Pretty sure this expansion still blows MoP out of the water, (and cata imo). Sure, RNG gear is stupid, but it only sets you back a couple weeks in the long run if youre really unlucky.
This.

Honor farming for your Gear isn't a soulsucking experience where you want to kill yourself twice in the process because Blizz made you play BGs that were in the game for 9 years. There are very frequent class updates (compared to WoW history, at least) and they even seem to have half an eye on the pvp part. In MoP Rogues were the worst class for over a year before there were changes. I think every class has a specc that is arena viable right now.

Yeah, Blizz wants everyone to do RBG and Ashran although it is yet another failed world pvp attempt by them (do people even want a 24/7 mexican standoff where melees have no place execpt DKs?), but that won't matter in 2-3 months.

I love how chill Nessper is - it's such a nice contrast to Glicks who runs around and cries because some op comp beat his own op comp.

But Syledraa, you're wrong. WoW was an e-sport, no matter your personal opinion. It was a game and had tournaments and a lot of people watched it. It doesn't matter if it was fit to be one, it simply was. The thing that most people infuriates is just that Blizzard would've had the opportunity to really make something out of it (it had the biggest and most active userbase of any game), but instead opted to completely ignore it and it died.

You didnt need to win a rbg when you got higher cap via arena
Yeah, but you got a way higher cap with RBG then you did with Arena while RBG was arguably easier to do (besides organizing 10 people).

Easily the new freezing trap. Instant trap, knock into AoE-Stun, instant cc from another guy, another trap. Reminds me of the time palas had a 20 second cc chain all by themselves. Rogue almost unpeelable combined with 8 second stun is a close second though.

In Topic: Racial Balance top 5000 from 3v3 ladder

The thing I don't get about the whole debate is the way it went. I never saw people argue about racials and which are op until someone posted the statistics. Shouldn't we usually notice something is to strong and then pull the number to prove it and not vice versa?

Also it's the start of the expansion. No one will racechange within the first few weeks while Blizzard is also doing a lot more frequent updates on the pvp part of the game. All the respones are more like "I won't give them anymore money, fix this" and not "I will switch races now".

My point is that even if human and dwarf racials get nerfed we won't see a big difference in this numbers, let alone a switch to horde. Humans were always the most played (and one of the strongest) races around, so many people probably already had human chars. Bottom line, debate about the racials itself and not how X is strong because race Y is a lot in the top 5k arena teams. That in itself is not a proof for anything.
