im fairly sure they wont launch WoD with the "current" implementation of chaotic resources as it is quite useless in many situations IMO, atleast the destro version is crap for anything that isnt purely single target, teh afflic version seem to cost 2 soul shards for +15% dot dmg boost for 30 secs which is a pretty steep cost and the demo version doesnt really change all that much, you'd prolly still stance dance since HoG is better than chaos wave afaik and the reduced dmg in meta doesnt make that too attractive if you ask me, the talent certainly seems very lackluster to me but that might just be me.
So you not only assume that most of us haven't played back then, but also state that no one enjoyed it more then MoP Affliction, because you didn't? Swell.
Furtheremore I doubt anyone has anything against Soul Swap, the spell was fine back when it had a cooldown and allowed you to swap targets instantly.
The annoying part about this subject is the fact that nowdays you press one button several times to put your dots up on a certain amount of targets. I play a dot class and I don't want to multidot, so instead of swaping specs so I won't have to I want blizzard to give me one button to rule them all.
That's not a good design, but exactly what you mentioned regarding nerfing Demonology - straight up dumbing something down to appeal the masses.
Look what they did to Demo in MoP. They turned a pretty boring cooldown based spec into something with depth. With Affliction they did the exact opposite.
Feel free to visit my Youtube-channel.
Deathknight's do it using disease, blood and the power of the unholy. Warlocks do it with dark demons by their side. Mages do it with summoned arcane powers. Druids do it using the forces of nature. Rogues do it through stealth, poison's, shadows and....from behind. Paladins do it by calling to the light for aid. Shamans do it with the help of the elements. Priests do it through the holy light.
Warriors just fucking do it.
Removing SB:SS is also not magically going to make certain less able Warlocks play the class better cause they are now forced to hard cast.
Smoother fury regen, balance the DPS around that.
and you're sorta contradicting yourself, a dot class and multidotting go hand in hand, you cant have 1 without the other, its a dot spec's strength.
and i never said demo should get nerfed, i said it should be "dumbed" down a bit to reduce the skillcap a bit for new players.

Either fix Gateway, or take it out. The 100yrd despawn range is beyond stupid for PvE.
