Season 1:In a world without much resilience, Paladin/Warrior dominates the 2v2 universe. Everyone who is not a paladin or warrior complains. Blizz "balances" the comp by hitting paladins with 3 substantial nerfs. Druids take their place. Kalgan is still rocking his new season weapon in week 1.Later in Season 1:Warlocks and Shadow Priests figure out that dots bypass resilience, and another super comp is born. Massive QQ leads to resilience applying to dots. Shadow priests disappear from arena. Locks are still viable in all brackets.I suppose the lesson is this: Don't play the support half of a 2v2 team. Druids: You have been warned.

Ohh, one more:Early BC:Paladins with 100% Illumination can heal nonstop, unbuffed, for 5 or more minutes at a time, in sub-kara gear. The healing community in general whines, and Illumination is gutted. Now, every other healing class has received substantial buffs to their efficiency or longevity, while paladins have nearly been shelved in late sunwell.But, on a good note:The paladin community is quite possibly the largest source of QQ currently on the forums. While many of the legitimate concerns and suggestions have been given to other classes, improvements to both the protection and retribution trees have allowed those specs to find a home in raiding.

Ah well we already got nerfed for that. dispite the fact that ferals and balance struggle in all brackets and resto cant make it in 5v5.

i wouldn't call the paladin forums the biggest QQ'ers. shaman forums are *FAR* worse in that regard. the paladin forums nowerdays are pretty much the result you get when a group has been whipped and beaten for a few years -- some muted dissent here and there, but mostly just shocked fatalism about the futility of any and all effort, good or bad.
