The thing is Blizzard already determines your stat values as it is right now and with the current situation of choosing what gear you want to buy it's more of trying to make good of a bad situation in my opinion. And let's be honest here, we don't really have that much customization as it is right now.

I'm just glad because this is the closest Blizzard has come to separating pve and pvp. I can't even emphasize how important this is. There are so many pvp classes that remain terrible strictly because they are good in pve and vice versa. Stat templates allows Blizzard to tweak so many things and be much more aggressive with balancing in pvp without having to consult to the pve department at Blizzard.

All of those examples aren't really relevant because Blizzard can adjust the stats accordingly to be balanced in all of the situations above. Basically you're trying to say that you want to be able to control your stats because Blizzard is stupid but that isn't really part of the argument.

Your shadow priest argument doesn't even make sense. The only reason you say priests "need" crit heavy gear is because there is a choice to get it in the first place. If, for example, shadow priests were weak without this gear in RBGs(which they are not), Blizzard would have the ability to CHANGE this because they control the stats. This system makes it far easier for them balance pvp without affecting pve at all and that is what almost everyone has been asking for.

In regards to the multistrike for frostmages/elemental shamans/rogues, they obviously aren't going to prioritize shitty stats to certain classes and if they do by mistake the whole point of this system is that they can change it very easily.

It might be easier for you to understand this if I give you some examples of why this system is good.

Elemental shamans greatly benefit from multistrike, but as we all know its effectiveness is halved in pvp. With statless pvp gear Blizzard can increase the amount of multistrike for only elemental shamans, or instead, they could just simply increase their intellect if their damage in pvp is too low.

Another problem is that disc priests and mistweaver monks have mana issues in pvp. They can simply increase the spirit for those two classes in the stat template while not affecting other classes and pve.

How can people even begin to complain about the lack of customization of stats? There is almost always going to be a mathematically superior stat. I don't think the feeling of being unique is proper justification here.

Blizzard having control of what stats certain classes have and how much will just make it that much easier for them to balance all the classes.
