    Cool, so what?

    3v3 is the main competitive format in WoW, it's used in arena tournaments as well, so obv it should be the most balanced out of all available options, that's literally how all similar games work, that includes MOBAs as well.

    Oh, I know what this is all about.

    If the game was perfectly balanced around 1v1, nobody would kill each other, ever.

    3. Blizzard don't attempt to make classes equal in healing/dps, they give the classes niche strengths and weaknesses, then balance based on trends.

    Your idea would work if you removed all classes and replaced them with 4 basic classes, (tank, healer, melee, ranged) and a handful of basic utility abilities shared... Like a MOBA, but even more dumbed down. Otherwise pretty nonsensical and clear you haven't thought it through.

    Isn't WoW gameplay already designed for the moba genre? All classes/specs are working that way already: each category (tank/heal/dps) plays more or less the same with minor utility difference. The rest is the same kind of gameplay style for dps specs with build/Spend or combo points. The major issue is when some classes get all the strengths and others are weak as shit. Ret paladin tanking and dpsing 10 times better than DK is no balance whatsoever whether 1vs1 or 3vs3.

    Classes that are good in 1vs1 have an inherent advantage over weak specs that needs babysitting to be good. 3vs3 balance is just as bad as 1vs1. The game is tailored for much larger scale content

    fuck 1vs1.No one cares about it.3vs3 Arena is much more enjoyable to watch as esport.

    Give every class the exact same abilities but just change the name of each spell per class.

    I think that's the only way to have 1v1 balance.

Honestly this is one of the stupidest things I have heard all week, congratulations.
    Pretty much this. There's a reason no game ever has been balanced around 1v1, because it's pretty much impossible and not to mention dumb as hell.

    I guess you are "people". Hello "people", how are you?

    Just because YOU personally prefer 1v1 and 2v2, doesn't mean that more than YOU prefer that. And even if also your brother, mother, dog and the person you passed in the subway yesterday shared the same preference, would still not justify the statement of "people prefer".

    Lastly: If you with your preferences were in the majority, the game would cater to you. Since it doesn't, the assumption can be made that the majority does not share your view

    I wonder if these forums would even exist without blatant troll posts like this one. It's like the entire forum is built on top of trolls, by people who only post to increase their post count. There's clearly no discussion to be had here - he gave the whole thing away (as if it wasn't immediately obvious) with the comment about it having "nothing to do with PvP" when it has PvP in the title.

    Report it, move on. Stop feeding the trolls.
