How is any comp supposed to counter that?
Uh what? RLS was the most OP 3v3 comp last season, nice try...
And I am running hpal/dk, not ret
And now we know not to let them get the 5 sec cast off at the beginning of the match. Im sure well be able to keep that interrupted as well when we're being instant feared for 8 seconds as well..wasn't trolling at all, was looking for a viable way to counter the portal

Since you asked nicely, I'll give you several:
and if the mage is Fire spec there's also:
All of the above are faster to cast/use than the 5 seconds it takes to cast a demonic gateway. As for the "instant feared for 8 seconds" unless you're all humping the warlock and eat a howl of terror with no trinkets, there's no way he's able to CC all 3 of you at the same time for 8 seconds.
He was most likely talking about 2v2 where warlocks weren't viable at all unless paired with a resto shaman. Also, I can't take you seriously if you think that RLS was strong because of the warlock. I was strong because of rogues with legendary/vial, the warlock was nothing more than a fear bot and a train target. As far as I know, RMP was just as strong and that isn't a lock comp.
How dare we find an actual use for our spells!!!!
Its takes about 5 seconds to cast, witch feels like a year in arena. Most DKs seem to go for me like a fly to a S*!t, and I'm not going to try and cast Demonic Gateway with a DK doing the salmon dance on me.
You are bad and should feel bad.
When in the history of all gaming has it ever been an acceptable thing to allow a caster to finish a five second cast? I mean, are you that arrogant towards casters? Sigh.
A) Learn to interrupt
B) The Gate is kind of obvious. It's not like you don't know where he is going to appear
C) The gate needs to build charges before it can be used. so it's not something that be used constantly.
If you let him get off a 5 second spell and then let the thing build up to more than 1 charge, WTF have you been doing?

I can't wait till later seasons where resil gets through the roof and ppl will be QQ'ing about glyph of eye of kilrog
that's going to be some fun pvp
it's about time warlocks get half as slippery as mages, druids and shamans
its a minor glyph, and increases the speed of the eye, and allows it to drop your demonic circle where ever you move your eye to
i hate that stupid portal, it was hurting my team way more than helping it last night lol so i totally took it off my bar. then we fought a couple lock teams who used it and they had the same issue. twice i had my shaman run through the enemy portal and it sent thier melee flying back across the screen so stupid lol
