Hi guys just some more annoying questions:
1. Does Druid or shaman work better in this comp?
2. Which rogue spec works best in this comp? (I'm currently playing combat)
3. Is this comp any good? What are the strengths/weaknesses?
4. The main comp we struggle against is turbo, any tips?
As always thanks in advance
1.) Druid is a more offensive healer and you can play more aggressive (pushed in) with druid healing. A shaman is a more defensive or passive healer but they supply mastery buff which is in turn a massive increase in damage for your team compared to having a druid healer. Each has their advantages
2.) All rogue specs work to an extent with this comp but the higher damage specs (mutilate/combat) work best.
3.) Rogue/Lock works but has some trouble verses double melee as you already learned. A strength is that you can pretty much swat down any caster cleave with ease.
4.) Turbo is a tough matchup I would suggest targeting the healer of the turbo with a step kidney into a coil perhaps, very unorthodox but it works wonders. This matchup can be annoying as the rogue because of the lack of pressure you get on the DPS classes of warrior and enhance. Minimize globals wasted on the DPS and target the healer as often as you can for optimal games.

Just out of curiosity, why do so many US rogues play sub? Is it because Pikaboo plays it and is really good as it and a lot of people fanboy him? - I don't want to sound rude or anything but thats the impression I get.
Most US rogues attach some sort of meaning or dignity to the spec they play. Getting high rated as sub has a much higher degree of respect involved (for whatever reason) compared to getting that same rating as combat or mutilate.
I know from experience a lot of US players will shame a rogue for playing combat or mutilate. For example you get 2800 as sub people whisper you impressed and inspired to play rogue when if you get 2800 as combat or mutilate people will make fun of you as a FOTM, idiot, mongoloid rogue.
