ps comparing spamming fear to spamming polymorph is stupid, it's not a valid comparison

polymorph breaks on damage, heals the target, and if you have the glyph, wipes dots

realistically, if you dispel a polymorph and then you sit the next two, i spend 4.5 seconds casting polymorph and you spend 6 seconds sitting in it, and while you're in it, i concede that i can't attack you and your health goes up to 100%

fear, sure, whatever, kind of retarded that in the current meta it's always best just to be spamming fear on everything because everyone is still a valid kill target even while getting feared and you're just disabling any member of their team (which is always good), but even that is a compensation for the heavy saturation of shamans on the ladder (between all their specs they account for more games than any other class at high ratings) and the over availability of tremor (literally every shaman can and does take call of the ancients)

most of the time people are training me anyway or a shaman/warlock stops me from ever casting two spells consecutively by pressing one of 5 million buttons, there just aren't that many scenarios where i find myself spamming polymorph without cross cc

i don't understand this argument

mage isn't hard to play anymore, but the class actually does something

as a hunter, everything you do is just a matter of you using your abilities. you don't have to bait any interrupts or create space to cast, you just fucking hit wyvern sting, trap, silencing shot, scatter. none of them even require a proc, you just PRESS them and the other team gets CC'd

i used to satirically complain about ice lance just being an instant cast, but i'm realizing that every hunter who got high rating in MoP and doesn't realize it's their class can't understand any subtlety

EVERY ability you use as a hunter nobody can stop. presumably, someone COULD eat a trap, but you have complete control of that as well just by pressing instant abilities.

there's no metagame where you're baiting interrupts, then communicating an opportunity to your partners that enables a CC within a small window

there's no building damage by getting casts off ahead of time for icicles, orbs, etc.

there really isn't even proc-based damage built around your own doing (as hunter, you basically just get a random proc that you shoot instantly vs. being aware of fingers of frost and holding them long enough to get a deep, then create more using another ability so they don't cannibalize the old ones, etc.)

there's just attacking. instant attacking, which hunters do a lot of, all game, and there's CC, which everyone basically has to watch the hunter do and play around

melee classes complain they can't stop a mage's damage. it's truer than it was in any other expansion. it's more difficult to stop, but you can certainly greatly inhibit a mage's ability to do damage by attacking them. i promise.

you literally CANNOT stop a hunter's damage without stunning them. you can't interrupt their CC, all you can do is MAYBE eat a trap (but this, too, is out of your control)

there are two major problems with the metagame of mists of pandaria:

the biggest one is a defensive one, and it's shamans due to tremor totem and not having any abilities (there's never a reason for a resto shaman to leave a pillar, an enhance shaman can't do anything other than attack all game). i don't complain about this a lot because jahmilli beats it to death and frankly i get less irritated by an idiot sitting behind a pillar than one running at me and attacking, but admittedly, the game would be much more fun for everyone if there were no shamans

the other one is an offensive one, and it's classes like hunter (and mage to a lesser extent) being able to fucking run at you, even as the kill target, and be literally unstoppable in their actions

if we're talking about warlocks and mages and hunters i can see how from the hunter perspective, you see your class is the weakest out of the three and are frustrated, but it's honestly lazy logic concluding your class takes more doing than the others because it's not as good

playing a hunter in arena is almost the same thing as playing it in pve so long as you are aware that some people can dispel wyvern and others might try to eat a trap

i'll admit now for a moment that it could be worse, though. if you play a mistweaver, you basically just do nothing except use instant cast abilities from max range the entire game, and if you play an enhance sham, you literally just attack all game. once every 40 seconds or so you are required to use an instant cast CC, which is the only ability you have that is not an attack

tl;dr: wizards more powerful than hunters, but they really ought to be, because a world where you can play mw beast cleave and beat good players playing real classes would be disappointing

if i made a chart sorting all the classes in the game on a level of scum with one axis for difficulty and the other axis for strength, hunters would be in the top 4 scumlords

Even tho what they did was a bug in the full definition of the word it could have been easily fixed after the first game (even before if they would have known that) by playing sl/sac which is as reasonable as Dark Bargain for multiple reasons, mainly because you can dispell intellect and mark before swaps but also because you can still bring back sl after every sacrifice even if they bugged the sl before, but they took them 2 loses to understand that and actually come with a decent decision (DB/SAC), so the lose its totally accurate.

"The dream team" laughing at people and calling to report boosts on their stream (under blazingboost logo rofl), bloodx reporting half of the ladder making nolifer perma banned, and many others temporal all of this because he got perma because of boosting, ends up with zeepeye and mp perma banned because of boosting, now after 1 year of playing every day every time they get kicked out of regionals losing 2 of their 3 series, eat a good dick, and also for those who said it was disgusting to use a bug, people like mp zeepeye or bloodx would cheat everyday to win you 1 euro even so its totally deserved

TBH If my team and I played better vs DK Monk // Knew how to beat them as we do now (we had only done a handful of games vs them on live) we would have went. At the same time, if we didn't get such shitty draft picks, we would have went also.

I never said it wasn't like that. Not entirely sure what you mean about making it to live, considering we are consistently within the top 5 teams on ladder. The reason we didnt face volta that much is that he barely queues at the times we can, not that we didn't purposely queue into them.
oh god shut up rofl

I preferred locks having instant fear comapred to the .5 sec casted fear that they can spam now while you're dying
