Is pvp completey broken?
As explained countless times PvP can't & shouldn't be balanced around BGs, which is full of bad players and unorganized teams. If it was then arenas & RBGs would be completely unplayable, particularly for healers.09/28/2012 04:33 PMPosted by GunnyThe problem you're experiencing stems from the fact that they pay absolutely no attention to what goes on in Random BGs. If it doesn't become an arena issue it will get no notice. Spending most of a BG rooted/silenced/slowed/frozen/etc is apparently fine as long as 3v3 isn't completely broken. Even then they'll let OP comps reign supreme.
You are basically breaking this down to individual abilities, which is all good and fine. But you're leaving out everything else. You're leaving out the cd times for one thing, and the fact that many of those classes have multiples outs while their cc's/stuns/etc are on cd, the fact that they have multiple ways to close the gap. Nothing sounds overpowered when you break it down individual, but combined together is what is making so many classes completely broken and its the reason while some classes dominate pvp and make it pointless to play anything else.

I get that. I'm not saying pvp needs to be balance for battlegrounds but blizz should be considering other options to making classes viable in arena that don't include giving them more control on top of insane control they already have. Classes that have multiple ways to avoid damage while doing high dps don't need insane control. Classes that have insane control and multiple ways to avoid damage don't need insane damage. Classes that have low control and low ways to avoid damage should have insane damage. That, to me, is balance. Giving everyone everything is not balance, it's just lazy.

Exactly. You assume that because I'm posting on my lock that I'm not including my own class? I'm talking about pvp as a whole and not with the exclusion of myself. I actually main a shaman, before that my warlock, before that my druid, before that my hunter, before that my pally. I'm not bringing this up for my own sake, but more for the future of pvp. Blizz is breaking pvp because they'd rather take the lazy way out instead of coming up with new ideas that actually focus on a real balance. Every class having variants of every other classes abilities isn't balance.
Also, as a caster you have to play smart. Running into combat is just asking to get focused, interrupted and killed.
