looks like they went right off the snapshot from the last hour so cutoff is right where it was and all pilots got titles
banwave hasnt happened and a couple community members have provided them with some pretty solid + extensive documents they are checking out
afaik people who didnt log in are also getting removed
s/o to blizz for taking the necessary time to clean these ladders up even when they have a ton of work going with the xpac coming out, was not expecting them to do anything. if ur on the rekt list i feel bad for u son
a lot of people treat pom like a quick instant heal you spam off cooldown but that was a niche it filled for me only when i first started the game in s5. me and a buddy were just starting out as priest hunter and were getting rekt by dk hpally, and one of the big breakthroughs was bouncing prayer between us through ground aoe so we got every charge off very quickly every time.
i think good prayer usage (using it when your whole team is close and will take damage, rather than just randomly off cooldown) was one of the small things seperated good spriests from medicore ones in a lot of situations even last season. It wasn't uncommon for me to have more healing than a boomkin or ele running lsd 2.0 or lsd with mostly shield or prayer of mending just by using it when everyone had dots and was close by.
to see the ability gutted isn't as much of a bummer as some of the other abilities that have been gutted since wotlk (swd and dispel/purge being the biggest) and its gonna be interesting to see how you are supposed to differentiate yourself as a priest in arena come next season.
