Top to bottom.
@Elaine, I'm also currently 1910 putting me at #3 on my BG. My play isn't the important part. Am I perfect? Hell no. I'm not god awful either. I make mistakes but I'm not playing to the point where I'm just horrible and not doing what I need to do. I'm also not complaining about how I'm doing. I even said my class was broken with CC and healing.
I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT MY ABILITY TO PLAY BUT THE GAME AS IT IS NOW.
@Kurain, I won't disagree there. Druid's are CCable and you can force positioning. The only problem is that in RBGs (not arenas) the mobility can be good enough to the point that some teams are running them as FCs.
I actually wrote out a long response and then realized you were trolling after seeing the 6k white hits on your "fully geared warrior" thing. Well done.
Druids were always viable FCs except for mid-late wotlk and and Cata.
Vanilla- Druids ran flags along with prot warriors.
TBC- Druids ran flags along with tanks.
Until tank scaling went WAY up in wotlk druids have always had a viable spot at running flags. To say they shouldn't be able to now for what ever reasons is not true if they have been restored the utilities to due so. If you are worried that it replaces some other roles no feral druid is going to be able to "hold" the flag as well as a tank. Run it possibly, but not at holding it which is where hand offs could come into play. Which was done in TBC and Vanilla as well.
Acting like druid flag runners is new to the game is not true in anyway. Druids have always been able to cover ground with flags extremely easy. Due to this I can't say that these changes were against the design intention to begin with given their BG history.
Edit: I will also say I got out of habit of competitive PvP Mid-Wotlk like most others and have just now picked WoW back up and consider it a staple game I play again. Sure I spot played off and on in Cata and such, but it was never really much. So, I'm still more in tune with how things were at the start of wotlk-mid season, and I also played competitively with pre-mades in TBC. I pretty much remember my druid's main goal there was to grab the flag run it back and hand it off to our prot warrior. Reason being I could cover more ground way quicker than anyone else.
If the game design as a whole has changed to purposely remove druids from this role I'm curious as to the reason why? Why remove an option from a class that was so staple to it for many years?
