While I do think GC could use a little more tact at times, I honestly don't see what the big deal is. The fact that one of the lead developers of the game is communicating directly with the community is amazing in my opinion, and leagues ahead of what was the case before Wrath. GC is not a politician, and I would much rather he post the facts and do his job than spend his days composing verbose walls of text. It doesn't matter how its said, if the message is the same people will still be upset by it, the only difference is some people will be too busy wading through the loads of flowery words to know if they should be upset or not. As for the actual nerfs, I do think they are warranted. I haven't played my hunter alt at all since Wrath hit, but I am not seeing them anywhere but the top of the meters, and rarely is it because they are significantly better geared than anyone else in the group. It seems like it is a little overboard though, and in particular, the steady shot nerf is imo, fairly unwarranted, simply because it is a core part of all hunter's rotations. That doesn't seem to me the best way to fix things when you have 2 overperforming specs and 1 underperformer. Lots of little pet nerfs that I suspect will add up to be an overnurf as well. Bottom line, I wouldn't expect things to stay the same. Its likely the list of changes will be significantly different before they even go live, thanks to the PTR.
