The new system is way more forgiving...but not so forgiving that I see noobs running around with 2k ratings. It's great because there's nothing worse than no skill noobs getting rewards they don't deserve...basically every time I see a DK with any arena title beyond Challenger I throw up a little bit...in my mouth. Anyways...I'm a pvp whore, I know my class inside and out, I have everything keybound, I've researched the best spec, and I know how to play my comp (I've been playing it for ~4 seasons! I should know by now!), but this is the first season that I feel I'm being appropriately rewarded for those things and next week I'll be picking up a nice Furious weapon >:PThis season has been a huge upgrade from S5. Sure classes still aren't balanced, but at least DKs aren't the beasts they were before (but ret pallies still need to be toned down imo). The classes honestly feel more balanced now then they have in a long time. All in all S6 is an apology for the horrible mess that was S5...and Blizzard...I forgive you...

Ret needs toned down? I can't even use Exorcism in it anymore. I lost a WHOLE SPELL. If you can argue that Ret indeed needs nerfed then all the previous nerfs need RETHOUGHT first.I also play a DK, but I can say I am glad to see them brought in line with the rest of the classes finally.

No...you were OP before you gained Exorcism, then it was given to you, and then it was rightfully taken away, and now you're back to where you started meaning you're still OP. People don't like dieing in stunlocks? Well I don't like dieing in the even shorter duration stun of a Hammer of Justice!Sure you lost an "entire spell" but it never really should have been given to you in the first place (at least against players in pvp, I wouldn't want the pvers to rush in here and chew my face off). If they took away your Divine Storm THAT would be losing an "entire spell".Having said that I do agree that Blizz needs to rethink...they need to rethink the entire way ret deals its damage because the current "I push button and I do 5k damage" model does not work in pvp and with the numbers I'm seeing retadins post in PvE it's not doing much better there either.
