C'mon all those hunters sitting at 1800\2200 rating. GG what a waste of season. How many thread are needed to get a change? over 10k ? It's insane that a hunter can oneshot someone just by pressing 1 stupid macro ? Have you seen mofasa on arena junkies ? he have only 1 button on the bar of the vids that use 1 simply macro to boost him at 1800 ratings . This game is a joke. U wanna destroy PVP ? Good . All hunters just use this
/cast Rapid Fire
/cast blood fury(racial)
/use Malevolent Gladiator's Badge of Conquest
/cast Bestial Wrath
/cast Silencing Shot
/castsequence intimidation, stampede, lynx rush, readiness, lynx rush, kill command, arcane shot, arcane shot
ez win dudes really.

We are aware that certain classes seem to be doing very high burst damage, namely BM Hunter's and possibly Warriors, devs are looking into it.
This kind of burst seems to be tied down to the easiness of use of certain macros that provide a way to activate a bunch of powerful cooldowns at the same time, these kind of macros are far from ideal and they don’t promote skilful gameplay. A possible solution could be not allowing all these cooldowns to activate at the same time and overlap each other.

You may find here some dev tweets (scroll down) about this subject that so gently compiled for your viewing pleasure.

So oke thats good, but are there any plans to reset just all the rating. Kinda unfair they will get gladiator mounts etc just because of this huge advantage atm.

If you check the dev tweets (link on my first reply) you’ll find some possible hints of what’s to come.
There are some plans to address this; we would like to motivate high ranked players to keep playing and devs are looking into possible solutions on how to make that happen, there will probably be a blog about it as soon as we are sure our plan works.

Simply resetting MMR could work as a short term solution but it’s not without its flaws. Players would go through a couple of weeks of unbalanced matches and eventually, once the dust has settled, still end up having the exact same issue with high ranked teams camping for titles and switching to alts. Instead of using a temporary solution, we’d like to fix this. We understand that players are tired of waiting but the good news is that there’s finally a window of opportunity to fix this issue, so we’d like to ask for a bit more of your patience while we make sure our solution works, rushing things is usually not the best approach as it often creates more issues than we start with.
