    The irony is great, isn't it?

    Melee survival lovers always try to justify changing it from ranged, a million reasons, a million excuses. But the second their precious is threatened, it's all out hypocrisy .

    I do agree that tanking has a lack of pull, mostly because its reward structure for playing well is non existent.

    However, the part about " it doesnt matter how many tank speccs you introduce" just isnt true. If 90% of the specs in the game could tank there would not be a shortage. Now obviously 90% is hyperbolic and would never happen but there is a line somewhere.

    That is your opinion, let's just say I'm glad we havent had more tanks given to people like you, purely out of selfish reasons.

    Yep.

    It's terrible that they changed the spec to melee. It opened the door for everyone and their bad ideas for the class. And those who love melee SV know that the very thing they justify happening to the old spec could very well happen to their spec. Nothing is sacred and they know it, but they got what they want so they don't care so long as they don't end up losing what they like.

    It's sad.

    there will always be a shortage, sure you might have more options but it wont solve the shortage as the shortage isnt tied to how many tank specc that is avaible but rather to the fact people dont want to tank. besides, i dont think its a good idea to piss off the survival players even more by making their specc into a tank specc

    This is how nearly every tank I've met has started. They play DPS warrior and they get tired of always having to queue. They eventually give it a try and decide its worth the hassle sometimes. If they were a Rogue they'd never have the option.

    now you're walking it back, first its more specs doesn't add more tank players. Now its well its still a shortage. But there is a huge difference between 1 in 100 players playing tank and 1 in 10/20/50/75. Still a shortage but would def add more tanks to the pool to groups get going more frequently. Unless of course you disagree with hypothetical I proposed. So I guess I should re-ask... If 90% of specs in the game could tank, do you think groups would still be waiting on tanks in order to run content?

    Also I never really stood on the side of survival should be swapped to a tank spec. I don't think it would be a bad idea and the core spells were there buts a melee spec now and im not expecting a rework. The thread had evolved past the OP and my original comment was a response to a crude statement claiming to refer to stats that as far as i know... don't exist. And as far as I'm concerned there is a reason why the poster I quoted didn't respond with those stats(they don't have them).

    Who knew people complained on the internet about changes they don't like... (both scenarios, because they are actually the same scenario respectively)
