Locks and the golden spoon

Been doing battle grounds a lot the last few weeks and (I am not here to complain about the way out of control amount of cc) but I am wondering why Locks are always top kills, top dammage and top heals. WTF? Balance? The golden spoon. Me thinks yes. Just another WTH in WOW's WTH balanced PVP.

Locks are getting attention because they were severely under-represented in Cata, to the point of nearly nonexistant in PvE. So Blizzard is giving them attention and nerfing more represented class to bleed those numbers, get them to re-roll.

You probably just don't have any good spriests or DKs on your team. They usually top, if good.

Indeed.

Also Destro locks snipe a lot of killing blows with Shadowburn, they didn't always do the work to get the enemy to low health :>

I would rather havoc chaos bolt tbh :) prob noob on my part but eh, I love double CB. And no, I still do quite a bit of damage, but nothing like dks. I can usually top charts only because I'm full mal and almost all upgraded, nothing to do with OP class.

which is why the top team in the us tends to run 3 plus destro locks when they can .... has nothing to do with the insane cleave damage that fire and brimstone can cause on a large cluster of targets.

Uh when the top teams in the world are stacking a classs it generally means it is pretty much broken in someway currently that would be good boomkins and destro locks boomkin stack is less likely because there are fewer good boomkins then locks.

Locks right now are pretty much broken in rbgs.

OK, I just looked it up online, apparently, there is a thing called comp, and you want more than one class for best results.

I cant quite explain, but look it up, there is lots of people talking about it.

According to this http://us.battle.net/wow/en/pvp/battlegrounds/ only 2 of the top 20 rated are destro locks, or any locks for that matter.

nearly the entirity of the top 20 are wintraders but great proof watch abn's teams they tend to be comprised of 2 to 4 locks.

Because we try harder...

Like they said in Revenge of the Nerds "..because, it's all we think about"

Season after season of nerfs have just meant we always go all out...now we have stuff to work with, the effort that made us barely effective...BAM.

Oh, hey, don't I see a lot of warriors at teh top? And, if I, as an afflock, do top the chart like that (and, sometimes, I do), it means my team blew hard.

Like, if teh best place to go out to dinner in your town is Burger King...you have a major issue.
