Have new system -> complain about how boring balance is
You dont know what you are talking about. I know that because you are mixing 2 completely different things.
Balance it's the tunning between all classes and specs to be "equally good" in a standard environment. At least the best you can, knowing that some classes will be better at different situations.
The fact that a high-geared player 1-shot a low-geared player IS NOT
imbalance. That's the natural course of the power gains related to equipment and gear aquired. In other words, that IS BALANCE because it's an equality of opportunities, not in outcome.
What we have now IS NOT balance because some specs are just trash. So much that you dont see them a lot in PvP at all. I've played about 370 rated matches this season and there's specs that I've almost never seen, like DK, Elemental Shamans, Warlocks, Shadow Priests and many other.
Balance is about a starting playfield
where everyone has a viable good class. Not a system that negates the benefits of the gear you have earned to artificially make you do less damage to low gear players.
And to the people saying "What if I dont want to do PvP and not PvE?" Well, I have 2 answers:
1- Too bad, the game is made as a whole, not as a special thing for people who only wants to do 1 things. Gear came from dungeons.
2- You should have PvP Vendors. You are earning Conquest Points in vain and you cant use them. People should be able to buy gear with that currency according to their rates or something like that. I think we all agree on that.
The current system is constructed to please bad players. Period.
