Apparently the change wasn't meant to be implemented until next season, but now that it's 'accidentally' implemented, they're going to see how it goes.

that seems like a really weird way to do things...
I wounder how many changes they actually made this patch lol
No need for alarm – we’ll be hotfixing Dampening back to a 10-minute start time (with Arena matches ending at 20 minutes).

As you might be aware, the WoW Arena Invitational at BlizzCon was configured to have Dampening begin at 5 minutes, with a 15-minute round timer. Those changes were intended solely for BlizzCon, but made it over to live servers as part of the 5.4.2 patch. Again, this was unintentional, and we’ll be hotfixing things back to normal ASAP.
Which would make me think there will be another season before WoD, if they were going to implement the change "next season". Seems too soon to have it lined up for something potentially almost a year down the track
I don't mind them changing things, in fact I applaud it, but could they at least put their changes in the dang patch notes?

And post the finalized patch notes somewhere on their website? If I were just reading the front page and not playing the game, I would still think it was on PTR.

The mismanagement here is frankly embarrassing.
Wow this is a huge change. Priest teams are going to suck big time lol. Druids are probably gonna struggle some as well now.

I see TSG possibly getting good as well as any melee based cleave.
Brb rerolling ele.

That is in stark contrast to what Holinka has said on twitter.
Hey, maybe DKs wont suck as hard in 3's, now.

Maybe.

Nevermind, back to afking in elwynn/doing 2's and the occasional 5's.
what about res pet interruptable through deterrence? that intentional too?

what about undocumented dismiss pet nerf that you "documented" via twitter instead of the patch notes

what else did you stick in that we don't know about yet?
