Pretty happy with all the changes so far, especially seeing curses making a comeback. The only thing left on my wishlist is an ability that can slow people
I'm happy that we can pick a curse, but the Legion curse setup is infinitely worse than past curse setups.  It should be a lesson on how much expectations have fallen when we feel happy to get a single curse.  It's very frustrating that curses are not an integral part of the baseline Warlock class.  (Likely because curses are hard to make work in raiding :/)

The biggest problem with "scripted pvp" is that almost all damage outside of setup for most of those comps is pretty meaningless.
Personally I think the biggest problem is lack of pressure, especially outside of cooldowns. This game has mainly turned into trading cooldown for cooldown and I think that's really stale game design. In wrath, and also somewhat in MoP, you could force cooldowns with just good swaps and decision making. Another important point is that pressure causes mistakes. People tend to panic under pressure being unable to think clearly and I find it hard to believe that many players nowadays would be able to go through their flowchart pvp while hovering at dangerously low health pools while knowing they have to do something about it.
I think this is a well said and succinct explanation of the root problem.  Especially the part about pressure forcing mistakes.

I'm happy about Dark Soul, Charred Remains, and Soul Swap being removed
