That's a bit of a stretch right there.

He said there's a relationship between class distribution and game balance. Which means they do nerf/buff classes when they are overplayed / less played. Like they put legendary daggers in DS to get more people to play rogue. Warlocks are the least played class, and they are the best dps class in game, makes sense.

Very sad.

Or maybe the point is they look at numbers as a warning of balance issues? Representation helps them discern wtf is going on and act accordingly.

What would have them rather do? Delete the rogues and warlocks altogheter? Further, warlocks are on the nerf chopping block this time around... So much for that theory.

Addentum: GC also stated that balance influences representation, not the other way around. I know you're upset about the shadow priest, but grasping at strawmans isn't helping.

Took my rogue alt through the full LFR for the first time. Died SO many times, I had yellow armor on the UI; haven't seen that in such a long while, I thought the graphic was from another game. Came second from bottom in the dps list for Terrace. Looted 16 bosses and Sha and used four coins all in one day. Got zero drops. I hate my rogue.

No, you (incorrectly) inferred that he said that. What he actually said there is that there is a relationship with low representation and balance issues. Which is almost certainly true. Underpowered classes often lead to under-representation, so it's one of the warning signs.

What's sad is how far you seem to be willing to stretch things to trash Blizzard lately. It's a little disturbing.

All I got from that was that people don't play underpowered classes. Thus the class gets buffed because it sucks, not because nobody plays it.

I'm still wondering why someone plays a class they do nothing but bitch about.

But hey what do I know about masochistic play styles I'm just a filthy casual who doesn't do "real" raiding. :D

Maybe I'm a bit too annoyed/frustrated.

I could use a hug.

I'd suggest talking your issues out. I'm aware that you have issues regarding the current and future situation of Shadow Priests. Can you point to a few key points that led to your irritation?

Also, don't worry about naysayers right now. We're talking about your issues, whether they are real or perceived is irrelevant for the moment.

I believe I've spammed my issues out, a tiny bit of utility in the form of Hymn of Hope doesn't justify 30% less DPS. I feel useless in a heroic raid.
People have already pointed this out and complained on forums/twitter about the pvp nerfs that are going to affect the PvE, but developers don't seemb to care.
