obviously the game is balanced for larger scale (2v2 and up) battles as Blizzard has stated that they do not balance for 1v1 PvP, and I understand that this conversation is therefore obviously focused on BG and Arena where things are certainly very different from 1v1 -- and indeed I have 2 very different PvP experiences depending on whether its a 1v1 or if its BGs/Arena. In a 1v1 situation (lets say, getting ganked out while doing dailies, or something) as a protection warrior I feel as if I am the most imbalanced class in the game as I find that solo, protection warriors can take any class in the game barring perhaps a protection paladin (or at least has been my experience -- I love thinking about how a ganker praying on what he thought to be a defenseless protection warrior feels after he's been stunlocked and destroyed by said prot warrior he thought he could gank). DKs included -- as a protection warrior they are more of a challenge then other classes, but certainly not as overpowered as I THOUGHT they were before I fought one. That being said, in arenas I have found a very different experience and I believe I have yet to beat any team with a DK on it. Are they overpowered? I'm not one to jump quickly to conclusions, and I think I'll side with an earlier poster who points out that we haven't had 4 years to form a strategy against them like we have every other class. Still, my money's on 1v1 prot war pvp being the most imbalanced =D
