Hope you voted Xinika on the Assassin vote too, then

I also believe that Xinika and Wakalord are both a lot more active on the Assassin forums than they are on the Shadow forums, which contributes to it as well, so they've got more Assassin cache in that respect.

I *would* be really curious what it would look like if we were voting on a single Shad/Sin rep instead of 2 separate reps for each.
Yea, I figured that. It just seems so odd that the Assassin forums don't have a clear winner they want for their representative.

Looking at total votes I think yourself and Xinika would be pretty close for an overall both class representative if they did it that way. Though, some folks may be voting like I did; You for PvE on Shadows and Xinika for PvP on Assassins.

LOL. What is to know? Please tell us. Be sure to include your formulas.

1. Begin match.
2. Start QQing in the chat because you got in match with teh noobs
3. Rage Quit.
4. Queue up again.
5. Rinse and repeat.

Something like that? Kitru has tons of posts that deal with gearing, dmg, even DPS if you care to read. And yes, many of them cover pvp. There is nothing to PVP, other than what 5 warzones? Let me take a more serious whack at tanking pvp:

1. Always keep a guard on any team-mate getting attacked (if you can handle switching it mid-fight, if not gaurd your heals).
2. Spam taunts every cooldown
3. Stay in range of pocket heals
4. Spam DW every cooldown, and Force shroud against tech or force attacks.
5. Use phase walk to as both heals buff and escape when breakhout is on cooldown.
6. QQ in chat when team sucks
7. Rage quit

Sound about right? The questions I've seen posted by the leading nominated PVP assassins are complete and utter garbage, and if both Assassin and Shadow reps are PVP then this class is borked forever.

I don't think I've ever read a more disrespectful post shot right @ PvP on these class forums. Also, the chosen reps should not pick questions solely because of their personal liking. They should pick questions based on a community collective. This means like anyone else, they can present their questions, but it does not have to be the selected ones.

i think the extra free question should be about pve dps, since a dev did a whole interview about sin dps being bad and making excuses for it. some people think that sin dps is a bigger issue than tanking, but i do not feel that way. and we almost lost kitru because of it, and i think the pve question should force the devs to give us an answer, sicne eric said they are looking into it a month ago.

Well, we've got 2 months to wait and see what they do about the issues they've already recognized, which means that, by the time we ask, they'll have had over 3 months to actually do something about Shadow tanks (and hopefully Phase Walk).

Honestly, I'm *hoping* that the fact that Shadows were put on the absolute back end of the question order was meant to give them time to implement fixes to the things that we've already made a massive fuss about so that we don't waste a question on it. I don't really think that we can, right now, properly gauge what our question should be 2 months from now. Since they've at least *recognized* that we think it's a problem, it's got the *potential* to get fixed by the time we're able to ask about it.

My guess is that the fix will come packaged with 2.4. If not, I'd be pretty disheartened. That comes out in what, October? That should be plenty of time to do something as simple as nerf our self heals and give us 5% more DR. I'm not sure why this hasn't been experimented on already... nor why they refuse to comment on the issue.
