    Is it just me or does anyone else see that when you are feared, you can still get zerged by 2-3 people and the fear still lasts the entire duration?

    Priest used Psychic scream!
    Lock used Bloodfear!
    Warrior used shockwave!
    *trinket*
    Pally used Blinding light!
    Warrior used Intimidating shout!
    Lol blood fear is up!

    I guess I should say warriors and all those instant ccs can go die in a fire.

    They'll be just like they were in 4.2.

    Get kited/peeled/tunneled all game until their teammates line stuff up and then BAM! One shot macro for a kill. Shittiest playstyle ever and their welcoming it back with open arms.

    I still remember the rogue days... so even if now the only god spec remaining are frost mages, I still vote for rogues.

    Priests, I cannot fucking stand Shadow Priest / X / X ANYTHING right now.

    rogues, plz die ty cya

    Short-term? Warriors, with Hunters as a runner-up.

    Long term? Mages, particularly Frost. No other spec has even come close to achieving such consistent bullshit status in PvP.

    Bonus round: Healers in general. The entire healing philosophy in this game is 110% stupid. A healer should not be able to survive indefinitely with someone going all-out on them in 1v1, let alone 2v2. An endless health spring that can bring someone up to 100% in a flash does not make for fun PvP. At the very least, going OOM is something that needs to happen much, much faster.

    I have no idea how PvP look on recent patches anymore. I'd however like to see how all it would work if it was not full of long cooldowns and CC effects.

    Rogues, I've hated them on just about every toon I've played. Even if they can't kill you they're annoying as fuck.

    I'd get rid of death knights. They were really a poorly-designed class from the start, and to me always seemed just like a warrior with a new coat of paint. They're different enough that they can team up for an incredibly mongoloid comp (i.e. have a different dr cat on primary cc), but basically just tread on each others territory when it comes to other comps. Whichever one is better is simply the warrior class for the season. Rogues are seeming to go through a similar effect recently, but they've been around since the start and at least have some fundamental differences that make them unique.

    I like the healer mechanic in general, and actually think healers are mostly too vulnerable to being tunneled, but I agree they're definitely way too sustainable. For the past couple years I've been saying that drinking should be disabled entirely in arena, but with what they've done to hybrid mana regeneration I feel like that might not even be a good solution anymore. At least they've put a shorter draw timer on arenas now.

    I do find it funny that there are not that much people complaining about resto shammies or warlocks.
    Was talking about random bgs, not rateds. Randoms don't know game mechanics. And it's not like letting a warlock free cast chaos bolt, because I can actually shut down that damage. The only way to shut down touch of karma is to pray that people get off of the monk.

    Overpowered classes beside, I agree with the sentiment that Rogues mechanics don't work well in organized PVP. As mentioned, they are either completely controlling you, or easy to kill.

    Other then that, Frost Mages in their current iteration are completely frustrating to deal with. They have more escape mechanics then anyone has gap closers. It's to the point that if you pit an equally skilled Frost Mage against <insert every melee class/spec here>, the Frost Mage will always win.

    Blood DKs are just cheesy, really clunky design in terms of PvP.

    I say rogues. Not because I simply hate them (which is true btw) or because I think they are OP (which I don't think), but because their playstyle doesn't fit into the rest and causes only problems - stealth. Stealth is an interesting mechanics in solo/PVE but I think it should be left out of PVP. It created an unnecessary layer of whack-a-rougue and sapped-out-of-nowhere-lottery which in my opinion shatters the PVP flow and experience. PVP is all about picking your fights - if three hordes are storming your solo defended node, you can choose to retreat and fight at another node instead of getting killed in 5 seconds. But with rogues, you are denied the choice, when 2 of them suddenly appear out of thin air. The only thing you can do is die. PVP is about choosing your fight and preparing to face your fight. Stealth only creates an element of unfairness and unbalance. So that's the reason why rogues, because rogues = stealth. And this would create a nice precedens to deal with feral stealth too...
