it's almost like locks weren't the strongest ranged dps of the last 2 expansions
Re-read his quote and think it through before posting next time... he is talking about the issues locks had in Wrath Beta that carried in S5. Yes, it was later fixed. It doesnt change the fact that warlocks were 100% a free HK in S5.
Also, warlocks are far from the strongest rdps in wrath. They are highly represented because of their synergy with the overpowered Spellcleave by having an AoE stun that can be used to setup kills for his (usually) ele shaman partner, which is the true damage dealer in the team.
You said it just in a sneaky way. You are implying rogues can be overpowered because they take more skill to play than other classes (which is only a statement a fool would make).
em... no? Just no? You are reading whatever you want to read, hey? He is saying precisely the opposite: rogues take more skill to play to be on par with other classes, therefore if you reduce the skill cap but dont change the mecanics, players struggling now will jump to be on par with other classes but those already on par with currrent rogues will go over-board and be overpowered. He is warning against potential buffs, not asking for them...
As for my personal opinion? Well thats the issue with rogues: they are binary. The entire class is kill or be killed. The result is an extremely frustrating gameplay for both parties: playing against a rogue can mean not even being able to fight back, or it can mean the rogue cannot possibly stand a chance of winning, depending on outside factors (what CDs are up, peelers, etc)
