even if you're the worst class in the game for 15 straight seasons it doesn't entitle you to one season of being blatantly overpowered.
that is waht dks are right now, not strong.
we shouldn't strive for a game where every class gets their time in the sunshine we should strive for a game where nothing is fucking retarded. and if you think your class is anything but then you have serious issues.
edit: "1 season of DKs being good sure is making a lot of people angry." i don't think anyone has forgotten s5 or s6
It's pretty much this. DKs have such a terrible design. They're either extremely good or they're pretty much useless and terrible, because all they bring to the table outside of like deathgrip and asphixiate/strang (maybe pet gnaw and leap woo if you're unholy) is pure damage, and 420 ways out of CC. An example from last season of MoP was that DKs could do extremely high damage training one target, but that's really it and they can also just get blown up. Now, they have even higher damage than they had last season, and are now way way way tankier, and on top of that with the removal of many CC effects, and them still having so many immunities to CCs it makes them crazy good. And finally the icing onto the cake of the removal of CC effects was that the 1 cc that they are extremely weak against, which is roots, are now very hard to find. For the most part hunters are running other talents other than Narrow escape as posthaste and Crouching Tiger are way more effective with the current game pace, outside of narrow escape being good vs rogue+priest compositions.
Not only that but mages lost most of their novas, and mages were always extremely strong against DKs.
There are so many direct and indirect buffs to DKs from the start of WoD that it isn't even about them being strong it's just them being retarded lol. Their kit could really use an overhaul and redesign in all honesty. Even if right now they aren't the strongest of the OP classes, their design is just incredibly terrible.
