I'd like to beg to Blizz to not remove SS from BM and make Readiness a mainly defensive ability...the majority of people asking for those nerfs are crying because they get roflstomped by a class they don't know how to fight. Instead of focusing on making BM less viable, why not make MM more viable? The spec is garbage and needs retooling, IMO it's far too based on RNGs waiting for the aimed shot proc, primarily using steady shot is fucking boring and makes playing the spec awkward and unrewarding. Plus what about survival? The spec is even worse than MM in most cases and lacks a lot of utility even in comparison to MM. Why not focus on making both of those specs better? There was a good attempt in 5.3, a lot of changes I agreed with, but now efforts are directed to hurting a spec that is actually good. I just don't get the reasoning or methodology, hunters are a really fun class to play and part of the reason I pay for my sub. Don't ruin it for the sake of the constantly declining community of try hards and cry babies.
I understand BM is highly represented in high rated arenas/rbgs, but there's a damn good reason for that. Further damaging it isn't going to draw players to the other specs when they aren't that good. Why not give SS a longer CD (up from 24 secs, which is REALLY LOW), rather then remove it altogether and give it to shitty MM?
