I wonder how bad Holinka feels having to dodge the Mage questions and stick to GC's obviously biased easily proven false reasoning.
"These people, Adam, they're like ghosts. Always in the shadows. Always hiding behind lies and proxy soldiers. I need you to find them. They cannot stop us. They cannot stop the future".
Someone rolls a melee, then is suprised that most range classes do very well against, them. If you are going to Pvp why roll a melee?
More Mage Bias. Mortal Strike was a core warrior ability, 50% healing debuff giving us utility that made us wanted in PvP over classes lacking it, and we had it for 6 years, yet did we get to keep having that added utility in the face of supposed pvp imbalance, NO.Core mage abilities make mages do well in PVP, abilities that you cant take away.
There are plenty of examples of one time core class abilities being heavily nerfed or outright removed due to balance. Mages should not be treated any differently.
Seeing lots of mage questions in the twitch chat for the Holinka/GC interview on right now. Doubt they answer any. http://www.twitch.tv/gamebreakertv
Now Gamebreaker is deleting any balance questions from chat. Another worthless interview. Its like watching MSNBC ask obama questions.

If anything the Spell Reflect nerf was a core ability that Blizzard nerfed without any reason at all. No statements, just nerfed because apparently it was the solution to fix warrior damage in S9.
It's about time mages got nerfed. Having ridiculous burst, CC, and survivability cannot slide. In the past mages have always had the very good CC and survivability, but their burst wasn't as high as it is now. Something has to change if anything it should be their burst toned down, counterspell blanket silence removed, deep freeze slight cooldown increase and turned into a missile, and Blink not breaking stuns. Mages shouldn't have an answer to every problem.
And the "you have to play it to understand argument" was retarded 8 years ago and still retarded now. The game is not that complicated and simply playing against and with a class for many hundreds of hours will give you all the insight into it you need to understand why being able to 100-0 someone every 30s while having a 15s CD that prevents you from dying to your own bullshit is wrong.
