I REALLY do not understand what the developers intend to achieve with seeking balance between the classes. Are we to expect one day that a Holy Paladin has equal chance in a 1-1 with a Blood DK?? Some may say that this is an unfair comparison one a healer the other DPS - I say it is balance. As a paying player (who has a Holy Paladin) why shouldn't I expect to be able to get HK's just as easily as a DK? (sorry to the DK's, using you as an example rather than trying to single you out :)). This gripe is as valid as any other QQ over balance that I have seen.In reality, no I don't expect that. I recognize that as a healer my HK potential is tied to who I am working with. However, by understanding the weaknesses of the classes and knowing the stupidity of the 'average player - when coupled with a decent DPS - I can churn kills for as long as I want.As an example, an AV battle is going on. Alliance will always have people that try to gun down to FWH as quickly as possible, without regard for what the main body is doing. Quite often you find them running alone or at best in pairs. They come across a Holy Paladin sitting in the middle of the road at FWGY. How many do you think go charging in thinking they have caught an AFK'er napping? The rogue and/or feral druid that are in stealth with the pally spring the ambush, quickly dispatch the player, and reset the trap. Now was this a case of imbalance or was it simply that someone got outplayed??BG's used to be enjoyable prior to Arena. People would go in and treat it in a manner not dissimilar to a PUG PvE raid. There was a basic strat in place and people would work co-operatively to achieve objectives or respond to threats. Since Arena came into play, BG's have generally turned into an assembly of chaos with most players running madly around, wildly tabbing to find the next target and focussed on what THEY need to do to get ... achievement. IMHO, BG's are no longer a matter of skill or gear - they are simply a case where the side with the least number of 'all about me' players in it -- wins!!
