Nightfall a very respected battlegroup with a good history behind it.
The highest warrior is 2178
The second highest is 2094
The third is 2071
4th is 2020.
Now by looking at these awwful results is it fair to say warriors are the worst possible melee? Sure is. Every top team is a caster cleave and the only melee are dks and rogue. A dk can stay in blood presence and do more than enough damage to burst someone down?? OR EVEN solo a healer by him self. Wtf is that about? If warriors got a nerf in 5.2 where sitting in defensive stance is almost un-playable let alone attempt to kill a healer. They see Dk's being able to this as being fair? Rogues are rogues. Pretty self explantory. They are flavour of the patch and good for everything with almost 0 downsides. Cool. Now if the top level players are barely around 2020 is it fair for a mediocre warrior like to be attempting to break 1800 like I am a damn noob again? Ive played my warrior since wrath with decent pvp achieves such as high 2100 and going back to this and struggling this hard to get anywhere is pathetic. If I am not in defensive I can get switched to and die within a stun if no trinket is up. Fine Il sit in defensive stance I must still excel at something right? Wronge, the only CC i have is a fear on a 2 minute cooldown which can break from anything. Our damage is borderline. Understand what I mean by this when I say borderline because it is no where near close to as burst from any other classes. So my only options are to run a cleave with a healer than can keep me up during my burst in battle stance than switch to defensive and afk for 3 minutes until my cooldowns are back up to try again.
I just got done playing on the ptr and that is even worse. I dont know whoes idea it was to make this game a stalemate again where no one does damage and healers dont die. We had this problem in patch 4.3 where no healers died and blizzard didnt really care because it was end of expansion and let it be overpowered for 2 months before cata. Warrior damage is awwful on ptr, our survivability is decent just because everyone else does no damage. The defensive stance buff barely affected us. Sitting in battle stance is a little bit more optimal now because everyone does so much less damage and burst started to calm down but havent done anything competitive to change my mind on this. In general our class needs to be buffed ridiculous to catch up to what we were known for, because right now we are only good for flag carrying, (which btw is going to be awwful next patch because we drop harder than a rock with the flag). Back to pve for me I guess until blizzard pulls their head outa their ass, fires their whole department and hires some new people to balance this game.
TL;DR, Warriors are shit, next patch doesn't get any better and some could argue even worse. GG.
