Rogues in pvp 5.2

Rogue
So after watching a bunch of footage from the 5.2 ptr I can see that although it won't be another 4.3 for rogues, it will be similar. From 4.3 until now I have been playing my enhancement shaman and my frost dk, both of which will get utterly destroyed by rogues once again next patch. I've been thinking of trying out a new class so I was wondering which class (if there are any :P) that you guys have trouble with specifically for next patch.

Hopefully this doesn't turn into a flame fest and thanks for any response!
/sigh I should have known that I could not come on the rogue forums without a bunch of whining. The point of the post is this: Rogues will destroy my 2 main characters next patch once again and I was going to level something else anyways. What classes are most difficult for you to beat? That is all. Thank you.
The classes we have the most difficulty against is a well played one.

You can re-roll all you want, it wont help you against rogues or anyone else if you don't take the time to master it.

Hmm... the only whining I see in this thread are your posts?
Don't re-roll, just go blood spec...

maybe instead of watching videos of the PTR, you should play the PTR yourself?
i believe doing so will give you a more accurate opinion of the upcoming patch.

one of the only classes i have trouble with on the PTR in a 1v1 situation , is UH DK's.
Blood Dk's and seasoned Warriors are honestly my only "Trouble" however i do agree with Backstabi that a veteran player to a class will give you great challenge. Most Hunters and Shadow Priests as of late are reroll FOTM toons and even though considered OP atm are not as skilled as the players who have been playing them all along. If you battle a Warrior who is FOTM and then fight a Warrior who is seasoned you will notice a HUGE difference. I believe you master a class and spec and you can fight anyone. Everyone will always "and should" have a nemesis. Too many alts will cause finger fumbling and a moment to think. Playing one class is fluid motion and instinct imo. Happy Hunting.

at the same time, having alts will give you first hand insight as to how those classes works, and how to counter them more effectively.
hm... viiss when you say you have trouble with a well played UH dk are you being nice? i mean, really? maybe, i don't know.
Play one class, stick to one class and you'll have your highs and lows and make the best of them.
but yes, we will enjoy our highs in a few weeks
play many classes, learn many classes, don't get stuck in tunnel vision single class mode.

many of wow's best pvpers play MORE than one class/spec/toon.
