Please change DK CC.

I just wish blizzard would stop putting annoying catches to our CC....

Strangulate to get its worth we need to catch them in a cast while facing them....not a huge deal. Oh and just make sure you have a rune available for it.

Simulcrum - We must copy a spell during its cast or basically predict the future, and all they have to do to counter it is use some crap spell.

Remorseless Winter - Everyone has 5 seconds to counter this CC. It can be dispelled, kited, and countered with multiple spells. Even if it does actually go off it is still dispellable.

As Unholy

Pet leap - Pet Gnaw if unholy is basically bugged because your pets CC is reliant on him having energy so if he just clawed someone you will end up waiting 1-2 seconds before it actually goes off. Oh and that is with a petautoattack claw off macro.

Lets now look at the other classes.

Rogue -
Blind is instant
Silence (Garotte) out of stealth
Stun (Cheap Shot) out of stealth
Kidney Shot (combo point requirement)
Gouge (Facing requirement)

Ret
Hoj/Fists of Justice instant stun
Repentance is just a cast
Blinding light instant

Warrior
Shockwave instant (20 sec)
AoE Fear instant

Warlock
Blood fear instant
Spammable fear cast
Pet Silence

Priest -
AoE Fear instant
Pet fear instant just drop him
Silence instant

Hunter
Silencing Shot
Scatter Shot
Trap
Knockback (Explosive Trap)
Pet CC (Depends on pet usually a sleep)

Mage
Ring of Frost (Instant with Presence of Mind)
Polymorph (Also Instant with Presence of Mind)
Counterspell (can be used as a blanket silence)

Feral
Clone (Can be instant with NS otherwise is just after finishers or casted)
Bash stun instant
Disorientating Roar
Bear Silence using farie fire glyph

Shaman
Hex (Can be instant with their version of NS)
Capacitor Totem

We are literally now the ONLY class with a main CC that is over 1 minute. Not only is our CC over 1 minute...it is at 2 minutes.

I really think in order for DKs to become competitive we need to drop strangulate to a 1 minute cooldown.
yet ppl say the class takes no skill, but have a look at

Want to put more skill in dks give them more cc arsenal
You forgot charge stun, otherwise I support your crusade for use to have something worthwhile.
Dks have amazing damage. Sadly, that is the only thing they got going for them.

Survivability is pretty lame.
Control is lame.
Mobility is eh.

I play a frost DK as my alt for PvP. I do agree they need less restrictions/ramp up time on their CC.
