He was 3k early xpac when mages were awful, doesn't mean much to anyone what his rating was at the end. All this proves is he didn't camp all season and he didn't care enough to queue up to get a title he wouldn't wear anyway.
No fanboy-ism or whatever, just pointing out the obvious. Would think someone might do the same if the shoe was on the other foot..
That argument is invalid tho. See combat rogue 7 second kidney. Has been ingame for ages, suddenly everybody complained about it because it was absolutly broken.
Not really the same thing because hpal received one big buff (Exe sentence), and now, everything we got before is suddently overpowered, hpal godcomp is the most op comp in the game (Leaving the druid version "ok"? Haha), and i got suddently lots of wisp to play on a team (It's true, nobody wants to play with a hpal before, and now, everyone lick my balls to play a random mage/x/hpal team). If you revert this buff, nobody will ever take a hpal is his team, like... before 6.1, outside of few selective comps. (Which was nerfed - jungle - ).
Forbearance@30s is needed in the actual state of the game (Combat rogue and/or mage in 60% of team). Execution sentence buff was not. Easy to fix.
As i said, nobody complains about hpal before this buff.
(And i think every hpal wants to have the MoP gameplay back instead of having this one)
It's not really the issue tbh, too many cooldowns that are too strong.
Nobody complains about holy paladin before 6.1, we were "No thanks, need a rdruid", we still had no healing without wings, everything was still dispellable, wings was still a dumb CD. 30s Forbearance was/is strong, but not suddently OP. We still had saved by the skill before. The only real "thing" that change in 6.1 is that they add us the "Hey, do you want to be as dumb as rdruid playing godcomp, take that NS". And with the 2min trinket, it doesn't help.
This is the only thing that need a nerf, execution sentence. Nerf that, and holy paladin will become again the unattractive healer they were before, because without wings+execution sentence, we will not be able to "save" the divine shield against an RMD opener for example, and rotate CD after that.
Because outside of Execution Sentence and the new dispellable and ~15s cd 4-part gear, nothing change. So...
EDIT : Something funny about Forbearance : if a mage stole it, he will have a 30s Forbearance, but if a DK stole it and put it on a friend or himself, his forbearance will be 1min
so idk if you have noticed or not but for the last month or longer the front page of AJ has literally only been specific class questions or bitch threads about the game and for me that is not why i go on AJ.
i like the bigmoran posts, the xmog posts, the selfie posts, the WoW pvp video posts, the tourny posts, the glad mount posts, and other posts like that.
so i made this post, not a bitch post but something different for once.
please look at my beautiful graph and take note of which seasons have the big red arrow next to them.
they are all the first season of a new expansion, OP Dks, OP feral bleeds, OP warriors, and then what we currently have.
as the season for that expansion go on, the graph generally goes up, season 8 RMP i heard was good, BUT shadowmourne was bad, so it got a ok/fun rating. and season 11 was only OK because of PvE gear as well, a few exceptions.
so try to not focus on the bad but the good, funny moments in streams, tournys, transmogs, selfies, the important stuff because in a while im going to bet that this game will be good, but people wont admit it till the next expansion.
