Compared to feral druids, yes, they are. Rogues have always had so many PvP tools that ferals lack, such as blind, vanish, sap, etc. Those are key abilities in arena. There's a reason why the classic 3v3 comp is RMP and not DMP.
Do we really have to go through this argument again? Stating that we have different abilities than you guys doesn't mean that you have nothing. Currently you're pretty much unable to be cc'ed other than: blind, cyclone, fear when zerk is down, scare beast, and hibernate
2 of those abilities come from your own class, you're claiming has less pvp tools than rogues, making the cc thing a fail argument.
I could get into the whole potentially instant cyclones/instant roots, but I'm not going to. Ferals and rogues are not the same. To say that we have superior pvp abilities is a rather daunting task to prove..And the reason the classic 3v3 comp is RMP is because prior to this ferals were pretty underpowered, and in need of buffs, while rogues were still able lock down a healer/caster via cheapshot/kidney shots, better than a feral. That was in wrath. It's early cata, cs/ks DRs are the same, everyone's testing out new comps, or trying old ones, so a new one with ferals might arise. With this next patch though I doubt it, sometimes it's nice to be ignored rather than nerfed haha.
in a reply to that, you have so many more cooldowns to manage than druids, currently in feral, we have 1 stun opener - pounce and maim - now main is pretty much pointless without 5cp and even then its only 5 seconds my friend... and in the real scheme of things isnt along time, and with DR its not even worth putting up sometimes unless its to completely lock down a class or lock down a healer, but after 5 seconds we dont have anything bar our cyclone - if its not instant requires a cast time, which requires us to be beat on a little for us to cast, and roots, your points are invalid..
