I am a fire mage and my partner is a Holy Paladin. We did some 2v2s yesterday and had a pretty interesting fight. Hold your horses this is not a QQ post, I just want to share what happened in that fight and maybe find what your opinions are on the situation described bellow.
We went against a team composed of a Balance Druid and a Disc Priest. We had pretty much similar gear. We fought for 15 freakin' minutes. I couldn't burst down any of them and they couldn't kill any of us. A lot of CC's (annoying tornado silence beam crap all the way). A few times they almost killed my partner and other times I almost killed the priest or the druid. In that fight both of the teams managed insane CC chains but no one died.
In the end the situation was like this. All of us were full HP, my paladin partner had around 60% mana and the disc priest was low on mana for the last 10 mins. He still could heal the hell out of himself and the druid and also throw shields. I am not exagerating 70-80% of the fight the disc priest was at 20% mana max. I remember I even chained 5 Pyros that all crit (thank the RNG gods) and I still couldn't finish him off (got him to around 5%). In my opinion in that situation should be GG and we should have won and the bloody priest should be unable to heal anything. After 15 or so minutes my partner got a major lag spike and DC'ed so we lost the match, and the opposite team started to yell like morons some intangible stuff, probably something like "yeah we pwned you, we are better than you". In the end I did almost double the DPS that the balance druid did.
Again I am not QQing and I really enjoyed the fight because it was pretty tensed (I was sweating like a pig at the end). I actually PVP for these kind of moments when you have a long fight and you have to do absolutely everything perfect to win. But in my opinion the situation in which the priest was OOM completely and I did double the DPS than of the opponent we should have won.
