Why'd they remove Blast Wave?
Btw, it dates back to original, not BC.
Fun is subjective, of course. Mages just don't need a knockback anymore, especially not a rather tame one like Blast Wave.
(Edit for clarity.)

Pretty much sums it up. With the fact that Flame Strike now has a cooldown and a slow attached to it, MoP Flamestrike is pretty much just a pathetic cast time Blast Wave with a dot.
That way we'd have Blast Wave back, and it'd be quite functional as an AOE with AE spam. Burst AOE and cleave is highly sought after in a couple ToT fights like Heroic Mega and Lei Shen. It'd be a pretty subtle change and it'd really add some pizzazz into Mage AOE, all the while giving us back the playstyle of Blast Wave.
