out CC, heal, or purge Hex. But it's not because of his lack of skill, it's because of his lack of experience in handling the class. His damage is certainly low at times and he relies mainly on the class' burst and survivability. If Reckful didn't have strong connections he wouldn't be at that rating, and instead he'd have to start from the bottom like most people. Some people try super hard just to get 2400, but Reckful doesn't. He doesn't really care if he wins or loses (indicated by his 115-100 ratio) which is really cool.
tl;dr: You need to be chill about arenas, get lucky that season if it's your class' time, and know some super awesome people to play some games with you.
If I had reckful's teammates and a legion of fanboys giving me enough money to live a good life, I wouldn't care if I win or lose as well. But I don't - and almost no one does apart from him and a select few cases. So this is not a really good example. Knowing some "super awesome people" is also something that is getting increasingly hard - I have problems finding such people myself and I have been around for a while, let alone a player that just started.
It is very, very hard for a new player or even a duelist level player to break into the glad clique. There are two ways:
1) The easy way - you know someone from some other source outside wow that hooks you up with people in his clique. This is how many rival level players are promoted to gladiators over season - countless example
2) The hard way - play, play, play, play. Try new things, different tactics every game against the same team even if you win them. Experiment with bindings. Figure out dps rotations. Build up synergy with your partner eg I will fear that you sheep that etc. Be a better listener than a speaker. Ask people questions - out of the 100 cunts that will ignore your wispers, one (me) will reply and help. Watch videos (old videos from wotlk mostly - videos that defined how each class is played today). Communicate concisely and ahead of time eg I have no defensive cds BEFORE you need them. Let your partners know what you have available and when eg I got PoM sheep in 10. Be persistent and not a faggot; with only a handful of exceptions, most r1 players now used to be bad/mediocre like you - it was their determination to prove that they are not worthless nerds that pushed them to such greatness. Now they are simply nerds.
1) Suck some cock and make friends at high places (faggot)
2) Be a man and spam games. Find people to bond with (hard). Don't just play; play & think, analyze and plan. Don't be intimidated by players with more rating than you.
While i have no interest in defending the current joke state of BM, you realise that all you had to do for about 10 seasons out of 13 was "play with a Warlock", at least by your logic. I guess that was fine back then as far as you were concerned.
Take a look at some of the most commonly complained about things in the last few seasons. Off the top of my head: Resto Shaman cleansing/burst healing, Rogue control, too many silences/stuns, too much instant CC, Warrior one-shotting stuff, instant hungering cold, etc etc. None of that has really any influence on PVE. When Resto Shamans were OP in PVP for Cataclysm, they were also the quote-unquote worst PVE healer. And sure rogues could keep a player locked down almost indefinitely in seasons 9-11, but what advantage did that give them in PVE? Stuns don't work on bosses.
And then for the specs that would get absurdly high burst capabilities (warriors, mages) -- being able to "burst" something down in PVE is not very important as what really matters is your overall DPS, 99% of the time. Burst damage could have easily been tweaked in favor of sustain and nobody would have really cared aside from the pre-teens that wouldn't see as big of numbers and would take their angst to the forums.
Fast forward to MoP and you have an even HIGHER amount of CC and silences, and again -- these spells are very rarely even applicable in PVE, especially raids. Overall, PVEers don't really care if the Shadow Priest blanket silence is 5 seconds long or 3 seconds long. It's really only the PVPers that do. Now obviously there are some PVE things that DO fuck with PVP, such as raid gear, but saying PVE is the main reason why WoW PVP is imbalanced is to me extremely inaccurate.
It comes down to developer incompetence, ignorance, or apathy. Or all three.
So many overly critical posts in this and every other thread discussing changes. I love wow but of all the other games that I've played, Wow has, bar none, the worst community I've ever been a part of. Other games have whiners but overall the community is positive but when you come over to the wow community everyone just bashes each other and more specifically Blizzard. I've yet to figure it out but it's almost been the reason for a few of my hiatuses.
You can never expect Blizzard to take you seriously if you just bash them with the entirety of your post. Yes, changes need to happen. Yes, AJ has great ideas. But most AJ posters bash Blizzard and then end their post with, "Shit game, cy@." You can't expect to get anything accomplished with this attitude. It hasn't worked yet so why don't we try a different approach! Commend Blizzard for what they are doing correctly and then kindly and politely suggest changes you think would help the game.
Also, as already said, PvE is a part of the game. Consider ideas that would help arena and consider the PvE ramifications. Are they too great? If yes, consider an alternative.
Do you think they don't know your or this opinion? Of course he knows, he either just doesn't care or agree with it.
pretty sure they care, but it's either something what REALLY stops them from resetting the MMR (somehow they didn't do it at start of the season as well, why), or they just don't really know how bad the situation is in the brackets right now; the decision they've made makes them seriously stupid or just not aware of how the situation is (unless they have an inside problem resetting the mmr and that's how they want to cover it)
if he doesn't agree, his mum must've dropped him on his head when he was little.
I can tell that you have no idea what your talking about im not even going to reply to your indivdual points in your wall of text. I was in no way ranting (im actually having alot of fun playing rdruid at the moment) i was after some discussion.
Sup guys just going to go cat form in 3v3 and start nuking, damn resto druids so good.
Edit: You have also derailed from the topic, crying about disc and listing some of the druids abilities and having a personal attack at me is nothing to do with "is druid best for any comp"
