Seen a few people comment on this from time to time and it made me curious how people feel about it, so I thought I'd make a poll.
(be patient a poll will be added, only made one so far and don't remember how)
I love pillar humping all day.
I don't mind it but would rather not have to much pillar humping in pvp.
I really don't like pillar humping what so ever.
I'm to cool to care.
Hate it, but I still do it.
Its not fun/engaging/skilful gameplay but I'll do whatever it takes to stop that frost mage from shattering me
I hate it, and I also hate having to do it. (too bad its a necessity)
As you may have guessed I hate arenas and prefer a god rbg instead.
I think it is funny, because I know it pisses people off so much because I am so good at humping.
That sounded better in my head...
Time...line? Time isn't made out of lines. It is made out of circles. That is why clocks are round. ~ Caboose
Playing resto shaman, you have no choice but to hump all day long
Its cancerous and always has been. Unfortunately its required for successful pvp.
i hate it, its really lame and cheap, but its a viable tactic and necessary in pvp. one of the things that puts me off high rated arena, you don't get much of it at low-mid rating, just the ocasional game where its impossible to do anything because the other team just has a resto druid running around a pillar.

I do it all day as healer and dps and it makes sense since it adds a positional dynamic to combat. You always have bad mages/locks/etc try to get a chaos bolt or a poly off and they can't because they're bad lol... so funny.
It only really bothers me when I'm doing 2's and kill off one of the other dudes and then the last one decides to be a jackass and hump all day.
Awesome sig thanks to i4ni
I dont mind it, I think it should be in the game, I think it has just gotten too strong with all the buffs to healer mobility and CC.
When you see someone in a thread making the same canned responses over and over, click their name, click view forum posts, and see if they are a troll. Then don't feed them."Gamer" is not a bad word. I identify as a gamer. When calling out those who persecute and harass, the word you're looking for is "asshole." @_DonAdams
I don't mind it. I'd take more pillar humping over more CC spam any day.
I think it belongs in the game, if it didn't exist then PvP would just be all about who hits the hardest. Being good at pillar humping just adds another dimension, both offensively and defensively, if you don't know how to catch someone running in circles you're going to be in trouble, and if you're good at running in circles you'll create a lot of extra breathing room.
LOOK AT MY LOCATION! been there since season 5!
You can tune a piano, but you can't tuna fish.
I love humping lots of things.
Pillars? Not so much.
We're all newbs, some are just more newbier than others.

Just a burned out hardcore raider turned casual.
I had Beta. Now I has WOD. Woo
Thanks for your answers folks.
I must admit I expected more to vote that they didn't like it even though a decent amount of people did.
Personally I don't care to much for it, I think hiding to recover is fine but runing around and around a pillar is some of the wierdest game play I have seen.
Retarded how nonsensitive ice-frost trap/knockbacks are in those situations, even if he walks DIRECTLY over -> no trigger.
Adds a lot to the gameplay. Adds a skillcap and means that there is even more team coordination.
Would you rather Arena and RBGs were played on completely flat maps with no collidable scenery? It'd make healers awful, promote stupid stuff like triple DPS and in general increase the amount of CC that healers would eat. LoS is amazing for this game - if you voted no, imagine what it'd be like without it.
