    Compare for example the 9.6 % + 3.9 % + 0.4 % representation of paladins, well above mages. Druids are above mages. Shamans are above mages as well. Warriors too. If anything, mages are an average class. Given that these ratings were done mostly long before the recent mage nerfs, I think we can all agree now that mages are in desperate need of major buffs.

    If arcane mages are doing worse than DPS monks it's hard to see how the class could be considered OP.
    Are you serious? Comparing classes its not the way its done, you have to compare specs.

    By your logic I could say that if 80% of the players play mage and they represent a 9,3% over 2,2k than it will be perfect balance

    If you want to look at a class and all its specs, then yes you're right. Mages are weak but so are almost all other classes. However you cant do that because at least pure classes are being balanced around having 1 viable spec and for mages that's frost. And the data suggests frost as a spec - not mage as a class OP spec and useless specs included - is doing a lot better than it should be.

    That means (assuming no double warrior teams which is a false assumption) that almost 2 out of 3 teams above 2.2k has a warrior in it.
    And one of them is Tom Chilton

    Sorry I am not usually saying stuff like this, because if you believe GC, Kalgan and the other hacks over at Blizz HQ are playing favorites based on what classes they enjoy to play the most you obviously dont like intelligent thought. They dont do it intentionally, they just cant do any better than the mess they produce again and again, forever to repeat the same mistakes and find new ways to screw up.

    Still gotta love the famous Tom Chilton aka Kalgan quote from back in the day when warriors were as OP as they've ever been and got one of the usual slaps on the wrist: "I'm quite sure the pvp warrior I have will still be rockin' a s3 weapon within the first week despite this change." How could he be sure of that? Oh that's right because he is the single most responsible person for everything that is wrong with PvP and has been even back in BC with the horrible way arenas and resilience was introduced. And instead of getting fired, he is what now? Lead game designer or something?

    It's great to see the statistics for all of these classes.

    in some instances it's kinda sad though :-D

    I love how warriors keep climbing, arms spec at 16% rep in 3v3 now. That's just insane.
