balance is not the main problem with arena

07 August 2015 - 01:17 AM

I think most of us here have had our expectations destroyed by blizzard one too many times to expect anything but mediocrity in this upcoming expansion (which is partially our fault but I’ll get to that in a second) but something needs to be said for the people that mistake separate PvP and PvE talents for better arena.  This might come as a shock to some people but WoW PvP has never been balanced and never will be, not during the golden age of Nahj’s season 8 RMP mirrors, certainly not during season 5’s unkillable juggernaut death knight saga and not even during the plethora of comp diversity that was season 15.  The main problem with this game is that over the course of years the adjustments to classes, specifically the pruning, have led to classes losing their uniqueness and complexity which ultimately led to the painfully scripted PvP we know today.

Arena was perfectly fine when only a few compositions were viable because each composition was strikingly unlike the other even when the difference was something as small as a healer variant.  Class distinction has been burned at the stake by the developers for more comp diversity and balance, which are frankly just red herrings that the community has cried for for too long.

Things that make me sad:

Mages are Hunters
Hunters are Hunters

All healers are Paladins

Everyone can do everything
Damage is gated by cooldown and secondary resource rather than position and cast time
Too many defensives
Healing too strong
Mortal strike too weak
Everyone can do everything
Nobody has any unique tools anymore

TL;DR I challenge blizzard to make the game fun again, not balanced

is it class envy or class rivalry
