    Agree. Although as a CC it's duration is no different to any other, and plenty of classes have special counters to it; that being sent running away from where you want to be just makes it more annoying than Poly, Hex or whatever other CC is thrown at you. Even though, probably most of those Fears don't actually put you any more in harms way than you were already, and plenty actually end up sending you completely out of it.

    Low representation, and the fact we use a lot of abilities; which mean people need to learn more about our abilities just add to that.

    That doesn't neceserily mean they're underpowered, but it is a pretty good indicator that they may not be fun, and lack of fun can certainly stem from poor / stressful pvp play, since warlocks rarely struggle on the pve front (some previous tiers often had them having to work twice as hard as other classes for the same output, but that's not necessarily a bad thing, since at least it was engaging).
    That's my point. fun != OP.

    This class is not fun to me. But I know people who rolled a lock just because they were OP for arena at some point. Not because they felt the class was fun, but for them, being op was fun!! This is the problem between fun and balance. You love your enhance sham and dont really like warlocks, but when you see that with the same skill, you win with your lock where you can do nothing with your enhance, you finaly choose to play your lock!!

    Everybody see the fun where they feel it. But still!! Warlock is still one of the least played class. Make me think that: if you dont count people who rolled warlock because it is (was) op for pvp or pve, their is à very few people who choosed this class just because they felt it fun. And I believe this is the problem with this class représentation.

    why do people hate Warlocks?

    -death coil
    -Wrath Conflag
    -UA dispell
    -5.0 Chaos Bolt
    -in 5 man dungeons, Arms Warriors again are the weakest link in the chain as they require 3X amount of healing as other classes and therefore die much more frequently and receive less healing in general, as with the amount of mana spent to keep an Arms Warrior alive the healer can heal all other members and himself.
