Ultimately, hunters will need to have the minimum range removed, or in some way adjusted. Maybe reduce damage dealt inside the minimum range by 50%, but the current system doesn't work well for pvp. The minimum range makes some sense in a wide open environment, but the second you can LoS a hunter, they can't do a damn thing.However, hunters must have some sort of Achilles' Heel. Unlike any other ranged dps, hunters have no attacks that can be interrupted, making them more like a melee player than a ranged player in that regard. Throw in the fact that they do all their damage at a distance, and it makes it hard to stop a hunter without a minimum range. Overall, it's going to take an expansion to fix the current state of hunter pvp because these problems are not possible to fix in a patch.

It's interesting to watch hunters debate PVP balance. I don't think I've ever once heard a warlock or resto shammie say that they need an Achilles heel to make up for some facet of the class that makes them unfair to play against.Hunters need buffing, and instead of designing in another weakness to counter the buff, all that needs doing is properly tuning the buff so that hunters aren't imbalanced.
