I started to do some arena matches, most of them 3v3 and what I noticed is the overall versatility of DKs, not only they can control movements (Death Grip), cancel HoT, keep a target in combat with their ghoul, rip a caster to hell, and bash your head with Frost Fever and Obliterate, they basically have a solution for everything. Coupled with a Ret, this is just ridiculous.Though there is one really great thing for us rogues, Frost Fever and diseases DoTs from DKs do not break stealth :D, making us able to vanish with ease and strike back. I'm 42/2/27, with improved Gouge for assured re-stealth for more Overkill and Master of Subtlety, and Preparation for another panic button and more Cold Blood and Vanish. So not having to worry from Frost Fever breaking stealth make me able to vanish anytime shit happens and wait for dismantle to pop again and restart the slaughter.Overall Rogue against DK is a very difficult fight, but far from impossible, one mistake and you die, its that simple.

I guess one thing Blizz is not getting is that DKs should be about control when it comes to PvP instead of DPS, DKs SHOULD NOT be able to DPS unless they spec blood (I'm still amazed UDK seems to do potentially more damage then Blood and Frost spec combined, seems wrong).However they should be good at keeping the enemy in check with diseases, anti-magic stuffs and movement control, as they are already, the problem is that they are also good at DPSing people, once blizz start lowering Unholy damage, enhance Frost controlling abilities, and raise Blood damage them DKs will be balanced and the environment will be balanced hopefully.
