What do you mean? It's not like you lost all of your control. You actually just have to start communicating and casting CC's in order to get that free Gladiator title each season. Is that not for the better?
You prefer a game where you don't give a fuck if the enemy healer is casting or not, you just straight up blanket him and global his partner and then call out "Fucking amazing guys, nice CC there". Quick, lets bring Gag Order back into the game!
Honestly I think we want the same, less instant CC, more skillful play (as in setting it up, not just taking it all for granted). But you need to realise blanket-anything is a dumb mechanic.
Because 1 broken mechanic does not make the other one less broken? Counterspell should do what it says, counter a spell that is being cast. Not be a button you can press and get a 100% silence off. There should be some thinking behind it.
I would like to see fake casting meaning something again. It does not matter if he fakes, you just go like "oh well, only 4 second blanket, will just follow it up with a Deep and take him from 100-0".
You feel me? And don't talk about bias when you're playing a Mage.
so in tbc, when mages had improved counterspell, fakecasting brought you a few seconds of casting time, but now in mop, when mages still have exactly the same improved counterspell, you cant tell the difference between good and shit mages anymore?
Don't take things out of context. Back then everyone fakecasted, now, nobody does it. It was really important for casters to hit that 8 second lockout in TBC, because people did not get globalled in 2 seconds. Now, nobody gives a fuck.
So when 2 dps go completely ham on your healer and you need to peel you wait until their healer casts so you can get undispelled CC off? gg.
Blanket interrupts are one of few CCs in this game which actually had an interesting playstyle. You can only ever do one thing with polymorph and that is polymorph people. With a blanket you can either use it as a filler in CC, use it to stop instant damage, use it to stop stuff like deathgrip or actually use it to fully lockout a healer. meh.
i think there is other stuff they could've done.
You must be able to think about something better you'd like to see in return.
