I'll respond to your comment, Havitech. Blizzard doesn't balance pvp based on 1v1 results. They said they were going to balance it based on 5v5, but they don't do that either or they wouldn't be nerfing druids. It seems like they are weighting the 3v3 bracket pretty strongly in how they are balancing pvp, with the 5v5 bracket and the 2v2 bracket being perhaps equally weighted. I think this would probably be leading to some serious unrest if they weren't moving so slowly with changes.Hunters are close to the worst represented class in arenas in every bracket. This is because the layout of the arena is such that it's inevitable that a hunter will be in melee range of someone. Combined with any kind of focus fire by a smart team this quickly leads to the demise of the hunter. Maintaining range is almost impossible in a restricted area with LoS issues. So, according to what Blizzard has told us about how they are going to balance pvp, hunters should get buffs. The most questionable part of the buff here is that the only class that it had an effect on was druids. Although this would have made hunters a more effective countercomp class against druids in 2v2 and 3v3, it would have had the side effect of virtually eliminating druids from 5v5 where they are already an endangered species.
