Hi guys
So recently I've dust off my frost mage that has been sat for months and hit 90 to do some pvps
and almost every bg I went in ppl focus me like mad mans
dk/war/hunter/spriest/etc etc, its like kill on sight
and because of the ice barrier/cone of ice nerf I found myself pretty hard to get away in 1 vs 2+ situation and end up dead.
do anyone else feel the same way?
I feel like because of the pvp nerf every class is trying to r me as many times as possible before any other patch comes out

I don't think it's that bad, regardless of the changes. Gear is a huge factor in pvp right now.

Get geared. Even with 6-8 pieces of Honor gear you're going to get your butt handed to you from Warriors, Hunters and Warlocks.

And by that I mean you're gonna get globaled. Just make peace with it.

Is "molevolent" gear from the underground fighting scene?

Regarding gear, malevolent is definitely a huge upgrade from dreadful. However the malevolent weapons are only ilvl 470, which is something i just noticed this week. In terms of performance, the difference from full dreadful to malevolent seems to be your offensive potential, and pulling off this "100-0 deep freeze' that I keep hearing about. Once I got to about 6k resilience, I stopped having major survivability issues.

Even fully geared you will still get blown up from time to time, just need to hit harder than they do. Don't expect to win 2v1 unless you out gear them.

Most DPS classes feel the same pain. When you find yourself in a 1vX situation and you are capable of turning it unto a XvX situation (i.e. meeting up with your group members), always do it. PvP isn't just about what your class can do, but how well you can strategize. Going into a battle with less troops than your enemy is putting yourself at an unnecessary disadvantage.

People always want to be hero players, thinking they can take 1 v 2 everytime. I myself am guilty of that even in my current gear and I get globaled by a warrior and dk.
