A competent CC'er was invaluable in the old days. It was a test of ability; if you could CC your designated target correctly, you were likely to keep receiving group invites. If you were incompetent with your class' abilities (here, CC), then you were not likely to receive as many call-back invites.If there were a petition to bring CC back, I would be first in line to sign up.

Therein lies the problem, while ccing isnt too hard there were people that just didnt want to or pay attention to it. So you had a harder time making groups spent more time building specific classes so that you had the right CC for the right mob and if it didnt work out you had to get another person to replace bad person spending more time trying to get through a simple heroic? Thats the reason 50% of the people couldnt beat MgT because the second to last fight was all based on cc.Time and frustration is all it added to the game.

My Mage used to have a nice focus Polymorph macro, which I used on 75% of trash pulls in instances. Now, the only time I trap on my Hunter or Repent on my Paladin is in PvP.

Needing some CC in raids is fine. Needing it in 5-mans sucks, especially on the level that some of the BC heroics (Shattered Halls, I'm looking at you) required.

While CC is virtually useless in PvE now, you're failing to account for the fact that it can be invaluable in a PvP setting if used properly. I for one don't at all miss having to focus on a polymorphed mob all the time anymore.One think I wouldn't mind though is another boss fight in a 5 man similar to Priestess Delrissa in Magister's Terrace. A boss fight that requires strategic use of multiple class abilities is something I wouldn't mind going back to on occasion.

totally... i actually started raiding in bc as a survival hunter, and i loved being the one who got to chain trap mobs during pulls... those were good days.kabshiel makes a good point though... some of the bc 5 mans with their cc requirements were a little bit nuts... needing a sheep and a sap and a trap all in one pull for a 5 man is... over the top
