Rets and RBGs

Hello Paladins! I was just wondering what your thoughts were on Rets and their viability in RBGs next expansion. I absolutely hated having to switch to Holy for RBGs and was wondering if you guys think this will change in the next expansion? Will pallies still be limited to Holy to get into a decent RBG group? I'd like to hear from you!
Nothing has changed. We are still not wanted. What class would we replace?
Agreed, only class we're better than is probably enhance shaman and when have you seen one of them in a highish rated rbg lols. I'm guessing frost/unholy dks are gonna be the only melee dps with a good chance of getting in (unholy cuz they buffed disease dmg a lot)
We'll be fine, please dont listen to the naysayers.

A consistently high ranked PVP Ret paladin who says we'll be fine (Lobster)

Talking constantly 2400+ rating.

Arena or RBG's?

Because based on our new talents compared to that of the cookie-cutter melee classes (DK's and Rogues) I'd say we'll be left to fend for ourselves in non-traditional comps in RBG's.

What a clown. Rets are not wanted in any RBG over 1800.

Just becuase you have a couple of RET doing 2200+ doesnt mean they are viable or that it's a trend. Try to get into a 2200 RBG as a ret and see how easy that is

Agin, all you do is whine, maybe its not Rets in the plural sense that arent wanted in RBGS.

Honestly, how can you automaticaly assume either way? PVP at 90 in the new season hasnt happened yet. And you cant base it off of 85 currently, PVP isnt balanced for 85 right now.

At least wait till 90 to complain right now.

So we're not allowed to speculate about the new changes and how they affect our place in PvP?

It's clear you're just regurgitating what Lobster said, so I suppose I'm better off trying to pick his brain.
Any spec in this game is viable in any part of this game.

Speculate all you want, but there were those who were just flat out whining based on nothing.

You would be, I dont PVP anymore, but I'd take his word over others.
you're viable if you're good....what do you people not understand?

Total BS. Rets dont even get the chance to prove themselves because of the limitations of the spec and the fact that other classes do what we do better.

The ultimate proof is when was the last time you saw anyone ask for a RET for RBGs in trade chat? NEVER.

You'd have us at that...if it weren't for the fact that RBGs for the lvl 90 tier haven't started yet.

It's a whole new expansion. Time to see what you can do.
