In my opinion it's bad argument to say: "locks were op in Mop, it's Mages' turn to be op". ->Everything should be equally good, not like it's your turn,then it's my turn to be op.
And I hate melees, fuck them, fuck turbo and wwdk.
(And I was a big fan of mage playstyle in Wotlk (besides the mage armor 50% magic debuff duration reduce) and Cata mage, when they were Glasscannons, but they are faceroll op atm.)
You misinterpreted my post. You can't support idiotic nerfs, even if it's the thing that pisses you off the most, even if it's the thing that counters you the most. If you have that mentality, every class will turn more and more to shit.
Mages in this expansion are fucking ridiculous in both PvE and PvP. That means that both pve'rs and pvp'rs are crying about them, which means that Blizzard wants to satisfy their playerbase by nerfing them. Okay, that's absolutely fine. But they didn't stop and think for a second about WHAT change would be a GOOD change?
Bad change is nerfing a stun around which the whole class revolves.
Good change(s) would be putting RoF on Arcane school ( no more poly-RoF swapping after one or the other gets interrupted ), Frostjaw slowing instead of rooting the target ( stops situations where poly gets interrupted, healer gets frostjawed instead, and then placed into sheep afterwards ), and Iceblock+Cold Snap exchanging cooldowns ( IB is 5 min atm, Snap is 3. Logic??? ). Mages balanced at this point? I'm pretty sure the answer is yes.
Also, I never said "it's fine for X to be OP now because Y was OP last season/expansion/etc". I said it's wrong to blindly nerfs things just because they're too good. I'm a programmer by trade, and debugging is a part of the job description - if something doesn't work, I need to identify WHAT EXACTLY makes this thing misbehave - game balancing process needs to be basically exactly the same. Mages are good. Okay, WHY are Mages good, and WHAT can I do to put them more in balance, yet for them to remain good?
Blizzard as of late just blindly seems to make changes, like throwing darts at the board while wearing a blindfold, so some of it turns out good and some of it turns out bad. When community of supposedly high rated PvP players has people posting positive things about absolutely moronic changes, that's the time to abandon this fucking ship.
