It wasn't intended to compete as much with current raid drops, as it felt weird that a strength-based DPS crafted weapon was more attractive than some of its counterparts.
Making it a 3.5 speed actually made it worse than its counterparts for all classes but Death Knights. The other weapons don't suffer the same penalty, why discriminate against 2-handed melee classes?
This isn't even delving into the matter that is your (Blizzard Representatives) response time on this subject. You took over a month to come up with a one-liner of an explanation, meanwhile hundreds, possibly thousands of players are paying in gold & time for what is actually a dps downgrade for them.
You punished those looking to squeeze the best out of their character.
Bravo, f***ing bravo.
