Just gonna come out and say it. Look at our forums lately. The rift forums as a whole. The population is dwindling and we all feel it. I for one love a bit of trolling. I am not always the nicest guy on the forums, but at some time its got to stop. Our game is dying and we've degraded into just constant name calling and playground shenanigans. I for one hope this expansion announcement saves rift, but just take a look at these forums. Why would anyone want to come back if this is how the community is. I know this is not what the thread started as, but it seemed as good a thread as any to post on. Now onto the topic of the thread mista hit it on the head. Competitive warriors will always have a home.
TL;DR Most of us aren't kids, and we certainly aren't married so stop bickering.

Didn't read this through to the end, but I'll just state an example for everyone to chew on.
I do not disagree with OP (I do not necessarily agree with him either).
We had a warrior in my guild who decided to focus on his mage alt, and since almost everyone had HK gear at that time, he basically got all his gear pretty quickly, and had a few lucky drops as well.
He had played his mage for nearly 3 months. His words.... he can't understand why mages are so hard to play. True they are ranged, but they have cast times and can't really dps on the move, and the rotations are more complex than a warriors and less forgiving of mistakes. He is a pretty good warrior.... as a mage, alas, he wasn't very outstanding. Lack of practice? Maybe. One thing that did happen though.... he stopped complaining about melee being disadvantaged all the time (he sounded very much like the OP when he first decided to roll said mage) and is now back to playing his warrior.
Morale of the story.... grass on the other side is always greener. Take that how you may.
My only gripe with warriors is their lack of roles.... on day's that I happen to have a lot of warriors in raid, I can't really get one to go support (I don't expect warriors to heal), and we can only have that many tanks.... all they can do is DPS. Many warriors use this as a reason why warrior DPS should be the best... but the fact is none of them really want to play support even if there were a support role.
Recruit some devs so your warriors get quad damage on their ranged attacks.
