Hello fellow WoW'ers. I've never felt the need to post on forums before. I read forums from time to time to check things out and read up on what's hot and what's not etc. But this last couple of months, (although through Cataclysm I felt this a bit too), I've noticed the amount of CC now seems to be a little bit out of control. With certain classes having a far bigger advantage than others.
What's brought me to post is that last night we were in a match against a Frost Mage/Resto druid (2vs2 but only for fun, which didn't turn out to be much fun). It was unreal. We managed to kill the mage just as they killed my Priest. Then after 4-5 minutes of trying to catch the Druid to kill it, with many cyclones/roots etc the Druid must've thought it had had enough and went kitty and completely destroyed our Warrior and I just couldn't believe it, I felt so powerless and useless.
I do feel the game needs CC. What i'm getting at is the amount of quickly spammable CC with very little DR making any difference in Arenas that is now completely ruining the fun/competitive nature of Arena. What i'm noticing is pretty much every Arena match now seems to be revolved around being constantly sheeped/hexed/cycloned/feared/stunned/froze/silenced etc etc. Meaning i'm sat for nearly the entire match watching my team mates being bashed with nothing I can do about it. I've been PvPing for a long time and prefer PvP to raiding. I know how to use LoS and pillar hump etc but it seems pointless as eventually you get caught and once caught that's it.
I'm becoming disillusioned as to Blizzards motives for PvP, especially when I read some blue posts and they say they're happy there *isn't* too much CC in the game. I've played Warcraft since vanilla and have never felt so frustrated than I do now. I feel like i'm playing without actually playing if that makes sense, and I have no clue what to do when constantly CC'd until the game is lost except maybe give up.
I also think healers are far too strong. I have a Disc Priest and Holy Paladin. While the Priest is ok its far behind what the Paladin is capable of. I feel like my Priest is a sitting duck while the Paladin hardly gets phased when subjected to the same sort of treatment..
I really don't know what to think about PvP anymore.. Btw Sorry for the *rant* as they say lol
