Versus teams that don't train me start to finish it's rather enjoyable though so not all bad!
This is about 2350 MMR right now Every-game goes the same way. Trap > fear > silence > stun x50+ > trap again cause survival has 12sec trap. Playing TSG with an Rsham
Make a simple macro for your defensive stance with taunt so that everytime you use these abilities that puts you into battle stance, you can swap right back to defensive stance in the middle of it. It's not a bug and it is working as intended. Read the tooltip. Taunt forcefully puts you to defensive stance while in battle stance and it works while you are changing to battle stance as well.
If you were to change back to defensive stance w/o taunt macro into it, you would actually have to wait a global to change back to defensive. This is really really useful in situations like you need to quickly swap to battle stance to cs, reck, or ss and swap back to d-stance almost instantly. Just remember that taunt has 8 sec cd so you can't use it all the time but it makes a huge difference for the time you really need it.
