Might as well be out then...peace!
It's not a monk problem specifically, though monks are more vulnerable to CC chains than some.

If you look around, you'll see blue posts specifically addressing PVP issues quite a bit recently. The TL;DR is that devs are quite aware that CC, burst and healing are out of control, and that monks of all specs are weak in PVP. So they know it's a problem, and they are working to fix it. You can't ask for more than that.
yeah know if monks in all specs are problematic perhaps the problem isn't with us, but everyone one else?

just a theory, but how bout blizzard listens to the pvp chatters and releases weekly updates on what they've figured out much like the water cooler style. Only problem is filtering out all the qq'ers from the people with reasonable posts, idea's and the like.

As far as I know, they do read the foruns. The PvP Devs aren't interacting much with the community and many people feel that distance. It's indeed, frustrating, but have you guys seen the interview posted on the Arena foruns yet? I found it... Promising.

IDK if you've noticed buy Blizzard clearly doesn't give two %#$^ about you quitting because the PvP sucks.
The recent hotfixes and interviews suggest that they pretty clearly understand PvP'rs are unhappy and are working to fix it.

But if you're not patient enough to wait for them to leave, particularly when leveling is so quick and easy these days, adios.
I'm not leveling another character to 90, it's too much time and very very very boring.

I should not have to be a previous gladiator ranked 2500 or whatever in order to have fun playing my class.

Right now the only way I can kill people is with touch of karma, and if they are smart enough to realize what it does and just CC me or avoid me while it's up, then it's GG.

It probably wont... blizzard isn't capable of balancing in under a year
I have taken my monk 1-35 in the last 2.5 days, and that has been fairly casual play. I do not suspect the rest to be much different...

If you have another high level toon then I would suggest playing that one until you are happy with the Monk class. Either that or spend a week or two and level up a new one. Its really not that hard.
I have high hopes for 5.2. If PvP doesn't get any better, I'll have to give up on this game also. They're too into pleasing the masses than making this game feel special. Blizzard will always be the best at execution, but I'm starting not agree with the direction they are taking. Vanilla was great, mainly because the whole game was connected. If you wanted to do well in PvP, you had to beat raid bosses for gear. BC was still alright, but that's when the game started shifting to separate PvP and PvE, which I just don't agree with personally.
PVP has always been pretty awful after vanilla.

Resilience killed it for me. Adding a PVP power on top of that was even more idiotic. I avoid pvp like the plague in this game.

Your playing PVP, do some PVE and be happy rogue...


Monk, and I don't PvE anymore.

translation: I'm a raider and I want to gank player because I'm over gearing them rather then out-skilling them.

HmMmM well...I guess you don't know, but the pvp gear in vanilla was better than the raiding gear. The pvp gear didn't have Resilience


Only if you were the highwarlord (so if you had a friend to share your shaman account to help ya) and it was like this only because the last PvP tier came after the last PvE if I'm right.

What I remember from vanilla PvP is that I was getting ganked by PvE raiders.
