It's too bad that the beta's just about over and that we'll be playing in such a ruined state forever!Oh wait.Panicking is still premature. Really premature. Some of us have been around the block enough times that we ought to know better than to get bent out of shape over one part in the beta process. Yeah, things'll be different, but they won't be broken.If you care enough about the game to be reading blogs about it then it's obvious that Blizzard's more than capable of doing things well (and *especially* so if you're writing the blogs!). If you can't have faith that Blizzard won't totally drop the ball, how in the world could you have stuck with the game so long?

There's a difference between panicking and prophesying doom and stating your opinion that you don't like the direction a spec seems to be headed. Are any of these changes final? Maybe, maybe not. We won't know until it goes live. But what we can tell from the changes is the general direction and plan Blizzard has for this spec. Having faith that Blizzard will make it work is not exclusive with disliking what they do.

Also, I think you forgot to read the last paragraph of the article, where Chase clearly states that Holy Paladins are not ruined because of these changes. They just have a paradigm shift (albeit a rather large one).

Certainly not. However, there's a strong vibe of "Oh god, these changes totally break our current method! Cata is gonna suck!" in the article and comments here as well as in other places, and it is totally ridiculous. It's like assuming cakes are horrible because you don't like raw eggs.I am by all means interested in more rational criticism and analysis, but there's far, far less of it.
Also, my commentary is regarding both the article and the comments.
