Since when did the DPS forum become "PVP QQ"?

I came here to talk about PVE Dps and research viable specs/classes for 85-90, not to listen to people complain about how X class (usually their own) sucks in PVP, or how Y class (usually the class that beat them) is OP in PVP.

WE HAVE A PVP FORUM FOR THIS KIND OF CONVERSATION.

Please take that sort of conversation there.

And before anybody goes "Well pvp burst and over-time damage is still DPS".. Yes, I know that, but it's been my understanding that this forum has been primarily aimed at the PVE side of DPS, with that belief being reinforced by the fact that there are 3 pvp sub-forums aimed at this specific kind of conversation.

Thank you.

When this forum launched in Wrath and GC started posting on here.

It got so bad GC quit, because he realized the truth - 99% of the people on here will not listen, and will just argue.

Pretty much since GC started posting on the DD forum which attracted all the pvp'ers here and even though GC no longer posts here the pvp'ers never left.

Your understanding is incorrect. PvP'ers have just as much right to post here as PvE'ers provided their topics have to do with damage dealing classes in PvP (and not say BG map balance).

I've been seeing PvP related topics in here since the middle of Burning Crusade. I'm sure they've been around even longer.

Any public forum will eventually decay into a state of constant !@#$%ing.

DDF has always been the PVP QQ/occasional discussion forum.

Uuh, pretty much since its creation.

I don't believe PvP discussion belongs in the damage dealing forums. There's a PvP forum for that.

PvP people do damage too.... why should we be excluded from this forum?

The PvP tab has sub-selections pertaining to "Battlegrounds", "Arenas" and "Arena pass" however those are specifically centered around the tactics pertaining to the battle location.

Just because you don't have your own PvE forum doesn't mean you can exclude us from this general discussion about "doing damage".

Also, PvP and QQ go hand in hand....

There's no reason discussion based on each class's strength in Battlegrounds or Arenas can't be done in there, ie: in the Battlegrounds sub-forum, "Warriors are terrible in BGs and this is why." That would also be where there'd be discussion from a) only people who PvP, and b) Healers as well.

Unfortunately, that ship has long sailed.

Welcome! Take a seat. The bathroom is to your left. Feel free to take a mint from the bowl on the table to your right.

Again, welcome to the DPS forums.

Granted, rBGs and Arena dominate PvP, but they aren't all inclusive. Some PvP issues lie outside of both, others transcend all PvP areas.

The forum path is "Forms > Class Roles > Damage Dealing." Do you see "PvE" in there? No? Neither do I, and neither does anyone else if they have half a brain and aren't nuts. The Damage Dealing forums are for just that, damage dealing, not DPS, not PvE, not Raids, just dealing damage. Damage dealers of all shapes, sizes, colors, and patterns equally (un)welcome.

Cheers!
