Thunderstorm - Why keep 1-shot kill abilities

I thought abilities weren't supposed to one-shot people "when all the stars align".

It doesn't matter what my current health is.
It doesn't matter how much resilience I'm wearing.
It doesn't matter if my trinket is up.
It doesn't matter if I'm out of mana.

So why is Thunderstorm still in the game when Battlegrounds are becoming a primary focus for PVP?

This topic is valid because positioning isn't something you should think about in pvp.

I wanna know what the Shaman was using if he did 35k to you with Thunderstorm, and none of it was the result of falling damage. Unless "when all the star align" actually means "When I stand near the cliff at Lumber Mill and the shaman walks up and laughs before blowing me away." All I know at that point is reroll rogue for safe fall and glyph, or reroll paladin to bubble your butt before ya hit the ground, lol.

You still get knocked off into outer space to your death in BG's? lol, that's the OP's point anyway I think. Personally I don't mind tstorm or druid tidal wave.

Falling damage is a percent of max health, so the same drop that killed you at 80 kills you at 85?

I made a thread about this with Cata and rated BG's coming soon. They just need to treat knockbacks like disengage, make the caster move instead of the attackers. It still buys the space the caster needs and prevents cheese deaths. They got rid of having people who were feared (and on the epic rare occasion blinded) run off of cliffs. So why not this as well, especially before they throw more knockback mechanics into the game.

I love baiting that while I have Pillar of Frost up, I don't think many know about that ability yet.

Anyway, I too think it's annoying that the only answer to these abilities is "Don't fight them near cliffs."
