What do you think, would cutting the mana regen down to 50% in 2's would fix it current issues?
Blizzard has no interest in 2v2 balance, leave it alone people queue into 2's knowing they can have 40min games
No, because holy paladins don't need mana to heal and it would make destruction useless...
Blizzard said people are already complaining about low mana reg in PvP and they're currently looking into this. The problem is that Healers are balanced around 3on3 and RBG and there you need a whole lot of more healing then you currently do.
Don't you dare touch my SPriests mana! It's shit as it is already, nerf moonkin mana if you need to strip someone off it.
I'd like for eating/drinking to be disabled in arenas at this point. Not just in 2v2, either. Considering how much CC there is ingame, it's not even a rare occurrence that you can sit and drink for a few seconds, and of course water is so strong right now that it only takes a couple seconds to get your entire mana pool back. Simply cutting mana regen would mean that either certain hybrids oom themselves and cease to be able to damage at some point (flat nerf breaks hybrids), or double hybrid teams will end up just outlasting healer/damage ones (healer-only nerf breaks healers). Nerfing food/water is a more elegant solution. Though it would certainly hurt double dps mage teams, I think it's the least objectionable way to reduce stalemate games.
I think the 25minutes is still to long. It should be like 10. In 2s its like this:
Option A: ZOMG WTF POP ALL CDS LOL, fight ends somehwere between 10 seconds and 2 minutes
Option B: 2 healer/dps teams, most likely no1 dies on equal gear level...so you wait 25min, some1 dies cause losing focus, or someone just leaves
Reckon a disc priest would find this change amusing. Discs already oom in about 1-2 minutes through NORMAL healing (not burst). And that is not counting in use of mass dispel, Halo or the such. But yeah, I guess when people complain about ALL healers having too good survivability, healing, mana regen, burst etc. they forget about discs, because no serious discs play anymore.
mana regen is fine and balanced around 3v3.
they should give disc back mana burn though, its part of what let them compete against classes with better mana longevity.
bring the light.

If you gem/reforge spirit, use Mindbender on cooldown and overall pay attention to your mana management you shouldn't run oom.
i'm not entirely sure how it would be a problem to balance, it wasn't hugely overpowered before and most people knew how to counter it.
healer/dps 2s have always made me want to shoot puppies, my 40 minute game as hpal/uhdk vs resto sham/prot warr still haunts me to this day. i'm not sure why anyone would willingly do healer/dps 2s since the more quick games you can have as double dps the faster you can get your points, and honestly is there any reason to do 2s other then points?
bring the light.
Kosechi, let's agree to disagree. Manaburn was cheap and a single good CC was often enough to burn through large parts of the opponents mana pool. The pressure that could and can still be applied by some abilities alone forcing the other side to play defensively is idiotic. Situations like that shouldn't arise, it's not like you're fighting an boss but just another player.
