Why is burst pvpers fault? If anything the opposite have been sought after since the first season in wrath.. But yeah pvpers design the spells..

Fox never said it was their fault, just to blame them.

It's very well known that most (if not all) class mechanic changes are the result of Pvp, i.e. Arenas. Before BC, sure classes had their individual flaws, but not really needing major tweaking until balance began to be the issue in Arenas. Since burst damage certainly has the advantage over damage that "revs up" we've been lucky to not have seen much more drastic changes in our dps spec up till now. It's unfortunate that arenas have been the cause of the continuous nerf/buff cycle throughout BC and especially Wrath, since it's such a fun part of gameplay, but even Blizz has admitted "Arenas were the single biggest mistake in WoW's history."http://www.wow.com/2009/11/13/blizzard-arenas-were-a-mistake/

I swear that quote is the most mis-represented line in Warcraft history.....Anyone should go look up the original interview, this person has taken it entirely out of context...THEY NEVER SAID ARENAS WERE A MISTAKE, just the way they implemented itPlease read your own article before you link it to justify somthing that the link disproves.PS i hate arena with a passionI hate not checking ones own sources more.

@XakloBack before BC, specs didn't require constant tweaking because classes were only good at one thing. All priests did was heal. Hunters only had one valid dps spec. If your tank was anything other than a warrior, you were screwed. Arenas haven't screwed this game over, if anything they've made it better by forcing blizzard to pay more attention to each class/spec. I doubt we would have gotten to "bring the player, not the class" if blizzard hadn't been balancing multiple classes and specs for pvp and raiding in BC. Right now the game's better than it's ever been, IMO. Every class can do all of it's intended roles respectably, even though crappy raid specs still exist (see: BM hunter, Arms warrior). I think that a lot of that can be attributed to blizzard "screwing over raiders" and balancing for PvE and PVP.
