I personally don't see a huge PvP imbalance that needs to be addressed right away.Do I get frustrated chasing Frost Mages around? Sure. Do DK's have too much self healing? Yeah. And don't get me started on Pallies. That bubble is just flat out cheating.But, I play a rogue. I just remind myself that everytime I'm saying "Damn that Frost Mage and his blink and his snares," there is a Warlock out there saying "Damn that rogue and his kick and his Cloak of Shadows," or a Hunter saying "Damn that rogue and his shadowstep and his dismantle." ("and his ability to avoid rolling a Hunter") ;-) j/kSo you see, every class has strengths and weaknesses. To be honest, I think Blizz has done a pretty good job of balancing it out. Again, Frost Mages may be a little strong right now, and Hunters a little weak, but I've wasted some well geared Frosties, and gotten absolute beat downs from quite a few Hunters.A lot of it comes down to your playstyle, and how you face each opposing class. Sometimes you have a better strategy than your opponent, and you win. Other times, well, I prefer not to remember those.Anyway, the point is that PvP is not a broken system. To me, it actually works quite well. Any class can beat any other at any time. Sometimes it is just harder, but some classes do more dps in PvE than other classes. Over time, it always changes. The weak get the buffs, the strong get the nerfs, and a new FotM class emerges until the next patch. There is no way to make it perfectly balanced unless you want to give every class the same abilities, and that is not fun for anyone.
