I find it hilarious that the server with the largest Allaince imbalance is named for a Horde city.I'm surprised the teacher for the "How to Kill Nefarian" assignment didn't consider it cheating to base your video around something already popular: would a montage of goofy cat videos have been equally permissible?Finally, I find it interesting that the pure-DPS classes have all lost representation over the years (the loss of Warrior numbers is easily explainable by atleast some of them switching over to the thematically-similar Death Knights). Perhaps another sign that the pure-DPS class in and of itself needs to be removed? (By which I, of course, don't mean that Rogues, Hunters, Mages and Warlocks should be removed, but that all classes need the ability to fill multiple roles. I'm certainly an advocate of mixing DPSing in with the other two roles, so that everyone in a group fills a tanking, healing or other support role, but also is expected to deal damage.)

I'd suggest that the drop in pure dps class representation isn't because people think they're inferior, but because the hybrid classes have become viable as dps. Boomkin, ret pallies, shadow priests, were all sub-par compared to pure dps classes back in bc/vanilla, so people who wanted to just dps, and do it as effectively as possible, would roll a pure. The addition of a whole new class with two dps specs wouldn't have helped them either.
