Heck, I'm 2.4k rated on my alt hunter (2.5k on main warlock atm), with not even full pvp gear in 3s because my damage is that insane I can drop the other team on my own in a matter of seconds.
Heck, against other teams that don't have a bm hunter or warrior, I do enough damage to kill them without the help from my warrior partner.
Being able to 2v3 teams because of my class, clearly means it's overpowered.
Also, how can you practice against something that kills you before you even get a chance to try fighting back?
They need to lower a BMs burst but give them decent sustained damage. Honestly silence shot needs to be removed from the talents and given back to MM. Bm pet should not be able to do any other attacks while doing lynx rush.
Honestly, I'm just going to stop playing til they're nerfed along with frost mages and shadow priests. Hate me.

did some more 2s last night ( my pocket dk is STILL not 90 yet the lazy bastard) as ret/mage sitting around 2k mmr, any hunter team was pretty much an auto loss for us unless we manage to rush the hunter down before he could do anything.
whats more i'm seeing a lot of hunters are are pretty darn terrible starting to climb the ladders based on this. we ran into a resto shaman/bm hunter team on RoV. he gibbed my mage before i could even get a BoP on him or he could iceblock, or i could get close enough to blind his pets. BUT, then he spent about 10 minutes desperately S keying away from me, because he didn't know how to kite or strafe. eventually his cds came up again and he killed me. it was sad and pathetic. i hate losing because of dumb gimmicks rather then actual skill.
as this point in the game, the fact that we're burning control cooldowns and blanket silences on things like hunter pets and psyfiends is a really really ridiculous place to be.

" I need a sec, my wrists hurt from spamming slam so hard. Playing cleave vs cleave is tough stuff guys"
When people get the t1 weapons hunter burst is going to go up even more and be even more ridiculous which is what im most worried about.
i don't understand why hunters got an instant army of the dead that they can use in arena in the first place... i mean if u add up all the ghouls you summon IF you finish channeling army, they would combined be doing as much as a frost dk's summoned ghoul. IMO either let army be used in arena (which even if it is able to i probably wont use it XD ) or take away stamepede from arena. Stampede post nerf = army
Have a look at arena rep throughout cata, hunters were rock bottom for all of it until last part of s11 because of triple dps.
When i started playing in s8 wrath hunters were pretty terrible too, i came too late to hit the beastcleave and PHD bandwagon
Having a low numbers of skilled players does not make the class "bad".
Edit : Also, back on topic, obviously there is nothing in Patch 5.1 because they will fix it in patch 5.0.5, there is no way they will let an entire PvP season die just like in S5

lol, not sure where you're getting your info from but it's not for this game, hunters overall had the lowest arena representation for cataclysm.

Owning with a hunter in bgs was easy because i knew what I was doing and many people don't however as soon as I started playing my alt mage, rogue and druid, i just realised how weak hunters were compared to them. I hadn't played them nearly as much as my hunter and still was doing as well or better because their class mechanics were just overall better than hunters.
Not sure where you get your info either, but from playing and checking the ladder during Cataclysm, Hunters were everywhere at high ratings, in many many differents comp.lol, not sure where you're getting your info from but it's not for this game, hunters overall had the lowest arena representation for cataclysm.
There will most likely be nerfs. Not that they will do much good considering nobody even has PvP weapons yet which increase your PvP power by roughly 15%+~.
I think people are just too used to Cataclysm pvp style because current PvP feels more like Wotlk pvp. Just guessing that's one of the problems :P

Thug Cleave was probably one of the best comps in the game during that time. Nobody also likes to mention how good Hunters were in the Tournament Realm when everything was scaled to season 9.
