Well as a gladiator player, can you explain how unavoidable cc on a 12 second cooldown is good for the game? And no, mages being op does not justify it.
I honestly have no idea because it's in BETA. If they remove Scatter Shot and who knows what else, my pet or how the fuck could I possibly know?

I know that it's going to be a different game. I know that instantly arming traps are not unavoidable because they have been in the game before. You had to use Scatter Shot to hit it. Barov's Peasant Caller? C'thun Tentacle? Mirror Images?

It isn't as easy as you think it is, especially if we're losing a core ability like Scatter Shot. That's like Warrior losing Charge or Mage losing Frost Nova. It's a huge deal.

Even if it was unavoidable, if that was the only CC a Hunter had that means you're potentially CC'd for 8 of every 30 seconds. As a Gladiator player I can easily explain to you that 8 seconds of CC plus "Counter Shot" pressure is much less than has been possible for the entire rest of the game.

And, is MUCH less than is possible by Mage on beta right now. Because you can CHAIN Polymorph so 8-4-2 instead of 8, free for 30 unless he wants to lose his pressure, 8, free for 30 etc.

How hard is it going to be to juke Counter Shot? Meanwhile, removing Imp CS probably isn't even being considered. And Deep Freeze is basically like a superior version of Scatter Shot which you get to keep. And Ring of Frost, Frostjaw, Frost Nova, Pet Nova, and oh yeah, Polymorph.

Do you understand how hunter CC works? Like, who cares if you're a Gladiator or not. If it has a 12 second cooldown, even if it's unavoidable do you honestly not grasp how much different that is than.. anything previous?

No season has someone been capable of only 8 seconds of CC plus an interrupt. Rogues have always had longer than that comboing stuns, Warrior even has shout, Death Knight is.. a hero class aaaand even Priests have always had the threat of mind control or whatever.

Hunter as you morons are describing it would literally have the lowest CC I can think of in arena history. Meanwhile, you're complaining about it being excessive.

That's just ignorant. You guys don't even have arguments, you're just Mages who are mad. Again, grats on access playing a Mage in whatever season this is. Really fantastic work.

Recuperate heals for like 15k every 3 seconds, good to know that mend pet that cost no resources heal for more than rogues. Also, maybe you shouldnt have sendt the pet behind the pillar mindlessly knowing you have no outs (bm isnt just a trinket for you, it's also a trinket for your pet) I'm sorry but I do not feel sorry for any hunter this expansion, you're playing the least punishable class in the game, if any other class goes in behind pillar like that, they can't recieve a 4 second cast to get back into the game, they lose the game.

Purely a l2p issue, maybe this will distingish good hunters from bads, because honestly atm- there is almost no difference at all between a good and a bad hunter. Use your brain, and get some pet awareness/macros.

You do realize there are many other pet classes in the game, right? They are also able to "not lose" when they send their pet behind the pillar. Difference being they can instant heal or instant res their pets without giving up important cooldowns in their spec.

Comparing Hunter pets to Rogues is one of the silliest things I've read in a while. Compare it to Felguards/Observers, or Ghouls, or Water Eles, etc.

P.S. you can still kill the Hunter pet when it's pulled back. Mend Pet is the only heal, doesn't matter if it's behind a pillar or not, the Hunter can't heal it more than that 11k tick.

And once again, holy fuck I can't believe you're trying to compare recuperate numbers to this. Ever seen the healing numbers DKs, Mages, and Locks can put on their pets? SO IMBA! Buff Rogues!

sucks for boneyards, good hunter with a cool name

jordyo and staz r2 ROFL
good thing i'm playing mage on the team right?

Now that the servers are down and I can safely expose this idiot, I'll clarify:

All images can be right clicked and opened in new tab for full size if they don't pan out right on AJ.

He's right. After farming this shit team until they stopped queuing, we took a break from 5s. A two month break that lasted through the end of the season. On the last day, our hunter was busy with mandatory military shenanigans or whatever. Our warrior went to bed at 10:30 or 11 or whatever. He goes to bed early. Our shaman went to his girlfriend's house and called me extremely drunk.

But I was still around.

When I saw this shitter seriously passed us by one point, in an attempt to deny our warrior/hunter/priest the prestigious gladiator title (because people give a shit about that), I had to burst his bubble. It was too much. So I queued with what I had.

  • A rogue who hadn't done a rated arena in months.
  • A hunter who hadn't played 5s since season 8.
  • A warrior alt.
  • And my best friend in the world, Holyentity.

The results:

We had such a shitcan MMR that we actually got 0 points for the first game, and 1 point for the next two games, but since these randies were so confident with their 1 point lead that they felt like they didn't have to check on us or push any higher than the already extremely difficult 3rd place in the 5s bracket, 2 points was enough.

After we played our games, he actually logged onto Arthas to gloat. Of course, I played dumb.

What a fucking retard.

The lesson: don't fuck with wigart, best played warrior i've seen all season and this 5s will be his first gladiator.

Thank god this shit season is over and we can get back to complaining about broken legendaries.
