Final confirmation that they do, indeed, buff by player numbers playing the class/spec in question and not necessarily by issues.

I think you're reading way too much into that statement.

Then he shouldn't leave it open to such an interpretation. Or not post that response to that question.

It should have been pretty clear even without reading the follow-ups that he was suggesting that if rets were really in as dire straits as most players claim, the class representation wouldn't be so high.

Though really, most players don't have a goddamn clue about class balance. The vast majority of people who have the audacity to say "X sucks, we need buffs" don't know what they're talking about. Or they're just bad. Or both.

Heh, I went with paladins cuz I thought they sounded cool, didn't even know they were kinda sucky when I started playing the game, and I was none the wiser for quite a while...

I imagine a lot of people are like that...

I started my paladin because they had flashier light effects than my warlock did.

True story.



OK, it also had to do with the disenchanted feeling from the totally awesome "CoD-SB spam" rotation. But the lights were the reason I picked paladin. Definitely wasn't the gameplay (given that you had to level to level 50 with pretty much only Judgment/Re-Seal before you got Crusader Strike)

I wasn't able to level a pally until mid-late BC. Not sure if it was the playstyle or my habit to play "evil"/shady characters (shadow priest was my farthest leveled in classic, with many attempted twink rogues and a couple warlocks. My first end game char was a 70 rogue in BC.)

I took over my wife's first paladin during T4 cause I was bored of just sitting in Shat for hours and hours on end after doing the Netherwing dailies. Then in T6 I did a double main (dual boxxing in raids >.<) and just went full on tank in T7 shoving the lock off to the side. I really hated leveling alts so my wife already having a lvl 70 just made it a bit easier to start the alt thing.


Now a days...I tank on both a Warrior and DK...but I just love the paladin (let's not mention the time invested to just 'swap' to a new main).

I love me my Prot pally. I'll still play one if it is the worst tank spec in the game, as long as it maintains some semblance of its stable play.

Ret? Not as much, especially after working on my fury warrior. I didn't mind Inq so much in DS, but for some reason I've started to just find it annoying. Multiple stackable cooldowns to manage doesn't seem nearly as bad, whereas 'every 30s, have 3+ HoPo and press this button to not suck' kinda blows. I do like the AOE and single target abilities and rotations though better than fury.

Been considering going to see Eddie Izzard live, so went to have a look at his tour dates - and the one day he's in my area is the day I'll be in London for a guild meetup. Oh well.

Our elections results.

Seeing that 1/3rd of Italians has voted Berlusconi after all what we've been through in last 10 years really makes me want to get a bag and run in another country. Anyone up for hosting a disheartened Italian?

We are full on disheartened citizens around here - finally got a center-left governent lafter the elction in '11, and they are more rightwing on most of the welfare issues (the ones people actually care about) than the previously right.wing government was (and could have gotten away with).

Did Berlusconi get enough support in parliament to become PM again, or will he merely be opposition leader? (and was it a real result, or did he rig it?)

30% of the votes, I think he don't have the majority by like 1-2% or so last time I checked... so that means he'll easily make the government fall. It's beyond sad really.

Don't know if the result is real or cheated, fact is it's the official results so far.

What's up with two weeks in a row of 1 am maintenance? That's four hours earlier than normal, and even if it was extended maintenance, it's still two hours earlier than that!
