Welcome, fellow mages! Once more, it is time for us to hold this convenient council, as the PTR evolves entirely around our class once again.
It is my pleassure and previledge to announce, that once more, we will recieve a buff. Our aid in self-defensive mechanism that currently allows us to elude up to four targets at a time, should now consistantly increase our survivability, and we will be even harder to slay! Huzzah!
Many of you may have noticed, that our current useless abilities, such as deepfreeze, ring of frost and ice lance, which are of no use in PvP, should also soon recieve a review, so that they can rightfully be upgraded. My brothers and sisters, have we not suffered enough in the past? Did we not live through nerf after nerf five years ago? Sure, they buffed us back, but I believe, that payment for our weeks of suffering, being only among the top 5 best PvP classes, is long overdue!
It is time for us to step up and unite against the anti-mage policies that Blizzard entertainment has been running atleast 1/4000th of their development time with World of Warcraft. We have had enough, once and for all! - Again.
We need to take it to the Developers, and demand that our spell costs are reduced even further! Yes, I am aware they were reduced not long ago, but I can simply not get through more than 48 frostbolts in a single manatank! How is this fair, when a class such as Death Knight can continuously hit somebody with a sword? I say we demand a new system! From now on, all our spells shall cost no mana! We must break free from the tyranny of resource management, and embrace the ways of Sandbox mode! Our class needs to be more forgiving. Actualy, our class must at all times be on it's knees and beg the player for forgiveness while serving tea and cookies!
You, too, can become part of this movement! But before you join, please read through our very detailed and unbiased FAQ:
Q: I'm a frost mage. I rolled this class to dominate PvP, but several classes require me to cast multiple spells before they go dead! And sometimes I have to move when they get near me! is this fair?
A: Absolutely not! Fortunately our self defense mechanisms are getting buffed in 4.1, but there is MUCH more to be done. I promise, young mage, that once we are done, a mage will NEVER have to move again. - Because we will work untill our spells range 400.000 yards! You MUST be able to cast a frostbolt from your starting area in EoTS and hit any enemy out there you wish! Anything else is unfair.
Q: I forgot to click my crowd control abilities and now I almost died but then I did'nt. Is there anything that can be done?
A: Ofcourse there is! Rather than you having to remember to click multiple buttons, rather than spamming a single one, we are working hard to enforce new mechanics, that will allow your character to automatically cast CC abilities around the global cooldown. The current system is simply not forgiving enough!
Q: I'm in my greens still, but that does not mean I am any less entitled to pwn anyone else in the BG just because they spent time gathering gear. Why can they kill me if I don't click any buttons?
A: They can, because the class system is imbalanced! Anyone but us can do things to prevent them from death. But we should not HAVE to, where as they should not be ABLE to. It is that simple, and we will not stop untill this has been seen through!
Q: I clicked something and it did'nt die in one hit. What did I do wrong?!
A: You did nothing wrong, my friend. Sadly, the development team did. They are brutally enforcing a policy that makes our class so weak, that we cannot kill stuff with just one hit. This is ludacris. Do not tolerate this kind of abuse any longer! Join us, now!
Indeed, join us. Unite under our banners, and we will see to it, that Mages will become the ONLY Class in PvP that... Well. Actualy. Let's just make sure that Mages DOES become the only class. Anything else is filler filth.
