One small bit to take on, and a specific scenario:say your offense team simply cannot get that flag carrier down because he has heals galore.He caps, your team complains about the imbalance of healers, etc.My advice is, CC those healers, slow them, do whatever it takes to prevent them from getting far. You don't have to kill them. When that flag spawns you can run it out of there like a jackrabbit and back to your base to cap before the other team is even able to mobilize out of their base. If you can't burn through their heals, don't try to. Just leave them in the dust.This has worked out for me on multiple occasions, it keeps the enemy flag carrier away from healers and capitalizes on their lack of dps (since they traded dps for healers).The way around this, of course, is to split up heals. But then that just makes their flag carrier more vulnerable doesn't it =)Also, do not underestimate a mage as a flag carrier. I, personally, get an occasional jibe from people who would prefer a prot-somethingorother take the flag instead. But we mages are extremely slippery and what we lack in armor we make up for in cc and blinks.

A frost mage can basically be a tank in PvP due to all the shields and damage mitigation. Blow a speed pot, get the speed power up, blink like crazy, plus mages can decurse themselves... oh and they can do a full cleanse with an iceblock macro./cancelaura Ice Block/cast Ice Blockdouble tap that macro, make sure blink is off cooldown, then blink away from all those melee who you just left in the dust. Pure win.

better not try that if you are the flag carrier though
