Not to fuel the fire or anything but many in the PVP community are pointing to a team that plays on the famed "Battlegroup 9" with a 3v3 team that contains a Protection Warrior, the team is at 3000 rating. Another team on the "Ruin" battlegroup hit first place in 3v3 as well with a protection Warrior.
Alot of arena players, whether they be either immature, unskilled or actually mature or skilled, they're all complaining about protection warriors in pvp settings.
I may not be a warrior myself, but I'm pretty concerned myself about it from the PVE standpoint. It's probably one of the most stickiest situations they've(Blizzard) had to face. I'm certainly really interested in how they're going to address this.
Obviously I wouldn't like to see PVE take a hit but with how Blizzard does things, you almost gotta wince in anticipation :\
Wish ya guys the best of luck on this one!
The most stressful, yet provides the most gratification..
