Thread: Tanks in pvp

    Tanks in pvp

    why is it even allowed?
    1) Load the amount of weight I would deadlift onto the bench
    2) Unrack
    3) Crank out 15 reps
    4) Be ashamed of constantly skipping leg day

    Because tanks counters healers, and your pvp trinket is your best friend when fighting a guardian druid, that's why

    Because when you start restricting roles, where does it end?
    What's next; 'why are healers allowed in PvP?'
    We'd need a whole new role: 'PvP.'

    Removing healers from PvP would make the game 10x faster paced and much more skillful. There's a reason most PvP games don't allow healers.

    More fast paced? I'm pretty sure people are still dying in 4-5 seconds right now. How would it make it more skillful at all?

    If you die in 4-5 seconds, you're comically bad. It's literally impossible for anyone to die in 4-5 seconds if you have trinket and class cooldowns ready and above-preschool-level awereness skills.

    Currently, you can't win Arathi as horde without a tank (at least on russian battlegroups). Because 1/3 will take farm, 1/3 will die on LM, 1/3 will take GM and we will end with 2 defenseless capped points, because all players will try to take stables. As a tank you can defend point even only by yourself much longer. If you can stand 30 seconds, someone will res on graveyard and help you.

    or the fact most pvp games aren't based on a rbg....

    and more skillful, no.

    It most definitely would not. Also what MMORPGs don't have healers in PvP? This is a genuine question since I've only tried a few and all of them have had healers in PvP.

    Pretty much this exactly. Having Kitty Cleave connect with you and shockwave you you're pretty much dead without any peels, funny part is those two dps have a trinket also. Play an arena this season. If your healer gets feared around a corner, or CC'd in pretty much any way, there are 2-3 classes that will just flat out kill someone if 2 people are focusing you. "Comically bad." Have you payed any attention to this season?
