I was an angry ex-mage for a while, when I played mage before they became FoTM ferals steamrolled mages and the only response was "games not balanced around 1v1"
So I got kind of bitter about them, but thats a stupid mentality to have.
Ferals are not, and never have been OP. Annoying in some 1v1 cases, maybe, great 1v1 class, sure but never actually overpowered in PVP.
It kind of frustrates me how the same old classes dominate season after season, you know the DKs and warriors and a couple healers are always on top. I laugh when people say mages are blizzards love child. Are you serious? They have sucked in arena for many many seasons. Wow, RMP..compare that to the multiple faceroll cleave teams that dominate season after season. If anything, warriors and dks are blizzards love children. They are consistently strong, not just for a season or so, but like every single season ever. You have to dominate entire expansions to be a love child, and nobody has done this more consistently then DKs, warriors and to an extent RESTO druids. And resto shamans have always been strong, but underplayed, underrated and overly complex for the average player to master. So they really arent a "problem" until you hit 2200+ and start seeing skilled resto shamans for yourself.
I feel like blizzard is going the wrong way with so many of their nerfs. Ferals? Rets? Are you for real? I thought 3v3 was the balancing bracket, show me on the doll where ferals are dominating 3v3 to the point they need nerfs. Their nerf process is just stupid, I'm sorry but they have no clue how to balance PVP anymore.
3 healers incredibly strong, 1 sucks. What do they do about it? Nothing. Ferals and rets, literally not even on the radar of being OP yet they get nerfed. Warriors, dks set to dominate once again, minor changes, moderate CS nerf. Will it hurt their arena rep? Lol.
Hunters, suck as usual. How many seasons in a row have hunters sucked? Its unreal. Why are they so scared to buff hunters? The second they give them a slight buff and even remotely see their numbers in arena improve, they roll back on their heels and nerf them once again.
The only blizzard love children are warriors and dks.
