The recent patch and combat rogue changes has seriously made me want to cancel my Cata CE preorder. Not only did they completely change the dynamic of the class (I used to have fun playing combat (as it was an ideal aoe/mobile single target rogue) where now I feel like a bastardized mutilation rogue (I dispise the fact that I have to use RUPTURE, I want my damage to come from HITS!).The entire model seems to be so broken that I really don't see how they can fix it in time for the expansion. Raiding guilds in beta, like Paragon, have also reported that it's still broken even at 85, so all this talk about "wait and see it will work at 85!" is shown to be bogus, at least so far.To make matters worse Blizzard, who has not a single Blue post in the rogue forums since I think February (and that was to tell off a rogue complaining about class issues) has yet to say a single word on the subject.So what we have is what is supposed to be THE top melee DPS class now far far behind pallys, warriors, deathknights and even caster melee hybrids. This is not the game i signed up for and I sincerely hope Blizzard get's their programs in mind and fixes this problem soonest. I know of a lot of rogues that have shelved their characters due to this issue.
