Thanks for the info, guys.   I haven't had it happen again as I have not played the DK since, but I will look out for patterns and update here  should I notice anything conspicuous.   :)

ummm i face people who play disc in stuff like rogue/mage and ret/hunter all the time

uegene isnt wrong, disc priests are pretty decent lol, but they're decent because of the comps theyre good in.

just like every other healer

no healer is really objectively good, besides rdruids. hpalas are only amazing inside jungle and god comp. rshamans are only amazing inside warlock/warrior. mws only really work at all in turbo and tsg. disc priests are great in rmp and php

to say priests are absolutely dog baby tier you are three things 1) a crybaby and 2) delusional and 3) extremely biased

what have you played as a disc priest this season to make you this sad? sorry buddy, disc priests won't be able to heal some mongo cleave anymore, they need support from their teammates

I am not sad at all.  I think you misunderstood the tone of my post.  I was merely pointing out that implying that people's opinions are somehow invalid because of their CR is--at best--problematic.  I suppose I should have been more explicit.  A "good" CR depends on the class a person is playing, the comp he or she is playing, and the seriousness with which that person is playing that particular class.  Disc is just not a lot of fun for many people outside of a very few comps, so those people are not playing their priests seriously.  I play mine every season, because for me, it is always fun.  In seasons like this, I play with RL friends and family and just try to have fun with it.  To be frank, I like it.  Beating shatter play or $#@!ing jungle cleave as disc TSG or shadowcleave at 1900-2000 MMR is just as satisfying as facerolling spicy chicken cleave was in s10 at 2500 MMR.

And yes, you are absolutely right, "disc priests won't be able to heal some mongo cleave anymore," and that is precisely my point.  Other healers have that option.  Priests remain, however, the one healer that requires babysitting.

itt: large egos, small cr

Frankly, I think the people bashing the 2k CR priests need to try getting higher than 2k as disc without running some bs fotm comp and then come back and post.  Achieving 2k as disc tsg or disc shadowcleave imho is more impressive than 2.8k jungle or shatterplay.  Is it possible?  Of course, definitely, but it takes real effort and good partners.

Now, if we are talking about people who have never achieved higher than 2k as disc, even during its heyday, well, that's a different story.  Bash away.

Blizzard should fix this asap this is unacceptable.
Hunters should be gods and never be defeated or interrupted even from that spell.


Keep abusing and ruining the game kids... enjoy it and be proud of it...

I started to reply after only reading the first three words--I had coffee for the first time in two years, and I am feeling as coked out as Robert Downey, Jr. of old.  I was all prepared to rage.  :duckers:

Anyhow, yeah, this was bound to happen, but it is not a bit more frustrating (in fact, it is way less frustrating, imho) than being CC'd the second I pop aura mastery/wings on my paladin, being CC'd the instant I start to cast penance, etc.  It sucks, but uncounterable crap really has no place in the game.  Arena, in my opinion, should be a game of moves and counter moves, more chess-like than anything else.

Your signature,

Part of the reason is that Battlegrounds are like ducks.
Is a reference to polymorphism in computer science.

It could also be a reference to Monte Python's The Holy Grail, wherein ducks are said to float because they are made of wood.  If a woman weighs the same as a duck, she, too, is made of wood, and is therefore a witch.  That is why we burn witches.  They are made of wood, just like battlegrounds.  :duckers:

You may, naturally, apply the idea of polymorphism here as well, as the duck and the witch are themselves subtypes of the wood superclass.

I though my ridiculous commentary would be apropos in this thread.
