Just finished watching the bleached bones vods and I would just like to discuss how the two rogues did. First of all Akrolol winning all his games playing assassination was extremely surprising, especially the comp lock/rogue/disc. Made me really want to try out some assassination comps on live. Personally I have not seen that comp on live at all during MOP, really excited to see how they do on their next match-up. Then samx playing RMP with hydra, their games were extremely close with hydra pulling out some really good plays. I feel like they wouldn't have been as successful if the hunter they were facing was beast master though, either way really good games out of them. Glad to see people play some rogue comps and not get stomped, really curious to see if any of them can go any further.
They give warriors and hunters a full season of being ridiculously overpowered (season 12) and they give rogues half of season 13 then render us useless. It's not even the cloak and dagger nerf that screwed us, it's the reduction in our cheap shot and garrote, the only reason rogues were pulling off huge bursts was because we could cheap shot twice during a dance for an extra eviscerate. We used to be the "control class" now what the hell are we.
Arena is slowly becoming less popular and season after season we see people transfer off to smaller battlegroups to achieve an easier Gladiator or R1 title. Should Blizzard take all the battlegroups and make them into 1 or 2 bigger ones. Perhaps 1 West BG and 1 East BG, or just 1 giant BG. This change would virtually eliminate any wintrading to rank 1 and it would give a better perspective on who are the best players. Sure there would be less rank 1 titles to go around but that only makes them more unique. The east and west bgs que into eachother already so it's definitly possible for blizzard to make this happen

- Why can't blizzard combine battle groups into one west coast and one east coast, maybe one central as well
- Why did blizzard take out the Item that dismounts players in MOP, the only item that could somewhat revive world pvp
