The only reason I say what I did is because concentration has easier up time with immunities. I can probably burst you down way faster with combat spec......but I'm also likely to be stunned and merced before I even get a chance. Great spec for regs.....not so much for ranked.

Your post made perfect sense I was merely surprised that Combat performs well enough in PvP even though my experience up to about level 50 was awful, and had expected it to stay that way at maximum level.

The couple of times I tried ranked four years ago, that's what it felt like to me. Now, I recognize that I was probably not skilled then, but my experience was as you described...and though I did have roughly even numbers of wins and losses by the time I stopped. Not sure I will ever be skilled enough (or arrogant enough) to feel I am at a place where I can enter ranked again.

Good you wrote that because my favored class is Sentinel/Marauder, and if I were ever to consider it again, even were I skilled enough, that does not much sound like fun.

The way they shift abilities and utilities around every level cap increase makes classes feel really shallow till a certain point. Currently a lot of classes don't feel completely till like level 71. The consequences of level increases.

Its only like that in 4v4 solo where 99% of the time its 4 dps vs 4 dps....which unfortunately is where everyone queues because group ranked is dead, but ya, solo's is all about kiting and surviving so pretty much every class takes that approach with whatever escape skills they have....which is horrid. I don't mind group ranked (though I still hate 4v4 in general), but solo's is just.......no thanks.

It will never happen, but what I'd give for them to just burn 4v4's to the ground and remove it from the game and give us back 8v8 ranked. Even the WoW devs admitted at one point that the biggest mistake they ever made with pvp was introducing arenas to the game.
