the truth hurts

honestly if you think you can just run around as a lolagon it's not going to happen. you're going to have to reinvent your specs or go with proven survivability + damage specs that work out very well with the current state of warriors.
you can literally run ANY OTHER SPEC BESIDES LOLAGON, and even LOLAGON isn't terrible. it's just not as good as it was. think of when pyros got changed. same deal here. they still hurt, just not as much.

got a bunch more ss's from tonight but it really doesn't matter
they're all roughly the same
broot is running ragestorm spec usually and i run my spec
not much has changed at all for either one of us, like i sad, we have to focus targets a bit more than before, but 1v1 it's seriously the same exact story with others as it was before. the nerfs REALLY hit lolagons because people on the forums complained about them as much as pyros. as for the rest, not so bad.
Well I'm not going to say I told you so (warrior tears) but it seems every soul that gets nerfed has a handful of people coming to the forums saying they're gonna quit. I understand the mages more so than I do the warriors. Warriors have been crushing us for quite a while, & now that they have to work at a spec & maybe even add a second macro it's the end of the world.
I've run across some good warriors in my time. I suspect most of them will adjust. Then again, the god complex is pretty tough to lose.
Paragon is what people were *****ing about, why even touch the 2h builds? The Ragestorm build wasn't over the top OP dps anyway.
Honestly I think the changes should have been something like
-Paired strike no longer grants follow up crits in pvp
-Lingering wounds will now only be applied to the warriors primary target
-Hurricane hits for 50% damage on non primary targets
-Strike like Iron reduced by 20% in pvp
Maybe a couple of other small tweaks, but hitting weapon spec, tot5r and rift fury all in one patch was a little much.
Anonn - 50 Guardian warrior now on Silkweb
Jairo - 50 Defiant mage originally on Stonecrest, now on Seastone
My spec still works.
I'm very happy for the hot fix. I crushed people 1.0 - 1.2. Then came 1.3 and the majority of warriors all of a sudden could pvp. Even the ones that were bad in previous patches. Now the 1.4(.1??) hot fix comes and things are normal again. Good players are still good and bad players are ... well not so good. Good hot fix
(and they finally did it right by making it affect pvp only! *joy*)
Of course, you ARE posting complete domination warfronts...those aren't exactly accurate for any sort of comparisons.

here is a screenshot of me scoring highly in a warfront (because this apparently counts as evidence that i am a fantastic player and the best at everything. note healing taken, i must be amazing, right)
now here is an endorsement of the fact that i believe these nerfs were badly thought out, designed and/or entirely untested
just because you think there are stupid aspects to these nerfs (titans strike? rift fury?) does not mean you are a bad player. likewise thinking the nerfs are ok is not a ticket to being generally insufferable and conceited

on a side note, why do warriors deserve to be top damage in every warfront?
now you only get it if you really work your *** off to get there. also opens up the option for more specs and smarter premades
