Leaving the old post for reference. Here are the 10/28 numbers:
Methodology explained below so you can discount appropriately.
Top 50 teams in each BG surveyed and aggregated.
- Download and install Windows Grep.
- For each BG's 3v3 ladder page (community section, 3v3 ladder), right click on webpage, view source, copy all, paste into notepad, save document in a folder
- using windows grep, do a find in that folder with all the webpage source files for:
- figure out which class is class 1, 2, 3, etc
- using Windows Grep's data, paste into google docs spreadsheet and get the table shown above.
Yes, some garbage data like teams with only one member is left in here. This whole thing took 18 minutes, and I'm not going to spend longer on it. It should be close enough for rough analysis.

Looking at this, I see that the bottom 4 (36%) of classes together make up less than 9% of class representation.
Put another way, if everything were balanced, each class should have slightly over 9% representation on its own. Obviously monks being new make this not a completely fair statement, but still.

Priest specs are bugged on the armory, but there are a few Hunter/Warrior/Disc and Mage/Warlock/Disc teams. Basically, comps where something dies instantly at the start of the game.
I didn't see a good way to grab spec from the basic pages so I ignored that and just grabbed classes. Hopefully arenajunkies or someone else does a more involved armory scraping in the near future.
Funny thing is...
Mages and DKs were switched, I'm pretty sure, but that is a little scary. Conspiracy theory?
Funny thing is...
What is this sorcery?!!

Let's all take a moment to remember the Disc nerfs that happened in WotLK, why they happened, and when they happened.So your saying that they synergize to well with one another cuz if i remember right the disc nerfs were because rogue/priest worked to well together ....So nerf blind/fear dr's!?
