    Default General sense of these forums

    Majority of non-mage players are saying:
    'Mages are OP!'

    Upcoming patch notes say:
    'Who cares!'


    *Take a stroll through these forums and count the threads that say/show/suggest mages are OP, even the mage defense QQcrew cant deny that theres a flood

    A lot people don't understand the mechanics of Mage dps. They see a big number, and don't take time to consider what it took to get those numbers. Those numbers require buffs, debuffs, and cooldown spells to achieve.

    If you were to base balance on forum whines, then balance would never be reached. People see what they want to see. If they see a big number, the class must be overpowered. If they lose, their class must be underpowered.

    Few people are willing to accept the fact that their defeats are the result of their own poor play.

    I dont care if they have to buff up and use a cooldown, so does every other class.

    Difference being, warriors and rogues dont have PAGES of threads saying 'omg rogues are crushing us. warriors are winning 1v4 battles. rogues with redball = gg. warrior healing is op.'

    lol 'its ok i used a cooldown to kill your team!'

    Problem is simple: You think you're good and you're not.

    Stormcaller is one of the most defenseless mage souls. It's built in defense: crowd control and a -25% damage shield that lasts 10 seconds. Entirely designed to kite. Takes a large amount of time to build up it's "burst" damage.

    Anyone that whines about a SC frying their team is pathetic.

    There is one legitimate concern. Mages (Pyros especially) get more benefit from the red ball than other classes. They should either modify the red ball, or remove it entirely. That would do a lot to end the forum whines.

    But, other than the red ball, a lot of the whines are coming from Warriors and Sabs, who got used to being OP pre-1.1,. They thought they were winning due to skill (instead of playing an OP class). Now that the classes are more balanced, they think they are losing due to their class being underpowered, instead of the fact they their skill needs work.

    CC immunity for a class is not balanced, especially when everyone else even non pyro mages can be chain CC'd.
