Has everyone forgotten about PvP?

I've been surfing through the Healing Threads for about an hour now and just came to the realisation every thread is rambling on about heroics are difficult due to major healing changes and group CC's (and a lot of competence).

But the question is:

Have you PvPed as a healer?

Only in a random WSG with everyone running willy-nilly against a guild team practicing for rated BGs.

I eventually sat in the graveyard and just threw a rejuve on people as they hurled themselves off the ledge to a certain death, a kind of "god speed you, poor soul" if you will.

The other team didn't even bother with a dedicated healer if the stats had anything to say for it, or their organized play was just that efficient at demolishing the randoms that they didn't take a scratch. In spite of spending most of my time dead I still had more healing done than anyone else by an order of magnitude.

PvP healing at the moment is completely useless.

Oh, you want to AoE heal? Toss up a wild growth and maybe some rejuvs. Lolwut you're at 50% mana already? Everyone is dying? Try to heal through the insane burst of DPS classes get you no where, and not to mention, Try and cast a Nourish for nigh no mana and a smart player will silence you.

If you que as a healer in healing gear you are disadvantaging your team. Your better off to que in a dps spec with healing gear

3v3's and 5v5 will always be pure dps

You are doing it wrong.

Did rated bgs today, all players being 2600+

We fought reckfuls team, you know the best rogue in the world. They had a bunch of R1 players.

Each team stacked 5 healers because they were THAT important.

Stop regurgitating this garbage you see on the forums that healers are useless in pvp. I can survive against 2 people for a while with moderate peels.

Had we decided to do what you are implying...which is to get rid of all the healers and replace with dps because healers are "useless" then we would have gotten utterly demolished (we lost but barely).

All of the players were good, nobody on either side would die unless someone made a critical error or a healer went oom.

So healers keeping up their team until they oom....What is wrong with that?

You are just bad buddy.

Honestly, I am bad. I have no idea what is going on since cataclysm has been dropped.
Care to enlighten me instead of just calling me bad? How can I improve?
