early s9 leaving arena = didn't lose points or mmr so they had to reset ratings and mmr, i think you're thinking of s10 when they reset mmr mid season and people just sat on rank 1 and glad because they were nearly unreachable afterwards.

You've got that slightly wrong.  At the end of season 9 people MMR exploited like hell and reached ridiculous MMRs like 3500-3700. They then fixed the exploits but failed to reset MMR and allowed s10 to start with people still sitting in the 3000s.  As soon as the season opened, several teams on each BG walked straight back up into the 3000s, and everyone raged at how fucking stupid blizzard was.  Then about 3 weeks into the season they had a stroke of genius and just reset MMR to 1500 and left CR where it was.  The result of this was about 10 teams on each BG sitting around 3k rating (those who had grinded games the first couple of weeks) and then the rest of the ladder peaked in the 2600s, with a gap of about 300 between the top rated real team and the lowest rated rating sitters.  These people sat their 3k for literally an entire season, minus two or three weeks at the start.  As I recall, there was a lot of extra scumbagging at the end of that season too, because basically the only chance any of those teams had at getting rank 1 was to wintrade with another one, so those juicy 3k rating games were just sold back and forth.

Man they sure are good at making world of warcraft.

Edit: lol you have an s10 helmet, I guess you were one of those people?

The patch was after season ended, but pretty sure it allowed random rets to get 2200 shoulders etc even though titles were done.

This is what happened as I recall.

99% of these mages play with druid, if druids get nerfed we'll see again.

This is not a satisfactory answer.  While it has some truth to it, there is absolutely no way that's the whole story.  Everyone is playing with a druid right now, druids are ridiculous.  By that logic every class is fine right now because they're all playing mostly with druids.

If druids get nerfed and disc gets the help it needs, it'll just be mage/disc/X.  Mage/druid/X is easily one of the strongest comps in the game right now, and rmd may be the actual strongest comp in the game.  This is not because druids are overpowered.  Mages are at fault here too, and are EASILY somewhere between strong and overpowered.  Making any kind of buff to mages right now is going to be a terrible move, moderate buffs to an already strong class is exactly the type of thing that ends up tipping the scales and fucks up a whole season's ladder.
