Irubs agent here and this is what he has to say on the matter pending
"if you watch this vod Twitch/jahmilli go to 1:04:06 and put it in slow motion you will see the skillful things we do. Also listen to our skype call to hear benji ask me "hey man do you have stormbolt" thats the kinda set up thats needed to succeed, I'll have you know that in season 12 i was the highest triple warrior 3v3 team in the world i was also playing a 3s game once while pooks whispered me so theres that. I'm not gonna post here any more or respond to this thread cus no one here gets me. Also if you go to the food network and watch your dvr of last nights vod you'll see THE chef Bobby Flay directly say my name "I Rub these steaks together" thats no coincidence. I played with reckful once. I beat xaryu."
Anyone who plays RMD actually has no right to complain about anything in this game. It is by far the most OP and broken comp.
Anyone of the 3 classes in the comp have enough things to make the comp broken, but all 3 of them combined make it the most stupid shit ever.
-Best heals in the game atm (gensis, shroom, lots of healing output with little casting)
-Ability to Ironbark, Cenarion, and Displacer Beast while silenced (unfearable if youre not retarded)
-2 trinkets w/ Iceblock
-Dont need to say anything at this pont, you know the deal (ice lances for 50-80k, a frozen orb 45 sec CD, kiting ability, iceblocks, etc.)
-Ability to peel entire team completely with cheap shot / kidney / gouge
-Nerve strike: Hey did you get 1/4th cheap shotted? Ok, you are useless for the next 6 seconds. No cooldown by the way! (probably the most broken spell effect in the game currently)
-Ability to solo someone with their burst alone
-Amazing synergy with rogue and mage (tricks + prey on the weak = 25% more damage taken)
-The concept of an entire team starting out in stealth and getting the opener is fundamentally flawed in game design (the other team has to stand there and be opened on)
-Constant flow of offensive cooldowns from rogue and mage, something is always up, and when it is youre in trouble (shadow dance, frozen orb, icy veins, alter time, shadow blades, smoke bomb, subterfuge opener)
-Mage, which is normally able to be countered by heavy purging, has up to 6 buffs up at all times due to druid Hots and buffs, making it extremely hard to purge alter time or icy veins.
-Games will always last long vs RMD because of rogue peels, druid 2x trinket, and iceblock x2
-You cannot play defensive vs RMD, playing defensive vs RMD is a loss
Is shaman KFC good? Of course its good, one of the best comps. But RMD is absolutely retarded and in no way a more "skill" comp.
The goat actually does nothing to stop RMD damage, everyone complains about goat because jah does, if you play a mage, rogue, or rdruid you cannot complain about anything. I actually dont even give a fuck, remove goat, idc, it does nothing to stop RMD from forcing major defensives from hunter teams in the opener.
For the record, the same class with Nerve Strike has a permanent "goat debuff" on whoever hes on.

I'm not quite sure why people complain about RMD/WMD when KFC literally just wins by throwing out instant cc every 30 seconds and tunneling one target. if you honestly think that it requires more skill than those other comps or ANY comp in this game then you might just be an ignorant idiot.
Keep in mind this is the same guy who complains / bitches about whatever comp he loses to, while playing the most OP comps. I.E. Lost to me playing Ret / Hunter / Priest as RMD, and I Kid you not he complained about holy priests, while playing rdruid. LOL.
Hunters need to stay the way they are as long as mages are what they are. They are a necessary evil.
RMD currently takes as much skill as s6 tsg did - same exact playstyle, same exact pure mongoloid, short c d based pressure. Only now bladestorm is named frozen orb, hoj is called cheap shot and strangulate is called cs.
The goat is actually the law enforcement of arenas - it serves and protects us from the mayhem and retardness of RMD.
I don't think US is better than EU but the last 3 blizzcons the winners were from US and KR
Playing devil's advocate here but:
2011: Winners were Korean they deserved it
2012: Winners were Snutz Ven Kollektiv, but the team of Another, Cara, Zun had a significant handicap, since they all qualified on Cata and they played the tournament with MoP, forcing all 3 to change classes (since priests rets and dks were trash), while the US team was greatly favored by the patch (frost bomb demo)
2013: Again, they qualify playing a different patch, finals team has a shadow priest which went from good to trash leading to them getting greatly outcomped, on top of a wrong pick from Zun, picking a warrior which is by far the worst melee to pick vs lsd
Last true Blizzcon was on 2011 - you can't expect to have a real event when you invite teams and force them to play a completely different game every time (on top of US teams always getting heavily favored by those changes).
nothing against the OP or minpojke himself or anything, but it's funny how he "gets away with it" just cause he's minpojke. someone who behaves like a dick is a dick no matter what, regardless of the 1200 challenger or the 2700 blizzcon competitor.
not like he even had to offer his kidney or anything, just a small shoutout for a bunch of guys that boosted him for free. so ye, /slap
