Blizzard, arena finals, and rogues.

General Discussion
So blizzard nerfed all 3 rogue specs 3 times for 3 weeks in a row. Yet we barely saw any rogue representation in the biggest tournament of the year.

Is it fair to say that pruning rogues utility and obliterating their hp and damage was too much?

Or will crying about rogues in wpvp still determine the future of the class in instanced pvp?
Ask all the Warriors that were in the finals.

...oh.
So what were the class breakdowns of the finals?
There were plenty of rogues there.

In stealth.

spriest
WHY?
There were plenty of rogues in the tourney, up until the semi finals... you probably just watched the grand finals.
Pretty sure there wasnt a single DH in all the tournament

Hey! One Warrior showed up

I mean sure, he got focused, and then died, and the team got trashed 0-3, BUT HEY

No rogues made it to finals but there were definitely some in the semi-finals.

Warriors on the other hand..

There was a protection paladin used in a couple of matches as well.

The finals were 7 playes, four different compositions, 7 games.
Today's tournament happened in patch 7.0.

Because they didn't have enough time to get used to the new meta.

Correction because Blizz didn't want to give rogues anymore ammo.
